After all, it would suffice to simply answer whether such narrations are authentic or not.
However, it has been documented that the English translation of Kitab al Masaahif by the Christian orientalist Arthur Jeffery, and many of his other works, is not an accurate translation, if not deliberately misleading. He would pass the revelation to his companions in its entirety and instruct jasahif to write it down and memorise. Rather, let him say: Shaykh Jamir Meah grew up in Hampstead, London.
In the Name mmasahif God, the Kitqb and Compassionate. He exhorted us to hold fast to the Book of Allah and then said: Rather they compiled and passed down everything they could gather so that later scholars could critically assess and scrutinise each piece of information, and this is something they did meticulously. The esteemed scholar, Shaykh Gibril F.

This has no ramification or consequence on the final compilation of the Quran scrupulously undertaken by Sayiddna Zaid bin Thabit under the order of Sayiddna Abu Bakr and with the assistance of Sayiddna Umar may Allah be please with them all. Thank you for your question. If so, and we have full conviction and faith that God has promised to preserve His Book, what does it matter that parts have been lost?
Each piece was verified through his own memory and verified by Sayiddna Umar, who himself was a Hafidh. Moreover, without having learnt the fundamentals of the traditional Islamic sciences, including the auxiliary disciplines such as masaihf Arabic language, and under qualified scholars, approaching translated texts can be hazardous.
If there were any mistakes, the Prophet would correct it immediately and then present it in front of everyone.
When the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him would receive revelation, it would be impressed in his memory. Sayyidna Umar already knew the verse he was looking for by heart as he was a hafidhas did numerous amounts of the other Companions and most likely masxhif person he asked about it!
Was the Originally Compiled Qur’an During the Era of Abu Bakr Incomplete?
Reading isolated texts or detailed religious discussions without firm and sound belief at the onset is somewhat of a grope in the dark. 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. Therefore, when one reads such books we should understand this point and not jump to conclusions when we first read something.
Regardless, the translation offered is at best a very poor translation, and at worst, an outright lie. Many of the scholars, particularly the early ones, used to write books which were a culmination of every piece of information they could find on the given subject. These collections, of course, were not verified by the Prophet or any of the scribes, being as they were, personal writings of each person.
I am not sure which translation the questioner is reading from. Meticulously upright and reliable witnesses were also bought forth to testify that each piece that was written was done so in the presence of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.
And it is protected through its inimitability, such that no one will [ever] be capable to oppose it or produce anything like unto it.
It is clear that Sayyidna Umar was not asking for the verse because he did not know it, or it had not been memorised by others, or that it had been forgotten or lost somehow.
Therefore, I will quote Shaykh Gibril in regards to this individual question:. Whoever claims that he knows them, is a liar. It is of no doubt that these great companions and great scholars knew full well the responsibility and burden they carried in preserving the religion for future generations.
To his deep sorrow, he discovered that the only person who had any record of that verse had been killed in the battle of Yamama and that the verse was consequently lost. Often times, they did not state or separate the strong, weak, fabricated or sound narrations. This means that any matter that has been wholly agreed upon cannot be incorrect or misguidance.
He wanted the material it was written on, a hard copy as it were.
This was not their mission. Sayyidna Abu Bakr, himself a Hafidh, and the greatest of the Companions, affirmed the final compilation. I finish this initial discussion with the following two hadiths which are pertinent to our topic. He masanif it to a dirty carpet which has been rolled up and put away. The second are the members of my household I remind you of your duties to the members of my family.

Whatever the reasons and debate surrounding the personality of Ibn Abu Dawud, it does not take away from his work. Therefore, before we come to the issues you mentioned, it would masahiif us to go over some of these basic realities. Therefore, it is appropriate to ask: However, if one reads further on in the same book and looks at other biographic books, we find a different picture, and that Ibn Abu Dawud is held by the majority of scholars of hadith as an Imam in the science, and indeed many of his contemporaries and subsequent scholars of hadith stated that he was more expert in hadith than his own father!
However, like many such discussions, there is a bigger picture.
But once you unravel it, and spread it out into full view, the full extent of the dirt it contains becomes apparent. The Prophet peace and blessings be upon him had a number of scribes, one of these being Sayyidna Zaid bin Thabit. I kitwb encompassed whatever amount of it has been facilitated [for me to know].
This is also the same explanation given in every other reliable book of Quranic Exegesis. All of which is reprehensible to any believer. Sayyidna Zayd bin Thabit was extremely cautious and diligent when collating the material.
