Al Maarri on the Prophets

“Do not suppose the statements of the prophets to be true; they are all fabrications. Men lived comfortably till they came and spoiled life. The sacred books are only such a set of idle tales as any age could have and indeed did actually produce.”

— أبو العلاء المعري

Al Maarri was a blind Arabic philosopher circa 1000 AD.
