Connecting the Missing Link

By Muqith Mujtaba Ali

Attitude determines the altitude.
The way Qur’anic Commands are put into action determine the altitude of one’s belief in the Qur’an.

Belief in the Qur’an, in fact, means…

Understanding the Qur’an

Recognising its Author

Knowing oneself & one’s Creator

Proclaiming the oneness of Allah

Submitting to Allah’s will

Believing in all the Prophets of Allah

Believing in the Prophethood of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)

Taking Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) as one’s role model

Proclaiming the finality of Prophet Muhammad’s Prophethood

Believing in the six pillars of faith

Carrying out the duties as enshrined in the five pillars of Islam

Being kind and dutiful to one’s parents

Respecting and honouring elders

Showing compassion to children and young people

Pondering over the creation

Developing Allah-consciousness

Differentiating between Truth & falsehood, Lawful & prohibited, Right & wrong, Good & bad

Excelling in Good Deeds

Praying five times in a day

Fufilling the Rights of Allah

Honouring human rights

Competing in Righteousness

Enjoining what is right

Forbidding what is wrong

Pooling Human & Material resources

Crushing the evil forces

Exploring the universe

Facilitating peace & justice

Building relationships

Striving one’s utmost to make the word of Allah supreme

Travelling in the land drawing lessons from the history of nations

Verifying news before communicating

Fearing the evil consequences of one’s deeds in the Hereafter

Nurturing humane values

Evolving a just world order

Developing caring & sharing attitude ·

Tolerating others’ faith

Leading mankind from darkness to light

Conquering hearts

Living by the Qur’an

Dying for the cause of Allah

What an insult to the Word of Allah should someone take for granted that the Glorious Qur’an is just for reading!

How disgusting it is when someone should read it without understanding!

The Qur’an is an agenda for life! Nay, the Qur’an is our life!

Was not our glorious Prophet, Muhammad (Peace be upon him),  ‘the walking Qur’an’?
