Is the Noble Quran Eternal?
The Noble Quran is the Holy Words and Revelation of Allah Almighty. It was sent down to Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, to be the Light and the Guide to Mankind, and to bring them from the darkness of worshiping idols and other methods of polytheism such as trinity, into the Lightness of Worshiping One True Living GOD Almighty. Let us look at few Noble Verses from the Noble Quran:
"Say: 'O People of the Book (i.e., Jews and Christians)! Come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.' If then they turn back, say ye: 'Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah's Will).' (The Noble Quran, 3:64)"
"God forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him; but He forgiveth anything else, to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with God is to devise a sin Most heinous indeed. (The Noble Quran, 4:48)"
"Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to God, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith? For God did take Abraham for a friend. (The Noble Quran, 4:125)"
"Then Praise be to Allah, Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth- Lord and Cherisher of all the worlds! To Him be Glory throughout the heavens and the earth: and He is Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom!. (The Noble Quran, 45:36-37)"

The Noble Quran was sent to Mankind to direct them in their life here on Earth. After death, and when we all get resurrected, the Noble Quran's Judgement Days Prophecies will be fulfilled. After that, the Noble Quran as is is no longer used by Allah Almighty, because we will be living in Heaven under Allah Almighty's Mercy and directly prostrating to Him. There is no mention of any new Revelations in Heaven in the Noble Quran. Instead, we will be living directly under the Holy Shadow of Allah Almighty, and we will be communicating with Him directly. That's why there will be no need for Prophets and Holy Books and Revelations in Paradise.
So therefore, as the Holy Word of Allah Almighty, the Noble Quran never dies because like the rest of Allah Almighty's Divine Words, It is preserved in the Record:
"In whatever business thou mayest be, and whatever portion thou mayest be reciting from the Quran,- and whatever deed ye (mankind) may be doing,- We are witnesses thereof when ye are deeply engrossed therein. Nor is hidden from thy Lord (so much as) the weight of an atom on the earth or in heaven. And not the least and not the greatest of these things but are recorded in a clear record. (The Noble Quran, 10:61)"
However, the Noble Quran's Contents are only to be used by Allah Almighty for a finite time. So whether one wants to say that the Noble Quran's Laws are Eternal or not, that is one's personal interpretation and personally I wouldn't disagree either way. But the Noble Quran, as is, is forever Preserved by Allah Almighty, and therefore Its Holy Words are Eternal.
