00:00:01--> 00:00:02

There may be many human beings

00:00:04--> 00:00:12

who may not be knowing or having a knowledge of the Quran or the Bible. So how can we decipher which of the two is right? Or who has copied from whom

00:00:13--> 00:00:38

the best test is the test of science. If we put these two scriptures to the test of science, we will know the difference of chalk and cheese. When we read superficially, we come to know that the Bible and the Quran are the same. But if we do our research, or we analyze it, we come to know that the difference of chalk and cheese will vary. The Bible is mentioned the first book of the Bible Book of Genesis chapter number one,

00:00:40--> 00:00:47

that Almighty God, he created the heavens and the earth in six days. And these six days or 24 days,

00:00:48--> 00:00:49

mentioned the Bible.

00:00:51--> 00:01:00

The Quran speaks about the creation of the universe, and says, Almighty God has created the heavens and the earth in six iams.

00:01:01--> 00:01:21

A yam is plural of yom one of the meaning of yom is a 24 hour day. But the other Arabic meaning of yom is a long period and import. Today, scientists they say that our universe was created in billions of years. So to say it was created in 625 days is wrong.

00:01:23--> 00:01:38

But the scientist I've got no objection with the Quran. When the Quran says that when the earth was created in six iams, that is six long periods without defining them to breasted ready for us.

00:01:39--> 00:01:53

Furthermore, mentioned the Bible, in the first book Book of Genesis, chapter number one was the material five, that Almighty God, he created the day and the night on the first day, and it created the light on the first day.

00:01:55--> 00:02:03

It later says in Genesis chapter number one, verse 14 to 19, the source of light, that is the stars and the sun, they were created on

00:02:04--> 00:02:41

the fourth day. Imagine the effect is greater on the first day, and the cause of the effect on the fourth day, the sun was created and the stars on the fourth day, and the light from the sun and the star was killed on the first day. It's illogical. How can they fake come before the source Quran to speaks about the creation of devil in the earth, but does not give this unscientific sequence. Further, we'll mention the first book of the Bible Book of Genesis, chapter number one was from nine to 13, that the Earth was created on the third day. And Genesis chapter number one was the 4019, that the sun and the moon was created on the fourth day.

00:02:43--> 00:02:52

We know from science, that the Earth and the Moon are the part of the parent body, that is the sun. So to say

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

that the Earth was created before the parent body, the sun is unscientific.

00:03:00--> 00:03:11

The Quran two speaks about creation of the heavens, the Sun, the Moon and the Earth, but it says it was killed simultaneously. Imagine, Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam copied from the Bible and he changed the sequence.

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

He says know what the

00:03:17--> 00:03:28

Bible for the says in the book of Genesis, step number one was from nine to 13 that Almighty God created the vegetables and the vegetations on the third day,

00:03:29--> 00:03:40

and then step number one was 1419. He created the sun on the fourth day. Scientifically, it's not possible that the vegetation can survive without sunlight.

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

It's totally unscientific.

00:03:44--> 00:03:46

Furthermore, the Bible says

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

in Genesis step number one

00:03:51--> 00:04:02

was number 16. That Almighty God created two great lights, the greater light the sun, through the day, and the lesser light the moon

00:04:03--> 00:04:09

through the night, the Bible says, the light of the sun, as well as the light of the moon is its own light.

00:04:12--> 00:04:28

The Bible says the light of the moon has its own light. But the Quran says in Surah Furqan, chapter number 25 verse number 61, the light of the moon is not its own light, it's the reflected light. So imagine the Prophet copied from the Bible and he made connections, not the old light, it is reflected light.

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

It's not humanly possible.

00:04:33--> 00:04:35

Only one who has this knowledge of Almighty God.

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

There are several examples we're going to give a talk only on this.

00:04:44--> 00:04:49

And I debate with William Campbell on the topic, the Quran and the Bible in the light of science.

00:04:51--> 00:04:58

And there I've mentioned many unscientific points mentioned the Bible. Time does not permit me to go into details.

00:05:01--> 00:05:13

The various unscientific things mentioned the Bible, which is not mentioned the Quran. For example, according to the Bible, Adam peace be upon him. He came into existence about 5800 years before.

00:05:14--> 00:05:21

science tells us that human beings came into existence millions of years before the Quran to speech brother Mr. Lamb, but does not give a date.

00:05:23--> 00:05:33

The Bible says in Genesis, chapter number six, seven, I will read about Noah and the flood, and it says that the full world was submerged underwater

00:05:35--> 00:05:41

at the time of Noah, that is approximately 21st 22nd century BC. Quran to speaks about newari salam,

00:05:43--> 00:05:44

but it does not give it a date.

00:05:45--> 00:06:06

It even speaks about the flood. But it says it was a localized flood only it flooded the oma the people of New LSL are not the full world. Today archaeological evidence shows us that the lemon dynasty of Egypt as well as the third dynasty of Babylon, they existed without interruption since the 21st 22nd century BC.

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

Psychological evidence is that what is mentioned in the Bible is totally wrong.

00:06:12--> 00:06:21

There are various examples we can give hundreds, time does not permit. So surely, this Quran has not been copied from the Bible needs that has been forged.

00:06:23--> 00:06:39

As mentioned the Iranian suicides the Japanese it was number one and two. It says that do they say he forced it? knee it is a truth from the Lord, so that he may give admonition to the people to whom no one has come in the past.

00:06:42--> 00:06:53

So surely, we can undoubtedly say that neither Prophet Muhammad peace be upon the author of the Quran. Neither DD copy or plagiarize are loaded from any other source.
