Is Quran from Devil? Is Anti-Quran from God? (Final Pt-III)

Whenever I visit any social media I find it is flooded with posts full of hatred against Islam, the Quran & Muslims. Criticism of Religious books are not a new thing, but the way Quran is targeted and Islam and its followers are targeted raise an eyebrow that why only Quran and not the Bible & Manu & Talmud too, whereas they all have full of so-called violent and irregular verses in it (I will justify it in my next discussion”Whether Quran is a book of violence”? ) Muslims are prohibited to analyze the religion of others for mockery in terms of verse no 6:108 (“Thou shalt not insult the idols or deities of others”). Criticisms of the Quran are generally in its ‘ACCURACY’ & ‘MORALITY’. So far accuracy is concerned it is clearly explained in the previous observations under the discussion of the Compilation of the Quran-Pt I to VI. What is projected through media or the politicians or religious leaders do not make an Islam. Its Quran and the ways of the Prophet constitute Islam. That’s why I said, “to understand any religion go to its Scriptures, not to their Followers”.

We will now check whether Quran is from Devil? Really?

Let’s agree with the Critics

Many critics do not even hesitate to say that the Quran is a book of the Devil. I accept their demand that Quran is from Devil, and it is not an authentic religious book, and it is not a book from God. It is written by some human inspired by Devil. In that situation as desired by the critics, I have to bring the differences in two parts distinguishing (1) the one as MUSLIMS SCRIPTURE revealed by Allah for the whole mankind and jinn (2) the next part as the Critics Scripture which is just the opposite of Muslim’s Scripture in form of Anti-Quran. Muslims Scripture is obviously the Quran that was revealed for whole mankind & Jinn, but as per critics, it is from Devil & unauthentic, in-human, violent and terror spreading book. So agreeing with them we should proceed in the reverse manner (1) that the QURAN, THE MUSLIM’S SCRIPTURE is from the Devil (may Allah forgive me but allow me to proceed) and subsequently (2) the ANTI-QURAN, THE CRITIC’S SCRIPTURE must be from God alternately. Both Quran & Anti-Quran must be OBVIOUSLY opposite to each, one teaching humanity & the other teaching inhumanity, one from God, another from Satan. Isn’t?

A small panorama created accordingly will be sufficient to decide which is from God and which is from Devil. I must request all the Critics to please open their Eyes, Heart and Consciousness to decide the truth with Honesty which I think is not so tough job. Indeed!

Allah says, “The Day of Judgement, The Day when neither wealth nor children will be of any avail, except the one who comes to Allah with a Pure heart (26:88–89), “Only those who come before Allah with a pure heart will be saved” (26:89)

Purity is of 2 types “Purity of Soul (Nafs/Heart)” & “Purity of Body (Jism)’’

What is this “pure heart” or “purity of heart” or “purity of soul (Nafs)” & how it could be obtained:

  1. Worship in one God-Monotheism (39:3)
  2. Avoiding association with one God (4:48, 62:3)
  3. Remembering the name of thy Lord and pray (87:15)
  4. To learn and teach Quran (62:2, 2:129, 2:151)
  5. Avoid concealing the words of Allah for personnel benefits (2:174)
  6. Fear of Allah & the Day of Judgement (79:19;
  7. Avoid uncleanliness both physical and spiritual (74:5)
  8. Spending one’s wealth (92:18)
  9. Avoiding Immorality
  10. To pray in a mosque founded on righteousness since the very fist day
  11. By avoiding advantages for a better return & favour
  12. Avoiding all major & minor sins.

Major Sins as per Quran & Hadith (Unforgivable Sins until repented with a declaration that it will not be repeated again or what Allah decides, specifically mentioned by Prophet)

  • i) Association with Allah
  • ii) Sorcery
  • iii) Murder/ Genocide/ Pogrom/ Massacre etc
  • iv) Usury
  • v) Grabbing the property of orphans
  • vi) Running away from the battlefield
  • vii) Maligning & accusing falsely any chaste women

(Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 6857, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 89)

  • viii) Insulting & Disobedience to Parents
  • xi) Lies/Deception/Hypocrisy/Fakes

(Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 2511, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 87)

  • x) Slandering
  • xi) Bearing false witness/testimony

(Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 5632, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 88)

  • xii) Attack the reputation of a Muslim man without just cause
  • xiii) Insult twice in response to one insult. (Sunan Abī Dāwūd 4877)
  • xiv) Infanticide without any valid reasons
  • xv) Adultery including Homosex (Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 5655, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 86)
  • xvi) Repeated minor sins (Sahih Musnad Aḥmad 3808 & Tafsīr al-Ṭabarī 9207)

Other Sins that make heart similarly impure & corrupt as per Quran & Hadith :

Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin. Have you not seen those who claim themselves to be pure? Rather, Allah purifies whom He wills, and injustice is not done to them, even as much as a fiber inside a date seed. Look how they invent about Allah untruth, and sufficient is that as a manifest sin. (4:48–50)

Purity of Body (as per Quran & Hadith mainly)

Washing the body part by water after urinating and defecating, If water is not available then use soil,

Bath at least once a day,

Wudu (washing externally) 5 times a day,

Miswak (brushing teeth) 5 times a day,

Perfume (itr) every day,

Oiling & combing of hairs,

Nails cut, armpit & pubic hair cut at least once a week,

Cleanliness by Ghusl (bath) after menstruation & sexual discharge (both men & women),

Washing hands before eating,

Quarantine during epidemic & pandemic,

Prevention from infectious diseases like leprosy, TB etc,

Diseases should be treated

Eating 1/3 part of stomach, drink 1/3 part & for air 1/3 part.

Al-Miqdam ibn Ma’d reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The son of Adam cannot fill a vessel worse than his stomach, as it is enough for him to take a few bites to straighten his back. If he cannot do it, then he may fill it with a third of his food, a third of his drink, and a third of his breath. “Source: Sunan al-Tirmidhī 2380”

Drink sitting in two or three breaks,

Sleeping on the right side,

Early to bed and early to rise for perfect sleep, health and morning salah.

Wearing clean clothes (74:4),

Wearing the best available dress for mosque

Avoid uncleanliness both physical and spiritual (74:5),

Washing the dead and burial as early as possible etc.

These are all as per the ways of Prophet (all are in Hadith) or as per the direction of Quran.

Mockery of Quran is not a new things, Allah has already informed Muslims about this situation and how to deal in such situations:

It is a modern culture to malign, mock and ridicule every good thing in Quran, Islam, and Muslims. It seems the people have some sticky anti-Quran allergens inside their frontal cerebrum. Islam abolished slavery in 610 CE and there were only a few instances of slavery after that among Muslim countries. But this small gallery of slaves will make it clear how immaculately they blame slavery as a Muslim hierarchy in spite of the fact that the SLAVE GALLERY speaks something different truth. (All the pictures have been collected from Google & Wikipedia for the sake of educational purposes only)

(All the pictures have been collected from Google & Wikipedia for the sake of educational purposes only, It should be taken adversely or politically)

SLAVERY HAS NOT YET ERADICATED, IT HAS JUST TRANSFORMED FROM ONE LIMITED MANIFEST SPECIFIC GROUP TO UNLIMITED POPULATION HIDING ITSELF WITHIN A FEW OF THEM.

(Kindly note, Jaziya [a tax for maintenance & security of Non-Muslims in the state of Muslims] are completely abolished and not a single Muslim country charges it from its non-Muslim citizens now. Rather they enjoy a tax-free completely secured lifestyle there whereas Muslims have to pay Zakat @ 2.5 % in form of annual charity which is mandatory)

Allah swears a mighty oath
“I do swear by the receding stars, those that run and disappear!
Nay, I swear by the locations of the stars
and this, if only you could know, what a mighty oath it is!
By the heaven and the night-comer!
and what do you know about what the Night-Comer is?
It is a star of piercing brightness.
and when the sun will be folded up,
and when the stars fall down losing their luster,
and when the sky is stripped away,
and when the mountains will be removed,
and when the oceans will boil over with a swell,
and when the stars will be extinguished,
and when the sky is torn apart,
and when the mountains will be crushed,
and when the souls are joined with their bodies,
and when the records ˹of deeds˺ are laid open,
and there is no human being, but there is a watcher over him.
and for what Day has all this been set?
surely it is the Day of Verdict
when the messengers are summoned
and when Hell-fire is set ablaze
and when Paradise is brought near
then every soul will know what it has brought forth”.
Collected from Quran, verses (56: 75–76, 77:8–13, 81:1–16 & 86:1–3)

Now my Q is “ STILL QURAN IS A BOOK FROM THE DEVIL” & REALLY DOES QURAN TEACHES VIOLENCE”? If yes then no one can help you from being an insane human devoid of cerebrum & cerebellum.

Verily, this is the way of Allah, leading straight: follow it: follow not other paths: for you will be separated from His ways, thus doth He commands you, that ye may be righteous (6:153)

But most of them believe not in Allah without associating others as partners with Him! (12:100).

Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin (4:48)

How could an illiterate prophet create a classroom of SUCH AN ELEVATED Moral Education & ETHICS in 609 CE without any knowledge of SOCIETY? My simple & plain Q is” WHERE FROM DID PROPHET MUHAMMAD (ﷺ) GOT THIS KNOWLEDGE”? This is my Q indeed of course for those who spread Quran is written by Prophet.

By the way, I am not a fanatic Muslim (terms 1980’s), neither terrorist Muslims (term 1990’s) nor an orthodox Muslim (term 2K’s), and not at all so-called the Radical Muslim OR ISLAMIST (this is the latest one used in 2021). So I dared to accept the concept of critics who declares the Quran as a book of the devil, the Quran as a manipulated book, the Quran written by a human or the Quran is not what it was revealed.

Well then let it be a Book from the Devil which is a sea of pearls full of morals, ethics, and humanity. Read the Scriptures not the followers.

An analysis has provided a complete scenario that which is the Book from Allah and which one is from the Devil.

It can be concluded that even if the critics understand that Quran is perfect with no anomalies they are never going to have faith in it as in terms of Friedrich Nietzsche, even if people understand the truth they won’t accept it as they don’t want to destroy their castle of illusion. It is not understood that why instead of observing the significance and the utility of each and every verse of the Quran and its application in human life, why do they waste their time in analyzing all the foolish issues like whether it was revealed by God or Devil, whether it was written by God or Human, whether its compilation was perfect or something missing, whether it matches with its manuscripts or manuscripts were burnt, etc. It seems there is only motive behind it to make more and more people away from the Quran propagating all these irregular aspects which have no concern with its contents. THAT’S WHY THE CONVERTEES/ REVERTEES ARE USUALLY SEEN TO QUOTE, THAT WHEN THEY READ QURAN, THEY ARE AMAZED BY ITS TRUTH WHICH THEY USUALLY FOUND TO BE MIS-PROPAGATED IN A MASSIVE, overwhelming & irresistible manner.

INTERCESSION & RETALIATION OF QURAN:

1. It was narrated by Ibn Abi Shaybah (30676) and ad-Daarimi (3325) from ash-Sha‘bi, from Ibn Mas‘ood who said: “The Qur’an will come on the Day of Resurrection and will intercede for its companion, and it will lead him to Paradise, or it will come for a person to testify against him and will drive him to Hell. Ash-Sha‘bi did not hear from Ibn Mas‘ood, as it says in al-Maraaseel by Ibn Abi Haatim (p. 25).

2. Ibn Hibbaan narrated in his Saheeh (124) from Jaabir that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The Qur’an is an intercessor whose intercession will be accepted and an opponent whose testimony will be accepted. Whoever puts it in front of him, it will lead him to Paradise, and whoever puts it behind his back, it will drive him to Hell.” Classed as Saheeh (Correct & acceptable) by al-Albaani in as-Saheehah

3. Lastly, I fear the last line of this big Hadith which stirred & shook me as I have dared to verify the authenticity of the Quran.

It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “The believers will be gathered on the Day of Resurrection, inspired or worried. And they will say: ‘If we seek someone to intercede for us with our Lord, we may find relief from our situation.’ So they will go to Adam and will say: ‘You are Adam, the father of mankind. Allah created you with His Hand and His angels prostrated to you. Intercede for us with your Lord, that He might grant us relief from our situation.’ He will say: ‘I am not the one,’ and he will mention to them and complain of the sin that he committed. He will feel too shy to do that (and will say): ‘Rather go to Nuh, for he is the first Messenger whom Allah sent to the people of earth.’ So they will go to him, but he will say: ‘I am not the one,’ and he will mention of how he asked of Allah that of which he had no knowledge.* He will feel too shy to do that (and will say): ‘Rather go to the Close Friend of the Most Merciful, Ibrahim.’ So they will go to him and he will say: ‘I am not the one. Rather go to Musa, a slave to whom Allah spoke and to whom He gave the Torah.’ So they will go to him and he will say: ‘I am not the one,’ and he will mention how he killed a soul, not in retaliation for murder (and will say): ‘Rather go to ‘Isa, the slave of Allah and His Messenger, the Word of Allah and a spirit created by Him.’ So they will go to him, but he will say: ‘I am not the one. Rather go to Muhammad (ﷺ), a slave whose past and future sins Allah forgave.’ So they will come to me and I will go with them.” — There was a similar report from Hasan who added (the Prophet (ﷺ) said: ) And I will walk between two rows of the believers.” Then he went back to the Hadith of Anas. — And he said: “And I will ask my Lord for permission and permission will be given to me. When I see Him I will fall down prostrating, and I will be left as long as Allah wills to leave me. Then it will be said: ‘Get up, O Muhammad (ﷺ). Speak, you will be heard; ask, you will be given; intercede, your intercession will be accepted.’ I will praise Him with praise that He will teach me, then I will intercede, and a limit will be set. Then they will be admitted to Paradise, and I will come back a second time. When I see Him I will fall down prostrating, and I will be left as long as Allah wills to leave me. Then it will be said: ‘Get up, O Muhammad (ﷺ). Speak, you will be heard; ask, you will be given; intercede, your intercession will be accepted.’ I will praise Him with praise that He will teach me, then I will intercede, and a limit will be set. Then they will be admitted to Paradise, and I will come back a third time. When I see Him I will fall down prostrating, and I will be left as long as Allah wills to leave me. Then it will be said: ‘Get up, O Muhammad (ﷺ). Speak, you will be heard; ask, you will be given; intercede, your intercession will be accepted.’ I will praise Him with praise that He will teach me, then I will intercede, and a limit will be set. Then they will be admitted to Paradise, and I will come back a fourth time and will say: ‘O Lord, there is no one left except those who are detained by the Qur’an.’” (Sunan Ibn Majah 4312)
Qatadah (the Tabi’ee in the chain) would narrate after this hadith that Anas (ra) said “Those who believed & said ‘La illaha illa Allah’ (there is no god worthy to be worshipped except Allah) and had the weight of a grain of barley of goodness in his heart will come out of the Fire, and those who believed & said ‘La illaha illa Allah’ and had a weight of a grain of wheat of goodness in his heart will come out of the Fire, and those who believed & said ‘La illaha illa Allah’ and had a weight of a grain of dust of goodness in his heart will come out of the Fire.” [Sunan Ibn Majah 4312]

O Allah, save all Muslims from the Curse of Quran and Muslims being detained by Quran till the doors of Hell & Paradise is closed finally, Mercy upon all Muslims O lord before finalization of eternal doom. Ameen

“Let the scriptures be as it is whether it’s changed or unchanged or authentic or unauthentic whatever it may be today. The Book is to be judged by its contents and its applicability, and this must be the point of discussion from where arise the belief upon it with Reason & Reasoning”. But please don’t misinterpret.

Much injustice has been done with Quran. It is presented as the Book of Jihad and Talaq ONLY. But why, To be honest, why do they hide the verses related to Science, Signs, History, Jurisprudence, Economy, Philosophy, Ethics, Humanity, etc. Quran is in the real sense a “zipped knowledge” related to Life, Universes, and Humanity. I try my best to make people understand that Islam can not be propagated by the sword, it is only by reason and by reasoning without any compulsion, otherwise, it would be rejected. I am a reader of Different Religions. Views are my personal, neither fatwa nor rules or directions. I believe in Quran’s Chapter 3, Verse 64; which says; “O People of the Scriptures, come to the common verse in all the religious scriptures that “We worship not except One God (Allah) and associate nothing with Him and take not anything as lord instead of Allah (One God). But if they differ, then say, “Bear witness that we are Muslims who submit to Allah (One God) alone”

NEXT DOES QURAN TEACHES VIOLENCE

Islam is to be believed with reason & reasoning otherwise there is no compulsion. I read Different Religions, Views are my personal according to Quran & Sunnah.
