9/11 Mentioned In a Verse in the Qur’an?

June 6, 2014

When I first came across this claim, I burst out laughing. People would go to such extreme measures to make others believe something that is a 100% lie, knowing that majority of their audience is not going to bother to do actual research. So, here I am here to tell you the truth. Is there really a verse in the Noble Qur’an that alludes to 9/11 attacks?

The claim: 

In Qur’an chapter 9, verse 11 it says: “For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah; and there was peace.”

The truth:

All you have to do is google ‘Qur’an English” or go to your local library, open the chapter 9 of the Qur’an and find this verse, English version of the interpretation of the meaning of the Arabic Qur’an:

“But (even so), if they repent, establish regular prayers, and practise regular charity, they are your brethren in Faith: (thus) do We explain the Signs in detail, for those who understand.”

This verse is in the reference to those who were at war with early Muslims: the pagan Arabs. It is simply saying that even the enemies — who might have previously been evil, transgressors and aggressors, but repented-cannot be fought after they accept Islam. After all, Muslims must not attack each other in any way, according to the Noble Qur’an.

    Its a shame of the level of ignorance in this world. Only a bigot would believe that eagle claim. Someone who already hates Islam looking for further propaganda to demonize it.

    Just send readers to Quran.com. It defaults in English and makes it easy for even the laziest person to verify.

    Such as http://quran.com/9/11

    Ramadan Mubarak and Jazakallah khairan for your efforts.
