Altering the Quraan

Q: I know that the Quran has never been changed. Did it happen in the history that someone tried to change/add words to the Quran? I know for sure if someone did it, they would fail miserably and it would be discovered because Allah protects the Quran. Just asking if someone actually attempted to change it.

A: The Qur'aan Shareef is guaranteed by Allah for its protection. If anybody tries also he will fail. Like you say that there is nothing equivalent to the light of the sun. If someone tries to make something like the light of the sun obviously he is going to embarrass himself.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
