According to Islamists, the Qur’an is not only credible; it is God’s only uncorrupted revelation. No worries.. it ain't.

Is the Qur’an Credible?

Let me say it again.. according to the adherents of Islam, the Qur’an is not only credible; it is God’s only uncorrupted revelation. Of course this is false and they need the Bible Christ. According to Muslim scholars, if the Koran is to be compared with anything in Christianity, it is to be compared with Christ rather than the Bible. In truth, while the Bible can be demonstrated to be divine rather than merely human in origin, the same cannot be said for the Qur’an. Unlike the Bible, the Qur’an is replete with faulty ethics and factual errors. Islamists are sincere, but are sincerely wrong and far off-base. Let's earnestly pray for and tactfully share the true Gospel with them, like we would for anyone not yet right with God. Ask for wisdom and guidance in this.  
The Qur’an is replete with questionable ethics—particularly when it comes to the equality of women. For example, in Sura 4:3 Muhammad allegedly received a revelation from God allowing men to “marry women of your choice, two, three, or four.” Ironically, in Sura 33:50 Muhammad receives a divine sanction to marry “any believing woman who dedicates her soul to the Prophet if the Prophet wishes to wed her.” Thus, while other men were only permitted to marry up to four wives, Allah provided Muhammad with a divine exception for his marriage to at least twelve women—including Aishah, who was nine years of age when Muhammad consummated his marriage to her (Sahih Al-Bukhari, volume 5, #234). Also troubling is the fact that the Qur’an allows men to “beat” (lightly) their wives in order that they might “return to obedience” (Sura 4:34). When we compare the personal morality of Muhammad in the Qur’an with that of Jesus in the Bible, the difference is remarkable. The Qur’an exhorts Muhammad to ask “forgiveness for thy fault” (Sura 40:55). Conversely, Christ’s ethics with regard to every aspect of life—including His treatment of women—were so unimpeachable that He could rightly ask: “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?” (John 8:46; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 3:5).
Finally, unlike the Bible, the Qur’an is riddled with factual errors. A classic case in point involves the Qur’an’s denial of Christ’s crucifixion. This denial chronicled in Sura 4:157 is explicit and emphatic: “They killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them…for of a surety they killed him not.” 
In reality, however, the fatal suffering of Jesus Christ by crucifixion is one of the most well-established facts of ancient history.
In short, faulty ethics and factual errors demonstrate that the Koran aka the Qur’an is devoid of divine sanction. The distance between the Muslim Qur’an and the Christian Scriptures is the distance of infinity.
A real careful examination of Islam’s most trusted sources will show that the actions of the Islamic State are (as Nawaz claims) exactly what we would expect from a group that strives for complete obedience to Allah’s commands. While liberal Muslims like Nawaz (along with millions of Muslims who don’t insist on a strict reading of the Qur’an) will continue to live peacefully with their non-Muslim neighbors, the jihadist threat will sadly endure, because the threat emerges directly from the Qur’an. Consider a few of Allah’s commands concerning non-Muslims in the Qur’an:
O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness. (9:123)
Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah’s way, so they slay and are slain. (9:111)
Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection. (9:29)
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. (48:29, Hilali-Khan)

There are many suras dealing with this. Yes, here Muslims are commanded to fight, kill, or violently subjugate non-Muslims simply for being non-Muslims. And remember that it is totally okay for a Muslim person or a president or a leader to lie to an infidel. Guess what.. us non-Muslims, we are called Infidels. 

PS.  And according to Islamic practice, sacrifice during Ramadan is considered more valuable than that made at other times, so a call to martyrdom during this month may hold a special allure to many. Since Ramadan began, jihadists have carried out targeted deadly attacks in Orlando, Afghanistan, Kenya, Lebanon, Istanbul, and now Bangladesh. Ramadan means: A Time to Kill for Allah.
