    do the scots have a different language then the british
    (well slightly yes but in terms of slang and the welsh do) but the differences are resolved when applied in context
    Smiley
    secondly the bedoins of quraish fought for 3 days straight over 1 camel going into someone elses territory

    yet these arnt bedoins but what was the fight at the time of uthman and ali

    due to little differences enlarged by ignorance

    (not saying uthman or ali were wrong/ignorant)

    It makes no difference if the general language is the same. 7 different qurans were given, each with differnces to the other. The preservation argument is therefore invalid since those 7 branched off into many more versions and from all those versions i believe 2 remain. (if memory surves me right)

    My Rules:
    1. I know bullshit when I see it.
    2. "Smart" comments will be ignored.
    3. Comments which aren't worthy of my time will be ignored.
    If I do not respond to your comment then it has fallen into the above categories.

    if the general language is the same then the context is the same
    plus the seven were destroyed and only one was kept at uthmans time please watch the yasir qadhi uthman video

    Sooooo...... let me get this straight. The quran we have today is caliphate uthman's subjective opinion of what some people were supposed to have remembered decades before about a man they once knew who had died some decades earlier who said that an angel said a god had told him?

    That is at least three degrees of separation from the alleged original word.

    Sounds like 'my mate once told me that he knew a guy, who had a friend that said his great grandfather once claimed to have known a guy who met an angel that told him what god wants'

    Hardly 'straight from the horse's mouth' is it?

    I am better than your god......and so are you.

The Sana'a palimpsest is one of the oldest Qur'anic manuscripts in existence.[1] It was found, along with many other Qur'anic and non-Qur'anic fragments, in Yemen in 1972 during restoration of the Great Mosque of Sana'a. The manuscript is written on parchment, and comprises two layers of text (see palimpsest). The upper text conforms to the standard 'Uthmanic Qur'an, whereas the lower text contains many variants to the standard text. Radiocarbon analysis has dated the parchment containing the lower text to before 671 AD with a 99% accuracy.

Many more manuscripts have been dated from the period 1st / 2nd century of hijra. We will be showing only a few examples below.

    When studying introductory course in usool al tafseer, we went very briefly through the compilation of the Quran and the 7 different variations. According to Muslim sources, the Quran was successfully compiled, even if many of the "Reciters" had died, and the Quran was still preserved because "it says so in the Quran" (whatever...). The seven different variants are only the different qiraa'at that we have today, with minor differences that all convey similar meanings, but with different layers and "wisdoms" behind it. But when I read this: http://research-islam.blogspot.se/2013/03/did-memorisation-preserve-quran.html it all made perfect sence. What the actual islamic sources seemed to say, was not the same thing as what the islamic scholars wanted them to say. This article just confirmed this notion I had from the very beginning. It becomes even more "sneaky" and dishonest when you find out that very controversial narrations are kept "hidden" (ie they are not mentioned and scholars did not want to mention them despite them being highly relevant to the subject).

    I am sure many of these so-called Islamic scholars realizes that there silly verses of Quran  are compiled as book at least 10 or 20 years after the death of alleged Prophet., The Quran was allegedly revealed to Prophet since he was a 40 year old guy   and he died when he was 63.

    That means 23 years prophet's time + at least another 20 years before it became book .,  and that means  these so called Sahaba reciters must remember every word to word what prophet said in some congregation  for 43 years and on top of that they have to differentiate between revelations and  other sayings/talks of Prophet..

    How did they do it??   these guys had some sort of tape recorder from allah??    Fools write nonsense.

    And.. and on top of all that when you look at the Quran., It is filled with stories from other religions along with pagan rituals and we have 30% of useless nonsense. Plus  you have verses filed with Prophet's personal junky life such as
    Quote
    O Prophet! why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you; you seek to please your wives; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful

    Allah indeed has sanctioned for you the expiation of your oaths and Allah is your Protector, and He is the Knowing the Wise.

    And when the prophet secretly communicated a piece of information to one of his wives-- but when she informed (others) of it, and Allah made him to know it, he made known part of it and avoided part; so when he informed her of it, she said: Who informed you of this? He said: The Knowing, the one Aware, informed me.


    Maybe, his Lord, if he divorce you, will give him in your place wives better than you, submissive, faithful, obedient, penitent, adorers, fasters, widows and virgins.

    What  nonsense is that?    Prophet gets  "submissive, faithful, obedient, penitent, adorers, fasters, widows and virgins.  if he divorces his wives??"

    garbage ., And these EARLY ISLAMIC IDIOTS added  all that nonsense together and  a made book  as Word of Allah/god??

     At least if these fools  put that in to hadith. I would have flatly rejected., Saying "Hadith is nonsense but Quran is good".    Well fools  who collated that book in the first place  didn't even give that chance..

    Ultimately, why is there abrogation? Is God confused? Only after Umme Salma complained that men and women are not mentioned in equal footing that God started mentioning "Believing men, believing women...." Maybe God forgot that women are also human beings?! 6:146 (Y. Ali) For those who followed the Jewish Law, We forbade every (animal) with undivided hoof, and We forbade them that fat of the ox and the sheep, except what adheres to their backs or their entrails, or is mixed up with a bone: this in recompense for their wilful disobedience: for We are true (in Our ordinances). I mean pork is not allowed because it is unhealthy, but why fat of ox and sheep (except for that back and entrails)? Didn't the Muslims of Muhammad's time commit crimes, so why weren't they deprived of some delicious foods? The Quran is a book for all time but certain hostile verses are only for that certain time? The verses of the Quran are not all that was revealed to Muhammad, there were some not included according to God's will. And memorisation? Do you know of that game called Telephone?

    Question.

    Does anyone know how old is the oldest complete quran we have today? A quick search tells me that Uthman canonized the first one in the 650s, and destroyed all others, so even this early quran is just Uthman's subjective take on it.

    So rather than the quran being the 'direct work of god' it had already been  through a 'Chinese Whispers style' process by several degrees of separation.

    So todays quran has already gone through:

    Allah > Gabriel > Mo > Mo's friends (who 'remembered' what he had said 20 years earlier) > who then wrote some of it down > and was later edited/padded out by Uthman.

    So the quran is like the usual total bollocks pub story:

    "My mate says his great-great...(miss a few)......-great grandfather heard from some guys who wrote a book who said they had heard it from some people who said they knew a guy who said he had heard it from an angel who said he had heard it from god...... Totally true, straight up!!! Oh yeah pint of Guinness for me mate, cheers!"

    Hardly straight from the source is it?

    I am better than your god......and so are you.

    The oldest complete Quran is 2 to 3 centuries after Uthman. There are fragments of earlier Qurans. However give that these fragments prove the tradition that the quran is unaltered wrong these are not accepted as authentic. As you said a game of Chinese whispers which in fact was the cause of Uthman codifying the Quran. The game of whispers started within the life time of Muhammad and continued for decades after this death.

    I don't know why believers think this argument is evidence that the book is true. So EVEN IF it's never been changed since it was first written, so what???!! It still has to stand on its claims and its merits (which are few and far between)

    You can have a book which was wrong to start with, and having never been changed, is STILL wrong!

    Dear GROUP-

    Please do not read any deeper into my comments as I will state verbatim how I feel and what is provable.

    The plain an simple truth is easy and not complicated. Human beings/Mankind tend to put several spins on simple matters which do nothing short of how The Shaytan/Devil/Enemy/Evil One; or whatever you choose to call it; it doesn't matter, plays his game.  He causes deception by way of confusion. Muslims; Christians, and Jews are all Cousin/Brothers to one another and should not be fighting your own relative. Especially not about your own choices in practicing and serving your Lord.  The constant seeking and digging to refute validity of Quran is useless and only causes more harm rather than good. The reason is; that it does nothing but cause those who believe in Allah and the Quran to come back with rebuttal and there the cycle repeats itself once again. Another ball of confusion when in the Holy Quran and every other scripture; we already know to part in peace ie agree to disagree. Not to mention; so many people try so hard to find and twist what they want to prove their point. All the claims about the non-abrogated fact of the Holy Quran are based on Hadith and we all know that many are fake. Therefore; unless REAL proofs are presented, this post is nothing short of an verbal assault on the choice of being Muslim that Muslims make.  The fact is that none of this is about Muslims; Islam or Quran but the truth is humans aren't being honest that this is really more about looking for an opening which just might justify their desires to do whatever they want to do.  Therefore; sitting back trying to poke holes in Quran and Islam is another attempt to do so because it is still the only source that will not accept the changes that the bibles and Taurut AKA Torah has allowed. The bibles went from not allowing pork and fornication to allowing it because the blood protects your sins. But that's not the same in the Holy Quran and Islam therefore; in my humble opinion has led to the assault on Islam and the Holy Quran. In other words Islam and The Holy Quran has become the Scapegoat because it will not "let people do what they want to do."

    Since all of us will indeed die off of this earth; and no one has come back to tell us how it is, we should all be wise to be careful about our actions while we're here.

    Thank you for allowing me to share my point of view.

    The guy who put that video up seems to have got banned, and there aren't any legit sites hosting it elsewhere.

    And Dr Kalima, maybe some people are "sitting back trying to poke holes in Quran", but that doesn't apply to research on its pre-Islamic sources. If anything that line of research is out to PATCH holes in the Qur'an, when the book refers to stuff that made sense in the first century and makes no such sense now in the fifteenth. Stuff like the Alexander Nes'hana. Scroll to page 175.
