By the Spiritual Leader of the Salawatia Mission of Ghana, Sheihu Hussain Rashid Salwat QUTUB AZ-ZAMAAN

I bear testimony that there is none worthy of worship but Allah. I also bear testimony that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah. May the Peace and Blessing of Allah be upon him and his household. I greet you with the Islamic greetings of peace and tranquility specially meant for people like you who have successfully gone through the ordeal of fasting, for the duration of a period of one full month of the Lunar moon of Ramadhan.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, throughout history, it has been observed that Prophets were sent with miracles that reflected the society and knowledge of the people they were sent to.

More than four thousand miracles are on record which were preformed by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Unlike the miracles of previous Prophets which only had applicability to a limited time, up to date, the Quran, the final Divine Document given to the last Prophet, is still a relevant miracle for humanity and will remain so to the last day. We are in a sophisticated age of science and technology and of profound knowledge both local and reason. Yet with all the advancement in every sphere of life, all the principles and the scientific data conform to that of the Quran.

Allah says in Quran 17:89. And We have explained to man, in this Quran, every kind of similitude: yet the greater part of men refuse it and are ingratitude! He also says in Quran 16:89. …and We have sent to you a Book explaining all things, a Guide, a Mercy, and Glad Tidings to Muslims. In Quran 12:111, He says The Quran is not a tale invented, but a confirmation of what went before it and a detailed exposition of all things, and a Guide and a Mercy to the believers. One example of the miraculous nature of the Quran is the provision contained in it of the preservation of the Body of Pharaoh, in the Quran 10: 91-92, it is stated thus, “We shall preserve your body that you may be a sign to those after you”. At the time of revelation of this verse, and even centuries after wards nobody knew that the body of Pharaoh is still preserved. But it has been discovered only recently, and is preserved in the museum of Cairo.

 

Another classical example and a demonstration of the superiority and miraculous nature of the Quran is giving a historical account of its own revelation. This assertion can be much more appreciated in the perspective of numerology;

  1. In the entire Quran the phrase “ليلة القدر ” is 3 times in the same chapter.
  2. There are nine 9 letters in the pharase “ليلة القدر “.
  3. The product: 9 x 3 = 27 meaning the Quran was revealed on the 3rd of the 27th day of the 9th month of the Lunar Calendar, in Ramdhan.
  4.  The chapter has 30 words representing 30 days a month.

 

This is indeed a great miracle and can certainly not be by chance. The port ramp a perfect combination and arrangement, giving a perfect historical account of its own revelation.

The Prophet (SAW) is reported to have said that the miraculous nature of the Quran has no end, it is a Guide and a Mercy to the believers and offering Glad Tidings to Muslims. Nobody is guided without. Nobody succeeds in life here and the hereafter without it.

All these not withstanding, my dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, a non denominational church in Florida, USA, plans to host an international QURAN burn day on Saturday the 9th anniversary of September the 11th. We pray feverishly that the Almighty changes their mind. I pray for the prosperity, unity and above all, I pray for the safety of all Muslims throughout the world.

I pray for the Government of Ghana and all its functionaries. I pray for all the chiefs and people of Dagbon. I pray for all the chiefs and people of Ghana. I pray for the prosperity of our dear country. I pray for Peace to prevail throughout the entire world. I pray the Almighty Allah accept the fasting of all Muslims and reward us accordingly.    

I conclude by wishing you the best of Eid ul-Fitr celebrations. May Allah be with you all. Wa Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahamatul Lahi Ta’alaa Wabarakatuhu.
