Who Wrote The Quran?
“Do they not then consider the Qur’an carefully? Had it been from other than
Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradiction.” [4:82]
God created man for a noble purpose: to worship Him and lead a righteous life based
on His commands and guidance to mankind. Mankind learned this by God sending
Messengers with clear and practical instructions of the meaning of life and how to
worship God properly. God also revealed to these Prophets and Messengers
knowledge about what will happen after death and the rewards and punishments for
These Prophets and Messengers convey the same prevailing message which is
entrusted to them by God. They proclaimed:
“…Oh my people! Worship God! (i.e., without associating anything with him) You
have no other god but Him. [Qur’an: 7:65]
God sent a Prophet and/or Messenger to every nation throughout the history of
“And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a messenger
(proclaiming): Worship Allah (Alone) and avoid (or keep away from) all false
Some of them we have been informed of and others we have not. These Prophets and
Messengers include, but not limited to: Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob,
Joseph, Moses, Aaron, Lot, David, Solomon, Elias, Elisha, Hood, Thul-Kifi, Enoch,
Jonah, Job Shu’aib, Saalih, Ezra, Zachariyyah, John, Jesus , Muhammad and others
peace and blessings be upon them all.
Some of them were sent with Books while others were not.
Some of the books that we were informed of are the Scriptures of Abraham, the Torah
of Moses, the Zaboor of Dawood, and the Injeel which was revealed to Jesus. All of
these scriptures contained the same basic message from God to mankind.
Each Prophet brought specific instructions from God addressed to a particular people
for certain times in history and particular circumstances although the essential message
remained the same.
A few examples of this would be the fact that Moses’ contemporaries were excellent in
magic. So his major miracle was to defeat the best magicians of his days. Jesus’
contemporaries were recognized as skillful physicians. Therefore, his miracles were to
raise the dead and cure the incurable diseases. The Arabs, the contemporaries of the
Muhammad, were known for their eloquence and magnificent poetry. So Muhammad’s
(Peace and Blessings be upon him) major miracle was the Qur’an, the equivalent of
which the whole legion of the Arab poets and orators could not produce despite the
repeated challenge from the Qur’an itself.
However, the beauty and power of Muhammad’s (Peace and Blessings be upon him)
major miracle is that it removes the constraints of place and time. It is the permanent
miracle for all generations to see.
Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon him) is the final Messenger and that his
Prophethood is also not limited to time and place, and is for all peoples (after the advent
of his Prophethood) in all times until the Day of Judgement.
