Sura 16
Aya 103
وَلَقَد نَعلَمُ أَنَّهُم يَقولونَ إِنَّما يُعَلِّمُهُ بَشَرٌ ۗ لِسانُ الَّذي يُلحِدونَ إِلَيهِ أَعجَمِيٌّ وَهٰذا لِسانٌ عَرَبِيٌّ مُبينٌ

(Saheeh International)

And We certainly know that they say, "It is only a human being who teaches him [i.e., the Prophet ()]." The tongue of the one they refer to is foreign,1 and this [recitation, i.e., Qur’ān] is [in] a clear Arabic language.
  • Having seen the Prophet () speaking with a foreign man on occasion, the Quraysh accused him of repeating the man's words.
