These 'scribbles,' as you say, are photographs of actual Quran manuscripts. At times they are indeed difficult to read, but the ones shown here are pretty clear, I think. Let me know if you have specific questions, and I may be able to answer.

Designed to fail b/c it was only phase I. Its purpose was to drive up cost, increase wealth gap, run private insurers out of business or to govt reliance, so authoritarians could swoop in & "save" the day w/ their real goal: Govt monopoly (AKA "single payer")

A great experience, Ahmed. I was in Üsküdar (visiting ISAM), but without meeting him, something I hope to rectify one day.

You are deluded. Government monopoly always costs more, because it is not accountable to pressures of competition.

"Lord willing" (a common phrase among Christians) is indeed similar in sentiment. The key question would seem to be the identity of the Lord whose will is being referenced, a detail upon which the beauty of each phrase is certainly contingent.

Good question. Its answers, I think, would need to be considered on a case-by-case basis.

I wouldn't generally expect scribes to be willfully modifying Quran text. My view is that they generally wrote what they thought to be correct. Willful interventions might include deliberate updating of orthography, things like that.

You have just made me realize that I don't even own an English translation. Is there one you recommend, Johanna?
