Yet Muslim scholar Reza Aslan admits that the Qur'an is wrong, for Jesus "was most definitely crucified." Since Aslan has rejected the inspiration and authority of Islam's central text, we can only wonder why he calls himself a Muslim (and why Muslims aren't calling him out as an apostate).
Regardless, it's nice to know that when we discuss the crucifixion of Jesus with our Muslim friends, we can appeal to Reza Aslan as a scholarly Muslim authority on the historical fact of Jesus' death on the cross.
