The word Quran occurs some 70 times in the text itself, and other names and words are also said to refer to the Quran.

Who Wrote Holy Quran?

Qur’an is the book of Allah Almighty. The whole Quran with its sections, Surahs, and words is the real words of Allah Almighty, and not the discourse of any of humankind, jinn or angle. The Angel of disclosure – Gabriel or Jibril (PBUH), just heard it from Allah and revealed it to the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (PBUH).

Allah the Almighty Says:

 “Say the Holy Spirit has brought the revelation from thy Lord in truth, in order to strengthen those who believe and as a Guide and Glad Tidings to Muslims”

_ [Sura Al- Nahl, verse 102]

The Islamic Ummah is specially privileged by learning and retaining Quran by heart, unlike the other three revelations. Allah the Almighty Asserts:

 “Verily this is a Revelation from the Lord of the Worlds. With it came down the Spirit of Faith and Truth. To thy heart and mind, that thou mayest admonish. In the perspicuous Arabic tongue.”

_ [Sura Al- Shuara, verses 192-194].

Allah (SWT) challenged humanity and jinn-kind to create the like of this Quran, or part of it, however, they failed miserably to mimic the wonder, albeit the rivals of the Quran were notable for oral verse and dominated in expert articulation and abstract forces.

The Quran was not uncovered to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) at the same time yet it the disclosure was by events and occasions. This fact was inferable from the preeminent astuteness of Allah (SWT) to simplify the comprehension and retention of the Quran to the Muslim country of which greater part was uneducated until individuals progressively get educated, ace the lessons of Islam, and get rid of invalid convictions and unethical customs.

Allah (SWT) Says:

“He it is Who hath sent among the unlettered ones a messenger of their own, to recite unto them His revelations and to make them grow, and to teach them the Scripture and wisdom, though heretofore they were indeed in error manifest”

_ [Surah Al-Jumma, Verse 2].
