Holy Quran

And We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember, then is there any that will remember (or receive admonition)?  ( Chapter No 54, Verse No 22 – Holy Quran )

Holy Quran is the most widely read book in the world. The Quran was repeatedly revealed to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)  through Angel Jibril(AS) who is the king of all Angels.

Holy Quran was revealed at once to Bait ul Aizzah in the month of Ramazan. After then it was revealed on earth towards Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) in different time periods according to the situation and this revelation process lasted for approximately twenty-three  years.

Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) received his first revelation in the cave of Hira where he spent lot of time worshipping Allah. Holy Quran is the miracle of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH).

The revelation of  Quran started when Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) was 40 years old and it ends when his age was approximately 63 years.

The Holy Quran was collected by Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) companions and is written and memorized to pass it to the next generations. It was revealed part by part, ayet by ayet and occasionally as whole chapters. It is the most memorable book and is fully memorized by millions of people all over the world.

The companions of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) served in transferring the Islamic holy book to future generations. The Quran was compiled into a book in the time of the first caliph, Abu Bakr(RA).

During the 23 years of Muhammad’s(PBUH) time as a prophet, the verses of the Quran were memorized as they were revealed, and about 42 scribes wrote the verses on different materials such as paper, cloth, bone fragments and leather.

The delegation of 12 people, including famous figures such as Uthman ibn Affan(RA), Ali ibn Abi Talib(RA), Talha ibn Ubaydullah(RA), Abdullah ibn Masood(RA), Ubayy ibn Kab(RA), Khalid ibn al-Walid(RA), and Hudhaifah(RA) , came together in Umar’s(RA) house and collected all the materials on which verses from the Quran were written.

Holy Quran is the finest piece of literature available in the world in Arabic language. It is the only book in the world that is in its original form after its revelation 1400 years ago.

Holy Quran consists of 114 chapters.  Out of 114 chapters, 86 chapters were revealed when Prophet(PBUH) was in Meeca and 28 chapters were revealed when Prophet(PBUH) was in Madina.  Each Chapter covers various aspects like rules and restrictions, rewards and the punishment.
