INTRODUCTION

That  Shiahs  are  kuffaar,  is  a  well-established  fact.  Besides  their many  beliefs  and  practices  of  clear-cut  kufr,  their  most conspicuous  belief  of  kufr  which  expels  them  from  the  fold  of Islam  is  their  denial  of  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Shareef. Despite  present-day  Shiahs  attempting  to  conceal  this  vile  belief, their  religious  books  of  their  religious  authorities  are  replete  with the denial of the Qur‚Äôaan which we have with us today.

To¬† further¬† substantiate¬† their¬† belief¬† of¬† the¬† ‚Äėfalsehood‚Äô¬† and ‚Äėunauthenticity‚Äô¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† Majeed,¬† Shiahs¬† are¬† now labouring,¬† albeit¬† abortively,¬† to¬† show¬† that¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† is¬† false¬† even according¬† to Muslims. They¬† are¬† circulating¬† spurious articles citing from¬† Muslim¬† sources¬† to¬† misleadingly¬† ‚Äėconfirm‚Äô¬† that¬† the¬† present Qur‚Äôaan¬† Majeed¬† has¬† been¬† subjected¬† to¬† wholesale¬† deletion¬† and interpolation¬† effected¬† primarily¬† by¬† the¬†¬†Khulafa-e-Raashideen.¬†

It¬† is the¬† Shiah¬† belief¬† that¬† the¬† vast¬† majority,¬† in¬† fact¬† 99%¬† of¬† the Sahaabah¬† had¬† reneged¬† from¬† Islam¬† and¬† had¬† become¬† ‚Äėmurtad‚Äô¬† after the¬† demise¬† of¬† Rasulullah¬† (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam),¬† thus rejecting¬† Allah‚Äôs¬† declaration¬† in¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† stated¬† in¬†verse¬†18¬† of¬†¬†Surah Al-Fath:

‚ÄúVerily,  Allah  was well  pleased  with the Mu‚Äômineen when they pledged allegiance  to you (O  Muhammad!)  under  the tree.  Thus He  was aware  what was in their hearts  (of Imaan).  Then He  sent on them tranquillity and granted them an impending victory.‚ÄĚ

Who  were  these  people  ‚Äúunder  the  tree‚ÄĚ  who  had  pledged allegiance  to  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)?  Who  were they  with  whom  Allah  Ta‚Äôala  was  ‚Äúwell  pleased‚ÄĚ?  Who  were  the people  in  whose  hearts  Allah  Ta‚Äôala  knew  was  Imaan? They were the Sahaabah of Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

These  are  the  Sahaabah  about  whom  Allah  Ta‚Äôala  speaks glowingly.  In Verse  29 of  Surah  Al-Fatah,  lauding  accolades  and glowing  praises on the Sahaabah,  Allah  Ta‚Äôala says:

‚ÄúMuhammad is  the Rasool  of  Allah.  And, those with him are  most stern against the  kuffaar and most merciful among  themselves. You will  see  them  making  Ruku‚Äô and Sajdah  (i.e. performing Salaat)  seeking the  munificence  of  Allah  and  (His) Pleasure. On their faces is  the impression of Salaat. ‚Ķ‚ÄĚ

Who  were  these  noble  souls  with  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  whom  Allah  Ta‚Äôala  elevates  to  the  lofty  pedestal  stated in  the Qur‚Äôaan?  They  were  the  very  Sahaabah  whom  the  Shiah  kuffaar brand as ‚Äėmurtaddeen‚Äô.

All  kuffaar  of  every  hue  deny  the  divinity  and  authenticity  of the  Qur’aan.  It  is  thus  not  surprising  for  the  Shiah  kuffaar  to likewise  deny  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur’aan.  If  it  was  not  for  the confusion  which  Shiah  propaganda  creates  among  ignorant  and unwary  Muslims,  there  would  have  been  no  need  to  respond  and refute  the  satanic  arguments  of  these  kuffaar. 

The¬† confusion¬† stems from¬† a¬† misconception¬† in¬† the¬† minds¬† of¬† ignorant¬† and¬† unwary Muslims.¬† Many¬† Muslims¬† have¬† been¬† misled¬† to¬† understand¬† that Shiahs¬† are¬† ‚ÄėMuslims‚Äô¬† or¬† a¬† sect¬† of¬† Islam.¬† However,¬† this¬† idea¬† is fallacious.

There  are  many  sects  in  Islam.  But  Shi’ism  is  not  a  sect  of Islam.  It  is  another  kufr  religion  entirely  apart  and  antagonistic  of Islam,  but  parading  itself  as  followers  of  Islam.  All  deviant  sects of  Islam  unanimously  accept  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur’aan. Their  deviation  is  the  effect  of  their  misinterpretation  of  the Qur’aan. 

They  do  not  reject  the  Qur’aan  Majeed.  In  contrast Shiahs  denounce,  reject  and  deny  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur’aan. This belief  alone  sets them  apart  from  the  deviant sects  into  which the  Ummah  has  become  splintered.  Understanding  this  fact  is  of fundamental importance: Shiahs are  kuffaar.

The  objective  of  this  discussion  is  not  to  convince  Shiahs  of their  error  of  kufr.  Just  as  Christians,  Jews,  Hindus  and  all  other kuffaar  cannot  be  convinced  by  rational  argument  of  their  error  of kufr,  so  too  it  is  not  possible  to  convince  Shiah  kuffaar.  In  fact,  of all  brands  of  kufr,  Shiah  kufr  is  the  worst. 

There  is  no  other kuffaar  religion  which  disgorges  so  much  venom  against  the Sahaabah,  especially  against  the  first  three  Khulafa-e-Raashideen and  Hadhrat  Aishah  (radhiyallahu  anha).  Kuffaar  can  be  guided only  by  Allah  Ta’ala.  In this regard, the  Qur’aan  Majeed states:

‚ÄúVerily  you  (O Muhammad!)  cannot guide  (to Islam)  those whom you love. But,  Allah  guides whomever  He  wills.  And, He  knows best who are  to be guided.‚ÄĚ

The  objective  of  this  discourse  is  for  the  enlightenment  of ignorant  and  unwary  Muslims  who  may  have  been  cast  into  doubt and confusion by the flotsam propaganda of the Shiah kuffaar.

ALLAH AZZA  WA JAL ‚Äď THE PROTECTOR OF THE QUR‚ÄôAAN

Declaring  with  emphasis  the  divine  guardianship  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan Majeed, Allah  Ta‚Äôala states in the  Qur‚Äôaan:

‚ÄúVerily,  We  have  revealed the  Thikr (the  Qur‚Äôaan), and  verily We are its Protectors.‚ÄĚ (Al-Hijr,  15)

In  the  light  of  this  declaration  of  Allah  Ta‚Äôala,  the  entire  argument is  clinched. There  is  really  no  need  to  traverse  beyond  this  Divine Assurance.  Allah  Ta‚Äôala  did not  promise to protect the  authenticity of  any  of  the  previous  Scriptures.  But,  this  Promise  is  for  the Qur‚Äôaan Shareef.

Since  Allah  Ta’ala  has  promised  to  guard  the  authenticity  of  the Qur’aan  Majeed,  it  is  absolutely  blasphemous  and  kufr  of  the worst  order  to  accept  that  the  Qur’aan  was  destroyed  by  the Sahaabah,  and  intensively  mutilated  by  mass  deletion  of  revealed texts  and  even  whole  Surahs  immediately  after  the  demise  of Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam). 

An¬† imperative¬† corollary of¬† the¬† belief¬† of¬† the¬† Shiah¬†¬†kuffaar¬† is¬† that¬† Allah¬† Ta‚Äôala¬† had¬† violated His Promise of¬† safeguarding¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan, or¬† that¬† He¬† was impotent in this respect ‚ÄstNauthubillaah min thaalik!=We seek refuge in Allah from that.

It is  the  odious  and  copro-belief  of  the  Shiah  kuffaar  that Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  had  defectively discharged  his  mission  of  Nubuwwat  since  he  had  not  left  reliable and  honest  followers  to  sustain  and  propagate  the  pristine  pure Islam  which  Allah  Ta’ala  had  revealed,  and  which  Allah  Ta’ala confirms in the following Qur’aanic :

‚ÄúThis Day  have  I  perfected for you your Deen, and completed for you My  Favour, and have  chosen  for you Islam as  your Deen.‚ÄĚ (Al-Maaidah, 3)

The¬† logical¬† conclusion of¬† denial of the¬† authenticity¬†of the¬† Qur‚Äôaan is¬† ‚Äst¬†Nauthubillah!¬† ‚Äst the¬† attribution¬† of¬† falsehood¬† to¬† Allah¬† Ta‚Äôala, because¬† there¬† can¬† be¬† no¬† perfection¬† of¬† Islam¬† minus¬† the¬† authentic Qur‚Äôaan.¬†

Thus  the  Shiah  kuffaar  accuse  Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal  of falsehood,  and  by  implication,  the  appointment  of  a  Messenger who  was  inadequate  and  incapable  of  discharging  his  mission  of Nubuwwat.  Declaring  the  fulfilment  of  his  Nubuwwat,  Rasulullah (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  proclaimed  to  124,000  Sahaabah  on the  Plains  of  Arafaat  on  the  occasion  of  Hajjatul  Wida  (The Farewell Hajj):


‚ÄúBehold! Have I delivered (Allah‚Äôs Deen to you)?‚ÄĚ

In  unison,  the  huge  concourse  of  the  Sahaabah  responded:  ‚ÄúYes!‚ÄĚ (i.e.  You  have  delivered  the  Message).  Rasulullah  (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), then said: ‚ÄúO Allah! Be Witness!‚ÄĚ

Compounding  the  attribution  of  the  imperfection  of  Nubuwwat, the  Shiah  kuffaar  claim  that  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  had  conveyed  genuine  Islam  to  only  Hadhrat  Ali (radhiyallahu  anhu)  to  whom  he  had  handed  the  true  Qur’aan.

This¬† ‚Äėoriginal‚Äô¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† according¬† to¬† the¬† copro-belief¬† of¬† the¬† Shiah¬†kuffaar¬† is¬† in¬† the¬† possession¬† of¬† their¬†¬†Qaa-im¬†¬†(Mahdi)¬† who¬† had taken¬† to¬† concealment¬† in¬† a¬† cave¬† at¬† the¬† age¬† of¬† 8¬† years.¬† When¬† he appears,¬† he¬† will¬† come¬† with¬† the¬† ‚Äėoriginal‚Äô¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† which¬† was revealed¬† to¬† Rasulullah¬† (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam),¬† and¬† which was lost to the Sahaabah,¬† i.e. to the entire¬† first rung¬† of the¬†¬†Ummah¬†immediately¬† upon¬† the¬† demise¬† of¬† Nabi-e-Kareem¬† (sallallahu¬† alayhi wasallam).¬†

Furthermore,¬† not¬† a¬† single¬† one¬† of¬† the¬† Shiah¬† ‚Äėma‚Äôsoom‚Äô (sinless)¬†¬†imams¬† to¬† whom¬† allegedly¬† Jibraeel¬† (alayhis¬† salaam) delivers¬†¬†Wahi,¬† had¬† the¬† guts¬† or¬† the¬† courage¬† to¬† proclaim¬† the¬† truth and¬† to¬† present¬† the¬† true¬† Shiah¬† ‚Äėqur‚Äôaan‚Äô.¬† Yet¬† these¬† ‚Äėimaams‚Äô¬† are supposed to be¬† higher in¬† status than even¬† Jibraeel¬† (alayhis salaam) and¬† all¬† the¬† Ambiya.¬† This¬† is¬† Shi‚Äôi¬†¬†kufr¬† which¬† is¬† presented¬† as ‚Äėislam‚Äô.

The  villainy  and  dishonesty  of  the  Shiah  kuffaar  are  glaringly salient  features  of  their  religion.  While  they  currently  recite  the Qur’aan  in  which  Muslims  believe,  it  is  their  belief  that  the Qur’aan  will  be  recited  correctly  only  when  Imaam  Mahdi appears. 

This  is  clearly  stated  in  their  official  books  of  theology. In  order  to  deceive  Muslims  by  conveying  the  impression  that they  too  are  Muslims,  they  are  instructed  by  their  clerics  to  recite the  Qur’aan  of  the  Muslims  although  they  are  unable  to  recite correctly. 

There  has  never  been  a  Haafiz  of  the  Qur’aan  among the  Shiahs.  They  ostensibly  convey  that  they  accept  our  Qur’aan. This  they  do  on  the  basis  of  their  belief  of  holy  hypocrisy  known as  Taqiyah  which  requires  concealment  of  their  true  beliefs.  Such falsehood  is  a  highly  meritorious  act  in  terms  of  the  Shiah religion.

Thus,  what  they  are  today  reciting,  is  not  the  Qur‚Äôaan  according to  their  undeniable  belief.  The  evil  of  these  kuffaar  is  therefore quite manifest.

Their  satanic  incongruency  is  starkly  displayed  by  the  fact  that  it is  mentioned  in  all  the  religious  books  of  the  Shiah  kuffaar  that  all the  Ahl-e-Bayt  recited  this  very  same  Qur‚Äôaan  which  Muslims believe  in,  and  they  would  utilize  this  very  Qur‚Äôaan  as  proof  for the  deduction  of  laws  and  interpretation.  The  tafseer  which  they attribute  to  Imaam  Hasan  Askari  is  in  fact  the  tafseer  of  this very same Qur‚Äôaan of the Muslims, word for word. Allah Ta‚Äôala states in the Qur‚Äôaan Majeed:

‚ÄúVerily, it  is Our responsibility  to compile  it  (the  Qur‚Äôaan)  and to recite it.‚ÄĚ  [Al-Qiyaamah,  17]

Shiahs  do  accept  that  this  is  an  authentic  Qur’aan.  Despite their  acceptance  of  the  fact  that  Allah  Ta’ala  has  undertaken  the responsibility  of  compiling  the  Qur’aan,  they  maintain  that  the Qur’aan  is  greatly  deficient,  two  thirds  of  it  having  been  deleted by  the  Sahaabah.  

Kufr  deranges  intellectual  equilibrium,  hence these  Shiah  Kuffaar  fail  to  understand  that  they  are  attributing falsehood  to  even  Allah  Ta’ala.  In  denying  the  authenticity  of  the Qur’aan  they  are  implying  that  Allah  Ta’ala  had  failed  to  preserve and protect the Qur’aan as He promises in the Qur’aan.

ALLAH AZZA  WA JAL ‚Äď THE LEGISLATOR

Every  Muslim,  the  learned  and  the  ignorant,  is  aware  and  fully understands  that  the  one  and  only  Legislator  of  Islamic  Law  is Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal.  The  entire  edifice  of  the  Shariah  is  structured on  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Shareef.  Minus  the  Qur‚Äôaan,  there  is  no  Shariah, and  minus  the  Hadith  there  is  no  Qur‚Äôaan,  and  minus  these  two primary  and fundamental  sources of the  Deen, there  is no  Islam.

Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal  is  not  under  obligation  of  anyone,  and  the Revelation  of  the  Qur’aan  and  all  Aayaat  which  no  longer  form part  of  the  Qur’aan  in  our  possession  are  by  the  Will  of  Allah Ta’ala.  He  reveals  as  He  deems  appropriate,  and  He  abrogates  as He  deems  fit. 

No  one  has  authority  over  Allah’s  decrees.  Only brains  convoluted  by  kufr  such  as  the  brains  of  the  Shiah  kuffaar criticize  and  vilify  Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal  for  exercising  His Prerogative  Will  and  Command.  Declaring  His  methodology pertaining  to  the  revelation  of  Aayaat,  Allah  Ta’ala  states  in  the Qur’aan Hakeem:

‚ÄúWhatever¬† We¬† abrogate¬† of¬† any¬†or¬† cause¬† it¬† to¬† be¬† forgotten,¬† We bring¬† forth¬† (reveal)¬† what¬† is¬† better¬† than¬† it¬† or¬† similar¬† to¬† it.¬† What! Do¬† you¬† not¬† know¬† that¬† verily¬† Allah¬† has¬† power¬† over¬† all¬† things? What!¬† Do¬† you¬† not¬† know¬† that¬† unto¬† Him¬† belongs¬† the¬† dominion¬† of the heavens and earth.‚ÄĚ (Al-Baqarah,¬† 106 and 107)


Now  when  Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal  Himself  has  declared  the  excision of  Aayaat  and  Ahkaam  (Laws)  which were  at one  stage  part of  the Wahi  to  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam),  then  only  those with  flagitious  hearts,  venal  objectives  and  brains  contaminated by  stercoral matter,  will  attribute  falsehood to  the  Qur’aan  Majeed on account of  Aayaat  excised by  order of  Allah Azza  Wa  Jal.  And, the  only  miscreants  of  kufr  in  the  annals  of  Islam  who  had proclaimed  and  still  proclaim  the  falsehood  of  the  Qur’aan Hakeem  are  the Shiah kuffaar.

It  are  these  abrogated  Verses  which  are  mentioned  in  the  kutub  of Islam,  which  the  Shiah  kuffaar  cite  deviously  to  convey  the impression  that  even  according  to  Muslims  the  present  Qur‚Äôaan  is unauthentic  and  was  severely  mutilated  by  the  Sahaabah.  The mention  of  the  abrogated  Aayaat  are  for  the  purposes  of explaining  the  Qur‚Äôaanic aayat  which  states  the  fact  of  Naskh (Abrogation).

They  conduct  themselves  like  the  munaafiqeen  and  the mushrikeen who retorted  with ridicule when Allah  Ta’ala  repealed a  Law  or  abrogated  an Aayat. 

Thus,  the  Qur’aan  Majeed  says  about  the ilk of such kuffaar:

‚ÄúWhen  We  substitute an aayat  with another  ‚Äď  and  Allah  knows  best what He  reveals  ‚Äď  they  (the  munaafiqeen and their Shiah ilk)  say: ‚ÄėYou are a fraud. But, they are a fraud, indeed most of them know not.‚ÄĚ (An-Nahl,  101)

‚ÄúSay  (O Muhammad!): ‚ÄėRuhul Qudus (Jibraeel)  has revealed it from your Rabb with the  Truth to establish firmly  the  people of Imaan, and as a guidance  and glad tidings for the  Mu‚Äômineen.‚ÄĚ (An-Nahl,  102)

Numerous  Aayaat  revealed  by  Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal were  abrogated. This  is  not  a  secret.  The  kutub  of  Hadith  of  Muslims conspicuously  mention  this  fact.  Shiahs have latched  on  to  these narrations  which  mention  abrogations  ‚Äď  and  these  are  numerous  ‚Äď to  accuse  the  Sahaabah  of  having  excised  ‚Äėtwo  thirds‚Äô  of  the Qur‚Äôaan  Majeed.  In  this  regard,  these  vile  enemies  of  Rasulullah (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  and  the  Sahaabah,  accusing  the Sahaabah, say:

‚ÄúHas¬† most¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôan¬† been¬† lost?¬† Suyuti¬† also¬† records¬† the following¬† words¬† of¬† Abdullah¬† bin¬† Umar:¬† ‚ÄėVerily¬† among¬† you¬† people one¬† would¬† say¬† that¬† he¬† has¬† found¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôan¬† whilst¬† he¬† is¬† unaware of¬† what¬† the¬† total¬† quantity¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôan¬† was,¬† because¬† most¬† of¬† the Qur‚Äôan¬† has¬† been¬† lost¬† rather¬† one¬† should¬† say¬† that¬† verily¬† he¬† has found¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôan¬† that¬† has¬† appeared.‚Ä̬†¬†(Tafseer¬† Durre¬† Manthur, Vol.1, page 104)

This  narration  and  similar  others  have  been  enumerated  by Allaamah  Suyuti  in  the  tafseer  of  the Qur’aan  in  which  Allah  Ta’ala  states the  Naskh  (abrogation)  of  Qur’aanic  verses.  These  narrations have  not  been  presented  by  Allaamah  Suyuti  to  substantiate  the Shiah  kuffaar  falsehood  of  tahreef  (falsification,  interpolation, excision,  etc.)  in  the  Qur’aan  Majeed. 

There  is  no  sinister dimension  to  the  issue  of  Abrogation.  These  narrations  are  cited by  Allaamah  Suyuti  and  all  other  Mufassireen  as  examples  of abrogated  verses  and  section  of  Wahi.  There  is  not  a  single  one  of the  Mufassireen  or  the  Sahaabah  or  any  other  Authority  of  Islam who  have  cited  these  narrations  to  show  tahreef  in  the  Qur’aan Majeed. 

Everyone  mentioned  these  narrations  to  substantiate Allah’s declaration:

‚ÄúWhatever  We  abrogate  of any  or cause  it  to be forgotten,  We replace  it  with (another) better than  it  or similar  to it.‚ÄĚ (Al-Baqarah,  106)

All  these  Mufassireen  believed  in  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan Majeed.  These  narrations  only  explain  this  Qur‚Äôaanic Aayat. All  the narrations  in  this  regard  are  examples  of  Mansookh  (Abrogated) Aayaat  mentioned by  Allah Azza  Wa  Jal in this  (106 of  Baqarah). Not  a  single  Authority  of  Islam  has  ever  even  hinted  on  the  basis of these narrations that any part of the Qur‚Äôaan Majeed is missing.

The  idea  of  any  portion  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan  missing  or  deleted  will  be in  negation  of  Allah‚Äôs  categorical  promise  to  protect  the  purity  of the  Qur‚Äôaan  Shareef.  Since  Shiahs  are  kuffaar,  they  have  no hesitation  in  fabricating  a  belief  which  results  in  the  attribution  of falsehood to Allah Azza Wa Jal.

Furthermore,  the  Shiah  kaafir  moron  has  mis-translated  the  term, thahaba.  He  erroneously  translates:  ‚Äú‚Ķ.most  of  the  Qur‚Äôan  has been  lost.‚ÄĚ  The  correct  translation  of  the  word  thahaba  in  the context  of  the  discussion  is:  not  extant  or  is  gone.  Ibn  Umar‚Äôs (radhiyallahu anhu) statement  refers  to  the  extant  Qur‚Äôaan  and  the  Abrogated  portions. The verses which were non-extant were the abrogated Aayaat.

‚ÄúMOST OF THE QUR‚ÄôAAN LOST‚ÄĚ?

Another  serious  blunder  by  the  stupid  Shiah  is  the  translation  of the  word,  katheer.  He  translates  it:  ‚Äú..most  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan‚ÄĚ.  This word  does  not  mean  most.  It  means  much.  Thus,  Abdullah  Ibn Umar  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  said  that  much  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan  is  no longer  extant.  Therefore,  no  one  should  claim  that  he  has encompassed  the  whole  of  the  revealed  Qur‚Äôaan,  the  extant  and the non-extant.

Abrogation  is  confirmed  by  the  Qur’aan  itself.  It  is  Allah’s prerogative  right  to  reveal  and  abrogate  Wahi  as  He  deems  fit.  No one  among  the  Muslims  besides  the  Shiah  kuffaar,  has  ever refuted  the  abrogation  of  numerous  Qur’aanic  verses.  There  is  no mystery  in  this  fact.  Muslims  do  not  conceal  it.  There  is  no doctrine  of  Taqiyah  (holy  hypocrisy)  in  Islam.  All  the  narrations pertaining  to  the  cancelled  Qur’aanic  verses  are  in  the  public domain. 

But  the  Shiah  moron  who  anonymously  circulated  his pamphlet,  presented  these  narrations  as  if  it  is  something  new  to Muslims.  With  these  narrations,  the  Shiah  kuffaar  are  out  to confuse ignorant Muslims.

The¬† claim¬† that¬† ‚Äúmost¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† was¬† lost‚Ä̬† is¬† a¬† preposterous slander¬† by¬† the¬† Shiah¬† kuffaar.¬† At¬† the¬† time¬† of¬† Rasulullah‚Äôs¬† demise there¬† were¬† innumerable¬†¬†Huffaaz¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan-e-Kareem.¬† This fact¬† is¬† testified¬† by¬† the¬†¬†shahaadat¬† (martyrdom)¬† of¬† 70¬†¬†Huffaaz¬† in¬† the Battle¬† of¬† Yamaamah.¬†

It  was  the  Martyrdom  of  so  many  Huffaaz which  had  finally  induced  Hadhrat  Abu  Bakr  (radhiyallahu  anhu) to  order  the  compilation  of  the  Qur’aan  Majeed  in  Book  form  at the insistence of Hadhrat Hudhaifah (radhiyallahu anhu).

The  numerous  Huffaaz  would  recite  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Majeed  during Rasulullah‚Äôs  lifetime  and  Jibraeel  (alayhis  salaam)  would  listen annually  during  Ramadhaan,  to  Rasulullah‚Äôs  recitation  of  the entire  Qur‚Äôaan  Majeed.  During  the  last  Ramadhaan  of Rasulullah‚Äôs  life,  Hadhrat Jibraeel  (alayhis  salaam)  listened  to  two khatams made by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

In  addition  to  the  innumerable  Huffaaz  present,  many  Sahaabah had  the  entire  Qur’aan  Majeed  in  written  form.  Now  when  the Ummah  has  preserved  the  Compilation  of  Hadhrat  Uthmaan (radhiyallahu  anhu)  for  fourteen  centuries  intact  without  a  word being  interpolated  or  missed,  why  could  the  numerous  Sahaabah not  preserve  intact  the  Qur’aan  revealed  to  Rasulullah  (sallallahu alayhi  wasallam)  with  only  a  small  gap  between  their  time  and  the time  of  Rasulullah’s  demise? 

It  is  indeed  illogic  and  stupid  to  aver that  the  Ummah  had  achieved  the  feat  of  preservation  despite being  fourteen  centuries  apart  from  the  era  of  Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam),  but  the  Sahaabah  with  their wonderful  memories  were  unable  to  preserve  the  Qur’aan  which they  had  acquired  directly  from  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam).

If  anything  from  the  Qur‚Äôaan  had  been  discarded,  a  cacophony  of objections  would  have  been  raised  in  the  ranks  of  the  Sahaabah. There  would  never  have  been  the  Ijma‚Äô  which  had  been established  among  the  Sahaabah  on  the  authenticity  of  the Qur‚Äôaan Majeed.

Another  fact  of  significance  is  that  many  Sahaabah  were  still aware  of  numerous  Mansookh  (Abrogated)  Aayaat.  But,  they  did not  proffer  inclusion  of  such  verses  in  the  Compilation  of  the Qur’aan  Shareef.  Just  one  example  is  the    pertaining  to  Rajm (stoning  the  adulterers).  Hadhrat  Umar  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  who was  instrumental  in  compiling  the  Qur’aan  Majeed,  did  not include  this  verse  despite  the  fact  that  he  was  aware  of  it,  and  that he  stated  unequivocally  that  the  hukm  (law)  of  Rajm  was  valid and  not  abrogated.  Now  what  had  induced  him  to  exclude  this verse  from  the  Compilation  while  retaining  the  practical  law? 

Since  he  was  aware  that  this    was  Mansookhut  Tilaawat,  i.e. Allah  Ta’ala  had  cancelled  it  being  a  part  of  the  Qur’aan  for Tilaawat,  he  did  not  request  its  inclusion  in  the  Compilation.  If this  had  been  the  subject  of  Tilaawat,  then  it  is  inconceivable  that he  would  have  excluded  it,  and  it  is  likewise  inconceivable  that not  a  single  Sahaabi  would  not  have  objected  to  its  exclusion  if  it had not been abrogated.

Naskh  was  the  reason  for  much  of  the  revealed  Wahi  not  being included  in  the  Qur’aan  Majeed  despite  it  having  formed  part  of  it earlier.  The  incidence  of  Naskh  was  restricted  to  the  era  of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). For  the  protection  of  the  Qur’aan  Majeed,  Allah  Ta’ala  had created  the  Institution  of  the  Huffaaz. 

This¬† Institution¬† was¬† not¬† a later¬† innovation.¬† Its¬† initiation¬† was¬† during¬† the¬† very¬† lifetime¬† of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).¬† The¬† practical implementation¬† of¬† the¬†Aayat:¬† ‚ÄúVerily,¬† We¬† have¬† revealed¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan, and¬† verily,¬† We¬† are¬† its¬† Protectors.‚ÄĚ,¬† is¬† by¬† means¬† of¬† the¬† Institution of the¬†Huffaaz.

The  argument  of  the  Shiah  kuffaar  regarding  tahreef  in  the Qur‚Äôaan  is  manifestly  absurd  in  the  light  of  the  categorical assurance  of  guarding  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan  given  by Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal  Himself.  He  reveals  as  He  pleases,  and  He effaces  of  His  Revelation  as  He  wills.  Thus,  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Majeed states:  ‚ÄúAllah  effaces  whatever  He  wills  and  He  establishes (retains)  whatever  He  wills  (of  His  laws  and  Aayaat).‚ÄĚ  No  one has the  right  to question  any  of  the Prerogatives  of Allah  Azza  Wa Jal.

The  numerous  narrations  pertaining  to  Abrogation  to  be  found  in the  Hadith  Kutub  of  Muslims  is  indicative  of  the  awareness  of  the Sahaabah  of  this  incidence.  The  senior  Sahaabah  would  prevent lecturing  by  those  who  were  not  qualified  in  Naasikh  and Mansookh. 

These¬† narrations¬† are¬† recorded¬† in¬† the¬†¬†Kutub¬† of¬† Islam not¬† to¬† show¬† that¬† ‚Äėmost¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† has¬† been¬† lost‚Äô¬† as¬† the¬† Shiah¬†kuffaar¬† slanderously¬† claim.¬† The¬† purpose¬† is¬† to¬† elucidate¬† the Qur‚Äôaanic verses which categorically state Allah‚Äôs law of¬†Naskh.

SURAH AHZAAB AND ABROGATION

The¬† Shiah¬† moron¬† alleges¬† that¬† since¬† the¬† greater¬† part¬† of¬†¬†Surah Ahzaab¬† was¬†¬†‚Äėlost‚Äô,¬† Hadhrat¬† Uthmaan¬† (radhiyallahu¬† anhu) managed¬† to¬†¬†‚Äėlocate‚Äô¬† only¬† the¬† number¬† of¬† verses¬† which¬† are presently¬† in¬† this¬†¬†Surah.¬† This¬† is¬† another¬† blasphemous¬† and slanderous¬† accusation.¬†

Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  did not  execute  the  original  compilation  of  the  Qur’aan  Majeed.  This noble  feat  was  accomplished  by  the  Committee  headed  by Hadhrat  Zaid  Bin  Thaabit  (radhiyallahu  anhu),  and  instituted  by Hadhrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu anhu), the first Khalifah.

Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  had  ordered  the arrangement  of  the  proper  sequence  of  the  Surahs  as  was instructed  by  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam).  There  was no  further  addition  to  nor  deletion  from  the  Compilation accomplished  under  the  orders  of  the  first  Khalifah.  Thus  the claim  that  Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  ‚Äúonly  succeeded in  locating  the  present  number  of  verses‚ÄĚ  is  bunkum  and  utterly baseless.

Sight  should  not  be  lost  of  the  numerous  Huffaaz  present  among the  Sahaabah.  These  Huffaaz  had  memorized  the  entire  Qur‚Äôaan Shareef,  minus  the  Mansookh  verses  which  Allah  Ta‚Äôala  had effaced  from  their  memories.  This  was  achieved  during  the  very lifetime  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam).  The  Sahaabah did  not  become  Huffaaz  from  the  physically  compiled  copy prepared  during  the  Khilaafat  of  Hadhrat  Abu  Bakr  (radhiyallahu anhu).

With¬† so¬† many¬†¬†Huffaaz¬† around¬† him,¬† what¬† was¬† the¬† difficulty¬† in¬†‚Äėlocating‚Äô¬†¬†the¬† entire¬†¬†Surah¬† Ahzaab¬† if¬† there¬† had¬† to¬† be¬† done¬† any search.¬† Even¬† today,¬† if¬† all¬† the¬† copies¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† Majeed¬† are destroyed,¬† there¬† will¬† be¬† innumerable¬†¬†Huffaaz¬† to¬† swiftly¬† prepare authentic¬†copies.¬†

It  is  indeed  preposterous  to  proffer  the absolutely  stupid  proposition  of  the  greater  part  of  Surah  Ahzaab found  to  be  missing  by  Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu  anhu).  He had  the  very  first  compiled  version  by  him,  and  he  had  the assistance  of  innumerable  Huffaaz,  and  above  all,  he  himself  was an accomplished Haafiz of the Qur’aan.

Why¬† do¬† the¬† Shiahs¬† delete¬† Hadhrat¬† Ali¬† (radhiyallahu¬† anhu)¬† from this¬† equation.¬† When¬† all¬† the¬† supposed¬† deletion¬† was¬† being¬† effected by¬† the¬† Sahaabah,¬† where¬† was¬† Hadhrat¬† Ali¬† (radhiyallahu¬† anhu)?¬† He was¬† an¬† accomplished¬†¬†Haafiz¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan.¬† Did¬† he¬† not¬† ‚Äst could he¬† not¬† raise¬† his¬† voice¬† in¬† protest¬† at¬† the¬† alleged¬† blasphemy¬† of mutilating¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† being¬† perpetrated?¬†

Was it  expected  of  such a  senior  Sahaabi  as  Hadhrat  Ali  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  whom  the Shiahs  proclaim  their  first  infallible  Imaam  to  whom  Jibraeel (alayhis  salaam)  would  bring  Wahi,  to  have  maintained  silence and become  a  silent observer of  the destruction of  Islam?

The¬† truth¬† is¬† that¬† this¬† is¬† precisely¬† what¬† the¬†¬†kuffaar¬† Shiah¬† clergy¬† din into¬† the¬† ears¬† of¬† their¬† ignorant¬† masses.¬† It¬† is¬† quite¬† clear¬† that¬† there were¬† two¬† Ali‚Äôs.¬† One¬† a¬† Shiah¬† Ali,¬† and¬† the¬† other¬† the¬† Ali¬† of¬† Islam¬† ‚Äď the¬† son-in-law¬† of¬† Rasulullah¬† (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam),¬† the Fourth¬† of¬† the¬† Khulafa-e-Raashideen, the brave lion of Allah¬† whom¬† the¬† entire¬†¬†Ummah¬†reveres.

The¬† ‚ÄėAli‚Äô¬† of the¬† Shiahs was some¬† cowardly¬† character¬† who condoned¬† silently¬† the¬† supposed¬† destruction¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† and Islam by¬† the Sahaabah as¬† the¬†kuffaar¬†Shiahs believe.

If  there  had  been  the  slightest  deletion  from  the  Qur’aan, innumerable  voices  of  protest  from  the  Sahaabah  would  have been  heard.  How  is  it  ever  conceivable  for  the  prevalence  of  such a  deafening  silence  by  such  a  large  body  of  Sahaabah  among whom  were  innumerable  Huffaaz,  when  the  alleged  massacre  of the  Qur’aan  was  being  perpetrated  by  means  of  wholesale deletions? 

Not  a  single  Sahaabi,  not  even  the  noble  and  valiant Hadhrat  Ali  (radhiyallahu  anhu),  raised  even  a  murmur  of discontent.  Only  Shiah  kuffaar  are  capable  of  such  obnoxious fabrications.

The¬† alleged¬† ‚Äėdeletion‚Äô¬† by¬† Hadhrat¬† Uthmaan¬† (radhiyallahu¬† anhu)¬† is a¬† notorious¬† Shi‚Äôi¬† fabrication.¬† Whilst¬† they¬† accuse¬† him¬† of¬† deliberate wholesale¬† deletion,¬† they¬† contradict¬† themselves¬† by¬† producing¬† a text¬† from¬†¬†Tafseer¬† Durre¬† Manthur¬†¬†which¬† they¬† erroneously translate:¬† ‚Äú‚Ķbut¬† when¬† Uthman¬† collected¬† the¬† Mushaf,¬† he¬† only succeeded¬† in¬† locating¬† the¬† present¬† number¬† of¬† verses¬† (i.e.¬† in¬† Sural Al-Ahzaab).‚Ä̬†

In  other  words,  this  implies  that  it  was  not  Hadhrat Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  who  had  committed  the  alleged deletion  from  Surah  Ahzaab.  He  only  was  allegedly  unable  to locate  the  remainder,  i.e.  the  greater  part,  of  Surah  Ahzaab.  But this  is  preposterously  absurd. 

Why  would  it  not  have  been possible to locate the  rest  of the  Surah when:

(a) He  was  in  possession  of  the  original  copy  of  the Qur‚Äôaan  compiled  during  the  Khilaafat  of  Hadhrat  Abu Bakr  (radhiyallahu anhu)

(b) There  were  innumerable  Huffaaz  of  the  highest calibre  among  the Sahaabah still living?

(c) He, himself was  an expert Haafiz.

The  meaning  of  the  text  in  Tafseer  Durre  Manthur  and  in  other kutub  is  simply  that  the  rest  of  the  Surah  was  effaced  from  the hearts  of  the  people  by  Allah  Ta‚Äôala.  Confirming  this  fact,  the Qur‚Äôaan states:

‚ÄúWhatever  We  abrogate  or  cause  to  forget from  any aayat ,  We  reveal better than it or similar to it.‚ÄĚ (106, Al-Baqarah)

Among  the  ways  of  Divine  Abrogation  was  effacement.  That  is, Allah  Ta‚Äôala  caused  the  Sahaabah  to  completely  forget  what  they had  memorized.  Mentioning  an  example  of  effacement,  Hadhrat Ibn  Umar (radhiyallahu  anhu)  narrated:

“There  were  two  men  who  recited  a  Surah  which  Rasulullah (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  had  recited  to  them.  Thus,  they would  recite  it.  One  night  whilst  they  were  performing  Salaat, they  were  unable  to  recite  it  (not)  even  a  letter. 

In¬† the¬† morning they¬† hastened¬† to¬† Rasulullah¬† (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam)¬† and mentioned¬† this¬† occurrence.¬† He¬† said:¬† ‚ÄėVerily,¬† it¬† (the¬† Surah)¬† is¬† from those¬† (Surahs/s)¬† which¬† have¬† been¬† abrogated.‚Äô¬† Thus¬† they¬† had forgotten it.‚ÄĚ

Abrogation  occurred  only  while  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  was  alive.  Nothing  of  the  Qur’aan  was  forgotten  or effaced  after  the  demise  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam).  Any  such  suggestion  is  in  direct  conflict  with  the assurance  of  Allah  Ta’ala  stated  in  the  Qur’aan,  and  also  nugatory of  the  perfection  of  Islam  as  confirmed  in  the  Qur’an,  and  is tantamount  to  refuting  the  completion  of  Nubuwwat.  But  the Qur’aan  confirms  the  completion  and  perfection  of  the  mission  of Nubuwwat.

Another example of Naskh appears in the following narration:

‚ÄúZaid  Ibn  Thaabit  and  Saeed  Bin Al ‚ÄôAa‚Äôs  (radhiyallahu  anhuma) while  writing  the  Mushaf  came  across  this    (i.e.  the  verse  of  Rajm ‚ÄďStoning).  Then  Zaid  said:  ‚ÄėI  heard  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam) saying: 

image

The  Sahaabah  were  aware  of  this  verse  and  they  were  also  aware that  while  its  text  no  longer  constituted  part  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan,  the law  of  Rajm  remained  valid.  In  this  regard  Hadhrat  Umar (radhiyallahu  anhu)  said:  ‚ÄúVerily  the  Nabi  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  had  stoned.  Verily  Abu  Bakr  had  stoned,  and  I  have stoned  after  him.  Soon  shall  there  come  people  who  will  deny Rajm.‚ÄĚ

Another¬† ridiculous¬† contention¬† of¬† deletion¬† is¬† the¬† Shiah¬† claim regarding¬† the¬† verse¬† of¬†¬†radha‚Äôah¬† (suckling¬† ‚Äst breast-feeding). According¬† to¬† a¬† narration¬† of¬† Hadhrat¬† Aishah¬† (radhiyallahu¬† anha), two¬† verses¬† were¬† written¬† on¬† a¬† paper.¬† The¬† one¬† was¬† the¬†¬†¬† of¬†¬†Rajm¬† and the¬† other¬† of¬†¬†Radhaa‚Äôah.¬† The¬† paper¬† on¬† which¬† these¬† two¬† verses were¬† written¬† were¬† under¬† a¬† pillow.¬†

A  goat  entered  and  ate  the paper.  The  convoluted  brains  of  the  Shiah  kuffaar  constrain  them to  allege  that  since  the  goat  had  devoured  the  paper,  the  verses were lost, hence not to be found in the Qur’aan.

The  filth  of  kufr  which  deranges  brains  is  mentioned  in  the following Qur’aanic Aayat:

‚ÄúAnd, He (Allah) casts rijs (filth) on those who lack intelligence.‚ÄĚ

The  ludicrous  claim  of  the  Shiahs  in  this  regard  evokes  mirth. Even  if  a  goat  had  consumed  the  entire  Qur’aanic  compilation,  it would  not  have  affected  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur’aan.  The  very first  Compilation  was  not  compiled  from  another  compilation.  If all  the  copies  of  the  Qur’aan  today  are  destroyed  by  the  kuffaar, the  Qur’aan  will  still  be  authentically  reproduced. 

When  this  is the  state  regarding  the  whole  Qur’aan,  what  should  be  averred about  two  verses  eaten  by  a  goat.  Hadhrat  Aishah  (radhiyallahu anha)  was  aware  of  the  verses.  She  recited  the  two  Aayats even  after  the goat  had  consumed  the  paper.  Innumerable  other  Sahaabah  were aware  of  the  verses. 

So  what  prevented  them  from  including  these two  verses  in  the  Qur’aan  Majeed?  It  was  the  knowledge  of Naskh  which  negated  the  inclusion  of  these  two  verses  and numerous  other  Aayaat.  But  to  say  that  these  two  verses  were  lost because  of  the  goat,  is  ridiculously  absurd  and  it  only  highlights the corruption of Shiah thinking and falsehood.

‚ÄúThose  who commit  kufr and belie  Our  Aayaat, verily for them there  is a disgraceful  punishment.‚ÄĚ (Al-Hajj,  57)

How  could  it  have  been  possible  for  any  portion  of  the  Divinely Protected  Qur’aan  to  have  been  lost  during  the  very  age  of  the Sahaabah?

About this Qur’aan, Allah Ta’ala says:

‚ÄúAllah  has revealed the  most beautiful  Speech which is a  Book  of similarities and oft-repeated.  The  bodies of those  who fear their Rabb quiver.  Then their bodies and their hearts  become  tender (inclining)  to the  remembrance  of  Allah.  That is  Allah‚Äôs guidance with which He  guides whomever  He  wills.‚ÄĚ (Az-Zumar,  23)

Hadhrat¬† Ibn¬† Abbaas¬† (radhiyallahu¬† anhu)¬† narrated:¬† ‚ÄúWahi¬† would be¬† revealed¬† to¬† Nabi¬† (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam)¬† during¬† the¬† night, and¬† he¬† would¬† forget¬† it¬† during¬† the¬† day.¬† Then¬† Allah¬† revealed: ‚ÄėWhatever¬† We¬† abrogate¬† or¬† caused¬† to¬† forget‚Ķ.. ‚ÄĚ (106¬† Surah Baqarah).

Confirming  the  substitution  of  one  with  another,  the  Qur’aan states:

‚ÄúWhen  We  substitute an  for another   ‚Äď  and  Allah  knows  best whatever He  reveals  ‚Äď  they  (the  kuffaar/Shiahs/ Munaafiqeen) say:  ‚ÄėYou (O Muhammad!)  are  a fraud.‚Äô In fact, they are  (the hypocrite) fraud, but most of  them know not.

Say that¬†Ruhul¬† Qudus¬†(Jibraeel)¬† reveals¬† it¬† from your¬†Rabb¬†with the Truth to firmly¬† establish those¬† who believe, and as a glad tiding for¬† the Muslimeen.‚ÄĚ (An-Nahl, s 101 and 102)

SHIA  AND CHRISTIAN ABSURDITY

Like  the  Christian  enemies  of  the  Qur’aan,  the  Shiah  enemies  of the  Qur’aan  and  Islam  claim  that  the  Qur’aan  we  have  today  is not  the  Qur’aan  revealed  to  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam). 

But  it  is  the  Qur’aan  compiled  and  standardized  by Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu  anhu).  Stating  this  allegation which  the  Shiah  kuffaar  also  support,  the  Christian  missionary, Gilchrist  writing  in  his  booklet,  Evidences  for  the  Collection  of the Qur’an,  avers:

‚ÄúThis¬† booklet¬† contains¬† a¬† brief¬† historical¬† survey¬† of¬† the¬† collection of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† text¬† from¬† the¬† time¬† of¬† Muhammad‚Äôs¬† death¬† until¬† the caliphate¬† of¬† Uthman¬† when¬† the¬† text¬† was¬† finally¬† standardised¬† into the form in which it appears today.‚ÄĚ (The Majlis¬†have already rebutted his moronic contentions)

Inspite of their  desperate  and abortive  endeavours  to show that the Qur‚Äôaan-e-Hakeem  is  not  authentic  and  that  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Shareef has  suffered  the  same  fate  as  the  Bible  in  regard  to  distortion, interpolation  and  deletion,  the  Shiah  kuffaar  like  John  Gilchrist, have  been  constrained  to  concede  that  the  present  Qur‚Äôaan  is  the standardized  compilation  of  Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu anhu).

From  this  admission  made  by  the  Shiah  kuffaar  and  the  Christian missionaries, the following facts are significant:

(1)  The  supposed  changes  which  occurred  in  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Shareef were  effected  in  the  period  from  the  death  of  Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) until Uthmaan‚Äôs (radhiyallahu anhu) Khilafat.

(2)  Since  the  time  of  the  Khilaafat  of  Hadhrat  Uthmaan (radhiallahu  anhu)  to  this  day  there  exists  the  ‚Äústandardised  form‚ÄĚ of  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Shareef.  In  other  words,  the  kuffaar  concede  at least  this  much  that  the  Qur‚Äôaan  which  the  World  of  Islam possesses  and  recites  today  is  the  same  Standard  Form  which  was ‚Äúfinally standardised‚ÄĚ by Hadhrat Uthmaan (radhiallahu anhu).

The  demise  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  occurred  in the  year  632  of  the  Christian  Era  and  the  demise  of  Hadhrat Uthmaan  (radhiallahu  anhu)  happened  in  656  of  the  Christian  Era. Thus,  the  period  from  the  demise  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  to  the  demise  of  Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiallahu  anhu) was  a  duration  of  a  mere  24  years. 

But  for  the  purpose  of  our discussion  this  period  shrinks  to  a  mere  14-  years  since  the  event of  the  standardization  of  the  Qur’aan  Shareef  by  Hadhrat Uthmaan  (radhiallahu  anhu)  took  place  in  about  26 A.H (646  C.E.) after the Conquest of Armenia by the forces of Islam.

These  facts  lead  to  the  conclusion  that  the  alleged  change  and interpolation  (supposed  by  the  Shiah  kuffaar  and  the  Christians) occurred  during  these  14  years. 

At¬† the¬† end¬† of¬† this¬† brief¬† period,¬† the process¬† of¬† interpolation¬† was¬† effectively¬† halted¬† by¬† Hadhrat Uthmaan¬† (radhiallahu¬† anhu)¬† who¬† arranged¬† the¬† Standardised¬† Copy of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† Shareef¬† ‚ÄĒ¬† the¬† very¬† same¬† version¬† which¬† we possess¬† to¬† this¬† day,¬† a¬† fact¬† which¬† Gilchrist¬† as¬† well¬† as¬† the¬† Shiah¬†kuffaar¬†concede.

In¬† conceding¬† that¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† which¬† we¬† have¬† today¬† in¬† our possession¬† is¬† the¬† ‚Äútext‚Ä̬† which¬† was¬† ‚Äústandardised¬† into¬† the¬† form¬† in which¬† it¬† appears¬† today‚Ä̬† by¬† Hadhrat¬† Uthmaan¬† (radhiyallahu¬† anhu) more¬† than¬† 1400¬† hundred¬† years¬† ago,¬† the¬† deniers¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan ludicrously¬† imply¬† that¬† while¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† Shareef¬† withstood¬† the ravages¬† and¬† vicissitudes¬† of¬† fourteen¬† hundred¬† years¬† (from¬† the¬† time of¬† Uthmaan‚ÄĒradhiyallahu¬† anhu¬† ‚ÄĒto¬† the¬† present¬† age)¬†

And  retained the  authenticity  bestowed  by  Uthmaan  (radhiallahu  anhu),  it  (the Qur’aan)  failed  to  maintain  its  originality  during  the  short  period of  14  years  from  the  demise  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  to  the  time  when  it  was  standardised  by  Hadhrat Uthmaan  (radhiallahu  anhu). 

This  conclusion  is  absurd  in  the extreme.  No  unbiased  and  intelligent  person  will  be  prepared  to accept  that  the  Qur’aan,  despite  withstanding  the  ravages  of  14 centuries  and  maintaining  its  form  (as  standardised  by  Uthmaan), lacked  the  ability  to  perform  this  same  feat  of  maintaining  its authenticity  in the  short period of  14  years.

How  is  it  possible  for  the  Qur‚Äôaan  to  have  been  so  well  preserved for  14  centuries,  but  could  not  be  preserved  in  the  form  handed down  by Prophet Muhammad  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  for  only  14 years,  in  an  era  teeming  with  superb  Huffaaz  and  senior Sahaabah?

If  the  process  of  interpolation  and  deletion  had  set  in  after  the demise  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam),  how  was  this supposed  process  arrested  and  eliminated  to  give  rise  to  a Qur’aanic  version  which  held  its  originality  and  authenticity  for more  than  fourteen  centuries,  i.e.  from  the  time  of  Uthmaan (radhiyallahu  anhu)  to  this  day? 

The  following  facts  should  not escape the seeker of the truth:

(i)  After  the  demise  of  Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  the process  of  the  rise  of  deviated  sects  set  in.  Groups  inimical  to  the Sahaabah  and the true  teachings of  Islam reared their heads.

(ii)  A  great  number  of  Sahaabah  had  already  departed  from  this world.

(iii)  In  contrast,  the  number  of  the  Sahaabah  living  during  the fourteen  years  from  the  demise  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  to  the  occasion  of  the  ‚Äústandardisation‚ÄĚ  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan Shareef was greater.

Keeping¬† in¬† mind¬† these¬† facts,¬† it¬† can¬† never¬† be¬† accepted¬† that¬† inspite of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† retaining¬† its¬† originality¬† (the¬† ‚Äúform¬† standardised‚ÄĚ by¬† Uthmaan)¬† for¬† 14 long¬† centuries when all¬† the¬† Sahaabah, the¬† first students,¬† scribes¬† and¬† teachers¬† of¬† the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† had¬† departed¬† and deviated¬† sects¬† sprang¬† up,¬† it¬† (the¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† Shareef)¬† lost¬† its authenticity¬† in¬† the¬† very¬† initial¬† fourteen¬† years¬† after¬† the¬† demise¬† of Rasulullah¬† (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam),¬† a¬† period¬† in¬† which¬† all¬† the Sahaabah¬† existed.¬†

If¬† the¬† first¬† Scribes¬† ‚Äst those¬† who¬† wrote¬† down¬† the Qur‚Äôaan¬† Shareef¬† under¬† the¬† direct¬† supervision¬† of¬† Rasulullah (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam)¬† ‚Äst the¬† first¬†¬†Huffaaz¬† ‚Äst those¬† who memorized¬† the¬† whole¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† under¬† the¬† supervision¬† of Rasulullah¬† (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam)¬† ‚Äst

And  the  first  Students  of Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  had  failed  to  preserve  the originality  and  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur’aan  Shareef  in  the  first 14  years,  then  how  was  it  possible  for  the  Ummah  of  Islam  to have  retained  the  authenticity  of  the  Uthmaani  Version  for  such  a long  period of 14  centuries when  so many  forces  inimical to  Islam were  arraigned  against  the  Qur’aan  and  Islam? 

If  this  feat  could have  been  accomplished  by  those  not  directly  connected  with  the Qur’aan  (i.e.  non-Sahaabah),  what  was  the  difficulty  which precluded  those  directly  connected  to  the  Qur’aan  (viz.,  the Sahaabah)  to  have  retained  the  authenticity  of  Prophey Muhammad’s Version  for  a  mere  14  years?  Intelligence  will  not  accept  the slander of the Shiah kuffaar.

In  the  attempt  to  negate  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Shareef, the  Shiah  kuffaar  have  been  compelled  to  ignore  fourteen centuries  which  have  passed  over  the  Qur‚Äôaan-e-Hakeem  ‚Äď fourteen  hundred  years  which  saw  no  change  overcoming  the Qur‚Äôaan.  Just  as  the  Christians  claim  that  the  present  Qur‚Äôaan  is the  version  compiled  by  Hadhrat  Uthmaan  (radhiyallahu  anhu),  so too, do the Shiahs allege.

What¬† hidden¬† and¬† mysterious¬† power¬† preserved¬† the¬† authenticity¬† and originality¬† of¬† the¬† ‚Äústandardised‚Ä̬† version¬† for¬† full¬† fourteen¬† hundred years?¬† On the¬† authenticity¬† of¬† this Version there¬† is¬† consensus of the Christians and Shiah¬†kuffaar.

ALLAH’S  PROMISE

‚ÄúVerily  We  revealed the  Thikr (Qur‚Äôaan), and verily  We  are  its Protectors.‚ÄĚ (Al-Hijr,  9)

In  fulfilment  of  this  Promise,  Allah  Ta’ala  had  established  an elaborate  array  of  measures  to  ensure  that  the  Qur’aan  Majeed remains  pure,  unadulterated  and  authentic  until  the  Day  of Qiyaamah. 

The  measures  ordained by  Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal were:

(1)  The  Qur‚Äôaan  Majeed  was  taken  down  in  writing  immediately on  its  revelation.  Thus,  the  entire  Qur‚Äôaan  was  preserved  in  the written  form  during  the  very  lifetime  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

(2)  Besides  the  written  Qur‚Äôaan  recorded  under  the  direct supervision  of  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam),  there  were many  Sahaabah  who  had  written  the  Qur‚Äôaan  from  their  own memories.  All  of  these  copies  were  authentic.  Since  they  and others  were  Huffaaz,  there  was  no  difficulty  correcting  any possible  error  in  the  personal  written  copies  of  the  various Sahaabah.

(3)  The  miraculous  Institution  of  Hifz  is  the  best  method  which has ensured the  authenticity  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan  for  more  than  fourteen centuries.  Many  Christian  critics  of  Islam  have  acknowledged  this fact.

(4)  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  was  the  best  Haafiz  of the  Qur’aan  thus  precluding  the  possibility  of  the  slightest  error creeping  in.  Hadhrat  Jibraeel  (alayhis  salaam)  listened  to  the recitation  of  the  entire  Qur’aan  by  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  once  every  year  during  the  month  of  Ramadhaan.

During  the  last  Ramadhaan,  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  recited  the  entire  Qur’aan  from  memory  twice  to Jibraeel  (alayhis  salaam)  who  was  the  primary  medium  for  the revelation of the Qur’aan.

(5)  It  was  from  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi  wasallam)  that  all  the Sahaabah  acquired  the  Qur‚Äôaan.  Innumerable  among  them became  Huffaaz  of  the  highest  merit.  Rasulullah  (sallallahu  alayhi wasallam)  was  their  Master  in  this  field.  The  standard  of  Hifz  of the Sahaabah was therefore unquestionably of the highest order.

(6)  Among  the  most  powerful  Huffaaz  were  the  Khulafa-e-Raashideen,  Hadhrat  Zaid  Bin  Thaabit  and  innumerable  others among the Sahaabah.

(7)  Among  the  scribes  who  took  down  the  Qur‚Äôaan  in  writing immediately  after  revelation  were  the  Khulafa-e-Raashideen,  Zaid Ibn  Thaabit,  Ubay  Bin  Ka‚Äôb,  Zubair  Bin  Awwaam, Ameer Muaawiyah, Mugheerah  Bin  Shu‚Äôbah,  Khalid  Bin  Waleed,  Thaabit  Bin  Qais, Abaan Bin Saeed (radhiyallahu anhum) as well as others.

(8) Innumerable Sahaabah were Huffaaz of the Qur‚Äôaan Majeed.

(9)  It  was  the  general  practice  at  the  time  for  almost  all  people  to complete the recitation of a Qur‚Äôaan once every ten days.

When  Hadhrat  Zaid  Bin  Thaabit  (radhiyallahu  anhu)  was  handed the  task  of  compiling  the  Qur‚Äôaan  Majeed,  it  was  not  an  obscure book  which  had  to  be  dug  out  from  archives  or  some  other forgotten  places.  He  himself  was  a  powerful  Haafiz,  and  he  had the  expert  assistance  of  other  Huffaaz  as  well  as  the  many  written manuscripts.

THIS QUR‚ÄôAAN

‚ÄúThe kuffaar say: ‚ÄėNever shall we  believe  in  this Qur‚Äôaan‚Ķ. ‚ÄĚ (Naba‚Äô,  31)  

This¬† is¬† precisely¬† what¬† the¬† Shiah¬†¬†kuffaar¬† say¬† about¬† ‚Äėthis‚Äô Qur‚Äôaan which¬† has¬† existed¬† in¬† the¬†¬†Ummah¬† since¬† the¬† time¬† of¬† Rasulullah (sallallahu¬† alayhi¬† wasallam).¬†¬†This¬†is¬† the¬† only¬† Qur‚Äôaan¬† which¬† the entire¬†¬†Ummah¬† from¬† the¬† very¬† inception¬† of¬† Islam¬†¬†knew,¬† recited¬† and followed.

And  even  all  the  noble  personalities  whom  the  Shiahs  proclaim  to  be  their  infallible  Imaams  recited  only  this Qur’aan. The  Shiah  kuffaar  themselves  affirm  this  fact.  The  Qur’aan states with  clarity  that  those  who  do  not  believe  in this Qur’aan,  are kuffaar, and that is precisely what the Shiah are.

‚ÄúVerily, it  (the  Qur‚Äôaan)  is most  certainly a glorious Book. Baatil (falsehood)  cannot  approach it  neither from  Front nor  from behind.  (Because)  It is a Revelation from (Allah)  The  Most  Wise,  The  Most Praiseworthy.‚ÄĚ (Haameem As-Sajdah,  42)

This Qur‚Äôaan  is  a  glorious  Book  revealed  by  Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal, Thus,  the  slightest  possibility  of  falsehood  ‚Äď  interpolation, alteration  and  deletion  ‚Äď  is    totally  precluded.  Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal in  this   unequivocally  refutes  the  possibility  of  falsehood afflicting the Qur‚Äôaan.

Although  Shiahs  accept  the  authenticity  of  the  Qur‚Äôan,  they  irrationally with  deranged  brains  refute  the    meaning  conveyed  by  the  Verse. In  other  words,  they  belie  Allah  Azza  Wa  Jal.  They  imply  by  their rejection  of  this Qur‚Äôaan  that  the  categorical  negation  of falsehood stated by Allah Ta‚Äôala in this  is false.

This Qur‚Äôaan  is  guarded  in  Looh  Mahfooz,  and  it  is  guarded  here on  earth.  According  to  the  Shiah  kuffaar  it  is  guarded  only  in Looh  Mahfooz,  not  here  on  earth.  Therefore,  the  assurance  given by  Allah  Azza  Jal  in  the  Qur‚Äôaan  regarding  the  Divine  Protection enjoyed  by  the  Qur‚Äôaan  is,  Nauthubillah!,  false  according  to  the  religion of the Shiah kuffaar.

‚ÄúThis Qur‚Äôaan cannot be  fabricated (nor  can  fraud   be  perpetrated in  it  by  others) besides  Allah. But,  it   is a verification  of the  (Scriptures) before  it and  an  exposition  of the  Law.  There  is no doubt in  it. It  is from  Rabbul  Aalameen.‚ÄĚ (Yoonus,  37)

Allah  Ta’ala  gives  the  emphatic  assurance  that  the  authenticity  of this Qur’aan  will  be  maintained.  No  one  will  ever  be  able  to commit  fraud  in  it.  Only  Allah  Ta’ala  can  effect  change  in  His Qur’aan.  No  one  else  had  ever  succeeded  in  any  conspiratorial interpolation. 

As  much  as  the  Shiah  kuffaar  had  laboured  to denounce  this Qur’aan  as  a  forgery,  they    have  miserably  failed, for  the  responsibility  of  safeguarding  this Qur’aan  devolves  on Allah Azza Wa Jal.

WHAT THE CRITICS  SAY  ABOUT THE QUR‚ÄôAAN

Dr. Steingoss says:

‚ÄėWe¬† may¬† well¬† say¬† the¬† Quran¬† is¬† one¬† of¬† the¬† grandest¬† books¬† ever written¬† .¬† .¬† .¬† such¬† a¬† work¬† is¬† a¬† problem¬† of¬† the¬† highest¬† interest¬† to every¬† thoughtful observer of¬† the destinies of¬† mankind.‚Äô

‚ÄėThat¬† the¬† best¬† of¬† Arab¬† witnesses¬† have¬† never¬† succeeded¬† in producing¬† anything¬† equal¬† to¬† the¬† merits¬† in¬† Quran¬† .¬† .¬† .¬† To¬† compose such¬† revelations¬† at¬† will¬† was¬† beyond¬† the¬† power¬† of¬† the¬† most¬† expert literary artist.‚Äô ‚Äď Encyclopaedia Britannica.

‚ÄėHowever¬† often¬† we¬† turn¬† to¬† it¬† (Quran)¬† .¬† .¬† .¬† it¬† soon¬† attracts,¬† astounds and¬† in¬† the¬† end¬† enforces¬† our¬† reverence¬† .¬† .¬† .¬† Thus¬† this¬† Book¬† will¬† go on exercising¬† through all¬† ages a most potent influence.‚Äô ‚Äď Goethe.

‚ÄėThe¬† age¬† of¬† the¬† Vedas¬† Puranas¬† is¬† gone:¬† Now¬† the¬† Quran¬† is¬† the¬† only book to guide the¬† world.‚Äô ‚Äď Guru Nanak¬†

‚ÄėThe¬† miracle¬† of¬† Islam¬† par¬† excellence¬† is¬† the¬† Quran¬† .¬† .¬† .¬† How¬† could this¬† marvellous¬† book¬† be¬† the¬† work¬† of¬† Muhammad,¬† an¬† illiterate Arab . . . The¬† Quran¬† could not be the¬† work of¬† an uneducated man . . . Unless he had the help of the¬† Almighty.‚Äô ‚Äď Dr Laura V. Vaglieri.

‚ÄėBy¬† a¬† fortune¬† absolutely¬† unique¬† in¬† history,¬† Mohammed¬† is¬† a threefold¬† founder¬† of¬† a¬† nation,¬† of¬† an¬† empire,¬† and¬† of¬† a¬† religion.¬† The Quran¬† is¬† a¬† Book¬† which¬† is¬† a¬† poem,¬† a¬† code¬† of¬† laws,¬† a¬† book¬† of common¬† prayer,¬† all¬† in¬† one¬† and¬† is¬† reverenced¬† by¬† a¬† large¬† section¬† of the¬† human¬† race¬† as¬† a¬† miracle¬† of¬† purity¬† and¬† style,¬† of¬† wisdom¬† and¬† of truth.¬† It¬† is¬† the¬† one¬† miracle¬† claimed¬† by¬† Mohammad¬† ‚Äst his¬† ‚Äėstanding miracle‚Äô¬† as he¬† called it; and a¬† miracle indeed it¬† is.‚Äô ‚Äď Reverend Bosworth Smith.

‚ÄėThe¬† best¬† Arab¬† writers¬† have¬† never¬† succeeded¬† in¬† producing anything¬† equal in merit¬† to the¬† Quran itself.‚Äô ‚Äď Palmer.

‚ÄėThere¬† is¬† probably¬† in¬† the¬† world¬† no¬† other¬† book¬† (Quran)¬† which¬† has remained twelve¬† (now 14) centuries with¬† so pure¬† a¬† text.‚Äô ‚Äď Sir William Muir.

‚ÄėIt¬† (Quran)¬† is¬† a¬† literal¬† revelation¬† of¬† God,¬† dictated¬† to¬† Muhammed by¬† Gabriel,¬† perfect¬† in¬† every¬† letter.¬† It¬† is¬† an¬† ever-present¬† miracle witnessing¬† to¬† itself¬† and¬† Muhammed,¬† the¬† prophet¬† of¬† God.¬† Its miraculous¬† quality¬† resides¬† partly¬† in¬† its¬† style,¬† so¬† perfect¬† and¬† lofty, that¬† neither¬† men¬† nor¬† jinn¬† could¬† produce¬† a¬† single¬† chapter¬† to compare¬† with¬† its¬† briefest¬† chapter,¬† and¬† partly¬† in¬† its¬† content¬† of teachings,¬† prophecies¬† about¬† the¬† future,¬† and¬† amazingly¬† accurate information¬† such¬† as¬† the¬† illiterate¬† Muhammed¬† could¬† never¬† have gathered of his own accord.‚Äô ‚Äď Harry Gaylord Dorman.

‚ÄėAll¬† those¬† who¬† are¬† acquainted¬† with¬† the¬† Quran,¬† in¬† Arabic¬† agree¬† in praising¬† the¬† beauty¬† of¬† this¬† religious¬† book;¬† its¬† grandeur¬† of¬† form¬† is so¬† sublime¬† that¬† no¬† translation¬† into¬† any¬† European¬† language¬† can allow us to appreciate it.‚Äô ‚Äď Edward Montet.

CONCLUSION

The  claim  of  the  Shiah  kuffaar  that  even  the  Ulama  of  Islam concede  that  a  substantial  amount  of  the  Qur‚Äôaan  is  missing  is absolutely  fallacious  and  slanderous.  There  is  not  a  single  Aalim in  Islam‚Äôs  fourteen  century  history  who  has  even  hinted  to  the possibility of any portion of the Qur‚Äôaan Majeed being missing.

The¬† ‚Äúmissing‚Ä̬† mentioned¬† in¬† the¬† Books¬† of¬† Islam¬† refer¬† to¬†Mansookh¬† (Abrogated)¬† verses¬† only.¬† The¬† contention¬† of¬† the¬† Shiah¬†kuffaar¬†is therefore dismissed as utterly baseless.

Allah knows Best.
