Examining the Newest Historical Research on Earliest Qur’anic Manuscripts
Br. Ejaz Ahmed’s brief dialogue with Jay Smith
Jay believes all major codices from the Qur’an date to the 8th and 9th centuries CE. I prove to him this is not the case.
“the second half of the first century A.H. and the first half of the second Century A.H. [due to] “vowelling and dotting.” (i.e. early – mid 8th century) (Altıkulaç, ‘AlMushaf alSharif’ 2007:81)
622 CE is when the Hijri calendar begins, 622 + 50 is 672. Jay says it’s only from the 8th century onward. When caught he initially says it dates to the mid 8th century which is 750 CE, then he changes his mind and says 719. So why can’t he get his story straight?
Jay’s claims Topkapi has “thousands of differences”, I point out it’s mainly with the letter alif and quoted this for him:
“There are 2270 instances where there is dissimilarity between the Topkapi Mushaf and the Fahd Mushaf – most of them concerning whether or not the word was written with an alif..”
