Is Quran a complete Guidance?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Subject: Complete Guidance?


As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

We accept it as a fact that Quran is a complete book and source of knowledge. Is that correct?  If it is, then ofcourse each and every answer should be in the Book. 

What is your opinion?

Is Quran a complete Guidance?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The Quran is a complete and absolute Book of Guidance.  Every question that relates to guidance, will definitely find an answer in this Glorious Book of Allah.  


Lets see how Allah Himself describes His Book:


Allah says in Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah aayat 185:"Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of CLEAR teachings which show the right way and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood."


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verse 89:We have sent down to you this Book, which makes everything plain, and is a guidance,  blessing and good news to those who have surrendered themselves entirely.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 1-3:All praise is for Allah Alone, Who has sent down this Book to His Servant (Mohamed (saws), and assigned nothing crooked to it.  This Book says everything directly, so that he may warn the people of the severe chastisement of Allah and give good news to the believers, who do righteous deeds, that they will have an excellent reward.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 99:We have sent down to you Revelations that clearly expound the Truth, and none but the disobedient reject them.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Isra verse 88:Declare this! Even if human beings and the jinns should co-operate with one another to bring forth a book like the Quran, they would never be able to bring anything like it, even though they all helped one another!


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 157-158:Now that a clear proof, a Guidance and Blessing, has come to you from your Lord,  who can be more unjust than the one who treats Our Revelations as false and turns away from them?   We will inflict the severest torment on those who turn away from Our Revelations because of their aversion.  Do the people now await that the angels should come down before them?  Or that your Lord may Himself come down?  Or that the manifest Signs of your Lord should appear?


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verses 2-3:This is a Book which has been sent down to you.  So, let there be no hesitation in your mind about it.  This has been sent down that you may thereby warn (the disbelievers), and that it may be an Admonition to the believers.   O people, follow what has been sent down to you from your Lord, and do not follow other auliyaas besides Him.  But you seldom take Admonition!


Contrary to popular belief, the Glorious Quran is not a book of science, or medicine, or astronomy, etc. Although the Quran touches several of these subjects if and when needed, it was not revealed to teach us the sciences, although we may take benefit of that.  The Quran was revealed for our guidance, and every question concerning guidance will find an answer in this Glorious Book.  The subjects that are not concerned with guidance, can be learnt by man through experience and research. 


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
