Is the Quran Quoted From the Bible? (50) - Chapter 50- C: the Third Part (i)
Comparative Study between the Bible and the Quran (50) - C: The third part (I)
The Old Testament Verses from 1-10 are talking about Jacob died and Joseph buried him in Canaan (See: A: The first part).
The New Testament Verses from 1-10 are talking about the Debate Between Jesus and the Jewish Priests about the Sabbath (See: B: The second part).
The Noble Quran Verses from 1-10 are talking about the disbelievers marveled that Allah made an oath and they said What! When we died and have become dust? Shall we return to life? (see: C: The third part II).
The Noble Quran:
Chapter 50 in the Noble Quran is composed of 45 verses.
Verses from 1-10 are talking about 1) The Arabic letter Qaf used when Allah swore by the noble Quran, 2) The disbelievers marveled that Allah made an oath, 3) The disbelievers said: What! When we died and have become dust? Shall we return to life? 4) The disbelievers are in confounded situation about the Quran and 5) The thinking of the ancient ignorant Arabic Disbelievers and the Modern Disbelievers is matched.
Verse one says:
Qaf is an Arabic letter, it is the first letter of the word "Quran". It is said the verse means that Allah swore by it, the letter Qaf and He swore by the glorious, noble Quran.
Verse two says:
Nay, but the disbelievers consider it odd that there should have come to them a warner from among themselves, a messenger who is one of them, to threaten them with the punishment of the Eternal Fire after resurrection. So the disbelievers say, ‘This, warning, is an odd thing!
In other words, disbelievers marveled that Allah made this oath: they marveled when they were told they will be resurrected after death. They marveled a warning messenger from their own lineage has come unto them; and they said: This, which Muhammad says, i.e. that they will be resurrected after death, is a strange thing.
This was the saying of the ignorant Arabic Disbelievers more than 1400 years ago.
It is interesting that it is also the same saying of the Modern Disbelievers nowadays!
Hence, the thinking of the ignorant Arabic Disbelievers and the Modern Disbelievers is matched and harmonized.
Man is man; never changed!
Verse three says:
What! When we are dead and have become dust?, shall we return to life? That which Muhammad claims is a far-fetched return!', i.e. an event that is extremely remote. They said: Shall we be brought back again? This will never happen; thus they are denying resurrection after death.
Verse four says:
Allah, Exalted is He, said:
We know what the earth diminishes, consumes, of them, We know that which the earth takes of them)
and with Us is a preserving Book, namely, the Preserved Tablet which contains everything that has been ordained by Allah.
In other words, Allah knows that which the earth devours of their flesh after they die and that which it leaves, and with Us is a recording Book, a Book preserved from Satan. This is the Guarded Tablet wherein is recorded their death, stay in the grave and resurrection on the Day of Judgment.
Verse five says:
Nay, but they have denied the Truth; they have denied Muhammad and the Quran when it came unto them.
This is the second clause of the oath, i.e. by the noble and glorious Quran, Muhammad has brought them the Quran, therefore they are in confounded situation, in a troubled case; they are in error;
It is also said that this means: they are confused; and it is also said this means: they are in disagreement, some of them believe while others do not.
The Verses 50:1-5 in different English translations:
QARIB: qaaf. by the glorious koran!
SHAKIR: qaf. i swear by the glorious quran (that muhammad is the messenger of allah)
PICKTHAL: qaf. by the glorious qur'an,
YUSUFALI: qaf: by the glorious qur'an (thou art allah's messenger).
QARIB: no, but they marvel that from among themselves a warner has come to them. the unbelievers say (in mockery): 'this is a marvelous thing!
SHAKIR: nay! they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves, so the unbelievers say: this is a wonderful thing:
PICKTHAL: nay, but they marvel that a warner of their own hath come unto them; and the disbelievers say: this is a strange thing:
YUSUFALI: but they wonder that there has come to them a warner from among themselves. so the unbelievers say: "this is a wonderful thing!
QARIB: what, when we are dead and turned to dust? that indeed would be an unlikely return! '
SHAKIR: what! when we are dead and have become dust? that is afar (from probable) return
PICKTHAL: when we are dead and have become dust (shall we be brought back again)? that would be a far return!
YUSUFALI: "what! when we die and become dust, (shall we live again?) that is a (sort of) return far (from our understanding)."
QARIB: we know all that the earth takes away of them, and a book of records is with us.
SHAKIR: we know indeed what the earth diminishes of them, and with us is a writing that preserves
PICKTHAL: we know that which the earth taketh of them, and with us is a recording book.
YUSUFALI: we already know how much of them the earth takes away: with us is a record guarding (the full account).
QARIB: rather, they belied the truth when it came to them, and now they are in a state of confusion.
SHAKIR: nay, they rejected the truth when it came to them, so they are (now) in a state of confusion
PICKTHAL: nay, but they have denied the truth when it came unto them, therefor they are now in troubled case.
YUSUFALI: but they deny the truth when it comes to them: so they are in a confused state.
