Mu'min Bhai,

The Rabbi inadvertently speaks his heart when he shows his delight about Surah Baqarah 2:163 proclaiming pure Monotheism.

2:163 Remember, your God is One God. There is no god but He, the Beneficent, the Merciful. [Only His Laws are operative in the Universe, and any nation falling in conflict will suffer self-destruction. 1:1-2, 6:45. Al-Ilah = Allah = The One True God = The Sovereign = The One Worthy of service, obedience and worship. Ilah = God = It also refers to false gods, depending upon the context]

And again the Rabbi is delighted on the Qur'an rejecting Jesus Christ as the Son of God, the Crucifixion and Death of Jesus on the Cross etc.

3:54 They (the opponents) made some plans, but so did God. God is the most Virtuous of planners. [They schemed to arrest and crucify Jesus but God assured him]

3:55 God said, “O Jesus! I will cause you to die of natural causes, will exalt you in My Sight and will clear you of the slander of the disbelievers. And I will cause those who truly follow you to dominate those who are rejecting you, until the Day of Resurrection. Eventually, all of you will return to Me. Then I will judge among you about that wherein you used to differ.” [Wafaat = Dying of natural causes. Rafa’ = Exalt = Raising in honor. Ilayya = To Me = Allegorically, in My Sight. God being Omnipresent is not confined to the heavens]

4:157 And for claiming, “We killed the Messiah Jesus son of Mary, God’s Messenger.” They never killed him and never crucified him. But it appeared so to them and the matter remained dubious to them. Those who hold conflicting views on this issue are but confused. They have no real knowledge and they are following mere conjecture. Most certainly, they never killed him.

4:158 Nay, God exalted him in His Sight. (They had plotted thinking that crucifixion was a death of curse. But God raised him in honor. See 3:55). God is Almighty, Wise.

Isn't he being adamant then on claiming the unique infallibility of the Old Testament? So is the state of their hearts that the Qur'an beautifully describes as:

2:88 And they (Jews) say, “Our hearts are bags full of knowledge.” Nay, but God has deprived them of His grace for their persistent rejection of the Truth. Therefore, only a few of them will choose to believe. [2:6. La’nah = Deprivation of God’s grace = God’s rejection = Condemnation = Curse = Downgrading = Abasement = Lasting humiliation]

41:5 And so they say, "Our hearts are veiled from what you invite us to, and (consider) there is deafness in our ears, and that between us and you is a barrier. So, do as you will, and we do as we will.”

41:6 (O Prophet) say to them, "I am only a human being like you. It has been revealed to me that your God is one and the same; the One and only God. So, take the straight path to Him and seek His forgiveness. There is great loss for those who choose gods besides God, [Mushrikeen = Idolaters = Those who worship their own desires. Wayl = Woe = Ultimate loss = Destruction]

Shabir Ally rightly points out Deuteronomy and Song of Solomon to make his point.

I have pointed out hundreds of indisputable errors in the Old and New Testaments in my book, THUS SPEAKS THE BIBLE.
