The Imperfections of the Quran – 2

 In  the last post we saw three quranic imperfections. In this second part we will conclude this series with a final discrepancy which also shows the case we have been making all along, that the Quran is imperfect, and therefore, not a revelation from God.

THE REVELATION WHICH FAILED TO MAKE IT TO THE QURAN

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4: 393 Narrated Said bin Jubair: That he heard Ibn ‘Abbas saying, “Thursday! And you know not what Thursday is? After that Ibn ‘Abbas wept till the stones on the ground were soaked with his tears. On that I asked Ibn ‘Abbas, “What is (about) Thursday?” He said, “When the condition (i.e. health) of Allah’s Apostle deteriorated, he said, ‘Bring me a bone of scapula, so that I may write something for you after which you will never go astray. ‘The people differed in their opinions although it was improper to differ in front of a prophet, They said, ‘What is wrong with him? Do you think he is delirious? Ask him (to understand). The Prophet replied, ‘Leave me as I am in a better state than what you are asking me to do.’ Then the Prophet ordered them to do three things saying, ‘Turn out all the pagans from the Arabian Peninsula, show respect to all foreign delegates by giving them gifts as I used to do.’ ” The sub-narrator added, “The third order was something beneficial which either Ibn ‘Abbas did not mention or he mentioned but I forgot.’

 

Sahih Muslim Book 13: 4014 Sa’id b. Jubair reported that Ibn ‘Abbas said: Thursday, (and then said): What is this Thursday? He then wept so much that his tears moistened the pebbles. I said: Ibn ‘Abbas, what is (significant) about Thursday? He (Ibn ‘Abbas) said: The illness of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) took a serious turn (on this day), and he said: Come to me, so that I should write for you a document that you may not go astray after me. They (the Companions around him) disputed, and it is not meet to dispute in the presence of the Apostle. They said: How is lie (Allah’s Apostle)? Has he lost his consciousness? Try to learn from him (this point). He (the Holy Prophet) said: Leave me. I am better in the state (than the one in which you are engaged). I make a will about three things: Turn out the polytheists from the territory of Arabia; show hospitality to the (foreign) delegations as I used to show them hospitality. He (the narrator) said: He (Ibn Abbas) kept silent on the third point, or he (the narrator) said: But I forgot that.

 

Sahih Muslim Book 13: 4015 Sa’id b. Jubair reported from Ibn Abbas that he said: Thursday, and what about Thursday? Then tears began to flow until I saw them on his cheeks as it they were the strings of pearls. He (the narrator) said that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Bring me a shoulder blade and ink-pot (or tablet and inkpot), so that I write for you a document (by following which) you would never go astray. They said: Allah’s Messenger (may peace upon him) is in THE STATE OF UNCONSCIOUSNESS.

 

Sahih Muslim Book 13: 4016Ibn Abbas reported: When Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) was about to leave this world, there were persons (around him) in his house, ‘Umar b. al-Kbattab being one of them. Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Come, I may write for you a document; you would not go astray after that. Thereupon Umar said: Verily Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) is deeply afflicted with pain. You have the Qur’an with you. The Book of Allah is sufficient for us. Those who were present in the house differed. Some of them said: Bring him (the writing material) so that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) may write a document for you and you would never go astray after him And some among them said what ‘Umar had (already) said. When they indulged in nonsense and began to dispute in the presence of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), he said: Get up (and go away) ‘Ubaidullah said: Ibn Abbas used to say: THERE WAS A HEAVY LOSS, INDEED A HEAVY LOSS, that, due to their dispute and noise. Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) could not write (or dictate) the document for them.

 

These Hadiths state one thing clearly, which is that Mohammed died with a revelation which he wanted to speak out but could not/did not. He wanted to give the Muslims something of importance which will keep them on the right path. But he could not write it because of the commotion around him. This revelation remains unspoken and unwritten and went to the grave with Mohammed.

What does this say about the Quran? It says that the Quran is incomplete and therefore imperfect.

The Imperfections of the Quran – Part 1

Islam_Anno2_64Muslims generally believe that the Quran is perfect, meaning, it is complete and error free. However, a close examination of the evidence suggests that the Quran is incomplete and therefore imperfect.

1. Part of Quranic revelation was eaten by a goat

Sunan Ibn Majah, Book of Nikah, Hadith # 1934
“Narrated Aisha ‘The verse of stoning and of suckling an adult ten times were revealed, and they were (written) on a paper and kept
under my bed. When the Messenger of Allah expired and we were preoccupied with his death, a goat entered and ate away the paper.'”

Wars of Early Islam

images (3)Muslims often project Islam as the religion of peace. But can this be true in the light of the historical evidence in the form of wars during the early Islamic history? Let’s evaluate.

Mohammed migrated to Medina from Mecca in the year 622 A.D. This migration is called Hijra, and 622 is the first year of the Islamic calender. The first year of the Islamic calender does not start with the year Quran was given to  Mohammed, year 610 A.D or the year Mohammed gave the public proclamation to embrace Islam 613 A.D or the year 620 A.D when the Prophet is claimed to have visited heaven. These do not mark the watershed moment in Islam. But 622 A.D does.

The migration to Medina in the year 622 A.D resulted in a paradigm shift in the life of Mohammed and the Muslims. Until then Mohammed and his followers were a persecuted bunch. Some of them had already migrated to the Christian empire of Abyssinia for refuge. This migration happened twice. But after Mohammed migrated to Medina in the year 622 A.D., his life changed. He acquired power. He became a ruler. Once he became a ruler, a series of battles followed. These include: [Read more…]

The Most Common Question Muslims Ask Christians: Where did Jesus say, “I am God! Worship me!”?

jesus-christ-by-MikeOC[232498]If you any Muslim friend who is apologetically inclined, then the question he would have asked you is this. ‘Where did Jesus say, ” I am God! Worship me!”?’

Now it is an interestingly and intelligently worded question to take unaware any ill-equipped Christian. It assumes that there is a certain way Jesus must express himself “I am God” and if he has not said that then he is not God. The Muslim thinks that Jesus should express his divinity in accordance with his understanding or wish as to how he should express it. Secondly, he assumes that Jesus has not said that.

But Jesus has expressed his divinity in multiple ways.

1. Jesus claim to be deity. [Read more…]

The Cross and the Falsification of Islam

Sura 4:156-159 states:

“Allah set a seal upon them owing to their unbelief, so they shall not believe except a few. And for their unbelief and for their having uttered against Marium a grievous calumny. And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa  son of Marium, the apostle of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and  they killed him not for sure. Nay! Allah took him up to Himself; and Allah is Mighty, Wise. Andthere is not one of the followers of the Book but most certainly believes in this before his death, and on the day of  resurrection he (Isa) shall be a witness against them.”

The Quran claims that Jesus was not killed. It denies the death of Jesus on the cross of Calvary.

The Crucifixion of Jesus attested by both biblical and extra-biblical evidences. [Read more…]
