Why Philosophy is incapable of apprehending God-The ultimate Reality?

The spirit of Philosophy is one of the free inquiries suspecting all authorities. It caters to human thoughts –which are finite and inconclusive at best—with the help of reason and logic; which fail to apprehend the multiplicity of mutually repellent thought universes as a coherent universe.

Belief, on the other hand, demands unwavering certitude in, the unseen. Philosophy seems to have jurisdiction to judge religion but what is to be judged would not submit to its authority, for One, it is divine and “pure-truth”. Second, it is not the outcome of human thought but divine “word”. (It, however, does allow philosophy’s application for its interpretation and the comprehension of the human beings).

Ghazali’s refutation: “Well, perhaps, there is above reason another judge who, if he appearedwould convict reason of falsehood”.

Al Ghazali put it aptly; I recognized that certitude is the clear and complete knowledge of things, such knowledge as leaves no room for doubt nor possibility of error and conjecture so that there remains no room in the mind for error to find an entrance.

Philosophical pursuit to encompass the ultimate reality; aided by rationalism; would however end up; either in outright denial or a frank admission of philosophy’s incapacity.

God-Guarded sanctity of Qura’an

July 29, 2015

Qura'an

“Lo! Those who distort our revelations are not hid from us. Is he who is hurled into the fire better, or he who comes out secure on the day of resurrection? Do what you will. Lo! He is seer of what you do.     Say to them—for those who believe it is guidance and healing—-and for those who disbelieve, there is deafness in their ear and it is blindness for them. Such are (those who are) called to from afar” (customarily unable to comprehend)                                      (Surah Sajda 41, V 40 & 44)

In Qura’an and Hadith terminology the Arabic word used—ILHAD—means to deviate from the verse (meaning) of the Qura’an.  Lexically this word means –deviation, open denial, misinterpretation distortion in essence. (Particularly when apparently there exists an impression of belief–expressed or implied—but attributing self assumed misleading meaning—or the use of the meaning in irrelevant places; just to prove one’s point. (In contravention of the recognized and accepted meanings and use of the verse) It falls in the category of hypocritical Kufr. (infidelity)

Further is it declared that Qura’an is protected by God hence, is unassailable, God holds this book very dear and no falsehood can enter it. (V-41)     In Surah Hijr # 9 it is said “It is We, even We, who revealed the Qura’an and it is We, who will protect it”
