Nice Question Plato!!! I appreciate your tone!! which is much improved now!

Quran the glorious is also called Furqan which means standard. For Muslims any body who claims the book he is following is believed to be the Word of God then it should be compared with Quran and those statements which contradict Quranic teachings and information are believed not to be the Word of God.

Most of the so called divine revelations are believed to be the mixture of God and Human words as in Bible Gospels are believed to be Word of God and other texts are related to Jesus's words and teachings thus forming complete Bible. In Islam Quran and Ahadiths are in different books not mixed up as done with Bible.


For Vedas and other books, those statements which are in conformity to Quran are assumed to be of divine nature...but there is no strong evidence that Vedas are the words of God, who received it and on whom it was revealed. However there is a general understanding that this could be "Suhuf-e-Ibrahim" the Scrolls revealed to Prophet Abraham (Hazrat Ibrahim A.S) and the word Brahama is derived from the name of Prophet Abraham. This is a deep subject and you can see several websites to confirm it.

Plato, we are lucky we have the extra ordinary treasure of information on our finger tips through worldwide web, we should seek knowledge and pray to our Lord that he may guide us towards the truth and make us understand what he wants us to understand.
