Dear Ali Sina,
I have created havoc in my area against Islam, and disturbed their mind a lot. But I don’t have the answers for few of the questions Muslims raise. I would be very thankful to you please answer them.
If Mohammed was a fake, then what he used to do in cave Hira?
Muhammad was a narcissist. As such he was uncomfortable to interact with others as equal. Narcissists can only interact with others as superior, when they are venerated, obeyed and respected. That is why they always try to create a cult. If they fail to create a cult, they retreat from the society and become loners. As the Sira tells us, after Muhammad formed his cult and was able to gather his narcissistic supply from his votaries, he stopped going to the cave.
The Unabomber was very smart man – a child prodigy, who was accepted into Harvard University at the age of 16, where he earned an undergraduate degree, and later earned a PhD in mathematics. But as a narcissist who could not create a cult he lived in a hut away from the society. He took his vengeance from other intellectuals by sending them bombs. He was a loner not because he loved contemplation, but because he was unable to interact with others as equal. The reason Muhammad spent his time in a cave was the same.
If Mohammed was a looter, why he did not leave any property behind him? When he died there was nothing precious found in his house?
Muhammad left a huge amount of wealth behind. Where do you think the entire wealth of the Bani Nadir and Fadak went? It all went to him. In addition 20% of all the loot became his personal property. Tabari counts the wealth of Muhammad after his death. He had several slaves and hundreds of camels. A hadith tells us that in one occasion Aisha manumitted 40 of her slaves as expiation for breaching an oath. How many slaves she had to afford manumitting 40 in one day? Aisha was only one of Muhammad several wives and all his wives received equal share from the spoils of wars.
The Shiite/ Sunni divide was caused over Fadak, a town Muhammad took as his personal property after he raided Khaybar. When he died, his daughter Fatima claimed the town is her inheritance and should be given to her. Abu Bakr objected and said everything Muhammad owned belongs to Baitulmal (public treasury). This created a rift between Ali, Fatima’s husband and Abu Bakr that caused many wars and bloodshed and divided Islam in two sects.
The claim that nothing was found in Muhammad house is ridiculous. First of all he had nine houses, one for each of his wives and he had also a garden with a house in it outside Medina where Mariyah, his Coptic sex slave lived, away from his wives. He had hundreds of camels, horses and a lot of equipment of war and tremendous amount of money that he had looted in his 78 raids.
Why he kept quiet for first two years about his revelation, if he was an imposter?
The question should be why he kept quiet about his revelation if he was not an imposter. If he was sent from God he should have told everyone. But he told only to a few close ones to test the waters and only came out when he felt safe and secure.
Why there are so many spiritual saints or Wali under the banner of Islam who practiced Islam’s Kalima’s and verses form Quran?
There are no spiritual saints in Islam. These people Muslims call saint are a bunch of charlatans. I cannot show you the dead ones, but I can show you the ones that are living, Watch this video and see the veneration Muslims show to this man. His name is Maulana Ajmal Qadri. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P19OfllEj_c
Now read the debate I had with him.
Does he sound like a saint? The greatest saint of Islam was Rumi and he too was an ignoramus. He was a great poet, but not an enlightened one. I wrote about him here.
There are some good people among Muslims, but they are ordinary people who don’t know much about Islam. They are good because they follow their conscience and not Islam. No person can follow Muhammad and remain a good person. It is not possible. True Muslims are evil and they become more demonic the more they follow Muhammad.
Why Mohammed used to wear torn and old clothes, used to put on his own shoes with his own hands in spite of slaves, if he was a narcissist?
It is funny that Muslims contradict themselves so easily without even noticing. In the same sentence they that claim Muhammad was poor and wore torn and old cloths and also admit that he had several slaves. How can a poor person own several slaves? Muslims are incapable of thinking about simple things like this.
Anyway, Muhammad was poor when he came to Medina. He had wasted the wealth of Khadijah and had become penny-less again. The stories about his poverty are about this period. Later he started raiding and looting and became the wealthiest man in Arabia.
Muhammad was not a modest man but as a narcissist he made a show of it. Narcissists project an image of holiness and like to be perceived as holy, detached and other worldly people. This is the mask they wear. They live behind this false self.
Why he was a so humble with everyone even with his slaves?
This is a lie. Muhammad was never humble to anyone. He made a show of it but in reality he expected everyone to love him and prefer his life to their own. He considered himself superior to all mankind and there are hadiths that show this. In one hadith he claimed when he was a child two men dressed in white came and opened his chest and pulled out his heart and opened it and from it they throw away a clogged blood and then washed it and put it back and sew him up. Then they weighed him against 100 people and he was heavier. Then they weighed him against 1000 people and he was still heavier. Then one of the men said to the other, leave him because if you weigh him against all mankind he will be still heavier.
I don’t want to talk about the ridiculousness of this story. It however shows he really thought of himself to be superior to everyone. That is not what humility looks like.
Why so many people get illumination and wisdom for reading Quran, in spite of showing the evils in the Quran and Islam, they still say they got illumination from it?
People can think they get enlightened, but in reality they are not. Those who convert to Islam and then leave it admit that they had been fooled without knowing it.
Where are the enlightened Muslims? I have debated with thousands of them and have exposed their ignorance. If Muslims become enlightened they should be able to make us see that light. Why can’t they? Their enlightenment is all subjective. Once tested with reason it becomes clear what they call enlightenment is nothing but ignorance and self-deception.
If Sufism also not true or pure spirituality, then why there were so many great wali and enlightened people, who even do miracles in living and even after their death, people get help from them (Tomb & Relics)?
I already answered this question. There are no miracles in Islam and in any religion. Those who claim performing miracles are charlatans. They trick people with cheap magic. Magicians are honest artists. They tell you from the outset that what you see is not real. But these impostor religious conmen lie to you and say it is miracle. Anytime you hear someone has performed a miracle know that that person is an impostor.
When Muhammad was asked to perform amiracle he said he can’t do it and the only miracle he is given is the Quran. If Muhammad could not perform miracles how can his followers perform it? Miracles are a lie. As Einstein used to say, the greatest miracle is that there are no miracles and that the universe is governed by predictable laws.
Still from some Quranic verses people get cured some troubles are solved and evil spirits are warded off( I know faith helps, faith does everything but why evil spirits from house or buildings are removed from Quranic verses… though it sounds silly to atheists, I myself is an atheist but…….)
Evil spirits don’t exist. Evil people do and Muhammad and many of his followers are among them. But faith heals. If you believe in something strongly you get result. You can pray to a chair and if you really believe the chair can cure you, you get the result. This is a known fact. It is being used as standard procedure to test the efficacy of a new drug. New drugs are tested against placebo. The reason is that a lot of healing take place as the result of one’s expectation of getting better. Let us say 25% of people get cured simply by expecting to get cured. People who trust their doctors will get better even if the doctor gives them a sugarcoated starch tablet. If a drug then cures only 25% of patients, that drug is considered to have zero effect. If it cures 75% of the patients it is said that the drug is 50% efficient.
Everyone knows Khomeini was a truly evil man. But those who believe in that monster and pray in his mausoleum get cured. Khomeini must be in hell but the faith of his followers in him heal them from their diseases.
It is the faith that heals not the healer.
