The True Origins of the Koran
THURSDAY, JULY 2, 2009

From Barbara Walker’s “The Woman’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets” (Image: The Goddess Kore, from the PARTHENON, temple of the goddess Athena on the Acropolis. From the 6th century BCE. Photo Greek National Museum, Athens. Notice the artistry – are those just braids in her hair, or are they intertwined with serpents?)

Koran Mohammedan scriptures, often erroneously thought to have been written by Mohammed. Moslems don’t believe this.

*****(1) But many don’t know the Koran was an enlarged, revised version of the ancient Word of the Goddess Kore, revered by Mohammed’s tribe, the Koreshites (Children of Kore), who guarded her shrine at Mecca.

The original writing was done long before Mohammed’s time by holy imams, a word related to Semitic imp, “mother.”

(2) Like the original mahatmas or “great mothers” in India,the original imams were probably priestesses of the old Arabian matriarchate. ***It was said they took the scriptures from a prototype that existed in heaven from the beginning of eternity, “Mother of the Book” – i.e., the Goddess herself, wearing the Book of Fate on her breast as Mother Tiamat wore the Tablets of Destiny. Sometimes the celestial Koran was called the ***Preserved Tablet.

(3) There was some resemblance between this and other legendary books of divine origin, such as the ***Ur-text, ***the Book of Thoth and the ***Emerald Tablet of Hermes. As in the case of the Judeo-Christian Bible, the Koran was much rewritten to support new patiarchal laws and to obliterate the figures of the Goddess andher priestesses.

Kore Greek Holy Virgin, inner soul of Mother Earth [Demeter – The Divine Mother, she of the mare’s head whose mane was entwined with serpents — see earlier entry on Delphi]; a name so widespread, that it must have been one of the earliest designations of the World Shakti or female spirit of the universe. Variations include Ker, Car, Q’re, Cara, Kher, Ceres, Core, Sanskrit Kaur or Kauri, alternate names for the Goddess Kali.

Neolithic Asia knew a mysterious Goddess Ker, or Car, ancestress of the Carians.

(1) Her city in the Chersonese was Cardia “the Goddess Car.” Kardia became the Greek word for “heart,” as cor became the Latin; both descended from the Goddess who was the world-heart. The same syllable is found in words for maternal blood relationships: Gaelic cairdean, kinship; Turkish cards, maternal siblings.

(2) The Goddess became Cardia ton kosmos: “Heart of the World.”

(3) Shrines of Karnak in Egypt and Carnac in Brittany were sites of gigantic temples and funerary complexes over 5000 years ago, dedicated to Kar or Kore. France had similar shrines in similarly-named locations, Kerlescan, Mercado, Kermario.

(4) The last name combined the pagan Virgin with the Goddess Mari, who was sometimes her daughter, her mother, or herself, like Kali embodied in Kel-Mari.

(5) Inhabitants of Carnac, and of Carnantum on the Danube, called themselves in Roman times the Carnets, “people born of the Goddess Car.”

(6) In Egypt’s early dynastic period there was a place called Kerma (Mother Ker) in Nubia, where mass sacrifices took place. A similar name, Kara, was held in reverence by several early Egyptian rulers. Egyptians spoke of an eastern land called Kher [possibly – Kehmet? — land of the Mother Kar?], and called Palestine the country of Kharu.

(7) Car or Carna was known to the Romans as “a Goddess of the olden time,” whose archaic worship was connected with Karneia festivals of Sparta and the classic Roman Carnival.

(8) Sometimes she was Carmen, “the Mind of Car,” who invented the Roman alphabet.

(9) An extremely old temple on the Caelian Hill was dedicated to her.

(1) A later variation of her name was Ceres, origin of such words as cereal, corn, kernel, core, carnal, cardiac. In the east this ancient Goddess was everywhere. Some said she was Artemis Caryatis, mother of the Caryatides of the Laconian temple of Caryae.

(11) The Tyrian seaport of Caraalis (modern Cagliari) was sacred to her.

(12) One of Israel’s oldest shrines, the “garden” called Mount Carmel, was her place and that of her baalim (gods).

(13) Kore was a great power in Coptic religion, with a flourishing cult at Alexandria in the 4th century A.D. Her festival, the Koreion, was held each January 6 , later assimilated to Christianity as the feast of Epiphany.

[I believe this is the date the Holy Spirit in the form of “tongues of fire” was said to have descended upon the heads of loyal disciples of the LORD Jesus Christ who had gathered together in a room in Jerusalem to commemerate the 40th day after his death. This is an extremely ancient tradition that pre-dates Christianity and Islam. We have seen recently in Iran that people gather together to mourn the loss of a decedent 40 days after his or her death. The number “40” is mentioned several times in the Bible – according to Jewish tradition, this denotes a “long indeterminate period of time” but this is probably a later gloss-over of this number sacred to the Goddess].

Kore’s festival celebrated the birth of the new year god Aeon to the Virgin, whose naked image was carried seven times around the temple, decorated with gold stars and the sign of the cross. The priests announced to the public that the Virgin had brought forth the Aeon.

(14) The Koreion passed into British tradition as the Kirn, or Feast of Ingathering, which the church later changed to the Feast of Our Lady of Mercy. Kin was a cognate of the Greek kern or sacred womb-vase in which the grain god was reborn.

(15) [I assume this is also related to cairn, sacred burial place of the dead, and to the word corn – a food of the gods in the New World, and related words such as kernel. I find it very interesting that earlier this evening I blogged an article about an intact Elamite “jar burial” — perhaps another ancient tradition that is related to this equally old Mother Goddess.] Here again, the Kore or Ker was a virgin mother. The Goddess’s harvest instrument, a moon-sidle, represented even the Christian versin of the festival.

(16) The classic myth of Kore’s abduction by Pluto was another instance of a god’s usurpation of the Goddess’s power, according to Gnostic sources. “Plutonium Zeus…does not possess the nourishment for all mortal living creatures, for it is Kore who bears the fruit.”

(17) Kore’s resurrection represented the seasonal return of vegetation. She was also the World Soul animating each human soul, and looking out of the eyes. Reflection in the pupil of an eye was known as the Kore or “Maiden” in the eye. To the Arabs, it was the “baby” in the eye. The Bible calls either a daughter or a soul “the apple of thine eye” (Proverbs 7:2); and of course, every apple had a Kore. [Perhaps this belief is the source for the phrase in Bryan Adams’ mega-hit song from “Don Juan DeMarco” When You Really Love a Woman, “…when you can see your unborn children in her eyes, you know you really love a woman… .”

Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz (The Preserved Tablet) and its names

14. LAUH-E-MAHFOOZ [Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz (The Preserved Tablet) and its names]

Synonyms: LAUH MAHFOOZ, KITAABUM MAKNOON, UMM-UL-KITAAB, IMAAMUM MUBEEN

14.1 LAUH MAHFOOZ (لَوْح مَحْفُوظ): According to dictionary this word means ‘preserved tablet’. The complete comprehension to this tablet is beyond the bounds of human knowledge but according to legends this tablet or book contains all the matters related to the fate of the universe and it is not altered. Following is the knowledge of the names referred to it in the Quran

Surah Al-Burooj (The Mansions of the Stars): سورة البروج 85:21

بَلْ هُوَ قُرْآنٌ مَّجِيدٌ فِي لَوْحٍ مَّحْفُوظٍ

No indeed, (but) it is an Ever-Glorious Qur’an, in a preserved Tablet.

Thus the Quran is also derived from the LAUH MEHFOOZ (لَوْح مَحْفُوظ).

 

14.2 UMM-UL-KITAAB (اُمُّ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ):

Surah Az-Zukhruf (Ornaments of Gold): سورۃالزُّخرف 43:3-4

إِنَّا جَعَلۡنَـٰهُ قُرۡءَٲنًا عَرَبِيًّ۬ا لَّعَلَّڪُمۡ تَعۡقِلُونَ وَإِنَّهُ ۥ فِىٓ أُمِّ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ لَدَيۡنَا لَعَلِىٌّ حَكِيمٌ

We verily, have made it a Quran in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). And Verily, it (this Quran) is in the Mother of the Book (i.e. Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz), before Us, indeed Exalted, full of Wisdom.

It is said about the Quran that is a part or the UMM-UL-KITAAB (اُمُّ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبِ). An important fact is cleared here that Allah has revealed Holy books upon Prophets belonging to different era and nations. But they all advocated for the same doctrine. The standard of vice and virtues were the same, so were the laws of morality and civilization. Thus the religion always remained the same. Regarding the changes in laws and Shariah it is said in the Quran

Surah Al-Rad (The Thunder): سُوۡرَةُ الرّعد13:39

يَمۡحُواْ ٱللَّهُ مَا يَشَآءُ وَيُثۡبِتُ‌ۖ وَعِندَهُ ۥۤ أُمُّ ٱلۡڪِتَـٰبِ

Allah blots out what He wills and confirms (what He wills). And with Him is the Mother of the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz)

According to this Ayah the changes in the Shariah Law and regulations were also recorded in this book.

PAGE – 772

 

14.3 IMAAMUM MUBEEN (إِمَامٌ مُّبِينٍ): In another place in Quran

Surah As-Sajda (The prostration ): سُوۡرَةُ السَّجدَة 32:39

وَكُلَّ شَيْءٍ أَحْصَيْنَاهُ فِي إِمَامٍ مُّبِينٍ

We have recorded with numbers (as a record) in a Clear Book.

 

14.4 KITAABUM MAKNOON (كِتَابٌ مَّكْنُون): Also in the Quran

Surah Al-Waqiah (The Inevitable): سُوۡرَةُ الواقِعَة 56:77

إِنَّهُ لَقُرْآنٌ كَرِيمٌ فِي كِتَابٍ مَّكْنُونٍ

It is a noble Quran. In a well-protected Book.

 

From this ayah we come to know that the contents of this book are not known by anyone except Allah not even Gabriel (Jibraeel) who used to take the divine revelations to Prophets.

Summary:

*****14.1 LAUH MAHFOOZ: The tablet that is protected from any alterations.

*****14.2 UMM-UL-KITAAB: Because it is the collection of all the Laws, rules and orders of Allah.

*****14.3 IMAAMUM MUBEEN: Because everything is already written in it.

*****14.4 KITAABUM MAKNOON: Because its contents are not known to anyone except Allah. [2]

Details about the Preserved Tablet

Question

Assalamu Alaykum, What is the preserved tablet (al-lawh al-mahfouz)? Where is it located? When was it created? Thank you

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  is His slave and Messenger.

 

*****The Preserved Tablet is the Book in which Allaah had written the predestination of His Creation before He created them.

Allaah Says (what means): {Do you not know that Allaah knows what is in the heaven and earth? Indeed, that is in a Record.}[Quran 22:70] Ibn ‘Atiyyah  said: “This (i.e. the Record) is the Preserved Tablet.” Moreover, the Prophet  said: “First of all, there was nothing but Allaah and (then He created His throne). His Throne was over the water, and He wrote everything in the Book (in the heaven) and created water, the heavens and the earth.” Ibn Hajar  said: “What is meant with Reminder here is the Preserved Tablet.

*****As regards the location of this Book, it is in the seventh heaven, as stated by Ash-Shawkaani  from some scholars from among our righteous predecessors. However, we are not aware of any authentic narration which clarifies when it was exactly created. *****However, it is confirmed that the Prophet  said: “Allaah has decreed the destiny of all the creatures 50,000 years before He created the heavens and the earth.” [Muslim]  [3]

Appendix

In reply to Gul Khan Mohmand.

Gul Khan Mohmand: Thank you for your comments which I have approved for all to see.
Unfortunately I do not believe that the Quran was written in 23 years nor was Muhammad the originator of the Quran. I believe that:

(1) Many don’t know the Koran was an enlarged, revised version of the ancient Word of the Goddess Kore, revered by Mohammed’s tribe, the Koreshites (Children of Kore), who guarded her shrine at Mecca.

The original writing was done long before Mohammed’s time by holy imams, a word related to Semitic imp, “mother.”

(2) It was said they took the scriptures from a prototype that existed in heaven from the beginning of eternity, “Mother of the Book” – i.e., the Goddess herself, wearing the Book of Fate on her breast as Mother Tiamat wore the Tablets of Destiny. Sometimes the celestial Koran was called the ***Preserved Tablet.

(3) There was some resemblance between this and other legendary books of divine origin, such as the ***Ur-text, ***the Book of Thoth and the ***Emerald Tablet of Hermes. As in the case of the Judeo-Christian Bible, the Koran was much rewritten to support new patriarchal laws and to obliterate the figures of the Goddess and her priestesses.

*****14.1 LAUH MAHFOOZ: The tablet that is protected from any alterations.

*****14.2 UMM-UL-KITAAB: Because it is the collection of all the Laws, rules and orders of Allah.

*****14.3 IMAAMUM MUBEEN: Because everything is already written in it.

*****14.4 KITAABUM MAKNOON: Because its contents are not known to anyone except Allah. [2]

Guy Khan, from the above, it would seem that there is a lot about the Quran that you did not even know. So go and do some deep research to find out more about the mythical origins of the Quran.
