Quran is the Holy Book of Muslim people. To read Holy Quran, Muslims have to first gain knowledge about Noorani Qaida. The question that comes into every person’s mind is “Why it was essential to introduce the Noorani Qaida?” This is because, in the time of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W) and his companions, there were no such things as Noorani Qaida. So why it was necessary to create this Noorani Qaida. The answer is simple, many non-Arabic people who accepted Islam did not know about the Arabic language, and it was hard for them to understand the Holy Quran. So, to resolve this issue, Molvi Noor Muhammad Ludhyanvi first created and published the Nooran Quran. He was from India, and it was named after him.
