The Quran: Solutions to our problems, Dr Emdad Khan
We all have some day-to-day issues and challenges. Where can we find solutions?
Let us see Surah Al-Roum v58, what Allah SWT says in 30:58:
وَلَقَدۡ ضَرَبۡنَا لِلنَّاسِ فِي هَٰذَا ٱلۡقُرۡءَانِ مِن كُلِّ مَثَلٖۚ وَلَئِن جِئۡتَهُم بِـَٔايَةٖ لَّيَقُولَنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓاْ إِنۡ أَنتُمۡ إِلَّا مُبۡطِلُونَ ٥٨
We have certainly set forth every ˹kind of˺ lesson for people in this Quran.
And no matter what sign you bring to them ˹O Prophet˺,
the disbelievers will say ˹to the believers˺,
“You are only a people of falsehood.”
Allah SWT says we have every kind of lesson and solution for us, as human beings.
So let us look at the Quran as the source to find solutions to our day-to-day life issues.
It has over 6,000 verses, stories of earlier human generations, descriptive stories of 25 prophets and their communities.
If we look with clear vision and insight Insha’Allah we will find solutions. A scholar once said, whenever he faces any issues, he opens the Quran to a random page, and reads and thinks over that page. Every time he finds a solution or clue about the issue.
Let us all when faced with a problem open the Quran, a random page, read and think of the issue and Insha’Allah a solution will come to our mind.
