Allah the Exalted revealed the Best of the Heavenly Books in the Best of the months and the Best of the nights of that Blessed month from the Preserved Scripturum at a time on the Heavens of this world and placed it in the (the Much-frequented House) (the House of Honor/Power) located in the seventh firmament. Almighty says:

“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.” (2:185)

The above verses show the deep relation between the blessed month Ramadan and the Qur’an. So, we must try and recite the Qur’an more and more in the Holy and Blessed month of Ramadan.Even Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings of Allah be upon him himself used to do that with specification and recited the Qur’an to Jibreel peace be upon him every night of the Holy month.

As an instance in Sahih Bukhari; Ibn e Abbas may Allah be pleased with him narrates that “Allah’s Apostle was the most generous of all the people, and he used to reach the peak in generosity in the month of Ramadan when Gabriel met him. Gabriel used to meet him every night of Ramadan to teach him the Qur’an. Allah’s Apostle was the most generous person, even more generous than the strong uncontrollable wind (in readiness and haste to do charitable deeds)”.

The Holy Qur’an is the greatest of all books and it being the Speech of Allah the Exalted and revealed from Him is enough to be a proof to be greatest. Almighty says:

“And indeed, the Qur’an is the revelation of the Lord of the worlds. The Trustworthy Spirit has brought it down. Upon your heart, [O Muhammad] – that you may be of the warners – In a clear Arabic language. And indeed, it is [mentioned] in the scriptures of former peoples.” (26:192-196)

“Blessed is He who sent down the Criterion upon His Servant that he may be to the worlds a warner -” (25:1)

“Then I swear by the setting of the stars, And indeed, it is an oath – if you could know – [most] great. Indeed, it is a noble Qur’an. In a Register well-protected; None touch it except the purified. [It is] a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.” (56:75-80)

At one place; Allah the Exalted mentions Qur’an “الكتاب المبين” and at another “الكتاب الحكيم” and at another “تنزيل الكتاب من الله العزيزالحكيم”. And at some places Allah the Exalted takes an oath while mentioning the holy Qur’an “حم ~ و الكتاب المبين ~ انا انزلناه قرآناً عربياً لعلكم تعقلون” at another place “يس ~ والقران الحكيم” also

“ص ~ والقران ذي الذكر”.

Henceforth not needing but still Allah the Exalted educating the Human creation about different attributes of the Qur’an and taking oath to manifest its Greatness in order to make people understand its importance and to make them revere it from the bottom of their hearts and to make it as a guiding principle in their lives.

This Great Book the Holy Qur’an being voluble and eloquent is such a book without any example prior or after its revelation. As, Allah the Exalted throws a challenge; “If mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistants.”  (17:88)

This Qur’an guides the Human to the blessings of this world and the hereafter. And show a steady and measured path leading them to the paradise. Allah says;

“Indeed, this Qur’an guides to that which is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward.” (17:9)

Further; “… There has come to you from Allah a light and a clear Book. By which Allah guides those who pursue His pleasure to the ways of peace and brings them out from darkness into the light, by His permission, and guides them to a straight path.” (5:15-16)

Allah Almighty says; “Indeed, those who disbelieve in the message after it has come to them… And indeed, it is a mighty Book. Falsehood cannot approach it from before it or from behind it; [it is] a revelation from a [Lord who is] Wise and Praiseworthy.” (41:41-42)

Also; “This is the Book about which there is no doubt…” (2:2)

Allah the Exalted says; “Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.” (15:9)

When Prophet peace be upon him started reciting quickly with jibreel peace be upon him with fear of forgetting the revelation while Jibreel peace be upon him was conveying the Almighty’s message then Allah the Exalted revealed the verses; “Move not your tongue with it, [O Muhammad], to hasten with recitation of the Qur’an. Indeed, upon Us is its collection [in your heart] and [to make possible] its recitation. So when We have recited it [through Gabriel], then follow its recitation. Then upon Us is its clarification [to you].” (75:16-19)

And so the revelation was then transferred from prophet peace be upon him to the companions. Some memorized them and some wrote them with the available materials with them. Specially the scribes who used to write for Prophet peace be upon him had the Qur’an in written form with them even during the life of the Holy prophet peace be upon him.
