“Will they not then ponder the Qur’an or are there locks upon their hearts?” [Muhammad, 47:24]


Narrated by Ibn Mas’ud: “The Qur’an has an interior (batn) and an exterior (zhir), a limit (hadd) and a point of ascension (matla’ or matli’) – Quoted by Ibn Hibban.

“For Moslem orthodoxy, the Qur’an is not only the uncreated Word of God – uncreated though expressing itself through created elements such as words, sounds and letters – but also the model par excellence of the perfection of language.” [Frithjof Schuon, Understanding Islam]

“If as Ai’sha said, the character of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, was just like the Qur’an, we can learn more about him by a deep reading of the Holy Book — and more about the Book through meditating on the Prophet’s character: each is a mirror for the other.” [Charles Upton, The Virtues of the Prophet]
