Muslims often claim that the Quran has been perfectly preserved, and that this is proof of its divine origin. However, when we examine Islam’s most trusted sources, we find that entire chapters of the Quran were forgotten, large passages were lost, and individual verses were eaten by a sheep. Much of the Quran was lost when Muslims who had parts memorized died in battle. Indeed, the Quran was only compiled into a physical book to keep more of it from being lost. So, if Muslim sources say that the Quran went through countless changes, why do Muslim apologists lie by telling Muslims that the Quran has been perfectly preserved? David Wood and Al Fadi discuss the issue.

For a short introduction to this topic, be sure to watch “A Brief History of the Quran”: A Brief History of the Quran (David Wood and Nabeel Qureshi) - YouTube

Thing is…Christianity and all the other religions have the same, if not more, levels of inconsistency. It’s mad that this logic you’re using to refute Islam, you’re not also using to refute Christianity and all other religions. The optimum approach here is to proclaim atheism, or even simulation theory!

Imagine how crazy the versus that they left out must have been.

David, you should present the gospel, plain and simple, at the end of every video. Maybe it can help some see it

How To Go To Heaven
According to the holy Word of God in the King James Bible!
It is very simple to be saved and takes only a minute to explain. Please let me show you how to get to Heaven from the Bible, God’s Word…

Man is a Sinner in the Eyes of a Holy God.

Isaiah 53:6, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”Romans 3:19, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.”John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”Romans 3:10, “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

There is a Price For Our Sin―Burning in Hell Forever.

Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.”2nd Thessalonians 1:8, “In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.”Revelation 20:15, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Jesus paid that price by dying on the cross and shedding His blood; Christ was buried and bodily rose again the third day!

Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”1st Timothy 1:15, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.”1st Peter 1:18-19, “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ…”1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” This is the Gospel.

By faith in Jesus Christ ALONE we are immediately saved.Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”John 11:25, “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”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.”John 6:40, “And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.”Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.”Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”1st Corinthians 3:11, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”

Salvation is NOT found in a religion or good works, but in a Person… The LORD JESUS CHRIST!

Simply BELIEVE the Gospel and You Are Saved!

I’m not buying the “sheep ate it” story

finally this is very relieving and enlightening our minds for what we want to hear

The Qur’an can’t be trusted.

Dr. Dizzle … preach the Righteous Gospel in the Face of Islam !

It would be interesting to see those two hypocrites direct this high powered perception and analytical skills at Christianity and Judaism

13:45 - missinterpetation or missunderstanding the meaning of Umar’s words. Reason to leave Ubays recitation being that he clinged on abbrogated and replaced verses. Ex when alcohol was adressed by God at first, the verses went something like "alcohol has both positive and negative effects but negative mostly. The second time adressed the verse went like “dont go to prayers while intoxicated”, but this second verse was abrogated and taken away from the Quran completely and instead the new verse God revealed to take its place was the verse totally prohibiting alcohol altogether.

Soviet photographs tended to change too🤫

No matter what Islam is false Quran is false and fabricated mr Muhammad is false in fact most obvious false prophet in history praise lord Jesus Christ he’s living God May lord bless you brothers abundantly hallelujah

What about the Birmingham manuscript

The Qu’ran is 100% pure and true. I ask any person that denies that to respectfully provide proof.

Robin Hobbs realm of the elderlings book series has been perfectly preserved, and no changes have been made since it’s inception. This is a miracle! And means that the texts within are true, and the word of god!
Now where is my white magic river, talking boats, and flying dragons?

GOD BLESS :latin_cross::heart::six_pointed_star::earth_africa::latin_cross:

As a rather recent convert from Islam, I mentioned this very topic as a claim and asked a scholar about preservation of Quran.
The dialogue was exactly like below ;

Me : Dear … , What do you say about the preservation issue. For example when we look at Sahih Muslim, Al Buhari and Al Tabari’s comments on preservation compared to Surah 15:9 ?
Imam : Well which Quran or Hadith have you looked at ? There’s no such thing as .
Me : Which Quran ? Are there more than one ?
Imam : You are misleading things.
Me : I am trying to learn, you are supposed to answer this ? To whom I will ask, other than you Imams ?
Imam : You claim there are more than one Quran. You do this by intention …
Me : No. You asked “which Quran?”. If you are not going to answer, then I will find a translation to find answer in Quran.
Imam : No. You can’t. You must read in Arabic, to get the full meaning .
Me : Why ? Is this religion only for Arab speakers ?
Imam : No. But you must read in the local language, it is commanded. You are not Muslim ? Why do you question such things. That is shirk !
Me : OK. Thanks for the information (not) provided.

That’s the end of the story. I am sure many Muslims out there would experience almost same things when asking similar topics to a local Imam.
So, you make your decision about this religion…

Regards and have a blessed Day !

Problem with this entire video is they both completely ignore the “preservation” ideas pertaining to the whole overall Message of the Quran being tawheed. Technically the Quran was not changed in this regard and so preservation is true. But David is looking at the style of writing, the punctuation of writing, and other stuff irrelevant to the actual overall message. Furthermore he uses very weak and non trustworthy sources that support everything he’s saying. And he goes to ridiculous lengths to glorify and worship Sahih Bukhhari as the ultimate source of reference even more so than the Quran itself. Yes, Bukhari has amongst if not the most trustworthy references but again, David is completely ignoring the primary message and covering it up by saying the letter is gone, the phrase is gone, the chapter is gone, etc. The idea the Quran is preserved is very accurate as opposed to the Bible for example that most definitely is not preserved and has been changed my men and unknown men no longer making it the word of god.

This is a poor video that does not show Islam is false nor does it invalidate the Qurans preservation. The preservation is proof. The prophecies we can see now are proof. The actual understanding of the science is proof. The historical predictions even during the prophets time were proof.

You guys are all sheep.

This video is totally wrong. Before believing anything everyone should double check.
