In the Quran the word “fabrication” or “lie” (fara) is used 60 times with all its derivatives and the word “defamation” (afak) which is used in a very close context with this word is used 30 times with all its derivatives: half as many. Below is a verse that shows the semantic relationship between these words:
28-…Such were false gods they idolized;
such were the defamations they fabricated.
46-The Dunes, 28
