It seems to be an often-repeated saying that "there are no camels in the Koran".
But I just repeated this factoid in the presence of a guy from Syria who insisted it's not true and that there is a sura about camels in the holy book of Islam.
So I googled a bit and there were lots of inconclusive hits, the best being a quote from Jorge Luis Borges, but I still don't know the truth.
So are camels ever mentioned in the Qur'an or not? Is there a whole sura about them?
