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.

“Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.” [Qur’an, chapter 15, verse 9]

God Almighty blessed His final revelation, the Qur’an, with something that was not bestowed on any of the prior Scriptures, by promising to protect and preserve it from any corruption. You might be wondering, how can such a bold claim be true in light of what we know about the consistent and unfailing corruption of previous religious Scriptures throughout history?

Muslims today have no doubt about the perfect preservation of the Qur’an. The primary means of preserving the Qur’an has, and always will be, through memorisation. We have an oral tradition of memorisation spanning nearly 1,500 years that has seen the Qur’an being passed down from teacher to student in an unbroken chain going all the way back to Prophet Muhammad himself, peace be upon him. You can read more about this here.

What about the physical manuscript evidence, what does it tell us about the Qur’an? Does it too support Islam’s claims about the perfect preservation of the Qur’an? As we will see, new manuscript discoveries add even further weight in support of the preservation of the Qur’an.
