Islamic Failure Series – Episode 41 – Idiotic grammatical error in the Quran


Have you ever been challenged by Muslims to bring one error in Quran? To understand this post, you have to be an Arabic speaker, and most of you aren’t! But we live in a connected world with Internet that brings information to us wherever we are, so I need you to open your favorite translator program or website, and stick the word CONTROL in it. In the output language, select Arabic. The output might give you several words, but I’m sure that it would give the following translation: سيطر

If you ask any Arabic speaker with knowledge in written Arabic, and ask him if the word “control” could be written as صيطر in Arabic, I am sure that person would correct you and tell you it is سيطر and not صيطر. The latter has no meaning! Although they might seem very similar to non Arabic speakers, these are completely two different words! If you try to translate the word صيطر even Google Translator will try to correct you by telling you: Did you mean سيطر?
لَسْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ بِمُصَيْطِرٍ
(Al-Ghashiya 88:22, Arabic – Original)

You are not over them a controller.
(Al-Ghashiya 88:22, English – Sahih International)

The image above repeats the verse above, then makes fun of it, instead of saying the Islamic exclamation Subhan Allah, it says something like Zubhan Allah


About Mike

Hello, I am an atheist because of reason and personal experience. I am a father of THREE lovely living kids and two dead embryos, married to a lovely Christian Catholic devoted woman. Yes, black and white can coexist as long as there is respect and love, which is something abstracted from any belief or religion. I do not claim absolute truth and not 100% sure that a God does not exist somewhere out there. The scientific method is what I use to connect to reality. If there is something I don't understand, then it is because i don't understand, not because god exists. In case you haven't noticed, I am a native Arab, and English is my third language (yes there is second language). I like reading the Bible and the Quran and the critics of both of them. I also love watching documentaries especially astronomy, cosmology, Quantum Physics, and new discoveries in science in general, and Physics in particular.

  1. this is a very lame attempt for someone to try to belittle the quran.
    instead why dont you focus on reading it and try to prove historical errors in it or geographical mistakes?
    retire from translation programs its not befitting for rebuttles.
    must i say that english does the arabic language no justice as one arabic word can translate into many english words and the complete understanding and strength in meaning isnt grasped.
    also not to mention the difference between dialect of arabic spoken country to country and the arabic of the quran. and the quran itself has difference dialects.

      Honey, if you want, we could discuss about it in native Arabic, you are talking to a native Arab, who was born, raised, educated in an Arab Muslim country in a Muslim school.

      Your attempt to attack the poster without any knowledge of his background, origin, and history, rather than the argument is a lame.

      Why do you also assume I never read Quran? Your last line proves your total ignorance in Quran and Arabic. There are no dialects in Quran. I wonder, if you were not a native Arabic speaker, then by your own logic, how the hell could you ever believe in it? In the other hand, if you were an Arab or do speak Arabic, then your own comment is a debunk to your argument because in Arabic the word مصيطر doesn’t exist and is clearly a mistake made by an ignorant and if you believe it is not a mistake just to exempt Quran, then welcome, you are part of the majority of close minded Muslims!

      • Rayan Zehn says:

        The Quran now comes with dialects?!!! Hahaha! Your response to that qualifies as a hitchslap!

      • Mike says:

        Yea, she wrote a typical comment from a person who doesn’t know anything about her own religion except what she has been told about, and refuses to accept reality because it destroys a thing she used to think of as perfect!
