Muslims believe that the Quran was verbally revealed by God to Muhammad (Pbuh) through the angel Gabriel and Muslims regard the Quran as the most important miracle of Muhammad, a proof of his prophet hood and of him being the messenger of Allah. In the Quran it is confirm the Book is described in detail and everything concerning worshipping and salvation is clearly written in the Quran. Nothing has been left out as it is mentioned in Surah 6:38 There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth, nor a being that flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you. Nothing have we omitted from the Book, and they (all) shall be gathered to their Lord in the end. The Book is in detail as stated in Surah 7:52 For We had certainly sent unto them a Book, based on knowledge, which We explained in detail, a guide and a mercy to all who believe. Further Muslims were being commanded to judge with it as stated in Surah 6:114 Say: “Shall I seek for judge other than Allah? – when He it is Who hath sent unto you the Book, explained in detail.” They know full well, to whom We have given the Book, that it hath been sent down from thy Lord in truth. Never be then of those who doubt.
There are numerous verses in the Quran to obey Allah and to obey the Messenger and this is because the Messenger is following Allah’s words and none of his own composition as stated in Surah 53:2-5 Your Companion is neither astray nor being misled. Nor does he say (aught) of (his own) Desire. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him: He was taught by one Mighty in Power. And in Surah 7:158 Say: “O men! I am sent unto you all, as the Messenger of Allah, to Whom belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth: there is no god but He: it is He That give both life and death. So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, who believeth in Allah and His words: follow him that (so) ye may be guided.”
The Prophet received his divine messages only through inspired revelation which is commanded by Allah which he obeyed as stated:-
>>>>>Surah 6:106 – Follow what thou art taught by inspiration from thy Lord: there is no god but He: and turn aside from those who join gods with Allah.
>>>>>Surah 6:50 – Say: “I tell you not that with me are the treasures of Allah, nor do I know what is hidden, nor do I tell you I am an angel. I but follow what is revealed to me.” Say: “can the blind be held equal to the seeing?” Will ye then consider not?
>>>>>7:203 – If thou bring them not a revelation, they say: “Why hast thou not got it together?” Say: “I but follow what is revealed to me from my Lord: this is (nothing but) lights from your Lord, and Guidance, and mercy, for any who have faith.”
>>>>>Surah 10:15 – But when Our Clear Signs are rehearsed unto them, those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us, Say: “Bring us a reading (Quran) other than this, or change this,” Say: “It is not for me, of my own accord, to change it: I follow naught but what is revealed unto me: if I were to disobey my Lord, I should myself fear the penalty of a Great Day (to come).”
>>>>>Surah 10:109 – Follow thou the inspiration sent unto thee, and be patient and constant, till Allah do decide: for He is the best to decide.
>>>>>Surah 33:2 – But follow that which comes to thee by inspiration from thy Lord: for Allah is well acquainted with (all) that ye do.
>>>>>Surah 46:9 – Say: “I am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine among the messengers, nor do I know what will be done with me or with you. I follow but that which is revealed to me by inspiration; I am but a Warner open and clear.”
The Prophet (Pbuh) is commanded to be a warner and a giver of glad tidings of whatever is stated in the Quran and he is not to add or to remove any part of the Quran as stated in Surah 69:40 – 52 That this is verily the word of an honored apostle; It is not the word of a poet: little it is ye believe! Nor is it the word of a soothsayer: little admonition it is ye receive. (This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the Worlds.
And if the apostle were to invent any sayings in Our name, We should certainly seize him by his right hand, And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart: Nor could any of you withhold him (from Our wrath). But verily this is a Message for the Allah-fearing. And We certainly know that there are among you those that reject (it). But truly (Revelation) is a cause of sorrow for the Unbelievers. But verily it is Truth of assured certainty. So glorify the name of thy Lord Most High.
Thus this is the Prophet (Pbuh) mission on earth:-
>>>>>Surah 6:19 Say: “What thing is most weighty in evidence?” Say: “Allah is witness between me and you; This Qur’an hath been revealed to me by inspiration, that I may warn you and all whom it reaches. Can ye possibly bear witness that besides Allah there is another god?” Say: “Nay! I cannot bear witness!” Say: “But in truth He is the one Allah, and I truly am innocent of (your blasphemy of) joining others with Him.”
>>>>>Surah 27:91-92 For me, I have been commanded to serve the Lord of this city, Him Who has sanctified it and to Whom (belong) all things: and I am commanded to be of those who bow in Islam to Allah’s Will, and to rehearse the Qur’an: and if any accept guidance, they do it for the good of their own souls, and if any stray, say: “I am only a Warner”.
>>>>>Surah 41:2-4 A Revelation from (Allah), Most Gracious, Most Merciful; A Book, whereof the verses are explained in detail;- a Qur’an in Arabic, for people who understand; Giving good news and admonition: yet most of them turn away, and so they hear not.
>>>>>Surah 46:12 And before this, was the Book of Moses as a guide and a mercy: And this Book confirms (it) in the Arabic tongue; to admonish the unjust, and as Glad Tidings to those who do right.
>>>>>Surah 50:45 We know best what they say; and thou art not one to overawe them by force. So admonish with the Qur’an such as fear My Warning!
Although human beings are capable of acting rational, most of the time their behavior is driven by emotional, spontaneous, in haste and unconscious motives. This is where believing and relying on God’s Word will shed incredible light on just about any issue. Allah has promised with His Words since the days of Adam and any who trust in His words and follow His guidance He will gives them the grace to make the right decisions and show good judgment and in justice. His promised since the days when Adam was forced out of the garden is as stated in Surah 2:38-39 We said: “Get ye down all from here; and if, as is sure, there comes to you Guidance from me, whosoever follows My guidance, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. “But those who reject Faith and belie Our Signs, they shall be companions of the Fire; they shall abide therein.” Therefore in the Day of Judgment He will recount whether we fulfill His directive by following the examples of the Messenger who received the same guidance and warning how one is to make a judgment in this life:-
>>>>>Surah 4:105 We have sent down to thee the Book in truth, that thou might judge between men, as guided by Allah: so be not (used) as an advocate by those who betray their trust.
>>>>>Surah 5:48 To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding (Mohaiminan) it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute.
>>>>>Surah 6:153-155 Verily, this is My way, leading straight: follow it: follow not (other) paths: they will scatter you about from His (great) path: thus doth He command you that ye may be righteous. Moreover, We gave Moses the Book, completing (Our favor) to those who would do right, and explaining all things in detail, and a guide and a mercy, that they might believe in the meeting with their Lord. And this is a Book which We have revealed as a blessing: so follow it and be righteous, that ye may receive mercy:
>>>>>Surah 10:35 Say: “Of your ‘partners’ is there any that can give any guidance towards truth?” Say: “It is Allah Who gives guidance towards truth, is then He Who gives guidance to truth more worthy to be followed, or he who finds not guidance (himself) unless he is guided? What then is the matter with you? How do you judge?”
>>>>>Surah 68:35-40 Shall We then treat the People of Faith like the People of Sin? What is the matter with you? How judge ye? Or have ye a book through which ye learn- That ye shall have, through it whatever ye choose? Or have ye Covenants with Us to oath, reaching to the Day of Judgment, (providing) that ye shall have whatever ye shall demand? Ask thou of them, which of them will stand surety for that!
The Quran is therefore enough as guidance and one should be contented by referring to its wisdom whenever there is a decision to be made as it is sent down in details and there is no necessity to have other books to supplement its rich content:-
>>>>>Surah 6:114 Say: “Shall I seek for judge other than Allah? – when He it is Who hath sent unto you the Book, explained in detail.” They know full well, to whom We have given the Book, that it hath been sent down from thy Lord in truth. Never be then of those who doubt.
>>>>>Surah 11:1 A. L. R. (This is) a Book, with verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning), further explained in detail, from One Who is Wise and Well-acquainted (with all things):
>>>>>Surah 16:89 One day We shall raise from all Peoples a witness against them, from amongst themselves: and We shall bring thee (O Muhammad) as a witness against these (thy people): and We have sent down to thee the Book explaining all things, a Guide, a Mercy, and Glad Tidings to Muslims.
>>>>>Surah 36:69-70 We have not instructed the (Prophet) in Poetry, nor is it meet for him: this is no less than a Message and a Qur’an making things clear: That it may give admonition to any (who are) alive, and that the charge may be proved against those who reject (Truth).
>>>>>Surah 45:2 The revelation of the Book is from Allah the Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom.
Nevertheless for those refusing to believe in the Quran or deny the truth of its justice and wisdom without knowledge they should ponder first theses verses at Surah 4:82 Do they not consider the Qur’an (with care)? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much discrepancy. At Surah 10:37 This Qur’an is not such as can be produced by other than Allah; on the contrary it is a confirmation of (revelations) that went before it, and a fuller explanation of the Book – wherein there is no doubt – from the Lord of the worlds. And a challenge from Allah at Surah 17:88-89 Say: “If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they backed up each other with help and support. And We have explained to man, in this Qur’an, every kind of similitude: yet the greater part of men refuse (to receive it) except with ingratitude!
Thus it is essential for those who believe to take guidance and judgment only from the Quran in order to avoid theses consequences as stated:-
>>>>>Surah 5:48-49 To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way, If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute. And this (He commands): Judge thou between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they beguile thee from any of that (teaching) which Allah hath sent down to thee. And if they turn away, be assured that for some of their crime it is Allah’s purpose to punish them. And truly most men are rebellious.
>>>>>Surah 2:2-5 This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah. Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them; And who believe in the Revelation sent to thee, and sent before thy time, and (in their hearts) have the assurance of the Hereafter. They are on (true) guidance, from their Lord, and it is these who will prosper.
>>>>>Surah 4:174 O mankind! Verily there hath come to you a convincing proof from your Lord: For We have sent unto you a light (that is) manifest.
In summary it is stated in Surah 10:57 O mankind! There hath come to you a direction from your Lord and a healing for the (diseases) in your hearts, and for those who believed is a guidance and a Mercy. And in Surah 13:37-38 Thus have We revealed it to be a judgment of authority in Arabic. Wert thou to follow their (vain) desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither protector nor defender against Allah. We did send apostles before thee, and appointed for them wives and children: and it was never the part of an apostle to bring a sign except as Allah permitted (or commanded). For each period is a Book (revealed). And finally in Surah 39:41 Verily, We have revealed the Book to thee in Truth, for (instructing) mankind. He, then, that receives guidance benefits his own soul: but he that strays injures his own soul. Nor art thou set over them to dispose of their affairs.
