Qur'ân Al-kerîm Is The Word Of Allâhu Ta'âlâ

The Qur'ân al-kerîm is the word of Allâhu ta'âlâ. That is, every word and statement within the Qur'ân al-kerîm was communicated to our Prophet 'alaihissalam' by Allâhu ta'âlâ. These words were communicated to our Prophet by means of wahy, i. e. , through one of the great angels, Gabrail 'alaihissalam'. Gabrail 'alaihissalam', disguised as a human being, read these words to our Prophet 'alaihissalam' and had him memorize them. The Qur'ân al-kerîm came to our Prophet 'alaihissalam' piece by piece, chapter by chapter. As soon as our Prophet 'alaihissalam' received the orders of Allâhu ta'âlâ, he would memorize them. Subsequently, he had his close companions memorize them, too. He also had his secretaries, some time later, write them down. Afterwards, all the chapters were brought together and the Qur'ân al-kerîm was compiled into a book. Every copy of the Qur'ân al-kerîm existing today is identical to every other copy of the Qur'ân al-kerîm in the world. Not even one word or even one letter is different. However, the Bibles used by today's Christians are not similar nor consistent with one another.

It is absolutely necessary to believe in every verse (every sentence) of the Qur'ân al-kerîm. To disbelieve even one verse of it will definitely destroy one's belief. The next world of an unbeliever will be unbearable.

Allâhu ta'âlâ's commandments are not debatable. It is not permissible to interpret them with one's own understanding, to perceive them in accordance with one's own interest at heart. The only person who could understand the Qur'ân al-kerîm was our Prophet ''alaihi 's-salâm'. By means of hadîth-i sherîfs, our Prophet ''alaihi 's-salâm' explained those parts of the Qur'ân al-kerîm which we could not have comprehended otherwise. Moreoever, great Islamic scholars interpreted the Qur'ân al-kerîm. Most of the verses in the Qur'ân al-kerîm have extensive meanings. Therefore, it is not possible to express the full meaning of a verse simply by translating it word for word. It is only possible to learn the meaning of a verse from the interpretation or explanation of an authorized Islamic scholar.
