Allah’s Praise of His Book – The Quran

Allah says:

“And indeed, We have bestowed upon you seven of Al Mathani (seven repeatedly recited verses) i.e. Surah Al Fatiha and the Grand Quran.” Quran (15:87)

In another Verse, Allah used the word “perfected” to describe the Quran:

Allah says:

“Alif- Lam- Ra.( These are one of the miracles of the Quran and none but Allah ( Alone) knows their meanings.) (This is) a Book, the Verses whereof are perfected (in every sphere of knowledge etc) and then explained in detail from One (Allah), Who is All Wise and Well Acquainted (with all things).” (Quran 11:1)

And in yet another verse, Allah said that the Quran is a witness over previous scriptures:

Allah says:

“And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book (this Quran) in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it and Mohayminan (Trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (Old Scriptures). (Quran 5:48)

In this Verse, Allah said that the Quran is Mohayminan over previous scriptures. What this means is that it contains in preserved form the aims and teachings of previously revealed books – such as the Torah and Injeel (Gospel); furthermore, it is a witness over them, confirming what is correct in them( for they have been distorted by the hands of men), and correcting the mistakes that they contain( mistakes which of course are not from Allah, but from the people who distorted the books He Revealed).

Also, Allah informs us that, in the Mother of the Book (i.e, the Al Lauh Al Mahfuz), Allah described the Quran as being “Exalted, full of Wisdom.”

Allah Says:

“And Verily, it( this Quran) is in the Mother of the Book (i.e Al Lauh Al Mahfuz), before Us, indeed Exalted, full of Wisdom.” (Quran 43:4)

Without a doubt, the Noble Quran is exalted above all other books that Allah revealed to previous Prophets; it is, after all, a miracle that will remain manifest on earth until the end of time. The Quran is also Hakeem, which is loosely translated as meaning, ‘full wisdom’. Although ‘full of wisdom’ is meant by the word ‘ Hakeem’ in the above mentioned verse, other meanings are implied as well: Such as the fact that the Quran is put together in a perfect manner, or that it is completely free of all defects, or that none of its rulings run contrary to the ideals of wisdom and justice.

And finally, in four separate Verses Allah described the Quran as being the Blessed book. ( Al An’aam : 92, 155 ; Al Anbiyaa: 5; and Saad: 29)
