5 Proofs That Quran is a Timeless Miracle

THE INIMITABLE REVELATION OF GOD:

There are many signs that indicate that Muhammad (peace be upon him) was indeed a true Prophet. The greatest of these signs is the Quran. In it Allah challenges the Arabs and others, until the Day of Resurrection, to produce something like it, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

{And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a Surah (i.e. chapter) the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah, if you should be truthful.} (Quran 2:23)

And Allah says elsewhere in the Quran:

{Or do they say [about the Prophet], ‘He invented it?’ Say, ‘Then bring forth a Surah like it and call upon [for assistance] whomever you can besides Allah, if you should be truthful.’} (10:38)

The Islamic scholar Ibn al-Jawzi stated that the Quran is inimitable in several ways:

FIRST, in its eloquence and precision, its conciseness and comprehensiveness. A story might be related at length [in a place of the Quran] and then [the same story might be] repeated in condensed form [elsewhere] without losing any of its substance.

SECOND, in its dissimilarity to the styles of prose and poetry which were used by the Arabs. They failed in efforts to imitate it and acknowledged its superiority.

THIRD, in its information about nations of the past and the prophets who are known to the Jews and Christians, although the one who conveyed it (i.e. Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him,) was illiterate and could not read or write, nor had he met with scholars or soothsayers. In fact, those Arabs who could read and write and did meet with scholars did not know [much of] the information contained in the Quran.

FOURTH, in its information about unknown events of the future, which is clear-cut evidence, since what it stated proved to be true.

To illustrate this point, Allah challenged the mankind:

{And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a Surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah, if you should be truthful. But if you do not – and you will never be able to – then fear the Fire, whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the disbelievers.} (2:23-24)

Nobody could produce a Surah like a chapter of the Quran.

[When the nascent Muslim nation of Madinah was in a state of weakness,] Allah said:

{You will surely enter al-Masjid al-Haram [of Makkah], if Allah wills, in safety, with your heads shaved and [hair] shortened, not fearing [anyone].} (48:27)

Within several months thereafter, the Muslims entered into the city of Makkah in a state of safety.

Moreover, addressing Abu Lahab, [a leader of the pagans of Makkah], and his wife, Allah said:

{He will [enter to] burn in a Fire of [blazing] flame, and his wife [as well] – the carrier of firewood. Around her neck is a rope of [twisted] fiber.} (111:3-5)

Both of them died in a state of unbelief.

FIFTH, in its freedom from inconsistency and contradiction, because: {If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.} (4:82)

A Timeless Miracle

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

“There was no prophet among the [former] prophets but that he was given signs which the people believed in. And indeed, I was given a revelation (i.e. the Qur’an) that Allah revealed to me. So I hope to be the one, with the most followers on the Day of Resurrection.” (Narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Commenting on this Prophetic statement, Ibn al-Jawzi stated:

“The miracles of former prophets ceased with their death. So, if an atheist said today, “What proof is there that Muhammad and Moses were true prophets?” and he was told, “The moon was split for Muhammad and the sea was split for Moses” he would say, “That is impossible.”

Therefore, Allah made this Quran a miracle for Muhammad (peace be upon him) remaining forever, which shows his truthfulness after his death as well as that of the former prophets, since he confirmed their message and gave information about them.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him!

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
