Abstract In the Kitab-i-Iqan (pp. 84-89) Baha'u'llah rejects the charge that the text of the Bible has been tampered with. Many Shi'is have charged the same, accusing Sunnis of removing the proofs of Ali's appointment as leader of the community from the Qur'an.
Notes This paper examines the treatment of the topic by Western academics, but it contains no mention of the Baha'i Faith. However, the "corruption" of texts was discussed extensively by Baha'u'llah, and I believe that Baha'u'llah quoted passages from the "Shi'i" Qur'an" that are not in the "Sunni Qur'an." Scholars and wise Persian believers, please correct me if that's wrong.
