It is mentioned that one day, a person decided to inspect which was the correct religion. Since he was a master calligrapher, he decided to write each book in the best of calligraphy. After he had completed the Taurah, he presented it to the Jewish elders. When they saw the beautiful manner in which he had recorded the Taurah, they gave him a special gift as a token of appreciation.


After that, he presented the Injeel to the Christian scholars. When they saw the immense amount of hard work which he had put into this effort, they also gave him a large reward by purchasing this copy from him. Bear in mind that none of these people actually inspected the calligraphy. He then presented his work of art to the Muslims and when they saw his copy, they gave him a beating and presented him in front of the ruler and accused the person of altering the Qur’an.


The ruler then ordered that he put to death. When this was announced, only then did the person reveal the actual story. He mentioned that he himself was a Muslim and he had only done this to prove which religion was the correct and unaltered religion and this he had now proven beyond a shadow of doubt. He also mentioned that this proves that Allah Almighty had certainly protected the Qur’an because no one could actually alter even a single letter in the Qur’an. (Safwatut Tafaasir, Imam Saabuni)
