The Living Miracle

Reference : Dr. Javed Jamil

A systematic study of the Holy Qur’an-1

“A Systematic Study of the Holy Quran” is a humble attempt to understand the message, and the system, propagated by the Qur’an, particularly with its unparalleled relevance in the context of the present and the future world. It classifies the verses in an entirely unique way that will give an idea to the reader about the comprehensiveness of the Book of God and will help in convincing him that this is the Final Document from God that has not to be merely understood and comprehended; it has to be followed in letter and spirit in every walk of life.

For the followers of Islam, it is not mere belief that the Qur’an is no ordinary work of no ordinary mortal; they are thoroughly convinced that it is a Singular, Supreme and Majestic Work of a Singular, Supreme and Majestic Author, the Creator and the Lord of the universe. The Qur’an itself declares, and does so categorically, that it is for all times to come, for all parts of the world and for all human generations. This, again, is by no means an ordinary declaration. This is indeed an outstanding and extraordinary claim—this is why the Qur’an is regarded as the greatest of all miracles, a “living miracle”, bestowed by God on Muhammad, the Final Prophet of Islam — and this claim has been strengthening with every passing day in the onward march of the world civilisation. In the words of Abdullah Yusuf Ali, the renowned commentator of the Qur’an, “unlike all other writings this is a unique book with a supreme author, an eternal message and a universal relevance.”  “Its contents”, continues Ali, “are not  confined to a  particular theme or style, covering a whole spectrum of issues, which range from  specific  articles of faith and commandments to general moral teachings, rights and  obligations, crime and punishment, personal and public law, and hosts of other private and social concerns.” And the irrefutable truth is that the Qur’an contains much more than what human brains can imagine, ponder or discover.

The world today, despite its advanced and sophisticated ways of life, is full of chaos at every level. At the individual level, physical, mental and spiritual illnesses are ever on the rise; at the family level, the disintegration of family is fast becoming a norm rather than an exception; and at the social level, the ever rising crime rate, social and economic exploitation, commercialisation of all forms of evil including sex, addiction and crime, and separatist and extremist  movements based on racism, communalism and aggressive nationalism have destroyed the harmony of life. It is in the background of this disruption of harmony that the Qur’an needs to be understood and applied in all spheres of life. The contest today is not between different religions. The real contest is between religion and irreligion; between scientific (or Healthy) morality preached by Divine Messengers andcommercial morality advertised by the tyrannical monarchs of the business world; and between ‘Comprehensive Peace’ propagated by the Scriptures and ‘materialistic peace’ imposed by the forces and powers that rule the roost. It is incumbent on the followers of the Qur’an to jihad (strive) for the eradication of all forms of evil; they have to unite not for the sake of fighting with any community or nation but to strive for the ultimate purpose of the unity of the whole mankind founded on the principles of universal peace and brotherhood. This requires, as the first step, a proper understanding of the Book of God.“A Systematic Study of the Holy Quran” I hope, will, Insha-Allah, help the world better understand the meaning and significance of Peace; the principles of the Qur’an will surely  show them, provided they have the will to tread it, the Established Path (Sirat-al-Mustaqueem) of Peace, the Path of God and His  Envoys to the humanity.  Having said that, I will hasten to assert that this work is no replacement for the Qur’an itself; at the best, this is a guide for those who want to understand the Book of God particularly with its relevance to the current world; but they must return as soon as possible to the original for a complete understanding of the Book.
 

In this work, I have mainly used three authentic English translations of the Qur’an: by Abdullah Yusuf Ali (denoted by A at the end of the verses), M. Pickthall (denoted by P) and  M.Y. Zeyid   (denoted by Z).
 

While the Book of God is infallible, the same cannot be true either of the English translations that have been used (for the translators are human beings) or the prefatory comments and notes made by the author of this work. With all humility, I seek the forgiveness of God for any error that might have been committed by me or for failing in any way to do justice--this of course is beyond the capability of any human brain-- with “The Living Miracle”. The present work is only a beginning; indeed each and every subject of this book deserves a separate and elaborate treatment. May God make this work useful for all those who study it
 

In this work, I have used “God” as the English translation of “Allah”. There may be disagreement on this but in English I prefer to use God because non-Muslim readers often tend to believe that “Allah” is not God, the Lord of the Universe but a special deity of Islam. Those who oppose the use of “God” on the ground of its not being the exact equivalent of Allah are not justified in their arguments. In every language, there is a word for the One Lord of the Universe and the English word is God. The argument that “gpd” can be plural and has feminine gender as well (goddess) are not right as God with G has neither plural nor feminine gender. Capital G has the same literary effect as “al” in Arabic. Allah is formed of “al” and “ilaah” and ilaah too can have plurals and feminine gender. But once it becomes Allah, it becomes specific to t5he Only Lord of the Universe.
