Christian enquiry in Quran

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His  forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol,  no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Since the origin of man’s creation on earth,  the Way of God has been that He chose some people to be His Prophets and Messengers on earth,  and they came and declared themselves as God’s Messengers to mankind,  and gave the people the Message that they had received by inspiration from God.   

 

The Messages of God for the guidance of mankind came in three forms:

  1. God revealed His Message to His chosen Prophets through inspiration,
  2. (At times) God sent His Arch Angel in the form of a man to deliver His Message to His Prophets,
  3. (At times)  God gave His Message to His chosen Prophets in a Book or Tablet form.

 

All the Prophets that came to earth were selected and chosen by the same One God,  and they all received the Message of Guidance from God which they declared to mankind.   Whether the Prophets were Adam,  Noah,  Abraham,  David,  Solomon,  Moses,  Jesus,  or Mohamed;  they all received Revelations from the same God Almighty.

 

Your question: How did the Koran came into existence, and who has the original copy of the Koran .

The Holy Quran was revealed over a period of 23 years by God to His Last Messenger,  Mohamed ibn Abdulla (saws) through inspiration.    As soon as Prophet Mohamed (saws) received the Divine Revelations by inspiration (which today we can easily understand through the computer term ‘download’) in his heart,  he would immediately declare the Divine Revelations to the people.   His noble companions used to immediately write and document these exact Revelations verbatim on whatever was available to them; on bones, on leather, on barks of trees, on paper,  etc.   Many of the companions would also memorize these Divine Revelations,  and thus the Quran was preserved in people’s hearts by memory,  and in written form since its inception.   

 

Thus the Holy Quran which is available everywhere today,  is the same,  exact,  verbatim Quran that was revealed to the Last Messenger of Allah (saws).   Not a phrase,  not a word,  not even an iota of change is found in the billions and billions of copies that are available today!  

 

To the best of our knowledge,  the original copy of the first Quran written in a proper book form by the noble companions of the Messenger of Allah (saws) is at the Topkapi Museum in Istanbul,  Turkey.

 

Your question: Well basically , I would like to know whether the  Koran was being written by holy people or its given by God in some form or some way , or its the teaching of god or someone else.

The Glorious Quran was revealed by God through inspiration to Prophet Mohamed (saws) ,  and written down immediately by the companions as the Messenger of Allah (saws) recited the Revelations he had just received.    Every word of the Quran is the very word of the Merciful Lord and Creator,  declared in the first degree of conversation (I,  Me,  etc.).  

 

Not a word or even an alphabet in the Quran is the work of man!   Every single word and alphabet is the Direct Divine Revelation of the Lord of the Heavens and the Earth! 

 

Your question: One More Thing , I Would Like To Know Is That Is There Any Thing , More Important Then The Koran !! (I.e. Any More Holy Books .)  

It is a condition of faith of every muslim to believe in each and every Book revealed by God;  be they the Psalms God sent to  Prophet David (a.s.),  or the Revelations God sent to Prophet Abraham (a.s.),  or the Torah God gave to Prophet Moses (a.s.),  or the Gospel which God sent to Prophet Jesus (a.s.),  or the Quran which God revealed to Prophet Mohamed (saws)!   

 

With time,  some of the above Divine Books,  Revelations,  and Tablets were destroyed,  and some were altered by the religious ‘doctors’ and ‘holy men’!    Then,  finally,  God revealed His Last and Final Testament to His Last and Final Messenger,  Mohamed (saws),  as a Mercy and Guidance for mankind until the end of time.  

 

The Holy Quran confirms what is intact from the Divine Books revealed before it,  and supercedes all the other Holy Books,  and serves as the Last and Final Testament of the All Knowing,  All Mighty Lord of the Universe;   and there is no book which is more important to the believers than the Holy Quran on this planet earth!  

 

If one reads,  without any bias or prejudice,  the Old Testament and the New Testament,  and compares it with the words of God of the Last Testament (The Holy Quran);  he will easily be able to realize and differentiate the additions and fabrications that were done by men in the older testaments;  and the Truth will stand quite clear from the fabrications!  

 

The Gospel was given to Prophet Jesus (a.s.) to confirm what remained intact from the Torah;   and the Glorious Quran was given to Prophet Mohamed (saws) to confirm what remained intact from the Gospel and The Law!    It is the belief of every true believer,  and he is not a muslim who believes otherwise:  that the Gospel,  the Torah and the Glorious Quran are in their original form,  the very words of the same Lord God Almighty!

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
