Someone(a non muslim) pointed on these 2 verses:
And they say, “Tales of the ancients; he wrote them down; they are dictated to him morning and evening.”
Among them are those who listen to you; but We place covers over their hearts, to prevent them from understanding it, and heaviness in their ears. Even if they see every sign, they will not believe in it. Until, when they come to you, to argue with you, those who disbelieve will say, “These are nothing but myths of the ancients.”
and told me these verse shows the story of previous Prophets was popular in arabia and it is possible that Muhammad (p.b.u.h) copied these into the Quran.
How should I answer?
Were the legends of former people really very popular among the Arabs?
I heard our prophet was ummi and had no knowledge about sculpture which came before him but if these stories were common in arabia it's also possible for him to know this.
Sorry to say,but this is affecting my iman.
