Dr Pipes you wrote

including the Canadian phony moderate Ingrid Mattson

Well said Dr. Pipes this woman is indeed a phony just like the other phony woman Karen Armstrong the fake!

Ms. Mattson's book the story of the Qur'an is a disaster. The funny thing here is even Muslims themselves do not seem to agree or get the story straight about the collection of the book of Allah and now Ms Mattson the phony has the answer! Masha'allah

It is very clear that her knowledge of Arabic is very limited and she seems to be using translations of the Qur'an and the other islamic sources than translating the material for herself (and why would one believe any translation done by anyone else when writing a book? I just wonder, oh I think because she is ignorant)

Now the story of the collection of the Qur'an is the most confused and confusing story in the history of early islam and it does not make any sense and Ms Mattson believes that she knows how the Qur'an was collected? alhadulillah

Now you must excuse me but after reading this horrible book I felt like puking!

And here is a review of this woman's book from "Muslim journeys"

The Story of the Qur'an begins with an accessible account of the origins of the Qur'an that places Muhammad, the Muslim holy book, and the first adherents to Islam in historical context. Ingrid Mattson, a professor of Islamic studies, uses translated passages from the Qur'an, as well as scholarly sources and stories from the time of Muhammad, to give readers a sense of the language, imagery, and rhythm of the Qur'an. Mattson also explains how the Qur'an has been transmitted both as recitation and scripture, "the voice and the pen," from Islam's formative days to the present. She describes the Qur'an's role in Muslim culture and daily life, and provides a guide to its traditions and sources of interpretation, cautioning casual readers and others who might pull verses out of context to take care in trying to ascertain what all Muslims believe or are mandated to do.

I ask the readers: what did you learn about this horrible book from reading this review? The only conclusion I can reach is that the reviewer did not read the book and if he/she did read it then he or she has no clue about the disaster called the collection of the Qur'an

She is indeed a phony
