Qurans Undeniable Literary Miracle

What do we mean when we say the Quran is the final miracle? One of many reasons is down to its literal brilliance which blows your mind. What I'm about to present to you will leave you in awe. Just try to pay attention to truly appreciate what Allah says. This is heavy!


There is absolutely no way that the Quran could have been from anyone except God Himself.

That NO man could have ever come up with it.

In Surah Jumu'ah {62:1-2} Allah says: "Yu Sabbihu Lillaahi Maa Fis-Samaawaati wa maa fil-ardil malikil quddoosil Azeezil Hakeem" - 1

"Huwalladhee Ba'atha fill Ummiyyeena rasoolam minhum yatloo alayhim Aayaatihi wa yuzakkeehim wa yu'allimuhumul kitaaba wal hikmah . . ." - 2

Those of you who read Quran often know that, in many Aayaat at the end, Allah mentions two of his names/attributes.

E.g. Ghafoorun RaHeem, . . . 'Azeezun Hakeem . . . 'Azeezun Dhunntiqaam, . . . Samee'un Aleem . . . Etc. Etc.

Allah mentions 2 of his names most times.

The Aayah I mentioned has 4 attributes mentioned instead of the typical 2.

"Yu Sabbihu Lillaahi Maa Fis-Samaawaati wa maa fil-ardil 1*Al-Malik 2*Al-Quddoos 3*Al-Azeez 4*Al-Hakeem" This begs the question, why 4? What could be the reason for the change in pattern?

Now firstly, I'll mention the basic meanings of these 4 names.

1. Al Malik "The King" 2. Al Quddoos "The Perfectly Pure/The Source of All Purity" 3. Al Azeez "The Authority" 4. Al Hakeem "The Wise"

The First Aayah of Surah Jumu'ah is about Allah.

The second Aayah of Surah Jumu'ah is about the messenger Muhammad (Peace & blessings upon him) "Huwalladhee Ba'atha fill Ummiyyeena rasoolam minhum yatloo alayhim Aayaatihi wa yuzakkeehim wa yu'allimuhumul kitaaba wal hikmah . . ."

Before I give you the translation, this 2nd Aayah is like a summary of the entire Seerah of the Prophet.

In this Aayah, Allah talks about how MuHammad (Peace & blessings upon him) managed to transform society. From the Arabs being just a mere footnote of history, hardly worthy of mention, to an enlightened example, a blueprint for civilisations of the future to follow. - How was he able to do it? - What steps did he follow?

Allah mentions these 4 steps in this 2nd Aayah. 1st Aayah, 4 Attributes of Allah 2nd Aayah, 4 steps of the Prophet. Allah mentioning 4 of his names, and the messenger follows 4 steps.

Now let's take a step back for a moment. I want you to picture yourself and imagine living in a time 2000 years go. You are travelling on your donkey, and you enter into a new kingdom.

How do you know you've entered a Kingdom? What do you see around you? What do you notice?

Flags . . . Statues . . . Soldiers . . . A Castle . . . etc.

You would notice certain signs that will tell you that you've entered a kingdom where the King resides.

A King is known by his symbols. You will not know a King unless he's wearing a crown or a robe, you won't recognise him if he's just wearing a t-shirt living in a tent. He has to have a castle.

These are certain indicators and signs of a king. A king is known by his symbols and signs.

Now, what was the first name of Allah mentioned in Aayah 1? "Al-Malik" The King. Allah says about the Prophet in Aayah 2, the 1st thing is "Yatloo Alayhim Aayaatihi" "He narrates to them his signs" (The Stars, The moon, The Sun . . . )

The 2nd name of Allah mentioned? "Al Quddoos" The Source of All Purity The 2nd thing the messenger does is? "wa yuzakkeehim" "And he purifies them" (. . . see the connections so far?)

The 3rd thing. Allah mentions that he is the "Ultimate Authority" "Al Azeez" Where do laws come from? From Authority. In a house the laws come from the parents because they have authority, in a classroom it comes from the teacher, in a country it comes from the government, in a kingdom, it comes from the king . . .

Allah says the about the Prophet that; "Wa Yu'Allimuhumul Kitaab" "He teaches them the book" In Arabic literature "Al Kitaab" also means the law. It's saying, "He Teaches them the Law"

Even in English, there's a saying, "The Judge threw 'the book' at him" meaning he used the full force of the law on the plaintiff.

Also, how we say "Doing the job by 'the Book', meaning, doing it according to the law/protocol/procedure which comes from an authority (Al-Azeez)

"Al Azeez" is the authority, and the Messenger teaches from the book of the authority. See the connection? . . .

Now the 4th attribute in Aayah 1, "Al Hakeem" Allah says in Aayah 1, "Wa yu'Allimuhumul kitaaba *wal Hikmah" "And he teaches them the book and Wisdom". Where does wisdom come from? It comes from the Wise.

4 names of Allah in the 1st Aayah 4 activities of the Messenger in the 2nd Aayah And they each correlated perfectly!

It took me a good 45 minutes or so to write this down, chop and change, word it better etc. But Allah, he just says it!

What Human being is able to think . . . "I just said 4 names of Allah, I should correlate them with a verb and a principle that correlates and corresponds perfectly in sequence to what I just said . . ."

That is beyond human capability. We're not able to do that, Allah however, he just Says it. The prophet didn't spend time figuring all these things out. Revelations came, and immediately he would recite to the people. Sadly for us, we just read right through it, we don't even realise what we have just read and how majestic and mesmerising it all is. We read right through these miracles and powerful observations and most of the times we don't even get a taste of it.

But when you do, you're just left speechless! Like Wow! It's humbling. Allahu Akbar.
