Respected Dr. Sahib,
Sorry, but I have to disagree with you on this core “tehreef” issue of the Torah and the Injeel. I really do not see any ‘tehreef’ in Torah and Injeel being mentioned in the Qur’an as these books were existent at the time of the revelation of the Qur’an. In fact, it is just the opposite. The Qur’an makes clear arguments from these scriptures telling the Jewish and Christian to read their own books where Prophet Muhammad is prophesied…that they were trying to hide the facts given in these books. The verses 5:44, 4:47, 6:154 clearly describe Torah and Injeel as “books of light and guidance’. Now these are not some phantom book s but real books that the Jews used to read and study-and yet not follow it. The Qur’an, however, does indicate that the POB have a tendency to “change words from their places” to win a petty point but that does not mean the Scriptures had the words changed already that they were not aware of.
That said, I must say that TODAY, the Torah and Injeel are definitely not the same books that they used to be at the time of the Prophet (pbuh). And there is a subtle reference to this prophesy to be found in the Qur’an. So if you say that TODAY these books are not the same, I can agree with you there.
