Sheikh ibn Salih al-Uthaymeen - The Qur'an is the Speech of Allah
The methodology of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah is that the Qur'an is the revealed speech of Allah, not created. From Him it began, and to Him it will return. He actually spoke with it, making Jibreel responsible for descending with it and revealing it upon the heart of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). Both the Qur'an and Sunnah prove this belief.
From the proofs of the Qur'an is the statement of Allah (the Exalted): And if anyone of the Mushrikoon seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the speech of Allah. (Qur'an 9:6)
The "speech of Allah" here means the Qur'an. Another proof is His (Exalted is He) statement: A blessed Book which we have revealed to you that they might reflect on its verses and that those of understanding would be reminded. (Qur'an 38:29)
And His saying: The trustworthy spirit (Jibreel) has brought it down upon your heart, that you may be one of the warners - in a clear Arabic language. (Qur'an 26:193-195)
