Who really wrote the Qur’an?

Neither the Bible nor the Qu’ran was dictated from heaven but both have a human source.

Christians, bar some fundamentalists, emphasise the human source but many muslims say Allah dictated the Qu’ran.

This article rightly questions it

A good book to read is Tom Holland In the Shadow of the Sword

    I do not share your high opinion of Holland. who fails to acknowledge real scholars who anticipated him, starts off with a refuted horror anecdote, and in a footnote that seems to refer to Maimonides makes three separate factual errors. For a scholarly critque, see https://www.theguardian.com/books/2012/may/04/in-shadow-of-sword-tom-holland; “I have not seen a book about Arabia that is so irresponsible and unreliable since Kamal Salibi’s The Bible Came from Arabia (1985).”
