    as a muslim, i believe that it should be thus and not surprised.

    but i wonder if someone can plant this to get good review and then produce "similar" leaves that could have anti-islamic writings, thereby creating confusion ("if you believed that, why reject this?"). the reason that my skeptic-sense tingles (skeptic NOT of the qur'an, al-iyadhubillah, but of the 'discovery') is because it sounds too good. indeed, i do not deny that it could be true and in which case, we muslims stand vindicated.

    curiously, the leaf that is found is from surah maryam includes the ayat that refutes that Allah ta'ala has a son.
    the other leaf is a mention of aS'Hab kahf, who were a sign for people of that time who had begun to deny resurrection.

    ---
    and of course, it could be genuine. if it is, then alHamdulillah, a sign to further strengthen our iman and that refutes orientalist drivel that qur'an is a post-dated work put together and transmitted by the conspiracy of hundreds of thousands of people of the first three centuries.

    Allah ta'ala knows best.
