Islam started to spread from the Middle East soon after it's inception in the 7th century, When Islam spread out of the Middle East they invaded North Africa, Southern Europe, India and beyond, what began as a struggle for religious expansion turned into a violent thirst for political power resulting in the deaths of millions of people, wholesale slaughter carried out in the name of religion that's still at full throttle to this very day.

Zayd ibn Thabit who was born in 610 CE became the personal scribe to the Islamic prophet Muhammad and came from the Ansa people who were also known as the helpers. Zayd joined the ranks of the Muslim army at the age of 19. After Muhammad died in 632CE the Caliph Uthman ordered all copies of the Koran to be collected and burnt with the exception of one of them, Zayd ibn Thabit under the instructions of Uthman got all the other Korans together and condensed them into this one single book...and that's the book used by Muslims today, Zayd ibn Thabit died in 660 CE.

The royal wedding made a change today from all the politics of the day, not necessary viewing for me but what I did see was excellent and nice to see people enjoying themselves in what turned out to be another one of those days that millions of people will cherish.

There were no less than 15 different versions of the Koran still in circulation at the time of Muhammad's death in 632, after the death of Muhammad the Caliph Uthman on a personal whim chose the Zayd ibn Thabit version of the Koran to be the only one allowed to remain in existence and ordered all the remaining Koran’s that were in any way different from the one he had chosen to be completely and utterly destroyed by the burning of every single one them.
