4.0 We, Our and Us Commit Abominable Acts for Allah
Many people have questioned why throughout the Qur’an Allah is referred to in plural terms as “We, Our and Us.” It is strange that Islamic religious leaders and scholars have not been truthful to reveal that the Qur’an explicitly identifies a party of men that perform chastisements, warnings, and punishments for Allah.
Not obvious to the average reader or devout follower of the Qur’an is that it was about two decades after Muhammad’s death that a religious party gathered and assembled his revelations to form the Qur’an. More importantly, they also incorporated into the Qur’an the authority to invite goodness, enjoin equity, and forbid evil. This party is uniquely sanctioned in the Qur’an by the sura verse below.
Sura 3:105. Let there be from among you a party whose business it should be to invite goodness, to enjoin equity and to forbid evil. It is they who shall prosper.
This sura provides a clear statement that a party of religious leaders is authorized to enforce their judgment and any necessary actions to act in the name of Allah. The following subsections will reveal that indeed there is a party of men that, throughout the Qur’an, are repeatedly identified with the plural pronouns “we,” “our” and “us.” It is this party of organized religious leaders that implement the many admonitions, warnings, and punishments in the Qur’an. We, Our and Us surfaces throughout the Qur’an not as Allah, the all forgiving and merciful God, but as fanatical aggressors who are responsible for the destruction of many towns and killing of innocent people using the authority of Allah.
To examine the plurality of Allah is really a party of men let us begin with Sura 96. It is the first revelation given to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel. It appears towards the end of the Qur’an because suras were assembled by their length. This sura sets the tone for the rest of his revelations. It conveys fear and terror for those who reject the Islamic God Allah.
After many years of reflection, the Christian fears of a last judgment and the punishment of idolaters in hell surfaced in Muhammad’s mind. Such revelations have occurred to men who have had a deep conviction of God through community exposure, intensive study, and inward reflection. This was true for Muhammad, as it had been for Ikhnaton (Amenhotep IV), Moses, and Jesus. It was the tenor of their bodily and mental makeup, a sounding board so to speak, that compelled their god to reveal morality and righteousness for his creations. However, in Sura 96, instead of propounding love of one’s brothers and sisters throughout the world, Allah only reflects the fear that stressed Muhammad’s vision of sinners being dragged by their forelocks into hell.
Sura 96. In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Ever Merciful.
Recite in the name of thy Lord who created everything. He created man from a clot of blood. Recite, for thy Lord is Most Beneficent, Who has taught by the pen, taught man that which he knew not.
Man does indeed transgress, because he considers himself self-sufficient. Surely, unto thy Lord is the return. Knowest thou him who obstructs a servant of ours when he stands in Prayer?
Tell me, if he who prays follows the guidance and enjoins righteousness, and he who obstructs rejects the truth and turns his back on it, what will be the end of this last one? We will surely drag him by the forelock, the forelock of a lying, sinful one. Then let him call his associates, we too will call our guardians of hell.
Then follow not him, but prostrate thyself and draw nearer to us.
In this first revelation, the devout believer is quickly introduced to the idea that man considers himself self-sufficient and will transgress from belief in Allah. But instead of acknowledging the retribution coming from Allah, the Qur’an introduces the entity “we,” which are religious leaders that speak for Allah. This multiple entity becomes evident with the admonition, “We will surely drag him by the forelock, the forelock of a lying, sinful one.” This cannot be the most gracious and ever merciful God because He does not need “we” partners or associates. If God is the most powerful entity in the universe, there is no need for any assistance by a party of men referred to as “we.”
Most importantly, God would never reduce himself to that of an animal by dragging one of His creations by the forelock of his hair. This statement brings to light that there is a party of Muslims, religious leaders that are making decisions and acting for God without his authority. This party of men announces themselves again by stating, “Then let him call his associates, We too will call Our guardians of hell.” Does God need to assist a party of men with His guardians of hell?
The last line of the sura states, “Then follow not him, but prostrate thyself and draw nearer to Us.” It is clear that it is a party of men that uphold, instruct, spread, and enforce the revelations received by Muhammad. It would have been accurate to have stated, “draw nearer to God.” Another translation of the Qur’an by Dr. Syed Vickar Ahamed, changed the ending to, “and bring yourself closer (to Allah)!” 13 This is an obvious effort by Dr. Ahmed to replace the reference “to Us” because it implies the existence of a party of men. His changes to Sura 96 are shown below:
96.17: Then, let him call (for help) to his own Party (of friends):
96.18: We will call the angels of punishment (to deal with him)!
96.19: But no! Do not pay any attention to him: But prostrate and bring yourself closer (to Allah)!
It should be noted that Dr. Ahamed also put Allah in parenthesis. This observation verifies the liberties taken by translators, over the past three decades, to make the Qur’an theologically and politically correct for worshippers of Islam. However, this change by Dr. Ahamed is commendable for he realized the error of the original sura in that “us” does not refer to Allah but a party of men that act on His behalf.
Does this sura beckon people to follow God or a party of men, herein referred to as the We Party? There is no reason to be drawn to the unidentified entity Us but only to God. To convince the reader that Us is an entity other than Allah, we will examine several suras that conclusively reveal that a party of religious leaders, the We Party, authorize the killing of human beings who will not convert to Islam or are disbelievers.
The Qur’an contains warnings, chastisements, admonitions and threats of punishment for disbelievers. Instead of building upon and fulfilling the Holy Scriptures of the Torah and Gospels, the Qur’an takes issue with the Jews and Christians as unworthy worshippers and even goes as far as to abrogate or cause to be forgotten the previous commandments of God. The Qur’an sura stated below by Muhammad Zafrulla Khan is compared with the Qur’an’s 2006 translation provided by Dr. Syed Vickar Ahamed.
Sura 2:106-108. Whatever previous commandment We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We reveal in this Qur’an one better or the like thereof: Knowest thou not that Allah has full power to do all that He wills?
Note below that the translation by Dr. Syed Vickar Ahamed does not use the word abrogate and clarifies, “Whatever previous commandment” to “None of Our revelations,” which serves to limit God’s commands to only those revelations received by Muhammad.
The revised translation by Dr. Syed Vickar Ahamed:
Sura 2:106-108. None of Our revelations do We change or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar; Do you not know that Allah has power over all things?
Both sura statements belittles God’s all-knowing capability by challenging His previous commandments as being candidates to be abrogated, forgotten, or substituted for something better. This is an affront to God’s wisdom and infallibility as revealed to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets of God. If God’s commands are subject to being abrogated, forgotten, or changed, then He has failed in His wisdom to direct humanity on its moral and righteous path. Both suras identify the We Party that arrogantly believes that they have the authority to speak for God. Whenever God delivers his revelations in other Scriptures, they have always been prefaced by “The Lord has commanded” or a direct statement as, “Thou shalt” without the use of We, Our or Us entities - nebulous substitutes for the One God in plural form.
The above modifications by Dr. Ahamed are just another instance of the Qur’an being altered, as with the “us” change to Allah in Sura 96 above. It will become more apparent in this article that the Qur’an needs to be revised to keep pace with the higher level of education people can attain today. There may be an underlying and insidious reason for the use of “we, our and us.” By using these plural pronouns, initiates of Islam can easily associate themselves with Allah and carry out the warnings, punishments, chastisements, and the killing of nonbelieving infidels.
The following sura presents a defense for fighting and killing people who incite disorder by denying Allah or profaning the sanctity of the Sacred mosque.
Sura 2:217-219. Fighting is ordained for you, while it is repugnant to you. It may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you, and it may also be that you prefer a thing and it may be the worse for you. Allah knows all and you know not. They enquire from thee about fighting in the sacred month, Say to them: Fighting in it is a great evil; but to hinder people from the way of Allah and to deny Him and to profane the sanctity of the Sacred Mosque, and to turn out its people therefrom is a much greater evil in the sight of Allah; and disorder is a worse evil than killing.
Note that the above sura does not indicate who is ordaining the fighting and killing of those who deny Allah or profane the sanctity of the Sacred Mosque. This sura violates the first command given by God to Noah, which was no man is to kill another unless the offender shed blood of another for in the image of God made He man. It is provided below:
Genesis 9:6. Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He man.
God makes it clear that the sanctity of his creation, human beings, is to have utmost reverence for He made man in His own image. Killing another human being is an abomination that God does not ordain or sanction. God would be inconsistent by allowing killing in His name. It can only be the We Party, not God, who is responsible for abrogating God’s command, Thou shalt not kill. It appears in Exodus 20:13 and Deuteronomy 5:17 of the Holy Bible.
Who states disorder is worse than killing? The We Party or God? In Sura 7:5-7, the We Party reveal themselves as responsible for the destruction of many towns in the name of Allah who is Most Gracious and Ever Merciful - a contradiction of a loving God.
Sura 7:5-7. Little is it that you heed. How many a town have We destroyed! Our punishment came upon their dwellers by night or while they slept at noon. When Our punishment came upon them all they could utter was: We are indeed wrongdoers.
This and the following sura emphasize the killing of disbelievers, people who did not spill blood but simply believed in their own god. Note the planned strategy of killing innocent people while they are asleep at night or in the forenoon while at play. Also note below that the We Party attributes this atrocity to the “design of Allah.”
Sura 7:97-100. We afflicted them suddenly with chastisement, while they perceived not the cause thereof. If the people of those towns had believed and been righteous, We would surely have bestowed blessings upon them from heaven and earth, but they rejected the Prophets, so We seized them because of that which they did. Do the people of these towns now feel secure against the coming of Our punishment upon them by night while they are asleep? Or, do they feel secure against the coming of Our punishment upon them in the forenoon while they are at play? Do they feel secure against the design of Allah? None feels secure against the design of Allah, except those that are losers.
The above suras violate one of the Ten Commandments given to Moses, “Thou shalt not kill.” Under no circumstances should a Book of God convey the killing of our sisters and brothers in the name of or by the design of God. The excuses given in the above sura to rationalize such killing presents a ruthlessness and disregard for God’s creations. It is another example of the We Party speaking for God; this cannot be God speaking because God cannot be inconsistent with His commands. If God is found to be inconsistent, He can no longer be a God of truth that guides the morality of mankind.
A common exhortation by many religions is that people of the faith avoid associating with people who do not follow or believe their religion is the true religion. In Sura 3:119, the commandment is given by a party of men, without a direct command from Allah, not to take outsiders as your intimate friends. This sura warns Muslims that they will be subjected to injury, trouble, hatred, and hostile. The following sura issues a plea to Muslims to avoid associating with people who do not believe in the Islamic faith.
Sura 3:119. O ye who believe, do not take outsiders as your intimate friends, they will not fail to cause you injury. They love to see you in trouble. Their hatred has been expressed in words, and that which they design is even more virulent. We have made our commandments clear to you, if you will understand.
Here again, there is no direct command from Allah but an admonition by a party of men that speaks for God with the intent to cause suspicion and animosity toward non-Muslims. This is a way to insulate Muslims from receiving new ideas that will challenge the will of the We Party. The objective of fanatic religious leaders is to sanitize any information that will empower their people to think for themselves. This is an agenda practiced by the Taliban, who tailor education of their children by advocating only fundamentalist Islamic views. The figure below illustrates an effect that will eventually result in violence by promoting suspicion and hate of people who have beliefs other than Islam.
A healthy, sound and uplifting religion imbues their religious leaders with confidence to expose their dogma and invite challenges by views of other religions. By promoting suspicion of different ideas and beliefs of other people causes the mind to gradually regard other people with animosity due to the lack of communication and freedom of expression. It is only those religions that are
threatened by the dogma of another religion that resentment, anger, and hostility materialize into acts of terror and violence. An inability to defend their Islamic dogma causes imams, caliphs and mullahs to shut down religious debate and even kill any Muslim that has decided to give up their faith for another religion. Such acts of vengeance on an apostate by religious leaders only verify there are serious weaknesses in the dogma of the Qur’an.
The Qur’an is the only Holy Scripture that commands believers to resort to suicide and take the lives of those who do not believe in their God. In Sura 4:67-69, the We Party takes it upon themselves to command their people to kill themselves and others for the cause of Allah. It is clear that a party of religious leaders wrote this sura to strive for the cause of Allah. Is this a command by Allah to kill people who do not worship Him or is His greatest command to have people from all nations love one another? There is a contradiction between God’s command to love one another and the following sura.
Sura 4:67-69. If we had commanded them: Kill yourselves in striving for the cause of Allah or go forth from your homes for the same purpose: they would not have done it except a few of them; yet if they had done what they are exhorted to do, it surely have been the better for them and conducive to greater firmness and strength. We would then bestow upon them a great reward from ourself, and we would surely guide them along the straight path.
Once again a party of religious leaders acts without the authority of Allah and sanctions the killing of human beings in his name. They even provide an inducement by bestowing a great reward for those who kill themselves in order to kill others. The Qur’an therefore condones suicide bombings that are advocated by a religious party of fanatical men. These men truly believe they represent Allah’s cause and will go to extremes to convert disbelievers even if it involves disobeying God’s command - thou shalt not kill. It is unfortunate that the message to love and support brothers and sisters of any nation is missing in this Holy Scripture.
The following sura clearly shows that it could not have been revealed by Allah but written by a party of fanatical men. It incites mistrust and hate of those who are of another religion. In particular, the Jewish and Christian faiths are treated with animosity because, first, these religions were the progenitors of Islam, and secondly, they appear to be in competition with Islam over whose God is the truest or mightiest. The result is an effort by the We Party to malign the god and worshippers of other religions. A few lines from this sura reads:
Sura 63:4-5. When thou seest them (Jews being accused of being disbelievers) their persons please thee; and when they speak thou dost lend ear to what they say. They appear as if they were blocks of wood propped up. They imagine that every warning of chastisement relates to them. They are the enemy, so beware! Ruin seize them! . . . It is the same for them whether thou ask for forgiveness for them or not, Allah will never forgive them. Surely, Allah guides not a rebellious people.
In this sura, the Qur’an speaks for itself in terms that are neither endearing nor respectful of others who are not Muslims or of another religion. The Qur’an portrays a resentful God who will “never forgive them,” a contradiction to the first line of every sura, which states, “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Ever Merciful.”
Sura 63:4-5 presents an inconsistency of a benevolent, forgiving God by stating, “Allah will never forgive them.” When people read the Qur’an in its entirety they will realize that this scripture does not advocate love, peace, and charity for the brothers and sisters of all nations. An Internet search of the Qur’an on the keyword “love” will confirm that nowhere in the Qur’an does it state the command God revealed in the Bible, “thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” This command was expanded by Jesus for all people in the New Testament, “These things I command you, that ye love one another” (John 15:17).
The Qur’an describes Allah’s wrath and anger for disbelievers who do not worship Him or believe in another faith. What is incongruous is that the Merciful, Forgiving, and Compassionate Allah orders His followers to terrorize disbelievers by beheading them. Mass killings of people by Muslim fanatics have occurred in many countries such as people in Southern Thailand who follow Buddhism. The rationale for Muslim mass killings is that they object to the educational system that teaches Buddhist culture because it is not acceptable in Islam. Is this justification for killing human beings advocated in the Qur’an by Allah, Mohammad, or the We Party?
To let the Qur’an provide the answer to this question, the following sura, translated by Muhammad Zafrulla Kahn, is presented unaltered to reveal the revelation to terrorize disbelievers by beheading them.
Sura 8:7-15. At the same time thy Lord commanded the angels: I am with you; so make firm the steps of those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. O ye who believe, strike at their necks and strike at every pore and tip, because they have pitted themselves against Allah and His Messenger. Whosoever sets himself up in opposition to Allah and His Messenger must know that Allah is surely Severe in exacting retribution. That is so; then taste ye His chastisement; for such disbelievers there is torment of the Fire.
Notice that it is the We Party that is speaking for Allah and His Messenger. The command for believers to behead disbelievers (strike at their necks) could not have been issued by Allah. The first command given by God was to Noah whereby He made it clear in Genesis 9:6 that,
Genesis 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made He man.
Would God spill the blood of man who has not shed the blood of another? If so, He would disobey His own command and thereby no longer be a God of honor and devout respect. Human beings have consistently violated God’s command, and even today many religions and governments have failed to inoculate man’s impulse against killing another human being.
The one basic command, “Thou shalt not kill” has been ignored by religious leaders and ruling authorities (RRAs) by using their people to shed the blood of their neighbors. Like Moses, in Exodus 32:27, where he ordered the killing of 3,000 of his own people for worshipping a golden calf, Muhammad’s We Party implicates God as the source to terrorize disbelievers by beheading those who do not worship Him. Was it Muhammad, the We Party, or Allah that ordered this most grievous and atrocious act of murder? The preceding suras and the following sura reveal that it can only be a party of men that speak for Allah and direct abominations by using Allah as the commander.
The ruthlessness of fanatical Islamic terrorists continues in many countries today. It is the Qur’an itself that is used as a medium of indoctrination to motivate Muslims to kill in the name of Allah. Below, this conclusion is clearly found to be true as the Qur’an reveals it is a religious leader of high rank that tells his army of men to draw on the wrath of Allah to kill disbelievers or hell shall be their abode.
Sura 8:16-19. O ye who believe, when you encounter an hostile force of the disbelievers, turn not your backs on them. Whoso turns his back on them on such an occasion, unless maneuvering for battle or turning to join another company, shall draw upon himself the wrath of Allah and hell shall be his abode. An evil resort it is.
Thus on the day of Badr it was not you who slew them, but it was Allah who killed them; and it was not thou who didst throw gravel at their faces, but it was Allah Who threw it, that He might confer a great favour upon the believers. Surely, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. That is so; and Allah will surely undermine the design of the disbelievers.
It becomes convincingly clear that the above sura was written by a commander as one reads of the strategy not to turn and run when encountering a hostile force unless it is necessary to maneuver for battle by turning and joining another company. But notice in the second paragraph that the commander uses his leadership to strengthen the resolve of his troops by stating “it was not you who slew them, but it was Allah who killed them.” Clearly, these are not the words of Allah but a commander or a powerful religious leader.
The commander’s technique of using Allah as sanctioning atrocities has been a successful form of brainwashing or leadership to convince his fighters that the killings were not through their own volition but by Allah who supports and directs their cause. This mind trick is another way of convincing people that they are not responsible for their misdeeds but some outside force, which they attribute to God. But this thinking reminds us of the infantile answer made popular by one of our greatest comedians, Flip Wilson, with, “The devil made me do that.”
To rationalize the killing of innocent people, the religious leader of the We Party tells his fighters that “it was not thou who didst throw gravel at their faces, but it was Allah Who threw it,” and, “that He might confer a great favor on the believers.” This mind trick by religious leaders allows them to make their followers obey their will by placing the act of murder on Allah. But think about it, would God kill His own creations for not worshipping Him? Is the all-forgiving and merciful God unpredictable by rescinding His command “Thou shalt not kill (Exodus 20:13)?”
It becomes apparent that a party of religious leaders are actively using the Qur’an to force the belief in Allah for the unification of Muslims and create an Theocratic Islamic Empire.
Are imams, caliphs and mullahs around the world actively raising their voices to prohibit fanatic parties of men from shedding the blood of disbelievers? Or, are they mesmerized and entrenched in the dogma of the Qur’an whereby they are incapable of love, compassion, and forgiveness of those who follow another faith?
We must all pause and acknowledge that God has introduced Himself to people of many cultures and nations. His only desire is that human beings love one another—this was His last command to mankind, which in all its simplicity is the Word of God.
It is clear that although Judaic and Christian leaders of today recognize the folly of not implementing God’s last command given by Jesus in the Gospel of John, they have stopped killing and terrorizing nonbelievers in the name of God. Will Islamic religious leaders loudly proclaim today and tomorrow that there will be a halt to violence and terror and strongly impose the Word of God? It is hoped that tolerance, compassion, understanding, truthfulness, and love for our brothers and sisters will be acknowledged by Islamic religious leaders.
For Islamic leaders to continue on their present path of destruction by indoctrinating naïve, unsuspecting, and loving Muslims to kill in the name of God will only lead to more disorder, terror, killing of human lives, and possibly a long term pollution of our earth caused by a war that unleashes nuclear bombs. Intelligent, compassionate, and perceptive Islamic religious leaders are the only ones to stop the insanity of terror and murder. Can they reach out to the religious leaders of the Judaic and Christian religions and together unify their beliefs and teach the Word of God?
Such a challenge takes courage, intellect, and loving hearts of Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religious leaders. The question remains, are there religious leaders, representatives of God that will loudly proclaim they insist on unifying their belief in God and teach His greatest command, love one another, our brothers and sisters around the world?
There are many recommendations provided in the last chapter of Allah, We, Our and Us for religious leaders that may make our world a happier and safer place. Some conclusions you may wish to refute or comment on are:
The Qur’an is the source of discontent in many countries around the world.
Allah is referred to as We, Our and Us because He is represented by a party of religious men.
Islamic religious leaders actively use the Qur’an to have Islam prevail over all other religions and ultimately create a Theocratic Islamic Empire.
The Word of God is love one another. It was given as a command three times in the Gospel of John. The Word of God is not the entire Bible or Qur’an.
Followers of the Judaic, Christian and Islamic religions must actively force their religious leaders to unify their beliefs and teach the Word of God.
In truth, religious leaders are prone to remain passive and committed to their inculcated dogma. Therefore, I believe it will be necessary for people around the world to actively pressure Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religious leaders to unify their beliefs and teach the Word of God. As a practical solution to avoid WW III, only they can save this earth from destruction and direct humanity to the next phase of spiritual development.
Review of the religious beliefs of Muslims and their dedicated efforts in the worship of the one God Allah reveals that their lives are totally committed to the Qur’an, which spawned the development of the Sunni-Shia Hadiths. It is the compilation of hadiths that initiated the development of the Sunnah and Sharia law. Though there are differences in the Sunnah between the Sunni and Shia Muslims, it is Sharia law that is used to control an Islamic theocratic government throughout the many countries conquered by force.
Sharia law provides the instruments of enforcement by religious leaders to fulfill the purpose of the Qur’an. As stated by Muhammad Zafrulla Kahn, “The purpose of the Qur’an is to furnish guidance to mankind so that they may be led along the path that would bring them to their Maker in a state of complete submission to Him, thus fulfilling the purpose of their own creation.” 14 It is in the following sura that the Qur’an’s purpose is defined.
Sura 14:2, 3 This is a Book that We have revealed to thee that thou mayest bring mankind out of every kind of darkness into the light, by the command of their Lord, to the path of the Mighty, the Praiseworthy Allah, to whom belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth.
Upon reading the sura passages provided in section 4.0, concern about the expansion of Islam into many countries is justified. Some significant questions that may reveal the Qur’an is the source of discontent in many countries are:
Are imams, caliphs, and mullahs actively using the Qur’an to force the belief in Allah with the objective to create an Islamic World Empire?
Are imams, caliphs and mullahs actively raising their voices to prohibit fanatic parties of men from shedding the blood of disbelievers?
Based on the history and rapid expansion of Islam into many countries around the world, the answer becomes obvious that religious Islamic leaders use the Qur’an to achieve the objective to establish a Theocratic Islamic Empire. Presentation of the suras in section 4.0 are but a small subset, of many more, that conclusively give strong reason to believe that the Qur’an is the source for advocating bigotry, hatred, violence, and the killing of innocent people. Islamic religious leaders are responsible for implementing the Qur’an using Sharia law and are therefore accountable for the discontent and dissatisfaction they have caused in many countries. To substantiate the conclusion that the Qur’an is the source of aggression by Muslims and not economic, political, or educational factors, the following observations based upon facts are provided below.
The reader has only to review the abominable acts committed by fanatical religious factions on a monthly basis to learn that Islamic terror attacks are endemic in all countries indoctrinated with the exhortations in the Qur’an. Allah, We Our and Us provides an Appendix that reveals in just the month of July, 2012, citizens of many countries were shot to death, kidnapped, raped, murdered, bombed by fanatical religious militants, and killed by acts of suicide. These atrocities are not limited to Arabs forcing their ideology on Arabs but Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Hindus and people in many regions where the religion of Islam is taught or being imposed. It is true that regions with a poor economy and discontent without the ability to advance in a free society make them easy targets for Muslim extremists, but the source that promulgates bigotry, hatred, violence and killing of innocent people is the incessant indoctrination of the Qur’an.
It is not possible to combine the political process with a religious ideology because in many cases reason is preempted in favor of long held traditional beliefs. Of greater significance, the continuous indoctrination by a theocratic regime prohibits freedom of expression to think outside the box. It therefore limits the growth of individuality needed to express creativity and innovativeness that is essential for production and prosperity. Such individuality can only be nurtured with education of all the disciplines that increase knowledge about ourselves, our world, and the universe. To allow religious dogma to become a corner stone for decisions instead of reason and knowledge of the facts will only limit the ability to obtain practical solutions necessary to cope with life and its many challenges.
The vision of Allah provided in the Qur’an is that of a God that unleashes His wrath upon those that do not bow down and honor Him as the only true God. The Qur’an goes further in espousing that it defines Islam as the only true religion whereby those with other religious beliefs must be converted or face death, unless they pay a ransom to the Islamic leaders.
It is clear that Islam has spread throughout many countries not by acceptance of a loving, compassionate, and merciful God but by Islamic leaders with a voracious appetite to gain the resources and wealth of other countries and indoctrinate the minds of their captives to further their ambitions. The ultimate objective as defined in the Qur’an is to unify the beliefs of people in the one God Allah and establish Islam as the dominate religion throughout the world.
The spread of Islam continues using military means by Islamic extremists and today murder and forceful expansion is occurring in the upper half of Africa. The motivating document is the Qur’an that instills visions of a unified belief and a reward of a blissful heaven for those who submit and give their lives for Allah. Unfortunately it advocates suspicion of others with another faith, hatred of those that do not believe in Allah, and violence that leads to the killing of nonbelievers of Islam – all implemented by “We, Our and Us” - the We Party that maintain their authority comes from Allah.
The Qur’an is a manual that is used by Islamic religious leaders to indoctrinate dogma that expands their Muslim population, increases the ummah, and extends their Islamic Empire. They use God in the name of Allah to enforce the atrocities written in the Qur’an. No other scripture or religion imposes their beliefs on others through force exclaiming they have the only true religion. And yet, the Qur’an states Islam will, by the grace of Allah, prevail over all other religions. Clearly, the Qur’an is the source of discontent in many countries as fanatical religious leaders seek the objective to establish a religion that will dominate the world.
6.0 Epilogue from Allah, We, Our and Us
Dear reader, Allah, We, Our and Us has been written to inform and educate people around the world about an impending threat by Islamic religious and ruling leaders that have an objective to assimilate the free world under their religion. In the attempt to give a fair assessment of the Islamic religion, this author has objectively revealed the faults of the other two monotheistic religions, Judaism and Christianity. No effort is made to denigrate the three major religions, but to reveal their faults so that religious leaders and followers acknowledge the dire need to revise their scriptures.
Our way of life allows for open discussion of any subject without resorting to animosity and violence. This freedom is to be preserved at all costs in order to attain knowledge about ourselves, our neighbors, and the wonderful ideas that can lead to an increase in our understanding of human nature and revere life on this planet. If we are able to change old, worn-out religious dogma contained in Judaic, Christian and Islamic scripture, we will achieve peace and understanding around the globe and may someday enjoy meeting other intelligent life in the universe.
This book focused on Islam in particular because unlike Judaic and Christian followers there is an overwhelmingly increase of violence by Muslims. Ample evidence has been presented within these chapters to conclusively deduce that it is the Qur’an itself that promotes and sanctions bigotry, hate, and the killing of innocent people in the name of God. This evidence reveals a reality that because the Qur’an is faithfully used by imams, caliphs, and mullahs to indoctrinate there followers, they promote and violently force their “true religion” on all people. Their ultimate objective is to attain a world-wide community, the ummah, a community of Muslims which exists under theocratic Islamic rule.
There is much to be said about civilizations around the world existing with a common code of morality, which is normally prescribed in Holy Scripture. However, when a religion emerges as advocating it is the “only true religion” and forces its morality on other civilizations that have their own set of ethics and code of behavior, then that forceful approach leads only to discontent that leads to division between the various cultures. The results, motivated by suspicion, anger, and eventual hatred, lead to murder, rape, and disrespect for those who have opposing views. The Appendix provides a documented history of the atrocities by extremist Muslims for only a one month period. This snap-shot of history should awaken the hearts and minds of all religious leaders and people around the world to try to resolve the path of destruction promulgated by the Qur’an.
Chapter 4.3.2 provides clear evidence of what went wrong with the economic expansion of many countries under the subjugation of Islamic ideology and rule. In contrast with India, it was found that their Gross National Product (GDP) of about $3 trillion exceeds the total GDP of 57 Muslim countries. Added to this reality is the inability of Islamic religious and ruling authorities (RRAs) to accept and learn from neighboring countries that are highly successful. It takes little intelligence to realize that by emulating the educational and governmental systems of Israel that they can reap the benefits of raising their people to a higher standard of living. However, the mindset of Muslims are constrained by the dogma of the Qur’an that advocates Jews and Christians are infidels and are not to be trusted, which prohibits the ability to form working relationships that can benefit their people.
Many facts and findings contained in this book are documented for Islamic RRAs to become fully cognizant that the Qur’an must be revised to eliminate the bigotry, hate, violence, and killing of people that have different religious beliefs. The Qur’an even advocates suicide of their people to kill people with opposing religious beliefs and provides a reward and incentive of a blissful hereafter. This type of mentality is indoctrinated into all Muslims by religious leaders who devoutly believe in the dogma of the Qur’an. But this same Muslim mentality may be endemic to precipitating a Third World War by unleashing a nuclear bomb that will kill millions of lives and contaminate our planet. This outcome is very real for a people that does not honor life and look forward to be awarded by Allah upon a successful suicide attack. On September 6, 2011, the loss of 3,000 lives and the Boston bombing on April 20, 2013 are successful suicide attempts that are indicative of a sick mentality that is easily indoctrinated in young unsuspecting minds and retained well into adulthood.
The problem has been identified in this book and the solution is for the RRAs of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions to work together to unify their belief in one-universal God. This will be accomplished by eliminating incompatible beliefs and atrocities from their Holy Scriptures. Of greater benefit would be their ability to coalesce their beliefs into one Holy Scripture that clearly presents God’s new and greatest command given to all people by a man of God – love one another.
To ingest the knowledge provided within this book means nothing if the RRAs and followers of the Judaic, Christian and Islamic religions remain silent and fail to loudly proclaim their belief in one God. To fail to meet the challenge of revising their dogma will certainly mean continued discontent between Muslims and those people who desire freedom of expression and ability to attain an education that is not constrained by theological thought. Can perceptive RRAs seriously review the recommendations provided herein and strive to inculcate the attributes of truth, justice, compassion, and love for all people regardless of their religious beliefs? The next phase of spiritual development for all of humanity will be predicated on the ability of religious leaders to “see” the benefits of eliminating divergent views about God and teach the Word of God.
A practical and realistic solution is that “We the People” must pressure leaders of the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions to compromise much of their dogma and implement the belief in one-universal God. These religions all developed from the beliefs of the first formal religion in the world, which began in Egypt over 5,000 years ago. The Egyptian Priesthood slowly improved upon religious beliefs from the worship of many gods to finally the belief in one God, the Creator and Maker of All that Is.
If Jesus, a Man of God, was truthful to proclaim 15 that Amen is,
“the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God”
then representatives of God from the Judaic, Christian, and Islamic religions must be able to comprehend and accept past history to realize they all have a common bond.
Most people, including non-Christians, announce Amen at the end of a prayer, supplication, thanks for a favorable outcome, peace and happiness, and even sing Amen with reverence. He was the first universal God 2,000 years before the birth of Jesus. To not acknowledge the Word of God given by Jesus, a command announce three times – love one another, the possibility of Judaic, Christian and Islamic religious leaders uniting their belief in one-universal God will be lost. The only other option for change is the reality of World War III. But it may be too late for religious and political leaders to realize just how stupid and arrogant they were for not following the Word of God and accepting Amen as the first universal God. Well documented in The Future of God Amen, history reveals Amen is the father of the Judaic, Christian and Islamic Gods.
Education is a wonderful thing but it can only be acquired with an open mind that is willing to pit one’s inculcated upbringing with facts that reveal truths. But will the masses remain fools by ingesting dogma taught by religious organizations and not challenge what is taught? This book presents an honest appraisal of Islamic religious beliefs. Beliefs in scripture require change as we learn more about ourselves and our universe. To resist change as knowledge is acquired results in a choice to accept the status quo, whereby mankind ceases to advance spiritually and intellectually.
The ultimate conclusion of this article is that Allah is not “We, Our and Us.” Islamic religious scholars, imams, caliphs, and mullahs have convinced themselves and decree to all Muslims the reverse belief that We, Our and Us is Allah. Section 4.0 of this article clearly reveals that abominable acts are implemented by a party of men identified throughout the Qur’an as We, Our and Us. Academic scholars are appalled that scripture claimed to be given through an angel of God should be so poorly written whereby the one God is identified in plural terms. There may be an alternate reason why it appears uneducated people assembled the Qur’an and believed they were justified in referring to Allah in plural terms.
From a psychological view there is an advantage for Islamic leaders to associate We, Our and Us with their God Allah. The Qur’an becomes an instrument of power to indoctrinate unsuspecting and new initiates because by constantly reading and hearing We, Our and Us they come to believe that they are one with Allah. Hence, the concept of Unity with the Creator forms the psyche of the Muslim mind. The corollary of this all-important concept is the unity of We, Our and Us with Allah the creator, above all the unity of mankind with God. As stated by Dr. Abbas Mirakhor, “Being a Muslim means surrendering to the Creator. The core practicality of this concept is living a life in unity with others and behaving in a way that promotes the integration of mankind. 16
This article resolves the conundrum why We, Our and Us is believed by Islamic religious leaders to represent Allah. Islamic scholars, imams, caliphs, and mullahs are welcomed to challenge the conclusion that Allah is not We, Our and Us but a party of men that believe it is their mission to implement the Qur’an. It is this party of men that are resistant to all criticism against the Qur’an by shutting down debate and resort to killing their opponents because they lack the credibility and truth to defend the Qur’an. Any person with just a high school diploma can easily agree with the conclusive evidence provided in section 4.0 that Allah is represented by a party of fanatical men identified as We, Our and Us.
The conclusive evidence reveals why the Qur’an is the source of discontent in many countries around the globe. Islamic religious leaders are in fact the party of men sanctioned to implement the warnings and punishments in the Qur’an. One decade after his first revelation, in January of 630 CE, Muhammad, with a force of 10,000 men, severely cut the Meccan trade routes and forced Mecca to surrender. Two years later, Muhammad died in 632 CE and it was twenty years after his death that a party of men assembled his revelations to create the Qur’an.
The suras provided in section 4.0 are a set of many other suras that explicitly identify a party of men that represent Allah to enforce punishments described throughout the Qur’an. In just 29 years from the death of Muhammad, in 661CE, through the leadership of a party of men, the Muslims had established an Empire. The first caliph had been concerned only with spreading Islam among the Arabs in Saudi Arabia. Motivated by power and wealth, by 750 CE, Muslim caliphs forced conversion to Islam not only in the Byzantine and Persian empires, but as far west as Spain and all of North Africa, including its east coast down to the island Madagascar, and further east to the northern half of India.
The evidence of section 4.0 clearly indicates Muslim leaders supplemented Muhammad’s suras with suras of their own into the Qur’an. It is a relevant reason why Allah is represented by We, Our and Us. However, imams, caliphs, and mullahs will vehemently deny this conclusion because it reveals that they have made Allah an accomplice to their abominable crimes against humanity. Truth is very hard to accept when it reveals dishonesty has infiltrated a holy document to become a manual to indoctrinate, subjugate, and control the minds of millions of people with the objective to establish an Islamic Theocratic Empire. Are imams, caliphs, and mullahs capable of “seeing” the Truth and immediately rewrite the Qur’an or will shame, embarrassment and arrogance dominate their actions to continue violence and murder well into the future?
Recommendations are provided to assist Islamic efforts to insure the Qur’an reflects the Word of God to love one another. Muslim religious leaders are invited to refer to the recommendations in AMEN and Allah, We, Our and Us.
