Dr Pipes,

There is a famous Shi'a cleric his name is Skeikh Ahmad al-Qabanji or شيخ احمد القبانجي. He is very critical of the Qur'an and he talks about mistakes in the Qur'an including mistakes in Arabic language grammar, syntax and spelling of perfect Arabic words, mistakes in science and history and readings of al-Mufasereen. He even says that Muhammad did not bring anything new and all Muhammad did was to recycle the stories of the Jews and Christians. He also wonders "how come the Qur'an does not mention anything about the Buddha or Hinduism and there are no black prophets in Islam"

Here is a link to one of his youtube videos. I urge your readers to check it. I realize that it is in Arabic. However, the readers can use googletranslate and read the comments made by the viewers. Many Muslims are questioning Islam and the Qur'an and agree with him.


The title of the video is: القبانجي يأتي بعشر اخطاء علمية في القران or al-Qabanji mentions/bring 10 scientific mistakes in the Qur'an

The real question is why would a Shi'a Sheikh be critical of the Qur'an and of Islam? I really wonder if he is an apostate but again I can only guess.
