In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent the Most Merciful,
Dear reader, in this post we will by the permission of our Kind Lord look at a verse that exhorts us to reason.
لَقَدْ أَنزَلْنَا إِلَيْكُمْ كِتَابًا فِيهِ ذِكْرُكُمْ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ
“We have certainly sent down to you a Book in which is your mention. Then will you not reason?”
Ibn Abbas the famous exegete of the Quran explained that Dhikrukum (translated above as your mention) means honor for you.
The Book which has been sent down is the Quran. It discusses us and our own affairs and problems of life.It describes our own nature,beginning and end.It discriminates between good and evil and presents high moral qualities which our won consciences endorse and confirm.
Will we then not understand this blessing,reason and accept it?
Praise is due to Allah who sent down the Quran.
and Allah knows best.
Asalaam aleykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh(May peace and the Mercy and Blessings of Allah be upon you)
