Ramadan Mubarak have gone, and Muslims have collected, lots of Allah's

chosen some facts about Quran Mubarak. Read quran, for about 5 minutes
daily. You'll definately feel relaxed. Well! Let's start with Allah's
In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Merciful
Facts about the Qur'an
The Glorious Qur'an is the Word of Allah as revealed to His Prophet,
Muhammad, peace be on him and his progeny.
On reading the Qur'an one is at once convinced that it is the Word
of Allah, for no man can write such perfect guidance on so many subjects.
The Holy Qur'an says that no man will be able to forge even a part of it
and that no corruption shall touch it from any side. It is a miracle that
the Holy Qur'an has remained unchanged and unaltered during all these 1400
years and it shall remain so till the Day of Resurrection, for Allah, has
taken it on Himself to protect it.
The Book of Allah is like an ocean. The less learned, like children,
collect pebbles and shells from its shores. The scholars and thinkers,
like pearl divers, bring out from it the highest philosophy, wisdom and
rulse of a perfect way of living.
For easy daily recitation, the Qur'an is divided into thirty equal
parts. One part takes only twenty-four reading minutes, and the whole
Book requires twelve reading hours. There are 114 chapters, and 6,226
verses, containing 99,464 words made up of 330, 113 letters.
Millions of Muslims read the Qur'an daily. Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq has
said that, the minimum daily reading of the Qur'an should be fifty
verses or one-fourth of the part, about five minutes reading.
