Shattering the Myth of Perfect Quran Preservation (Islam Critiqued)

Muslim apologists insist that the Quran has been perfectly preserved, right down to the letter, from the time it was revealed to Muhammad. The history of the Quran tells a different story. The first Caliph, Abu Bakr, ordered Zayd ibn Thabit to collect the Quran into a manuscript, which turned out to be an extraordinarily difficult task. Years later, the third Caliph, Uthman, ordered Zayd to do it again, and Zayd’s new Quran was different from his original copy. Moreover, to conceal differences among various Quran manuscripts, Uthman ordered his followers to burn all copies of the Quran. But the problems don’t end there. At the beginning of the next century, the Umayyad Governor al-Hajjaj made further changes to the Quran, and destroyed even more manuscripts. Is this what Muslim scholars mean by “perfect preservation”? Islam Critiqued discusses the issue.
