3 Unit 4: Islam The Qur an: Instructions for life Islam is the second largest religion in the world with over one billion followers. The UK 2001 census recorded Muslims living in the UK, this is around 2.7 per cent of the population (office for National Statistics, 2001 figures; Muslim population). There are several different groups of Muslims, but all of them, in every country and community, regard their faith as a bond between them and as a major part of their identity. The Qur an is the holy book of Islam and has a great impact on the lives of the millions of Muslims across the world. It was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) over 1400 years ago in Makkah, Arabia. Because Islam began in an Arabic speaking country, the Qur an is written in the Arabic language. When Muslims talk about God they call him Allah, the Arabic name for God. Muslims believe that the Qur an contains Allah s words, as dictated to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by the Angel Jibril (Gabriel). For Muslims, the Qur an is a set of instructions and the supreme authority on how to live life. It guides Muslims in their worship of Allah as well as relationships between people and all aspects of life. Muslims believe that Islam has always existed, but for practical purposes, date their religion from the time of the migration of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to Madinah where he set up the first Muslim community. Muslims base their laws on the Qur an and the Sunnah, which is the practical example of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Pupils are asked to consider how guidance can help them in aspects of their life. This helps to set the scene for consideration of teachings and authority in Islam, considering what sacred books say about God, the world and life. Muslims show great respect for the Qur an. They do not handle it more than is necessary. Many Muslims prefer to see it placed very high and wrapped in cloth for storage. They would never place it on the floor or write in it. Many Muslims believe you should be very clean yourself when handling it. In order to avoid anxiety about handling the Qur an, a non-muslim is advised to always use a translation. Even though a translation is not the actual Qur an, it should still be treated with great respect because it still conveys the same meaning. Storage of Qur ans, including translated books, should always be respectful so it is suggested you do not leave these items on displays in classrooms or corridors. Wrap the books and store them in a safe, clean place. Some Muslims are also very worried about the disposal of photocopies of texts of the Qur an; the use of on-screen text will help you to avoid these concerns. The gift of the Qur an: Part one Muslims believe that, over time, many messengers, or prophets, and books were given by Allah to guide people on how to live and have the right relationship with Allah. People did not always listen to the messages or they forgot them. The long list of Allah s prophets in the Qur an begins with Prophet Adam and includes Prophets Nuh (Noah), Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses), Dawud (David) and Isa (Jesus). Muslims believe each prophet had a message, for the time in which he lived, to bring people back to Allah and that Muhammad (pbuh) was the final prophet with a message to last until the end of time. Muhammad (pbuh) lived in Makkah, a city that had a good supply of water and was the centre of many trade routes across the desert. Muslims believe that Makkah was also a special city to Allah as a special building there called the Ka bah (an Arabic word that means the cube ) was built there. It had been built as a place to worship Allah by Prophet Ibrahim and his son Prophet Ishmael, many centuries before the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). However, by the time that Muhammad (pbuh) was born, the use of the Ka bah had been changed by many Arab tribes who travelled through or set up businesses in the city and had become a place to worship their many tribal gods. Makkah was not a place based on an Islamic way of life and was full of sinners, dishonesty, slavery and cruelty. Muslims believe Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was chosen to be a special messenger, passing on Allah s words to all people because he was wise, honest and concerned about other people and society. Every year, during the month of Ramadan, Muhammad (pbuh) went to a cave outside the city, on Mount Hira, to think about the meaning of his life and what was happening in his community. The gift of the Qur an: Part two This page continues the story of the revelation of the Qur an. It explains that, during the month of Ramadan while Muhammad (pbuh) was spending time in thought and prayer in the cave, he was visited by the Angel Jibril who began to reveal Allah s words to him a great and final message that Allah wanted the prophet to take to his people. These first special words explain that Muslims believe Allah created the world and has helped human beings to develop since Creation. The first words emphasise Allah as creator of all and as humanity s teacher. 19

4 Read in the name of your Lord who created, created man from a clot. Read, for your Lord is most generous, Who teaches by means of the pen, teaches man what he does not know (sura 96, verses 1 5). Muslims call that night, when the Angel first visited Muhammad (pbuh), Laylat al-qadr (the night of power), because the power of Allah s message was being revealed to all people. Muhammad (pbuh) was not unusual in being unable to read at the time when he lived, although memorizing the Qur an was a huge task and a weighty responsibility. Today, in the west, little regard is given to an oral tradition, but before people were able to learn to write they had to memorise what they were told. Indeed, in some parts of the world today, those who hold the oral history of their people are held in great respect. Pupils might investigate the West African tradition of griots (travelling poets, musicians and storytellers), who are still held in great regard. The notepad pages encourage pupils to learn a short poem or set of instructions off by heart in order to appreciate the effort and concentration required. They will also be able to consider how distractions can hamper their efforts and how long they are able to hold information in their heads. The passing of Allah s message It took Muhammad (pbuh) 23 years to commit all of Allah s messages to his memory. Pupils might consider how this responsibility would make him concerned to ensure the message stayed accurate and was able to be transmitted to the people of Makkah. The Qur an contains over 6000 verses making 114 surahs, or sections, written in Arabic. Each surah is given a name. All the surahs except for one start with, In the name of Allah the most merciful and the most kind, the thought with which Muslims believe they should start everything they do. The arrangement of surahs in the Qur an does not correspond to the chronological order in which they were revealed by the Angel Jibril. In the clip, the names of some surahs are seen on the film scrolling upwards in Arabic and in English. Pause the clip in the appropriate places so that pupils can locate the names for surahs 22, 29, 40, 54, 71. The names of these are shown on notepad page two. It is explained to pupils on notepad page three that the narrator uses the words peace be upon him after the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Muslims often use this phrase in Arabic or in English after the names of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or the other Prophets of Allah. Muslims believe Adam, Abraham (Ibrahim) and Jesus (Isa) were all Prophets of Allah and so these words would be used after their names as a mark of respect to them all. Making Allah s words beautiful Qur anic or Islamic calligraphy is a special form of artistic writing using the Arabic script. Calligraphy became important in many Muslim societies because images of people and animals are not usually used by Muslims in decorative art as many Muslims believe those images should not be reproduced. The main difference between Christian and Islamic illuminations is the use of images of people and animals in Christian art. Calligraphy designs can be found on the outside and interiors of buildings in the Muslim world, particularly in mosques, on coins, on vases and pots, on jewellery and to produce beautiful books, especially the Qur an. For example, beautifully decorated Qur anic verses can be seen on the exterior walls of the Taj Mahal, a very famous Muslim building in Agra in India, where the words of the Qur an have been created from jasper inlaid into white marble panels. Reciting the Qur an It is extremely important to Muslims that the message of Allah in the Qur an is passed on without any changes. This is because they are the actual word of Allah and Muslims have the responsibility to keep the words as they were revealed to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Following the example of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), many Muslims around the world want to learn to recite the Qur an from memory and this film introduces pupils to a young Hafiz, who explains how the work of memorising the entire Qur an helps to keep the Qur an identical to the message Allah sent to the world. The maintenance of an oral tradition in Islam is therefore important to ensure that the words of the Qur an do not change. Muslims do not consider that translations of the Qur an into languages other than Arabic produces an identical text as they appreciate that the language change may change the original message, even by subtle nuances of meaning. This is why learning Arabic is an important part of a Muslim s development or growth within their faith. Pupils might compare the importance placed on keeping the words of a sacred book from changing in Islam with that of Judaism. What happens when books are translated? Do pupils think that opens up the text to a risk of changing? 20

5 Learning the Qur an This clip shows Abdul, a young Muslim living in Wales, and other young Muslims going to mosque school to learn to read the Qur an in Arabic. Abdul also wants to learn the Qur an by heart and to become a Hafiz. Many young Muslims around the world attend mosque school to learn Arabic, to learn the Qur an and to learn more about their faith. There may be members of the school who attend your local mosque - perhaps they would be happy to explain how their lessons are organised, show some of their books and read some Arabic to the class. Following the teaching in the Qur an For believers of all faiths, once you have learned the teaching of a faith, putting beliefs into practice in daily life at all ages is an important challenge. This clip shows three young London Muslims talking about how they put the Muslim teaching of Ibadah into practice. For them Ibadah means respect and is an important message of the Qur an that they try to follow in their lives. There are broader and more adult definitions of Ibadah all relating to obedience to Allah and carrying out his commands, being mindful of his teachings in all that you do. So worship can be Ibadah as can obedience to other commands of Allah. 21
