Indeed, the Noble Qur’aan is the Book of Allaah which is the Seal of all the Scriptures… it is the course for a complete life that ensures prosperity and happiness for the servant in this life and in the Hereafter. It is the inimitable Word of Allaah that is not approached by falsehood neither from before it nor from behind it.

Before the advent of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam), Mankind was in the darkness of shirk and kufraan (disbelief) until the Messenger (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam) came with the Book of Allaah ‘azza wa jall, to take this entire universe out from this darkness into the lights of Tawheed and Imaan – and for this reason, Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’aala has said about this great Book,

“…(This is) a Book which We have revealed unto you in order that you might lead mankind out of darkness into light by their Lord’s Leave to the Path of the All-Mighty, the Owner of all Praise.” [Ibrahim: 1]

So this Ummah (Nation) turned around with this Book and turned away from shirk and jahiliyyah (ignorance) towards guidance and tawheed, away from the worship of creation to the worship of the Lord of creation and went from being an Ummah that lived along the margins of life to one that took leadership over Mankind and steered it towards the success of both worlds.

The Noble Qur’aan came to train up an Ummah, to produce a society and to build a wellfunctioning system… this training requires a portion of time and it needs to have an effect. It needs to act upon a Word and it needs to have a movement that expresses these actions and effects into a visible reality for the people.

Contemplate over the saying of ‘Aisha (radi’Allaahu ‘anhaa) when she was asked about the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam), she said – as is narrated in Sahih Muslim – “His character was the Qur’aan.”

So whoever wishes to take on the character of the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam), then he needs to take hold of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah of the leader of Mankind (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam).
