Holy Quran is the Document of the Right and the Wrong

Assalam u Alaikum,
Dear Farhad Saheb, You did an article some years ago in which you asserted that the angle Gabriel might have brought the first revelation on a plaque and asked the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to read (Iqra) but the Prophet (pbuh) replied: I am not able to read. On the other hand, majority of the Quran exegetes and scholars unanimously hold the view that the Gabriel orally uttered the words Iqra (read!)......So, Farhad Saheb, do you still hold on to your words? Moreover, you had also mentioned that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was not unlettered, while Maulana Maududi translated the words “al-Nabi al-Ummi” as unlettered. I am eagerly waiting for your response!
