WELCOME TO THE QURAN
There have been many incredible works of literature, such as Shakespeare’s plays and fantasy epics like Lord of the Rings. What ties these works together is that they are the product of great human minds. As amazing as these works are, can you imagine how much more amazing a book would be if God Himself authored it, surely it would be the greatest book ever produced.
Moreover, imagine that God answers all the important questions that human beings have about life, such as why we are here and what happens to us after we die. Finally, imagine if the contents of this book is the spoken word of God and the topic is you! Wouldn't you want to read such a book? The Quran is exactly that book.
'God - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-living, the Sustainer of existence. He has sent down upon you, [O Muhammad], the Book in Truth ... as guidance for the people ... '
[Quran 3: 2-4]
This is the Book about which
there is no doubt!
The Quran is the word of the Ever-living God; it has been sent down to guide humanity for all times to come. No book can be like it. It is the encounter of life with the Life-giver.
LISTEN TO THE QURAN
The Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad [Peace Be Upon Him] through Angel Gabriel. Today Millions of Muslims around the world recite the verses of The Quran as it was revealed; in Arabic. Even though we read the translation to understand the meaning of the Arabic verses, recitation can only be done in the original language - simply because it is the spoken word of God.
The Quran instructs Muslims to "contemplate the wonders of creation" [Quran 3:191]. Islam teaches that the entire universe was created by Allah, therefore it follows and obeys His laws. Muslims are encouraged to seek knowledge, explore the universe, and find the "Signs of Allah" in His creation.
The Quran, although revealed in the 7th century C.E (over 1400 hundred years ago) contains many scientifically-accurate statements. But how would this knowledge be known back then?
This collection of videos will explain some of the scientific miracles found in the Holy Quran.
PROPHETS IN THE QURAN
Prophets are human beings, who were chosen by Almighty God. They all preached and taught the same, universal message: To testify and believe in one God, the Creator and Lord of the Universe. Each prophet preached this message and aimed to guide their nation/people to reform their morals and purify their souls.
It is important to remember that Prophets were sent to preach the message of God. They are not equal in status to God, and must not be over exalted or given prominence over the belief in God.
Islam teaches that God Almighty has sent down 124,000 Prophets and Messengers over the course of time. 25 of them have been named in the Quran. It is fundamental in Islam to recognise and believe in these Prophets and Messengers.
