Qur’an and Hadith Is All You Have in This World [Quote 420]

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

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


You do not, you cannot, see God in this world. But you see the Qur’an.

The Qur’an is all you have in your hands in this world. And the Qur’an is all you will ever see in this world.

Not God.

In other words, let me put it to you straight: The Qur’an is the closest you will ever come to seeing God in this world.

And that opportunity and that common blessing and Rahmat – to see the Qur’an; to hold the Qur’an in your hands; and to read and understand the Qur’an – is given to all in this world. People are limited or excluded only by their own will, ability and inclination.

So also, the Hadith is all you have in your hands. It is all you can see.

The Hadith is the closest you will ever come to seeing Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, in this world. Except of course in dreams, a boon and a privilege that is not granted to everyone.

Only very, very special people get to see Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, in their dreams.

But the Hadith is for all: to see; to hold in their hands; and to study and understand.

So, for everyone everywhere, while you cannot see God in this world, you see his speech in Qur’an, and everyone has been given full and direct access to it.

Just as we can no longer see Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, in flesh and blood in this world, everyone everywhere, has been given full and direct access to his life and legacy – his actual words and the most direct and unadulterated record of his actions – in the form of Hadith in a way that simply cannot be matched or paralleled.

So, you do not see God, but you see the Qur’an. And you do not see Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, but you see the Hadith.

Do we even begin to understand any of this? And do you think this entire thing has any equal anywhere?

And do you think any of this is a mere accident or coincidence?

And does all this not make Islam most self-evident?

And does all this not make Qur’an and Hadith the most compelling arguments for God?

And for Islam?

END

(Dr. Pasha)
