Is it true that the Quran is copied from the Bible?
The Qur'an is not so much copied from the Bible, but
clearly based on it. There were already many Jews and Christians
living around Mecca and Medina by the time of Muhammad and even his
cousin was a Christian. Muhammad had ready access to the teachings
of these older religions.
If the Bible is shown not to be true on fundamental issues, then the Qur'an must also be untrue.
No. This is not true. All evidence show that the Qur'an could not have been copied from the Bible. Take for example the story of the flood that occurred in the days of the prophet Noah, on whom be peace. This event is narrated in both the Bible and the Qur'an. A careful examination of the two versions will show that the Qur'anic version could have come from no other source but God alone. One important difference between the two accounts is that whereas the Bible describes the flood as a worldwide flood (see Genesis Ch. 7) the Qur'an mentions it as a local flood affecting the people of Noah (see Qur'an 7:59-64). Today it is acknowledged that no record exists of a worldwide flood occurring at the time specified in the Bible. How did the author of the Qur'an avoid this mistake unless the author was God Himself?
The closest thing in history to a flood like the one described in the Bible and the Qur'an, is a discovery made by Archaeologist Sir Charles Leonard Wooley. In 1929 he discovered remains from a flood which occurred around 4000 BC. His findings are described in the book entitled The Bible as History by Werner Keller.
Keller tells us: "The incredible discovery at Ur made headline news in the United States and in Britain" (The Bible as History, 2nd Revised Edition, Bantam Books, 1980, p.27). But was this a worldwide flood? After describing the extent of the flood, Keller explains; "Looking at the map we should call it today 'a local occurrence"' (p.28). "In other words." writes Keller. that flood was "obviously not of sufficient magnitude for the Biblical Flood" (p.29). Furthermore, he says; "A flood of the unimaginable extent described in the Bible still remains 'archaeologically not demonstrated" (pp.29-30).
Another comparison will again demonstrate that the Qur'an was not copied from the Bible. In the Bible we are told that God drowned the Pharaoh and his army when they pursued Moses, on whom be peace, and his people (see Exodus 14:28). The clear indication in that description is that the body of the Pharaoh perished in the sea. However, the Qur'an dared to differ and prove true. In the Qur'an we find that God promised to preserve the body of the Pharaoh as a sign for later generations (see Qur'an 10:90-92).
True to the Qur'anic promise, the mummified body of the Pharaoh was discovered by Loret in 1898 at Thebes in the Kings' Valley (see The Bible, the Qur'an and Science by Dr. Maurice Bucaille, p.238). From there it was transported to Cairo. Elliot Smith removed its wrappings on July 8,1907 and gave a detailed description in his book entitled the Royal Mummies (19l2).
From which source did the author of the Qur'an derive this information? How did the author of the Qur'an know that the Pharaoh's body was preserved whereas the knowledge that the ancient Egyptians mummified their dead was not discovered until recently? And how could the author of the Qur'an predict that the body of the Pharaoh will be discovered later, unless the author was God Himself?
If the author of Qur'an is God himself, then it must free from Contradiction or errors.

No. The Old Testament was written many hundreds of years before Christ and the new Testament was written in the first century. The Quran was't conceived nor written until several centuries after Christ and therefore it would be impossible for any mention or sign of the Quran to be found in the Bible. Additionally: But there are signs of the Bible in the Q'ran... the passages that were lifted out of the Bible and copied…
No religion is based on Quran and Bible. Islam is based on Quran. Judaism and Christianity is based on Bible. Most of the Quran teachings come from the Bible even though there are fundamental differences between the teachings of Quran and the Bible. Quran is the product of Muhammad's claim (the prophet of Islam). Bible is the product of about 40 different people's claim of God's revelation.
Koran or Quran is the Holy Book revealed on Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) and Bible or Injeal is the Holy Book revealed on Prophet Jesus ( Hazrat I'sa A.S). So for a non -Muslim Quran is Islam's Bible but for a Muslim Quran is Quran and Bible is the Holy Book preceding Quran. (remember for a Muslim both Holy Books are to be equally respected but Quran is to be followed)
The Quran is related to the Bible on many levels! The Quran is a divine revelation sent from God Almighty, just like the Bible is! The Bible features many of the same messengers as are featured in the Quran. Such as Adam, Noah, Moses Jesus, Abraham, and also Muhammad. May Peace and blessings from God be upon them all. The Quran also shares many of the same values as the Bible, such as: Mercy, Love…

Both the Quran (or Koran) and the Bible have a common start. Portions of the Quran outline the teachings of the prophet Mohamed, who was born 570 years after the birth of Christ. From a time line perspective, the Bible is older. Answer The Bible by far as the leader of Islam was only active in the 7th century A.D.. By then the entire Bible was formalized.
Answer No. The Quran is the holy scripture of Islam, believed by many to have been revealed to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel. The Bible is the holy scripture of Judaism and Christianity. The Quran does assume that much of the Bible is fact, and it seems to have been based on the the earlier holy book.
The similarities: Both are same God holy books. However, Muslims believe in both the Bible and Quran as God holy books while Christians believe only in the Bible and don't believe in the Quran as the holy book of God revelation to prophet Muhammad. Both agree on some historical issue and stories as eg that of Moses. Both call for good morals and conduct. The differences: The Bible is the holy book of Christians. Quran…
Both the Bible and Quran agree that Noah (Nuh in Arabic) is a prophet sent by God to his people to call them to God path and that the unbelievers were drowned in a big flood. However, the story details are viewed differently in the Bible compared to the Quran. These differences are discussed below: All the family of Noah PBUH were believers according to the Bible while both his wife & one of his…
The Quran is miraculous because it is the true word of God and everything in it is true. It's not man's word and it never will be. There is not a single error in the Quran. The Quran deals with everything in life. It is a guide to Heaven for a Muslim. If a Muslim memorizes the full Quran, they are promised Jannah(Paradise)...the highest ranks of it. If you want to know more search google.
Both books The Bible and The Holy Quran are divine books. The Bible was revealed to Isa a.s., a Holy Messenger of Allah and The Holy Quran was revealed to Mohammad s.a.w.w., the Holiest and Last Messenger of Allah. The Bible which we read now is not in its original form, means many of the messages and orders are demolished and things were added which were not from Allah. So the Bible is outdated. The…

No. However, some of the incidents from the Pentateuch is written in the Quran. Many of the accounts from the Bible that was incorporated in the Quran does not agree with Biblical accounts. A recent discovery of the Pentateuch (The DEAD SEA SCROLLS) indicate that the Bible is intact in its message at least from 2nd Century BC (Before Christ). Quran was written around 8th Century AD (After Christ), about 900 years later.
because it is their holy book like the bible is to Christians, sent from Allah :) Quran is the only Holy text in the whole human history that have remained unchanged after the prophet of Islam. we all know that there are several versions of the Torah ( The holy book of the jews ) and Bible ( the holy book of the christians ) that they differ in some parts. please pay attention that…
