The Biblevery clearly describes Ten plagues; Exodus 7.14 to 12.36 :-
(1) Waters turn to Blood (2) Frogs (3) Lice (4) Swarms of Wild Beasts (5) Livestock Epidemic (6) Boils (7) Hail (8) Locusts (9) Darkness (10) Death of the First Born.
The Quran on the other hand describes only NINE; five of which are utterly different from the Bible-
(1) The Rod (2) Radiant Hand (3) Years of Draught (4) Short Crops (5) Human & Animal Epidemics.
Sura 7: 133 "So We sent (plagues) on them wholesale Death [Toofan],(6) Locusts (7) Lice (8) Frogs and (9) Blood: signs openly Self-explained; but they were steeped in arrogance a people given to sin"
17: 101 To Moses We did give NINE Clear Signs: ask the Children of Israel: when he came to them Pharaoh said to him: "O Moses! I consider thee indeed to have been worked upon by sorcery!"
#2308 Nine Clear Signs: see vii. 133, n. 1091. The story of Pharaoh (or a phase of it) is here told with a view to exhibiting the decline of a soul on account of pride in outward power and dignity. (17.101)
2309 To them: i.e., to Pharaoh, as sitting in his Council, with the Chiefs of his people. Cf. vii. 103. The whole scene is described in some detail from the point of view of nations or Ummats in vii. 103-133. (17.101)
2310 At a different and later stage in the scene, Pharaoh's Chiefs call Moses a "sorcerer well-versed" (vii. 109). Here Moses, who had come with the Nine Signs but had not yet shown them, is reproached with being the object of sorcery: he is practically told that he is mad#
*** These are: (1) the Rod (vii. 107), (2) the Radiant Hand (vii. 108), (3) the years of draught or shortage of water (vii, 130), (4) short crops (vii. 130), and the five mentioned in this verse, viz., (5) epidemics among men and beasts, (6) locusts, (7) lice, (8) frogs, and (9) the water turning to blood as agreed upon by the translator/interpreter himself.
Wholesale Death [Toofan] was NOT among the TEN signs/ miracles because it pertained to the drowning of Pharaoh and his charioteers at the crossing of the Sea ***
27: 12"Now put thy hand into thy bosom and it will come forth white without stain (or harm): (these are) among the nine Signs (thou wilt take) to Pharaoh and his people: for they are a people rebellious in transgression.
#3249 Cf. xx. 22. There the expression is: "Draw thy hand close to thy side." As far as the physical act is concerned, the expressions there and here mean the same thing. Moses had a loose-fitting robe. If he put his hand within the folds of the robe, it would go to his bosom on the side of his body opposite to that from which his hand came; i.e., if it was his right hand it would go to the left side of his bosom. The hand comes out white and radiant, without a stain. Ordinarily if the skin becomes white it is a sign of disease or leprosy. Here it was the opposite. It was a sign of radiance and glory from the higher Light. (27.12)
3250 The nine Signs: see n. 1091 to vii. 133. (27.12)
7.133So We sent (plagues) on them wholesale death Locusts Lice Frogs and Blood: signs openly Self-explained; but they were steeped in arrogance a people given to sin.
#1091 In xvii. 101, the reference is to NINE Clear Signs. These are: (1) the Rod (vii. 107), (2) the Radiant Hand (vii. 108), (3) the years of drought or shortage of water (vii, 130), (4) short crops (vii. 130), and the five mentioned in this verse, viz., (5) epidemics among men and beasts, (6) locusts, (7) lice, (8) frogs, and (9) the water turning to blood.
***Is it possible that Gabriel was so ignorant that he did not even know the most important miracles that God visited upon the Egyptians?
Was it really Gabriel speaking to Muhammad or was it Satan pretending to be Gabriel?
How was it possible that Gabriel was MISLEADING and MISINFORMINGMuhammad on almost everything that he quoted from the Bible?
It is inconceivable that God's messenger (Gabriel), was so completely ignorant of what the Almighty did and instructed His servant Moses.
How can Muhammadan scholars explain away or reconcile all these INCONGRUITIES, INCONSISTENCIES, ANOMALIES and MENDACITIES that fill the Quran when compared with and based upon the historical and Biblicalrecords let alone on logic? ***
The QuranASSERTS that Allah gave Moses certain monitions on tablets (of stone), and also that he gave him nine clear signs.( Surah 7. l42, and Surah 17. 103). These two statements have perplexed the commentators very much, and every effort is made by them to reconcile the NINE signs with the TEN Commandments, although it is evident from the Quran itself, that the NINE clear signs refer to the miracles of Moses. [PLAGUES OF EGYPT.]
According to the 'Traditions', Muhammad himself, was more than a little confused in the matter and was totally responsible for the mistakes of the commentators on his book, for it is related in-
Mishkat, book i. c. ii. pt. 2
" that a Jew came to the Prophet and asked him about the nine (sic) wonders which appeared by the hands of Moses. The Prophet said: " (1) Do not associate anything with God, (2) do not steal, (3) do not commit adultery, (4) do not kill, (5) do not take an innocent before the king to be killed, (6) do not practice magic, (7) do not take interest, (8) do not accuse an innocent woman of adultery, (9) do not run away in battle, and especially for you, O Jews, (10) not to work on the Sabbath."
`Abdu 'l-Haqq remarks on this tradition that the Jew asked about the nine (sic)miracles (or plagues) of Egyptand the Prophet gave him theTen Commandments.
This is also asserted to by the following Tirmidi Hadith which is without details-
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 889Narrated bySafwan ibn Assal
A Jewasked his companion to take him to the Prophet (peace be upon him). When they met him, they inquired of him about the NINE clear signs (given to Moses); this was followed by the recital of the relevant Hadith. This made the issue quite clear. In the end both of them kissed his hands and feet and said: We bear witness that you are indeed a Prophet.

*** No Jewwould have asked Muhammad - or any one else for that matter - about NINE miracles of the Plagues of Egypt.
Muhammad - as he repeatedly proves himself in the Quran and Hadiths - got almost all of his collected information jumbled up in Time and Space. His answer to the Plagues question is wrong since it addresses the precepts of the Ten Commadmentswrongly stated instead.
A comparison of the Ten Commandments given by the great Israelite law-giver (Moses), with those recorded in the above tradition, and in the 6th Surah of the Quran,verse 152, will show howIMPERFECTLY and IGNORANTLY,Muhammad was acquainted with the Bible Scriptures ***
The commentator Husain, who wrote four hundred years ago, says the following verses in the Suratu 'l-An`am (vi.) are those Ten Commandmentswhich in every dispensation are incumbent on mankind, and cannot be abrogated (meaning undoubtedly theTen Commandmentsfrom Moses).
6: 152 "SAY: Come, I will rehearse what your Lord hath made binding on you - (1) that ye assign not aught to Him as a partner: (2) and that ye be good to your parents: (3) and that ye slay not your children, beause of poverty; for them and for you will we provide: (4) and that ye come not near to pollutions, outward or inward: (5) and that ye slay not anyone whom Allah hath forbidden you, unless for a just cause. This hath he enjoined on you, to the intent that ye may understand. (6) And come not nigh to the substance of the orphan but to improve it, until he came of age: (7) and use a full measure, and a just balance: We will not task a soul beyond its ability. (8) And when ye give judgment, observe justice, even though if be the affair a kinsman, (9) and fulfill the covenant of Allah. This hath Allah enjoined you for your monition - And, 'this is my right way.' Follow it then: (10) and follow not other paths lest ye be scattered from His path. This hath He enjoined on that we may fear Him"
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 9.10Narrated byAnas bin Malik
The Prophet said, "The biggest of Al-Kaba'ir (the great sins) are (1) to join others as partners in worship with Allah, (2) to murder a human being, (3) to be undutiful to one's parents (4) and to make a false statement," or said, "to give a false witness."
*** All the ANOMALIES, INCONCISTENCIES, INCONGRUITIES,CONTRADICTIONS, MISINFORMATION, DISINFORMATION and MENDACITIES of the Quran can be FULLY and EASILY explained, the moment the reader comes to the ONLY conclusion possible:
That every letter, word, verse/aya or chapter of the Quran are the product of Muhammad's own imagination, his ALTER EGO, but very ingeniously projected into the UNSUSPECTING mouth of Allah, the supreme Rock god of Pagan Arabia, embedded in the wall of the Ka'ba, called the BLACK STONE.
Hence, Allah - the Rock god of Pagan Arabia and the Quran - is NOT and cannot be the God of Israel, of Christianity, of Zoroaster or anybody else. Neither could a ROCK 'REVEAL' anything to anyone.
The CONUNDRUM is now immediately and very logically
