The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Koran: A Contribution to the Decoding of the Language of the Koran

According to Luxenberg, the Qur'an was not written in classical Arabic but in a mixed Arabic-Syriac language, the traders' language of Mecca and it was based on Christian liturgical texts. When the final text of the Qur'an was codified, those working on it did not understand the original sense and meaning of this hybrid trading language any more, and they forcefully and randomly turned it into classical Arabic.

That idea is in serious disagreement with the views of both traditional Muslims and western scholars of Islam
