Salman Al-Farsi converted to Islam in Medina after 13 years of the revelation of the noble Quran (i.e. he did not even witness the first period in Makkah!), yet one can see many Iranian nationalists, and the major devils among them who spread a lie that even a donkey would refuse to accept, namely:”Salman Al-Farsi (RA) invented Islam for the Prophet (SAWS)!”
Salman Al-Farsi Met the Prophet Muhammad in Medina,a time when roughly 2/rds of the Quran Had been Revealed.
Also the Quran is a Arabic Masterpeice.
Dr. Maurice Bucaille said in his book “The Bible, the Qur’an and Science”, published by the American Trust Publications 1979:
3. The 114 sûrahs of the Qur’ân fall into seven groups. The first group comes to an end at sûrah 5, the second at sûrah 9, the third at sûrah 24, the fourth at sûrah 33, the fifth at sûrah 49, the sixth at sûrah 66, and the seventh at sûrah 114. Each group contains one or more Makkan sûrahs followed by one or more Madînan sûrahs of the same cast. Like individual sûrahs or each pair of sûrahs, each group has a central theme which runs through all its sûrahs, knitting them into a distinct body. In each group, the themes of the other groups also occur but as subsidiary themes.
4. Each group logically leads to the next, and thus all the groups become variations on the basic theme of the Qur’ân, which is: ‘Allah’s call to man to adopt the right path’.
in Arabic that a person may refer to himself by the pronoun nahnu (we) for respect or glorification. He may also use the word ana (I), indicating one person, or the third person huwa (he). All three styles are used in the Qur’an, where Allaah addresses the Arabs in their own tongue.
Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted, sometimes refers to Himself in the singular, by name or by use of a pronoun, and sometimes by use of the plural, as in the phrase (interpretation of the meaning): ‘Verily, We have given you a manifest victory” [al-Fath 48:1], and other similar phrases. But Allaah never refers to Himself by use of the dual, because the plural refers to the respect that He deserves, and may refer to His names and attributes, whereas the dual refers to a specific number (and nothing else), and He is far above that.” (Al-‘Aqeedah al-Tadmuriyyah by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah, p. 75
The surah repeats a single account several times, like that of Musa (Moses) and Fir’awn (Pharaoh); Nuh (Noah); and Adam’s creation. This is done to connect and reconcile the subject with the details. This might also be to bring out the miraculous nature of the Qur’an and its eloquence. Knowledge of Arabic is required to fully appreciate this aspect of the Qur’an. All the stories come in a setting which differs from one place to another, according to the demands of the situation. This repetition has several important wisdoms:
a) To explain the importance and significance of the subject which the story deals with in order to firmly settle their lessons in the souls, e.g. the account of Moses and Pharaoh revolves around the clash between truth and falsehood, light and darkness, the allies of the most Merciful and the allies of the Devil.
b) To bring out and establish the miraculous nature of the Qur’an, as well as its peak of eloquence by bringing forth the same meaning in different ways and styles, such that the repetition does not seem repetitious! It requires a sound grasp of the Arabic language to fully understand this point. Consequently, all translations fail to convey the miraculous nature and the eloquence of the Qur’an.
c) The stories are narrated for a specific purpose. Some relevant details are mentioned at one place while some others are added or subtracted at other places. An example of this can be seen in the stories of the prophets in surah Hud which are repeated again in surah Al-Qamar, but with a new and different style and manner such that the reader might think that the stories and the events were not known to him before!
