Silly things Muslims say #8 (@user-jd7ej5ge5k)

Recently on a popular Muslim YouTuber channel, he posted himself in the NYC subway station doing Dawah asking people if they know they’ll make it to heaven. This question is funny coming from an Abdoool who doesn’t know if he himself will make it to heaven.

No Muslim can claim they know for certain. He approached a man who emphatically said he didn’t want to speak with him (SQ) because the man asked “is that the Islamic Qur’an?” SQ replied, “there’s only one Qur’an.” Then man chose to walk away and not talk, Muslims in the comment section then started to bash this man.

Such as Abdoool user-jd7ej5ge5k, here’s his original comment, he said that he only knows of 1 Qur’an.

Good thing for user-jd7ej5ge5k we can help him learn about his own religion. The truth is there are many Arabic Qur’an’s which have different words changing the meaning of the verse. To date, we have 40 different Qur’ans.

The most popular Qur’an among Muslims is the 1924 Cairo Edition, also known as Hafs on the authority of Asim. The second most popular among Muslims is the Warsh Qur’an used mainly in Morroco. Then we have lesser-known Arabic Qur’an’s like Qaloon, al-Susi, al-Doori, Nafi, Abu Amr, Khalaf, Abu al-Harith and many more.[1]

This person corrected user-jd7ej5ge5k saying the man was smart to not engage in such silly claims.

He was even nice enough to educate user-jd7ej5ge5k mentioning at least 2 different Qur’an’s Hafs and Warsh.

But it was not appreciated as Muslims love to keep themselves in a state of ignorance. Instead of bringing evidence which is contrary to the claim that there are multiple versions of the Qur’an, this was his response.

This Abdoool is so confident there’s only 1 Qur’an but he didn’t prove anything?! This a sad state for Islam as Muslims cannot defend the claims made against them, all they can do is make nonsensical comments. Another user chimed in saying there’s 11 Qur’ans which are not the same.

Again, user-jd7ej5ge5k gave no proof to refute the claims that there are many different Qur’ans, and he lost his cool and began to threaten “K” for mentioning 11 different Qur’an’s so much for the religion of peace.

On this blog, we bring evidence for our claims, unlike Abdoools who whine and cry but never refute our claims. Let’s give a few examples of these different Qur’ans.

Sūrat al-tawbah (The Repentance) 9:66

If we look at the 1924 Cairo Edition, also known as the Hafs Qur’an, and compare it against the other versions, we see there are differences in the Arabic.

Sūrat al-tawbah (The Repentance) 9:66 (HAFS)

Carefully compare the coloured text against the Hafs version, and you’ll see differences in diacritical markings; even the skeletal text has variations.

Sūrat al-tawbah (The Repentance) 9:66 (NAFI)
Sūrat al-tawbah (The Repentance) 9:66 (NAFEH)

Muslims would love to believe that Islam is true but there’s so much evidence against it you just cannot ignore all the facts. All 3 commenters were consistent in saying there’s more than 1 Qur’an.

Conclusion

If user-jd7ej5ge5k was honest he would have to agree that his belief of one perfectly preserved Qur’an cannot be true, it’s up to him to do his research and come to the knowledge of the truth on his own. But that’s not going to stop us from speaking the truth to Muslims, Muhammad was a false prophet, Allah is not god, and the Qur’an is a worthless book which has no salvation.

It’s our prayer that Muslims see that we care for them and want them to have the assurance of eternal life. Salvation is only found in Jesus Christ alone[2] without Christ as Saviour there’s no hope.

Footnotes

[1] VARIANTS AFFECTING GRAMMAR DUE TO AN ADDED LETTER The added tooth letter, if not a copyist error, is most probably a yā’ since the word does not make sense with any of the other possible letters of nūn , tā’ , thā’ , or bā’ . Only one word with this extra letter makes sense in this context: as a plural form of . This word can be translated “very old age” “old age.” 4 Wright describes how verbal adjectives can be in the genitive plural form to convey a superlative idea. 5 This is possibly an intentional variant which draws attention to Ibrāhīm’s extreme old age and indirectly to the miraculous nature of Isḥāq’s birth. It could also be a simple copyist error because this kind of duplication is a common mistake in manuscript traditions.

[2] John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (1.) He speaks of himself as the way, v. 6. Dost thou not know the way? I am the way, and I only, for no man comes to the Father but by me. Great things Christ here saith of himself, showing us, [1.] The nature of his mediation: He is the way, the truth, and the life. First, Let us consider these first distinctly. 1. Christ is the way, the highway spoken of, Isa. 35:8. Christ was his own way, for by his own blood he entered into the holy place (Heb. 9:12), and he is our way, for we enter by him. By his doctrine and example he teaches us our duty, by his merit and intercession he procures our happiness, and so he is the way. In him God and man meet, and are brought together. We could not get to the tree of life in the way of innocency; but Christ is another way to it. By Christ, as the way an intercourse is settled and kept up between heaven and earth; the angels of God ascend and descend; our prayers go to God, and his blessings come to us by him; this is the way that leads to rest, the good old way. The disciples followed him, and Christ tells them that they followed the road, and, while they continued following him, they would never be out of their way. 2. He is the truth. (1.) As truth is opposed to figure and shadow. Christ is the substance of all the Old-Testament types, which are therefore said to be figures of the true, Heb. 9:24. Christ is the true manna (ch. 6:32), the true tabernacle, Heb. 8:2. (2.) As truth is opposed to falsehood and error; the doctrine of Christ is true doctrine. When we enquire for truth, we need learn no more than the truth as it is in Jesus. (3.) As truth is opposed to fallacy and deceit; he is true to all that trust in him, as true as truth itself, 2 Co. 1:20. 3. He is the life; for we are alive unto God only in and through Jesus Christ, Rom. 6:11. Christ formed in us is that to our souls which our souls are to our bodies. Christ is the resurrection and the life. Secondly, Let us consider these jointly, and with reference to each other. Christ is the way, the truth, and the life; that is, 1. He is the beginning, the middle, and the end. In him we must set out, go on, and finish. As the truth, he is the guide of our way; as the life, he is the end of it. 2. He is the true and living way (Heb. 10:20); there are truth and life in the way, as well as at the end of it. 3. He is the true way to life, the only true way; other ways may seem right, but the end of them is the way of death.
