Contradiction in that which is from besides Allah Ta`ala


Allah Ta`ala mentions in the Qur'an:

افلا يتدبرون القران ولو كان من عند غير الله لوجدوا فيه اختلافا كثيرا

Do the kuffar not reflect over the Qur'an? Had someone besides Allah Ta`ala produced it, then they would have found many inconsistencies therein [4:82]
I had some difficulty in understanding this ayah and quite a good amount of time had elapsed. I had even enquired from my asaatizah (teachers), "Had the Qur'an been produced by someone other than Allah then would there have been many inconsistencies in it. This means that had it been a product of anyone besides Allah Ta`ala inconsistencies are a must. Thus whatever is from besides Allah Ta`ala, there must definitely be contradictions in it. However this is not seen. There are many kitabs that are not from Allah Ta`ala yet there are no contradictions in them. For example, Meezan, Nahwa Meer etc."

My ustad explained, "It refers to contradictions in relation to eloquence. One part may be extremely eloquent whereas another part may be dull as occurs in poetry. The eloquence of the Qur'an from the very beginning till the end is consistent.

I understood this answer well after studying the books of `Inayatullah Mashriqi and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani. Their books are replete with contradictions. Hence, whatever is not from Allah Ta`ala, and someone claims that it is from Allah Ta`ala, then there will be so much of contradictions in his wordings that even an ordinary layman will perceive it.
