Facts about the Holy Quran

As Muslims, we have to believe in the truth contained in the Quran, not only to believe but also to practice and make as guidance to the right path. The Quran is Kalam Allah (words of Almighty God) and is a miracle that is revealed to Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.).

 

The Quran is a guide to human life and is believed to be true until the last day, because Allah has preserved the authenticity of its contents till the Day of Judgment. In the beginning, the Quran is not a book that we have today, but the Quran was still written on stone, tree branches, even leaves, to keep it from being lost then the Quran was recited during the Caliphate Utsman bin Affan (R.A.).

 

This time, we will discuss some of the facts/information about Quran that every Muslim must know.

Quran is the best source of inspiration and motivation for all Muslims. We, as a Muslim to be successful in both worlds, should learn Quran. Following Hadith of our beloved Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.) shows the importance about learning Quran:

 

Uthman bin Affan (R.A.) reported:

The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) said, "The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur'an and teaches it." (Sahih al-Bukhari : 5027)

 

Therefore in the light of this Hadith, the best people in the world are not those who have high degrees and positions, nor are those who possess excessive wealth. But the best person on the side of Allah is the person who wants to learn the Quran and teach it to others.

May Allah bless all Muslims with strong Faith, Purity of heart, good manners, good deeds and understanding the true meaning of all teaching of Quran and Hadiths.
