The variation of pronouns in the Qur’an is a sign of its eloquence and miraculous nature

A non muslim wants to know the reason why the quran was also revealed in reported speeches. An example is where Allah says in Al Inshiqaq vs 24.And Allah knows best what they gather( of good and bad deeds). That is Allah mentioning his name in terms of 2nd person.


Praise be to Allah.

The Qur’an was revealed in a plain Arabic tongue; one aspect of the literary style of the Arabs is that the speaker may refer to himself sometimes in the FIRST PERSON, sometimes in the THIRD PERSON, sometimes in the SINGULAR and sometimes in the PLURAL. This variation is part of eloquence and good style. NO ONE CAN UNDERSTAND THIS EXCEPT THOSE WHO KNOW ARABIC AND HAVE A SUFFICIENT GRASP OF ITS DIFFERENT WAYS OF EXPRESSION.

The Qur’an was not revealed in only one style, as the questioner thinks; rather it uses a variety of different styles; this is part of its miraculous nature and eloquence.  Read more of this post

Muhammad (pbuh) and Madinah in the Bible.

isaiah-scroll

Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel… [Qur’an chapter 7, verse 157]

The main proof of Muhammad’s Prophethood, peace be upon him, is and forever will be the Glorious Qur’an which was revealed by God to him through the angel Gabriel. God Almighty, out of His mercy for the Jews and Christians (respectfully referred to in the Qur’an as the People of the Book) also provided an additional proof to mankind of his Prophethood. This can be found in their very own scriptures, the Torah and Gospel.

ISAIAH 42

The 42nd chapter of the Old Testament Book of Isaiah clearly foretells the coming of an Arabian Prophet, specifically Prophet Muhammad. We will go through Isaiah 42 line by line and analyse the verses to see how they relate to Muhammad. Please note that all translations have been taken from the New International Version of the Bible:

1- Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations.

Isaiah starts the chapter by drawing our attention to a very special person that He will send. He describes this person as:

“my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight”

God has Not Taken Any Son – He Neither Begets, Nor is Born

Rather, He Creates what He Wills, and when He Decrees a Matter, He Only Says to it, “Be,” and it is

3:45 – 47, Qur’an
[So mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed God gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary – distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to God].  He will speak to the people in the cradle and in maturity and will be of the righteous.”  She said, “My Lord, how will I have a child when no man has touched me?”  [The angel] said, “Such is God; He creates what He wills.  When He decrees a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.”

Psalms 33:4 – 6, Torah
For the word of the Lord [is] right; and all His works [are done] in truth.  He loves righteousness and judgement, the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.  By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

6:101, Qur’an
[Thus He is] Originator of the heavens and the earth.  How could He have a son when He does not have a wife and He created all things?  And He is, of all things, Knowing.

43:15, Qur’an
But they have attributed [sons] to Him from His servants a portion.  Indeed, man is clearly ungrateful. Read more of this post

I would urge Abu Adam to seriously investigate matters that concern him:
A) There is a lot of information already available (see below) as these arguments are not the new.
B) If the information is not readily available, ask those who have knowledge.

All the Gospels are Anonymous Until 180-185CE

Who Wrote the Four Gospels of the New Testament? An Introduction to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

By Vexen Crabtree 2015

http://www.humanreligions.info/gospels.html

2. All the Gospels are Anonymous Until 180-185CE

Book CoverThe four Gospels… are all anonymous, written in the third person aboutJesus and his companions. None of them contains a first-person narrative (“One day, when Jesus and I went into Capernaum…”), or claims to be written by an eyewitness or companion of an eyewitness. Why then do we call them MatthewMarkLuke and John? Because sometime in the second century, when proto-orthodox Christians recognized the need for apostolicauthorities, they attributed these books to apostles (Matthew and John) and close companions of apostles (Mark, the secretary of Peter; and Luke, the travelling companion of Paul). Most scholars today have abandoned these identifications, and recognize that the books were written by otherwise unknown but relatively well-educated Greek-speaking (and writing) Christians during the second half of the first century.

Lost Christianities” by Bart Ehrman (2003)7

Justin Martyr, writing around 150-60 CE, quotes verses from the Gospels, but does not indicate what the Gospels were named. For Justin, these books are simply known, collectively, as the ‘Memoires of the Apostles.’ It was about a century after the Gospels had been originally put in circulation that they were definitively named Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. This comes, for the first time, in the writings of the church father and heresiologist Irenaeus, around 180-85 CE.

Forged” by Bart Ehrman (2011)3

Ehrman kindly points out that the gospels were not forgeries – they were anonymous, and it was a case of false attribution8 by Christians later on that was the cause of the misdirection which lasted many hundreds of years.


 

How Come Peter and John Wrote the Gospels When They Are Illiterate?

When you ask the Christians about who wrote the Gospels. They will answer “The Disciples of Jesus of course.” BUT, you’ll be surprised when you open the New Testament Act 4:13. Both Peter and John were Illiterate. The Bible versions below show that John and Peter are: UNSCHOOLED, NO SPECIAL TRAINING IN THE SCRIPTURES, UNEDUCATED, UNLEARNED AND IGNORANT, UNEDUCATED AND UNTRAINED MEN, THEY DID NOT KNOW THE SCROLLS AND THAT THEY WERE UNEDUCATED, NO EDUCATION OR SPECIAL TRAINING. And finally, ILLITERATE.

So the question: HOW CAN ILLITERATE MEN WROTE A BOOK?

Acts 4:13

New International Version
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were UNSCHOOLED, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

New Living Translation
The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with NO SPECIAL TRAINING IN THE SCRIPTURES. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.

English Standard Version
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were UNEDUCATED, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus. Read more of this post

Interpolations in the Bible

interpolation
ɪntəːpəˈleɪʃ(ə)n/
noun
  1. 1.
    the insertion of something of a different nature into something else.
    “the interpolation of songs into the piece”
  2. 2.
    a remark interjected in a conversation.
    “as the evening progressed their interpolations became more ridiculous”

By Ben Love ~ 

Here’s a word you might not have heard before: Interpolation. What does it mean? An interpolation is a spurious addition to a written work, added by someone other than the original author. The Bible is replete with interpolations, a clear sign of tampering by persons other than those who originally wrote the texts in question.

Below is a list of New Testament verses considered by most historians (even Christian ones) to be interpolations:
  • Matthew 6:13

Spurious or Interpolation or Redaction Passages of the Bible

Matthew 17:21

King James Version (KJV)

21 “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”

This verse is eliminated, completely GONE, LEFT OUT of the NIV version of the Bible! The New International Version deletes over 64,000 words! including words like: Godhead, regeneration, mercyseat, Calvary, remission, Jehovah, immutable, omnipotent, Comforter, Holy Ghost, Messiah, quickened, infallible, et cetera. Most of the modern Bibles line up very closely with the NIV.

If you read a modern Bible, don’t let your pride get in the way of really looking at this information. Some people get hostile because I’m sharing these facts. Look up the verses and see that what you call the Bible is not the Bible. Get a real Bible. The King James conformable to the edition of 1611–NOT the New King James or the KJ21, etc. they are not King James Bibles.

WHOLE Bible verses deleted in the NIV

The following WHOLE verses have been removed in the NIV–whether in the text or footnotes…over 40 IN ALL!!!

Matthew 12:47 — removed in the footnotes

Report!! “Luke 22:19-20 was changed represents instance “orthodox corruption of Scripture.”
