ABROGATION! A big lie?

Abrogation of verses of the Qoran!!!  A big contradiction . A big excuse . A big lie. A big blasphemy.

There is no abrogation to GOD s words? Only bad understanding that leads to bad translation. Woe to them for inventing such a lie?

This concept invented originally by scholars, claims that there are some verses in the Qoran that have been abrogated and invalidated by other verses!

The verse that is the abrogator they call (Al-Nasekh) while the abrogated verse they call (Al-Mansoukh).

These scholars have come up with hundreds of cases of abrogated verses to the extent that they have formulated a whole science of the subject filling lengthy books and references.

Although the concept was originally invented by Muslim scholars as a result of their poor understanding of the Qoran, yet it has been widely exploited by non-Muslim writers to tarnish the perfection and divinity of the book.

{11:1] A.L.R. This is a book whose verses have been perfected.

Although God asserts that the Qoran is perfect and harbours no contradictions, yet sadly these scholars have invented the greatest lie about the Qoran, claiming that there are verses in the Qoran that abrogate and invalidate other verses.

They base their claim on a corrupted interpretation of two verses:

FIRST VERSE 2:106

[Qoran 2:106] Whichever Ayah We relinquish or cause to be forgotten We replace it with its equal or with that which is greater, did you not know that God is capable of all things?”

What the interpreters claim is that this verse confirms that some Quranic verses are invalidated by others. They interpret ‘Ayah’ in this verse to mean a verse in the Quran.

However the word Ayah, as used in the Qoran, can have one of four different meanings:
1. It could mean a miracle from God as in:

[Qoran 17:101] And We supported Moses with nine profound Ayah’s (miracles).

2. It could also mean an example for people to take heed from as in:

[Qoran 25:37] And the folk of Noah, when they disbelieved the messengers, We have drowned them and set an Ayah (example) of them for all people.

3. The word ‘Ayah can also mean a sign as in:

[Qoran 19:10] He said, ‘My Lord, give me an ‘Ayah’ (sign).’ He said, ‘Your Ayah is that you will not speak to people for three consecutive nights.

4. It could mean a verse in the Quran, as in:

[Qoran 38:29] This is a book that We have sent down to you that is sacred, perhaps they will reflect on its ‘Ayat’ (verses).”

Now if we consider verse 106 of Sura 2, we can easily spot that the word ‘Ayah’ in this particular verse could not mean a verse in the Quran. It can mean any of the other meanings (miracle, example or sign) but not a verse in the Quran. This is because of the following reasons:
1. The words “cause to be forgotten” could not be applicable if the word ‘Ayah’ in this verse meant a verse in the Quran. How can a verse in the Quran become forgotten? For even if the verse was invalidated by another (as the interpreters falsely claim) it will still be part of the Quran and thus could never be forgotten.
2. The words “We replace it with its equal” would be meaningless if the word ‘Ayah’ in this verse meant a Quranic verse, simply because it would make no sense for God to invalidate one verse then replace it with one that is identical to it!
3. If the word ‘Ayah’ in verse 106 meant a miracle an example or a sign, then all the words of the verse would make perfect sense. The words “cause to be forgotten” can apply to all three meanings and that is what actually happens with the passing of time. The miracles of Moses and Jesus have long been forgotten. We only believe in them because they are mentioned in the Quran.

Similarly the words “We replace with its equal  or with that which is greater” is in line with the miracles of God. God indeed replaces one miracle with its equal or with one that is greater than it. Consider the following verse :

[Qoran 43:46-48] And We have sent Moses with Our Ayah’s (miracles or signs) to Pharaoh and his elders proclaiming : ‘I am a messenger from the Lord of the universe’. When he brought them our Ayah’s they laughed at him. Every Ayah We showed them was greater than the one that preceded it.” 43:46-48

SECOND VERSE 16:10

[Qoran 16:101] When We substitute one Ayat (revelation) in place of another, and God is fully aware of what He reveals, they say, ‘You made this up’. Indeed most of them do not know”

The substitution spoken of here is concerned with one of two things:
1. The substitution of one Scripture in place of another.
2. The substitution of one verse or law within a Scripture with another in a subsequent Scripture

The first meaning is given evidence to in the following verse:

[Qoran 5:48] Then we revealed to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming previous scriptures, and superseding them.

Here, the words “superseding them.” confirm that the previous scripture were substituted with the Qoran.

The second meaning is also given evidence to in the Qoran where various issues that were prohibited to the previous people of the book were made lawful in the Qoran.

As an example, we are told in 2:187 that sexual intercourse between married couples during the nights of the fasting month was made lawful, while it was prohibited previously.

We are also told in 6:146 that God prohibited for the Jews all animals with undivided hoofs; and of the cattle and sheep the fat was prohibited. These were made lawful in the Qoran.

This verse 16:101 does not speak about the substitution of one verse in the Qoran with another. 
The evidence to that is given within the same verse (16:101): The key to the meaning of the verse lies in the words:

“……..they say, ‘You made this up”

Here we must stop and ask, who is likely to tell the messenger “You made this up” ? and why? For sure it cannot be his followers, his followers are not likely to tell him

“You have made it up”…………….it has to be those who do not believe in him, which focuses on the followers of previous scripture who feared that their scripture was in danger of being “substituted” with the Qoran…………

What more evidence to that more than the fact that till this day, the Jews and Christians accuse Muhammad that he fabricated the Qoran himself! If this accusation is from the Jews and Christians we must then ask, are they accusing Muhammad of substituting one verse in the Qoran with another? The Jews and Christians do not care if one verse in the Qoran is substituted for another, after all they do not believe in the whole book…………. they will not complain that one verse in the Qoran is being substituted with another! However, and if their Scripture is being substituted by the Qoran, they will immediately accuse the messenger that the Scripture he brings (Qoran) is not from God but that he “made it up” himself.

These glorious words “You have made it up” indeed stand as true indicator from God Almighty that the substitution spoken of in this verse is not related to one within the Qoran, but indeed a substitution between two scripture.

As mentioned before, the substitution of the previous scripture with the Qoran is confirmed in 5:48

As a result of the corruption of the meaning of 2:106 and 16:101, and the claim that some Qoranic verses  invalidate other verses, the interpreters have demonstrated their failure to uphold two main characteristics of the Qoran, those being that the Qoran is perfect and harbours no contradictions (11:1) and also that the words of God are unchangeable (10:64).

It is well worth inquiring here into the motive behind the interpreters corruption of the meaning of 2:106 and 16:101. Hadith is the main culprit. Actually hadith is behind all the misunderstanding, contradictions and corruption of GOD s words.

Qoran is without contradiction, without nonsense,without faults. The words of GOD are perfect.

GOD bless .
