More Evidence Proving That Ergun Caner Is A Fake [Glossary of Arabic Terms]

By Chaud  

There are some serious errors in this PDF , no former Muslim who speaks Arabic can make these mistakes but the problem does not stop there , Ergun has made some fatal factual errors ,and major theological errors as well.

Some of these terms are defined from Ergun's theological point of view , this PDF is not supposed to be an apologetic paper , it is a GLOSSARY OF (Islamic) ARABIC TERMS ; meaning Ergun's PDF was supposed to provide definitions for Islamic terms from the Arabic language and from it's Islamic definition , not from Ergun's superstitions.

Now to the errors and objections:

Ergun Caner's PDF says :

"ALLAH: The God of Islam." 

Is this an Arabic definition or blunder from Ergun's mind ? Where can we find an Arabic dictionary or even an Islamic dictionary that defines the word "Allah" [الله] as "The God of Islam" ?

Any Muslim or former Muslim knows that the word "Allah"[الله] means "The One God" , all Arabic speakers know that "Allah"[الله] is the standard Arabic word used for God , it was used by Arabic speaking pagans and still used by Arabic speaking Muslims , Christians and Jews.

Islam does not teach the term "God of Islam" to begin with , anyone who knows the religion of Islam knows that it teaches that Allah [الله] is also the God of all people , Jews , Christians...etc , but some people have made false claims against Allah (swt) , they worship idols , men , animals , man-made doctrines...etc , this never meant that the one God Allah [الله] creator of the heavens and the earth is not their God because he created them , and on the day of judgment they will be judged by him.

This definition Ergun raises a lot of problems , if Allah [الله] means "The God of Islam" then what can explain this ?

1- The usage of the word Allah [الله] in the Old Testament:

                 [فِي الْبَدْءِ خَلَقَ اللهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ" [ﺗﻜﻮﻳﻦ 1:1"
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." [Genesis 1:1] 

So according to Ergun , in the beginning "The God of Islam" created the heavens and earth , this is coming from someone who called Allah (swt) a false idol.

2- The usage of the word Allah [الله] in the New Testament:

    [لأَنَّهُ هكَذَا أَحَبَّ اللهُ الْعَالَمَ حَتَّى بَذَلَ ابْنَهُ الْوَحِيدَ، لِكَيْ لاَ يَهْلِكَ كُلُّ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ، بَلْ تَكُونُ لَهُ الْحَيَاةُ الأَبَدِيَّةُ" [ﻳﻮﺣﻨﺎ 3:16

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." [John 3:16]

So according to Ergun , "The God of Islam" gave his one and only son ? This man rants on how Allah and Jehovah are not the same because of this in most of his public talks , his claims on this topic have been addressed here.

3- The usage of the word Allah [الله] in the trinity.

We all know the trinity is a fundamental difference between mainstream Christianity and Islam , yet Arab Christians use the word Allah [الله] to refer to God and the persons who make up the God-head.

الله الأب meaning God the Father                                                                                                  
الله الابن mean God the Son
الله الروح القدس meaning God the Holy Spirit 

So do 3 "Gods of Islam" make up the God-head Ergun believes in ? 

4- The usage of the word Allah [الله] by Ergun himself.

For example in one Ergun Caner's gibberish sprees , claiming to be speaking Turkish (or Arabic) to his father he says "Isa Ibn Allah" , so is he saying that Jesus is the son of "The God of Islam" ?

If Ergun defined the word Allah [الله] correctly , he would have never got into this huge mess. 

Ergun Caner's PDF says : 

"AYISHA: Muhammed’s wife, married to him at age six. She was also the daughter of Abu Bakr." 

This is no a sufficient definition I expect from a scholar of religion , the marriage (or engagement) was establish when she was 6 but the consummation was when she was 9 , Ergun left this detail out to deceive the people reading it in order to spread his false propaganda.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 234 (bold emphasis is mine):

Narrated Aisha:

The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Allright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, "Best wishes and Allah's Blessing and a good luck." Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah's Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 236:

Narrated Hisham's father:

Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married 'Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.
What Ergun stated was not the full definition of who Aisha is in Islam , adding "he and consummated the marriage when she was 9" is not hard , but Ergun leaves this out to spread his falsehood , or because he does not know this !

Ergun Caner's PDF says :

"BEHESHT: “Paradise.”

Oh dear God ! What is this ? This is not Arabic ! I have no idea what this word is or which language it came from.

The Arabic word for paradise is "Jannah" [جَنّة] , it used over and over in the Quran ! how can a  former Muslim not know this ? how can a person claiming to be a speaker of Arabic make this mistake unless he never spoke Arabic his entire life.

Ergun Caner's PDF says :

"DHUL-HIJJAH: Islamic Holiday, called the “Day of Arafat.” "

There are multiple factual errors here.

1- "Dhul-Hijjah" is a month on the Islamic calender , this is the month of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, again when no warfare or fighting is allowed. (source)

2- We do not have a holiday called Dhul-Hijjah , in Islam we ONLY have 2 holidays , Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha.

3- The Day of Arafat is not an Islamic holiday either , that is the day in which the people making pilgrimage stand on the Mount Arafat and worship God , it is recommend for Muslims around the rold to fast that day but all this does not make the day of Arafat a holiday.

Ergun confuses the month of Dhul-Hijjah with the holidays and religious events in it , this begs the question , did Ergun celebrate any major Muslim holiday in his life ?

Ergun Caner's PDF says :

"INJIL: The New Testament Gospels, redacted and revised in the Quran." 

1- Injil [إنجيل] in Arabic means "the good news", not "The New Testament Gospels" which is [أناجيل العهد الجديد] in Arabic.

In the Arabic usage of the word Injil [إنجيل] (and Islamic in some cases) , it can mean "The New Testament Gospels" depending on the context but if this was supposed to be a glossary of (Islamic) Arabic terms , then he should also mention that "The Injil" in Islam is the revelation given to Jesus (pbuh).

2- When Ergun says "redacted and revised in the Quran"  , this is true because we as Muslims believe that the Quran abrogates the Gospel of Jesus Christ (pbuh) and it corrects the current New Testament Gospels by bring the original message of Jesus (pbuh) and exposing its falsehood.

The reason why I am objecting to this is because this unscholarly definition does not convey sufficiently the meaning of Injil [إنجيل] in Arabic or in Islam , but leaves the reader in a state of confusion.

Ergun Caner's PDF says :

"ISHMAEL: First son of Abraham through Hagar, Sarah’s maidservant. Muslims believe Allah has a covenant with Ishmael, not Issac. Genesis 16: 1-16." 

Readers , believe me when I say I can't write a better joke than this ! Did Ergun read the Quran once in his whole lifetime ? was he a Muslim ? the answer beyond any reasonable doubt is NO !

He says "Muslims believe Allah has a covenant with Ishmael, not Issac" , this is false , we Muslims believe in the prophet hood of Issac (pbuh) and Ishmael (pbuh) , Allah (swt) made a covenant with both of them , we do not make any difference between them , we respect them both equally and revere them both as prophets who were chosen by God to deliver his divine message.

The Muslim position regarding both prophet Issac ,prophet Ishmael and all the prophets (peace be upon them all) as the Quran says :

"Say: "We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam)."" (Sura 3:84 , bold and underline is mine)

Former Muslim ? I don't think so.

Ergun Caner's PDF says :

"JIHAD: “Holy fighting.”"
This mistake is usually made by fake ex-muslims who resent Islam , just like Ergun.

Jihad in Islam has multiple and a wide definitions depending on context , but there is not a single authoritative definition that says "Holy fighting" , in the context of war , Jihad does mean to fight back the enemy in the name of God , but this is no the greater meaning of Jihad in Islam or Arabic , for more about this please read this (recommended reading before you continue)

In the Arabic language Jihad means "to strive" or "to struggle" , in Islam it means to strive for righteousness , for example it takes "Jihad" [جهاد] to resist alcohol .

The problem with Christians who adhere to the false definition is that they do not know the same word "Jihad" [جهاد] in their bible , and in the Arabic New Testaments to be specific. (Source)

Luke 22:44
وَإِذْ كَانَ فِي جِهَادٍ كَانَ يُصَلِّي بِأَشَدِّ لَجَاجَةٍ، وَصَارَ عَرَقُهُ كَقَطَرَاتِ دَمٍ نَازِلَةٍ عَلَى الأَرْضِ.

Philippians 1:30
إِذْ لَكُمُ الْجِهَادُ عَيْنُهُ الَّذِي رَأَيْتُمُوهُ فِيَّ، وَالآنَ تَسْمَعُونَ فِيَّ.

Colossians 2:1
فَإِنِّي أُرِيدُ أَنْ تَعْلَمُوا أَيُّ جِهَادٍ لِي لأَجْلِكُمْ، وَلأَجْلِ الَّذِينَ فِي لاَوُدِكِيَّةَ، وَجَمِيعِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَرَوْا وَجْهِي فِي الْجَسَدِ،

1 Thessalonians 2:2
بَلْ بَعْدَ مَا تَأَلَّمْنَا قَبْلاً وَبُغِيَ عَلَيْنَا كَمَا تَعْلَمُونَ، فِي فِيلِبِّي، جَاهَرْنَا فِي إِلهِنَا أَنْ نُكَلِّمَكُمْ بِإِنْجِيلِ اللهِ، فِي جِهَادٍ كَثِيرٍ.

1 Timothy 6:12
جَاهِدْ جِهَادَ الإِيمَانِ الْحَسَنَ، وَأَمْسِكْ بِالْحَيَاةِ الأَبَدِيَّةِ الَّتِي إِلَيْهَا دُعِيتَ أَيْضًا، وَاعْتَرَفْتَ الاعْتِرَافَ الْحَسَنَ أَمَامَ شُهُودٍ كَثِيرِينَ

2 Timothy 4:7 
قَدْ جَاهَدْتُ الْجِهَادَ الْحَسَنَ، أَكْمَلْتُ السَّعْيَ، حَفِظْتُ الإِيمَانَ،

Hebrews 12:1
لِذلِكَ نَحْنُ أَيْضًا إِذْ لَنَا سَحَابَةٌ مِنَ الشُّهُودِ مِقْدَارُ هذِهِ مُحِيطَةٌ بِنَا، لِنَطْرَحْ كُلَّ ثِقْل، وَالْخَطِيَّةَ الْمُحِيطَةَ بِنَا بِسُهُولَةٍ، وَلْنُحَاضِرْ بِالصَّبْرِ فِي الْجِهَادِ الْمَوْضُوعِ أَمَامَنَا،

Go to any English translation of these verses , somehow it will always have a positive meaning of struggling and putting effort for the truth , did the Arab Christians make a mistake ? because according to Ergun , it seems like Jesus was on an unjustified violent holy war , Paul was on an unjustified violent holy war , and all Christians are commanded to go on a violent unjustified holy war as well.

Ergun Caner's PDF says :

"JINN: Angels of Allah." 

What the.....??? This is hilarious !

Jinns are not the Angels of Allah ! where did this guy learn Islam from ? Muslims ! don't send your kids to the "madrassa" Ergun attended as a child !

The Angels of Allah in Arabic is [ملائكة الله] , Jinn is [جن] , do they look alike ? do they even have the same meaning ? how can any one claiming to be a former Muslim make this mistake ? perhaps one of Ergun's victims...oh ! I mean "students" wrote this glossary. 

Jinns [جن] are beings created from fire , invisible to the human eye , we know about them from the Quran:

"He created the human from a clay, like pottery. And the Jinn He created from a smokeless fire." (Sura 55:14-15 , bold and underline are mine)
Angels [ملائكة] are created from light according to Islam.

Ergun Caner's PDF says:

"MINARET: Prayer tower in the Mosque, where the muazzein calls Muslims for rakats."

Ergun was doing great until the last word "rakat" , only an amateur who never prayed the Muslim prayer would make this mistake.

A Muazzein calls the Muslims for "SALAH" [صلاة] (prayer) not "rakat"[ركعات] (this word is the plural of "raka" [ركعة]. )

A "raka" [ركعة] is a certain stage in the prayer [صلاة] ,  this a picture of a Muslim doing a "raka" [ركعة] :

Ergun mistakes the general prayer with a certain stage in it , and people want me to believe he was a devout Muslim ?

Ergun Caner's PDF says :

"SAWN: Fasting during Ramadan. One of the five pillars." 

 This is one of Ergun's biggest mistakes , my friend Muhammad Khan (creator of the Fake Ex-Muslims website , and the Ergun Caner videos on youtube) used a clip of Ergun using this term as if it is the real Islamic term IN ARABIC , and now he enlists this mistake here , this is not the Arabic word for fasting ,it doesn't even come close to the real Arabic term.

The word for fasting during Ramadan is [ صيام ]  (Siyyam) .
The word above in Arabic becomes [ صوان ] .

Do they even look alike ? I can't believe Ergun said this in public !


Ergun never spoke Arabic a day in his life , Ergun was never a Muslim a day in his life , this "glossary" is a beckon of intellectual dishonesty and deceit.
