A dusty old Quran tucked away the University of Birmingham library has been holding onto a mystery for centuries, and what was just unearthed could shake the religion of Islam straight to its depraved core.
Contained within theÂ seventh century-old Quran, were the fragmented remains of a script written on animal hides, which turned out to be Suras, chapters 18-20 of their religious book. The find has Muslim leaders really disturbed,Â since these archaic texts pre-date their prophet Muhammad. The scriptsÂ are thought to date back toÂ 568AD and 645AD, meaning everything handed down from their prophet came afterwards, proving that the prophet
Muhammad’sÂ directives to his followers were fabricated simply for his own personal sick and twisted political agenda.
Another scholar, Keith Small explained that this find could absolutely be devastating to Islam:
â€œThis gives more ground to what have been peripheral views of the Quranâ€™s genesis, like that Muhammad and his early followers used a text that was already in existence and shaped it to fit their own political and theological agenda, rather than Muhammad receiving a revelation from heaven,â€Â the OxfordÂ Bodleian Library scholar noted.Muslims scholars of course were quick to decry the texts, hanging on to the ideology they’ve been blindly clinging to for years.
â€œThe tests carried out on the parchment of the Birmingham folios yield the strong probability that the animal from which it was taken was alive during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad or shortly afterwards,â€ University of BirminghamÂ Professor Nadir Dinshaw defiantly stated.Â â€œThese portions must have been in a form that is very close to the form of the Quran read today, supporting the view that the text has undergone little or no alteration and that it can be dated to a point very close to the time it was believed to be revealed.â€
Despite reality slapping them right across their faces, Muslims will simply write off this new historic discovery as some sort of insult to their religion.
