When Muslims go around telling christians that ‘the bible got corrupted’, they are testifying their lack of basic knowledge in their own religion (islam). And still, they want to teach christians about their book! See the level of arrogance here?
Let us all help the poor muslims to read their own book, so that they can see the truth of Allah.
Allah sent the Torah and the Gospel
It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Torah (Of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) Sura 3:3
And We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous. Sura 5:46
Say: “O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.” It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Faith. Sura 5:68
By reading these suras, we establish the following:
a) Allah sent the Torah and the Gospel (they are from Allah)
b) The quran confirms what was before it (The Torah and the Gospel)
c) There is guidance and light in the Gospel
d) There is guidance and instruction for the righteous in the Torah
Allah promised to protect the Torah and the Gospel
And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it, and a watcher over it. Sura 5:48
Here we see that Allah would watch over his scriptures. Now some muslims might argue that allah would only protect the quran. This does not make sense, since all scriptures are allah’s word. Secondly the tafsir clearly says that Allah protects all his scriptures.
(And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture) We have sent you Gabriel with the Qur’an (with the Truth) to make plain the Truth and falsehood, (confirming) the statement of Allah’s divine Oneness and some laws (whatever Scripture was before it) whatever Scriptures were before it, (and a watcher over it) a witness upon all the Scriptures before it; it is also said: a witness upon the ruling of stoning; and it is also said: a watcher over all previous Scriptures. Tafsir Ibn Abbas Sura 5:48
Allah confirms the Torah and the Gospel
O you who have been given the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Believe in what We have revealed (to Muhammad SAW) confirming what is (already) with you, before We efface faces (by making them like the back of necks; without nose, mouth, eyes) and turn them hindwards, or curse them as We cursed the Sabbath¬breakers. And the Commandment of Allâh is always executed. Sura 4:47 Dr. Mohsin
The quran is confirming the bible (2:89, 2:91, 2:97, 2:101, 3:3, 3:50, 5:46). Not the other way around as muslims would have it.
And if thou (Muhammad) art in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto thee, then question those who read the Scripture (that was) before thee. Verily the Truth from thy Lord hath come unto thee. So be not thou of the waverers. And be not thou of those who deny the revelations of Allah, for then wert thou of the losers. S. 10:94-95 Pickthall
As we can see in sura 10:94-95, it is clearly the bible that stands judge over the quran. Muhammad was to go to the people that read ‘the scripture before thee’ (meaning the jews and the christians) if he had any doubts.
Allah urges his followers to judge by the Gospel
Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel. Sura 5:47
Why would Allah ask his followers to judge by the Gospel if it is corrupted? We also saw in 5:46 that the Gospel contains ‘guidance and light’. In fact, sura 5:47 calls those who do not judge by the Gospel rebels!
Muhammad had access to the same bible
We have ample evidence from archeology that Muhammad had access to the same bible as we have today. This further debunks the theory that the bible has been corrupted.
No one can change the words of Allah
And the word of your Lord has been accomplished truly and justly; there is none who can change His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.” Sura 6:115
According to the quran, none can change the words of Allah. It does not say ‘the quran’. It says ‘His words’. But still, muslim claim (without support from their own quran) that people are able to change allah’s words.
In 1400 years, no one has proven this claim
The muslims have had over 1400 years of time proving that the bible has been corrupted. Ask any muslim to prove their claim. Not one can do it. I guess they need more time.
The islamic dilemma
Muslims have a huge problem here, since the quran contains so many verses contradicting the bible. It denies the diety, crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus. It thinks that the trinity in christianity consists of God, Mary and Jesus. It claims that Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible.
If all these claims are false, it proves that the quran is false. If they are true, it proves that the quran is false, since it claims to confirm the bible. This is called the islamic dilemma.
Ignorant muslims try to solve this by claiming that the bible must have been corrupted. By saying this, they suddenly have more knowledge in islam than their own prophet! Their claim is nowhere to be found in the quran, the hadiths or siras. Bu they also run into even more problems.
Maybe Allah got screwed?
Let us for the sake of the argument say that the bible got corrupted. As mentioned in the beginning of this article, the Torah and the Gospel was sent by Allah. If they got corrupted, who’s fault is it? It is Allah’s fault.
This simply means the following:
1. Allah got screwed
Humans screwed Allah big time.
2. Allah was not powerful enough
Allah was not powerful enough to protect his own word from human hands. What kind of weak God can not even protect his own words from being corrupted?
3. Maybe the quran is lying?
The quran is validating and confirming the bible big time. Either the quran and your prophet are right, or you are right. Which one is it?
4. Allah can not be God
Certainly not the one true God. Congratulations – this proves to all of us that Allah can not be the one true God.
