Qur’an: abut sira
# The Qur'an says faces will turn black if the person is a sinner, and the face will turn white if the person is not.<ref>"''On the day when (some) faces shall turn white and (some) faces shall turn black; then as to those whose faces turn black: Did you disbelieve after your believing? Taste therefore the chastisement because you disbelieved.''" - {{Quran|3|106}}</ref><ref>"''And on the day of resurrection you shall see those who lied against Allah; their faces shall be blackened. Is there not in hell an abode for the proud?''" - {{Quran|39|60}}</ref> In the light of this, what will happen to black people?
# Islamic sources,<ref>Al-Tabari (838? – 923 A.D.), The History of al-Tabari (Ta’rikh al-rusul wa’l-muluk), Vol. VI: Muhammad at Mecca, pp. 107-112. Translated by W. M. Watt and M.V. McDonald, State University of New York Press, Albany, NY, 1988, ISBN: 0-88706-707-7, pp. 107-112.</ref><ref>Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Ishaq's Sirat Rasul Allah, Translated by A. Guillaume, Oxford University Press, Oxford, England, (Re-issued in Karachi, Pakistan, 1967, 13th impression, 1998) 1955, p. 146-148.</ref> including Sahih Hadith,<ref>{{Bukhari|6|60|385}} states, "''Narrated Ibn Abbas: The Prophet performed a prostration when he finished reciting Surat-an-Najm, and all the Muslims and pagans and Jinns and human beings prostrated along with him.''" Since in today's Qur'an, the Pagans' goddesses are attacked in that particular Surah, it would only make sense if the account of the Satanic Verses incident were true. </ref> confirm that Muhammad and the early Muslims were fooled by Satan who produced a counterfeit Qur'anic verse that was indistinguishable from the real thing (i.e. the "[[Satanic Verses]]" incident). Taking verse 2:23<ref>"''And if you are in doubt as to that which We have revealed to Our servant, then produce a chapter like it and call on your witnesses besides Allah if you are truthful. ''" - {{Quran|2|23}}</ref> with its "Surah like it" challenge into consideration, isn't the Qur'an discredited by its own criteria?
# Why are the ''sira'' (prophetic biography) books rarely available and rarely discussed online? Are Muslims embarrassed by the detailed biography of their prophet, including his innumerable crimes?
