Characteristics of the Qur’an

Bismillah walhamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Alameen, was Salaatu was Salaatu ‘alaa Ashrafil Anbiyaa’i wal Mursaleen.

عن النواس بن سمعان رضي الله عنه قال‏:‏ سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول‏:‏
‏”‏يؤتى يوم القيامة بالقرآن وأهله الذين كانو يعملون به في الدنيا تقدمه سورة البقرة وآل عمران تحاجان عن صاحبهما ‏”‏
‏رواه مسلم‏

An-Nawwas bin Sam`an (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam saying, “The Qur’an and its people who applied it, will be brought on the Day of Resurrection preceded with Surat Al-Baqarah and Surat Al-`Imran arguing on behalf of their companions.” (Muslim)

May Allah ta’ala make us amongst the people of the Qur’an, Ameen.

This page is dedicated to studying and learning the Characteristics of the Qur’an. Just as we cannot love Allah, His Messenger or His deen without having knowledge of them, we also cannot love the Book of Allah or act upon it without knowing its qualities.

If anyone would like to suggest specific qualities, please do post a comment. Alhamdulillah we have a few suggestions already!

So far we have learned:

Qur’anic Characteristic #1: Al Hakeem

Qur’anic Characteristic #2: Qayyiman

Qur’anic Characteristic #3: Full of Dhikr

Qur’anic Characteristic #4: Mubaarak

Qur’anic Characteristic #5: Mubeen

Qur’anic Characteristic #6: Majeed

Qur’anic Characteristic #7: Kareem

Future characteristics will include, bi’ithnillah:

  • Noor/Muneer
  • Hudan
  • A’dheem
  • Maw’idhah
  • Fussilat
  • Rahmah
  • Ahsan al Hadeeth
  • Rooh
  • Shifaa’

Allahu ta’ala a’lam.
