What the Bible and the Quran Say about the Prophets?

The Prophets Lot, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, and Job (peace be upon them) were noble Messengers of Allah and are mentioned in both the Quran and the Bible. The belief in these Prophets is one of the six pillars of Faith in Islam. Muslims have great respect for them and believe that their truthfulness and good manners are above suspicion. While the Quran mentions them in a lot of praise, which they deserve, the Bible accuses them of great sins, such as, cheating, adultery, incest, betrayal, worshiping idols and blasphemy. The Muslim is shocked at these false charges against the Prophets. These charges are unbelievable and completely rejected. If normal people do not commit these sins, how far the Prophets are from doing that!

The Prophets were specially prepared and chosen by Allah to deliver His Message and to be good examples for people to follow. The Prophets embodied in their own speech and actions the teachings they were preaching. Could a Prophet command people to worship Allah alone, while his heart is turned after other gods? Could he command people to do the right and avoid the wrong, while he commits great sins? Could he command men not to look at women lustfully, while he commits adultery? This is totally unimaginable! Accusing the Prophets of these great sins is an indirect insult to Allah Who chose and prepared them to convey His Message and guide people to the right way of belief, worship and behavior. The allegation that the Prophets committed great sins means that Allah wants people to commit these sins because people are commanded to obey the Prophets and follow their example!

These stories are certainly not revelations from Allah. How could a Book of Allah falsely accuse the Messengers of Allah of very shameful deeds that Allah has strongly forbidden?

These fabricated stories about the Messengers of Allah spread corruption and evil deeds on earth. If the Messengers of Allah committed these great sins, then how could the wicked people be punished or even blamed for committing such sins?

Truly, the Muslim’s heart overflows with sorrow that the Torah, the Book of Allah which was revealed as a shining light and guidance, has been changed into a book full of fabricated stories accusing Allah’s Messengers of great sins.

(1) What the Bible Says about Prophet Moses and Prophet Aaron (pbut)

On that same day the Lord told Moses, This is because both of you broke faith with me in the presence of the Israelites at the waters of Meribah Kadesh in the Desert of Zin and because you did not uphold my holiness among the Israelites. (Deuteronomy 32:48-51)

So all the people took off their ear-rings and brought them to Aaron. He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, "These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt." (Exodus 32:3,4)

What the Quran Says

And mention in the Book Moses. Verily, he was chosen and he was a Messenger, a Prophet. And We called him from the right side of the Mount, and made him draw near to Us for a talk with him. And We granted him his brother Aaron, a Prophet, out of Our Mercy. (Quran, 19:51-53)

O you who believe! Be not like those (Jews) who annoyed Moses, but Allah cleared him of that which they alleged, and he was honorable before Allah. (Quran, 33:69)

And Aaron indeed had said to them beforehand: “O my people! You are being tested in this, and verily, your Lord is (Allah) the Most Gracious, so follow me and obey my order.” They said: “We will not stop worshiping it (the calf), until Moses returns to us.” (Quran, 20:90,91)

And We gave them the clear Scripture. And guided them to the Right Path. And We left for them (a goodly remembrance) among the later generations. Peace be upon Moses and Aaron. Verily, thus do We reward the good-doers. Verily, they were two of Our believing slaves.(Quran, 37:117-122)

(2) What the Bible Says about Prophet Lot (pbuh)

That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter went in and lay with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up. … So both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father. (Genesis 19:33-36)

What the Quran Says

And Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot and each one of them we preferred above all creation. (Quran, 6:86)

And Lot, We gave him right judgment and knowledge And We admitted him to Our Mercy; truly, he was of the righteous. (Quran, 21:74,75)

(3) What the Bible Says about Prophet Solomon (pbuh)

As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the Lord his God, as the heart of David his father had been. He followed Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molech the detestable god of the Ammonites ...On a hill east of Jerusalem, Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable god of Moab,… (1 Kings 11:4-7)

What the Quran Says
And to David We gave Solomon. How excellent a slave! Verily, he was ever oft-returning in repentance! (Quran, 38:30)

Indeed We gave knowledge to David and Solomon, and they both said: “All the praises and thanks are to Allah, Who has preferred us above many of His believing slaves!” (Quran, 27:15)

(4) What the Bible Says about Prophet Jacob (pbuh)

Jacob lied to get Isaac’s blessing

Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn ... Please sit up and eat some of my game so that you may give me your blessing." … When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes, he blessed him (Jacob).

Esau said, "He (Jacob) has deceived me these two times: He took my birthright, and now he’s taken my blessing!” (Genesis 27:19-36)

The Lord has a charge to bring against Judah; he will punish Jacob according to his ways and repay him according to his deeds. In the womb he grasped his brother’s heel; as a man he struggled with God. He struggled with the angel and overcame him; he wept and begged for his favour (Hosea 12:2-4)

What the Quran Says

And We bestowed upon him Isaac and Jacob each one We made righteous. And We made them leaders, guiding by Our Command, and We revealed to them the doing of good deeds, performing Salat (prayer), and the giving of Zakat (charity) and they were worshipers of Us (alone). (Quran, 21:72,73)

And remember Our slaves, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, owners of strength (in worshiping Us) and of religious understanding. Verily, We did choose them by granting them the remembrance of the Hereafter. And they are with Us, verily, of the chosen and the best. (Quran, 38:45-47)

(5) What the Bible Says about Prophet David (pbuh)

One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman (the wife of Uriah) bathing. The woman was very beautiful… Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her … Then she went back home. The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.”…

In the morning David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it with Uriah. In it he wrote, “Put Uriah in the front line where the fighting is fiercest. Then withdraw from him so that he will be struck down and die.”…

When Uriah’s wife heard that her husband was dead, she mourned for him. (2 Samuel 11:2-26)

What the Quran Says

Indeed We gave knowledge to David and Solomon, and they both said: “All the praises and thanks are to Allah, Who has preferred us above many of His believing slaves!” (Quran, 27:15)

Be patient (O Muhammad) of what they say, and remember Our slave David, endowed with power, Verily, he was ever oft-returning in all matters and in repentance (toward Allah). (Quran, 38:17)

We made his (David) kingdom strong and gave him wisdom and sound judgment in speech and decision. (Quran, 38:20)

For him (David) is a near approach to Us, and a beautiful place of final return (Paradise). (Quran, 38:25)

(6) What the Bible Says about Prophet Job (pbuh)

After this, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. (Job 3:1)

I will say to God: do not condemn me, but tell me what charges you have against me. Does it please you to oppress me… while you smile on the schemes of the wicked? (Job 10:2-3)

...then know that God has wronged me and drawn his net around me. Though I cry, ‘I‘ve been wronged!’ I get no response; though I call for help, there is no justice. (Job 19:6-7)

Why does the Almighty not set times for judgment? (Job 24:1)

Let God weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless (Job 31:6)

For he(Job) says, ‘It profits a man nothing when he tries to please God.’ (Job 34:9)

What the Quran Says

And remember Our slave Job, when he invoked his Lord (saying): “Verily, Satan has touched me with distress (by ruining my health) and torment (by ruining my wealth)!” (Allah said to him “Strike the ground with your foot: This is (a spring of) water to wash in, cool and a (refreshing) drink.” And We gave him (back) his family, and along with them the like thereof, as a mercy from us, and a reminder for those who understand
Truly, We found him patient. How excellent a slave! Verily, he was ever oft-returning in repentance (to Us)! (Quran, 38:41-44)
