Islamic failure series – Episode 29 – disrespect of other religions from the first Quranic verse

If you have ever seen Quran, you might have wondered or noticed that it looks ordered by the size of the Surah (chapter), it looks as if Muhammad had a computerized word processing program to do the chapter sorting, having the largest Surah at the beginning while the smallest Surahs at the end! There are of course some exceptions, but seriously, if you have a copy of Quran, try to browse it and see what I mean. If you don’t have a copy of Quran, then an online version is your best shot. This site contains the whole Quran online if you care to read

One of the exceptions to this size-sorting is the first Surah of Quran, called Al Fatiha. This Surah is really short, indeed it is just few lines, so I am going to quote the whole Surah.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
مَالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ
إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ
اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ
صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ

In the name of Allah , the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
[All] praise is [due] to Allah , Lord of the worlds –
The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful,
Sovereign of the Day of Recompense.
It is You we worship and You we ask for help.
Guide us to the straight path –
The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.

You might say where is the catch here? Well, every single Muslim knows the meaning of those words. Here we go:

1. those upon whom You have bestowed favor are the Muslims

2. those who have evoked [Your] anger are the Jews

3. And those who are astray are the Christians

So just at the first page in Quran, in the seventh verse of the first Surah, Quran starts the hate messages by calling Jews people who made God angry and Christians people who went astray

So what do you expect from such religion, if just at the first page of it’s doctrine starts mocking and name calling the other religions? And they call it “The religion of peace”!

The video lasts less than two minutes and I urge you to see it.


About Mike

Hello, I am an atheist because of reason and personal experience. I am a father of THREE lovely living kids and two dead embryos, married to a lovely Christian Catholic devoted woman. Yes, black and white can coexist as long as there is respect and love, which is something abstracted from any belief or religion. I do not claim absolute truth and not 100% sure that a God does not exist somewhere out there. The scientific method is what I use to connect to reality. If there is something I don't understand, then it is because i don't understand, not because god exists. In case you haven't noticed, I am a native Arab, and English is my third language (yes there is second language). I like reading the Bible and the Quran and the critics of both of them. I also love watching documentaries especially astronomy, cosmology, Quantum Physics, and new discoveries in science in general, and Physics in particular.
