Putting plainly: The Holy Qur’an is God’s own message to his creation. God, in there, is communicating directly with the best of His creation i.e. Us – “Humans”.
Let me begin: In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
Exalted then is Allah (the-one-God), the True King! [20:115]
The revelation of the Book — there is no doubt about it — is from the Lord of the worlds. [32:3]
This is a Book which We have revealed to thee, full of blessings, that they may reflect over its verses, and that those gifted with understanding may take heed. [38:30]
In the Holy Qur’an, God directly addresses US and narrates, as reminder, the history of this planet detailing the ways of past prophets and their people; He in a very clear manner relates stories of the truthful and the sinful, of the believers and the disbelievers, etc. In his message He has very clearly specified certain things that are haraam (forbidden) and halaal (permissible).
These are verses of the clear Book. We have revealed it… that you may understand. We narrate unto thee the most beautiful narration by revealing to thee this Qur’an, though thou wast, before this, of those not possessed of requisite knowledge. [12:2-4]
Allah desires to make clear to you, and guide you to, the paths of those before you, and to turn to you in mercy. And Allah is All- Knowing, Wise. [4:27]
This Book contains clear evidences for mankind and is a guidance and a mercy for a people who possess firm faith. [45:21]
Now, let us try reading… THE FINAL BOOK OF UNIVERSAL LAW:
أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم
Transliteration: A’udhu billahi minash shaitanir rajim
Meaning: I seek refuge with Allah from Satan, the accursed.
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
Meaning: In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

Qur’an is to supposed to steer believers on the right path;
to explain them the correct order of lives;
it teaches ways to distinguish between the right and the wrong, and it define morals.
It elucidates how to judge between conflicts,
details distribution of wealth amongst family members,
describes sin – its reasons and punishment,
details out the rewards for good deeds – the Gardens of Paradise,
clearly elucidate the roles and responsibilities of ours as a child, parent, sibling, leader, king or whatever role that comes in the category of us humans.
Allah, the one-God, says in [Ch. 20:Vs. 100-102]: Thus do We relate to thee the tidings of what has happened before. And We have given thee from Us a Reminder. Whoso turns away from it will surely bear a heavy burden on the Day of Resurrection, Abiding thereunder; and evil will the burden be to them on the Day of Resurrection,
Thus have We revealed to thee the Qur’an …that thou mayest warn them of the Day of Gathering whereof there is no doubt: A party will be in the Garden, and a party in the blazing Fire. [42:8]

Allah says about the Qur’an: If we had sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, thou wouldst certainly have seen it humbled and rent asunder for fear of Allah. (Ch.59:V.22)
[4:27-28] Allah desires to make clear to you, and guide you to, the paths of those before you, and to turn to you in mercy.
Based on the beauties, verities and unlimited treasures, the Holy Qur’an is a perennial miracle. The Holy Prophet (saw) once said:
‘Before me, every Prophet was given a miracle and I have been given the permanent miracle of the Qur’an till the Hour is established, so I hope that my followers will be more in number than all the other Messengers’ as my miracle will last till the Day of Resurrection, and it is a Glorious Book; when anyone reads it, even if he is a pagan, he is convinced that it is produced by none but by the Creator of the heavens and the earth.’ (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 1)
The Promised Messiah(as) has said:
‘The clear miracle of the Holy Qur’an which can manifest itself to every people and by presenting which we can silence every one, whether an Indian, or a Persian or a European or an American, is the unlimited treasury of insights and verities and wisdoms, which are expounded in every age according to its need and stand as armed soldiers to refute the thinking of every age. If the Holy Qur’an had been limited in its verities and insights it would not have amounted to a perfect miracle. Beauty of composition is not a matter the miraculous nature of which can be appreciated by every literate and illiterate person. The clear miracle of the Holy Qur’an is the unlimited insights and fine points which it comprises…Bear it in mind that the miracle of unlimited insights and verities which are contained in the Holy Qur’an has accomplished more in every age than has the sword.’ [Izalah-I-Auham; Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 3, pp.305-320]
Given all these wonderful names and special qualities of the Holy Qur’an and many others, Promised Messiah(as) wrote:
‘The Qur’an was sent down for the purpose of making the human race one flock and one nation. And now conditions have been created in which different peoples shall be united into one great nation…All this has been foretold in the Holy Qur’an which says that it has been sent to all the peoples of the world.’ (Chashma-i‑Ma’rifat, p.68)
Dr. Abdus Salam, the Ahmadi Muslim Nobel Laureate in Physics explained:
“Seven hundred and fifty verses of the Holy Qur’an – (almost one eighth of the Book) – exhort believers to study Nature, to reflect, to make the best use of reason in their search for the ultimate and to make the acquiring of knowledge and scientific comprehension part of the community’s life.”
All praise belongs to Allah Who has sent down the Book to His servant and has not put therein any crookedness. He has made it a guardian, that it may give warning of a grievous chastisement from Him, and that it may give the believers who do good deeds the glad tidings that they shall have a good reward, Wherein they shall abide for ever. [18:2, 3 & 4]
And, surely, We have explained in various ways in this Qur’an, for the good of mankind, all kinds of similitudes, but of all things man is most contentious. [18:55]
If every ocean becomes ink for the words of my Lord, surely, the ocean would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even though We brought the like thereof as further help. [18:110]

These are verses of the clear Book [The Holy Qur’an] They have, indeed, treated it as a lie, but soon there will come to them the tidings of that at which they mocked. In that there is a Sign indeed; but most of these would not believe. [26:3-9]
