The Pagan Pilgrimage

Quran
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqM8aUTe3As We have just left the Hajj season behind,  which means millions of Muslims traveled to Mecca to perform the Islamic pilgrimage, which is obligatory for every Muslim.  Every single follower of Islam has to perform the Hajj  at least once in their lifetime if they are able to  and this is one of the five pillars of Islam,  which means it is part of the foundation of Islamic religion and life.  This is how fundamental and important this practice is. In fact, Muhammad once listed the best three deeds  as; Believing in Allah and his Messenger,  Jihad for the sake of Allah, and third; The Pilgrimage. (Riyad as-Salihin 11:1273) But what are the origins of this pilgrimage?  This is where we face a serious problem.  Islam claims that the…

Quran Scholar Admits The Quran is Not Miraculously Unique

Quran
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PorNZd6oPZ0 The  word “miraculous” doesn't occur in the Quran. The whole notion of “ijaz” just came later. Can the Quran be considered miraculously unique in terms of its literary qualities  and its  content? Is it incomparable to other texts? It is unique  but it is not miraculously unique. Every  text is unique. It's not just because  it's the Quran. The collection of  poetry by Al-Mutanabbi (famous Arab Poet) is also unique. The Quran is definitely  unique in that there are no  similar texts in terms of content and  style and how it was compiled and  not necessarily the register of Arabic  but just that style. “miraculous” is a very loaded word. What if we  change the wording from “miraculously  unique” to “superior” or “sublime”? Can the  Quran be considered superior…

Bart Ehrman Destroys Islam in 3 Minutes

Quranic errors
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxQ7U9pPEkA How much can we be  sure about the crucifixion of Jesus and  whether he was indeed crucified? I know in Islam the teaching is that he was not actually  crucified. I think on a historical basis,  Jesus was absolutely crucified. I I think  that as a historian there's almost no doubt about that. In case your audience doesn't know, I don't identify as a  Christian. I was raised a  Christian but I'm an atheist now. I don't have a particular stake in any  of this information personally but I  think the crucifixion of Jesus is probably one of  the best attested events of his life. It's found all over the place,  in our early sources, it's even mentioned  by non-Christian sources. It's not the kind of thing  that Christians…

Scientific Miracles in the Quran Debunked

Quran
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rq0_OdIyfjc Many Muslims claim that God revealed  scientific facts in the Quran long  before modern science discovered them. Here are the main ones. Number one. The Quran describes the  fertilization process and embryonic  growth before it was known about. This is  false. The writings of Aristotle,  Hippocrates, Galen and others describe  these things long before the Quran and  the Quran is simply drawing on knowledge  that was prevalent at the time. In fact, it  appears to repeat not only the  accuracies of Greek ideas but their  inaccuracies also. The Quran says “We created man from a drop of  mingled fluid…” (Surah 76:2) This sounds very much like  the germinal fluid that Hippocrates  spoke of when writing about male and  female reproductive fluids. The Quran  also says “(Man) is  created from…

Transmission of the Quran

Quran
https://youtu.be/GIzFcq7O5kE What are these four stages of canonization that  I'm talking about? I'll give you  here a very rough outline  of the process from the beginning uh  until the 20s. In 632 AD, the prophet  dies. The  prophet’s prophetic  career spanned over 21 to 23 years and the revelation was always  coming to him until he died. One  of the questions that we ask ourselves is: The prophet did not die  suddenly, he knew when he was dying, he  predicted it, he performed the  last pilgrimage and he did not collect  the tax. There are weak accounts, weak even in terms of  from Islamic tradition, that he  probably had a prototype of the Quran. He  told some people to write down some  verses, to change the order but  we really…

43 Scientific Mistakes in the Quran

Quranic errors
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=677lMXleqWI Hi everyone and welcome.  This is the apostate prophet.  I talked a lot about how Islam is morally unacceptable  because it reduces human dignity to very low levels  and is completely contrary and  incompatible with the rights and freedoms of humans.  But that's not the only thing that makes Islam a bad idea.  There are major logical and scientific  issues in the Quran that claims to be the  unquestionable,  unchangeable, perfect word of an almighty God, Allah.  When you are a Muslim, as I used to be,  you'll learn that Islam is perfect  and that the Quran is superior to everything,  any idea, any observation, any evidence.  Therefore when the Quran contradicts obviously  with something very clear that we observe,  people who believe in this religion  go on and…

Grammatical errors in the Quran

Quranic errors
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDqd7vNzQ5g Let's explore the Quran's grammatical  mistakes. The Quran is actually full of glaring  grammatical mistakes. Even at the most basic elementary level  and despite what your Imams would like you  to believe, it's actually a well-known  and documented fact  by Islam's most prominent scholars,  for example al-Qurtubi, who mentions  in his tafsir of Surah 20:63 that a certain reading of that verse  by some of the companions  agreed with the grammar but was  different from the Quran. Those companions read the verse  differently in order to correct its  grammar,  and therefore it was grammatically  correct, but different  from the reading in the Quran. Interestingly, it is the grammatically  incorrect version  that appears in mushafs (Quran) today and is  still being recited by Muslims. Let's look at a detailed example…

Historical errors of the Quran

Quranic errors
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaIFcuOrWB8 Surah 20:85-87  and Surah 20:95-97 When Moses  goes up to Mount Sinai, a SamirI (i.e. Samaritan) builds the golden calf. It's very clear that this was a  Samaritan because Moses said to him “And  what is your case O Samiri?” The problem is there were no Samaritans  in 1400 BC.  Samaritans were not created until the  fall of the northern kingdom by Israel  by Sargon II and that was in 722 BC. How can you have Samaritans existing  700 years earlier?  It gets the mosque much too early. The mosque at the dome of the rock was built in 691 and the al-aqsa mosque one was  built in 710. Surah 17:1 of the Quran talks about  the masjid-haram (in Mecca) and the masjid al-aqsa (in Jerusalem)  but it talks…

Are There Scientific Mistakes in the Quran?

Quranic errors
https://youtu.be/n4-WSjNicoA One of the most popular arguments for Islam is what we might call the “Argument from  Scientific Accuracy.”  Muslim apologists claim that the Qur’an contains numerous scientific insights that  couldn’t have been known by Muhammad apart from divine revelation and that were only  verified centuries later.  I’ve debated Muslims on this argument, and I find it very strange, because the Qur’an  is a scientific disaster.  Everything Muhammad could get wrong, he got wrong.  The Qur'an claims that: Semen is formed between the backbone and ribs (Surah 86:6-7)The earth is flat (Surah 88:20)There are seven earths (surah 65: 12)The sun and the moon chase each other around the earth (surah 36:38-40)Human embryos are blood-clots (surah 22:5)The sky would fall on the  earth if Allah didn't hold it up (surah 22:65)Stars…
