Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
وَلَا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ
(Qur’ān 06:34). ‘Wa la Mubaddila li Kalimati Allah’, ‘And none can alter the words of Allah.’ Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla says that no one can change the Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan, the words of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla Himself guards and protects it.
Many people who wanted to change it have come out after our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam. But Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla doesn’t give them a chance. His ﷻ word is Haqq (true). It is the true word of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla among people in this world. Other things apart from it have changed. Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan is the only thing that didn’t change. By the wisdom of Allah ﷻ it has to remain as benefit to humanity.
Tawrat, Injeel, Zabur, whatever there is; they’ve changed 99% of them. They are heavenly books of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla sent down to the Prophets. The wisdom is that their time is over. Step by step until the time of our Holy Prophet ﷺ, as he salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is the last Prophet, it is the last book. It contains all of them. It contains everything. BismiLlahi r-Rahmani r-Rahim: ‘وَلَا رَطْبٍ وَلَا يَابِسٍ إِلَّا فِي كِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ’, ‘Wa Lā Raţbin Wa Lā Yā Bisin ‘Illā Fī Kitābin Mubīnin’, ‘And no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.’ (Qur’ān 06:59). Nothing is outside of it.
We hold it in our hands as a great blessing. It is a blessing from all aspects. Reading and listening to each letter of it is of virtue, Barakah and Thawab. For each letter, Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is writing down ranks and Thawab to the Muslims and Mu’mins who read it. Therefore, it is a great blessing to be in Islam, to live in Islam and to understand Islam. People who believe in others’ words and show disrespect obey their weak egos. They are at loss.
It is something amazing. As the only true book of Allah ﷻ and true words of Allah ﷻ among people, we can hold it in our hands. We are reading it with our mouths. We are listening to it. It is a great blessing. We are together with Allah ﷻ then. We are together with Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.
It is a beautiful blessing. We must know its value. Shukr to Allah ﷻ, Muslims and Mu’mins know it. But there are many people who don’t know. There are many people who reach guidance through it. And there are people without Iman, non-Muslim people who joined Islam through it, through its Barakah. There are millions of such people. May Allah ﷻ not decrease its Barakah upon us. May it be in our hearts insha’Allah. May He ﷻ not let us forget what we know insha’Allah.
Oftentimes children are brought up as Hafiz. Bringing up a Hafiz is easy. But it is difficult to keep it inside. We must pay attention to that as well. If someone is Hojja, he teaches children. But parents must take care of the rest and say, “You have learnt this. Read 2-3 Juz a day so that you don’t forget”. Or they should learn as much as they won’t forget. May Allah ﷻ protect us insha’Allah, because it is punishable to forget it.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
