Books play significant role in moulding one's character. They broaden ohe's view and open new ways. I have read a lot of books in my life. The books of great writers like Shakespeare. Thomas Hardy, Wordsworth, Naseem Hijazi influenced my life much, But the book which brought revolution in my life and my ideas is the Holy Quran. It is the most sacred book. It means "reading, lecture, recitation or that which should be read". For more than thirteen centuries it has guided humanity and till the end of the world it will remain the last message of God. This great books was revealed to Hazrat Muhammad S.A.W, the last prophet of God.
The Holy Quran is written in purest and most perfect form of Arabic. It has about 77,640 words and is divided into chapters and verses. There are 30 chapters and 114 Suras which are114 in all. The shorter suras cover mostly the period of Hazrat Muhammad S.A.W stay in Mecca and the larger ones mostly his stay in Madina.
The Opening chapter of the Holy Quran is very short having six lines. We, Muslims repeat it several times a day. It is called the Fathia, That is, the preface or introduction. It at once strike the innermost feeling of a true Muslim, and he cannot do anything evil or bad if he catches its spirit. It is also a prayer.
Islam is a complete code of life, and they Holy Quran is its code book. The Holy Quran tells us about the ways of living in the world. It almost covers every sphere of life. It tells us about religion, politics, economics and tackling of daily matter. In addition to that it is a great source of scientific knowledge. It is no denying the fact that the origin of the modern science is in the Holy Quran. The Theories which the scientists are offering today, have been stated in the Holy Quran thirteen centuries ago.
In short, the Holy Quran is the best book of the world has ever seen. It is my favourite book
