Why read the Quran?
The Quran is a timeless guide for life, death and the hereafter.
In the modern era, many people are polarized between religion and a “rational” belief in science, holding the two to be incompatible with each other. However The Quran is different because modern science does not contradict The Quran, but rather approves it’s contents. The Quran’s texts have proven to be amazingly accurate over time, in light of scientific discoveries that were made the last centuries.
One of the most remarkable aspects about The Quran is that it contains many verses which accurately describe natural phenomenon in various fields such as embryology, meteorology, astronomy, geology, and oceanography. Scientists have found its descriptions incredibly accurate in a book dating back to the 7th century.
“We will show them Our Signs in the Universe and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (The Quran) is the Truth.”
The Quran ever since its revelation, open challenged the whole mankind to produce a single chapter like that in its beauty, eloquence, splendour, wisdom, prophecies, and other perfect attributes.
“And if you (Arab pagans, Jews and Christians) are in doubt concerning that which We have sent down (The Quran) to Our servant (Prophet Muhammad), then bring a Surah (chapter) of the like thereof and call your witnesses (supporters and helpers) besides Allah, if you are truthful.”
The people who rejected Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) failed this challenge, even though they were extremely eloquent in the language of The Quran. This challenge remains unanswered to this very day.
