The pages were discovered bound within the pages of another Quran from the late seventh century at the library of the University of Birmingham.

Written in ink in an early form of Arabic script on parchment made from animal skin, the pages contain parts of the Suras, or chapters, 18 to 20, which may have been written by someone who actually knew the Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) who founded the Islamic faith, Daily Mail reports.

The pages were carbon dated by experts at the University of Oxford, which showed it could be the oldest Quran in the world.

But now several historians have said that the parchment might rewrite the early history of Islam.
