“There is probably in the world no other book which has remained twelve centuries with so pure a text.” -Sir William Muir in “Life of Muhammad”, vol. 1 pg. 22 “There are in the public libraries of Europe many Qur’anic manuscripts of high antiquity, the oldest dating probably from the second Islamic century, but apart from some anomalies of spelling due to rudimentary character of the early Arabic orthography, no real variant can be detected in them. This conclusion is borne out by Noldake…” -A. Mingana in “Encyclopaedia of Religions and Ethics”, vol. 10 pg 549.

HAS THE BIBLE BEEN CHANGED? What the Christian scholars say… “A copyist would sometimes put in, not what was in the text, but what he thought out to be in it. He would trust a fickle memory, or he would make the text accord with views of the school to which he belonged.” - Reverend I.M. Drummelow, Bible Commentary, Cambridge University. “I saw that God had especially guarded the Bible, yet when copies of it were few, learned men had in some instances changed the words, thinking that they were making it plain, when in reality, they were mystifying that which was plain, by causing it to lean to their established views, which were governed by tradition.” - Ellen C. White, Bible Commentary, vol. 1 pg. 14.

In the King James Version (Authorised Version) of the Bible, the following appears: “AND I SAY UNTO YOU, WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY (DIVORCE) HIS WIFE EXCEPT IF IT BE FOR FORNICATION, AND SHALL MARRY ANOTHER, COMMITTETH ADULTERY; AND WHOSO MARRIETH HER WHICH IS PUT AWAY DOTH COMMIT ADULTERY.” (MATTHEW 19:9) [EMPHASIS OURS.] Divorce in Christianity has always been forbidden, except in the case where the wife commits adultery. Of course, only a small proportion of Christians actually practice on this teaching these days. But the point we want to make clear to the concerned Truth-seeker is how Bible scholars throughout the ages have tampered with scripture in successive versions. In the later 1952 Revised Standard Version (RSV) of the Bible, the very same above-quoted verse reads: “AND I SAY TO YOU WHOEVER DIVORCES HIS WIFE, EXCEPT FOR UNCHASTITY, AND MARRIES ANOTHER, COMMITS ADULTERY.” - (MATTHEW 19:9)

The propaganda of Western media, really has us fooled. An American or European woman who literally dresses and behaves like a prostitute, is portrayed as liberated, fashionable and enlightened, while a Muslim woman who, out of modesty, chooses to wear the hijaab, is seen as backward, misguided and oppressed. What a perversion of values! The poor woman in the West has been deceived and thinks that males have eventually relented by allowing her certain artificial freedoms of movement and behaviour, and thereby are giving her “liberation”. However, since the so-called “emancipation” of women, Western women are actually suffering more nervous breakdowns and psychiatric illness than ever before. In addition, women are now tragically subjected to increased level of rapes, molestation, unwanted pregnancies, HIV/AIDS infection and STD’s, abortions, divorces, etc. What kind of freedom is this?
