Allah had three daughters!
"In the original version of the Koran, Allah had three daughters. But as Islam grew more macho and misogynistic, the verses which referred to Allah's daughters were condemned as Satanic and removed. And Muslims would really rather they had never existed in the first place, because they seriously undermine Islam's claim to be monotheistic and the Koran's claim to be the infallible word of God.
So when Salman Rushdie brought the whole embarrassing episode into the light of day with his novel, he received a five-star fatwa from Muslim leaders and had to move from one hiding place to another in disguise. Needless to say the Muslims also rioted.
The Satanic verses affair was all the more enraging for Muslims in that for years their favorite taunt at Christians was 'God has no son', but here was the Muslim God with no fewer than three offspring!
And if one set of verses were recognized as Satanic, might there not be other diabolical passages in the Koran remaining undetected? In fact, who's to say that the entire tirade of venomous ranting and ravings hadn't originated from the Devil?" - Bamiyan
