For our dear Hamri and "show me where it (the Qur'an) contradicts itself" I will be glad to do so

My dear hamri your Allah and his prophet Abul Qasim aka Muhammad were not very systematic theologians but my favorite contradition in the Qur'an is the following:
The islamic tradition tells us that muhammad was Sayyid al-Mursaleen (if you do not know Arabic you must consult your ignrant Mullah and i have no patience for you). But if you examine the Qur'an for support to such bogus idea you f will find non.
Let us read Qur'an 2:285 and it says:
La nufarriq bayna ahad min rusulih. Or "we make no division between anyone of his messengers."
Nothing about Abul Qasim being sayyed al-mursaleen
Now let us read Q41:43:
ma yuqal laka ila ma qad qeela lelrusul min qablak
Which makes you wonder, if so so why did Allah send Muhammad in the first place?
Now let us read Q46:9
ma kunt bada3an min al-rusul.
If so why did Allah send Muhammad in the fisrt place?
But wait here are the contradictions to the above:
1. In Q17:55 your allah says:
wa laqd faddalna na3d alnabiyeen 3ala ba3d. Or: We (Allah) have preferred some prophets over others.
Here is a contradiction my dear Hamri and a funny one.
2. Oh there is more that is even more painful to Muslims. It seems that your allah yufadil Jesus more than even Muhammad Now let us read Q2:253
tilka al-rusul fadalna ba3duhum 3ala ba3d minhum min kalama allah wa rafa3a ba3duhum daragat wa atayna 3isa ibn maryam al-bayanat biroh al-qudus
So you see our dear Hamri your allah is contradicting himeslf by now saying that he indeed yufadil some peophets over other and in this case it seems that Allah yufadil Jesus overe other prophets Abul Qasim included.
So much for the no contradictions in the Qur'an! But again you are the victim of poor theology!
