Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur’an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (Should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shall be grateful.
(Surah al-Baqarah, ayat 185)
Today,17 Ramadhan marks the 1399 years of the Nuzul Al-Quran.On that day Allah S.W.T reveal al-Quran to Nabi Muhammad S.A.W through malaikat Jibreel in Hira' cave at the top of a hill name Jabal Nur,Makkah Al-Mukarramah.When Nabi Muhammad S.A.W was isolated himself from the wrong doings of his people,malaikat Jibreel come and reveal the first 5 ayat of surah Al-Alaq,and thus Nabi Muhammad S.A.W was appointed as Rasullulah and the nabi akhir zaman(end of the times)
On the 17th of Ramadan, in most Muslim countries, we are celebrating Nuzul al-Quran marking the time when the whole content of the Qur’an is descended from Lawh al-Mahfuz to Bayt al-`Izzah and marking too the first time Qur’anic verses are revealed from Bayt al-`Izzah to Prophet Muhammad SAW before they are revealed bit by bit for around 23 years after that.
Nuzul Al-Quran is one of Allah blessing towards its believers .It give reminders and big lesson for us.Al-Quran has become our guidance,our source of knowledge in life and afterlife.As a muslim.Beliving in Al-Quran is one of our pillars of life.Al-Quran is also called an-nur which means the light that shines.Every contain in Al-quran is true
I hope on this blessed day we not forget to seek blessing from Allah.
