Cases of corrupting Quranic truth

(Misinterpreted verses)

Various Quranic verses have been badly misinterpreted. In the majority of cases, these mis-interpretations were a result of the scholar's attempts to uphold the teachings of the Hadith (Hadith are the alleged sayings of the prophet Muhammad). When a clear contradiction arose between a Quranic script and a particular Hadith, sadly the interpreters have chosen to corrupt the meaning of the Quranic verse so as to comply with the content of the Hadith!

As we have numerous clear cases where the Quran is contradicted by Hadith, we must wonder if it is possible that the prophet of God preached what is in contradiction to the word of God?

The answer is that he did not! The genuine believer in the Quran, and in the integrity of the prophet, will arrive at the conclusion that if there is any contradiction between Hadith and Quran it is because the Hadith in question is fabricated and cannot be the true words of the prophet.

Sadly many interpreters preferred to corrupt the meaning of the Quranic verses in question in order to uphold their cherished Hadith at any cost!

1- The Duration of Hajj 2:197

As per 2:197, God decreed that Hajj may be observed anytime during the four sacred months. This has been corrupted and limited to the first 10 days of the Arabic month of Zhu Al-Hijjah.

2- The manipulation of 24:31

Do the words in 24:31 make it obligatory for women to cover their hair?

3- The word "Hikmah" 2:151

As in 2:151, the word 'Hikmah' means wisdom. The corrupt scholars know that very well but in order to establish a reference in the Quran for the Hadith and Sunna of prophet Muhammad, when there is none, they claim that the word 'Hikmah' refers to the Hadith of Muhammad.

4- The Crucial Test of 39:45

In this glorious verse God sets a decisive criteria for the purity anyone's religion, but sadly the scholars and interpreters have completely demolished the truth of this verse.

The correct meaning of the word 'Shaheed' as used by God in the Quran.

6- What is the correct meaning of the word "waredha" in 19:71?

The corrupt interpretation of this one word has led to a whole false doctrine adopted by the majority of Muslims today!

The correct meaning of the word "Ummy" as per its Quranic use.

8- Is the challenge in 2:23 related to the poetic style of the Quran?

For many centuries the Muslims have claimed that the challenge given in 2:23 is related to the poetic style of the Quran. What is the truth of such a claim?

Does the word 'pair' in 51:49 refer to male and female? or does it refer to a greater arrangement?

10- What does the word "rajeem" in 15:34 really mean?

Through the corruption of this word, a whole corrupt ritual is being practiced during the annual Hajj (Pilgrimage) which is sadly without any Quranic legislation.

11- Was the vision seen by Abraham inspired by God? 37:102

In 37:102-111 we read that Abraham saw a vision where he was to kill his own son, who was the vision from? and what are the implications of this verse?

12- The corruption of the simple command in 6:118

The simple command in 6:118 and how it was replaced by the innovation of 'halal meat'.

13- Was prophet Muhammad the "Last Messenger"? 33:40

What does the Quran say about this issue, and does the interpretation of the scholars agree with the Quranic account?

14- The corruption of 53:2-4

In these verses God confirms that the inspiration revealed to prophet Muhammad (the Quran) was truly from God and not his own invention. Sadly, the idolisers of Muhammad have twisted the meaning of God's words to imply that every word spoken by Muhammad in his life time is to be regarded as divine inspiration!

15- The rich cannot buy themselves out of fasting! 2:184

A misleading interpretation of 2:184 gives the rich the choice to either fast or feed the poor! What is the truth in such a claim?

Is the whole pig prohibited in the Quran, or does God only prohibit the flesh of the pig in 5:3?

A totally twisted interpretation of 2:106 gave birth to a whole new corrupt science that claims that some Quranic verses are invalidated by others!

18- The Punishment for Theft 5:38

Should the hands of those who steal be chopped off? Is that what the Quran says?

19- The corruption of 33:56

Do the words in 33:56 indicate that Muslims should walk around parroting the phrase "Salli ala al-Nabi", or does the command in 33:56 have a totally different meaning?

20- Obey God and obey the messenger 5:92

This Quranic command has indeed been subject to one of the most serious misinterpretations. Through the manipulation of this Quranic command the devil has duped the millions into deserting the Quran and in stead following a version of Islam which is alien to the Quran.
