What Do the Bible and Quran Say About the Crooked?

By: Prof.dr. Ibrahim Khalil

Before dealing with the topic of the Crooked in Quran versus Bible versus sciences, it is mandatory to remember that the total words in the Bible are 788,280 while the total words in the Quran are 77,473. It follows that, the Bible is more than 10 times the Quran word-wise.
The Crooked is mentioned 16 times in the Bible and nine times in the Quran, i.e. the Bible mentions the Crooked about twice as does the Quran
In other words, the Bible has the potential of more than 10 times (word-wise) and twice (subject-wise) than the Quran to talk about the Crooked.

================================

The Crooked in the Bible:

The children of Israel are perverse and crooked generation
Deuteronomy 32:5
They have corrupted themselves; their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
Crooked and perverse nation
Philippians 2:15
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

The Israelites: The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths
Isaiah 59:8
The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.

Those whose ways are crooked

==

The crooked cannot be made straight
That which is wanting cannot be numbered
You will realize that the Bible will contradict itself and will say that the crooked will be made straight.
Also, that which is wanting can be numbered!

Ecclesiastes 1:15
That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
He hath made my paths crooked.
Lamentations 3:9
He hath inclosed my ways with hewn stone; he hath made my paths crooked.

==

God can make that straight, which he hath made crooked
Ecclesiastes 7:13
Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked?

The crooked shall be made straight
Isaiah 40:4
Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight and the rough places plain:

I will make the crooked things straight.
Isaiah 42:16
And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isaiah 45:2
I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

The crooked shall be made straight
Luke 3:5
Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;

==

Those can not offer the bread of God
Watch the Human Rights
The Bible and the Rights of the disabled
Leviticus 21:18-21
18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,

19 Or a man that is broken footed or broken handed,

20 Or crookback, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

21 No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the Lord made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

The Crooked in the Quran:

What the Prophet "shu'aib" said to his people?
The Prophet "shu'aib" is not mentioned in the Bible!

Surah: 7, Verse: 86

Do not sit in every road, threatening and barring from the path of Allah those who believed it, nor seek to make it crooked. Remember how he multiplied you when you were few in number. Consider the end of the corrupters.
==
What the Quran says to the people of the Book?

Surah: 3, Verse: 99

Say: 'people of the book, why do you bar he who believes from the path of Allah and seek to make it crooked, when you yourselves are witnesses (to Allah's guidance)? Allah is not unaware of what ye do.

==
There is no crookedness in the Quran:

Surah: 18, Verse: 1

All praise belongs to Allah, who has sent down the book to his worshiper (His servant, the Prophet Muhammad) and has not made any crookedness in it,

Surah: 39, Verse: 28

It is an Arabic Quran without any crookedness that they may guard (against evil)

==

The everlasting life is True and
There is no crookedness at the Day of Judgment

Surah: 20, Verse: 107 and 108
107: Nothing crooked or curved wilt thou see in their place.

108: on that day, they will follow the summoner, who is not crooked, their voices hushed before the merciful, and you shall hear nothing except a murmuring.
