Islam and Qur’an Will Continue to Flourish
[Quote – 230]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“I wonder how many of us ever think about the soul-numbing comment Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, once made about the future of Islam and Muslims. “A day will come,” he said, “When all that will remain of Islam will be its name and all that will remain of the Qur’an will be its script.” I wonder how many of us ever ask if this time is that time. May Allah All-Mighty continue to protect his Deen Islam and his Book the Qur’an. My first reaction is to say: “Yes, this time is indeed that time. For, Islam has become an empty shell and the Qur’an is a stranger among Muslims and the rest of the world.” And then some time passes and my heart begins to cry out, “No, it cannot be. This time cannot be that time. For, there is still a good bit of Islam left in the world and the Qur’an is beginning to get a measure of traction in the lives of Muslims. At least in their individual lives even if not in their societies, cultures and collective lives. And an occasional non-Muslim still does drift into Islam for whatever reason.” So my aching heart turns a somersault and whoops out in joy: “The good times are here. Islam will still reach every home and heart that needs it. And God’s majestic book the Qur’an will still light up every bosom in every society and culture. For, a benighted humanity, run out of all options for a better life, has nowhere to turn but to Islam and the Qur’an, even if it has to vault over the heads of Muslims to get to Islam and the Qur’an.”” (Dr. Pasha)
