Vital evidences from the Qur’an itself prove why Islam cannot be the true religion. Of course, this also rules out Islam’s lone prophet. While there are far too many errors in the Qur’an, we will focus on just one specific blunder that will prove irrefutably why Allah cannot be the true God.
If there are really solid evidences to validate Allah as the true God, he would have surely specified these evidences in the Qur’an. Since there were none, he was unable to provide a single tangible/visible evidence to authenticate his Godship. As a result, he had to appeal to unseen evidences to validate his claim as the true God. Can unseen evidences be used to prove anything? To understand what we mean by this, please read the following Qur’anic verse carefully. In view of the extreme absurdity of this Qur’anic verse, we have provided two different translations:
Surah 21:30: Do the disbelievers not see that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one, before We tore them apart? We made every living thing from water. Will they not then believe? (S. V. Ahamed)
Did those who reject not see that the heavens and the Earth were one piece and We tore them apart? We made from the water everything that lives. Will they not believe? (Monotheist Group)
Can you fathom the utter stupidity of the question raised by Allah in this Qur’anic verse? Allah is asking: “Do the disbelievers not see that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one, before We tore them apart?” Is it really possible for the disbelievers to witness this phenomenon? Read the Qur’anic verse carefully once again. The whole thrust of Allah’s argument is that the disbelievers have no basis whatsoever to reject him because of their having witnessed this phenomenon. Thus, the whole strength of Allah’s defense to counter the disbelievers is based on his assumption that they were eye-witnesses of this phenomenon.
Allah presumes that since the disbelievers had already witnessed this phenomenon of the heavens and the earth being joined together as one before he subsequently separated them, the disbelievers have no excuse for not believing in him. Allah even seems perplexed as to why the disbelievers still do not believe in him even after having witnessed this clear evidence. Note the tone of astonishment in his words:
“Do the disbelievers not see that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one, before We tore them apart? . . . Will they not then believe?”
For the disbelievers to “see that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one before Allah tore them apart,” they will have to actually witness the creation of the universe in stages. This means that the disbelievers must be present not only during the period when the heavens and the earth were joined together as one but these very same individuals must also live on to witness the heavens and the earth being separated subsequently. Moreover, since humans could not have been created before the creation of the heavens and the earth, it is absolutely impossible for the disbelievers to witness this phenomenon. As such, how could Allah then ask: “Will they not then believe?”
Had the Qur’an appealed to the visible creation to prove the existence of an invisible Creator, there would be no cause to fault it. However, since it irrationally demands the disbelievers to believe in Allah on the basis of unseen evidences, it has shown itself to be a product of an ignorant deity. Can anything be more foolish than this? Can unseen evidences be used as evidences to prove anything? Can the existence of someone unseen be proven by evidences that are equally unseen?
Since the disbelievers did not see and could not have seen “the heavens and the earth were joined together before Allah tore them apart,” then according to the very argument put forth in this Qur’anic verse, the disbelievers now have a legitimate reason not to believe in Allah. And so do you. Therefore, this Qur’anic verse is actually providing you with a solid reason not to believe in Allah. And this also means rejecting the religion he inspired. It was certainly foolish of Allah to ask:
“Do the disbelievers not see that the heavens and the earth were joined together as one, before We tore them apart? Will they not then believe?”
The questions raised by Allah are not only illogical but also grossly erroneous. If Allah cannot even ask the right questions, do you think he can give you the right answers? More importantly, can you trust him now with your eternal salvation? However, this absurdity in the Qur’an does not stop here. There is more to it. In fact, Allah also contradicts himself. He contradicts the very words which he revealed in Surah 21:30. Now let us read the contradictory words of Allah in the following Qur’anic verse:
Surah 41:11: Then, He rose over the high heavens when it was smoke: And He said to it and to the earth: “You both come together, willingly or unwillingly.” They both said: “We do come together in willing obedience.” (Syed Vickar Ahamed)
Never mind the fact that the physical heavenzs and the earth cannot communicate as humans do. The above Qur’anic verse clearly states that during the process of creation, the heavens and the earth existed separately until Allah called them to “come together.” So, were the heavens and the earth joined together as one before Allah separated them (Surah 21:30) or were they originally separate until Allah joined them together? (Surah 41:11) This is just one out of the many contradictions we can find in the Qur’an.
Now contrast the absurdity of Allah with the logical approach Jesus used to authenticate his Messiahship. To prove to the disbelievers that he was truly the Messiah, Jesus provided tangible evidences:
John 10:25: Jesus answered them: “I told you, and yet you do not believe. The works that I am doing in my Father’s name, these bear witness about me.
Jesus appealed to the miraculous works that he performed publicly to validate his anointing as the promised Messiah. It is essential to remember that both the miraculous works of Jesus and his status as the Messiah is acknowledged in the Qur’an.
Surah 3:49: And Jesus said: “I have been appointed as a Prophet to the Jewish nation. I am blessed by my Lord with the following miracles: I will restore the vision to the blind, heal the leprous and bring dead back to life by the will of the Lord. I will tell you what you eat and what you have stored at the privacy of your home. All these miracles are in order to convince those who believe in God.” (Bijan Moeinian)
Surah 3:45: When the angels said, O Mary, your Lord gives you good news of a Word from Him. His name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, honored in this world and in the next and one of those who are granted nearness to God. (W. Khan)
Jesus appealed to the visible (his miraculous works) to prove the invisible (the truthfulness of his claim as the Messiah). Allah could have done the same. Instead, Allah did the very opposite. He appealed to the invisible because he could not provide any visibleevidence to validate his Godship. We will now compare the foolishness of Allah with the wisdom of the true God. Jehovah God wisely used the visible to prove the invisible.
Hebrews 3:4: “Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but he that constructed all things is God.”
Using simple logic, the Bible reasons that just as a house cannot come into existence by itself without a builder (seen), neither can the universe come into existence by itself without a Creator (unseen). The visible to prove the invisible. In contrast, the Qur’an foolishly attempts to prove the invisible with the invisible. Worse still, the Qur’an demands that the disbelievers exercise faith in Allah on the basis of something that is logically impossible for them to perceive. Ironically, the very basis for demanding us to exercise faith in Allah has provided us with a valid reason not to believe in him. Allah simply cannot be the Creator. There are many more such evidences in the Qur’an to prove through and through why Islam is false and Allah is an impostor. That is why he had to choose an illiterate as his prophet. Others would have called his bluff
