Stoning Verse or Ayat al Rajm
Muslims relentlessly and willfully deceive humanity by asserting that the Quran that they have today is EXACTLY the same as that allegedly revealed to Muhammad 1400 years ago.
How accurate are these statements and are they borne by the records of Muhammadan Islam?
We shall as usual investigate the veracity or lack thereof these assertions based once again and as usual, only on the Muslim sources.
It is very unfortunate but essential, that we repeat the same statements again and again and again that invariably, Muslims, INVENT and CONCOCT unsubstantiated stories about Muhammad and his Quran thus requiring them to create more lies to cover the earlier ones especially since their falsehoods contradict the very exegetical Muslim sources, in the Arabic language, that PROVE otherwise in the Hadiths (traditions about Muhammad).
In our series of unchallenged articles, we may touch upon many similar subjects under different headings because they overlap and it gives our readers different facets of our extremely detailed research.
The Stoning Verse is called in Arabic, Ayat al Rajm
Hadith Muslim maintains that key passages were missing from Zaid bin Thabit’s collection of the Quran. The most famous is the verse of stoning.
All the major traditions speak of this missing verse. According to Ibn Ishaq’s version (p. 684) we read:
“Allah sent Muhammad, and sent down the scripture to him. Part of what he sent down was the passage on stoning.
Umar ibn al Khattab asserts, ‘We read it, we were taught it, and we heeded it. The apostle [Muhammad] stoned, and we stoned after him. I fear that in the time to come men will say that they find no mention of stoning in Allah’s book, and thereby go astray in neglecting an ordinance which Allah has sent down.
Verily, stoning in the book of Allah is a penalty laid on married men and women who commit adultery.”
Therefore, according to Umar [ibn al Khattab] – one of the closest companions of Muhammad and the second Khalifa of Islam – the stoning verse was part of the original Quran, the revelation which Quran. In many of the Allah allegedly sent down. But now it is missing from the traditions we find numerous reports of adulterous men and women who were stoned by Muhammad and his companions.
Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith 1944 Narrated by Aisha
‘The verse of stoning and of suckling an adult ten times was revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept under my pillow. When the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) expired and we were occupied by his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper.’
*** It is obvious that Allah was not able to protect his alleged revelations from a goat ***
Yet we read in today’s Quran:
Al Nur 24:2 “The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication flog each of them with a hundred lashes: let not compassion move you in their case in a matter prescribed by Allah if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment
*** Umar said, adultery was not only a capital offence, but one which demanded stoning.
This verse is missing from Uthman’s Quran, and that is why Umar raised this issue.
Believers/ Muslims need to ask themselves whether indeed their Quran can be claimed to be the same as that passed down by Muhammad to his companions?
With evidence such as this here addressed – as well as of hundreds of other discrepancies – the Quran in our possession today becomes all the more suspect ***
Sahih Muslim Hadith 4191 Narrated by Ubadah ibn as-Samit
Allah’s Messenger said: When an unmarried male commits adultery with an unmarried female (they should receive) one hundred lashes and banishment for one year. And in case of married male committing adultery with a married female, they shall receive one hundred lashes and be stoned to death.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 4214 Narrated by Al-Bara’ ibn Azib
There happened to pass by Allah’s Apostle a Jew blackened and lashed. Allah’s Apostle called them (the Jews) and said: Is this the punishment that you find in your Book (Torah) as a prescribed punishment for adultery? They said: Yes. He called one of the scholars amongst them and said: I ask you in the name of Allah Who sent down the Torah to Moses if that is the prescribed punishment for adultery, which you find in your Book.
He said: Had you not asked me in the name of Allah, I should not have given you this information. We find stoning to death (as the punishment prescribed in the Torah). However, this (crime) became quite common … so we decided to blacken the face with coal and flog as a substitute punishment for stoning. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger said: O Allah, I am the first to revive Thy command when they had cancelled it. He then gave the order and he (the offender) was stoned to death.
Al-Muwatta Hadith 41.1 Stoning
Malik related to me from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar said, “The Jews came to the Messenger of Allah and mentioned to him that a man and woman from among them had committed adultery. … So the Messenger of Allah gave the order and they were stoned”
Abdullah ibn Umar added, “I saw the man leaning over the woman to protect her from the stones.”
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4443 Narrated by An-Nu’man ibn Bashir
Habib ibn Salim said: A man called AbdurRahman ibn Hunayn had intercourse with his wife’s slave-girl. The matter was brought to an-Nu’man ibn Bashir who was the Governor of Kufah. He said: I shall decide between you in accordance with the decision of the Apostle of Allah If she made her lawful for you, I shall flog you one hundred lashes. If she did not make her lawful for you, I shall stone you to death. So they found that she had made her lawful for him. He, therefore, flogged him one hundred lashes.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 5.188 Narrated by Amr bin Maimun
During the pre-Islamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.
Believers/ Muslims and Unbelievers/ Kuffar/ Infidels, this Hadith is a real gem, and we cannot understand how Bukhari actually included it among the SAHIH (Truthful) traditions:
Even the MONKIES had knowledge of the Stoning Verse BEFORE Muhammad’s Quran and applied it amongst themselves.
They must have obviously learned about it from a Divine revelation similar to the ones that were descended upon Muhammad.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith8.804 Narrated by Ash Shaibani
I asked ‘Abdullah bin Abi Aufa, -Did Allah’s Apostle carry out the Rajam penalty (i.e., stoning to death)?” He said, “Yes.” I said, “Before the revelation of Surat-ar-Nur or after it?” He replied, “I don’t know.”
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.806 Narrated by Abu Huraira
A man came to Allah’s Apostle while he was in the mosque, and he called him, saying, “O Allah’s Apostle! I have committed illegal sexual intercourse.” The Prophet turned his face to the other side, but that man repeated his statement four times, and after he bore witness against himself four times, the Prophet called him, saying, “Are you mad?” The man said, “No.”
The Prophet said, “Are you married?” The man said, “Yes.” Then the Prophet said, “Take him away and stone him to death.” Jabir bin ‘Abdullah said: I was among the ones who participated in stoning him and we stoned him at the Musalla. When the stones troubled him, he fled, but we over took him at Al-Harra and stoned him to death.
*** All the above reports and many, many more, indicate that there was the verse of RAJM as part of the Quran but is NOT in the Uthmanic and current Qurans.
The most extraordinary fact is that it is Umar ibn al Khattab, one of the most intimate of Muhammad’s companions and also the Second Khalifa of ‘Islam’ who is asserting that the Stoning Verse existed and does NOT exist in Uthman’s Quran.
Any intelligent and independently inquiring mind would raise the following points:
Why is the STONING VERSE missing from Uthman’s Quran?
Umar is not the ONLY one asserting the previous existence of this verse.
We have also shown that hundreds of other verses are missing from Uthman’s edited version of the Quran!
Ladies and Gentlemen, as we have repeatedly demonstrated, based entirely upon the Muslim records themselves, that many others attest to Umar’s assertion that Muhammad stoned those who committed adultery without any basis in the Quran.
Furthermore, how many other verses are missing because the huffath/ memorizers who heard them from Muhammad died in the ‘Muslim’ internecine slaughters after his death and hence are not included in the collection of the Quran?
How can even a single revelation from Allah be missing from the Quran? If Allah is the same as the God of Israel and Jesus?
Why does the Sunna over-rule the Quran?
Once again for the 100th time and beyond a shadow or even a reasonable doubt we have utterly discredited Muhammad as a prophet and the alleged divine origin of his Quran.
Can any follower of Muhammad explain these incredibly disturbing facts, in a rational manner?
We have absolutely no doubt that no one can.
