Q.

In Islamic Mythology Qran was revealed to Muhmmad through angel Gabriel over period of 23 years but how it was written if the time period was 23 years ? Most of the religious fables have some symbolic and iconographic meaning so what is significance of 23 ? Also one unanswered question is why it took 23 years to reveal ?
I hope people answer this positively as they answer questions on other religious books such as Ramayan and Mahabharat no foul language and abuses please.

BN.. This is very interesting question.. If I have understood your question well.. you want to know why it took 23 years for the Islamic revealition. If my understanding is correct.. then the answer follows :

When the SuperSoul enrich the Soul on Assignment.. it gives energies that reflects in the understanding and the environment at that time. Prophet Mohammad also had that enlighenment and he conveyed the message that he received it from the SuperSoul.. It is a complete transfer of Energy i.e. Magnetic Power from SuperSoul to the Soul who has given an assignment.. The words conveyed by Muhammad is a message of God.. and it cud have taken 23 years to convey the Message..

Quran I presume is written quite later of that Period.

Sir , it is interesting question and somewhat contradictory question . If Islam is myth then there is no need to ask questions on myth as answers will be also myths .
Quran strongly rejects certain mentalities that are driven by myths, illusions, absurdities, ignorance, blind imitation of others, assumption (conjecture), prejudice, whims and desires. In fact, Allah in the Quran confirms that most people on earth have gone astray because they follow assumption, conjecture and ignorance. Allah says:
And if you obey most of those upon the earth, they will mislead you from the way of Allah. They follow not except assumption, and they are not but falsifying (out of ignorance, conjecture and assumption). (Quran, 6:116)
Second part of Question : Yes it is true it took 23 years to complete the mission to educate mankind about God's will and practically demonstrated by Mohammad pbuh .. AS regards to God , God knows past present and future at same moment of time but since mankind is restr ...more

Great genious ,your question is wrong since there is nothing like Islamic mythology . Islamic scriptures ,it's revelations ,it's authenticity , it is in original language ,it's history is accepted by non muslim historians and great critics of Islam . There is no person in entire history Like Prophet mohammad pbuh whose almost entire lifetime activities are recorded and accepted , It's holy mosque's are standing firm . it's original scriptures are still preserved . Prophet's pbuh sayings are preserved .
His grave , his way of worship ,his traditions are all practiced by muslims around a billion or more . muslims worship and follow Islam according to mannerism of Prophet . Muslims practice ,do Hajj , fast ,give charity ,etc all as per manners of Prophet pbuh . Even his manners are preserved
FIRST QURAN IS RECITATION . QURAN IS MIRACULOUS . IT IS EASY TO MEMORISE . THERE ARE OVER MILLIONS WHO MEMORISE . EVEN DURING PROPHET'S TIME IT GOT MEMORISED AND LATER ON WRITTEN . since it is mem ...more
