Allah, Gracious, Merciful.
1When the sun is folded up;
2And when the stars fall losing their luster;
3And when the mountains vanish;
4And when the she camels, ten months with young are left
5And when the wild beasts are herded together;
6And when the oceans boil over with a swell;
7And when the souls are sorted out;
8When the female buried alive is questioned.
9For what crime she was killed;
10And when the scrolls are laid open;
11And when the world on high is unveiled:
12And when the blazing fire is kindled to fierce heat;
13And when the garden is brought near.

pre-Islamic Arabia, girl daughters were killed at the birth while saving all
boy children. Sin and the vanity of man’s heart has no limits with
jurisdiction, it will affect mankind everywhere without hindrance. The Word of God gives us new birth and

16Go straight or hide;
17And the night as it dissipates.
18And the dawn as it breathes away the darkness.
19Verily, this is the word of a most honorable messenger.
20Endued with power and rank before the Lord of the throne.
21With authority there faithful of his trust.
22And your companion is not one possessed;
23And without doubt he saw him in the clear horizon.
24And neither does he withhold grudgingly a knowledge of the

2. How close
was Muhammad to the angel he saw? The confusion between the Holy Spirit and
the angel Gabriel may have come as a result of how close Muhammad was when
he saw the entity. One’s view on a clear day on the desert may go as far as
up to 50 miles or more. In this case without a telescope objects may not be
as clear to the viewer as he would think. Did Muhammad see the angel
Gabriel, is the angel Gabriel the Holy Spirit, or Muhammad is the Holy
Spirit as claimed for him Muslim scholars who equate the Comforter with
3. Now this is interesting. When I am
approached by a person of another tribe (erroneously called race), and
without provocation this person says to me “I am not racist (in other words
tribalistic), that to me is a dead giveaway. First Allah says, Muhammad saw
the angel in the horizon, which by the way almost killed him with
suffocation (refer to Qur’an 73 and 74), he left the mountain and went home
shivering feverishly with fear, which, to his observers were signs of demon
possession, and Allah says he was not visited by an accursed spirit, when
all signs point that way. His words are not truly representative of history
before his time, quotations from the Bible are misses and a host of other
things. I would say that he was misled alright. If it quarks like a duck,
waddles like a duck, swims like a duck, “bless your heart”, it is a duck.
