In the Name of God, the All-Merciful, the Compassionate


All Praise is due to Allah, who has no partners, Peace and Blessings be upon His Final Messenger, Muhammed, and upon his family and companions. Ameen!

What follows is the paper based on the debate between Mr A. Green and J. Smith at South Bank University on Wednesday, 29 May 1996. There apparently seemed to be some confusion by the Christian contingent about the title of the debate, which they seemed to think was "Is the Qur’an the Word of God". However, it has always been very clear from the first invitation to Jay Smith for this debate (see Appendix 1), that the title was "The Sources of Islam", and the subject matter was to be the various papers written by J. Smith on his external historical critique of Islam (See Appendix 1).

The writers of this paper assume readers to be familiar with Smith’s material, so for the most part do not give details on Smith’s arguments within the paper.
