Big bang between the holy Quran and the Bible( Dr:Zahlool)
Quran, in Arabic, could only have been written by ONE of 3 possible sources:
2.Mohammad (peace be upon him)
(NOTE: The first part is not meant to be a rigorous proof. It is something to
ponder upon. However, the second part, about Mohammad [pbuh] wrote it' contains
more extensive proof.)
Besides the above mentioned sources, Quran couldn't possibly have been written
by ANYONE else.
No other source is possible, because Quran is written in pure, rich, and poetic
Arabic, which was not known to anyone other than the above mentioned sources, at
that time. The Arabic language was at its peak in expression, richness,
vocabulary, artistic, and poetic value during the time the Quran was being
revealed. Anyone speaking the classical Arabic ( the Arabic of Quran at the time
it was revealed) would argue that a non-Arab entity couldn't possibly have
written such an extensive and brilliant piece of literature in the Arabic
language. Quran could only have been written by an Arabic speaking entity.
An entity, who's knowledge, style, vocabulary, grammar, and way of expression
was so powerful that it impacted the entire Arabian peninsula, the east, the
west, and continues to impact people all over the globe today!
At no other time, in the history of Arabic language, had it ever achieved its
peak in expression, literature, and development, than the time of Arabia during
the 6th Century, the time when Quran was being revealed. At no other
time in the history of Arabic language had the language ever achieved its
highest potential than the time of Arabia during the 6th Century, the time when
Quran was being revealed. The language reached its peak in richness,
artistic value, and poetry, during that time. With the Arabic
language at its peak, and the best of Arabic writers, poets present in Arabia,
it is impossible that a non-Arabic speaking entity would write a book like
Quran and have such a dynamite impact on the Arabs!
So only an Arabic speaking entity could have write Quran. With that in mind,
we're left with three choies:
1 - the Arabs wrote it
2 - Mohammad (pbuh) wrote it
3 - Allah (swt) wrote it
Lets examine the three choces one by one.
(1) Arabs Wrote it?
What Quran teaches goes DIRECTLY against the pagan Arab culture, religion, and
gods, that existed before the Quran was revealed. Quran condemns idol
worshipping, but the Arabs, loved their idol gods, and worshipped them
regularly. Quran raised the status of women; the Arabs treated women
next to animals. The Arabs would never write something that goes against their
most important belief of idol worshipping. Quran goes against most of the social
habbits (such as backbiting, slandering, name calling, etc) which the Arabs were
heavily indulged into. For example, the Arabs would call insulting
nicknames such as Abu Jahal (the father of ignorance). Quran condemns and
prohibits taking interest on money, whereas, the Arabs freely levied heavy
interest rates in loans and businesses. Quran condemns and prohibits Alcohol
drinking, whereas, the Arabs consumed alcohol freely. The Quran condemns and
prohibits gambling, whereas, the Arabs were some of the worst gamblers. The
Arabs would never write something so comprehensively against just about all of
their customs and culture and religious beliefs, as the Quran is.
During the time of the Holy Prophet (pbuh), the Arabs would indulge in all the
social habbits that the Quran condemns and prohibits. How can Arabs then write
something that would negate their entire society's norms and ideologies?
Did a group of Arabs or an individual Arab write Quran? Perhaps a rebel
Arab beduoin, or a society's misfit, or someone with different ideals and norms
decided one day to write Quran? The answer to those questions are also 'no'.
Because, if we read Quran, we notice that there is no author! No
individual has his/her name written on the cover of Quran! Anytime an individual
writes a book, he/she writes his/her name on the cover. The author's name
always appears on his/her book, and there is always an author who is credited
for writing that book. No one in the history of the world has EVER claimed to
have written the Quran, nor anyone's name ever appeared in front of the Quran as
bein the 'author'. This is the only book in the world without an author. No one
in the world has ever been accused of writing the Holy Quran, except the Prophet
Mohammad (peace be upon him), by non-muslims.
Quran has no author, and no group or individual in Arabia ever claimed to
have written it, nor any group or an indvidual recited, taught, and explained
Quran except the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) and his followers. The Prophet Mohammad
(peace be upon him) was the only Arabian who first practiced, explained, and
preached Quran, and ended up making a lot of Arab tribes enemies. Any historian,
Muslim or non-Muslim would argue that the only possible source of Quran can be
the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh), the man responsible to recite it, teach it, and
expalin it to the people of Arabia. In fact, many historians
today still think that only Mohammad (pbuh) could possibly have written it.
This leads one to conclude that the Prophet (pbuh) must have written it!
(2) Mohammad (pbuh) wrote it?
First, he was illiterate !! How can an illiterate person come up with such
a rich, poetic, intellectual, and inspiring text that it rocked the entire
Mohammad (pbuh) never went to school! No one taught him. He had no
teacher of any kind in any subjects. How can he have the knowledge of all
the science, astronomy, oceanography, etc that is contained in the Quran? (For
example, the mention of ocean currents, stars, earth, moon, sun and their fixed
paths in Soorah Rahman; and many other scientific statements that are found in
Quran, that I cannot state in this short article)
When Quran was revealed, the Arabic language was at its peak in richness, poetic
value, literature, etc. Quran came and challenged the best literature in
Arabic, the best poetry in Arabic of the time. Mohammad (pbuh) being
illiterate couldnt possibly have come up with something so immaculate that it
even exceded the best of poetry, and literature in Arabic at the time of the
language's PEAK development. Arabic language had never been so rich in
expression, poetic value, vocabulary, and variety in literature, as it was in
the time of Quran. At a time like this, Quran came and exceeded the best
of Arabic in all aspects of the language: poetry, literature, expression, etc.
Any classical Arabic speaker would appreciate the unbeatten, unchallenged, and
unmatched beauty of the language of Quran.
An illiterate man is simply not capable of writing such a book.
Mohammad (pbuh) had no reason to come up with something like Quran, and cause
the entire society of Arabia to become his enemy. Why would he do something like
that? Why would he write something going against almost all of the norms of the
society, and lose his family, relatives, friends, and other loved ones, and not
to mention all the wealth he lost
Quran was revealed over a period of 23 years! A very long time! Is it possible
for someone to maintain the same exact style of Arabic speech , as demonstrated
in Quran, for over 23 years?
Also, what the prophet Mohammad (saaw) used to say is recorded in what we call
his hadeeth (sunnah). If we look at the Arabic style of the hadeeth, and
compare it with the style of Quran, we can clearly see that they are clearly
DIFFERENT, and DISTINGUISHABLE Arabic styles. The prophet (saaw) spoke in
public. It does not make sense that a man has two UNIQUE, Distinguishable,
and completely different styles of speech in public. Yet another reason why
Mohammad (saaw) couldn't possibly have written Quran.
Quran was revealed over a period of 23 years ! A very long time! Is it
possible for someone to maintain the same exact style of Arabic speech , as
demonstrated in Quran over 23 years?
Here's what our famous Muslim Scholar, Ahmad Deedat said:
WAS QURAN WRITTEN OR INSPIRED?
"Behold! The angels said: "O Mary! God has chosen you and purified you - Chosen
you above the women of all nations." Qur'an-3:42
THE SOURCE OF HIS MESSAGE
"Chosen you above the women of all nations." Such an honour is not to be found
given to Mary even in the Christian Bible!
Knowing full-well, and believing as we do, that the whole Quran is the veritable
Word of God, we will nevertheless agree, for the sake of argument, with the
enemies of Muhammed (pbuh) for a moment, that he wrote it. We can now expect
some cooperation from the unbeliever.
Ask him, "Have you any qualms in agreeing that Muhammed (pbuh) was an Arab?"
Only an opinionated fool will hesitate to agree. In that case there is no sense
in pursuing any discussion. Cut short the talk. Close the book!
With the man of reason, we proceed. "That this Arab, in the first instance, was
addressing other Arabs. He was not talking to Indian Muslims, Chinese Muslims,
or Nigerian Muslims. He was addressing his own people - the Arabs. Whether they
agreed with him or not, he told them in the most sublime form - words that were
seared into the hearts and minds of his listeners that Mary the mother of Jesus
-A JEWESS- was chosen above the women of all nations. Not his own mother,
nor his wife nor his daughter, nor any other Arab woman, but a Jewess! Can one
explain this? Because to everyone his own mother or wife, or daughter would come
before other women.
Why would the Prophet of Islam honour a woman from his opposition! and a
Jewess at that! belonging to a race which had been looking down upon his people
for three thousand years? Just as they still look down upon their Arab brethren
SARAH AND HAGAR
The Jews get their cock-eyed racism from their Holy Bible, where they are told
their father, Abraham, had two wives -Sarah and Hagar. They say that they are
the children of Abraham through Sarah, his legitimate wife; that their Arab
brethren have descended through Hagar, a "bondwoman", and that as such, the
Arabs are inferior breed.
Will anyone please explain the anomaly as to why Muhammed (pbuh) (if he is the
author) chose this Jewess for such honour? The answer is simple - HE HAD NO
CHOICE - he had no right to speak of his own desire. "IT IS NO LESS THAN AN
INSPIRATION SENT DOWN TO HIM." (Qur'an, 53:4).
There is a Chapter in the Holy Quran, named Sura Maryam "Chapter Mary" (XIX)
named in honour of Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ (pbuh); again, such an
honour is not to be found given to Mary in the Christian Bible. Out of the
66 books of the Protestants and 73 of the Roman Catholics, not one is named
after Mary or her son. You will find books named after Matthew, Mark, Luke,
John, Peter, Paul and two score more obscure names, but not a single one is that
of Jesus or Mary!
If Muhammed (pbuh) was the author of the Holy Quran, then he would not have
failed to include in it with MARYAM, the mother of Jesus, his own mother -
AMINA, his dear wife - KHADIJA, or his beloved daughter - FATIMA. But No!
No! this can never be. The Quran is not his handiwork!
Another Muslim writes:
From: Abu Abdullah;
Subject: Re: Mohammad Wrote the Quran? [KORAN]
I was reading about the charge that the prophet, Mohammed (pbuh), has written
the Quran himself. Before you go any further in reading this post, please ask
yourself whether you are a honest truth seeker or just another argumentative
person, if the former, continue, otherwise, save your time and jump to the next
Islam is based on faith that is supported by a number of strong miracles such as
knowing what events to take place ahead of time or coming up with supernatural
deeds in front of people. The holy Quran has these signs and much more. First,
The holy Quran predicted many events to take place ahead of the time of the
revelation of that verse; for example, predicting the destruction of Persian
empire at a time where the later had a monumental victory over Rome. If the
prophet, as some people claim, has written the Quran, then he would have put his
future in real jeopardy (50% chance) since neither satellite photos nor
on-ground intelligence personnel were available to him at the revelation time.
Further, numerous details about many natural phenomena were detailed in the
Quran and, until recently, they were proven by experts to be amazingly accurate.
For example of the physical development of the fetus inside the womb along with
timing given by many verses matches exactly what leading authorities in
Embryology are claiming to be recent discoveries. Moreover, verses that
gives descriptions about the creation of the universe and the function of
mountains in balancing earth and many other descriptions/explanations are
available to be read and to be understood. If the prophet was the author,
wouldn't he be prone to make weak inferences similar to those who claim that
earth is square and whoever says otherwise should be killed?
The prophet also has demonstrated many supernatural miracles not by his own
power, but by the power of the creator. He went to Jerasalem back in one night
and gave a detailed description of the carnival that was traveling on that route
and also specific accedint happend to them at that noght (in those days, it
takes a month or so for a round-trip). In another ocasion, he provided water for
an entire army from a small plate between his hands. There are many other
miracles that require serious truth seeker to read about and to think about it.
From the above, it reasonable to conclude that the Quran is not the PROPHET
CREATION. HE HAD NO WAY TO PREDICT ALL THESE EVENTS AND TO BE RIGHT ALL THE
TIME, ESPECIALLY WHEN KNOWING THAT THE PROPHET HIMSELFE WAS ILLITERATE!

Human. Clinically Oriented Embryology"
Keith L. Moore
Philadelphia, W.B. Saunders Co. (1982)
The work by Prof. Keith Moore is probably the most detailed study of
the subject. Prof. Keith Moore is Professor and Chairman of
the Department of Anatomy, University of Toronto.
His books on anatomy and on embryology are used at many medical school as
standard instruction books. The Yale Medical school uses both his books.
The Yale Bookstore phone number for Medical books is: (203) 772-2081. Their
general information number is (203) 432-4771. (New Haven, Connecticut)
He is *the* authority on embryology. I strongly recommend the latest
edition of the latter book as it mentions how accurately the Qur'an describes
Prof. Moore has said: "It has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify
statements in the Qur'an about human development. It is clear to me that
these statements must have come to Muhammed from God or Allah because almost all
of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This
proves to me that Mohammed must have been a messenger of God or Allah."
Prof. Marshal Johnson, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Anatomy and
Director of the Daniel Baugh Institute, Thomas Jefferson University,
He says: "The Qur'an describes not only the development
of external form but emphasizes also the internal stages -- the stages inside
the embryo of its creation and development, emphasizing major events recognized
by contemporary science.... If I were to transpose myself into that era,
knowing what I know today and describing things, I could not describe the things
that were described. I see no evidence to refute the concept that this
individual Mohammed had to be developing this information from some place, so I
see nothing in conflict with the concept that Divine Intervention was

QURAN: Chapter 4, Verse 82: "Do they not consider
(ponder) on the Quran? If it had been from anyone except Allah, they would
surely have found in it much discrepency (contradictions)."
Still unsure or doubtful? Quran is the word of Allah. Allah challenges to His
Chapter 2, Verses 23 & 24: "And if you are in doubt
as to what We have revealed to our servant, Then produce a Chapter like
thereunto; And call your witnesses or helpers besides Allah, If you are true.
But if you cannot, and surely you cannot, Then fear the fire Whose fuel is men
and stones, Which is prepared for those who reject."

verses also! Chapter 10, verse 38 Chapter 11, verse 13 Chapter 17 verse 88
