Are These The Oldest Quran? Topkapi And Samarkand Manuscript

11

In this video we discuss the earliest surviving Quran Manuscript which are the Topkapi and the Samarkand Manuscript. Muslims keep claiming that these Manuscript are the oldest Quran which are from Uthman. This claim are all based on Sentiment not historical research and evidence. This manuscript It only begins in the middle of verse 7 of Suratul-Baqarah (which is the second surah) and from there on numerous pages are missing. The last part of the Qur'an text from Surah 43.10 onwards is altogether missing from the manuscript. This manuscript is clearly written in Kufic script and, as we have seen the Kufic script was introduce much longer after Uthman had Canonized the Quran.
