Muslims Internet Directory 2Muslims.com Presents Quran Bismillah Alrahman Alraheem
"Alif Laam Raa. A book which we have revealed to you (Muhammad) so that you may lead the people from out of the darkness into the light by their Lord's leave to the path of the All-Mighty, the Praiseworthy.” [Qur'an 14:1]
Is a Book par excellence in the provision of complete guidance for this life and the Hereafter Has influenced the lives of people, and is responsible for the speedy spread of Islam, even now. Has no contradiction or inconsistencies Has remained pure (without interpolation) Is accurate in its presentation of facts Is inimitable in diction, sound and rendering Is available in the language (Arabic) as revealed to the Prophet
What Quran teaches goes DIRECTLY against the pagan Arab culture, religion, and gods, that existed before the Quran was revealed. Quran condemns idol worshipping, but the Arabs, loved their idol gods, and worshipped them regularly. Quran raised the status of women; the Arabs treated women next to animals. The Arabs would never write something that goes against their most important belief of idol worshipping. Quran has no author, and no group or individual in Arabia ever claimed to have written it, nor any group or an individual recited, taught, and explained Quran except the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his followers.
Historians confirm Muhammad’s illiteracy. Muhammad was illiterate (Quran 7:157) The Quran also confirms it. Muhammad (pbuh) had no reason to come up with something like Quran, and cause the entire society of Arabia to become his enemy. Why would he do something like that? Why would he write something going against almost all of the norms of the society, and lose his family, relatives, friends, and other loved ones, and not to mention all the wealth he lost ?
Quran was revealed over a period of 23 years ! A very long time ! Is it possible for someone to maintain the same exact style of Arabic speech, as demonstrated in Quran, for over 23 years ? Also, what the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) used to say is recorded in what we call his Hadith (sunnah). If we look at the Arabic style of the Hadith, and compare it with the style of Quran, we can clearly see that they are clearly DIFFERENT, and DISTINGUISHABLE Arabic styles. The prophet (pbuh) spoke in public It does not make sense that a man has two UNIQUE, Distinguishable, and completely different styles of speech in public. Yet another reason why Muhammad (pbuh) couldn't possibly have written Quran. That leaves us to our last option……….
"Do they not consider (ponder) on the Quran? If it had been from anyone except Allah, they would surely have found in it much discrepancy (contradictions)." Quran 4:82 We have revealed for you (O men) a book in which is a Message for you Will ye not then understand ? Quran 21:10 O mankind ! There hath come to you a direction from your Lord and a healing for the diseases in your hearts, a Guidance and Mercy for Disbelievers. Quran 10:57 YES
l. The Whole Quran: Allah commanded the Prophet (pbuh) to challenge all of creation to create a book of the stature of the Quran "Say: 'If all mankind and the jinn would come together to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce its like even though they exerted all and their strength in aiding one another.’" Quran 17:88
2. Just 10 Chapters Next, Allah made the challenge ostensibly easier by asking those who denied its divine origin to imitate even ten Chapters of the Quran "Or do they say that he has invented it? Say (to them), 'Bring ten invented Chapters like it, and call (for help) on whomever you can besides Allah, if you are truthful." Quran 11:13
3. Just 1 Chapter This final challenge was to produce even a single Chapter to match what is in the Quran, whose shortest Chapter, al-Kawthar, consists of only three verses "And if you all are in doubt about what We have revealed to Our servant, bring a single Chapter like it, and call your witnesses besides Allah (us) if you are truthful." Quran 2:23
Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) teachings & the lives of many Believers who died for the cause of Islam could have gone wasted, if only the Disbelievers had been able to produce a mere three lines of poetry or flowing prose similar to the shortest Chapter of the Quran. Hence, there can be no doubt about the inimitability of the Quran's literary style, about the miracle of its rhyme and the marvel of its rhythm. "And if you all are in doubt about what We have revealed to Our servant, bring a single Chapter like it, and call your witnesses besides Allah (us) if you are truthful." Quran 2:23
It is now fourteen hundred years since the above challenges, but mankind has singularly failed to produce anything similar or something better. This is an Eternal Testimony of the Divine Origin of the Holy Qur'an. The Arab Christians in the Middle East, not to be outwitted, launched a sixteen- year project lately to produce the like of the Quran. BUT who can challenge the Lord of the Universe. The Christian Arabs tasted defeat just like any other challenger to the Quran. And if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our servant, then produce a Chapter like thereunto; And call your witness or helpers (if there are any) besides Allah. If your (doubts) are true. But if ye cannot, And of surety ye cannot Then fear the fire whose fuel is men and stones, which is prepared for those who reject faith. Quran 2:23-24
"Indeed it is We who have sent down the reminder (the Qur'an), and indeed it is Us who shall preserve it” Quran 15:9
A page from the copy of the Holy Quran, from the time of Caliph Uthman, kept in Tashkent Take a copy of the Quran available today and compare. There’s not even a word that’s edited, added or omitted. Another page from the copy of the Holy Quran, from the time of Caliph Uthman, kept in Tashkent Copy of The Holy Qur'an from the time of Caliph Uthman kept in the Topkapi Museum, Istanbul. Surah an-Nur (Light), XXIV, 32-45, in a Holy Qur'an copied on vellum in the early Arabic script called al-maail in the late 2nd/8th century, probably in Mecca or Madinah. It is believed to be one of the two oldest extant Qur'an manuscripts. It is written exceptionally in vertical format and is devoid of any diacritical marks other than an occasional letter pointing indicated by short strokes.
It is He who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth. That he may proclaim it over all religion. Even though the associators may detest (it). (Holy Qur'an 61:9)
