Vahiy katipliği ve Hz. Peygamber'in vahiy katipleri
The recording of the Qur'an as a written book followed three stages. The first stage took place at the time of the Prophet, the rest after his demise. The first stage, which was supervised by the Prophet himself, produced written fragments from the Qur'an. In the second stage, these fragments, which were scattered in the hands of various Companions, were brought together between two covers as a book (mushaf). In the third stage, which took place during the Caliphate of Uthman, several copies of this text were made. This thesis is about the first and the most important stage. The following issues are discussed because of their relevance: revelation as a concept, emergence of writing (kitabah), phases of its. development, the status of writing in the Arab society, and the areas where writing was used at the time the Holy Qur'an was revealed in Mekka and Medine. The names of the scribes of the Prophet Muhammad are determined after a critical survey, which made it -92-clear that his scribes consisted of the following five persons: Ali b. Abi Talib, Uthman b. Affân, Ubay b. KaİD, Zayd b. Thabit, Abdullah b. Sa'd b. Abi Sharh. It is also explained that why the other names who contributed to the writing are not considered as scribes. The contributions of each one of these figures are explained.
