Discerning: The Mission of Al-FurQan الفرقان/ the Discernment
The root word of فرقان / FurQan = فرق (Determining factor that makes for a distinct change; Difference) ; and the distinct change consists of: Time; People, and Level of science and knowledge. Al-FurQan, consists of the discernment of verses of the Qur’an through our contemporary Science; as well as the definition and clarification of the prayers of the Qur’an, that are mostly for removing, distancing and protecting oneself from sins / pollution (Ch.8:29) :
8:29 “O You who believed, if you fear All’h, He will Set up a discernment/ furQan for you, and divert your sins from you, and absolves them for you, and الله is the Detainer of the Great Grace.”
Not only is each word and prayer the key to a particular effect, but their comprehension is necessary and of utmost importance, in order to render the prayers effective, or rather, to start activating the Energy of The Word and Its Blessings. Surely, it is only through Al-FurQan / the Discernment, confirmation of Science of our time, that one can reach the necessary “Knowledge of Certainty” (102:5) for Activating the Word for oneself!
102:5 “Nay, unless you have the ‘knowledge of certainty’.”
Moreover, to achieve the “Knowledge of Certainty” for anything, can only be through the materialization and realization of it, and so it is for The Word / the Qur’an. Put in other words, one should see things with one’s own eyes, to achieve such Certainty (2:260) or else the mind will not reach the confidence and faith required for its fulfillment. The fulfillment of the Word (the verses and prayers of the Qur’an) also happens when the words produce the necessary Energy; and the energy is only produced by: comprehension, realization, visualization, and repetitive use!
2:260 ” And when Abraham said: My Lord, Show me how You Give life to the dead. He Said: ‘ Do you not then believe?’ He said: Yes, but for my heart to be certain …”
Nothing is neglected or exceeded in the Qur’an (6:38) .
6:38 “There is not a creature on earth, nor a flyer flying by its wings, without being communities like you; not a thing Have We Neglected in the Book, then to their Lord they shall be gathered”.
Therefore, everything one needs (whether at the time of Prophet Muhammad, or today in our time) for surviving from the sins (pollution) of this world in our life time; and also reaching the happiness of hereafter, is inside the Qur’an, only! And those following the narrations and customs (of Prophet) instead, as their religion’s commandments, they are most certainly, deeply deviated from the Truth, staying in the dark concerning the Commandments of God The Creator! (23:63)
23:63 “But, their hearts are so inundated from this (Qur’an) ; and as for their deeds, they are doing from other (commandments) than this (Qur’an) !
Unfortunately, for at least the last twelve centuries, people have abandoned the Qur’an; and by following such books as “Narration and Tradition of Prophet”, as the source of their religion, instead of the Commandments of God in the Qur’an Itself, they have undoubtedly extinguished the Qur’an in terms of productivity of Energy (25:30) .
25:30 “And the Messenger said: O my Lord, in fact my people adopted this Qur’an, abandoned”
(Adopting the Qur’an, in abandoning Its contents.)
This in no way is a coincidence that such a verse should be precisely in Chapter (25) : “Al-FurQan/الفرقان”, that is the Second Opening of the Qur’an today.
So unless the Qur’an is clarified, well understood and fully obeyed, it is just an unused power, switched off from producing Its Energy. Thus, let us get on with the process of discerning, in order that, All’h Willing, the readers will become acquainted with the clarification of The Word, through our contemporary Science; in other words, being acquainted with the confirmation of Science for the verses of the Qur’an.
- “Qur’an/ قران” (without definite article) ;
- “Al (the) Qur’an /القران”; ( with definite article) and
- the style and contents of The Qur’an’s Revelation
The word “qur’an / قران ” means:
Collection/ book to be memorized / a reading or study to keep in mind;and “Al-Qur’an / ال -قران”: the specifying prefix “al / the”, specifies the Collection to The Creator. In the translations of the Qur’an, unfortunately, this difference either has been neglected, or not considered as important hitherto. Or the slightest change in the Qur’an, has a meaning, and it is for a reason of a difference! The best example being the verse below, see to what extent a minor change can differ the real meaning of the verse (17:78) .
This being precisely the role of The Discernment / الفرقان today, distinguishing the clarification of Science, to perceive thoroughly the meaning of the Qur’an for our own time!
17:78 “Establish the ‘Connection/Salat‘ for sun-down up to the darkness of the night; and the dawn’ qur’an (study) ; for in fact the dawn study is witnessed (registered into mind and memory) .”
The word “qur’an” in this verse lacks the prefix (al/the) , which is the clue of the verse that hitherto has been translated as: “… and read ‘The Qur’an’ at dawn; for reading the Qur’an at dawn is witnessed (by angels, birds, etc .) “
The word simply “qur’an”, mentioned in verse above, and some other verses throughout the Qur’an, means, any book of study or any collection to be memorized, such as academic books, files or poetry etc. So the seemingly minor difference, consisting of the absence of (al/ ال) prefix, not only signifies, “any kind of study in general” (instead of only the Qur’an) ; but indicates an awareness of what modern Science has concluded concerning “early morning study”. The mind and memory having rested at night, are apt to be better at registration and memorization at dawn.
So any kind of study or reading to be kept in mind, is better done at dawn, because dawn’s study is better memorized / witnessed by the mind!
The verse, in fact, is giving a piece of scientific information, which only now after 14 centuries, is clarified and distinguished by contemporary science. Thus, there is no obligatory Commandment to read THE Qur’an at every dawn; but a Guidance on “dawn study” in general, whether it be the Qur’an or any other important study to keep in mind.
As mentioned in (6:38 above ) ; NEVER OVERLOOK THE SMALLEST DETAIL IN THE QUR’AN; BECAUSE NOTHING IS NEGLECTED, or IS WITHOUT REASON
The style of Revelation of the Qur’an The Glorious Qur’an, was Revealed by the “Intensive Forces”, that is: الله (Ch.53:5) :
53:5 “He was Taught (the Revelation) by The Intensive Forces”
Before this, they interpreted and believed by people that “The Intensive Forces ” were the angel Gabriel. But “The Intensive Forces ” is Only “All’h”, the Forces of Creation, The God Almighty, and none other! (Ref. to v. below 53:10.)
And the Revelation took place on a single occasion (Ch.53:10) , recording the entire contents of the Qur’an on Prophet Muhammad’s memory tape.
53:10 “So He Revealed to His servant as much as He (Meant) to Reveal.”
Here is the confirmation that The Intensive Forces are not angel Gabriel! Prophet Muhammad was not a “servant” of angel Gabriel! Angel Gabriel reminded the Revelation to Prophet Muhammad on earth.
This Revelation was composed of “three different revelations in one”, under the Seal of Time; in other words, “a composition of three revelations, registered on the tape, programmed to be released in three separate times”:
- The first Seal: Opened the entire Revelation, and Complete words of the Qur’an, in terms of Justness and Exactitude. This Revelation was released gradually through Prophet Muhammad, during 23 years in his lifetime.
- Then after 1400 years, the second and third Seals were released: The release of The “Mathematical Coding” Miracle, as the Proof / Evidence for the authenticity of the Qur’an
- And then the FurQan / Discernment was to be released, enabling the distinction of the Qur’an for all believers and intellectuals, through scientific interpretation, and conformity to their own era and time!
The example for this manner of proceeding has already been materialized and brought by science of our Time. It is like pre-programmed recordings on a videotape, each piece to be unlocked at a particular time, running their contents. Thus, thanks to Almighty Lord, due to such concretization through science, the fact of the style of Revelation becomes: “knowledge of certainty” for us (102:5 mentioned above) .So the Revelation of “the just/right of The Word”, that consisted of the entire words of the Book, containing a bifurcated/dual revelations (2:185) , was recorded all on the Qur’an’s tape; each revelation being programmed to release at a specific era and period of time.
2:185 “The month of Ramadan is in which the Qur’an was Sent down as: (1) a Guidance for the people; and, (2) an Evidence of Guidance; and, (3) the Discernment/ الفرقان;so any of you who witness the month, should be fasting …”
Such is how The Lord of universes’ people, Recorded the entirety of “The Word” (the Glorious Qur’an) onto Muhammad’s mind, Programming It to be released over 23 years, in order that the just of “The Word” be registered on the pages of the Book.
So, when events relating to each verse were to happen, under the supervision of one of the most powerful angels, Gabriel (Ch 2:97) , the necessary amount of The Word’s Revelation would be released from Muhammad’s mind, supervised by Angel Gabriel, so that the right words would thus fit into the pages of the Book, without mistake or omission.
2:97 “Say: Whoever is an enemy to Gabriel, for in fact he has descended It on to your heart by All’h’s Will, confirming what had come before It, and Guidance and Glad Tidings for the (definitive) Believers. “
The release of the 2nd revelation, that is: The Evidence [al-bayyena/ البینه], consisting of a mathematical coding of The Word, was Planned and Set to run 1400 years later. At a time that the computer would be discovered on Earth (27:82) , allowing people of the 15th century to calculate the total words and letters of The Book, and find out about Its immense superhuman coding Miracle; hence the Evidence of the authenticity and preservation of the Qur’an through the past 14 centuries.
27:82 “By the time of the fulfillment of The Word upon them, We Bring out for them a creature from the earth that speaks to them; for in fact people were not assured about Our Verses.”
The revelation of the Evidence has not been through the apparition of angel Gabriel (as for Prophet Muhammad) . As the entire Word was previously Revealed to Muhammad, this revelation was hidden into the depth of the Word. And the Messenger (Dr. Rashad Khalifa) , had seen it:
81:23 “… he saw (the revelation) by the ‘horizon of the Manifest’ [al-Ufuq al-Mubin/ الافق المبین]”.
Symbolically, the line of the Horizon is = “A profound line relating the heaven to earth”; And, “al-Mubin/the Manifest”= The Qur’an. 16:35- 24:54, 26:2- etc.:
16:35 “And the idol worshipers said: Had All’h Willed, we would not have worshiped aught but Him, neither we nor our fathers, nor should we have declared any prohibitions other than His! So did their predecessors. Then is there upon the Messengers but conveying the Manifest?”
As to the discernment of such a profound and awesome phrase: “… he saw (the revelation) by the horizon of the Manifest.” The mystery is hidden in the definition of “horizon”; that apart from pointing out “a profound and unlimited vast field” (as the field of the Qur’an) is as follows:
- “A far away ‘line’ relating the heaven and the earth” ( an exact definition for God’s line of Scripture, relating to people on earth)
- “A symbol of an open and distant perspective / (a re-opening after 1400 years.) a “future definition” in the lines of the Book; (defining of the words through science)
- and last but not the least, the “horizon” is where the resurrection of the sun takes place; and as the Qur’an is the “Intellectual’ Sun” of the earth and the light for intellect, this indicates the resurrection of All’h’s Word, after setting, at least 1200 years.
After the Evidence, the seal of the revelation for the Discernment is broken, bringing the explanation and definition of our contemporary Science for the Word of the Creator, (25:33) as explained before.
25:33 “And no question do they bring to you but, We Came on to you by the Truth (the Just, the Qur’an) , and a better interpretation!”
This revelation also has been seen by the horizon of the Manifest! Hopefully, the above explanations have been clear enough for honorable readers to distinguish the particularity of the Qur’an’s Revelation, Its contents and the way that has been Released.
So, (once more) and as a conclusion, the key to this mystery has been through the video comparison. The fact of materialization of the possibility of programming Its Glorious Revelation for three different periods, and each revelation being released at a particular time, provides us with the “knowledge of certainty” (102:5, “Nay, unless you have the knowledge of certainty.”)
This is an example of how the Time and its Science are the only way for us to reach the “knowledge of certainty”; and thus they are, incontestably, our principal Teachers today, through which we relearn The Word/The Commandments of God. And their teachings, interpretations, are comprehended through the Discernment / FurQan.
Therefore, unless we get the key code through the FurQan, we will not know the way to open the lock of the hidden Knowledge of the Qur’an, and will not have a part of the Festivity of this 2nd Opening / Inauguration (Ch: الفتح 48:1)
“In fact We Have Inaugurated /Opened for you, a Manifest Inauguration”
Undoubtedly, the Discernment is the ticket to Qur’an’s Festivity. And those among people of the world who neglect or ignore it, then on the Day of Inauguration / یوم الفتح”, it will be too late for them! On that Day, they will not get a favor, and have lost the opportunity for participation. (32:28-29)
32:28 “And they say: when will this Inauguration be, if you are truthful?”
32:29 “Say: on “Day of Inauguration” the belief of those who had rejected, will no more be of use to them, and they will not be Favored a respite.
