The Best Book / Do you know?

The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: ‘فَإِنَّ خَيْرَ الْحَدِيثِ كِتَابُ اللّٰهِ i.e. the best Word is the Book of Allah (Quran Majeed)’. (Muslim, pp. 335, Hadees 2005)

Dear children! Glorious Quran is the last book of Allah Almighty sent down to His last Prophet Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم for the guidance of His bondmen. As Allah Almighty is superior to the entire creation, His sacred book is also greatest and most superior of all the books.

Glorious Quran is the only book in the history of the world that is so unique, matchless and unparalleled that even if millions of scholars of the world come together and try to write a book like the Holy Quran, they will not be able to do so. Other books can be altered even the previous revealed books such as ‘Zaboor’, ‘Tawrat’ and ‘Injeel’ have also been altered. Glorious Quran is the only book for which Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ Himself has protected it from any kind of corruption. It is for the reason, since the time Holy Quran has revealed, no single alteration of even a dot has been made, let alone the matter of addition or deduction of words.

One who recites even one letter of the Holy Quran gets ten virtues. The historical events, admonitory parables and guidelines for a successful life mentioned in the glorious Quran are extremely important and beneficial for us. Whoever will recite, understand and take pieces of advice from the glorious Quran will become successful both in this world and the Hereafter.

May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ grant us Taufeeq to recite, understand and act upon the Holy Quran.  اٰمِيۡن   بِجَاهِ   النَّبِيِّ  الۡاَمِيۡن   صَلَّى  اللّٰهُ  عَلَيۡهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم
