Qur’an, Symmettry, Rhythm, Symphony, Arrangement


Quran Majeed is the final edition for humans’ guidance on the earth. It is an unchangeable, ever living miracle of God, who Himself is the Guardian of this      last heavenly revealed book. Allah has revealed it according to the need of time and proper occasion. It is a paragon of rhyme and rhythm, eloquence and articulacy, symphony and symmetry.  In the beginning, it was compiled under the auspicious guidance of Muhammad (S.A.W) the last prophet of Allah in its best order and sequence both by Surah and Verse. Whenever the Qur'anic verse was revealed, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) would call on Ibn Wahi to write down that verse at its proper place in surah. And then the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) used to recite the Holy Quran in congregational prayer. Although the holy Quran was written down in complete form but not in the form of book. Later on in the reign of Sahaba (R.A) the Holy Quran was preserved in book form. Today we have the same authentic copy of this holy book, issued by Sabaha (R.A.) Now there is a difference of opinion among the scholars regarding the symmetrical pattern of Holy Qur'an that we have today. On group holds the view that the whole Quran is in its best form and order which reflects its true harmony through verse and surah.  While the other group is of the view that the holy Quran has different stylistic patterns which do not reflect harmony among their thematic,   contextual and rhetorical aspects of verses and surahs. The bottom line of the article lies with the Symphonic Array of the Quran.
