Christian missionaries often claim that Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) plagiarized from the Bible and that's how he/his scribes wrote the Qur'an.

What stories are there in Qur'an that are not in the Bible ? Essentially, what is unique about the context of the Qur'an ?

  • I doubt this question will attract a highly detailed answer, as the Quran preserved its authenticity while the bible didn't, therefore a comparison may not be feasible. Also we share a lot of common teachings God is not going to permit us to eat pork then change his mind, same stands for other teachings which explains the similarities as they are all Abrahamic religions! – Aboudi Mar 13 '16 at 12:45

    Uniqueness of content is not necessarily a proof of authenticity. To the contrary it can even be a proof of authenticity that the book contains and thus endorses the past authentic revelations considering that they were inspired by the same God.

    I can name one thing without doing any in-depth research: The story of Dhul-Qarnayn is related in chapter 18 (Surat al-Kahf, "The Cave") of the Quran. This chapter was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) when His tribe, the Quraysh, sent two men to discover whether the Jews, with their superior knowledge of the scriptures, could advise them on whether Muhammad was a true prophet of God. The rabbis told them to ask Muhammad about three things, one of them "about a man who travelled and reached the east and the west of the earth, what was his story". – user14305 Mar 13 '16 at 13:56
  • "If he tells you about these things, then he is a prophet, so follow him, but if he does not tell you, then he is a man who is making things up, so deal with him as you see fit." (Verses 18:83-98). In above story, Jews/Christians did not know about the third travel of the Dhul Qarnayn. – user14305 Mar 13 '16 at 13:56

    I'm not talking about that. I mean, this is an Islamic site, people who want to learn and teach about Islam* come to this site. You can't expect people to have read the Bible. Can you? – servant-of-Wiser Mar 21 '16 at 7:37
