Mohammad's Christmas Special

The Noble Quran - Mary, Mother of Jesus also the sister of Aaron and Moses

19:1 Kaf. Ha. Ya. A'in. Sad.
19:2 A mention of the mercy of thy Lord unto His servant Zachariah.
19:3 When he cried unto his Lord a cry in secret,
19:4 Saying: My Lord! Lo! the bones of me wax feeble and my head is shining with grey hair, and I have never been unblest in prayer to Thee, my Lord.
19:5 Lo! I fear my kinsfolk after me, since my wife is barren. Oh, give me from Thy presence a successor
19:6 Who shall inherit of me and inherit (also) of the house of Jacob. And make him, my Lord, acceptable (unto Thee).
19:7 (It was said unto him): O Zachariah! Lo! We bring thee tidings of a son whose name is John; we have given the same name to none before (him).
19:8 He said: My Lord! How can I have a son when my wife is barren and I have reached infirm old age ?
19:9 He said: So (it will be). Thy Lord saith: It is easy for Me, even as I created thee before, when thou wast naught.
19:10 He said: My Lord! Appoint for me some token. He said: Thy token is that thou, with no bodily defect, shalt not speak unto mankind three nights.
19:11 Then he came forth unto his people from the sanctuary, and signified to them: Glorify your Lord at break of day and fall of night.
19:12 (And it was said unto his son): O John! Hold fast the Scripture. And we gave him wisdom when a child,
19:13 And compassion from Our presence, and purity; and he was devout,
19:14 And dutiful toward his parents. And he was not arrogant, rebellious.
19:15 Peace on him the day he was born, and the day he dieth and the day he shall be raised alive!
19:16 And make mention of Mary in the Scripture, when she had withdrawn from her people to a chamber looking East,
19:17 And had chosen seclusion from them. Then We sent unto her Our Spirit and it assumed for her the likeness of a perfect man.
19:18 She said: Lo! I seek refuge in the Beneficent One from thee, if thou art God- fearing.
19:19 He said: I am only a messenger of thy Lord, that I may bestow on thee a faultless son.
19:20 She said: How can I have a son when no mortal hath touched me, neither have I been unchaste ?
19:21 He said: So (it will be). Thy Lord saith: It is easy for Me. And (it will be) that We may make of him a revelation for mankind and a mercy from Us, and it is a thing ordained.
19:22 And she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a far place.
19:23 And the pangs of childbirth drove her unto the trunk of the palm-tree. She said: Oh, would that I had died ere this and had become a thing of naught, forgotten!
19:24 Then (one) cried unto her from below her, saying: Grieve not! Thy Lord hath placed a rivulet beneath thee,
19:25 And shake the trunk of the palm-tree toward thee, thou wilt cause ripe dates to fall upon thee.
19:26 So eat and drink and be consoled. And if thou meetest any mortal, say: Lo! I have vowed a fast unto the Beneficent, and may not speak this day to any mortal.
19:27 Then she brought him to her own folk, carrying him. They said: O Mary! Thou hast come with an amazing thing.
19:28 O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a wicked man nor was thy mother a harlot.
19:29 Then she pointed to him. They said: How can we talk to one who is in the cradle, a young boy ?
19:30 He spake: Lo! I am the slave of Allah. He hath given me the Scripture and hath appointed me a Prophet,
19:31 And hath made me blessed wheresoever I may be, and hath enjoined upon me prayer and almsgiving so long as I remain alive, 19:32 And (hath made me) dutiful toward her who bore me, and hath not made me arrogant, unblest.
19:33 Peace on me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive! 19:34 Such was Jesus, son of Mary: (this is) a statement of the truth concerning which they doubt.

There are two important errors from the above surah:

1) (9:23-25)Mary complains to a palm tree about the pains of childbirth. The tree tells her to shake its trunk and ripe dates will fall. - Based on the bible - this did not happen
2) (9:28) Mary, the mother of Jesus, was the sister of Aaron. (Apparently, Muhammad confused Mary with Miriam.) Mary and Jesus were thousands of years apart. How is it possible that Mary, mother of Jesus was also the sister of Moses and Aaron?

According to Ishaq, Mohammad (may peace be upon him) learned his stories from a young Christian boy

Ishaq 180: "According to my information, the Apostle often sat by a young Christian slave named Jabr. The Meccans said, ‘He is the one who teaches Muhammad most of what he brings.'" Then Allah revealed,
Qur'an 16:103
"We know what they (pagans) say: 'It is only a mortal man who teaches him (Muhammad). But the tongue of the man they wickedly point to is notably foreign, while this (Qur'an) is pure Arabic.'"
When accused of plagiarism, the best Mohammad and Allah could do was to claim that the Bible Jabr was quoting from wasn't written in Arabic. That's a problem. First, by responding to the Meccan's claim that Muhammad was out of his mind, a demon-possessed madman, plagiarizing scripture, the Qur'an confirmed that these were legitimate concerns.

If this is the case, there are three options that a Muslim must take.

1) Either Mohammad got the Quran by plagiarizing from a you Christian named Jabr, with clear errors from a slave whow as probably forced to tell the Prophet bible stories; or
2) Allah revealed to Mohammad surahs where Mohammad did not understand what was going, probably because he was preoccupied with being in the bed of Aisha ( or reciting them when other Muslims were having sex (; or

3) Once again, Mohammad is receiving divine revelations from Satan (why else would these surrahs be so blatantly false)

How else could the Quran be so wrong on such a logical fact? How can one trust there salvation based on such an eggregious lie? Can a Muslim trust that they would get 72 virgins in heaven if a) The quran was not revealed to Mohammad by Allah; b) Mohammad would get confused about important facts; or c) Allah would actively lie to Muslims?

These answers need real clarification, especially for all Muslims. Merry Christmas!
