As Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi wa BarakatuhuExplanation:
وَأُلْقِيَ السَّحَرَةُ سَاجِدِينَ
قَالُوا آمَنَّا بِرَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ
رَبِّ مُوسَىٰ وَهَارُونَ
“The magicians fell into prostration and said we believe in the Lord of the Worlds,
the Lord of Moses and Aaron.”
(Surah Al-A’raf 7:120-122)
When Pharaoh accused Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) of being a magician, he brought the best magicians in Egypt to challenge him and prove him false. However these magicians, being the experts, knew the limitations of magic and human ability so they immediately recognized what Moses had to be miracles from God and instantly realized that he was indeed a true prophet. It is for this reason that they believed immediately without hesitation when they witnessed the miracle for themselves.
In every era, Allah sent prophets with miracles suitable to the expertise of the people of their time. Just like Moses came with a miracle which the magicians could see was beyond human capabilities, the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) too came with a miracle suitable for the experts from his time onwards.
The Qur’an is a literary miracle as was proven by the experts of Arabic during the prophet’s lifetime. It is also however a miracle in a variety of other ways including the universal nature of its teachings, its explanation of natural phenomenon and its insights into human psychology. Indeed, the Qur’an has something for everybody to see that it is a miracle from God. This is what makes it the ultimate miracle.
