Gems of the Promised Messiah & Imam Mahdi (as) – The Lasting Blessings of the Holy Prophet (sa)

The teaching of the Holy Qur’an still possesses the same influence and the same blessings as before. Another example of this, which is worthy of mention, is that nothing is known about the whereabouts of the Gospel. Even the Christians themselves are faced with difficulties in determining the origins of the Gospel, its original language, and where it is now. However, the Holy Qur’an has always been protected. Not even a single word or dot can be altered. It has been guarded to the extent that huffaz [memorisers] of the Holy Qur’an, numbering in the hundreds of thousands, are present in every country and nation, and there is complete consensus between them. They continue to memorise the Holy Qur’an and recite it to others. Now reflect, are these blessings of the Holy Prophet (sa) not ever-living? Do they not prove that the Holy Prophet (sa) lives?

Hence, whether in view of the protection of the Holy Qur’an; or whether in light of the hadith on the coming of reformers at the turn of each century for the revival of religion; or whether on account of his blessings and influence, which continue even to this day; it is established that the Holy Prophet (sa) lives.
