Answer:

 

Athiest says Quran written by man

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Dear and Beloved Sister, your atheist friend is indeed accurate to say that the Bible, in its present form is written by man.for the Bible (depending on the version) itself states that it is written by Luke, and Matthew, and John, and Mark. One simple read of the Bible in its present form, with all its relevant contradictions amongst the editions and versions would be more than sufficient to convince the reader that it is indeed the work of man.

 

But the Bible or (Arabic) Injeel which was Revealed by Allah Subhanah upon the Noble Messenger Isa ibn Maryam (a.s.) was definitely the very Words of Allah Subhanah.which unfortunately through time was distorted, altered, and subsequently destroyed.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 46:

46 And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Injeel (Bible): therein was guidance and light and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 57 Surah Hadid verse 27:

27 Then in their wake We followed them up with (others of) Our Messengers: We sent after them Jesus the son of Mary and bestowed on him the Injeel (Bible).

 

The Glorious Quran on the other hand is without an iota of a doubt the very Words of Allah Subhanah as revealed upon His Last and Final Messenger, Mohamed ur-Rasool Allah (saws). Unlike the previous Scriptures, the authenticity of the Glorious Quran is guaranteed by the Lord Most High Himself.and that is the reason that in-spite of unfortunately the many sects and sub-sects amongst the Ummah of Muslims.there remains just one single version of the Glorious Quran.the one that was revealed in Truth by the Lord Most High upon His Last and Final Messenger Mohamed ibn Abdullah (saws).

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 15 Surah Al Hijr verse 9:

It is We (Allah), Who has sent down this Quran, and We will assuredly guard it against corruption!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 41 Surah Ha Mim As Sajdaah verse 2-4:

This (Quran) is a Revelation from the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful Allah. A Book whose verses are well-expounded, an Arabic Quran for the people who want to understand, and a giver of good news and a warner.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 1-3:

All praise is for Allah Alone, Who has sent down this Book (Al-Quran) to His Servant (Mohamed (saws)), and assigned nothing crooked to it. This Book says everything directly, so that he may warn the people of the severe chastisement of Allah and give good news to the believers, who do righteous deeds, that they will have an excellent reward.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 99:

We (Allah) have sent down to you Revelations that clearly expound the Truth, and none but the disobedient reject them.




 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 26 Surah Shuaraa verses 191-195:

The fact is that your Lord is Mighty, as well as Merciful. This (Quran) has been revealed by the Lord of the Worlds! The trustworthy Spirit (Jibrael a.s.) has come down with it upon your (Prophet Mohameds (saws)) heart, so that you may become one of those who are (appointed by Allah) to warn (the people) in plain Arabic language.

 

Beloved sister in Islam, logic and common sense, and even the law of every court of this world, dictates that the onus of producing the proof always lies on the one who brings forward an accusation! If one were to get up today and challenge something which is formally accepted by people, the onus of producing the proof would always by upon the person who accuses! For example, if I were to say that books like Macbeth or Romeo & Juliet were not written by Shakespeare, the onus of producing the proof of my accusation lies upon me!

 

Dear and Beloved Sister, man says that the world today has changed since the Revelation of the Quran 1400+ years ago! But Allah is our witness, the mentality of the disbelievers has not changed even one single bit!!! When the Noble Prophet (saws) declared that He was appointed a Prophet of Allah and was receiving Revelations of the Quran from The Lord Most High, the disbelievers in his (saws) mission 1400 years ago posed the exact same questions which some people pose today! .that Quran is not from Allah but from man himself!

 

Glory be to the Lord Who Revealed the Glorious Quran in Truth to His Last and Final Messenger (saws)! Allah is our witness brother, the answer that the Lord gave to the objections and challenges and accusations of the disbelievers 1400+ years ago are as valid today as they were then!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 11 Surah Hud verses 13-14:

Do they (the disbelievers) say, He (Mohamed (saws)) has invented the Book himself? Say to them, Very well then, if it is so, then bring ten fabricates Surahs like this! And you may call to your assistance whosoever you can except Allah, if you speak the truth! Now if they (your false gods) do not come to your help, you should know that this Book has been revealed with the Knowledge of Allah, and that there is no true deity other than Allah. Do you then surrender to this?

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 23-24:

And if you be in doubt whether the Book We have sent down to Our Servant is from Us or not, then produce, at least, one surah like this. You may call all your associates to assist you and avail yourselves of the help of any, other than Allah. If you are genuine in your doubt, do this! But if you do not do this, and you can never do this, then fear the Fire which has been prepared for the disbelievers, and which shall have men and stones for fuel.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 82:

Do they not ponder over the Quran? Had it been from any other than Allah, surely there would have been many contradictions in it.

 

For all those who accuse that the Glorious Quran is man-made and not from the Lord Creator, Allah Subhanah challenges them to do one of three things if they are indeed truthful:

  1. Seeking the help of whomever they wish except Allah Subhanah, to produce only 10 Surahs like unto the wisdom and eloquence of this Glorious Revelation of Allah!
  2. If producing 10 Surahs like unto the Glorious Quran would be asking too much of them, Allah Subhanah absolutely humiliates and frustrates the challengers and asks them to produce only One Surah like unto it!!! (And the shortest Surah in the Glorious Quran is only three verses!!!!)
  3. If they are unable to fabricate even only three verses like unto the Glorious Quran, the Lord delivers the final death blow and Declares in All His Majesty and Perfectness, and absolutely humiliates the disbelievers by challenging them to find even only ONE discrepancy or contradiction in the Whole of His Glorious Message! Only ONE!

 

Allah is our witness sister, the challenge that our Lord Most High posed to the disbelievers in the Quran has stood the test of time for 1400+ years since its Revelation; and Allah is our witness sister, it will stand the test of time till the very end of time itself: for never ever can anyone in creation produce something the like of which our Lord Most Supreme has Revealed!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Isra verse 88:

Declare this! Even if human beings and the jinns should co-operate with one another to bring forth a book like the Quran, they would never be able to bring anything like it, even though they all helped one another!

 

After absolutely humiliating and frustrating the false accusations and challenges of the disbelievers, Allah Subhanah reveals the true reason, intention, and mentality of those who ardently strive to disbelieve:

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 33:

We know that what they say grieves you (O Prophet (saws)). But it is not you whom they charge with falsehood! These wicked people are in fact, denying the (very) Revelations of Allah!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 7:

(O Prophet) even if We had sent down to you a Book written on paper, and even if they had touched it with their own hands, the disbelievers would have said, This is nothing but manifest sorcery!.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 157-158:

Now that a clear Proof, a Guidance and Blessing (The Quran), has come to you from your Lord, who can be more unjust than the one who treats Our Revelations as false and turns away from them? We will inflict the severest torment on those who turn away from Our Revelations because of their aversion. Do the people now await that the angels should come down before them? Or that your Lord may Himself come down? Or that the manifest Signs of your Lord should appear?

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rum verses 58-60:

We have set forth in this Quran every sort of argument to make the people understand; but whatever aayah you may bring, the disbelievers will certainly say, You are following falsehood. Thus does Allah seal up the hearts of those who understand not. So, patiently perservere; for surely the promise of Allah is True. And let not those who have no certainty of faith, shake your firmness.

 

Then finally, Allah Subhanah, after all His Perfect arguments Declares the punishment for those who even after this refuse to believe:

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 34 Surah Saba verse 5:

As for those who strive hard to discredit Our Revelations, for them is a painful torment, most humiliating.

 

And in His Supreme Mercy and Grace, the Lord Most Gracious consoles the heart of the Prophet (saws) and those who have believed and tells them exactly how to deal and reply to those disbeliever who, after having been given the Message in the best manner still ardently refuse to believe:

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verses 40-44:

Some of these people will believe in (The Quran), and others will not. Your Lord knows these mischief-makers very well indeed. If these people deny you, say to them: I am responsible for my deeds and you are for yours. You are not accountable for what I do, nor am I for what you do. There are many among them who hear what you say, but will you make the deaf to listen to you, even though they be incapable of understanding this? Then there are many others among them who see you. But will you show the way to the blind, even though they be bereft of sight? The fact is that Allah does not in any way wrong the people, but they wronged themselves!

 

Your Question: So, can u plz help me 2 explain him that its a word of God, n the guide 2 the right way of living?

Dear and beloved Sister in Islam, the absolute best way to explain to your atheist friend regarding the authenticity of the Glorious Quran is to present him/her with a copy of the Glorious Quran and invite him to read it for himself/herself.

 

If after reading the Quran, your atheist friend is still not convinced that the Glorious Quran is the very Words of the Lord Creator, know with absolute conviction that even if the disbelievers saw the Glorious Quran being revealed with their own eyes, or even if they had touched the Revelation with their own handsthey would not believe!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 7:

(O Prophet) even if We had sent down to you a Book written on paper, and even if they had touched it with their own hands, the disbelievers would have said, This is nothing but manifest sorcery!.

 

If the disbelievers in the Quran await that the Angels should descend, or the Lord Most High Most Majestic Himself should descend, or that the Manifest Signs of the Lord should appear before they believe in the Revelation of the Lord..their belief then will not profit them in the least!

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 157-158:

Now that a clear Proof, a Guidance and Blessing (The Quran), has come to you from your Lord, who can be more unjust than the one who treats Our Revelations as false and turns away from them? We will inflict the severest torment on those who turn away from Our Revelations because of their aversion. Do the people now await that the Angels should come down before them? Or that your Lord may Himself come down? Or that the manifest Signs of your Lord should appear?

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
