Resources of Interpretation
This is a very academic though brief
exposition by Imam Farahi on the nature of available resources which
commentators consult for interpreting the word of God. After quoting the
assurance given by the Lord for safety of the Qur’anic text, and promised
explication thereof, Farahi goes on to investigate disciplines like syntax,
logic, Islamic jurisprudence, meter and rhetoric which form part of the
linguistic resources that help in interpreting the Qur’an..
The Dealings and Practices of God
Javed Ahmad Ghamidi maintains, on the authority of the
Holy Qur’an, that there is no way to know God except through an appreciation of
His attributes and how He deals with His creation. Hence the focus of the
present article is God’s dealings and practices with human beings. These include
the trial of life, provision of divine guidance, divine edicts beyond human
capacity, rise and fall of nations, repentance and reward and punishment.
