Ravi Zacharias Watch Nabeel Qureshi Refuted By Shadid Lewis

Have you come across Christian missionaries throwing out their old and tired argument that the Quran asks Muslims to follow the 4 Gospels of the New Testament? It’s a very popular Christian missionary device. It’s a very deceptive and disingenuous device.

Here we see one of Ravi Zacharias’ team members, Dr Nabeel Qureshi (prior to joining RZIM), use such an argument and in the process look quite foolish and/or intellectually dishonest.

Shadid Lewis Rebukes Nabeel Qureshi of RZIM for intellectual dishonesty and/or ignorance




So Nabeel Qureshi of RZIM appealed to Surah 5:68 in order to convince Muslims to accept the 4 Gospels in the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John).


Say (O Muhammad SAW) "O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! You have nothing (as regards guidance) till you act according to the Taurât (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel), and what has (now) been sent down to you from your Lord (the Qur'ân)." Verily, that which has been sent down to you (Muhammad SAW) from your Lord increases in most of them (their) obstinate rebellion and disbelief. So be not sorrowful over the people who disbelieve. (5:68 Dr Mohsin translation)

As Shadid Lewis (Muslim Debate Initiative) points out, the Verse (5:68) speaks about the Gospel (singular – modern Christians have 4 different books which they call Gospels) and that the Verse instructs the people to act in accordance with the Gospel, Torah AND the Quran (the Quran teaches that God has no son and Jesus did not die).

Shadid also highlights some CONTEXT by referring to a Verse earlier on in the chapter (5:46)


And in their footsteps, We sent 'Īsā (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)[], confirming the Taurât (Torah) that had come before him, and We gave him the Injeel (Gospel), in which was guidance and light and confirmation of the Taurât (Torah) that had come before it, a guidance and an admonition for Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). (5:46, Dr Mohsin translation)

This Verse teaches us that God gave Jesus the Injeel (Gospel). We all know Jesus never even saw the books (Gospels) of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These books NEVER existed at the time of Jesus; they were written DECADES AFTER Jesus’ departure from the world. So clearly the Quran is not speaking about the 4 ‘Gospels’ in the New Testament. Simple logic!

It would be intellectual dishonesty on the part of the Christian to present this argument. We appeal to Dr Ravi Zacharias, Dr Nabeel Qureshi and the rest of the team at Ravi Zacharias International Ministries to ensure their staff members do not present such intellectually dishonest argumentation. I would also like to ask Nabeel to retract and denounce such argumentation.

Invitation to Christians and Jews to become Muslims

What is the common theme shared by the original Gospel, original Torah and the Quran? Pure monotheism – belief in One God!

At the end of the day, it’s incumbent on us that we worship God alone. Jesus was a Prophet of God. He was not God. Jews have not believed in Prophets Jesus and Prophet Muhammad. I urge Jews to come to Islam in order to accept the Truth.

I challenge you to debate me on Q. 5:68, along with 5:43-48 and 66. Surely you can't resist such a debate seeing how you now have Lewis' "devastating" rebuttal to expose and humiliate me.

What say you?
