Grand Qur'aan: The Infallible Doctrine-Discourse of Reality-Profitability and substance of permanence
The fundamental characteristics that render and earn for a book the title of great book include; validity and reliability of its contents. In timeline, we are always surrounded by information and to know which source to trust is not always an easy proposition. The ability to evaluate the credibility of information is the most important skill for success. Validity and reliability of a book is the primary and the foremost concern of a critical reader and searcher for the truth. Except Grand Qur'aan, presently no book in its body has addressed such concerns of a reader. The parameters, criteria for evaluating the validity and reliability of a book is that its contents must be absolutely void of psychologically disconcerting suspicious, conjectural, whimsical, conflicting, un-certain, illusory, unsubstantiated, biased and opinionated matter. These features grant a book the credentials of infinite validity and reliability. Conversely, we can say that only such book can be credited as valid and reliable which has in its miscellany nothing but infallible truths whose veracity can stand the accuracy test in timeline. In Arabic, this fact about the book is rendered in succinct and explicit manner by the epithet:
That revelation: the Qur'aan is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse;
: Its Root is: "ح ق ق". The basic concept infolded in it is of becoming of something established or confirmed as a fact and truth; manifest-obvious, undoubted, authentic, genuine, sound, valid, substantial, real, certain, established and confirmed fact or event. Learned Ibn Faris [died 1005] stated its basic perception in these words:
الحاء والقاف أصلٌ واحد، وهو يدل على إحكام الشيء وصحّته. فالحقُّ نقيضُ الباطل، َ
That it leads to the perception of validity and authenticity of permanent nature; thereby, it is the opposite of: الباطلscum, conjecture, filmy layer of extraneous matter or impurities that rises up on the surface of a liquid; dross or refuse from molten metal which becomes visible on surface.
Lane's Lexicon quoting Er-Rághib states:
Primary meaning of حَقٌّ, and as an act. part. n., and a simple epithet, contr. of بَاطِلٌ., on the authority of Er-Rághib, It was, or became, suitable to the requirements of wisdom, justice, right or rightness, truth, or reality or fact; or to the exigencies of the case]: it was, or became, just, proper, right, correct, or true; authentic, genuine, sound, valid, substantial, or real; established, or confirmed, as a truth or fact: and necessitated, necessary, requisite, or unavoidable; binding, obligatory, incumbent, or due: syn. وَجَبَ; and ثَبَتَ: it was, or became, a manifest and an indubitable fact or event.
Grand Qur'aan is a unique discourse that has inbuilt lexicon for its important words and terms, like books on law-constitution, and scientific facts. It defines its terms and exposes the perception and meanings of important words in picturesque manner by using it in different semantic fields whereby one can perceive all its dimensions relating to substance as well accident including metaphorical aspect. It exposes the perception and meanings of its words picturesquely by relationships and contrasts.
He the Exalted sent water from the Sky.
Thereat, the water pathways-valleys inundated according to their capacity-measure.
Resultantly the inundation uplifted scum, characteristically uprising.
And from whatever [metal] they ignite/combustion upon it in the fire in order/desiring to make ornaments or utensils, there is scum/dross like that surfaced on water.
Like it, Allah the Exalted strikes to let shine in open the established fact, reality, profitable and substance of permanence, and exposes in contrast the: بَاطِل scum, conjecture, filmy layer of extraneous matter or impurities that rises up on the surface of a liquid; dross or refuse from molten metal which becomes visible on surface.
Thereat, as for scum is concerned it vanishes away/goes away as froth.
And as for that which benefits people, it for reason/resultantly settles in wait on the earth bed.
This is how Allah the Exalted strikes the examples-similitude. [13:17]
This contrast of the epithet: with antonym: by quoting observable physical phenomenon has conspicuously revealed its meanings. Firstly the ascription of: finds mention for Qur'aan; categorically negating presence of conjectural, wishful-fake, non-substantiated, hearsay, and non-established, invalid, unsound, vague and opinionated substance in its constituent matter. Thereafter: is the description and ascription of the Book. Negation of negative aspect and then narrating the positive attribute by assigning it as a descriptive name doubly confirms and stresses double emphasis on the true nature of the Grand Qur'aan:
And you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] pronounce: "The Infallible Doctrine-Discourse of Reality-Profitability and substance of permanence: Grand Qur'aan has since arrived; and the: بَاطِل falsehood; scum like filmy layer of extraneous matter or impurities that rise up on surface of a liquid, dross or refuse from molten metal, has vanished/dilapidated.
The fact about [بَاطِل] the conjectural scum is that it has always been a matter that eventually vanishes away. [17:81]
And Our Majesty gradually communicates and reveals from the miscellany of Grand Qur'aan that which is a Healer and Curer for psychological - personality disorders - diseases which are nurtured in the chests. And it is a blessing for the true believers.
But the fact remains that their refrain and contradiction increases the unjust and distorters nothing save rendering them in a state of losses. [17:82]
Credibility, validity, reliability and permanence of a book is of such importance that it is reiterated time and again about Qur'aan, some quotes:
Moreover, when it was said for them, "You people incline to believe in Qur'aan which Allah the Exalted has since communicated";
They-the Jew elite replied, "We believe and keep believing in that which was sent upon us".
The fact is that they refuse to accept; besides that, the To'raat, which was subsequently sent [that is Injeel and Qur'aan]
They refuse despite the fact that it, the Qur'aan, is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse;
It is the Testifier-Affirmer-Certifier-Sanctifier of that which they already had with them. [Refer 2:91]
Academicians, scholars and educationists regard citing other reliable sources as a sign of credibility. Describing Grand Qur'aan by the epithet: Infallible doctrine-discourse, it is featured by active participle: one who certifies the sanctity, truthfulness of that which is cited. The citation is of To'raat.
You the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] pronounce:
"O you the Mankind! Know the fact that the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse in the form of Grand Qur'aan has since reached to you people from your Sustainer Lord.
Therefore, in response the Qur'aan having reached to him, whoever endeavoured getting guided, thereby he is guiding-leading on the way only for his own self.
Similarly, the person who remained neglectful-indifferent towards Grand Qur'aan having reached him, thereby the consequential fact is that his strays-neglect has effect upon his own self.
Remain aware that I-Muhammad [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] am not required or made responsible to act upon you people as disposer of affairs-caretaker-a guard". [10:108]
Alif; [Letter, not consonant], Laam, Meem and Ra consonants of Arabic alphabet (أبجدية عربية); conjoined and two have above them ancillary glyph/prolongation sign/mark which extends the sound value of the letter to which it is added.
These are the Verbal Passages of the Book: Grand Qur'aan.
Take note about that: Grand Qur'aan which has been revealed to you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] in easy to understand composition by your Sustainer Lord: It is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse.
However, the fact remains that most of the people do not accept and believe in it. [13:01]
Is then he who intelligently recognizes that it is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse which has been revealed to you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] in easy to understand composition by your Sustainer Lord: Like him who is blind hearted?
The fact is that only Men of Wisdom: who look into matters and conduct objectively without overlapping with emotions-prejudices-biases-whims-caprices, save it in memory, frequent it for reference-lesson and relate. [13:19]
And You the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] pronounce: "This Grand Qur'aan is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse, which is sent compactly towards you in easy to read and comprehend composition by your Sustainer Lord.
Therefore, there being principle of no coercion, whoever so willed he should thereat voluntarily and happily accept and believe in it; and should someone decided otherwise, he is at liberty to refuse to accept it.
The fact remains that Our Majesty has prepared Hell-Prison for the people who are unjust-distorters. The characteristic feature of it, the Hell-Prison is that her awning-heat has surrounded them all around.
And if they call for water to get relief from high temperature they will be rained with water like the molten brass which will scald the faces.
That drink is the worst; and she, the Hell Prison, is a wretched place for living abode. [18:29]
And so that they who are given the knowledge might know that it the Grand Qur'aan is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse revealed by the Sustainer Lord of you the Messenger.
Whereby they might heartily believe in it and thereat their hearts become reverent for it.
Know it, Allah the Exalted is certainly the Guide upon the High road that keeps leading safely and straight to the destination of peace and tranquility for those who have accepted/believed. [22:54]
Thereby, when the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse: Qur'aan reached to them through the Messenger from Our Majesty:
They the ruling elite said to people: "Why has he not been given like that which was given to Mūsā [alai'his'slaam]?"
Have they not refused to accept that which was given aforetimes to Mūsā [alai'his'slaam]?
They the ruling elite said to people: "These are two magical illusions that supported each other to create illusory effect"; and further said:: "Indeed we have rejected to believe either" [28:48]
We have certainly now caused the Verbal Communication: Qur'aan sequenced and annotated for them: people at large.
Objective of sequencing and annotating the Qur'aan is that they might reflexively perceive and retain it in memory, take lesson and relate. [28:51]
They; whom We had given the Book: In'jeel before the revelation of this Grand Qur'aan, believe in it. [28:52]
Take note, when Grand Qur'aan was recited to them word by word, they had said: "We have believed in it, certainly it is Infallible Doctrine-Discourse revealed by our Sustainer Lord;
The fact is that we have been Muslims: the followers of prescribed Code and Procedure-Islam in times before revelation of Grand Qur'aan." [28:53]
Contradicting it, do they keep saying to people: "He: Muhammad [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] has drafted and compiled it: Qur'aan with his own effort, perception, knowledge, understanding?"
No, their perception is wrong, he is not the author; the fact is that it the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse revealed by the Sustainer Lord of you the Messenger.
The objective is that you might revive/admonish the nation: Bani Iesma'eile-the Gentile to whom no admonisher had come in times - generations before you the Messenger [Muhammad Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam]
So that they people may guide themselves aright. [32:03]
Know it; Those who are given the knowledge find that which is revealed by the Sustainer Lord of you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam], Grand Qur'aan:
It is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse;
And it guides people towards the High Road destined to the Dominant Absolute Sovereign, the ever Praiseworthy. [34:06]
You the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] pronounce: "the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse of Reality-Profitability and substance of permanence: Grand Qur'aan has since arrived;
And the: بَاطِل falsehood; scum, filmy layer of extraneous matter or impurities rising on surface of a liquid, dross or refuse from molten metal, neither initiates a new process nor it repeats leading to a logical conclusion. [34:49]
And what Our Majesty has verbally communicated to you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] as gathered and compiled part of the Book: Grand Qur'aan:
It is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse;
It is the testifier-affirmer to sanctify that which was sent in times before it.
It is certain that Allah the Exalted is fully aware about and is ever watching His subjects. [35:31]
Not only that, I also gave affluence to these people of Mecca and their fathers;
Until the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse and the distinctly recognized Messenger came to them. [43:29]
And when the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse: Qur'aan reached to them;
They the ruling elite said: "This Qur'aan is illusionary lie;
And of course we are the deniers of it." [43:30]
And they further said: "Why has this Qur'aan not been sent upon a fabulously rich man of the two cities?" [43:31]
And news about those: Who heartily accepted-believed and conducted righteously and moderately;
And acknowledged-accepted that which has gradually been communicated to Muhammad [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam]; Grand Qur'aan:
And comment about Qur'aan is that it is the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse, which is sent compactly towards them in easy to read and comprehend composition by their Sustainer Lord.
He the Exalted has exonerated them of their past lapses and shortcomings;
And has perfected their condition. [47:02]
This dichotomous end result is because of the reason that those who refused to accept-believe in Grand Qur'aan: they had purposely followed the conjecture and scum.
And that those who accepted-believed: they diligently followed, in letter and spirit, the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse: Grand Qur'aan which is sent compactly towards them in easy to read and comprehend composition by their Sustainer Lord.
This is the manner Allah the Exalted strikes for the people citing their own credentials. [47:03]
The principles of validity and reliability are at the core of what is accepted as scientific proof, by scientists and philosophers alike. Requirement of testability is an essential prerequisite to a hypothesis for establishing itself as an accepted scientific truth. Since human judgments are always going to come under question, the testability of a claim helps maintain the validity and reliability in timeline.
The ascription of: and : the established truth needing no further evidence and argument, describing the Grand Qur'aan manifests that it is the ever living Book; never ever to be outdated. The experts suggest that one of the criteria a book has to meet to earn title of a great book is that; "The book has to speak from an important original setting. But a great book is one that is not trapped in its original setting. It has to be written in a way that constitutes it a living experience for readers today." Grand Qur'aan has described inbuilt test for verifying the validity and reliability of its contents time and again in the timeline:
We will henceforth keep visually exposing Our tangible-physical realities prevalent in the Universe-horizons and in their own bodies to the eyes of those who do not accept the Qur'aan.
The purpose of this visual manifestation is that it might become self manifest for them that Qur'aan is Infallible Doctrine-Discourse of Reality-Profitability and substance of permanence.
[Reverting to their conduct] Do you think that your Sustainer Lord has not yet been considered to suffice as ultimate observer?
The fact is that He the Exalted is the One and only Who is the Observer-the Omnipresent upon every thing/whole time and space. [41:53] [Read with 27:93]
Grand Qur'aan informed that Allah the Exalted will keep bringing to human visual access the knowledge about universe and human body, whereby the fact that Grand Qur'aan is Infallible Discourse of Reality-Profitability and substance of permanence might become self manifest to the people who keep denying it. Why a first time observation of hitherto unseen thing-phenomenon manifests that the Qur'aan is a statement of proven fact? This is possible only if the same thing finds verbal mirroring of it in the Qur’aan. Verbal specification and visual observation are two aspects of identification of a tangible fact of real existence, as denoted by Arabic word : anything that mirrors and conveys information; an information mirroring transmitter; a verbal passage of Qur'aan communicating information.
The visual observation of an earlier unseen fact will manifest a book written earlier in time as the Book of Facts which contains its verbal presentation. This will establish that the Book contains verbal statements of physical/scientific facts and is not conjectural, hypothetical or presumptive in its contents. Whatever has come to our visual observation relating to horizons of the universe and about our own bodies after the revelation of Grand Qur'aan: we will study those matters under the title "Grand Qur'aan in 21st century: Man and the Universe: Why is the Universe the way it is". There, we will see that what we observed it was already verbally mirrored in Qur'aan exactly as we later observed with eyes. Another epithet for Grand Qur'aan is: : Visual imagery. We will be surprised to find that it were the non believers of Qur'aan who first observed those things and phenomena as was promised in Qur'aan.
Knowledge is primarily divided into two branches; knowledge of things/matter and what happened-was talked about by the people; their dialogues, habits and acts in the past. The knowledge about the matter is verifiable in time and space. Anything said by anyone or a book regarding physical matters could be subjected to verification in time and space about its truth to an exact detail. If we find the words of a book relating to physical matters, written earlier in time, as true, factually and materially correct in all respects: then we will have to believe too, in those statements of the Book which narrate some events/dialogues between people of past/historical statements. The falsification test of any book/statement could be the physical one. The facts mentioned in the Qur'aan about the Universe and human body are in itself the falsification test of Grand Qur'aan in the entire timeline.
Grand Qur'aan has thus provided the mechanism of testability of its validity and reliability. After test, the validity and reliability attains the optimum status of absolute conviction and satisfaction:
Certainly this Qur'aan is undoubtedly the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse which is absolutely convincing and satisfying. [56:95]
Therefore, ignoring slanderous propaganda you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] continue exerting for the fulfillment of assigned job by the Name of Sublime Sustainer Lord of you. [56:96]
Take note; It is a fact that it, the Grand Qur'aan, is certainly a reminder, admonition, a reference and frequenting source for those who consciously endeavor to remain cautious, heedful, and mindful avoiding unrestrained conduct. [69:48]
And it is also a fact, Our Majesty certainly knows that there are some contradicters of it amongst you the believers. [69:49]
And that indeed it is a source of frustration-defeat and regret-woe upon the deniers. [69:50]
And certainly this Qur'aan is undoubtedly the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse which is absolutely convincing. [69:51]
Therefore, ignoring slanderous propaganda you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] continue exerting for the fulfillment of assigned job by the Name of Sublime Sustainer Lord of you. [69:52]
Philosophers and scientists have worked hard and devoted their lives in pondering and observing the universe all around them to find answers to the following fundamental questions: [Knowledge and Religious Experience-Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal]
Character and general structure of the universe in which we live;
Is there a permanent element in the constitution of this universe?
How are we related to it? What place do we occupy in it?
What is the kind of conduct that befits the place we occupy?
And fundamental questions of physics and our existence from the point of view of physicists: where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how?
None can answer these questions validly and reliably. One will find answers to these pursuits only in Grand Qur'aan which is described by the epithet: . Humanity will have to revisit Qur'aan and tie with it; otherwise, humanity will remain in loss:
Swearing by the Span of Time: [103:01]
The fact is: Man as a species is certainly heading towards loss-worse state at the concluding point in time than the state-position at the point in time of beginning: [in time span from obeisance of Angels and Paradise to Hell-Prison] [103:02]
Except those who willingly and affectionately accepted-believed and performed moderate righteous deeds;
And they consciously kept themselves embedded-tied with the Infallible Doctrine-Discourse: Grand Qur'aan;
And they convincingly kept themselves remain coolly perseverant and steadfast. [103:03]
For evaluation of validity and reliability of a book, other important factors that are considered in academics are its source, and the publisher-issuer along with identification of bias for reasons of emotional and financial connection. We will next discuss how Grand Qur'aan has addressed these issues relevant to a book.
The reason of inimitability feature of Grand Qur'aan: its source.
