The Qur'an is a complete and original compilation of the Final Revelation from God to mankind through the last Prophet Muhammad, Peace be upon Him. The Qur'an has essentially three qualities that make it universal. Firstly, in its original Arabic form, it is a masterpiece of immense literary value - fusing the style of presentation with the substance being presented in a blend of unique proportions. Secondly, though its message is a continuation of that contained in the earlier Revelations made to Abraham, David, Moses and Jesus, yet this message has a sense of fulfillment and originality that attracts toward it Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Finally, it has a wealth of information - both worldly wisdom and intellectual conceptions - which provides the code of life for mankind generally and Muslims in particular. Indeed, the Qur'an's miracle lies in its ability to offer at least something to non-believers and everything to believers.Shakir, M.
