The Quran and the Counter Movement


It’s all well and good conducting a deep research into the Quran. It keeps our faith and conceptual framework strong. We are able to see how the Quran continues to unveil deeper and deeper layers of truth to us. I for one am continually amazed by this. However, this is not why we’re here on earth. As the Quran itself says, we are here to serve (51/56). We all serve something. The best of course is to serve Allah.

What do I mean by the counter-movement? I mean the movement which counters the enslaving nature of current world politics. How does the Quran play a role in this? The Quran opposes oppression and slavery. It wants everyone to be masters of their own domain, not to be slaves of others. Indeed that was the nabi’s statement when he says ‘kunoo rabbaniyeen’ (3/79)

How does the Quran stand in this counter movement though?

will continue later..
