the fourteenth chapter of this book we have discussed
the Mohammedan (Islam) religion. Our criticism against
the Qoran is based directly on the teachings of the Qoran
itself and not on those of any other book. Thought differences
of opinion with regard to the interpretation of certain
words and verses do exist among he Mohammedans - they
being split up into so many sects -, yet all are agreed
as regards the revealed character of the Qoran.
Qoran, which is written in the Arabic language, has
been translated into Urdu by distinguished Mohammedan
scholars. This translation was rendered into bhasha
and transcribed in Devanagari character and was
then corrected by eminent Arabic scholars. Anyone questioning
the accuracy of our translation should first prove the
translation done by those Mohammedan scholars to be
incorrect before sitting down to find faulty with us.
object aims at by this criticism is to contribute to
the elevation of the human race and enable all men to
sift truth from falsehood by giving them some idea of
the teachings of various prevalent religions, as this
will afford them opportunities for friendly discussions
- so useful in helping men to point out their defects
and to appreciate their merits.
is not our purpose to falsely condemn this or any other
religion. On the contrary what we aim at is that whatever
is true should be recognized as such and whatever is
false should be condemned as such, so that no one should
be in a position to palm off untruth for truth or hinder
the progress of truth. One is, of course, free to accept
truth or for the matter of that even refuse to do so
after it has been published; compulsion being impossible
in such matters. Good men will, as a rule, after they
have realized their merits and demerits, imbibe good
reject bad ones and eradicate bigotry and prejudice
and wherever found. Who does not know something of the
prodigious amount of evil that has been wrought by bigotry?
The truth is that it is unworthy of a human being to
injure others and throw away his own chance of happiness
in this uncertain and transient life.
case the good reader comes across, in this criticism,
anything contrary to facts, it is hoped he will point
it out and we shall make the suggested changes if called
for, since this criticism is designed to diminish bigotry,
obstinacy, jealously, malice, hatred, and (love of )
useless wrangling and not to promote them.
is our first and foremost duty to avoid injuring others
and to further the well-being of each other. We lay
this criticism on the Mohammedan religion before all
lovers of truth in the hope that they, after having
gone carefully through it, accept what appeals to their
reason and common sense and discard what is repugnant
WORD TO THE SEEKER OF TRUTH
Back to contents
Now we shall examine (the doctrines of) the Mohammedan
"(I begin this book) In the name of God, the Compassionate,
the Merciful." (1*:1.)
~ The Mohammedans claim that this Q’uran is the Word
of God, but it appears from the above passage that the
author of this book was some person other than God,
since had it been God himself, He would not have said:
"(I begin this book) in the name of God etc." He would
have, instead, said: "I write this book for the instruction
of mankind." If it be said that by beginning His book
in this fashion He means to teach men as to what they
should say when about to do a thing, it cannot be true,
since some men will do even sinful deeds in the name
of God and thereby bring disgrace on Him.
(the Mohammedan) God be merciful, why has He sanctioned
that men should inflict great suffering on other creatures
by killing them for their food? Are not these animals
innocent? Are they not His creatures? He should have
also advised men to begin only good deeds in His name
and not evil ones. Thus the passage (under discussion)
is quite ambiguous. Should even such sinful acts, as
theft, adultery, untruthfulness in speech, begun in
God's name? Very likely it is on account of this ambiguity
that the (Mohammedan) butchers etc., mutter "In the
name of God, the compassionate, the most Merciful as
the moment of cutting the throats of cows and other
is clear then that the Mohammedans do begin even evil
deeds in the name of God. The Mohammedan God can never
be called Merciful, because He shows no mercy towards
those animals (whose slaughter He sanctions). If the
Mohammedans do not know the true meaning of this passage,
its revelation is of no use

Chapter. - Tr.
mankind. But if the Mohammedans interpret it differently,
we should like to know what its plain meaning is.

2. Praise be to God, the Lord of all creatures, the
Compassionate, the Merciful." (1: 1, 2.)
~ Had the God of the Qoran been the Lord of all creatures,
and been Merciful and kind to all, He would never have
commanded the Mohammedans to slaughter men of other
faiths, and animals, etc. If He is Merciful, will He
show mercy even to the sinners? If the answer be given
in the affirmative, it cannot be true, because further
on it is said in the Qoran "Put Infidels to sword,"
in other words, he that does not believe in the Qoran
and the Prophet Mohammad is an infidel (he should, therefore,
be put to death). (Since the Qoran sanctions such cruelty
to non-Mohammedans and innocent creatures such as cows)
it can never be the Word of God.

3. "The King of the day of judgment. Thee only do
we worship and of Thee do we beg assistance. Direct
thou us on the right path. "(1:2, 4, and 5.)
~ Does not God always administer justice. If He administers
justice only on one particular day, He does wrong. It
is right to worship Him and beg assistance of Him, but
is this equally right to invoke His assistance in doing
even evil deeds? Is the right path that of the Mohammedans
alone and not of others? Why do not the Mohammedans
tread the path which is really the right one? (We hope)
they do not regard the path that leads to evil as the
right one. If good is the same in all religions, the
Mohammedan religion can have no superiority over others.
If the Mohammedans do not believe that other religions
are just as good as their own, they are prejudiced.
AND DISFAVOR OF ALLAH
Back to contents
4. "The path of those whom Thou art incensed, nor
of those who go astray." (1:6, 7.)
~ Since the Mohammedans do not believe in the previous
existence of the soul, nor that it ever did any deeds
before, their God will be open to the charge of being
partial by showing favor to some and disfavor to others
inasmuch as it is quite unjust to bestow happiness on
men or subject them to pain and suffering
paying any regard to their merits and demerits. It is
also against the nature (of God) to unreasonably look
at some with mercy and others with disdain and anger.
Indeed He cannot act arbitrarily. When the souls have
done no good or bad action in their previous lives,
is it not unfair that some should receive blessings
while the others not?
commentary on this verse says: "God Himself made the
people repeat this verse with their own lips so that
they should ever do so in future." If this be the case,
God Himself must have taught them even the alphabet.
Besides, how could they read this verse without knowing
the alphabet? Or were they made to learn it by rote?
If so, the whole of the Qoran must have been taught
this book, which is so full of partiality and favoritism
(to some). Cannot be the Word of God. For instance,
the Qoran having been revealed in Arabic, it was easier
for the Arabs to learn it, than for others. The Qoran
would have been free from this defect, had it been revealed
like the Veda in a language which is altogether distinct
from all other languages and is not the mother-tongue
of any people, just as God, through His justice vouchsafed
into us all His Word, the Veda in Sanskrit which requires
the same amount of exertion from persons of all nationalities
to be mastered.
ARROGANCE OF ALLAH PRAISING HIS OWN BOOK.
Back to contents
5. "There is no doubt in this book,; it is a direction
to the pious who believed in the mysteries of faith,
who observe the appointed times of prayer, and distribute
alms out of what we have bestowed on them; and who believed
in that revelation, which hath been sent down unto thee,
and hat which hath been sent down unto the prophets
before thee, and have firm assurance in the life to
come: these are directed by their Lord and they shall
prosper. As for the unbelievers it will be equal to
them whether thou admonish them, or do not admonish
them; they will not believe - God hat sealed up their
hearts and their hearing; a dimness covereth their sight
and they shall suffer a grievous punishment." (2: 1
~ Is it not arrogance on the part of God to praise His
own book? The revelation of the Qoran is of no use,
since the pious are already treading the right path
without extrinsic aid, while the wicked are not directed
by it. Does God provide (the Mohammedans) with necessary
cash to defray all their
out of His own treasury without any exertion on their
part or paying heed to their merits and demerits? If
He does, why does He not do the same for all? If it
is permissible to have faith also in the Bible, why
do not the Mohammedans believe in that book in the same
way as they do in the Qoran? But if they do, where is
then the necessity for the Qoran to be revealed?
it be argued that the Qoran is more comprehensive than
the Bible, it might be asked if God had forgotten to
write anything in the latter book. If He had not, it
was useless for Him to reveal the Qoran. Besides we
find that the bible and the Qoran differ so little,
in other words, they are at one with each other in most
things, it is, therefore, reasonable to ask why the
revelation was not sent down (once for all) in one (complete)
book such as the Veda?

or virtuous deeds since it cannot be said to be a free

6. "There is an infirmity in their hearts and God
hath increased that infirmity." (2: 9.)
~ Well did God increase their infirmity, while they
were innocent? Did He not have pity on them? They must
have suffered terribly indeed. Is not this act more
devilish than that of the Devil? To seal their hearts
and increase their infirmity could never be the work
of God inasmuch as the increase of infirmity is the
result of one's own sinful actions.
hath spread the earth as a bed for you and the heaven
as a covering." (2: 20.)
~ Well! Can the heaven a covering for anything? Now
does it not show ignorance (of the author of the Qoran)?
is absurd to believe in the sky being a covering. If
the Mohammedans believe some kind of planet to be the
heaven, it can only be the work of their own imagination.

8. "If ye be in doubt concerning the revelation which
we have send down into our servant, produce a chapter
like unto it and call your witnesses, beside God, if
ye say truth. But if ye do it not, nor shall ever be
able to do it, justly fear the fire whose fuel is men,
and stones prepared for the unbelievers." (2:21, 22)
~ Well! Is it impossible to produce a chapter like unto
it? Did not Maulvi Fiazi in the time of king Akbar compile
a Qoran without making use of any dotted letters in
it? What kind of fire is the hell fire? Is not the fire
(of this world) to be feared? The fire of this world
also consumes anything that may be put into it.
as it is stated in the Qoran that stones have been prepared
for the non-believers, likewise it is said in the Puraanaas
that Malechhas* are doomed to hell. Now, which
of these two statements should be accepted as correct?
According to each of these, the adherents of one sect
go to hell and those of the other to heaven. Both of
these statements are therefore false. The truth is that
only the good and the virtuous will enjoy happiness,
while the wicked will be subjected to pain and suffering
which faith they may belong to.

eaten of; and they shall be supplied with several sorts
of fruit having a mutual resemblance to one another.
There shall they enjoy wives subject to no impurity,
and there shall they continue for ever." (2: 24.)
~ The paradise as described in the Qoran is in no respect
better than this world, because the same sort of things
that are obtainable here are to be had there. The only
exception being that men here die and are born again,
whereas this is not the case with them in paradise,

goes to show that the paradise of the Mohammedans justly
resembles the Golak and the temple of the Gosaeens of
Gokal wherein women are valued more than men. Similarly
in the temple of God (paradise) women are valued and
loved more than men by God. They live forever in heaven
but not men. How can this arrangement last unless God
desires it? The Mohammedan God is surely in danger of

10. "And he taught Adam the names of all things,
and then propose them to the angels, and said, "Declare
unto me the names of these things if ye say truth."
God said, "O Adam, tell them their names" and when he
had told them their names, God said, "Did I not tell
you that I know the secrets of heaven and earth and
know that which ye discover, and that which ye conceal."
~ Could God ever deceive His angels in this way in order
to impress them with His Greatness? It was an act of
sheer imposture on His part. No enlightened man could
ever believe such a thing of God, nor would he display
such hauteur. Was it by these means that God wanted
to display His supernatural powers? Such quackery can
only flourish among the savages but not among the civilized.

11. "And when we said unto the angels, worship Adam,
they all worshipped him except Eblis (Satan), who refused,
and was puffed up with pride and became of the number
of the unbelievers." 2: 32.)
~ This indicates that the Mohammedan God was not Omniscient
i.e., He was not cognizant of the three periods of time
- the past, the present, and future. Had he been Omniscient,
He would not have created Satan. Nor was God All-powerful,
since when Satan deliberately refuse to obey Him he
could do nothing against him. Now if only one infidel
(Satan), could trouble God so much as to render Him
helpless what will He and His votaries do when they
will have to cope with millions (according to their
own belief) of infidels? God increased infirmity in
some and let others astray. He must have learnt such
things from Satan and Satan from God.
"And we said, O Adam, dwell thou and thy wife in the garden,
and eat of the fruit thereof plentifully wherever ye will;
but approach not this tee, lest ye become of the number
But Satan caused them to forfeit paradise, and turned
them out of the state of happiness wherein they had
been, whereupon we said, Get down, one of you shall
be an enemy unto the other; and there shall be a dwelling
place for you on earth, a provision for a season. And
Adam learned words of prayer for His Lord and then came
down to earth." (2: 33 - 35.)
~ This indicates that God was not omniscient inasmuch
as He one moment blesses Adam saying "Dwell thou…. In
the garden" and in the next turns them out. Had He been
cognizant of the future, He would not have blessed him
at all? It also appears that God was powerless to punish
Satan, the tempter.
God plant that tree for Himself or for others? If it
was for others He should not have prevented them (Adam
and his wife) from tasting the fruit thereof. God could
never do such things, nor could they be ever found in
His book. What were the words Adam leant from God and
how did Adam come down on earth? Is the paradise somewhere
in the sky or on some hill? Did Adam fly sown like a
bird or fall down like a stone?
appears that there is dust in paradise since Adam was
made of dust. Angels too like Adam must also have been
made of dust inasmuch as bodily organs cannot be made
without dust (earthly material) but the body made of
dust, must perish. Hence if the angels are also subject
to death, one should like to know where they go after
death. On the other hand if they do not die, they could
not have been born, but if they were born, they would
surely die. If this be the case, the statement of the
Qoran that women in paradise live for ever cannot be
valid inasmuch as they must also die. It follows, therefore,
that all those who go to heaven will also die.

13. "Dread the day wherein one soul shall not make
satisfaction for another soul, neither shall any intercession
be accepted from them, nor shall any compensation be
received, neither shall they be helped." (2: 48)
~ Should we not dread the present? One should dread
evil doing on all days. If it be true that no intercession
will be accepted, how can this statement be reconciled
with the belief of
Mohammedan that they will go to paradise through the
intercession of the Prophet? Does God help only those
who are in paradise and not those who are in hell? If
it is so, God is not free from prejudice.

said unto them, be ye changed into scouted apes. And
we made them an example unto those who were contemporary
with them and unto those who came after them, and a

~ if the book was given to Moses, the revelation of
the Qoran becomes meaningless. Both Qoran and the Bible
assert that Moses was endowed with miraculous powers,
but it is absolutely incredible, inasmuch as no man
can work miracles now-a-days, and what cannot be done
in our day, could never have been done in the past.
must have resorted to hypocrisy in the same way as the
selfish impose upon the credulity of the ignorant at
the present time. Now why does not God endow anyone
with miraculous powers when both He and His devotees
exist in our day. Where was the necessity of sending
down the Qoran when God had already given Moses a book?
If the teachings about dong good and abstaining from
evil are the same in the Bible and Qoran, the sending
down of two different books was nothing but a mere repetition
of the same. Again, did God forget to record something
in the book given to Moses that He had to send down
another book later on?
either what God said regarding their (transgressors')
being changed into scouted apes in order to make an
example for others never came to pass or He must have

their graves till the day of judgment? Is your God on

not the earth, the sun, and the moon, etc., His signs?
Is the wonderful design so manifestly seen existing

ALLAH SITTING IDLE BEFORE CREATION?

16. "They shall never continue to be the companions
of paradise. (2:75)
~ As the soul is finite, its deeds - good or bad - cannot
be infinite. It cannot, therefore be sent to an everlasting
hell or heaven. Should God do so, His justice will be
destroyed, or would He be considered and an enlightened
Being. If there is one judgment day for all souls, their
virtuous and sinful acts must be equal. Human deeds
being finite their fruits - reward or punishment - cannot
Mohammedans believe that the world had been in existence
for less than or eight thousand years. One should like
to know if God was sitting idle before Creation and
will do the same after the day of judgment. These are
all childish things, because God is ever active and
awards every soul reward or punishment in proportion
to the nature and amount of its virtuous and sinful
feeds. Hence what the Qoran teaches (on the subject)
is not right.
Q’URAN, A MERE ECHO OF THE BIBLE
Back to contents
17. " And when we made a covenant with you that ye
should not you’re your own blood, nor expel one another
from your abodes, then ye ratified it and yourselves
were witnesses. Then were ye the very persons who slew
one another; and ye drove out a part of your own people
form their abodes." )2: 78, 79.)
~ Is the making of covenants the work of man, possessed
of finite powers, or of God? God being Omniscient cannot
behave like an ordinary man. Now what kind of virtue
is this to consider it wrong to shed the blood of one's
brethren or to dispossess them of their houses, but
to regard it commendable to shed the blood of others
and dispossess them of their houses? It is merely the
result of folly and prejudice to believe in such things.
Did not God know it before hand that men would act against
their covenant? It appears from this that the Mohammedan
God has many attributes in common with the God of the
Christians and that the Qoran is not an independent
book in itself, and with a few exceptions it is a mere
echo of the Bible.
JEALOUS AND MALEVOLENT?

18. "These are they who purchase this present life
at the price of that which is to come: their torment

~ Can God ever act so jealously and malevolently? Who
are those whose sins will be remitted or who will helped?
If they are sinners whose sins will be remitted without
any punishment being inflicted on them, then God's justice
will be destroyed. If their sins will be remitted after
they have undergone punishment for them, the men referred
to in the verse will have also to suffer punishment
for their sins.
if the remission of sins refers to those men who are
pious, they by virtue of their pious life have no sins
to be remitted, what will God remit then? One naturally
infers from this that whoever uttered these words was
not an enlightened person. In fact, the righteous and
the unrighteous should be awarded reward - happiness
or punishment - sorrow and suffering - according to
the nature of their deeds - virtuous or sinful.

to you with that which your souls desire not, swell
ye with pride, and treat some as imposters, and slay
others." (2: 81)
~ When the Qoran bears witness to this that God gave
the book of law to Moses, it is incumbent on Mohammedans
to believe it. All the defects found therein, will therefore,
be regarded as those of the Muslim religion itself.
The story of miracles seems to have been connocted with
a view to play upon the credulity of simple and ignorant
people. All things which are against the laws of nature
are false. If miracles could be wrought in those days,
why can't they be done now-a-days? If not miracles can
be worked now, it is certain that none were wrought
in days gone by.
"Although they had before prayed for victory over those

the Mohammedans say, God is one without a partner? Is
he who is an enemy to others also an enemy to God? This
can never be true, since God is an enemy to none.
"And say forgiveness; and we will pardon you your sins,
give an increase to the doers of good." (2:55)
~ Does not this (so-called) Divine teaching encourage
people to live sinful lives? Why should one fear sin
when he is given the promise of redemption? He that
gives such a promise cannot be God, nor can a book that
inculcates such a doctrine be the Word of God. God can
never do injustice, but if He pardons the sinners, He
renders Himself unjust.
"And when Moses asked drink for his people, we said
"strike the rock with thy rod;" and from it there gushed
twelve fountains." (2:57)
~ Now can anyone (except the Mohammedan God) utter such
impossibilities? It is absolutely impossible to believe
that twelve springs could gush forth on striking a rock
with a rod, unless it had been hollowed out in the center
and filled with water and twelve holes bored therein.
"But God will show his special mercy to whom He will."
~ Does God show His special mercy to those who do not
deserve it? If He does, He works great mischief, for
all men will become indifferent to the practice of virtue.
No one will then lead a virtuous life and hate sin,
since His mercy depends upon His (arbitrary) will and
not upon one's deeds.
"People may not, out of malice, try to turn you away

that word and what came into being? Where from did this
world come into existence when it is written in the
Qoran that nothing but God existed before Creation?
No effect can be produced without cause. How could He
have then created this vast universe without (material)
cause. You cannot even make one leg of a fly, how can
you then believe that God create this world by the flat
of His Will.
- God is Almighty. He can do whatever He wills
~ What does the word Almighty mean?
It means that He can do whatever He likes.
~ Can He create another God? Can He die? Can He become
ill, ignorant or destitute of knowledge?
~ It is proved then that God cannot do any thing against
His Own nature, attributes and characteristics or against
those of others (matter and the soul). Three things
are essential for the production of an effect:-
(Efficient Cause) Maker, such as the potter in the
case of the pot.
Material Cause, such as clay.

just as the potter, clay and the necessary instruments
must exist before the pot can be manufactured, likewise,

this Universe came into being. Hence what the Qoran

Had not God appointed sacred place before He sanctified
Kaba? If he had, where was the necessity for consecrating
Kaba? But if He had not it is indeed a pity that those
who were born before that period had to go without a
holy place. Perhaps it had not struck God to consecrate
a place like Kaba before that.
And who but he that hath debased his soul to folly will
dislike the faith of Abraham, when we have chosen him
in this world, and in the world to come he shall be
of the Just." (2:124.)
~ Now can it ever be true that he who does not like
the faith of Abraham is a fool? Why did God choose Abraham
alone ( as the founder of the true faith)? If he did
so on account of his being very religious, there were
many others who were as religious as he, why did He
not choose them as (His prophets)? But if he chose him
because he was irreligious, He acted unjustly. It is
quite true that is only the righteous who are loved
by God and not others.

"We have seen thee turning towards every part of

~ Now is this trivial idolatry? We should think, it
is the crudest form of idolatry.
- We Mohammedans are not image-worshippers but image-breakers,
because we do not believe that Kibla is God.

regard the image as God. They profess to worship God
behind the image. If you are image-breakers, why do
you not break that big image called Kibla (the sacred

the sacred Mosque (at Mecca) which is as big as a hill.
Is this idol worship on a small scale? You could be

~ Where is the necessity of slaying other and of being
slain on God's path? Why do you not say plainly that
all this is meant for accomplishing your selfish ends.
You hold out this inducement to people that they may
fight well and help you to gain victory you’re your
enemies and acquire wealth and power by looting other
and thereby enable you to live in luxury and enjoy sensual
"God is severe in chastising. Follow not the steps of
Satan, He only enjoineth upon you evil and wickedness
and that ye should aver of God that which ye know not."
(2: 164, 165.)
~ You’re your God punish the wicked and reward the virtuous,
or does He show mercy to the Mohammedans and torture
others? If the latter, He is not God. But if your God
is not partial (to your), He will reward the virtuous
and punish the wicked whatever religion they may profess.
This being the case, the belief in the Qoran and in
Mohammad (as the prophet of God) becomes unnecessary.
Why did God create Satan - the enemy of the human race
who has been tempting all mankind. Is He not cognizant
of the future? If you say, He has created Satan just
to try man, it cannot be right, because only one who
is possessed of finite knowledge would do such a thing;
while One who is Omniscient is
aware of the good or evil deeds of the soul. Now if
Satan tempts all mankind, who tempted Satan? If it be
said that Satan tempts himself, why could not others
tempt themselves? Where is then the necessity of supposing
Satan to be the tempter of al mankind? If God was the
tempter of the Devil, He was more devilish than the
Devil. But such a thing could not be said of God. Whosoever
goes astray from the right path does so through evil
company and ignorance.
"But that which dieth of itself, and blood, and swine's
flesh, and that over which any other name than that
of God hath been invoked is forbidden you." (2: 168.)
~ Now one should pause to think and realize that an
animal whether it dies a natural death or is put to
death, is a dead body all the same; of course there
is a little difference but that difference counts for
nothing so far as death is concerned. Swine's flesh
is forbidden (but not human flesh), shall we then conclude
that is right to eat human flesh? Can it ever be commendable
to torture animals to death in God's name? This casts
a blot on the good name of God.
does He suffer the animals to be tortured by the Mohammedans
in the absence of sins committed in their previous lives
(by those animals)? Is He not Merciful to them? Does
He not love them as a father loves his children? God
did not forbid the slaughter of such animals as are
useful to man, and by failing to do it has proved Himself
to be an enemy of the human race, and brought disgrace
on Him by being guilty of having sanctioned the slaughter
of (useful) animals. Such things can never be true of
God or of His word.

therefore, go in unto them with full desire for that
which God hath ordained for you; and eat and drink until
ye can discern a white thread from a black thread by
the daybreak." 2 183.)
~ It seems that at the time the Mohammedan religion
came into being or before that period some (Arab) must
have asked a follower of the Puraanics as to what was
the mode of observing the Chandrayana fast, the
latter being ignorant of the true method of
this fast, which consists in decreasing or increasing
one mouthful of food at a time in accordance with the
increase or decrease in the digits of the moon and taking
one's food in the middle of the day, might have told
him that one should take his food on seeing the moon.
The Mohammedans have thus adopted the Chandrayana
fast in a corrupted form.
there is one great difference between the two fast;
sexual intercourse is forbidden in the Chandryana
but is permitted in the Mohammedan fast since it is
said (in the Qoran) "go in unto them with full desire."
Again, the Mohammedans are allowed to eat at night time
as often as they like. Now what kind of fast is it to
eat during the night and abstain from food during the
day? It is contrary to the laws of nature to take one's
food during the night and abstain from it during the
political supremacy in their fight for cause for Allah.

discord." (2: 186, 187, 189.)
~ Had no such teachings existed in the Qoran, the Mohammedans
would not have been so cruel to the non-Mohammedans.
They have greatly sinned by slaughtering the innocent.
They hold that one who does not believe in the Mohammedan
religion is an infidel, and that it is better to out
the infidels to the sword. They have always lived up
to their professions in this respect. They have lost
their political supremacy while "fighting" for the cause
of their God.
religion does indeed teach cruelty towards the non-
Mohammedans. Should theft be punished with theft.* Should
we also break into ht house of a person because he has
stolen our property: surely this is not right. If an
ignorant man abuses us, shall we also abuse him in return?
Such things can never be taught by God nor by one of
His enlightened votaries, nor could they be found in
His word. They can only be the utterances of an ignorant
and selfish man.
"But God loveth not disorder. O believer! Enter completely
into the true religion." (2: 202, 204

not God loved disorder, why would He have prompted them
(the Muslims) to fight and befriended the quarrelsome
Mohammedans? Is God pleased with one only when he embraces
the Mohammedan religion? If so, He is partial to the
Mohammedans, He cannot therefore, be the Lord of the
Universe. This clearly shows that neither the Qoran
is the Word of God, nor is the God described therein
the true God.
"God is Bounteous without measure to whom He will."
~ Does He show His bounty without paying any regard
to our good or evil deeds? If so, sin and virtue are
alike, since pleasure or pain (depends not upon our
deeds, but) on the (arbitrary) will of God. Now it is
such teachings that have encouraged the Mohammedans
to deviate from the path of rectitude and live free
lives. Of course those of the Mohammedans who do not
believe in such things live virtuous lives.

thus:- " A man went to Mohammad and said, 'O Prophet of
God! What does God contract debts for? Mohammad replied,
'In order to take you to paradise.' The man added 'Should

Mohammad stood surety for God and he fellow lent Him money.'
Is it not strange that the fellow did not trust God but
trusted Mohammad His, prophet?
No, never. Only an ignorant man can say such things
of God. Was his treasury exhausted or had He become
bankrupt by engaging in trade and banking? Did he act
like a businessman when He promised to pay double of
what was lent to him? Such things are done only by one
who is bankrupt, or by one whose expenses exceed his
income, but not by God.
"Some of them believed, and some were infidels; yet
if God had pleased, they would not have thus wrangled,

Divine will? Could God commit a sin if He willed? If
He could, He is no God, because no good person, let
alone God, will ever do such a thing, in other words,
he would never cause breach of peace or foment quarrels.
"Whatever exists on the earth or in the sky is for Him;

positively certain that the author of the Qoran knew

God does not guide the evil doers, He is not needed
at all, for the righteous always walk in the path or
rectitude. It is only those who have gone astray that
need guidance. It is a great mistake on the part of
the God of the Qoran that He has neglected His duty.

If it be argued that this verse only teaches that people

teachings deserve to be utterly discarded. Such a book,
such a Prophet and such a religion do nothing but harm.
The world would be better off without them. Wise men
would do well to discard a religion so absurd and accept
the Vedic faith which is absolutely free from error.
The Mohammedans say that one who kills a Mohammedan
shall be condemned to a residence in hell; on the other
hand, believers in other religions contend that a man
attains to heaven by killing a Mohammedan, now which
of the two should one believe to be true and which false?
fact is that all false creeds begotten of ignorance

after that " the guidance" has been manifested to him,

Mohammad like other men of his stamp, was well aware
that if he did not stamp his religion with divine authority
it would never flourish, or would he or his followers
be able to obtain help and power which might help them
to live a life of ease and luxury. All this goes to

and not all-pervading that apostles come down from Him.
Such a being can never be God. In one place it is written
(in the Qoran) that God is All-pervading, while in another
it is said that He is localized. This goes to show that

~ Are those the only animals and things that are forbidden?
May be, it is permissible to the Mohammedans to eat
other animals, creeping insects and ants, etc. From
this it is clear that the Qoran is not the Word of God.
It is a human work. Hence it cannot be believed in.

is God alone who should go to heaven or hell, for (according
to the Mohammedan scriptures) He is the doer of all
deeds - good or evil. The soul is not a free-agent (and
hence it is not responsible for its actions), just as
it is the commander of an army who is responsible for
whatever it does, in the matter of protecting some and
killing others, under his orders and not the army.

to him? And who saith I can bring down a book like that
which God hath sent down." (5:93.)
~ This shows that when Mohammad pretended to have had
a revelation from God, some other imposter also declared
that he too had received heavenly messages, and claimed
to be a Prophet. Mohammad must have resorted to his
device (i.e., the publication of the above verse) in
order to defeat his opponent and increase his reputation.
"We created you; then fashioned you; then said we to
the angels. "Prostrate yourselves unto Adam," and they
prostrated them all in worship, save Eblis! He was not
among those who prostrated themselves. To him said God:
"What hath hindered the from prostrating thyself in
worship at my bidding?" He said, "Nobler am I than he:
me hast thou created of fire; of clay has thou created
him." He said, 'Get thee gone hence; paradise is no
place for thy pride; get thee then, one of the despised
shalt thou be." He said, "Respite me till the day when
mankind shall be raised from the dead." He said, "Now,
for that thou hast cursed me to err, surely in thy straight
path will I lay wait for them: then will I surely come
upon them from before, and from behind, and from their
right hand, and from their left, and thou shalt not
find the greater part of them to be thankful. "He said,
"Go forth from it, a scorned, a banished one! Whoever
of them shall follow thee, I will surely fill hell with
you, one and all." (10: 10 - 17.)
~ Now reader, follow attentively this dispute between
God and the Devil. This Devil was an angel who was no
better than a menial servant, even he could not be kept
under control by God, not could the Almighty purify
his heart. On the top of this, God let the rebel who
tempted all to commit sin go unpunished. God did indeed
commit a great blunder (in doing so). Now the Devil
being the tempter of all and God being his tempter,
it is clear that God is the greater Devil of the two,
because the latter clearly says (to God) that he had
led him astray. This goes to show that God is even destitute
of purity and is at the root of all evils. Only the
Mohammedans could believe in such a God but no other
enlightened men. The Mohammedan God is proved to be
(finite, unjust) and embodied, since He talked (with
angels, etc.) just like a man. This is the reason that
the educated people do not approve of the faith of Islam.

~ Can He, who creates the world in six days and rests
on His throne in heaven, ever be an Omnipotent, and
Omnipresent God? Being destitute of such attributes
(as Omnipresence) He cannot even be called God? Is your
God deaf that He can hear you only when He is spoken
to (aloud)? All these things cannot be from God. Hence
the Qoran cannot be the Word of God. He must have indeed
got fatigued when He had to rest on the seventh day
after having created the world in six days. We wonder
if He is still asleep for has awakened. If He is awake,
is He there doing some thing or just strolling about

the Qoran) the faithful have been directed to wage war

the Qoran now contradict itself? Ti appears that Mohammad
must have adopted the first course when he was weak
and the second one when he had gained power. These two
teachings being self-contradictory cannot be true.

when he frightens a man by saying that he will send
snakes to kill him? Why is not God, who is bigoted that
He drowns one nation in the sea in order to help the
other to cross it, a sinner?

in declaring that their religions faith in the best.

because He is the Lord of all (and not of the Mohammedans

He is spoken n (aloud)? Is it not wrong to couple the

is it that one should support one's followers even though
they perpetrate injustice? He, who causes breach of

Had God to spend full six days on the creation of the

of the world in six days is baseless. Were the Muslim

the heavens or the sky? And if God has to thing of His

of minds steeped in savagery and destitute of all knowledge

~Is God the monopoly of the Muslims only, and have others
no claim on Him? And is He partial, that He reserves
His mercy only for the Muslims, and denies it to others.
If by Muslims He meant "the faithful" they do not stand

is of no use.

And if He does raise people after death, are we to think
that those who are raised are condemned for an indefinite
period to wait for
settlement of their date? Again, is it not opposed to
His own Divine law to raise the dead? Is it possible
that God should compromise His Godhead by infringing

also possess a he-camel further He must own elephants,
horses, donkeys, etc.! and does it reflect any credit
on God to get His she-camel to feed in the field of

all the pomp and splendor to be found in the house of
a mundane potentate.
"Therein shall they abide while the heavens and the
earth shall last. And as for the blessed ones - their

~ If, after the Day of Judgment, all people must repair
either to heaven or hell, why should the earth or the
sky then continue to exist? And if heaven and hell or

it follows that the assertion "that they shall abide
in heaven or hell for ever" is baseless. It is the ignorant

How did God send down the Qoran? Does God live high

All-pervading. To carry or deliver messages is the function
of a courier, and since God is confined to a particular
locality, he must needs have one. And to keep an account
(in dealings with others) becomes a man but no God who
is Omniscient. If follows from such statements of the
Qoran that it is the work of a human being, possessed
of limited intelligence.
"And he ordained that the sun and moon shall always
wander. Verily, man is an oppressor, and a heretic."
~ Do the sun and moon only keep always wandering? Does
not the earth wander too? It the earth did not revolve,
night would extend over many years. If man is disposed
by nature to be cruel, and a heretic, it becomes useless
to send him a warning through the Qoran. For, those,
who are inherently disposed to do evil, will never be
disposed to do good. As a matter of fact, there are
both good and wicked men in this world. Hence it is
evident from all this that no book which contains such
preposterous teaching can be from God.
"And when I shall have fashioned him and breathed of
my spirit into him; then fall ye down and worship him."
"O my Lord; because, thou hast beguiled me, I will surely

became God. If Adam was not God, then why did God let
him share the homage due to Him only? When God is the
beguiler of Satan, why should not He, being His preceptor,
be regarded as a greater Devil than Satan, for, while
the Muslims look upon Satan as the beguiler it is really
God who beguiles Satan. Again when Satan said in the
presence of God, "I shall beguile then all," why did
not God inflict upon him punishment and throw him into
a dungeon, yea, why did not He kill him?

what he is entitled to.
the sinners were not free-agents in committing sin,
but did it yielding to a stern necessity, having been
compelled to do so by God, why are they to blame? They
should not suffer for their deeds, on the contrary it
is God who ought to suffer punishment. And if everyone
is repaid according to the full measure of his deeds,
wherein does God's forgiveness consist? And if God does
forgive sins, He destroys justice. God never act in

connection. If there is not previous birth, where did

~ Verily, one of the most convincing proofs which God
can advance in favor of His God-head is the possession
of the she-camel! If God ordered Satan to beguile human
beings then He Himself is a greater Satan. But to call
one, who leads people to commit sin, God is a most foolish
thing. If God will call the Prophet and all his followers
on the day of judgment in order to decide the fate of
the dead, all of them will have to remain in custody
till that period. But custody without any trial is extremely
irksome and it is, therefore, the duty of every good
judge to decide cases
It is like the justice administered by Popan Bai. What
will you think of a judge who would say that he would

A wise man will, on reflection, find that the Mohammedan

~ Can all the inhabitants of a place be ever sinful?
The fact that God formed His resolution (of destroying
those cities) afterwards proves that He is not All-knowing,
for, He did so after He had seen injustice being perpetrated.
He had no knowledge of it before. (His destroying so
many cities) also proves that he is destitute of all

and we feared lest he should trouble them by error and

he found a people. They said, "O Dhoulkarnain!" Verily,
Gog, and Magog waste their land, shall we then pay thee
tribute, so thou build a rampart between us and them."
(18: 79, 84, 93.)
~ How unwise of God! He feared lest the parents of the
boy might be led to rebel against His authority. This
cannot be compatible with the nature of God. Again mark
the ignorance of the author of the Qoran! He thinks
that the sun sinks into a lake at night, and comes out
of it again at day-break. As a matter of fact, the sun
is very much larger than the earth. How can be then
set it in a river or lake or an ocean?
proves that the author of the Qoran was ignorant of
Physical Geography and Astronomy. Had he known these
Sciences, why would he have written such things as are
oppose to the dictum of knowledge? The believers in
this book are also illiterate; other wise they would
not have believed in a book which is do full of error.
Now mark God's injustice? Though He is Himself the Creator
of this earth and is its King and Judge, yet He allows
Gog and Mogog wage constant war with exh other. This
is also incompatible with the nature of God. Such a
book can only be believed in by savages and not by enlightened
"And remember in the book of the Qoran the story of
Mary: when she retired from her family to a place towards
the east, and took veil to conceal herself form them:
and we sent our spirit Gabriel unto her, and he appeared
unto her in the space of a perfect man. She said, fly
for refuge unto the Merciful God, that He may defend
me from thee, if thou fearest Him, then do not approach
me. He answered, verily I am the messenger of thy Lord,
and am sent to give thee a holy son. She said, how shall
I have a son, seeing a man hath not touched me and I
am no harlot. Gabriel replied, so hall it be: thy Lord
saith, this is easy with me; and we will perform it,
that we may ordain him for a sign unto men, and a mercy
from us: for it is a thing which is decreed. Wherefore
she conceived him and she retired aside with him in
her womb to a distant place." (19: 12 - 16, 18.)
~ It is a thing for the wise to consider that if all
the angels are the spirit of God, they could not exist
as separate entities from Him. Moreover, Mary while
she was a Virgin, gave birth to a son, although she
did not like to co-habit with any man, yet contrary
to her wishes she was conceived by the angel at the
Lord's command. Now how wrong it was of God to have
done so! There are many other objectionable things recorded
in the Qoran which we do not think advisable to mention

108. " Dost thou not see that we send devils against
the infidels to incite them to sin." (19: 78.)
~ As God Himself sends devils to incite the infidels,
the devils are innocent, neither the devils nor the
people tempted by them could, therefore, be liable to
punishment. Since all sins are committed at the bidding
of the Lord, He alone should suffer the consequences
thereof. If He is really the dispenser of justice, He
Himself should suffer in hell the consequences of His
evil deeds. But if He sets justice at naught, He becomes
a sinner, since it is a sin to perpetrate injustice.
"It will be gracious unto him, who shall repent and
believe and shall do that which is right and who shall
be rightly directed." (20: 76.)
~ It is written in the Qoran that one's sins are forgiven
by mere repentance. This encourages sin, since here
is nothing to deter men from its commission. This gook
and its author, therefore, place a premium upon sin.
Hence it is cleaar that this book cannot be the Word
of God, nor can the Being described therein be Divine.
"And we placed stable mountains on the earth, lest it
should move with them." (21: 31.)
~ If the author of the Qoran had been acquainted with
the phenomenon of the revolution of the earth, he would
never have taught that the earth was immovable, because
mountains were fixed in it. It could be argued that
if there were no mountains, it would be shaken. Why
does it quake when there is a seismic disturbance?
"And remember her who preserved her virginity, and into
whom we breathed our spirit." (21: 88.)
~ It is impossible that such obscene statements should
have been recorded in Divine revelation or even in a
book written by a decent man. When even human beings
do not relish such writings, how can God do so? It is
such statements as bring the Qoran into disrepute. If
its teachings had been good, it would have commanded
admiration like the Vedas.

where the inmates get gold ornaments studded with pearls
and silken garments. This sort of paradise can in no
way be better than the palaces of Kings; and if heaven
is the house of God, he must be living in that very
house, how can it then be said that the Qoran does not
teach idol-worship? (The Mohammedan) God is like gods
and goddesses such as Bhairva (Indian Bacchus) and Durga
(Puranas), because He accepts presents, commands people
to circumembulate His house and to offer animal sacrifices;
He is the originator of idol-worship in its most objectionable
form, because the Mosque is a huge idol than the images
of the gods. The Mohammedan God and His followers are,
therefore, worse idol-worshippers than the Pauranics
and the Jainees.

This mode of meting out justice is as bad as doing injustice.
Moreover, the Mohammedan God and His followers are guilty

"One day their own tongues shall bear witness against
them the their hands, and their feet, concerning that
which they have done. God is the Light of the Heaven
and Earth: the similitude of his light is as niche in
a wall, wherein a lamp is placed, and the lamp enclosed
in a case of glass; the glass appears as it were a shining
star. It is lighted with the oil of a blessed tree,
an olive neither of the east nor of the west, it wanteth
little but that the oil thereof would give light, although
no fire touched it. This is light added unto light.
God will direct unto His light whom he pleaseth." (24:
~ The hands and feet being inanimate cannot give evidence.
The second statement being opposed to Laws of Nature
is false. Is God fire or electricity? The illustration
given in the Qoran cannot apply to God. Such illustrations
can only apply to embodied objects.
"And God hath created every animal of water. Some go
on upon the belly. And whoso shall obey God and His
Apostle….Say: Obey God and obey the Apostle. And obey

51, 53, 55.)
~ What kind of philosophy is this that the creatures
in the composition of whose body all elements have entered
are said to have generated from water alone. This is
a foolish statement. If t is necessary that the commands
of the Prophet should be obeyed along with those of
God, He may be said to have a partner. If it is so,
why is it written in the Qoran that God is without a
second, and why do you preach this?

that which is right; verily he turneth unto God with
an acceptable conversion." (25: 25, 50, 68, 69)
~ It can never be true that the sky has been split up
by the clouds. It could be split up only if it had material
existence. The teaching of the Qoran disturbs the peace
of the world and fosters discord. It is for this reason
that righteous and learned men do not believe in it.
It is unjust that sins and virtues should be balanced
against one another. Sin and virtue cannot be compared
to oil seeds and lentils. If repentance absolves one
from sin and brings him nearer to God, no body would
be afraid of committing sins. All this is opposed to
books sent down by Allah before the Q’uran.

I hope, will forgive my sins on the day of Judgment."
(25: 50, 51, 76, 77, 80.)
~ When God first sent down His book to Moses what need
was there for sending down books to David, Christ and
Mohammad? God's knowledge must be Unchangeable and Infallible
but sending down later books would show that the knowledge
contained in the first book was fallible and imperfect.
If these first three works contained true knowledge,
the Qoran must be false.
is impossible for all the four books to teach true knowledge
because their teachings contradict each other. If God
has created souls, they must need cease to exist some
day or the other. If it is God Who gives sustenance
to man and other creatures, why do people suffer from
disease and why does not each man get an equal amount
of food? Why do some people, such as kings, get sumptuous
food and others like the paupers get poor food?
it is God Who feeds people and makes them observe the
laws of health, there should be no disease. But we see
that even the Mohammedans do suffer from disease. If
it is God who cures people of disease the Mohammedans
should always recover, but as they do not, it is clear
that the Mohammedan God is not a skilful doctor, for
if He were so, the Mohammedans would always come round.
Again, if it is God Who kills people and brings
to life, then He alone should take the consequences.
On the contrary if it be believed that punishment or
reward is awarded according to deeds done (by the soul)
in many births, He cannot be held blameworthy. If God
forgives sins and dispenses justice on the last day,
He will be a sinner and a promoter of sin. It he does
not forgive sins, it cannot but he said that this teaching
of the Qoran is false.
"Thou art only a man like unto us: produce now some
sign, if thou speakest the truth. Said, the she-camel
shall be a sign unto you: she shall have her portion
of water." (26: 154, )

Those who pinned faith to it were savages. The sign
of the camel was something which looks boorish, not
Divine. If this book had been revealed, ti would not
contain such senseless things.
"O Moses! Verily I am God, Mighty, the Wise: cast down
thy rod. And when he saw it, that it moved, as though
it had been a serpent, he retreated and fled. And God
said O Moses, fear not, for my messengers are not disturbed
with fear in my sight."
"Rise not up against me: and surrender yourself unto
me." (27: 9, 10, 27, 32.)
~ Now mark! God calls Himself Might, even a good man
would not indulge in self-commendation, why should God
do so? He became the Lord of the savages by tempting
them with a sort of jugglery. Such things cannot be
written in the Word of God. If He is the Lord of the
seventh heaven, He cannot be God being localized. If
it is a bad thing to rebel, why did God and Mohammad
write a book to extol themselves, even though the Prophet
at the instigation of God killed many which was worse
than rebellion. The Qoran is full of repetitions and
"And thou shalt see the mountains, and shalt think them
firmly fixed; they shall pass away, even as the clouds

him: and he said, O Lord, verily I have injured my own
soul, wherefore forgive me. So God forgave him; for
He is ready to forgive, and Merciful. The Lord createth
what He pleaseth; and chooseth freely." 28: 14, 15,
~ Now mark again! Are not God and Moses the Prophet
of the Mohammedans and the Christians, both unjust because
the latter killed people and God forgave him his sins.
Does God create by the caprice of His Will? Was it due
to mere caprice that one was born a king and anther
a pauper; one a scholar, and another a fool. If it is
so, the Qoran dos not inculcate truth, and the Mohammedan
God being unjust is no God at all.
"We have commanded man to show kindness towards his
parents: but if they endeavor to prevail with thee to
associate with me that concerning which thou hast no
knowledge, obey them not. We hereafter sent Noah unto
his people, and he tarried among them not. We hereafter
sent Noah unto his people, and he tarried among them
one thousand years, save fifty years." (29: 7, 13.)
~ Of course, it is good thing to serve one's parents
and it is also right not to obey them when they ask
one to believe that God shares His homage with some
other being. But they should not be believed if they
command one to tell lies, hence this injunction is only
a half truth. If He sent only Noah and other prophets
to the world who sent the other creatures? If it be
said that he sent all, then why not believe that all
are prophets. If formerly people lived for 950 years,
why do they not attain that age now? This statement
is also wrong.
"God produceth creatures, and will hereafter restore them
to life: then shall ye return unto Him. And on the day
whereon the hour shall come, the wicked shall be struck
dumb for despair. And they who shall have believed, and
wrought righteousness, shall take their pleasure in a
delightful meadow: Yet if
should send a blasting wind, and they should see their
corn yellow and burnt up. This hath God sealed up the
hearts of those who believe not." (30: 10, 11, 14, 50,
~ If God ordains Creation twice and not thrice, He must
be sitting idle before the first Creation and after
the second, and will lose all vitality after creating
the world twice. If the sinners are struck dumb with
despair on the day of judgment, so much so good, but
we hope that this verse does not mean that all except
the Mohammedans will be branded as sinners and struck
dumb with despair, for at many places in the Qoran by
the word of sinner is meant a non-Mohammedan.
the Mohammedan paradise consists of residence in a garden
and adornment of the body, it is just lie this world.
In that case it is necessary y that gardeners and goldsmiths
should be there or God should do their work. Again,
if some denizen of paradise gets a smaller number of
ornaments, he might commit theft and be hurled down
into hell. If it be so the doctrine of eternal heaven
would be falsified.
God superintends agriculture operations, He must needs
have gained some experience in the agricultural art!
Even if it be believed that God being Omniscient knew
all this, He cannot escape from the charge of having
bullied and blustered. If God sealed the hearts of men
and caused them to commit sin, He must be held answerable
for the offence and not men; even as the Commanders
are held responsible for defeat or victory, so God must
be regarded answerable for sins.
"These are the signs of the wise book. He hath created
the heavens without visible pillars to sustain them,
and hath thrown on the earth mountains firmly rooted,
lest it should move with you. Dost thou not see that
the God causeth the night to succeed the day, and causeth
the day to succeed the night? Dost thou not see that
the ships run in the sea, through the favor of God,
that He may show you of his signs?" (31: 1, 9, 28, 30.)
~ How funny! That a book like this should be regarded
full of wisdom even though it teaches things opposed
to science, such as the creation of the heavens without
visible pillars to sustain them and the fixing of the
mountains in the earth with a view to keep them immovable.
Even persons who are a little bit educated cannot write
such nonsense or believe in such balderdash. Again,
wise is the statement that the day is entangle with
the night and night with day! Every body knows that
day and night co-exist. The Qoran cannot be a book of
true knowledge, for this statement is absolutely foolish.
It is not opposed to true knowledge to say that the
ships run into the sea through the favor of God when
in reality they are propelled by machinery and by sailors?
Would not the sign of God ( a ship) sink if it was made
of iron or stone? Verily this book cannot have been
written either by God or by a learned man.

him into proper shape, and breathed of His Spirit into

given unto every soul its direction: but the word which
hath proceeded from me must necessarily be fulfilled,
when I said, verily I will fill hell with both genii
and men." (32: 4, 5, 8,10, 12.)
~ Now it is quite clear that the God of the Mohammedans
is limited by space like man, for if He were Omnipresent,
it could not be said of Him that He is stationed at
a particular place for the purpose of carrying on administrative
work and that He descends and ascends. He cannot but
be regarded as limited by space if He sends down angels
and Himself remains hung up in the sky, while His emissaries
are sent about on errands. How could God know it, if
His angels were bribed into perverting the facts of
a case or sparing the life of a doomed person.
could find out only if He were Omniscient and Omnipresent,
but that He is not. If He had been so, where was the
need of sending angels and testing people in any way?
Again, He cannot be said to be Omnipotent, because it
takes a thousand years to arrange for the return of
His emissaries. If there is an angel of death, what
is there that will bring about his death? If it be said
that that angel is eternal, then it will have to be
believe that God is not Incomparable at least so far
as eternity is concerned. One angel cannot ask many
people to repair to hell simultaneously, and if God
looks at the fun after filling hell with innocent people
who have been doomed to torture, he is
unjust and merciless. A book teaching such things cannot
be the work of God or of a learned man, while a being
devoid of justice and mercy cannot be Divine.
"Say, light shall not profit you, if ye fly from death

~ Mohammad wrote or dictated this verse to keep people
from running away from the field of battle so that victory
might be assured to his army, his soldiers might not
dread death, his wealth might increase and his religion
might spread. If the wife of the prophet is not to appear
in public shamelessly (without a veil), why should the
prophet do so. It is just that the wife should suffer
for this offence and the prophet escape scot free.

lest a crime should be charge on the true believers

have determined the matter concerning them: and the
command of God is to be performed. No crime is to be
charged on the prophet ad to what God hath allowed him.
Mohammad is not the father of any man among you:.. and
any other believing woman if she hath given herself

of they wives as thou shalt please in being called to
thy bed, and thou mayest take unot thee her whom thou
shalt please and her whom thou shalt desire: and it
shall be no crime in thee. O true believers! Enter not
the houses of the prophet." (33: 32, 37, 38, 40, 49,
~ It is extremely unjust that the women should be immured
within the four walls of the house like prisoners and
men permitted to roam about freely. Do not women feel
a desire to breathe fresh air, to walk about in open
space, and to view the phenomena of nature. This invidious
distinction accounts for the fact that Mohammedan youths
are peculiarly vagrant and licentious. Do God and His
prophet issue one and the same command or do they
different and contradictory injunctions? If the former
is the case, it is useless to say that the command of
both should be obeyed, but if the latter is the case,
then one injunction should be true, and the other false.
Thus one of these beings would be like God and he other
like the Devil and the latter will share homage with
the former. What to say about the God of the Qoran and
the prophet who wrote a book permitting the attainment
of selfish ends at the sacrifice of the good of others!
It is also clear that Mohammad was lascivious, for if
he had not been so, he would not have taken his daughter-in-law
God also proved Himself to be biased by ruling an unjust
act to be just. Even a savage considers his daughter-in-law,
sacred. How unjust it is that the prophet did not fell
the least compunction in obeying a wild and sinful impulse.
If the prophet was father to no body, who was hen the
father of Zaid (the slave). One might ask that if the
prophet could not keep himself from a connection even
with his own daughter-in-law, how could he restrain
his passions where other women were concerned?
sophistical reasoning cannot mitigate the enormity of
an offence like this. Would it have been right if some
other married woman had of here own free will desired
to lead the prophet to the hymeneal altar? How cruel
that the prophet was at liberty to divorce a wife whenever
he chose to do so, while his wife was deprived of the
right of obtaining a divorce even if he wad guilty of
misconduct! If it was necessary that no body should
enter the house of the prophet with adulterous intent,
it was likewise necessary that the latter should also
not do an act like this.
could it be right for the prophet to act as if he had
a license in this matter and still to exact admiration?
He would indeed be a perfect idiot who would believe
the Qoran to be revealed, Mohammad to be a prophet and
Mohammedan God to be an Omnipotent Lord. It is passing
strange that the Arabs believed in such idiotic and
Allah subject to pain?

"Neither is it fit for you to give any uneasiness to the
Apostle of God nor to marry his wives, after him, for

true believers of either sex, without their deserving
it, shall surely bear the fruit of calumny
a manifest injustice. And being accused, wherever they
are found they shall be taken, and killed with a general
slaughter. O Lord give them the double of our punishment,
and curse them with a heavy curse." (33: 53, 57, 58,
~ Now mark! Is the Mohammedan God asserting His Omnipotence
in an equitable manner? If it was right to command people
not to inflict pain on the prophet, it was also, proper
to adjure the prophet not cause suffering to others.
Why did he not do so? Is God subject to pain? If He
is, then He cannot be God. Does not the injunction to
abstain from causing suffering to God and His prophet
imply that they both are free to inflict pain? If it
is not a good thing to injure Mohammedans and their
wives, it is equally bad to torment others. If this
view of the question be not accepted, then God and His
prophet should be believed to be biased and anxious
to sow discord.
are very few people in the world who are so merciless
as these two. Would not the Mohammedans feel aggrieved
if some body ordained that they should be pinioned and
killed, as, the Qoran has done in the case of non-Muslims.
The prophet was very hardhearted, for he prayed to God
that Non-Muslims should receive double the punishment
awarded to Mohammedans. This statement also is selfish
and unrighteous. Perhaps those are scapegraces among
the Mohammedans who do things like that. Truly has it
been said that an untutored man is like unto a beast.
"It is God who sendeth the winds, and raiseth a cloud;
and we drive the same unto a country, dead (from drought)
and thereby quicken the earth after it hath been dead;
so shall the resurrection be. Who hath caused us to
take up our rest in a dwelling of eternal stability,
through His Bounty, wherein, no labor shall touch us,
nor shall any weariness affect us." (35: 9, 35.)
~ What a strange philosophy does God preach? He sends
the winds and raiseth a cloud, and by means of these
brings the dead into life. This cannot be predicated
of the true God, for He always acts in a consistent
manner. A house cannot stand unless it has been made,
and whatever had been made cannot last
ever. Whoever has got a body would feel miserable if
he had nothing to do and is subject to disease. If this
is true in the case of a person holding sexual intercourse
with one man, how much more so it in the case of him
who cohabits with many wives. His lot would indeed be
pitiable. Hence Mohammedans cannot enjoy genuine happiness

~ If the Qoran were the work of God, how could He swear
by it? If the prophet had been a messenger of God, he
would not have fallen in love with his daughter-in-law.
It is foolish to assert that the believers in the Qoran
are on the straight path, for he alone is said to tread
that path who believes in truth, utters truth, acts
in conformity with truth and shapes his conduct in accordance
with the dictates of Dharma (duty) which consists of
justice and freedom from prejudice and forsakes all
that is opposed to them. Neither the Qoran nor the Mohammedans
nor their God satisfies these conditions. If Mohammad
had been the greatest prophet, he would have been the
most learned and the most virtuous among men. The praise
of Mohammedanism by Mohammad is like the praise by a
coaster-monger of his own plums.

If you do, it is foolish to regard such a person a prophet.

associates He must also be like them. A being who recites
old wives' tales and kills other people through prejudice

The very fact that the Arabs have been promised cushions,
cushioned seats, pillows, fruits and drinks, proves
that Arabia was not in affluent circumstances at the

Where did these women come from? Are the dwellers of

alone held aloof. God said to Satan, "I have made him
with both my hands, do thou, therefore, not be proud."

Himself from His Creation? All this creation belongs
to the true God.

God curse and rebuked Satan and sent him to jail. Satan

God being not insensible to flattery complied with his

people and raise the standard of rebellion." God retorted,
"Whoever is tempted by you will be hurled into hell
by me along with thee." Gentle reader! Just consider
whether God tempted him
he was tempted of his own accord. If God did it, He
was greater Devil of the two, and if Satan was tempted
on his own accord, other people can also be tempted
likewise. Where then is the need of Satan? In so far
as God let the rebel Satan loose, He also was responsible

shall be laid open, and the Prophets and the martyrs
shall be brought as witnesses; and judgment shall be
given." (39: 53, 67, 69.)
~ If God forgives all sins, He leads the entire world
to unrighteousness. He is also merciless, for if a wicked
man is shown mercy and forgiven, he will commit more
mischief and cause suffering to many a good man. Even
if the slightest offence is left unpunished, the world
will become full of sin. Is God Resplendent like fire?
Where is the page of destiny and who writes it? If God
dispenses justice with the aid of prophets and witnesses,
he must be of limited knowledge and power. If he is
not unjust and dispenses uniform justice, he must be
dealing with all people according to their past deserts.
Deeds must have been done either in the past birth or
in the present one. It is, then, clearly unjust to forgive
sins, to seal the hearts, to keep people in ignorance
to let the Devil tempt them, and subject them to torture.

weighing his demerits. If God is such a creature of
mere whim, He is unjust. Mark the extraordinary cleverness

can He then create another God? If He cannot, are we
to understand that His Omnipotence here has come to
a dead halt? And if it is God that grants offspring
unto men, who is it that grants the same unto fowls,
fishes, pigs, etc., that have a more numerous progeny?
And why cannot He grant offspring (to mortals) unless
men and women cohabit?
does He condemn some women to a life of sterility and

curtains, one made of God and the other made of white
pearls and the distance between them was such as could
be covered by a traveler in seventy years." Let the enlightened
reader decide whether it was God or a purda lady who speaks
from behind a curtain. These people (Mohammedans) have
indeed degraded the very idea of God head, Oh! What a
difference between the All-holy Supreme spirit spoken
of by the Upanishads and other true books, and the God
of the Qoran who speaks from behind a purda. The fact
is that the Arabians were quite illiterate, they could
not have talked sense.

the prophet be true, they must be taking good care to
make God thoroughly play into their hands. Should you
argue that God is All-knowing and All-pervading ( as
He really is), this assertion about His talking from
behind a curtain and obtaining news as if it were by
post would be utterly meaningless. If He stands in need
of such agencies, He could not be God. He must be rather
come shrewd piece of humanity. Hence the Qoran can never
be of Divine origin.

inflicted great suffering on the human race and of being
selfish and altogether destitute of fellow-feeling.
Would not the Mohammedans also suffer, if the non-Mohammedans
were to pay them in their own coin? It was indeed very
unjust of God to have destroyed cities that turned out
(the Mohammedan) paradise, in which rivers of pure water,
milk and clarified honey flow, be any better than this
mortal world. Rivers of milk, whose taste changeth not,
cannot exist, because it turns sour in a short time.

Will He make the mountains fly as if they were so many

shall retain minutest bodies. Why then deny that they
may be born again?
Were not the Muslim God corporeal, how could anyone
stand on His right or left (as asserted in the Qoran)?
the inmates of paradise always keep sitting idle, reclining
on their pillows, or do they ever do anything? If they
keep sitting idle, they could not properly digest their
food, which must produce disease and thus carry them
early to their graves. But it they do any work, they
must be earning their livelihood in paradise after the
fashion of mortals here. What is there then to distinguish
paradise from this world? Of course nothing.
those boys always live in paradise, their parents as
well as their fathers - and mothers-in-law must also
do the same. This means that it must be a big colony
there wherein diverse kinds of disease are bound to
prevail on account of the accumulation of the night
soil and other kinds of filth.
(as asserted) they eat fruits, drink water out of tumblers
and quaff wine out of wine-cups, why would not they
be subjected to head-aches, and indulge in unbecoming
expressions? If it be a fact that they surfeit themselves
there with fruits and with the flesh of birds and beasts,
they are sure to be afflicted with various kinds of
disease and suffering.

Verily, it is hard to sufficiently praise the Muslim
Paradise! It seems as if it is even superior to Arabia!
Of course when they become inebriate by free indulgences
in meat and wine in paradise, they must stand in need
of beautiful girls and handsome youths, otherwise the
potations might affect their brains, and thereby transform
them into raving maniacs! It is
that there should be a sufficient number of beds to
accommodate so many people in paradise.
course it stands to reason that there should be youths
in paradise when God had created virgins there. But
we are told that the virgins in paradise are destined
to be united to those male mortals who repair to paradise
from this world. What about those male youths then who
perpetually swell in paradise? God has kept reticent
as regards their marriage, will they also along with
the virgins be surrendered to their candidate-mortals
from this world?
has thrown no light on this point, and it must be regarded
as a great omission on His part. If women in paradise
are united to men of the same age, it is not, since
the male should always be twice as old as the female
or even older. So much regarding the Mohammedan paradise,
as regards the Mohammedan hell, its inmates will have
to feed on (thohar) Euphorbia nereifolia [This means
that there are thorny trees in hell baring thorns],
and drink hot water. Such then are the sufferings they
will be afflicted with in hell.
a servant of Muhammad?

which God hath made lawful to thee, from a desire to
please thy wives, since God is lenient, and merciful.
Verily God is his protector. Happily if he put you both
away, his Lord in exchange will give him wives better
than you, Muslims, believers, devoutly penitent, obedient,
observant of fasting, both known of men and virgins."
(50: 1, 5)
~ If we reflect a little on the above, we shall see
that God is but a servant of Mohammad to manage his
affairs - internal as well as external! Two stories
are told in connection with the first verse. One is
that Mohammad was excessively fond honey and
He had many wives, and one day he was delayed while
taking this drink in a house of one of them. The delay
rather irritated his other wives. Mohammad then swore
that he would never again drink honey and water. The
second story is that one night Mohammad was to go to
a particular wife of his. She was not there - in fact
she was gone to her father's house; Mohammad, therefore,
sanctified a female slave of his! When the wife referred
to came to know of this, she became angry with the prophet
and made him swear that he would never do such a thing
again, while he asked her to bind herself to observe
the secrecy, she promised not do disclose the matter
to anyone. But then he went to another wife of his and
narrated the story to her. God then inspired Mohammad
with this verse:-
dos thou consider that to be forbidden which God hath
made lawful?" etc. Le the wise declare if ever God acts
as an arbitrator in the household affairs of any man.
And as regards Mohammad's character, sufficient light
is thrown on it by the aforementioned stories, for how
can a man, who is the husband of many wives, be either
a pious man or a prophet? Again, is he not partial,
and therefore, sinful who, actuated by partiality, disgraces
one wife and honors another. And how can he, who, not
being content with many wives, co-habits with his slaves,
be moral, God-fearing and pious? Some one has well said:-
debauchee is not afraid or ashamed (or his turpitude)"!
Even the God of these people acted as judge deciding
disputes between the prophet and his wives. Let the
wise now say whether the Qoran is written by God or
is it the work of some ignorant, and selfish fellow.
Again, from the second verse it appears that when a
wife or Mohammad God angry with him, God threatened
her by saying that if she continued recalcitrant and
Mohammad divorced her on that account, He would give
him better wives, who had not had any sexual connection
with any man before. Any person, with a grain of sense
in him, can understand whether these are the doings
of God or of a being who is bent upon gaining his own
selfish ends. These things clearly show that God said
nothing of the sort, and that it was Mohammad, and not
anything suited to the occasion to serve his selfish
purpose and attributed all these things to God. Not
only we but all thoughtful men will say that (the Mohammedan)
God was a mere procurer of wives for Mohammad.
" O Prophet, make war on the infidels and hypocrites
and deal rigorously with them." (66: 9.)
~ Again, mark the wonders wrought by the Mohammedan
God! He incites the Prophet and the Mohammedans to fight
with persons professing other religions. This is why
Mohammedans are always engaged in war. May God have
pity on the Muslims, so that they may give up fighting
and live on friendly terms with all.

~ What a deep philosophy, and what a remarkable sense

There is no doubt now as to the God of the Qoran being
corporeal, since none who has not a body can sit on
a throne and order it to be borne by eight men on their
shoulders. Besides, front and behind can only be predicated
of one that has a physical body.
God is corporeal, He is necessarily limited to a certain
place and, therefore, cannot be Omniscient, Omnipresent,
Almighty, nor can He be cognizant of the deeds of all
souls. To place books (of their deeds) in the right
hand of the virtuous and have it read out and then send
them to heaven, while to place books (of their deeds)
in the left hand of the wicked and send them to hell,
and to dispense justice with the help of books are very
strange doings for an Omniscient God! Can an All-knowing
Being ever act like this? It is mere childish prattle.

so, then all these will fall ill and die again. Will

why are those poor people, some of whom are virtuous

" For He it is who formed you by successive steps.
See ye not how God has created the seven heavens one
over the other.
And He has placed therein the moon as a light, and has
placed there the sun as a torch." (71:14, 16)
If God created the soul, it can never be eternal or
immortal. How can it then live for ever in paradise
when what is created must perish? How can God place
one heaven over another, since it is formless and all-pervading?
If you give the name of heaven to some thing other than
Akaash (ether), it would serve no useful purpose.
If heavens are placed one over the other, the sun and
the moon cannot be placed between them. If they are
placed in their middle, then only those that are immediately
above and below will be in light; all others, beginning
form the second heaven will be in darkness. But such
is not the case, hence all this is wrong.
"It is into God that the temples are set apart: Call

against the teachings of the Qoran, but if it is not
so, the verse of the Qoran referred to must be false.

do women become pregnant in paradise as the result of
sexual intercourse with men and do they give birth to
children? If they do not, the sexual connection is useless,
and if they do, whence do those souls come from? And
why are they born in paradise without having worshipped
God ( (on the earth)? If they are born there without

God make Ruh and other angels stand in a line and form
them into a regiment? Will He invest it with power to

We too will summon the guards of hell. (126: 15, 16,

servant - that of dragging a person. Can the forelock

the Q’uran revealed in one night?

159. "Verily, we have caused it to descend on the
night of power. And who shall teach thee what the night
of power is? Therein descend the angels and the spirit
by permission of their Lord for every matter." (127:
1, 2, 4.)
~ If the whole of the Qoran was revealed in one night,
how can the assertion that a particular verse was revealed
at a particular time be true? When the night is dark,
everybody knows it to be so without being told. We have
already said that there is not up and down in space,
but it is said that the angels and the Holy Ghost, at
the command of God, come here to manage the affairs
of this world. This clearly proves that God, like men,
is confined to a certain place. So far the Qoran has
talked about a God, the angels and the prophet, now
we have got the mention of a fourth being, named, the
Holy Ghost. The fourth is an addition to the three personages
believed in by the Christians, namely, God, the Son
and the Holy Ghost. If you (Mohammedans) argue that
you do not believe these three to be God, let it be
so, but if the Holy Ghost is quite different from others,
should the other three be called holy spirits? If they
too are Holy spirits, why is only one particular person
called Holy Ghost. Again, God swears by night and day
, by horses and other animals, and by the Qoran, surely,
swearing is not resorted to by the good.

We lay this criticism on the teachings of the Qoran
before all thinking people. let them decide for themselves
as to what sort of book it is. As for your opinion,
we think that this book can
be the work of God nor that of an enlightened person,
nor does it contain knowledge. We have pointed out some
of its many faults so that people may not be taken in
and thereby waste their lives. Whatever little truth
it contains being in harmony with the teachings of the
Vedas and other scientific works, is acceptable to us
as it is to other wise and enlightened men who are free
from bigotry and religious prejudices.
rest is superstition and error. It increases the sufferings
of the human race by making man a beast, and disturbs
the peace of the world by promoting war and by sowing
the seeds of discord. Besides, the Qoran is simply replete
with useless repetitions. May God be Merciful unto all
men so that they may love one another, live together
in peace and a promote each other's happiness.
all enlightened men were, like us, to point out, in
an impartial spirit, various defects found in different
religions, it is not at all impossible that all quarrels
should cease, that people should live together in peace
all following one religion, and that truth should thus
triumph. The wise and the good, it is hoped, will understand
the motives which actuated the writer of these lines
and profit by what little has been said her about the
Qoran. They are requested to correct any mistakes that
might have crept into the book through error of judgment.
the Muhammad prophesied in the Vedas?

Now there is only one thing left (before we are done
with this subject.) the Mohammedans, not often, say,
write or publish that the Mohammedan religion is spoken
of in the Atharva Veda. It will suffice to say that
there is not a word about this faith in the Veda in
-Have you read the whole of the Atharva Veda? If you
have refer to Allopanishad. It is given there in plain
words. Why do you then say that nothing is said in the
Atharva Veda about the Mohammedan religion? Here is a
passage from the Allopanishad: -
ille Mitra Varuna………allorasul Mohammad Akbarasya Allo
Mohammad is here spoken of as the prophet in unequivocal
terms, is a sufficient proof of the fact that the Muslim
faith has its origin in the Veda.
~ If you have not read the Atharva Veda, come to us
and look through its pages from beginning to end, or
you may go to any person who knows that book and read
with him all the verses given in its twenty chapters.
You will never find the name of your Prophet in it.
And as regards Allopanishad it is not given in the Atharva
Veda or in its ancient commentary, called the Gopath
Braahama or in any of its Shaakhaas (branches). We surmise
that some one wrote it in the reign of the Emperor Akbar.
Its author appears to have been a man who knew a little
of Sanskrit and Arabic, because in its text both Sanskrit
and Arabic words occur. For example, the Arabic words
Asmallam Ille and the Sanskrit words Mitra and
Varuna occur in the above passage and the same is seen
throughout the whole book.
we look to its meaning, it is altogether artificial,
unsound and opposed to the teachings of the Veda (while
the construction of words and sentences, is quite ungrammatical).
The followers of other creeds who are blinded by bigotry
have also likewise forged Upanishads such as Swarop
Upanishad, Narsinhatapni, Ramtapni, Gopal tapni.
- No one ever expounded this theory ( as regards the
Allopanishad) before; how can we then believe you?
~ Our statement cannot be wrong whether you believe
it or not.
contention can be accepted as true only when you, in
a manner similar to that in which we have shown it to
be wrong, point it (Allopnishad) out in the Veda, the
Gopath, or in any of its ancient Shakhaas and show satisfactorily
that the interpretation you put upon it is in harmony
- What a good religion is ours. By embracing it one
can enjoy all the pleasures of this world as well as
attain salvation hereafter.
~ Other sectaries also say "Our creed is the best, all
other are bad. No one can attain salvation without accepting
our faith." All that we believe is that truthfulness
in speech, love, fellow-feeling and the like virtues,
in whatever creed they may be found, are commendable,
while wrangling, and harboring of jealousy and hatred,
dissimulation and the like evil practices, advocated
by whatsoever creed they may, are condemnable. If you
are sincerely desirous of getting hold of truth, embrace
the Vedic religion.
