How can one expect any discrepancy, when there have existed several million “Huffaz” (those who has memorized the entire Quran, word for word, cover to cover) in every generation since the time of the Prophet and in our own time. Should anyone alter a syllable of the original text of the Quran, these Huffaz would at once expose the mistake.

Just like the Quran contains knowledge about the natural world, it also contains information about the inner dimensions of our souls. It relates to our feelings, wants and needs. The Quran informs us that we have a purpose in life, and that following God’s guidance will lead us to inner peace
It was the Prophet's way to point out the good qualities of those who sinned and fell into error... The Prophet's approach, by contrast, inspires virtue. When reminded of `Abdullah's frequent drunkenness, he boasted of that man's possessing the greatest virtue of loving Allah and His Messenger.
