There is an aayah inside Quran where Allah is saying: Surely We have revealed the Reminder and We will most surely be its guardian (15:9) As this verse is telling us, Quran is protected by Allah himself. This verse implies that Quran is not altered by the prophet, and it is not altered by the end of the prophet's life. There are two different understandings, however, on this aayah, one is from sunni people and the other is from Shia-athna-ashari. Shia-athna-ashari says that the book of Allah is protected by Allah himself and along with the history. Not even one single human being can add any letter, reduce any letter, or change any letter of it. This does include all types of human beings. It is , in reality, out of the power of human being to do that. As the result of such understanding, Shia-athna-ashari says: Even a Budist can not change Quran and publish it and widely. Even a zionist can not do that. A Shia can not do that. The prophet, himself, can not do that. Ali and his sons can not do that, None among SUNNI people can do that. Not a pagan can do that. Simply: No single human being can alter Quran in any way. On the other hand, there is sunni people who say that Shia have a different Quran. Let us see what this claim lead to: If you accept that a group of people such as shia (or any group named as XXXX) has altered Quran, you are simply question the ability of Allah in preserving Quran. You are saying that a group were able to do that and publish such Quran among themselves and use it. Well, God was supposed to protect Quran, right? If such Quran exists,then Allah must be weak. In other words, sunni people believe in a very weak version of protection of Allah. While Shia-athan-ashari people do not accept such weakness. In other words, whoever says like this does indeed believe that a few people (even one single human being) has already altered Quran. In other words, he, himself, believes in the alteration of Quran, not by himself, but by others. One may say that there is no physical different Quran. But Shia believe in that, just in their mind. You must be kidding. Don't you think that such Shia exists only in your MIND and nowhere else? Few ahaadith which are refering a different Quran also imply that the different Quran was seen by the narrator of the hadith. Sometimes, as you have seen by addition of "Who created" in Quran and I referred to before. The narrators even give you the exact words of such Quran, sometimes, they even give the full aayah which is deleted or added, or even they talk about full chapters of Quran. These two does not come along with each other. If such Quran exists, then the God must be lying to people. If the God is the most truthful and the most powerful, then there is no such Quran. Let me put this in another way: If you claim that such Quran did/does exist, you simply attack muslims and the present Quran and you are simply attacking the God. I would like to ask sunni brothers to answer: Do you think that a pagan indian can alter the Quran? (Honest, sunni brothers know this. What they wanted to do was to attack Shia in front of usual people who have come back from their farms.) ------------------------------- Before I end this article, I would like to bring something to your attention. Have you ever played chess, or have you ever watched others playing chess? (I am not playing) It has happened that (A) is very expert in playing chess. He plays with (B). When (B) is loosing and there is only one (or two ) move(s) for (B) to loose the game, (A) suggests something interesting. He rotates the chess sheet 180 degree. By this, the place of winner and looser will change. (A) who was winner before, is now looser, and (B) who was looser before, becomes closer to winning. But the story does not end here. (A) is so expert that he wins again. He can get rid of the problems, solve them, and gain power and the key rule in the play of chess. The story of Shia-athna-ashari is very similar to this. If you attend their religious classes, (not any class, though), you will find the same game again. The teacher proves to you that one subject is such and such. You become confident that you will leave this religion forever. Then he starts explaining all the previous reasons and opens each problem, and brings other sources and reasons, and you can see that how amazingly the definition of the subject is changed. You become so happy that you have got the truth. The difference is now that you think your faith is MORE stronger. This behavior is kept even inside of books. If a reader is not familiar with this method, he simply thinks that the author is Kafir. If he does not read the entire book, he will certainly be angry to some parts of the book. On the other hand, if the reader is patience, he will shortly see that the tone of the author is changed. This method has caused a lot of problem. One is for those readers who read these books partially. They simply accuse the author publicly that he is Kafir. If another person has read that book already, he will laugh at the first person for the lack of reading. Anyway: The subject of alteration of Quran is one of these subjects. It is quite possible to prove for you, the readers of SRI, that Quran is altered using Quran itself. The problem is that this method is very dangerous. If a person like me fails to correctly transfer the subject to you, most of you will certainly loose your faith to Quran. I can disprove all the reasons I bring for you, though, but it is too risky. I just wanted you to know that Shia-athna-ashari are so expert on this area that no other sects of islam have followed them in such subjects. They show that Quran is not altered using Quran, Hadith, and historical account. When the class ends, you will find a very firm system of thought about that special subject.You will find it closed and patched. They bring for you the sources from anywhere, simply anywhere, and show you the truth. As you can imagine, some babies of this schools of thought, such as me, know about 6 books of Sunni (Sehah Settah) even more than a normal sunni. I am sorry to say that Shia of this school is so progressed that they left others behind without paying any attention.
