Re: Is this correct about Russia`s military?

I read in an article that Russia`s military is 40% muslim. I find it too hard to believe. Can anyone throw any light on this?
That's hard to believe without reliable sources. Putin has restored Nationality-Based Units since 2016, according to Eurasia Daily Monitor - so this would be notable.

Re: The Quran versus the Arab Oral Tradition

I did so many times in this and other threads. Allāh is just a way of pronouncing LH, shorthand for Eloah - only after the third or fourth century AD this word identified a deity.
