The way to the Qur’an, A new Worls Awaits you

Sep 26, 2007

 

by Khurram Murad

 

The New world that Awaits You: As you come to the Qur'an, you come to a new world. No other venture in your life can be so momentous and crucial, so blissful and rewarding, as your journey to and through the Qur'an. It is a journey that will take you through the endless joys and riches of the words that your Creator and Lord has sent to you and all of humankind. Here you will find a world of untold treasures of knowledge and wisdom to guide you on the pathways of life, to mould your thoughts and actions. In it you will find deep insights to enrich you and steer you along the right course. From it you will receive a radiant light to illumine the deeper reaches of your soul. Here you will encounter profound emotions, warmth to melt your heart and bring tears running down your cheeks. It is crucial for you because, as you travel through the Qur'an, at every step you will be summoned to choose, and to commit to Allah. To read the Qur'an is nothing less than to live the Qur'an willingly, sincerely, devotedly, and totally. The outcome of your entire life depends on how you heed the call given by Allah. The journey is therefore decisive for your existence, for humankind, for the future of human civilization. A hundred new worlds lie in its verses. Whole centuries are involved in its moments. Know, then, that it is the Qur'an, and only the Qur'an, which can lead you on and on to success and glory in this world and in the world to come.

 

What is the Qur'an?
It is beyond man's power to comprehend, or to describe, the greatness and importance of what the Qur'an holds for him. Yet, to begin with, you must have some idea of what it is and what it means to you, and such that you are inspired to immerse the whole of yourself in the Qur'an, in total commitment, complete dedication and ceaseless pursuit as it demands. The Qur'an is Allah's greatest blessing or you. It is the fulfilment of His promise to Adam AS and his descendants: 'there shall come to you guidance from Me, and whatsoever follows My Guidance no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow'(al Baqarah 2:38). It is the only weapon your frail existence as you struggle against the forces of evil and temptation in this world. It is the only means to overpower your fear and anxiety. It is the only 'light' (nur), as you grope in the darkness with which to find your way to success and salvation. It is the only healing (shifa) for your inner sickness, as well as the social ills that may surround you. It is the constant reminder (dhikr) of your true nature and destiny, of your station, your duties, and your reward. It was brought down by one who is powerful and trustworthy in the heavens- the heart of the Prophet Muhammad, SAW. It tells you of your creator, of His attributes, of how He rules, and how you should relate to Him, to yourself, to your fellow many other existences.

 

The rewards that await you here are surely many, incurring manifold and the hereafter, but what awaits you at the end of the road promises Allah in the Hadith qudsi, 'the eye has seen not, nor the ear heard, nor the heart of man ever conceived'. And, adds Abu Hurayra' RA no human being can imagine what joys are being kept hidden for them in or all that they did' (Bukhari, Muslim)
