Facebook posting about the Torah and Islam.

OK Faaizan, I don’t like to put good people in the corner 🙂

Mohammad did never say that the Torah was corrupted.
He blamed the Jews for not following the Torah.
He proved that Torah was unchanged by saying:
“Bring then the Taurat and read it, if you are truthful.”

So, the need to give the Koran is in this verses:

[6.155] And this is a Book We have revealed, blessed; therefore follow it and guard (against evil) that mercy may be shown to you.
[6.156] Lest you say that the Book was only revealed to two parties before us and We were truly unaware of what they read.
[6.157] Or lest you should say: If the Book had been revealed to us, we would certainly have been better guided than they, so indeed there has come to you clear proof from your Lord, and guidance and mercy. Who then is more unjust than he who rejects Allah’s communications and turns away from them? We will reward those who turn away from Our communications with an evil chastisement because they turned away.

Arabs couldn’t read the Torah because wasn’t written in their language.

Now you can read it because it is translated.
Now you can follow it, because you can read it.

The Torah corruption is not mentioned anywhere in Koran.
It is Muslim interpretation and justification of not following the Torah.
It is a way to separate from the Jews belief.
But Mohammad clearly said that He gives you what is in the Torah.

On the contrary, Jesus brings New Law, which is verified by many prophets and which directly is proclaimed in Jeremiah’s prophecy as The New Covenant.

Muslims should not (MUST NOT) blame the scriptures for corruption.
God’s word can not be corrupted.
It is humans who twist and corrupt the meaning of God’s word (teaching).
Even now the Christian church corrupts the teaching of Jesus, but it stays clear and unchanged in the scriptures.

Don’t ever say that God’s word can be corrupted, my friend.
Say “Do not twist the meaning of God’s words”

And now it appears (if you agree with me) that Muslims received the Torah but in a way which is understandable for Arabs and covers their culture, habits, and needs.
The base is the same “The True Word of God”.
The details deffer.

Don’t keep spite and anger toward Jews, because they are your brothers in Faith.
Don’t keep spite and anger toward Christians, because they are followers of Isa. Try to understand Isa’s teaching, and say not that it is corrupted.
It is the church interpretation which is corrupted and Christians belief and actions (of course not all of them 🙂

Have in mind that corruption comes from humans.
Muslims are humans too 😉

Muslims Against Sharia

Many people talk about the need to reform Islam. Now you can stop talking and start helping.

With the help of our readers we went through the Koran and removed every verse that we believe did not come from Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate. However, it is possible that we missed something, and we could use your help. If you find verses in the reformed version of the Koran that promote violence, divisiveness, religious or gender superiority, bigotry, or discrimination, please let us know the number of the verse and the reason why it should be removed. Please email your suggestions to koran-AT-reformislam.org.

When we finish editing process, we would like to publish Reform Koran in as many languages as possible. If you could help with translation or distribution of the Reform Koran, please email us at koran-AT-reformislam.org. If you could provide financial support, please visit our support page.

This verse from The Holy Quran, stqatest that the books before The Quran were curropted!

{So woe to [the ones] who write the Book with their hands; thereafter they say, “This is from [the providence of] Allah.” That they may trade it for a little price; So, woe to those for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they have earned.}* (Al-Baqarah 2: 79)

There is no law in Torah that is harmful – they are all good for us.
