For Quranic Studies and Researches
1419 H –1998 AD
The marvels of the holy Quran never come to an end. The holy Quran is God’s
words the meanings and miracles thereof never exhaust being the eternal
intellectual miracle. Whenever man gives rise to doubts, the holy Quran presents
the manifest proof.
Whereas the ancient moslem scholars talked about the rhetorical miracles of the
Holy Quran, the contemporary ones talk about other aspects of the miracles such
as the legislative, historical, scientific and mathematical miracles. Such
aspects and others made the efforts of the moslem of today in presenting the
proof easier. The mathematical miracle, for instance, can easily abolish the
false allegations of the orientalists as well as the doubt generators.
Nowadays, we can irrefutably prove through the mathematical inimitability that
the holy Quran neither increased nor decreased by any single letter. We can also
prove that the othmanic calligraphy of the holy Quran is divine inspiration i.e.
dictated by revelation to the prophet pbuh. This also applies to the order of
the chapters (surats) of the holy Quran. More importantly is that fact proves,
specially to the Arabs the prophecy of Mohammed pbuh, because mathematics are
facts easily understood by all peoples irrespective of their languages.
The individual efforts alone fell short of proving the inimitability of the holy
Quran. The issue is far beyond the capability of one center or more.
However, there should be an initiative or a first step. Hence, there came the
idea of establishing Noon Center for the Quranic Researches and Studies. No
matter what so modest the outset was, it is hoped, by Allah’s help and
blessings, this center will be the pioneer in Palestine and the area.
The center’s Objectives
A. Following-up and Developing the Miraculous Studies Particularly the
Every messenger of God should have evidence in support of his message. There is
no place for any evidence other than the miracle. The miracles of the messengers
of God were tangible and consequently enough as a proof at their times. All
Allah’s messages, which preceded Islam, were limited in time and place. When the
common and comprehensive message of Allah was revealed, the miracle had to be
intellectual so that it would be able to give the proof at any time even after
the departure of Prophet Mohammed pbuh.
The intellectual miracle goes up along with the promotion of human perception
and what man receives therefrom is proportionate to his understanding. There is
no doubt that people nowadays are more capable to evaluate the intellectual
miracle and they have better faculty for judgement and scrutiny.
Based on the above, we notice that researches in the Quranic inimitability are
still below the required standard and far beyond the capabilities of
contemporary man- Today, we can drink from the spring of this everlasting
B. Following-up the Studied Related to the Society and their Promotion
The Holy Quran is in the first place, a book of guidance. Human race has never
known throughout history such a book, which could bring about a great nation as
the Holy Quran did. Moreover, the effectiveness and impact are in progress. It
is beyond doubt that the contemporary publications to this effect are plentiful;
but we aspire to present studies that conform to the requirements of the
forthcoming period. Noon also hopes for taking part in rectifying the track of
the contemporary researches and studies as some studies are not free from false
or intended or not intended deviations.
C. Following up the studies in Quranic sciences especially the Quranic exegetics
Quranic sciences include, interalia, many issues related to the holy Quran such
as History, compiling the Holy Quran, its othmanic calligraphy, recitations and
the date of interpretation There are other researches associated with the
Islamic jurisprudence such as abrogation and inference. The Noon Center is
looking forward to present new and useful studies in this respect. Now, we can
enrich this science through the mathematical miracles outcome.
D. Communication and Cooperation with Scholars and Researchers and Stimulating
the Spirit of Research
Some recession in the intellectual and scientific activities predominates the
Holy Land. This is attributed to many factors among which is the continued
emigration of the scientific minds as well as the historical struggle emanating
from the fact that Palestine is a safeguarding land. Today, we can overcome
these challenges by assembling the scattered scientific capabilities and the
creation of a helpful and motivating atmosphere. This will, consequently enable
us to create an intellectual and effective establishment, which constitutes
inspiration to the Palestinian people, and communicates with its sister
establishments in the Islamic world. There is no doubt that the achievement of
this target will much help in realizing, by Allah’s will ,the other objectives.
Means and tools :
1. Establishing a library that includes all material related to the Quranic
studies and researches whether for reading, listening, or calculation in order
to be an easy term of reference and handy for the learners and the researchers
in the center and the vicinity.
2. Publishing the studies and researches brought out by the Center in various
available publishing means for the benefit of others and to give the scholars
the chance to criticize and give their observations thereat; thus, the Center
will be able to undertake the necessary development and enrichment.
3. Organizing workshops, seminars, lectures and conferences.
4. Cooperation with the universities and colleges specialized in the Quranic
studies for the sake of activating the performance and the publicity of benefit.
Work at the Center is oversighted by a ten-member aboard of trustees. The board
appoints the director of the center along with the administrative body.
Departments of work :
1. Department of Researches and studies.
2. Department of Public relations.
3. Department of Financial Matters.
4. Department of Information and References.
5. Department of Computer.
