While Shi'a and Sunni accept the same sacred text, the Qur'an, some claim that Shi'ah dispute the current version, i.e. they add two additional surahs known as al-Nurayn and al-Wilaya.[1] Nonetheless, Shi'as claim that they are falsely accused of this, as they believe, like Sunnis, that the Qur'an has never been changed.[2] [3] The Qurān [1] (Arabic: , literally the recitation; also called The Noble Quran; also transliterated as Quran, Koran (the traditional term in English), and Al-Quran), is the central religious text of Islam. ...
