Quranic Errors – Salt and fresh water do not mix

Quranic errors
Surah 25:53. It is He Who has let free the two bodies of flowing water: One palatable and sweet, and the other salt and bitter; yet has He made a barrier between them, a partition that is forbidden to be passed. [53] Dan Dialah yang membiarkan dua laut mengalir (berdampingan); yang ini tawar lagi segar dan yang lain asin lagi pahit; dan Dia jadikan antara keduanya dinding dan batas yang menghalangi. 3.0pt;margin-left:1.0in;text-indent:-.5in;page-break-after:avoid'>It is possible for salt and fresh water to mix and this is a scientific error. Even the writer Bucaille (of the Bible, the Quran and Science) admits, “the mixing of their waters with the salt water usually does not take place until far out at sea.” Muslim response According to Yusuf Ali, this is a symbolic statement.

Quran Errors – Quran revealed at once or in stages?

Quranic errors
Quran was revealed in stages “(It is) a Quran which We have divided, (into parts from time to time) in order that thou mightest recite to men at intervals: We have revealed it by stages.” Surah 17:106 106] Dan Al Qur'an itu telah Kami turunkan dengan berangsur-angsur agar kamu membacakannya perlahan-lahan kepada manusia dan Kami menurunkannya bagian demi bagian. See also Surah 25:32 But the Quran was also revealed all at once! Surah 97:1. We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power: Surah 97[1] Sesungguhnya Kami telah menurunkannya (Al Qur'an) pada malam kemuliaan. “Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Quran, as a Guide [Hudaa] to Mankind.” Surah 2:185 See also Surah 44:3 Muslim response Muslims go round this problem by saying that the…

Quran Errors – Marrying up to four wives

Quranic errors
The Quran allows the marrying of up to four wives if a man believes that he can treat them fairly. Surah 4: 3. If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice. 4:3 Dan jika kamu takut tidak akan dapat berlaku adil terhadap (hak-hak) perempuan yatim (bilamana kamu mengawininya), maka kawinilah wanita-wanita (lain) yang kamu senangi: dua, tiga atau empat. Kemudian jika kamu takut tidak akan dapat berlaku adil, maka (kawinilah) seorang saja, atau budak-budak yang kamu…

Quranic Errors – Egypt watered by rain

Quranic errors
Egypt is watered by rain (Sura 12:49). Surah 12 49] Kemudian setelah itu akan datang tahun yang padanya manusia diberi hujan (dengan cukup) dan di masa itu mereka memeras anggur." We may point out that more than one thousand years before Muhammad made this declaration, Herodotus the Greek historian stated: "Egypt is the gift of the Nile"! In fact, the only means of watering the crops in Egypt is the Nile. This fact is also confirmed by encyclopedias. The valley and delta region contains most of Egypt's farmland.  Without the precious waters of the Nile, Egypt would be little more than a desert wasteland.  For thousands of years, annual floods of the Nile deposited valuable soils called silts upon the narrow plain on either side of the river and upon…

Quranic Errors – Errors compiled by M. Rafiqul-Haqq and P. Newton

Quranic errors
Muslims believe that Allah revealed a book to each of Abraham, Moses, David and Jesus. "But the Book of the prophet Abraham was lost. The Books of David (the Psalms), Moses (the Torah), and Jesus (the Gospel) were changed."[1] It is only the Qur'an that was revealed to Mohammad by the angel Gabriel that was preserved, and indeed "Not a single word of it has been changed or lost. It is found today exactly as it was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed."[2] As such it is not Mohammed's personal achievement. Rather it is a divine miracle. The prophethood of every prophet was attested to by divine miracles. It is believed that the Qur'an is God's miracle confirming the prophethood of Mohammed. "The only miracle Mohammad claimed was the Qur'an ...…

Quranic Errors – The sun sets in a spring

Quranic errors
Surah 18:83. They ask thee concerning Zul-qarnain. Say, "I will rehearse to you something of his story." 84. Verily We established his power on earth, and We gave him the ways and the means to all ends. 85. One (such) way he followed, 86. Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it set in a spring of murky water: Near it he found a People: We said: "O Zul-qarnain! (thou hast authority,) either to punish them, or to treat them with kindness." 83] Mereka akan bertanya kepadamu (Muhammad) tentang Zulkarnain. Katakanlah: "Aku akan bacakan kepadamu cerita tentangnya".
