Quranic & Biblical Differences:-
The following are just a few examples of very important differences between the original Biblical NAMES and EVENTS and those recounted, invariably, wrongly or at odds, in the Quran.
Since the Quran asserts that both the Bible and the Quran are the words of Allah, then it is impossible for any true DIVINITY to give TWO OPPOSITE, contradictory and unreliable versions of the SAME EVENTS and CHARACTERS.
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#
*** Anyone who has ever read the Bible, even if SUPERFICIALLY, would know that there were TEN PLAGUES and not NINE.
No amount of distortions and contortions attempted by the followers of Muhammad to SQUARE the CIRCLE of Quranic errors would succeed for the simple reason that the records show otherwise ***
66: 12 And Mary [Mariam] the daughter of `Imran who guarded her chastity; and We breathed into her (body) of Our spirit; and she testified to the truth of the words of her Lord and of His Revelations and was one of the devout (Servants).
#5551 'Imran was traditionally the name of the father of Mary the mother of Jesus: see n. 375 to iii. 35. She was one of the purest of women, though the Jews accused her falsely of unchastity: cf. xix. 27-28.
19: 28 "O sister of Aaron! thy father was not a man of evil nor thy mother a woman unchaste!"
#2481 Aaron the brother of Moses was the first in the line of Israelite priesthood. Mary and her cousin Elisabeth (mother of Yahya) came of a priestly family, and were therefore, "sisters of Aaron" or daughters of 'Imran (who was Aaron's father). See n. 375 to iii. 35. Mary is reminded of her high lineage and the unexceptionable morals of her father and mother. How, they said, she had fallen, and disgraced the name of her progenitors!#
*** No follower of Muhammad can bring forth proof of such a 'tradition' anywhere in the New Testament. The Gospels do not give the name of the father of Mary.
The above explanation was forced upon the translator of the Quran to COVER UP the fact that there is an incredible ERROR and FLASEHOOD in the story of Mary as described in the Quran.
The Quran erroneously assumed that Mariam, the SISTER of Moses and Aaron, is the SAME as Mary the MOTHER of Jesus.
This error alone, would negate the VERACITY of the Quran since it would have been impossible for the angel Gabriel, who according to the ORIGINAL story in the Gospels, was the one who PREDICTED the birth of Jesus to Mary in the first place.
No messenger of any God could make such a mistake, except in the circumstance where Allah is NOT the same as the God of Israel and
4: 157 That they said (in boast) "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary the Apostle of Allah"; but they killed him not nor crucified him but so it was made to appear to them and those who differ therein are full of doubts with no (certain) knowledge but only conjecture to follow for of a surety they killed him not.
158 Nay Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power Wise.
*** Unfortunately for Muhammad's Quran, all the Gospels assert that Jesus died on the Cross.
With this single verse, Muhammadan Islam DESTROYS the whole of Christianity, since without DEATH there would be no RESURRECTION.
Without Death & Resurrection, there would be no purpose for Christianity.
Yet again, the Quran makes the angel Gabriel either a LIAR or a FOOL for allegedly 'revealing' to Muhammad such gross and ungodly MENDACITIES***
28: 6 To establish a firm place for them in the land and to show Pharaoh Haman and their hosts at their hands the very things against which they were taking precautions.
#3331 Haman was evidently Pharaoh's minister, not to be confounded with a Haman who is mentioned in the Old Testament (Esther iii.1), as a minister of Ahasuerus (Xerxes) King of Persia, the same who invaded Greece, and ruled from B.C. 485 to 464.
28: 38 Pharaoh said: "O Chiefs! no god do I know for you but myself: therefore O Haman! light me a (kiln to bake bricks) out of clay and build me a lofty palace that I may mount up to the god of Moses: but as far as I am concerned I think (Moses) is a liar!"
#3371 I understand his speech to his minister Haman to be sarcastic. But some Commentators have taken it very seriously and imagined that he actually thought of reaching the heavens by building lofty towers#
40: 24 To Pharaoh Haman and Qarun; but they called (him) "a sorcerer telling lies!"...
#4390 Here are three types of Unfaith, each showing a different phase, and yet all united in opposition to the Truth and Mission of Moses. (1) Pharaoh is the type of arrogance, cruelty, and reliance on brute force; cf. xxviii. 38-39. (2) Haman was Pharaoh's minister (n. 3331 to xxviii. 6; also xxviii. 38): he was the type of a sycophant who would pander to the vanity of any man in power. (3) Qarun excelled in his wealth, was selfish in its use, and overbearing to the poor (xxviii. 76-81, and n. 3404). They all came to an evil end eventually#
29: 39 (Remember also) Qarun Pharaoh and Haman: there came to them Moses with Clear Signs but they behaved with insolence on the earth; yet they could not overreach (Us)
*** Once more does the translator have to resort to DECEPTION, LIES and the TWISTING of History and the Bible, to EXPLAIN AWAY the fact that the name HAMAN appears ONLY in the story of ESTHER of c.400BC and NOT with Pharoh & Moses of c.1450BC.
Once again does the Quran describe a story which is totally INCOMPATIBLE with its ORIGINAL in the Bible.
Yet again, the reader should be made aware that no genuine DIVINITY would give TWO CONTRADICTORY versions of the same story ***
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 5.293 Narrated byAl Bara
The companions of (the Prophet) Muhammad who took part in Badr, told me that their number was that of Saul's (i.e. Talut's) companions who crossed the river (of Jordan) with him and they were over three-hundred-and-ten men. By Allah, none crossed the river with him but a believer. (See Qur'an 2.249)
*** 2:249 When Talut set forth with the armies he said: "Allah will test you at the stream; if any drinks of its water he goes not with my army; only those who taste not of it go with me; a mere sip out of the hand is excused." But they all drank of it except a few. When they crossed the river he and the faithful ones with him they said: "This day we cannot cope with Goliath and his forces." But those who were convinced that they must meet Allah said: "How oft by Allah's will hath a small force vanquished a big one? Allah is with those who steadfastly persevere."
Wrong Leader, Wrong Time and Wrong Place. The Quran is, here again, in manifest ERROR.
Once again do the followers of Muhammad try to explain away such MENDACITIES and still have it all wrong every time.
This story is regarding Joshoua, not Talut [Saul], as in-
Judges 7: 6 " And the number of those who lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men, but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.." ***
*** It is illogical and inconceivable that the angel Gabriel could have and would have 'revealed' so many LIES, STUPIDITIES and CONTRADICTIONS to the Bible if he were the messenger of the God of Israel and Jesus.
These verses and 'revelations' can ONLY make sense the readers realise that they are actually the SECRETIONS of Muhammad's thoughts, ideas and imagination but cleverly projected into the unsuspecting mouth of Allah, the supreme rock god of the Pagan Quraysh tribe, embedded in the corner wall of the Ka'ba, called the BLACK STONE.
As all THINKING human beings KNOW, rocks and meteorites can NEVER, EVER, REVEAL anything to mankind ***
