History of Quran writing

The revelation of the words of Allah

Contrary to popular belief, the Quran in Arabic was written during the life of the Prophet of Islam. With each revelation, the available scribes (companions of the prophet) are called to write the verses or suras revealed. The messenger of God told them the order of the verses in order to complete the suras.

Among the known scribes we can cite Ali Ibn Abi Talib, Abu Bakr Assedik, Omar Ibn El Khatab, Khalid Ibn El Walid and many other Sahaba. At the end of the dictation, each scribe reread the written verses to be reviewed and corrected if necessary by the Prophet.

First assembly of the Holy Quran

At the death of the Prophet in the year 13 of the Hijir, the year 632 of our era, the Koran was written but on several supports even if it was memorized by heart by hundreds of Muslims.

At the suggestion of Omar Ibn El Khatab during Abu Bakr's Khilafa, the Holy Quran in Arabic was collected by Zayd Ibn Thabit, one of the Prophet's scribes, resulting in the "Mosshaf". This first phase only collected the different fragments of the Divine text.

Ibn Thabite asked each companion of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) bringing back a written support of the Quran in Arabic, to have a witness who attests that this Koranic support was indeed written before the Messenger of God . If this is not the case, said support is not taken into consideration.

All the Holy Quran was gathered in this way except two verses: "من المؤمنين رجال صدقوا ما عاهدوا الله عليه فمنهم من قضض نحبه ومنهم من ينتظر وما بدلوا" from Surat al-Ahzeb, verse 23, and the last verse of Surah El Tawba "قد جاءكم رسول من أنفسكم عزيز عليه ما عنتم حريص عليكم بالمؤمنين رءوف رحيم".

These two verses were only found written in Companion Abu Khozayma. During the lifetime of the Prophet, the Messenger of God attested that the testimony of Abu Khozayma Ibn Fahde was worth two testimonies.

The Koran was thus transcribed in a Mosshaf. This version will remain with Caliph Omar throughout his khilafa (10 years) then with Hafsa the wife of the Prophet and daughter of Omar Ibn el Khatab, until the khilafa (reign) of Othman Ibn Affane.

2nd assembly of the holy book Quran

At the time of Othman, during a war of Foutouhate, two Muslim armies met. An army from the "Shem" (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan today) and another from Iraq. During the camp everyone listened to the Koranic recitation of the other camp.

One day, a soldier recited a verse in this way "وأتموا الحج والعمرة للبيت" and another the corrected: you have to read "وأتموا الحج والعمرة لله".

Houthaifa Ibn el Yamane (companion of the Prophet Sala Lahu Alaihi Wassalam) listened to them and reported the incident to Caliph Othman. Houthaifa said to the cousin of the Prophet Muhammad "a solution must be found before this nation (the Muslims) divide like the Jews and the Christians".

Othman decided to compare these readings with the version written before the Messenger of God and validated by the companions of the Prophet in the time of Abu Bakr Assidik. The version "وَأَتِمُّوا الْحَجَّ وَالْعُمْرَةَ لِلبيت" was false, an error in memorizing the Quranic text.

To protect the Umma, Othman decides to keep the version validated by the Prophet of Islam (Sala Lahou Alayhi Wa Salem).

A Qurachides commission has been set up, chaired by Zayd Ibn Thabite. They are instructed to create several copies of the Mosshaf version written during the time of ‘Abu Bakr’. A version was sent to each major city (Koufa, Basra, Shem, Makka, Yemen, Bahrayne, and Medina) accompanied by an Imam to teach Muslims how to read the Koran (especially since at that time there was no had neither 'Tachkile' nor the 'Nikates').

Caliph Othman asked all Muslims to compare their versions of the Quran with these certified versions. If these corresponded to the certified version, they could keep it, if not destroy it.

Scripture of the hadith

The prophet forbids the writing of his tradition "Sunna" to have no risk of mixing his tradition and the sacred Word of God, even if the latter is protected by the Almighty "In truth it is We who We sent down the Koran, and We are its custodian”. It is for this reason that the hadith of the Prophet could only be written after his death.

The Quran revealed in Arabic

Since its revelation, the Quran has remained preserved in its exact and primary text. Althoughthere are many translations of the Quran, they are all based on the unique and original Arabic script, which makes the Quran unique from previous scriptures in its sheer authenticity.

Authenticity of the Quran

Many people mistakenly believe that the Quran was written by the Prophet Muhammad. In fact, the Quran is the preserved word of God. At the same time, one might ask, what evidence indicates that the Quran is the Word of God and not the writings of Prophet Muhammad. The Prophet Mohammad, however, was known to be illiterate, implying that he did not write the Quran.

Quran reading (read the quran)

Since the Quran is the universal guide to the perfect life, it should be recited and read with proper knowledge and ease.

Tajwid from Quran

Tajwid is not an exclusively religious term but it is mainly used in relation to the Quran. The word "Tajwid" basically means "improve or perform in a better way". In other words, it refers to the rules of pronunciation.

The Quran is the most important book of the Islamic religion. Knowing the Tajweed of the Quran (recitation and reading of the Quran), is rewarded with the blessings of Allah Almighty. It also gives you inner peace and serenity in your mind and heart.

If you are not learning Tajwid, then you are missing a fundamentally religious and spiritual part of your religion. This gives Tajweed the importance that he is a very important part in the recitation of this Holy Book. Therefore, learning the rules of Tajweed will help you improve your Quran recitation and increase your fluency.
