We have already examined the 96th surah, so let's skip ahead to the 97th. Qur'an 97:1 "We have revealed it in the Night of Predestination." The Islamic conundrum: if we are predestined, then there is no reason for guidance. If there is no need for guidance, there is no reason for a prophet. If there is no reason for a prophet, there is no value to a religious scam. No scam, no profit. No profit, no Muhammad. No Muhammad, no Allah. No Allah, no terrorists. If only....
I'm not the first to be troubled by Islam's foolhardy allegiance to predestination. Bukhari:V6B60N473 "While we were in a funeral procession, Allah's Apostle said, 'Every created soul has his place written for him either in Paradise or in Hell. They have a happy or miserable fate predestined for them.' A man said, 'Apostle! Shall we depend upon what is written and give up doing deeds? For whoever is destined to be fortunate, will join the fortunate and whoever is destined to be miserable will go to Hell.'"
Qur'an 97:2 "And what will make you comprehend the grand night? The grand night is better than a thousand months. Therein come down the angels and the Ruh (Spirit) by the Lord's permission, on every errand." Muhammad and his Lord are singing their praises. The night of a thousand months is the celebration of that dark moment in the cave where devil and prophet became one. It's the night we learned we were blood clots; the night an illiterate man was asked to read. Ah, but it was also the night we were told that truth existed somewhere in a book, in the Bible perhaps, because God had taught men the use of the pen so that they might learn that which they did not know.
Qur'an 97:5 "There is peace until the dawning of the day!" See, Islam is a peaceful religion - till morning anyway. Then all hell breaks loose just as it did in New York City at 8:45 A.M. E.D.T, September 11th 2001. It was Islam's most revealing hour. It is why we must expose a doctrine capable of driving men to such madness.
