Muhammad & his Satanic Verses
Although we have proven beyond a shadow or even a reasonable doubt the following:
a) Islam does not mean Peace but SUBMISSION
b) Allah is most definitely NOT the same as the God of the Bible
c) Islam is NOT a religion but a CULT; the Cult of Muhammad
d) Muhammad was NOT a prophet but a charlatan and the murderous leader of the first Organized Crime Syndicate in history
e) Jihad is NOT a spiritual struggle but Eternal & Mortal war against Infidels/ Kuffar/ Non Muslims
We shall buttress our unimaginably controversial conclusions and articles by continuing our series of revelations regarding the TRUTH about Muhammad, Muslims and Islam, as we are addressing the FACTS (not the false propaganda) about how Muhammad and his followers truly perceive 80% of humanity called Kuffar/Infidels based entirely upon their ungodly scripture.
About thirty years ago, the world was awash with reports about Salman Rushdie’s book the’ Satanic Verses’ for which he received the usual Muhammadan Muslim response to any criticism and or investigation of Muhammadan Islam, a Fatwa (a religious decision) to have him ASSASSINATED for telling the TRUTH although in a fictitious story.
Was there and is there a record of these verses in Islamic scripture?
Muhammadan Islam, basing its Monotheism on that of the Israelites and their Torah, strongly opposes idolatry, polytheism and or associating anything or anyone with Allah (the name of the god of Muslims).
This contrasts sharply with the disagreement by Muhammad’s pagan Arab contemporaries who believed that their supreme rock god Allah had associates.
These associates are mentioned in the Quran, who are three female deities: al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat who were, according to the religious beliefs of the pagan Arabs, the DAUGHTERS of Allah, the supreme deity of the Kaba. Each had a shrine in separate places not far from Mecca in Arabia, where Muhammad was born and began his mission.
Although the Quran, in its present form, obviously rejects these deities, Arab and Islamic histories affirm otherwise.
The Islamic records assert that Muhammad actually spoke Satan’s words as if they were the words of Allah. This event is documented by several early Muhammadan scholars and is referenced in the Hadith and the Quran.
Later Muhammadan scholars, ashamed and embarrassed that their self-declared prophet spoke Satan’s words, denied the event occurred. A myriad of excuses and contorted stories have been put forth by these later scholars to cover up Muhammad’s sinful error.
It must be very clearly pointed out, that the “Satanic Verses” event is not something made up by non-Muslims.
The event is recorded by the earliest Islamic sources available reporting on Muhammad’s life. No one should think that it is a story made up by people who are critical of ‘Islam’. On the contrary it is an episode directly found in the early Islamic records.
This subject is one of the most controversial in Muhammadan Islam because, allegedly, Satan was able to deceive Muhammad and thus insinuate himself in the Quran by causing Muhammad to recite his words as if they were Allah’s words.
Muslims always use the mantra “bring forth the proof”. Well, the proof is as follows:
This event is actually documented by the four early biographical writers of Muhammad’s life:
First and foremost by Ibn Ishaq’s monumental “Sirat Rasulallah” / “The Life of Muhammad” p.165 ; al Waqidi’s “Kitab al Maghazi”, Ibn Sa’d’s “Kitab al-Tabaqat al-Kabir” and Tabari’s “History”
It is ironic and duplicitous but understandable that the very ‘scholars’ of Islam who refute the authenticity of the Satanic Verses by Ibn Ishaq (p:165) are the very same who accept without challenge his story about the alleged “Night Journey” (P: 181) as the foundation for the Muslim claim to Jerusalem.
The Hadith and Quran also contain direct references. Additionally, several other Islamic scholars on Hadith (traditions) support the event’s occurrence such as:
Ibn Abi Hatim, Ibn al-Mundhir, Ibn Mardauyah, Musa ibn ‘Uqba, and Abu Ma’shar.
It is all the stranger that Ibn Hajar, a recognized authority on traditions, insists on the truth of this report and says:
“As we have mentioned above, three of its chains of narrators satisfy the conditions requisite for an authentic report.”

Tabari VI.107 : Satan casts a false revelation on the messenger of Allah’s tongue~
‘The messenger of Allah was eager for the welfare of his people and wished to effect a reconciliation with them in whatever ways he could. He longed in his soul that something would come to him from Allah which would reconcile him with his tribe.
With his love for his tribe and his eagerness for their welfare it would have delighted him if some of the difficulties which they made for him could have been smoothed out, and he debated with himself and fervently desired such an outcome. Then Allah revealed:
Al Najm 53:19 “ Have ye thought upon al-Lat and al-Uzza
53:20 And Manat, the third, the other?
At this very moment, Satan allegedly cast on his tongue, because of his inner debates and what he desired to bring to his people, the words:
53:21 These are the exalted cranes [Gharaniq] (intermediaries)
53:22 Whose intercession is to be hoped for”
When the pagan Quraysh heard this, they rejoiced and were happy and delighted at the way in which Muhammad spoke of their gods, and they listened to him, while the Muslims, having complete trust in their prophet in respect of the messages which he brought from Allah, did not suspect him of error, illusion, or mistake.
When he came to the prostration, having completed the surah, he prostrated himself and the Muslims did likewise, following their prophet, trusting in the message which he had brought and following his example.
Those polytheists of the Quraysh and others who were in the mosque likewise prostrated themselves because of the reference to their gods which they had heard, so that there was no one in the mosque, believer or unbeliever, who did not prostrate himself.
The Quraysh left delighted by the mention of their gods which they had heard, saying, “Muhammad has mentioned our gods in the most favorable way possible, stating in his recitation that they are the high flying cranes [Gharaniq] and that their intercession is received with approval.”
*** It is extremely important to point out here and now, that Muhammad and his Muslim followers were prostrating themselves and praying in a purely pagan mosque (the Kaaba) a House of Idolatry, since they were surrounded by the rock gods of the Quraysh.
Muhammad should not have done so at all as an alleged Monotheist.
This only shows that he was always willing to compromise his beliefs until such time as he could overcome or destroy all those who did not believe as he did, as in fact he eventually achieved ***
Then Gabriel came to the Messenger of Allah and said,
“Muhammad, what have you done? You have recited to the people that which I did not bring to you from Allah, and you have said that which was not said to you.”
Then the messenger of Allah was much grieved and feared Allah greatly, but Allah sent down a revelation to him, for He was merciful to him, consoling him and making the matter light for him, informing him that there had never been a prophet or a messenger before him who desired as he desired and wished as he wished but that Satan had cast words into his recitation, as he had cast words on Muhammad’s tongue.
Then Allah cancelled what Satan had thus cast, and established his verses by telling him that he was like other prophets and messengers, and replaced the offending Satanic Verses with:
Al Najm 53:21 “What! for you the male sex and for Him the female?
22 Behold such would be indeed a division most unfair!
The questions that any inquisitive mind should ask are:
Why was Allah in all of the Quran and Hadith so responsive with such incredible alacrity, friendship and mercy whenever and wherever Muhammad needed a ‘revelation’?
How many other verses in the Quran were actually revealed to Muhammad by SATAN and Not Gabriel?
The Satanic verses also destroy another challenge in the Quran:
Bani Israil 17:88 Say: “If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather together to produce the like of this Qur’an they could not produce the like thereof even if they backed up each other with help and support.
*** Ladies and Gentlemen, it is clear from all the above that in desperation, and in a moment of weakness, Muhammad was willing to compromise his Monotheism by conceding to allow the daughters of Allah (the supreme god of pagan Arabia) to remain as intercessors in his ‘Islam’; that is, he was willing to allow three other associates with Allah.
Muhammad actually SINNED and all the excuses that we read and all the asinine explanations by his followers are used to hide a very simple fact:
Muhammad Kafara/ Disbelieved because he associated other gods with Allah.
When he realized the enormity of what he had done, he repented and to rectify his error he first accused the innocent Satan of having tricked him and then ‘revealed’ the very conveniently descended abrogating verses followed by others in which, Allah only admonished him and made light banter of his enormous sin.
Neither Satan, Gabriel nor Allah were involved; it was all Muhammad at his very best; the ventriloquist projecting his thoughts as ‘revelations’ into the unsuspecting mouths of Allah, Gabriel and Satan.
Deceitful, wily, beguiling and very much in control of his mostly very superstitious, ignorant, fearful, illiterate and totally obedient Arabian flock.
