Well I know u can't tell if it's Qura'an or not! So you just have to believe me :)

hmm I respect your opinion, But I title it with that title bcoz we believe that the Qura'an is our light that will guide us in the darkness.

" This is the Book (the Qur'ân), whereof there is no doubt, a guidance to those who are Al-Muttaqûn [1] [the pious and righteous persons who fear Allâh much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allâh much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)]."

[1] Al-Muttaqûn: means pious and righteous persons who fear Allâh much (abstain from all kinds of sins and evil deeds which He has forbidden) and love Allah much (perform all kinds of good deeds which He has ordained)].

The Noble of Qura'an, (2) Al-Baqarah (The Cow)


and here is an example from the Holy Qura'an..

thanks for passing by.

Hello,

Here is something that you will very much appreciate:~

hhmm.. interesting!! I wanted to know, how come your Book, guides the ones that are already abstaining and pious? Are they not already not guided by God ??

Our Qura'an is made by our Lord. So Lord's words are guiding us through Qura'an.
Every time we read The Holy Qura'an it reminds us of what we really have to do and so on. Like the Holy Bible people read it searching for guides or for help and so on.

I know what you mean by "guiding light"... my question was, people who are ALREADY on the right path, and are guided (since they are pious and abstaining, so meaning they ARE guided), how is your Quran, the Holy book "guiding" them...??

I'm sorry for my late reply! I was thinking about your question and was trying to find an answer.. but your question doesn't make any sense becuase its obvious don't you think.. people who are already guided they guide, teach and explain things to other people what its in Qura'an.
and also the people who are already guided they still need to learn and to read Qura'an to keep them in the right path and not to do mistake.

I'm not the right person to explain about it.. I tried my best to do so.. so forgive me for my poor English!

hehe.. :giggle:

No dearest,

the reason why Allah says Quran is the book of guidance for those who are pious is because:~

1. only those that truly believe the "word of God" (and this does not refer to Muslims alone) will follow the scriptures and abide by it, and thus seek guidance from it all their lives; as Islam and Quran is not static, but dynamic in nature. (esp. taking into account the Islamic jurisprudence)

2. one more very remarkable thing to mention and should not be forgotten or left here is that, the wordings of the Quran are VERY VERY critical and every word is chosen for a precise meaning. Therefore, as the Holy Verse says:
" Alif lam mim (1). This Book, there is no doubt in it, (is) a guidance to those who guard (against evil) (2), Those who believe in the unseen and keep up prayer and spend (benevolently) out of what We have given them (3), And who believe in that which has been sent down to thee and that which was sent down before thee and they are sure of the hereafter (4). These are on a guidance from their Lord and these it is that shall be the successful ones (5) "

I will not go into discussion of the 1st verse, as it is way beyond the scope of a "reply". However, this is one paragraph from the extensive explanation given in Al-Mizaan..

" Those who guard against evil, or in other words, the pious ones, are the very people who believe. Piety or guarding oneself against evil, is not a special virtue of any particular group of the believers. It is not like doing good, being humble before God or purity of intention, which are counted as various grades of the faith. Piety, on the other hand, is a comprehensive virtue that runs through all the ranks of the true faith. It is for this reason that Allah has not reserved this adjective for any particular group of the believers. "

For anyone who wishes to read the (correct) translation, intrepretation/comments and exegesis of the Quran:~

هذي اجمل .. والسبب برأيي وضوح صفحة المصحف. وكون الإضاءة منبعثة منه يعني الكثير .. لقطة مبدعة تشكري عليها.
