The Noble Qur'an - When, Why & How

Post by Mikail on Sun Oct 28, 2007 9:33 am

The Qur'an ("Qor-Ann") is a Message from Allah to humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from the Almighty Himself (swt) to the angel Gabriel (Jibra'eel) to the Prophet Muhammad (saas). This message was given to the Prophet (saas) in pieces over a period spanning approximately 23 years (610 CE to 622 CE). The Prophet (saas) was 40 years old when the Qur'an began to be revealed to him, and he was 63 when the revelation was completed. The language of the original message was Arabic, but it has been translated into many other languages.

The Qur'an is one leg of two which form the basis of Islam. The second leg is the Sunnah of the Prophet (saas). What makes the Qur'an different from the Sunnah is primarily its form. Unlike the Sunnah, the Qur'an is quite literally the Word of Allah, whereas the Sunnah was inspired by Allah but the wording and actions are the Prophet's. The Qur'an has not been expressed using any human's words. Its wording is letter for letter fixed by no one but Allah.

Prophet Muhammad (saas) was the final Messenger of Allah to humanity, and therefore the Qur'an is the last Message which Allah has sent to us. Its predecessors such as the Torah, Psalms, and Gospels have all been superceded. It is an obligation - and blessing - for all who hear of the Qur'an and Islam to investigate it and evaluate it for themselves. 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 Muhammad (saas).

Nicely written! Indeed no one can ever change the Qur'an like they change and lied about the other books that God had revealed to us.

Muhammad (pbuh) was the last prophet on earth, Adam (pbuh) even new that Muhammad was going to be the last prophet, so did Jesus [Isa(pbuh)],

He had told the true followers, that there will be a prophet coming soon, and told them to follow him! But at first it was illegal and against the law to believe and follow Jesus, as the Jews denied the prophet and had the power. The believers had to hide this message that Jesus had told them, until the day that Muhammad (saas) came to reveal the truth again 600 years later.
