The Arabic letters used, however, did not have the dots that are included in the Arabic alphabetic, proving that the manuscript dates back to ages ago. The dots were added in a later stage in the Arabic alphabetic to distinguish similar-looking letters.

In addition to finding the Holy Quran manuscript, the young man has also been reported to have found the ‘Dhul Fiqar sword’ believed to be offered as a gift by the Prophet Muhammed to the fourth Caliph Ali bin Abi Talib, who is also his son-in-law.

The Prophet was believed to have lived between 570 AD and 632 AD and the Quran was discovered and introduced to the world between 610 and 632.
