1. God Revealed it
"Those who disbelieve in
the Reminder when it comes unto them (are guilty), for indeed it is an
unassailable Scripture. Falsehood cannot come at it from before it or
behind it. (It is) a revelation from the Wise, the Owner of Praise"
"Praise be to Allah* Who
has revealed the Scripture unto His slave, and has not placed therein
any crookedness (but has made it) straight" (Quran 18:1-2).
"Allah has (now) revealed
the fairest of statements, a Scripture consistent" (Quran 39:23).
"A Quran in Arabic,
containing no crookedness" (Q 39:28).
2. God Preserves it
God has promised to always preserve His book.
"Surely We, even We, revealed
the Reminder [the Quran], and We verily are its Guardian."
The Quran contains no additions. It
remains today letter for letter as it was
revealed over 1400 years ago. Nothing added, nothing taken away.
Two of the original manuscripts of the Quran
prepared 1400 years ago still exist today. One is in the Topkapi Saray
Museum in Istanbul, Turkey, and the other in Tashkent, Russia. Both of
these are identical in content with the Quran available all over
the world today.
You Can Examine it!
"Will they not then consider the Quran
with care? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found
therein much discrepancy." (Quran 4:82)
Here God challenges people to find an error
in the Quran. If it contains errors then it cannot be from God.
If, on the other hand, it had been the production of a human being it
would definitely contain errors. A human writer 1400 years ago would have
written on the basis of the level of knowledge of his or her day. And
many of those ideas would turn out to be false later as humankind learns
more, especially in the field of science. But the Quran is remarkably
free of error. To learn more about this, write for a free brochure titled
