Most misunderstood verse by Christians and Jews of the Quran at Q10:94

According to the Christians and the Jews they see Muslims are ignorant of their own scripture as they claimed that the Quran itself testified that the Bible is inspired, preserved and authoritative Word of God. It is proven according to them that in many ways the verses of the Quran itself says so. What does the Quran says about the Bible? Did the Quran say that the Bible is corrupted?
The following are 10 reasons claimed by Christians why the Bible should be acknowledged as the true Word of God based on direct quotations from the Quran:
1. The Quran gives the Bible many noble titles and honorable characteristics.
A guidance and light (Surah 5:44); A guidance and mercy (Surah 28:43); The book of enlightenment (Surah 3:184); Insight to men (Surah 28:43); The book (Surah 45:16); Allah’s book (Surah 5:44); The word of Allah (Surah 2:75);  A Guide to mankind (Surah 3:3).
2. The Quran states that all parts of the Bible were given by God.
And He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong). (Surah 3:3); and to David we gave the Psalms (Surah 4:163).
3. The Qur'an teaches that all scripture should be respected in the same way, and that no distinction is to be made between any of the holy books.
We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them,... (Surah 3:84).
4. The Qur'an demands that people regard the Bible as the revelation of the Lord which must be obeyed.
O, People of the Book! Ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.' It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord (Surah 5:68).
5. The Quran declares that the Scriptures of the Jews and Christians are for all mankind and not to be made obscure.
And remember Allah took a covenant from the People of the Book, to make it known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it; but they threw it away behind their backs... (Surah 3:187).
6. The Quran encourages those who follow the revelation of the Bible and declares that they will have a reward.
Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. (Surah 2:62).
7. The Qur'an encourages Christians to judge any revelation by the truth of their Scriptures.
Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel (Surah 5:47).
Note: Allah did not refer to the People of the Abrogated Scriptures" or "the People of the Corrupted Scriptures" or "the People of the Ascended Scriptures" as the Christian Scriptures were considered true and divine during the prophets time.
8. The Quran exhorted the prophet of Islam to test the truthfulness of his message against previous divine revelation.
If thou wert in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book from before thee: the Truth hath indeed come to thee from thy Lord: so be in no wise of those in doubt. (Surah 10:94)
Note: The Quran demands that Mohammed take the writings of the Jews and Christians as a model, and when he is in doubt to seek guidance in them. Surely Allah would not advise his messenger to seek understanding from the People of the Book if their Scripture was corrupted. Thus this earlier Scripture must have been preserved to make such a request.
9. The Qur'an insists that Gods revelation and words will never change.
There is none that can alter the words (and decrees) of Allah (Surah 6:34).  No change can there be in the words of Allah this is indeed the supreme felicity (Surah 10:64).
Note: Claiming that Gods Word is corrupted is a severe insult to God, implying He could not keep His Word from forgery.
10. The Qur'an declares that the Bible contains commands from God which are the foundation of sound decision; whoever disbelieves the Bible has lost his way.
But why do they come to thee for decision, when they have (their own) law before them?- therein is the (plain) command of Allah; yet even after that, they would turn away (Surah 5:43). O ye who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the scripture which He hath sent to His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those before (him) (Surah 4:136).
Based on what were proved, the Quran does not teach that the Bible is corrupted. Historically, the complete Scriptures (that was already in the Bible) were used since the end of the first century. The Old Testament Scriptures were compiled, also. Therefore, the Bible was already there. Now, we need to think of it. Did Muhammad confirm his message through the corrupted book? Therefore, Muslims must have to admit that they don’t know what they are saying.
It is true the Quran acknowledged the former scriptures were from Allah but it confirmed not without reservation. Most Christians and the Jews missed the point that the Quran is “Mohaiminan” or “Quality Control” over previous scriptures meaning one of the functions of the Quran is to expose the falsehood inserted into those scriptures. The following verse of the Quran played the role of “guardian” over previous scripture is to check the truth by the Quran and not the other way round as stated:--------------
To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. (5:48).
And this is the verse of the Quran where Allah exposed the Christians and the Jews for their role to invent falsehood and hide the truth from their scriptures as stated:-------------
O people of the Book! There hath come to you our Messenger, revealing to you much that ye used to hide in the Book, and passing over much (that is now unnecessary): There hath come to you from Allah a (new) light and a perspicuous Book, Wherewith Allah guideth all who seek His good pleasure to ways of peace and safety, and leadeth them out of darkness, by His will, unto the light, guideth them to a path that is straight.  (5:15-16)
For those People of the Book salvation is theirs if they also believe in the Quran and the apostle who brings it as the Quran clearly says believing in either one they will never achieve salvation as stated:---------
Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures), in the law and the Gospel; for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honor him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper." (7:157).
If there is no record of this in their scriptures then know that the truth has been erased from their books to support their evil agenda. The Quran had confirmed this and the truth is only from Allah in the Quran and we are being commanded not to be of those who doubt as stated:-  The Truth (comes) from Allah alone; so be not of those who doubt. (3:60).
Similarly one can check the validity of the verse Surah 10:94 intelligently whether the Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) was of those who doubt the truth from Allah as claimed by the Christians and the Jews that he went and ask those who have knowledge of previous scriptures as this verse indicated:-
If thou wert in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book from before thee: the Truth hath indeed come to thee from thy Lord: so be in no wise of those in doubt. (10:94)
The Christians and the Jews failed to see that there are two parts of the above verse the first part imply only those Muslims who are in doubt of the revelation from Allah of the Quran will make reference to those who have been reading previous scriptures but for sure the Prophet (Pbuh) will not be among those who ask those who have been reading the books before him as he was never of those who doubt as he said:-------------
Say: "O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honor, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honor; and grant me from Thy Presence an authority to aid (me)." And say: "Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish." (17:80-81)
Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say: "The Guidance of Allah,that is the (only) Guidance." Wert thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor helper against Allah. (2:120)
