Reader comment on item: Is Allah God? - Continued

First, thanks to Daniel for his clarification, but the following sentence in his first article "Is Allah God?" is inaccurate. Here is the sentence "Moses and Jesus introduced mistakes into the Word of God". According to the Quran, Prophets Musa (Moses) and Isaa (Jesus), peace be upon them all, brought Torah (Old testament) and Injil (Gospel), respectively. How could the same Quran assert that these prophets introduced mistakes into the word of God, as claimed by Daniel.

The Quran commands us to believe in both the Torah and Injil, and warns us about the corruptions that have been introduced in these two books by its followeres (NOT by Prophets MUSA and ISAA). Finally, if early European Christians were true to their belief in Prophet Isaa, they could have preserved the original Injil in Aramaic. Another serious mistake on the part of the early translators of the Bible, is that they translated the names of people , which have caused some confusion among Jews, Christians and Muslims. For example, Musa=Moses, Isaa/Esaa=Jesus, Mariama=Mary, etc.
