So here is your lesson in logic for today straight from the sira our dear Terrence

Well in Ibn Hihsam's redaction of ibn Ishaq's sirat rasul allah we are told on page 572-573 in Arabic a language that our dear Terrence cannot read speak or write that those pesky Jews in Mecca (or is it Madina and only allahu a3lam. Oh darn it Arabic again) posed the following question based on the so called Aristotelian problem (oh the Aristotelian KISS)

"If Allah cearted this creation then who really created Allah?"

So what do you think Muhammad's answer was? Well let me help you: He had no clue what to say and in typical Muslim fashion he lost his temper and then Gabriel came to the rescue as usual and surat al-akhilas was revealed (sic) and if this not another faux pas ( oh darn it French! so is it allowed in this blog our dear Terrence?) in logic and kiss then I have no idea what it is but again this means that Allah and Muhammad and gebriel had no clue and were no match for Aristotle and his logic.

Well those pesky Jews were just not convinced and not impressed about allah and his flawed logic. They asked Muhammad: "But how did he do it? what limb did he use?" Again Muhammad lost his temper and as expected Gabriel came to the resuce and Q39:67 was revealed (sic) "and they have estimated allah falsely for at the reurrection he shall grasp the entire earth and the heavens folded in his hand"!

Amazing but again the Jews left not satisfied even more convinced that Muhammad's Allah cannot be a real God as he has no clue about basic logic

So what did we learn here?

1. Aristotle's KISS made it to the sira

2. ahbar al-yahood those pesky ahbar (oh the Arabic? may be you can ask your Mullah to tell you what it means but let me help you: the Jewish rabbis) knew very well about Aristotle and his logic

3. So next time when you tell Christians that surat al-ikhlas is anti-Trinity then think again as sabab al-nuzul (oh Arabic again!) has nothing to do with the Trinity

4. Allah has hands then the real question becomes with all his creations the poor guy must have carpal tunnel syndrome. He also has a little korsi (throne or chair) he must be a guy then who really crearted him?

Now and you must pardon me: either put up or well you know the rest
