Holy Quran

BOOK OF GUIDENCE Besides being a book of guidance (2:2), the Holy Quran is also a book of wisdom and knowledge (36:2). This is evident, among other things, from the most scientific, yet easily comprehensible, way in which the Quran guides us towards a definite goal. The entire scheme of guidance has been summed up just in one verse which says "Who has created and then proportioned: Who has measured and then guided" (87:2,3). The words "created" and "proportioned" in the verse imply the creation...

History of the Holy Quran

THE HOLY QURAN Islam appeared in the form of a book: the Quran. Muslims, consider the Quran (sometimes spelled "Koran") to be the Word of God as transmitted by the Angel Gabriel, in the Arabic language, through the Prophet Muhammad.

It is the final revelation, as Muhammad is regarded as the final prophet - 'the Seal of the Prophets." In a very real sense the Quran is the...

Essence of Holy Quran

The Qur’an is Complete, Detailed, Sufficient and Understandable www.detailedquran.com It has long been the position of most Muslims that in order for one to be a Muslim they needed to follow two sources of Islam.

It was stated that the Hadith and Sunnah explained the Qur‟an and supplied details where the Qur‟an had none. In short, there was at least an implicit understanding and teaching that the Qur‟an...
