LESSONS LEARNT FROM THE HOLY QUR'AN'S METHOD

It seems proper to refer to some lessons that are derived from the method of the Holy Qur'an's reforming and guiding the communities to the right path.

 

 

Fourth Lesson

The fourth lesson that we must learn from the method of the Holy Qur'an is the observance of and the invitation of the people's attentions to the basic foundations of the ummah's entity without which it cannot be preserved. The Holy Prophet focused very much on the duties that he predicted to be neglected after him, such as enjoining the right and forbidding the wrong, the divinely commissioned leadership of the Muslim community (namely Imamate), the loyalty to the believers, the disavowal of the unbelievers, the love for the Holy Prophet's relatives, the adherence to the Holy Qur'an and the Ahl al-Bayt and the perseverance on attending in the mosques and the congregational prayers in general and the Friday Prayer in particular.

As immediately as the Holy Prophet departed the ummah, the Muslims neglected all these foundations that would preserve their entity and thus their downward slope began hastily. From this cause, any return to righteousness and reformation must pass through the renewal of the roles of these foundations in the life of the Muslim community.
