Carbon dating quran

Every single one of the above mentioned articles has noted that, indeed, there is no actual evidence to suggest the text itself predates the Prophet’s lifetime.According to the logic being used by the “predating” line of thinking, If I found a scrap of paper that existed prior to my birth and wrote something on it, it means that, actually, what I had written magically predates my birth.Again: all we know is that the parchment itself came from an animal that lived before the Prophet’s birth.What does this mean in terms of “rewriting the history of Islam? As for the articles on the subject of dating, here is a sampling of quotes:.” Well, fine.The document contains some usage of diacritical marks.

Now, we have examples of manuscripts where diacritical marks have been added by others later, and this could be the case here.If you have followed the news over the last week, then there’s little doubt you may have seen some of the following headlines: Fragments of World’s Oldest Koran May Predate Muhammad Birmingham’s ancient Koran ‘could rewrite history of Islam’Carbon dating suggest ‘world’s oldest’ Koran could be older than the Prophet Apparently this ancient Quran found in England is older than the Prophet Muhammed!Well, does the Birmingham manuscript predate the lifetime of the Prophet? Or, if it does, then the case for its divinity is even stronger. The Birmingham manuscript’s is the only thing that has been carbon dated.Sana manuscripts being between 568 (2 years before Mo's birth) and 645 (which is still before Uthman's decree in 652/653) absolutely does mean that the Quran is too old, when the Quran was first put together/written down after Uthman's decree according to Islamic canon.Hmm well I read the Islamic rebuttal to this and scholars are saying yes the parchment might be older but then used later to write the actual Quran on it.
