Use Qur’an as Model [Quote – 417]

May 9, 2013

Writers and scholars – both Muslim and non-Muslim – must use Qur’an as model for their writing. The Qur’an has not one error in it.

Laa Rayiba Feehi!

But Qur’an is perfect not because someone proofread it carefully, but because it is from God.

In sending his own perfect speech to earth in the form of the Qur’an, God Almighty, as in everything else, set a standard for all of us humans – Muslim and non-Muslim – to emulate.

God Almighty made the Qur’an the beacon of perfection toward which all of us humans must strive to move.

Allah’s beloved Prophet, Sayyidina Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, said:

Takhallaqwoo Bi-Akhlaaqwillah.

Call me, Ma’adhallah, Kaafir if you will, but I am going to paraphrase it as:

“Be God-like in who you are and what you do! Cultivate in yourself the most beautiful attributes of God.”

And that in the present context means – in the writing context I mean:

“Write the way God writes and speaks in the Qur’an.”

And that means, Wallahu A’alam, two things, among all the infinite billions and trillions of things it means:

(a) Let your content be perfect in every way.

(b) Let your style be absolutely superb and impeccable.

How can anyone go wrong with “Guidance” (Hudan) like that illumining their path and directing their steps?

And don’t forget the river of Mercy that the Qur’an is laps at everyone’s door, both Muslim and non-Muslim!
