The Holy Qur’an being the ultimate authority in Islam, its authenticity is of utmost importance to Muslims. This in-depth analysis by the respected scholar Dr. Jamal Badawi shows in what way we can be sure that the Qur’an has remained in its original form since its revelation over 1400 years ago. His comprehensive presentation includes evidence found within the Qur’an itself, the actual methodology and means of preservation employed by the sahabah (companions of the Prophet), the stages in preservation, and the objections raised by non-Muslim scholars. As a footnote, the speaker also answers the question about why former revelations from God were not preserved.
