Assalam u Alaikum warahmatullah,
In his introduction to ‘Tafhim al-Qur’an’, al-Mawdudi (rahimahullah) reminds us:
“the Qur’an is neither a book of abstract theories and cold doctrines which the reader can grasp while seated in a cozy armchair, nor is it merely a religious book like other religious books whose secrets can be grasped in seminaries and oratories. Rather, it is the blueprint and guidebook of a message, of a mission, of a movement. As soon as this Book was revealed, it drove a quiet, kind-hearted man from his isolation and seclusion, and placed him upon the battlefield of life to challenge a world that had gone astray. It inspired him to raise his voice against falsehood, and pitted him in a grim struggle against those carrying the banner of disbelief, or disobedience to Allah, of deviance and error. One after another, it sought out everyone who had a pure and noble soul, gathering them together under the flag of the Messenger. It also infuriated all those who, by their nature, were bent on evil and drove them to wage war against the bearers of Truth. This is the Book which inspired and directed that great movement which began with the preaching of a message by an individual, and continued for no fewer than twenty-three years, until the Kingdom of God was truly established on Earth.”
This is the true nature of Quran. It creeps slowly into the soul to refresh our perceptions and actions. It guides, motivates, teaches and inspires. Each and every Ayah, when pondered upon deeply reveals us to a new world of ideas and brings about a change from within.
This blog here was initiated to share some portions of the Quranic lessons that I attend, share my own reflections about Imaan and Quran and other beneficial stuff I find on the world wide web. This is just a small gesture of online dawah Insha Allah! I hope it is of benefit and is a Sadqa e jaria for me Insha Allah!
May Allah accept our efforts…. Ameen!
