TURNING AWAY FROM THE HOLY QUR'AN; THE MAIN CAUSE BEYOND THE MUSLIMS' DETERIORATION

Being neither arbitrary nor out of intellectual lavishness, the preference of this complaint has been originated from shrewd insight and thorough investigation in analyzing the current actuality of the Muslims whose situation has been so derogative that they have presented on a golden plate their vital parts as a gift to their enemies represented by Satan, the souls that are prone to evil and the faithless Westerns who have always exerted all efforts for detaching the Muslims from the Holy Qur'an, which is the epitome of their dignity, honor and esteem. Unfortunately, the enemies have succeeded in this respect; we therefore can notice the Muslims' abandonment of the Holy Qur'an. From this cause, anxieties have been aroused in my heart.

 

In plain words, the one and only reason beyond the deterioration, vulnerability and collapse of the Muslim community is the abandonment and lack of holding fast to the rope of Almighty Allah Who has ordered them to cling to it, saying, "And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah stretches out for you and be not divided among yourselves. 3/103"

 

Explicating this rope, the Holy Prophet is reported to have said, "I am leaving among you the two weighty things; the major weighty thing being the Qur'an and the minor weighty thing being my Household—the Ahl al-Bayt. They both are a rope that is stretched between Almighty Allah and you. You shall never be led astray if you adhere to these weighty things. One edge of this rope is in Almighty Allah's Hand while the other is in yours."  [1]
