Advice of Scholars - HEAVENLY BOOKS

In the Books which Allâhu ta’âlâ revealed, either the pronunciations or the meanings of some âyat-i-kerîmas, or both, were changed (naskh) by Him. The Qur’ân al-kerîm replaced all the Books and abolished the validity of their rules. There will never be any mistakes, additions, forgotten or missing points in the Qur’ân al-kerîm until the end of the world, nor will it be forgotten. All knowledge of the past and the future exist in the Qur’ân al-kerîm. For this reason, it is higher and more valuable than all the Books. The greatest mu’jiza of Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’alaihi wa sallam’ is the Qur’ân al-kerîm. If all human beings and genies would assemble and try to say something similar to the shortest Sûra of the Qur’ân al-kerîm, they would fail to do it. In fact, the eloquent, literary poets of Arabia assembled and strove very hard, but they failed to say something like three short âyats. They could not stand against the Qur’ân al-kerîm. They were stupefied. Allâhu ta’âlâ makes the enemies of Islam incapable and defeated before the Qur’ân al-kerîm. The eloquence of the Qur’ân al-kerîm is above human power. Human beings are incapable of saying as it says. Âyat-i-kerîmas in the Qur’ân al-kerîm are unlike the poetry, prose or rhymed verse of human beings. Nevertheless, it was said in the letters of the language spoken by the literary, eloquent men of Arabia.

One hundred and four of the heavenly Books were revealed to us: it is well-known that ten suhuf (pl. of sahîfa, little book) were revealed to Âdam ‘’alaihis-salâm’, fifty suhuf to Shis (Shît) ‘’alaihis-salâm’, thirty suhuf to Idrîs ‘’alaihis-salâm’ and ten suhuf to Ibrâhîm ‘’alaihis-salâm’; the Tawrât (Torah) was revealed to Mûsâ (Moses) ‘’alaihis-salâm’, the Zebûr to Dâwûd ‘’alaihissalâm’, the Injîl (Latin ‘Evangelium’) to ’Îsâ (Jesus) ‘’alaihissalâm’ and the Qur’ân al-kerîm to Muhammad ‘’alaihis-salâm’.
