Ancient Piece of Koran Found

Ancient Quran discovered in England will 'rejoice Muslim hearts'

Though the Muslim holiday of Eid-al-Fitr just came to an end, many Muslims may find that they have yet another reason to rejoice.

In what has been considered a “startling” discovery, the UK’s Birmingham University unveiled what may be the world’s oldest remnants of the Quran, Islam’s holy text.

“Researchers conclude that the Qur’an manuscript is among the earliest written textual evidence of the Islamic holy book known to survive,” the university wrote in an official statement. “This gives the Qur’an manuscript in Birmingham global significance to Muslim heritage and the study of Islam.”

Oxford University carried out a radiocarbon analysis of the text and found that the parchment on which it is written could be traced back to the years between AD 568 and 645 with 95 percent accuracy.

The results suggest the manuscript was written less than 20 years after Prophet Muhammad’s death, as he is generally thought to have lived between AD 570 and 632. 

“They could well take us back to within a few years of the actual founding of Islam,” wrote Professor of Islam and Christianity David Thomas and Professor of Interreligious Relations Nadir Dinshaw, both of Birmingham University.

According to Muslim tradition, Prophet Muhammad had a vision in 610. Speaking through the angel Gabriel, God ordained him to become the Arab prophet. Up until his death in 632, the Prophet and others continued to collect religious revelations that would form the Quran. 

Most of the revelations were originally preserved in the “memories of men,” the professors wrote, until Caliph Abu Bakr, Islam’s first leader after Muhammad, ordered the collection of all Quranic material in book form. 

The final written form was completed around AD 650 under the rule of the third leader, Caliph Uthman.

“Muslims believe that the Qur’an they read today is the same text that was standardized under Uthman and regard it as the exact record of the revelations that were delivered to Muhammad,” the professors wrote. The newly discovered text suggests that belief is highly plausible. 


So let's put this in perspective so you can see how ridiculous Islam actually is....

Jesus was crucified, died and buried and then rose again and ascended into heaven all in the same year and let's say it was about the year 35 AD.  The entire Old Testament was already readily available and the book of Revelation was the last book written in the New Testament and that happened about 60 years after Christ ascended...or about the year 95 AD.

575 years after Christ ascended, a pedophile named Muhammad was hanging out in a cave one day and reports that an angel appeared to him and basically told him that most of the Bible was a lie, Jesus never ascended, Jesus wasn't the Son of God and that basically the entire Christian history was all a lie.

To put this in perspective, America got it's Independence in 1776.  Let's say that in the year 2351, some historian totally rewrites the history of America and deletes the names of George Washington, Abe Lincoln, John Adams, John Kennedy and every other great name in American history!  He goes on to say that America never was a world power and then proceeds to make up another bunch of lies.

Who would believe this historian totally rewriting everything 575 years after America got it's Independence?!

It's ridiculous.

Yet because Satan is the power behind Islam and its lies, he has just kept repeating the lies found in the Koran that speak about Jesus, salvation, Jews, the Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit OVER AND OVER AGAIN and now that it's been 1405 years since Muhammad heard the first lies....the cult of Islam has close to 1 billion humans who claim to be Muslims.

Friends, that is a lot of lost souls.  Certainly we have work to do while it is still daylight.
