Qur'an Majeed Series | Introduction - Syedi Mukasir Saheb AAB

10 December 2016

In this introduction video, Mukasir-ud-Da'wat Syedi Husain Bhaisaheb Burhanuddin AAB explains the motivation behind the Qur’an series and what it endeavors to accomplish. First, he emphasizes and explains the fundamental importance of the Qur’an Majeed. He then quotes Quranic ayats that demonstrate the Qur’an Majeed’s all encompassing nature and its critical role in every day and age for guidance. Syedi Mukasir Saheb AAB explains that ayats in the Qur’an have a zaahir (literal meaning) and a taawil (hidden meaning), but that often, it is only the taawil meaning that is meant. The literal meaning in such ayats is not applicable as it does not – upon a close examination – provide a rationally understandable interpretation. Such ayats serve as irrefutable indicators towards the existence of deeper hidden meaning in the Qur’an viz. taawil, and emphasize the need for an interpreter in each day and age who is the true inheritor of the knowledge of the Qur’an from Rasulullah SA viz. the Imam and Dai.

Syedi Mukasir Saheb AAB points out that in each chapter of this series, he will put forward one example from such ayats where the literal meaning is not meant, and only the taawil is to be taken as the true interpretation.
