Dr. Naik presented 22 out of many errors of the Bible, let me present a
short list of many errors of the Quran for him (or anyone) who cares to respond. All we need to prove
that the Quran is not from God is one error while even
hundreds of errors in the
Bible do not necessarily disqualify it as a message of God.
Let me make a
caveat that I do not believe any message is from God. I do not think God
sends messages or intervenes in human affairs. I am simply taking the side
This list starts with the false claims made by Dr. Naik about the
Quran. It then continues with another short list of
absurdities that exist in the Quran.
says the sun and the moon yasbahun.
This means both of them navigate or rotate around the earth and not around their
own axis as Dr. Naik has claimed.
says the universe is vast and not “expanding”. Dr. Naik is wrong
description of water cycle claimed by Muslims as miraculous is
incomplete because the stage of evaporation is missing and what
Muhammad has described has been common knowledge since man became homo
sapience. Dr. Naik says verse: 86:11
talks “specifically about the capacity of heavens to return back
rain” i.e. the stage of evaporation. This is clearly not so. This
verse is about the return of the firmament (sun, moon, start) that
happens every 24 hours.
Naik says verse 21:30
talks about the Big Bang. I showed that this verse is actually about a
Naik said that Islam is for all mankind. I showed that in verses 6:92
Muhammad said that he had come for the people of Mecca and its
surrounding and in verses 32:03
he said that he was sent to people other than those who had already
received divine guidance. According to these verses Muslims must stop
propagating their faith in the Christian West.
Naik claims that the Quran says ‘We have created the human beings
from ‘the best part of a whole’. The truth is that the Quran says 32:8
human progeny is made of a ‘despised fluid’ (ma-in maheenin).
Naik claims that no one knew that skin has pain sensors and everyone
used to think that pain is sensed by brain. That is rubbish. The truth
is the reverse. The function of brain in sensing pain is a recent
discovery. Pain was felt where pain was applied. In the old days people thought
the function of brain is to cool down the body
like a radiator and heart is the thinking organ.
Naik claims that when the Bible says the world was created in six days it
is talking about 24 hours days, while when these same claim was plagiarized by Muhammad and rehashed in the Quran
changed its meaning to "periods of time" or
"epochs". Why a day in the Bible and a day in the Quran
should be different is something only Dr. Naik knows. Despite that the
universe was not created in epochs
definition of embryology in the Quran 23:12-14
is wrong. Nutfa (sperm) does
not become embryo (which in the Qur'an is erroneously called Alaqa,
a congealed clot of blood). The role of the female egg in Quranic
embryology is missing. And bones are not formed before the flesh. Just
to mention two of several errors in these verses.
say that both the Moon and the Sun are lamps “emitting light”. Dr.
Naik simply lies when he says Nur is reflected light. Nur is direct
light and Munir is an object that emits light not something that
says… ‘Until, when he [Zulqarnain] reached the setting of the sun,
he found it set in a spring of murky water’. Dr. Nail lies when he
says this “appeared” to him. If it was only the appearance then
such a thing can appear to anyone, anywhere; why mention Alexander?
Alexander had become a legend and common folks believed that he
had conquered the world from “one end to another”. Only he, who
had been to both ends of the world, could have witnessed this amazing
phenomenon of rising and setting the sun in murky waters. These
are the waters/oceans that the ancient folk believed surround the dray
implies that stars are protectors of people. This is fairytale.
says sperms proceed from between the backbone and the ribs. This is
people be raised from dead on the Last Day to receive their punishment
and rewards 6.36,
or do they receive it right after their death? 3.169
says “He set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it
should shake with you”. Mountains do not stop the earth from shaking
with us. It is ludicrous to say if mountains were not there the earth
would have shaken by people walking on it.
says mountains are like tent pegs or stakes. This is false.
says ‘Have We [1st person]
not made the earth an expanse?’ and the verse 20.53
says "He [3rd
person] Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread
says the earth is a bed for you, and the heaven a roof. This is
obviously wrong. Neither the earth is like a bed nor the skies are
says: “And most surely there is a lesson for you in the cattle; We
give you to drink of what is in their bellies -- from betwixt the
feces and the blood-- pure milk, easy and agreeable to swallow for
those who drink.” This is rubbish. Milk is not produced from between
feces and blood. This reveals Muhammad's ignorance of anatomy.
says that ‘There is not an animal on the earth, nor a being that
flies on two wings, but forms communities like you’. No animal on earth forms communities like that of humans.
says there is a barrier between two waters “which is forbidden to
transgress”. There is no barrier between any
waters. All waters mix. .
say the universe was created in six days while verses 41:9-12
say it was created in eight days. Then again in 2:117
we are told that “He [3rd
person] saith to it: 'Be,' and it is”. These are
three different versions of creation – six days, eight days and
instantaneously. At least two of them must be satanic verses. Which
says “He [3rd person]
created for you all that is in the earth. Then turned He to the
heaven, and fashioned it as seven heavens”. This version of creation
is anachronous. This is like saying first the child was born and then
the mother. Is this another “miracle of Allah” or another blunder
The same error is found in 7:54,
contradicts 2:29 and says “He raised its canopy (sky), then He created light and darkness “and
after that He spread the earth”.
says “heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of
creation), before We [1st person]
clove them asunder?” But 41:11
says “Then He [3rd person]
directed Himself to the heaven and it is a vapor, so He said to it and
to the earth: Come both, willingly or unwillingly. They both said: We
come willingly.” So were the heaven and earth joined originally and
Allah separated them or where they separated and Allah joined them?
There is a contradiction. One of them must be a satanic verse. Which
says "Allah is He Who created seven
Firmaments and of the earth a similar number".
This is false. Neither the sky nor the Earth are made of seven
above verse also assumes that heaven and earth have wills of their own and can obey
or disobey God's orders. This is good for children story but it is not science.
same verse is
also anachronous. How can the creation of plants and animals have
preceded the unification of heaven and earth? Dr. Naik astutely saw
the error in the Bible that says the creation of the plants preceded
the creation of the Sun. But he failed to see the exact same error in
the Qur'an. If the Bible is wrong on this point, its copy i.e. the
Qur'an is also wrong.
says “And We adorned the lower heaven with lights” This is a clear allusion to
stars. Considering the Earth as the base, just as the Qur'an does, are
stars in the lower layer of the sky while the Sun and the Moon and
other planets of the solar system are above them?
say that Allah's day equal to 1,000 human years. But 70:4
says that it equal to 50,000 years.
says “Allah [3rd person]
is He Who raised the heavens
without any pillars that ye can see” and 31.10
repeats the same absurdity. 22:65
says “He [3rd person]
withholds the sky from falling on the earth except by His leave.”
Clearly Muhammad thought sky is a ceiling that can fall on earth and it
is a miracles that it does not fall.
says Allah destroyed the people of Aad in a day. 41:16
says it was days (three or
specifies seven nights and
eight days in succession? At least two of these versions must be satanic
the Last Judgment, people are divided into three groups 56:7
or two groups 90:18-19,
takes the souls at death: The Angel
of Death 32:11,
THE angels (plural) 47:27
or Allah 39:42?
many angels announced the birth of Jesus to the Virgin Mary? One angel
or several angels 3:42-45?
was the first Muslim? Muhammad 6:14,163,
some Egyptians 26:51,
or was it Adam 2:37?
food for the people in Hell will be only "Dhari" 88:6,
only foul pus from the washing of wounds 69:36,
or will they also get to eat from the tree of Zaqqum 37:62-66?
says “Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters), until they
makes it clear that Jews and Christians are unbelievers, have deluded
away and “Allah's [3rd person]
curse be on them”. And yet 5:5
says it is lawful to marry women of the People of the Book.
say the good deeds of unbelievers will not be rewarded. Yet 99:7
promises “whoso doeth good an atom's weight will see it”.
promises rewards for Christians and Jews. But then again the Quran
says they are blasphemers 5:17,
72-73, have deluded away from the truth, are unbelievers and curse
of Allah be on them 9:30.

Are all these verses from the same god? How come something that was

I stop here. It is easy for me to show 1000 errors only in the
Quran and thousands more ridiculous tales in the hadith. Remember what
Dr. Naik said: All we need to prove it is not from God is one error.
If he can't answer to all of them, it means the Quran is not a book of
revelations. However, he won't even be able to answer to ONE of them.
