Quran – The Literal word of God?
The Muslims consider the Quran as the “literal word of Allah. Let’s see how true this is.
“In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful” (Quran 1.1)
The very first verse of the Quran very clearly proves that the Quran is the word of Muhammad and not God or anyone else. Why would Allah say “In the name of Allah”? It makes no sense.
“Allah has said: “Take not (for worship) two gods: for He is just One Allah: then fear Me (and Me alone).”” (Quran 16:51)
The first three words prove that the speaker of this Quranic verse was Muhammad.
“No disaster strikes except by permission of Allah. And whoever believes in Allah – He will guide his heart. And Allah is Knowing of all things.” (Quran 64:11)
The above is a statement made by Muhammad and not Allah or anyone else. It makes no sense for Allah to say “Allah is knowing all things”.
“Allah has not made for any man two hearts in his (one) body: nor has He made your wives whom ye divorce by Zihar your mothers: nor has He made your adopted sons your sons. Such is (only) your (manner of) speech by your mouths. But Allah tells (you) the Truth, and He shows the (right) Way.” (Quran 33:4)
The above is a statement made by Muhammad and not Allah or anyone else. It makes no sense for Allah to say “But Allah tells you the truth”.
There are so many verses in the Quran which very clearly prove that the Quran is the word of Muhammad and not God or any other entity.
