are many numerical contradictions in the Quran. Can God make so much
error in doing simple calculations?
many days did it take to create Heavens and Earth ?
7: 54 Your gurdian-Lord is Allah
who created the heavens and earth in Six Days
10: 3 Verily your Lord is Allah,
who created the heavens and earth in Six Days
He it is Who created the heavens and earth
in Six Days
Quran-25:29: He Who created the heavens and earth and all that is
between, in Six Days
above verses clearly state that God created the heaven and Allah created
the heaven and the Earth in 6 days. But the verses below stated-
41: 9 Is it that ye deny Him who
created the earth in Two Days ?
41: 10 He set on the (earth)
Mountains standing firm high above it, and bestowed blessing on the
earth, and measured therein all things to give them nourishment in due
proportion, in FOUR DAYS…
41: 12 So He completed them
(heavens) as seven firmaments in Two days and …
do the math: 2(for earth) + 4(for nourishment) + 2 (for heavens) = 8
days; and not 6 days
mistakes you can see in the verse: Quran
4: 11 - 12, and Quran
4: 176 in inheritance law. In these verses one can see the
total property after adding all distributed parties adds up more than
the available property, i.e., totals become more than 1 which are: 1.125
and 1.25. How come ? A gross mathematical errors, is not it ?
Days Equal to 1000 Years or 50,000 Years?
22: 47 A day in the sight of the
Lord is like a thousand years of your reckoning. Quran-32:5: To Him, on
a Day, the space whereof will be a thousands years of your rekoning
70: 4 The angels and the spirit
ascend unto him in a day the measure whereof is Fifty thousands years.
which one is it? Is the day of Allah equal to 1,000 earth years or
50,000 earth years?
of the Heaven and Earth
one was created first? As you will see in the verses below, Allah at one
time says that Earth was created first and another time he says that the
Heaven was created first.
2: 29 It is He who hath
created for you all things that are on Earth; THEN He turned to the
Heaven and made them into seven firmaments (Skies)….
79: 27 - 30 Are you the
harder to create, or is the heaven that He built? He raised the height
thereof and ordered it; and He has made dark the night thereof, and He
brought forth the morning thereof. And after that, He spread (flattened)
does it match modern science? Do you believe that, Earth was created
first, after that, God created Heaven? Modern science tells us that? Or
How come SEVEN firmaments (layers)? Modern science tells us that,
actually there is no such thing Sky is no “roof” over us. It is only
a space with no known boundary at all. These verses simply reinforce the
ancient idea of ROOF over us which is called SKY, is it not so? How
teaches us that the Sun sets in a muddy spring:
18: 86 Till,
when he (the traveller Zul-qarnain) reached the setting-place of the
Sun, he found it going down into a muddy spring…
18: 90 Till, when he reached the
rising-place of the Sun, he found it rising on a people for whom We had
appointed no shelter from it.
scientific errors here! Firstly, it is scientifically accepted fact
that, the Sun never go down in a muddy spring. Secondly, this seems to
presuppose a FLAT Earth, otherwise how can there be an extreme point in
the West or in the East? A sunrise there would be basically just the
same as at any other place on this earth, at land or sea. It would still
look as if it is setting “far away”. It does say, that he reached
THE PLACE where the Sun sets and in his second Journey the place where
resting place for Sun!?
36: 38 And
the sun runneth on unto a resting place for him. That is the measuring
of the Mighty, the Wise.
36: 39 And for the moon We have
appointed mansions till she return like an old shrivelled palm leaf.
36: 40 It is not for Sun to
overtake the moon, nor doth the night outstrip the day. They float each
in an orbit.
is indeed a big scientist. Where is sun and where is moon situated? Can
anybody tell me how they could collide/meet/overtake each other? Are the
sun and the moon neighbors to each other? I have the answer for this
error: Ancient Allah saw (bare eye observations) sun and moon traveling
from east to west seemingly in the same Sky area or same path, without
colliding, causing day and night etc. Allah hardly could imagine that
all these phenomena are simply due to Earth’s rotation and NOT by
Sun’s rotation. Sun is stationary for Earth, because earth is stuck in
the sun’s Gravity, like we are stuck in earth’s gravity. Allah never
says any where in the whole Quran that, EARTH ROTATES. Perhaps Allah
could not feel earth’s rotation.
resting place for sun WAS CONFIRMED BY HADITHS?
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 421
Sahih Bukhari Hadiths: Abzur Ghifari (ra) narrated: one day Prophet
Mohammad (pbuh) asked me, “Abzar do you know after setting where does
Sun go?” I replied, I do not know, only Allah’s apostle can say
better. Then Prophet (SA) replied, “After setting, the sun remains
prostrated under Allah’s Aro’sh and waits for Allah’s command for
rising again in the East. Day will come when sun will not get permission
to rise again and Qeyamot will fall upon Earth”.
anybody tell me what is it? It was the superstitious belief of ancient
people reflected in the Quran and Hadiths by Allah. A 10-year-old boy
would not tell such fairy tale story today.
Allah Created Stars!
gives us further scientific knowledge by telling us that the stars were
created by Allah as missiles to throw at the devils:
And We have (from of old) adorned the
lowest heaven (sky) with lamps, and We have made such (Lamps as)
missiles to drive away Satans…
37: 6-8 We have indeed
decorated the lower heaven (sky) with beauty (in) the stars, (for
beauty) and for guard against all obstinate rebellious Satans. So they
should not strain their ears in the direction of the Exalted Assembly
but be cast away from every side.
the stars are nothing but missiles to throw at devils so that they may
not eavesdrop on the heavenly council. Once again we find how Allah was
high on his superstitious weirdness.
Sky/Heaven A ROOF or Canopy Over the Earth?
21: 32 And We have made the sky
a roof withheld (from them). Yet they turn away from its portents.
31: 10 He hath created the
heavens (Skies) without supports (pillars) that ye can see, and hath
cast into the earth firm Mountains/Hills, so that it quake not with you;
and He hath dispersed…
2: 22: Who has made the earth
your couch, And the heavens (Sky) your canopy
science tells us- whole thing around the earth is space and there is no
boundary even if we go Billions of light years away in all directions.
Questions are: When there is no sky above us then how in the world, it
needs pillars for support? Do we really have a roof above us? Is there a
canopy above the Earth? Is there anything called above or beneath us?
Are mountains there to prevent Earth from shaking? Give me a break!
again Allah considered sky as roof over the Earth, which will
broke/shattered during dooms day
78: 19 And the heavens (sky)
Shall be broken (opened) as if there were doors opens…
82: 1 When the Sky is cleft
69: 16 And the sky will be Rent
asunder, for it will That day be flimsy (soft)
81: 2 When the stars fall,
losing their luster.
Ali comments in his Tafsir: beautiful blue-sky overhead (which we take
for granted in sunshine) will be shattered to pieces. Modern science
tells us that there is no such thing as roof/sky or any canopy over the
Earth; rather all around Earth is a limitless space. Only Allah knows
what will break/shatter or will get soft/flimsy or how doors will open ,
there is no walls, where from doors will come? In some Ayats Allah
threatened kafirs by saying: “I (Allah) will throw broken pieces of
sky over your head.”
Sun Rotate Around the Earth?
31: 29 Seest thou not that Allah
merges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night; That He has
subjected the sun and moon (to His law), each running its course for a
term (time) appointed.
21: 33 It is He who created The
Night and Day, And the Sun and Moon; each of them Swim (float) along in
its own course.
mentioned above could be found over and over again and again almost in
every pages of Quran. Because, Allah standing in the open Arab desert
saw very well that, every morning SUN is rising from the East and
gradually (appointed time or fixed time) setting to the West, and as a
result, day and night follows. Allah truly mentioned this wrong
knowledge (sun moving) of pre-historic people. Every time Allah
mentioned Sun & Moon, He mentioned day & night, as if it is due
to sun’s movement day and night follows. But surprisingly, all the
hypocrite Mullahs giving false credit to Allah by saying: look Quran
told about sun’s movement 1400 years ago which modern science only
found out now. In real world, sun takes 225 millions of years to make
just one complete circle through the solar Universe. And obviously this
movement of sun has nothing to do with DAY & NIGHT of the earth.
Actually, Sun is stationary in relation to the Earth, because the Earth
is stuck to the giant gravitation force of the Sun, and the Earth also
moves along with the Sun wherever it goes, just the way we are stuck to
the Earth’s gravitation force and do not feel its movement at all.
then, Allah was telling the Sun’s movement again and again. I have
already mentioned above, why Allah was hysteric about the Sun’s
movements. Now dishonest Mullahs are claiming science here. I wonder,
why Allah has to mentioned about the Sun’s 225 millions year journey
(which is even unimaginable to mankind) to tell about day and night?
What relation Sun’s movement has with the day and night?
Earth Spread Out Like Carpet (flat)?
15: 19 And the earth We have
spread out (like a carpet); set thereon Mountains firm and immovable;
78: 6-7 Have We not made the
earth as a wide expanse, And the mountains as pegs (anchor)?
was sure that earth is flat like a carpet and mountains are there to
anchor the earth so that earth does not shake with us. Allah is really
Man Created From Clotted Blood?
Then fashioned We the drop (semen) a CLOT OF CONGEALED BLOOD then
fashioned We the Clot a little lump (foetus), fashioned We the little
lump into bones, then clothed the bones with flesh, and then produced it
another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of Creators. ( Bengali
translated Quran said: “Zamaa’t Raokto theeke Manoosh banieesi”
And this Ayat has been repeated again and again throughout the Quran )
Quran-75:38: Then he becomes a CLOT; then (Allah) shaped and
96: 2 Created man, out of a mere
clot of congealed blood
are serious scientific problems here:
clot cannot grow into anything. This idea also came from the Greek.
Aristotle erroneously believed that, humans are originated from the
action of male semen upon female menstrual blood, which is absolutely an
incorrect assumption. Quran’s assertion on Clot (alaqa) is completely
wrong about human development, since there is absolutely no stage during
which the embryo consists of a clot. The only situation in which an
embryo might appear like a clot is during a miscarriage, in which case
the clotted blood that is seen to emerge (much of which comes from
mother) is solidified and by definition no longer alive. Therefore, if
ever an embryo appeared to look like a clot it would never develop any
further into a human; it would be a dead mass of bloody miscarrying
flesh. Since Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had some thirteen wives it is
entirely possible that he would be very familiar with miscarriages.
science tells us that, the formation of human embryo is a seamless
continuation from conception to birth; hence there are no hard- and-
fast boundaries of stages as Quran describes. Quran describes 4 stages,
which matches exactly with Galenic description of development of human
embryo (which was proved wrong by modern science).
of bones and clothing of bones with flesh: According to modern
embryologists including Prof. Moore, the tissue from which bone
originates, known as mesoderm, is the same tissue as that from which
muscle (flesh) develops. Thus bone and muscles begin to develop
simultaneously, rather than sequentially (as the Quran is telling us).
Moreover, most of the muscle tissue that we humans have is laid down
before birth, but bones continue to develop and calcify (strengthen with
calcium) right into one’s teenage years. So it would be more accurate
if the Quran had said that muscles started to develop at the same time
as bones, but completed their development earlier. The idea that bones
are clothed with flesh is not only scientifically completely
wrong/false, but was directly copied from the ancient Greek doctor
the idea of saying: “made into bones and clothed the bones with
muscle” came from the technique of making animal statue out of rod and
cement or mud. People usually make the skeleton (out of rod or stick)
first and, then cover it up with cement or mud. This is scarcely a
scientific description of embryonic development. It is rather a
description of an unlettered man.
Religion Compulsive Or Is It Not?
02: 256 There is no Compulsion
9: 29 Fight those who do not
profess the true faith(Islam) till they pay the polltax (jiziya) with
the hand of humility.
9: 5 Then, when the sacred
months have passed, slay the idolators wherever ye find them and take
them captive, and besiege them and prepare for them each ambush….
47: 4 When you meet the
unbelievers in the Jihad strike off their heads….
2: 191 And slay (kill) them
wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned
you out such is the reward of those who suppress faith.
8: 65 O Apostle ! rouse the
believers to the fight of….unbelievers.
often apologetics claim that, Islam is a religion of peace and there is
no compulsion. Yet punishment of an apostate in Islam is, of course,
very many Ayats Allah claimed that, He has given this Quran in the easy
and clear language so that, it will not be difficult to understand by
the ordinary Arabs.
44: 58 Verily, We have made This
Quran easy in the tongue, in order that they may give heed.
matter which translated Quran we read, the Quranic materials remain the
same to us and every sentence is self explanatory and it does not take a
rocket scientist to comprehend what is the message Allah wanted to
transmit for Arabs. Yet, bigot Mullahs will always blame translators for
Quranic contradictions/errors/inconsistencies etc. and will try to find
lame excuses to cover up Allah’s ignorance.
Holy Qur’an is full of inaccuracies, contradictions, inconsistencies,
redundancies, no chronology or chapters, grammatical errors, etc. One
can find hundreds of contradictions/errors/inconsistencies in the Holy
Quran. The above-mentioned Ayats are just selected samples from the
Quran. But still it is a miracle to those who are blindfolded bigots.

of the eye; the more light you pour upon it, the more it will
contract.”- Oliver Wendell Holmes
