CHAPTER TWELVE: A BRIEF COMPARISON OF TOPICS IN THE BIBLE AND THE QUR’AN

12.2. Areas of disagreement


  • The Qur'an is the last book from Allah. It is uncreated and eternal; every word and letter in it is written in what they call the “Preserved Slate”. This is an axiom to which most Muslims hold fast.
  • Jesus was sent to the Israelites with a book called the “Injeel,” or gospel. This book has been changed, along with the Torah. Islam is however very unclear as to what it means by the “Torah.” Sometimes it clearly refers to the five books of Moses, but other places it seems to mean all of the Old Testament.
  • All prophets and messengers are infallible. Muslims therefore have a hard time explaining away the sins of prophets in the Qur’an and Hadith.
  • There is no original sin and every human is born innocent and sinless.
  • Christ is a mere created human being. Muslims believe that Jesus never claimed to be God, and that Christians (or more precisely the apostle Paul) made him into God.
  • Allah can never become a man; incarnation is completely rejected.
  • Believing in the Trinity is a form of polytheism which is the only sin that is unforgivable.
  • Christ is still alive in heaven and he will come back before the last day.
  • Anything in the Bible, other than some verses that might be twisted to give the impression of a prophecy about Mohammed, is rejected. Muslims say that if anything in the Bible agrees with the Qur’an, they don’t need it; if it doesn’t agree with the Qur’an, they don’t want it.
