    The Descent of Al-Qur'an

    Post by Muhammad Mubarak on Sun Nov 17, 2013 11:13 pm

    NUZULUL QUR’AN
    It simply means the descent of the glorious Quran revealed to the Prophet (S.A.W) and was divided into two forms, the first revelation was descended to baytul ‘Izah at once while the second form was taken from baytul ‘Izah by angel Jubril in piece meal to the prophet (S.A.W) in a gradual manner.
    STAGES OF DESCENCY
    1. Ist descent stage: The prove of this is stated in Qur’an [Nay! This is a Glorious Qur'an, (Inscribed) in Al-Lauh Al-Mahfûz (The Preserved Tablet)! (Al-Burooj, 21-22)
    2. 2nd descent stage: This is the gradual revelation of the Qur’an, the prove of this is stated in [Al-Furqan, 25:32] “And those who disbelieve say: "Why is not the Qur'an revealed to him all at once?" Thus (it is sent down in parts), that We may strengthen your heart thereby. And We have revealed it to you gradually, in stages. (It was revealed to the Prophet SAW in 23 years.).
    The significance and wisdom behind gradual revelation
    1. Steadying the prophet’s heart
    2. Gentleness with the prophet
    3. Gradation in legislation
    4. Facilitating the preservation of the Qur’an
    5. Dealing with problems as they arose
    ASBAAB AN-NUZUL
    This is referred to the reference to an incident or an enquiry, it buttress on the circumstances and reason why a particular Surah or aayat was revealed to the Prophet (S.AW).
    Importance of Asbaab An-nuzuul
     It helps to understand the prudence behind various commandment
     It clears any ambiguity pertaining to an ayah
     It provides the information background of a particular revelation.

    Masha Allah.This is also a good summary. However, there is an observation.The Quran was never sent to Lawful mahfudh but rather preserved there. Later sent to Baytul Izzah and finally revealed to the Prophet gradually. Don't relent in your effort to produce better than this. More power to ur elbow.
