What are the contents of the Holy Qur’an?
Quran is the holy book. It is Allah’s words. Every Muslim should memorize Quran and recite it daily. All Muslim families seek to make their kids memorize Quran and get used to recite it and listen to it every day, so they need ways to make them love Quran and recite it daily. As Allah Says: ‘and Recite Qur’an with tarteel’.
Allah revealed The Holy Qur’an to be our friend every day, it is an interesting book because it is full of many stories, useful so has much advice and many laws restrictions in it. Qur’an tells us how to do everything and how to deal with everything, so this is the meaning of the holy Qur’an generally.
The first verse in Qur’an that Allah says is: Read (commencing) with the Name of Allah, Who has created (everything). He created man from a hanging mass (clinging) like a leech (in the mother’s womb). Read and your Lord is Most Generous, Who taught man (reading and writing) by the pen, Who (besides that) taught man (all that) which he did not know.
Qur’an has many themes and contents.
These are the themes of the Holy Qur’an:
- The first theme is Allah Himself, “the mighty, the wise, inspire thee and those before thee “(42:1).
Allah is our creator, and the Holy Qur’an is His book and His words.
Qur’an tightens the relationship between Allah and us, as His servants,
“God is kind to His servants; He provides whom He will, and He is the mighty, the glorious” (The Quran 42:18).
‘God created both heaven and others, and as a result, he is above all his creations. God also created day and night and gave man the power and will to differentiate good from evil’ (The Quran 21: 34).
- The second theme states that God has given man free will and choice. According to Qur’an, Allah watches us and guides us to the right path and we can choose, and if we even mischose, Allah forgives us if we show repentance.
“answers the prayer of those who believe and do right, and gives them increase of His grace; but the misbelievers, – for them is keen torment” (The Quran 42: 25).
- The third theme is the prophets.
The Holy Qur’an talks a lot about the lives of the prophets and how they live, act and spread the message of Allah that he sent them to do.
Allah says: ”The prophets reside besides God, and they are found on earth and in heaven (The Quran 21:22). An excellent example of the prophets is Muhammad. Another proclaimed prophet was Abraham (The Quran 19:42).
- The fourth theme is is sin or evil. God gave man free will and the choice to differentiate evil from good. Because of their sin, men will be dragged into hell and brought on their knees (19:70).
The Quran warns the man to be on guard of the Iblis since he is always on the trail of the man.
We must keep on the right path that Allah shows us in His book, and if we got misguided, we shall return to Him as soon as possible, He is Al Ghaffar, forgives.
- This theme states that The Holy Qur’an contains Divine scriptures. These scriptures help us and guide us and make us closed to Allah. They boost our relationship with the religion. They prevent us from sinning. The divine scriptures act as a guide to man, thereby aiding him to operate following the will of God. God’s mercy and the work of the prophets are proclaimed through divine scriptures.
The Holy Quran is divided into 114 Surahs or Chapters and each Chapter consists of individual Ayaat or verses. There are in total 6,348 verses in the Holy Quran. The Surahs are of varying lengths, some consisting of a few lines while others run for many pages. Surah al Baqarah (Ch.2) is the longest Chapter comprising 287 verses while Surah al Kauthar (Ch. 108) is the shortest with only four verses including the tasmia.
The Quran was divided into 30 para or Juz at the time of its compilation. The main purpose of dividing the Surahs of Quran in Juz or Para is to make it easy for people to memorize and read the Quran easily. The Juz is further divided into Hizb which is half of the length of Juz or para and there are 60 Hizb in Quran. The number of verses in each Juz is different.
Finally, this is the Holy Qur’an, And because the holy Qur’an is Allah’s book, so we need to understand what is the meaning of the holy Quran. It is scripture, sacred scripture. Allah sends the holy Qur’an to us by our prophet and our messenger Muhammad. It Contains everything about all of our life and the life of past people in all worlds that have been mentioned in the Qur’an.
Learning Quran is very important for all Muslims, it is required. It teaches lessons and behaves us. Now, with technology, it is getting more attractive to learn it on phones, tablets, and video stories. Now people get closed to learn more at home and have a good social relationship to support the process of learning online. So, it’s time to change this reality. Quran is to be a daily routine as it should be. Parents, in particular, should make use of technology in favor of their children.
