Nuzul Quran Day.. it's holiday..

It's holiday today.. a celebration of Nuzul Quran day.. Now, what is Nuzul Quran? and why is it celebrated among the muslims around the world? Let's see what it means.
Another word for Nuzul Al-Quran is ‘the revelation of the al-quran’.

NUZUL - means descent or shift, i.e. shift from the top to the ground.

AL-QURAN -Â means reading or collection. it is said to be reading because the al-quran is for reading by humans. it can also be said to be collection because in the al-quran there are verses collected to explain various matters which covers tauhid, ibadat, jinayat, muamalat, munakahat and so on.

Nuzul Al-Quran falls on the 17th day of the Ramadan month (which is today). It was on this day of the Muslim Calendar that the first verse of the Al-Quran was first revealed to Prophet Muhammad, hence the celebration of Nuzul Al-Quran.
