Divine Wisdom

Koran And Glasses - csp0074385

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

(In the name of God The most gracious and the most merciful)

عَلَّمَالْقُرْآنَ

Allamal Qura’an (Surah Ar-Rahman 55 V 2)

Ar Rahman (The Gracious) has taught the Qura’an.

Just one word of Qura’an would show the veracity of Divine wisdom (Qura’an) for the people of intellect and understanding.

The word “Allama” (to teach) a verb, according to Arabic grammar, requires two object. One is direct and other indirect.

1) The one of which knowledge has to be imparted (taught).

2) The one to whom the knowledge has to be imparted (taught).

(1-is the source and 2-is the recipient)

Here the first object is Qura’an while the other one is not specified.

Some scholars/exegetes opine that it is Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) who was taught the Qura’an directly by God (through the medium of Jibrail (Gabriel- A.S) for onward dissemination to the entire creation. (Not only Muslims)

Let us look at it from another, rather a subtle, point of view.

The purpose of the Qura’an is to give guidance, about good morals and righteous deeds, to the entire creation; therefore, the 2nd object is left deliberately unspecified to ensure the dissemination.

عَلَّمَهُا لْبَيَانَ (4)خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ  (3)

Next verses # 3 & 4 say:- He created man. He taught him how to express himself.

Man’s creation ranks first and foremost in the natural order of things so much so that even the imparting of knowledge proceeded after his creation.

This also determines the sole purpose of the creation of human and gene (Jin), stated in (51:56) We created man and Gene (Jin) for nothing but worship. Worship without guidance is impossible.(Nevertheless, the mention of Qura’an precedes the creation of man in Surah Ar-Rahman—but imparting of the knowledge became possible only after man’s creation. Hence, man acquires a first and foremost position in the natural/rational order of things).

The anthropocentric character of the Universe, Special status of man and yet his denial of God!

Qura’an–Surah Luqman 31, V-20– it is said–Don’t you see! How God has made beneficial to you whatsoever is in the Heavens and the Earth and showered you with overt and covert blessings, yet of men is he who disputes concerning Him; without knowledge, guidance or being enlightened from Scripture!

Qura’an—Surah At-Tin 95, V-4, 5  Surah Sajda 32, V-7 & 8 Surah Al Hijr 15, V-33 also said—We made man as the best of the creations (Masterpiece)–but from basal and lowly ingredients (such as blackened decaying mud and semen) and then turned him into the lowest of the low, Except those who believed and did righteous deeds. The point is that despite all these accolades, to excel to be Crown of the Creation, submission, belief and good deeds are inevitable requirements.
