Quran, a wondrous creation of God is a guidance and mercy for all people

Introduction

We often hear that Quran is a wondrous creation of God but why it is so is not clear to many of us except just looking to each other in most cases. However, some of the wonders invented by our scholars and imams to honor it to be rewarded by God are: (1) putting Quran on a higher shelf, (2) not touching it without ablution (wudu) with an exception of the translated Quran, (3) kissing it or carrying it putting on the chest, (4) just reciting or listening to it from someone or audio or video recording, (5) sending our children to Arabic school to learn Arabic (Quran) and (6) even reciting it when someone dies expecting God’s forgiveness of the sins of the dead. These teachings came down to us through the misguidance of the so called Muslim scholars who have taken religion as their profession claiming themselves to be knowledgeable of the Quran but they are practicing religion based on man-made teachings. They also claim that none can teach the Quran except them as well as band together to defeat God preventing others from learning it passing on their opinions (Fawtua). They misguide their blind followers sharing that Quran is difficult to learn and those who do not know Arabic cannot know the message in it. These are those who may know how to read and write the Arabic text of the Quran, even can memorize many the verses of it but in most cases they fail to decode the messages encoded in its verses individually or collectively as a set of verses linked together to explicitly clarify certain matters to eliminate our doubt and misconception.

However, some of us may be aware of its certain true wonders knowing from its attributes, method of revelation and transmission down to ensure its authenticity, understanding certain commandments placed in an exceptional way paying special attention to them, and facts derived from it through investigations and observations, But the best way to describe its wondrousness is if we could know all the wonders in the Quran, it would not be a wondrous any more. Hence, it is more logical to believe that Quran is a treasure of knowledge and wisdom, and we may reveal a new information every time we study, examine and inquire into it to address our concerns, questions, disputes to find the right way to practice our religion at all generations of people from the time of its revelation to the end of the world. As such, it is not possible for any person or a group or a nation to know all of them in any generation except what is needed to lead a righteous life for the believers living in a particular generation according to God’s will avoiding all satanic tricks and traps.

Exploring wonders in the Quran

Quran is so efficiently designed to be a single source of knowledge and wisdom for humanity providing with so many wonders that are reflected in its method of revelation along with an assurance of protecting the revealed Quran, attributes, histories, examples and allegories, expressions, models and patterns, prophecies, promises and oaths, signs and facts as our guidance and mercy including the creation of the universe and what is in it. However, let us just reflect to the following sets of verses of the Quran to reflect to its certain wonders to have a firm belief that Quran is a wondrous creation of God that serves as guidance and mercy for all the people of the world:

  • Quran is a wondrous creation of God to be a treasure of knowledge being our guidance that can be witnessed even reflecting to a small set of crucial verses of the Quran as described below:

[17:88] Say, “If the human and the Jinn were united together to bring a Quran like this, they could not bring one like this, even if they were helpers of one another.”
Note: It was meant wondrous referring to the literary excellence of Quran before the discovery of its mathematical coding and after the discovery of mathematical coding it was meant wondrous referring to both literary excellence and mathematical coding as maintained in it side by side while the overall message in the verse for all generations of people that makes it wondrous is none can produce such a Quran incorporating infinite wisdom and wonders to be a treasure of knowledge given to it by the Almighty, Most Wise, Most Gracious author and teacher of it.

[5:48] And we have revealed to you the scripture with the truth, confirming (musaddiqan) the scripture what is before it and consolidating (muhayminan) of it. So, you shall judge between them with what God has revealed, and do not follow their wishes as the truth has come to you. For each of you, we have decreed a law and a clear way. Had God willed, He would have made you one community, but He is to test you with what He has given you. So, you shall compete for righteousness. To God you all will return, then He will inform you of what in it you had disputed.
Note: Quran was revealed confirming and consolidating the scripture before it to make it a law and a way for the people from the time of prophet Muhammad until the end of the world. The true believers can lead a righteous life following guidance given in it without any inquiry into the previous scripture.

[12:3] We narrate to you the best history (ahsan al-qasas) with what we have revealed to you in this Quran, and before this, you were of those who were unaware.
[12:111] In their history, there is a lesson for the people of intelligence. This is not a fabricated Hadith but a confirmation of what was before it, and a detailed explanation of all things (wataf’seela kulli shayin), and is a guidance and mercy for a people who believe.
Note: Accurate history is stated in the Quran to be our lesson, which is a guidance and mercy for the believers

[17:41] We have cited (all kinds of example) in this Quran that they may take heed. But it only increases their aversion.
[17:89] We have cited for the people every kind of example (kulli mathalin) in this Quran, but most people refused to be only disbelievers.
[39:27] We have cited for the people every kind of example (kulli mathalin) in this Quran, so that they may take heed.
Note: Every kind of example is cited in the Quran for the people that they may take heed but in most people it increases aversion making them disbelievers.

[18:109] Say, “If the ocean were ink for the words of my Lord (likalimaati rabbee), the ocean would run out (la’nafida al-baharu), before the words of my Lord run out, even if we were to bring another like it for (ink) supplement.
[31:27] If all the trees in the earth were made into pens, and the ocean would be (ink), adding seven to it one after another, the words of God would not run out (maa nafidat kalimaatu allahi). God is Almighty, Most Wise.
Note: God is so merciful on us that He has given us all the words in the Quran what we need to lead a righteous life. Thus, in the event of any of our concern, questions, disputes we must inquire into it to obtain the appropriate answer. The message in the above two verses totally eliminates any dependency on any other sources for our religious teachings including the previous scripture.

Mathematical confirmation

This set of verses consisting of 9 verses across 6 suras as detailed above indicates the wondrous nature of the Quran can also be mathematically confirmed. The sum of the relevant verse and sura numbers is a multiple of 19 => 665 = 19x35 as shown in the table below:


Note: This mathematical confirmation is an explicit proof of Quran to be a wondrous creation of God being a treasure of knowledge having the best histories, examples and all the divine words that we need as our guidance and mercy confirming and consolidating the previous scripture while the statement: “It cannot be produced even if all the humans and the jinns work together to produce it” gives the Quran to be truly a wondrous creation of God.

  • God has told us 4 times in the Quran that He has made Quran easy to learn if anyone of us wishes to learn it while we often hear that it is difficult to learn:

[54:17] And indeed, we made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
[54:22] And indeed, we made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
[54:32] And indeed, we made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
[54:40] And indeed, we made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
Note: Some may argue that this verse refers to the memorization of the Quran. It is true that memorization has played a crucial role down its transmission until to have a standardized Arabic Quran for the whole world. Now there are thousands of printed copies of the standardized Quran all over the word including its availability in the public domain. Thus, the priority has shifted to learn it to follow being our guidance and mercy to lead a righteous life. While it has been made difficult to learn is a misinterpretation being a satanic trick, and an exact answer of the question: would God reveal a message so difficult to understand, yet expect people to follow it?

  • The four attributes of God as assigned to the Quran: great, wise, glorious and honorable indicate that He has provided infinite wisdom in it and we should value His words as they should be valued:

[50:1] Qaf and the Quran, the Glorious (al-Quran al-Majeed).
[85:21] Indeed, it is a glorious Quran (Quranun Majeed).
[15:87] And surely, we have given you the seven pairs, and the Quran, the great (wal-qur’aana al-azeem).
[36:2] And the Quran, the wise (wal-qur’aana al-hakeem).
[56:77] This is an honorable Quran (Quranun Kareem).
Note: God has provided infinite wisdom in the Quran and has made it trustworthy to be our guidance assigning His own attributes to it. Hence, those who trust in God would also trust His words to be only source of His teachings and laws.

Quran is repeatedly mentioned in the Quran to be a reminder including 4 times as a reminder for all the people of the world. Hence, we can read it at any languages but if we encounter any mistranslations of any verse we should confirm upon verification with the Arabic Quran or any other trustworthy translations:

[12:104] And you do not ask them any wage for it. It is but a reminder for the world (dhik’run lil’Aalameen).
[38:87] It is but a reminder for the world (dhik’run lil’Aalameen).
[68:52] It is but a reminder for the world (dhik’run lil’Aalameen).
[81:27] It is but a reminder for the world (dhik’run lil’Aalameen).
Note: Quran is a reminder for all the people of the world. Hence, we can read it at any languages but if we encounter any misinterpretation of any verse we should confirm it upon verification with the Arabic Quran or comparing with any other trustworthy translations.

Mathematical confirmation

The above 3 sets consisting of 13 verses across 10 suras in the Quran have closely related message can be mathematically confirmed to strengthen our hearts. If the relevant sura and verse numbers are added, the total is a multiple of 19 => 1064 = 19x56 (see details in the table below):


Note: This mathematical confirmation indicates an assurance from God that the Quran is a reminder for all the people of the world and reminds us that those who trust in Him would trust His words based on attributes given to it and study the reminder, even overcoming the language barrier if any to practice His religion as dictated in it.

  • God has not only made the Quran easy to learn to know the guidance given to us but He has also commanded us to study it being freed from the influence of the Satan as well as to be sincere to the revelation from the Lord of the universe:

[16:98] So, when you read the Quran, you shall seek refuge with God from the Satan, the rejected.
Note: Our salvation is attained by knowing and understanding the message in the Quran but the Satan interferes our efforts of recitation to prevent us from understanding it while the mere recitation of it without learning anything from it does not benefit us. Hence, the customary recitation of taking refuge in God before the recitation of the Quran what we see around us is not the commandment in the verse.

[54:17] And indeed, we made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
[54:22] And indeed, we made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
[54:32] And indeed, we made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
[54:40] And indeed, we made the Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
Note: God has made the Quran easy to learn but when someone tells us to be difficult is an attempt to defeat God. However, what God wants us to do is our sincere initiatives rather than expertise in the Arabic language or possessing of higher academic qualifications.

[56:79] None can touch (grasp) it (Quran) except the purified (the sincere).
[56:80] A revelation from the Lord of the universe.
Note: Those who are sincere can only understand the Quran being blessed by God while the Quran cannot be read without ablution is a misinterpretation whether it is an Arabic Quran or a non-Arabic Quran while the ablution is a requirement to observe the Salat prayer.

Mathematical confirmation

This set of verses consisting of 7 verses across 3 suras as detailed above indicates our salvation through knowing the Quran can also be mathematically confirmed. The sum of the relevant verse and sura numbers is a multiple of 19 => 665 = 19x35 as shown in the table below:


Note: This mathematical confirmation is an explicit proof of the message in the Quran that we must take initiatives to study it sincerely being freed from any influence of the Satan being a revelation from the Lord of the universe while the mere recitation of it without learning anything from it does not benefit us.

Conclusion

25 verses across 16 suras grouping in 3 different sets are studied to understand Quran to be a wondrous creation of God focusing on: (1) a treasure of knowledge to explore and inquire into it to get appropriate answer of any of our concerns, questions, disputes, (2) a reminder for all the people of the world to make efforts of learning it who trust God and His words to be a guidance and mercy, and (3) a revelation from the Lord of the universe is to study it being sincere as well as freed from any influence of the Satan to decode the message encoded in each and sets of verses closely linked to each other. Each set is also supported by the mathematical confirmation to strengthen our hearts to be certain and clear about the message derived from the set.

The first set of 9 verses indicates Quran to be a wondrous creation of God being a treasure of knowledge having the best histories, examples and all the divine words that we need as our guidance and mercy confirming and consolidating the previous scripture while we may reveal a new information as our guidance and mercy every time we study, examine and inquire into it to address concerns, questions, disputes for the people at all times until the end of the world. Someone might say or share with others what he/she has learned from it as of today as a student of the Quran meeting the requirements as defined by the author, the Almighty and Omniscient God.

The second set of 13 verses is an assurance from God that the Quran is a reminder for all the people of the world and those who trust in Him would trust His words based on attributes given and make the sincere efforts to know the guidance, even overcoming the language barrier if any to practice His religion as dictated in it.

The third set of 7 verses is the message in the Quran that we must take sincere initiatives to study it being a revelation from the Lord of the universe being freed from any influence of the Satan while the mere recitation of it without learning anything from it does not benefit us.

This study confirms that God being the author has collected all the information in the Quran that we need making it the only source of our guidance to understand His religion as well as to perfect beliefs and practices of His rites as given. Now, in the event of any of our disputes or confusion we must examine and inquire into it to obtain the appropriate answer, which eliminates our dependency on any other sources or personal opinions of any individuals or groups. Hence, accepting any information from any other sources and following them make us idol worshipers while many of us are aware that idol worshiping nullifies our all works and is an unforgiveable sin.

Even if we apply our common sense, it is noticeable that our religious beliefs and practices are corrupted with many man-made innovations all over the world, What are noticeable that show offs including crowding to the masjids to spend time with others in festivities and dresses have increased among many of us instead of taking initiatives to do right things in a right way. Is it not a wonder in the Quran that the method of religious practices given to prophet Ibrahim about 4,500 years ago but got corrupted over the period of time while the correct method to practice can be derived and confirmed from the Quran or made it a guidance and mercy for the true believers to lead a righteous life resolving all concerns, questions and disputes without any inquiry into the previous scripture?

However, we are living in a time era of human civilization on earth when we witness that a four and a half years old child can do college mathematics. But it is unfortunate that many of us who have the highest level of qualifications cannot reflect to the wonders given in the Quran to find their right path except following conjectures and guesses listening to the closed minded religious scholars and imams without inquiry into the Quran. Thus, the majority people even those who believe in God and practice religion would not realize that they will be losers in the Hereafter for committing idol worship.
Peaceful Friday, salaam and God bless. Tafazzal (4/13/2018).
