Allah has also given the Qur’an many descriptions in His verses and amongst them are:

  • Noor (Light),

Allah the Exalted said, in describing His Book:

Allah has sent down the most beautiful of speech, a Book, (parts of it) resembling (others) oft-repeated. The skins of those who fear their Lord shiver from it. Then their skins and their hearts soften to the remembrance of Allah
