A Hypothesis: The Torah Needs to be verified

A Hypothesis: The Torah

Needs to be verified

By: Dr. Hamdi ‘Abd al-All

If we agree with those who believes that the Torah of today is different from the Revealed Torah for scientific and religious reasons and if we agree with those who find a correlation between this Torah and ‘zra’s, still there remain, some important questions which we have not found decisive answers for yet.

As to the relation between the Torah and the question that poses itself is: What did Zra use to keep with him? Musa’s (pbuh) Torah or a copy of it?

If we accepted, for scientific reasons, that it was a copy of Musa’s Torah, the question to be asked will be: Who did the copying” Was it ‘Zra himself and was what he had a copy passed to him by somebody else?

If we assumed that ‘Zra copied the Torah from the original himself, to what extent was his copying accurate and perfect? Did he do the copying or was he helped others? Was his copy checked by being compared with the original? and if so who did the checking? Then, was it facsimile of the original or were there some discrepancies?

If there were discrepancies, how much and of what nature.

If we agreed that ‘Zra’s copying was perfect, in what form and what did the Torah from which he copied look like? Was it complied in one book or was it a compilation of separate sheets? And who collected and compiled the Torah? Was it ‘Zra himself or was it someone else?

If we assumed that ‘Zra was both the collector and compiler of the Torah on what basis and on whose authority did he do the collection and compilation of his Torah?
