To Seek Knowledge of God?
Maulana Abul Kalam Azad – The Tarjuman al-Qur’an – 1968
What then is the road one should take to seek knowledge of God? The Qur’an says there is but one road to it, and that is to reflect over the phenomenal world of creation. The study of an invention takes the student, so to say, directly into the very presence of the inventory himself.
“Those who bear God in mind, standing, sitting and reclining, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and of the earth, they will say: ‘O Lord! Thou has not created all this in vain.’”
Surah: Al-‘Imran (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chapter: 3 – Verse: 191
