I think you need to read about the history of idol worship in pre-islamic Arabia and also on the history of Muhammad's life. What are the facts? Muhammad's father worshipped the moon god al-illah and pass that on to his son Muhammad.The Quraysh tribe into which Muhammad was born was particularly devoted to Allah, the moon god, and especially to Allah's three daughters who were viewed as intercessors between the people and Allah. The worship of the three goddesses, Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat, played a significant role in the worship at the Kabah in Mecca. The first two daughters of Allah had names which were feminine forms of Allah. The literal Arabic name of Muhammad's father was Abd-Allah. His uncle's name was Obied-Allah. These names reveal the personal devotion that Muhammad's pagan family had to the worship of Allah, the moon god.

I read my Bible a lot. I study it and strive to understand it. Unlike muslims, christians put more emphasis on understanding their holy than just memorizing verses. If you go to a madrassa in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, you see a bunch of kids memorizing the koran but don't bother ask questions or try to understand it. As a matter of fact, asking questions about the koran is discourage even forbidden to do. Therefore the majority of muslims are like robots repeating things they don't even understand. Muslims who do ask questions end up becoming apostates. Then they have to escape to the west for fear of their lives. Why does allah use fear to keep muslims as is slaves?

On the koran's compilation, you need only to read some hadith and you will find out. Muhammad supposedly did not know how to write. so after his so called revelations his companions would memorize what he said. So when you look at it, the koran is nothing but a collection of hear say.
