Did you hear about the Sanaa Quran found in Yemen? It is claimed that there are some differences between the text and a previous erased text written underneath it ... As if some corrections and modifications were made.historically speaking there is evidence that the Quran was subjected to a serious manipulation when it was first gathered. Ali's copy of the Quran was discarded in favor of another that was collected and written mainly at the request of abu bakr. even predating that event, in fact some scholars believe that some of the verses were lost after the battle of yamama during which many of the companions were killed. to note that the battle took place 10 years after prophet Muhammad had passed away. that battle was the motivation to put the Quran down in writing until then some of the Quran was memorized, some was written down on manuscripts. Zeid bin Thabet was chosen to the task. now to give the guy credit, he reluctantly took the job because he realized the depth of that responsibility, and to point out how fragile some of that work was i will quote from sahih el bukhary, as narrated by zaid bin thabet himself (and this also coincides with surat at-tawba mentioned earlier):
Volume 6, Book 61, Number 511: Narrated Zaid bin Thabit:
Abu Bakr sent for me and said, "You used to write the Divine Revelations for Allah's Apostle : So you should search for (the Qur'an and collect) it." I started, searching for the Qur'an till I found the last two Verses of Surat At-Tauba with Abi Khuzaima Al-Ansari and I could not find these Verses with anybody other than him.
in addition, some companions claim that at least three revelations were left out, including one pointed out by Aisha, as narrated by hadith musllim. very delicate subject so i will skip over the details.
the compilation written by zaid bin thabet was then kept with abou bakr, then with umar, and after umar it went to his daughter Hafsa who was one of the prophet's wives. at a later stage, uthman ordered all individual copies of suras and verses of the quran to be burned after differences between the recitations began to surface, and he sent for this copy from Hafsa which was redistributed and became the official Quran. i am not sure if this is the copy that is still in circulation today, but i think it is.
Not sure where their research will lead ...
Funny how prophets, Jesus, Mohammed both came and left and none wrote anything ....
Wouldn't you think logically? since Dalzi is claiming the Quran is logical, that a prophet would logically write his holly perfect book and pass it along? instead of friends and disciples remembering the words of Allah and compiling it in a weird order hundreds years later ?? ,,,
