Whoever claims that he knows them, is a liar. The fact that surahs, including the Fatiha, were missing in certain copies merely means that just like there were many copies which were complete, other copies belonging to various individuals were incomplete.

Consensus of the scholars of this ummah constitutes as a binding proof on any matter. It is of no doubt that these great companions and jasahif scholars knew full well the responsibility and burden they carried in preserving the religion for future generations.

I finish this initial discussion with the following two hadiths which are pertinent to our topic. Therefore, when one reads such books we should understand this point and not jump to conclusions when we first read something.

Was the Originally Compiled Qur’an During the Era of Abu Bakr Incomplete?

This means that any matter that kitxb been wholly agreed upon kktab be incorrect or misguidance. Each piece was collated and compared to the collections of other companions.

He exhorted us to hold fast to the Book of Allah and then said: Often times, they did not state or separate the strong, weak, fabricated or sound narrations.
