Al-Qur'an the noble book has 59 names because of its glory


Other names from the Qur'an show its glory in Islam. As a guide to the life of Muslims, there is another name for the Qur'an which contains a lot of wisdom. These names cannot be separated from the glory of the Qur'an as a miracle from Allah SWT.

HunafaJurnalStudiaIslamika stated that the glory of the Qur'an according to the scholars is determined by several aspects.

For example, seen from the structure of language, the information provided about hidden events such as stories about previous prophets, and information about future events.

The glory of the Qur'an is also reinforced by the existence of another name that has a great meaning, according to the many lessons contained in it

One of the wisdoms of always reading the Qur'an is to get a reward and a lot of good, to get intercession on the Day of Resurrection.


Differences in Opinion of Scholars About Other Names of the Qur'an

In Islam, there are several noble things that have many names and were given by Allah SWT and also His Messenger.

In addition to Allah SWT and also the prophet, there are also other names from the Qur'an, Al Fatihah, and also the name of the Day of Judgment that comes from the Qur'an and also hadith.

Many scholars who collect and calculate other names from the Qur'an. However, there is no agreement on how many other names the Qur'an actually has. Some of them are:

Imam AzZarkasyi in his book Al Burhan fi 'Ulumil Qur'an quotes the opinion of Al Harali (died 647 H), that the number of other names from the Qur'an is not more than 90 names.

Imam AzZarkasyi also quoted the opinion of AbulMa'aliAzizi bin 'Abdul Malik, that another name for the Qur'an is 55 names.

Imam AsSuyuthi in his book Al Itqon fi 'Ulumil Qur'an also quotes an opinion which states that the name of the Qur'an is 55.

Sholih bin Ibrahim al-Bulaihi in his work Al Huda wal Bayan fi Asmail Quran, argues that the Qur'an has 46 names

Al Fairuz Abadi in his book BasoirDzawitTamyiz fi LatoifilKitabil 'Aziz, mentions that the Qur'an has 100 names.

The disagreement is because there are differences of opinion regarding the grouping, which is another name for the Qur'an and which is only the nature of the Qur'an.

Apart from these differences, what is agreed upon by scholars is that the name and nature of the Qur'an is tauqiffiyah.

That is, the name and nature of the Qur'an must be based on the Qur'an and the hadith of the prophet, and it is not justified to make it up yourself.


Among other names from the Qur'an are:

1. Quran (Reading / Collecting)

This name is the most important name and is often used by Allah SWT in many descriptions, for example in:

ا لۡنَا لَيۡكَ لۡقُرۡءَانَ لٗا

(Innānaḥnunazzalnā 'alaikal-qur`ānatanzīlā)

Meaning: "Indeed, We have sent down the Quran to you (O Muhammad) gradually." (Surat al-Insaan: 23)

There are many explanations from scholars regarding the meaning of the word Qur'an, one of which is from Shaykh Muhammad bin Solih Al 'Utsaimin in his work Usul fi Tafsir.

This means that it can be something that is read (reading), and also something that collects (collectors) which are collectors of news and laws of Allah SWT.

4. Al-Furqan (Differentiating)
