Is Qur'an the Word of God?
The Qur’an is indeed the Word of God. Here
are eight reasons :

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
was physically incapable to write the Qur’an.
History has him as an illetrate man who could

5. Prophecy.
The Qur’an speaks prophetically, detailing
what the future holds. Then the future unfolds
exactly as foretold. Who could author such a
book?
6. Science.
The Qur’an draws attention to a wide range of
physical phenomena in order to teach moral
lessons. The statements were not meant to
teach science. Yet modern scientists are
amazed at the accuracy of these statements.
For example, the Qur’an said things about the
