Miracles Of Muhammad ‘Alaihis-salâm'

The greatest miracle of Muhammad 'alaihis-salâm' is the Qur'ân al-kerîm. All the poets and men of literature that have come up to today have acknowledged their shortcoming and admiration about the poetic and semantic superiority of the Qur'ân al-kerîm. They have not been able to rehearse a literary piece approximating to the sublime standard of any one of its âyats. With respect to eloquence and rhetoric, it is quite dissimilar to the human language. A single verbal addition or excision spoils the beauty in its phraseology and purport. Efforts to substitute even one of its words have proven futile. Its poetic style is unlike any one of those of Arabian poets. It informs about many a past and present event. The more you read it or hear it, the more enthusiasm will you feel to read or hear it. Tired as you normally may be, you never feel bored. It is a fact established with innumerable events experienced that reading it or listening to someone reading it cures melancholy. Awestrickenness or sudden feelings of fear upon hearing it being read or recited are not rare events, and some people have even died with its effect. Many implacably inimical hearts became mollified when they heard the Qur'ân al-kerîm being read or recited, and their owners became Believers. Some enemies of Islam, particularly those insidious heretics disguised in Muslim names, i.e. the groups called Muattalâ, Melâhida and Qarâmita, attempted to change, to defile, and to substitute the Qur'ân al-kerîm, yet their attempts ended in disillusionment. The Torah and the Bible, on the other hand, have been changed continuously, and they are still being changed, by people. The Qur'ân al-kerîm contains information about all scientific facts, including those that cannot be obtained by way of experimentation, beautiful ethical principles and methods that will equip a person with superior merits, goodnesses that will bring happiness in this world and the next, the earliest creatures as well as the last ones, and things from which man can reap benefits as well as those which will cause harm, and all these things are stated expressly or symbolically. And there are people who can understand the symbolical statements. The Qur'ân alkerîm is an embodiment of all the open and hidden facts contained in the Torah, in the Bible, and in the Zebûr. Allâhu ta'âlâ, alone, knows all the information contained in the Qur'ân al-kerîm. He has intimated most of it to His beloved Prophet 'sall-Allâhu ta'âlâ 'alaihi wa sallam'. Alî and Huseyn 'radiy-Allâhu ta'âlâ 'anhumâ' stated that they knew a major part of that knowledge. It is a grand blessing to read the Qur'ân al-kerîm. Allâhu ta'âlâ has bestowed this blessing on the Ummat (People) of His Habîb (beloved one, darling, i.e. Muhammad 'alaihis-salâm'), (that is, on Muslims). Angels are deprived of this blessing. For this reason, they gather together at places where people are reading the Qur'ân al-kerîm and listen to it. All the books of tafsîr explain only a tiny part of the information contained in the Qur'ân al-kerîm. On the Day of Judgement, Muhammad 'alaihis-salâm' shall mount the minbar and recite the Qur'ân al-kerîm. People who listen to him will understand it in its entirety.
