The Holy Prophet (PBUH) is the last messenger of Allah Almighty. A messenger is a person who transmits the messages of Allah to the people. There were 313 messengers to whom Allah has revealed Holy Books or Booklets. However, Allah sent approximately 1,24,000 Prophets in this world to guide the humanity. These Prophets provided the understanding with the best message, yet, people accepted them according to their wills.
A total of 4 Holy Books were revealed to 4 Prophets, namely Hazrat Isa (A.S), Hazrat Musa (AS), Hazrat Dawood (AS) and Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). The Books revealed to these Prophets were Bible, Torah, Zabur, and The Holy Quran respectively. However, among these, the Holy Quran is the only book that is present as it was revealed. The believers of the other books made changes in them according to the changing circumstances. You can read and listen to the original Quran at MP3 Quran (www.truemuslims.net/).
The Holy Quran, 1400 years ago, was revealed to determine the problems of the people of that time. It was published in 23 years. As the duration of its revelation shows, the verses of the Quran were published according to the conditions of the Prophet (PBUH) or His people. However, the Quran is the written form, but the Holy Prophet (PBUH) interpreted the Divine Book by His practical example.
When the verses were revealed, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) used to call a Muslim writer to put it those in the written form. As the Muslims of that era had to face many crises because of preaching Islam, there were no better resources available to write the Quran as a whole in the form of Book. The Quran was written on the stones, trees, leaves and other such places. Also, when the Prophet used to recite the revelation, the Sahaba memorised it right there. Hence, the Holy Quran was secured in the written form as well as in the hearts of Huffaz.
The Huffaz have been given so much priority in Islam. As the responsibility of memorising the Holy Book is great, the reward is greater as well. Even reciting a single letter of Quran ads an increment of 10 rewards for the reader. One can imagine the reward for memorising it. Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that keeping fasts and the Quran will be the leading causes of one’s interception on the Day Of Judgement.
All that has happened, all that is happening and all that will happen is already mentioned in the Quran. The Quran shows the right path to follow, to succeed in this world and the life hereafter. You should read the translation of the Holy Quran to comprehend the Divine Message of the Lord.
