These religious texts, the oldest surviving Quranic manuscript pages ever found, have been in a collection within the University of Birmingham's library for over a century.
New radiocarbon analysis by University of Oxford have dated the folios to between 568 and 645 AD with 95.4% accuracy, according to a press release .
Some reports suggest then that these parchments might predate Mohammed , and rewrite the early history of Islam.
News website Digital Journal reports, “Scholars came to this conclusion after researchers carbon dated a small piece of parchment from the Islamic holy book.
The carbon dating, which is considered to be extremely accurate, suggests that the Quran may have actually been written before Muhammad was alive, or during the early years of his childhood.” These results may cause controversy among scholars as Islam’s Prophet Mohammad—believed to be the historic founder of Islam and “messenger of god” to Muslims— was thought to have been born in 570 AD and to have died in 632 AD.
Abdulrazig Angabo, I dare say no muslim will leave islam because it's been proved the book is older than what it was supposed to have been.
People who believe and have faith will continue to believe and have faith.
As to the mouthings of “physicists” on TV claiming to know the age of the universe, or, now, the multiverses, in which I am currently living, as you are, in another form !!!
