This post concerns only verses in Surah (Chapter) 6, a rather tedious and repetitive slog of 165 verses. As I’ve been reading my way through the Qur’an and making comments on each chapter, I’ve noticed a constant drumbeat against Christianity and Judaism; it returns to this theme multiple times in each chapter. A picture is being painted of a very insecure Allah, preoccupied with railing against biblical doctrines and peoples. The book is essentially one long polemic against Jews and Christians.
Here are some examples of energy expended against a non-Unitarian God, specifically Yahweh as revealed in the Bible:
6:1: Those who reject Faith hold others as equal, with their Guardian-Lord.
6:14: Be not of the company of those who join gods with Allah.
6:19: Do you testify that with Allah there are other deities? …Say, “Indeed, He is but one God”
6:22: One day shall We gather them all together: We shall say to those who associated others with Allah: “Where are the partners whom you invented and talked about?
6:64: Say, “It is Allah who saves you from it and from every distress; then you still associate others with Him.”
6:101: He is Originator of the heavens and the earth. How could He have a son when He does not have a companion and He created all things?
6:163: No partner has He…
The Bible promises that “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.“ 1 John 5:11,12
Another topic that finds no comparison in biblical doctrines – Allah purposefully leading people astray:
6:39: Whom Allah pleases He causes to err and whom He pleases He puts on the right way.
6:110: And We will turn their hearts and their sights, even as they did not believe in it the first time, and We will leave them in their transgression, blindly wandering on.
6:125: Whomever Allah wills to guide, He expands his breast to Islam; and whomever He wills to lead into error, He makes his breast straitened, restricted, as if he were laboriously climbing up in the heaven.
Yeshua said “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.” Matthew 11:28,29
