Key Facts & Information
THE BASICS OF QURAN
- Quran is an Arabic word, meaning “recitation” and “reading.” It is recited orally and, at the same time, written in a book.
- The power of the Quran lies in the oral recitation, since it is read in a loud and melodious manner. The verses were written down to help readers memorize it, and it was collected and organized into a book.
- The Quran does not tell narratives in sequence, unlike the book of Genesis that tells the story of Creation. Verses in the Quran focus on the single message that Allah is the only true god, and Muhammad is His messenger.
- Unlike the Bible, the Quran does not focus on genealogies, and chronological or historical events. Rather, it uses these events to convey the message of Oneness with Allah.
- For over a span of 23 years, the Quran was revealed in different parts. In fact, many verses or passages were meant to respond to certain events. The Angel Gabriel would often reveal these to Prophet Muhammad as a response to those who did not believe in this message. The Prophet was commanded on what to do when faced with rejections by nonbelievers.
- People will understand the underlying message of the texts in the Quran, considering the social and historical contexts of it.
- The Quran has 114 parts or chapters of unequal length. In Arabic, each chapter of the Quran is called a surah, while the sentences or phrases are called ayah, which means ‘a sign.’ The Quran is divided into ‘verses’ or discrete units.
- As mentioned, the Quran’s parts or chapters are not equal in terms of length. The beginning and the end of these verses are decided upon by God. With this, first century scholars after the death of the Prophet Muhammad have divided the Quran into thirty (30) parts. The reason for this is to enable people to memorize or read it in an organized manner.
- During Ramadan, one part is recited every night, and the whole Quran is completed by the end of the month of fasting.
QURAN’S STYLE, THEMES, AND TOPICS
- The main theme of the Quran focuses on the important message that there is only one God, Allah, and how to live a life according to His will.
- Other topics include religious doctrine, creation, criminal and civil law, Judaism, Christianity and polytheism, social values, morality, history, stories of past prophets, and science (Mufti, 2017).
- In discussing these topics and themes, the Quran uses the following styles:
- The use of parables to engage the readers to look into ‘deeper truths’ embedded in these verses.
- Passages in the Quran usually begin with the Arabic word, Qul which means ‘Say.’ This is used for the Prophet Muhammad to reply when there is a question, to explain a matter of faith, or to announce legal rulings. For instance: “Say: ‘O People of the Scripture! Do you disapprove of us for no other reason than that we believe in Allah, and the revelation that has come to us and that which came before (us), and because most of you are rebellious and disobedient?’” (Quran 2:59)
- To make a strong point, or to dispel doubts among the followers and non-believers, Allah uses these words in some of the passages in the Quran:“By the sun and its brightness,
By the moon when it follows it,
By the day when it displays it,
By the night when it covers it,
By the sky and He who constructed it,
By the earth and He who spread it,
By the soul and He who proportioned it…” (Quran 91:1-7) (cited in Mufti, 2017).
- The Quran has also “disjointed letters” of the Arabic alphabet that possess unknown meaning in the Arabic lexicon. This was intended by Allah to challenge the Arabs to “bring forth something to the Quran” (Mufti, 2017).
HOW ONE SHOULD APPROACH THE QURAN (MUFTI, 2017)
