What does the Quran say about “God’s Word”? Surah 2:4 says, “[The righteous] trust what has been revealed to you [Mohammed] and to others before you, and firmly believe in the life to come.” What is meant by “what has been revealed . . . to others before you”? There are three separate writings mentioned in the Quran. Surah 5:43-14 alludes to one, “How will they come to you for judgment, when they already have the Torah which enshrines Allah’s own judgment? Soon after they are bound to ignore you: they are no true believers. There is guidance, and there is light, in the Torah which We have revealed.” Here we have the Torah, namely, the first five books by Moses that is viewed as the Word of God.

Surah 17:55 says, “Your Lord is best aware of all who dwell in heaven and earth. We have exalted some prophets above others. To David We gave the Psalms.” Surah 4:163 says, “We have revealed Our will to . . . Noah and to the prophets who came after him; . . . to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and . . . David, to whom We gave the Psalms.” We see Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, which are referred to in the Torah. We also see the Psalms and King David being referenced. Surah 5:46-47 says, “After those prophets We sent forth Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming the Torah already revealed, and gave him the Gospel, in which there are guidance and light, corroborating that which was revealed before it in the Torah, a guide and an admonition to the righteous. Therefore, let the followers of the Gospel judge in accordance with what Allah has revealed therein. Evil-doers are those that do not base their judgments on Allah’s revelations.” Thus, the Torah, the Psalms, and the Gospels are mentioned repeatedly as the Word of God in at least sixty-two verses in the 114 Surahs of the Quran. The Quran also teaches that these Bible books should be obeyed.

Mosaic Authorship HOW RELIABLE ARE THE GOSPELS

There is But One Book of Revelation

While it is appreciated that the Quran recognizes a number of Bible book as being the Word of God and that they should be obeyed, it should be noted that there are sixty-six Bible books, written by 40+ authors over a 1,600-year period that are the inspired, fully inerrant, authoritative Word of God. The real book of Revelation closes the biblical canon, and it says in the last chapter and the closing verses, “I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book.” (Rev. 22:18-19) On these verses, Kendell H. Easley writes, “The one who adds to the prophecy of this book or who takes words away from this book of prophecy is the one who hears and then deliberately distorts the message of Revelation. This is extraordinary evidence that John was aware that what he had written had scriptural authority. The apostle Paul had warned the Galatian Christians that those who deliberately “pervert the gospel of Christ” risk being “eternally condemned” (Gal. 1:7–8). Centuries earlier, Moses had warned similarly, “Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you” (Deut. 4:2). So now John notes that those who falsify Revelation face serious dangers. On one hand, the risk may be stated positively: God will add to him the plagues described in this book—those who add will be added unto themselves (chapters 15–16). On the other hand, the risk stated negatively is that God will take from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city—those who subtract will be subtracted from themselves (chapters 21–22) To tamper deliberately with the Word of God is a sign of unbelief, and is a dangerous matter indeed.”[1] The Quran is an additional revelation so claims Muhammad and 1.8 billion Muslims, which would be adding to the real book of Revelation. The book of Revelation by John and the rest of the New Testament give us guidance, direction up unto the time of Armageddon. We are told that we would receive new scrolls or books that will be opened during the millennial reign. Therefore, the Quran is not a part of some continued revelation. It is a false revelation.
