Al-Quran and as-Sunnah as the Main Sources of Islam

Topics: Qur'an, Muhammad, Islam Pages: 5 (1701 words) Published: February 23, 2013

The Qur'an is the holy book that contains the revelation (word) of Allah, God Almighty, the original as delivered by the angel Gabriel to Prophet Muhammad as His Messenger, little by little over 22 years 2 months 22 days, in Arabic, first in Mecca and Medina to be guidelines or instructions for humanity in life and achieve prosperity in the life of this world and happiness in the hereafter. The Qur’an starts with Al-Fatihah and ends with Al-Nas.

In my opinion, the Qu’ran is clearly stated that it is from the God Almighty – Allah SWT. From the definition stated above, we could clearly conclude that the Qu’ran is real. The reason why is because the Qur’an itself is send by God – Allah SWT, through an angel – Gabriel, to His messenger, Prophet Muhammad SAW. Reading it is considered as a deed – as it is in the language of Heaven – Arabic and it is fully delivered to us – human races by mutawatir to Prophet Muhammad SAW. THE DEFINITION

Word of the Qur'an comes from the verb Qara-a means (he has) to read. Qara – a verb, is transformed into a verb iqra means read, and turned back into a noun Qur'an, literally, reading or something must be read or studied.

The meaning of the Qur’an is originally said as to read as our Prophet Muhammad SAW need to read it at first. Then it change into read, as our Prophet Muhammad SAW had read it. Then it change back into Qur’an that literally means something must be read or studied as what we are doing right now. VERSE FROM THE QUR’AN

Al-Qiyama Verse 17-18
17. Indeed, upon Us is its collection [in your heart] and [to make possible] its recitation. 18. So when we recited it [through Gabriel], then follow its recitation. ________________________________________

This clearly shows the evidence that the Qur’an is 100% from Allah SWT. The Qur’an is from Allah, sent through Gabriel, to Prophet Muhammad SAW for our guidance – human races all over the globe. FACT IN THE QUR’AN

In the Qur’an there are any principles of science, including cosmology and knowledge of nature. The Qur'an is the essence of all knowledge. However, the knowledge contained in the Qur'an is the seeds or principles alone.

As we are learning, have we ever wondered where all of this knowledge came from the first place? Sometimes, right?? Do you know that 100% of our knowledge came from Allah SWT and in the Qur’an had already stated about the knowledge? It is not 100% clear though, because Allah SWT wants us to think about His knowledge. Allah had stated that even if we use up all the trees on earth as pens and oceans as the ink, we still can’t cover or write down all of His knowledge. If any research conducted by professors or researchers all over the world, they will refer to the one and only – the Qur’an. Then they do know that all of their studies are already stated in the Qur’an itself. That is why many professors and researchers had choose Islam as the way of their life because they had discover that the Qur’an is real and the main source of Islam. THE CONTENT OF THE QUR’AN

Al-Qur’an consists of 114 Chapters (surahs) and about 6235 verses (ayats). •Al-Qur’an is the miracle of Prophet Muhammad SAW.
It is the proof of the prophet hood of Muhammad SAW.
It is a miracle. [refer to the next page]

The number of chapters and verses in the Qur’an are stated at every page of the Qur’an. If you don’t believe it just count by yourself every single page in the Qur’an. The Qur’an also contains the miracle and the proof of the prophet hood of Prophet Muhammad SAW. As we all know, the Qur’an consists of history and future. So, the Qur’an also must explain about Prophet Muhammad SAW. For example, in surah Al-A’raaf verse 157-158, surah...
