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
