The Holy Quran
What is the Qur’an?
The Holy Quran is the pure word of Allah, the Lord of Glory, which was revealed to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) through the angel Gabriel (PBUH) over 23 years. The Qur’an is the highest of the books sent by Hakimullah by Allah and is a guide for all humanity. It has 114 chapters and about 6666 verses that explain God’s power, guidance for humanity, and historical events.
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) taught the Qur’aan to more than one hundred thousand Companions, and about 10,000 of them were memorizers of the Qur’aan.
Format of Quran
- It has 114 chapters (Arabic: Surah), and each chapter is named
2 It has about 66 6666 verses (Arabic: آی ah) (the number varies according to the calculations of the scholars)
- It is divided into 30 parts, which are easy to complete in one month. Is the same length
- It is also divided into seven equal parts, called the Manzil, for reciting in a week.
- All chapters of the Qur’an have been placed in the category of Mukki and Madani. The Meccan Surahs are the chapters that were revealed before the Hijra, i.e., the Prophet of Islam’s pilgrimage from Makkah to Madinah. Madani Surahs were revealed after Hajj.
- Chapter order is not connected with the order of revelation in this way.
- Except 9TH chapter, each chapter begins with Bismillah-ur-Rehman Rahim – an Arabic phrase meaning “in the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful”. However, there are still 114 instances of Bismillah in the Qur’an, its presence in verse 27:30 as the beginning of Solomon’s letter to the Queen of Sheba.
The purity and protection of Al-Quds
- Muslims believe that the Qur’an is 100% the words of Allah Almighty. There are no human words in the Qur’an as in other religious scriptures. And
- The Qur’an will not change groups from time to time like other religions. The same Qur’an, without any change in its original text in Arabic, has been around the world since the beginning of all Muslims.
- The Qur’an has been translated by different scholars in different worlds. In each translated language, the words chosen by the translators may be different, but the meanings will never be different.
- There is no doubt in the Qur’an, and no one can compare a single Surah (chapter) with the Surah of the Holy Qur’an. It is Kufr to believe in every word of the Qur’an and to deny even a single word of the Qur’an.
- No scribble errors or scientific errors were found in the Qur’an. No one can prove that the Qur’an contradicts the scientific facts to date. Rather, the Qur’an was the basis and source for many scientific facts.
Allaah says in the Qur’aan:
“Surely We have revealed this great admonition (the Qur’an), and verily We shall protect it.”
Chapter 15: Verse 9
As God Almighty has promised, in the last 1400 years, He has saved this glorious Qur’an from various enemies of Islam.
