A FEW PAGES FROM TURAN DURSUN'S BOOK (Din Bu 1):
God changing his mind
According to Religion Institute's official translation, the meaning of 106th verse of al-Baqarah:
"Whatever the validity of Our verses We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou not that God Hath power over all things?"
How ever this translation's saying "validity of Our verses", in fact the word "validity" doesn't exist. In other words, "abrogating of verse itself" is what is told in this verse.
In this case, God of the Quran is saying in the verse above:
Sometimes, We abrogate verses. Sometimes, We also cause verses to be forgotten. When we abrogate verses or cause them to be forgotten, we bring (in
place) one better or the like thereof. Know that Allah has power over all things? In this verse it's clearly stated that some of the verses were abrogated, and some of them were caused to be forgotten. It's also stated that some of the verses brought in place, are better, some of them are similar.
Substituting, Abrogating Verses
The meaning of 101st verse of an-Nahl:
"And when We put a verse in place of (another) verse, - and Allah knows best what He reveals - they say: Lo! thou art but inventing. Most of them know not."
Here, a revelation which is said, is substituting for another one. One of them is abrogated, and the other one is brought in place. Either in al-Baqarah or al-Nahl it is said that these are done by God.
"Nasih" is a way of explanation invented by the Quran commentators, for the contradictory verses in Quran. "Nasih" is also used for explaining the Hadith's contradictories.
In 65th verse of an-Anfal, after saying "O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight (war)." then it continues "if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand."
God clearly informs that believers can overcome unbelievers whose army is ten times bigger. But then he changes his mind. Look what's he saying:
"For the present Allah has made light your burden, and He knows-comprehends [alimellahu] that there is weakness in you; so if there are a hundred patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand they shall overcome two thousand by Allah's permission, and Allah is with the patient." (an-Anfal, 66th verse)
Turan Dursun, 26th October, 1989
The Moon had been rent into twain and had fallen onto the earth!
Let's examine the miracle which is called The Shak al-Qamar (Moon's Division) Miracle. According to Religion Institution's authorized translation, 1st verse of al-Qamar Sura comes to mean: The Hour (of Judgment) draws nigh, and the moon leaves.
In this translation, the words "is nigh, leaves" don't match the words in the verse. In the verse, for this sentence, past tense is used. So the right form is: (drew nigh, left) For being suitable for the word
"enjacca", instead of "left", we should use "rent twain". Religion Institution's translation is an attempt of concealing "irrationality and being unscientific", which was based on the interpretation of Ibn ul-Gewzi (see, tefsiru ibnu'l-Gewzi, 8/89) These interpretations are not accepted by Koran commentors. (See M.Ali Sabuni, Safvetu't- tefisir, 3/284; Hizin, 4/226.)
For these reasons, the right translation of the verse is:
"The hour drew nigh and the moon was rent in twain." The following two verse comes to mean: "And if they behold a portent they turn away and say: Prolonged illusion. They denied (the Truth) and followed their own lusts. Yet everything will come to a decision." (al-Qamar 2-3)
As you see, these verses clearly told that the moon had been split and that event had also signed that the judgement day had been nigh, and unbelievers had denied that event. Let's examine the hadiths about the events which these verses were about.
Is the moon in the sky, or the Hira Mountain in Arabia bigger?
The students in the primary schools think that the question is nonsense, don't they? But, according to hadiths, it shouldn't be considered as nonsense.
Son of Malik, Anas told:
"The people of Mecca asked the Prophet to show them a sign (miracle). So he showed them (the miracle) of the cleaving of the moon. The moon was cleft asunder into two parts. So that, they were seeing the Hira Mountain between these parts. (See Bukhari, e's-Sahih, Kitabu'1- Menakib/36; Muslim, e's-Sahih, Kitabu St- fati'l- Munafdun/46-47, hadith no: 2802.)
Abdullah Ibn Masud told:
"While we were in the companion of the Prophet in the Mina, the moon was cleft asunder suddenly and it became two parts. One part went beyond the mountain, the other remained at the near side of the mountain. On that, the Prophet said, "Witness this miracle." (See Bukhari, es-Sahih, same part; Muslim, e's-Sahih, same part, hadith no:2800.)
Think. Unbelievers wanted Mohammed to show a miracle, so that he could prove his prophethood. God gave power to Mohammed, and Mohammed showed his miracle: The moon in the sky, the moon which has stepped by Americans, the moon which we know was split into two parts. The moon which was separated, fell onto the earth. It could fit into the small area of the earth. When it fell, it didn't give any harm to anyone. The moon had been so small that: The Hira Mountain was bigger. As looking from a distance, the Hira Mountain was able to be seen between the two moon parts! And think. The people of Mecca didn't regarded even that event as a miracle, although they witnessed the "Event". And the moon which was able to be seen from everywhere, split into two parts and fell onto the earth, and nobody didn't notice this. Nobody neither saw nor wrote the "Event". Except Mohammed's believers... In addition to this, division of the moon was the proof that judgement day was nigh as told before.
According to the hadiths and verses above, we should "believe" those. Certainly, everyone is free in believing. Who can judge this belief? What we are doing now, just a determination and an exhibition. It shouldn't be omitted that: How believers have right to believe, unbelievers have right not to believe. Allowance freedom to the manhood's mind and science requires this.
