(Alms are) for the poor who are confined in the way of Allah — they cannot go about in the land; the ignorant man thinks them to be rich on account of (their) abstaining (from begging); you can recognise them by their mark; they do not beg from men importunately; and whatever good thing you spend, surely Allah knows it. (As for) those who spend their property by night and by day, secretly and openly, they shall have their reward from their Lord and they shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve. Those who swallow down usury cannot arise except as one whom Shaitan has prostrated by (his) touch does rise. That is because they say, trading is only like usury; and Allah has allowed trading and forbidden usury. To whomsoever then the admonition has come from his Lord, then he desists, he shall have what has already passed, and his affair is in the hands of Allah; and whoever returns (to it) — these arc the inmates of the fire; they shall abide in it. Allah does not bless usury, and He causes charitable deeds to prosper, and Allah does not love any ungrateful sinner.

But when you enter houses, greet one another with a greeting from God, blessed and good. So God makes clear to you the signs; haply you will understand.

Discussion

It cannot be a coincidence that so many verses in the Quran are similar to that in the Bible. Islam came in the 7th century, 600 years after Christianity. There is very little uniqueness in Islam, having adopted most of the major rituals of Pagan Quraysh worship and then plagiarised Christian doctrines to form a new cult. Hence there are  serious questions regarding the historicity, the uniqueness and the beneficence of their god, Allah. Allah is, without a  doubt, a composition of the Arabic Quraysh and Christian and Judaic mythology of the day.

Muhammad’s preachings were ridiculed and rejected by the Jews, Christians, and the pagan Arabs of his day and that made him very bitter and angry. Hence Muhammad’s verses of violence and hatred (Jihad and killings) has been attributed to this rejection.

With today’s scientific knowledge we know that the Angel Gabril/Gabriel was fictitious and could never have communicated with Muhammad. We also can be sure that Allah, God too is a mythical figure worshipped by ancient cultures of the day and adopted by the Abrahamic faiths. In fact, neither history nor archaeology support the historicity of Abraham or Adam. All these ancient figures have been the product of myths and legends of old. So it is time Muslim scholars get real and see the true roots and myths of their beliefs.

Muhammad grew up in the culture of the Quraysh tribe, a pagan, Hubal (moon god) worshipping, alien culture from Judaism or Christianity. But Muhammad who was exposed to Judaism and Christianity was so impressed by the freedom and monotheism of the Jewish and Christin faiths that he was determined to modernise the faith of his ancestors from polytheism to monotheism. Therefore you will find that Muhammad introduced many concepts from the Bible that were alien to the Quraysh beliefs like: monotheism, Abraham and Isaac and Ishmael (the ancestors of Judaism), Heaven(Paradise) and Hell, creation, and the creation of man from clay, creation of the Universe, and many other concepts into his new Islam.

Muhammad’s Angel Gabriel(Myth), and Allah (also a Myth), did not have many original ideas or concepts of Heaven or God or creation and adopted the concepts from other faiths. The evidence in the Quran speaks for itself. So Muhammad’s Islam is a hodge-podge of Arab and Quraysh religious beliefs corrupted with Judaism and Christianity and  very  bitter rhetoric from Muhammad himself having been rejected and ridiculed for his preachings of the new religion Islam which had a very slow beginning were it not for Muhammad’s introduction of brutal and violent methods to recruit followers. This included the death penalty for those who left Islam.
