Islam Is All about Communication

Dr. Pasha

 

A Triple Token of Love from a Most Loving God

Islam is communication, no matter how you look at it.

Islam is communication with yourself and it is communication with God Almighty, with the Qur’an, with your fellow human beings and with the rest of God’s creation.

It is communication using the Qur’an, the Hadith and all the innate and acquired faculties, abilities and skills with which your maker may have blessed and endowed you.

So, Islam is communication. No matter how you look at it.

At the same time, Islam is also all about life, in every sense of that expression – life in this world as well as life in the next world.

And, of course, Islam is all about the Qur’an – and vice versa.

Qur’an, God’s own communication with and to his creation – the worlds – the best and finest and most complete that there is or can be.

And Islam is about the Hadith, the communication with and to his companions and the world of the man, Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, the most perfect and influential communicator in all of human history, whom God Almighty sent down into this world to invite and guide human beings – all human beings – to him and to a world of perfect bliss both in this world and the next world.

Thus, life, communication and Qur’an, together, are a matchless triple token of love from God the life-giver, God the master-communicator, God whose immortal and timeless miracle-message the Qur’an is and forever will remain.

From God whose most favorite and the most miraculous description of himself is Ar-Rahmaan: the most loving, the most kind, the most compassionate, the most merciful. This simply does not have a parallel in so-called “religious” lore of the world or in the annals of human discourse and communication in general.

The Qur’an asks: Do you know anyone else with that name?

I certainly don’t. Do you?

Does anyone?

Hal ta’lamu lahoo samiyyaa?

Paraphrase: “Do you know anyone else with that name?”

That is right, that is the paraphrase of that Aayat. Doesn’t anyone ever wonder how simple and clear and yet how profound and powerful a most simple passage of the Qur’an can be?

At the same time, let us not forget that when we talk about life, we are talking about life not only in this world (Dunya) but also about life in the next world (Aakhirah). For, to me it makes absolutely no sense for people to worry all the time about this life and yet to worry not even a little bit about next life. Especially, smart, thinking people.

To me it does not make any sense at all.

What, as Hazrat Ali is reputed to have remarked, if it does turn out that there indeed is life after death? What then?

Companions of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam: The Greatest Human Generation Ever!

Hazrat Ali was the son in law of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. He was a man of extraordinary physical, intellectual and scholarly abilities and talents. At the same time, he was also one of the most honest, fair-minded, just, and God-loving individuals known to humanity.

Along with Hazrat Abu Bakr, Omar and Uthman – may Allah love them and be pleased with them all – he was also one of the four men who, after the death of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, continued, expanded and consolidated the most fair, just, honorable, truthful and God-fearing society, government, culture and way of life that Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, established in this world.

These four men were the closest companions, associates, friends and pupils of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, who along with tens of thousands of other men and women that he called his companions, helped him to bring into existence this most marvelous and miraculous period in human history.

Each one of these male and female CompanionsSahaabah Kiraam as they are called – was a marvel and miracle of human greatness in his or her own right.

They were a most amazing group of people, mostly born and bred in the burning sands and life-giving oases of Arabia, most of them without much formal education or training of any kind except what the trackless deserts and its many challenges had to teach them. There is no better way to describe them except as warrior-saints.

They were warriors by day and saints and monks by night.

Their days they spent battling all kinds of tyrants and bad people in an effort to establish peace, liberty, equality and justice for all people, while their nights they spent in tearful prayers, penance and prostration before God with the greatest devotion and humility.

They were, thus, the most perfect examples of warrior-saints that this world has ever witnessed.

And they did whatever they did with the greatest sense of honor, decency, fairness, justice, integrity, truthfulness, kindness and compassion.

While nations and societies of the world all have their own special cohorts of people that they proudly refer to as the greatest generation, which may be true of those particular nations and societies, and of those particular generations and cohorts, the companions of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, were absolutely and without a doubt the greatest generation for all of humanity for all time past and present.

For all time to come, all other human beings will be judged in their greatness, as well as in their goodness, both as individuals and groups, in comparison to these most wonderful human beings, and this greatest human generation, that God Almighty’s mercy and love produced as one of his living miracles on earth: the noble companions of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
