The Scriptures According to Islam

Contrary to what you may have heard, Muslims claim that more than the Qur'an is the Word of God.

The Scriptures according to Islam

The following are all scriptures which Muslims hold to be from Allah.

  • Torah
  • Pslams
  • Gospel of Jesus
  • Qu’ran
They believe that all of these, besides the Qur'an, have become corrupted or changed.

Response: Dead Sea Scroll.  These prove that the handwritten copies of Scripture have been accurately preserved throughout history. We could then ask Muslims, "How do you know that the Qur'an hasn’t been corrupted?"

Theological Argument:

Who is stronger? God or man?  If they were God’s words when they were written down, how could man have the power to change them?  If man can corrupt God’s word, how do you know if the Qu’ran can’t be corrupted.  God will save and protect his word, and when we read the whole of Scriptures, we see that the Qur'an contradicts God's words that came before. 

Logical Argument:

When did the Bible become corrupted?  How did it become corrupted? Who corrupted it?  Did Muhammad tell Muslims to read the Bible in the Qu’ran?  The answer is, yes!  This means hen the Bible must have been corrupted after Muhammad.  However, we clearly can see that the Bible's text has not been altered after Muhammad.  In fact, if we read the Bible as the Qur'an dictates, then we'll see that the Qur'an contradicts the previous Word of God.  

It's truly amazing, the Qur'an actually says that the Bible is the Word of God.  What an awesome bridge to use to present the Gospel of Christ and to share a copy of the Bible with someone who is Muslim.
