Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: To Matthew

Submitted by Matthew 10:34 (United States), May 2, 2006 at 13:42

First of all Allah was not the moon god. The moon god was Hubal. Muhammed never worshiped "other gods". I think it is a waste of time to argue about facts, but i would like to know from where do you get your facts.

I know there are more Christians than Muslims, but i am not sure if that holds that the bible is the best selling book. But again, do you read it that much?

You say that the Quran was collected 200 years after Muhammed's death. But still there is only one version, simply because during Muhammed's life time and till our current day, muslims recite the book on a regular basis. On the other hand it was put together, but not written after 200 years. In other words, whenever a chapter was revealed, someone would immediately write it down, and several copies would be made too.
