Divine Guidance only through two channels:
These two things have always been going together, hand in hand.
Attempts to know the Will of Almighty Allah without relying on these two sources have proven to be misleading and lead to the down fall of mankind in many previous civilizations and even some in existence today.
The Hindus neglected their prophets and paid all attention to their books that proved only word puzzles which they ultimately lost.
Similarly the Christians, in total disregard to the Book of Allah sent with Jesus, totally disregarded the Book of Allah and then attached an extreme importance to "Christ" and so not only elevated him to the level of divinity, but also lost the very essence of monotheism ("Tawheed" in Arabic) which had been contained in the Bible.
As a matter of fact, the main scriptures revealed before the Qur'an, i.e.; the Old Testament ("Torah" in Arabic and Hebrew) and the Gospel ("Injeeel" in Arabic), came into book- form long after the days of the Prophets often only translations into other languages have survived, leaving not one actual original of any part of the Bible. This was because the followers of Moses, peace be upon him, and Jesus, peace be upon him, made no attempts to preserve these Revelations during the life of their Prophets. Actually they were written long after their deaths. So what we now have in the form of the Bible is actually translations of individuals who made accounts of the original revelations. These contain additions and deletions made by the followers of the prophets. However, they were written long after their deaths.
The opposite is true of the last and final revelation of Almighty Allah, who Himself guarantees in writing to preserve it until the Last Days. That is why the whole of the Qur'an was written during the lifetime of the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. It was recorded on pieces of palm leaves, parchment and even bones of animals.
More important though, there were at that time, tens of thousands of his companions ("sahabi" in Arabic) who memorized the complete Qur'an from the instruction of the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Even the prophet himself, peace be upon him, used to recite it while angel Gabriel once a year and in the last year of his life he recited it two times just before the month in which he died.
the leader who came after the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon
him, (Abu Bakr) entrusted the collection of the Qur'an to be written
in one volume by one of the Prophet's scribe, Zaid Ibn Thabit.
He kept it till his death. Then the next leader, Umar and after
him to his daughter, Hafsa who had been one of the wives of prophet
Muhammad, peace be upon him.
The Qur'an was so meticulously preserved because it is the Book of Guidance for all of humanity for all times. That is why it does not address just the Arabs, in whose language it was revealed. In fact Arabs today do not comprise more than 13% of the Today of Muslims in the world today.
The Qur'an speaks to "mankind"
general without regard to race, tribe, color, social position,
financial condition or genealogy.
The practical teachings of the Qur'an
..are established by the example of Muhammad, peace be upon him, and the good Muslims throughout the ages have endeavored to emulate his teachings both in thought and conduct.
The distinctive approach of the Qur'an is that its instructions are aimed at the general welfare of the mankind and are based on the possibilities within his reach.
The Qur'an is wisdom conclusive.
neither condemns nor tortures the flesh nor does it neglect
Yet it obviously is not written in human style (chronological order). Those who would claim that the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was the author of the Qur'an are claiming something that is humanly impossible.
could any person of the 7th century utter such scientific truths
as those found in the Qur'an?
can easily see how the modern world is coming closer to reality
regarding the truth of the Qur'an.
Regarding the Qur'an:
attracts, astounds, and in the end enforces our reverence... Its
style, in accordance with its contents and aim is stern, grand,
Koran (Qur'an) admittedly occupies an important position among
the great religious books of the world. Though it is the youngest
of the epoch making works belonging to this class of literature,
it yields to hardly any in the wonderful effect which it has produced
on large masses of men. It has created an all but new phase of
human thought and a fresh type of character. It first transformed
a number of heterogeneous desert tribes of the Arabian peninsula
into a nation of heroes, and then proceeded to create the vast
politico-religious organizations of Muslims world wide which are
one of the great forces with which Europe and the East have to
reckon with today."
work, then, which calls forth so powerful and seemingly incompatible
emotions even in the distant reader - distant as to time, and
still more so as mental development - a work which not only conquers
the repugnance which he may begin its perusal, but changes this
adverse feeling into astonishment and admiration, such a work
must be a wonderful production...
"It is impossible that Muhammad, peace be upon him, authored the Qur'an. How could a man, from being illiterate, become the most important author, in terms of literary merits, in the whole of Arabic literature?
could he then pronounce truths of a scientific nature that no
other human-being could possibly have developed at that time,
an all this without once making the slightest error in his pronouncement
on the subject?"
making the present attempt to improve on the performance of my
predecessors, and to produce something which might be accepted
as echoing however faintly the sublime rhetoric of the Arabic
Koran, I have been at pain to study the intricate and richly varied
rhythms which - apart from the message itself - constitute the
Koran's undeniable claim to rank amongst the greatest literary
masterpieces of mankind.. This very characteristic feature - 'that
inimitable symphony', as the believing Pickthall described his
Holy Book, 'the very sounds of which move men to tears and ecstasy'
has been almost totally ignored by previous translators; it is
therefore not surprising that what they have wrought sounds dull
and flat indeed in comparison with the splendidly decorated original.."
