When was Quran created.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Dear Brother, Sister,
May Allah reward you for the good deed.
When did Allah created Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and how?
When was Quran created? Was it created when Allah created Adam AS
When was Salah created. Did any prophet prayed as before Muhammed (SAW)?
These were few of the questions that have risen during discussion. I need your help in understand and also helping (myself) or my friends in finding right path.

When was Quran created
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: When did Allah created Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and how?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 172:
172 When thy Lord drew forth from the children of Adam from their loins their descendants and made them testify concerning themselves (saying): "Am I not your Lord? They all said: "Yea! We do testify!" (This) lest ye should say on the Day of Judgment: "of this we were never mindful."
Like all human beings, the first time their souls were brought forth was in the Presence of the Lord Most High when the Lord Most Majestic drew forth the souls of all of the children of Adam to be born until the Day of Judgment and took a covenant with them that Allah Subhanah Alone is The Lord of the Worlds.
And just like all human beings, the second and final time was when the soul of the Prophet (saws) was placed in the womb of his mother.
According to the Guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah there is absolutely no reason to believe that the Last and Final Messenger of Allah (saws) was created before or after or otherwise. And Allah Alone Knows Best.
Your Question: .When was Quran created? Was it created when Allah created Adam AS
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad Verse 39:
39 with Him is the Umm-ul-Kitaab (Mother of the Book)
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 85 Surah Buruj Verses 21-22:
21 Nay this is a Glorious Qur'an
22 (Inscribed) in the Al-Loh Al-Mahfoodh (Tablet Preserved)
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 94 Narrated by Ubadah ibn as-Samit
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: The first thing which Allah Subhanah created was the Pen. He Commanded it to write. It asked: What should I write? The Lord Most Exalted Said: Write the Decree (al-Qadr). So it wrote what had happened and what was going to happen up to eternity.
The Glorious Quran as well as all the other Divine Scriptures revealed to the Prophets before are all from the Umm-ul-Kitaab (Mother of the Book) or the Al-Loh Al-Mahfoodh (Preserved Tablet) which is with Allah Subhanah Alone. Thus the majority of the scholars are of the opinion that the Lord Most Majestic created the Glorious Quran (and all the other Divine Scriptures) well before the creation of man or even the heavens and the earth, and it was revealed in stages unto the heart of the Last and Final Messenger, Mohamed ar-Rasul Allah (saws) in a period of 23 years! And Allah Alone Knows Best.
Your Question: .When was Salah created. Did any prophet prayed as before Muhammed (SAW)?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 67:
67 To every People have we appointed rites (of worship) and ceremonies which they must follow.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 20 Surah Ta Ha Verses 11-14:
11 But when he (Prophet Musa (a.s.)) came to the fire a voice was heard: "O Musa!
12 "Verily I am thy Lord! Therefore (in My Presence) put off thy
shoes: thou art in the sacred
13 "I have chosen thee: listen then to the inspiration.
14 "Verily I am Allah: there is no god but I: so serve thou Me (Alone) and establish regular prayer for celebrating My praise.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 38 Surah Saad Verses 17-18:
17 Have patience at what they say and remember Our Servant Dawood, the man of strength: for he ever turned (to Allah).
18 It was We that made the hills declare in unison with him Our Praises at eventide and at break of day.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verses 42-43:
42 Behold! The angels said: "O Maryam! Allah hath chosen thee and purified thee; chosen thee above the women of all nations.
43 "O Maryam! Worship thy Lord devoutly; prostrate thyself and bow down (in prayer) with those who bow down."
The rites of worship like regular prayer, regular charity, and fasts were ordained by the Lord Most Majestic on the Ummah of every Prophet before the advent of Prophet Mohamed (saws).
One cannot state with absolute conviction that the rite of prayer ordained by the Lord Most Majestic on the Prophets and their followers before the advent of the Last Prophet (saws) were exactly the same or not.but without an iota of a doubt, the rite of prayer (and charity and fasting) was ordained by the Lord upon every Prophet and their followers which came before the Last and Final Messenger (saws).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
