With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Surah 17 (Bani-Isra’il)
Mercy and benevolence brought by the Quran
Verse 82 “We send down (stage by stage) in the Qur’an that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe: to the unjust it causes nothing but loss after loss”
If we reflect on pre-Islamic Arabia, we find that it was chaotic. The people were consumed by hatred, violence and lawlessness and compare that to the post Quranic era where we find law, order, love, mercy and compassion. It was the implementation of the Quran that made this transformation. Thus the Quran was the source that healed the society by bringing with it law and order. It was a mercy in that it saved the society from meeting with destruction and brought about a benevolent and caring society.
In today’s chaotic times, mankind require the “healing” and the “mercy”, both of which exist in the Quran but will only be experienced, if we implement the Quran in our lives.
