How exactly quran revealed and compiled
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: ….can u tell me how Quran get written in Arabic??
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 43 Surah Zukhruf verses 1-3:
Haa Meem. By this lucid (clear or open) Book (The Al-Quran). We have made it an Arabic Quran, so that you may understand it.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 41 Surah Ha Mim As Sajdaah verse 2-4:
This (Al-Quran) is a Revelation from the All-Compassionate, the Most-Merciful, Allah. A Book whose verses are well-expounded, an Arabic Quran for the people who want to understand, and a giver of good news and a warner.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 1-3:
All praise is for Allah Alone, Who has sent down this Book (Al-Quran) to His Servant (Mohamed (saws)), and assigned nothing crooked to it. This Book says everything directly, so that he may warn the people of the severe chastisement of Allah and give good news to the believers who do righteous deeds; that they will have an excellent reward.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 19 Surah Maryam verse 97:
O Mohamed, We have made this Quran easy, and sent it down in your tongue so that you should give good news to the pious and warn the stubborn people.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) had himself appointed several amongst his noble companions as ‘scribes’, and whenever the Verses of the Glorious Quran were revealed by the Command of the Lord Most High unto his noble heart, the Messenger of Allah (saws) would immediately guide the appointed ‘scribes’ to document the Verses of the Glorious Quran on whatever material was available to them: on parchments, scapula, leaf-stalks, etc…..and besides scores of the noble companions had secured the Glorious Quran to their memories.
After the death of Prophet Mohamed (saws) the need arose to document the Glorious Quran in a Book form, a process which was started during the reign of Hadrat Abu Bakr (r.a.) and completed during the reign of Hadrat Uthmaan (r.a.).
The language spoken and understood by the Noble Prophet (saws) was Arabic; the language spoken and understood by the first addressees of the Glorious Quran, the Quraysh of Makkah, was Arabic….thus it was only natural that the Lord Most Majestic Revealed His Last and Final Message of the Glorious Quran in the language spoken and understood by His Last and Final Messenger (saws) and the people he (saws) initially addressed; ie. Arabic.
Your Question: Who spoke the original words?
Allah says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 7:
It is Allah, Who sent down this Quran to you.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 41 Surah Ha Mim As Sajdaah verse 2:
This (Al-Quran) is a Revelation from the All-Compassionate, the Most-Merciful, Allah.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 1:
All praise is for Allah Alone, Who has sent down this Book (Al-Quran) to His Servant (Mohamed (saws)), and assigned nothing crooked to it.
The ‘Original Words’ of the Glorious Quran are obviously from Allah Subhanah. Upon the Precise Command and Guidance of Allah Subhanah, his Arch-Angel Hadrat Jibrael (a.s.) was entrusted to declare the first five verses of the Glorious Quran to the Prophet Mohamed (saws) in person in the cave of ‘Hira’ in Makkah….and subsequently over a period of 23 years and in stages, Hadrat Jibrael (a.s.) ‘downloaded’ the rest of the Glorious Quran directly to the heart of the Noble Prophet (saws) under the Precise and Direct Command of the Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
