Holy Nar'uq (The Reversed Qur'an)
Notable Verses

  • Muslims are deaf, dumb and blind, they are like stray animals.
  • They are like donkeys, dogs, and despised apes.
  • No, they are the vilest of animals.
  • Muslims are the worst of beasts.

Do you think these descriptions are shocking? Unacceptable? Respectless? Discriminating?
Do you think this is despicable Ku Klux Klan talk? Hatemongering?
Do you think this is sickening Nazi babble?
Do you think these texts are supremacist, maybe even fascistoid, but in any case deeply offensive?

Hopefully your answers to all of the above is a sincere 'Yes'. We truly hope that any compassionate, rational thinking person finds these descriptions totally disgusting, because a whole segment of the human population is being portrayed here as some sort of 'untermensch'.

However, there is one problem. The texts above are almost directly quoted from a so called divine book. 'Almost' we say, because in this divine book these descriptions are not referring to Muslims. In this so-called divine book, these offensive words are being used to describe Non-Muslims.

No doubt you have guessed by now that this divine book is the Qur'an. The above 'Islamophobic' statements were inspired by the following Qur'anic verses:

The likeness of those who disbelieve is as the likeness of one who shouts to that which hears nothing, save a call and a cry; deaf, dumb, blind -- they do not understand.
Or thinkest thou that most of them listen or understand? They are only like cattle; - nay, they are worse astray in Path.
The similitude of those who were charged with the (obligations of the) Mosaic Law, but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is that of a donkey which carries huge tomes (but understands them not). Evil is the similitude of people who falsify the Signs of God: and God guides not people who do wrong.
If it had been Our will, We should have elevated him with Our signs; but he inclined to the earth, and followed his own vain desires. His similitude is that of a dog: if you attack him, he lolls out his tongue, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls out his tongue. That is the similitude of those who reject Our signs; So relate the story; perchance they may reflect.
And well ye knew those amongst you who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath: We said to them: "Be ye apes, despised and rejected."
When in their insolence they transgressed (all) prohibitions, We said to them: "Be ye apes, despised and rejected."
For the vilest beasts in God's sight, are the deaf, the dumb, who understand not.
For the worst of beasts in the sight of God are those who reject Him: They will not believe.
Verily those who believe not, among those who have received the scriptures, and among the idolaters, [shall be cast] into the fire of hell, to remain therein [for ever]. These are the worst of creatures.

This hatred and contempt for others is from the book that is venerated by all Muslims as the holy of holies, the book that they consider the Absolute Truth - raised above all human laws and opinions. It is the verbatim and everlasting words of Allah.

Muslims who demand that non-Muslims respect their religion and their beliefs, who get angry when the teachings of Islam are criticized, who decry perceived insults, 'discrimination' and 'Islamophobia' against them; It is them who just do not want to accept that it is the Qur'an, thus their religion, that is insulting, discriminating and shows a staggering phobia. It is a deeply rooted, offensive and supremacist phobia for non-Muslims, and it has been affecting the course of history for the last 1400 years.

In the following chapters you will read this venom against non-Muslims and their beliefs as it would be if aimed at Muslims themselves. Words such as 'disbelievers', 'Christians', 'Jews', 'polytheists', or 'they' and 'them' when directed towards these disbelievers will be replaced by 'Muslims' and 'followers of Islam'. Certain concepts such as the Trinity which is attacked in the Qur'an will be 'reversed' so that it attacks the Muslim doctrine of Tawhid, and so on.

There are also certain instances when it is the 'evil doers' who are being attacked, but when these verses are read in context with the surrounding verses, it becomes clear that one of the 'evils' is not accepting Islam. So these verse will naturally be included in our 'reversal'.

We have dubbed the resulting texts, the “Holy Nar'uq”. And surely something that is classed as 'holy' can never be accused of being fascist hate literature...or can it?
