Perfect and truth can not be changed
a.
The Quran states: there is no changing the words of God.
The fact that it was sent down in the seventh century of the Christian aera, not the 20th, is irrelevant. We don't wear down a diamond by constant handling. And the passage of the centuries cannot erode the words of God.
The act - the revelation - is located in time, but it is in itself timeless.
(In Islamic theology: The Quran is uncreated, therefore eternal)
b.
As Muslims we ask, not how the book can be adapted to our lives in the world of today, but how our daily lives can be adapted to the Quran - that is the real problem

A.
The Quran states: there is no changing the words of God. (1) (Source)

Here is what we find when we check the reference for the footnote:

1
Those who believe and guarded (against evil): They shall have good news in this world's life and in the hereafter; there is no changing the words of Allah; that is the mighty achievement.
Sura Yunus (10) verses 63/64 (Source)

This Muslim writer obviously didn't realize that by linking this passage with the revelation of God, he indirectly provided evidence that the Bible could not have been corrupted. After all, if there is no changing the words of Allah, and if the Bible is Allah's word, then there can be no changing to the Bible! ...more
