I saw that what you just saw there is the famous Topkapi manuscript of the Quran.

00:00:32--> 00:00:41

Later per century that to the early second century of Islam, this is not the earliest copies of the Quran in the world. And it's a huge chunk.

00:00:42--> 00:00:43


00:00:45--> 00:00:48

I want to explain very quickly, this copy of the Quran

00:00:55--> 00:01:40

it's probably time was likely to have been pinned down by possibly a companion of the prophet or maybe a follower of the companion of the Prophet, because it is from the late first century to the early second century of Islam, when the companions of the prophets are alive. The last Companion of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam passed away in the year 110. And if it was written by that time, then companion, one of the companions of the prophet is alive. And if it was written later, slightly later, then possibly the WT or the photos of the companions were alive at that time. So just want to highlight this fact, this is Topkapi lithium. This is in the possession. This

particular manuscript is not the greatest achievements of Islam and Muslims. This museum possesses this manuscript and if you read it is exactly the same as reading the Quran today. Okay. I had a harvest with him with me, actually, he is right now behind the camera he's filming is a harvest of the Quran. And he could read parts of

00:02:03--> 00:02:12

the Quran that are on display. For example, Surah Al Imran is part of parts of Alabama, maybe you can read from behind the camera, the part that was visible

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

in Sharla. So

00:02:17--> 00:02:42

Surah Ali Imran it was open those two pages. And if we do a comparison between what we have today, and what is written by a continental doctors, the structure of the words is exactly the same. There is not even a difference of words. And here we have a first century or potentially an early second century Quran in this period. Thank you for listening. There's more coming somebody
