2:89-91 Quran Confirm the Torah

And when there comes to them a Book from Allah, confirming what is with them,- although from of old they had prayed for victory against those without Faith,- when there comes to them that which they (should) have recognised, they refuse to believe in it but the curse of Allah is on those without Faith. (2:89 by YUSUFALI)

a book from Allah is Quran and this verse is pointed to the Jews,saying that Quran confirm what is with them.
what is with them is Torah.
Basic math will lead us that Muhammad say that Quran confirm the Torah!

Muslims nowadays can't accept the idea that Quran confirm the Torah,saying the Torah was corrupted days before Muhammad and the Quran came to correct the corruption of the scripts,is this verse can tolerate this?

lets do a logic exercise:
If Jews,in Muhammad days,had a corrupt script - the verse should say that Quran came to correct what is with them!!!
The verse say implicit that Quran came to confirm what Jews had - Torah!!!

There will be muslims who would say that the what is with them isn't about the Torah,the script but about the revelation of the prophets like what YUSUFALI translate in 2:41
And believe in what I reveal, confirming the revelation which is with you

The answer for that is in 2:91
When it is said to them, "Believe in what Allah Hath sent down, "they say, "We believe in what was sent down to us:" yet they reject all besides, even if it be Truth confirming what is with them.

In this verse the Jews say that they only believe in what was sent down to us ,that can't be interpreted elsewhere - Jews Believe only in Torah.
Muhammad say :even if it be Truth confirming what is with them.

So Muhammad say implicit that the Quran confirm the Torah!

Allah says in the Qur’an what means:
*{So woe to [the ones] who write the Book with their hands; thereafter they say, “This is from [the providence of] Allah.” That they may trade it for a little price; So, woe to those for what their hands have written, and woe to them for what they have earned.}* (Al-Baqarah 2: 79)

What Allah says in the verse quoted by you means that the Rabbis of Jews were aware of the truth of Muhammad as prophet provided in Torah.And they used to tell that to the Mushriks-polytheisets of the Arabs that a prophet will come on earth who will be victorious in the Arab world.And then they ie the Jews will kill them the polytheists .so if they want that be safe then they pay money to Jews .But when Muhammad -peace be upon him was bestowed the prophethood the Jews simply denied the truth because Muhammad SAWS was not from among them .
May Allah guide us all.

Quran is complete code of life its teaching are thumb rule for all Muslims and their coming generations. Every aspect of life is defined with all possible queries and solutions. You think of any subject it must have clear and practical elaborations from Quran. Great post, may Allah bless all of us.

Quran is the complete code of conduct so as a Muslim we need to do Quran recitation and reading on daily basis and also need to understand its philosophy with tafseer.
