All the praises and thanks are to Allah,
Who has sent down to His slave (Muhammad s.a.w.) the Book (the Qur’an)
and has not placed therein any crookedness.
[Al-Kahf 18:1]

Allah s.w.t. begins by praising His Holy Self for revealing the Qur’an to His Noble Messenger Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam which is the greatest blessing that Allah has granted to mankind.

Allah s.w.t. is the One to be praised in all circumstances. But for us, self-praise is considered to be a vice because we have so many defects and we keep making so many mistakes. And whatever good qualities that we have are bestowed to us by Allah, so what right do we have to boast about ourselves?

Allah s.w.t. then says there is no room for any deviation in the Qur’an. What it means is that no matter how ideology or culture changes – one thing will not change and that is the Qur’an. Its values, principles, and truth are straight and clear as how it was first revealed. Societies’ values may change, but what is right and what is wrong in this Book are timeless. Hence the Qur’an does not and will not adjust to social pressure. What was right in 1714 & 1514 will STILL be right in 2034 & 2054!

May Allah s.w.t. protect us from any deviation and guide us on the Straight Path. Ameen.
