A man told Abi Dardā' -may God be pleased with him- : “Your brothers from the people of Kūfa send you their greetings” He said: “You too offer them back my greetings, and tell them to resign themselves completely to the Qur’ān for it will guide them to the intent and ease, and spare them the injustice and roughness”. Meaning: make the Qur’ān like the rein or punch in one’s nose, follow it and work by it".
Living in the shade of the Qur’ān is a great blessing that can be fully appreciated only by those who experience it. It is a great blessing that gives meaning to life and makes it worth-living. I am deeply thankful to God the Almighty for blessing me with this uplifting experience for a considerable time, which was the happiest and most fruitful period of my life - a privilege for which I am eternally grateful. Indeed, it is a godly honour to feel that God the Almighty should be addressing me, a humble and insignificant human being, with the blessing and inspiring words of the Qur’ān.
The Qur’ān is the pre-eternal translator of these creatures; the sempiternal interpreter of the various tongues constantly reciting the verses of creation; the commentator of the great book of the Universe; the discloser of the treasures of the Divine Names concealed in the heavens and on the earth; the key to the verities hidden beneath the lines of events; the tongue of the Unseen World in the Manifest World; the treasury of the favors of the pre-eternal and Divinely addresses, and the Most Merciful and perpetual attentions; the foundation, plan, and sun of the spiritual world of Islam, and the sacred map of the worlds of the hereafter; the distinct expounder, lucid exposition, articulate proof, and clear translator of the Divine Essence, attributes, Names and deeds; it is the instructor of the world of humanity; the water and light of Islam; the true wisdom of mankind; and the true guide and leader urging humanity to prosperity and happiness. It is both a book of law and wisdom, and a book of prayer and worship, and a book of command and appeal, and a book of invocation and thought - it is a book for all spiritual needs; and it is a sacred library offering books and treaties fitting for the various ways and different paths of all the saints and veracious ones, the wise and the learned, which suits the illuminations of each way and enlightens it, and is appropriate for the course of each path and depicts it.
With its acute and miraculous expositions, the Noble Qur’ān rends the veil of familiarity and habit casted over all the beings in the Universe which are known solely as ordinary things but are all extraordinary and miracles of Divine Power. The Qur’ān reveals those astonishing wonders to conscious beings. It attracts their gazes to the eloquent lessons it embodies for admonition and opens up before their minds an inexhaustible treasure of knowledge.
