The Greatest Miracle
The Qur’an – A clear Book from Allah that is not approached by falsehood neither from before it nor from behind it, sent down by the All-Wise, Worthy of all Praise. It is the miracle of miracles revealed to the best creation to ever set foot on this earth. It is the Strong Rope of Allah, the Straight Path and the Light which guides to the truth and the right way. It will be either for you or against you on the Day of Resurrection. In it is news of what was before, what is to come, and a source of judgment between mankind. Whoever abandons it has indeed been destroyed by Allah and whoever seeks guidance in other than it has been led astray. Whoever speaks by it has been truthful, whoever rules by it has been just and whoever calls to it has indeed called to the straight path. It is a covenant between Allah and His servants and the most Noble and honored from the heavenly Scriptures.
Mountains are often mentioned in the Qur’an as symbols of great stability, firmness, endurance and integrity. But even with these powerful characteristics, the mountains were unable to bear the trust of the Qur’an. The mountains knew their capacity and they knew the incredible weight of the Qur’an. For them to shatter into pieces, break apart and cleft asunder is no easy matter. They have a right to that because of what the Qur’an contains. It is not the physical weight that humbles the mountains, but it is the Words of Allah that are indeed heavy.
“Verily, We shall send down to you a heavy Word.” (Qur’an 73:5)
