The Qur'an already advises that none of its words can be altered or denied

Reader comment on item: Israel's Policy Should Be Victory
in response to reader comment: Reinterpreting the Koran

Submitted by A very concerned reader (Australia), May 19, 2021 at 08:05

Dear Carl,

I wrote today a comment very aligned with what you posted.

Yes, in both surat 6:115 and 18:27 is clearly stated that no one can alter/deny Allah's words.

You have mentioned many ayahs which have been mentioned and debated here. You're very right. Domestic violence is encouraged within the Islamic umbrella. I cannot see how this can be reinterpreted either!

I don't think those verses could be reinterpreted, and I cannot see Muslims changing them to fit in today's world because they just don't want to change. They cannot see anything wrong in their books. Muslims believe to the tee in every ayah, being young Muslims or older. It doesn't matter. And yes, the hadiths well worth the reading. One would become crazy if attempted to follow the rules in their everyday routine.

I said today that I'd love to be positive and believe that the message of Islam can change but I'm afraid is a utopia. And yes, I'm with you that we don't have more options than fighting intellectually against this doctrine to defend what it costed so long to build up in the West to enjoy the freedom and the privileges that we enjoy today.

As long as we can speak up, our voices won't be silenced. Thank goodness.

Thank you for sharing your view.
