TEN MOST COMMON QUESTIONS
ASKED BY CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES AGAINST ISLAM
by Dr. Zakir Naik
FROM THE BIBLE :
Is it not true that Prophet
Muhammad (pbuh) has copied the Qur’an from the Bible?
Many critics allege that
Prophet Muhummad (pbuh) himself was not the author of the Qur’an but he
learnt it and/or plagiarised (copied or adapted) it from other human
sources or from previous scriptures or revelations.
MUHUMMAD LEARNT THE QUR’AN FROM A ROMAN BLACKSMITH WHO WAS A CHRISTIAN
Some Pagans accused the
Prophet of learning the Qur’an from a Roman Blacksmith, who was a
Christian staying at the outskirts of Makkah. The Prophet very often used
to go and watch him do his work. A revelation of the Qur’an was sufficient
to dismiss this charge - the Qur’an says in Surah An-Nahl chapter 16 verse
"We know indeed that they
say, ‘It is a man that teaches him,’ The tongue of him they wickedly point
to is notably foreign, while this is Arabic, pure and clear."
How could a person whose
mother tongue was foreign and could hardly speak little but of poor broken
Arabic be the source of the Qur’an which is pure, eloquent, fine Arabic?
To believe that the blacksmith taught the Prophet the Qur’an is some what
similar to believing that a Chinese immigrant to England, who did not know
proper English, taught Shakespeare.
MUHUMMAD (PBUH) LEARNT FROM WARAQA - THE RELATIVE OF KHADIJAH (RA)
Muhummad’s (pbuh) contacts with the Jewish and Christian Scholars were
very limited. The most prominent Christian known to him was an old blind
man called Waraqa ibn-Naufal who was a relative of the Prophet’s first
wife Khadijah (r.a.). Although of Arab descent, he was a convert to
Christianity and was very well versed with the New Testament. The Prophet
only met him twice, first when Waraqa was worshipping at the Kaaba (before
the Prophetic Mission) and he kissed the Prophet’s forehead
affectionately; the second occasion was when the Prophet went to meet
Waraqa after receiving the first revelation. Waraqa died three years later
and the revelation continued for about 23 years. It is ridiculous to
assume that Waraqa was the source of the contents of the Qur’an.
PROPHET’S RELIGIOUS DISCUSSIONS WITH THE JEWS AND CHRISTIANS
is true that the Prophet did have religious discussions with the Jews and
Christians but they took place in Madinah more than 13 years after the
revelation of the Qur’an had started. The allegation that these Jews and
Christians were the source is perverse, since in these discussions Prophet
Muhammad (pbuh) was performing the roles of a teacher and of a preacher
while inviting them to embrace Islam and pointing out that they had
deviated from their true teachings of Monotheism. Several of these Jews
and Christians later embraced Islam.
THE PROPHET LEARNT THE QUR’AN FROM THOSE JEWS AND CHRISTIANS THAT HE
MET OUTSIDE ARABIA
historical records available show that Muhummad (pbuh) had made only three
trips outside Makkah before his Prophethood:
the age of 9 he accompanied his mother to Madinah.
the age of 9 and 12, he accompanied his uncle Abu-Talib on a business
trip to Syria.
age of 25 he led Khadija’s Caravan to Syria.
It is highly imaginary to
assume that the Qur’an resulted from the occasional chats and meetings
with the Christians or Jews from any of the above three trips.
LOGICAL GROUNDS TO PROVE THAT THE PROPHET DID NOT LEARN THE QUR’AN FROM
JEWS OR CHRISTIANS
- The day-to-day life of
the Prophet was an open book for all to see. In fact a revelation came
asking people to give the Prophet (pbuh) privacy in his own home. If the
Prophet had been meeting people who told him what to say as a revelation
from God, this would not have been hidden for very long.
- The extremely prominent
Quraish nobles who followed the Prophet and accepted Islam were wise and
intelligent men who would have easily noticed anything suspicious about
the way in which the Prophet brought the revelations to them - more so
since the Prophetic mission lasted 23 years.
- The enemies of the
Prophet kept a close watch on him in order to find proof for their claim
that he was a liar - they could not point out even a single instance
when the Prophet may have had a secret rendezvous with particular Jews
- It is inconceivable that
any human author of the Qur’an would have accepted a situation in which
he received no credit whatsoever for originating the Qur’an.
Thus, historically and
logically it cannot be established that there was a human source for the
MUHUMMAD (PBUH) WAS AN
The theory that
Muhummad (pbuh) authored the Qur’an or copied from other sources can be
disproved by the single historical fact that he was illiterate.
Allah testifies Himself in
In Surah Al-Ankabut chapter no.29 verse 48
"And thou was not (able) to
recite a Book before this (Book came), nor art thou (able) to transcribe
it with thy right hand: in that case, indeed, would the talkers of
vanities have doubted."
Allah (swt) knew that many
would doubt the authenticity of the Qur’an and would ascribe it to Prophet
Muhummad (pbuh). Therefore Allah in His Divine Wisdom chose the last and
final Messenger to be an ‘Ummi’, i.e. unlettered, so that the talkers of
vanity would not then have the slightest justification to doubt the
Prophet. The accusation of his enemies that he had copied the Qur’an from
other sources and rehashed it all in a beautiful language might have
carried some weight, but even this flimsy pretence has been deprived to
the unbeliever and the cynic.
Allah reconfirms in the
Qur’an in Surah Al A’raf chapter 7 verse 157:
"Those who follow the
Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own
(Scriptures) in the Law and the Gospel"
The prophecy of coming of
the unlettered Prophet (pbuh) is also mentioned in the Bible in the book
of Isaiah chapter 29 verse 12.
"And the book is delivered
to him that is not learned."
The Qur’an testifies in no
less than four different places that the Prophet (pbuh) was illiterate. It
is also mentioned in Surah A’raf chapter 7 verse 158 and in Surah Al-Jumu’a
chapter 62 verse 2.
ARABIC VERSION OF THE BIBLE WAS NOT PRESENT
The Arabic version of
the Bible was not present at the time of Prophet Muhummad (pbuh). The
earliest Arabic version of the Old Testament is that of R. Saadias Gaon of
900 C.E. - more than 250 years after the death of our beloved Prophet. The
oldest Arabic version of the new Testament was published by Erpenius in
1616 C.E. - about a thousand years after the demise of our Prophet.
SIMILARITIES IN THE QUR’AN AND THE BIBLE DUE TO COMMON SOURCE
the Qur’an and the Bible does not necessarily mean that the former has
been copied from the latter. In fact it gives evidence that both of them
are based on a common third source; all divine revelations came from the
same source - the one universal God. No matter what human changes were
introduced into some of these Judeo-Christian and other older religious
scriptures that had distorted their originality, there are some areas that
have remained free from distortion and thus are common to many religions.
It is true that there are
some similar parallels between the Qur’an and the Bible but this is not
sufficient to accuse Muhummad (pbuh) of compiling or copying from the
Bible. The same logic would then also be applicable to teachings of
Christianity and Judaism and thus one could wrongly claim that Jesus (pbuh)
was not a genuine Prophet (God forbid) and that he simply copied from the
The similarities between
the two signify a common source that is one true God and the continuation
of the basic message of monotheism and not that the later prophets have
plagiarised from the previous prophets.
If someone copies during an
examination he will surely not write in the answer sheet that he has
copied from his neighbour or Mr. XYZ. Prophet Muhummad (pbuh) gave due
respect and credit to all the previous prophets (pbut). The Qur’an also
mentions the various revelations given by Almighty God to different
MUSLIMS BELIEVE IN THE TAURAH, ZABOOR, INJEEL AND QUR’AN
Four revelations of
Allah (swt) are mentioned by name in the Qur’an: the Taurah, the Zaboor,
the Injeel and the Qur’an.
revelation i.e. the Wahi given to Moosa (a. s.) i.e. Moses (pbuh).
Zaboor, the revelation i.e. the Wahi given to Dawood (a.s.) i.e.
Injeel, the revelation i.e. the Wahi given to Isa (A.S.) ie. Jesus
‘Al-Qur’an’, the last and final Wahi i.e. revelation given to the last and
final Messenger Muhammad (pbuh).
It is an article of faith
for every Muslim to believe in all the Prophets of God and all revelations
of God. However, the present day Bible has the first five books of the Old
Testament attributed to Moses and the Psalms attributed to David. Moreover
the New Testament or the four Gospels of the New Testament are not the
Taurah, the Zaboor or the Injeel, which the Qur’an refers to. These books
of the present day Bible may partly contain the word of God but these
books are certainly not the exact, accurate and complete revelations given
to the prophets.
The Qur’an presents all the
different prophets of Allah as belonging to one single brotherhood; all
had a similar prophetic mission and the same basic message. Because of
this, the fundamental teachings of the major faiths cannot be
contradictory, even if there has been a considerable passage of time
between the different prophetic missions, because the source of these
missions was one: Almighty God, Allah. This is why the Qur’an says that
the differences which exist between various religions are not the
responsibility of the prophets, but of the followers of these prophets who
forgot part of what they had been taught, and furthermore, misinterpreted
and changed the scriptures. The Qur’an cannot therefore be seen as a
scripture which competes with the teachings of Moses, Jesus and the other
prophets. On the contrary, it confirms, completes and perfects the
messages that they brought to their people.
Another name for the Qur’an
is the ‘The Furqan’ which means the criteria to judge the right from the
wrong, and it is on the basis of the Qur’an that we can decipher which
part of the previous scriptures can be considered to be the word of God.
SCIENTIFIC COMPARISON BETWEEN QUR’AN AND BIBLE
If you glance through
the Bible and the Qur’an you may find several points which appear to be
exactly the same in both of them, but when you analyse them closely, you
realise that there is a difference of ‘chalk and cheese’ between them.
Only based on historical details it is difficult for someone who is
neither conversant with Christianity or Islam to come to a firm decision
as to which of the scriptures is true; however if you verify the relevant
passages of both the scriptures against scientific knowledge, you will
yourself realize the truth.
Creation of the Universe in Six Days
As per the Bible, in the first book of Genesis in Chapter One, the
universe was created in six days and each day is defined as a
twenty-four hours period. Even though the Qur’an mentions that the
universe was created in six ‘Ayyaams’, ‘Ayyaam’ is the plural of years;
this word has two meanings: firstly, it means a standard twenty-four
hours period i.e. a day, and secondly, it also means stage, period or
epoch which is a very long period of time.
Qur’an mentions that the universe was created in six ‘Ayyaams’, it
refers to the creation of the heavens and the earth in six long periods
or epochs; scientists have no objection to this statement. The creation
of the universe has taken billions of years, which proves false or
contradicts the concept of the Bible which states that the creation of
the Universe took six days of twenty-four hour durations each.
Sun Created After the Day
The Bible says in chapter 1, verses 3-5, of Genesis that the phenomenon
of day and night was created on the first day of creation of the
Universe by God. The light circulating in the universe is the result of
a complex reaction in the stars; these stars were created according to
the Bible (Genesis chapter 1 verse 14 to 19) on the fourth day. It is
illogical to mention the result that is the light (the phenomenon of day
and night) was created on the first day of Creation when the cause or
source of the light was created three days later. Moreover the existence
of evening and morning as elements of a single day is only conceivable
after the creation of the earth and its rotation around the sun. In
contrast with the contents of the Bible on this issue, the Qur’an does
not give any unscientific sequence of Creation. Hence it is absolutely
absurd to say that Prophet Muhummad (pbuh) copied the passages
pertaining to the creation of the universe from the Bible but missed out
this illogical and fantastic sequence of the Bible.
Creation of the Sun, The Earth and the Moon
According to the Bible, Book of Genesis, chapter 1, verses 9 to 13, the
earth was created on the third day, and as per verses 14 to 19, the sun
and the moon were created on the fourth day. The earth and the moon
emanated, as we know, from their original star, the Sun. Hence to place
the creation of the sun and the moon after the creation of the earth is
contrary to the established idea about the formation of the solar
Vegetation Created on the third day and Sun on the fourth day
According to the Bible, Book of Genesis, chapter 1, verses 11-13,
vegetation was created on the third day along with seed-bearing grasses,
plants and trees; and further on as per verses 14-19, the sun was
created on the fourth day. How is it scientifically possible for the
vegetation to have appeared without the presence of the sun, as has been
stated in the Bible?
Prophet Muhummad (pbuh) was indeed the author of the Qur’an and had
copied its contents from the Bible, how did he manage to avoid the
factual errors that the Bible contains? The Qur’an does not contain any
statements which are incompatible with scientific facts.
and the Moon both Emit light
According to the Bible both the sun and the moon emit their own light.
In the Book of Genesis, chapter 1, verse 16 says, "And God made two
great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to
rule the night".
tells us today that the moon does not have its own light. This confirms
the Qur’anic concept that the light of the moon is a reflected light. To
think that 1400 years ago, Prophet Muhummad (pbuh) corrected these
scientific errors in the Bible and then copied such corrected passages
in the Qur’an is to think of something impossible.
ADAM (PBUH), THE FIRST MAN ON EARTH, LIVED 5,800 YEARS AGO
As per the genealogy of
Jesus Christ given in the Bible, from Jesus through Abraham (pbuh) to the
first man on earth i.e. Adam (pbuh), Adam appeared on the earth
approximately 5800 years ago:
- 1948 years between Adam
(pbuh) and Abraham (pbuh)
- Approximately 1800 years
between Abraham (pbuh) and Jesus (pbuh)
- 2000 years from Jesus (pbuh)
These figures are further
confused by the fact that the Jewish calendar is currently on or about
5800 years old.
There is sufficient
evidence from archaeological and anthropological sources to suggest that
the first human being on earth was present tens of thousands of years ago
and not merely 5,800 years ago as is suggested by the Bible.
The Qur’an too speaks about Adam (pbuh) as the first man on earth but it
does not suggest any date or period of his life on earth, unlike the Bible
- what the Bible says in this regard is totally incompatible with science.
NOAH (PBUH) AND THE FLOOD
description of the flood in Genesis chapter 6, 7 and 8 indicates that the
deluge was universal and it destroyed every living thing on earth, except
those present with Noah (pbuh) in the ark. The description suggests that
the event took place 1656 years after the creation of Adam (pbuh) or 292
years before the birth of Abraham, at a time when Noah (pbuh) was 600
years old. Thus the flood may have occurred in the 21st or 22nd Century
This story of the flood, as
given in the Bible, contradicts scientific evidence from archaelogical
sources which indicate that the eleventh dynasty in Egypt and the third
dynasty in Babylonia were in existence without any break in civilisation
and in a manner totally unaffected by any major calamity which may have
occurred in the 21st century B.C. This contradicts the Biblical story that
the whole world had been immersed in the flood water. In contrast to this,
the Qur’anic presentation of the story of Noah and the flood does not
conflict with scientific evidence or archaeological data; firstly, the
Qur’an does not indicate any specific date or year of the occurance of
that event, and secondly, according to the Qur’an the flood was not a
universal phenomenon which destroyed complete life on earth. In fact the
Qur’an specifically mentions that the flood was a localised event only
involving the people of Noah.
It is illogical to assume
that Prophet Muhummad (pbuh) had borrowed the story of the flood from the
Bible and corrected the mistakes before mentioning it in the Qur’an.
MOSES (PBUH) AND PHARAOH
OF THE EXODUS
The story of Moses (pbuh)
and the Pharaoh of the Exodus are very much identical in the Qur’an and
the Bible. Both scriptures agree that the Pharaoh drowned when he tried to
pursue Moses (pbuh) and led the Israelites across a stretch of water that
they crossed. The Qur’an gives an additional piece of information in Surah
Yunus chapter 10 verse 92:
"This day shall We save
thee in thy body, that thou mayest be a sign to those who come after thee!
But verily, many among mankind are heedless of Our Signs!"
Dr. Maurice Bucaille, after
a thorough research proved that although Rameses II was known to have
persecuted the Israelites as per the Bible, he actually died while Moses (pbuh)
was taking refuge in Median. Rameses II’s son Merneptah who succeeded him
as Pharaoh drowned during the exodus. In 1898, the mummified body of
Merneptah was found in the valley of Kings in Egypt. In 1975, Dr. Maurice
Bucaille with other doctors received permission to examine the Mummy of
Merneptah, the findings of which proved that Merneptah probably died from
drowning or a violent shock which immediately preceeded the moment of
drowning. Thus the Qur’anic verse that we shall save his body as a sign,
has been fulfilled by the Pharaohs’ body being kept at the Royal Mummies
room in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
This verse of the Qur’an
compelled Dr. Maurice Bucaille, who was a Christian then, to study the
Qur’an. He later wrote a book ‘The Bible, the Qur’an and Science’, and
confessed that the author of the Qur’an can be no one else besides God
Himself. Thus he embraced Islam.
QUR’AN IS A BOOK FROM ALLAH
These evidences are
sufficient to conclude that the Qur’an was not copied from the Bible, but
that the Qur’an is the Furqaan - ‘the Criteria’ to judge right from
wrong and it should be used to decipher which portion of the Bible may be
considered as the Word of God.
The Qur’an itself testifies
in Surah Sajda chapter 32 verse 1 to 3
Alif Laam Meem.
(This is) the revelation of
the Book in which there is no doubt – from the Lord of the Worlds.
Or do they say, ‘He has
forged it’? Nay, it is the Truth from thy Lord, that thou mayest admonish
a people to whom no warner has come before thee: in order that they may
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MARY AND MIRIAM
It is mentioned in your
Qur’an that Mary was the sister of Aaron (pbuh). Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
who wrote the Qur’an did not know the difference between Miriam the sister
of Aaron (pbuh) and Mary the Mother of Jesus (pbuh), the time span between
both of them was about a thousand years.
IN THE SEMITIC LANGUAGES
SISTER ALSO MEANS DESCENDANT
The Qur’an mentions in
Surah Maryam, Chapter 19 verses 27-28
"At length she brought the
(babe) to her people, carrying him (in her arms). They said: ‘O Mary!
Truly an amazing thing hast thou brought!
O sister of Aaron! Thy
father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!’"
Christian missionaries say
that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did not know the difference between Mary the
mother of Jesus (pbuh) and Miriam the sister of Aaron (pbuh). The time
span between both was more than a thousand years.
In the Arabic construction
of the sentence, sister is also considered as a descendant. Thus, when the
people said to Mary, Ukhta Haroon i.e. ‘sister of Aaron’ it
actually means descendant of Aaron (pbuh).
SON ALSO MEANS DESCENDANT
It is mentioned in the
Gospel of Mathew, Chapter 1 verse 1
"Jesus Christ, the son of
Gospel of Luke Chapter 3, verse 23
"And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was
supposed) the son of Joseph, ....."
DID JESUS (PBUH) HAVE
What do you call a
person who has two fathers? The explanation of the phrase that Jesus (pbuh)
was the son of David (pbuh), is that Jesus (pbuh) was a descendant of
David (pbuh). ‘Son’, here means a descendant.
JESUS (PBUH) DID NOT DIE
Is it not true that
your Qur’an mentions in Surah Maryam, Chapter 19 verse 33 that Jesus (pbuh)
died and was resurrected?
JESUS (PBUH) SAID, "THE
DAY THAT I DIE", NOT "THE DAY THAT I DIED"
It is mentioned in
Surah Maryam, Chapter 19 verse 33
"So Peace is on me the day
I was born, the day that I die and the Day that I shall be raised up to
The Qur’an mentions that
Jesus (pbuh) said "Peace is on me the Day I was born, the day that I die".
It is not stated "the day that I died". It is in the future tense and not
in the past tense.
JESUS (PBUH) WAS RAISED UP ALIVE
The Qur’an further says
in Surah Nisa, Chapter 4 verse 157-158:
"That they said (in boast),
‘We killed Jesus Christ the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah’ – But
they killed him not, Nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to
them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain)
knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him
Nay, Allah raised him up
unto Himself; and Allah is exalted in Power, Wise."
JESUS IS "A WORD" OF
ALLAH AND A "SPIRIT" FROM ALLAH
Does not your Qur’an
mention that Jesus is Kalimatullah –"The Word of Allah (swt)", as
well as Ruhullah – "The Spirit of Allah", indicating his Divinity?
JESUS (PBUH) "IS A WORD FROM ALLAH" NOT "THE WORD OF ALLAH"
The Qur’an mentions in
Surah Ali ‘Imran Chapter 3 verse 45
"Behold! The angels said: O
Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be
Christ Jesus. The son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the
Hereafter and of (the company of) those Nearest to Allah.
Jesus (pbuh) is referred in
the Qur’an as a word from Allah and not as ‘the word of Allah’.
"A word" of Allah means a
message of Allah. If a person is referred to as "a word" from Allah, it
means that he is a Messenger or a Prophet of Allah.
THE TITLE OF A PROPHET (PBUH)
DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT EXCLUSIVELY BELONGS TO THAT PROPHET (PBUH)
Different titles are
given to different prophets (pbut). Whenever a title is given to a prophet
(pbuh), it does not necessarily mean that the other prophets do not have
the same characteristic or quality. For e.g. Prophet Abraham (pbuh) is
referred to in the Qur’an as Khaleelullah, a friend of Allah. This
does not indicate that all the other Prophets (pbuh) were not the friends
of Allah. Prophet Moses (pbuh) is referred to in the Qur’an as
Kaleemullah, indicating that God spoke to him. This does not mean that
God did not speak to others. Similarly when Jesus (pbuh) is referred to in
the Qur’an as Kalimatullah, "a word from Allah", it does not mean
that the other Prophets were not "the word," of Allah.
JOHN THE BAPTIST (PBUH) IS ALSO CALLED "A WORD" OF ALLAH
Yahya (pbuh) i.e. John
the Baptist (pbuh) is also referred to in the Qur’an as Kalimatullah i.e.
a word of Allah in Surah Ali ‘Imran, Chapter 3, verses 38-39
"There did Zakariya Pray to
his Lord, saying: "O my Lord! Grant unto me from Thee a progeny that is
pure: for Thou art He that heareth prayer!
While he was standing in
prayer in the chamber, the angels called unto him: "Allah doth give thee
glad tidings of Yahya, witnessing the truth of a Word from Allah, and (be
besides) noble, chaste, and a Prophet – of the (goodly) company of the
JESUS (PBUH) REFERRED
AS RUHULLAH – A SPIRIT OF ALLAH
Jesus (pbuh) also never
referred to as Ruhullah "a spirit of Allah" but as a spirit from Allah in
Surah Nisa Chapter 4 verse 171
"O People of the Book!
Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of Allah aught but the truth.
Jesus Christ the son of Mary was (no more than) a Messenger of Allah, And
His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so
believe in Allah and His Messengers. Say not ‘Trinity’: desist: it will be
better for you: for Allah is One God: glory be to Him: (Far Exalted is He)
above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth.
And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs."
SPIRIT OF ALLAH IS BREATHED IN EVERY HUMAN BEING
A spirit from Allah
does not indicate that Jesus (pbuh) is God. The Qur’an mentions in several
places that Allah breathed into the human beings "His Spirit" in Surah Al-Hijr,
chapter 15 verse 29 in Surah Sajdah, chapter 32 verse 9
Surah Al Hijr Chapter 15
"When I have fashioned him
(in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall ye down in
obeisance unto him."
Surah Sajdah Chapter 32
"But He fashioned him in
due proportion, and breathed into him something of His spirit. And He gave
you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding):
little thanks do ye give!"
IS NOT THE QUR’AN WRITTEN BY SATAN?
The Qur’an is not the Word
of God but on the contrary the handiwork of Satan.
In reply to a similar
allegation put forward by the pagans of Makkah, that the prophet (pbuh)
received the revelations from Satan, the following verses were revealed:
Surah Waqiah, chapter 56
"That this is indeed
A Qur’an most honourable,
In a Book well-guarded,
Which none shall touch
But those who are clean:
A Revelation from the Lord
Of the Worlds."
means a book well guarded or a protected book, referring to Lauh-e-Mahfooz
in the heaven, which none shall touch except the Mutahhareen. i.e.
those who do not have any uncleanliness or impurity or evil like sin. This
refers to the angels. The satan is absolutely prohobited.
Thus since it is impossible
for satan to come anywhere close to it or touch it, the question of him
writing the verses of the Glorious Qur’an does not arise.
It is further mentioned in
Surah Shura, chapter 26 verse 210-212
"No evil ones have brought
Down this (Revelation):
It would neither suit them
Nor would they be able (To produce it).
Indeed they have been
Far from even (a chance of)
Many people have a wrong
concept of satan. They think that satan can probably do everything, except
a couple of things that God can do. According to them, satan is slightly
below God in power. Since the people do not want to accept that the Qur’an
is a miraculous revelation, they say that it is satan’s handiwork.
satan would have written the Qur’an, he would not have mentioned in the
same Qur’an in Surah Nahl, chapter 16 verse no. 98
thou does read
The Qur’an, seek Allah’s protection from Satan the Rejected One."
how you feel satan would write a book? Does he tell you; "Before you
read my book ask God to save you from me?"
are several verses in the Qur’an which will give enough evidence that
satan is not the author of the Qur’an.
Al Aaraf chapter 7 verse 200
suggestion from Satan assail your (mind),
seek refuge with Allah; for He hears and knows
satan tell his followers, that whenever he gives any suggestions to
them, they should seek refuge in Allah (swt) to whom he is an avowed
Surah Baqarah, chapter 2 verse 168
Eat of what is on earth, lawful and good;
and do not follow the footsteps of the Evil one,
For he is to you an avowed enemy."
Surah Yasin, chapter 36 verse 60
not enjoin on you,
O ye children of Adam,
that ye should not worship Satan;
he was to you an enemy avowed?"
intelligent, no wonder that he can put this idea into the minds of
people that he himself wrote the Qur’an. Compared to Almighty God, Satan
is insignificant, and Allah (swt) is far more intelligent. He knows
satan’s evil intentions and hence no wonder that He has given the reader
of the Qur’an several proofs to show that Qur’an is God’s word, and not
mentions in the Gospel of Mark, chapter 3, verses 24-26
"And if a
kingdom be divided against itself, that
kingdom cannot stand."
"And if a
house be divided against itself,
that house cannot stand."
Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath
