HOLY QURAN IS A SACRED BOOK

holy-quran-sacred-bookThe Holy Quran is the sacred book which Muslims recite and turn to for the guidance in all aspects of their life. It is the final testament in a series of divine revelations from ALLAH Almighty. It comprises the unaltered and direct words of ALLAH Almighty, revealed through the Angel Harat Jibraeel (AS), to the final Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) 1400 years ago.

Islam is a continuation of the teachings of preceding Prophets, such as Hazrat Noah (AS), Hazrat Ibraheem (AS), Hazrat Moosa (AS) and Hazrat Esa (AS) etc, some of whom were also given divine books. Muslims believe that the main message brought by all Prophets was the similar; to believe in One ALLAH Almighty and not to associate partners with Him, to stay away from all kind of sins and to lead a life devoted to earning pleasure of ALLAH Almighty.

All Prophets taught about life after death and gave cheerful tidings of paradise for those who obey ALLAH Almighty, but warned of punishment in dozakh for those who select to disobey Him. The Holy Quran’s message is everlasting and universal, transcending our differences in race, colour, traditions and nationality. It provides guidance on each and every aspect of human life from economics and the ethics of trade to wedding, divorce, gender issues, inheritance and parenting.

The Holy Quran is unique because it is the only revealed sacred book that exists in the present day in the precise form and content in which it was initially revealed. In addition, it was recorded during the time the religion was being established.

The distinctive approach of the Holy Quran is that its religious message includes practical injunctions aimed at the common welfare of human beings, community and the environment in which we live. The Quran describes signs of the existence of ALLAH Almighty in the universe and how all the things are carefully placed in the total scheme of creation. The Holy Quran has been preserved for over 1400 years through parallel writings and memorization.

Verse 15:9 of Holy Quran,

 Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) could not read or write, so as soon as a portion of the Holy Quran was revealed, He called upon His scribes to record the revealed sacred text. The Prophet (peace be upon him) specified the part of the Holy Quran the revelation belonged to and had the companions read back what was written to make sure that it corresponded accurately with what was revealed.

Verse 2:185 of Holy Quran,

The month of Ramadan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey – then an equal number of other days. ALLAH intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify ALLAH for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.
