  • Did Allah S.W.T. confused the language of human being and scattered them abroad?

    :salams

    I read in Bible, Genesis Chapter 11, that the Tower of Babel was built, and during that time, all human being speaks one language.

    6 And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.

    7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.”

    So, did Allah S.W.T. really caused human beings, spread across the earth, during that time? Why did not the Al-Quran mention much about this event? The only reference I found was in sura 2:102, which speaks about Harut and Marut. Was the tower really built in the past?

    Jazakallah khair, for reading my post.

    Don't take what the bible says as truth, all you need to do is learn the Quran.
    As for this verse, if read in context, you would see that the bible makes the false and blasphemous claim that Allah fears what the humans could achieve, and that in order to prevent them from reaching the heavens, he confused their language and spread them apart on the earth.

    Here we are, sitting with one another, with plenty of skyscrapers and no one has reached heaven. Do they really think Allah fears them?

      So, how is that there are many languages in this dunya? Does the Al-Quran mentions this? I think Al-Quran also mentions about Firaun building a tower, to reach heaven.

        Well everyone speaks differently and different pronunciation so as time goes on, different dialects and different languages were born.

          The Torah and The Bible were indeed sent by Allah to the ancient Prophets, among other books. However, as is customary of mankind, the word and law of God was continually corrupted each time shortly after revelations until Allah sent the final revelation or testament, The Qur'an. So we must always take what we read from the older and now null and void scriptures with a pinch of salt. Whenever the Qur'an or hadiths refers to ancient peoples or buildings we can always see there remains or stories of them that have survived to this day. The pyramids were created before Islam was revealed, they still exist. The people who carved their houses into the mountains (Petra). The tower of Babel isn't mentioned, to my knowledge, in the Qur'an or hadiths. As for why we have different languages, Allah says in Chapter (49) sūrat l-ḥujurāt (The Dwellings) "O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted."
