§4 The Quraysh Bargain: The Satanic Verses
The Moon God of the Quraysh Tribe
The fact that the Prophet Mohammad paid obeisance to Pagan Goddesses is a topic that lies rather sensitively among Muslims. So much so that Salman Rushdie’s book, “The Satanic Verses” is banned in Muslim countries and the Ayatollah has had a fatwa placed on Rushdie. But what is this controversy that is so well documented in Islamic Siras and Hadiths? We will have a closer look at Islamic text on this topic.
Tabari VI:106 “The revelation from Allah was coming to the Prophet continuously, commanding and threatening those who showed open hostility to him, and vindicating him against those who opposed him.” And so it would be. Reading the ninety Meccan surahs is like listening to a decade-long argument. They said, “You are a lying, plagiarizing, charlatan, a fraud and a sorcerer. There is surely a motive behind all of this madness.” He said, “I am not a lying madman or a demon possessed sorcerer. And because you have mocked me, I will bring you slaughter.”
At this point, Ibn Ishaq reveals a stunning temptation – one which I have entitled
Ishaq:132-3 “Utba, who was a chief, said while sitting in a Quraysh assembly, ‘Why don’t I go to Muhammad and make some proposals to him? If he accepts, we will give him whatever he wants, and he will leave us in peace.’ They thought it was a good idea, because if they tried to negotiate with him they would no longer be blamed for his actions. So Utba went to the Prophet, who was sitting in the mosque by himself, and said, ‘O my nephew, you are one of us yet you have come to our people with a matter that is dividing the community. You are ridiculing our customs. You have insulted our gods and our religion. You have even declared that our forefathers were infidels. So listen to me and I will make some suggestions, and perhaps you will be able to accept one of them.’ The Apostle agreed. Utba said, ‘If what you want is money, we will gather for you some of our property so that you may be the richest man in town. If you want honor, we will make you a chief so that no one can decide anything apart from you. If you want sovereignty, we will make you king. And if this demonic spirit which has possession of you is such that you cannot get rid of him, we will find a physician for you, and exhaust our means trying to cure you. For often a demonic spirit gets possession of a man, but he can be rid of it.’ The apostle listened patiently.”
Ishaq:134 “‘Muhammad if you don’t accept our offer then ask your Lord to give us the land and water we lack, for we are shut in by these mountains, we have no river, and none live a harder life than we do.” With this they destroyed Muhammad’s stated justification for preaching Islam. The Meccans weren’t gluttonous as Muslims claim. “If you speak the truth, resurrect Qusayy for us for he was a true shaikh, so that we may ask him whether what you say is accurate.” The Quraysh correctly identified the true patriarch of Islam, the founder of the Ka’aba., and the man who invented the scam Muhammad coveted. “If you do this we will believe you and know that God has sent you as an apostle as you claim.'”
Tabari VI:106 “The Quraysh promised Muhammad that they would give him so much wealth that he would become the richest man in Mecca [money], they would give him as many wives as he wanted [sex], and they would submit to his commands [power].” They didn’t bother tempting him with an acknowledgment of his prophetic claims – by agreeing that he really was Allah’s Messenger. The Meccans knew that the prophet gig was just a means to an end.”The Quraysh said, ‘This is what we will give you, Muhammad, so desist from reviling our gods and do not speak evilly of them.’***” This bargain was proposed on the basis of accommodating the Meccan gods. The deal was clear; the stakes were high. Sex, power, and money were being offered in exchange for total capitulation. The oneness of Allah was all that separated Muhammad’s Islamic doctrine from Qusayy’s scam. If the messenger accepted, he was through as a prophet, and Islam was finished as a religion.Tabari VI:107 “‘If you will do so, we offer you something which will be to your advantage and to ours.'” The prophet was evidently intrigued, tantalized perhaps. They held the keys to the Ka’aba and were offering him a founder’s share. This could be good… “‘What is it.’ he asked.
*****They said, ‘If you will worship our gods, Al-Lat and Al-Uzza, for a year, we shall worship your god for a year.” After all, Allah was their god. In fact, Allah was supposed to be the proud (father) of Al-Lat (the female form of Allah) and Al-Uzza.
There is but one explanation for this omission.*** Muhammad was still referring to his god as Ar-Rahman, the deity of the Yemeni Hanifs. Those who codified the Qur’an decades later simply swapped Ar-Rahman’s name out of some of the later Meccan surahs and replaced it with Allah. This change is confirmed by a Hadith contemporaneous to these events: Ishaq:162 “Abu Jahl met the Apostle and said, ‘By Allah, Muhammad, you will either stop cursing our gods or we will curse the god you serve.’ So the Qur’an verse was revealed, ‘Do not insult those [gods] to whom they pray lest they curse God wrongfully through lack of knowledge.’ [Qur’an 6:108] I have been told that the Apostle then refrained from cursing their gods, and began to call them to Allah [rather than Ar-Rahman].” The critical word is: “began.”
***Tabari VI:108/Ishaq:165 “The Messenger saw his tribe turn on him. He was pained to see them shunning the message he had brought from Allah. So he [abandoned both his message and his god because he] longed for something that would reconcile his tribe to him. With his love for his tribe and his anxiety over this it would have delighted him if the obstacle which had made his task so difficult could be removed [so he could accept their generous offer of power, sex, and money].” The only points of contention, thus obstacles to reconciliation, were: Ka’aba custodianship, the number of gods, and the top god’s identity (Allah or Ar-Rahman).”So Muhammad debated with himself and fervently desired such an outcome. Then Allah revealed: ‘By the Star when it sets, your comrade does not err, nor is he deceived; nor does he speak out of his own desire. [In truth, he did all three and was about to prove his guilt.] ***And when he came to the words: ‘Have you thought about Al-Lat, Al-Uzza and Manat.’ Satan, when he was meditating upon it and desiring to bring reconciliation, cast on his tongue, because of his inner longings and what he desired, the words:
******”” ‘These are exalted high-flying cranes (goddesses). Verily their intercession is accepted with approval.” Simply stated, Muhammad said, “I accept the Quraysh Bargain.”But at what cost?
IslamThe Qur’anic recitals had been filled with assertions that there were no intercessors. And four gods were at least three too many for a monotheistic religion. Muhammad had therefore abandoned the central plank of his mission: “There is no ilah but Allah.” was no longer monotheistic. What’s more, the prophet’s grandiose and Messianic claim of being Allah’s intercessor was pummelled, stoned by a trio of rock idols. And that wasn’t the worst of it. Islam’s lone spokesperson had just aligned himself with Satan.””
It’s little wonder the Ayatollah wanted Rushdie’s book burned. It’s little wonder the Qur’an urges Muslims not to pry too deeply into Islam or ask questions. The truth is devastating. ***The Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses confirm that Muhammad was demon possessed and that the Qur’an was “inspired” to advance his personal agenda. These Hadiths prove Islam was a fraud, as counterfeit as a $3 bill. What’s more, the Profitable Prophet Plan has been elevated from highly probable to undeniable.
But the Islamic Hadith was not finished burying its prophet. Tabari VI:108/Ishaq:166 “When the Quraysh heard this, they rejoiced and were delighted at the way in which he spoke of their gods, and they listened to him. While the Muslims, trusting their Prophet in respect to the messages which he brought, did not suspect him of a vain desire or slip. *****When he came to the prostration, having completed the surah, he prostrated himself and the Muslims did likewise, obeying his command and following his example.” Now you know the reason why the world is in such a mess. A demon-possessed man sought to satiate his vain desires, and billions, failing to suspect his fraud, followed his example and obeyed his commands.
If you are a Muslim reading these words, flee this delusion before it’s too late. This despicable man and his demonic spirit are not worthy of your soul.
Tabari VI:108/Ishaq:166 “Those polytheists of the Quraysh and others who were in the mosque likewise prostrated themselves because of the reference to their gods which they had heard, so that there was no one in the mosque, believer or unbeliever, who did not prostrate himself. Then they all dispersed from the mosque.”
***In the context of the Quraysh Bargain, this passage proves that Islam was nothing more than Muhammad’s scheme to take what rightfully belonged to others. It was his personal gateway to money, power, and sex. The Ka’aba Inc. – the religious scam of the patriarch Qusayy – was being cashed in by a covetous and amoral man. The evidence is undeniable. Islam was a plot, not a religion. Allah and Satan were one.
As much as Muslims would love to absolve themselves and their prophet of the Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses by claiming that the Hadiths were “unauthorized,” they are unable. Both history and their cover up render their objections moot. Without the reconciliation that followed the Bargain, there was no way to explain: Tabari VI:109/Ishaq:167 “The news of this prostration reached those of the Messenger’s Companions who were in Abyssinia. The people said, ‘The Quraysh have accepted Islam.’ Some rose up to return. Then angel Gabriel came to the Messenger and said, ‘Muhammad, what have you done?'” While that’s what the Hadith says, the prophet first mentioned Gabriel’s name two years later in Medina. But that’s not to say he didn’t have visitors. A trio of men, Bakr, Umar, and Hamzah, took their prophet to the woodshed – or at least that’s where they would have taken him if Mecca had wood.
Islam’s dark spirit was quoted saying: Ishaq:166 “‘You have recited to the people that which I did not bring to you from Allah, and you have said that which He did not say to you.’ The Messenger was grieved and feared Allah greatly. So Allah [not Gabriel] sent a revelation to him, consoling him and making light of the affair [of worldly bargains and Satanic indulgences]. He informed him that there had never been a prophet or messenger before who desired as he desired and wished as he wished but that Satan had cast words into his recitation, as he had interjected them on Muhammad’s tongue and into his desires.”
To hell with truth – literally. Desperate to save his prophetic mission, Muhammad retreated to familiar ground. He claimed that he was as covetous, immoral, demented and ill-advised as every other prophet. He was just dabbling in a little demonic delusion to satiate his cravings for power, sex, and money. It was no big deal.
Only the Jewish scriptures couldn’t bail him out this time. Neither the Torah nor the Talmud contained devilish tales that could be twisted to salvage his sorry soul – so none were given. There were no names dropped, Biblical or otherwise. Muhammad was on his own. No other prophet had ever “desired and wished as he had desired and wished.”
Ishaq:166 “Then Allah annulled what Satan had cast, and established his verses by telling him that he was like other prophets and messengers.'” Muhammad’s lord revealed: “Every Messenger or Prophet before you recited the message Satan cast into his recitation. Allah abrogates what Satan casts. Then Allah established his verses. Allah is Knower, Wise.” [Qur’an 22:52]One lie has been refuted with another. The 22nd surah would not be revealed for another decade. In fact, it was one of the final Medina surahs. But by reciting it, Muhammad destroyed his only alibi – denial. ***Now that the Qur’an has verified the Satanic Verses, Muslims cannot whisk them under the carpet without impugning Allah’s credibility along with Muhammad’s.Let’s take a quick look at the surah to better understand Muhammad’s mindset. But so as not to compound the prophet’s error and take the passage out of context, I want you to know that the 47th verse of this late surah speaks of Allah’s intended punishment on the Day of Doom. The 48th is about Allah overtaking townships, the 49th speaks of warnings, the 50th forgiveness, and the 51st demeans the inmates of the flaming fire. Somehow that brings us to: Qur’an 22:52 “Never did We send a messenger or a prophet before you, but, when he framed a desire, Satan threw some vanity into his desire: but Allah will cancel anything (vain) that Satan throws in,” A second translation reads: “He recited (the message) Satan proposed. But Allah abolishes that which Satan proposes.” Another claims: “Satan made a suggestion respecting his desire; but Allah annuls that which Satan casts,” And we have: “whose recitations Satan tampered with, yet Allah abrogates what Satan interpolates; and Allah will confirm His Signs/Revelations: for Allah is all-knowing and wise.”
Allah abrogating the Devil aside, the Qur’anic justification for the Satanic Verses ends with this treasure of spiritual inspiration: Qur’an 22:53 “That He may make the suggestions thrown in by Satan, the Devil’s proposals, but a trial and temptation for those in whose hearts is a disease. Verily the wrong-doers are in a schism. And those on whom knowledge has been bestowed may learn that the (Qur’an) is the truth from your Lord, and that they may believe therein, and their hearts may submit lowly before it, for verily Allah is the Guide of those who believe, to the Straight Way.” Muhammad succumbs to temptation, sides with the Devil, and it’s everyone’s fault but his own. His indulgence was convoluted into a trial for the infidels – our schism. Then, after saying that Satan’s proposals often slip into scripture, we are asked to trust the Qur’an, to submit lowly before it. While this is revolting, it is also convicting. Muslims who try to deny the existence of the Satanic Verses must deny the Qur’an, for it clearly acknowledges them.
That leaves Islam in an impossible position. Muslims must either admit that Muhammad was a power-hungry, money-grubbing, sex-crazed charlatan in cahoots with the Devil, or they must deny the validity of the Hadith and Qur’an. One leaves them without a prophet, the other without a god. Either way, they no longer have a religion.
Tabari VI:110 “Thus Allah removed the sorrow from his Messenger, reassured him about that which he had feared, and cancelled the words which Satan had cast on his tongue, that their gods were exalted high-flying cranes (goddesses) whose intercession was accepted with approval. He now revealed, following the mention of ‘Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat.’ the words: ‘are yours the males and his the females? That indeed is an unfair division! They are but names which you and your fathers have given.’ to the words: ‘to whom he wills and accepts.” [Qur’an 53:21]
The Hadith claims that Qur’anic remedy for Muhammad’s Satanic indulgence is in the 53rd surah. Let’s see if Team Islam gets itself out of trouble or if it digs itself in deeper. “The Star” is named after Lucifer. Qur’an 53:1 “I call to witness the Star when it dips [a.k.a., the “Morning Star”]. Your Companion (Muhammad) is neither confused, deceived, nor misled. Nor does he speak out of (his own) desire [unless he is tempted with money, sex, and power]. It is a revelation revealed, He was taught (this Qur’an) by the Supreme Intellect (Gabriel [actually Lucifer]), One free from any defect in body or mind: for he (Gabriel) rose and became stable (in stately form), clear to view. While he was in the highest part of the horizon, then he approached and came closer, then he prostrated. He was at a distance of but two bow-lengths or (even) nearer.” The claim that he bowed is telling. Neither Gabriel nor Lucifer would have bowed to any man so Muhammad is adlibbing here.
Since the Hadith says Gabriel was the source of Qur’anic inspiration, Islam has tumbled into the abyss no matter how this verse is interpreted. Bukhari:V1B1N4-5 “Allah’s Apostle used to listen to Gabriel whenever he came, and after his departure he used to recite the Qur’an as Gabriel had recited it.” “Gabriel used to meet him every night to teach him the Qur’an.” But we have been told that Allah was the “Supreme Intellect,” that he was “Most Wise, All Knowing,” and that he had no partners. Since Allah’s Gabriel would never claim a superior position to Allah, this cannot be Gabriel. So who might it be?
The Satanic Verse goes on to say: Qur’an 53:10 “So He did reveal to His slave whatever He revealed. The (Prophet’s) heart did not falsify what he perceived he saw. Will you then dispute with him about what he saw? For indeed he saw him [him who] at a second descent. [Oops. A “descent” is a journey down.] Near the Lote Tree beyond which none may pass. Near it is the Garden of Abode (the Seventh Haven). [Therefore, Muhammad’s heaven is down, not up.] When that covered the Lote Tree which did cover it. [Say what?] The sight turned not aside, nor did it go wrong! [“At least I perceived I saw him. Why don’t you believe me?”] Indeed he did see of the greater signs of his Lord!” Methinks – no, meknows – he doth protest too much – especially since we are about to enter the realm of the Satanic Verses and pagan gods.
***Qur’an 53:19 “Have you then seen or thought upon Al-Lat and Al-Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs), and considered another, the third (goddess), Manat (of the pagan deities)?” Manat was an afterthought because she was not part of the Quraysh Bargain.
Now, for Allah’s copy-edits: “What! for you sons, the male sex, and for Him, daughters, the female? Are yours the males and His the females? Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair!” Muhammad just jumped from the Devil’s frying pan into the hell fires of sexism and discrimination. He is saying that Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat can’t be Allah’s daughters nor goddesses because they are girls. In plain English: “It would be an injustice for men to have sons and gods to have daughters because women are worthless.” It’s little wonder that the Islamic politicians and clerics who depend on Islam for their status, power, and wealth threaten to kill anyone willing to expose this nonsense.
Qur’an 53:23 “These are nothing but names which you have invented, you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority.” Yes they are names, names given to them by Muhammad’s forefathers – just like Allah’s name.
Projecting one’s flaws onto an opponent is standard political fare: “They follow nothing but conjecture and what they themselves desire! Whereas guidance has come to them from their Lord! Nay, shall man have anything he hankers after, whatever he covets?” It seemed to work for Muhammad. The career move from prophet to profiteer would satiate his every craving. For example, when Muhammad wanted more women, Allah said: Qur’an 33:51 “You may have whomever you desire; there is no blame.”
Fortunately, we have ratted him out. This surah is as transparent as it is incriminating. Qur’an 53:26 “And there are many angels in heaven whose intercession does not avail except after Allah has given permission to whom He pleases and chooses. Those who believe not name the angels with female names.” This is Qur’anic waffling. Muhammad is trying to please both Meccan and Muslim. He’s saying that the female goddesses could be angels, and that Allah might consider allowing them to be intercessors after all.
The next eight verses can be summarized by: “The Meccans know nothing and want everything and Muhammad knows all and wants nothing.” Then Qur’an 53:36 “Nay, is he not acquainted with what is in the Pages (of the Books) of Moses – and of Abraham who fulfilled all that?” Muhammad is admitting that the Torah was the source of his “inspiration,” but he doesn’t know much about “all that.”
“The Muslims who had left Abyssinia [Ethiopia] upon hearing that the Quraysh had prostrated themselves with the Prophet, now approached. When they neared Mecca, they learned that the rumor of the Meccan people accepting Islam was false. They returned to their families and said, ‘You are more dear to us [than Islam, is the implication].’ The people reversed their decision….” Considering the distances, and the speed upon which news and people traveled, Muhammad may have gone as long as a year before he bailed out on the Quraysh Bargain and Allah’s little girls. The indulgence cost him most of his converts.
This admission of failure is followed by a second variant of the Satanic Verses. It ends with this admission: “The Messenger said, ‘I have fabricated things against Allah and have imputed to Him words which He has not spoken.'”
The Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses conclude my case against the religion of Islam. 
The Satanic Verses according to Ibn Ishaq
Pagan Goddesses Lat, Uzza, and Manat are Mentioned in the Quran
The goddesses of the Satanic verses are mentioned in the following Quranic verses:
Quran 53: 19-22
Have ye seen Lat. and ‘Uzza,
And another, the third (goddess), Manat?
What! for you the male sex, and for Him, the female?
Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair!
The pagans prostrated when they heard Mohammed speak the conciliatory verses.
Sahih Bukhari 6:60:385
Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet performed a prostration when he finished reciting Surat-an-Najm, and all the Muslims and pagans and Jinns and human beings prostrated along with him.
The Satanic Verses Incident
***Under increasing boycotts and pressure from the pagan (Quraysh) Meccans, a weakened and precarious Muhammad accommodated the Meccan pagans by acknowledging the existence of the three pagan goddesses Lat, Uzza, and Manat, alongside Allah.
According to Ibn Ishaq
From Ibn Ishaq’s book “The Life of Muhammad”. Ibn Ishaq is the earliest known Islamic Historian.
(T. Now the apostle was anxious for the welfare of his people, wishing to attract them as far as he could. It has been mentioned that he longed for a way to attract them, and the method he adopted is what Ibn Hamid told me that Salama said M. b. Ishaq told him from Yazid b. Ziyad of Medina from M. b. Ka’b al-Qurazi: When the apostle saw that his people turned their backs on him and he was pained by their estrangement from what he brought them from God he longed that there should come to him from God a message that would reconcile his people to him. Because of his love for his people and his anxiety over them it would delight him if the obstacle that made his task so difficult could be removed; so that he meditated on the project and longed for it and it was dear to him. Then God sent down ‘By the star when it sets your comrade errs not and is not deceived, he speaks not from his own desire,’ and when he reached His words ‘Have you thought of al-Lat and al-‘Uzza and Manat the third, the other’, Satan, when he was meditating upon it, and desiring to bring it
The news reached the prophet’s companions who were in Abyssinia, it being reported that Quraysh had accepted Islam, so some men started to return while others remained behind. Then Gabriel came to the apostle and said, ‘What have you done, Muhammad? You have read to these people something I did not bring you from God and you have said what He did not say to you. The apostle was bitterly grieved and was greatly in fear of God. So God sent down (a revelation), for He was merciful to him, comforting him and making light of the affair and telling him that every prophet and apostle before him desired as he desired and wanted what he wanted and Satan interjected something into his desires as he had on his tongue. So God annulled what Satan had suggested and God established His verses i.e. you are just like the prophets and apostles. Then God sent down: ‘We have not sent a prophet or apostle before you but when he longed Satan cast suggestions into his longing. But God will annul what Satan has suggested. Then God will establish his verses, God being knowing and wise.’ Thus God relieved his prophet’s grief, and made him feel safe from his fears and annulled what Satan had suggested in the words used above about their gods by his revelation ‘Are yours the males and His the females? That were indeed an unfair division’ (i.e. most unjust); ‘they are nothing but names which your fathers gave them as far as the words ‘to whom he pleases and accepts’, i.e. how can the intercession of their gods avail with Him?Ishaq:167When the annulment of what Satan had put upon the prophet’s tongue
came from God, Quraysh said: ‘Muhammad has repented of what he said about the position of your gods with Allah, altered it and brought something else.’ Now those two words which Satan had put upon the apostle’s tongue were in the mouth of every polytheist and they became more violently hostile to the Muslims and the apostle’s followers. Meanwhile those of his companions who had left Abyssinia when they heard that the people of Mecca had accepted Islam when they prostrated themselves with the apostle, heard when they approached Mecca that the report was false and none came into the town without the promise of protection or secretly. Of those who did come into Mecca and stayed there until he migrated to Medina and were present at Badr with him was ‘Uthman b. ‘Affan . . . with his wife Ruqayya d. of the apostle and Abu Hudhayfa b. ’Utba with his wife Sahla d. of Suhayl, and a number of others, in all thirty-three men.[16 ]
