How do you know that the Quran is really from God?

Dear Terence,

Thank you for your question.

Answering your question, the famous American preacher, Sheikh Yusuf Estes, states:

Muslims have something that offers the clearest proof of all - the Glorious Quran. There is no other book like it anywhere on earth. It is absolutely perfect in the Arabic language. It has no mistakes in grammar, meanings or context.

The scientific evidences are well known around the entire world, even amongst non-Muslim scholars.

Predictions in the Quran have come true; and its teachings are clearly for all people, all places and all times.

Surprisingly enough, the Quran itself provides us with the test of authenticity and offers challenges against itself to prove its veracity.

Allah tells us in the Quran:

Haven't the unbelievers considered if this was from other than Allah, they would find within it many contradictions?

Another amazing challenge from Allah's Book:

If you are in doubt about it, bring a book like it.

And Allah challenges us with:

Bring ten chapters like it.

And finally:

Bring one chapter like it.

No one has been able to produce a book like it, nor ten chapters like it, nor even one chapter like it.

It was memorized by thousands of people during the lifetime of Muhammad (peace be upon him) and then this memorization was passed down from teacher to student for generation after generation, from mouth to ear and from one nation to another.

Today every single Muslim has memorized some part of the Quran in the original Arabic language that it was revealed in over 1,400 years ago, even though most of them are not Arabs.

There are over 1.8 billion Muslims living on the earth today who have totally memorized the entire Quran, word for word, and can recite the entire Quran, in Arabic just as Prophet Muhammad did 14 centuries ago.

We hope this answers your question.

Keep in touch.
