What is the “Qur’an”?

Qur’an is the Clear Book of Allah that is not approached by falsehood neither from before it nor from behind it, sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all Praise.
It is the never-ending, ever-lasting miracle that is continuous through the course of Time until Allah inherits the earth and what is upon it.
It is the Strong Rope of Allah, the Straight Path and the Light which guides to the truth and the right way.
In it is news of what was before you, what is to come after you and a source of judgment between you.
Now some background information regarding the Qur’an.  First of all, the Qur’an makes a claim that it is a divine revelation – that is, it was sent down from the almighty God to Muhammad through inspiration.  And Allah says: < Muhammad, he is not speaking from himself, his own ideas or his own ambitions or his own emotions and feelings.  But this is a revelation  (Qur’an) which has been revealed to him
Therefore, if we are to convince you or anyone else of the authenticity of the Qur’an, we must prove 1) that it was impossible for Muhammad to manufacture such a book 2) we must prove that it was equally impossible for any human agency to have created it.
Let us think about this.  The Qur’an makes the statement: And we created the human beings from a hanging clot that was clinging to the wall of the womb.  How did the prophet Muhammad know that the embryo started out as a clot hanging and clinging to the wall of the uterus of the mother? Did he have a telescope? Did he have a microscope? Did he have some kind of X-ray vision? How did he receive this knowledge when this was discovered 47 years ago? How did he know that the ocean have a barrier between them to separate the salt and the fresh water? How did he know that? How did he know that the sun and the moon and the planets are all swimming in an orbit that has been ordered for them? How did he know them when these things just been discovered 25 or 30 years ago?  Technology and science, the sophistication of which you and I well know, have just discovered these things.  How did Muhammad know them fifteen hundred years ago? An uneducated shepherd who could not read or write, a man raised in the desert, how could he say something like this? How could he produce something like this?  How could anyone else living with him before and after, produce something that has been discovered recently? Impossible.  How could a man who never left the Arabian Peninsula, a man who never sailed on a ship make such clear and astounding descriptions that were recently discovered in this half of the 20th century? Also if this is not enough, let me mention to you that the Qur’an has 114 chapters, over 6000 verses and there were hundreds of people in the time of the prophet Muhammad who memorized this book entirely.  Was he come kind of genius?  How did that happen? Did anyone memorize any of the gospels?  Did anyone memorize the Torah? The Psalms? The Old and the New Testament? Nobody, not even the pope himself.  But there are millions of Muslims today, who has memorized the entire book.  This is the ambition of every Muslims.  Not some but every Muslims.  How many Christians have you meet in your life that as memorized the Bible? You have never meet any Christians that memorized the Bible because you have never meet a Christian who even knew what word the whole Bible.  Because the Christians themselves have over 700 different denominations and there are around 39 different versions of the Bible with different books and different versions, with different amount of verses and different amount of chapters and they don’t agree to that.  So how could they even memorize what they don’t agree about?
Finally, this book, Qur’an, has been universally preserved without the slightest alternation of any kind in fifteen centuries.
If all of these are true, and if it is all true, would you agree that this book is quite profound and unique to say the least? Would you be honest enough to say that? Of course you would if you are honest.
“Do they not then consider the Qur’an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradiction and error.”
[Qur’an, An-Nisa 4:82]
Calling the Qur’an amazing is not something done only by Muslims, who have an appreciation for the Revelation, it has been labeled amazing by non-Muslims as well. Please read our informative articles below to see why this is so.
