The year of the canonization of the Qur'an is 1924 AD (gasp!)

It is called the Cairo Qur'an.

However, there are still circulating many variant readings of the Qur'an and this is a video by no other than al-Fadi (he is an ex-Muslim and convert to Christianity and he is also a Saudi and he studies early Arabic manuscripts)

So where does al-Tabari fit in all this mess? No doubt that al-Tabari is Allah's Editor in-Chief. However, as was mentioned before, al-Mufasereen realized early on that there are many mistakes in any copy of the Qur'an and as usual they come to the rescue by claiming that these different Qur'ans are really different Qira'at and they invent a Hadith where no other than 'A'esha admits that the scribes must have made mistakes in the Qur'an! They were chasing their tales!

et voila, al-Azhar's authorities come to the rescue by really producing a new canonized copy of the Qur'an some 1400 years after the death of Abul Qasim (Muhammad).
