The Holy Quran


The Qur'an is a Message from Allah to humanity. This is a holy book which was revealed through the most sacred Angel, Hazrat Jibraeel, to the Prophet Mohammad (saws) piece by piece. The Quran was revealed in a span of 23 years ( 610 AD to 632 AD ). Though the language of original message is Arabic, it has been translated into many other languages. Whenever a portion of Quran was revealed, the prophet used to call Hazrat Zaid bin Sabit to write it down. If he was not available, some other companions (sahaba) were asked to write. There were strict instructions to the scribes not to write any other thing except the verses of the holy Quran.

Surah No. 5, Al Maeda, Ayat No. 10

وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَكَذَّبُواْ بِآيَاتِنَا أُوْلَـئِكَ أَصْحَابُ الْجَحِيمِ

Transaltion :

Those who reject Faith and deny our Ayats will be companions of Fire in the Hereafter.

 
Surah No. 27, An Namal, Ayat No. 1 to 5

o هُدًى وَبُشْرَى لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ o طس تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْقُرْآنِ وَكِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ

o الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَهُم بِالْآخِرَةِ هُمْ يُوقِنُونَ

o إِنَّ الَّذِينَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْآخِرَةِ زَيَّنَّا لَهُمْ أَعْمَالَهُمْ فَهُمْ يَعْمَهُونَ

o أُوْلَئِكَ الَّذِينَ لَهُمْ سُوءُ الْعَذَابِ وَهُمْ فِي الْآخِرَةِ هُمُ الْأَخْسَرُونَ

Translation :

 Ta Sin. These are verses of the Qur'an― A Book that makes (things) clear. A Guide; and Glad Tidings for the Believers, who perform Salat and give Zakat and believe with certainty in the Hereafter. And for those who do not believe in the Hereafter, We have made their deeds (in this world) pleasing in their eyes; so  that they wander about blindly. Such are those for whom there will be a grievous penalty. And in the Hereafter they will be the greatest losers.

 

Surah No.16, Al Nahl, Ayat No. 64


وَمَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ إِلاَّ لِتُبَيِّنَ لَهُمُ الَّذِي اخْتَلَفُواْ فِيهِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ

Translation :

And We sent down the Book to you for express the purpose, that you should make clear to them those things in which they differ, and that it should be a guide and a mercy to those who believe.

 
Surah No.15, Al Hijr, Ayat No. 9

إِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَإِنَّا لَهُ لَحَافِظُونَ

Translation :

We have, without doubt, sent down the message and we have assured to Guard it (from corruption)

 
Surah No 56 , Al Waqiah, Ayats No. 77 to 80


o لَّا يَمَسُّهُ إِلَّا الْمُطَهَّرُونَ o فِي كِتَابٍ مَّكْنُونٍ o إِنَّهُ لَقُرْآنٌ كَرِيمٌ

o تَنزِيلٌ مِّن رَّبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

Translation :


This is indeed a Qur'an most honourable, In a Book well-guarded ( With Allah ), Which no one can touch but those who are pure : A Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.

Comments :

Please note that Quran was completely ready before the death of the prophet and later, during the caliphate of the third caliph Hazrat Usman (ra), copies of the Holy Quran were prepared in large numbers and circulated in its pure form to different countries , the same still exist. Traditionally, the complete book was memorized by large number of Huffaz.(Plural of Hafiz) In the present situation there are lakhs of Huffaz in the world, who have memorized the holy book.

Allah has guaranteed that He will protect the Qur'an from human tampering, and today's readers can find exact copies of it all over the world. The Qur'an of today is the same as the Qur'an revealed to Mohammad (saws).

It is evident from the above that the purity of the Holy Quran remained undisputed. Since Prophet Mohammad (saws) is the final Messenger of Allah to humanity, therefore the Qur'an is bound to be the last Message which Allah has sent to us. Its predecessors such as the Taurait (Torah),Zaboor ( Psalms), and Injeel (Bible) have all been superseded.

A hostile critic of another religion spoke about the holy Quran that. "Quran is the only book which had remained in its pure form even after more than 1400 years.

According to one of the analyst , the Quran is comprises of the following segments :

1 . Allah had defined Himself and proved that He is The Only One.

2 . Allah had given knowledge to the Bani Adam ( Human being) about day of Judgement

( Roze Jaza) and proved the theory of Resurrection.-

3. Allah had described Jannat ( Paradise ) and Jahannum ( Hell )

4 .Allah had illustrated the happenings during the period of some of the Messengers.-

5 .Allah had clearly defined the guidelines for spending day to day life in this world by the human beings and the rewards in the life hereafter.
