Judge the past from the Quran, not the Quran from the past.
Muslim historians writing in the Islamic historiographical tradition, developed from hadith literature in the time of the first caliphs!
What! No recorded history, just oral traditions!
History needs to be authentic, not what any Tom, Dick or Abū ‛Īsá Muḥammad ibn ‛Īsá ibn Sawrah ibn Mūsá ibn al Ḍaḥḥāk al-Sulamī al-Sulamī al-Tirmidhī, has to say occurred!
History is important, but it must be the right history.
