Thus Spake Mulla Naseeruddeen,
Rishi Dayanand writes in his granth Satyarthaprakash that the
Quran is not the word of God.
He starts his critical appraisal with the following observation:
1.“(I begin this book) In the name of God, the Compassionate,
the Merciful.” (Surah Al-Fatiha 1:1.)
C. ~ The Mohammedans claim that this Qur’an 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.
If (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 animals.”
It 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 to mankind.
But if the Mohammedans interpret it differently, we should
like to know what its plain meaning is.
Islam-Vadi: If only Swamiji had carefully read the first
mantra of Rigveda, he would not have raised such a false
अग्निमीळे पुरोहितं यज्ञस्य देवं रत्वीजम |
होतारं रत्नधातमम ||
“We Laud Agni, the chosen Priest, God, minister of
sacrifice, The hotar, lavishest of wealth. Worthy is Agni to be
praised by living as by ancient seers. He shall bring
hitherward the Gods. Through Agni man obtaineth wealth, yea,
plenty waxing day by day, most rich in heroes, glorious.”
[Rig Veda – Mandal 1;Sookt 1;Mantra 1]
Now, if Rigveda is the word of God, then who is speaking these words?
If Swami feels that a revealed book of God
must start with the words, “I write this book for the
instruction of mankind” that would even disprove his own
Vedas as being revealed texts. None of the four
Vedas begins with those words.
Mulla Naseeruddeen has either failed to understand the
observations of Rishi Dayanand or is pretending.
Rishi Dayanand has questioned the words ‘(I begin this book) ‘ .
Do the aryans start reading the vedas with the
intonation of (I begin this book) ??
Do the aryans use the 1st mantra of rigved
before starting any work?
Hence the ploy of Naseeruddeen to use the same
question to debunk vedas is laughable.
In case the muslims interpret it differently, then
they should read the what swamiji writes in the beginning
of the chapter on quran. ————————“The Quran,
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…………………………………………But if the
Mohammedans interpret it differently, we should like to
know what its plain meaning is.”
Now since you consider this translation to be correct and
considering the fact that the muslims use this verse to
start all jobs [including evil ones] ==>the QUESTION OF
RISHI DAYANAND ON THE QURAN STANDS TILL QAYAMAT !!
Further, the 1st mantra of rigved has been translated in 2 ways :
In the 1st way it is a stuti to Agni [one of the names of
parmatma/AUM]. In the 2nd way the glory of agni as a natural
force or energy has been established.
Can we translate the 1st ayat of the quran in the same 2 ways?
How can we compare ved, the gift of Aum with a
man-made book i.e. quran!!
The vedas contain different meanings for the same
word and the quran keeps repeating
the same words and incidents umpteen times as if the
narrator is underconfident of himself.
And all the repetitions have the same meaning.
The mantras in rig and Sam ved etc which are similiar
have different meanings according to the context.
Again who is Agni, the God? Agni is Hota [Provider and Obtainer],
Purohit [provider of benefit from start of srishti],
Ritwik [creator and worshippable in all seasons],
Ratna dhatamam [Retainer of land and riches],
Devta of Yajna
[giver and illuminator of things].
Who is Agni the fire ? It is this agni which runs our engines,
our bodies, our kitchens, our plant life, our hydrologic
Is Agni equivalent to Allah? NO!! Why ?? Because Allah is
undefined yet. Muslims are themselves divided into 73 sects.
Whose concept should we believe to be correct??
Thus the muslims need to ponder upon the words of Rishi
Dayanand to come closer to the truth i.e. the Vedas.
Note=The translation of rigved 1st mantra in english
provided by Naseeruddeen needs corrections to bring it in line
with the translation of Rishi Dayanand and is also incomplete.
Now I would like to mention that the quran had many different versions:
To know whether the Quran you are reading is Hafs or Warsh, there is a simple test:Look at the first Chapter/Sura of the Quran. If you see that the ‘Basmallah’ (the opening of the chapter which reads: ‘In the name of God, the Almighty, the Most Merciful’) has a number ascribed after it (the number 1), then you have the ‘Hafs’ version…If there is no number and it is treated like the other 112 Basmallahs, then you have the Warsh version.
U might ask ” How does it Matter”? This is how:
Verse counts for Hafs are 6236, while Warsh records 6214 (other versions record 6616, 6217, 6204, and 62262).
Then one should ask mulla Naseeruddeen, ” How many verses exist in the quran?”
