Quranic Index

All the praises and thanks be to Allah, Who has sent down to His slave (Muhammad SAWS) the Book (the Quran), and has not placed therein any crookedness.

Facts:
The Quran was conveyed to mankind in Arabic to Muhammad (SAWS) about 1,400 years ago. The length of time over which the Qur'n was revealed was 23 years. There are 114 chapters in the Qur'n and over 6000 verses. It uses a very high standard of arabic that no man, to this day, has been able to replicate.

Scientific Proof

But as humans, we find it difficult to believe in the Creator until we are intellectually convinced, and the 'divine' message must be examined and proved. There needs to exist a rational proof for the validity of the text, not a blind emotional argument. And Allah (ST), in His Glory and Knowledge, has commanded us to remove our doubts by prooving the Qur'an false.

Let us consider some of the verses in the QQuran that deal with human reproduction. The Qur'n states:

"Was man not a small quantity of sperm which has been poured out? After that he was something which clings. Then Allah fashioned him in due proportion and harmoniously" [EMQ 75:37-38]

"We fashioned the thing which clings into a lump of chewed flesh and We fashioned the chewed flesh into bones and We clothed the bones with intact flesh" [EMQ 23:14]

"From a small quantity of liquid Allah fashioned him (i.e. man) in due proportion and ordained his fate" [EMQ 80:19]

There are other examples too such as the preservation of the body of the pharaoh. A verse of the Quran says:

"This day we save you in your body so that you may be a sign for those who come after you. But verily, many among mankind are heedless of our signs." [EMQ 10:92]

The mummified body of Merneptah, son of Ramesses II was discovered by Loret in 1898 and still can be seen today preserved in a museum in Egypt. Nowhere in any other scripture, does it mention the preservation of Pharaohns body.

Clearly, either man communicates with that Creator or that Creator communicates with us to explain our existence. Man, however is limited and unable to comprehend or perceive the unlimited and as such cannot communicate with the Creator. This obvious fact means that the communication had to come form the Creator.

The Challenge:

"And if you are in doubt as to what we have revealed from time to time to our servant then produce a chapter like thereunto; And call your witnesses or helpers beside Allah if your doubts are true" [EMQ 2:23]

The Qur'anic challenge is unique because the Creator pushes man to use his ability to undermine the authenticity of the Qur'an. Such a profound, yet simple challenge. Imagine, throughout the history of Islam, all her enemies simply needed to defeat this challenge to destroy the whole basis of Islam. Yet not one non-Muslim Arab or non-Arab has been able to do this even though the tools of the Arabic language are at their disposal.

"Do they not ponder about the Qur'an? If it had not come from God they would surely have found therein much contradictions" [EMQ Al-Nisaa:82]

Compilation:

Muhammad (SAWS) was the first to commit the Revelation to memory after Jibraeel (AS) conveyed it to him.

The Messenger Muhammad (SAWS) then declared the revelation and instructed the companions to memorise it. According to Imam Sayuti (Al-Itqan) 20 companions memorised the revelation including the Khulafa Rashideen (the rightly guided Khalifs).

The Revelation after the Messenger (SAWS) was available both orally and written down on various materials. Its internal order was known to the Muslims and strictly observed by them.At the battle of Yamama, in the time of Abu Bakr (RA), a number of Muslims who had memorised the Qur'n were killed. Abu Bakr (RA) instructed Zaid bin Thabit to collect the Quar’an that was written and also from those who had memorised it. The Qur'n was collected by mutawatir (multiple) transmission.

The compiled Quran was kept by Abu Bakr (ra) until he died, then by Umar bin Khattab (RA), and when he died he gave it to his daughter Hafsa (RA) for safekeeping. Various companions such as Abdullah ibn Masud, Ubay bin Ka'b and Ibn Abbas (RA) had their own Masahif (collected pages).

During the Khilafah of Uthman (RA) differences in reading the Qur'n led to disputes and after consultation with the companions, Uthman had a standard copy prepared by Zaid bin Thabit, Abdullah bin Zubair, Said bin Al Asn and Abdul-Rahman bin Harith bin Hisham. Copies were made and distributed, and it is this Qur'n which is found anywhere in the world today. Also, if one was to compare letter by letter a copy of the Qur'an published today to one of the first copies of the Qur'an available then one would find that not a single letter has been omitted or added.

Two of these original copies can still be found in the Topkapi museum in Istanbul and in Tashkent.

The Quran is the Word of Allah. It is complete. It provides answers for all of life's affairs and it has kept its authenticity over time; Nothing has been removed or added to it by any man since it was revealed to Muhammad (SAWS).

Statistical Study by Dr. Tariq Al-Suwaidan:

Words / Meaning Mentioned in the Quran: The Miracles of the Quran will never end. There will never be a time where mankind can fully take in the knowledge that is in this holy book. It is a miracle to all mankind, the word of God. There is no value that one can set to the words of the Creator. It is a treasure of which guides those that want to succeed in this life and the hereafter.
