The Quran: Heavenly or Earthly? (Dr. Tony Costa)

Muslims believe that the Qur’an was revealed by Allah to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel. But does the evidence support this claim?

In this video, Tony Costa examines the origins of the Qur’an.

Very well said and done, thank you, keep it going, thank you

Up yours YT

This is why Muhammad was known as “The Ear”.

Great👍 teaching, thank you😇

I recently left Islam and became a Christian.
Bcause there are numerous moral, scientific, and histrical mistakes in the Quran.
For the brothers and sisters that are still Muslims. Do not think that I hate you. I love you but I hate Islam and I think that Muslims should be shown love to because of the unfortunate predistination that they were born as Muslims.
Indeed I studied Islamic sciences and I was a very devout young Muslim. And through my studying I concluded that Islam is the worst religion ever to exist on earth and it is impossible to be from God, because of the contradiction within the Quran and the hadith and the contradictions to the bible and because of its views and laws regarding non-Muslims and regarding women’s rights, Islam says all people on earth should be Muslims or get killed if they refuse to. If they are Christians or Jews they have another choice: they can pay the tax and live under an extremly violent and strict rules of Islam regarding the Christians and the Jews. And If they do not pay the tax and live under Islamic authority they are killed and their possessions are distributed among the mujahedeen and their children and daughter or wives are distributed too and can be sold or have sex with forcefully.
Basically a sex slave.
Most Islamic laws and rules don’t come from the Quran but through the hadiths that are the sayings and actions of Mohammed. Why is that important? Because many non-Muslims who know that Islam is violent and anti-women when they read the Quran, they don’t find it that violent. The don’t read hadiths which are by ten of thousand. In fact the hadiths which are the second source of Islam are significantly more violent, anti-women and anti-non-Muslims than the Quran. Islam does not consist only of the Quran but equally of the the hadiths.
Let me count some of Its view of women from the quran and the hadith. If anybody needs any hadith or ayah (verse) about what I say, let him tell me I will give it to him/her.

Women lack mental ability.
women lack religion.
women should not go outside their home except if they have to to do something important, and if they do they should ask for permission from theor guardian, this guardian is her father, or husband if shes married. if her husband died then her brothers or even her teenager sons. And even I she gets this permission she cannot go outside except with a mahram ( a very close male relative that you cannot marry)
4 wives and limitless sex slave is permissible in Islam and for the prophet of Islam even 12 wives is ok. Do not think that this 4 wives and sex slaves will be over once the wife is in heaven or paradise. they will be with her alongside 72 virgins that are given to the men, in fact this is what exactly our imam told us in the mosque, I have to go to the mosque because I converted to Christianity secretly, If my family know that I converted, they will kill me or at least disown me.
law of Guardianship. Women are seen as children they should not do anything by themselves. for example. They cannot go to school or travel abroad. And girls education e.g reading and writing let alone the infidel’s modren science is discouraged by the salaf, which were the forefathers of Islam after a few decades of Islam’s inception. The salaf are exactly what Zakir naik’s teaching are.

Female circumcision is a good thing according to the hadiths, the prophet says it mskes sex more pleasurable for men. But today doctors and scientific and health advisors and medical association labels female (khitan) circumcision as a crime because it destroys her pleasure of sex.
Most of the inhabitant of the hell are women. because they did not obey their husband.
women can’t divorce if the husband wants to keep her.
women unlike men cannot work outside to earn money and If they can they should get their guardian’s permission.

women even if they worked hard to earn their money they receive half of their brother’s share of inheritance.

Men can wear anything they want unless the clothes they wear covers their body from belly botton to their knees, apart from that they are free what to wear. But women should cover all their body head to toe, note some say apart from their hand and face. and cannot adorn themselves like men.

young girls as young as one day old can be married off (I know you are shocked, that is because you have not heard this) and whenever they are perceived as capable of withstanding penetration of penis by thier guardianship, the husband can have sex with her. and If she refuses to let him then the husband can beat her. And the angels will curse her if she refuses.

Women can be beaten If they disobey their husband.

women can be literally sex slaves, bought and sold and have intercourse with willingly or unwillingly.

I forgot many mistakes of Islam regarding women let alone the other moral mistakes that does not relate to women, and let alone the scientific, historical mistakes.

brother embrace Jesus. He loves you. And surly grants you more right that Mohammed does.

The quran is not from GOD.JEHOVAH.
REVELATION 22:18-19.

Riveting stuff.

About the problem of the sources of certain passages in the Koran: the passage in Sura 5 that shows the influence of the Targum of Jonathan could still be revealed from Heaven, if it was previously known, but not known as something revealed. On this hypothesis, its being revealed in the Quran did not make it known for the first time, but did for the first time make it known as something revealed. If God rules all that happens, then - a Muslim could say - He would know that the text revealed in Sura 5 was like something in a Targum. That would not make the account in Sura 5 untrue.

The real problems, from a Christian POV, for accepting the Quran as what it claims to be, are in what it says about Our Lord Jesus Christ. If He is as the NT reveals Him, the Quran can - at most - be a Divine Revelation only in part. And that is being generous.

The exact reference for the passage in Koran 5.32 taken from the Mishna is: Tractate Sanhedrin, chapter 4.5. It is the only reference to Cain in the Mishna.

There is absolutely no question that Allah was worshipped by the pagan Arabs as one of many polytheistic gods.
Allah was worshipped in the Kabah at Mecca before Muhammad was born. Muhammad merely proclaimed a god the Meccans were already familiar with. The pagan Arabs never accused Muhammad of preaching a different Allah than the one they already worshipped.
Many scholars say “Allah” is derived from a compound Arabic word, AL + ILAH = Allah. “Ilah” in Arabic is “God” and “Al” in Arabic is a definite article like our word “the”. So from an English equivalent “Allah” comes from “The + God”. Others, like Arthur Jeffery say, “The common theory is that it is formed from ilah, the common word for a god, and the article al-; thus al-ilah, the god,” becomes Allah, “God.” This theory, however, is untenable. In fact, the name is one of the words borrowed into the language in pre-Islamic times from Aramaic." (Islam: Muhammad and His Religion, Arthur Jeffery, 1958, p 85)

Interestingly, not many Muslims want to accept that Allah was already being worshipped at the Ka’ba in Mecca by Arab pagans before Muhammad came. Some Muslims become angry when they are confronted with this fact. But history is not on their side. Pre-Islamic literature has proved this." (Who Is This Allah?, G. J. O. Moshay, 1994, p 138)

“But history establishes beyond the shadow of doubt that even the pagan Arabs, before Muhammad’s time, knew their chief god by the name of Allah and even, in a sense, proclaimed his unity…Among the pagan Arabs this term denoted the chief god of their pantheon, the Kaaba, with its three hundred and sixty idols.” (The Moslem Doctrine of God, Samuel M. Zwemer 1905, p 24-25)

In fact, he did not at first intend to establish a new religion, but rather to reform the belief in Allah which already existed, and to show what this belief truly signified and rightfully demanded. (Mohammed: The man and his faith, Tor Andrae, 1936, Translated by Theophil Menzel, 1960, p13-30)

why do we call blatant plagiarism “borrowing” ?

this guy seems that he didn’t understood that all holybooks came from the same God, lol. man UR from the people of the book. yes the stories are almost the same but what a bout the scientific facts that U can’t ever find in any book but the Qaran :wink:

Can any Christian apologies retrace any copy of any of those script like that of the dead sea scroll since they are ancient folklore or any copy that revealed any of the chapters of the Qur’an.

plain and simple lies everything comes out of his mouth is lies,i have watched so many debate in youtube islam vs christianity plus islam vs and if thats the case these subject would of come up,and nearly every religion on earth is looking for a tiny little thing xo they can say jslam says this and islam says that.every religion knows by heart islam is the only true religion for man kind,coz what Allah said in the quran everything makes sence.even on youtube i saw a video nasa evidence that islam is a true religion,please do ur reaserch and find out ur self what is true and what is false,you can reaserch thrue sience or evidence coz what can be more important to us human then establishing the fact what is true and what is false,coz death is behind every living thing,and its important to follow all Allah’s or commandments!!!

Really good! Learning a lot. Thanks! Can’t wait to watch part 2!

HaHaHa… The Quran, ALLAH & MUHAMMAD isn’t worth a fat man’s fart… The QURAN has been copied from other sources, and that makes islam a TOTAL FRAUD… 1.5 BILLION PEOPLE BELIEVE IN A HEEP OF TRASH AND VOMIT…

Allah said he sent the book, the injeel to Jesus, his word full of truth and light. The word, injeel, is Greek for gospel. Why did allah send a Greek book to Jesus? Greek was not the language used in Judea until long after the crucifixion. Plus, if Arabic is the holy, pure language of the quran, created for islam, why does the quran contain so many foreign words, like Hebrew, Aramaic, Persian, Greek and Syriac? Couldn’t allah create those words in Arabic and are those foreign words in the sacred tablet?

bijzonder goed tony
