During the Abbasid period, a Caliph (Al-Ma’mun) forced Ahmad Ibn Hanbal to admit wrongfully that the Qur’an was created by man. Ahmad Ibn Hanbal was one of the few scholars to refuse to back down to that Caliph & stood firm with the belief that the Qur’an WAS the speech of Allah!

Then one night Ahmad Ibn Hanbal had a dream in which he narrated, “I saw as if the Day of Judgment had been established, and everyone was brought to account. While I was standing, I was called for, so I proceeded until I stood in front of Allah as he asked to me, ‘O Ahmad, for what were you beaten?’ I replied, ‘On account of the Qur’an.‘ He asked, ‘And what is the Qur’an?‘ I replied, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You.‘ He asked, ‘How do you know?‘ I said, ‘Abdul-Razzaq narrated to me.

So Abdul-Razzaq was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked, ‘What do you say about the Qur’an?‘ He replied, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You,‘ so Allah asked, ‘How do you know?‘ He said, ‘Ma’mar narrated to me.

So Ma’mar was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked,What do you say about the Qur’an?‘ He replied, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You,‘ so Allah asked, ‘How do you know?‘ He said, ‘Az-Zuhree narrated to me.

So Az-Zuhree was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked, What do you say about the Qur’an?‘ He replied, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You,’ So Allah asked, ‘How do you know?’ He said, ‘Urwah narrated to me.

So Urwah was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked,What do you say about the Qur’an?’ He replied, ‘Your Words, O Allah, belonging to You,’ so Allah asked, ‘How do you know?’ He said, ‘A’isha Bint Abu Bakr narrated to me.

So A’isha was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked,What do you say about the Qur’an?’ She replied, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You,’ so Allah asked, ‘How do you know?’ She said, ‘Your Prophet Muhammad narrated to me.

So Muhammad (pbuh) was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked,What do you say about the Qur’an?’ He replied, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You,’ so Allah asked, ‘How do you know?’ The Prophet said, ‘Jibra’il narrated to me.

So Jibra’il was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked,What do you say about the Qur’an?’ He replied, ‘Your words, O Allah belonging to You,’ so Allah asked, ‘How do you know?’ He said, ‘Israfil narrated to me.

So Israfil was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked,What do you say about the Qur’an?’ He replied, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You,’ so Allah asked, ‘How do you know?’ He said, ‘I saw that in the Lawh-ul-Mahfooz (the Preserved Tablet).

So the Preserved Tablet was brought in front of Allah, and was asked, ‘O Lawh, what do you say about the Qur’an?’ And it said, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You.’ Then Allah asked, ‘From where has this come to you?’ And the Lawh said, ‘Such did the Qalam (the Pen) inscribe upon me.

So the Pen was brought to stand in front of Allah, and was asked, ‘O Qalam, what do you say about the Qur’an?’ The Qalam said, ‘Your words, O Allah, belonging to You.’ So Allah asked, ‘From where has this come to you?’ The Qalam said, ‘You dictated and I wrote!

Then Allah said, ‘The Qalam has spoken the truth. The Lawh has spoken the truth. Israfil has spoken the truth. Jibra’il has spoken the truth. Muhammad has spoken the truth. A’isha has spoken the truth. Urwah has spoken the truth. Az-Zuhri has spoken the truth. Ma’mar has spoken the truth. Abdur-Razzaq has spoken the truth. Ahmad Ibn Hanbal has spoken the truth. The Qur’an is MY Speech, it is not created!
