It true that most of us that call ourselves Muslims don’t know much details about the Qur’aan. This is not only bad but also saddening. Today I want us to spend few minutes to ponder on these verses from the Noble Qur’aan so that we know more about the only Book that will stand as the source of guidance till the end of the world, Allaahu akbar!
#Fact1: The Noble Qur’aan is easy to memorize, take the courage!
“”Hence, indeed, We made this Qur’an easy to bear in mind: who, then is willing to take it to heart?”” –Chapter 54: Verses 17, 22, 32, 40 (self-repeating)
#Fact2: The Noble Qur’aan was revealed to the last Prophet and Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him)
“”Praise be to Allah Who has revealed the Book (Qur’an) to His slave (Muhammad [peace be upon him]) and has not placed therein any crookedness.”” –Chapter 18: Verse 1
#Fact3: The Noble Qur’aan can never be corrupted, no matter the plots of the disbelievers.
“”Surely We have revealed the reminder (Qur’an) and We will most certainly guard it (from corruption).”” –Chapter 15: Verse 9
#Fact 4: There is NO contradiction in the Qur’aan both in wordings and meanings!
“”Will they not then ponder on the Qur’an? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much discrepancy.”” Chapter 4: Verse 82
#Fact5: The Qur’aan is a healing and mercy for the Muslims!
“”And We reveal (stage by stage) of the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy for believers, and to the unjust it causes nothing but loss after loss.”” –Chapter 17: Verse 82
#Fact6: Nothing can ever resemble the Qur’aanic message!
“”And if you are in doubt concerning that which We reveal unto Our slave (Muhammad) then produce a surah (chapter) of the like thereof, and call your witnesses besides Allah if you are truthful.”” –Chapter 2: Verse 23
Comparing these details with the Christian Bible, one will see that;
– The Noble Qur’aan is memorized from A-Z but the Bible has never been memorized from A-Z.
– The Noble Qur’aan was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) but the whole Bible as we have it today was not revealed to Jesus (upon him be peace).
– The Noble Qur’aan can never undergo any corruption whereas the Bible has been corrupted by the scribes.
– There are No contradictions in the Qur’aan but certainly there exist contradictions in the Bible.
“”Will they then not meditate on the Qur’an, or are there locks on their hearts?””
–Chapter 47: Verse 24
“”And the Noble Qur’aan is not such as could be forged by those besides Allah, but it is a verification (of revelations) that went before it and a fuller explanation of the Book – there is no doubt – from the Lord of the Worlds.”” –Chapter 10: Verse 37″
