Errors in the Quran
There are many charges by misguided Muslims that the Bible has contradictions and errors. But they forget that the Quran has many errors and contradictions since it is the product of one strong man. This strongman even copied from the Bible and distorted what he copied. Many of the subjects in the Quran could only have come from the Bible as clearly shown by how close they mimic the Bible.
One such example is the passage in the Bible found at Luke 1:35 and the equivalent passage in the Quran at Sura 3:47. So this borrowing with out credit can be clearly seen, let's look at Luke 1:35, "And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Spirit shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee: wherefore also the holy thing which is begotten shall be called the Son of God." (American Standard Version; ASV). Now let's look at the 'borrowed' passage in the Quran at Sura 3:47, "She said, "My Lord, how can I have a son, when no man has touched me?" He said, "GOD thus creates whatever He wills. To have anything done, He simply says to it, `Be,' and it is."
Interestingly although both the Quran's 'Be' and the Bible's (in some translations only) overshadow both refer to exactly the same thing, but use different words, some Muslims do not comprehend this and think overshadow has bad connotations which of course it does not. Both these passages refer to God's (YHWH) using his active force or power referred to in the Bible as Spirit or Holy Spirit to implant the life force of his only begotten Son, that we know as Jesus (Yeshua) into the womb of the virgin Mary as recorded in Matthew 1:18-25, "Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But when he thought on these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from their sins. 22 Now all this is come to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, And they shall call his name Immanuel; which is, being interpreted, God with us. 24 And Joseph arose from his sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took unto him his wife; 25 and knew her not till she had brought forth a son: and he called his name JESUS." (ASV).
More importantly these Muslims clearly forget that if their were any errors or contradictions in the Bible, the work by their strong man would even be in greater error than it is. Muhammad changed many things he copied to give them the twist he desired thus creating error as he deviated from God’s (YHWH’s) word; now if there had been errors in the Bible as some Muslims wrongly claim then their Quran would be more distorted than it is.
This forum is thus for discussion of the errors and contradictions in the Quran.
