Oh come on. This is all a simple "point of view bias" situation. The dating of the texts brackets the time which Islamic tradition says they should have been created.

From the "pro" Islamic viewpoint, this is nothing more than another confirmation of their existing claims.

Those who want to cause trouble for Islam, are the one's pointing at the earlier GUESSTIMATE date, and trying to make a big deal out of it all.

If we were to radiocarbon date, oh, say, the Declaration of Independence, that report too would have bracket dates, showing it to be between three hundred and one hundred years old. Someone who wanted to make a fuss and play paranoid "woo-hoo" games, could make a big deal about the OPENING bracket date, and suggest that the United States was "born" in 1715, and that Americans might have their entire sense of well being overturned by this.

It's nonsense.
