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 ...…

Quran Errors – Mary’s fasting and abstinence from talking

Quranic errors
Surah 19 22. So she conceived him, and she retired with him to a remote place. 23. And the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm-tree: She cried (in her anguish): "Ah! would that I had died before this! would that I had been a thing forgotten and out of sight!" 24. But (a voice) cried to her from beneath the (palm-tree): "Grieve not! for thy Lord hath provided a rivulet beneath thee; 25. "And shake towards thyself the trunk of the palm-tree: It will let fall fresh ripe dates upon thee. 26. "So eat and drink and cool (thine) eye. And if thou dost see any man, say, 'I have vowed a fast to ((Allah)) Most Gracious, and this day will I enter into not…

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".

Quran Errors – How was Jesus created?

Quranic errors
Adam and Jesus The similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: "Be": and he was (Surat Al-Imran 3:59). Adam was not created by the word "Be" but by the breath of Allah Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I am about to create man from clay: when I have fashioned him and breathed into him of My Spirit, fall ye down in prostration unto him" (Surat Sad 38:70,71). Jesus was not conceived by the word "Be" And Mary [mother of Jesus] the daughter of Imran, who guarded her virginity (literal translation); and We breathed into [her body] of our spirit; and she testified to the truth of the words of her Lord and of his revelations, and…

Quran Errors – How do the wicked receive the record of their sinful lives on Judgment Day?

Quranic errors
One part of the Quran says that they will receive them behind their back while another part says that they will receive them on their left hand. Surah 84:10. But he who is given his Record behind his back,- 11. Soon will he cry for perdition, 12. And he will enter a Blazing Fire. Surah 69:25. And he that will be given his Record in his left hand, will say: "Ah! Would that my Record had not been given to me! 26. "And that I had never realised how my account (stood)! 27. "Ah! Would that (Death) had made an end of me! Muslim response : It is handed to the evil doers in their left hands behind their backs. For example, in Sahih Al-Bukhari, in the chapter of "Tafseer…

Quranic Errors – Is it possible to have two hearts?

Quranic errors
Sura 33:4 says that Allah has not put two hearts into any man. Yet duplication of the heart has been admitted, albeit with reluctance by Geoffrey-Saint-Hilaire and celebrated anatomists including Littre, Meckel, Colomb, Panum, Behr, Paullini, Rhodius, Winslow and Zacutus Lusitanus G.

Quranic Errors – The Teacher Who Corrected the Koran

Quranic errors
Al-Hagaag Ibn Yousof Al-Thakafi, who lived in the years 660-714 A.D., was a teacher of Arabic language in the city of Taif. Then he joined the military and became the most powerful person during the reign of Caliph Abd-Elmalik Ibn Marawan and after him his son AlWaleed Ibn Abd-Elmalik. Because Al-Haagag taught Arabic, he gave himself the liberty to change several words of Caliph Uthman's Koran, which is an indication that he did not believe that the Koran was verbally inspired or was inscribed in a "tablet preserved." We will mention but a few of the words Al-Haagag Ibn Yousof AlThakafi changed: In Surat Ta Ha 20:63, the Arabic word "Hazani Lasaherani" should be "Hazaini Lasahirieni." In Surat Al-Maidah 5:69, the Arabic word "Alsabeoun" should be "Alsabieen." In Surat Al-Maidah…

Quranic Errors – Egyptians utterly destroyed?

Quranic errors
Surah 25 35. (Before this,) We sent Moses The Book, and appointed his brother Aaron with him as minister; 36. And We command: "Go ye both, to the people who have rejected our Signs:" And those (people) We destroyed with utter destruction. 37. And the people of Noah,- when they rejected the apostles, We drowned them, and We made them as a Sign for mankind; and We have prepared for (all) wrong-doers a grievous Penalty;- 38. As also 'Ad and Thamud, and the Companions of the Rass, and many a generation between them. 39. To each one We set forth Parables and examples; and each one We broke to utter annihilation (for their sins). It is generally agreed between Muslims and Christians that the people of Noah were completely destroyed…

Quran Errors – Will Jesus burn in hell?

Quranic errors
According to the Quran, Jesus will be exalted in this World and also the Next. Surah 3:45. Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah. This means that Jesus will be honored in Paradise with God. But it contradicts another verse that suggests that Jesus will be in hell. When Muhammad ascended into heaven, he also met Jesus. However, the next verse says that if Christians worship Jesus as a false god, then that false god (e.g. Jesus) should also be in hell together with the Christians. Surah 21 98. Verily ye, (unbelievers), and…

Quranic Errors – “This book” or “That book”?

Quranic errors
002.002 YUSUFALI: This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah; PICKTHAL: This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a guidance unto those who ward off (evil). SHAKIR: This Book, there is no doubt in it, is a guide to those who guard (against evil).

This verse occurs almost at the beginning of the whole Quran and is understood by Muslims to refer to the Quran. But the original Arabic does not say “this book”. It says “that book”.  “[Zaalikal Kitab – That Book]; in it is guidance, sure and without doubt, to those who fear Allah.” Surah 2:2  According…
