Quran Aur Noor e Imamat (Urdu)



Praise be to Allah for His favours that the useful book "The Holy Quran and the Light of Imamat (Quran awr Nur-i Imamat)" has been published having passed through the stage of calligraphy and printing. The most fundamental and the most important concept of the Ismaili Tariqah, which is the perpetual and inseparable link of the Holy Quran and the Light of Imamat is discussed in this lovely and desired book. The subject, in itself, is so vast and so great, that it covers the rest of the religious subjects.

The first proof of this fact is that according to verse (Holy Quran 65:5) the Holy Quran is amr (command) and according to verse (Holy Quran 4:59) the true Imam is sahib-i amr (lord of command). Since the command and the lord of command comprise everything of religion, there can be no subject, word or deed of religion beyond their spiritual domain.
Another proof of this fact is that the Quran is the Book of God in which there is the explanation of everything (Holy Quran 16:89) and the Imam of the time is the holy personality in whom is encompassed everything (Holy Quran 36:12). A wise mumin can estimate the infinite vastness of the domain of knowledge and wisdom of the Quran and the Imam from theses proofs.

It is necessary for a true mumin to know the principle that there are many names ordained for the Quran and the Imam. Thus, whenever in the Divine Speech the Quran is mentioned, the Imam is also necessarily mentioned and vice versa, because neither is the Book without the Teacher, nor the Teacher without the Book. By reflecting for a little while this unchangeable law of religion will be clear that with every perfect and complete thing there are its accessories too, otherwise it remains incomplete. Thus, according to verse (Holy Quran 5:3), the perfection of Islam and the completion of the Divine favour mean that with the Quran has to last its Teacher also and this has continued as a fact.

The fountainhead of all fundamental and real beauties of the religion of Islam at the time of Prophethood was the Holy Prophet himself. It was he who was the luminous lamp (Holy Quran 33:46), the light of the Quran (Holy Quran 5:15) and the Teacher of heavenly Book (Holy Quran 2:151). After his demise this position is held by his successor, who is the Imam of the time.

The Hadith in which the Holy Prophet has linked Mawla Ali to Mawlana Harun means that he, with exception of Prophethood, had , had all those perfect attributes which Hazrat Harun had, because after the Holy Prophet there was no prophet. This wisdom-filled Hadith opens a special door to the recognition of the Imam for the true Mumins, which is related to deep study of the Quranic Story of Hazrat Musa and Hazrat Harun.

Just as the people of the world cannot make a guidebook for themselves without a heavenly Book, they themselves are not able to be its Teacher, who is revealed from God. Thus it has been perpetual law of the religion of nature that, not only is the Book revealed from God, but its Teacher is also appointed by Him, so that he, with Divine grace and help, may teach the people the Book and Wisdom according to their capacity.
