And you should continue.

There are plenty of excellent YouTube channels about the Qur'an and Islam and the best are by atheists, ex-Muslims and Christian apologists and as expected YouTube does not like any of these channels that are critical of Islam and "members of the protected group.". And here is just a few:

1. CIRA International: al-Fadi is a Saudi ex-Muslim and a convert to Christianity. This is scholarly work that examines the Qur'an, the Islamic Literary sources and the history of very early Islam.

2. Islam Critiqued: This is a Christian apologist whose command of Biblical Hebrew is very impressive. Again scholarly textual criticism of the Islamic literary sources, the Qur'an included.

3. Sam Shamoun: He is a Christian apologist. His parents are Chaldeans from Iraq and his command of Biblical Hebrew, Aramaic and NT Greek is very good. I do not believe that he speaks fluent Arabic. However, he seems to deal very well with Arabic texts.

4. Hatun Tash: The channel is: DCCI Ministries. She is an ex-Muslim from Turkey. Again, textual criticism of the Islamic literary sources the Qur'an included. BTW she was stabbed in the face in Speakers Corner, London, a few weeks ago, by one of the followers of the religion of peace.

5. Variant Qur'an: Prof Daniel Brubaker studies very early Quranic manuscripts and indeed one discovers that the Quranic text did not drop from the sky. The text undergone changes, as would be expected over time. Very worth watching.

6. Rob Christian: He is a Christian Arab and his command of Arabic is excellent. He explains the language of the Qur'an and make it easy for anyone who has no knowledge of the Arabic language.

7. Apostate Prophet: He is an ex-Muslim and now atheist born in Germany to Turkish parents.

8. Christian Prince: He is another Christian Arab and he seems to be the star at the moment. Great knowledge of the Qur'an and Islamic literary sources including sources that have not been translated to English. Very worth watching.

I also suggest that you read about the history and geography of the Middle East in late antiquity.

I really do not have the time at present to watch all of the above channels but I do check every now and then.

Good luck
