The Qur’an, the greatest and everlasting miracle of the holy Prophet (PBUH), has been the target of criticism by all opposing authors in East and West. The Qur’an, however, has invited its opponents to struggle and this invitation will persist till Doom’s Day. In the second century (AH), a group of the opponents of the Qur’an suffered the same defeat as that experienced by the unbelievers at the time of the revelation of the Qur’an. This paper examines the doubts of this group regarding the Qur’an along with the responses of Imam Sādeq (PBUH) to those doubts. This will disclose the thoughts of those who raise doubts and also illustrates the role of the Shiites and the disciples of Imam Sādeq (PBUH) in defending the Qur’an. Thus, the present papers is developed in three sections: first, those who raise doubts are briefly introduced; then the defenders of the holy Qur’an are introduced and the paper concludes with the discussion of Quranic doubts and their criticisms according to Imam Sādeq (PBUH).
