With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 17 (Bani-Isra’il)
Verse 8: Verily this Qur’an doth guide to that which is most right (or stable), and giveth the Glad Tidings to the Believers who work deeds of righteousness, that they shall have a magnificent reward.
The Quran is here described as a book that guides to Aqwam (from the term Qiyaam) meaning upright or stable. The life style it promotes is one of balance, without extremes. Implementation of the Quran will lead to stability in this life, something that is desperately sought by all societies. But it doesn’t stop there, the results are eternal as Allah promises a further magnificent reward which is the everlasting abode of jannah. Thus we should do our best to implement the quranic code in our lives which will lead to success in this life and the next (akhirah).
