Prophet Muhammad's fallible Memory?
« on: August 20, 2016, 10:02:21 PM »
Hello brothers, I read an article that has been stuck in my head for a little

The article claims that the Quran was written by human because of differences in direct speech

For example

''Moses told his people '' Stay here and don't move, I will be back shortly''

''Moses told his people'' Stay here and do not move, I will be back very soon''

Now a lot of brothers get confused when I ask them for the refutation because they think the argument is that it's a contradiction. The argument is not that it's a contradiction, but that Musa AS can't have said both of them at the same time.


Here's example from the article

Account 1

20.10 Stay here; indeed, I have perceived a fire; perhaps I can bring you a torch or find at the fire some guidance

 Account 2

27.7 Indeed, I have perceived a fire. I will bring you from there information or will bring you a burning torch that you may warm yourselves
 Account 3

28.29 Stay here; indeed, I have perceived a fire. Perhaps I will bring you from there [some] information or burning wood from the fire that you may warm yourselves


Now, prophet Musa AS couldn't have said all of them at the same time, the wording is different. Here is the full article https://www.scribd.com/document/259937311/The-Quran-Muhammad-s-fallible-memory

I will be waiting for a refutation on this brothers, peace

Here is another example from the article


 
Allah told Moses to hide his hand and it will turn white

The next sign Allah demonstrated to Moses was to conceal his hand and then reveal it to discover it was white. We know what Allah meant by his words, but what were his words?

 Account 1

20.22 And draw in your hand to your side; it will come out white without disease - another sign

 Account 2

27.12 And put your hand into the opening of your garment [at the breast]; it will come out white without disease. [These are] among the nine signs [you will take] to Pharaoh and his people. Indeed, they have been a people defiantly disobedient

 Account 3

28.32 Insert your hand into the opening of your garment; it will come out white, without disease. And draw in your arm close to you [as prevention] from fear, for those are two proofs from your Lord to Pharaoh and his establishment. Indeed, they have been a people defiantly disobedient

again as you can see, differences in the direct speech

The claim is like saying all of the prophet's scribes were lazy to recheck and recopy the verses that they have written down so the speech will be identical in all the repeating stories.

Such allegation of man-made Quran is due to them believing the compilation of Quran is similar to the compilation of 26 Greek books by different authors. Hence having different in dialogues.

yes, another good argument i just realized is, how does he know it was all the same sentence and sentences didnt repeat?

James : My Cat ran away!
Thomas: What??
Yes, the cat ran away from the house

I just realized how weak his argument is
