Method of preservations of the Quran during the Prophet's time
Besides, those of the Companions (pbut) who were literate used to keep a written record of several portions of the Holy Qur'an. In this manner, the text of the Holy Qur'an had been preserved in four different ways during the lifetime of the Holy Prophet (PBUH):
a) The Holy Prophet (PBUH) had the whole text of the Divine Messages from the beginning to the end committed to writing by the scribes of revelations.
b) Many of the Companions learned the whole text of the Qur'an, every syllable of it, by heart.
c) All the illustrious Companions, without an exception, had memorized at least some portions of the Holy Qur'an, for the simple reason that it was obligatory for them to recite it during worship. An estimate of the number of the illustrious Companions may be obtained from the fact that one hundred and forty thousands Companions had participated in the Last Pilgrimage performed by the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
d) A considerable number of the literate Companions kept a private record of the text of the Qur'an and satisfied themselves as to the purity of their record by reading it out to the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
The Virtue of he who learns the Qur'an and teaches it
(1) The Messenger of Allah ! Blessings and Peace be upon him’ said: "The best of you is he who learns the Qur’aan and teaches it." (Reported by Bukhari)
(2) And he ! also said: “Will not any of you go to the Masjid and learn or read two verses from the Book of Allah ‘The Exalted’, Mighty and Glorified be He? (For) that is better for him than two she-camels, and three (verses) are better for him than three (she-camels), and four (verses) are better for him than four (she-camels). And the number (of verses read in total) are better than the same number of camels.” (Reported by Muslim)
(3) And he ! said: “There is no envy (acceptable) except in two (cases): a person whom Allah has given the Qur’aan and recites it throughout the night and throughout the day. And a person whom Allah has given wealth, that he gives out throughout the night and throughout the day.” (Reported by Bukhari and Muslim)
The Virtue of Reading the Holy Quran
(4) The Messenger of Allah ! said: "Whosoever reads a letter from the Book of Allah will receive a Hasanah (good deed) from it (i.e. his recitation), and the Hasanah (good deed) is multiplied by ten. I do not say that Alif-laam-meem is (considered as) a letter (in reward), rather Alif is a letter, laam is a letter, and meem is a letter." (Reported by At-Tirmidhi, Ad-Darami)
(5) And he ! also said: "He who is skillful in reciting the Qur’aan is with the unveiled, honorable, and pious (i.e. Hur al-Ain). And he who stutters when reading the Qur’aan, (and its recitation) is difficult upon him, will receive two rewards." (Reported by Bukhari)
(6) And he ! said: "Verily he who has nothing of the Qur’aan in his heart, is like a house (which has been) destroyed." (Reported by At-Tirmidhi)
Praise be to Allah.
(And Rattil the Qur'an Tartil.) meaning, recite it slowly, for that will help in understanding the Qur'an and contemplating it. This is how the Prophet (pbuh) used to recite.
(Verily, he has been given
this windpipe from the windpipes of the family of Dawud.) Referring to Abu
Musa. Abu Musa replied, "If I knew that you had been listening to my
recitation, I would have truly beautified it for you.'' It has been
narrated from Ibn Mas`ud that he said, "Do not scatter the (recitation of)
Qur'an out like the scattering of sand, and do not rush through it like
the hasty recitation of poetry. Stop at its amazing parts and make your
heart move with it. None of you should let his concern be to reach the end
of the chapter.'' This has been recorded by Al-Baghawi. Al-Bukhari
recorded from Abi Wa'il that he said, "A man came to Ibn Mas`ud and said,
`I read the Mufassal chapters (from Qaf to An-Nas) last night in one unit
of prayer.' Ibn Mas`ud said, `This is rushing like the haste of reciting

Martin Wroe, LONDON - Noah's Ark has been found on the Turkish-Iranian border, 32 kilometres from Mount Ararat, according to the leader of a team of scientists that has been investigating the site for six years. The Turkish government is so convinced by the findings that, after years of intransigence, it has designated the site one of special archaeological interest and agreed to its excavation next summer.
The remote site contains a buried, ship-like object, resting an altitude of 2,300 metres. At 170 metres long and 45 metres wide, it conforms almost exactly to the 300 cubit by 50 cubit boat that God told Noah to build, according to Genesis 6 in the Bible.
On surrounding terrain, the American and Middle Eastern scientists have identified huge stones with holes carved at one end, which they believe are "drogue-stones," dragged behind ships in the ancient world to stabilise them. Radar soundings indicate unusual levels of iron-oxide distribution.
