Qur’an – A literary miracle

This post is part of the A to Z Challenge. My theme for the month is A to Z of words in English with an Arabic origin.

Qur’an is the Holy Book for the 1.5 billion Muslims around the world. Mexico to Philippines, Sweden to Johannesburg,┬áthe language, the words, the pronunciation and the way of recitation of the Holy Qur’an remains the same. And so has it been for the past 1400 years !

Besides it being the spiritual guidebook for Muslims worldwide, it is also a book of literary miracles with every harakath, every thanween and every word having a meaning or reason for it’s usage. The soulful recitation combined with the onion-layered meaning of the words melts the heart of any word lover !

    We Muslims are so lucky.
