The Perfectly preserved Quran? – 1 Ultimate Myth Busted

Most Muslims have been told this lie so many times that they have believed the theory of the perfectly preserved Quran. It does not take a Scholar to unravel the erroneous premise of the statement. We just need to do a small digging and we can unearth the flaws of this statement. Before we venture further, let us listen to a message from Islamic Scholar Yassir Qadhi which has shaken the Islamic Ummah. He clearly tells us that the standard narrative has holes in it. He accepts that the Emporer is Naked.

Perfectly preserved Quran has holes in it

Few Holes in the Perfectly Preserved Quran

Muslims have believed that the Quran was just the same as it was when it was first delivered, The only reason they believe it is because they have been lied to by their mullahs and they have not taken any courage to inspect the truthfulness of the statement. There are much more problems with Quran. Click here to know more. As Muslims have not taken the action, it’s upon us Christians to tell them the truth. Christians are exhorted to test all things and hence, these kinds of lies do not stand before Christians.

but test everything; hold fast what is good.

1 Thess 5:21

If a text is perfectly preserved, the following should be observed

  • Two copies of the same text should be the exact representation of each other
  • No Additions in any of them
  • No Deletions in any of them
  • Sequences should be not altered

Hole No.1

If you notice the above order of the 114 Chapters of the Quran, you will be amused that it is not laid down in chronological order. Chronologically Chapter 96 (Al-Alaq) should come first. How come it is coming as the 96th Chapter? It is like placing the Birth of Jesus narrative in Acts 15 when disciples are discussing circumcision among gentile Christians. Imagine if the New Testament starts with a chapter from the Epistle of the Philippians and the Second Chapter comes from Rev 13, then comes Mark 16…How miserable it would be to read that.

The same is the story of the Quran. None of those chapters is in sequence. It’s all jumbled up. Would you consider this book even worth reading? Look at this house. Reading the Quran is just like living in this house.

The Perfectly preserved Quran
The Order of the Quran – The Perfectly Preserved Quran?

Surely somebody has played with the order of the book. Why is this book in such a mess? Who messed it up? Is this messed up state a sign of PERFECT PRESERVATION? Would you call this book a Perfectly preserved Quran?

Why don’t Muslims ask this basic question?

Hole No. 2

In the above table, If you have noticed the places these Chapters are revealed, you will notice that few other verses from a different context are inserted into other chapters. For eg. Al-Qalam (Sura 2) Which is a Meccan Sura, we see that verses 17-33 and 48-50 are inserted from a Medinan context. Who did that? Did Allah authorise such mixing up? This is definite proof of human intervention and fiddling with the text. With all these kinds of corruption, it sure looks like the work of some men who could not fit the last jigsaw and hence borrowed verses from a different context.

Why don’t Muslims ask this basic question?

The Perfectly preserved Quran?
However you try, this is a Misfit Jigsaw. Sign of The Perfectly preserved Quran?

Conclusion

I am yet to start finding out textual issues with different variants of the Quran. However, with just the basic investigation, I see that this book is a failed book. It cannot even stand the scrutiny of the standard of a story book or a novel. It does not have an introduction or a conclusion. As a reader where should I start with? Shall I start with Sura 1 or Sura 96 which is the first Chronological Sura. Can any Muslim tell me? I now seem to understand the Yassir Qadhi problem. He is right when he said that the Standard Narrative has Holes in it.
