Who was the first jamiah al Quran?
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
who was the first jamiah al Quran?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Who collected the quran first
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, the Quran that we have in our midst today, is in the exact same format, and each Surah and each verse arranged in the exact same manner as commanded by Allah Subhanah and recited by the Messenger of Allah (saws). Whenever a verse or Surah of the Holy Quran was revealed, the Messenger of Allah (saws) would command, as guided by Allah Subhanah, that it be documented and gave precise instructions where exactly the verse and the Surah was to be placed in the Quran. This process of arranging the Surahs and verses in their exact location was commanded by the Messenger of Allah (saws) under the guidance of Allah Subhanah.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqaan verse 32:
32 Those who reject Faith say: "Why is not the Qur'an revealed to him all at once?" Thus (is it revealed) that We (Allah) may strengthen thy (O Prophet (saws)) heart thereby, and We have rehearsed it to thee in slow well-arranged stages gradually.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 75 Surah Qiyaamah verses 17-18:
(O Prophet) It is upto Us to have it (the Quran) collected and read! Therefore, when We are reciting it, listen to its recital carefully.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 15 Surah Al Hijr verse 9:
It is We (Allah), Who has sent down this Quran, and We will assuredly guard it (against corruption).
Time and time again the Messenger of Allah (saws) recited the Glorious Quran in public in the prayers; and he (saws) would recite the Glorious Quran every year with Hadrat Jibrael (a.s.), and in the last year of his life he (saws) recited the Quran in full twice with Hadrat Jibrael (a.s.) exactly verbatim and in the same format which is available amongst us today.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.819 Narrated by Aisha
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.520 Narrated by Abu Huraira
Gabriel used to repeat the recitation of the Qur'an with the Prophet (saws) once a year, but he repeated it twice with him in the year he died.
Hadrat Jibrael (a.s.) used to revise the Quran, in the format that we have today with the Prophet (saws), and this exact format was taught by the Prophet (saws) to the believers. This compilation of arranging the Surahs and verses as we recite them today, is done not only with the knowledge of the Prophet (saws), but it was done with the knowledge and under the guidance of the All Knowing, All Wise, Allah Subhanah.
Your Question: who was the first jamiah al Quran?
In light of the above evidence, the first human being to compile the Glorious Quran was none other than the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws) as guided by Allah Subhanah, the Original and Only Author of the Glorious Quran.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
