      • Since the Qur’an sincerely thought the gospel was written and a book الکتاب that the Christians (and for OT the Jews), they were still reading the book at the time (Surah 5:47; 5:68; 10:94), it proves that the Islamic sources affirm and confirm the previous Scriptures. (although ignorant of details of the content)

        Say, “O People of the Scripture [al-kitab الکتاب = the writing, “the book”] , you are [standing] on nothing until you uphold [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord.” And that which has been revealed to you from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.
        Surah 5:68 (with my emphasis on the writing, Al-kitab / الکتاب )

        قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ لَسْتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَيْءٍ حَتَّىٰ تُقِيمُوا التَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنجِيلَ وَمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ ۗ وَلَيَزِيدَنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُم مَّا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ طُغْيَانًا وَكُفْرًا ۖ فَلَا تَأْسَ عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ – 5:68

        Keep repeating, just keeeep repeating. You were shown that Q 6:115 was about the decree than you jump to a hadith. Then when asked to prove your point from the hadith you go all the way back to the first pile of trashargument.

        WHAT VERSE was it?
        It only talks about ONE verse from one arab. Is that proof?
        I challange you to show me where Q 10:94 says anything about preservation of the scriptures. It only says to ask the people of the book and this was concerning the pagans who believed messengers couldn’t be men but only angels.
        And quoting surah 5 will NOT help you since Q 5:48 tells xtians and jews how to judge by their scriptures.
        What a fail.

        O and I’m still waiting for you to even TOUCH these hadiths:
        The Bani Israel wrote a book, they followed it and left the Torah. (This hadith was reported in Tabarani’s Al Mu’jam Al Awsat and was authenticated by Sheikh Nasr Al Deen Al Albani in his Silsila Al Ahaadeeth Al Saheeha, hadith no. 2832.)

        The Bani Israel as a long time passed and their hearts became hardened, they invented a book from themselves. It took over their hearts and their tongues. (This hadith was reported in Al Bayhaqi’s Shu’b Al Eemaan, Volume 2, no.439. Sheikh Nasr Al Deen Al Albani has authenticated this hadith in his Silsila Al Ahaadeeth Al Saheeha, hadith no. 2694.)

        Surah 3:3

        The Qur’an here and other places shows the basic principle that when he says in 6:114-115, “there is no changing the words of God”, that he is including both the decrees (judgments, decisions, rulings on unbelievers and jinn and devils (as in the context of 6:112-113) AND also the written Scriptures of God, because they only we know about those decrees (the ones we know of) – they were written down so that we can know them today.

        Quoting Surah 5:47-48 and 5:68 DOES help me – it proves the Qur’an affirms and claims to protect / guard the previous Scriptures “between the hands” = the Scriptures the Jews and Christians had in their possession at the time.

        The context surrounding Q6:115 make it CLEAR it’s talking about the decree. There is nothing in the context that says ANYTHING about preserving the scriptures. The text doesn’t say anything about WRITTEN decrees either. Wth are you talking about. And Q.5:48 can be perfectly understood as a the Quran being a corrector and many classical commentators understood it that way. You go to ‘unclear’ verses to force your interpratation into it when clearcut texts like for example the hadiths about the prophet saying the torah was changed, the jews wrote a new book and left it, make it clear that your joke of an argument is trash Kenny.

      • Yes, the Quran protects the previous scriptures. But how would it do that if they were revealed long ago? The answer is that it confirms the true scripture from the falsehood of the Jews and Christians. Thus, it is a protector of the true scriptures and a criterion over the falsehood added to them. For exampl, I was just reading Surah Tawbah and came across this verse:

        “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur’an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”

        So this promise was in the Torah and Gospel. The Quran confirms this and thus protects the true scriptures.

  5. How do you know that 6:112-115 is referring back to Surah 11:119?

    Where is the word “decree” in this passage?

    6:114 –
    [Say], “Then is it other than Allah I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?” And those to whom We [previously] gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth, so never be among the doubters.

    In other words, Why should I seek someone other than Allah to make a judgment (decree), since He is the Judge حکما (we also have this word and its related words in Farsi, Judge, Sovereign governor , Ruler حاکم, decision, command ، حکومت – government, command = حکم , it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?

    Interesting that the Qur’an is saying, basically, “the judgement / decision/ decree is sure, as God is the Judge, who also revealed the written Scriptures explained in detail – the place where you know you can go and resort to and read and get guidance and other judgements/decisions, if you need guidance.

    And those to whom we previously gave the Scripture know that it is sent down from your Lord in truth” = the written Scriptures are from God and “sent down from your Lord in truth” = Divine Revelation, inspiration on the writings / books. (for the previous Scriptures = Law, Zobur, Prophets (OT), Gospel (NT)

    Since the NT is progressive revelation continuing the Old Testament, it is not necessary for all details to be in the OT, since they are later revealed in the NT.

        And We sent not before you (O Muhammad SAW) but men to whom We inspired, so ask the people of the Reminder [Scriptures – the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel)] if you do not know.

The only promise was regarding the Quran, a promise which has been fulfilled and which proves the Quran is from God. So even IF the previous scriptures were not corrupted, which they are, it wouldn’t matter. You would still need to follow the Quran because it is the last and final Criterion. So I guess you’ll be converting to Islam, right Pennywise?

  7. Hadith of Bukhari, 9.111:

    Narrated ‘Aisha:

    The commencement of the Divine Inspiration to Allah’s Apostle was in the form of good righteous (true) dreams in his sleep. He never had a dream but that it came true like bright day light. He used to go in seclusion (the cave of) Hira where he used to worship(Allah Alone) continuously for many (days) nights. He used to take with him the journey food for that (stay) and then come back to (his wife) Khadija to take his food like-wise again for another period to stay, till suddenly the Truth descended upon him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel came to him in it and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, “I do not know how to read.” (The Prophet added), “The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read, and I replied, “I do not know how to read,” whereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and asked me again to read, but again I replied, “I do not know how to read (or, what shall I read?).” Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me and then released me and said, “Read: In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists). Has created man from a clot. Read and Your Lord is Most Generous…up to….. ..that which he knew not.” (96.15)

    Then Allah’s Apostle returned with the Inspiration, his neck muscles twitching with terror till he entered upon Khadija and said, “Cover me! Cover me!” They covered him till his fear was over and then he said, “O Khadija, what is wrong with me?” Then he told her everything that had happened and said, ‘I fear that something may happen to me.” Khadija said, ‘Never! But have the glad tidings, for by Allah, Allah will never disgrace you as you keep good relations with your Kith and kin, speak the truth, help the poor and the destitute, serve your guest generously and assist the deserving, calamity-afflicted ones.”

    … But after a few days Waraqa died and the Divine Inspiration was also paused for a while and the Prophet became so sad as we have heard that he intended several times to throw himself from the tops of high mountains and every time he went up the top of a mountain in order to throw himself down, Gabriel would appear before him and say, “O Muhammad! You are indeed Allah’s Apostle in truth” whereupon his heart would become quiet and he would calm down and would return home. And whenever the period of the coming of the inspiration used to become long, he would do as before, but when he used to reach the top of a mountain, Gabriel would appear before him and say to him what he had said before. (Ibn ‘Abbas said regarding the meaning of: ‘He it is that Cleaves the daybreak (from the darkness)’ (6.96) that Al-Asbah means the light of the sun during the day and the light of the moon at night).

      I have shown 2 other spots where the plural “words” is used for the decrees:

      66:12. As well as Mary, the daughter of Amram who guarded her virtue, so I breathed My Spirit into her. She believed in her Lord’s Words, His Scriptures and was among the devout…

      Notice “she believed in His words AND His Scriptures” indicating they are separate from one another. This verse is enough to refute you but:

      6:34. There were Messengers who were rejected before you. But they remained patient when they were rejected and persecuted, until My help came to them. None can change God’s words and you’ve already received news about what happened with these Messengers.

      None can change God’s words again AND as a bonus, it’s in the SAME Surah you and I are discussing. The context of this is obviously the decree (which is again mentioned in the Qur’an)

      So I’m sorry you were going on about something about plural usage or whatever?

        Actually, that is even stronger for my case – since His words are written down in Scripture; and the verse is saying that faith in the verbal promise of God is also faith in the written words of God.

  8. Yes, in context 6:115 is talking about written Scriptures, because the context is verse 114, which mentions the written revelation of the Qur’an and the written revelations of the previous Scriptures and the plural “words” of God in 6:115 expands it to beyond that one judgment / decree.

  9. He has sent down upon you, [O Muhammad], the Book [written Scripture] in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel.

    نَزَّلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَأَنزَلَ التَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنجِيلَ
    Surah 3:3

    The Qur’an here and other places shows the basic principle that when he says in 6:114-115, “there is no changing the words of God”, that he is including both the decrees (judgments, decisions, rulings on unbelievers and jinn and devils (as in the context of 6:112-113) AND also the written Scriptures of God, because they only we know about those decrees (the ones we know of) – they were written down so that we can know them today.

    Quoting Surah 5:47-48 and 5:68 DOES help me – it proves the Qur’an affirms and claims to protect / guard the previous Scriptures “between the hands” = the Scriptures the Jews and Christians had in their possession at the time.

    There is no way for you to escape the principle.

      There is no “principle” you are trying to twist the Qur’an which is why you keep trying to jump around instead of going down the line one at a time. ALL of these verses you quoted don’t help you but you are too arrogant to admit 6:115 doesn’t mean anything about the Scriptures so we can move on to the next one.

      • Surah 15:9:
        “Verily, we have sent down the Reminder الذکر (Al-Zekr) , and, verily, WE will guard it.”
        إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ – 15:9

        The verse states clearly that God is promising to protect the scripture (the Reminder).

        It also demonstrates that the text of the Holy Bible is not corrupt, nor can it be, by the Qur’an’s own admission.
        If anyone argues that the word “Reminder (Zikr – Arabic)” is only talking about the Qur’an, the following verses refute that argument, since it also refers to the Torah as “Reminder”:
        “And already have we written in the Psalms after the reminder that the earth shall my righteous servants inherit.” Surah 21:105

        And We have already written in the book [of Psalms] after the Reminder (Al Zekr / الذکر that the land [of Paradise] is inherited by My righteous servants.

        These other passages also identify the scriptures in the possession of the Jews and Christians as the Reminder:
        Surah 16:43
        وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ إِلَّا رِجَالًا نُّوحِي إِلَيْهِمْ ۚ فَاسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ – 16:43

        SAHIH INTERNATIONAL
        And We sent not before you except men to whom We revealed [Our message]. So ask the people of the message (Al-Zekr = the Reminder) if you do not know.

        Surah 21:7
        And We sent not before you (O Muhammad SAW) but men to whom We inspired, so ask the people of the Reminder [Scriptures – the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel)] if you do not know.

        Surah 21:48

        And We had already given Moses and Aaron the criterion (Al-Furqan – الفرقان )and a light and a reminder ذکرا for the righteous

        Surah 40:53-54.

        And, indeed We gave Musa (Moses) the guidance, and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit the Scripture [i.e. the Taurat (Torah)],

        A guide and a reminder ذکری for men of understanding.

        So, the previous Scriptures are also promised the be protected.
        “there is no changing the words of God” – the principle stands.

  11. Contextually that makes no sense your entire argument is essentially let’s ignore:

    1. Context of the passage/chapter
    2. No scholarship agrees
    3. The passage is used in other places for the decree
    4. Other places in the Quran elaborate more on the passage which states its a decree
    5. The chapter was not sent down about the Scriptures

    And go with my bias, no evidence having opinion, that ignores what is clear for ambiguity as I continue to just make more and more stuff up with no evidence other than “I feel” this is what it means. I’m going to help you out Ken, this is not the Bible, NOBODY CARES about you or my opinion and one cannot make things up out of thin air. Muslims care about E.V.I.D.E.N.C.E.

It honors the seriousness of the temple and the sacrificial system with Jesus being the ultimate and final sacrificial lamb for sins; yet your book is the one that almost completely ignores the sacrificial system in the OT. (Yet affirms it in an ironic way in Surah 37:107. “We have ransomed him with a mighty sacrifice.”
        Except your book says there is continuity from OT to John the Baptist. See the quotes and connections from the book of Malachi to John the Baptist in Matthew, Mark, Luke. Luke 1:17 – quotes from Malachi that he came in the spirit and power of Elijah. There is only 430 years between Chronicles, (not 1,000) the last book written in OT to John the Baptizer and Jesus. All the NT books are quoting the OT. You totally choked on that. Jesus Himself and the rest of the NT said He is the fulfillment of all the OT.
