The Holy Quran (Al- Quran). The Complete Code of Human Life. The best blessing for the Muslim Ummah for the human welfare and the salvation of worldly life- is the Holy Qur’an, (the Word of Almighty Allah).

Referring to its identity, the Quran says – “Surely it is the honorable Quran, which is in a preserved book, none shall touch it except those who are pure”. (Surahtul Waqiya: 77, 78, 79). Also, it has been stated – “Rather it is the honorable Qur’an.” Recorded in Lawhe Mahfuj.’ (Surahtul Buruj: 21, 22).
In the terminology of Islam, the books that Almighty Allah has sent down as guidance for the guidance of mankind are called ‘’Asmani Kitab’’. That is, books containing the words of Allah are called ‘’Asmani Kitab’’. Almighty Allah sent His messages to the Messengers through Gibrael(As). Then the prophets and messengers conveyed it to the people.

Allah has revealed a total of 104 heavenly books. Among them, 4 are big and famous and the rest 100 are small books. The smaller books are called Sahifa.

The four famous books were revealed on 4 Prophets.


1. Tawrat – revealed to Prophet Musa (As)).
2. Jabur – revealed to Prophet Dawud (AS).
3. Injeel – revealed to Prophet Isa (As).

The history of revelation of the Holy Quran.

 

The Holy Quran
The Holy Quran


The Quran is a guide or guide for the all-around welfare and liberation of mankind. The Holy Quran has been revealed by Allah Almighty as a document of life and liberation for all times, all countries, and all people. The authenticity of the Quran in terms of its preservation is concerned. Fourteen hundred centuries have passed and no change or alteration has taken place in the Holy Quran. The text that is present today is exactly the same text that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (saw). Allah Almighty says in Quran: “We have, without doubt, sent down the message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption).” (Quran, 15:9)

The Holy Qur’an was first revealed to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) in the cave of Hira at the age of 40 in the month of Ramadan. Almighty Allah has said in the holy Quran “Ramadhan is the (month) in which we sent down the Quran.” (Al Baqarah 2:185)
It is evident that the Holy Quran is the miracle of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the savior of mankind, from Allah through the angel Gabriel over a long period of 23 years.
Six months before the revelation of the Holy Quran, Almighty Allah was preparing Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) for this great work through a dream.


It is narrated from Hazrat Ayesha Siddiqa (Ra): that revelation to the beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) began through a dream. What he saw in his dreams was reflected in his life like the light of day.

Before receiving the revelation through Hazrat Jibrael (A.S.), he gradually became a lover of solitude, engrossed in the meditation of Allah while hiding in the cave of Hera, and began to think deeply about the great creation and its purpose.
When the food and water ran out, he would go home only to collect them. Sometimes his beloved wife Hazrat Khadija (RA) used to bring him food in Hera cave. One day Gabriel (A.S.) came to Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and told him in a deep voice to recite ‘Iqra'(Read). Beloved Prophet (PBUH) was stunned with amazement. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) told Jibrael (As) in an excited voice, “I don’t know how to read”.
Gabriel (A.S.) then pressed the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.) on his chest and said again, read. The third time when Gabriel (A.S.) hugged him and let him go and said, Read!
Then the Holy Prophet (PBUH) [Read] the first five verses of Revelation, ‘’ Read, In the name of your Lord Who created. He created man from clotted blood. Recite, your Lord the Most Merciful, who taught with the pen, taught man what he did not know.’’ – [Surah Alaq: First five (1 – 5) verses.] recited. Then immediately Hazrat Jibraeel (A) left from there. Thus, the Holy Quran comes to the earth with blessings and guidelines for human civilization.

There are a total of 114 Surahs in the entire Quran. Considering the period of revelation, mufassirs (interpreters of the Qur’an) have termed some of these surahs as Makki Surahs and the rest as ‘Madani Surahs’.


Makki Surah.


In general, the Makki surah is the surah that was revealed in Mecca. But the mufassirs(Islamic Scholars) have given vast ideas of Makki surah. They say that the surahs that were revealed from the beginning of the revelation of the Qur’an in 610 AD until Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) migration to Madinah in 622 AD will be called Makki Surahs.

Method and History of Al-Qur’an Compilation.



Compilation of the complete Qur’an in bibliography was not possible during the lifetime of Rasulullah (SAW). Because the revelation continued until he lived. Moreover, this compilation did not appear to be so necessary at that time. Because the Prophet (PBUH) himself was the Quran. Most of his Sahabis(Companions)(RA) preserved the Qur’an by memorization and writing. But after the demise of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), some undesirable and unexpected events took place, as a result of which the process of preserving this great book was interrupted. Likewise, when the compilation of the Qur’an became inevitable during the crisis, the work of compiling the Qur’an was completed twice in two different situations.

Although the entire Qur’an was not compiled in a library, it was compiled in writing during the time of the Prophet (PBUH). The compilation of this great book was completed by the responsibility of Rasulullah (S) to write it by employing about half a hundred of his Companions (RA). The order of surahs, the nature of recording surahs, and the instructions of which verse should be recorded after which verse has been determined by the Prophet (PBUH). Rasulullah (SAW) left the Qur’an that exists today with people on earth to his Companions. He arranged verses, ruku, and surah on the command of Allah. Some Surahs were revealed all at once and some Surahs were revealed in parts. He used to tell which verse should be placed after which Surah and accordingly it was included in Ruku and Surah. But it had no book form.

The martyrdom of a large number of Hafez of Qur’an (Sahabi) (R.A.) raised the fear of loss in the preservation system of the Qur’an Majid. First of all, Hazrat Umar (RA) realized this. He clearly observed that if there was a system of preserving the complete Qur’an by memorization only, at some point some part of it might be lost. In view of this realization, Hazrat Umar (RA) went to Khalifa Abu Bakr (RA) and offered to compile the Qur’an into the bibliography to keep the process of preserving the Qur’an clear from all aspects. Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) did not agree to this proposal at first, but later realized the importance of the matter and took the initiative to compile the Qur’an in a state-owned manner, and the responsibility of this honorable and important work was entrusted to Hazrat Zayd bin Sabit (RA), the chief scribe and writer of Prophet(PUBH) assigned to.

Hazrat Anas bin Malik (RA) said about this compilation of Al-Quran, “Hudayfa bin Yaman came to Uthman (RA) at a time when the people of Syria and Iraq were engaged in the struggle to conquer Armenia and Azerbaijan”. Hudhayfah (RA) was apprehensive about the different readings of the Qur’an. So he said to Uthman (RA) – O Commander of the Faithful, save this nation before they engage in disagreement about the Book. As the Jews and Nazarenes had previously indulged. That is why Uthman (RA) sent a person to Hafsa (RA) saying, “Send to us the copies of the Qur’an that you have preserved so that we can insert the Qur’an into a complete library.” Then I will return the manuscript to you.’

When Hafsa (RA) sent the manuscript to Uthman (RA), Uthman (RA) ordered Zayd bin Thabit, Abdullah bin Zubair, Saeed bin As and Abdur Rahman bin Harith bin Hisham (RA) to rewrite the Quran. The three said to the Quraish, in case you disagree with Zayd on any matter of the Qur’an, you should write it in the language of the Quraish because the Qur’an was revealed in their language. So they did so and when many copies were written Uthman (RA) sent the original back to Hafsa (RA). Uthman (RA) then sent copies of the Qur’an to each province, and at the same time ordered that all other written copies, either separately or together, should be burned (Sahih Bukhari).

Hazrat Uthman (RA) is known in history as Jamiul Qur’an or Qur’an Compiler, Collector, or Gatherer for this groundbreaking role in the compilation of the Qur’an. And this is how the complete compilation of Al-Qur’an was completed with the efforts of Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) and finally Hazrat Uthman (RA).


Role of Al-Qur’an in forming the ideal family.

 



The Qur’an has prescribed the rights of close relatives in various ways and has indicated the way to fulfill them. Allah says – “O you who believe! Save yourselves and your families from the Fire” (Surah At-Tahram: 6).
Role of Al-Qur’an in forming the ideal family
A Muslim family consists of parents, children, husband and wife, brothers and sisters. The main aim of this organization is to establish mutual trust, faith, love, sympathy, amity and harmony, and an all-around cooperative attitude among family members. The first guidance of the Qur’an regarding the duty towards family and relatives is – “And give to the nearest of kin his due” (Surah Bani-Isra’il: 26).

The Qur’an has prescribed the rights of close relatives in various ways and has indicated the way to fulfill them. Allah says – “O you who believe! Save yourselves and your families from the Fire” (Surah At-Tahram: 6).

The Qur’an prescribes mutual responsibilities and duties for each member of the family separately. For example: In the case of parents, it is said – “And the mother shall breastfeed her children for two full years if she wishes to complete the period of breastfeeding. And the duty of the father is to provide proper sustenance to the children’s mothers” (Surah Al-Baqarah: 233).

There is guidance for children – “And be kind to your parents. If one or both of them reach old age during your lifetime, do not say the word ‘Uh’ to them, do not rebuke them, and speak respectfully to them (Surah Bani-Isra’il; 23).

By pointing out the mutual rights of husband and wife, it is said – “And as husbands have rights over wives, so wives have rights over husbands” (Surah Al-Baqarah: 228) thus the Qur’an tries to solve family problems.

Al-Quran’s role in establishing ideals in international life.



The Qur’an has declared the people of all times and all countries of the world to be of the same origin, and strongly urges the cessation of conflicts between nations, nations, races, and regions. Allah Ta’ala says, “O mankind, I created you from one male and one female. Then I divided you into different nations and tribes, so that you may know each other. The one among you who is the most honorable to Allah is the one who is Muttaqi(who has fear on Allah)” (Surah Al-Hujurat: 13)

The Qur’an directs peace treaties or treaties to maintain punishment. Allah says – “And if they express interest in making a treaty, then be interested in that too and put your trust in Allah. Indeed, He hears all things, knows all things (Surah Anfal: 61).

The Role of Al-Quran in Punishment and Salvation in the Hereafter.



Earthly life is transitory. After the end of earthly life, a man enters the eternal life of the hereafter. And for that successful eternal life, the achievements of this time are necessary. To fail in this life is to fall into eternal ruin. That is why Al-Quran gives instructions to give due importance to the afterlife. Allah says, “Would you be satisfied with the life of this world instead of the Hereafter? But the means of life in this world are insignificant compared to the Hereafter (Surah At-Tawba: 38).

In fact, only efforts towards the Hereafter are acceptable to Allah. It is stated – “And those who desire the Hereafter and strive for it while they are believers, their efforts are accepted” (Surah Bani-Isra’il: 19).

So it appears that Al-Qur’an has given infallible and benevolent guidance in solving all problems in all aspects and departments of human life. Real peace and liberation will be possible only if these guidelines are practiced and followed in real life.

Al-Qur’an is the complete code for the solution to human life. Al-Qur’an teaches all human civilization from getting up from sleep to going to bed. Which Dua is to be said during sleep and which Dua is to be read from getting up from sleep, everything we can learn from the Holy Qur’an.

 


Al-Quran And Science:



The Qur’an is the final revelation and proof, not only for the Arabs of fourteen hundred years ago but also for the scientists of today. The first man and the first prophet from father Adam (A.S.) to Nuh (A.S.) Prophets have practiced cosmology, natural science, and sociology deeply.

Al Quran is not a history book, But it contains the world’s most reliable historical facts and theories. Al Quran is not a literary work, But it has all the ingredients of literature. Al-Qur’an is not a story novel, But it contains the world’s best novels.
The Qur’an is not a book of poetry, But it has all the elements of a dark immortal epic. Al Quran is a living miracle.

Many verses of the Qur’an urge mankind to study nature, which has been interpreted as encouraging scientific inquiry. The search for truth is one of the core messages of the Quran. Historical Islamic scholars Al-Biruni and Al-Battani drew inspiration from Quranic verses.

About 1400 years ago, people had no idea about the description of the earth, solar system, universe, and the beginning of creation in the Qur’an. The Qur’an was revealed at a time when there was no physical science, no chemistry, no space science, and no medical science.

Most of the discoveries of modern science and the Qur’an are consistent, and in some cases, many previously thought things have been discovered in the last twenty years.

The hundreds of verses full of scientific information found in the Qur’an would require a book to be compiled.

Science is the sophisticated systematic knowledge of using the environment and surroundings in a positive and beneficial manner in the course of human life. Al Quran is the best science. In this context, Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’an – “By the Quran, rich in wisdom!” (36:2).

 



Al Quran (The Motto of Success).


The Holy Qur’an is the best gift from Allah to mankind. Mankind is meaningless without the touch of the Quran. Quran is the basic path to success. The Qur’an is a guide to the right path. The sweet endless stream of the Quran is unstoppable for all. The Qur’an will continue to guide the way to success until the last day of the universe.

Our life is just a collection of moments. No such person can be found in the world; Who does not want success? This success is determined from each individual’s point of view.

The victory gives people the right path and the opportunity to do good deeds. Allah Ta’ala says: ‘Surely I have given you a clear victory, that Allah may forgive your past and future faults and complete His favor upon you and guide you to a straight path and Allah give you strong help.”(Surah-48 Fatah, Verse: 1-3).

In the Holy, Qur’an Allah has declared the criterion of success in human life – “Who created death and life that He may test you as to who among you is best in deeds.” And He is the Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving.” (Surah Mulk, verse-2)

In our desire to achieve this world, let us not be careless of achieving good deeds in the life of the Hereafter. True success in our lives will come when we are able to attain eternal Heaven

Virtues/Rewards of Quran recitation.

 


The virtues and dignity of reciting the Quran are very high. It has many rewards. The status of the reciter the Quran is also very high. Just as every verse of the Qur’an contains the message of guidance and salvation for the world’s humanity, recitation of the Qur’an contains the declaration of immense rewards and rewards for the believers.

The Qur’an Sharif, the Kaaba Sharif, and the blessed countenance of parents—these three things are rewarding just by looking at them.

Narrated by Abu Huraira (RA). He narrates from the Prophet (PBUH) that when the angel comes from the head to punish people when they are buried in the grave, the Qur’an prevents him. When the angel comes from the front, charity stops him. When the angel comes from the foot, he was prevented from walking in the mosque.

The Holy Prophet (PBUH), said, “The number of verses of the Qur’an will be equal to the stairs of Paradise.” And the reciter of the Qur’an will be told, ‘Go up the stairs as much as you have read the Qur’an. A person who reads the entire Quran will climb the last ladder of Paradise in the Hereafter. A person who recites a portion of the Qur’an will rise by an equal amount. And where the limit of reading the Qur’an ends, the limit of his reward will also end.

Ramadan is the month of revelation of the Quran. Allah Ta’ala says, “The month of Ramadan, the month in which the Qur’an was revealed, as a guide for people and a proof of guidance and a judge of truth and falsehood.” (Surah-2 Baqarah, verse: 285).
Surah Ikhlas is the proven practice of many people. This surah is memorized by everyone. If you read more, Allah will remove our poverty.

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, ‘That person among you is the best; He who learns the Qur’an himself and teaches it to others.’ (Bukhari)
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, “Recite the Qur’an.” Because the Qur’an will be an intercessor for its reciter on the Day of Resurrection.’ (Muslim)
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam said, ‘Whoever recites the Qur’an and memorizes it (and is careful about its rules) will be with the angels of high rank. And whoever recites the Qur’an despite suffering and keeps himself engaged with it, he will have a double reward.’ (Bukhari and Muslim)

Finally, to say, Al-Quran is the torch bearer of human civilization. Al-Quran is the distinguisher between the truth and the false, between the right and the wrong.
