A question, Mahmood<quoted text>
ISLAM & PLAGIARIZM: Here is another classic example of plagiarizm by the authors of the Koran:
Harut & Marut:
2:102 - They followed what the evil ones gave out (falsely) against the power of Solomon: the blasphemers Were, not Solomon, but the evil ones, teaching men Magic, and such things as came down at babylon to the angels Harut and Marut. But neither of these taught anyone (Such things) without saying: "We are only for trial; so do not blaspheme.........."
Encylopedia Brittanica asserts that the story itself parallels a Jewish legend about the fallen angels Shehamzai, Uzza, & Aza'el. The names Harut & Marut appear to etymologically related to those of Harruvatat and Ameretat, Zoroastrian archangels. Even Abduallah Yusuf Ali acknowledges that the source of the story is probably from the Jewish Midrash.
This has nothing to do with Christianity.
When the writers of the New Testament quoted something from a poorly translated copy of the Jewish Holy Scriptures in Greek, did they plagiarize or they did not?
Names of Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, Ishmael, Isaiah, Jeremiah, David, etc., were mentioned and stories told. Would you call that plagiarism?
Any one can read and understand that Qur'aan is referring to events of the past. How come you fail to grasp?
Instead of making foolish remarks like internet junkies do, you should think.
