Holy Koran! Sura 64 or 'Mutual Gain or Loss'

Unbelievers are doomed to lose.....

by Ferdinand III

Running totals from Sura 2 to 64:

Total number of verses from Sura 2 to 64: 5140

Total number of verses in 2-64, which preach violence against non-Moslems1272

Violent verses as a % of total from Sura 2 to 64: 25 %

Sura 2 to 64 as a % of the 6346 verses in the Koran: 81%

Out of 18 verses in this chapter, only 6 preach intolerance and hate towards non-Moslems. The hate speech verses are; 5-7, and 9-11.


Has not the news reached you of those who disbelieved aforetime? And so they tasted the evil result of their disbelief, and theirs will be a painful torment.


That was because there came to them their Messengers with clear proofs (signs), but they said: "Shall mere men guide us?" So they disbelieved and turned away (from the truth), and Allah was not in need (of them). And Allah is Rich (Free of all wants), Worthy of all praise.


The disbelievers pretend that they will never be resurrected (for the Account). Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Yes! By my Lord, you will certainly be resurrected, then you will be informed of (and recompensed for) what you did, and that is easy for Allah.


(And remember) the Day when He will gather you (all) on the Day of Gathering, that will be the Day of mutual loss and gain (i.e. loss for the disbelievers as they will enter the Hell-fire and gain for the believers as they will enter Paradise). And whosoever believes in Allah and performs righteous good deeds, He will remit from him his sins, and will admit him to Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise) to dwell therein forever, that will be the great success.


But those who disbelieved (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism) and denied Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), they will be the dwellers of the Fire, to dwell therein forever. And worst indeed is that destination.


No calamity befalls, but with the Leave [i.e. decision and Qadar (Divine Preordainments)] of Allah, and whosoever believes in Allah, He guides his heart [to the true Faith with certainty, i.e. what has befallen him was already written for him by Allah from the Qadar (Divine Preordainments)], and Allah is the All-Knower of everything.

This is about as clear as it gets. Allah preordains some to be the winners in this life and the next – these are the Moslem cult followers who will 'gain' paradise. Allah also predestines some to be 'losers' or those who reject the cult of Muhammad. Their mutual loss will be hellfire for eternity. Allah punishes whom he will and rewards whom he wishes. No free-will, no rationality, no Golden rule. Islam is a cult of predestination. Unbelievers are evil, stupid, greedy, rebellious, hypocritical and to be avoided. Thus the world cleanly broken into two.

Muhammad aka Allah, the narrator in the Koran, also warns Moslem men that their wives [emphasize the plural] and their children might be evil and their enemies if they try to stop the man from submitting to Muhammad [aka Allah]:


O you who believe! Verily, among your wives and your children there are enemies for you (i.e. may stop you from the obedience of Allah), therefore beware of them! But if you pardon (them) and overlook, and forgive (their faults), then verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

In this vein violence against your wives or children is sanctioned – if they 'stray' from Islam or try to obstruct a man's duty in submitting his worthless self to Muhammad.

Violence against non-Believers, or evil non-Moslems is of course the main theme of the Koran. A second and important sub-theme is that pious Moslems will simply, unthinkingly, and unstintingly follow this Allah deity, manifested in the rule of Muhammad. This idol Al-Lah is of course an unknowable, never-defined thing which has nothing in common with the Judeo-Christian idea of God. Yet this impersonal object?, or natural force?, or celestial deity?, is the only organizing principle of existence. Follow its?, his?, the thing's?, male moon idol's? commands as pronounced through his chosen man, the military leader Mohammed, a man who led 88 expeditions of plunder, war and brigandage (and how many forays of extermination did Christ lead?). Thus we read:

Whatever is in the heavens and on earth, declares the Praises and Glory of Allah: to Him belongs Dominion, and to Him belongs Praise: and He has power over all things.” (64:1)

Allah – whatever it is – owns everything. All people, assets, ideas, movements, thoughts, transactions, dreams, hopes (even the Obamed's?); all are the property of the thing Allah. No need for free will, thinking, rationality or individual accountability. Just submit to this idol's rules and you will prosper:

No kind of calamity can occur, except by the leave of Allah: and if any one believes in Allah, (Allah) guides his heart (aright): for Allah knows all things.” (64:11)

The key to the good life on earth and in the hereafter is complete obeisance to the Allah. This denotes a cult, not a rational approach to spirituality. Muslims cannot deny this. This phrase or some variation thereof is repeated on every single page in the Koran without exception.

What then constitutes a good Muslim? Prostration to the Allah idol, and following the dictums of his creator and spokesman, Mohammed:

So obey Allah, and obey His Messenger: but if you turn back, the duty of Our Messenger is but to proclaim (the Message) clearly and openly.” (64:12) and

Allah! There is no god but He: and on Allah, therefore, let the Believers put their trust.” (64:13)

This chapter weaves together the two main threads one finds in the Koran. Blind submission to the predestination power of Allah is absolutely mandatory. Violence and open hatred against those who reject the Allah cult encouraged and sanctioned by the deity. Reasonable people find very little religiosity within either theme.
