Had Muslims Lost Some Parts of the Qur’an?

It should be clear that the Qur’an is the pure word of Allah. Not one word therein is not divine. Not a single word has been deleted from its text. The Book has been handed down to our age in its complete and original form since the time of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.

Sheik Yusuf Estes, Director of islamtomorrow.com, and National Chaplain WAMY, states: “First of all, the solid evidence of the Glorious Qur’an is the Glorious Qur’an itself. It does exist today in the original form. Please understand that the Qur’an is 100% preserved in the hearts of millions of Muslims all over the world. There is no doubt that all the Muslims in every country recite exactly the same words for every single Surah. Only people who are really foolish try to make something other than what Allah has revealed. Each and every reciter of the Qur’an who has learned from a true scholar and memorized the entire Qur’an can explain to you how the Qur’an came and how it is still preserved by Allah the Almighty in the minds and the hearts of the Muslims all over the world.
Let us give a quick and simple demonstration that can be used as a reference for all future generations as regards the Miracle of the Glorious Qur’an:
DEMONSTRATION:
Take 14 people that all speak the same language from the same area and ethnic background. (For instance, take 14 German Catholic Americans grew up and still live in Columbia, Missouri, all age 30 to 40 years old, speaking American English).
Put them away from each other in a separate room so that what you say to the first one will not be heard by others. Tell the first one 114 words in a particular order. Then ask him to go to the next person and whisper the same 114 words from memory into his ear.
Then ask that person to go to the next person and whisper in his hears the same thing that he or she has heard from you. Then ask that person to do the same thing to the next person. Then continue on down the line until you reach the last person in the room.
After the 13th person has completely recited to the 14th person whatever he or she can remember from number 12 person, ask number 14 to stand up and recite whatever he can remember from the 13th person.
Will the 14th person be able to recite exactly what the first person whispered to the 2nd person? NO.
Will some of the words be missing? Will new words be added?
Will the meaning be changed? Will there still be 114 words in what number 14 says? NO.
Now take a look at the Qur’an and think:
The Qur’an is being recited today from Indonesia to Mexico, from Sweden to Africa, from Pakistan to USA, all over the world. There are 114 chapters (not just 114 words). The people are not from the same background at all. The people do not speak the same languages.
The Qur’an is passed down from generation to generation – not just in the same room at the same time; people are all reciting it as though they memorized it from the same person – exactly. There are 114 Surahs (chapters) – over 6,000 Ayah (verses)
If all the books of the earth were destroyed or lost, the Glorious Qur’an is the only book that can be replaced exactly word for word without a single mistake. It is 100% perfectly preserved exactly word for word in the original classical Arabic language, in the minds and hearts of the Muslims all over the world. There is no other book on earth with this distinction.
Consider these challenges made in the Glorious Qur’an:
1) Allah says, “…this is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt.”
2) Challenge #1 – If it (the Qur’an ) were from other than Allah, you would find in it many contradictions (find one). And no one has done so to this day.
3) Challenge #2 – If you are in doubt about it, then bring a book like it.
4) Challenge #3 – Bring ten (10) Surahs (chapters) like it.
5) challenge #4 – Bring one (1) Surah like it.
For over 1,400 years the detractors of Islam have been trying to attack the Glorious Qur’an. Yet, after all this time they have not found anything that would be considered as refutation – in fact, they have only made fools of themselves.
Now as regards the written “Qur’an “, there are three existing books today that originated at the time of Caliph `Uthman, may Allah be pleased with him. The books were based on existing books from the Companions of Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, who had also memorized the entire Qur’an and they did confirm each and every word in these books. These books are located in museums in Tashkent (Uzbekistan), England, Topekopi Museum (Istanbul, Turkey). They are the exact same and again they do match that which is being recited in the hearts of the Muslims – 1,400 years later.
As regard your questions that should these people (who indirectly say Allah is lying) be called Muslims, what I’d like to tell you is: Try to talk to them and educate them with the proofs of the Glorious Qur’an. Take your time and pray for them. We don’t need to chase people away from Islam. Let us try to talk sense to them. If they continue in this misguidance without any effort on their part to change, then leave them and avoid them until they are willing to listen to reason. Don’t try to “convert” these people – just show them the truth. Be sure to continue to pray for them, Inshallah.
Concerning the authenticity of the Hadith that says that Muslims have lost a part of the Qur’an, there are no Hadiths of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, that are contradicting the Qur’an in any way. Get away from such people who talk like this. Pray for them and ask Allah to guide them to the real Islam. Any book that contain such fallacy should not be relied upon, and the proponents of such mistaken belief should be admonished; we should call them to the way of Allah, with wisdom and politeness. May Allah guide all of us to the Right Path, Amen.”
