The entire perception of most of the religious text including the book Quran is wrongly focused on idolizing or vilifying the personalities rather than concentrating on real objective of the knowledge of the subject matter. The more we increase in exoteric knowledge, the more we drift away from the original message of those religious texts.
The ancient religious scriptures were not meant for worldly knowledge (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography, Astronomy, Oceanography, Orology or body anatomy . There are better books available if we need to understand those important subjects.
The core theme of any religious scriptures that I am aware of is 'KNOW YOUR SELF'



All spiritual knowledge is for well being of our spirit that is unfortunately turned into religious dogma.
Spiritual knowledge is the food / provision (rizq) for our internal world which we must possess all the time. This Spiritual knowledge when turns into spiritual energy, helps us to boost our happiness, peace and overcome all type of tension and depression.
Boosting our energy to fight our internal enemies is the main purpose of all religious scriptures. The philosophy of Islam is about love and fighting or overcoming our internal enemies, it has nothing to do with materialistic world.
Spiritual knowledge has nothing to do with materialistic knowledge or attachments however it helps us to develop us to face the cruel / unjust world. Worldly knowledge can be taught in school and colleges that helps us to understand the immediate necessities of life or material world.
Spiritual knowledge helps us to face the challenges of the material world, it control or balance all type of fear, greed, temptation and insecurities that causes imbalances in our life.
The spiritual knowledge and materialistic knowledge does not complement each other on the contrary the spiritual knowledge is a shield that stops the worldly attachments to enter in our pure, uncorrupted system of conscience.

The entire drama of this life is an illusion. We are spiritual beings experiencing the material world around us. Our purpose is to understand / recognize the senses (bashar) behind the mask of our skin. The process of unlearning is like the peeling off of Onion that brings tears from the eyes. Each passing moment is an illusion which we are not able to realize. The eyes and the brain does not have the capacity to see the ultimate truth, for that we need to have farsighted insight and an evolved mind. Our ego and pride is based on the gratification from our materialistic possession. Past is gone, present goes within the blink of a second and future is figment of our imagination.

The day we recognize the fact about ourselves, it will be the moment of our real establishment (yaum al-qiyamah), that will be the moment of our recognition (Arafah) and the manifestation of knowledge (ashrun malumaatun).

We have eyes but we lack the insight that's why we cannot witness / see / experience (shahadah) the knowledge of the spiritual world (alameen) confined inside us. The book Quran is all about the journey / pilgrimage and paying the homage to the house of thoughts (bayatullah) or to spiritual world inside us.

The spiritual aspect is hard to understand for worldly people that's why it is not for everyone to take this spiritual journey or path. It is only for rare human beings who dare to afford it and ready to lose the worldly pleasures. The pilgrimage is not for those who can afford the expenses of visa, ticket and hotel accommodation to Saudi Arabia. Hajj is an internal journey of recognizing our self, our true Master.

We need to realize that our true identity is not our physical body. Physical body is just like clothes we wear but the real entity or set-up is within that is beyond the reach of our physical eyes. Whatever we are doing, practicing, tasting is for our mortal body.

We are not aware that we are immortal beings and our needs are different than this temporary world. The food or provision of our spiritual world is the connection with our real Self. Physical body or the world around us is just a short time illusion or enjoyment that carries an expiry date. The moment our deep sleep is broken we awake to the reality of spiritual world.

The messages of various philosophies of the axial age are same. If we realise it, it is a revelation for us otherwise it is just an idle tales (lahwa al-hadith). According to the book Quran without the awareness of self we are not alive but mentally dead or asleep.

The Designer is not separate from its design just like a drop of water is not different from H2O / or a fish without water is a dead fish. Can we separate them? We need to understand this paradox of life. Self trying to understand the Self is the biggest riddle of life. We are not separate; we are nothing without that Energy / Allah / Atma / Soul / Ruh / Spirit / Nafs / Rabb / Consciousness / Breath of Air. We are the part and parcel of that Evolutionary Spirit, infact we are the spirit in motion. Our journey is to become the Spirit from the spirit. We have everything inside us for that spiritual journey but that does not mean that we need to ignore our physical world and it's responsibilities.

Salat is that permanent bridge which connects our mortal being with our immortal self. Salat is our ladder of ascent (miraj) from the lower conscious level (ardh) to higher conscious level (samawaat).

We all are well aware about the world we live in. Majority among us know how to live a decent life. We know what our responsibilities are as a denizen of this world. We don't require any catalogue to operate ourselves. We don't check at every moment our needs, requirements and method to fulfill those day to day errands from any book. In short we are well aware about the material or mortal world.

The book Quran's main focus is not material world because we already know it. Its main focus is spiritual world which cannot be seen (gayab), our immortal world, our unending world (aakhirah), our main life line. The book Quran discusses our self (nafs), our spirit (ruh) our peace of mind (islam), our mental death (maut), our inner voices (rasuls), the inbuilt information (nabiyeen), the ego (satan) the hidden enlightenment (jannah), the hidden hell (jahannam), our hidden urges (nisa), our community of different thoughts (qaum), our correctional process (ummah) our embedded script (kitab) that shows our direction (qibla) our purpose of living.

Our permanent awakening to the unseen is our Qiyamah. Al-Qiyamah is not a dooms day but the day when we understand our own Quran that is the day of awakening when old thoughts and firm beliefs (jabal) fly like a cloud of wool.

Understanding our Quran means understanding the criterion (furqan), understanding Allah and Rasul and living with them eternally. Not easy. The path to spiritual world goes through the path of material world. This I have realized it very late in life. Life is made up of ups and downs, we need to balance (mizaan) it and this is very important in life.

One of my sister asked me ...

The verse Rehman, alamal Quran, (55:1-2), is it past tense ayat or present tense ayat ?
My answer:
First we need to know what is Quran and who is the recipient of the message of the Quran.

The recipient of the Quran (not the book) is the evolved man (Insaan) and not an ordinary man (Adam driven out from Jannah).

The book Quran is narrated with the help of personified examples (misaal).
We never question the tense of maths problem when the teacher teaches us with the help of examples. Same way we need to understand the examples (misaal) of the book Quran.

The statement that 1) the Rehman - 2) taught the Quran (not the book) - 3rd verse is - He evolved Insaan (not mankind).

Not everyone is evolved upto the level of Insaan. A very vast majority of men are at the stage of Adam (ordinary man). They have not reached or evolved to the position of Insaan.

Important is not whether the verse is past or present or future tense. Important is what message we are able to derive from it.

The moment we say it is an ayaat (signs) that means it is applicable, valid in the current scenario. The word ayaat (signs) is used when the happening is live. The signs are always valid in the current situations and are never used for past events.
The ayaats are addressed to those readers who are evolved or those who know the meaning in the signs.

The ayaah simply says that the Teacher of the Quran is Rehman. But we assume that the word Quran means 114 chapter Book in Arabic language.

In ayaat 2:31 the Quran says He taught Adam al-asmaa (characters, attributes, names, identification - this ayat is pointing or emphasizing the function of Allah, that is to teach, evolved Mankind from the level of Adam. We will not say that the event happened in the past and now this verse is defunct and of no use today.

The entire book Quran is written in theophany format (tamsili). There are lessons in the parables for us to understand and not see whether the events happened in the past or they are stories of the past.

Islam is against the glorifications of language, place, personalities, books, scholars, gurus.

The book Quran has life lessons for maintaining a peaceful mind which are molded in parables.

We just need to take lessons from it and not to consecrate it. We take lessons from many movies or fictional stories but we never ask whether the story happened in the past or is it relevant today. This is because we know it is just a story.

The book Quran says many times that the signs are qasas (lessons from which we can deduct lessons) and misaal (parables or examples).

Important is to take lessons from those parables and not to hate or sanctify the characters of the parables.

Debating on nuance of language of any story is useless nonetheless when the book Quran itself emphasis that the narratives are best parables.

The writings or the script of the book Quran are called ayaat (signs), that means those signs are valid and are applicable today also furthermore they are meant to instruct or influence (surah) us.

Hope I am able to explain my point 🙏
