History of the compilation of Quran
The companions of Prophet Muhammad (s.) served in transferring the Islamic holy book to future generations. The Quran was compiled into a book in the time of the first caliph, Abu Bakr
The journey of the Quran, which began to be revealed to Prophet Muhammad (s) during the month of Ramadan in 610, in its original form to the present day is a characteristic that none of the previous sacred books have.
The companions of Prophet Muhammad (s), who were great people, played an important role in the compilation of the Quran, leaving an interesting story behind.
During the 23 years of Muhammad’s (s) time as a prophet, the verses of the Quran were memorized as they were revealed, and about 42 scribes wrote the verses on different materials such as paper, cloth, bone fragments and leather.
In ancient times, literacy was a skill that few people had and Muhammad (s) himself did not know how to read or write.
During the time of Caliph Abu Bakr, when 70 people who knew the Quran by heart (qari), were killed in the Battle of Yamama, Umar ibn al-Khattab became concerned and appealed to Abu Bakr in order to compile the Quran into a book.
