Other Religion Paper- the Quran
Quran is the Islamic holy book, said to be the word of Allah. The book was verbally revealed to Muhammad by Angel Gabriel and recorded in Arabic. The book consists of a hundred and fourteen units of different lengths, which are referred to as suras; the first one being part of the ritual prayer. The suras touch upon numerous aspects of human existence, including matters of, social organization, doctrine, and finances.
The main reason I chose the Quran is its close resemblance to the Bible; a widely known and relatable religious text. I also chose the Quran because most issues concerning how human beings relate to one another are clearly articulated. The Quran also carries lots of originality as it is mainly in Arabic; carefully ensuring the non-dilution of the word.
The teachings of the Quran often concentrate on Allah’s design of the institution of life, and how and why Muslims should respect it. The Quran is integral in human guidance and education (Pashib, Khaqani and Bahrainian 137). It also puts emphasis on the fact that Allah should be accorded respect for He is the most authoritative being. The sections below focus mainly on the financial lessons as written in al-Baqarah.
The al-Baqarah teaches spending discipline; that spending should be done in Allah’s
