How is the Quran Divided?

The holy book can be divided into four main topics that help grasp the information more easily. 

1. TOHEED – Which refers to the UNITY of Allah SWT, and His unique nature as the one and only creator who has no associates or partners. For man’s success on earth, in his grave and in the hereafter, it is essential to believe in he ONENESS of Allah in his nature and being, as he is, with all his attributes and qualities, without any partners. He is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. There is none besides Allah who has the knowledge of all things eternally or to be aware of and see everything simultaneously and unceasingly. 

2. PROPHETHOOD – This is the next topic about which the Quran clearly states that we must believe in Muhammad PBUH as the final messenger of Allah SWT. It is obligatory and essential to accept whatever the Prophet PBUH has brought. 

3. CRITERIA OF RIGHT AND WRONG – This topic concerns the DO’S and DON’TS of this world such as what is permissible to eat and what is not to gain the pleasure of Allah. Similarly which deeds are prohibited and which not, to gain Allah’s pleasure. 

4. CONDITIONS AFTER DEATH – This is the fourth topic of the Quran and has been referred to in Surah Al-Zilzaal which discusses life after death, the day of judgement and the conditions of the day of judgement.
