Another speciality of Ramadaan

“The month of Ramadaan is the month in which the Quraan was revealed as guidance for mankind, and as clear signs that show the right way and distinguish between right and wrong.” (Surah Baqarah, v185)

Allah Ta’ala mentions another speciality of Ramadaan – the revelation of the Quraan Majeed. On the night of Qadr, the entire Quraan Majeed was revealed at once from the Lowhul Mahfooz (preserved tablet) to the sky above the earth.

 From here it was then gradually taken, through the order of Allah Ta’ala, by Jibreel (alaihis salaam) to Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) over a period of 23 years.

The Quraan Majeed has been described as guidance for mankind. The Quraan Majeed is sufficient for us. We need not borrow from the cultures of others. The Quraan Majeed distinguishes the truth from falsehood. There is no room for doubt and confusion. We need to hold onto the Quraan Majeed as our guide, as explained to us by Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).
