    We believe in one God,
    the Father, the Almighty,
    maker of heaven and earth,
    of all that is, seen and unseen.
    We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
    the only Son of God,
    eternally begotten of the Father,
    God from God, light from light,
    true God from true God,
    begotten, not made,
    of one Being with the Father;
    through him all things were made.
    For us and for our salvation
    he came down from heaven,
    was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary
    and became truly human.
    For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
    he suffered death and was buried.
    On the third day he rose again
    in accordance with the Scriptures;
    he ascended into heaven
    and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
    He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
    and his kingdom will have no end.

    We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
    who proceeds from the Father [and the Son],
    who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified,
    who has spoken through the prophets.
    We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
    We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
    We look for the resurrection of the dead,
    and the life of the world to come. Amen.

    Slightly tangentially but not actually! I am reading Commonplace Books and reading in Georgian England by David Allen, who argues I think cogently that writing is incomplete with out reading, and it is in fact the act of reading that brings a work to life.

    Writing is therefore always partial and incomplete- the one hand clapping in a forest.

    A written completely true word of god is thus impossible, especially as languages are also only attempts to put meaning on life.

    Even if Goddidit manage to get his thoughts down perfectly they would be incomplete as they must be read by someone, chewed over, thought about, digested. A delicious meal once it is eaten eventually...

    A Ummayad guy I think. Even if there is no "prophetic" things on it, the knowing of who he is exactly is controversial (Muhammad the prophet/or not)

    Beginning of the 8th I'd say : 700.
    The word "muhammad" in the Dome inscription is notoriously ambiguous. But not in the Quran.

    Notoriously ambiguous, especially for Christians Arabophone.
    Not necessarily. One cannot put the argument of  "correct language" when it deals with certain touchy topics like this.

    Muhammad from the beginning  to the  end .(( that is .end being today's date))  and .all those Muhammads that you  see  in those tons of Hadith sayings and some three verses of Quran   IS INDEED A TITLE dear Asbjoern1958..,    Not only that.,  I will go further and say that all those Muhammads from since the first time that word was attached to a person's name to today that you  see/read about/ read from having that  that adjective  attached to the names  Muslim male folks  is indeed THE TITLE attached to the their respective names..

    And and for those who read Quran and who read hadith and who read Islamic history There should be little on that.,     Doubts are in the minds of faith heads and in  the minds of  THOSE ACADEMICS FROM WEST WHO ARE/WERE PROFESSORS in some history/religious departments in some universities write publications on the story of Muhammad.....

    Suppose that the Quran did not exist and we have only the inscription of the Dome, "Muhammad" in the inscription of the Dome would be for us much more ambiguous than today .Whereas I consider this word, even with the Quran, ambiguous for us today.

    Who is Muhammed in the Quran?

    For the authors of the Quran, an abstract figure that they have invented whom the reader have to deduct that he is the personage to whom God speak.

    you really did not answer the question dear Altara....  that Muhammad in the Quran was  ambiguous or not ,,  let me rephrase that Question.,    WAS THERE ANY REAL PERSON WHO HAD NAME /Added to his name   the word MUHAMMAD....... who is connected Quran verses  and earliest times of Islam?

    I consider Islamic Muhammad(Quranic and Hadith) is a Multiple actions  and characters  of Multiple leaders of  early Islam..  all the way to  to the end hadith stories/sayings attached to his name..

    As far as Quranic Muhammad(NO HADITH) is considered I think he was also real person and is nothing to do with early Quran manuscripts ..but  those 3 or 4 verses were added in to original manuscripts ... which became the book... present Quran at later times ...

    It is technically feasible but I do not see an individual composition. Plus, I see few later additions to arrange the texts, end of sura for example, by people who had no relation of any sort with the genuine authors.

    Nope.

    I agree with you large amount text.. I mean out of those 6300 verses of the book more than 90% of the verses are NOT connected  to be connected to  the word "Muhammad" ..  but  those verses that were added at later times must be relevant to a person whose name or added name or middle name  was indeed Muhammad....

    Am I wrong there??

    The Nicene Creed is very carefully written to be vague about what one god means, does god have parts?
