Over the course of a number of years, I have studied, debated, and discussed the Qur’an with Muslims. As one of the biggest and most rapidly growing religions, the Islamic faith attracts a lot of attention and debates. The last sixty years have been witness to innumerable conflicts between Muslims and Jews, and Muslims and the western world (Christians). Many famous people have accepted Islam, and increasing numbers of westerners are becoming Muslims every year. Muslims scholars loudly proclaim that the Qur’an is the only Holy Book sent by God, and Islam is the “last religion”, the purpose of which is to spread its tenets around the globe and to build a world-wide Caliphate. I suggest for those who are considering becoming a Muslim to read very seriously the Qur’an and the Bible simultaneously. Because the Qur’an mentions biblical stories a great number of times, the references should be read alongside the comparable passages in the Bible. I have attempted to accomplish this idea in this book and hope that it will be a useful tool for studying their differences and similarities. I hope that it will help the reader to understand the origin of these Books and find the Truth contained in its pages. Part three is included to demonstrate the differences between the non-canonical texts and the Bible. I believe that some of the stories and ideas written in the Qur’an come from this source. I hope it will help the reader to understand why these texts were never included in the Canon of Scripture and where some traditions of certain Christian denominations mark their beginning.
