The Holy Quran is definitely the wisest book on the Earth. It contains answers and advises for any issues of human life. It shows the correct way to health and well being. Every Muslims should learn and read Quran. This is the way to get the success in all walks of life. Moreover, Quran helps to understand of actual Muslims’ duties and responsibilities in worldly life.
Below I collected five most unique Instructions in the Holy Quran which every person should know to understand our world:
Use Own Mind and Knowledge
“Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf and dumb who do not use reason.”
Allah invites everyone to use their mind and knowledge, think a lot about the world and take control of their own issues. If we do not use our critical thinking, we are like deaf and dumb. Moreover, Allah said that any facts have to be researched and analyzed and only then we can make our own decision about its authenticity.
“And do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge. Indeed, the hearing, the sight and the heart – about all those [one] will be questioned.”
Prevailing Viewpoint is Not Always True
“O you who have believed, indeed many of the scholars and the monks devour the wealth of people unjustly and avert [them] from the way of Allah. And those who hoard gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah – give them tidings of a painful punishment.”
(Quran, 9: 34)
The meaning of the Ayat is that we should not take every existing social idea without deep thinking. We should be very cautious before adoption any innovation. Any viewpoint can be taken only after full consideration of the idea, its consequences and if it is consistent with the teachings of Allah. Each person is responsible for his (or her) own thinking and actions. There will not be excuse from punishment in the hereafter that someone just followed mislead of society.
“And they will say, “Our Lord, indeed we obeyed our masters and our dignitaries, and they led us astray from the [right] way.”
Social Equality and Justice in Daily Life
“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah , even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.”
The book of Allah is the best guidance in the issue of maintaining social fairness and impartiality in all matters. Allah gave us the strict rules concerning wealth distribution even into one family. Following them allows mankind to build really fair society.
Islam is not Only in the Mind it is also Need the Action
“Do the people think that they will be left to say, “We believe” and they will not be tried?”
The live of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) have to be an example to follow for any Muslims in the world. All Muslims have to desire to have the patience, moderation, thankfulness, and good manners like our beloved Prophet (pbuh). In this way we can realize Islamic principles through our deeds.
It is Never Late
“And those who strive for Us – We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed, Allah is with the doers of good.”
Allah is always willing to accept those who repented and decided to stand on the path of truth and goodness.
