The Qur'an praises the Bible as God's preserved truth.As a Muslim, what is your guide? If hadiths or imams differ with the Qur'an, which would you believe? Most likely, the Qur'an is your ultimate ...

Two things the Quran teaches which is contrary to Christ. (There are many others)

Surah 112. The Unity, Sincerity, Oneness Of Allah
1. Say: He is Allah, the One and Only;
2. Allah, the Eternal, Absolute;
*3. He begetteth not, nor is He begotten;
4. And there is none like unto Him.

Yet we read the "bible" about The Lord Jesus Christ

Psalms 2:7
“I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.

Hebrews 1:5
For to which of the angels did He ever say,“ You are MY Son, Today I have begotten You”? And again, “I will be a Father to Him And HE shall be A Son to ME”?

Acts 13:33
that God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that HE RAISED UP Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, ‘ You are MY Son; today I have begotten You. ’

Quoted from the Quran
~ Now then, for that (reason), call (them to the Faith), and stand steadfast as thou art commanded, nor follow thou their vain desires; but say: 'I believe in the Book which Allah has sent down; and I am commanded to judge justly between you.'" ~

A book is not the solution to the problem. The solution is a change of nature, being born again from above, of which Jesus spoke (John 3:7) and made possible by His death and resurrection. Even Jesus spoke against the Jewish Leaders of how they hold to the Torah. It is Great - but Salvation is of a renewed Heart lead to Jesus Christ

John 5:39-40
You search the Scriptures because YOU THINK that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; and you are unwilling to COME TO ME so that you may have life.

The main problem of the Quran, is that it denies the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. 
[That they said; Wee killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not].[souret Alnissa]

Based on that, Muslims deny the divinity of Jesus

While Paul says in the bible; "if the Messiah has not been raised, your faith is worthless."

This makes the bible and the Quran mutually exclusive, you have to believe one and deny the other.
