Quran is the holy book that is the source of the highest law as well as a guide to the life of Muslims. In the Quran there are commandments and also prohibitions of Allah as a rule of life that He has set for mankind.
In addition, in the Quranic verses there is also science that in modern times is only known by humans, but it has been written in the Quran since 1400 years ago.
Not only that, the Qur’an also has privileges that will amaze you and be more convinced that this Qur’an is indeed the book of the Creator, Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.
Here are 7 special quranic specialties that you should know:
Al Quran Contains Previous and Future Stories
In the Quran there are stories that have happened in the past, as well as explaining also the events that are coming / have not happened.
In the stories contained in the Qur’an, we can certainly learn from what has happened before that is told in the Qur’an to be a lesson and guide to life in the future.
The Quran Is Guaranteed Authenticity by Allah
The refinement of these earlier books was revealed to the Prophet 14 centuries ago. However, until now, its authenticity is still maintained.
Although many people want to change or add and subtract the contents of the Qur’an, it must fail, because Allah always keeps this holy book.
In fact, if all the Qur’ans around the world were destroyed, Muslims could still reconstitute them perfectly without anything or more. Because, there are many hafidz Quran in various parts of the world, that is one of the ways Allah in maintaining the authenticity of the Qur’an.
There’s Science in It
In addition to being a book that contains the rules of life that Allah created for mankind, the Qur’an also contains knowledge in it.
Several articles in makintau.com have discussed some of the specialties of the Qur’an that contain this science, such as about the creation of the universe, the birth of humans, the movement of heavenly bodies, the expanding universe, and many others.
The Qur’an is not a book of science, but it is the book of the one that created this universe, namely Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala. All the secrets of the universe god knows. In fact, scientific problems that may still be a question mark by even scientists, the Qur’an has the answer. One of them is about the mountain.
Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala said:
“And We have made on this earth strong mountains so that it may shake with them.” [QS. Al-Anbya verse 31]
As we know in modern science, it is revealed that mountains do serve to prevent earth shaking.
Mountains were created from earth slabs that moved and collided millions of years ago. This plate is known to be able to hold energy from within the earth.
Thus, what Allah says in the Qur’an is in accordance with the knowledge obtained by humans through the scientific method. All knowledge comes from God.
Beauty of the Quran
In reading the Qur’an there are tajwid rules that must be applied. Likewise, there is a so-called qiroaah or langgam reading. The Qur’an can even be voiced very melodiously with both guidance (tajwid and qiroah).
Not only melodious, the beauty of the Qur’an is also found in a slick grammar and can not be imitated by humans. Proof?
In the period after the prophet Muhammad Shalallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam died, there was a false prophet named Musailamah Al kazab. He tried to make a counter-book of the Qur’an.
But the result, nil. The book made by Musailamah is completely meaningless, even the structure of the language is not at all beautiful.
Quran is The Most Easily Memorized Book
The Qur’an has 114 letters divided into 30 juz, with more than 6,000 verses. However, in fact there are many people who are able to memorize the entire Contents of the Quran perfectly, even many small children who are able to memorize the Qur’an.
The Right Number of Numbers
In the Qur’an there are several words related to mathematical formulas. One of them is related to modern dating.
We know in one year there are 12 months consisting of 365 days. Well, in the Quran, the word ‘shahr’ which means that month there are 12. While the word ‘yaum’ means day, the number is 365.
The similarities are certainly not a coincidence. There is a careful reckoning of God there. And, this proves that the Qur’an is not man-made, but really kalamullah.
Some words in the Quran and its verses, it turns out to be paired with each other and have a balanced amount. For example: the words ‘life’ and ‘death’ which means life and death. These words are repeated in the Quran, each 145 times.
In addition, there are also the words ‘disaster’ and ‘sukr’ which means disaster and gratitude. These words are repeated in the Qur’an 75 times.
If contemplated more deeply, the balance of this word contains the wisdom, that life will end in death. Likewise, behind every disaster, there is always a blessing of God that can be grateful.
After knowing the 7 privileges of the Quran, may we become more often read the Qur’an. Because, in it there are many lessons that can be used as a guide to life in living this life, hopefully useful.
