Well my friend...We are all dummies..
Especially when we talk about Quran.
Have you ever realized, nowadays...people ONLY read Quran:
- Without understand the meaning.
- only love to hear the soothing sound of Quran recitation especially with tarannum
- Only used against djinn and syaithan (exorcism, I mean).
- Only read if we are afraid of something or have problems
- Being only decorations at houses and shops..
And if we observe more deeply, how low we had put the glorious book of God...
Let we refer what Allah had said in the second surah which is surah Al-Baqarah from verse 1-4
From here, it is easily understand that Quran is a book and there is no doubt whatsoever with its contents and the main role that Quran played is to be guidance.
But then, the guidance is for whom?
It is for the muttaqeen, the people who pose taqwa. Then what is taqwa? What differs taqwa, iman and Islam?
And it is for people who believe. For the believers.
And for the people who perform Salat..
Isn't it clear my friend? Only the people who pose the quality understand what Quran is.
But what we talk about is the glorious Quran. The one that Allah said as a guidance. And literally, it is a guidance. And why Allah said that it is for the muttaqeen. For the mu'minin..
What quality does a muttaqeen poses until he was made special by Allah to use Quran as a guidance?
Why we are not thinking about it my friend?
Why it is very important?
If we see it again, if we see everything through Al Quran, we had put Al Quran as our benchmark, our Quality Index.
That is why; the ideals must be based not by human. But by something greater than human Existence: God.
That is why if we put Quran as a guidance, we also make Quran as a benchmark.
A benchmark in our daily life. In leadership. In economy. In military. And even in families.
Doesn't it cover all scopes? Every part of your life, have Quran in it. Every part of your life have Islam in it.
My friend, Islam is not only a religion. It is how we lived our life according to Allah and Rasul. It is how we show Him that today we do everything for Him to get his redha.
That is only small parts of Quran. Afterall, this is only a simple introduction of Quran Guide for Dummies.
Now, what we need to do is not only respect Quran by placed it on high places such as the top of cupboard until we forgot its existence.
But what we must do is, open the Holy Book.
READ AL QURAN.
UNDERSTAND AL QURAN.
LIVE OUR LIVES BY LOOKING THROUGH AL QURAN.
Then we will become the Quranic generation that everyone talked about. The REAL QURANIC GENERATION..
