REBUTTAL - 7
April 23rd, 2008 by Dr. Shabbir
Mr Robert Spencer: “The Qur’an occupies a place that has no parallel in Western Civilization. The Qur’an is considered by Muslims and traditional Islamic Theology to be dictated word for word by God Himself, by Allah Himself and through the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad. As a result, every word of it is the words of God Himself. Every word of the Qur’an, unless it is cancelled by another section of the Qur’an itself, is valid for all times and cannot be questioned, cannot be reformed, cannot be changed within an Islamic context. …”
Answer: Dear Sir! … “Dictated word for word by God Himself through the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad.” What can be a more incandescent Truth with a capital T?
Doesn’t this fact alone, besides countless others, suffice to make the Qur’an a Unique Book in the whole world? Unique, without parallel, indeed! No wonder, God calls it the best treasure we humans may amass.
10:57 O Mankind! There has now come to you Enlightenment from your Sustainer, and a healing for all that troubles your hearts, and guidance, and grace to all who embrace it.
10:58 Say, “In this bounty of God and in His grace – in this, then, let them rejoice. It is better than all the treasures that they may amass.”
And Sir, this Unique Book (Not The Barbaric, Manmade Shari’ah) is going to dominate all human thought as Bernard Shaw and J.W. Goethe et al have predicted. Muslims are the first ones to denounce and reject the Mullah-peddled “Shari’ah Laws” as we have recently seen in Turkey and Pakistan. Please be assured that the Qur’an embodies nothing but a Most Benevolent Message for the entire mankind as it will gradually unfold in my humble rebuttal.
9:32 They seek to extinguish God’s light (the Qur’an) by their utterances. But God will not allow this to pass, for He has willed to spread His light in all its fullness even though the rejectors may detest it.
9:33 He is the One Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the True Religion (The Divinely Prescribed System of Life), that He may cause it to prevail over all religions and systems of life, even though the idolaters may detest it.
CANCELLATION, ABROGATION OR NASKH:
Not a single verse in the Qur’an is abrogated. The following is simple and self-explanatory.
2:106 Any message of aforetime that We revoke or cause to be lost to history, We replace it with a better or similar one. Do you not know that God is the Supreme Controller of all things and events?
[Some of the People of the Book question why a new revelation was necessary. The evolution of human civilization has now come to a point where the Final Message for all mankind can be given, widely distributed, implemented and preserved forever. So, the Qur’an is now the perfected Message for all mankind at all times; its exact preservation “word for word” being guaranteed by none but the Almighty Himself. 5:48, 6:115-116, 15:9, 16:101, 22:52]
