I post this short comment as an addendum to my recent post: The failure of western biblical scholarship to come to certain results in the quest for the historical Jesus
Western historians chose to operate within certain materialist constraints which originate from the secular rationalism of the European Enlightenment. See the article Philosophy of History in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
These historians therefore reject a priori information about historical events from Revelation. Muslim historians reject such an unwarranted bias. See the excellent work of Dr Shabbir Akhtar of the University of Oxford: The New Testament in Muslim Eyes (Routledge Reading the Bible in Islamic Context Series).
For Muslims the Qur’an is the actual speech of God Almighty. It was not created in the 6th century (or at any other moment). God knows all of history timelessly and perfectly. He is therefore a more reliable source of historical information about a subject than any mere human could ever be.
Do purchase this excellent work which is essential reading for an Islamic view of Christian origins:
