44th Surah is "The Smoke". Maryam is 19. Dye has made some stuff about 19. In French.
If both are read in Arabic or not it changes nothing to what I said previously in Reply #7110 . Especially since that the Bible is translated in Arabic after the Quran emergence.
well Altara this statement .......... "Bible is translated in Arabic after the Quran emergence"
.... that is a loaded statement which deserves attention.. well Bible means TONS OF BOOKS ... not just story (surah Maryam)from Luke–Acts which were taken rewritten from that Gospel of Mark
..... a source for the narrative of Christ's earthly life, ...... well that is a lot of different problem..
So I agree with you that Bible ..whole bible books are translated in Arabic after the Quran
... but stories ..or few pages of bible ....that you see in bible which were compiled in to Quran must have been there in Arabic rasam.. literature whatever in written form before they became part of Quran..
the other possibility is .. original bible stories that we see in "Luke–Acts" or in Gospel of Mark
were first written in Greek . and Greeks were all over middle east at that time., So any Arab Christian _WHICH I THINK IS THE FIRST Quran WRITER .. the so-called verses in Meccan surajhs)) writer who had access and knowledge to Bible stories put that in Quran...,
So in short I say there was either another book / or a bible story booklets in Arabic .... whether it is called Quran.. or whatever other name ., and that must have been there before this 114 chapter book became a rubber stamp of the faith Islam.. So my questions on the assumptions of Academics that Quran was the first book that was ever written in Arabic will continue ....
