    Surely Quran is Furqan, distinguishing between good and bad. It is a manual for us. By understanding quran we can surely become good muslims.

    The Qur’an teaches us to worship Allah Alone and not worship any gods beside Him or associate any partners with Him.

    ﴾And [mention] when Luqman said to his son while he was instructing him, “O my son, do not associate [anything] with Allah. Indeed, association [with Him] is great injustice.”﴿

    Assalamualikum to all,
    If we muslims understand the power of Monotheism(Towheed) through Quran then with no doubt our ummah condition would change. During Companions(r.anhuma) time there was both Message(Quran) and the Messenger(Prophet(pbuh)). The same message was conveyed to Companions(r.anhuma) and history was registered since they followed each step in Quran. What about us? Are we really following the Quran or are we just reciting with our throats and nothing reaching the heart? Every Muslim must question whether 1. I am i following the business ethics which has been warned in Surah al-Mutaffifeen(83);2. Whether i am i practising Iman in my heart or Just lip-service.3. Social problems in today’s world and their solutions in Quran. The only difference between machines and human beings is Common sense which can only be found if they think. And so, Quran wants us to think and ponder. Just reciting wont provide any good outcome.
