The Holy Quran – The Word of God
Is the Qur’an the true word of God? Was it made by Hazrat Muhammad? They have been the subject of contentious questions and debates between Muslims and non-Muslims. To get the answer this question, we must go back to the Prophet Muhammad and the history of Islam. We must see what the Qur’an says, and see if it is really the word of God or whether it was created by Muhammad.
Let’s think about it. If Muhammad (PBUH) really made the Qur’an to promote himself, he would use it to his advantage. But it happens in some cases that the Qur’an says the same thing that contradicts the opinion of the Prophet Muhammad, and sometimes it is too late in Islamic society to decide on a serious issue to test Muslims, even though it was the first time. Could have come in the day and finished the case.
If someone came and accused the wife of a great king of adultery, some people started believing in that person and started talking about him. This king has the media and can easily say that this person is a liar and knows that people will believe the king’s media. Should a king who loves his wife more than anyone else use the media and say that this person is a liar? This happened with Hazrat Muhammad. Hazrat Muhammad Muhammad spent a month in trouble until the Qur’an was revealed by God and said that this person is a liar. If the Holy Prophet had made the Qur’an, he would have prepared some verses from day one and said that this person is a liar. If he really had the equipment to end it, he wouldn’t have spent a month in agony and suffering.
Not only that, but Abu Bakr, the father of Aisha, the wife of the Prophet, used to help one of the people who talked about Abu Aisha. When the Qur’an revealed that Ayesha was innocent, Abu Bakr swore that he would never help her again. The Qur’an commanded Abu Bakr to forgive him so that God forgave Abu Bakr. If Prophet Muhammad had composed the Qur’an, would he have easily forgiven him? I don’t think so
The Qur’an deals with the stories of God’s prophets from Adam to Jesus. It enacts legislation in various aspects of life, from politics to economics to social affairs to inheritance laws, which are truly miraculous because the Qur’an covers all inheritance issues in just 4 verses. Not only that, but some recently discovered scientific facts were actually written in the Quran 1400 years ago.
The Prophet Muhammad never dealt with poetry. He never wrote a book because it was illiterate. He was never concerned with the beliefs of Jews and Christians. He was well known for his good manners and honesty, and his whole tribe called him truthful and honest. When he is forty years old, he comes up with very convincing verses that amaze the Arabs who were known for their eloquence. Isn’t it worth considering? Even the Qur’an challenges the Arabs and all the people after them to write a chapter like a chapter. This challenge has not been met for 1400 years.
