Saudi officials confiscate 70,000 ‘fake’ Quran Copies

Fake Quran ConfiscatedAccording to The Holy Quran, there couldn’t be any changes in the Quran at all. Because Allah has taken the oath to safeguard it. So, Allah actually kept his promise and through the Saudi Govt the Fake Copies were confiscated.

Wallahu Aalam. Allah is the best Know-er of all. Allah should help us all. There always has been something or the other happening to Islam and its followers, but Allah is always with all of us. Islam has never tried harming anyone.

Saudi authorities have confiscated 70, 000 fake copies of the Holy Quran during Hajj season.

According to Saudi officials, a truck carrying fake copies was stopped near Al Jamoom village, a gateway to the city of Makkah, where hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have gathered to do Hajj.

“All the forged copies were seized after stopping a vehicle,” the officials said.

Monday’s discovery came after several tragic events leading up to this year’s hajj. Four pilgrims from Yemen were injured in a hotel fire in Mecca Monday, AFP reported. The fire forced about 1,500 people to flee the hotel.

Earlier in September a crane collapsed in Makkah, killing over 100 people and injuring over 300. The Saudi king said he would compensate the families affected by the collapse with over $260,000 each.

The Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, and all able-bodied Muslims who can afford the journey to Saudi Arabia are expected to take part at some point in their lives. The Quran is viewed as Islam’s holy book, its scripture revealed to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by God.

Researchers in Britain this month discovered that what they believe to be the world’s oldest Quran might in fact predate the founding of Islam. Researchers at the University of Oxford said they found Quran fragments in August that dated to between 568 and 645 AD.
