Mr Foolhardy Dhimmi ( Hey it rhymes )

You bravely asserted that Quran 2.213 has flaws as you claimed. Are those purported flaws measured according to your or your colleague's standards ? For people who barely know Arabic Grammar not to mention Quranic Grammar AND to say those things, either you are foolhardy or a courageous pretender. Amin Riaz has many a times exposed your inadequacies, yet you persisted in dong what you are doing.-don't you care about credibility ?

Anyhow. as part of dawah to you , here is the clarification of the ayah you seemed elated because you thought to have found what you wanted to find in it.

Quran 2:213

Mankind was [of] one religion [before their deviation]; then Allah sent the prophets as bringers of good tidings and warners and sent down with them the Scripture in truth to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed. And none differed over the Scripture except those who were given it - after the clear proofs came to them - out of jealous animosity among themselves. And Allah guided those who believed to the truth concerning that over which they had differed, by His permission. And Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path.

Analysis

  1. Mankind was a single community ( in terms of beliefs )
  2. As time went by there were differences on certain things, God then sent down Messengers giving good tidings and warnings also with the Scripture which was / is TO JUDGE on their differences. What is meant by "The Scripture " is all the Divine Revelations; the authentic uncorrupted original of the Torah,( the Old Testament,) the uncorrupted Injeel (Gospel )( New Testament ) and of course the Quran.( The Last Testament )Believers used the Scripture to find theTruth. But there were and are those who did not use the Scripture, the messages delivered by the Messengers, simply because of jealousy—( Some refused to comply with Torah,later on some priests and groups of materialistic minded Jews refused to comply with spiritual-emphasis teachings of Injeel and lastly the Christians and Judaism belief Jews refused to believe in the Final Revelation*Quran ) just because the last Messiah was not a Jew but an Arab.
  1. The Believers who believed in the "The Scripture" and listened to the Prophets –and found the Truth were people who were Guided by God. First and foremost , there must be a Permission/God's Will --- for them to be Guided. When God Wills it/Permits it,then only there will be Guidance from Him.In other words, Guidance follows Will/Permission.
  1. The clarification in 3) is supported by the next verse' And Allah guides whom He wills ( whom He Wants to be Guided) to a straight path.When he Wills it then there will be Guidance from Him.

So , where is the difficulty. ?
