Is the Holy Quran the word of God?

The Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him) over a period of 22 years. The verses were written down and memorized by hundreds of people as soon as they were revealed.

God promised to protect the Holy Quran Himself:

quran

Verily, We Ourself have sent down this Exhortation, and most surely We will be its Guardian. (15:10)

Not an iota of the Holy Quran has changed in 1400 years.

Islam is to be the religion of mankind till the end of time, and the Holy Quran is to be the spiritual guidance for mankind till the end of time.

The Holy Quran is the word of God.

Belief in all the Prophets of God

messengers

This Messenger of Ours believes in that which has been revealed to him from his Lord, and so do the believers: all of them believe in Allah, and in His angels, and in His Books, and in His Messengers, saying, ‘We make no distinction between any of His Messengers.’ (2:286)

Muslims believe in all the Prophets of God, including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Prophet Muhammad (peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him).

travel

Islam is the true religion

islam

Surely, the true religion with Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Book did not disagree but after knowledge had come to them, out of mutual envy. And whoso denies the Signs of Allah, then surely, Allah is Quick at reckoning. (3:20)

All religions inculcate belief in the Oneness of God and submission to His Will, yet it is only in Islam (which means complete submission) that the idea of submission to God’s Will has found its consummation; for complete submission requires complete manifestation of God’s attributes, and it is in Islam alone that such manifestation has taken place. So of all religious systems, Islam alone deserves to be called God’s own religion in the real sense of the term.

All true religions were indeed more or less Islam in their original form, and their adherents Muslims in the literal sense of the term, but not till the time when religion became complete in all its different aspects was it given the name of Al-Islam, which was reserved for the final Dispensation perfected in the Holy Quran.

islam

This day I have perfected your religion for you and completed My favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as religion. (5:4)

Everything in the universe will be destroyed

destroyed

All that is on it will pass away. And there will remain only the Person of thy Lord, Master of Glory and Honor. (55:27-28)

The whole universe is subject to decay and death, and eventually is destined to perish. God alone will abide because He is Self-Subsisting, All-Sustaining, Independent and Besought of all.

perish

And call not on any other God beside Allah. There is no God but He. Everything will perish but He. His is the judgment, and to Him will you all be brought back. (28:89)

What is God

God

Allah – there is no God but Him, the Living, the Self-Subsisting and All-Sustaining.

Slumber seizes Him not, nor sleep.

To Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth.

Who is he that will intercede with Him except by His permission?

He knows what is before them and what is behind them; and they encompass nothing of His knowledge except what He pleases.

His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth; and the care of them burdens Him not; and He is the High, the Great. (2:256)
