In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Some Attributes of Quran

The following is an attempt to list what is spelled out by God almighty about His infallible Truth - a heart reassurance and a reminder for those who reverence Him alone:

- The Quran is Sijjeen and Elleyyeen; a numerically-structured book. Its built-in mathematical composition is extremely intricate, beyond any human powers. It only leads to one logical conclusion - divine authorship:

Numerically Structured Books [83:7-9] Indeed, the book of the wicked is in Sijjeen. Do you know what Sijjeen is? A numerically structured book.

[83:18-21] Indeed, the book of the righteous will be in `Elleyyeen. Do you know what `Elleyyeen is? A numerically structured book.To be witnessed by those close to Me.

The Quran's Common Denominator [74:30] Over it is nineteen.*

[74:32-37] Absolutely, (I swear) by the moon. And the night as it passes. And the morning as it shines. This is one of the great miracles.* A warning to the human race. For those among you who wish to advance, or regress.

- Quran is a beacon, to guide and warn. Many verses state this attribute:

[2:2] This scripture is infallible; a beacon for the righteous;

[16:102] Say, "The Holy Spirit has brought it down from your Lord, truthfully, to assure those who believe, and to provide a beacon and good news for the submitters."

[27:1] T. S.* These (letters) constitute proofs of the Quran; a profound scripture.
[27:2] A beacon, and good news, for the believers.

- The Quran is a reminder for the world (Thikrun):

[38:87] "This is a reminder for the world.

[38:49] This is a reminder: the righteous have deserved a wonderful destiny.

- The Quran is also a “blessed reminder” (thikrun Mubarakun) and a "blessed scripture" (Ketbun Mubarakun):

[21:50] This too is a blessed reminder that we sent down. Are you denying it?

[6:155] This too is a blessed scripture that we have revealed; you shall follow it and lead a righteous life, that you may attain mercy.

- The Quran is Glorious (Majeed), an attribute of God:

[50:1] Q., and the glorious Quran.*

[85:21] Indeed, it is a glorious Quran.

- Quran is an honorable, (Kareem), scripture, an attribute of God:

[56:77] This is an honorable Quran.

- The Quran is protected (Maknoon):

[56:77] This is an honorable Quran.
[56:78] In a protected book.

- The Quran is exalted and pure (Marfuaten, Mukarramah):

[80:11] Indeed, this is a reminder.
[80:12] Whoever wills shall take heed.
[80:13] In honorable scriptures.
[80:14] Exalted and pure.

- The Quran is preserved in master tablets (Fi lawhen mahfooth):

[85:21] Indeed, it is a glorious Quran.
[85:22] In a preserved master tablet.

- Quran is our savior, and it has all we need for salvation:

[6:153] This is My path - a straight one. You shall follow it, and do not follow any other paths, lest they divert you from His path. These are His commandments to you, that you may be saved.

[20:113] We thus revealed it, an Arabic Quran, and we cited in it all kinds of prophecies, that they may be saved, or it may cause them to take heed.

[6:51] And preach with this (Quran) to those who reverence the summoning before their Lord - they have none beside Him as a Lord and Master, nor an intercessor - that they may attain salvation.

Quran: Our Means to Salvation [17:9] This Quran guides to the best path, and brings good news to the believers who lead a righteous life, that they have deserved a great recompense.

-God calls His book complete, infallible, perfect, flawless, and fully detailed :

[6:115] The word of your Lord is complete, in truth and justice. Nothing shall abrogate His words. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.

Only God Can Author the Quran [10:37] This Quran could not possibly be authored by other than GOD. It confirms all previous messages, and provides a fully detailed scripture. It is infallible, for it comes from the Lord of the universe.

[41:3] A scripture whose verses provide the complete details, in an Arabic Quran, for people who know.

[18:1] Praise GOD, who revealed to His servant this scripture, and made it flawless.
[18:2] A perfect (scripture) to warn of severe retribution from Him, and to deliver good news to the believers who lead a righteous life, that they have earned a generous recompense.

-God informs us that His book has no ambiguity or contradictions. He states that Quran is a consistent source of knowledge:

[39:28] An Arabic Quran, without any ambiguity, that they may be righteous.

Proof of Divine Authorship [4:82] Why do they not study the Quran carefully? If it were from other than GOD, they would have found in it numerous contradictions.*

[39:29] GOD cites the example of a man who deals with disputing partners (Hadith), compared to a man who deals with only one consistent source (Quran). Are they the same? Praise be to GOD; most of them do not know.

- God repeats for us that the Quran is easy to learn:

[54:17, 22, 32, 40 ] We made the Quran easy to learn. Does any of you wish to learn?

- Quran is God's Hadith and it is the best Hadith (Ahsana Al-Hadith):

Which Hadith?* [45:6] These are GOD's revelations that we recite to you truthfully. In which Hadith other than GOD and His revelations do they believe?

The Best Hadith [39:23] GOD has revealed herein the best Hadith; a book that is consistent, and points out both ways (to Heaven and Hell). The skins of those who reverence their Lord cringe therefrom, then their skins and their hearts soften up for GOD's message. Such is GOD's guidance; He bestows it upon whoever wills (to be guided). As for those sent astray by GOD, nothing can guide them.

- Quran is also called Al-Furqan; the book of law, the Statute Book:

[25:1] Most blessed is the One who revealed the Statute Book to His servant, so he can serve as a warner to the whole world.

[2:185] Ramadan is the month during which the Quran was revealed, providing guidance for the people, clear teachings, and the statute book.....

[3:3] He sent down to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming all previous scriptures, and He sent down the Torah and the Gospel
[3:4] before that, to guide the people, and He sent down the statute book. Those who disbelieve in GOD's revelations incur severe retribution. GOD is Almighty, Avenger.

- God describes His book as the only source of law for those who have attained certainty:

Quran: Fully Detailed* [6:114] Shall I seek other than GOD as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed?* Those who received the scripture recognize that it has been revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor any doubt.

[5:50] Is it the law of the days of ignorance that they seek to uphold? Whose law is better than GOD's for those who have attained certainty.

-God calls the Quran enlightenment, healing, guidance and mercy (Mawethatun, Shifaun, Hudan, Rhamatun):

[10:57] O people, enlightenment has come to you herein from your Lord, and healing for anything that troubles your hearts, and guidance, and mercy for the believers.

- At the same time, it misleads those who choose to ignore its guidance:

[17:41] We have cited in this Quran (all kinds of examples), that they may take heed. But it only augments their aversion.

Healing and Mercy [17:82] We send down in the Quran healing and mercy for the believers. At the same time, it only increases the wickedness of the transgressors.

Quran: The ONLY Source [17:46] We place shields around their minds, to prevent them from understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you preach your Lord, using the Quran alone,* they run away in aversion.

-The Quran is a book of wisdom (Al Quranu Al Hakeem, or Thikrun Hakeem):

[36:1] Y. S.
[36:2] And the Quran that is full of wisdom.

[10:1] A.L.R.* These (letters) are the proofs of this book of wisdom.

[3:58] These are the revelations that we recite to you, providing a message full of wisdom.

- The Quran narrates the most accurate history:

[12:3] We narrate to you the most accurate history through the revelation of this Quran. Before this, you were totally unaware.

- The Quran is a book that sets all kinds of examples:

Quran: No Ambiguity [39:27] We have cited for the people every kind of example in this Quran, that they may take heed.

[17:89] We have cited for the people in this Quran all kinds of examples, but most people insist upon disbelieving.

-The Quran is already placed in the hearts of true believers regardless of the mother-tongue:

Language is Irrelevant [41:44] If we made it a non-Arabic Quran they would have said, "Why did it come down in that language?" Whether it is Arabic or non-Arabic, say, "For those who believe, it is a guide and healing. As for those who disbelieve, they will be deaf and blind to it, as if they are being addressed from faraway."

- The Quran confirms, consummates and supersedes all previous scriptures:

Quran: The Ultimate Reference [5:48] Then we revealed to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming previous scriptures, and superseding them. You shall rule among them in accordance with GOD's revelations, and do not follow their wishes if they differ from the truth that came to you. For each of you, we have decreed laws and different rites. Had GOD willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To GOD is your final destiny - all of you - then He will inform you of everything you had disputed.

The Quran Consummates All Scriptures [2:89] When this scripture came to them from GOD, and even though it agrees with, and confirms what they have, and even though they used to prophesy its advent when they talked with the disbelievers, when their own prophecy came to pass, they disbelieved therein. GOD's condemnation thus afflicts the disbelievers.

- The Quran is labeled the truth (Al-Haq) by God:

[6:73] He is the One who created the heavens and the earth, truthfully. Whenever He says, "Be," it is. His word is the absolute truth. All sovereignty belongs to Him the day the horn is blown. Knower of all secrets and declarations, He is the Most Wise, the Cognizant.

[3:62] Absolutely, this is the narration of the truth. Absolutely, there is no god except GOD. Absolutely, GOD is the Almighty, Most Wise.

[2:147] This is the truth from your Lord; do not harbor any doubt.

- The essence of the Quran (Ummul Ketab) is STRAIGHTFORWARD:

[3:7] He sent down to you this scripture, containing straightforward verses - which constitute the essence of the scripture - as well as multiple-meaning or allegorical verses. Those who harbor doubts in their hearts will pursue the multiple-meaning verses to create confusion, and to extricate a certain meaning. None knows the true meaning thereof except GOD and those well founded in knowledge. They say, "We believe in this - all of it comes from our Lord." Only those who possess intelligence will take heed.

- The Quran is God's messenger, a warner, and a bearer of good news:

[65:10] GOD has prepared for them severe retribution. Therefore, you shall reverence GOD, O you who possess intelligence and believed. GOD has sent down to you a message -
[65:11] a messenger* who recites to you GOD's revelations, clearly, to lead those who believe and work righteousness out of the darkness into the light. Anyone who believes in GOD and leads a righteous life, He will admit him into gardens with flowing streams; they abide therein forever. GOD will generously reward him. *65:10-11 The ``Messenger'' here is clearly the Quran. Verse 10 talks about ``sending down a message,'' and this points to the Quran as the messenger in 65:11 (Appendix 20).

[11:1] A.L.R. This is a scripture whose verses have been perfected, then elucidated.* It comes from a Most Wise, Most Cognizant.
The Quran: Messenger of God [11:2] Proclaiming: "You shall not worship except GOD. I come to you from Him as a warner, as well as a bearer of good news.
