The Quran: Unique among Scriptures

The Quran is the most-read book in the world. Revealed by Allaah Almighty to Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, (may Allaah exalt his mention) in the 7th century CE, and revered by Muslims as being Allaah’s Final Scripture and Testament, its words have been lovingly recited, memorized and implemented by Muslims of every nationality ever since. The faithful are inspired, consoled and often moved to tears by its eloquence and poetic imagery, especially when recited aloud. And yet, the Quran is unique in being the only Scripture that is free of scientific inaccuracies, whose historical authenticity can be verified, and whose text has been so carefully preserved that just one authorized version (in Arabic) exists.

The Quran is also the only holy book that can be memorized in its entirety by people of all ages and intellectual abilities – including non-Arabic speakers – which Muslims consider to be one of its miracles. We invite you to take a few minutes to learn something about a book that is the foundation of the worldview and culture of almost a quarter of the people on this planet. Continue reading

The miracle as a sign of their prophetic and as reinforcing it so that people at the time of their prophetic believe that he really was a prophet. Besides, miracles can also be a hallmark of every Prophet. Because of the Prophet that one and the other, who received the different miracle.

Prophet Nooh got the miracle ark that saved from the flood that destroyed everything.

Prophet Ibrahim was immune to the raging fire burned. His son, Ismail replaced by an angel with a sheep to be slaughtered.

Prophet Musa was given a great stick for splitting the oceans, which in the face of Pharaoh’s magicians instantly transformed into a big snake.

Prophet Isa blessed with the ability to speak when newly born into the world, revived the dead and cured the disease.

We refer to it all as a miracle. But, where do all the miracles go? We still believe and believe in the truth. However, we are no longer able to see, let alone touch it. We can only read a story or hear the story and chaplain speak about it.

And what about our Prophet, Muhammad?

During his life, he also suffered extraordinary events. The water that flows in between his fingers. Moon split in two. Rocks were split off light that informs the fall of the Roman and Persian in the hands of the Muslims. Continue reading
