COMPARING FIRST TWENTY VERSES FROM THE FIRST TWENTY CHAPTERS OF AL-QURAN & BIBLE
Some might think because I am a believer of Quran, so I might comment in favour of it, but they must not forget it is not matter of me being favour or not, it is matter of logic, fact, reality & truth. Therefore whichever books prove it contain more effective message for mankind on them selected verses, it deserve to be the Massage of GOD, Regardless anyone like it or not
To avoid wasting my time I have decided only to compare first verse of the first twenty chapters from them two books. And if the beginning verses are not good enough to be message of God, then why should I bother to expect rest will be, & why the massage of God should have any weakness, regardless its from the beginning or at the end ?
Please note since some chapter of Al-Quran start with special initial letters such as [Alif Lam Mim] & it’s beyond human understanding, therefore on that case, I used second verses. Moreover let us not forget them verses, which Al-Quran directly challenging all rejecters, I wonder does any other books give such challenges ?
THE CHALLENGES MADE BY AL-QURAN
The Quran 2:23
And if you (Arab pagans, Jews, and Christians) are in doubt concerning that which We have sent down (i.e. the Qur'an) to Our slave, then produce a Surah (chapter) of the like thereof and call your witnesses (supporters and helpers) besides Allah, if you are truthful.
The Quran 11:13
Or they say, "He forged it " Say: "Bring you then ten forged Surahs like unto it, and call whomsoever you can, other than Allah , if you speak the truth!"
The Quran 2:111
And they say, "None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian." These are their own desires. Say "produce your proof if you are truthful."
The Quran 4:82
Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein many a contradiction.
The Quran 10:37
And this Qur'an is not such as could ever be produced by other than Allah (Lord of the heavens and the earth), but it is a confirmation of (the revelation) which was before it , and a full explanation of the Book - wherein there is no doubt - from the Lord of the 'Alamin

I have only mention few from the huge collection of so-called (directly or indirectly) God’s books. the important thing is, does any of them books challenge its reader to find fault or contradiction within like the Al Quran ?
Also does anyone of them books pass the self reference test like Al-Quran ? (see uncountable miracle page)
I hardly find bible verses from them first twenty chapter which will benefit today’s mankind, that is because its mostly just talking about ancient story. While Al-Quran is issuing challenge, demanding it is the truth, it is the clear message without any crookedness, it’s also encouraging believers to have strong faith and mention some wisdom behind making treaty with enemy . And most of it, it’s repeatedly mentioning it is form Allah
While nowhere in them verse of the bible which claim that the bible is the book of God in fact I doubt there is any clear verse in entire bible where it indicate God himself is saying this bible is His book. And I will not be surprised if they added it on later version since the bible has so many updated version anyway, moreover anyone can claim, This or That is the book of God and they have to do that, and that’s because Allah say they write books with their own hand and say it is the book from God [see 2:79 ] otherwise this verse will be wrong if they stop making such claim.
The funniest thing is when I see name such as Mark, Matthew , John, Luke , Peter. I wonder why do they not have second /sir name, otherwise how do we know them character are real and did existed ?
Lastly I don’t have anything against the Bible or any other so-called books followers, I respect their belief, since everyone has rights to believe anything they wish. But I believe God has never send any books as written format on anything such as paper , not even Al-Quran. But Allah’s message is always written on human brain on every era / time and even today I don’t find any other book save Al-Quran which is written on human brain. Therefore to me Al-Quran is the only massage of God in today’s world [Allah Knows Best ]
