How can one present the case that the Muslim holy book was revealed not in Mecca/Medina but rather it was revealed in Israel near Sodom and Gomorrah. I have come to this conclusion not based on wishful thinking rather the evidence is found in the Koran.
Lets read Surah Saffat (37) Ayat 137-8
- Sahih International: And indeed, you pass by them in the morning – And at night. Then will you not use reason?
- Pickthall: And lo! ye verily pass by (the ruin of) them in the morning – And at night-time; have ye then no sense?
- Yusuf Ali: Verily, ye pass by their (sites), by day – And by night: will ye not understand?
- Shakir: And most surely you pass by them in the morning, – And at night; do you not then understand?
- Muhammad Sarwar: You pass by (their ruined town) in the morning and at night. – Will you then not understand?
- Mohsin Khan: Verily, you pass by them in the morning. – And at night; will you not then reflect?
- Arberry: and you pass by them in the morning – and in the night; will you not understand?
The location that this verse is talking about is Sodom and Gomorrah because the preceding verses were talking about how Allah had destroyed the people of Lot.
I was made aware of this because of Ibn Warraq and Tom Holland who have written about Islam’s origins in gerat depth. Do read their work along with watching some of their videos on youtube.
Aisha was married at the age of 6 and the marriage was consummated when she was 9.

With such a varying degree of translation one has to wonder why do the Islamist claim that their holy book is easy to understand (2:185, 16:89, 19:97 and 18:1-3). If this does not constitute evidence that the Koran is a book that is as much a book from God/Allah as it is the translators and commentators.
Narrated Muhammad bin Al-Muntathir:
on the authority of his father that he had asked ‘Aisha (about the Hadith of Ibn ‘Umar). She said, “May Allah be Merciful to Abu ‘Abdur-Rahman. I used to put scent on Allah’s Apostle and he used to go round his wives, and in the morning he assumed the Ihram, and the fragrance of scent was still coming out from his body.” [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 5, Hadith 267]
Anas bin Malik said, “The Prophet used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number.” I asked Anas, “Had the Prophet the strength for it?” Anas replied, “We used to say that the Prophet was given the strength of thirty (men).” And Sa’id said on the authority of Qatada that Anas had told him about nine wives only (not eleven). [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 5, Hadith 268]
…during his fatal ailment, Allah’s Apostle, used to ask his wives, “Where shall I stay tomorrow? Where shall I stay tomorrow?” He was looking forward to Aisha’s turn. So all his wives allowed him to stay where he wished, and he stayed at ‘Aisha’s house till he died there. He died on the day of my usual turn (of having sex) at my house. Allah took him unto him while his head was between my chest and my neck and his saliva was mixed with my SALIVA. [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Hadith 144]
As soon as the pain subsided, he got up and visited with his wives just as he had always done. [Life of Muhammad by Muhammad Husayn Haykal, Chapter The Prophet’s Sickness and Death]
No matter how much we sugar coat the truth, the basic fact of the matter is that Muhammad is no Prophet, at best he was delusional which is definetly a no-no for a prophet. There is so much that can be written on Muhammad but I guess this is enough.
U3.8 (N:) As for Allah’s creating acts, we believe that the real doer or everything is Allah. He is the one who burns, not the fire or the person who lighted the fire; He is the one who cuts, not the knife or the person holding the knife; He is the one who drowns a man, not the water or the person who threw him in, and so forth. Here, people always raise the question that if Allah Most High is the real doer, why are people held responsible? The answer is that Allah Most High does not hold people responsible for creating the act, but rather for choosing the act. One proof of this is that a person who cannot choose is not held responsible, such as someone asleep, insane, a child, forced, unremembering, or someone who makes an honest mistake. The legal responsibility of such people is lifted because they lack full voluntary choice. Another proof is that Nimrod sinned for choosing to burn Ibrahim (upon whom be peace) even though Ibrahim did not burn (koran 21:69); and that Ibrahim (Upon whom be peace) became the Friend of the All-merciful for choosing to sacrifice his son out of obedience to Allah,even though his knife did not cut and his son was not sacrificed (Koran 37:105), all of this showing that the servant is held responsible for his choice, which scholars of the divine unity (tawhid) term the servant’s acquisition (kasb).
As for Allah’s eternally preexistent knowledge, we believe that Allah knows everything before, during, and after it is, and knows how it is when it occurs. But does the servant have acess to this knowledge? Not at all. So the servant chooses to do acts on the basis of a desire within himself, not because he knows Allah’s knowledge, and he is held responsible for his choice even though it corresponds with Allah’s eternally preexistent knowledge.
It is clear from the above that belief in destiny means that Muslims believe Allah has destined and ordained matters in past eternity, and that nothing in existence lies outside of His eternal will, and He is the Creator of everything, while the servant is only held responsible for his own choice (Mudhakkirai fi al-tawhid (y113), 41-12). [Relliance of the Traveller, U3.8, pg613-4]
First humans are only tools in the hand of Allah ie when we light a fire it is Allah who has lighted it and burned the wood. Second everything is predestined which reinforces the first point.
This is the kind of belief that destroys a nation for eternity. I can criticize Islam as much as I can but Muslim scholars are the biggest liability to Islam.
This is just a short version based on collective works of all the other people.
Astronomy – The fact that Koran omits the movement of the earth rather talks about the sun and the moon is clear evidence that Koran was a man made book.
Biology – Adam and Eve rather than evolution is a clear cut example that the Koran is false.
Geology – Mountains do not prevent earthquake something the Koran is full of.
Zoology – Horses, Mules and asses were created by Allah to ride not mentioning how the humans breeded them from the wild.
There are plenty of crazy stuff but Jonah’s story is a clear example of all claim and no evidence.
These are my top reason as to why Islam and Koran are false and that it was a man made book.
Narrated Abu Salama:
‘Aisha’s brother and I went to ‘Aisha and he asked her about the bath of the Prophet. She brought a pot containing about a Sa’ of water and took a bath and poured it over her head and at what time there was a screen between her and us. [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 5, Hadith 251]
Abu Salama b. ‘Abd al-Rahman reported: I along with the foster brother of ‘A’isha went to her and he asked about the bath of the Apostle (may peace be upon him) because of sexual intercourse. She called for a vessel equal to a Sa’ and she took a bath and there was a curtain between us and her. She poured water on her head thrice and he (Abu Salama) said: The wives of the Apostle (may peace be upon him) collectedhair on their heads and these lopped up to ears (and did rot go beyond that). [Sahih Muslim, Book 3, Hadith 626]
It was narrated from Abu Bakr bin Hafs: “I heard Abu Salamah say: ‘I entered upon Aishah and her foster-brother was with her. He asked her about the Ghusl of the Prophet. She called for a vessel which was a Sa’ of water, then she concealed herself and performed Ghusl and poured water over her head three times.”‘ (Sahih) [Sunan anNasai, Volume 1, Book 1, Chapter 144, Hadith 228]
So Aisha the wife of Muhammad used to provide a drop in strip-tease for those who came to her home and I don’t know how much satisfaction she gave to the customers, sorry, I mean the student of Islam.
