More on Quran

Reader comment on item: Accepting Israel as the Jewish State[: Public Opinion in Four Arab Countries]
in response to reader comment: Same Arguments - No New Truth From the Quran

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Jun 8, 2010 at 23:57

Hi Mr. M Tovey,

See , I am trying to make the one and only point that in no way Quran stands against the teachings of Jesus or Hebrew Holy Bible. In fact the point Prophet himself made throughout his life is that Quran is not presenting anything new to anyone. It is the same word as that of Hebrew Holy Bible.

You need to understand that Quran is not trying to abolish any laws described in the Hebrew Holy Bible. You just need to understand this that the Quran testifies that the Hebrew Holy Bible is the word of GOD.

In fact there is a verse in Quran which tells Muslims to respect the Taurat (Torah in Hebrew) and Enjil (The Gospels) becasue without those two books Muslims do nto have a sound basis of faith.

What I am trying to tell you is that you need to understand that Quran is no way hostile to your belief and theory about GOD. Where Quran differentiates with you is on the matter of Paul. What Quran refutes are the words of Paul. This man was a sinner and he deliberately changed the messages of Jesus and inserted his own ideas.

I do not have any problem if you ask me to believe in the teachins of Jesus but what I want to refute are the corrupt teachings of Paul of Tersus whom I can neither worship nor believe like you.

And kindly tell me if you can find any differences in Quran about Jesus then note them to me.

See Quran tells us that Jesus was from Virgin birth , Quran tells us that Jesus is the light of the world , Quran tells us that Jesus brought to life dead with the power of GOD ALMIGHTY , Quran also tells us that Jesus ascended to heaven.

So kindly tell me what is the point that you find Quran is contradicting with Gospels.

In the final analysis kindly tell me in what scenarios do you think Quran is differentiating with the Gospels ? If you help me out in this matter then it will be easy for me to understand the message that you want to bear witness to me.

Another humble request when you judge Islam kindly do not judge it with a hostile viewpoint of an American neo-conservative since the relationship between Quran and Gospels is much bigger than any American neo-conservative.

Peace be upon you.
