Corruption is generally meant 'bribery' because this is most prevalent in our society. e.g.
1. guilty of dishonest practices, as bribery; crooked: a corrupt judge.
However from what I read in the Quran, I believe 'corruption' primarily refers to the following;
2. debased in character; depraved; perverted; wicked; evil: a corrupt society.
3. made inferior by errors or alterations, as a text.

The concept of 'corruption' within the Quran as in 2 above, i.e.
2. debased in character; depraved; perverted; wicked; evil: a corrupt society.
3. made inferior by errors or alterations, as a text,
is demonstrated in the following;

Here is an interesting take on 5:32-33 relating the relevant meaning of 'corruption' in the Quran.

.......................
In order to portray Islam as a wonderful religion, Muslim taqiyah tacticians, including President Obama, will always quote the verse 5:32, which says,
"We decreed for the Children of Israel that
whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and
whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind."
Verse 5:32 is a teaching of mass extermination and genocide. When President Barrack Obama gave his speech in Cairo, he quoted from Verse 5.32 "whosoever killeth a human being, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind."

Isn't this a wonderful teaching from a wonderful God worthy of quotation by the President? Wait a moment while I grab my handkerchief and clear the tears from my eyes. It is just such a beautiful teaching. "whosoever killeth a human being, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind." Only a true God could create such a teaching of love. Could provide such guidance for mankind. A divine, timeless teaching worthy of a divine, timeless God.

But wait a moment. The President did not quote Verse 5:32 correctly. He left out a most important part of the teaching. God has created in his infinite wisdom two exceptions to his teaching.
"whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind,"
We can killeth a human being for manslaughter and corruption in the earth and it will not be the killing of all mankind.


And what does the exception "corruption in the land" mean. All human beings who do not convert to Islam have declared war on Islam and Allah, are a danger to Allah, and therefore have created corruption in the land and must be murdered. All Apostates of Islam by rejecting Islam are creating corruption in the land. Muslim women who demand equality with men are creating corruption in the land. All Muslim girls who refuse to obey their fathers by adopting Western culture are creating corruption in the land. And on and on.

President Obama quoted Verse 5:32 in his Cairo speech as a symbol of the wonderful, wonder of Islam. The President quoted a teaching that justifies the mass murder of 305,000,000 Americans who are non-Muslim. This is a teaching of madness masquerading as a teaching of love. And how are the kafirs to be murdered for making "corruption in the land." Read the following Verse 5:33



Verse 5:33 says:
"The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom;"
Teachings as contained in this verse – "they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land" – are cruel and barbaric in nature. When those teachings are presented as God's, it becomes extremely evil, no better than those Hitler had committed.

THE 10 MOST DIABOLICAL EVIL TEACHINGS IN ALL HUMAN HISTORY :: Reader comments at Daniel Pipes
Submitted by Jake Neuman (Germany)



I have marked 23 verses in the Quran related to "corruption*" and it variously refer to evil deeds committed by infidels which refers to:
*"mischief and public calamities; such as famine, pestilence, droughts, shipwrecks, &c, or erroneous doctrines, or a general depravity of manners."- Sale.

In addition, it is also implied the Jews and Christians are also corrupters committing corruption when they are accused of changing the essential element of what is deemed original Islam of Abraham.

The above is a good counter to Muslim apologists who often quote this verse to justify that Islam is a religion of peace.
