In the name of Allah most gracious most merciful,

Did Prophet peace be upon him Kiss Torah?

A lie spoken by jews & Christians is refuted Alhamdulilah. They say” When there was a processing in Medina, the Jewish people were carrying the Torah – Prophet went over to the procession and kissed the torah to show his respect to the holy book” with this they say prophet recognised Torah as uncorrupted book hence Muslims should also believe that it is an uncorrupted book.


Among the authentic hadith, Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Abu Dawood, At Tirmidhi etc..

Prophet pbuh never kissed torah.

And Prophet Muhammad pbuh was not seen kissing Quran ,had he kissed Torah it would have been a sunnah.

Some kuffar also manipulate the below hadith Dawood 4434 that he kissed the Torah and then placed it on cushion but below hadith refutes that.

1.Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4434 Narrated by Abdullah Ibn Umar A group of Jews came and invited the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) to Quaff.

So, he visited them in their school. They said:

Abul Qasim, one of our men has committed fornication with a woman; so, pronounce judgment upon them. They placed a cushion for the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) who sat on it and said: Bring the Torah. It was then brought.

He then withdrew the cushion from beneath him and placed the Torah on it saying:

I believed in thee and in Him Who revealed thee. He then said: Bring me one who is learned among you. Then a young man was brought. The transmitter then mentioned the rest of the tradition of stoning similar to the one transmitted by Malik from Nafi’


He then withdrew the cushion from beneath him and placed the Torah on it saying: I believed in thee and in Him Who revealed thee. =liken the way we believe in torah but not the corrupted scripture.


2.Al-Muwatta Hadith
Hadith 41.1
Malik related to me from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar said, “The Jews came to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and mentioned to him that a man and woman from among them had committed adultery.

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, asked them, ‘What do you find in the Torah about stoning?’ They said, ‘We make their wrong action known and flog

them.’ Abdullah ibn Salam said, ‘You have lied! It has stoning for it, so bring the Torah.’ They spread it out and one of them placed his hand over the ayat=verse of stoning. Then he read what was before it and what was after it. Abdullah ibn Salam told him to lift his hand.

He lifted his hand and there was the ayat of stoning. They said, ‘He has spoken the truth, Muhammad. The ayat=verse of stoning is in it.’ So, the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, gave the order and they were stoned. “

Abdullah ibn Umar added, “I saw the man leaning over the woman to protect her from the stones.”
Malik commented, “By leaning he meant throwing himself over her so that the stones fell on him.”


They spread it out: it was there before prophet but he did not kissed Torah.


3.Al-Tirmidhi Hadith-Hadith 194 Narrated byJabir ibn Abdullah Umar ibn al-Khattab brought to Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) a copy of the Torah and said:

Allah’s Messenger, this is a copy of the Torah. He (Allah’s Messenger) kept quiet, and he (Umar) began to read it.

The (color) of the face of Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) underwent a change, whereupon Abu Bakr said: Would that your mother mourn you, don’t you see the face of Allah’s Messenger?

Umar saw the face of Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) and said: I seek refuge with Allah from the wrath of Allah and the wrath of His Messenger. We are well pleased with Allah as Lord, with Islam as religion, and with Muhammad as Prophet. Whereupon Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: By Him in Whose hand is the life of Muhammad.

Even if Moses were to appear before you and you were to follow him, leaving me aside, you would certainly stray into error; for if (Moses) were alive (now), and he found my prophetical ministry, he would have definitely followed me. Transmitted by Darimi.


A copy of Torah was brought before prophet, but he never took and kissed it.
4.Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith- Hadith 9.632 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The people of the Scripture used to read the Torah in Hebrew and explain it to the Muslims in Arabic. Then Allah’s Apostle said, “Do not believe the people of the Scripture, and do not disbelieve them, but say, ‘We believe in Allah and whatever has been revealed…’)  Quran 3.84)


Here not recognising what people of scriptures used to read completely, its like giving no importance to Torah in terms of absoluteness.
Though Muslims do recognise Torah as corrupted book, but certain parts which affirm with Quran are held to be true.

Corruption of Torah:

Quran 2:79 Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say: “This is from Allah” to traffic with it for a miserable price! Woe to them for what their hands do write and for the gain they make thereby.

Quran 5:13 But because of their breach of their Covenant We cursed them and made their hearts grow hard: they change the words from their (right) places and forget a good part of the Message that was sent them nor wilt thou cease to find them barring a few ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them and overlook (their misdeeds): for Allah loveth those who are kind.

Again, all of these points had been refuted in great details above.  The only new thing I need to mention here is that no Muslim today and neither the Noble Quran Says that GOD Almighty Scriptures had been corrupt.  What we claim is that today’s “Bible” is not the Original Holy and True Word of GOD Almighty. 

There are few points that need to be addressed in order to make this clear:

1- Today’s Bible, especially the New Testament, is a rewrite.   What you have today from “scriptures” is nothing but a man-made rewrite by Constantine and his council of Nessia.  Not only the Bible’s own theologians and historians claim and admit this as I clearly showed some of their quotes above, but the bible itself clearly supports it as well.  Let us look at the follow few examples about the bible’s rewrites and corruption by men:

From https://www.answering-christianity.com/sake3.htm:

So, who then are the authors of the books of the Bible? Obviously, the Church must know them very well since they are popularly believed to have received divine inspiration from God Himself. Right? Actually, they don’t. For example, we will note that every Gospel begins with the introduction

“According to….” such as “The Gospel according to Saint Matthew,” “The Gospel according to Saint Luke,” “The Gospel according to Saint Mark,” “The Gospel according to Saint John.”

The obvious conclusion for the average man on the street is that these people are known to be the authors of the books attributed to them. This, however, is not the case. Why? Because not one of the vaunted four thousand copies existent carries its author’s signature.

It has just been assumed that certain people were the authors. Recent discoveries, however, refute this belief. Even the internal evidence suggests that, for instance, Matthew did not write the Gospel attributed to him:

“…And as Jesus passed forth thence, HE (Jesus) saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and HE (Jesus) saith unto HIM (Matthew), follow ME (Jesus) and HE (Matthew) arose, and followed HIM (Jesus). (Matthew 9:9)”

Did “Matthew” write this about himself? Why then didn’t Matthew write for example: “he (Jesus) saw ME, and my name is Matthew. I was sitting at the receipt of custom…” etc.

Such evidence can be found in many places throughout the New Testament. Granted, it may be possible that an author sometimes may write in the third person, still, in light of the rest of the evidence that we shall see throughout this book, there is simply too much evidence against this hypothesis.

This observation is by no means limited to the New Testament. There is even similar evidence that at least parts of Deuteronomy were not written by their claimed author, prophet Moses. This can be seen in Deuteronomy 34:5-10 where we read

“So, Moses….DIED… and he (God Almighty) BURIED HIM (Moses)… He was 120 years old WHEN HE DIED… and there arose not a prophet SINCE in Israel like unto Moses…. (Deuteronomy 34:5-10)”

Did Moses write his own obituary? Similarly, Joshua too speaks in detail about his own death in Joshua 24:29-33.

“And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, DIED, … And they BURIED HIM … And Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that over lived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the Lord, that he had done for Israel …. (Joshua 24:29-33)”

Such evidence is part of the large cache which has driven the Biblical scholars to come to the current recognition that most of the books of the Bible were not written by their supposed authors. For example, the authors of the Revised Standard Version of the Bible by Collins honestly say that the author of “Kings” is “Unknown.” But if the author is unknown then why attribute it to God? How can it then be claimed to have been “inspired”?

Continuing, we read that the book of Isaiah is “Mainly credited to Isaiah. Parts may have been written by others.” Ecclesiastics: “Author. Doubtful, but commonly assigned to Solomon.” Ruth: “Author. Not definitely known, perhaps Samuel.” and on and on.

Let us have a slightly more detailed look at only one book of the New Testament, that of ‘Hebrews’:

The author of the Book of Hebrews is unknown. Martin Luther suggested that Apollos was the author…Tertullian said that Hebrews was a letter of Barnabas…Adolf Harnack and J. Rendel Harris speculated that it was written by Priscilla (or Prisca).

William Ramsey suggested that it was done by Philip. However, the traditional position is that the Apostle Paul wrote Hebrews…Eusebius believed that Paul wrote it, but Origen was not positive of Pauline authorship.”

From the introduction to the King James Bible, New revised and updated sixth edition, the Hebrew/Greek Key Study, Red Letter Edition and one book of the Old Testament:

“In tradition, [David] is credited with writing 73 of the Psalms; most scholars, however, consider this claim questionable.”

Encarta Encyclopedia, under “David”

Is this how we define “inspired by God”?

I asked a reverend of the local church in my neighborhood, on what gospel most often quoted and used, he quickly answered, the Gospel of St. John!

Let us examine the Contextual Problems of the Gospel of John – Highly Recommended!    Even though this is a Darwinist site, but it has some very good and important historical facts about the Bible’s corruption.  What makes it interesting is that many of their articles were written by former Christian missionaries.

2- It is also important to know that there are tons of books that were left out from the “Canons”.  I am certain that many of these books perhaps contained the Original and True Holy Word of GOD Almighty.  This is again addressed in great details at: https://www.answering-christianity.com/authors_gospels.htm.   Let us look at few sections from the link:

3-   The New Testament was written in the 3rd century by Constantine and his council by their own words:

As we clearly see above, the books and gospels of the bible were written by mysterious authors.  The New Testament of today was written in the third century by Constantine and his council.  That is why you read things such as:

…And as Jesus passed forth thence, HE (Jesus) saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and HE (Jesus) saith unto HIM (Matthew), follow ME (Jesus) and HE (Matthew) arose, and followed HIM (Jesus).  (Matthew 9:9)”

And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? (From the King James Version Bible, John 1:19)”

John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;  (From the King James Version Bible, John 1:26)”

For John was not yet cast into prison.  (From the King James Version Bible, John 3:24)”


It is quite possible and very highly probable that Constantine and his council selectively collected some letters from among 24,000 letters and wrote the 30 books and gospels of the New Testament with their OWN WORDS. Keep in mind that the 2nd century Christians mostly and widely believed that Jesus never got crucified. See the proof at:  www.answering-christianity.com/early_christians.htm.

The following links contain details about Constantine, his work in the Bible and history:


The point from this is that when you read “Jesus is the Son of God”, please keep in mind that it is quoted from a corrupted book.  The Old Testament makes numerous references about “son of God” to many people.  As we proved at: www.answering-christianity.com/son_translation.htm, the word “son of God” literally means “SERVANT OF GOD” in the original Hebrew.

The different “Canons” of the Bible!

Different and conflicting variations of “gospels” and “books” that are disagreed upon by the Churches today.

 4-   The Roman Catholic Encyclopedia admits that the Bible had been “altered”:

The subject of Mankind’s Corruption of the Bible has interested me greatly, and I have taken a closer look at this subject. Its seems it’s not only your site that brings this subject up, but a couple of Christian sites too.

For example, an article in the Catholic Encyclopedia that you mentioned in regard to the ‘Theophilus’ mentioned in Luke’s Gospel (from your Just Who Are The Real Authors Of The Bible? article) testifies to this fact (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/14530a.htm):


No book of ancient times has come down to us exactly as it left the hands of its author– all have been in some way altered. The material conditions under which a book was spread before the invention of printing (1440), the little care of the copyists, correctors, and glossators for the text, so different from the desire of accuracy exhibited to-day, explain sufficiently the divergences we find between various manuscripts of the same work.

To these causes may be added, in regard to the Scriptures, exegetical difficulties and dogmatical controversies. To exempt the sacred writings from ordinary conditions a very special providence would have been necessary, and it has not been the will of God to exercise this providence.”

Let us just go through that again – “No book of ancient times has come down to us exactly as it left the hands of its author–all have been in some way altered.”  All have been in some way altered! In view of this blatant admission, how can anyone expect me, or any Muslim, to follow an impure book?

When you compare this to the great lengths taken to preserve the original Qur’an, there’s no contest!

Luke 1:3

Therefore, since I myself have carefully investigated everything from the beginning, it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,

The following is from the Catholic Encyclopedia:



If Theophilus existed in either the 2nd or the 4th centuries, then how could the writer of this gospel be the same Luke who is supposed to be with Jesus in the 1st century.

Maybe he lived to about 200 years.
