Question 19: Why is the Koran introduced as the final Book, and Islam as the final religion? How could the needs of the modern man be achieved through the laws and rules of 1400 years ago?
“… the nature made by Allah in which He has made human beings; there is no altering of Allah’s creation…” (The Koran: 30:30)
The Holy Koran has mentioned many matters and discussed lots of issues. It talks about theology and rational knowledge, about Creation and Resurrection, metaphysics, the soul, angles and jinn and Satan. It points to the Earth and other planets, to the history of the past people, the prophets and their followers. Sometimes, it brings proverbs, proofs and reasoning, and sometimes enters the moral issues and explains family rights. Once it talks about the seat of government, social order and rules of war; and puts forward lines for worship, treaties, political and economic issues, and canonizes marriage, inheritance, lawful punishments and so on. In all these cases it introduces the best and most interesting realities to human being; realities which are not falsifiable and cannot be refuted by any one. This is what is not essentially possible for human beings to canonize whether totally or partly. This law must be permanent, perfect and above reproach. Hence we see that a short while after a book on any of theoretical sciences is written, many of its theories get disproved, for the more theoretical sciences are discussed and studied, more truths are discovered and the invalidity of the past theories becomes more obvious.
