How old is the oldest Quran

The oldest known Quranic manuscript is the Birmingham Quran manuscript, which is housed in the University of Birmingham’s Cadbury Research Library. Radiocarbon dating has shown that the parchment on which the manuscript is written dates back to between 568 and 645 CE, with a 95.4% probability. This means that the manuscript is at least 1375 years old, and could be as old as 1450 years. However, it’s worth noting that while the manuscript itself is quite old, it’s not necessarily the oldest Quran in existence, as there may be other Quranic manuscripts that have not yet been discovered or studied in detail.
