Burden of Proof on the Critic
If the book is not a revelation, then it is a deception; and if
it is a deception, one must ask, "What is its origin? And where does it deceive us?" Indeed, the true answers to these questions shed light on the Quran's authenticity and
silence the bitter unsubstantiated claims of the unbelievers.
Certainly, if people are going to insist that the Quran is a
deception, then they must bring forth evidence to support
such a claim. The burden of proof is on them, not us! One
is never supposed to advance a theory without sufficient
corroborating facts; so I say to them, "Show me one deception! Show me where the Quran deceives me! Show
me; otherwise don't say that it is a deception!"
