The Qur’an did exist as a written document in the life time of the Prophet, as mentioned in the following record: The Prophet said: “Do not take the Qur’an on a journey with you, for I am afraid lest it should fall into the hands of the enemy (i.e. the enemy may seize it and may quarrel with you over it)”. – [Muslim, III, No.4607,4608,4609; Bukhari, IV, No.233]
