Who Wrote The Quran? All That You Need To Know

We as Muslims have faith that the Holy Quran was the oral revelation from Allah ( God ) to the final prophet, Muhammad, through Gabriel the archangel incrementally over a period of some 23 years, beginning, when Muhammad the prophet was 40 years old; and ending in the year 632 A.D, the year of his death.

Do Muslims believe in their book only?

To begin with Allah’s divine books, it can be said that all books are focused on The concept of Tawheed, which literally means “to make something one”. Muslims believe in all the books. Since the beginning of time, Allah سبحانه وتعالى has sent revelations as a means of guiding the human being to the straight path. there are four main books that were sent. they are:

  • The Tawrah (Torah) was given to Musa (Moses) عليه السلام.
  • The Zabur was given to Dawud ( David) عليه السلام.
  • The Injil (Bible) was given to Isa (Jesus) عليه السلام.
  • The Quran was given to Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم.

Why Did Allah Send Messengers and books to Mankind?

Allah عزوجل sent prophets and messengers to all nations. since the beginning of creation, Allah has communicated His guidance through these chosen people. they were human beings who walked and lived among their people. they were noble and pious role models. they were neither divine, nor angels nor Jinn. they taught nations about faith in one God which is “Tawheed”, “Monotheism”. from the first prophet, Adam عليه السلام, to the last prophet, Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم, Allah’s message eventually reached all corners of the world. Allah سبحانه وتعالى says in the Quran: “And for every nation is a messenger”

To begin with the Quran as a divine revelation, it is more than just a book of laws. The Quran book is known as the “Al-Furqan” or “The Criterion”. this is because it is a light of discernment that allows us to distinguish between the right and the wrong.

The book of Quran was revealed from Allah عزوجل to Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم in two cities, Mecca and Madina. the main theme in the Quran is Tawheed. it is to believe that God is one, the only owner who owns everything. Allah without any partner deserves to be worshipped, Allah is unique in His names and attributes.

What is in the Quran?

The words of the Quran were put into writing in a book known as Mus’haf, as a means of preserving and spreading the Holy message of God. Since the beginning of revelation, the prophet’s صلى الله عليه وسلم followers were both memorizing and writing down Ayat of the Quran on parchment, stone, animal bones, pieces of leather, and cloth. within twenty years of the prophet’s death a complete written version of the Quran was compiled together, copied and sent all over the world.
In addition, the Quran is a book of many levels and great depths. it is a reflection of Allah’s speech manifested on the human being’s tongue.

  • The Quran book includes Allah’s guidance to do the right things for which He will reward us with Jannah.
  • worshipping Allah in every thought, speech, and action. “And We sent not before you any messenger except We revealed to him that, “There is no deity except Me, so worship Me.” Surah Al-Anbiya 25. To always worship Allah is to make a sincere intention. when we work or study, eat or sleep always make the intention that we are doing this in order to get rewards from Allahسبحانه وتعالى.
  • Allah سبحانه وتعالى tells us many stories from the past to teach us valuable lessons and to understand the current circumstances. “There was certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding.” Surah Yusuf verse: 111
  • parables are very common in Quran which is short stories with familiar events to explain certain truths or to drive home important points. In Surah, Ibrahim Allah says:

“Have you not considered how Allah presents an example, [making] a good word like a good tree, whose root is firmly fixed and its branches [high] in the sky. It produces its fruit all the time, by permission of its Lord. And Allah presents examples for the people that perhaps they will be reminded.”

Surah Ibrahim

    The Quran is the revelation of Allah

    Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم used to go to cave “Ghar Hiraa” which was in the top of a mountain called “Jabal-un-noor, or the mountain of light. He used to go there for several nights so he would think about the world and the one who created it so beautiful.

    When Prophet Muhammed was 40 years old, Angel Jibreel عليه السلام visited him during the Month of Ramadan especially the night of Al-Qadr.

    “Verily! We have sent it (This Quran) down in the Night of Al-Qadr”

    Surah Al-Qadr 1

    Allah created Angels out of light. they are kind and have great faith. they obey Allah سبحانه وتعالى all the time. Angel Jibreel was the leader of all angels he taught Muhammad the Holy Quran. The Holy Quran came down from the heaven to prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم through angel Jibreel عليه السلام in its exact wording over a period of 23 years by means of Wahy.
