Expositon of Quran

     by G. A. Parwez


About Quran, Allama Parwez writes in his book "Islam - A Challenge to Religion":-

The Book that God gave to Muhammad (s) through revelation, and which he passed on to the Muslims in the form in which we know it today. The internal evidence provided by the Qur'an itself, as well as historical research, proves beyond a shadow of doubt that not even a comma of the original Qur'anic text has been changed or is likely to be altered in the future. This is a unique attribute of the Qur'an and is not shared by any other revealed book now extant. The Qur'an embodies the din revealed to the earlier Anbiya in its true and perfect form.

This Book does not give us merely a code of ethics; it provides us with a code of life which embodies guidance, principles and laws relating to every sphere of human life and activity. The Qur'an, according to Islam, is the final authority in matters of din. The injunctions and the principles enshrined in the Book form the corner-stone of the Islamic polity and the limits laid down by it provide the framework within which the laws of the Islamic State may be formulated. These principles, or limits, or framework, are immutable, but the statutes made by the state within these four corners are open to modification and change according to the needs of the times.

The Qur'an is the last of the Divine Books, because nubuwwah ended with Muhammad (s). No subsequent human opinion or pronouncement in matters of din, therefore, can be recognized as authoritative; nor can any man-made law repugnant to the Qur'an be regarded as binding upon the Muslims. The Quran is a book of guidance for all mankind and transcends the barriers of time and space. The Islamic State is an instrument for the enforcement of the laws and injunctions embodied in the Qur'an.

Allah, the Rehman, the Raheem, has revealed this Book so that He may fulfil the responsibility that He has undertaken for the nurture of the human beings (6/12, 6/54) and other creatures in the universe, which is not possible without His guidance (10/57-58, 17/82)

Since Allahs responsibilities in the human world are fulfilled at the hands of humans, therefore it is important that whatever task they intend to undertake, should be aimed at accomplishment of His Programme (6/163).
