“Surely, the religion with Allah is ISLAM, complete submission”… Qur’an 3:19

The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion… Quran 2: 255.

What is the Quran? The Qur’an is the last testament from the Creator of the heavens and earth to humanity. It is an extremely engaging book that contains one hundred and fourteen (114) chapters. It is a book with a beginning without an ending, it has an introduction without a conclusion. It is a book that talks about itself the same way it talks about the world.

What is the Quran? The Quran is the book of Islam, the encyclopedia of all divinely revealed books. Reading it links you up with Prophet Adam; pondering it connects you with Prophet Musa. The Quran incarnates the odyssey of Prophet Musa and the Jews in the Wilderness. It relives the saga of Prophet Isa (Jesus Christ, upon him, be peace and blessings of Allah) and his people in Palestine. Open the Quran if you desire to reread the history of history. Read the Quran if you desire to answer the unanswered questions in such fields as theology, philosophy, geography, biology, chemistry and oceanography.

One of the unique features of the month of Ramadan is that it was in it that the whole revelatory experience of the Quran started for Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w). The Quran made the month of Ramadan unique; Ramadan makes the Quran unique.

It is during this month Muslims constantly return to the book, all the day, all the night. Unlike other scriptures, reading and pondering the last testament, the Quran, is an obligation for the Muslim faithful. A fasting Muslim who does not read the Quran is like a date, sweet to taste but bereft of any odour.
