Our dear Wasim who tells us that he worships an Arabian warlord and caravan raider who killed 950 Jews and is responsible through his teaching for the murder of millions of our dear Wasim Hindu ancestors right our dear Wasim?

Muhammad was the inventor of La Ilaha Illallah.

Not really the one that invented monotheism must be King Akhenaten of Egypt some 2000 years before your so called prophet

http://www.ancientegyptonline.co.uk/akhenaten.html

But it was the Jews that proclaimed that they have one single God as follows and this is from an old post of mine

If we read Deuteronomy 6:4-9 we will find the שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל‎ or Sh'ma yisrael which in Arabic would be اسمع ياأسراءيل or Isma3 ya Israel or Listen O Israel and here is the verse in Hebrew שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יהוה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יהוה אֶחָד : Which can be transliterated as Sh'ma Yis'ra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad.

And translated as:

Hear, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.

And this is the source of Q112:1 as Muhammad was not an original thinker or theologian

Oh more?

Now let us see where it came from: It must be the Syriac form of the Sh'ma which one would find in the New Testament Mark 12:29 ܐܳܡܰܪ ܠܶܗ ܝܶܫܽܘܥ ܩܰܕ݂ܡܳܝ ܡܶܢ ܟ݁ܽܠܗܽܘܢ ܦ݁ܽܘܩܕ݁ܳܢܶܐ ܫܡܰܥ ܐܺܝܣܪܳܝܶܠ ܡܳܪܝܳܐ ܐܰܠܳܗܰܢ ܡܳܪܝܳܐ ܚܰܕ݂ ܗ݈ܽܘ

And this is the transliteration of the Sh'ma in the Syriac NT:

Sh'ma Israel, MarYah Alahan, MarYah Khad Hu

And for those of you that know Arabic you will be able to know what it says and it is

Hear Israel the Lord our God (this is from the Syriac word Alaha which the Arabic word Allah is a loan word) the Lord is One

Compare this with the confused and poor grammar of Q112:1

Now let us go back to the Quranic 112:1 and 2 and this is what it says قل هو الله احد الله الصمد and the masorites had no clue if this is one or two verses as in Q112:1 would be قل هو الله احد and Q112:2 would be الله الصمد and this is what we have in the Qur'an now but we have many problems here: The meaning of the word al-samad no one has a clue about what it means and in Q112:1 the grammar is very clumsy as all one would need in classical Arabic is an introductory clause as in Qul or say followed by Allahu Ahad (sic) or subject followed by the predicate or those of you that know Arabic garmmar المبتدأ والخبر but notice that the we also have the word HU or he or هو which is clumsy Arabic but it is there because the source of Q112:1 must be the Syriac Sh'ma where one finds the Syriac HU or he as you can see above1

But the real disaster here is that monotheism does not make sense and it can be proven to be flawed by very basic Aristotelian logic and this also made it to al-Tabari's exegesis of Q112:1

So here is the question that was posed by the very smart Jews and the pagans of Mecca to your so called prophet ; If Allah created this creation then who created Allah?

See what I told you an argument based on a blatant lie is no more than another blatant lie

So you tell us are you going to be creating a new religion in India where Akhenaten will be your subject of worship?

And do you see why I hope that your followers are reading your nonsense and realizing that you do not make sense and all your ideas are based on blatant lies
