"It amuses me that someone whose own Testaments (both ‘Old’ and ‘New’) are awash with allegory should quibble at the presence. in the Qur’an, of that same literary device."

-Niblo

But then again. Neither Jews nor Christians claim of their respective scripture that it is the unadulterated Word of God. Muslims do just that of the Quran therefore elevating it to a degree far superior to that of the Bible NT and OT.. It therefore should be scrutinized to the degree of that of the status it claims for itself.

The Bible certainly is not the ‘unadulterated Word of God’; nevertheless Jews and Christians have based their respective religions upon it….allegories and all!

I’m all for scrutinising the Qur’an. I draw the line at saying that Allāh (Subḥānahu ūta'āla) can speak only as I (we) wish Him to speak. Would you deny Him the right to use allegory?    

By the way, in order to scrutinise something - anything - in a thorough and meaningful way one needs to have understanding of that something. The more we understand the better our scrutiny will be; and the more likely we are to be taken seriously by those whose understanding is greater than our own.
