More delusions and early Qur'ans

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Hello Jenni are you here?

Submitted by dhimmi no more (United States), Apr 12, 2008 at 19:50

And our dear Mansoor's ignorance goes on and on. No, we do not have a complete copy of the Qur'an that is even close to the 1923-1249CE Cairo edition of the Qur'an 9twhich is the standard Qur'an) prior to the 3rd century of islam

The so called Uthmanic recension is but one story in the confused and confusing so called history about the collection of the Qur'an that is provided to us by the unreliable islamic historical tradition

>I am proud that the historical credibility of the Qur'an is further established by the fact that one of the copies sent out by the Caliph Uthman is still in existence today.

Where? In your imagination? For any one interested in all Arabic language literary material (coins, papyri, codices, epigraphy etc...) from 632CE when Muahmmad died until the end of the dynasty of Umayyad's in 750CE I suggest to check Hoyland survey but a copy of the Qur'an is not one of them'

How come you did not know that? Could it be becuase you are ignorant? or is it wishful thinking that we do not know? or may be you know and you are no more than a liar? so which one is it?

> It lies in the Museum of the City of Tashkent in Uzbekistan, Central Asia....and an early manuscript on gazelle parchment exists in Dar al-Kutub as-Sultaniyyah in Egypt. More ancient manuscripts from all periods of Islamic history found in the Library of Congress in Washington, the Chester Beatty Museum in Dublin (Ireland) and the London Museum have been compared with those in Tashkent, Turkey and Egypt, with results confirming that there have not been any changes in the text from its original time of writing

Islamic gobbledygook

1. The Tashkent Quran (Uzbekistan)
2. The Topkapi Quran (Turkey)
3. The Al-Hussein Mosque Manuscript. (Egypt)

ReallY? All these Qur'an were written in Kufic which means that they lacked the editing by the 3IUlama so wannabe Arabs like you can read them. Missing are the long vowels and short vowels (notice that in the Topkapi copy the short vowels were for sure added at a later date and so much for the unedited Qur'an) and the 3Ulama had to invent the shadda and the missing hamza and place the alif maksura only at the end of a word. The grammar mistakes and all (eg: ina hadhan la sahiran) had to be sorted out and al-shi3r al-jahli had to be collected inorder to be able to tell what is this opaque revelation wrtiiten in primitive script is really saying.

Your Allah's confused rasm had to be sorted out and the likes of the rasm MLK in surat al-fatiha had to be edited as either maalki or malki and this was not acheived before the 3rd century when the Muslim 3Ulama sitting in distant Iran and mesopotamia were working on the Muslim masora (I do nto translate anything for you) so the real copy of today's Qur'an (the Cairo edition) can not be dated before the 9th century

So much for Islamic delusions about 3Uthman and his little recension

No, you need to read a book, and get your money back from your madrassa
