Qur'an 113:1[edit]

Say, “I take refuge with the Lord of Daybreak.

Qur'an 113:1 Notes[edit]

Sky-god, please don't let the evil satanic force you created and allow to wreak havoc on otherwise good people, choose me as one of his substantive body to posess and do horrible things against my will. I really prefer that doesn't happen, especially to me. Perhaps to no one?

Qur'an 113:2[edit]

From the evil of what He created.

Qur'an 113:2 Notes[edit]

The sky-god first created evil stuff and then out of that stuff created good stuff. It seems to be the case that they are interchangeable because good stuff can become evil stuff and evil stuff can become good stuff. Satan probably plays a notable role in the metamorphosis of good to evil, but certainly there are more forces at work. Perhaps innate human nature? Perhaps tyranical leaders that the sky-God does nothing stop...who reduce humans to ghastly deeds? Perhaps religious texts banning normal human stuff and demanding all sorts of grotesque violent horrible stuff?

Qur'an 113:3[edit]

And from the evil of the darkness as it gathers.

Qur'an 113:3 Notes[edit]

I wonder just how much dark intense evil you can cram into a tiny knot of thread.

Qur'an 113:4[edit]

And from the evil of those who practice sorcery.

Qur'an 113:4 Notes[edit]

In a case of helarious irony, doing strange irrational rituals to change fate is a bad thing. LOL

Qur'an 113:5[edit]

And from the evil of an envious when he envies.”

Qur'an 113:5 Notes[edit]

It's simply outrageous that ugly disabled stuttering sad Billy envies his tall broad shouldered charming football captain popular and loved brother. How dare he!!! Off to the fires!!!!!!!!!!
