Qur’an 13:39 - Is it possible for Allah to replace what he wants?

There are different answers to this question in the Qur’an:

Yes, Allah removes and replaces what He wills - Qur’an 13:39

“Allah eliminates what He wills or confirms, and with Him is the Mother of the Book” (Qur’an 13:39). The verses are telling us that Allah provided the Qur’an for Arabic people.

No, nothing is able to change, the words of the Qur’an - Qur’an in 6:34, 6:115

“And none can alter the words of Allah” (Qur’an 6:34). “None can alter His words” (Qur’an 6:115)


The Qur’an has a contradiction about the power of Allah. Some verses say that the Qur’an cannot be changed, while according to another verse, Allah is able to replace.
