Does the “Bible” ever mention anything about the Quran?
i kinda had a debate in school with a friend on religious views. well, it all started with him going against my decision to watch The Golden Compass because he thinks the plot was really about a girl trying to “destroy God.” anyways… after that, he kinda went a bit beserk with the whole religious issues. i mean i hold on pretty tight with my Islamic beliefs and all but i ain’t all that religious, religious… you know, up to the point where i cover my self head-to-toe and don’t speak to guys at all (that’s just a bit too extreme.) after a while, he shifted the conversation to Islam. he, as a Christian, looked down on me for not believing that Jesus was the Son of God. he made a long lecture about the whole subject. it was like he wanted to convince me to change my views… but then i told him that the Quran was the last Holy Book sent down by God, and it mentions the Zabur, Torah, and the Bible… and also the Day of Judgement… and yet the Bible doesn’t mention zip about the Quran.
(sorry if it’s a lot to read)

but yeah, my friend just kept on asking me why i don’t just follow what the Bible says and thought it kinda ridiculous that i’m not.

i know it doesn’t… it was just one of those rhetorical type of questions or however you want to say it…

i guess it was just me trying to make a point to my friend as to why i follow the Quran…

the Quran is the last book ever sent down by God. and it explains everything. and the Bible was sent before… and i don’t see why many still follow that…

but hey… i still show respect to those of different beliefs… just not so much to those who can’t respect my own beliefs…

urgh… i just don’t know how else to explain it. lol xP

of course not, the bible was written hundreds of years before the koran. the koran DOES however speak of the “people of the book” implying christians, as well as many of the characters found in the old and new testament.

    The Old and New Testament precede the Quran.

  • Rage Against the Machine says:

    quran was written after the bible

  • JL90 says:

    To answer your question, no the Bible doesn’t mention the Quran. The last book in the Bible is Revelations, which explicitly states that there is no book after it.
    Also, the Old Testament had been compiled over time about a thousand years prior to the Quran, and the New Testament a few hundred years before the Quran.
    The Quran mentions the Bible because it was written afterwards and is based upon much of the Old and New Testament of the Bible, but with several new books added on. This is just like how the The Bible incorporates many of the books that compose the Torah, but the Torah makes no mention of the Bible because it predates it.

  • Trevor says:

    No Bible was written before the quran

  • Wise Duck says:

    The Bible predates the Koran by more than 500 years, so it’s not that surprising it didn’t mention it.

    Also the Torah makes no mention of the Bible.

  • shhnz says:

    not sur..but quran is written before bible.

  • jezuzgirl says:

    It doesn’t mention it because the Bible only contains truth.

  • Rick says:

    Because the bible was written 8 centuris before quran, how could it?

  • Harry says:

    No the Bible does not mention the Quran. The Quran was not written until the Christians had already started the First Crusade.

  • Esther says:

    No, the bible has no mention of a book that would someday be written called the Koran. It does however have warnings about false prophets or others coming along with false gospels.

  • Kostan says:

    the Bible was written before the Quran was written, so obviously no, except that Jesus profesies that there will be false prophets. I’m not saying that Muhammed didn’t get a revelation from God of the Bible. He probably did. But he led people down the wrong track.

  • satanhannity says:

    The bible was finished long before the quran came into being and, despite claims of fulfilled prophecies, has nothing whatsoever to say about anything postdating it’s completion. christians and jews are mentioned in the quran as “people of the book” and all three religions trace their imaginary roots back to Abraham and his two sons. Isaac and Ismail.

  • sosa__98 says:

    yes…on page 155, it say’s “the Qur’an, like totally rocks”…

    seriously…it’s in there…check it…

  • matt s says:

    Jesus is the only way to God from the christians point of veiw.
    There is absolutly no way to reconcile the differences between Islam and christianity.

  • AxeM says:

    The Bible predated Muhammed and his Quran. Today, it is thought that Muhammed was influenced by the Bible. I think this holds true.

  • infested by mindworms says:

    bible originates /the newest parts, at least/ in the year of Jesus’ death, in 34 AD, give or take a few years. Koran reproduced some parts of bible SIX centuries later. obviously any remark of koran in the Bible would be anachronous.

  • Saucy Spider says:

    Surely if the Quran was the LAST holy book sent down by God and it mentions the Bible, then the Bible wouldn’t be able to mention the Quran because it didn’t exist until after the Bible had been written.

  • =] says:

    no because the bible was written before quran! but i think your friend was being a jerk for insulting your religion!!!

  • Wonderwall says:

    Jesus warns that there will be many false prophets denying that Jesus is the Messiah and themselves claiming to represent God.
    Islam fits that description.

  • sweet cakes says:

    the problem is that the Bible was changed so many times from humans. I read that the bible has 50,000 mistakes. The original Bible was told to the people that there will be a last prophet but the Christians deny this. The Jewish people say yes to this saying but deny it is Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him. Good Luck honey in staying strong in your faith, Islam Allah Inshallah will be with you.

    If this guy can’t accept that you believe in a different religion, you should stop hanging out with him. The US was founded on the principle of religious tolerance. He sounds very in-tolerant.

    The New Testment was completed several hundred years before the Quran was written. (By the way, the Torah is the Hebrew word for the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, also called the Old Testament.)

  • tater says:

    No, the Word of God is truth, authored by the Spirit of Truth not the spirit of error. The devil had no part in authoring the bible.

  • utuseclocal483 says:

    No. The Koran was written many decades after the Bible. The author, Mohamed, was an obviously fallen and sinful human being- like all of us- who was more than obviously deceived by Satan. If the Koran contradicts the Bible in any way then it is the Koran which is wrong, not the Bible. The grave of Mohamed is in Mecca, and his body can be found there. Of that there is no doubt or argument. If this was not the case then Islam’s teachings would stipulate this, which they do not. The body of Jesus Christ can not be found in His tomb, and such has been the case since the day of His resurrection. Even at that time, the authorities at the time had to make up some lie to explain the absence of His body in the tomb- a lie which has never been proved.

  • upyr1 says:

    The Canon of the New testement was selected in the 4th entury and the Koran was writeen in the 7th-8th century.

  • Sherry says:

    the bible says that God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. So what He has inspired to be written will not ever change. The bible says that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and none can go to the Father except through Him. In the book of John, Christ claimed his deity and His sonship with the Father.

    is the quran gonna say a liar is a good man and prophet? Or is Jesus telling the truth? You will have to make up your own mind.

    No. The Koran was written by a different tribe of sheep hearders.
    Book of Mormon rules all others, it rules and others drool.

    The Jew and Christian religions are older then Islamic religions so it is therefore not mentioned in the Bible.

    Hinduism is generally considered to be the oldest religion still being practiced today. This ancient religion was born when the Aryan peoples migrated to Northern India and first put their religious tradition into writing. The texts they created are the Vedas, which were written around 1,500 B.C.E. (before common era) and have greatly influenced Indian culture ever since.
    Several other religions are almost as old as Hinduism. Judaism traces its roots back to the patriarch Abraham, who lived around 1,800 B.C.E. While the Jewish people are descended from Abraham, it was Moses who first recorded the Torah, the Jewish holy text, in 1,400 B.C.E. Most sources consider the date of the Torah as the beginning of Judaism.

    Zoroastrianism is sometimes called the world’s oldest prophetic religion. It’s certainly one of the earliest religions founded by one person. Scholars are not certain when the founding prophet Zarathustra actually lived. Some believe Zarathustra lived in the 6th century B.C.E., while others trace his writings to the 14th or 13th centuries B.C.E.

    India has been a veritable cradle for world religions — in addition to Hinduism, both Jainism and Buddhism originated in India. The first of Jainism’s sacred lords, called a Tirthankara, lived in the 8th century B.C.E. The last of these lords was Mahavir, who lived in the 5th century B.C.E. and was a key figure in spreading the religion. The philosophical teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, known as the Buddha, spread around Asia after his death in 483 B.C.E.

    Oddly enough, the two religions that dominate the world today are relative newcomers to the spiritual scene. Christianity began with the teachings of Jesus Christ around 30 C.E., and Islam started in 610 C.E. with the prophet Muhammad’s revelation.

    dear sister the bible to my own knowlledge has never mentioned any thing about guran, there is amention of our prophit mohammed (peace be upon him)and the quote goes like that by jesus(peace be upon him)-amessenger will come after me his name is Ahmed–and u will not find this quote in the modern bibles, and when i say bibles with the plural S it should be enough for u to under stand that those bibles are not the true word of our prophit is the last messenger of god. one last thing ask this friend of urs why there are so so many versions of the bible and the bible came from god only one version?

  • Joachim M says:

    In Mishnaic Hebrew the Hebrew Bible is qara’ or qra’, which means reading. The Hebrew word is clearly the same as Arabic qur’an. Modern Hebrew uses miqra’ or tanakh for the Hevrew Bible. The latter word is an abbreviation for torah, neviim, ketuvim.

    There are a few disputed verses in the New and Old Testament that Muslims claim as references to Muhammad.

    Yet, the real connection between Islam and the Bible comes in the Beatitudes.

    In my blog entry, Linguistics, Islam and the Beatitudes, I wrote the following.

    Closely reading verses of the Christian and Hebrew Bibles along with ayas of the Quran can elucidate the plain meaning of all three texts and show unexpected connections.

    Here is a typical English translation (New International Version) of Matthew 5:5:

    Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

    [Note that in some versions of the Christian Bible Matthew verses 5:5 and 5:4 interchange.]

    The above English translation is sloppy as both the Syriac Peshitta and also the Greek version of the New Testament show.

    Where the English Bibles usually have the phrase the earth, the Peshitta uses the word ar`a (Hebrew haaretz), and the Greek New Testament has the phrase ten gen, which means primarily the land and not the earth. (See versions of the verse at the end of the article.) Aramaic speakers at the time of Jesus would almost certainly have understood ar`a idiomatically as the Land of Israel or the Promised Land.

    Matthew 5:5 translates into Arabic as:

    al-barakatu lilmuslimina fasawfa yarithuna-l-arda. [native Arabic speaker’s translation]

    tas`adu-l-muslimuna fasawfa yarithuna-l-arda. [Joachim Martillo]

    The people of the land (am-haaretz) recognized that Jesus was the messiah (but not God). In return for their love, Jesus conferred upon his peasant followers the covenant of the land in a restatement of the promise to Abraham. He told the humble people (al-muslimuna, ha`anawim) that they would inherit the land (al-ard, ha’aretz) once the local religious-political elites, the local fanatics, and the imperial Romans had finished slaughtering each other.

    By the 3rd century most of the peasantry of Palestine practiced Judean Christianity, which recognized Jesus as messiah (Masih) but not as God or son of God.

    The article explains that the practices of the Palestinian peasantry constituted pre-Muhammad Islam.
