In response to Mr. Hugh Watt's questions, about the mistakes

In the Quran

Dear Hugh Watt, May 30, 2012

In the name of Allah the most merciful.

In response to your valuable remarks I must say that we are not trying to prove that my knowledge is better than yours or yours than mine because all the knowledge given to us is by the Creator. And the Creator gave us a very little knowledge and in the Quran.

Surah Bani Israel (17:85)

"And the knowledge ye have been vouchsafed but little".

Dear, when we read the Bible we find something illogical, similarly when we go through the Quran we find something not logical then we consider them useless and foolish. Now I am telling you the reason behind every arguement , dispute, mistrust and quarrel is that given little knowledge. How the problem starts, it starts when we consider our knowledge as absolute knowledge, when we consider us the all knower , this is the point when we start making mistakes and blunders, we start saying that this verse or that verse from the Bible or the Quran is not justified according to my wisdom and my acquaintance, it seems to me foolish and hopeless, this happens when we consider everything is dependent to our knowledge and then our statement becomes louder and louder that this book is not reliable or that book is pathetic , for example the Quran says that cows meet you can eat but pork is forbidden, we don't see the logic or justification so I may say that it should not be like that.

The problem is that I am trying to justify according to my knowledge considering my knowledge is absolute. Dear our knowledge only circles from creature to creature it is not sufficient to solve the enigma of the God.

We all try to justify and judge the God according to our knowledge but if we can figure it out then the God will be under knowledge and anything which is under our knowledge , the knowledge of a creature is not the Creator and it is not the God.

And for the first time this very mistake was made by satan (Iblis) when the God ordered him to bow down to Adam.

Surah Al Baqarah (2:39)

"And behold, We said to the angels 'Bow down to Adam' and they bowed down. Not so Iblis: he refused and was haughty: He was of those who reject. Faith".

was superior as he was made from fire not like Adam made by mud. Depending upon his knowledge he He refused because of his little knowledge was not allowing him to do so, according to his knowledge he refused the Lord, and refusing your Creator Who created everything for you and for your comfort, refusing a Benefactor is not knowledge.

The God created the Universe, then created men, then gave him knowledge. Now how it is possible that the God becomes dependent to His universe and universe becomes dependent to men and men become dependent to his little knowledge therefore how it is possible that the God becomes dependent to our knowledge given by Him to us.

In your questions you mentioned;

1,If (the Quran) gives wrong answer to a number of topics.

2. If the book has historical and scientific errors.

I request you please mention those wrong answers and scientific errors so that we can discuss it.

For scientific authenticity of the Quran you please go through the book " The Bible the Quran and Science" by Dr, Maurice Bucaille.

Herewith I am sending some pages to quench your thirst for knowledge, written by a great sufi.

With all the best and regards.

Mahmood Hussain.
