The distortion of the Torah

All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad , is His slave and messenger.

When Allaah revealed the Tawraah (Torah) to Moosa (Moses) the Jews found that some of it was against their desires and wishes, so they refused to observe its rulings. Therefore, Allaah threatened them with complete destruction as He raised Mount Sinai above them like a cloud shadowing them and ordered them to observe the rulings of the Tawraah. Allaah Says (what means): {And [recall] when We took your covenant, [O Children of Israel, to abide by the Torah] and We raised over you the mount, [saying], "Take what We have given you with determination and remember what is in it that perhaps you may become righteous."}[Quran 2:63]

When Allaah threatened them they became extremely frightened. They observed the Tawraah for some time, then they began to distort it. Allaah Says (what means):

· {And indeed, there is among them a party who alter the Scripture with their tongues so you may think it is from the Scripture, but it is not from the Scripture. And they say, "This is from Allaah," but it is not from Allaah. And they speak untruth about Allaah while they know.}[Quran 3:78]

· {Among the Jews are those who distort words from their [proper] usages.}[Quran 4:46]

From that time the Tawraah was distorted, consequently the creed of the Jews was distorted. Indeed, the Jews sanctify the Talmud more than they sanctify the Tawraah: they believe that a Jew who studies the Tawraah is doing a good act that does not deserve a reward. However, according to them, a Jew who studies the Mishnah (the text of the Talmud) is doing a good act that deserves a reward. But studying the Gemarah (the interpretation of the Talmud) is the best act.

The Talmud contains even more distorted beliefs than the altered Tawraah. In the Talmud, the Jews allege that their spirits are part of Allaah, and that their level is higher with Allaah than that of the angels. Indeed, they claim that if a person hits a Jew, it is like him hitting Allaah The All-Powerful; Allaah is high above what they claim.

Allaah Knows best.

"كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ وَلَوْ آمَنَ أَهْلُ الْكِتَابِ لَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَّهُم مِّنْهُمُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ"
"Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God. If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors."

Surah:3.Al-'Imran. Ayah:110
