PROPHET Muhammed - peace be upon him - was the last and final messenger of God sent to the world and his message is valid until eteity.
Since his message is everlasting and the miracle given to him by God is also everlasting and examineable by us all for all times.
Al Quran is the miracle of miracles for all times. It has proved to be a miracle 1 400 years ago and will continue to do so today and forever.
The Quran was hand-written by the scribe of the prophet (p.b.u.h) in the prophet’s presence as it was revealed to him orally by the angel Gabriel, bit-by-bit over a span of 23 years. After the prophets demise, his close companions had four copies of the Quran hand-written from the original Arabic one (from the one that the Prophet had verified personally) and sent to the different coers of the Islamic Empire.
Two of these Qurans are intact and are in existence today. One is in the Topkapi Palace Museum in Istanbul, Turkey and the other is in Tashkent Uzbekistan.
The United Nations has verified the authenticity of the Quran in Tashkent with a certificate that is displayed next to the glass cabinet in which the Quran is kept.
Many historians have testified to the authenticity of the Quran as being authentic as it was revealed to the Prophet (p.b.u.h). Among them, William Muir, a staunch critic of Islam who testified to the originality of the Quran in the 18th century by comparing the original to the copies. They are exactly the same today in every letter.
Allah says in Chapter 15 verse 9 of the noble Quran: “We have, without doubt, sent down the message and we will assuredly guard it (from corruption). Chapter 4 verse 82: “Do they not consider the Quran with care? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy.”
The Quran challenges: “This is a revelation from Allah.” If it is not, then what is it? The answer is self-evident, but those whose hearts averse to the truth will never admit that it is from the All Knowing.
The Quran continuously asks humankind to reason and to think. Can any other book claim this? The Quran mentions hundreds of scientific facts that were unknown 1400 years ago, yet it is not a book of science, but a book of “signs”.
These signs invite humankind to realise the purpose of his existence and to live in harmony. It also contains the same message of the Oneness of God as preached by all prophets (p.b.u.t).
