Distortion of Holy quraan

Q:

Shiite clerics are accused of believing in the distortion of the Qur’an. Prominent scholar allama sheikh majlisi and many other scholars have been accused of believing in the distortion of Qur’an. It is said that some of the top Shia scholars have written books to prove distortion of Qur’an. Do today’s Shia mujtahids declare those who believe in the distortion of the Qur’an as infidels(kafir)???

A:

Walaykum Assalam

Please read the following article for the information regarding distortion of the Holy Quran: https://www.al-islam.org/sciences-quran-uloom-al-quran-shaykh-mansour-leghaei/lesson-4-myth-called-distortion-quran-1

Importantly, you should define what you mean by distortion (adding, removing, changing the meaning, changing letters, replacing words of the same meaning etc ?). The only distortion there is in the Holy Book is that of the change in the meaning of a word. That is, to say that one word means something other than what was intended in the Ayah.
