ISLAM & PLAGIARIZM: Here is another classic example of plagiarizm by the authors of the Koran:Islam is the proven religen..all others are proven wrong
Harut & Marut:
2:102 - They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (Such things) without saying: "We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme.........."
Encylopedia Brittanica asserts that the story itself parallels a Jewish legend about the fallen angels Shehamzai, Uzza, & Aza'el. The names Harut & Marut appear to etymologically related to those of Harruvatat and Ameretat, Zoroastrian archangels. Even Abduallah Yusuf Ali acknowledges that the source of the story is probably from the Jewish Midrash.
