Putting plainly: The Holy Qur’an is God’s own message to his creation.
God, in there, is communicating directly with the best of His creation i.e. Us – “Humans”.
Let me begin: In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
[20:115] Exalted then is Allah (the-one-God), the True King!…
[32:3] The revelation of the Book — there is no doubt about it — is from the Lord of the worlds.
[35:32] And the Book which We have revealed to thee is the truth itself, fulfilling that which is before it. Surely, Allah is All-Aware, All-Seeing with respect to His servants.
[38:2] …By the Qur’an, full of exhortation, it is Our revealed word.
[38:30] This is a Book which We have revealed to thee, full of blessings, that they may reflect over its verses, and that those gifted with understanding may take heed.
In the Holy Qur’an, God directly addresses US and narrates, as reminder, the history of this planet detailing the ways of past prophets and their people;
He in a very clear manner relates stories of the truthful and the sinful, of the believers and the disbelievers, etc.
In his message He has very clearly specified certain things that are haraam (forbidden) and halaal (permissible).
[12:2-4] …These are verses of the clear Book. We have revealed it — the Qur’an in Arabic — that you may understand. We narrate unto thee the most beautiful narration by revealing to thee this Qur’an, though thou wast, before this, of those not possessed of requisite knowledge.
[4:27] Allah desires to make clear to you, and guide you to, the paths of those before you, and to turn to you in mercy. And Allah is All- Knowing, Wise.
[45:21] This Book contains clear evidences for mankind and is a guidance and a mercy for a people who possess firm faith. Qur’an is to supposed to steer believers on the right path;
to explain them the correct order of lives; it teaches ways to distinguish between the right and the wrong, and it define morals.
It elucidates how to judge between conflicts, details distribution of wealth amongst family members, describes sin – its reasons and punishment, details out the rewards for good deeds – the Gardens of Paradise, clearly elucidate the roles and responsibilities of ours as a child, parent, sibling, leader, king or whatever role that comes in the category of us humans.
Allah, the one-God, says in [20:100-102]:
Thus do We relate to thee the tidings of what has happened before. And We have given thee from Us a Reminder. Whoso turns away from it will surely bear a heavy burden on the Day of Resurrection, Abiding thereunder; and evil will the burden be to them on the Day of Resurrection,
[42:8] Thus have We revealed to thee the Qur’an …that thou mayest warn them of the Day of Gathering whereof there is no doubt: A party will be in the Garden, and a party in the blazing Fire.
Allah says about the Qur’an: If we had sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, thou wouldst certainly have seen it humbled and rent asunder for fear of Allah. (Ch.59:V.22)
[4:27-28] Allah desires to make clear to you, and guide you to, the paths of those before you, and to turn to you in mercy.
Based on the beauties, verities and unlimited treasures, the Holy Qur’an is a perennial miracle. The Holy Prophet (saw) once said:
‘Before me, every Prophet was given a miracle and I have been given the permanent miracle of the Qur’an till the Hour is established, so I hope that my followers will be more in number than all the other Messengers’ as my miracle will last till the Day of Resurrection, and it is a Glorious Book; when anyone reads it, even if he is a pagan, he is convinced that it is produced by none but by the Creator of the heavens and the earth.’ (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 1)
The Promised Messiah(as) has said:
‘The clear miracle of the Holy Qur’an which can manifest itself to every people and by presenting which we can silence every one, whether an Indian, or a Persian or a European or an American, is the unlimited treasury of insights and verities and wisdoms, which are expounded in every age according to its need and stand as armed soldiers to refute the thinking of every age. If the Holy Qur’an had been limited in its verities and insights it would not have amounted to a perfect miracle. Beauty of composition is not a matter the miraculous nature of which can be appreciated by every literate and illiterate person. The clear miracle of the Holy Qur’an is the unlimited insights and fine points which it comprises…Bear it in mind that the miracle of unlimited insights and verities which are contained in the Holy Qur’an has accomplished more in every age than has the sword.’ [Izalah-I-Auham; Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 3, pp.305-320]
Given all these wonderful names and special qualities of the Holy Qur’an and many others, Promised Messiah(as) wrote: ‘The Qur’an was sent down for the purpose of making the human race one flock and one nation. And now conditions have been created in which different peoples shall be united into one great nation…All this has been foretold in the Holy Qur’an which says that it has been sent to all the peoples of the world.’ (Chashma-i‑Ma’rifat, p.68)
Dr. Abdus Salam, the Ahmadi Muslim Nobel Laureate in Physics explained:
“Seven hundred and fifty verses of the Holy Qur’an – (almost one eighth of the Book) – exhort believers to study Nature, to reflect, to make the best use of reason in their search for the ultimate and to make the acquiring of knowledge and scientific comprehension part of the community’s life.”
Now, let us try reading… THE FINAL BOOK OF UNIVERSAL LAW:
أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم
Transliteration: A’udhu billahi minash shaitanir rajim Meaning: I seek refuge with Allah from Satan, the accursed.
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Transliteration: Bismillähir-rahmänir-rahïm Meaning: In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
[18:2, 3 & 4] All praise belongs to Allah Who has sent down the Book to His servant and has not put therein any crookedness. He has made it a guardian, that it may give warning of a grievous chastisement from Him, and that it may give the believers who do good deeds the glad tidings that they shall have a good reward, Wherein they shall abide for ever;
[18:55] And, surely, We have explained in various ways in this Qur’an, for the good of mankind, all kinds of similitudes, but of all things man is most contentious.
“If every ocean becomes ink for the words of my Lord, surely, the ocean would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even though We brought the like thereof as further help.’ (The Holy Quran 18:110)”

[26:3-9] These are verses of the clear Book [The Holy Qur’an] They have, indeed, treated it as a lie, but soon there will come to them the tidings of that at which they mocked. In that there is a Sign indeed; but most of these would not believe.
[17: 89-90] Say, `If men and jinn should gather together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like thereof, even though they should help one another.’ And surely We have set forth for mankind in various ways all kinds of similitudes in this Qur’an, but most men would reject everything in respect of it but disbelief.
[45:13-14] Allah it is Who has subjected the sea to you that ships may sail thereon by His command, and that you may seek of His bounty, and that you may be grateful. And He has subjected to you whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth: all this is from Him. In that surely are Signs for a people who reflect.
[46:13] And before it there was the Book of Moses, a guide and a mercy; and this is a Book in the Arabic language fulfilling previous prophecies, that it may warn those who do wrong; and as glad tidings to those who do good.
The Holy Qur’an is Al-Majid, the Glorious; Al-Karim, the Noble that grants man a dignified and honorable bearing; Al-Mubarak, the Blessed, that helps man to live a rich, full and abundantly blessed life.
[41:4-5] A Book, the verses of which have been expounded in detail — the Qur’an in clear, eloquent language — for a people who have knowledge, A bringer of glad tidings and a warner. But most of them turn away and they hear not.
Every eternal truth relating to Divine knowledge which is needed by man is been included in the Holy Qur’an. And, indeed, We have set forth for mankind all manner of parables in this Qur’an that they may take heed. (Ch.39:V.28)
39: 24. ALLAH has sent down the Best Discourse – a Book, whose verses are mutually supporting and repeated in diverse forms. The skins of those, who fear their Lord, do creep at its recital, then their skins and their hearts soften to the remembrance of ALLAH. Such is the guidance of ALLAH. HE guides therewith whom HE pleases. And he whom ALLAH adjudges astray – he shall have no guide.
[43:3-5] WE cite as evidence this perspicuous Book [The Holy Qur’an], WE have made it a Book to be oft read in clear, eloquent language that you may understand. And, surely, it is safe with US in the Mother of the Book, exalted and full of wisdom.
[2:3] This is a perfect Book; there is no doubt in it; it is a guidance for the righteous; [56:78] The Holy Qur’an contains every big and small information and guidelines on every matter that we might come across in our life or those which we need for our moral and spiritual advancement, including every beneficial, universal and eternal principle and precept from the earlier scriptures.
The Holy Qur’an fulfills the revelation of Moses (as) told ages ago: ‘a fiery law’ from Deuteronomy 33:2 | These are the Signs of Allah which We rehearse unto thee with truth. In what word, then, after rejecting the Word of Allah and His Signs, will they believe? (The Holy Quran, 45:7)
The Qur’an is the last divine scripture for mankind. It is the final revealed Book or the guidance of humanity, and is intended for all peoples of all times. Its laws are of universal and permanent character and they admit of no change or amendment. The Qur’an itself lays claim, in no ambiguous terms, to being the final and most perfect code of all revealed laws.
In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful. 2:3-4: This is a perfect Book; there is no doubt in it; it is a guidance for the righteous, who believe in the unseen and observe Prayer and spend out of what We have provided for them;
The Holy Qur’an is Al-Mutahharah, the Purified, and is the source to purify and cleanse man of the dross and dirt of sin and transgression. Al Dhikr, The Exposition; Al Tanzil, The Revelation; Al Hikmat, The Wisdom;
[14:2-3] Alif Lam Ra. This is a Book which We have revealed to thee that thou mayest bring mankind out of every kind of darkness into light, by the command of their Lord, to the path of the Mighty, the Praiseworthy — Allah, to Whom belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. And woe to the disbelievers for a terrible punishment.
[13:2] … These are verses of the Book. And that which has been revealed to thee from thy Lord is the truth, but most men believe not. [13:38] And thus have We revealed it as a clear judgment. [11:3] It teaches that you should worship none but Allah. I am to you a Warner, and a bearer of glad tidings from Him;
[42:53-54] And thus have We revealed to thee the Word by Our command. Thou didst not know what the Book was, nor what the faith. But We have made it (the revelation) a light, whereby We guide such of Our servants as We please. And truly, thou guidest mankind to the right path: The path of Allah, to Whom belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth. Behold! to Allah do all things return.
[32:3-4] The revelation of the Book — there is no doubt about it — is from the Lord of the worlds. Do they say, ‘He has forged it?’ Nay, it is the truth from thy Lord, that thou mayest warn a people to whom no Warner has come before thee, that haply they may follow guidance.
[18:28-29] And recite what has been revealed to thee of the Book of thy Lord. There is none who can change His words, and thou wilt find no refuge beside Him. And keep thyself attached to those who call on their Lord, morning and evening, seeking His pleasure; and let not thy eyes pass beyond them, seeking the adornment of the life of the world; and obey not him whose heart We have made heedless of Our remembrance and who follows his evil inclinations, and his case exceeds all bounds.
[17:10] Surely, this Qur’an guides to what is most right; and gives to the believers who do good deeds the glad tidings that they shall have a great reward. [21:51] And this is a blessed Reminder that We have sent down; will you then reject it?
[16:99] And when thou recitest the Qur’an, seek refuge with Allah from Satan the rejected. [6:100] Surely, he has no power over those who believe and who put their trust in their Lord. [16:101] His power is only over those who make friends with him and who set up equals to Him.
There is nothing on this earth more beautiful and glorious than the Holy Qur’an. It is an inexhaustible treasure which will continue to disclose more of its hidden beauties with each passing generation – no generation can exhaust its beauty. – The Promised Messiah
[6: 93] And this is a Book which WE have revealed, full of blessings, to fulfill that which preceded it, and to enable thee to warn the Mother of towns and those around her. And those, who believe in the Hereafter, believe therein and they strictly observe their Prayers.
Allah says: [50:46] We know best what they say; and thou hast not been appointed to compel them in any way. So admonish, by means of the Qur’an, him who fears My warning.
[42:16] To this, then, do thou invite mankind.
Allah says (in the Holy Qur’an, Aal-e-`Imran: 105), “And let there be among you a few who should invite (humanity) towards goodness.”… And who is better in speech than he who invites men to Allah and does good works and says, ‘I am surely of those who submit.’ [41:34]
And lets pray:
O Lord, accept this from me; for Thou art the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing;
