To Human Nature

Maulana Abul Kalam AzadThe Tarjuman al-Qur’an1968

The Qur’an repeatedly addresses itself to human nature and invites an answer from its very depths.

“Say: Who supplied you sustenance from the heavens, and the earth? Who hath power over hearing and sight? And who bringeth forth the living from the dead, and bringeth forth the dead from the living? And who ruleth over all things?

They will surely say: ‘God,’ Then say:

What! Will yet not therefore be mindful of Him? Such then is God, your true Lord: and when truth is gone, what remaineth but error? How then are ye so perverted?”

Surah: Yusuf (Joseph) – Chapter 10: Verses: 31-32
