Essay on The Holy Quran (400 Words)
“The Holy Quran is the greatest book of knowledge and instruction for all humanity and for all time.”
The Holy Quran is my favorite book. It provides us language and messages of Allah. For more than thirteen centuries, it has guided humanity. It was revealed to Hazrat Muhammad (may peace be upon him), the last Prophet, in the 7th century, valid till the world exists.
The Holy Qurán is written in the purest and most perfect form of Arabic. It has about 77,640 words and is divided into chapters and verses. The chapters are called suras, which are 114 in all. The opening chapter of the Holy Quran is very short, having six lines. We Muslims repeat it several times a day, and it is called the Fatiha, that is, the preface or introduction. It at once affects the feelings of a true Muslim. He cannot do anything evil or bad if he understands its meaning.
The Holy Qurán makes it clear that Hazrat Muhammad (may peace be upon him) was bringing Islam back to its first, original purity, the only true religion, which had existed since the beginning of the universe. Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) is the last in the line of prophets, going back in time to Adam. Therefore, the Holy Quran is the last of all the holy books revealed by Allah to his prophets. Whereas the other books changed or got corrupted with time, the Quran still exists in its first original (pristine) purity. Every word of it is Allah’s word, perfect and pure. I rightly like this book most of all.
“Islam” means obedience to the will of Allah. The will of Allah is expressed in the Qurán, clearly and completely. It contains Islamic law in its basis. Islamic law covers our private life regarding our food, dress, marriage, prayers, etc. It also tells us clearly about our public life regarding the duties of the government and our duties towards society. It explains, for example, the rules regarding zakat. It explains how we can establish a society in which all help each other and none troubles anyone-a society based on the principles of honesty, justice, and fair play.
If we want to live perfectly on the earth and make our future (other-worldly) life bright, we should follow the Holy Qurán as well as we can. We should try to live nobly and honestly as the Qurán tells us.
