This paper sets out to investigate the translations of the Quranic scientific verses in the light of modern science. It tries to provide evidence for the hypothesis that the translations of Quranic scientific verses are assailable from a modern scientific point of view. It is found that the translations are incompatible with the Quranic verses as far as modern science is concerned. The errors committed by the translators may be explained by the fact that modern translations often resume, rather uncritically, the interpretations given by older commentators. Hence, the revision of translations and commentaries in the light of modern science is recommended.
