Quran’s clear contradictions and world’s all major religions
[The Quran 5:43] Why do they ask you (O Muhammad) to judge among them, when they have the Torah, containing GOD’s law, and they chose to disregard it? They are not believers.
Surely [5:43] verse without any slight ambiguity endorses Jewish religion once and forever because even during prophet Muhammad time Jewish were required to establish social justice and religious practices based on the Torah and not based on the Quran.
[5:47] The people of the Gospel shall rule in accordance with GOD’s revelations therein. Those who do not rule in accordance with GOD’s revelations are the wicked.
Clearly [5:47] verse without any slight ambiguity endorses Christian religion once and forever because even during prophet Muhammad time Christian people were required to establish social justice and religious practices based on the Gospel and not based on the Quran.
[22:40]… If it were not for GOD’s supporting of some people against others, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and masjids – where the name of GOD is commemorated frequently – would have been destroyed. Absolutely, GOD supports those who support Him. GOD is Powerful, Almighty.
We know churches, synagogues, and masjids but we can also see Hindu and Buddhist monasteries around the globe, therefore [22:40] verse not only endorses Islam, Christianity and Judaism but also Hinduism, Buddhism and similar type of other religions.
This verse clearly says that God initiated all world religions for establishing God-human relationship, human development and inter-racial human benefits and cooperation. Of course, all religions were corrupted by religious, social and political forces for their own agendas and ambitions.
So in the name of religion any form of fighting with anybody in any religion is totally forbidden as per the holy Quran. Even though during Prophet Muhammad time Christian believed Jesus and his mother Mary were their lords beside God this verse clearly approves Christianity, Judaism and other religions too. This verse is profound and it hints clearly the non-violence nature of world’s all true religions.
[5:48] Then we revealed to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming previous scriptures, and superseding them. You shall rule among them in accordance with GOD’s revelations, and do not follow their wishes if they differ from the truth that came to you. For each of you, we have decreed laws and different rites. Had GOD willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To GOD is your final destiny – all of you – then He will inform you of everything you had disputed.
In [5:48] verse “superseding” is wrong translation obviously and even subsequent parts of the verse proves so clearly. Most of the translators do not use this word. God clearly does not supersede other religions by Islamic religion. It was the will of God to create another religion called “Islam” besides other world religions and why God created several religions, nations, tribes etc. are being answered in [49:13].
[49:13] O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant.
No matter what religion you follow, the key in your life is to be righteous. So, first you have to stop all forms of violence in the name of religion. God does not care any particular belief, ritual or tradition, God only cares your righteousness.
Now let us see something else!
[3:19] The only religion approved by GOD is “Islam….”
Therefore [3:19] verse clearly contradicts many other verses (such as 5:43, 5:47, 22:40, 49:13 etc.) of the Quran! No matter how hard you are trying to hide, and trying to give a makeshift logic and reason this is the fact! So let us truly be honest and truthful and admit that there are some verses of the Quran that contradict each other.
Therefore, you should not be a blind believer of the Quran (more correctly to say paper Quran, and not the original Quran preserved in Lauhe Mahafuz). At least you should humbly admit that many things in the Quran you do not understand.
Please do not be a pretender and arrogant one. Humbleness could make you great. God (Allah) gives us logical thinking power to distinguish wrong from right so we must use that God-given power in our daily life. Nothing in this world can be followed blindly, that’s the ultimate truth. Thank you and may God bless you.
