The Miracles of the Holy Quran


Almighty Allah (SWT) has said, " The Way of God, To Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Behold (how) all affairs tend towards God!"The Holy Qur'an , Chapter 41, verse 53

Almighty Allah (SWT)has said, "Ta Ha (Muhammad). We have not sent down The Qur'an to thee to be (an occasion) for thy distress, But only as an admonition to those who fear (God), --A revelation from Him Who created the earth and the heavens on high"The Holy Qur'an: Chapter 20, verses 1-4

A miracle (Al-mu'jiza singular of mu'jiza) is one that breaches the well known absolute cosmic phenomena. Miracles are weapons of mercy, whereby Almighty Allah, Praise & Exaltation to Him - arms His Prophets and Messengers in order to lead men to His path and grant His Prophets and Messengers support, thereby underlining the very fact that those who bear such distinctive and rending miracles which challenge all codes, are indeed His Prophets and Messengers. When schemes circulate to obliterate a fact or message which the Creator Glory to Him wishes to manifest; and when the enemies of belief due to a conviction of the Almighty sense a victory or anticipate achieving their objective, or rather perceive having the upper hand over the Prophets or Messengers and are about to subject them to their control; the decree from Almighty Allah (SWT) is issued, depriving the polytheists of achieving their goal; bringing victory to the Will of Allah (SWT) with regard to His servants. It is then that Right emerges as the victory and Falsehood is defeated - for surely false hood is doomed for defeat.
If we contemplate on the past, we will find such events to be quite obvious during the numerous eras. As a matter of fact, this was the case with each and every Prophet, Messenger, successor of a prophet, or righteous servant of Almighty Allah (SWT).

a visible or sensed cosmic miracle, one that is felt or witnessed by other, is accepted by those who witness it and believe in it, For those who did not witness it, it is a sign of goodness, an event and a moral. It is believed by those who believe in Allah and those who believe in such miracles.
Therefore, when they are mentioned in the text of the Holy Qur'an, he comes to know that it is , indeed coming from Almighty Allah, Glory and Exaltation to Him. Such miracles are never repeated no matter how science advances. This has been true since the days of Prophets and Messengers such as Ibrahim, Moses, Jesus, etc.,peace be on all of them. No matter how much progress takes place with regard to man's scope of knowledge, these miracles will remain till the day of Judgement. No staff used by any human being can split the sea, nor can the most renown doctor bring a dead person back to life; for these are miracles from Almighty Allah whereby, He assists His Prophets and Messengers. No human being can perform miracles such as these, for they are His creatures as well. This is why they are called miracles.

Such miracles came to an end when those eras ended. For example, after the sea had been cleft for Moses (AS), it went back to its former state; and the fire that did not burn Ibrahim (AS) regained its characteristics of burning. Yet, the miracle brought forth by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is one of the Characteristics of the Almighty; It is His own Word, and a spoken word remains spoken so long as the One Who speaks it remains! A characteristic remains to be so long as the One to Whom it is attached remains! For this reason, all miracles performed by Prophets and Messengers came to a conclusion as soon as they were performed except the miracles of the Holy Qur'an, for these will continue to be such incessantly till the Day of Judgment.

You may ask why only Muhammad (pbuh) or why only the miracles of the Holy Qur'an and the answer to your question is provided by Almighty Allah , Himself (SWT) Who said: "We will soon show them Our Signs in the universe in their own selves until it becomes quite clear to them that it is the truth. It is not sufficient as regarding your Lord that He is Witness over all things," The Holy Qur'an (41:53) This statement of the Almighty, particularly, His emphatic promise that He -- using a future tense will show us His signs (miracles, wonders etc,which will fill the cosmos) is a true promise till humans realize that Almighty Allah (SWT) is Absolute Truth. Almighty Allah (SWT) in the same verse challenges us by asking "Is it not sufficient as regarding, your Lord that He is Witness over all things?" Holy Qur'an (41:53)

The Holy Qur'an then continues to provide each and every generation with an output of additional knowledge different than the one it provided in past generations. That is to say, future generations will find in the Holy Qur'an what the present one cannot. The Holy Qur'an is the Message revealed for the whole world, for all people, all generations. It is the speech of the Almighty, not of humans, and as such, it never ceases nor does it come to a close. Otherwise, the Holy Qur'an; would deprive future generation of its output of knowledge of miracles. But, Allah, Glory to Him, knows that a few centuries after the revelation of the Holy Qur'an there will be generations alleging that the age of belief was over and that the age of science and technology had dawned.

For this reason, He embedded within the text of the Holy Qur'an that which is inimitable by people of all ages, of all times, saying: " We will soon show them Our Signs in the Universe and in their own selves until it becomes quite clear to them that it is the truth." Holy Qur'an 41:53.And so that Allah, Glory to Him, may prove to such people that the age of science they speak of is already referred to in the text of the Holy Qur'an in the form of many cosmic facts which He explains and the events of which He mentions requiring all generations till the Day of Judgement to uphold the commandments of the Holy Qur'an which He revealed to His servant and Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh). Allah, the Glorified One has said, "Aleef, Lam, Meem. This is the Book, there is no doubt in it, a guide for those who guard (themselves against evil). Holy Qur'an (2:1-2)

Miracles of the Holy Qur'an, then are incessant, never ending. Some such miracles have already taken place; others are happening as we speak, while still others will, if Almighty Allah (SWT) pleases, take place in each and every future generation.

What has been under-taken by the writing of the book entitled Miracles of the Holy Qur'an is the task to shed some light on such miracles whereby, the Holy Qur'an;an has proved to mankind that it is the most perfect of all divinely revealed books inspired by Almighty Allah (SWT) to His creation. With every statement in this book there is an ever recurring reference to the text of the Holy Qur'an in order to witness the fact that in each and every letter of the Holy Qur'an there is a miracle different in essence, norm and function from than that of the other miracle. Allah, the Exalted One, has said, "And We reveal of the Qur'an that which is healing and a mercy to the believers." Holy Qur'an (17:82) He has also said "What?! A foreign (tongue) and an Arabian? Say: It is to those who believe a guidance and a healing." Holy Qur'an (41:44)

We will always seek heaven in the guidance of the Prophets and Messengers of the early generations, as well, as of the last Prophet and Messenger, our master Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). While citing his sacred Qudsi traditions, as we traverse the sphere of the book entitled

Miracles of the Holy Qur'an,
If a traveller takes with him luggage, food and water, all that the reader needs in this regard is an absolute conviction in the testimony is that, "There is no god except Allah, that Muhammad (pbuh) is the Messenger of Allah, and in the Holy Qur'an which; Allah (SWT) inspired to His Servant and Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh)".

He will have in the end no choice except to submit to the Will of Almighty Allah (SWT), Who, whenever He decrees a thing, says to it "Be" and it is; and all Praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds. ***
Best Month, Best Night
