Elke dag krijg ik berichtjes van mijn verre vriend, die de Qur’an veel leest. (schuine letters zijn van mijn fb-vriend).
Man is gifted with wisdom and faculty of discernment (Q8:29). Man is endowed with innate moral sense (Q91:8) and pointed out to him two ways of good and evil (Q90:10) and made mankind vicegerents on earth (Q35:39). Performing salat service is not enough. The Quran enjoins: “….observe Salat and pay the Zakat and enjoin good and forbid evil.” (Q22:41). This is man’s moral and social duty to prevent evil and wrongdoing. How can man deny moral and social responsibility?
That is very nice! It is all in the Qur’an! You know many phrases the Qur’an. That is useful to teache people. Every wisdom is in the Qur’an.
But some peoples heart is closed.
“Then do they not reflect upon the Quran, or are there locks upon their hearts? (Quran 47:24)
“The true believers have stronger love for Allah.” – Quran 2:165 Believers love is their submission to the Divine Being, Allah. Islam is way of the Quran. The Quran is a guide to good living (Q:2:185). This is why we should live up to the moral goodness of the Quran so that people may see the light of the Quran is shining through us in a positive way.
Muslims are lacking in moral goodness. This is the cause of ruin of the Muslims.
Yes, it is a shame. Thats why people in the west cannot understand what can be good about islam as a religion
