DO WE REALLY NEED A GUIDE OR A MESSENGER:
“Muslims” all over the world acknowledge only one book as their valid document and that is the Quran. They revere this book more than any other book or literature but very few depend on it for guidance and direction.
Al-Quran the book considered to be the best compass by which the Arabs of past navigated their entire course of life is now been made an object of ridicule by the actions of today’s “Believers”.
Absurdly this is the only book in the world that is rote read and recited daily widely by its followers only for earning “huge rewards” rather than for understanding its contents.
Those who claim to have understood the book actually understood the different versions of various interpretations of their respective scholars they believe to be the exact interpretation of the original message of the book Quran the 114 chapter book. The “Muslims” will apply their mind in every big and small affair but when it comes to understanding the book Quran their mind gets numb as if they are facing some big monster.
It is really a pity that the man one of the best creation of the nature does not use his own sense / logic and relies on other man or books for guidance for his day to day routine work. This is an insult to the dignity of man and his intellect. A Man can only give advice to another man but the onus for following the advice remains the prerogative of that man who had been advised. The book Quran clearly states many times that one should use reason and verify any message before believing it (17:36) (25:73).
Man fails to realize that the main crucial book of guidance is available inside him (21:10) (18:54) which he fails to recognize (2:146) (6:20). Without having a glance on his / her inherent book [Al-Kitab] he immediately runs and tries to looks for outside help / guidance.
I can’t understand why people need guidance from “holy messengers” when they don’t even bother to ponder on the available inherent messengers constantly sending out messages to them (9:128) (10:16) (23:32) (37:72) (43:6) (49:7) (3:101) (3:164) (4:59) (2:139) (2:151) (3:81).
