My Dear Sohail , Now here is your chance ... to shine.

You allude to web sites that discuss such issue but you do not provide a link. But here are the problems with your bogus assertion:

1. Why should should you believe the veracity of tendentious web sites?

2. You do not know any Arabic (among other things, including reading history, Quranic tafseer, Greek, Syriac, Hebrew and for the gnostic gospels: Coptic, but you still have the chutzpah to claim that you do) now... how do you know that the rebuttals of such grammatical mistakes in the Qur'an are for real?

3. Why should I believe a web site from some Pakistani who knows no Arabic when I have sources in Arabic as in the case of Suyuti's Itiqan pages 273-274 where Suyuti does discuss (among other mistakes in the Qur'an and see also Ibn Qutayba's Ta'weel page 37) the issue of the most celebrated mistake: Ina hadhan lasahiran. You know why you avoid dealing with such mistake? ...

4. I'm sure you must believe any tradition transmitted by 'A'isha and 'Uthman. In regard to the grammatical errors in the Qur'an 'A'isha was quoted as saying: "Hadha 3amal al-kuttab 'akhta'oo fi al-kitab (the Qur'an)." Uthman was Quoted as saying: "La tughayiroha (the grammatical mistakes in the Qur'an) fainna al-3Arab satughayiruha.." .

So you tell me why should I not believe 'A'isha and Uthman and believe your likes?...

5. "Ina hadhan lasahiran is far beyond you." Now here is a very easy grammatical mistake for you: Qur'an 22:5 is: nakhrujakum tiflan! The word Tiflan should be in the plural: Atfalan! So here is an easy mistake.
