Dhimmi No More,

Thank you for adding more proofs of the alterations that one can find in the Qur'an. Yes, it's dire that even the tafsirs contain these modified words. I find إِبْرَاهِيمَ in the tafsir you have provided me with.

I guess that Abraham is one of the most important figures in Islam, so there was a need to change his name? Once again, we have to cite the Salawat dua when Muslims offer their prayer asking for blessings UPON (that in fact it wasn't upon, already discussed!) Muhammad's family and also Abraham as well. No other word different than Ibrahim can fit in this prayer...

Let me copy this dua so you can check that the word they use for Abraham is إِبْرَاهِيمَ:

ٱللَّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ ٱللَّٰهُمَّ بَارِكْ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ

This dua is slightly different depending on the hadith you're checking out. In this case, this can be found in Sahih al-Bukhari 635. But in any case, you'll find إِبْرَاهِيمَ. You have spotted another complex issue.

About Mr Khattab's Clear Qur'an, yes, we should dismiss it. I love your review of it! Thanks for taking the time to analyse it.

Have a very nice weekend!
