Characteristics of the Qur’an

September 18, 2008

Bismillah walhamdulillah.

I pray that we have all become close to this Qur’an during this month, Ameen.

I would like dedicate a post specifically to the qualities of the Qur’an, and I would like for readers to post characteristics of the Qur’an in the comments inshaAllah, and we’ll make a new post discussing each sifah (characteristic).

So, I will post first and say:

The Qur’an is A’dheem, which is mentioned in surah Hijr, ayah 87:

وَلَقَدْ آتَيْنَاكَ سَبْعًا مِنَ الْمَثَانِي وَالْقُرْآنَ الْعَظِيمَ

“And indeed, We have bestowed upon you the seven repeatedly recited Verses and the Grand Qur’an.

So inshaAllah in the next post, we will discuss how this Qur’an is A’dheem/Grand.

Dear reader, post another sifah of the Qur’an! Please include the ayat reference as well. Need help searching? Use this website:

Jazakum Allahu khayran. This makes it way more enjoyable so it’s not just the writers sharing, but we are all sharing 🙂

    As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmat Allah Amatullah!

    “I pray that we have all become close to this Qur’an during this month, Ameen”

    Allahumma Ameen!

    Hmm a few characteristics:

    المجيد (Surat Qaf–surah 50–ayah 1)

    الحكيم (Surat Yaa-seen–surah 36–ayah 2)

    ذَلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لاَ رَيْبَ فِيهِ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ (Suratul Baqarah–surah 2–ayah 2)

    The last one is not really a one-word characteristic, but I couldn’t bring myself to just restrict it to hudan 🙂 and Allah knows best!

    I’m not sure about this one, but:

    النُّورِ (Suratut-Taghaabun–Surah 64–ayah 8 )

    “رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ ” Suratul-Qasas (Surah 28), ayah 86.
