A Source Of WIsdom

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

Another aspect that the Qur’an’s importance can be seen and understood
is by looking it as:

A SOURCE OF WISDOM.

Surah Yaseen, ayah 2 and 3:

وَالْقُرْآنِ الْحَكِيمِ {2}
[Shakir 36:2] I swear by the Quran full of wisdom

إِنَّكَ لَمِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ {3}
[Shakir 36:3] Most surely you are one of the messengers

“I swear by the Quran full of wisdom.”

In this holy verse the Lord of the worlds swears by the Quran, which itself is a true testimony to the messenger ship of Muhammad (‘s).
This shows extreme nicety of the holy verse, which, if you ponder over it, has both sworn and presented a proof of its stand. Quran itself is a witness to the truth that Muhammad (‘s) is a Messenger of God!

The phrase, “full of wisdom” implies that whatever knowledge we have is from this Holy Book. How amazing is it that we have a gift right in front of us but yet we tend to ignore it at times. Surely, this is not an ordinary book which can be written by anyone and that is why we see that the challenge is open, “Say: If men and jinn should combine together to bring the like of this Quran, they could not bring the
like of it, though some of them were aiders of others.”

Then how is it that this book (Quran) is full of the foremost and the latest sciences? And whatever is necessary for mankind, a variety of
sciences. Is there any room for doubting that it is sent only by Almighty God? It is before your own eyes that Muhammad (‘s) passed
forty years of his life in Mecca. He has not come from any other place. Is there anyone who can claim that he had a teacher or he went
to a school? So these sciences are definitely not his own. Necessarily they are from Almighty God.
