The Quran Asks 39-09


Surah az-Zumar, Chapter 39: Verse 9

At first, The Quran Asks:

… ۗ أَمَّنْ هُوَ قَانِتٌ آنَاءَ اللَّيْلِ سَاجِدًا وَقَائِمًا يَحْذَرُ الْآخِرَةَ وَيَرْجُو رَحْمَةَ رَبِّهِ

Is he who devoutly prostrates and stands (for worship) during the hours of night, being cautious of the hereafter, and hopes for the mercy of his Fosterer (equal to one who does not do this)?…

Then the Qurans responds to this query by asking Rasoolullah Salla Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam to SAY:

قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الَّذِينَ يَعْلَمُونَ وَالَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ ۗ إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ…

…Say (O Muhammad Salla Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam), “Are those who know and those who do not know equal?” Only men of understanding are mindful.

How beautiful is the question and the answer? So the faith of a Muslim is not blind faith, Quran is tickling our minds to think by asking questions and responds and satisfies the soul by providing answers to those questions. In this ayah the answer is another question.
