Is Quran the Word of God?2 Tim 3:16-17, "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."
Paul tells us in these verses about the Bible that it is "God breathed" or given by God Himself. Bible study notes say, "Part of the term translated "inspired" (pneustos, Gk.) is derived from pneuma (Gk.), meaning "spirit." Peter says how prophets of God received prophecy in 2nd Peter 1:21, "holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit." Paul further writes to Timothy why Scripture was given. He gives the reason that Scripture is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The bottom line is, 'Scripture is given to equip a person for every good work' and given by Holy Spirit or Spirit of God. Holy Spirit is holy and there is no sin in Him. So when we examine anything which people call word of God, should be examined whether it leads to holiness, good work, profitable for doctrine, for correction and useful for making a person godly.
Now let us look whether Quran fulfills these criteria or not?
1. Inspired by God or given by Holy Spirit?:
If you look at the life of Muhammad the founder of Islam, we see that he was willing to marry his adopted son's wife. So he got these words from Allah in
Surah 33:50, "O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee; and daughters of thy paternal uncles and aunts, and daughters of thy maternal uncles and aunts, who migrated (from Makka) with thee; and any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her;- this only for thee, and not for the Believers (at large); We know what We have appointed for them as to their wives and the captives whom their right hands possess;- in order that there should be no difficulty for thee. And Allah is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful."
In other words, marrying his adopted son's wife was made legal as we read in Surah 33:37. Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of Allah and thy favour: "Retain thou (in wedlock) thy wife, and fear Allah." But thou didst hide in thy heart that which Allah was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We joined her in marriage to thee: in order that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the Believers in (the matter of) marriage with the wives of their adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved with the necessary (formality) (their marriage) with them. And Allah.s command must be fulfilled.
So we can easily understand that Quran is not given by Holy Spirit and Quran is not inspired by God because the Bible tells us that God cannot tolerate any kind of sin, adultery, fornication and any kind of wrong doings. Bible is very clear about sin and its consequences. But through the above Surahs, Quran does not warn a sinner from committing sin. Instead Allah encourages sin with his words.
