Reading the Bible

قراءة الإنجيل

Question:

What is the ruling upon reading the Bible?

ماحكم قراءة الإنجيل ؟؟

Answer:

The revealed books [from the previous revelations] have within them a great amount of distortions and additions and (a great amount has been) removed from them, as Allaah the Most High has mentioned. Therefore it is not permissible for a Muslim that he put himself forward in reading and studying them, except if he is one who is from the firmly grounded in knowledge, and he intends to clarify that which is within them from the distortion and contradictions between them.

الكتب السماوية وقع فيها كثير من التحريف والزيادة والنقص كما ذكر الله تعالى ذالك , فلا يجوز للمسلم أن يقدم على قراءتها والإطلاع عليها إلا إذا كان من الراسخين في العلم ويريد بيان ماورد فيها من التحريفات والتضارب بينها
