Positron >>>"What is "royal plural" DOES NOT exist in the vocabulary of GOD. You are merely playing around with words. You cannot count the number of person mentioned in Surah 3:43-45 which is more than one angel. Gabriel is singular as He and never mentioned as "angels"!!!
Allah clearly tells us:
"Surely We have revealed it -- an Arabic Quran -- that you may understand." Surah 12:2
"And thus have We revealed it, a true judgment in Arabic, and if you follow their low desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you shall not have against Allah any guardian or a protector." Surah 13:37
The Quran follows Arabic construction, therefore 'angels' is royal plural.
As well, in all cases Mary, mother of Isa (pbuh), is only speaking to a single angel. That in itself should be clear to an alert reader.
Positron >>>: "Secondly Surah 3:3 says it is CONFIRMING the Torah and the Gospel of Jesus. This Gospel is kept by them Christians as Surah 7:157 mentioned about it. So what did the Gospel say about the angel Gabriel who come to Joseph. Gabriel is "angel of the Lord" and not "angels""
To establish the truth, accuracy, validity, or genuineness of; corroborate; verify:
to prove the truth of, as by evidence or testimony; confirm; substantiate; to prove or confirm.
So the Quran is the Truth, verifying what is true in previous Books and confirming they come from Allah.
A dictionary is your friend if English is not your primary tongue.
Your argument on "royal plural" will answer the plural "angels" for verse Surah 3:42-45 but proving your allah is double-minded to utter "angel" singular for the same angel in Surah 19:17-21. Hahahahaha..... You are merely slapping your own face.
a. How many Angels talked to Mary:
1. One angel came to her. Surah 19:17-21
2. Several angels came to her. Surah 3:42,45
Conclusion is that you have never answered the contradiction but merely playing around with words. Furthermore the verse is plagiarized from the Christian writing.
Positron >>> "God did not create heavens and earth in 6 days but in the very beginning. Allah is a false god who did not even know how to count the number of days."
Your Bible, full of errors, says one thing.
The Quran, with zero errors, says another thing.
Guess which Book I'm going to go with! :D
Positron >>> COMMENTS: Obviously Surah 3:3 is proven false when Surah 32:4 of "6 Days" does not CONFIRM the "beginning" of creation in Genesis 1:1. This alone shall be adequate to refute the words in Quran as the words of a false pagan god."
Confirms your Book was changed, most assuredly. Confirms you have the wrong Creation story too. :)
You are just proving that you allah is a liar by saying "Confirms your Book was changed, most assuredly."
You lied about your book is confirming the Torah and the Gospel as you can see the days of creation of heavens (universe) and the earth in the Quran is 6 Days whereas the Torah says "in the beginning" Genesis 1:1. Is that confirming or contradicting? Can you check your dictionary!!!
Thank you for proving that you allah is a liar by saying "Confirms your Book was changed, most assuredly." Yeshua said: "By their fruits you shall know them." So you are a liar and your allah is a liar. You and allah are both liars who shall be cast to hell-fire for eternity unless you repent by renouncing all those lies and follow Yeshua who is of superior faith, refer to Surah 3:55.
See what your Muhammad said about the Torah and the Gospel that you proved your allah is a liar and a pagan god!!! WOW! Thank you so much. By your saying "Confirms your Book was changed, most assuredly." you have proved the following verses are lies of your allah:-
Surah 5:44 Pickthal
Lo! We did reveal the Torah, wherein is guidance and a light, by which the prophets who surrendered (unto Allah) judged the Jews, and the rabbis and the priests (judged) by such of Allah's Scripture as they were bidden to observe, and thereunto were they witnesses. So fear not mankind, but fear Me. And My revelations for a little gain. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are disbelievers.
Surah 5:47 Pickthal
Let the People of the Gospel judge by that which Allah hath revealed therein. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are evil-livers.
Surah 5:48 Pickthal
And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it [Quran], and a watcher over it [Quran]. So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires away from the truth which hath come unto thee.
Surah 3:55 Pickthal
(And remember) when Allah said: O Jesus! Lo! I am gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto Me, and am cleansing thee of those who disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee ABOVE those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then unto Me ye will (all) return, and I shall judge between you as to that wherein ye used to differ.
Surah 3:55 Yusuf Ali
Behold! God said: "O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow thee SUPERIOR to those who reject faith, to the Day of Resurrection: Then shall ye all return unto me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute.
Surah 5:46 Pickthal
And We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow in their footsteps, confirming that which was (revealed) before him in the Torah, and We bestowed on him the Gospel wherein is guidance and a light, confirming that which was (revealed) before it in the Torah - a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off (evil).
Surah 5:110 Pickthal
When Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Remember My favour unto thee and unto thy mother; how I strengthened thee with the Holy Spirit, so that thou spakest unto mankind in the cradle as in maturity; and how I taught thee the Scripture and Wisdom and the Torah and the GOSPEL
Surah 7:157 Pickthal
Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the GOSPEL (which are) with them.
Surah 57:27 Pickthal
Then We caused Our messengers to follow in their footsteps; and We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow, and gave him the GOSPEL, and placed compassion and mercy in the hearts of those who followed him.
CONTRADICTION between "their Lord" in Surah 5:66 versus "he" in Surah 3:3
Surah 5:66 Pickthal
If they had observed the Torah and the GOSPEL and that which was revealed unto them from Their LORD, they would surely have been nourished from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them there are people who are moderate, but many of them are of evil conduct.
Surah 3:3 Pickthal
He hath revealed unto thee (Muhammad) the Scripture with truth, confirming that which was (revealed) before it, even as He revealed the Torah and the GOSPEL.
All the above verses tell us that allah revealed the Torah and the Gospel except Surah 5:66 which allah distance himself from Jehovah as "their lord" and a contradiction within Quran. Surah 5:66 prove that allah is not Jehovah, but an impostor, a liar, a pagan god.
That allah is a liar have been confirmed by your saying "Confirms your Book was changed, most assuredly." When allah said that he revealed those scripture of the Torah and the Gospel and never at any time say that he permitted his word to be changed but you dare to blaspheme him for changing the book!!! Who are you sir???
God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34). Do not ever deceive yourself to believe that God will respect one prophet's words above another prophet. The true God will ensure truth and justice prevail in His judgment. So there is no truth to exalt one book above another book as God is no respecter of persons. You are in deep trouble to say his earlier books have been changed!!! So you are living a double-standard life, a hypocrite!
