Koran 9:11 Refers to the American Military Action in Iraq-Fiction!

 

 

 

bulletSummary of the eRumor
A verse in the Koran, which happens to correspond to the date of the Attack on America, predicts that "the wrath of the Eagle" would be felt throughout the lands of Allah.
bulletThe Truth
This is a hoax.
The quote is not from anywhere in the Koran (or Quran).
Chapter 9 verse 11 actually says "But if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, they are your brethren in faith; and we make the communications clear for a people who know."  (M. H. Shakir translation)

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

This is kind of strange. Makes you wonder.

 Verse from none other than the Quran.

 Prophetic?

 A verse from Muslim teachings.

 Quran ( 9:11) -- For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a
 fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands
of
 Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more
 rejoiced; for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah; and
there
 was peace.
