What is the Quran? The Quran is the speech of Allah revealed through Angel Jibreel to Prophet Muhammad (saws). The Quran is the Holy Book of the Muslims. The subject of the Quran is humanity. Its purpose is to guide human beings out of the darkness of evil into the light of truth. The Quran is the last revealed book and it is for all mankind, Allah has laid down in it once and for all how we should live on this earth . The directions and commands contained in it apply for all times to come. It is mankinds best guide to the truth of God and eternal happiness. The Quran contains answers to problems that come to us in life, prayers with which to call on Allah, thank Him and ask forgiveness and His help. Furthermore it contains guidance as to ways of life, duties to be carried out to God (prayers, fasting, charity etc.), stories of Prophets, regarding heaven and hell, laws in Islam and many more.
Also Many Quranic statements have been shown to be in perfect agreement with scientific findings which are well established. Many of these findings are only recent due to the advancement in technology and could not have been known more than 1400 years ago when the Quran was revealed . This knowledge could have only be known by the Creator Himself, yet to be discovered by Man.
Allah has made it His concern to preserve the Quran and safeguard it against corruption. He says in the Quran: "Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian." (15:9)
The Quran was not revealed at once in its complete form, rather it was revealed over a period of 23 years during the prophethood of Prophet Muhammad (saws).
The last verse revealed to the Prophet(saws) shortly before his death was: "....This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favour upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion."(5:3)
There are three types of people in this world: sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. Some people prefer to believe that evil doesn't exist in the world, and if it ever darkened their doorstep, they wouldn't know how to protect themselves. Those are the sheep.
Then you've got predators who use violence to prey on the weak. They're the wolves.
And then there are those blessed with the gift of aggression, an overpowering need to protect the flock. These men are the rare breed who live to confront the wolf. They are the sheepdog.

A variation on a theme: "We have heard enough of liberty and the rights of man; it is high time we hear something of the duty of men and the rights of authority." #duty#men#authority#rights#right#liberty
