The 66th surah was also revealed around this time. It's called "Prohibition." Incredibly, it too was focused on Muhammad's sexual indulgences. The only thing it "prohibited" was criticism of the prophet's decadent lifestyle. Qur'an 66:1 "O Prophet! Why forbid yourself that which Allah has made lawful to you? You seek to please your consorts. And Allah is Forgiving, Most Kind. Allah has already sanctioned for you the dissolution of your vows." Here's the rub. Earlier, Muhammad said that his god approved a maximum of four wives, inclusive of sex slaves. But he woke up one morning and had at least six times that number. He needed to prune his harem or get his god to amend the Qur'an - to cut his favorite prophet a deal. He chose the latter. In doing so, he made a mockery of his scripture. But not to worry; he banned mocking in the previous surah.
The passage contained a fatal line for a prophet: "Allah has sanctioned the dissolution of your vows." A "sanction" is permission or approval. It authorizes or ratifies something. In this context "dissolution" means to abrogate, dissolve, or break. A "vow" is a solemn promise, a pledge or an earnest declaration. Muhammad's principal vows were that he was the Messenger of God, that the Qur'an was revealed by Allah, and that following his example would lead to paradise. If you are a Muslim and are reliant on these promises, be forewarned: "Allah has sanctioned the dissolution of vows."
Qur'an 66:3 "When the Prophet disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his consorts, she then divulged it, and Allah made it known to him. He confirmed part and repudiated part. When he told her, she said, 'Who told you this.' He said, 'He Who knows and is well-acquainted.'" You've got to give Muhammad credit for one thing - it takes guts to pass off pillow talk for scripture. But it begs the question: what on earth did Muhammad divulge to one of his sex slaves that was so incriminating the rumor had to be squashed by a "divine" ordinance?
Speaking directly to the consorts, the "creator of the universe" gave us a clue as he tried to quell a rift in his aged prophet's harem: Qur'an 66:4 "If you two (women) turn in repentance to him, it would be better. Your hearts have been impaired, for you desired (the ban) . But if you back each other up against (Muhammad), truly Allah is his protector, and Gabriel, and everyone who believes - and furthermore, the angels will back (him) up." With his insecurities showing, "god" issued another veiled threat. But he also answered the preceding riddle. Muhammad had let his guard down, and while frolicking with one of his captives, said something like: "Stop complaining or I'll make up a Qur'an saying Allah and his angels are with me and against you."
Islam's prophet wants us to believe that his "god" got tough on his unruly brothel. He said that if they continued to bellyache, he would change them out for a fresh batch of virgins. Funny thing, though; Muhammad was the only one who heard Allah say any of this. Qur'an 66:5 "Maybe, if he divorces you (all), Allah will give him in exchange consorts better than you, submissive, faithful, obedient, adorers who worship, who travel, and are inclined to fasting - previously married or virgins."
This verse exposes the true nature of the Qur'an. Muhammad was willing to contrive godly revelations to silence his wives and concubines and to add to his collection of experienced women and playful virgins. He even ran a personal ad: "Seeking girls who were submissive, obedient, hungry, willing to travel and worship me." Even the word "consort" is intriguing. Webster defines it as the spouse of a reigning monarch. The prophet had become king.
While all that is bad, it's not what bothers me the most about Muhammad and Islam. What irks me is that this man put a system in place that ultimately coerced three billion people to their doom. Under penalty of death, his pronouncements assured that everyone living in a conquered land would live in economic, intellectual, and religious poverty - that they would lose their freedoms and their souls. As such, I consider Muhammad to be the most destructive and evil man who ever lived.
Some might object and say that there is sexual indulgence in the Bible. And so there is. But it was not condoned by Yahweh. When David and Solomon let their lust get the best of them, God stopped supporting them as he once had. The Israel that had grown great under their leadership became divided, and it was ultimately conquered, with the Jews being led into captivity and then dispersed.
After telling us that he is perverted, Allah says he's demonic as well. He's going to use men's bodies as fagots for hell's fires. This verse is Qur'an 66:6, so Satan might be giving us a clue. For those who may not know, the book of Revelation in the Bible says that the mark of the Beast - the Antichrist - is 666. "O ye who believe! Save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones, over which are angels stern (and) severe as wardens, who flinch not (from executing) the commands they receive from Allah, but do (precisely) what they are commanded." Allah and Satan have an awful lot in common - including their interests and the place they spend their time.
You may be wondering if the Qur'an's other 666 is equally Satanic? Opening the Devil's favorite book to Qur'an 6:66 we find wardens and Allah deceiving men - passing off a lie as truth - Satan's favorite vocation. 6:66 reads: "The people reject this (Book) and call it a lie though it is the truth. Say: 'I am not a warden over you.'" It goes on to warn: "When you see men who meddle with Our Revelations, turn away, withdrawing from them. Satan makes you forget." And that's a serious problem for Islam because... Bukhari:V6B61N550 "The Prophet said, 'It is a bad thing that some of you say, "I have forgotten such-and-such verse of the Qur'an." For indeed, I have been caused to forget it.'"
Chatting with his victims in hell, Allah proclaims: Qur'an 66:7 "O you unbelieving Infidels, make no excuses for yourselves this Day ! You are being paid back for what you did!" Gloating is one of Satan's least admirable qualities.
In the next verse, we have yet another admission. Those who knew Muhammad best best humiliated him for his feeble attempts at scripture and mocked him for the gross discrepancies between his life and that of a real prophet. Qur'an 66:8 "Believers, turn to Allah with repentance: perhaps your Lord may remove your ills, admitting you to Gardens. That Day, He will not permit His Prophet to be humiliated."
Giving hate a divine blessing, the Islamic god shares: Qur'an 66:9 "O Prophet! Strive hard against the unbelieving Infidels and the Hypocrites; be severe against them. Their abode is Hell, an evil resort." If this is tolerant, I'd hate to see intolerant.
To demonstrate his hostility, the Black Stone perverts another Bible story for your reading pleasure: Qur'an 66:10 "Allah cites, as an example to the unbelieving Infidels, the wife of Nuh and the wife of Lut : they were under two of our righteous slaves, but they betrayed their (husbands), acting treacherously toward them, and they profited nothing. They were told: 'Enter the Fire!'" Methinks this verse was really made up to scare Muhammad's wives, but that's just a guess.
Then, mixing a little originality with delusion, the Meccan moon god veers away from the Biblical script as he concludes the surah: Qur'an 66:11 "And Allah cites, as an example to those who believe, the wife of Firon : Behold she said: 'O my Lord! Build for me near You a mansion in the Garden, and save me from Firon and his doings, save me from evil-doing folk.' And Mary the daughter of Imran, who guarded her chastity; and We breathed into (her body) Our Spirit; and she testified to the truth of the words of her Lord and of His Scripture Books. She was an obedient (slave)." The Mary "who guarded her chastity" was the daughter of Heli. Allah would have done well to read the Bible before he tried to elaborate on it.
