Is the Qur’an the word of God?
Is the Qur’an the word of God?
The Qur’an is a revelation sent down from God Most Gracious. Gabriel came down with permission from God to give Muhammad a warning for all mankind. So, who is speaking in the Qur’an? Is God speaking throughout the Qur’an? Contemporary thought says that the Qur’an is God’s actual words, meaning God is speaking mostly in the book. But is that what the Qur’an actually says? Why does the Qur’an continuously say “We” in many verses? When “we” is a plural pronoun, not a single pronoun. There is no such thing as a royal “we” in Arabic or Hebrew. The Qur’an is a direct revelation sent down.
Qur’an 2:23 – And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a Surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than God, if you should be truthful.
The “We” in the Qur’an is the angel Gabriel who was the speaker in the Qur’an. The Qur’an is not the word of God but the wisdom and knowledge in the Qur’an is from God. Because Gabriel and all angels of his presence are blessed with wisdom from God. Where is this at in the Qur’an?
Qur’an 81:19-21 – Verily this (Qur’an) is the Word of a most Honorable Messenger Endued with Power, with rank before the Lord of the Throne, With authority there, (and) faithful to his trust.
The verse above says that the Qur’an is the word meaning speech or speaker of an Honorable messenger. This messenger has power and rank before the throne. This is not talking about Muhammad it is speaking about the angel Gabriel. Muhammad was a man. He does not have power in heaven or rank amongst the angels. Gabriel fits that position. He is the angel of God’s presence. What is his rank or position? Gabriel is fifth of the five angels who keep watch: “Gabriel, one of the holy angels, who is over Paradise and the serpents and the Cherubim.” (1 Enoch 20:7)
When Enoch asked who the four figures were that he had seen: “And he said to me: ‘This first is Michael, the merciful and long-suffering: and the second, who is set over all the diseases and all the wounds of the children of men, is Raphael: and the third, who is set over all the powers, is Gabriel: and the fourth, who is set over the repentance unto hope of those who inherit eternal life, is named Phanuel.’ And these are the four angels of the Lord of Spirits and the four voices I heard in those days.” (Enoch 40:9)
Qur’an2:97 – Say: Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel-for he brings down the (revelation) to thy heart by Allah’s will, a confirmation of what went before, and guidance and glad tidings for those who believe.
The primary narrator in the Qur’an is Gabriel. Muhammad is told what to say by Gabriel and The Most High channels Gabriel to speak in a few verses. This is the truth about the Qur’an.
The Injil (Book of Revelations)
In the Injil (Book of Revelations) an angel is predicted to come to the earth and teach mankind certain principles.He is predicted to come and teach mankind a gospel different from Christian gospels. The word gospel only means good news. The teaching of the Qur’an is good news or a gospel.
Revelations 14:6-7 – And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.”
This angel was supposed to come and teach. This angel didn’t come to teach a trinity gospel but a One God doctrine. He came to teach mankind to worship the One God who created everything not to worship Jesus a messenger. This angel was Gabriel the keeper of paradise and the speech in the Qur’an. The Qur’an is called by IHOI The Angel Book. We are ordered to believe in it showing our belief in angels and the wisdom of God.
Qur’an 81:19-21 – Verily this (Qur’an) is the word of a most Honorable Messenger Endued with Power, with rank before the Lord of the Throne, With authority there, (and) faithful to his trust.
