Scholars' Viewpoint: Is Quran the Word of God?

Islam is a continuation of all Divine religions that began with the Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) and got refined through Divine Scriptures revealed unto Prophets Daud, Musa and Eesa (David, Moses and Christ, peace be upon them all) and finally culminating in its most perfect form in the form of the Qur'an revealed on Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the 7th century A.D. And today, Islam is the second largest religion after Christianity around the world.

However, despite its universality, Qur'an has been subject to criticism by people of other faiths, specially Christians, for it challenges many a misconceptions and concoctions that have crept into the Divine scriptures and for the reason that Islam has started to get more popular despite a severe media campaign all over the world that Christianity. More and more people are reverting to Islam and some critics of Islam fear that by 2050, many presently Christian dominated countries will be dominated by Islam.

In order to belittle Islam as a Divine religion, there has been a school of thought which has started propagating that Qur'an is in fact written by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by listening to earlier scriptures. Had it been so, well read Christians, including some theologians and mathematicians had not embraced Islam. Additionally, there so many scientific miracles explained in the Qur'an the knowledge of which was not known to science of the time, like the miracle of birth of human fetus, its development, the movement of sun and moon, the presence of mountains which are holding the earth firmly, and many more.

I could quote many aspects and truth contained in the Qur'an that proves it could not have been written by a human being but One True God Himself. But the following lecture will dispel all such misconceptions and open the polluted minds and bring them a peace.

Please watch an enlightening video on the subject by Zakir Abdul Karim Naik, an Islamic televangelist and Islamic preacher. He is the founder and president of the Islamic Research Foundation. He is also the founder of the Peace TV:
