INTRODUCTION OF HOLY QURAN.

Holy Quran is not a simple book but a guide for a happier life. It was revealed to Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH)1400 years ago. This book is full of events and tales of people lost and late shows us how to live a happy life and how to be wrong, so we’re not shameful before Allah. Allah says that he is more generous and kind but he has agreed to pursue the wrong path and the bad so that Hell awaits you.

The Qur’an describes itself (al-furqān), (umm al-kitāb), (Huda), (hikmah), (dhikr), (tanzīl; something sent down, indicating an object’s descent from the highest places to the lowest), while it also refers in the Arabic language to other scriptures, such as al-kitāb (“the Book”). The word ‘mus’haf’ is used frequently to refer to some Quranic manuscripts but also to describe previously disclosed books in the Qur’an.

Islamic tradition states that during one of his solitary retreats to the mountains, Muhammad got his first revelation in the Hira cellar. Afterward, for a period of 23 years, he got revelations. According to Hadith and Muslim history, he ordered many of his companions to recite the Qur’an, to read, and to instruct the laws that had been made public every day after Mohammed had immigrated to Medina and established an autonomous Muslim community. It is claimed that some of the Quraysh who were captured in Bader’s battle was released after teaching some Muslims the basic writing of their time. Therefore, a community of Muslims became literate gradually. When it was first said

Muhammad is not but a messenger. [Other] messengers have passed on before him. So if he was to die or be killed, would you turn back on your heels [to unbelief]? And he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all, but Allah will reward the grateful.

(Quran, 3:144)

Indeed, Allah sends blessings upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [Allah to send] blessings upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace.”

Quran (33:56)

ذَٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ

This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a guidance unto those who ward off (evil)

أَتَأْمُرُونَ النَّاسَ بِالْبِرِّ وَتَنسَوْنَ أَنفُسَكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ تَتْلُونَ الْكِتَابَ ۚ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ

Enjoin ye righteousness upon mankind while ye yourselves forget (to practice it)? And ye are readers of the Scripture! Have ye then no sense?

Al-Baqara – 2:44

And they who reject Our communications are deaf and dumb, in utter darkness; whom Allah pleases He causes to err and whom He pleases He puts on the right way. (Sura Anam 6:39)
