Our dear abd al-rahman is realizing is that his worst enemy is poor islamic theology wrote

>Ok let me tell you another thing if we don't have the right book for Saydna Mosa or it has been distorted so what we should do??

For the readers Muslims tell us that the Jews and Christians corrupted the Bible but the probelm here is the Qur'an also says the following:

1. al-tawarah (the first five books of the Bible) and al-injiil (the NT) and al-zabour (the Pslams) are Allah's words

2. The Qur'an says that Muhammad should tell the Jews and Christians that "wa ilahina wa ilahikum wahid" or and your God and our god, one (read this as the same one)

3. We are told in the tradition that Muhammad was given a copy of the Bible by some jewish rabbi in Mecca and he kissed it and called it the word of Allah but he never mentioned that such book is corrupted so we must assume that if the Bible was corrupted then it would have taken place after the death of Muhammad.

4. Now in Q6:115 it says: blah....blah....blah...lamubaddala likalimati wa huwa al-samee3u al-3aleem or there is no chnge for his word (read this as the revealed books be it the Bible or the Qur'an or the Pslams) his means that the Bible could not have been corrupted when this aya was revealed

5.Notice also that in Q7:157-158 the author of the Qur'an says that we will find the name of al-rasul al-nabi (assuming it is Muhammad) in the Bible (fi al-tawarh wa al-injiil) if so then the Bible is not corrupted as no one with some logic would use a corrupted book for reference

6. But the real issue is if the jews and the Christians really corrupted the Bible then why did Allah not stop them after all it is his word! Could it be because there is no Allah or could it be that he is not omnipotent? ao which one is it?

So you see: the bogus claim that the Bible was corrupted cannot be supported by evidence from the Qur'an Now do you see what happens when you become the victim of poor education and literary fraud?
