Will the Quran never be changed?

Allah has declared that He is the protector of the Quran so we believe that Allah will protect His wonderful book. For more than 14 centuries the Quran has been preserved from change and will be preserved in the future till the Day of judgement. Not only are its words preserved but the meanings, implications, interpretations and how they are applied in daily life are all diligently preserved by Muslims. This is a unique feature of Allah’s book which no other scripture has.

The revelation of the Quran was not an isolated event. It was a stream of verses revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) throughout the 23 years of his prophethood. The Prophet (peace be upon him) appointed Companions as scribes, who wrote down verses as soon as they were revealed. Verses would be written on bone, hide or parchment. It is important to note that the Prophet (peace be upon him) would have the scribes read back the verses to him so he could proofread and ensure there were no errors.

We have seen how the Bible has been going through changes from the beginning to this day. These changes have been in its structure as well as understanding. But with the Quran, Allah has preserved it from the beginning till the end.
