It is common knowledge that the first word of the Quran that was brought down upon the Holy Prophet (PBUH) by Allah in the caves of Hira and was ordered to read by Gibrael was “Iqra”. In its simplest sense the word means ‘read’. Allah chose to send down the word “read” as the first one of the Quran. The beauty of this gesture by Allah is something to think about. When Allah sent down this word, he not only meant the Holy Prophet (PBUH) to read, but also meant him to understand the vastness of the little word. The word Iqra.
