Revelation is the "divine message to the prophets to guide the people" است is the basis and consistency of divine laws and the most valuable heavenly gem on the earth and has an inseparable connection with human nature and destiny. In recent centuries, with the spread of the wave of Islamic studies in the West, the hypothesis of adapting some of the contents of the Qur'an from past religious and literary texts became one of the fields of activity of Orientalists. Explaining this issue is necessary to prove the legitimacy of Islam and Quranic revelation and its superiority over all divine religions. The present dissertation is organized using descriptive and analytical methods and with a critical approach along with data collection and analysis. The findings show that Western scholars and orientalists, based on these principles and given the similarities in the Qur'an and earlier sources such as the Torah and the Bible, have hypothesized about the sources of the Qur'an, none of which is accepted by Muslims. No, their claims have methodological problems even on their own merits.
