The Qur'an is the most edited so called holy book and more Quranic disasters

Reader comment on item: Friendless in the Middle East
in response to reader comment: The Quran is God's pure words, cannot be changed

For the readers; the Qur'an was written in the basic layer called al-rasm but it is almost impossible to read such script and this is why the ulama had to EDIT the Quranic text in the 9th century (3rd century of islam) during the activity called the Quranic masora but very often the ulama had no clue what the qur'an is really saying and they had to add the missing dots and short vowels and many long vowels as well as the consonant hamza as well as the shadda or double consonants

The Qur'an is the most edited book and as you shall see below when Allah is talking about his little al-lawh al-mahfouz or his protected tablet the rasm of the word MHFZ was read into teo differnet ways as you shall see below but in the porcess it changed the meaning of the entire sentence and what a scandal

So much for the unedited Qur'an

>We cannot change the Arabic text of the Quran, simply because they are the words of God

Reall? then how come the rasm محفوظ was edited as either مَّحْفُظٍ or mmahfuzin (i3rab) and also as مَّحْفُظً or mmahfuzun as we will find that in the Cairo Qur'an and the Tunisian Qur'na

So you tell us

1. Did Abul Qasim aka Muhammad hear it as mahfuzin aw mahfuzun and it cannot both

2. This means that the Cairo Qur'an is different from the Tunisian Qur'an and what a scandal

3. It means that the ulama EDITED Allah words despite of the fact that he tells us that no one can change his words but in this case the ulama did

4. For the readers: this is indeed more evidence that there must have been a period between the Qur'an as a text and the masora as an activity which means that the Qur'an was not canonized for at least 300 years because by then the real meaning of this word was lost

Oh the words mean memorized v proteced which really chnages the meaning of the sentence FI LAWH MAHFZ

So much for the unedited Qur'an

How come you did not know that our dear slayhy el-tablighee?
