Hello folks, and welcome to the Another Islamic and Quranic failure series I am going to start.
Al Aqsa mosque is mentioned in the Quran, in Surah called Al Isra’ which is Surah number 17, in verse 1 http://quran.com/17/1 where is says:
سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي أَسْرَىٰ بِعَبْدِهِ لَيْلًا مِّنَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ إِلَى الْمَسْجِدِ الْأَقْصَى الَّذِي بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ لِنُرِيَهُ مِنْ آيَاتِنَا ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ
Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al- Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing
So basically, it says that Allah took Muhammad from Mecca to Al Aqsa on a night journey to show Muhammad the miracles and powers of Allah. What most probably you don’t know about, is that Archangel Gabriel washed Muhammad’s heart while he was sleeping to purify it and prepare him to meet Allah and other prophets! I don’t want to argue about this nonsense, I will leave it for you to comment on as an extra exercise, I just wanted to say that Muhammad had a heart surgery and on the same night he was taken for a journey, and nobody even noticed this? :)
What you also might not know is that Muslim scholars believe that Muhammad was taken to Al Aqsa on a Buraq (a winged donkey), all of this, in one night, without any single witness. I will also leave this nonsense for you to comment about, but I can’t resist not saying that this flying donkey must have had a jet engine it its bottom to travel that fast and that far!
So, Allah did a miracle and took Muhammad to visit Al Aqsa mosque right? First of all, Muslims believe that Al Aqsa mosque is in Jerusalem. The literal translation of Al Aqsa is the farthest one, hence al masjij al Aqsa means the farthest mosque. So this mosque was known to be the farthest known mosque when Muhammad was still preaching his nonsense. So far so good just saying, as Quran has already failed with all of this nonsense, but please allow me to show you the real failure
From this nonsense verses, come many questions:
- First: How do you know that Al Aqsa mosque is in Jerusalem, or Al Quds as known in Arabic, if Jerusalem was never ever mentioned in Quran, not even once, neither by Jerusalem nor my Al Quds?
- Second: The mosque was originally a small prayer house built by the Rashidun caliph Umar, but was rebuilt and expanded by the Umayyad caliph Abd al-Malik and finished by his son al-Walid in 705 CE Reference:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Aqsa_Mosque That is to say: This mosque was built AFTER Muhammad died, when the successor (Caliph) called Omar Bin Al Khattab built it?
Clearly Allah and Quran are both a total failure, if Allah took Muhammad to a place that wasn’t even built yet!
