”…look at the teachings of the Holy Quran. It is a great Miracle. It conforms with natural demands to such an extent that no other teaching can be compared with it. This teaching goes to perfect and make complete all the blessings of the previous Scriptures…”
“With the Grace of God and through His Mercy, we find that the Fruits and the Blessings of the teachings of the Holy Quran are there even today and all the effects and Blessings that could ever accrue to the perfectly obedient followers of the Holy Prophet, sallallaho alaihi wa sallam, can be had even now. God has established this Dispensation so that it may be a living testimony to the truth of Islam and it may prove to the world that the Blessings that the perfect obedient followers could have thirteen centuries ago, can be had even today. And the fact is that hundreds of Signs have been shown so far. We have invited the leaders of all religions to show us the truth of their dispensation, as compared with what we would show them. But not one of them has come forward to accept the invitation of ours.
We take the word of God to be a perfect miracle and very confidently claim that there is no other Scripture that can be favourably compared with it. I assert with great certainty that anything picked from the Holy Quran would prove to be a Sign and a miracle.
For example, look at the teachings of the Holy Quran. It is a great Miracle. It conforms with natural demands to such an extent that no other teaching can be compared with it. This teaching goes to perfect and make complete all the blessings of the previous Scriptures.
I should like to make mention of just one aspect. The Torah (Whether in view of the prevailing circumstances or because “of some sort of necessity) lays stress on retaliation: -eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth. As against this, the teaching of the Gospels lays stress on pardoning the offender and showing patience so much so that it says· that if one is slapped on one cheek, he should show the other cheek also for being slapped, or going with somebody for two miles if he asks for one mile, or giving away the coat when somebody asks for the shirt .
We find that the teachings of Torah and the Gospels go to the opposite extremes. But so far as the Holy Quran is concerned, its teachings are based on wisdom, moderation and the prevailing circumstances. You may look at any teaching of the Holy Quran, you will find that it stresses the point that we must find out the circumstances and then decide as to what would really suit the occasion. We do agree that the required outcome of all the teachings is the same but nobody can doubt that the Torah and the Gospels have laid stress only on one aspect – this way or that way – whereas the Holy Quran has stressed the point that the demands of the occasion should be kept in view”.
