There is no doubt or suspicion whatsoever about this Divine Book of Allah which was revealed to Prophet Muhammad, the Last of all messengers and prophets sent by Allah the Almighty to guide humanity to the Straight Path; the chain of prophets and messengers started with Prophet Adam, father of all mankind and ended with Prophet Muhammad as is well-known by many. The Qur’an, the accuracy of which was attested to by many throughout the ages, is a book of guidance that aims to guide all humanity to what benefits them in this present life as well as the hereafter.
This aside, the Qur’an has many miraculous attributes, certifying that it is the revelation of God. A number of scientific discoveries, that could only be attained in the 20th and 21st centuries, were declared in the Qur’an 1400 years ago. This information, that was impossible to verify scientifically at the time of the Qur’an’s revelation, has proved once again that it is the word of God.
The Qur’an rhetorically asks the question: “Did the universe come out of nothing?” The answer seems quite obvious due to the metaphysical and undeniable logic that whatever begins to exist has a cause, and since the universe began to exist, therefore it must have a cause. It would be irrational to posit more than one cause for the universe, as an infinite regress of causes is impossible.
How does one acquire knowledge of and belief in God, His Attributes, His Law and the Day of Judgment?
When we believe in God, we are responding to our nature, and because it is in harmony with our nature, the existence or absence of faith must have a marked effect on a person’s life.
