Qur’an: The living literary miracle
The greatest miracle in Islam is the Qur’an. It is divine in nature and irreplicable, having been preserved over millennia. This unit will guide students through some major concepts that illustrate the Qur’an’s miraculous nature and why it is the word of God. By the end of the unit, students will find that the Qur’an’s revelation and compilation fit the highest markers of historical accuracy.

When Allah speaks
This lesson begins by exploring the barriers to establishing the Qur’an as a literary miracle. After this exploration, students will learn about the nature of miracles in Islam as a prelude to understanding and appreciating the Qur’an as a literary, inimitable miracle.
The irreplicable masterpiece
Students will explore how the Qur’an is and will continue to be a living, literary miracle until the end of time. This lesson explores this claim on three bases: the historical circumstances of its revelation, its internal structure, and its substantive material.
After gaining an understanding of the Qur’an’s miraculous nature in the first two lessons, students will next explore how the Qur’an is historically verifiable through mutawaatir reports. Students will walk away with strengthened conviction in the Qur’an’s historical authenticity.
