The Eternal Miracle of the Prophet (S.A.W.) of Islam
The Holy Qur'an is the eternal miracle of the
Prophet (S.A.W.) of Islam. By listening to its verses and
reflecting on them, knowledgeable people realize that
these verses are not the words of Muhammad (S.A.W.)
but are actually the words of Allah. By listening and
reflecting on the Qur'an's verses, such people realize
that the Qur'an is indeed the Word of Allah, and that
the Prophet (S.A.W.) of Islam had a special relationship
with Him which enabled the Prophet (S.A.W.) to bring to
mankind such a beautiful and meaningful Book.
Allah tells us in the Qur'an:
"If you have any doubt about this Qur'an which I
have sent down upon My servant, and you think this
Qur'an to be the word of a normal human being and
not that of Allah, then bring a surah (chapter) like the
surahs of the Our'an (2:23)."
In the same way, Allah tells us elsewhere in the
"Say: `If all created beings were to gather together
and help one another to produce a book like the
Qur'an, they would never be able to do it (17:88)'."
Truly, no created being can produce words similar
to those of the Holy Qur'an, for all created beings, no
matter how learned and capable they may be, are still
the creation of Allah, and cannot do the works that
only Allah can do.
For this reason, no one has been able to imitate the
Qur'a!n in the past and present and no one will be able
to do it in the future.
Therefore, since we have this great miracle of the
last of Allah's messengers, it is only right for us to
appreciate it, value it, recite it, learn its sublime
teachings, accept its guidance and use it to make
a programme for our lives, so as to live in freedom and bliss
in this world and in the Hereafter.
