The Quran

The Holy Quran is the last revealed word of Allah, and the Seal of Prophets, Muhammad (ﷺ) is the one to whom it was revealed. Allah has revealed the Quran to His beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) and there is no doubt about its divinity. Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) is the one on whom the Quran descended, as it were. The Quran is the light of knowledge and belief, and the Holy Prophet (ﷺ) is its practical example and an excellent exemplar. Quran is the prime source of every Muslim's faith and practice. Quran provides guidelines for a just society, proper human conduct and an equitable economic system. The claim is made by no one but Allah Almighty Himself. The Quran is guidance and leadership, and Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) is the guide and leader. The Quran is the call and message of Truth, and the Prophet (ﷺ) is the inviter and Messenger. Therefore, every sentence of the Quran and each of its verses somehow or the other find a reflection in His (ﷺ) life. Being that so, how can we enumerate the number of times He is mentioned in the Quran. The Quran is the religious text of Islam. The Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) dictated the text to His Companions after each Revelation. The word "Quran" is Arabic for "Recitation". There is no mistake in the Quran till today and will not be. The Quran is a record of the exact words revealed by Allah Almighty through the Hazrat Jibrail (A.S) to His beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ). It was memorized by Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) and then dictated to the Companions of Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ), and written down by scribes, who cross-checked it during his lifetime. Allah Himself has taken the responsibility of protecting the Quran, And the Qur'an is still safe today as it was revealed. Not one word of Quran’s 114 chapters and Surahs has been changed over the centuries, so that the Quran is in every detail the unique and miraculous text which was revealed to our Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) fourteen centuries ago. The life of our Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) was moulded according to the Quran and He gave a practical demonstration of whatever the Quran said.

The Five Pillars Of Islam

There is only one Allah and Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) is the last Prophet Of Allah. Muslims pray five times a day: at dawn, at noon, in the afternoon, at sunset, and in the evening. Fasting during the month of Ramadan. Paying an charity to benefit the poor and the needy. Pilgrimage to Mecca, the holy city in Saudi Arabia.

Who Is Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) ?

Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) born in Makkah, It was the 9th Rabi’ Ul-Awwal corresponding to 20th April 571. That morning was an auspicious morning for a town, unblessed with civic amenities, devoid of greenery and uncultivable. It was one of its honoured tribes, the Banu Hashim, favoured with a Blessing. Aaminah bint Wahib the wife of ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abdul Muttalib gave birth to the light of Messengers, Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ).

By Allah! What a propitious morning that was which proclaimed to the wide world the rising of guidance! What a favourable moment when the good news of the Prophet’s arrival was heard from every particle on earth and in the universe. It was as if every little thing was singing that the time of difficulty was gone, and the darkness of polytheism and infidelity was taken over by this light of guidance. Idolatry was banished and worship of One Allah was the objective of life.

There is a Marfoo Hadith [Marfoo Hadith is one which is traced direct to the Prophet] in Bukhari in which the Prophet (ﷺ) says, “I am Muhammad, I am Ahmad, I am Mahee -- one who removes disbelief and polytheism -- I am Hashir because on the day of Resurrection, I will be the first to present myself before Allah, and I am ‘Aaqib”.

The name of the father of the Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) was ‘Abdullah and His mother Aaminah. His father died before He was born while His mother was still carrying Him in her womb. The Prophet (ﷺ) was yet only six years old when His mother too died.

We have seen the individual and collective aspects of the pure life of the Khatim Al-Anbiya Muhammad (ﷺ). On the one hand, He preferred solitude to immerse himself in the knowledge of Allah, to search the straight path and to concentrate on reforming fellow-men. On the other hand, He spoke the truth with individuals and tribes, truthfulness was His habit and His dealings with other people were very fair. His excellent character endeared Him to all people who were unanimous in calling Him As-Sadiq and Al-Ameen (the truthful, the trustworthy).

The first verses that were revealed to the beloved Prophet (ﷺ) were from Surah Al-Alaq.

Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) was sent to all mankind. The Holy Prophet (ﷺ) enlightened his people through the Quran on the concept of unity of Allah. He explained the Oneness of the deity and invited all mankind to believe in it.
