Allah says, “Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.” (Quran English Interpretation Chapter 15 verse 9). Now read this amazing piece of info below:

A Quran manuscript has been carbon dated to have been written almost 20-40 years (with 95% precision) after the Prophet Mohammad’s صلى الله عليه وسلم death. It was donated to the University of Tubingen (Germany) in the 19th century. This manuscript (and many others with it) goes to show as tohow early such copies of the Quran were in circulation. Such manuscripts also debunk many wild and sensational orientalist theories about the origins of Islam. As far as early Muslims were concerned, religious practices and scripture were well established within the life of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. The article below provides a link to the entire electronic copy of the manuscript, enjoy. It is mistakenly stated that the manuscript is written in Kufic script. That is not the case rather the script is Hijazi (earlier in origin than the Kufic script). The contents and the order of the surahs is exactly the same as what we read today alhamdulillah. The parchments contain verses from surah 17 to 36 (over 25% of the Quran). Please share this crucial piece of information with all those who dispute with you in this matter.

Subhana’llah: Tacca Chantrieri (IMAGES)

info-pictogram1 Tacca chantrierei is native to tropical regions of Southeast Asia including Thailand, Malaysia, and southern China: particularly Yunnan Province. They are understory plants, so they prefer shade (at least 60%). They grow best in well-drained soil with good air circulation, but they prefer high humidity, and need a lot of water.

info-pictogram1 This is the blood vessel network of the human face.

There are three varieties of blood vessels: arteriesveins, and capillaries. During blood circulation, the arteries carry blood away from the heart. The capillaries connect the arteries to veins. Finally, the veins carry the blood back to the heart.

If you took all of the blood vessels out of an average child, and laid them out in one line, the line would be over 60,000 miles long! An adult’s vessels would be closer to 100,000 miles long!

Besides circulating blood, the blood vessels provide two important means of measuring vital health statistics: pulse and blood pressure. We measure heart rate, or pulse, by touching an artery. The rhythmic contraction of the artery keeps pace with the beat of the heart. Since an artery is near the surface of the skin, while the heart is deeply protected, we can easily touch the artery and get an accurate measure of the heart’s pulse.
