Watch Ustadh Shibli Zaman in this short two-part commentary on the University of Birmingham’s recent carbon dating of the Qur’anic manuscript fragments “M 1572”, which was found to be among the oldest in the world. The parts of the Qur’an written on the parchment can be dated to less than two decades after the Prophet’s ﷺ death.
