Has the Qur’an been Reliably Preserved?

Paul (Bilal) Williams here demonstrates how modern secular scholarship is a) discarding the radical historical-scepticism/ historical revisionism of the 1970s and b) affirming the reliability of the traditional (Islamic) account of the Qur’anic compilation. In particular, Paul refers to Professor Angelika Neuwirth’s entry in the Cambridge Companion to the Qur’an.

Why is this important?

Is the Qur’an Authentic?

Some SHOCKing findings must be expressed based upon a “comparative investigation” made on two of the oldest manuscripts of the Qur’an we possess:

“The first manuscript known as Birmingham folios… is probably originated from Cairo (Egypt) and the second manuscript known as Sanaa folios… was discovered in an ancient mosque of Sanaa (Yemen). The old folios are carbon-dated from the period of the first century of Hijra: between 568 CE and 645 CE for the Birmingham parchment and between 578 CE and 669 CE for the Sanaa parchment.

NOTE: there are ZERO (that is, 0) manuscripts for the NEW TESTAMENT from the first Century CE.

Evidence:

“The two ancient scriptures corresponding to chapters 19 and 20, from Birmingham and Sanaa, were found to be similar to the present Uthmanic Quran compilation, in their basic morphology, as written in the old Arabic scripture.” That is to say, they correspond exactly to the current Qur’ans we possess, word for word. Let that sink in.

“This result involves that the Quran chapters 19 and 20 have been safely preserved during the last 14 centuries without alteration. Statistically speaking, this result suggests that the Quran, and not only chapters 19 and 20, should have been safely preserved during the last 14 centuries as well.

“Now, the raising question is: how could it be possible to have two different old parchments, coming from two different regions and dating from 14 centuries, which present a so great similarity with the present Uthmanic Quran compilation? The only interpretation, one can derive, is that the holy scripture has been delicately preserved by the Quranic scholars, by means of memory (i.e. learnt by heart) and by means of writing (i.e. written on parchments), and all that was probably controlled with a great rigour.”

Consider:

“Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Quran) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption).”

(Qur’an, al-Hijr – The Rocky Tract 15:9)

“…it is stangely stated that the holy Scripture is protected and preserved by His Creator; which is in total concordance
with the result of this scientific investigation, at least for the investigated chapters.”

So it seems the claims of the author of the Qur’an has been proved true. And, moreover, given that this has been proved true. what other claims in the Qur’an might also be true?

The Miracle of Miswak

Excerpts from ‘Miswak – Nature’s Toothbrush’:

“The latest craze surrounding the miswak is the packaging of miswak extracts into a toothpaste tube that anyone can purchase and use with their plastic toothbrushes. There are also stores that are selling authentic miswak sticks to anyone who is interested…

“A study was done recently in Saudi Arabia that demonstrated the ability of miswak to clean teeth vs a standard plastic toothbrush. It turns out that it cleans as well as your standard run of the mill plastic toothbrush…” See the rest of this article HERE.

The Genius of Islam

There is a view of the world that designates ‘culture borrowing’ as the sole explanation as to why a later culture may contain features that mirrors or matches a pre-existing culture. Often this is the most probable or plausible explanation. Let us call this the ‘Negative-Material-Contingent’ explanation of cultural continuity, which utilizes solely secular or empirical evidences, attempting to find patterns and then make general deductions based on the material evidence available. Its blind-side is with the dearth of material evidence its generalisations will become wider and, therefore, more likely to be off-the-mark. Another blind-side is not only its delimitation to material evidence but its insistence to deny any explanation involving ‘genuine’ revelation. Such an explanation will never be factored-in as plausible, because this approach has no measuring tool to assess the veracity of such a truth-claim and its possibilities. (See ‘The Challenge of the Qur’an‘ for an example of an attempt to demonstrate in ‘Open’ secular terms, material evidences for revelation.)

The Challenge of the Qur’an

What is the challenge of the Qur’an?

Well, traditionally – that is to say – qur’anically, the challenge was literary or perhaps one of orality, because the culture the Qur’an came into was a time where the poets were esteemed and would hold sparring verbal competitions like modern day spoken word slams and rap battles; spontaneity and immediacy was the order of the day.

However, putting the spontaneity aside to make things easier for the challengers, the Qur’an itself says, a number of times with slight differences of emphases each time, the following:

Ten Surah Challenge: ‘Or do they say, “He invented it”? Say, “Then bring ten surahs like it that have been invented and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides Allah, if you should be truthful.”‘ (Qur’an 11:13)

Critiquing the Qur’anic Authentique [Hadith 5 of 5]

js73563942

One of the main arguments against the Qur’anic historicity has ‘traditionally’ (orientalism-ally speaking) meant that for a long while the earliest extant copy of the Qur’an was Uthmanic. And this was wrapped up (negatively) in the supposed ‘politics’ of the Uthmanic time period or thereafter. The claims, therefore, were that the Qur’an we currently possessed did not correspond to the one from the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him). However, the Qur’anic manuscript found in Birmingham has revised that old fossil of a critique.

Probable Islamic Influence on The Presumption of Innocence

justice-gavel-and-book

The historian Marcel Boisard states in his journal “On the probable influence of Islam on western public and international law”, published in the International Journal of Middle East studies[i]:

“It was above all the very high ethical standard of Islamic law that impressed the medieval West and provoked the development of a more refined legal thinking. This aspect is undoubtedly the most durable merit of Muslim influence, as illustrated by the administration of justice. Until the Crusades, legal procedure in the West consisted of “God’s judgments” by boiling water or by duel, or by “ordeal” during which people were burnt with red-hot irons or boiling oil and, if they survived, declared “not guilty.” In contrast, we have only to quote the instructions given by Omar in the seventh century to the Muslim judges to show what a chasm separated the two conceptions:

“Only decide on the basis of proof, be kind to the weak so that they can express themselves freely and without fear, deal on an equal footing with litigants by trying to reconcile them.”
