Did Noble Verse 54:1 come from Imru'u Al-Qays' (امرئ القيس) poems?

The sections of this article are:

1-  Noble Verse 54:1 and the Scientific Miracle.
2-  The alleged poem's history and some facts -
Clair Tisdall backed down from his original attack on the Holy Quran.

3-  Conclusion. (Must read)

  

  

  

1-  Noble Verse 54:1 and the Scientific Miracle:

Noble Verse(s) 54:1
Yusuf Ali:

[054:001]  The Hour (of Judgment) is nigh, and the moon is cleft asunder.

Arabic (from right to left):

54:1 اقتربت الساعة وانشق القمر

NASA had just recently confirmed that the moon had been split due to violent ancient moon quakes.  For more details and pictures on this, please visit:  The moon's crack in the Noble Quran, and its appearance to split in half according to MANY eye witnesses, including non-Muslims!

  

  

2-  The alleged poem's history and some facts:

Clair Tisdall backed down from his original attack on the Holy Quran.

The following can be found at: [1] [2].  Emphasis below are mine.

  

On pages 47-49, we find the "Appendix to Chapter II" quoted here in full:

It is sometimes said in the East at the present day that Muhammad not only adopted many of the ancient habits and religious rites of the heathen Arabs and incorporated them into Islam, but that he was also guilty of plagiarism in borrowing parts of certain verses of Imrau'l Qais, an ancient Arabic poet. These, it is asserted, may still be found in the Qur'an. I have even heard a story to the effect that one day when Fatimah, Muhammad's daughter, was reciting the verse "The Hour has come near and the Moon has split asunder" (Surah LIV., Al Qamar, 1), a daughter of the poet was present and said to her, "That is a verse from one of my father's poems, and your father has stolen it and pretended that he received it from God." This tale is probably false, for Imrau'l Qais died about the year 540 of the Christian era, while Muhammad was not born till A.D. 570, "the year of the Elephant."

In a lithographed edition of the Mu`allaqat, which I obtained in Persia, however, I found at the end of the whole volume certain Odes there attributed to Imrau'l Qais, though not recognized as his in any other edition of his poems which I have seen. In these pieces of doubtful authorship I found the verses quoted below.[1] Though they contain some obvious blunders, I think it best to give them without correction. The passages marked with a line above them occur also in the Qur'an (Surah LIV., Al Qamar, 1, 29, 31, 46; Surah XCIII., Adduba', 1; Surah XXI., Al Anbiya 96; Surah XXXVII., As Saffat, 59), except that in some of the words there is a slight difference though the meaning is the same. It is clear therefore that there is some connexion between these lines and the similar verses of the Qur'an.

[Footnote]
1. Regarding the Mu`allaqat it may be well to quote the following from Abu Ja`far Ahmad ibn Isma`il an nahhas (died A.H. 338) He says:-


As-Suyuti says very much the same, though he also refers to the story that the verses were hung up in the Ka`bah as possible (Mudhkir, II., 240).

There seems good reason to doubt whether Imrau'l Qais is the author of the lines in question. They may have been borrowed from the Qur'an instead of having been inserted therein from an author who lived before Muhammad's time. On the one hand it is difficult to suppose that at any time after the establishment of Islam any one would have the daring to parody the Qur'an by taking passages from it and applying them to the subject to which these lines of poetry refer. On the other hand, it is very customary even in comparatively modern times to quote verses of the Qur'an and work them into later compositions of a philosophical or religious character, to which class, however, these Odes do not belong. It would be difficult to imagine Muhammad venturing to plagiarize from such a well-known author as Imrau'l Qais (even though, as we shall see later, he did so from less known foreign sources (From me, Osama Abdallah: This nonsense is thoroughly refuted here: [1] [2] [3]); though this may be in part met by supposing that, as these Odes formed no part of the Mu`allaqat, they were not as generally current as poems contained in the latter collection were. The account generally given of the Mu`allaqat is that, whenever any one had composed an especially eloquent poem, it was suspended on the wall of the Ka`bah, and that the poems in this celebrated collection owe their name, which means " The Suspended Poems," to this custom. Good authorities[1], however, deny that this was the origin of the name, but that is perhaps a matter of little importance. In spite of the Eastern story which I have quoted, the balance of probability certainly inclines to the supposition that Muhammad was not[1] guilty of the daring plagiarism of which he has been accused.[2]

  

[Footnotes]
1. This is the opinion of Sir C. J. Lyall, than whom it would be difficult to find any one better qualified to speak on the subject of ancient Arabic poetry. In a letter which he has kindly sent me regarding the authorship of the lines in question attributed to Imrau'l Qais, he expresses his conviction that they are not his, giving reasons founded principally upon the style and the metre. I have incorporated some of his observations into this Appendix, and I owe to him also the preceding note. His arguments have caused me to modify the opinion on the subject expressed in my Persian work, Yanabi`u'l Islam.
2. The Rev. Dr. Zwemer, of Bahrain, however, informs me that he has found the words Danati 'ssa`atu wa'nshaqqa 'lqamaru (cf. Surah LIV., 1, Iqtarabati 'ssa`atu wa'nshaqqa 'lqamaru) in the last section of the last poem of Imrau'l Qais in an edition which he possesses. He adds: "A Shaikh taught in Al Azhar tells me that this evident quotation perplexes learned Muslims."

Also, Jochen Katz apologized to the Muslims: http://www.answering-islam.org/Quran/Sources/qais.html

"Some might have heard the above questioned claim, repeated by some Christian authors who do not know better (and then also by those who read their books). The following article will show that this claim is not substantiated by sufficient evidence.

This result of my investigation into the origin of this claim is provided as an apology to the Muslims who might have had to bear this attack through an unsubstantiated allegation and as a service to the Christians so that they may know better and not base any argument on information erroneously claimed to be a fact. We are called to be people of truth and need no false claims, either for our own faith or in questioning Islam."

    Some very STUNNING Divine Miracles:

    Here are two of my favorite ones from among the tens (10s) that are listed in this section:

    1-  Here is one stunning Numerical Miracle, from the 10s below, for you:

    The Glorious Quran has 114 Chapters. The sum of those Chapters is 6555 (1+2+...+114 = 6555). There are also 6236 Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran. Now, IF YOU ADD EACH CHAPTER # with the number of its Verses, then you get a list of numbers. So 1 (first Chapter) + 7 (# of its Verses) = 8. Do this for all Chapters.

    1-  The sum of the odd numbers from the list = 6555.
    2-  The sum of the even numbers from the list = 6236.

    See the XLS file for 100% confirmation.
      

    2-  The Great Miracle.  Allah Almighty in the Holy Quran called the Number 19 Miracle "One of the Mighty Ones (Miracles)" (74:30-37) [1] [2].  Did you also know that Allah Almighty Said in Surat Nuh (that's Noble Chapter Nuh (Noah)) that Prophet Noah lived for 950 years among his people.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah is exactly written in 950 Letters!  You can see this in the scanned images that I produced with my own hand-written verification for each Noble Letter.  Click on the link to see the many Numerical Miracles in the Holy Quran.  Also, see the Numerical Miracles section, below, along with all of the other great sections.

    71. The Shooting Stars (Shahab) Quran Miracle is confirmed by Science!  This is indeed one of the Glorious Quran's Top Stunning Miracles!  The Gamma Ray Bursts and Cosmic Jets affirm to the Truth of Noble Verse 67:5 and the other ample Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran, that I provided in the article.  Also, the Miracle of Copper in Noble Verse 55:35 is also thoroughly confirmed with 10s of pictures, references, quotations and proofs from ample Scientific sources.
        

      Important Notes:

      1-  Many ignorant anti-Islamics use the "Shooting Stars shooting or striking the trespassing Jinns (Demons)" in space, by Allah Almighty's Command and Will, for mockery against Islam.  Their ignorance is thoroughly exposed in this article, insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing), because this turned out to be one Great Scientific Miracle in the Glorious Quran.

      2-  Main Section #3, below, has all of the Detailed Noble Verses that prove that Shahab is Ray Lights emitted from Stars that strikes the Jinns.  It seems that Guided Pulsar Gamma Rays (perhaps there are other stars as well) are used to shoot down the devils by Allah Almighty's Will.  Pay special attention to Noble Verses 37:6-10 & 86:1-3.

      3-  Main Section #4, below, has a very important rebuttals, from the Glorious Quran Itself!  Wormholes in the Holy Quran are also covered in this section.

        

      Our Sun is a "Giant Plasma Weapon":

      You can further research "Coronal Mass Ejections" or CME's on Youtube for ample more videos.  They are Solar X-Rays that eject extremely powerful energy and trillions of particles traveling at 8 million kilometers per hour deep into space.  Our sun is a "Giant Plasma Weapon". 

      This video was taken from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTa88We-d-g.  This is also the video's Main Channel.  It was recommended to me by brother Dawud on this site's Blog.  May Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.

        
          

    72. Were cloning, human-cloning, and gender alteration prophesied in Islam?  See the Glorious Quran's direct Stunning Miracle and Prophecy about modern-day cloning, and how it is dependent upon cutting of the ear.
                 
      1. I (humbly speaking) discovered the following, and currently building my Research on it:  Evidence that Allah Almighty created the People of Adam through Cloning.  Cloning is mentioned in multiple places in the Glorious Quran [1], and is one of the End of Times Prophecies as well.  Cloning is definitely NOT a foreign concept in the Glorious Quran.  Satan's final battle with GOD Almighty is to cause mankind to "cut the cattle's ears and alter the creation of Allah Almighty" (4:119), i.e., cloning (as this is how it began today) [1].
          
    73. The Miracle of Generation of Paint from the Explosions of Galaxies' Stars in Space - Mentioned in the Holy Quran and confirmed by Science.
        
    74. The formation of milk from blood and FARTH (dissolved or digested food's material) - mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!
        
          
    75. Honey was proven to be a healing medicine for humans as was mentioned in the Noble Quran.

    76. What do bees eat according to the Glorious Quran?  In the article, you'll also see the following video:
        
    77. Do bees really feed off of fruits and sweet things?  "all manner of fruit (من كل الثمرات)" also means all sweet-tasting things, for bees pursue all natural-sugar-tasting things, which exist heavily in fruits.  Watch this bee eat from the fruit in slow motion, along with other bees eating other fruits.  This video also covers the healing and medical benefits of honey, a "healing for men" (فيه شفاء للناس):

      As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers,

      I have thoroughly demonstrated the Glorious Quran's ample Scientific Notions using 7 dictionaries (Lisan Al-Arab among them) at: http://www.answering-christianity.com/detailed_meanings_of_scientific_words_in_verses.htm.

      As to the Universe Expanding, the Arabic Word used by Allah Almighty is MOUSI'OONA (موسعون expanding) in Noble Verse 51:47, which is a verb of the noun WAASI'A (واسع vast).  Now some might say that MOUSI'OONA only means "WE MADE IT VAST", and is not a contineous process.  I respond to them by saying that the word would then have to be AWSA'NA (أوسعنا expanded or made bigger), and not the continueous action and verb MOUSI'OONA (موسعون expanding).  MOUSI'OONA is clearly a verb that refers to a continuing expansion, or a happening and ongoing expansion.  

      Let me give you this example, from among many, that will further prove this beyond any doubt, insha'Allah.  As a Muslim, you are familiar with the following Arabic terms:

      1-  Tawheed (توحيد The concept of Oneness, which implies Oneness of Allah Almighty).

      2-  Wahid (واحد One, and it could either mean the number one, or Allah Almighty is One).

      3-  Muwahhid (موحد Islamically implies that one who declares or believes that Allah Almighty is One, or in Arabic it also means a person who unites or makes a group as one).

      Muwahhid موحد , in the Islamic context here, means that one who believes in the One True GOD Almighty, and CONTINUES TO BELIEVE IN GOD ALMIGHTY.  It's a never-ending belief.  It's a belief that only stops when the person declares otherwise.

      Muwahhid موحد , in the Arabic context here, also means one who IS KEEPING THE UNITY!  Me for instance keeping all fights on this board out to keep the Muslims in love and unity with each others makes me A MUWAHHID OF THE PEOPLE, under Islam, on this board.  And it's a task that is ongoing, that is continuing.

      Similarly, the noun WAASI'A واسع is on the same linguistic balance as Wahid, and the ongoing Muwahhid موحد is on the same linguistic balance as MOUSI'A موسع , which is a plural verb of MOUSI'OONA موسعون .  So MOUSI'OONA here means an ongoing expansion, as in MUWAHHID here means an ongoing uniter and keeper of the unity and oneness of the group.

      In Arabic, we have a linguistic balance, which basically helps to define how the word is to be read, and what it means, and what type it is (noun, verb, adjective adverb, etc....).

      Another great example I can give you is the following two Arabic words:

      1-  MUHAYMIN (مهيمن, dominating over, ruling over, having an ongoing authority over, which was used for the Noble Quran being مهيمن over all previous Scriptures.  See Noble Verse 5:48).

      2-  HAYMANA (هيمن, which can be both a noun and a simple past, which means dominance (noun) or dominated or ruled over (simple past)).

      And like above, MUHAYMIN is on the same linguistic balance as MOUSI'A موسع , which is a plural verb of MOUSI'OONA موسعون .  Just like MUHAYMIN means the Quran having a never-ending Authority over all previous Scriptures until Allah Almighty makes It expire, in Noble Verse 5:48, MOUSI'OONA also means an ongoing and never-ending expansion of the Universe until Allah Almighty causes the Cosmic Crunch, which is also mentioned in the Glorious Quran:

      "The Day that We roll up the heavens like a scroll rolled up for books (completed),- even as We produced the first creation, so shall We produce a new one: a promise We have undertaken: truly shall We fulfill it.  (The Noble Quran, 21:104)" 

      And NASA has confirmed that:

      1-  There will be indeed a Cosmic Crunch when our ever expanding Universe finally collapses.

      2-  That our Universe is flat like a sheet of paper:

      "The simplest version of the inflationary theory, an extension of the Big Bang theory, predicts that the density of the universe is very close to the critical density, and that the geometry of the universe is flat, like a sheet of paper. That is the result confirmed by the WMAP science." (http://map.gsfc.nasa.gov/universe/uni_shape.html)

      Please visit: http://www.answering-christianity.com/cosmic_crunch.htm.



      Some of Allah Almighty's Divine Attributes:

      Another important point to note here is that Allah Almighty's Holy Names, which are also known as Allah Almighty's Divine Attributes, are NEVER-ENDING in existence and authority, and many of them are on the same linguistic balance as MOUSI'OONA.  By the way, the "A" in MOUSI'OONA is a vowel character, and not a letter.  So the Word is MOUSI'OON.  Consider the following Holy Names:

      1-  AL-MUHAYMIN, the Dominant over all things, or the Protector.

      2-  AL-MU'MIN, the Guardian Of Faith.

      3-  AL-MUSAWWIR, the Fashioner.

      4-  AL-MUTAKABBIR, the Majestic.

      5-  AL-MUTHILL, the Dishonourer.

      6-  AL-MUJEEB, the Responsive.

      7-  AL-MUTA'ALI, the Most Exalted.

      There are ample more Holy Names, but I think you get the picture.  Please visit: Allah Almighty's 99 Holy Names 


      I challenge any Arab, Muslim or non, to refute this.  Bring me their best arguments!  I already gave you the best one that was ever presented to me by a non-Muslim Arab, and how easily it was refuted.

      Furthermore, have you guys look at the Numerical, and Embryological (to say the least) Miracles in the Glorious Quran?  What metaphoric or figurative speech are the deniers of the Quran's Miracles talking about when they dismiss them with shallow statements?  Please visit the following link and thoroughly go through it:

      www.answering-christianity.com/ac20.htm#links

      I openly challenge Muslims before non-Muslims to debate me here on any specific subject or point regarding this area.  This is a humble challenge, and not hostile.  The Truth of the Glorious Quran is irrefutable.  Please do not follow Islam blindly.  Bring your best or worst arguments that are bothering you here, and let's see if the Quran stands or falls.  Nothing personal, dear brothers.

      I hope this helps, insha'Allah.

      Take care,
      Osama Abdallah

    Also, the following detailed article in Arabic gives 20 reasons why the poem is a fabrication against Islam.  Many of them are solid ones.  The article has 20 refutations to the alleged poem and prove that it was a lie put on the mouth of Imru'u Al-Qays' (امرئ القيس).  They quoted many early poetry historians and many other early sources that prove without any doubt that the poem is a fabrication.  Among their best arguments were the following:

    1-  The Arabs of Mecca, Madina and all other tribes were very knowledgeable of the Arabs' poetry.  Yet, not once was Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, charged with plagiarizing from Imru'u Al-Qays.

    2-  The early poetry historians such as Al-Thahabi and many others never once mentioned this poem and its verses.

    3-  The poem's verse itself about the moon split has three versions.

    "اقتربت الساعة وانشق القمر     من غزال صاد قلبي ونفر" (the hour has come near and the moon had split, from a gazelle that hunted my heart and ran away)

    "ذنت الساعة و إنشق القمر عن غزال صاد قلبي و نفر" (the hour came down and the moon has split, away from a gazelle that hunted my heart and ran away)

    "دنت الساعة وانشق القمر         غزال صاد قلبي ونفر" (the hour has come near and the moon has split, gazelle hunted my heart and ran away)

      
    4-  The other verses in the poem speak of resurrection:

    اقتربت الساعة وانشق القمر      من غزال صاد قلبي ونفر

    إذا زلزلت الأرض زلزالها         وأخرجت الأرض أثقالها

     تقوم الأنام على رسلها       ليوم الحساب ترى حالها

     يحاسبها ملك عادل                   فإما عليها وإما لها

    The pagans did not believe in resurrection as this was one of the main points for them initially rejecting Islam:

  • "Those are they who deny the Signs of their Lord and the meeting with HIM. So their works are vain, and on the Day of Resurrection WE shall give them no weight.  (The Noble Quran, 18:105)"
      

  • "If thou dost wonder at the infidels denying the resurrection, surely wonderful is their saying, after We shall have been reduced to dust, shall We be restored in a new creature? These are they who believe not in their Lord; these shall have collars on their necks, and these shall be the inhabitants of hell fire: Therein shall they abide for ever.  (The Noble Quran, 13:5)"
      

  • "O mankind! if ye have a doubt about the Resurrection, (consider) that We created you out of dust, then out of sperm, then out of a leech-like clot, then out of a morsel of flesh, partly formed and partly unformed, in order that We may manifest (our power) to you.....(The Noble Quran, 22:5)"
      

  • "And they say, when we shall lie hidden in the earth, shall we be raised thence a new creature? Yea, they deny the meeting of their Lord at the resurrection.  (The Noble Quran, 32:10)"
      

  • "Those who deny Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and the Meeting in the Hereafter (Day of Resurrection,), vain are their deeds. Do they expect to be rewarded with anything except what they used to do?  (The Noble Quran, 7:147)"
      

  • "Nay, they deny the Hour (the Day of Resurrection), and for those who deny the Hour, We have prepared a flaming Fire (i.e. Hell).  (The Noble Quran, 25:11)"
      

  • "And those who expect not for a Meeting with Us (i.e. those who deny the Day of Resurrection and the life of the Hereafter), say: "Why are not the angels sent down to us, or why do we not see our Lord?" Indeed they think too highly of themselves, and are scornful with great pride.  (The Noble Quran, 25:21)"
      

  • "Woe, that Day, to those who deny.  (The Noble Quran, 83:10)"
      

  • "Then what (or who) causes you (O disbelievers) to deny the Recompense (i.e. Day of Resurrection)(The Noble Quran, 95:7)"

  •   

      

    3-  Conclusion:

    As we clearly saw from the points above, the Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, was never ONCE charged with plagiarizing from Imru'u Al-Qays.  Also, the Persian source for the alleged poem is highly doubtful, and the poem itself doesn't exist anywhere in Imru'u Al-Qays' poetry-collections as we saw above.  There is clear evidence of fabrication from perhaps anti-Islamics back in the days.  It seems to me that this is an Islam-hating Persian fabrication against Islam, because:

    1-  Islam came and crushed the pagan Persian empire.

    2-  Many Persians remained non-Muslims, even to this day.

    3-  Persians used to look down upon Arabs, before Islam, because while the Persians had a great empire and civilization, the Arabs were backwards nomads and Bedouins who:

         (a)-  Hardly had any culture.
         (b)-  Hardly had any civilization.

    This is of course not stereotyping against all Iranians, for they do also have many pious Muslims among them.  But like Jews in relation to Good and evil (Ex: 911 was 100% an Israeli Mossad operation), and how many of them are a cancer to all of humanity (See my 666 and anti-Christ articles), many of them even today hate Islam, and are a cancer inside Islam.  You can especially see this among those Iranians who live in the West.  And even on the internet, some of the most venomous anti-Islamics are Iranians, such as Ali Sina, Salman Rushdie and others.  Even worse, Iran's entire "Islamic" regime is one of the most dangerous enemies to Islam, because it propagates a Shia version of Islam, which is mainly a heretical one that is full of corruptions, and even directly blasphemes against Allah Almighty and the Glorious Quran!

    I am not saying that the dictatorship regimes of Arabia are better or are legitimate.  They too are infidels.  But while those servants of America and the West and the entire ONE-EYED Zionist Machine (the one eye is an Islamic Prophecy.  See below) are corrupt rulers, but they are not considered Islamic Regimes.  Iran's government boasts about its regime being an Islamic one.  And like I said, it is both a corrupt one and a blaspheming one against GOD Almighty.  There is even a great deal of evidence that the ruling government of Iran are Iranian Jews.  There is also the same type of evidence on the ruling family of Saudi Arabia being Jews as well.

    Whatever the case maybe, Allah Almighty in the Glorious Quran has declared that the Zionsits will reach "Mighty Heights" علوا كبيرا  of evil power and might on earth:

      

    See also:  The Islamic Prophecies section.

      

      

    Zionist Israel will rule the earth with Mighty Evil!  (Islamic Prophecy)

    The Glorious Quran declared 1,400 years ago that the Israeli Zionist machine will rule the entire earth with mighty evil and power.  They will reach "Mighty Heights" علوا كبيرا  of evil power and might on earth.  See Noble Verses 17:4-8:

    Also, Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, made a stunning prophecy about the one-eyed anti-Christ who will rule the infidels and the world:

    Narrated Ibn Umar: "Once Allah's Apostle stood amongst the people, glorified and praised Allah as He deserved and then mentioned the Dajjal (anti-Christ) saying, "l warn you against him (i.e. the Dajjal) and there was no prophet but warned his nation against him. No doubt, Noah warned his nation against him but I tell you about him something of which no prophet told his nation before me. You should know that he is one-eyed, and Allah is not one-eyed."  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 553)"

    Prophet Muhammad had many visions about the dajjal, and gave many signs about him.  Some of the things the Prophet said about the dajjal were literal, and some were vision-metaphors.  The most prominent one is that he will be one-eyed.  This is both literal and metaphoric.  It is literal today because the zionist anti-Christ system is indeed represented by the ONE-EYE symbol as seen in the following images.  The metaphors here are Allah Almighty not being ONE-EYED, because nothing can describe Allah Almighty.  There is "none like unto Him" (Quran, 12:4).  For ample more details and proofs, please visit link below.

    Was the Islamic ONE-EYE Prophecy foretold before Islam in the Bible's Zechariah 11:17?  I demonstrated using ample Biblical verses that the ONE-EYED DAJJAL (anti-Christ) was never prophesied in the Bible to be ONE-EYED, nor was this Sign ever given in the Bible to any being.

  • I also showed how Jesus Christ, from among many other verses, used this "right eye" expression.  So it was never a Sign about the dajjal before Islam.  It was no more than a general language of the Bible.
      
  • The Bible in many verses uses "right hand" and "right eye" expressions for people and for GOD Almighty.
      
  • None of these are Signs to anything.

  • The ONE-EYED Dajjal's Signs and Powers according to Islam.
      

  • Also visit: 9/11 was 100% an Israeli Mossad Operation!

  • Many references of this Hadith (Saying) exist throughout our Islamic Texts.  This is one of the most popular Hadiths and Prophecies of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.  And indeed, we are seeing it come to pass before our very eyes.  Please also visit:

  • The hijacked Bible.
