The relationship between the Book and its Reading!
Dear brothers/sisters, Assalamu Alaikum.
This is not a new post. As this is taken from a long article I wrote some years ago, alhamdulillah. The purpose of this post is to request all my dear readers to go through the points mentioned below, and share your thoughts about it or supplement it with other related points.
Your participation, Inshaa’Allah, will help in the process of understanding and presenting things in a better way. I want to write more on this topic. Thought of doing it differently, and so I expect new ideas from YOU. Jazakallahu Khayra. Vassalam.
The very word with which the Last and Final Divine Book relates itself to inspires one to exclaim:
Subhanallah! This undoubtedly is the Word of Almighty Allah!
When we try to understand the meaning of the word “Qur’aan”, its richness tends to weave a tapestry in the canvas of one’s mind.
The word “Qur’an” comes from the Arabic root Qa ra’a which means ‘he read, he recited’. It also means ‘the reading, the recitation’. The word is used in infinitive verbal form – and, quite obviously verb is nothing but action!
The relationship between reading and the Book is quite interesting.
Let us understand with the help of one example.
The scripture of Judaism and Christianity is called the ‘Bible’ which means ‘Book’.
The scripture of Islam is called the ‘Qur’an’ which means the ‘Reading’.
Book is a product. Reading is a process. The utility of a book can be realized only when somebody reads it. Otherwise it will be a dead thing on a shelf. It comes to life or animation only when its meaning begin to work in readers’ mind. A book is a non-entity, meaningless, lifeless.
Our Book has a name which lays emphasis on the process. The book comes to life only because it is read. What is to be read is the Qur’an! So in that way it establishes relationship with the Book.
NOW IT IS YOUR TURN TO SEND YOUR INPUTS, DEAR BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
You can send your ideas/inputs/references etc. through comments section by 27th February, Inshaa’Allah.
Share or Not. Choice is Yours. If you share, Allah will reward you. That makes a huge difference.
