What is Quran

The Qur'an comprehends the complete code for the Muslims to live a good, chaste, abundant and rewarding life in obedience to the commandments of Allah, in this life and to gain salvation in the next. It is the "chart of life" for every Muslim, and it is the "constitution" of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

The Quran (English pronunciation: /kɒˈrɑːn/ kor-AHN; Arabic: القرآن‎ al-qurʾān, literally meaning "a recitation"), also transliterated Qur'an, Koran, Qur’ān, Coran, Kuran, and al-Qur’ān, is the central religious text of Islam, which is the verbatim word of God (Arabic: الله‎, Allah) and the Final Testament, following the Old and New Testaments. It is regarded widely as the finest piece of literature in the Arabic language. The Quran is divided into 114 Surahs or Chapters of unequal length which are classified either as Makkan or Medinan depending upon their place and time of revelation.

Quran is verbally revealed through angel Jibril (Gabriel) from God to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gradually over a period of approximately twenty-three years beginning in 610 CE, when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was forty, and concluding in 632 CE, the year of his death. Shortly after Prophet Muhammad's death the Quran was compiled into a single book by order of the first Caliph Abu Bakr (R.A) and at the suggestion of his future successor 2nd caliph Hazrat Umar (R.A). When the third Caliph Hazrat Usman (R.A) began noticing slight differences in Arabic dialect he made several thousand copies of Quran, to standardize the text. This process of formalization is known as the "Uthmanic recension".

The Qur'an is the eternal contemporary of the Muslims. Each generation of Muslims has found new sources of strength, courage and inspiration in it. It is also, for them, a "compass" in the turbulent voyage of life, as it has explained itself in the following verses:
. . . Indeed, there has come to you light and a clear book from Allah; With it Allah guides him who fill follow His pleasure into the ways of safety and brings them out of utter darkness into light by his will and guides them to the right path. (V: 15-16)

It has created an all but new phase of human thought and a fresh type of character. It deserves the highest praise for its conceptions of Divine nature in reference to the attributes of Power, Knowledge, and Universal Providence and Unity--that its belief and trust is one God, creator of Heaven and Earth is deep and fervent, and that it embodies much of a noble and moral earnestness. It is Qur'an which transformed the simple shepherds and wandering Bedouins of Arabia into the founders of empires, the builders of cities, the collectors of libraries. If a system of religious teachings is evaluated by the changes which it introduces into the way of life, the customs and beliefs of its follower, then Qur'an as a code of life is second to none. It is not strange then, that more translations and more commentaries of the Holy Qur'an have been published than that of any other book claimed to be the Divine Revelation.

Uniqueness

Quran is different from all other books ever existed in ways that are impossible for any other book to be, such that similar texts cannot be written by humans. The Quran itself challenges any who disagree with its divine origin to produce a text of a miraculous nature. Till the Day of Judgment no one can change even a single dot in Quranic text, that’s why all the Quranic copies around the globe contains the same original text and is unchanged for the last 1400 years. Quran’s poetic form is unique and of a fashion that cannot be written by humans. It also contains accurate prophecy and that no other book does.

وَأَمَّا الْجِدَارُ فَكَانَ لِغُلَامَيْنِ يَتِيمَيْنِ فِي الْمَدِينَةِ وَكَانَ تَحْتَهُ كَنزٌ لَّهُمَا وَكَانَ أَبُوهُمَا صَالِحًا فَأَرَادَ رَبُّكَ أَن يَبْلُغَا أَشُدَّهُمَا وَيَسْتَخْرِجَا كَنزَهُمَا رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ ۚ وَمَا فَعَلْتُهُ عَنْ أَمْرِي ۚ ذَٰلِكَ تَأْوِيلُ مَا لَمْ تَسْطِع عَّلَيْهِ صَبْرًا

18:82    

And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure for them, and their father had been righteous. So your Lord intended that they reach maturity and extract their treasure, as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience."

اور وہ جو دیوار تھی سو وہ دو یتیم لڑکوں کی تھی (جو) شہر میں (رہتے تھے) اور اس کے نیچے ان کا خزانہ (مدفون) تھا اور ان کا باپ ایک نیک بخت آدمی تھا۔ تو تمہارے پروردگار نے چاہا کہ وہ اپنی جوانی کو پہنچ جائیں اور (پھر) اپنا خزانہ نکالیں۔ یہ تمہارے پروردگار کی مہربانی ہے۔ اور یہ کام میں نے اپنی طرف سے نہیں کئے۔ یہ ان باتوں کا راز ہے جن پر تم صبر نہ کرسکے

প্রাচীরের ব্যাপার-সেটি ছিল নগরের দুজন পিতৃহীন বালকের। এর নীচে ছিল তাদের গুপ্তধন এবং তাদের পিতা ছিল সৎকর্ম পরায়ন। সুতরাং আপনার পালনকর্তা দায়বশতঃ ইচ্ছা করলেন যে, তারা যৌবনে পদার্পন করুক এবং নিজেদের গুপ্তধন উদ্ধার করুক। আমি নিজ মতে এটা করিনি। আপনি যে বিষয়ে ধৈর্য্যধারণ করতে অক্ষম হয়েছিলেন, এই হল তার ব্যাখ্যা।

و اما آن دیوار، از آن دو نوجوان یتیم در آن شهر بود؛ و زیر آن، گنجی متعلق به آن دو وجود داشت؛ و پدرشان مرد صالحی بود؛ و پروردگار تو می‌خواست آنها به حد بلوغ برسند و گنجشان را استخراج کنند؛ این رحمتی از پروردگارت بود؛ و من آن (کارها) را خودسرانه انجام ندادم؛ این بود راز کارهایی که نتوانستی در برابر آنها شکیبایی به خرج دهی!»

"இனி (நான் நிமிர்த்து வைத்த) அந்த சுவர் அந்தப் பட்டினத்திலுள்ள அநாதைச் சிறுவர் இருவருக்குரியது அதன் அடியில் அவ்விருவருக்கும் சொந்தாமான புதையல் உள்ளது அவ்விருவருடைய தந்தை (ஸாலிஹான) நல்ல மனிதராக இருந்தார் எனவே, அவ்விருவரும் தக்க பிராயமடைந்த தம்மிருவரின் புதையலையும் வெளிப்படுத்தி (எடுத்துக்) கொள்ள வேண்டும் என உம்முடைய இறைவன் நாடினான். (இவையெல்லாம்) உம் இறைவனுடைய ரஹ்மத்தில் நின்றும் உள்ளவை என் விருப்பு, வெறுப்பின்படி எந்தக் காரியத்தையும் செய்யவில்லை எதைப் பற்றி நீர் பொறுமையாக இருக்க முடியவில்லையோ அதன் விளக்கம் இது தான்" என்று கூறினார்.
