Just like all divine religions, the Muslims too have their own revealed book, Muslims believe this book to be revealed from God through the angel Gabriel to prophet Muhammad peace be upon of him. This all took place about 1500 years ago in the land of Arabia, Want to know What is the Quran? Or what it contains?
What is the Quran?
The noble Quran was revealed through a period 23 years to prophet Muhammad, whenever a portion of it would be revealed he had memorized it and narrated to his companions who then wrote it down.
The noble Quran is divided into 30 parts and contains 114 chapters called “Surah” which Muslims often memorize , some Muslims even memorize the whole Quran. Muslims are firm in their belief that all parts of the Quran are the same today as they were originally revealed, this is because God says in the holy Quran chapter 15 verse 10.
“We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption).”
What is the Quran? The Nobel Quran is remarkable as many of the prophecies and scientific phenomena that were revealed over 1500 years ago and were unknown to the people of the time have been and are been fulfilled today and here is some examples of such scientific facts.
At a time when people knew nothing of the origin of the universe God says in the Noble Quran in chapter 21 verse 31
“Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder? We made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?”
In other words God is referring to the Big Bang, a theory that was only established a few decades back.
Another example is the birth of man, the Noble Quran describes man being created in 7 different stages, they are first from an extract of clay, second it is placed as a drop of sperm in a safe depository, third the sperm is formed into a clot, fourth the clot is fashioned in a shapeless lump, fifth the bones are fashioned from this shape, sixth the bones are then clothed with flush, and seventh they are developed into another creation. Basically this is what happens in the womb of the mother which has been scientifically proven just recently.
The Noble Quran is no ordinary book it guides in all matters of life whether they be about justice, marriage, politics, economics, or otherwise.
But just keep in mind Muslims also believe in Torah and the Bible but believe the Noble Quran to be the final and complete word of God, and not only is it a guidance for Muslims but rather for all of mankind. So if you ever get a chance to come across the Noble Quran take a minute and open it up, you’d be amazed to see what can learn from it.
