The Importance of the Qur'an and Muhammad to Islam

Islam is for the entire mankind and to say “The Qur’an is just and
ordinary book and Muhammad (PBUH) is just an ordinary man”. Would be a
great slander against this religion. To prove my point that the Qur’an
is not just an ordinary book I have the following points:

The Qur’an cannot be an ordinary book because millions and millions of
people in the world read it. Even when a Muslim has a problem, the
first thing that they turn to is the Qur’an, because basically the
Qur’an has a solution for every problem that faces a human in a
lifetime. There is also no other book in the world that has the

If Allah made it for guidance then
don’t you think that’s why many people are being guided towards the
straight path. If it is for any religion or race, then why are so many
people becoming Muslims? It’s because they have probably read the
Qur’an and understood its language and so that person knows Islam is
the right religion, so they become a Muslim.

The Qur’an is also not just a book because it is a miracle, which
benefits people from the day it was revealed to the day of judgement.
It benefits the person by telling them what is wrong and what is right
and it also reminds people that one day this world is going to end. It
is also a warning to the people of the world that you will be
questioned at the time of death and there will be a life after death.
There is a saying in the Qur’an, which goes “Do not live, as if you
are going to live forever”. This indicates that he who lives life like
he is never going to die will have the time of his life in this world.
He will have a very severe punishment after death and it will be
nothing like how he was living life in the world. And he, who lives
life-fearing Allah, will have the best life ever after death. A life
that no human mind can ever imagine. If these are just some of the
virtues of the Qur’an then do you really still think that it is just
an ordinary book? Is any normal book that you pick up at your local
library the same as the Qur’an? This is impossible, as the Qur’an is
unique in its own kind, and it was sent down to earth as a token of
Allah’s kindness and gratitude, to help all the good people in the
world. All of the people in the world who deserve to go to a better
place, with Allah’s help, they will end up where they want to end up.

The Qur’an is also a miracle because it was revealed to an unlettered
prophet; therefore the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) can never be the source
of the Qur’an. This also means that the Qur’an must have to be special
if it was revealed to such an incredible person, person being Muhammad
(PBUH). So if the Qur’an wasn’t very special then it could have been
sent down to any normal person like you and me. But obviously not, as
it is very valuable and precious to the Muslims.

The Qur’an cannot be an ordinary book because no scientific or
biologic advance in science contradicts the Qur’an. (i.e.) 1400 years
ago we were told that the sea was exactly half salty and half fresh
water, and that they never mix or collide into each other. We were
also told about the creation of the universe, we were told how a baby
grows and scientists and biologists are just revealing all of these
things today. The Qur’an discovered this 1400 years ago and if the
scientists referred to the Qur’an some time ago, then they would have
found out ages ago. So even other things are written down in the
Qur’an, which...
