Oh the disaster of the day?

Allah tells us in al-Fatiha that there is a group of people that he الذين انعمت عليهم or those that he favored

So let us see who are these people that Allah favored than all others

Now we turn to Q2:47 and let us read it together

يبني اسراء يل اذكروا نعمتي التي انعمت عليكم

Or O Children of israel remember my favor that i favored you

What a disaster the Jews must be the group of people that Allah favored than others more so when he says in the same aya

واني فضلتكم على العالمين

Or and i favored you over the (other) peoples

Oh let us go back to surat al-Fatiha where it says

رب العلمين

Oh darn ir let me fix this poor spelling

رب العالمين

Or the God of the peoples (and no it is not the worlds) as the peoples here are three groups

1. الذين انعمت عليهم or those that Allah favored and they must be the Jews as per Q2:47

2. المغضوب عليهم or those that Allah is angry with and stay tuned for this one

3. الضالين or those that are misguided or were led astray and for this one stay tuned

And 1, 2, 3 are what Allah calls al-3alameen

So congratulations our dear Amin but the group that Allah favors in surat al-Fatiha are the Jews!

More evidence? let us turn to Q2:40 where it says

يبني اسراء يل اذكروا نعمتي التي انعمت عليكم

Oh darn it Allah is repeating himself so I must conclude that the Jews are really his favorite people

So you tell us our dear Amin why is Allah in the habit of repeating himself?

Let me help you this is how yout master Sheikh al-Azhar answers this disaster of Allah repeating himself often and here is his answer if you can read Arabic

http://www.elazhar.com/qadaiaux/8.asp

For the readers: the above Q2:40 and Q2:47 is another example of the Quranic puzzle of why does Allah seem to repeat himself in very different literary forms and this phenomenon is called by John Wansbrough "variant traditions" and what it really means is that the Qur'an has multiple authors and that those that put the Qur'an in the way we have it just stitched these literary sources together with no editing and this is why we have a such strange phenomenon.
