Is the Qur'an narrated in third person?
« on: February 01, 2013, 09:40:49 PM »
As-Salamu 'Alaykum, I just wanted to know what I should say to the Christian missionaries when they say the Qur'an was narrated in third person, or when they ask me if it is written in third person.

Jazak'Allah Khair.

I think both first and third person. I remember reading that it gives an air of royalty.

1. Yâ-Sîn.
2. By the Qur'ân, full of wisdom (i.e. full of laws, evidences, and proofs),
3. Truly, you (O Muhammad SAW) are one of the Messengers,
4. On a Straight Path (i.e. on Allâh's religion of Islâmic Monotheism).
5. (This is) a Revelation sent down by the All­Mighty, the Most Merciful,
6. In order that you may warn a people whose forefathers were not warned, so they are heedless.
(HQ 36:1-7)

What are the evidences in favour of the Qur'an being a divine
Sripture?

Given below is a list of some of the evidences in support of the
divine nature of the Qur'an:

1. It , itself, declares that it is a divine Scripture
2. It shall remain unchanged upto the Last Day.
3. The path of right conduct that it prescribes is faultless.
4. It is practicable.
5. The history that it teaches is faultless and honest.
6. Its literature is incomparable.
7. The prophecies made in it can be seen to have come true.
8. The references in it to the varied phenomena of nature, as
representing the signs of God, are free of controversies.
9. There is no reference, whatsoever, of an unscientific nature in it.
10. It is free of all contradictions.
11. None has been able to take up the challenge it poses when it calls
forth all, and any, to produce an equivalent of at least one of its
chapters.
12. The person who was appointed with it in the world was himself of
a truthful and selfless nature.
