The Quran is established to be the primary source of our religion. Revealed to mankind through The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and introduced to us as God’s Speech, we calibrate ourselves by the standards of The Quran. Understanding God’s revelation has never been as straightforward as some might make it out to be, and that is precisely because contexts are required to be discovered and studied, before conclusions can be crystallized. The study of The Quran is not like the study of any other literature, because the owner of those words is not any mere creation of God, but rather, it is God Himself.
Understanding the unique nature of The Quran, one might garner interest to enquire concerning The Quran’s perspective on reason. As seekers of truth and methodical thinkers, we would have internalized the realization that the human development of thought is not as robust and reliable as we may perceive. We are in a constant state of thinking and re-evaluating our prior conclusions, through acquiring knowledge, in an attempt to seek clarity and ultimately, to reach the truth. When God Himself speaks to us, we understand that our ability to reason can transcend new heights, but that is only if we are docile enough to learn from God.
The question of reason and revelation has oftentimes been misrepresented as a stark dichotomy. God, however, informs us, through His Revelation, that reason is a necessary tool for us to reach the truth that The Quran presents. The Quran is divine revelation, with reason.
