Muslim United Forcce

An important note. I, along with other Muslim brothers, am forming a Muslim Student Body to promote brotherhood in Muslims and promote Muslim education. Those who want to support us in this noble cause and help the Muslim Youth to unite under a common banner should comment their names,email address and country below. This is a vital step to restore the Muslim nation to it's former glory. Islam has given so much to you. It is time to pay back that debt. The Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace ) said:" Everyone one of you is responsible and everyone of you will be questioned about his responsibilty." Thanks.

Compilation of the Holy Quran


Since the Holy Quran was not revealed all at once and its
different verses were revealed as and when appropriate,
so it was neither possible nor practicable from the very
beginning to write and preserve it in a book form.
Before one can begin to understand the manner in which
it was preserved, the amazing memories of
the Arab nation must be kept in mind. And of course, the
fact that Allah Himself has said:
“Verily, it is We Who have sent down this Message and it is We Who
shall guard it.” (Surah Hijr; 15:9)

How the Quran was preserved in the time of the Holy Prophet?

 The Quran was revealed to the Holy Prophet through Jibril , who would make
sure that he s learnt its verses by heart.
 Once the Holy Prophet had memorized the verses, Jibril would tell him that
these verses should be placed in so and so Surah in so and so order.
 When the Holy Prophet had learnt the verses, he would then teach them to his
companions who would
 Learn them by heart (these Huffaz were 1000s)
 The scribes of the Holy Prophet, would write the verses under his instruction
on paper, stone tablets, bones, palm leaves, wooden boards or animal skins.
(These companions were about 34).
 Ardah
 Quran was preserved in partial volumes in writing, but primarily in the hearts
of tens of thousands of his companions.

Preservation and Compilation duringthe caliphates of Abu Bakr and Umar

 A large number of Huffaz killed at Yamamah
 Umar proposed to Abu Bakr: Lets Write it down in a single
volume
 After some initial hesitation, he Agreed
 A team of Muqri Sahaba led by Zaid bin Thabit were formed to
conduct this task

How did Zayd ensure authenticity?

 The contributor must have in writing as well as be a Hafiz
 He tested its reliability against his own memory and that of
his team of Huffaz
 Two trustworthy witnesses had testified to the fact that the
particular verse had been written in the presence of the
Prophet
 The written verses were matched with the collections of
companions
The Final Volume
 This Task was completed by Umar’s time and stayed with him
until his martyrdom.
 Then it went in the custody of Hafsah and thus became
known as Mus’haf-i-Hafsah.

Preservation and Compilation in  the period of Uthman bin 'Affan  Islamic Empire had spread far and wide—

 New people with new tongues, languages, dialects and
pronunciations had become Muslims
 They began to use these to recite Quran in sometimes odd
ways.
 Hudhayfa bin Yaman approached the caliph Uthman and told
him about the possible dangers of this
 Uthman immediately took action
 Reassembled a team under Zaid bin Thabit
 Made seven copies of Mushaf e Hafsa
 Sent these to the provincial capitals
 Destroyed any deviant/incomplete manuscript
