A careful reader of Answering Islam submitted the following observation which we thought was worth publishing as a short article.

Why is there no clear statement about Bible Corruption in the Qur'an?

Concerning what the Qur'an says about the Bible. Here is an argument which I have not seen on your site:

The Qur'an claims to be a book which is COMPLETE; a book fully DETAILED and an explanation of EVERYTHING, where NOTHING is omitted (Cf. Surahs 6:38; 6:114; 6:126; 10:37, 12:11; 16:89).

Consequently, we would expect to find a plain verse from the Qur'an saying explicitly that the text of the Torah and/or Gospel is/are falsified, since the Qur'an claims not to have omitted anything. However, we NEVER find such a verse in the entire Qur'an.

In fact, the Muslims have so far been unable to produce even one verse which clearly says that the text of the Torah and/or the Gospel are falsified. The Muslim propagandists speculate and extrapolate some verses such as 5:14; 5:48; 3:78; 2:75-79, which NEVER say in a way that is clear that the Torah and/ or the Gospel is/are falsified. Furthermore, these verses, once correctly read, actually prove to be a confirmation of the authenticity of the Torah and the Gospel.

A question for Muslims: Why did Allah fail to explicitly and clearly announce that the text of the Torah and Gospel have been falsified, especially when this is such an important topic of discussion in Muslim and Christian polemics?

Another question: Muslims often say at the end of their articles that Allah has more knowledge (i.e., "Allah knows best"). If this is the case, then why do you affirm with such fierceness a thing that Allah did not say at all in the Qur'an? Are you more erudite than Allah?

Rather than make exaggerated claims, and attribute things to Allah that he did not say, the Muslims should listen to what the Qur'an really says about the Torah and the Gospel. However, that would lead to the conclusion that the Qur'an is not from God.
