A Brief Description of Islam as the Shi'ites Believe
All the learned, and researcher of Islam, whether SHIITE or SUNNI, agree that the least alteration has not ever occurred in this Holy Book.
Some literate persons discuss some rare and obscure tradition (HADITH) that may mean that some changes have taken place, but the highest majority of those who have the knowledge of Islam, reject that, taking it false and the mistake of some unaware commentators.
Such improvident who lack forethought, by such false ideas strike upon the validity of the most important DIVINE BOOK, in contrast to the belief of all the learned Muslims of different sects, which maintain that QURAN is unaltered for the least of words. These unwise friends, water the mills of the enemy through their ignorance, and bring into question the book which is sent by Allah, and has been promised to be guarded by Allah.
If we carefully study the ways that the book was revealed to the prophet and collected by the chosen scribes, and how it was guarded, written, memorized and recited by so many firm and true believers, no doubt remains as to any alteration or the change of even an epsilon in the whole work.
On the other hand, of the imaginary or assumed Quran with some alteration, not ever a copy exists anywhere, or in any hand, so as to differ with the famous HOLY QURAN which all the Muslims hold as their SACRED DIVINE BOOK.
Today the Holy Quran is found in every house and in every library. Even those Qurans written several hundred years ago are kept in our MUSEUMS and those in the non Islamic countries, and no one can find the least differences in all the existing Qurans throughout the wide world.
Today the roads to investigations are open to all, and anyone who doubts, may look for it himself and make sure that QURAN has not been altered for the least.
"So announce glad tidings to My Servants _ to those who listen to My PRECEPTS, and follow what is the best in them. Those are the ones that Allah has guided and those are endued with understanding."
THE HOLY QURAN _ S39: 17_18
Today, in our religious schools, the knowledge of QURAN is extensively taught, and one of the most important of our lessons in this field is the UNCHANGEABILITY OF QURAN.
