  Episode 28: Orientalists and their students repeat the same claims and doubts in modern time (2/2)

Allah (Exalted be He) says: "They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allâh's Light (with which Muhammad peace be upon him has been sent? Islâmic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allâh will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kâfirûn (disbelievers) hate (it)." "It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad peace be upon him) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it)." (1)
In confirmation to this divine promise, Allah has assigned guardians to the Sunnah throughout history to guard it against the distortion, falsehood, and ignorance, therefore those guardians wrote many great writings anciently and recently in this field, of which:

There are other books and letters in this field in addition to the efforts of the famous scientific foundations and websites.
Thus, we note that the scholars of the nation are full aware of the plots set against the fundamentals and sources of the nation. Doubts and delusions will reinforce their firm belief of their religion, strengthen their refutation to these claims, and add to their determination to continue. "So that those who were to be destroyed (for their rejecting the Faith) might be destroyed after a clear evidence, and those who were to live (i.e. believers) might live after a clear evidence." (2) "And those who do wrong will come to know by what overturning they will be overturned." (3)
