This is a Response to
to Prove that from the entire
Sam Shamoun of <answering-islam.org> has recently renewed his personal
challenge to me which is directly related to the text of the QURAN.
Here is its URL:
HERE IS AN ADDITIONAL SHOCKER. Meherally thinks that by appealing
to a subheading in his article he will somehow refute my original challenge
and this constitutes as proof for his claim. Since Meherally's subheading
is not part of the Quran, this only further demonstrates that Meherally
is using deceptive tactics to evade the fact that he has been exposed.
So we issue our challenge again:
WE CHALLENGE MEHERALLY
TO PRODUCE ONE SINGLE VERSE FROM THE ENTIRE QURAN WHERE IT SAYS THAT GOD
REVEALED THE TORAH TO MOSES. SHOW US A SINGLE PLACE FROM YOUR BOOK WHERE
MOSES IS SAID TO HAVE RECEIVED THE TORAH.
My response to the above:
Any scholar who is sincerely
and seriously interested in knowing the truth, pertaining to an important
issue relating to the Qur'an, need not just call for "ONE
but should rather examine several related
Revealed Verses to that topic and then try to arrive at a True Conclusion.
Quoted below are some of the correlated verses on the topic:
Note: In the past,
Sam Shamoun had taken exception to the words that were placed within the
parentheses by the translator Abdullah Yusuf Ali. I have below quoted the
translated texts done by Muhammad M. Pickthall. Sam may ignore
the words that are within the brackets.
"Who revealed the Book which Moses
brought, a light and guidance for mankind,
which ye have put on parchments which ye show, but ye hide much
(thereof), and by which ye were taught that which ye knew not yourselves
nor (did) your fathers (know it)? Say: Allah...."
Qur'an 6: 91
1. The above quoted
text from the Qur'an acknowledges two things. i) It confirms that Allah
had Revealed a Book to Prophet Moses (p.b.u.h.). ii) That this Revealed
Book was written down on the parchments by his followers. It is a historical
fact that the TORAH was originally caligraphed by the Jewish Rabbis on
the SCROLLS that were made from parchments.
"We gave unto Moses the Scripture,
and We appointed it a guidance for
2. The above verse
confirms that within the Scripture that was given to Moses was a Book of
Guidance for the Children of Israel. This particular Guidance,
Commanded the Children of Israel, to Choose NO ONE Besides Allah as their
Guardian. The famous fundamental CREDO of the Jewish Faith known as SHEMA,
directly acknowledges the above quoted Guidance. It
reads: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God,
the Lord is one." This Jewish SHEMA is
recorded in the Fifth Book of Jewish TORAH. Please refer to Deuteronomy
the Children of Israel, saying: Choose
no guardian beside Me." Qur'an 17 : 2
"Lo! We did reveal the Torah,
wherein is guidance and a light,
by which the
3. This verse confirms that
the Revealed BOOK of GUIDANCE and LIGHT
that was sent for judging the acts and deeds of JEWS ("the Children
of Israel") was the TORAH. The earlier quoted Verses and the next quoted
Verse from the Qur'an give us the specific details of that GUIDANCE
for the "Children of Israel", which were revealed to Prophet Moses.
Prophets who surrendered (unto Allah) judged
the Jews, and the rabbis and
the priests (judged) by such of Allah's Scripture
as they were bidden to
observe, and thereunto were they witnesses."
Qur'an 5 : 44
Then, when the anger of Moses abated,
he took up the tablets, and in their inscription there was guidance
and mercy for all those who fear their Lord.
4. The heart and soul
of the TORAH happens to be the TEN COMMANDMENTS that were engraved upon
the TWO TABLETS of stones, that Prophet Moses received on Mount Sinai.
The above quoted verse from the Qur'an directly and conclusively acknowledges
the fact that these TABLETS, with the inscribed GUIDANCE, were in
the personal possession of Moses. The inscribed text of these
TABLETS are recorded in the Second Book of the Jewish TORAH called the
Book of Exodus. Please refer to Exodus chapter 20, verses 3 to 17.
Qur'an 7: 154
Putting all the FOUR Verses together resolves
the issue conclusively...
IF SAM HAS A PROBLEM ADDING 2 + 2 = 4, he
better join a Primary School...
That HE might justify
and prove falsehood false, distasteful though it be to those in guilt.
Qur'an 8 : 8
