Quran: the Ultimate Guide in All the Affairs

Reference : Dr Javed Jamil

Qur’anic (Dynamic) Paradigm of Health -1 (Quran: the Ultimate Guide in All the Affairs)

Instead of examining Islamic positions in the light of modern sciences, it examines the modern positions in the light of Islam.

The Holy Qur’an is no ordinary work of an ordinary mortal. For the adherents of Islam, it is no less than an absolute conviction that it is a Singular, Supreme and Majestic Work of a Singular, Supreme and Majestic Author – God, the Creator and the Lord of the universe. It is for all times to come, for all parts of the world and for all human generations -- the greatest of all miracles, “the living miracle”, bestowed by God on his Last Messenger, Muhammad (Peace be upon him!). No wonder then that with every passing day in the onward march of the world civilisation, an increasingly growing number of the people across the world are accepting and adopting the Book of God as the Ultimate Guide.
 


Qur’an contains much more than what human brain can imagine, ponder or discover. This Book from the Creator of Universe is surely the Best Possible Book of Guidance for human beings. It not only enunciates social, moral and spiritual laws for human beings, as is usually believed, but it also provides clues to the fundamental universal laws (of Nature) that govern the universe in its entirety, fundamental biological laws that govern living beings and the fundamental principles that govern the human health in all its dimensions.
 


Qur’an contains much more than what human brain can imagine, ponder or discover. This Book from the Creator of Universe is surely the Best Possible Book of Guidance for human beings. It not only enunciates social, moral and spiritual laws for human beings, as is usually believed, but it also provides clues to the fundamental universal laws (of Nature) that govern the universe in its entirety, fundamental biological laws that govern living beings and the fundamental principles that govern the human health in all its dimensions. In the volumes of “Qur’anic Paradigms of Sciences & Society”, we will discuss many of these laws and principles, and will try to develop a number of paradigms of sciences and society based on the verses of Qur’an and their interpretation in words and practice by its original recipient, Muhammad (PBUH), the Last Messenger and Prophet of God.  

My methodology in this work will be to first describe what the contemporary theories and paradigms are, to critically analyse them in the light of the Qur’anic verses, present alternative concepts, discuss their consistence with the Word of God and study their implications. I will discuss a number of issues related to Health, Physics, Economics, Law, Society, Hereafter and Peace, not necessarily in the same order. Other subjects are also likely to be added at a later stage.
 


It will hardly be an overstatement that health has in effect become the captive of economics. The international system of governance is not doing what it needs to do to attain the highest standards of health. Health needs to be liberated without delay and positioned in the driver’s seat with the brakes and the accelerator in its safe possession.
 


The first volume focuses on health. Health relates to the very existence of human beings. Survival and the quality and of survival are undoubtedly the most important aspect of living, both as individuals and collectively as families, communities and societies. Unfortunately, while in principle, the modern boasts of an extraordinary concern for human health, in truth the other interests have largely undermined the interests of health. It will hardly be an overstatement that health has in effect become the captive of economics. The international system of governance is not doing what it needs to do to attain the highest standards of health. Health needs to be liberated without delay and positioned in the driver’s seat with the brakes and the accelerator in its safe possession.

In order to impart leadership role to health, religion has to play the central role because religion alone has the moral authority to make this possible. While every religion has something to offer for the well being of human lives, Islam provides the most comprehensive framework. The present work will highlight the discrepancy between the perception and the reality present in the field of health and will then develop an alternative paradigm based on Qur’an and the other sources related to Qur’an. The new paradigm will surely be a huge advancement on the current paradigm of health being pursued by the world organisations and institutions.

It is to be emphasised here that although the work primarily revolves around the Islamic principles the followers of other religions will also find it close to their hearts and minds. It will be worthwhile here to reiterate that, according to Islamic principles, Muhammad (PBUH) was not the only Messenger of God and Qur’an not the only Book of God. Islam, literally meaning peace and often defined as submission to God, is the Final Version of the System of God successively perfected by more than one hundred thousands of messengers of God and accomplished through a large number of small and large scriptures, Muhammad being the Final Messenger and Qur’an being the Final Book of God. Yet, faith in all the messengers of God that came to almost all the regions of the world and all the God-inspired messages remains an inseparable part of Islamic faith. With most of the world religions having a common origin, the paradigm of health developed here will largely if not wholly reflect the position of almost all of them. If they shed their prejudices, they can combine to make the world cleaner, purer and healthier.
 


Instead of examining Islamic positions in the light of modern sciences, it examines the modern positions in the light of Islam.
 


This work is entirely different from those of some of the renowned Islamic preachers of recent times who, with the aim of proving the divine nature of Qur’an, normally attempt to correlate new scientific researches with the Islamic positions. This one goes much beyond, and focuses on the critical appraisal of the current international concepts, theories, policies, models and paradigms. Instead of examining Islamic positions in the light of modern sciences, it examines the modern positions in the light of Islam. 

The idea about this work got an initial spark way back in 1977 when I was a student of Medicine in King George’s Medical College, Lucknow. While studying the anatomy of brain in the first professional of MBBS, the sensory and motor mapping of the organs of the body on the postcentral and precentral gyrus struck me with an amazing possibility of their correlation with the sequence of the actions performed in the Islamic Ablution (Wudu) and Prayer (Salat or Namaz). Soon I was into writing a paper on “The Anatomical analysis of Wudu”. It was published in several Islamic journals. Incidentally, it was after more than three decades of the publication of the original article that Prof. Abdul Haleem who had become Head of Anatomy Department while I was still in the college discovered that paper in a magazine, and not remembering that I had been his student, he posted a letter to me. He wrote that “I have been a professor of Anatomy and I just wondered at the beauty of the paper, which brought many new aspects to my knowledge.” Then when around 1995 I authored, “Islam and Family Planning”, which critically examined the concept and methods of family planning from Islamic point of view, I received a letter from Prof. L M Nath, internationally renowned epidemiologist and then Director of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, India’s premier medical institute, saying that after reading the book on Family Planning, he strongly felt the need of a similar work on AIDS. In consultation with the Professor, I authored “Islamic Model for Control of AIDS” which he fore-worded; and on the occasion of its release ceremony he described the Model as “the most potent weapon against AIDS.” It was during the compilation of that work, I for the first time used the term “Economic Fundamentalism”, which subsequently became the pivot of almost all my major works. By then I had realised that the health policies of the world and the whole research in the field of medicine have been hijacked by the forces of economics. I started planning to write a full critical analysis of the current international paradigm of health and present an alternative paradigm based on the principles enshrined in Qur’an and Sunnah. As I had also extensively researched the role of the forces of the New World Order in the development of the theories of physics, economics and peace and I felt that most of these theories are not wholly consistent with Islamic positions, I later decided to club the analyses of all of them all in a single treatise comprising four volumes. 

I would like to state at the very outset that the paradigms to be developed in this work represent my understanding of the Holy Book, and human understanding is bound to have errors. What I am attempting is to describe in the language that we know in the modern world what God tells. With the passage of time, hopefully, there will emerge scholars who will understand things in much more comprehensive detail than what the current experts do.
