in response to reader comment: Question for Nuray

Dear Daniel Hassan,

You wrote that

"Now my question is if God could keep the Quran from being corrupted why could he not keep the Bible from being corrupted? "

Allah has sent a lot of messengers before Muhammed, peace upon him, like Moses and Jesus. Jews, whose holy book was only for them, was waiting a new messenger, Moses told so. Jesus was a Jewish man. He delivered the moral teachings of Allah. Neither his people nor Jews recognised him as a messenger during his life time although he has many miracles. He didn't bring new laws and regulations. Later on, his people invented the concept of trinity, which was not teaching of any previous messengers before Jesus. Islam refuses trinity.

Muhammed, peace upon him, was a messenger and a statesman, like Moses. He brought new laws and regulations to all people. That's why Christians usually talk about love rather than social justice like Muslims.

Muhammed, peace upon him, is the last messenger as written in Quran

33 - Surah Al-Ahzab
Muhammad () is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Messenger of Allâh and the last (end) of the Prophets. And Allâh is Ever All­Aware of everything (40).

That's why Quran is kept from any corruption as written in Quran.

15 - Surah Al-Hijr
Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur'ân) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption) .(6)

It is well-known that after Muhammed, peace upon him, no more messenger is sent. Isn't it logical?

This is the way how Allah choose to educate his creatures.
