Scientific Errors in the Quran

1 byte added, 13:38, 2 July 2017
Other than the above verses, the Qur'an makes many claims about people and events from pre-Islamic narratives. It simply presumes or asserts that all of them were real historical figures and events. A few examples are: souls of Adam's descendants came out of his loins before their earthly birth,<ref>{{Quran-range|7|172|173}}</ref> Abraham initially built the Ka'aba in Mecca,<ref>{{Quran|2|127}}</ref> Moses rescued his followers from a hostile pharaoh in Egypt, Satan inflicted Job (Ayub) with many punishments until Allah came to his rescue,<ref>{{Quran-range|38|41|44}}</ref> Allah gave the some Psalms to David,<ref>{{Quran|4|163}}</ref> Jinns accepted Islam after listening to a Quranic recitation,<ref>{{Quran-range|72|1|4}}</ref> and so on.
Modern historians have rejected some of these stories outright; the rest of the stories either lack evidence and consensus to be accepted as truth or are dubbed as exaggerations (e.g. Moses). The burden of proof is on Allah, the Qur'an and Muslims in the light of making such claims. Unfortunately, they have been unable to provide any satisfactory proof for the same.
