History of Holy Quran:

Allah wrote this Holy book in Arabic which is so easy language to understand for those who want to make it source of salvation. At the age of forty, when Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ was in his spiritual journey of finding existence of true Divine, he used to stay in small cave of ‘Hira’. Cave of ‘Hira’ is situated on the top of ‘Jabl al Noor’. One day when Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ was in meditation he received the first revelation of Allah Almighty sent through His angel Hazrat Jibrail. This was 27th of Ramadan. In this regard, ‘Laila tul Qadar’ is associated with the revelation of noble book. The prophet Muhammad was in the state of great surprise at the arrival of Hazrat Jibrail. Jibrail repeatedly asked him to read ‘In the name of Lord’. In this context Allah Almighty blessed his creatures and universe by educating Muhammad ﷺ. So, Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ became the source of ultimate guidance to his followers. First revelation is:
“Read in the name of thy Lord who created; [He] created the human being from blood clot. Read in the name of thy Lord who taught by the pen: [He] taught the human being which he knew not.” Holy Quran was revealed almost in a period of 23 years.

Holy Quran is written in Arabic and its fonts are more impressive and appealing. It is so perfect that neither man nor any other creature can write even a word like that. There are four noble books revealed by Allah on His prophets but except Quran no other book exists in its original form.
