Islam while he was yet in the groins of an infidel!" As for Ubayy's copy, itcontains verses and Suras that are not in Othman's copy.Why was there difference and disagreement, even though the people were stillclosely relatedto their leader's life?! We again wonder, why did thoseresponsible for the collection of the Koran ignore the significant Companions,such as Ali Ibn Abi Taalib, Ubayy Ibn Abi Ka'b, Ibn Mas'uud, and Ibn Abbaas?We also have the right to ask, "why did Othman form a committee to collectand arrange the Koran, and removed the abrogated verses from it? Why didn'the or those with him accept the copy of Zaid, although Abu Bakr, Omar, Ali,and the senior Companions accepted it under Abu Bakr and Omar?What Othman did to the Koran will always be under suspicion and accusation,since he burnt all the other copies that were existent at the time. Why were thecopies prior to Othman's copy, which included Zaid's copy, destroyed, if theywere consistent with the unified text of Othman? And if it was at variance withit and ought to be burnt, how can we trust Othman's copy, while he himself didnot trust the work of Abu Bakr, Omar, and Ali?The Shiites and the distortion of the KoranAll that we said previously represent the sayings and opinions of the reliableSunni scholars, which call the impeccability of the Koran in question andaccuse it, explicitly and implicitely, of being added to, taken from, changed,and substituted. The Shiite scholars, likewise, hold that the Koran has beenadded to and taken from. Their scholars of the Tradition and exposition, such asAli Ibn Ibrahim, his disciple Al-Kalleeni, Al-Ayyaashi, and Al-Tubrusi, are of one opinion that the Koran circulated now between the hands of the Muslims isnot the whole Koran!Imam Muhammad Ibn Ja'far emphasized in his book "Al-Imamah" that Godnever said in the Koran, "The second of two, when the two were in the Cave,when he said to his companion, 'Sorrow not; surely God is with us.'" (Sura9:40)!There aremany books written by the most significant leaders of the Shiite sectthat confirm the fact that the Koranic texts were distorted. The most famousamong them is "THE ABRIDGMENT ON THE DISTORTION OF THEBOOK OF THE LORD OF LORDS" by Imam Al-Nuri. The writer said in the preface, "This is a kind book and a creditable treatise, which proves thedistortion of the Koran and brings to light the shameful deeds of the injuriousand the unjust." The book consists of three introductions and two parts.
