The Nobel Qur-an (The Holy Book of Islam)

Humanity has received diving guidance through two channels: the word of Allah and the prophets who were chosen by Him to communicate His will to humanity. These channels have always functioned together, and if one is ignored or neglected, the will of Allah cannot be known with any degree of accuracy. The Hindus neglected their prophets and focused all of their attention on their books, which proved to be only word puzzles that eventually were no longer understood by the people. Similarly, the Christians, disregarding the Bible, attached importance only to the person of Jesus Christ and eventually deified him. This resulted in the loss of the very essence of Tawhid (Monotheism) contained in the Bible.

As a matter of fact, the main scriptures revealed before the Noble Qur-an i.e. the Old Testament and the New Testament, acquired book form long after the days of the prophets. Moreover, the New Testament was not recorded in the language spoken by Jesus Christ, believed to be Aramaic, but in Greek. This was because the early Christians made no serious effort to preserve their revelation during the lifetime of their prophet. The Old and New Testaments, which together form the Christian Bible, now consist of translations of various individuals' accounts of the original revelations as well as the additions and deletions made by the faithful.

The Noble Qur-an, as the last revealed book of God, is extant in its original form. Allah Himself guaranteed it’s preservation. The entire Qur-an was recorded in written form during the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) on pieces of palm leaves, parchments, bones, and other suitable surfaces.

Moreover, there were tens of thousands of his followers who memorized the whole Qur-an, and the Prophet himself used to recited it to the angel Gabriel once a year and twice when he was about to die.

After the Prophet's (Peace Be Upon Him) death, Abu Bakr, the first caliph, oversaw the collection of the Qur-an into one volume by the prophet's scribe, Zayd Ibn Thabit. This volume remained with Abu Bakr who, when he was about to die, entrusted it to his successor, ‘Umar Ibn Khattab who, in turn, passed it on to Hafsah' the Prophet's wife. It was from this original copy that ‘Uthman, the third caliph, prepared several other copies and sent them to different Muslim territories. Click for AUDIO
The Qur-an was preserved so meticulously because it was to be the book of guidance for all humanity forever. Thus it does not address only the Arabs, even though it was revealed in their language. It speaks to man as a human being:
"O Man!  What has seduced you from your Lord?"
(Qur-an, 82:6) Click for AUDIO
The practical nature of the Qur-anic teachings is established by the examples of the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) and of the pious Muslims throughout history.

The Noble Qur-an's instructions are aimed at the general welfare of mankind and are based on possibilities within his reach. Its wisdom is conclusive in all of its various dimensions. It does not condemn or torture the flesh, nor does it neglect the soul. It does not humanize God nor does it deify man.  Everything is carefully placed where it belongs in the total scheme of creation.
