The Quran, Bible and Torah

Whilst carrying out my research into the Miracles within the Qur’an, it was not just miracles I gained knowledge on but also found many raising various questions, the common questions were:

1) What about the Bible, what about the Torah?
2) Are they incorrect?
3) Who was Jesus (pbuh)?
4) Who was Moses (pbuh)?
5) Were they not important?
6) Were the Bible and Torah the words of God
7) Why were the Bible and Torah not preserved like the Qur’an is?

The Qur’an mentions three other scriptures within it’s verses which include The Bible and The Torah and the Prophets, including Jesus and Moses (Peace Be Upon Them). Christians believe Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) is God, The Son Of God and the Holy Spirit whereas Muslims believe Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) was one of the greatest messengers of God, but not God himself. So yes, Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) is a very important part of Islam and Muslims love him but do not worship him as God.

Muslims believe Jesus did not claim divinity, nor did he say I am God or Worship me. The oldest Gospel was written after Jesus (pbuh) was raised to the Heavens by God. None of the writers of the Gosepels met Jesus (pbuh) so a lot of the verses state “according to”.  No where in the orginal testament or text highlighted in red did Jesus (pbuh) say he was God or where he said worship me.

According to muslims, Jesus (pbuh) did not say he was God or worship him. Muslims do not believe that Jesus (pbuh) was the Son of God, Mary was the mother of God and also the daughter of God. Muslims believe the original scripture revealed to Jesus (pbuh) was indeed sent down by God (Allah) but do not believe the Gospels/New versions which were written years later.

One of the verses within the Qur’an mentions. the below verse. There are many more verses which mention the prophets (Peace Be Upon Them All)

“Say: we believe in God and in what has been revealed to us, and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma’il: Isaac, Jacob and The Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus and the Prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another, among them, and to God do we bow our will (in Islam).”
(Qur’an, 3:84)

So what about the Bible and the Torah?
The revelations revealed to Jesus and Moses (Peace Be Upon Them) were the Word of God (Allah), but Muslims believe that the new testaments have been changed over time. Whereas the Qur’an remains in it’s original language and unchanged for over 1400 years.

God (Allah), has mentioned that the Qur’an will be protected from corruption and the miracle is that the Qur’an has not been changed as God promised.

This is why today the Qur’an has been preserved in it’s original form and also memorised in it’s original language by millions from around the World. I found many sites trying to prove this incorrect, but it was clear they were desperate to prove the Qur’an incorrect but continue to fail miserably.

So why were the other original scriptures not preserved if they were the Word of God (Allah)?
Muslims believe that the old scriptures when revealed to Jesus and Moses (Peace Be Upon Them) were the word of God (Allah), but God (Allah) never preserved them because they were revealed for the people of that time and not for the whole of Humanity.

The Qur’an mentions in several verses, that it is meant for all of Humanity. This is why today, the Qur’an continues to reveal signs which match modern science and keeps up with us even today. I would like to clear at this point that the Qur’an is not a book of science but a book of signs.

Another question which I came across, Was the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) the founder of Islam 1400 years ago?

Millions of people seem to think Islam was only discovered 1400 years ago by the Prophet Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Him). Islam was not discovered 1400 years ago, but has always existed, the Qur’an was the final message and the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was the final messenger of Allah (God). Jesus and Moses (Peace Be Upon Them) were also messengers. There were thousands of messengers but God has only mentioned the most recent.

God mentioned within the Quran, He will protect the Quran from corruption. This is why today you will find the Qur’an the same around the World. Millions have revised the Arabic off by heart which shows Allah (God) chose the language wisely. If we turn to the other scriptures, they were written in different languages such as the Bible’s original form was Ancient Hebrew/Greek but not many speak or read the language today. This is another sign to Muslims, that the Bible was sent down for the people of that time and not the whole of Humanity.

If a change was to occur within the Qur’an today, it would be noticed by millions of Muslims around the world who have revised the complete Qur’an off by heart.

Another common question is, The Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) made up the Qur’an. If you carry out your research as I did, you will find that the Qur’an could not have been made up. This was one of the reasons which inspired me to create this website. The Qur’an continues to reveal signs which could not have been known by humans over 1400 years ago, including the Universe, Human Creation, The Water Cycle and much more in such great detail that no one could have known at the time. If it was made up, it would today include many mistakes and Muslims would start questioning the verses.

Finally, another question you may come across, The Qur’an was copied from the Bible. Muslims believe the original Bible when revealed to Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him) was the word from God (Allah). The Qur’an was the final message, so of course the books will be similar but the Qur’an includes updated information from God for the whole of Humanity and thousands of signs which do not exist in the Bible. Basically, the Qur’an is seen as the final version.

The Miracle Of The Qur’an

All that we have seen so far shows us one clear fact that the Qur’an is such a book that all the news related in it has proved to be true over the years and continues to stay ahead of us and modern science. Facts about scientific subjects and the news given about the future, facts that no one could have known at the time the Qur’an was revealed. It is impossible for this information to have been known with the level of knowledge and technology which was available over 1400 years ago.

In the 7th century, when the Qur’an was revealed, Arab society had many superstitious and groundless beliefs where scientific issues were concerned. Lacking the technology to examine the universe and nature, early Arabs believed in legends inherited from past generations. They believed the mountains supported the sky above. They believed that the earth was flat and that there were high mountains at both ends like pillars which supported the sky. However all these superstitious beliefs of Arab society were eliminated with the Qur’an. The verse mentions:

“It was said: “God is He who raised up the heavens without any support.” (Qur’an, 38:2)

This verse confirmed the belief that the sky does not remain above because of the mountains. In many other subjects, important facts were revealed at a time which no one could have known at the time.

In one of the verses within the Qur’an, it’s mentioned we will not find any inconsistencies within the Qur’an.

“If it had been from other than God, they would have found many inconsistencies  in it.” (Qur’an, 4:82)

Not only are there no inconsistencies within the Qur’an, but every piece of information it contains coninues to reveal the miracles of this divine book and will continue to do so.

In the year 1976, a lecture was given which was located at the French Academy of Medicine. The lecture title was Physiological and Embryological data in the Qur’an and was delivered by a French physician Dr Maurice Bucaille. His reason for hosting the lecture was that “our knowledge of these disciplines is such, that it is impossible to explain how a text produced at the time of the Qur’an could have contained ideas that have only been discovered in modern times.”

The citations included in this pamphlet appeared in the Qur’an during the 7th century CE. The Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was himself illiterate and was living among illiterate people. The Arabs at that time worshipped idols and believed in horoscope and magic and were superstitious. The Arabs very actively opposed the teachings advanced by the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) through his revelations.

Many scientists have reverted to Islam since discovering verses within the Qur’an which they know could not have been known over 1400 years ago.

What falls to man is to hold fast to this divine book revealed by God (Allah), and receive it as his one and only guide. One of the verses mentions:

“And this is a Book We have sent down and blessed, so follow it and have fear of God so that hopefully you will gain mercy.” (Qur’an, 6:155)

In other verses, God mentions:

“Say: ‘It is the truth from your Lord. Let anyone who wishes to, believe, and let anyone who wishes to, disbelieve.'”
(Qur’an, 18:29)

Another verse mentions:

“No indeed! Truly it (the Qur’an) is a reminder, and whoever wills pays heed to it.” (Qur’an, 80:11-12)

Another verse mentions:

“Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.” (Qur’an, 15:9)

Another verse mentions:

“Behold! In the creation Of the heavens and the earth, And the alternation Of Night and Day – There are indeed Signs For men of understanding.” (Qur’an 3:190)

Another verse mentions:

“We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?” (Quran, 41:53)

The Qur’an, 1400 years later continues to show its signs to humans and the amazing part is, a 1400 year old book continues to keep up with us. God planned all perfectly.

I found that the Qur’an is like an instruction manual for the humans and if followed correctly leads one to being a good human being. The Qur’an includes solutions for everything we face in life. Definetly a solution for humanity.

Does Islam Preach Hatred? Are Muslims Bad?
Due to the issues occuring around the World and from what you may read on the Internet, lots assume Islam is Evil and preaches hatred. This is not the case, as from the research I have carried out, Islam teaches peace and respect. Have a read of Are Muslims Bad People? which should hopefully clear any misunderstandings you have about Muslims and Islam.

The Barrier Between The Two Seas

Another miracle mentioned within the Qur’an is the barrier between the two seas. Yes, both sea’s have their own temperature, salinity and density. No matter how much they clash, the large waves and tides, you will discover the sea’s as two, as if there is an invisible barrier between them.

 Figure 1 above:The Mediterranean sea water enters the Atlantic over 
the Gibraltar sill with its own warm, saline, and less dense 
characteristics because of the barrier that exists between them.  
Diagram from Marine Geology, Kuenen.

The Qur’an mentions:

“It is He Who has Let free the two bodies Of flowing water: One palatable and sweet, And the other salty and bitter; Yet has He Made a barrier between them, And a partition that is forbidden To be passed.” (Qur’an 25:53)

Other translations of above verse:
Sahih International: And it is He who has released [simultaneously] the two seas, one fresh and sweet and one salty and bitter, and He placed between them a barrier and prohibiting partition.
Pickthall: And He it is Who hath given independence to the two seas (though they meet); one palatable, sweet, and the other saltish, bitter; and hath set a bar and a forbidding ban between them.
Yusuf Ali: It is He Who has let free the two bodies of flowing water: One palatable and sweet, and the other salt and bitter; yet has He made a barrier between them, a partition that is forbidden to be passed.
Shakir: And He it is Who has made two seas to flow freely, the one sweet that subdues thirst by its sweetness, and the other salt that burns by its saltness; and between the two He has made a barrier and inviolable obstruction.
Muhammad Sarwar: It is He who has joined the two seas; one palatable and sweet, the other bitterly salty and has established a barrier between them as a partition.
Mohsin Khan: And it is He Who has let free the two seas (kinds of water), one palatable and sweet, and the other salt and bitter, and He has set a barrier and a complete partition between them.
Arberry: And it is He who let forth the two seas, this one Sweet, grateful to taste, and this salt, bitter to the tongue, and He set between them a barrier, and a ban forbidden.

I was amazed when I got to know about the two sea’s which do not mix. During a period when there was little knowledge of physics, and of surface tension, or Oceanography, this truth was revealed in the Qur’an

We ask for miracles, their mentioned within the Qur’an, the parting of the two sea’s being one of them, but we still deny or look for information to prove the verses incorrect. If this is not enough, the magic continues, the Qur’an reveals many more signs to us which will amaze you.
