Such claims imply that the Quran expresses its contents and themes in the clearest manner, and that it contains no grammatical ambiguities. In fact, Muslims will argue that the Quran is considered the standard for Arabic grammar. Moreover, this claim suggests that whenever the Quran makes a...

    Muslims often claim that the Quran has been perfectly preserved, and that this is proof of its divine origin. However, when we examine Islam's most trusted sources, we find that entire chapters of the Quran were forgotten, large passages were lost, and individual verses were eaten by a sheep.

    According to the Quran (7:157), Jews and Christians find Muhammad mentioned in the Torah and the Gospel.

But what happens when we read these passages in context? In the latest episode of "Countering Muslim Claims," former Muslim Al Fadi an...
