WHY IS QUR'AN THE WORD OF GOD?
The Book has more than 6000 verses on extremely diverse subjects such as history, commands, laws, science, the future, personalities, humanity, the universe, psychology, animate and inanimate objects, bad and good societies, good and evil, human behavior, pragmatism (do this and this will happen - always), oceans and land, planets, rocks, trees, origin of life, evolution, water-cycle, animals, guidance, the permanent laws of rise and fall of nations, life and death, the Hereafter, the law of recompense, success vs failure, and much more. Yet, we find not a single error or contradiction in the Qur'an as it claims. I tried very hard to find just one error or contradiction but failed. And I read the Book closely at least 25 times.
If you learn the Quranic Arabic, you will marvel at the style, eloquence, choice of words, the beautiful rhythm and the noble guidance practicable for all times. It is the only text that is neither prose nor poetry, sounds an impossible proposition but true it is.
There is overwhelming internal evidence that the Book cannot be a human effort. No wonder that not a single person in the last 1400 years has been able to take the challenge and bring one little Surah like it. The opponents fought 82 battles against Muslims during the exalted Prophet's lifetime and got beaten again and again. The choice was clear. The most eloquent Arabs could have composed one little Surah like this and that would have been the demise of Islam. So, why did they fight those 82 battles?
CAN YOU BRING ANY BOOK THAT COMES A SHADE CLOSE TO THE QUR'AN?
Hadith literature? Forget it. Even the language miserably pales in comparison. What to talk about the stupidities, errors and contradictions! Anyone can have a taste of Hadith in my book "THE CRIMINALS OF ISLAM".
