|The allegation that the Bible has been changed contradicts:
• the Qur'ān
• testimony of the sahaba
• early Islamic commentators
• historical evidence
|We are happy to refute all the blasphemous allegations against God’s Holy Word, for each answer powerfully demonstrates the truth of Scripture.|
|Zakir Naik has earned himself a reputation for misinformation:
• Eminent Muslims against Naik
• Fatwas against Naik
• Naik's false statistics
• The unchallenged debater?
• ‘Scientific miracles' in Qur'ān?
| • just for the Jews?
• crucified or not?
• The Qur'ānic titles of Jesus
• the only sinless prophet
• the living “Word” of God
This website is committed to refuting the blasphemous and historically false allegation that God's Revelations have been changed. It should be exceedingly obvious that the Almighty God would never allow his Holy Word to be changed. This allegation is indeed blasphemy (كفر, kufr) in its purest form, for it denies that most precious gift of God to mankind.
An honest reading of the Qur'ān makes it clear that the Qur'ān confirms the eternal validity of the previous Scriptures, namely the Kitabul Muqaddas (a.k.a. Bible) comprised of the Tawrat, Zabur, Prophetic Writings, and Injīl:
However, many Muslims do not read these Holy Books or give them their due respect, because of various unfounded objections. The collection of articles below refute all these blasphemous allegations of disbelief against God's Holy Word. We are happy to provide answers to each of these critics' objections, for each answer powerfully demonstrates the truth of God's Word.
The question is, what kind of character did Jesus instill in these disciples to do such outrageous evils? If Naik and Deedat are correct, Jesus must have been a rather feeble moral teacher and leader. Whereas the core teachings of Aristotle, Virgil and Confucius were more or less faithfully followed by centuries of admirers, Jesus apparently scores pathetically low in instilling integrity in his disciples. Is this believable? The God portrayed by Naik and Deedat is certainly not a powerful God, but a feeble God of fiascos and blundering failures. We believe in a God who preserves his scriptures (as the Qur'ān itself testifies, "none can change His Words") and a God who makes his prophets establish a solid legacy of truth. He makes no mistakes in the gradual revelation of his Plan for history.
Naik and Deedat deny Jesus' crucifixion using the ‘swoon theory' which was actually invented only 200 years ago by Western atheists and brought into Islam by the Qadianis recently. They pretend this is the 'Islamic viewpoint', but early authorities like Tabari and Razi held to a different opinion and they allowed for the possibility that Jesus died. This swoon theory is not believed by any serious scholar and has been disproved long ago. Naik pretends that the Injīl never says that Jesus died, though it does so many times. The Qu'ran can easily be reconciled with the account in the Injīl that Jesus did intentionally die on the cross and was raised again.
