“This is a proclamation for all mankind that they may be warned by it, and they may know that He is the One God, and the enlightened may use their knowledge.” (Abraham 14:52)
We are grateful to Allah whom we owe everything. He is our Lord and our Creator, whose commendation brings piece at all times and deserves our compliance. He is the Owner and the Protector of Quran that has no uncertainty or doubt.
“Allah is He, besides whom there is no god, the Alive, the Self-Subsisting; slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep; whatever is in the skies and whatever is in the earth belong to Him. Who is the one that can take along someone except by His permission? He knows what they show and what they hide. They cannot comprehend anything of His knowledge save whatever He lets them know. He dominates the skies and the earth, and the preservation of them both is not difficult for Him. He is The Sublime, The Great.” (The Cow 2:255)
For us, discovering the near life we live in and the hereafter that will start with the rebirth and procuring Our Creator’s consent in both, we should aim the obtaining of the endless paradise and the good He offers.
“…Some say: Our Lord, give us in this world. Such people shall have no share in the Hereafter. Then there are others who say: Our Lord, give us what is good in this world and also what is good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of Fire. Such people shall have their share from their doings. Allah is swift at settling accounts.” (The Cow 2:200-202)
Reaching the final target desired by everyone is doubtlessly possible by reading, understanding and following the book which Allah revealed to mankind.
“From those We have given the book and follow it as it should be followed also believes in it (Quran). The ones that ignore it will be the real losers.” (The Cow 2:121)
“Whoever shows negligence to the information of the Beneficent (Allah), We assign him a shaytan as his boon companion. These shaytans hinder them from the right path, while they still reckon themselves to be rightly-guided.” (Gold Adornments 43:36-37)
The lack of endeavor to understand the message of Allah is certainly an irrational conduct. This behavior makes the individual lose the capability to tell between the good and the bad.
“There are among them illiterate ones who have no knowledge of the book. All they know is reading without understanding. They only make predictions (about it).” (The Cow 2:78)
Nevertheless, Quran has been clarified to the human beings in order to warn the alive.
“…This is only a true information and an explanatory Quran. (It is sent down) to warn whom is alive and to establish the argument against those who ignore it.” (Ya-Sin 36:69-70)
As Suleymaniye Foundation, our primary target is to understand the message of Allah and to spread it wherever we can reach.
It is essential to comprehend our lives in the light of Quran. It is the only way for the positive impact of Quran on individuals and the society, as a whole, will be present and evident.
Unfortunately, the pages and the cover of Quran have been sanctified, as a real wall is built between people and its advising, leading aspects. This is an obvious loss and wickedness against humanity.
Eventhough the majority of people are believers, they have been lost in the maze of exaggeration and in paths diverse from teachings of Quran and the Messenger. Knowing that, even Muhammad had been warned not to become from the hypocrites, it is odd that people believe similarly to hypocrites without taking this particular issue into consideration.
“Do not let (anyone) turn you away from the revelations of Allah after they have been sent down to you. Call people to your Lord and do not be one of the mushriqs (do not put Allah into the background).” (The Stories 28:87)
No doubt it will be arduous, aiming to learn the truth in the mean time analyzing mentioned states and superstitions in the light of Quran.
“Should We divert this information from you because you are people immersed in extravagance?” (Gold Adornments 43:5)
Quran includes principles and instructions that regulate the social life, besides being a guidance to succeed in this world and in the hereafter for its believers. If objective and logical studies are undertaken by respective science branches on the messages in Quran, immensely important resources will be reached for the mankind. We would like to emphasize that such studies are undertaken by our foundation in order to uphold to the commands of our Creator. Our studies embrace the endeavors of a lot more others around the world, who hold on to the principle of following scientific standards at work.
“Everyone has a direction. He heads for it. So, race in good works. Wherever you are, Allah will bring you all together. Surely, Allah has set a measure for everything.” (The Cow 2:148)
“Of those whom We have created, there is a party who guide men with/through the truth and act justly according to it.” (The Elevated Place 7:181)
