Is There a Possibility of Any Mistake in the Quran?

Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel


Is there a possibility of the presence of mistakes in the Quran? Grammatical errors or mistakes in the information because it was written and assembled by humans?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

I pray you are well.

The Quran has no mistakes and has been preserved from the beginning until the Last Day. Allah (Most High) has categorically mentioned, “It is certainly We Who have revealed the Reminder, and it is certainly We Who will preserve it.” [Quran, 15:9]

Today, it can be said with complete confidence and without any fear of contradiction that the Quran is exactly in the same form that was revealed to our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). Not a single dot or stroke has changed.

I would recommend the following:

Follow this ongoing Tafsir of the Quran; also, why not begin your search for knowledge by signing up for a course:
From Revelation to Preservation: Proving the Quran is from God, and it is Perfectly Preserved.

I pray this helps with your question.
