Indeed, it has sweetness, and indeed it is adorned with beauty and charm. Surely, its first part is fruitful and its last part is abundant.
It conquers all speech and remains unconquered! It shatters and destroys all that has come before it!
Those were the timeless words of Al-Waleed ibn Al-Mugheerah when he was asked by the mushrikeen of Quraysh to describe the speech of Allah.
روى ابن ماجة وأحمد عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رضي الله عنه قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : ( إِنَّ لِلَّهِ أَهْلِينَ مِنْ النَّاسِ ) قَالُوا : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ، مَنْ هُمْ ؟
(قال: أهل القرآن هم أهل الله و خاصته)
The Messenger of Allah sallalahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “The people of the Qur’an are the people of Allah and His special servants.” (An-Nisa’i, Ibn Majah, and Al-Hakim)
