Indeed it was revealed from Allah our creator, from whom only great things are sent down to His creation. The Quran-a magnificent book is undoubtedly perfect in all aspects. Allah Azawajala says “And we have given you, [O Muhammad], seven of the often repeated [verses] and the great Quran “[Al-Hijr 15-87].
The Quran is a complete truth, void of any form of falsity and made clear for all those who crave for guidance… It’s a straight forward book that is easy to understand. Allah says, “This is the book about which there is no doubt, guidance for those conscious of Allah.”[Al-Baqrah 2:2].
The Quran is a book full of knowledge and wisdom. Those who recite it will attest to this. It has touched on everything that one may think of. Allah says “we have not neglected in the register a thing”. [Al-An ‘am 6:38].
It is the means for salvation from trials. This is indeed an important feature of the Quran, as the Dunya (world) is a temporary place of living full of trials and hurdles. Often man is in darkness, blind sighted by the trials and love for the transitory life that confounds him. Allah says, “Aliff, Laam, Ra. [this is] a book which we have revealed to you, [o Muhammad], that you might bring mankind out of darkness into the light by permission of their lord- to the path of the exalted in might, the praiseworthy”. [Ibrahim 14:1].
It is a book full of miracles that no single human being can fully grasp. One of the miracles of the Quran is that it throws a challenge that if the entire creation of humans and jinn pulled forces together, they can’t come up with something close to the shortest of all chapters of the Quran. No one person or group have been able to refute this challenge in the last 1400 years! Allah says ,”say, ‘if mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were each other’s assistants’”.[Al-Isra 17:88].
It is a book of cure and mercy for the heart, soul and body of man (specifically the believers), from the Most Gracious and Most Merciful. Allah says, “And we send down of the Quran that which is healing and mercy for the believers”. [Al-Isra 17:82].
It serves as a reminder to all those who fear Allah and take due notice from His admonitions. Allah says, “But remind by the Quran whoever fears my threat”. [Qaf 50:45].
It is a criterion to emphasize and differentiate between the truth and falsehood and good and evil. Allah says, “Blessed is He who sent down the criterion upon his servant that he may be to the worlds a Warner. [Al-Furqan 25:1].
It is the book of answers-answers that man seeks in this bundle of complications called life. Things might not be complicated after all if we embrace the Quran with all the sincerity due to it. This will just do us good!
