A minute of reflection - 1
Surah YUUNUS - 10 (JONAH)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Object of previous verse demands special attention. This content has been discussed at various places in Holy Qur’aan. Such kind of verse has passed in Surah ‘Al-Baqarah, in which, it has been manifested with explanation. Summary of all these verses is that there is one Religion in the world for the mankind, which was taught to the first Man and Prophet Adam (peace be upon him).
When the people marred that religion due to misunderstandings and for worldly benefits, Allah Almighty sent His Prophets (peace be upon them) for manifesting it again and gave Them His Scriptures. They (peace be upon them) caused to know the people and advised them, but passing of some time, the people changed the Instructions and then those were quite different.
Eventually, a time reached that the people of different countries created their separate religions, and tyranny, oppression and violence spread all around. Powerful people influenced the subordinate and the weak and made them own slaves. They began to enjoy their lives and deprived others of their even basic necessities. The helpless poor people used to take only that which the rich give them without arguing. In such circumstances, Muhammad (grace, blessing and peace be on Him) was appointed a Messengers of Allah Almighty for Guidance of the entire human beings of the world.
Allah Almighty arranged in this duration that the Original Religion should be saved until the Day of Resurrection. For this purpose, one ready-made Book, name of which is Qur’aan, revealed on His Last Messenger (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) by degrees, and after its completion, He manifested the fully actual human Religion in the world.
It is such Religion which has been coming since the times of Adam (peace be upon Him) and it will remain in existence up to the last day of the world. Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) conveyed the Holy Qur’aan, as it is, to the world, and caused to understand the people by means of Saying and Acting upon Its Commandments personally.
Those people who beheld the Messenger (grace, blessings and peace be on Him), collected His Words and Acts in all respect and saved them for next generations, which exists in the world with the name of “Hadith”. Qur’aan is such an extraordinary Book, in which, there is none in the world who may be able to make any amendment or change.
There is an astonishing thing in Qur’aan that, according to every era, complete Guidance may be found by those who meditate in its contents, and in accordance with its rules, they can make Codes for all times.
