Does The Noble Qur’an Confirms the Bible?

Does the Noble Qur’an Confirms the Bible?

Some Christians argued that the Bible were safeguarded by ALLAH(SWT) from corruption. What the Christians dont know or refused to acknowledge were the facts that First, one of the reasons Allah has sent Prophet Muhammad(saw) and the Noble Qur’an was because all the scriptures such Torah, Psalms, Gospels that came before it were either corrupted or lost. The Noble Qur’an says the following of the books that came before it:

“Know they not Allah Knoweth whatthey conceal and what they reveal? And there are among them illiterates, whoknow not the Book but (see therein their own) desires, and they do nothing butconjecture. Then woe tothose who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: ‘This is fromAllah,’ to traffic with it for a miserable price! Woe to them for whattheir hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby.” (The Noble Qur’an, 2:77-79)

The Noble Qur’an clearly says that the Book was corrupted by men, “those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: ‘This is from Allah,”. It can’t get any clearer then that!

Now,as we  can see from the above verses the Qur’an clearly stated that the People of the Book have corrupted their own books.

But when challenged to produce their proof as to where in the Quran does Allah(swt) safeguarded the previous Scriptures, the Christians will gave the following verses:

 

(The Noble Qur’an, 2:97) “To thee (Muhammad) We sent the scripture (Qur’an) in truth confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety. Say: Whoever is the enemy of Jibreel — for surely he revealed it to your heart by Allah’s command, verifying that which IS before it and guidance and good news for the believers.”

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:82) “Nearest among them in love to the believers will thou find those who say “We are Christians” because amongst these are men devoted to learning.”

(The Noble Qur’an, 42:15) “I believe in the Book (of the People of the Book) which God has sent down…”

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:46) “And in their footsteps we sent Jesus the son of Mary confirming the Law that had come before him. We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law.”

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:47) “Letthe People of the Gospel judge by what God has revealed therein”

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:48) “To thee (Muhammad) We sent the scripture (Qur’an) in truth confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety.”

(The Noble Qur’an, 10:94) “If thou (Muhammad) are in doubt as to what We have revealed, then ask the People of the Book.”

Let us fathom each verses ;

(The Noble Qur’an, 2:97) “To thee (Muhammad) We sent the scripture(Qur’an) in truth confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety. Say: Whoever is the enemy of Jibreel — for surely he revealed it to your heart by Allah’s command, verifying that which IS before it and guidance and good news for the believers.”

I’ve highlighted the points Christians use to show their point.Without knowing that the Noble Qur’an clearly stated that the scriptures before it were corrupted by men (2:77-79), As such, the Christian can easily come to the conclusion that the Noble Qur’an confirms the Bible or safeguarded their Bible.

However, this is what the Christians failed to grasp : What the Qur’an talks about was  the True scriptures Allah(swt) has sent to those prophets before Muhammad(pbuh), and definitely not the corrupted Bible that they possessed now.

Let’smove on :

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:82) “Nearest among them in love to the believers will thou find those who say “We are Christians” because amongst these are men devoted to learning.”

Let’s look at the whole context;

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:82) Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, “We are Christians”: because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant.

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:83) And when they listen to the revelation received by the Messenger, thou wilt see their eyes overflowing with tears, for they recognize the truth: they pray:”Our Lord! We believe; write us down among the witnesses.

The first verse says that the you will find Jews and Pagans hate the believers(Muslims) the most. Next it says Christians are devoted to learning and they are not arrogant. The next verse says the Christians listen to the revelation(Qur’an) received by the Messenger(Prophet Mohammed(pbuh)) and “thou wilt see their eyes overflowing with tears, for they recognize the truth: they pray: “Our Lord! We believe; write us down among the witnesses. “

To sum those verses up, some of the Jews and Pagans are arrogant and harder to show the Truth and only some care to learn about the Truth, but among Christians there are definitely those who want to learn the Truth.

Anyway,I can’t make any contacts between the Bible and us having to read it in these verses. So let’s move on;

(The Noble Qur’an, 42:15) “Ibelieve in the Book (of the People of the Book) which God has sent down…”

Again,Qur’an makes it clear that it is talking about what Allah has sent down previously, and not the corrupted Bible. Let me bold the part;

(The Noble Qur’an, 42:15) “I believe in the Book (of the People of the Book) which God has sent down...”

Let’s move on;

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:46) “And in their footsteps we sent Jesus the son of Mary confirming the Law that had come before him. We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law.”

I think we are repeating a cycle. It is obvious the Gospel is not the 4 Gospels. Let me bold the important points;

(The Noble Qur’an, 5:46) “And in their footsteps we sent Jesus the son of Mary confirming the Law that had come before him. We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law.”

Answer these questions to your self. Are any of the Gospels told or narrated or written by Jesus(pbuh) him self? How many Gospels are there in the NT?

The current Gospels are supposed to be “inspired”by Jesus(pbuh) and God. In a sense, they claim to have written about the Gospel of Jesus(pbuh). Considering what the Noble Qur’an says(The Noble Qur’an, 2:77-79),I don’t think it needs further explanation.

We can also check what Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) said:

Narrated Ubaidullah:  “Ibn ‘Abbas said, ‘Why do you ask the people of the scripture about anything while your Book (Quran) which has been revealed to Allah’s Apostle(Prophet Muhammad) is newer and the latest? You read it pure,undistorted and unchanged, and Allah has told you that the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, ‘It is from Allah,’ to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have never seen any man from them asking you regarding what has been revealed to you!”(Translation of Sahih Bukhari,Holding Fast to the Qur’an and Sunnah, Volume 9, Book 92, Number 461)

Conclusion

The Noble Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) clearly refute this claim.

“The people of the Book used to read the Torah inHebrew and then explain it in Arabic to the Muslims. Allah’s Apostle said (tothe Muslims). ‘Do notbelieve the people of the Book, nor disbelieve them, but say, ‘We believe in Allah and whatever is revealed to us, and whateveris revealed to you.”(Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Holding Fast to theQur’an and Sunnah, Volume 9, Book 92, Number 460)
