God Sent the Qur'an Down Progressively

Muhammad Recited it over a Prolonged Period, for he was a Warner to his People before the Severe Punishment

53:56 - 57, Qur'an
This Prophet is a warner like the former warners.  The Approaching Day has approached.

42:7, Qur'an
And thus We have revealed to you [Muhammad] an Arabic Qur'an that you may warn the Mother of Cities [Mecca] and those around it and warn of the Day of Assembly, about which there is no doubt.

25:32, Qur'an
[But] those who disbelieve say, "Why was the Qur'an not revealed to him all at once?"  Thus it is that We may strengthen thereby your heart.  And We have spaced it distinctly.

9:126 - 127, Qur'an
Do they not see that they are tried every year once or twice but then they do not repent nor do they remember?  And whenever a surah is revealed, they look at each other, [saying], "Does anyone see you?" and then they dismiss themselves.  God has dismissed their hearts because they are a people who do not understand.

Isaiah 28:13, Torah
[For] the word of the Lord was to them precept upon preceptprecept upon preceptline upon lineline upon linehere a little, and there a littlethat they might go, and fall backward, and be broken and snared and taken.

17:106, Qur'an
[Thus it is] a Qur'an which We have separated [by intervals] that you might recite it to the people over a prolonged period.  And We have sent it down progressively -

36:6 - 7, Qur'an
That you may warn a people whose forefathers were not warned, so they are unaware.  Already the word has come into effect upon most of them, so they do not believe.

46:9, Qur'an
[So] say, "I am not something original among the messengers, nor do I know what will be done with me or with you.  I only follow that which is revealed to me, and I am not but a clear warner."

34:28, Qur'an
[For] We have not sent you [Muhammad] except comprehensively to mankind as a bringer of good tidings and a warner.  But most of the people do not know.

34:46, Qur'an
[So] say, "I only advise you of one thing - that you stand for God, seeking truth in pairs and individually, and then give thought."  There is not in your companion any madness.  He is only a warner to you before a severe punishment.

22:42 - 44, Qur'an
And if they deny you [Muhammad], - so, before them, did the people of Noah and 'Aad and Thamud deny, and the people of Abraham and the people of Lot and the inhabitants of Midian.  And Moses was denied, so I prolonged enjoyment for the disbelievers; then I seized them, and how [terrible] was My reproach.

10:102, Qur'an
So do they wait except for like [what occurred in] the days of those who passed on before them?  Say, "Then wait; indeed, I am with you among those who wait."


The Qur'an is Distinct Verses Preserved in the Breasts of those who were Given Knowledge

And We had Revealed to Separators
Who have Made the Qur'an into Portions

75:16 - 19, Qur'an
Move not your tongue with it, to hasten with recitation of [the Qur'an].  Indeed, upon Us is its collection [in your heart] and [to make possible] its recitation.  So when We have recited it [through Gabriel], then follow its recitation.  Then upon Us is its clarification [to you].

29:48 - 49, Qur'an
And you did not recite before it any scripture, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand.  Otherwise the falsifiers would have had [cause for] doubt.  Rather, [the Qur'an] is distinct verses [preserved] within the breasts of those who have been given knowledge.

35:31 - 32, Qur'an
And that which We have revealed to you of the Book is the truth, confirming what was before it.  Indeed, God, of His servants, is Acquainted and Seeing.  Then We caused to inherit the Book those We have chosen of Our servants; and among them is he who wrongs himself, and among them is he who is moderate, and among them is he who is foremost in good deeds by permission of God.  That [inheritance] is what is the great bounty.

2:121, Qur'an
[And] those to whom We have given the Book recite it with its true recital.  They [are the ones who] believe in it.

18:27, Qur'an
[So] recite, what has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord.  There is no changer of His words, and never will you find in other than Him a refuge.

15:89 - 91, Qur'an
And say, "Indeed, I am the clear warner"just as We had revealed [scriptures] to the separators who have made the Qur'an into portions.
