Assalamualykum.


 Brother some anti-Islamists like to claim that adding vowel mark has changed the Quran. Besides they claim that a language undergoes changes with the change of time. They ask, how did how did Hajjaj Bin Yusuf who came many many years after Muhammad (SAW), Hazrat Abu Bakr, Hazrat Umar, Hazrat Uthman and Hazrat Ali ,know where to put the vowel marks? They say at first Quran didn't make any sense, so to give it a meaning the early Muslims added vowel marks. Below are their claims:


1.  A simple definition of language is.  How we communicate information to others. 
2.  Eternal medium for this transfer of information is by sound symbols.  This is called speech.
3.  Since, sound dies as soon as it is uttered from speakers.  It could not be preserved until modern times, unless it was preserved in the form of script.   Hence, Language, meanings and script are very interdependent.
4.  Furthermore, languages change overtime.  All aspect of language that is, Lexical (meanings/concepts associated with words), grammar, phonology, semantics and syntax, all of these.
5.  Hence, in the face of changing landscape, preservation in the form of script is/was very important and related.



 They say that the vowel marks can be put anywhere according to its necessity to give a word a meaning.

So, How do we answer these anti-Islamists to shut their mouth once and for all?

Assalamualykum if this were true then their would be hundreds of thousands of different modes of recitation and Muslims would constantly battle over the correct recitation... Watch the video by nouman Ali khan on the preservation of the Qur'an...
Lol the fact that they have stooped so low shows that they have realized they can't prove the Qur'an has been changed...
Wowww it is unbelievable how much the Christian missionaries like to twist the words of others, the reason they added vowel markings is because non Arabs had problems reading the Qur'an. For an Arab they had no problem reading the Qur'an.
Brother I would strongly recommend reading "The History of the Quranic Text, 2nd Edition by M.M. Azami..
This book will answer all your doubts about the qurans preservation

Brother, can you please send me the link of any article or online book refuting this claim?

And, as I don't have knowledge about "Language" I want to ask another thing,


 Does the meaning of the different words undergo changes with the change of time?

as for the meanings of words changing, the reason we have lexicons such as lisan al Arab is to prevent such changing in meanings. Brother Osama can elaborate on this issue.

Also brother you should realize that Christian missionaries constantly come up with ridiculous theories to try and disprove the Qur'an. Most of the time their claims are baseless and should be laughed at
Peace!(:
