Did you find out who wrote that Wikipedai article. The langusge used itself shows that he is not confident about what he or she is writing.<quoted text>
No need to see with my own eyes, I checked it out in wikipedia and the Islamic Awareness website. Here is what wikipedia says:
"It was wrongly attributed to Uthman Ibn Affan (d. 656), but judging from its illumination, the Topkapi manuscript does not date from the period (early first century AH) when the copies of the Caliph Uthman were written".
Brother MUQ, I am sorry to disappoint you, but you need to do your homework. The copy in both Topkapi and Samarkand date back to early 2nd century AH or late 1st century AH, they do not date back to the time of Mohammad. And by the way, these kafirs scholars who have spent are lifetime researching the Koran, these pork eating beer guzzling kafirs such as Patricia Crone, Andrew Rippin, Fred Donner, & Anglika Neurwirth have proven to be correct in saying that no one has the capacity to explain who wrote the Koran and when it was first written.
Any one can express "doubt" about any thing in the world that "I do not think that the claim matches with reality".
And you just "drink in" such experts opinion and pose as "Highest authority" on Ancient Quranic manuscripts.
Your create doubts, where there is absolutely no doubts.
