  1. Salaam brothers and sisters, Bismillah I'm in a discussion with a Christian who is challenging me on the "fallacies" of the Qur'an, and has picked out Surah Ta Ha 20:85-95 with regards to the word Samiri. His understanding is that it means Samaritan and I see in some English translations of the Qur'an it is mostly as Samiri. His point is that Israelites led astray by a "Samaritan" is a fallacy because the Samaritans as people did not exist until 500 years after Moses (عليه السلام) when the city of Samara was founded. By implication he means that this points out that the Qur'an is false and that Muhammad(عليه السلام) has gotten this wrong. My thoughts are that the Word of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) are not fallacious and can only be considered Truth as revealed to Prophet Muhammad (عليه السلام). I'm still learning and reading the Qur'an on my own - and nowhere near an expert but I believe the Revelations to Prophet Muhammad (عليه السلام) to be True. I do not know Arabic very well. I do understand however the Qur'an was specifically revealed to the Prophet (عليه السلام) in Arabic and that what was revealed was always intended to be there by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I was reading "Stories of the Prophets (Peace be upon them)" by Imam Imaduddin Abul-Fida Isma'il Ibn Kathir Ad-Dimashqi where its commentary states page 418 regarding Musa(عليه السلام) and the Israelites being led astray: I am wondering if the name Samiri is by coincidence just happens to be similar to the word Samaritan? From my own understanding the Samaritans were a people who through the passage of time since Moses(عليه السلام) were themselves Jewish but intermingled with other Kingdoms of their time and took polytheists for their spouses. When they were brought together again they were told that in order to be accepted in the religion of Moses (عليه السلام) they had to leave their spouses, but it also seems that they never fully seemed to integrate themselves back into the Jewish way of life. They remain observant only of the Pentateuch (and none of the Prophetic Writings), and considered to be non-Jewish by the rest of the Jews and inhabited the region known as Samara. So Samaritan practices were not the same as Judaic practicices but still maintained that they were keepers of original Mosaic Law. I am wondering if Samiri then is more of a descriptive adjective to describe a role rather than to describe as an ethnicity as a thread on Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and Hasan al-Basri seems to suggest: Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and Hasan al-Basri (ie someone who comes in the name of something, in this case the follower of Musa(عليه السلام), but in deed a corrupter of religion) I hardly know anything about Hasan al-Basri so please forgive any and all my ignorance on the matter. Anyone have any thoughts on Samiri? Thank you again for your time and patience. Alhamdulilah!
