Now let us read Surat al-Isra' 110 one more time:

ادْعُوا اللَّهَ أَوِ ادْعُوا الرَّحْمَٰنَ ۖ أَيًّا مَّا تَدْعُوا فَلَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ

Or: Invoke/call/pray to Allah OR invoke/call pray to al-Rahman

Next? Are you ready?: Whatever (either Allah or al-Rahman) you invoke/pray/call to him (Allah or al-Rahman) belongs the beautiful names

Now you can see why the smart Meccan pagans told Muhammad that he has not one but two gods.

As usual Gabriel and al-Mufasereen come to the rescue and and we are told that Allah has "beautiful names"! How many? 99 names and Muhammad has, and you guessed it, 99 names oh and the "blame Rahman al-Yamama or Musaylama the liar" fable.

Check this:


And here are the 99 names of Muhammad


Do you see a pattern here?

So you can see that Gabriel and al-Mufasereen were busy with "Tabrir" or making things up.

More disasters?

al-Basmala or Bism Allah al-Rahman al-Rahim is not included in the early fragments of the Qur'an and was added later on.

Why is this important? Muhammad never mentioned the name al-Rahman until Surat al-Isra' 110 was revealed. More? Surat al-Rahman is Sura number 55. However, it is number 97 in "Revelation order" or it was revealed very late and it is a Medina Sura or may be Meccan and only Allahu A'lam


This is why Muhammad had no like for the Meccan pagans because they kept telling him that what he is telling them does not make sense and it is no more than Asateer al-Awaleen or the The Fables of the Ancients.
