Islam declares that the bible is corrupt and full of falsehood! What parts of the bible and hadiths do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth? and Why?
The sections of this article are:
1- What parts of the bible do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth?
2- Which hadiths are really valid?

3- Some evidence proving that the previous "Scriptures" that existed in Arabia were different from Constantine's "Bible".
4- Missionary Traps for Muslims.
- Part 1: Faith and Works.
- In the Bible.

5- What is the best way to convert a Christian to Islam?


1- What parts of the bible do Muslims believe are closest to the Truth?
First of all, it is important to know that if the "Bibles" of today, with all their versions and differences in the quantity of their "books" and "gospels", were in fact the Original Holy Word of GOD Almighty, then there would be no need for the Noble Quran. But since they are corrupt, then we obviously can't consider them as GOD Almighty's Holy and Divine Words.
There existed many different Bibles during the time of the Roman Emperor, Constantine, which were widely believed in by different Christian sects in the year 312. In other words, during the first 3 centuries of "Christianity" (300 years), many different canons with 100s of books/gospels combined existed! that is a lot of canons, a lot of books/gospels, and a lot of time (300 years) of different Christian religions existed. Also, Constantine's own "unified canon or bible" got lost and only small portions of it were found! So What we have today from "Bible(s)" are not even Constantine's books.
Let us listen to the following AUDIO files from the "Banned from the Bible" documentary film by some popular historians, theologians and books' authors were the spokes people in this film. So, like I mentioned above, the information in the AUDIO files is very reliable, authentic and objective:
1- Constantine's unified "Bible" was permanently lost! Only portions of it were found almost 1/2 century later.
Theologians' voices are:
  1. John Dominic Crossan, Author, Excavating Jesus.
  2. Dr. Marvin Meyer, Author, The Gnostic Bible.
2- Hundreds of conflicting manuscripts existed among early Christians.
Theologians' voices are:
  1. Daniel Smith-Christopher, Ph.D., Hebrew bible Studies, Loyola Marymount University.
  2. Anthea D. Butler, Ph.D., Global Christianity, Loyala Marymount University.


Different and conflicting variations of "gospels" and "books" that are disagreed upon by the Churches today.

The Noble Quran came to confirm Truth that exists in the Manuscripts in the different canons and to filter out Truth from falsehood in them. Allah Almighty never claimed that the bible is fully and 100% Divine. Islam is a witness on the Bible. It filters out the truth from falsehood and corruption in the Bible. The Noble Quran only recognizes the bible as a HISTORY BOOK with errors and man's alteration in it. Anything that agrees 100% with Islam is valid, and anything else that has even the slightest disagreement with Islam is discarded:
"Those who follow the apostle, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures),- in the law and the Gospel;- for he commands them What is just and forbids them What is evil; he allows them as lawful What is good (and pure) and prohibits them from What is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper. (The Noble Quran, 7:157)"
"It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming What went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment be tween right and wrong). (The Noble Quran, 3:3)"
"To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by What God hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If God had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in What He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to God; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute; (The Noble Quran, 5:48)"
"That which We have revealed to thee of the Book is the Truth,- confirming What was (revealed) before it: for God is assuredly- with respect to His Servants - well acquainted and Fully Observant. (The Noble Quran, 35:31)"
That is why we Muslims believe in only the parts of the bible that agree with the Noble Quran. The parts that contradict the Noble Quran are not the Truth:
"That they rejected Faith; that they uttered against Mary A grave false charge; that they said (in boast): 'We killed Christ Jesus The son of Mary, The Messenger of Allah.' But they killed him not, Nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not. Nay, Allah raised him up Unto Himself; and Allah Is Exalted in Power, Wise. And there is none of the people of the book (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (Jesus) Before his death; And on the Day of Judgment He (Jesus) will be a witness Against them. (The Noble Quran, 4:156-159)"
Allah Almighty here declares that Christianity is no more than a man-made conjecture. And conjecture is forbidden in the Glorious Quran.

Conjecture is forbidden in the Glorious Quran: "But they have no knowledge therein. They follow nothing but conjecture; and conjecture avails nothing against Truth. (The Noble Quran, 53:28)"
"And there are among them illiterates, who know not the Book, but (see therein their own) desires, and they do nothing but conjecture. (The Noble Quran, 2:78)"
"Wert thou to follow the common run of those on earth, they will lead thee away from the way of God. They follow nothing but conjecture: they do nothing but lie. (The Noble Quran, 6:116)"
"Those who give partners (to God) will say: "If God had wished, we should not have given partners to Him nor would our fathers; nor should we have had any taboos." So did their ancestors argue falsely, until they tasted of Our wrath. Say: "Have ye any (certain) knowledge? If so, produce it before us. Ye follow nothing but conjecture: ye do nothing but lie." (The Noble Quran, 6:148)"
"And they say: "What is there but our life in this world? We shall die and we live, and nothing but time can destroy us." But of that they have no knowledge: they merely conjecture: (The Noble Quran, 45:24)"
"These are nothing but names which ye have devised,- ye and your fathers,- for which God has sent down no authority (whatever). They follow nothing but conjecture and What their own souls desire!- Even though there has already come to them Guidance from their Lord! (The Noble Quran, 53:23)"


"Know they not Allah Knoweth What they conceal and What they reveal? And there are among them illiterates, who know not the Book, but (see therein their own) desires, and they do nothing but conjecture. Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: 'This is from Allah,' To traffic with it for a miserable price! Woe to them for What their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby. (The Noble Quran, 2:77-79)"
"O Apostle! let not those grieve thee, who race each other into unbelief: (whether it be) among those who say "We believe" with their lips but whose hearts have no faith; or it be among the Jews,- men who will listen to any lie,- will listen even to others who have never so much as come to thee. They change the words from their (right) times and places: they say, 'If ye are given this, take it, but if not, beware!' If any one's trial is intended by God, thou hast no authority in the least for him against God. For such - it is not God's will to purify their hearts. For them there is disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter a heavy punishment. (The Noble Quran, 5:41)"
"But because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words from their (right) places and forget a good part of the message that was sent them, nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few - ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for God loveth those who are kind. (The Noble Quran, 5:13)"
"Say: 'O People of the Book (i.e., Jews and Christians)! Come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.' If then they turn back, say ye: 'Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah's Will).' (The Noble Quran, 3:64)"
Narrated Ubaidullah: "Ibn 'Abbas said, "Why do you ask the people of the scripture about anything while your Book (Quran) which has been revealed to Allah's Apostle is newer and the latest? You read it pure, undistorted and unchanged, and Allah has told you that the people of the scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said, 'It is from Allah,' to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have never seen any man from them asking you regarding What has been revealed to you!" (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Holding Fast to the Qur'an and Sunnah, Volume 9, Book 92, Number 461)"

What is the best way to convert a Christian to Islam?


2- Which hadiths are really valid?

Before we start, I'd like to bring to your attention the following article:

Problems with many of Al-Tabari's narrations (the first collection of Hadiths) according to Al-Tabari himself!
By the way, the "satanic verses" topic in the link had been further debunked at:
http://www.answering-christianity.co...nic_verses.htm
Ironically, it was Jesus who 'suffered' from satan according to the bible itself!

As to which hadiths are valid, please visit: The Islamic beliefs that I embrace, and the "Islamic" beliefs that I condemn!
Also, please visit: The Hadith Vs. The Gospels, and Part II.


3- Some evidence proving that the previous "Scriptures" that existed in Arabia were different from Constantine's "Bible":
Again, one can easily see the many canons that existed among the early Christians at:
Different and conflicting variations of "gospels" and "books" that are disagreed upon by the Churches today.
The fact that Arabia was never part Rome's empire, and the fact that Jews and Christians existed among the Arabs in the city of Medina before and after Islam, and the fact that early Christians had many canons that were conflicting with each others proves the following:
1- It is quite possible and very highly probable that the early Christians who had the Scriptures that agreed with Islam's claims, such as Jesus never got crucified and a Prophet was going to come after Jesus, fled to Arabia due to the fear that the new Trinitarian Emperor, Constantine, would persecute them as the Jews suffered in the past before Jesus' birth from the same Romans.
2- The Scriptures that the Jews and Christians possessed during Prophet Muhammad's days in Medina were not just limited to the Constantine's Bible, especially that the Arabs, like I mentioned, were never under Rome's rulership.
Therefore, those from among the Christians today who claim that Islam "confirms" the Bible's divinity (even though the Bible is notorious in having countless contradictions and historical errors) are miserably wrong. Not only that, but their insistence on using Islam's Noble Quran to somehow demonstrate to the Muslims that their corrupt book does not contain errors only shows and demonstrates their desperate position to win a faulty argument.
In other words, they have to rely on lies and deception, along with awkward logic to prove their corrupt script to answer way any contradiction or historical error that a Muslim might present to them.


4- Missionary Traps for Muslims:
By Macksood Aftab
Managing Editor of The Islamic Herald
The Islamic Herald, April 1996
Part 1: Faith and Works
One of the basic arguments raised by non-Muslims, especially Christians, against Islam concerns the concept of salvation. They say that in Christianity, one is saved by faith, whereas in Islam one must earn their salvation through good deeds. Unfortunately, many Muslims fall into the trap of defending the position imposed on them by these non-Muslims. This then provides the Christians with a basis for their entire Jesus-Father-Crucifixion-Salvation framework. They then go on to argue that salvation is a gift from God that cannot be earned. But if the true Islamic concept is made clear, the Christian has no basis to attack Islam.
Many times, Muslims fail to realize that the Islamic concept of salvation is not based upon good deeds, but is based primarily upon faith. In the dozens of times Allah Almighty talks in the Quran about salvation, he always states, "Those who believe and do good deeds." Belief is always mentioned before deeds or works. When one converts to Islam, one does not do it by doing some good work but rather through realizing and believing that there is but one God and Muhammad is his last messenger. Non-Muslims may perform good works as well, but What sets them apart from Muslims is their lack of iman, or belief. The reason that the good works of the non-believers are worthless in the hereafter is because of their disbelief. Unless a person's iman or aqeedah is not correct, all his good deeds are worthless. One of the more popular hadiths of the Prophet (peace be upon him) states, "All actions are based upon intentions," implying that the purpose, intent, or iman behind your action is What you get rewarded for; the actual action is really a consequence of the belief.
Another hadith (saying from Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him) states, "A man came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and asked, 'When will the day of judgment come?' The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied, 'What have you prepared for the judgment day that you are so concerned for it?' He replied, 'I do not have any good deeds in my account, but I do have one thing: I love Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him).' The Prophet (peace be upon him) then said, 'In that case, do not worry; you will be with those whom you love.'" (Agreed Upon). This saying from Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him also confirms the Islamic position of placing aqeedah (faith) and belief before actions. For example, Allah Almighty says in various parts of the Quran, "The believers you will find praying..." He does not say the people who are praying are believers. It is the belief that brings about the action, but the converse is not always true. Another hadith (saying) of the Prophet (peace be upon him) states, "Unless one loves Allah and Allah's Messenger more than one's own self his iman is not complete."

Part 2: The Bible
Another misunderstanding Muslims often fall into concerns the Bible. Christian missionaries in almost every discussion of the Quran assert that the Quran asks Muslims to believe in the bible as a revelation of God. Many Muslims tend to fall into this trap by saying that "we believe in the bible as revealed book."Once the Muslim accepts this fact, the evangelist can point out that the bible contradicts the Quran and that since the bible has precedence over the Quran and since Muslims are required to believe in it, it therefore logically follows that the bible is right and the Quran is wrong. But the Quran says no such thing.
There is no reference to the bible in the Quran whatsoever. The Quran mentions the Taurat (Old Testament) and the Injil (New Testament). The Taurat is the book given to prophet Moses. This the equivalent of the Torah/Pentateuch of the Jews and Christians, since much of it was not written by prophet Moses. And the Taurat is definitely not the Old Testament since the OT includes dozens of books attributed to other prophets before Jesus. The Injil is translated as the Gospel revealed to prophet Jesus. This is not the New Testament.
The New Testament is a collection of 4 biographies of Christ, 27 epistles of St. Paul, and other books on the lives and adventures on the followers of Christ. There is no record of a book revealed to Jesus. Perhaps the closest to it are the words of Jesus himself, which constitutes less than 10% of the NT. Therefore to say that Christians changed the bible is an inaccurate statement, and can cause trouble in a discussion, because the Christian can then ask questions such as: Who changed the Bible? When exactly was it changed? How do you know it was changed if you don't have a copy of the original? The Bible, or at least the New Testament, cannot be an altered copy of the Injil because it is a completely different book.
In fact, the original bible or New Testament (the very first one) did not correspond to the Injil, Taurat, or Zabur in the first place. It doesn't matter how unreliably it was transmitted; the bible does not correspond to the Quranic Injil.
It is not that the Christians have changed the original, but rather they have the wrong book, altogether. The words of Christ are possibly the closest thing to the Injil, but if some of them don't agree with the Noble Quran, then we don't take them. The recently discovered Gospel of Thomas, which is nothing but a list of sayings of Jesus, is even closer to the Islamic concept of Injil. Therefore, it should be kept in mind in discussion with Christians that the bible has not been changed, but rather the original documents chosen as the word of God were incorrect.
