The Holy Qur'an is the only holy scripture revealed by Allah (God) that has remained completely uncorrupted. In its inimitable verses, our Almighty Lord has revealed that the Qur'an is a protected Book. Unlike other scriptures, it has never been – and cannot be corrupted in any way whatsoever:
The Words of your Lord are perfect in truthfulness and justice. No one can change His Words. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing. (Surat al-An'am, 115)
It is We Who have sent down the Reminder and We Who will preserve it. (Surat al-Hijr, 9)
The first two volumes of this book has already referred to some of the miraculous features proving that the Qur'an is Allah’s Word. Scientific facts unknown at the time the Qur’an was revealed, accurate accounts of major historical events from the past, bold predictions about the future, astonishing word repetition patterns that could not have come about by accident, calculations based on the number 19 and noteworthy dates calculated using numerological analysis are just a few of the miraculous aspects of the Qur'an. In addition to its scientific and mathematical miracles, the Qur'an also has no peers when it comes to its beautiful style and its unique Arabic rhyme. (For detailed information see, Harun Yahya, The Miracles of the Qur'an, expanded 4th edition.)
Since the first edition of this book was published over a decade ago, further research into these subjects has revealed numerous previously-unknown examples of miracles related to this Scripture, revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (saas) fourteen centuries ago. In truth, one can certainly expect that the depth of the knowledge contained in the Qur’an will continue to amaze mankind for many years to come. (Allah knows the truth.) As the word of Omniscient Allah, the Holy Qur'an contains much information that people have not understood or are as yet unable to comprehend. By means of the advances in science and technology, that information comes to light at the time of Allah’s Choosing.
Muslims believe in Allah, His Messenger Muhammad (saas) and the Qur’an. Whilst believers don’t need these modern discoveries to prove that the Qur’an is the word of Allah – this truth is already clear – these new facts certainly show doubters that the Qur'an is totally compatible with science. However, we must always remember that the Qur'an is a book that distinguishes between truth and falsehood – and this is its outstanding characteristic. In addition, the Qur’an perfectly reflects the infinite knowledge and wisdom of Allah. The purpose of this book is to help people with very little religious belief understand they cannot ignore the facts contained in the Qur’an. For Muslims, it will simply add to their knowledge. In one verse of the Qur’an our Lord says:
We will show them Our Signs on the horizon and within themselves until it is clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not enough for your Lord that He is a witness of everything? (Surah Fussilat, 53)
