Islam according to Qur’an and
‘Alif. Lam. Mim. This is the Book: there is no doubt about it. It is guidance to Godfearing people, who believe in the unseen , establish the Salats and expend out of what We have bestowed on them; who believe in the Book We have sent down to you (i.e. the Qur’an) and in the Books sent down before you,*7 and firmly believe in the Hereafter.’
In the seventh footnote, Maulana Saiyad Abul Aala Maududi, rahamatullah alaihi; the founder of Jamaete Islami; has written:
‘The fifth requirement is that one should believe in the Books revealed by God to His Prophets in the various ages and regions of the world, in the Book revealed to Muhammad (peace be on him) as well as in those revealed to the other Prophets who preceded him.
The door of the Qur’an is closed to all those who do not consider it necessary for man to receive guidance from God.
It is also closed to those who, even if they believe in the need for such guidance, do not consider it necessary to seek it through the channel of revelation and prophethood, but would rather weave their own set of ideas and concepts and regard them as equivalent to Divine Guidance.
This door is also closed to those who believe in Divine books as such, but confine this belief to those books accepted by their forefathers, and spurn Divine Guidance revealed to anyone born beyond their own racial and national boundaries.
The Qur’an excludes all such people and is prepared to open the source of its grace only to those who believe that mankind does require Divine Guidance, who acknowledge that this guidance does not come to people individually but reaches them through Prophets and Divine Books and who are not given to racial or national chauvinism but are devotees of Truth alone, and are therefore prepared to submit to Divine Guidance wherever it be found.’
-Towards understanding the Qur’an
The same principle is repeated in Al Qur’an Al Kareem again in 43rd Soorat,‘Sooratal Zukhruf’:
‘Ha’. Mim. By the Clear Book; verily We have made it an Arabic Qur’an that you may understand. Indeed it is transcribed in the Original Book with Us; *2 sublime and full of wisdom*3.’
– Al Qur’an Al Kareem:43 Az Zukhruf:1-4
In Surah (56)AI-Waqi`ah the same thing has been described as Kitab-um-Maknun (the hidden and preserved Book) and in Surah (85)AI-Buruj 22 as Lauh-i Mahfuz (the Preserved Tablet), that is, the Tablet whose writing cannot be effaced, which is secure from every kind of interference.
By saying that the Qur’an is inscribed in Umm al-Kitab, attention has been drawn to an important truth.
Different Books had been revealed by Allah in different ages to different Prophets for the guidance of different nations in different languages, but all these Books invited mankind to one and the same Faith: they regarded one and the same thing as the Truth; they presented one and the same criterion of good and evil; they propounded the same principles of morality and civilization; in short, they brought one and the same Din (Religion).
The reason was that their source and origin was the same, only words were different; they had the same meaning and theme which is inscribed in a Source Book with Allah, and whenever there was a need, He raised a Prophet and sent down the same meaning and subject-matter clothed in a particular diction according to the environment and occasion.
Had Allah willed to raise the Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be His peace) in another nation instead of the Arabs, He would have sent down the same Qur’an in the language of that nation.
If we believe Maulana saiyad Abul aala Maududi,rahamtullah alaihi; even the door to Qur’an is not opened to abc to xyz, the changing ID idiot of Calgary Canada; Jack, Leo, Hindukush Raid, KBK, Shul, AAAA, Double AAAA, and all their vulgar scoundrel companions.
The other alternative is that these scoundrels are true, and Maulana Saiyad Abul Aala Maududi, a world known and globally respected figure; is wrong.
I reject this option outright.
You can choose what you think right.
