The clue to the matter is in the name of the holy book of Islam. Why would it be called al-Qur'an which is not an Arabic word because if the word Qur'an really means reading/recitation (ref: Q96:1) then it should not be called القران or al-Qur'an and it should be called القراءة or al-Qira'a and here is Ibn Manzur's Lisan al-Arab and the word al-Qur'an

Why would the author of the Qur'an select a Syriac word ܩܪܝܢܐ or Qeryana we will never know and here is the dictionary meaning of the Syriac word ܩܪܝܢܐ and it means Lectionary

And here is the meaning of the word Qeryana from the Syriac Peshitta

And more evidence that this very well could be that Islam started as Non Trinitarian Syro-Arabic Christianity in late antiquity
