Assalamu alaikum brothers and sisters in Islam.
My dad had kindly bought us a book called “Islamic studies”. Alhamdulillah we have been reading it a lot and now we know much more about Islam.
We are learning about the Quran. Here are some things I want to write in this post:
- The meaning of the Quran.
- Who the Quran was revealed to.
- The most best known sacred books that came before the Quran and which prophets they were revealed to.
Number 1. the meaning of the Quran. The Quran is the uncreated word of Allah.
The word “Quran” is frequently mentioned in the book itself. ( See 2:185, 10:37, 10:61 and 17:106 )
Number 2: Who the Quran was revealed to. The Quran was revealed to the prophet Muhammad (SAW) in the month of Ramadan on the night of power or decree “Laylatul-Qadr”. It was revealed in the Arabic language: “Surely, we have made it in the Arabic language so that you may be able to understand it.” (43:3)
Number 3: The most best known sacred books that came before the Quran and which prophets they were revealed to.
Some of the prophets were given sacred books from Allah. Here are some of the best known books: Torah, ( at-Tawraat) which was given to the prophet Musa;
The psalms, (Az-Zaboor) which was given to the prophet Dawood;
and the Gospel (Al-Injeel) which was given to the prophet Isa. And the last book was the Quran which was given to the prophet Muhammad (SAW).
Well that’s all for today! This post will InshaAllah come in really handy if you are trying to do some research on the quran!
