131 - ADDITION EXAMPLE 1: ANALYSIS of this omission - Summary and results

When you compare how each of the 11 subjects is taken up in the six different passages of the Koran on this episode in the life of Adam and his wife, you will find: some sentences for a given subject are identical in wording and content (Quotations or Repetitions), some sentences are omitted in some of the koranic passages (Omissions), some of these koranic passages have added sentences for a specific subject that cannot be found in any other of the six koranic passage (Additions), and finally some sentences on a given subject were changed in some of the koranic passages (Changes, including Paraphrases, i.e. similar content, but different wording). This means that what we discovered when comparing the Bible and the Koran (Omissions, Additions and Changes) also applies when comparing different passages of the Koran on one and the same subject: there you also find Omissions, Additions and Changes, but in addition you also have Quotations (actually: Repetitions), which you do not find, when comparing the Koran with the Bible.

These six passages with their cumulative 11 subjects are a solid scriptural basis for occultism in Islam. The Devil is revealed by Allah in the Koran as someone, who should be punished, but who is granted a delay from this punishment in order for him to harass human beings. In spite of a contrary promise of the Koran, many Muslims do encounter harassments from the Devil, and the Koran contains passages (e.g. Suras 113 and 114), which Muslims recite or wear as amulets to protect themselves from such harassment by the Devil. Also Muslims must stone the Devil during their pilgrimage rites of the Hajj to Mecca, by throwing 70 pebbles at three columns representing Satan, upholding by this practice the koranic description of the Devil as ”the Stoned One” (al-Rajeem). There is no indication that Allah has once and for all vanquished the Devil. Rather there is a tacit agreement between Allah and the Devil that allows and permits the latter to harass human beings until Judgment Day. However, the act of Islam, i.e. the act of total subjugation to Allah, is presented in the Koran as the only remedy against the Devil, because Allah did not give the Devil power over such slavish worshippers of Allah (i.e. Muslims). In this sense Islam itself is presented as the ultimate antidote against the harassments of the Devil. By the way, no reason is given in the Koran, why Allah commanded the angels to worship Adam.
