Il Corano By Anonymous

    أنا أدعو لحذف المصحف من الموقع،فلا يصح أن يوضع كتاب الله للتقييم مثل بقية الكتب Il Corano The Qur'an = القرآن الكريم, Anonymous

    The Quran is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be the verbatim word of God (Arabic: الله, Allah).

    قرآن مجید دارای یکصد و چهارده سوره �� جمعا 6236آیه است؛ لفظ جلاله الله به یازده شکل در قرآن مجید آمده است: الله = خدا، الفاتحة 1 آیه 1، آلله = آیا خدا، یونس 10 آیه 59، ابالله = آیا به خدا، التوبة 9 آیه 65، لله = برای خدا، خدای را، الفاتحة 1 آیه 2، ولله = و از آن خداست، البقرة 2 آیه 115، فالله = پس خدا، البقرة 2 آیه 113، فلله = پس خدای را است، الانعام 6 آیه 149، بالله = به خدا، خدا به، البقرة 2 آیه 8 ، النساء 4 آیه 6، والله ِ= به خدا سوگند، الانعام 6 آیه 23، تالله ِ = به خدا سوگند، یوسف 12 آیه 73، وتالله = و سوگند به خدا، الانبیاء 21 آیه 57، همچنین در قرآن مجید فقط کلمات و الفاظ یک، ...، تا 11 حرفی وجود دارند؛ فاسقیناکموه الحجر 15 آیه 22 بزرگترین و تنها کلمه ی یازده حرفی در قرآن مجید است، و تنها یازده حرف از حروف: الف، ب، ح، ر، س، ل، م، ن، ه، و، ی، در همه ی یکصد و چهارده سوره ی قرآن مجید وجود دارند

    تاریخ نخستین آموزش و خوانش: یک یا دو سال پیش از سال 1959میلادی؛ و بارها و بارها در طی سالیان کلام الله را خوانده ام؛ متن با اعراب کتاب آسمانی را با ادیتور گرافیکی خویش، که برای نخستین بار در جهان این فراموشکار نوشته بودم، در سال 1981میلادی تایپ کرده ام، و بارها متن مکانیزه را، با نسخه های متفاوت کلام الله، مقابله و گاه متن و گاه نسخه ی چاپ شده را تصحیح کرده ام؛ ...؛

Plus, I'm Jewish, it's not my place to ‘judge’ the Qur'an.
    I found it interesting to see all the things we, Jews and Muslims, have in common. It helped me understood way better what I was reading.
    Once and for all : if you seriously think being Muslim is about hating people, then it means you haven't read the Qur'an or that you're not even trying to understand what being Muslim truly means. Il Corano My Noble Qur'an is Arabic with Meanings translated to Portuguese(Br).

    Amazing interesting and free of misteries.

    Islam goes straight to the point, based on science and logic.

    Before you read on, it is important that you read and understand this:

    THIS REVIEW IS WRITTEN BY AN ATHEIST. I DO NOT SUGAR-COAT NOR DO I WRAP MY OPINIONS IN COTTON TO PROTECT THE DELICATE AND/OR EASILY OFFENDED RELIGIOUS READER.

    IF YOU FOLLOW THE ISLAMIC FAITH AND GET OFFENDED WHEN YOUR HOLY BOOK (AND RELIGION) RECEIVES CRITICISM READ NO FURTHER! YOU WILL NOT LIKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE QURAN. CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED: IF YOU CONTINUE TO READ FURTHER THEN YOU WANT TO BE OFFENDED. STOP HERE. DON'T SAY I DID NOT WARN YOU ABOUT THE CONTENT OF THIS REVIEW.


    Why the above disclaimer?

    I am extremely fed up with all the people who come here and do nothing but whine and complain about my review. All you do is showing us your lack of education, intelligence and respect.

    Your comments clearly shows the world that you have actually read nothing at all: not the review in question, nor have you actually read and understood the content of the Quran, a book you profess to call sacred. All you do is read half a sentence, see the 1-star-rating and then you start complaining, instead of continue reading with an attempt of neutral eyes. God forbid (pun intended) that you even start reading the comments that this review already has gotten before you start jotting down what has been written down before.

    From this moment on users who post comments that show disrespect and the above mentioned ignorance will be instantly blocked. Only people that show respect and a minimum of half a brain will be allowed to discuss. Not happy? Go write your own review instead of whining about my opinion of a book I have read.

    Enlish translation (one of many):
    If you have any doubt concerning those women of yours who have finished with menstruation, then their count is three months; as it is with the ones who are still not menstruating [my emphasis]. With those who are pregnant, their term will be whenever they give birth. God makes His matter easy for anyone who heeds Him.

    To quote Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi - clearly he could not say this any clearer than I:
    [...] Here, one should bear in mind the fact that according to the explanations given in the Quran the question of the waiting period arises in respect of the women with whom marriage may have been consummated, for there is no waiting period in case divorce is pronounced before the consummation of marriage. Therefore, making mention of the waiting-period for the girls who have not yet menstruated [my emphasis], clearly proves that it is not only permissible to give away the girl in marriage at this age but it is also permissible for the husband to consummate marriage with her. Now, obviously no Muslim has the right to forbid a thing which the Quran has held as permissible. [...]

    I will refrain from commenting further and let the above speak for itself and encourage everyone who has read this book to re-read it again and write your own review. Hateful, disrespectful and harassing comments will be flagged, reported, deleted and the user who is posting said comments will get blocked.

    EDIT: 20/02/2013
    For those of you who might still doubt the validity of the claim that Islam condones paedophilia and worships a paedophile, I would like to draw your attention to the second most important book in Islam after the Quran: The Translation of the Meanings of Sahih Al-Bukhari - Arabic-English. In particular I would like to draw your attention to Sahih Bukhari 5.236:
    [...]and then he married 'Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old[...]

    For those who are still in denial and claim that Aisha entered an early puberty - clearly the below passages clearly state that she was NOT:

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151
    Narrated 'Aisha:

    I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah's Apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for 'Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13)

    Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3311
    'A'isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.


    Don't have a copy of Sahih Bukhari at hand? Not to worry, I have links to the remarkable passages here:

    And about the illusion of Islam being a religion of peace? Then I encourage you to watch this enlightening documentary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krvCQb...

    Muhammad 47:4
    فَإِذَا لَقِيتُمُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فَضَرْبَ الرِّقَابِ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا أَثْخَنتُمُوهُمْ فَشُدُّوا الْوَثَاقَ فَإِمَّا مَنًّا بَعْدُ وَإِمَّا فِدَاءً حَتَّىٰ تَضَعَ الْحَرْبُ أَوْزَارَهَا ذَٰلِكَ وَلَوْ يَشَاءُ اللَّهُ لَانتَصَرَ مِنْهُمْ وَلَٰكِن لِّيَبْلُوَ بَعْضَكُم بِبَعْضٍ وَالَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَلَن يُضِلَّ أَعْمَالَهُمْ

    Translation:
    So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by means of others. And those who are killed in the cause of Allah - never will He waste their deeds.

    And again to those of you who wish to censor me and post hateful remarks and comments then please open your eyes and educate yourself instead. If you disagree with what Islam's holy books clearly state then I encourage you (again) to write your own review and see if you can prove the teachings of Islam wrong!

    قل خيرًا أو - ارجوك - اصمت Il Corano Have other people noticed that the Qur'an is listed here as being by Allah, whereas the Bible is by Anonymous? If I were a Christian, I think that would leave me feeling just a little annoyed.
    _________________________________________

    Since I posted this review, the entry has been changed, and the Qur'an is now also listed as being by Anonymous!

    Well, whoever did that is a braver man or woman than I am. I admire your chutzpah. So to speak.
    _________________________________________

    And now it's Allah again!

    My impression is that the Muslims and the Infidels are pretty evenly matched here. Looks like it'll be a close game.
    _________________________________________

    Mere days later, and now we're back to Anonymous!

    I'm particularly impressed by the good sportsmanship both sides are displaying. Who says a religious war can't be carried out in a civilized and courteous manner?
    _________________________________________

    In a surprise move, the author has now been changed yet again to 'ALLAH the creator (As believed in Islam)'. Match that if you can, Infidels!
    _________________________________________

    Anonymous once more, but to be honest it seems rather unimaginative. Come on, Infidels, you can come up with something better than this, can't you? What would Dawkins do?
    _________________________________________

    Back to Allah again. I clicked on His page and was immediately confronted with some interesting options. I could become a fan! (I was surprised to see that Allah didn't have any fans. Evidently I'd been misinformed). I was also asked if He had a blog, and on reading further discovered that
    As a librarian, you can create a blog for this author even if they're not on Goodreads by adding the feed URL (Atom or RSS) of a blog they keep elsewhere. This will make summaries of their blog posts available here.
    Unfortunately, I don't know of any blog kept by Allah, but if I discover one I'll make sure I use this feature.

    Oh, and by the way He doesn't have any upcoming events either. Is this correct, or merely a reflection of the fact that He exists outside of space and time?
    _________________________________________

    Ho hum... Anonymous is back. He/she has written a whole lot more books than Allah, but also lacks fans. Well, that's one thing they have in common...
    _________________________________________

    Flash update: the author has now been changed to God!

    This boldly ecumenical move impresses me. God, I learn from His Homepage, is the author not only of the Quran but also of The Gospels of Jesus (KJV) with Search Every Verse Navigation, Optimized for E-Readers, where He is credited as the author and King James as the translator. He has not written any other books. Well, I've never pretended to understand theology, but I recognize new thinking when I see it. I hope someone more competent than I am is already preparing an exegesis.

    The page ends with the following rather intriguing prayer:
    Is this you? Let us know. If not, help out and invite God to Goodreads.
    _________________________________________

    I'm disappointed to say that we've now got Anonymous again. Whoever did that should be ashamed of themselves. God was inspired, this is just dull.

    What other possible candidates could there be? Muhammad (PBUH)? The Angel Gabriel? Abu Bakr? Muhammad (PBUH), Bakr, Uthman and Hafsa? We need some fresh ideas here.
    _________________________________________

    After several months of inactivity, we have another change, but it was worth waiting for: Allâh (God Almighty).

    Brilliant! Isn't that circumflex just to die for?
    _________________________________________

    The Infidels, with their characteristic rapier wit, have changed the author back to Anonymous. Sorry, but I am not impressed. And don't give me that Goodreads Policy crap. Plenty of holy books are not listed as being by Anonymous, for example The Book of Mormon and The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

    I look forward to seeing the Muslims' next move - I think they have the initiative.
    _________________________________________

    The Muslims score again with ALLAH (all caps), who has also written Study the Noble Qur'an Word-for-Word Volume 2 and Study the Noble Qur'an Word-for-Word Volume 3. Mysteriously, there is no Volume 1. ALLAH has three quotes, of which the first is لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الل (There is no god but ALLAH and Mohammad is his prophet).

    Now that's class. Okay, Infidels, let's see if you can change the author to something that's not yet another Anonymous. I dare you. I double dare you.
    _________________________________________

    Boo! A few days later, and Anonymous is back. Honestly, it's enough to make you want to convert to Islam.
    _________________________________________

    Allah has returned again, but in a confusingly different form! This time, I found He was only the author of the Qur'an and had two fans, Nabila and Tarek. I decided that it was prudent to become a fan as well.

    I checked to see which authors were like Allah, and was startled to see that the list included Alexandre Dumas and Italo Calvino. I'm sure it's greatly to their credit.
    _________________________________________

    That didn't last long. Notgettingenough, whose opinions I greatly respect, felt that it was inappropriate for me to be a fan of Allah. On reconsideration, I agree with her. I have cancelled my brief fanship and hope that both parties will understand it was an honest mistake.
    _________________________________________

    The Infidels only have one idea, and here it is again. Sigh...
    _________________________________________

    The Muslims are back, and score another fine goal with الله. That's Allah in Arabic script for all you people who can't be bothered to check it on Google Translate.

    Contrary to what certain skeptics may say, religious belief appears to give you imagination. Go Islam! !الله أكبر
    _________________________________________

    Without waiting for the Infidels to reply, the Muslims score again with الله جلَّ جلاله. The person responsible has even created a cool avatar for His homepage. Nice work!

    Admit it, Infidels: you have been comprehensively outplayed here. The classiest thing to do would be to have some suitable representative come forward and formally concede. That might at least win you back some respect.
    _________________________________________

    The Infidels refuse to admit defeat, and come back for the ninth time (I counted) with the single move they know how to make. Though, confusingly, the title of the book is now given only in Arabic script.

    If it's an attempt at a compromise solution, I very much doubt that the Muslims will buy it. Watch this space.
    _________________________________________

    I presume that the Infidels' peace overture was scornfully rejected. They have retaliated by changing the title to Roman script only, even removing the apostrophe.

    Cheeky! This flagrantly provocative gesture will surely not go unpunished.
    _________________________________________

    After 40 days of inactivity (significant or what?) the Muslims strike back with another Allah. I suspect that the move is deeper than it looks, since His new homepage contains a long quote in Arabic referring to several passages in the Qur'an. Maybe someone better acquainted with these matters can explain it to the rest of us?
    _________________________________________

    A little more than a day later, it's Anonymous again.

    I think the Infidels have a home side advantage here, which makes me admire the brave and resourceful Muslim hackers all the more. Come on Islam! You can beat those security measures!
    _________________________________________

    Allah has returned, and this time after only 21 days away! It looks like the Muslims have recovered from their unexpected loss of form.

    Now, the question is how long they can keep possession. Both sides are demonstrating extraordinary tenacity in this long-drawn-out conflict! Quite inspiring to all us wishy-washy agnostics sitting on the sidelines...
    _________________________________________

    The pattern from last time repeats: Allah lasts less than a day, and is quickly set back to Anonymous.

    It's no good making excuses any more. The romantic in me wants the exciting, creative Muslims to win, but the facts are more than obvious: however they've managed it, the grimly humorless Infidels have taken their game to a new level. Over the last couple of months, they've been in charge 95% of the time.

    Muslims, you need to figure out what the Infidels are doing and stop them. It's as simple as that.
    _________________________________________

    I was about to despair, but Allah is back! Though I am surprised to see that He still only has two fans, the ever-faithful Nabila and Tarek. Truly, their reward will be great.

    I do wonder what thoughts Amazon have on this vital question. Which way could the different options push sales in the Muslim world? I imagine they have top analysts crunching the numbers as I write.
    _________________________________________

    Incredible but true: the Infidels have finally come up with a new idea! The author of the Qur'an is now given as A.

    Who is A, I hear you ask? I haven't the slightest notion. The one slim lead we're given is that A has also co-authored Jamba Juice Power with Kirk Perron - possibly a minor prophet, but, to be honest, I'm clutching at straws here.

    I don't dare predict what might happen next. Stay tuned.
    _________________________________________

    A lasted mere hours, and now it's Allah again. For people who haven't yet looked at His Homepage, there is some interesting theological information:

    gender: male
    genre: Religion
    influences: Almighty Yahweh, Jesus Christ

    Oh, and He has now acquired a third fan, Esraa.

    MJ claims to have tracked down the hackers. Kyle, Fil and Zain (if you are indeed the people responsible), please take a bow!
    _________________________________________

    An hour after the post above, Abbey and Amritorupa swear that the author was briefly changed to A Nonny Mouse - but it only lasted a few minutes before reverting to Allah.

    I have never seen so much activity. Has a fatwa been issued? Are Amazon hoping to boost sales of the new Q'indle?
    _________________________________________

    And another hour later, it's Anonymous.

    Whatever is going on? Is it the end of the world? I have consulted the Book of Revelation, but all I can find is 22:10:
    And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
    I suppose that may be a warning against blocking changes to authorship attributions on Goodreads, but I'm not at all sure.
    _________________________________________

    Yesterday, I started reading Richard Burton's translation of the Arabian Nights, and this morning I see that Allah has returned! I must quote Burton's wonderful opening lines:
    PRAISE BE TO ALLAH - THE BENEFICENT KING - THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE - LORD OF THE THREE WORLDS - WHO SET UP THE FIRMAMENT WITHOUT PILLARS IN ITS STEAD - AND WHO STRETCHED OUT THE EARTH EVEN AS A BED - AND GRACE, AND PRAYER-BLESSING BE UPON OUR LORD MOHAMMED - LORD OF APOSTOLIC MEN - AND UPON HIS FAMILY AND COMPANION TRAIN -PRAYER AND BLESSINGS ENDURING AND GRACE WHICH UNTO THE DAY OF DOOM SHALL REMAIN - AMEN! - O THOU OF THE THREE WORLDS SOVEREIGN!
    I was a bit puzzled by the bed, but after a couple of chapters realized that it must be a carpet-bed, presumably some kind of Middle Eastern futon. Just in case you were also wondering.
    _________________________________________

    The Muslims are having a good week, and Allah (the most merciful, the most magnificent) is now in correct Arabic script again! If you cut and paste into Google Translate and click on the loudspeaker icon, you can even hear how it's pronounced.
    _________________________________________

    There is no Majesty and there is no Might save in Allah the Glorious, the Great! (I understand from Richard Burton that this is the polite Islamic equivalent of our own Jesus H. Christ!) We're back to Anonymous.

    Come on Infidels, you're boring us all to death. But I just know you can do better. Raise your game and make your fellow-atheists proud of their lack of belief!
    _________________________________________

    Allah has returned to Goodreads, and has yet again reorganized His homepage! The opening at any rate looks familiar:



    But a little further down, I found this:


    I'm sorry, it's more responsibility than I can handle. Someone else will have to take care of it.
    _________________________________________

    And the new author is A... a... a... nonymous. Don't know why, but I just can't stop yawning today. Must have stayed up too late or something.
    _________________________________________

    Looking at the Librarian Edits Page is almost scary. While I was asleep, the author was first changed to كلام الله جمعه عثمان بن عفان by Wafa, and then to Allah الله by Anwaar. All in all, there are 87 pages of edits.

    I hope someone is archiving this priceless cultural document, which surely contains enough material for at least two doctoral dissertations...
    _________________________________________

    An hour later, it's briefly flipped back to Anonymous before changing yet again to 'الله aka Allah, and we're now up to 89 pages of edits.

    I see it's going to be Another Of Those Days. I should have guessed as much when I saw on Yahoo News that a two-headed calf had been born, a rain of frogs had occurred, and Lady Gaga had been photographed wearing a sensible outfit with flat shoes...
    _________________________________________

    It's all I can do to keep up. Since it'll probably change even before I've finished posting, here's a screenshot I saved from the current version of Allah's Homepage:


    _________________________________________

    Back to Anonymous. Though now I don't know who to root for, since it appears that some Infidels have started ironically supporting Allah. I wish theology was less confusing.
    _________________________________________

    Allah has returned once more! I immediately click to His new Homepage, and find a book ad with the title Earth Is In Dire Trouble.

    Just a coincidence, I suppose.
    _________________________________________

    Alhamdulillah! (الح��د لله‎; one of the many useful expressions I have learned from Richard Burton). The Infidels once again change the author to Anonymous, but Islam's ever-vigilant cyberwarriors immediately change it back, even using Allah Almighty to show that they, at least, possess imagination and a sense of fun.

    I apologize to my atheist friends for my obvious partiality, mais c'est plus fort que moi.
    _________________________________________

    (after taking a break from my reporting duties)

    ALLAH (ALL-CAPS) IS BACK! GABRIEL AND MUHAMMAD (PBUH) ARE ALSO CREDITED! TAKE THAT, INFIDELS!
    _________________________________________

    Anonymous returns, but with an interesting new twist: he (He?) is now credited as Speaker. In other words, the Qur'an was dictated, not by Allah, but by someone else.

    I do not pretend to understand these theological subtleties at any but the most superficial level. All the same, I feel I should remind the person who made the change that this seems uncomfortably close to the idea which got Mr. Rushdie into so much trouble a few years ago.
    _________________________________________

    I just stumbled across the Uncyclopedia entry for Anonymous. At risk of repeating myself, it is entirely inappropriate that this person should be credited with the authorship of the Qur'an.

    Il Corano who am I to say my opinion about this Miracle Il Corano what I learned from this book is that Islam is NOT what they say it is in the media and that it is also not what the radicals claim it is. The Qur'an is the perfect companion to our own Holy Bible. Il Corano
