Why Do Muslims Always Quote The Bible But Christians Never Quote The Quran by frosbel(m): 2:46pm On Jan 12, 2012
In all my years of debating Muslims worldwide, I have never seen any other set of religious people who use the Bible so unashamedly to justify their religion and in many cases support the validity of Prophet Muhammad.

Why do Christians not use the Quran to validate Jesus or any prophet for that matter.

Is the Quran incomplete hence it's constant and sometimes almost berserkly desperate reference to the Bible ?

please help me , somebody.

Of course!

If you're in doubt pls ask a muslim to explain the Abrahamic sacrifice that is an islamic rite today WITHOUT recourse to the bible.
Or second, ask a muslim to describe Ishmael SOLELY from the pages of the quran.

Appears that this is almost an impossible thing to from an Islamic perspective. From my experience the bible appears to used more widely than the Quran to justify Ishmael's authenticity.

Maybe tbaba1234 can help us , I wait in hope.

First lets set the record straight, the Muslim only quotes the bible when debating with a christian or a jew, otherwise muslims have no need of the bible. The theology, Laws and precepts of Islam are all set out in the Glorious Qur'an, hadiths and Books of Islamic jurisprudence. Islamic Law is absolutely complete without recourse to the bible.

IMO, Muslims quote the bible during debates with christians because obviously the christian does not beleive in the Qur'an.
Also, the bible is riddled with so many internal contradictions there by providing the muslim with ample ammunition to confront the christian

this is a puerile excuse. Even when a christian needs to debate a muslim, he doesnt need the quran to defend Jesus. Why is a muslim constantly ferreting in the bible for mohammad?
Re: Why Do Muslims Always Quote The Bible But Christians Never Quote The Quran by goggs(m): 8:50pm On Jan 12, 2012
If the Bible is corrupt, why use it? You shouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. its amazing too a lot of Muslims know more about the "flaws" in the Bible than Christians know anything about the Koran.

Most Christians don't bother to go out of their way to seek faults. They just wanna get on with their lives.

I also notice the paranoid feelings in the Muslims world especially in the middle eas about evangelizing to the extent that it attracts severe penalties. There are rumours about evangelizing ranging from converts being paid, to being smuggled out of the country for conversion. Hence apart from injunctions forbidding apostasy, some Muslims are hostile to evangelism. However, a convert to Islam is highly celebrated like a captured trophy.

Anyway I've seen many christian quote quoran. Especially former Muslims . One of them who is now a pastor even said that there's enough information in the Quran to convert a Muslim to Christianity . He said many Muslims don't know quoran well.

We provide Quotes of the Koran to prove that it is a book of contradictions. However we do not use the Koran to validate the authenticity of Jesus Christ or the prophets or Christianity as a religion for that matter.

Yet, Muslims call the Bible corrupted, how they still manage to find verses in this corrupted book , in the hundreds by the way , to try and justify ISLAM and Muhammad especially is amazing, bewilderingly so.

So i decided to go into the quran itself and dig up the story . . .

Quran 37:99 And he said: Lo! I am going unto my Lord Who will guide me.
37:100 My Lord! Vouchsafe me of the righteous.
37:101 So We gave him tidings of a gentle son.
37:102 And when (his son) was old enough to walk with him, (Abraham) said: O my dear son, I have seen in a dream that I must sacrifice thee. So look, what thinkest thou ? He said: O my father! Do that which thou art commanded. Allah willing, thou shalt find me of the steadfast.
37:103 Then, when they had both surrendered (to Allah), and he had flung him down upon his face,
37:104 We called unto him: O Abraham!
37:105 Thou hast already fulfilled the vision. Lo! thus do We reward the good.
37:106 Lo! that verily was a clear test.
37:107 Then We ransomed him with a tremendous victim.
37:108 And We left for him among the later folk (the salutation):
37:109 Peace be unto Abraham!


This fails to answer the KEY question . . . what was the essence of this test? The idea of a human sacrifice occurs in the quran JUST THIS ONCE . . . WHY? What was the purpose of this "test"? Does Allah simply wake up and dream up odd tests for his prophets? What is the religious significance of a "ransom" in islam?

Re: Why Do Muslims Always Quote The Bible But Christians Never Quote The Quran by Judek2(m): 1:34am On Jan 13, 2012
The Koran only summarises the Bible stories.
Its like WAEC KEY point which summarises a whole Text book.
The difference is that the KEY POINT contains main facts but the KORAN contains alleged claims.

Reading any story only from the Koran,you can never find the source,the theme and the reason, it just starts and ends. Mainly in arguements and vague conclution that leaves the reader thinking, "What is this talking about?"
example, the story of David and Golliath.
Golliath was challanging the Isrealites,David just came out of nowhere and killed Golliath. You will ask,"Who da hell is David? Who da hell is Golliath? How was the Golliath killed? Where da faack is Golliath from?. Whats this few tales talking about?.
But a simple check from the Bible will explain everything.

Its only in the Bible that you will find the Origin, the generation and even with detailed names of all generations of the Person talked about,even to the future generation,as the Bible usually states "Till this Day".
His life, wife and Children,Events by Events, thats why Bible proves many historical events and monuments still standing today.

The Koran can only drive you to the Bible to understand the whole gist, and to even know the existence of the person and the motives and lessons of the Story. .

Holy Quran 37:99-113
"Abraham said: “I am going to my Lord; He will guide me. Lord, grant me a righteous son.” (In response to this prayer) We gave him the good news of a prudent boy; and when he was old enough to go about and work with him, (one day) Abraham said to him: “My son, I see in my dream that I am slaughtering you. So consider (and tell me) what you think.” He said: “Do as you are bidden. You will find me, if Allah so wills, among the steadfast.” When both surrendered (to Allah’s command) and Abraham flung the son down on his forehead, We cried out: “O Abraham, you have indeed fulfilled your dream. Thus do We reward the good-doers.” This was indeed a plain trial. And We ransomed him with a mighty sacrifice, and We preserved for him a good name among posterity. Peace be upon Abraham. Thus do We reward the good-doers. Surely he was one of Our believing servants. And We gave him the good news of Isaac, a Prophet and among the righteous ones. And We blessed him and Isaac. Among the offspring of the two some did good and some plainly wronged themselves".

Re: Why Do Muslims Always Quote The Bible But Christians Never Quote The Quran by brentkruge: 10:41am On Jan 13, 2012
The Quran can never be understood on its own!

Imagine the Quran without other religious texts (In reality there will be no Quran really but lets assume), It will be the most confusing book on earth! No rhyme or reason, people appear from nowhere, things happen abruptly, chapters placed confusingly! Muslims have therefore developed the Hadith to help untangle the maze. But still its like a gordon knot

So many historical inaccuracies for example Quran mistakes Jesus’ mother Mary for Moses’ sister Mariam, But Aaron, the brother of Moses, lived and died centuries before Mary, the mother of Jesus was born; and Aaron’s sister was Miriam, not Mary. There is a time gap of more than 12 centuries between Jesus’ mother Mary and Moses’ sister Miriam. Other mistakes such as the earth is flat, the sun sets in a muddy pool etc. Just google these and tons more come up.

The Quran is not arranged logically. The part where Muhammad receives his revelation is smack in the middle (Sura 96 or something). The logical thing is to have it arranged chronologically. The reader is left to sort it out! This is why ordinary Muslims cannot read the book on their own and reach conclusions on their destinies. They depend on Mallams who tell them what they (Mallams) want them to hear; a violent Mallam tells his student the violent portions (they turn out to be Boko Harams etc) and the moderate ones teach them the moderate verses (they turn out respectable members of the society). That is why moderates feel hurt, angry and confused when confronted with the violent verses and contradictions, while the violent ones see the moderates as weak and adulterated Muslims. Of course the radicals ones say questioning the Quran is forbidden cos its akin to challenging the authority of the Prophet. Anyone who does that deserves to be dispatched to the great beyond.


How can anybody quote the Quran but Muslims? The book is just unreliable.

you wanted to know who was sacrificed.so the verses i presented present a sequence of events in Abraham's (as) life and him begetting two sons.

other verses tell us too he was the son of Abraham and he was righteous and a prophet. me too i would like to know how to prepare Sushi.does the bible teach you that?

the essence of the test is recorded to in the Quran.the religious significance of a "sacrifice" is devotion.

"This was indeed a plain trial".(Quran 37)

for more on the "ransom" and who it was,read the commentary of Ayatollah Mehdi Pooya:


In verse 107 the sacrifice with which Ismail was ransomed is described as great by Allah, therefore it must be great in absolute degree. An ordinary ram by no means, in any sense whatsoever, can be termed as great; moreover under no circumstances a ram can be greater than Ismail son of Ibrahim, both the most distinguished prophets of Allah, in whose progeny Allah had appointed His divinely commissioned Imams (see commentary of Baqarah : 124). The ransom, therefore, is essentially a great sacrifice Allah had kept in store for future when the religion of Allah would be perfected and completed after the advent of the Holy Prophet.

It was indeed a great and momentous occasion when two men of God stood ready to offer to Allah that which was dearest to them to seek His pleasure, then Allah puts off this great manifestation of "devotion and surrender to His will" which was the real purpose of the trial (not blood and flesh) to a future date, so that the "devotion and surrender to Allah's will" should be demonstrated in a greater style and degree than what Ibrahim and Ismail could. This type of service Imam Husayn performed, many ages later, in 60 A.H., and as he was a descendant of Ibrahim and Ismail the credit of "the great sacrifice" goes to them also. For the great sacrifice of Imam Husayn read the biography of Imam Husayn published by our Trust, a close study of which makes clear that his sacrifice has been rightly mentioned as dhibhin azim in this verse.

Aqa Mahdi Puya says:

Shah Wali-ullah, in Sirrush Shahadaytan, and many other well known authors of traditions and history have accepted the fact that dhibhin azim refers to the sacrifice of Imam Husayn. See also my note in the commentary of verses 83 to 113.

The reader is left to sort it out! This is why ordinary Muslims cannot read the book on their own and reach conclusions on their destinies. They depend on Mallams who tell them what they (Mallams) want them to hear; a violent Mallam tells his student the violent portions (they turn out to be Boko Harams etc) and the moderate ones teach them the moderate verses (they turn out respectable members of the society). That is why moderates feel hurt, angry and confused when confronted with the violent verses and contradictions, while the violent ones see the moderates as weak and adulterated Muslims. Of course the radicals ones say questioning the Quran is forbidden cos its akin to challenging the authority of the Prophet. Anyone who does that deserves to be dispatched to the great beyond.
the Quran is for all times.so therefore it is not a story book like the bible where it starts with "in the begining"!


How can anybody quote the Quran but Muslims? The book is just unreliable.

but you said muslims dont understand it.how come we do?

go and ie!thats what haters always do!!!

mumu! as if christians dont have bible commentary.but anyways let me answer you:

Davidylan asked for the "significance of ransom" in Islam.so he got the answer from an Islamic scholar.

Yes oh! there are commentaries for the Bible for people going to theological schools etc BUT who has quoted them here?

its because the Bible is very clear on its own ( I have not had cause to use them in replying you and I have not seen ANYBODY who has)

When Muslims quote the Bible DO THEY QUOTE COMMENTARIES? BUT when other scholars examine the Quran, it has to be with the Hadith to understand the situation,

Have you ever heard that Christians quote commentaries or accounts of the life of Jesus (eg as in ur Hadith) on matters of faith? Because there is no need.

The BIBLE is STAND ALONE cool

Why not from YOU?

Its like me quoting Pastors Adeboye or Oyedepo to respond to your enquiries on the Bible? That would be silly really.

Typical of you, when cornered you:

(a) Say some one else did it
(b) Say "the Bible has contradictions too" (then refer to threads where, unfortunately for you, you also being hammered for your folly)
(c) make fresh baseless allegations
(d) change the topic, and finally, my favourite
(e) Explode in insults  grin

From your last post (exploding in frustration), its obvious you have been shown your folly  grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin

^Is the Bible the life of Jesus? Why then is the life so disjointed especially the varied narratives of the same incident by the gospel writers? I see why there is no Gospel of Jesus and surprisingly, Jesus was never called Immanuel.

The reason hadith/sunnah, commentaries must be used to explain the huge information carried by verses of the Quran is the same reason there was the Another Comforter. I opened a thread on that already.You are welcome to contribute without being off topic.

Muslims quote the Bibles to point out to you where you are wrong about God, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers/Prophets, etc.

We do not quote the Bible among ourselves because the Quran is Sufficient with the Hadith and Sunnah making it clear and very easy to follow.

how odd. If the life of Christ in the bible is "disjointed" then how come muslims would rather quote the bible than the quran to explain the life of Jesus? Jesus was never called Immanuel? How dumb . . . do people call you by your middle name all day?

No, like brentkruge said, you quote the hadiths because without it the quran is basically unintelligible.

you skull is too thick to understand it.
Holy Quran 3:7
It is He who has sent down to you, [O Muhammad], the Book; in it are verses [that are] precise - they are the foundation of the Book - and others unspecific. As for those in whose hearts is deviation [from truth], they will follow that of it which is unspecific, seeking discord and seeking an interpretation [suitable to them]. And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah . But those firm in knowledge say, "We believe in it. All [of it] is from our Lord." And no one will be reminded except those of understanding.
