Proof of The Truth in the Quran

Linguistically, the Quran is derived from the word Qara’a – Yaqra’u – Qur’anan which means ‘recitation’ or ‘that is read’. The basis of this understanding is in QS. Al-Qiyamah verses 16 – 18 which reads as follows:

لَا تُحَرِّكْ بِهِ لِسَانَكَ لِتَعْجَلَ بِهِ (16) إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا جَمْعَهُ وَقُرْآنَهُ (17) فَإِذَا قَرَأْنَاهُ فَاتَّبِعْ قُرْآنَهُ (18)

It means: “Do not move your tongue to the Qur’an because you want to haste it. It is for Us to gather it and to recite it. When We have recited it, follow its recitation.”

The evidence of the Truth of the Qur’an can not be made equal, even similar to kalam in it a single verse can not be. During the reign of Abu Bakr ash-Siddiq, false prophets appeared who wanted to make some kind of holy book of the Quran but failed miserably.

5 benefits of reading the Quran

They can’t write a single sentence with the quality of a beautiful sentence like the one in the Quran. He said, “O my Lord, indeed I have come to you with a book from your Lord

Al-Maidah (48) as follows:

وَاَنْزَلْنَآ اِلَيْكَ الْكِتٰبَ بِالْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ مِنَ الْكِتٰبِ وَمُهَيْمِنًا عَلَيْهِ فَاحْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَآ اَنْزَلَ اللّٰهُ وَلَا تَتَّبِعْ اَrهْوَاۤءَهُمْ عَمَّا جَاۤءَكَ مِنَ الْحَقِّۗ لِكُلٍّ جَعَلْنَا مِنْكُمْ شِرْعَةً وَّمِنْهَاجًا ۗوَلَوْ شَاۤءَ اللّٰهُ لَجَعَلَكُمْ اُمَّةً وَّاحِدَةً وَّلٰكِنْ لِّيَبْلُوَكُمْ فِيْ مَآ اٰتٰىكُمْ فَاسْتَبِقُوا الْخَيْرٰتِۗ اِلَى اللّٰهِ مَرْجِعُكُمْ جَمِيْعًا فَيُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ فِيْهِ تَخْتَلِفُوْنَۙ

The meaning of the verse is implied is a challenge to those who doubt the Qur’an to:

  • Composing a whole Quran (QS. 52:34) Composing ten surahs of the kind contained in the Qur’an (QS. 11:13)
  • Compose a surah only in the Qur’an (QS. 10:38)
  • Compose something like or more or less equal to 1 surah from the Qur’an (QS. 2:23).
