Can The Event Of Hira Narrative Be Fabricated?
I watched the 23 question series on the event of revelation. There Ust. Ghamidi argued that Quran gives a completely different narrative of first revelation. And while discussing the hadiths with “Iqra” narrative, he focused on the Ibn Ishaq version of the story, where he argued that, it was a dream, rather than a revelation. I was happy to learn that.
But, just today I watched the Al Muqaddimah episode on source of biography of Prophet SM. There I found the mention of this paper
It clearly shows that the story from England (730CE) and Ibn ishaq (751ce) have almost the same story. Which gives me a view that, the whole incident of Hira, verses 96:1-5 and confirmation by Waraqa is just a myth.
