The Qur’an comprises of 1 027 000 letters

 

القرآن ألف ألف و سبعة و عشرون ألف حرف

The Qur’an comprises of 1 027 000 letters.

 

Al Khu’i documents this falsely accusing the Ahlus Sunnah to cast doubts on the Qur’an.[1]

The truth is that this narration is a blatant lie that has been falsely attributed to Sayyidina ‘Umar radiya Llahu ‘anhu.[2]

Al Tabarani records it in al Mujam al Awsat and stated, “Hafs ibn Maysarah is the only narrator.”[3] Al Dhahabi includes it in the biography of Muhammad ibn ‘Ubaid ibn Adam ibn Abi Iyas al ‘Asqalani says, “He is the sole narrator of a batil narration,” and then quotes this narration.[4] Hafiz Ibn Hajar concurs.[5]

The Rawafid always cite Kitab al Itqan[6] as evidence since al Suyuti has reported it. But they ignore the fact that al Suyuti pointed out the flaw of the narration, i.e. Muhammad ibn ‘Ubaid ibn Adam—the teacher of al Tabarani—who Hafiz al Dhahabi censured. This is the deception of the Rawafid who conveniently omit this part of his text.
