RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $1050Goal: $3000

Qur'an 114:3 Notes[edit]

Either this translation is very bad, or this is a repetition of verse 1.

Qur'an 114:[edit]

From the evil of the sneaky whisperer.

Qur'an 114: Notes[edit]

This probably refers to Shaytan's lies. Muslims are, of course, equipped with Shaytan-Proof Deflector Shields™, and are impervious to his lies.

Qur'an 114:5[edit]

Who whispers into the hearts of people.

Qur'an 114:5 Notes[edit]

See Qur'an 114:4.

From among jinn and among people.”

Qur'an 114:6 Notes[edit]
