كِتَـٰبٌ أَنزَلْنَـٰهُ إِلَيْكَ مُبَـٰرَكٌۭ لِّيَدَّبَّرُوٓا۟ ءَايَـٰتِهِۦ وَلِيَتَذَكَّرَ أُو۟لُوا۟ ٱلْأَلْبَـٰبِ
“˹This is˺ a blessed Book which We have revealed to you ˹O Prophet˺ so that they may contemplate its verses, and people of the reason may be mindful.” 38:29
The most conventional answer is that the Quran is a book – but it is not like most books. It is made up of words which contain truth and guidance for every human being, and Muslims believe that these are words revealed directly by Allah, in the Arabic language, to the last of His prophets and messengers, Muhammad ﷺ (peace be upon him).
The Quran presents itself with several names and descriptions which are worth reflecting on. Here are just a few:
The Quran is the final revealed message which compliments and completes earlier revealed scriptures, just as the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ taught the same essential message as the many prophets before him, including Adam, Noah, Moses, Abraham, and Jesus (peace be upon them all). The Quran clarifies what humanity needs to know from now until the Day of Judgment, and it will remain preserved from loss and distortion which affected previous scriptures in various ways.
If the Qur’an is perfect and complete and contains everything needed for the laws and regulations of shari‘ah, what need is there for the Sunnah? In sha Allah we’ll share about Sunnah tomorrow.
