The Glorious Qur'an : Kitab Al-Aqaid Author Sadrul Afazil Shaykh Sayyid Nayimuddin Muradabadi

The Glorious Qur'an

The Qur'an is the Word of Allah, which He has revealed for the guidance of His slaves (humans and jinn). This Book contains the knowledge of everything and it is a book unlike any other. Nobody can compose a book similar to it. Even if all the people of the world join together (22) and cooperate, they will never be able to make a book like the Qur'an.

Allah ﷻ has revealed this Book to His most beloved Prophet, our Master, Muhammad Mustafa ﷺ (23), similar to other books revealed to other prophets عليهم السلام, such as: Tawrah (24) to Sayyiduna Musa عليهم السلام, Zabur (25) to Sayyiduna Dawud عليهم السلام, Injil (26) to Sayyiduna Yisa عليهم السلام.

All those books contain the truth. We bear faith in all those books (that they were revealed by Allah and were His Divine Speech). However, evil and mischievous people in previous communities altered those books and they are no longer in the original form in which they were revealed.

The Glorious Qur'an is protected by Allah Himself. Therefore, it is in the same state as it was revealed in; and will remain unchanged forever. Even if the whole world unites to alter it, they will not be able to remove or add a single letter to the Qur'an.
