Q: If a non-Muslim is arguing with me that the scientific facts mentioned in the Quran might be added or written by Muslims themselves after the discovery of different things such as the creation of the universe (big bang mentioned in the Quran) then few years later Muslims added new things such as the creation of humans etc. in the Quran.
How can I reply to such a question by a Hindu etc.?
Will it be clear to him if I tell him that there are old Quran manuscripts preserved in museums which are 500 years old or later?
A: Tell him that you don’t understand and that he must directly refer to an aalim.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
