Refuting answering-islam.com on Ijaz Al-Quran
« on: December 04, 2012, 08:52:15 AM »
Our muslim brothers made a very good article about The Miracle of Quran.
You can see it here: http://www.islamic-awareness.org/Quran/Miracle/ijaz.html

and as always the dumb answering-islam.com made a rebuttal to this article here:
http://www.answering-islam.org/Responses/Saifullah/ijaz.htm

So I need no more then refute these statements written by orientalists on Quran:

First claim to refute: Quotes provided by the "Islamic Awareness" team must also be placed in the context in which they were written. In this case, Beeston, Johnstone, Serjeant and Smith were quoting Mubarak's Nathr. The authors agree that the Qur'an is in a literary category of its own. However, on pages 196-197, they tell us:

Second claim to refute: The Qur'an is written throughout in rhyming prose (saj'), and appears therefore, to a greater or lesser extent, artistically constructed and strongly rhetorical in comparison with ordinary prose. The individual parts of a sentence, the sentence or combination of sentences which end with a rhyme and are called verses (ayah, plural ayat) follow the rhyme scheme a-a, b-b, c-c. The same rhyme is repeated not only once but as often as the author pleases, e.g. a-a-a, b-b, c-c-c-c (surah ci). Short surahs sometimes have only one rhyme. Ideally, as in the earliest surahs, the rhymes follow in rapid succession at fairly equal intervals; this also seems to have been the case with the rhymes of the ancient Arabic soothsayers. (Presumably the Prophet in fact adopted the alternation of short rhyme sequences from the practice of these soothsayers ...). In the surahs from the latter years of Muhammad's career the verses lengthen increasingly, and the rhymes no longer have the effect of rhetorically enlivening elements, but sound monotonous and often forced, as though they have been added later.

Third claim to refute: A large number of early pronouncements in the Qur'an are introduced by strange oaths, or rather asseverations, a stylistic device which Muhammad in all probability copied from the old Arabic soothsayers. page 198

Fourth claim to refute: In the earliest period of his preaching Mohammed's utterances were delivered in a sinewy oracular style cast into short rhymed phrases, often obscure and sometimes preceded by one or more formal oaths. This style is admittedly that of the ancient kahins or Arabian oracle-mongers, and it is not surprising that Mohammed's opponents should have charged him with being just another such kahin. For this and other reasons his style gradually loosened out into a simpler but still rhetorical prose; and as social denunciations and eschatological visions passed into historical narrative, and that in turn at Medina into legislation and topical addresses, little was left of its original stylistic features but a loose rhyme or assonance marking the end of each verse, now anything from ten to sixty words long. page (36)

Fifth claim to refute: vargo, Allah´s curse be on him! said this: he (Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.) did understand the power of words. Those who want to use aspects of eloquence as criteria for determining the spiritual validity and value of a text, should ponder these words of Muhammad:

Narrated Abdullah bin Umar:

Two men came from the East and addressed the people who wondered at their eloquent speeches On that Allah's Apostle said. "Some eloquent speech is as effective as magic." Bukhari Volume 7, Book 71, Number 662

As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

This link should insha'Allah silence the skeptics' and critics' doubts regarding the Glorious Quran's Miraculous Nature (Ijaz):  http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,618.0.html.

The Holy Quran's Miracle is within It.  And It is the 100% the verbatim Hoy Word of GOD Almighty, without any alterations or rephrasing by humans.  This is the Miraculous Nature of the Holy Book, and it is only unique to the Noble Quran.  No other book on earth posseses this Awesome and Divine Quality.

Take care akhi,
Osama Abdallah
