Belief is a fundamental aspect of morality in the best online Qur’an and schoolchildren have tried to determine the semantic contents of “belief” and “believer” in the Qur’an. The ethical-legal concepts and exhortations that have to do with good behavior are related to a deep awareness of God, and therefore emphasize the importance of faith, responsibility, and belief in the ultimate encounter of each person with God. People are invited to commit acts of charity, especially towards those most in need. Believers who “spend their fortune night and day, in secret and in public” are promised that “they will have their reward with their Lord, fear will not fall on them, nor will they lament.” It also affirms family life by legislating on issues of marriage, divorce, and inheritance.
A number of practices, such as usury and gambling, are prohibited. The Qur’an is one of the fundamental sources of Islamic law (sharia). Some formal religious practices receive significant attention in the Quran, including formal prayers (salat) and fasting in the month of Ramadan. As for the way in which prayer should be conducted, the Qur’an refers to prostration. The term used for charity, zakat, literally means purification. Charity, according to the Qur’an, is a form of self-purification.
The Qur’an has produced a large corpus of comments and explanations. Late Muslims did not always understand the language of the Qur’an, they did not understand certain allusions that seemed clear to the early Muslims, and they were extremely concerned with reconciling the contradictions and conflicts in the Qur’an. The commentators glossed the Arabic, explained the allusions, and, perhaps more importantly, decided which Quranic verses had been revealed first in Muhammad’s prophetic career (which was appropriate for the nascent Muslim community) and which ones had been revealed later. canceling or abrogating the original text, but repeatedly, the Koran affirmed that there were no contradictions and that humans, even if they tried, would not “adjust” the puzzle, an example is an affirmation that every living being in the universe, including the human, has been created from water, but then the Qur’an states that the human was created from clay, Adam and Eve the first humans. The memories of the “occasions of revelation”, that is, the circumstances in which Muhammad had made the revelations public, were also collected, as it was thought that they could explain some obscurities.
For all these reasons, it was extremely important for the commentators to explain how the Qur’an was revealed, when and under what circumstances. Many comments, or tafsir, concerned the story. The earliest tafsir are some of the best sources for Islamic history. Some famous commentators are at-Tabari, az-Zamakhshari, at-Tirmidhi, and Ibn Kathir. Generally, these classical commentaries included all common and accepted interpretations, whereas the commentaries of modern fundamentalists, such as the one written by Sayyed Qutb tend to give only one of the possible interpretations.
Commentators feel very sure of the exact circumstances that motivated some verses, such as the azora Iqra or verses 190-194, from the azora al-Baqara. But in some cases (such as the Azora al-Asr), the most that can be said is which city Muhammad was living in at the time. In other cases, such as the Azora al-Kawthar, the details of the circumstances are in dispute, as different traditions give different versions.
We have revealed it to the Quran with the truth and we have protected it so that it reaches you. We have sent you only as a brightener and advisor.
And we have revealed this Qur’an to you in parts so that you can recite it to men gradually. We have been revealing it to you little by little.
Tell them: whether you believe in him or not, he will do nothing to Allah. Those who were graced with the knowledge from among those who received the above revelations Jews and Christians, when they hear the recitation of the Qur’an they bow down to Allah.
And they say: Glorified be our Lord! Certainly, our Lord’s promise has been fulfilled.
They prostrate themselves before Allah with tears in their eyes, and [the Qur’an] adds to their humility and submission.
Tell them: And may you invoke Him saying: O Allah! Oh, Clemente! Or any other name by which you invoke Him, He will hear you. Know that He possesses the most sublime names [and attributes]. When you make a voluntary prayer, moderate your voice in the recitation, do not do it with a loud voice or in silence.
Make your Lord great, and say: Praise be to Allah! He does not have any children, nor does He have an associate in His sovereignty, nor does He need any helper.
