Those Are Their High-Fly­ing Lies Indeed !

The knowl­edge­able per­son may ques­tion : why raise an issue that have been dis­cussed and put to rest by both Mus­lim and non-Mus­lim schol­ars count­less times ? Well, first­ly, the issue of the so-called Satan­ic Vers­es“As the tra­di­tion of defama­tion against Islam demon­strates, it could only have been the Chris­t­ian mis­sion­ar­ies who fash­ioned the term Satan­ic vers­es’, and by none oth­er than Sir William Muir. Refer to Zakaria A. Bashier, The Mec­can Cru­cible, 1991, The Islam­ic Foun­da­tion, p. 185 (see foot­note 9). have been blown out of pro­por­tion so much that the Chris­t­ian mis­sion­ar­ies have tak­en advan­tage of this issue. The sad thing is that not many Mus­lims are aware of the whole sto­ry behind the Hadith al-Garaniq al-‘Ula saga, as the issue is known to the Islam­ic world.

Hav­ing said that, we can­not resist to notice the decep­tion con­tained in Chris­t­ian anti-Islam and anti-Mus­lim tau­to­log­i­cal rhetoric web­sites. These peo­ple are so obvi­ous­ly fear­ful of Islam that they had to resort to a source which have unan­i­mous­ly been reject­ed by all Islam­ic schol­ars, both past and present.

A claim from a Chris­t­ian who tries to per­pet­u­ate this issue says that :

    The Satan­ic vers­es are still here in the Quran, its to late to change them because the Prophet, accord­ing to his own claims, is to do the cor­rect­ing under inspiration…you have seen how the Satan­ic Vers­es” are not answered by the dis­claimers or pol­i­tics and tricks of Muhammad.

One real­ly won­ders at the arro­gance of this Chris­t­ian mis­sion­ary who claims that the so-called Satan­ic vers­es’ are not answered”. The knowl­edge­able Mus­lim can­not fail to men­tion Zakaria A. Bashier who deals with this issue quite thor­ough­ly in his book, The Mec­can Cru­cible. Oth­ers of equal­ly notable mer­it are M H Haykal’s The Life Of Muham­mad and S.M. Darsh’s Those Are The High-Fly­ing Cranes”, of which both will be men­tioned below.

Satan­ic Vers­es”: The Saga That Nev­er Was

Below we repro­duce sev­er­al arti­cles writ­ten by Mus­lims on the issue. Insha’al­lah, for now, these arti­cles would suf­fice, and we plan to repro­duce the chap­ter deal­ing with this issue from Zakaria A. Bashier. As we see it, there is no need to rein­vent the wheel and write a refu­ta­tion to the unsub­stan­ti­at­ed and rehashed argu­ments of the mis­sion­ar­ies when oth­er Mus­lim schol­ars have already dealt exten­sive­ly with the issue.

We hope that this issue have now been final­ly put to rest. And indeed, only God knows best !Endmark
