Qur’an-goat ate page; 127 verses and verse on stoning lost


In the name of Allāh,
the Beneficent, the Merciful
Peace and Blessings of Allāh on Mohammad.
Allāh–the Glorious and the High,
Lord of the worlds
Mohammad–who brought the world
to our feet and eternity to our arms.

To prove the Qur’an is false, Christians note Hadith that a goat ate a page of the Qur’an resulting in a part of the Qur’an being lost; that according to ‘Aishah chapter 33 of the Qur’an had 200 verses but now only has 73 verses (127 verses is lost/unknown); and ‘Umar said there used to be a verse on stoning in the Qur’an.

Aside from Allāh’s vow to protect the Qur’an from corruption–(Qur’an 15:9; 56:77-80; 85:21-22; 5:48)- and Angel Gabriel rehearsing the Qur’an with the Prophet annually and twice in the last year of the Prophet’s life–(Bokhari Vol. 1, #5; Vol. 3, #126; Vol. 4, #754, 819). Upon its revelation the Qur’an was written down and memorized. At least three women ‘Aishah, Hafsah and Umm Salamah knew the Qur’an by heart as well as the venerable Caliphs –Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, Uthman and Ali– and notable Muslims such as Talhah, Sa’d, Ibn Ma’sud, Salim, and Abu Hurairah. (That more than a hundred Muslims who knew the Qur’an from memory were killed in battle and treachery, highlights how many Muslims knew the Qur’an by heart).

That the goat ate the page of the Qur’an. Did the goat also ate the heads of ‘Aishah, Hafsah and the other Muslims who knew the Qur’an from memory, so that that part of the Qur’an is lost forever? (Perhaps this page was one of many being assembled; in which case it had to be rewritten, that’s all).

That chapter 33 of the Qur’an originally had 200 verses but now has only 73. Did the Muslim stalwarts Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, Uthman, Ali, Talhah, Sa’d, Ibn Ma’sud, Salim, and Abu Hurairah in this stupendous moment also forgot these 127 verses; or tolerated a mutilated Qur’an; or conspired with ‘Aishah to keep them out of the Qur’an? (The same applies to those who charge that certain chapters do not belong in the Qur’an).

That the Caliph ‘Umar said there was a verse on “stoning” in what Allāh revealed and they used to stone after the death of the Prophet.
This could not relate to the Qur’an. ‘Umar knew the Qur’an from memory and in the order settled by Angel Gabriel with the Prophet.
In all likelihood what Umar was speaking about, if the hadith is authentic, was the Torah, which is also regarded as a Book of Allāh and which requires stoning to death.
Stoning after the death of the Prophet was of Jews who were to be punished according to the Torah. The Qur’an clearly prescribes lashes for zinaadultery and fornication. Stoning and lashes are contradictions.
(Muhammad Ali has dealt with this topic in his book The Religion of Islam, pp.730-735. www. muslim.org search under “2. Publications”). Muhammad Ali has given the history of the Qur’an in his Preliminary notes to his translation of the Qur’an which can be viewed/downloaded at www.muslim.org, and also background to verses; which Christians quote willy-nilly to prove the Qur’an is contradictory /false.

Verses could NOT be removed from the Qur’an after the Prophet’s rehearsing the Qur’an with Angel Gabriel and in a set order under the guidance of Allah. That which the Prophet rehearsed with Angel Gabriel and passed on to us through the Caliphs and which we have at present is the original Qur’an. And to the Resurrection.
Everything that was or should have been in the Qur’an and which is not to be in the Qur’an and that one chapter has to go before the other is MOOT. The Prophet is the only and the final authority on the Qur’an.
The Qur’an was handed down from generation to generation in text and recitation. While one can alter text one cannot alter recitation, and of thousands of Muslims, at least, and world-wide. This is how the Qur’an is preserved/guarded from corruption. And which memorization and scrupulous observation obviously led to the discovery of the “Fake American Qur’an” dumped in Kuwait and paraded online as The True Furqan.
They adulterate their Book of God left, right and centre and fumble the Qur’an. The anti-Islam deception is depthless and desperate. And Divinely doomed–(Qur’an 9:32; 61:8). Fourteen hundred years and the haters of truth are yet trying to put out the Light of Allāh.
Muslims are not to be overwhelmed by Christian onslaught. They are vast on text and void on substance. If you do not understand the Qur’an or Hadith leave it alone. Islam is the only Divinely revealed Religion. No religion can be shown to be superior to, or equal with, Islam!

Christians are like drowning rats clutching (unthinkingly?) at any straw to defame Islam and have the world drink the mythical blood of Jesus Christ and eat his body –spiritual cannibalism.
Christians straitjacket God in Mary’s belly, pull God out her sex-passage, nip God’s manhood (astaghferullah) color God a tyrant (dumping Adam’s sin on blameless babies) pin murder rap on God (for having Jesus killed) and claim Islam/Qur’an is false. Christians are to cry over the history of their Bible, as shown in the following:

In contrast to the Qur’an which was revealed to Prophet Mohammad through Angel Gabriel and was memorized and written down at the time of revelation.
In the section titled Bible Study Helps, The Self-pronouncing Edition of The Holy Bible has an impressive and extensive history of the Bible; published by The World Publishing Company, 2231 West 110TH Street, Cleveland 2, Ohio:

   -The Old Testament. Initially, there was no single book called “Bible”. The Old Testament was written over a period of “1,200” years. And was put into writing between “1500-500? B.C.”

   -The New Testament dates back to “A.D. 200” (some 90 years AFTER Jesus’ mission was over). It was translated from more than “4,000 Greek manuscripts” “8,000” Latin Vulgate (though Christ spoke Aramaic/Hebrew) and more than “1,000 other versions”; no one knows “the original autograph” of any of the book in the New Testament.

  Transcribing the Old Testament over the centuries resulted in “all the problems” that comes with the “preservation of a correct text.” Experts had to deal with “thousands of variant readings” in order to give “reasonable assurance” of its accuracy to the original as “can be determined.”

   The New Testament was finally written in “A.D. 52?-100?” in the “koiné Greek” language.

The “First stabilization” of the New Testament canon of 27 books” was between “350-400”.

   The King James Version (also known as Authorized version) was “completed” in “1611” by “renowned scholars” who were “appointed by King James”–(pp. 3, 9-10)

This is what Christians are promoting as “all” word of God and as being superior to, and more authentic and authoritative than, the Qur’an which was not only memorized and written down upon its revelation but also rehearsed annually by the Angel Gabriel with Prophet Mohammad.
Obviously, antiquity is no guarantee of authenticity and accuracy.

   The Bible itself testifies it is/was falsified:
“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, THE LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES HAS MADE IT INTO A LIE”–(Jeremiah 8:8. New American Standard Bible, 1985 edition).

That the Bible was altered:  Even today, changes are made in the Bible, as Ahmed Deedat has shown in his booklet Is the Bible God’s Word? For example:

   -the word “VIRGIN” in Isaiah 7:14 has been replaced with the phrase “a young woman”;

   -in the RSV Bible; the word “BEGOTTEN” of “begotten son” of John 3:16, has been “excised;” (like “virgin” birth, “begotten” son is another bedrock of Christianity);

   -the verse of 1-John 5:7 which speaks of the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost (the Trinity, another bedrock of Christianity) “has also been scrapped from the RSV” Bible;

   -the verses of Mark 16:19 and Luke 24:51 which refer to the Ascension of Jesus were “expunged” but later “restored to the text.” (Another bedrock of Christianity jack-hammered). Deedat notes while these terms have been “unceremoniously excised” from English Bibles, they are retained in the Bible’s nearly 1500 other languages. (Some may view this as deception or deepest depths of spiritual depravity).

Allāh exposes the humanness of past Scriptures: “Woe! Then to those who write the Book with their hands then say, This is from Allāh”–(Qur’an 2:79). In Qur’an 2:75 Allāh speaks about the alteration of the text (not a misinterpretation of the text).

Writing “the Book with their hands” include “forgeries” and the writings of Paul and others that form part of the New Testament which are promoted as Divine Revelation. As well as altering/writing the Old Testament (see next paragraph).

   Three more instances of tampering with the Bible:
(i) Prof. ‘Abdul Ahad Dawud (the former Rev. David Benjamin Keldani, B.D.) points out that Jews were “jealous of Ishmael” because they knew God’s covenant of circumcision was made with Ishmael; their “rancour” led them to “efface” Ishmael’s name from Genesis chapter 22, verses 2, 6 and 7 and insert  “Isaac”–(Muhammad in the Bible, p.32. Seems Jews forgot or did not care that Ishmael was Abraham’s “only son” BEFORE Isaac was born–Genesis 16:16; 21:5).

(ii) Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din points out that Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:9-20 speaking of the Son and the Father and the Holy Ghost are “forgeries” in the Bible/Gospel. (See Bible corrupt & obsolete).

(iii) Regarding Jesus’ saying: “Why callest thou me good.” The first quote in the following is from the “Self-Pronouncing Edition” Bible published by The World Publishing Company, Cleveland; 2, Ohio; the second is from “The Gideons” published by The Lockman Foundation, La Habra, California. Bold words show alteration; underlined words are not in the Gideons Bible:

 (1) “one came (to Jesus) and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And he (Jesus) said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one,  that is God: but…”
(2) “one came to Him (Jesus) and said, “Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may obtain eternal life? And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but…”
(Even the forgery is clumsy: who better is there to tell or to ask “what is good” than God or “Son of God”).
Is it not telling a “lie” on God that He revealed/inspired the changed words?

Is it not telling a “lie” on Jesus that he uttered the changed words?
It is doubtful a devotee of God would alter his Book of God and propagate falsehood in the name of God, the very God from Whom he/she seeks his/her daily bread; and in Whose House  he/she wants a ‘mansion” or “bungalow.”

Gideons pledge about their Bibles: “These publications shall be true to the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek.” (Never mind Jesus was not Greek nor spoke Greek).
So whose translation is “true to the original” and whose is false, Gideons or the “Self-Pronouncing Edition” Bible?

Gideons promise to “give the Lord Jesus Christ His proper place, the place which the Word gives Him.”
So what is Christ’s “proper place” that “the Word gives him”? Is Christ God, Son of God, Trinity? Is Christ vicarious atoner, and for which sin, inherited or committed? Or is Christ only a “Teacher” wholly and solely to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel” and prayed only “for them” and “not for the world”?–(Matthew 15:24; John 17:9. See Jesus-only for Jews).

As stated. Writing the Book with their hands–(Qur’an 2:79) include entire books such as those written by Paul and others, which form part of the New Testament, and are being pressed on to unschooled people as the “Word of God.”
About Paul: “More than half of the Acts of the Apostles….together with the letters written by him or in his name, comprises one-third of the New Testament”–(Ency. Britannica,15th Edition, Vol.13. Paul the Apostle, Saint; p. 1090).

As noted. The Bible itself conveys it has been falsified: “How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? But behold, the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie”–(Jeremiah 8:8).

As Scriptures prior to the Qur’an were temporary and for specific nations and would become obsolete upon the coming of Prophet Mohammad with the Qur’an, there was no need for their purity to be preserved. However, teachings of these Books that are applicable to the Resurrection are contained in the Qur’an:
“And We have revealed to thee (Mohammad) the Book (Qur’an) with the truth, verifying that which is before it of the Book (of other people) and a GUARDIAN OVER IT”; “(Mohammad) A Messenger from Allāh, reciting pure pages, Wherein are (all) right books–(Qur’an 5:48; 98:3).

    -“And We have not sent thee (Mohammad) but as a mercy to the nations”;
-“And We have not sent thee but as a bearer of good news and as a warner to all mankind, but most men know not”;
-“Say: O mankind, surely I am the Messenger of Allāh to you all, of Him, Whose is the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. There is no god but He; He gives life and causes death. So believe in Allāh and His Messenger, the Ummi Prophet who believes in Allāh and His words, and follow him so that you may be guided aright”–(Qur’an 21:107; 34:28.7:158).

Muslims who apostatized from Islam (and Christians who want that “mansion” or “bungalow” in heaven) have the grand opportunity while you are alive to return (turn) to Allāh; when you die –and no one knows when he/she will die– this grand opportunity evaporates like a dewdrop in Hell.

I bear witness there is no God but Allāh;
And I bear witness Mohammad is the Messenger of Allāh!
Subhān Allāh!
Alhamdo lillāh!
Allāho Akbar!
