The Contradiction of The Holy Qur'an And The Bible

Authenticity of the Bible

The belief in the original holy Books revealed to the Prophets before Prophet Muhammad ((pbuh) is one of the six pillars of the Faith in Islam:

Say o Muslim): “We believe in Allah and that which has been sent down to us and that which has been sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and to the Tribes, and that which has been given to Moses and Jesus, and that which has been given to the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we have submitted (in Islam).” (Qur’an, 2:136)

The Qur’an mentioned the names of some of these Books: Scriptures of Abraham, the Torah, the Zabur (Psalms and Gospel are still preserved in the Bible mixed with what people’s own hands wrote, as confirmed in the Qur’an:

Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say, “This is from Allah<” to purchase with it a little price! Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for that they earn thereby (Qur’AN, 2:79)

The original Torah and Gospel are the literal Words  of Allah revealed to his Propjets Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them – pbut), whereas the books of the Bible are merely narratives or stories written in the third person, i.e., the sayings and deeds of the Prophets were written by historians and not by the Prophet themselves. For example, the book of Deuteronomy is one of the five books attributed to Prophet Moses (pbuh). If this book was really by him, how could it mention his death:

And Moses the servant of the Lord died there in Moab, as the Lord had said. He buried him in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no-one knows where his graves is. Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died. (Deuteronomy 34:5-7)

The Gospel revealed to Propjet Jesus (pbuh) was lost and many gospels were written. The church chose four gospels (Mathew, Mark, Luke and John) and destroyed or banned the rest. Although these gospels include some fragments of the original Gospel, it is very clear that none of them is the Gospel of Prophet Jesus pbuh), because

  • All the four gospels contain many contradictions and errors while the Gospel of Prophet Jesus (pbuh) which is the word of Allah was free from contradictions and errors.

  • These gospels are different accounts of reports of the life of Prophet Jesus pbuh), written by men. They mention his birth, his alleged crucifixion and death, etc, which cannot be mentioned in the Gospel revealed to Prophet Jesus pbuh) during his mission.

Authenticity of the Qur’an

Allah has promised to protect the Qur’an from corruption and adulteration:

No doubt We have sent down the Qur’an and surely We will guard it (from corruption). (Qur’an, 15:9)

Allah has truly fulfilled His Promise and for more that fourteen hundred years, not a single word or even letter has been changed. The Qur’an exists in its original Arabic Text and not even mixed with the words of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). It is purely and completely the Word of Allah.

No honest scholat, Muslim or non-Muslim has ever raised any doubt about the purity and genuineness of the Qur’an,. The Qur’an has been transmitted to us in the most reliable ways. It was written down and learnt by heart by hundreds of people during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). One of the copies of the Qur’an which was written few years after the death of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is still in existence in Tashkent. Furthermore, since the time of Prophet Muhammmad (pbuh), thousands and hundreds of thousands of Muslims have memorized the Qur’an in succession.

And indeed We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in six days and nothing of fatigues touched Us. So bear with patience (O Muhammad) all that they say, and glorify the praises of your Lord, before the rising of the sun and before setting. And during a part of the night glorify His praises and after the prayers…

We are best aware of what they say. And you (O Muhammad) are not the one to force them (to belief; but warn by the Qur’an him who fears My threat. (Qur’an, 50:38-45)

Is not He best Who responds to the soul distresses when it calls on Him, and Who removes the evil, and makes inheritors of the earth? Is there any god with Allah? Little is that you heed! (Qur’an, 27:62)

Later I passed by, and whn I looked at you and say that you were old enough for love, I spread the corner of my garments over you and covered your nakedness… and you became mine…

But you trusted in your beauty and used your fame to become a prostitute… At the head of every street you built your lofty shrines and degraded your beauty, offering your body with increasing promiscuity to anyone who passed by …. You engaged inn prostitution with the Assyrians too, because you were insatiable…Then you increased your promiscuity… You adulterous wife! You prefer strangers to your own husband. ((Ezekiel 16:3-32)

What the Qur’an Says

And to warn those (Jews, Christians, and pagans) who say:

“Allah has begotten a son: No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. Grievous is the word that comes out of their moths. They utter nothing but a lie. Perhaps, you would kill yourself (O Muhammad) in grief, over their footsteps (for their turning away from you), because they believe no in this narration (the Qur’an. Qur’an, 18:4-6)

And the Jews and theChristians say: “We are the children of Allah and His loved ones.” Say: “Why does He punish you for your sins?” Nay, you are but human beings of those He has created, He forgives whom he wills and He punishes whom he wills. And to Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and he earth and all that is between them; and to Him is the return. (Qur’an,5:18)

And they (Jews, Christians and pagans) say: “Allah has begotten a son.” Glory is to him. Nay, to him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth, and all surrender with obedience (in worship) to Him. The Originator of the heavens and the earth. When he decrees matter, He only says to it: “Be” and it is. (Qur’an 2:16-17)

Say (O Muhammad): He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, to whom the creatures turn for their needs; He begets not, nor was He begotten; and there is none like unto Him (Qur’an 112:1-4)
