The abolition of the term “renewal of the religious discourse” is an urgent necessity
There is no way for Muslims to get out of the dark tunnel that we have lived and are still living in until today except through returning to the divine Speech – the Holy Quran. The divine speech gives us the light that will illuminate our minds and elevate our souls and fill us with mercy, love and justice. The book of Allah will provide us with peace so we will be able to consider the purpose of the verses. Allah Almighty wants his creation to live in a good way.
It is not possible for Muslims to get out of the dark tunnel that we have lived and still live until today except by returning to the divine speech – the Holy Quran. From it, we should draw the light that illuminates our minds and raise our souls and fill them with mercy, love and justice. We draw inspiration from the Book of Allah towards the path of peace. We should try to understand the divine objective for His creation so we can gain the great reward in the day when money and sons will be useless and when it is only the good deeds, the obedience of Allah and following his guidance will be rewarded.
Therefore, I suggest that at a time when Muslims are considering renewing the religious speech, it is necessary to stop using the term “religious speech”. This is because many incongruous persons have narrated tales, novels or a fairy tales. These false tales have been considered as religious speech. In fact, the origin that includes the message of Islam is the word of Allah and the Qur’an verses.
Let us all think of recalling historical moments fourteen centuries ago, in which we envision ourselves, in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), informing us of the message of Allah in his clear book and recites the Holy Qur’an as Allah Almighty has ordered him in the verse: “Allah has been gracious to those whose hearts have been touched with the divine hand. He raised in their midst a Messenger who is related to them by kinship and by spiritual qualities into which they all entered. He is a Messenger who shall recite to them His revelations, impart sanctity to them and teach them the Book -the Quran- and acquaint their hearts with wisdom, notwithstanding that they were once lost in the maze of error and liberally swam in immoral pleasure”.. (Al-‘Imran: 164).
We receive the verses from the Prophet, he teaches us wisdom, and he explains to us what came in the book of Allah of the rule and the preaching and values. He teaches us the rituals of worship, prayer, zakat, fasting and Hajj to the House of Allah and the legislation that show us right and wrong, Allah has held His messenger responsible for informing all people of the divine approach, saying: “O you the Messenger: Proclaim and intimate all that has been revealed to you from Allah, your Creator, and if you do not, then you Will have not proclaimed His message. Under His tutelage, Allah protects you from the people who are characterized by acts of prepensed malice and hostile intentions. Indeed Allah does not guide to His path of righteousness those who are. Given to infidelity” (Al-Maida: 67)
And the Almighty said: (Should they yet O Muhammad turn a deaf ear, you incur no blame, for you are responsible only for relating the divine message and the illucidation of its text.). (Al Nahl: 82)
And the Almighty says: (And We either show you O Muhammad in your life time some part of the retributive punishment We promised them or occasion your death before. You are only responsible for relating the divine message and We are responsible for their trial in Day of judgement.). (Al Ra’d: 40)
We continue to listen to what the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) calls upon us to read the verses of the Holy Quran and explains to us its purposes, which call upon people to their benefit and achieve their improvement, security and peace in moments that were not contaminated by the various doctrines and where there were no sects or groups.
We learn from him – peace be upon him – the approach of the divine speech, which orders us to follow the Qur’an and not to rely on the conclusions of human attributed to the companions of the Prophet or others who set themselves as the scholars, the authors and religious specialists and sheikhs of Islam. In Islam, there are no sheikhs of Islam, imams, priests or holy men. There are faithful individuals who worship Allah, follow His religion and follow the holy messenger, where the Almighty said: « And you people, act, in accordance with all that has been revealed to you from Allah, your Creator, and take not besides Allah tutelary guardians; they will influence you to revert in character to your aboriginal stocks. How little you people keep Allah in mind. ». (Al A’raf: 3)
There are no human interpretations or religious speeches. Rather, it is one divine speech, one messenger and one imam who recites the verses of Allah to the people to bring them out of the darkness to the light, teaching them their religion, which Allah has given them and warning them of stay away from the book of Allah and the legislations that will protect them from the aggression of one another to live in prosperity and peace.
