The Infalibility of the Quran


The entire Islamic world believes that the Quran is infallible. This belief is so rooted in their psyche that when a Muslim friend of mine introduced me to Islam, he presented this as evidence of the divine origin of the Quran. He argued that because the Quran unlike all other holy books has not been changed it must be from God.

Please reply about this whether the Quran is corrupted or not.

Whether the Quran is infallible or whether it has been corrupted or not are two different subjects.

As for the first question the answer is that the Quran is not infallible. It contains thousands of errors, absurdities, contradictions, inaccuracies and sheer nonsense. It contradicts logic, history, science, the Bible and even itself. It even contains grammatical errors that show its author was an illiterate man.  Hardly can you find a book as absurd as this book. It is so poorly written that I cannot call it literature.

As for the other question, we don’t know. The Quran we have is the one compiled by Othman. He burned all other versions of the Quran so there can be no disagreement among Muslims. It is clear that the other versions must have been different from the one chosen by him otherwise he would not have burned them.  How did he determine his version is the correct one and the other versions are not?  There was no way for him to know for certainty.  It is very possible that his pick was not the right one. However, since all other versions are destroyed, it is impossible to say whether the one we have is the authentic one.

Just see what has happened to the hadiths. Various people have reported the same story is various ways. They defer in details.  The verses of the Quran could have also suffered similar fate, although perhaps not to that extent, because they were memorized.

However, with a little rational thinking, we can assume since Othman had to burn the other versions to avoid discrepancy, this book must have been altered. It is also possible that many of the verses of the present Quran are not what Muhammad said.  The original verses may have been the ones that were burned.  Many verses may have been lost forever. It is also possible that some verses have been added to the Quran that were not originally said by Muhammad.

      why did Allah save only Quran not other books like Bibal, Torah sent by him. Why does Allah depend on books to save his revelations and teach the humans? Mohammed got the all knowledge without books. Allah passed massages to him without book. Then why do you muslim focuse too much on books?

    As I read some Islamic response regarding who was the first believer in Allah. They clarify the contradictory statements on history basis. Quran almost talk about history of Jews, Christians and cultures & rituals of countries near of Saudi Arabia. Why Allah had concerned only with Jews, Christians? Where is Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Vedic Religion etc.?

    And what you say Quran is book of history or Divine Guidance to man?

    And Why does Allah make false promise?

    Quran 3:56 And as for those who disbelieved, I will punish them with a severe punishment in this world and the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers.”
    We can see disbeliever in Allah in this world are in much better position than believers in Allah are poor, backward, illiterate.

      That is debatable. . . try defining "backward" and "poor".

    Please be honest with me sina, what are you smoking? Whatever it is, it's gotta be of very high quality to give you such delusions of grandeur.

    As a practicing muslim, I, actually welcome your verbal and written diarrhea. Guys like you are very much needed for us muslim to undergo a test of sorts.

    I heard it from a movie( I'm recalling from memory here) : If there is false hood ( replace your opinion here) there has to be TRUTH. Since false hood cannot originate from it's own.

    Christians are looters as we still see in some modern societies but its not new,its in their religion._ _''They must be dividing the spoils they took: there must be a damsel or two for each man, Spoils of dyed cloth as Sisera's spoil, an ornate shawl or two for me in the spoil.''(Judges 5:30 NAB)_ _Jesus encouraged his followers to keep sex slaves._ _When a man sells his? daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. Exodus 21:7-11 NLT_

    • YousufMasih000 says:

      Bustingchristianity: I do not know what your religion is but you are surely less informed, can you please show me where Jesus encouraged his followers to keep sex slaves. if you are quoting from Exodus, then please tell me if the spirit had yet come on earth as a human then. you need to bust your brain first, if you have one and then try to bust christianity.

    Iam not surprised to? see noobs here who are trying to judge a religion with their satanic mind,and not even keeping in mind,the teachings of christianity.I will put light on the "loving'' ,'' peaceful'' christianity based on their scripture.Which obviously is 18+ rated._ _Rape and incest is the most encouraged act in bible.Apart from that baby killing,raping any woman you want and pay a price to her family later as compensation, human sacrifise, slavery,I mean Barbarity at its peak is christanity._Christians are so pathetic that they claim to love their prophet but they LIE. They actually follow satan and satan is their god. Proved from the fact? that how could you not follow and even change the whole scripture depending to their modern needs. They discard what they think hard to follow from it as being the true SATAN followers. Who in the world will claim to love somone and then change what his teachings were? This is satan's work and christians are his guinea pigs.
