All Books are for One Book


What is the virtue and importance of the Qur’an? What kind of book is the Quran?

Thousands of books written in the Islamic world over the past 1400 years have been for the aim of understanding and plumbing the depths of one ‘Book’ and gaining a closer acquaintance with one ‘Man’ and becoming less like ones self, and more like  his person. If all the trees in the world were to serve as pens and the seas as ink, it would still be impossible to enumerate the wisdoms and truths contained in the Holy Quran.[1] Within it are the codes of all knowledge and wisdom, as well as the keys to happiness in life both in this world and in the Hereafter.

The Holy Quran always leads the way, while the sciences follow in its wake. Each scientific discovery confirms and sheds light on the truths of the Quran.

Allah, glory unto Him, declares:

“We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and in their own souls, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?” (Fussilat, 53)

Continuing research into the Quran will continue to manifest its hidden miracles anew. The Prophet –upon him blessings and peace- has in fact informed that scholars can never have enough of reading the Quran, that it never loses its freshness in spite of continuous recital and that its aspects which reduce man to speechless admiration are inexhaustible.[2]
