DYNAMIC SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE:

The Holy Quran is the dynamic source of Knowledge.

Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (as) has said, Know that it (Quran) contains knowledge of what is to come, stories of the past, cure for your ills and regulation for whatever faces you. (Nahjul-Balaghah)

Imam Ali ibn al-Husayn Zaynul-Aabideen (as) has said, The Quranic verses are treasures of knowledge. Every time a treasure is opened, you must see what lies in it”. (Uddah al-Daee)

TRUE SOURCE OF GUIDANCE:

These are the verses of the Quran and a manifest Book, a guidance and good news for the faithful(27:2)

These are the verses of the wise Book, a guidance and mercy for the virtuous. (31:2-3)

The Holy Prophet (saww) has said, Whenever the affairs become dubious as a dark night for you, resort to Quran, for it is an intercessor whose intercession is accepted and it is a witness that has been acknowledged. Whoever takes it as a guide, it will lead him to Paradise and anyone who turns his back to it, it will push him into Fire. It is the clearest guide towards the best ways. Whoever speaks by it shall be accepted; whoever judges by it shall have done justice; and whoever acts upon it shall be rewarded. (Uddah al-Daee)

He (saww) also said, If a person, whom Allah has given Quran, thinks that others have something better than it, then surely he has underestimated a great thing and overestimated a small thing. (Al-Kaafi)

[Harith al-A’ war came to Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (as) and said, O Master of the Faithful! When we are with you, we hear what strengthens our faith but when we leave you, we hear things that are different, which we do not understand it. (It appears that some people were distorting the teachings of Islam)

Imam (as) asked, Is this what they have done?

Harith replied, Yes.

Thereupon, the Imam (as) said, I heard the Holy Prophet (saww) saying: Jibrael came to me and said: O Muhammad! There shall be temptations in your nation. I asked: What is the outlet from this? He (Jibrael) said: The Book of Allah. There is in it the information before you, and the news of after you, and regulation for whatever faces you. (Meezan al-Hikmah)
