Here are some of the reasons why Muslims don’t accept the Bible. One of the main reasons is the way illustrating God and His prophets, in the Bible, God is described with attributes and analogies that we Muslims condemn describing God that way. And the way of illustrating His prophets in many cases as idolaters, adulterers, drunk. Muslims can’t accept this on God’s prophets who are supposed to be those who guide people to God, as if God can’t chose His prophets, this is actually a blasphemy against God and His prophets.
Muslim objections on the Bible Attributes of God
For example when the Bible says that God rested and refreshed as in Exodus 17:31, or when the Bible says that God fought Jacob and Jacob prevailed as in Genesis 32:28, or making analogies for God as a one out of sleep, Like a mighty man that shouts by reason of wine. (Psalm 78:65), or as a lioness and a bear (Hosea 13:8), or as a lamb (Revelation 17:14), or that God puts a sign in the sky so that He remembers His covenant with people that He won’t destroy them by flood. Muslims don’t accept attributing this to God, because Muslims believe that God is Almighty than being attributed that way.
Muslim objections on the Bible Shameful Stories about Prophets
Also the Bible tells that Noah got drunk and naked(Genesis 9:21), or that Aaron ordered the Jews to worship the calf (Exodus 32:2), or that Lot made it with his daughters (Genesis 19:31-36), or that Jacob lied and stole the blessing from his father (Genesis 27) or that David did what he did with Uriah and his wife (II Samuel 11), or that Solomon worshiped other gods (I Kings 11:1-11). Muslims believe that prophets are the best men, and that’s why God chose them to tell His message to people, how could they act that way?
Even if you said that they were honest in telling God’s revelation, this is not enough. If I directed you to a road, and told you that this is the right road, and then I walked in another road, would you believe me? If the company’s policy tell that smoking is in the smoking area only, and then you find your manager smoking inside the building, would anyone take it serious? Actually no one would care about the rules or policies of the company if the manager violates it. Besides, if God’s prophets are that way, why didn’t God choose better people to be His prophets? This is actually blaspheming God before it is a blasphemy against the prophets, as if God can’t chose His prophets.
These are examples of what Muslims reject in the Bible, these are not the only things Muslims don’t agree with the Bible, but these are just examples.Follow me onby
