Christian: Why did Allah send the Quran?
Muslim: Allah SWT sent new revelation because the earlier books were corrupted and changed.
Christian: Then why did Allah say in the Qquran that the Christians should judge by their books (Sura 5:47) if it was no longer dependable at the time of the Quran. Also Torah, Zabur & Injeel are mentioned over 40 times in the Quran. But not a single time out of these 40 times does the Quran say that Torah, Zabur and Injeel are corrupted. If they were corrupted, dont you think Allah would have made it very clear every time he mentioned those books by name?
Muslim: The earlier books, Torah, Zabur, Injeel were not yet corrupted when the Quran was sent. Only later on they were changed by you people.
Christian: Wait. You just said that the Quran was sent because of corruption of earlier scriptures. Now you say they were not yet corrupted? So if they were not yet corrupted, then why did Allah send the Quran?
Muslim: Well, Allah SWT has all knowledge and knew that the books would be corrupted by evil men, so He sent the Quran in advance. He knows best
Christian: Since Allah knew that his own words would be corrupted, did he have the power to protect his words? Why didn’t he thwart the plans of men? And are you saying that the words of the men who ‘corrupted” the bible has been preserved for thousands of years till today but Allah’s own words are gone?
Christian: Hello? Are you still there?
Can Scriptures be corrupted?
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. (Isaiah 40:8)
Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. (Psalms 119:89)
But the word of the LORD remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you. (1 Peter 2:15)
For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. (Matthew 5:18)
Jesus said: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away”. (Matthew 24:35)
All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16)
Again, can God’s Word be corrupted? No. Yahweh has kept His Word.
The promises He has given us shows that the Word of God cannot be corrupted by human hands.
Anyone who claims the scriptures are corrupted believes in a weak, powerless god who was unable to keep and preserve His own word to mankind.
This is a god who could not even keep his own promise that his Word would be eternal; this is a god that is weaker than human beings who managed to outsmart him and and cause him to lose his words. Do you believe in a god who has no record of his words from the time of creation up to the 7th century AD?
If you still claim that the scriptures are corrupted, you are saying that god failed to preserve his words but the corrupted words of weak human beings have survived and have been preserved for thousands of years.

God is impersonal, and humans have free will. Now karma fell upon them since corruption of rabbis and bishops of past, and the Unlettered Prophet came to bring humanity the Peace through Submission to the One True God.
If you say is true, God should’ve still spoken to us, which is almost impossible to do without spiritual training.
Now where does it say God intervened when people wrote…
You said, “God is impersonal.”
What you really mean is the god of Islam is impersonal. Your allah cannot be known.
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Yahweh, has made Himself known.
The apostle Philip once asked Jesus, ““Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” (John 14:8)
How do you think Jesus responded? Sorry Philip. God is impersonal and unknowable?
He said, “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me?”
If that is shirk, then Jesus is guilty.
