The Human Contradiction – Contradiction

by | Jan 16, 2022

Anytime you want to prove something false, all you need is a contradiction, and the whole thing is discredited. In over 1400 years, no one has found a single contradiction in the Quran (and believe me, it would have made headlines day in and day out). And I don’t mean something that someone does not agree about; I mean two opposing positions within it.

Not only there is no contradiction, but the Quran also challenges anyone to find a kink in it or to produce something similar in its grandeur. It also brings up all the arguments of its detractors and puts them down one by one. Oddly enough, the arguments that were in vogue 1400 years ago are pretty much the same ones used today. It’s funny how man doesn’t change!

Now, as it goes for not having any contradiction. The only plausible and possible explanation is that the Quran is the word of Allah. Let’s see why.

Practically every first draft, composition, book, or any text or writing contains mistakes, errors, or contradictions. Great authors write and rewrite their work in order to get things right. They send it out to friends to check it out, editors to rearrange some things; in brief, the more input, the better are the chances of avoiding mistakes. It’s kind of like Wikipedia where the common knowledge of all is greater than the exact knowledge of few. Even school textbooks have 1st, 2nd … editions to better the learning experience.

But when it comes to the Quran, it was revealed orally and written down once recited; therefore, multiplying the possibilities of error; yet, there are none. It is pretty hard to take back words once they come out of your mouth. To advance that a person can produce such discourse in its content, style and timing is impossible.

Anyways, the Quran does not require any of the above. Even though its content is for human consumption; it is not of human origin. Therefore, common knowledge of all is not necessary to get things right; since the source of the knowledge within it, is the source of all knowledge: Allah.

That is why there is no contradiction in the Quran. A book that touches all relevant aspects of life; present, past, and future. A book that is over 600 pages long, written in perfect Arabic… And there is not one contradiction?

Allah even puts mankind to the task of finding one.

Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.

Surah An-Nisa (4 – 82)

Probability, you won’t Get the Best of Me! – Scientific Proofs in the Quran

Probability, you won’t Get the Best of Me! – Scientific Proofs in the Quran

If anyone is a betting man, he knows that most of the time he will lose; it is a question of numbers. Winning every time is improbable and practically impossible. When flipping a coin, you have one chance out of two of getting it right. 50%, not bad; but repeat it four times straight; not too confident, are you?

Let’s transpose that example to the prophet Muhammad; he got every single verifiable (with our limited knowledge to date) phenomenon right. Not only he got them right, but most of them are also explained; not just enunciated or left for interpretation. Let’s say there are about 20 scientific/natural phenomenon (Actually, more have been mentioned and others left out since a multitude of authors have done a better job than me explaining them. Plus, 20 seems like a pretty round number, and we don’t want to sound boastful either) that were elucidated 1400 years ago, by an illiterate Arab that had no aspirations to science whatsoever… When you do the math: ½ at the power 20 is ½ x ½ x½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½ x ½. That gives you the possibility of 1/1 048 576 of getting it right. That is less than one in a million probability; becoming less and less a betting man…Keep in mind, considering that the questioning is in a yes or no format; true or false to a given question (without formulating the solution and adding all the explanation that comes with it in the Quran and Hadith).

The thing is, it is not because the prophet Muhammad was an expert in astronomy, geology, chemistry, nuclear physics, biology, botany, entomology, oceanology, or even historical science that he got it right all the time. It is because the only thing he got right out of all of this is that he wholeheartedly believed in Allah. All these, verses, signs, scientific phenomenon were not explained or tackled by the prophet Muhammad; they were brought forth by Allah, the All-Knowing.

And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.

Surah Al-Anam (6 – 59)
