Boycotting the Qur’an

Reference: Al-Fawaaid

Boycotting of the Qur’an is a number of types:

First Type: To boycott listening to it, having faith in it and concentrating on it.

Second Type: To boycott acting upon it and restricting one’s self to the boundaries of that which is Permissible and that which is Impermissible – this could be despite having faith in it.

Third Type: To boycott applying its rulings and laws, and returning back to it in the principles of the religion as well as its finer branches. Also, to believe that the [information in the] Qur’aan does not equate to absolute certainty; believing that its written evidences do not equate to certainty in knowledge.

Fourth Type: To boycott contemplating and understanding it, and knowing the intent of the One who spoke with it.

Fifth Type: To boycott using it as a source of cure for all types of diseases of the heart and its poisons. So you seek cure for the ailments of the heart from other than the Qur’aan and yet boycott the cure of the Qur’aan.

All of these types of boycotting are included in the saying of Allaah,

{And the Messenger will say: “O my Lord! Verily, my people boycotted this Qur’aan.} [25:30] [1]

Some of these types of boycotting may be less serious that others.


[1] Shaykh As-Sa’adi said regarding this verse,
{And the Messenger will say} calling his Lord and complaining to Him about how his people have rejected what he came with; he will regretfully say,

{O my Lord! Verily, my people} to whom You sent me in order to guide them and preach to them {have boycotted this Qur’aan} i.e. they have rejected, boycotted and left it. This is despite the obligation upon them of submitting to its command and turning accepting its rules. [Tafseer As-Sa’adi, 25:30]

هجر القرآن أنواع

المرجع: الفوائد

هجر القرآن أنواع:

أحدها: هجر سماعه والايمان به والاصغاء اليه.

والثاني: هجر العمل به والوقوف عند حلاله وحرامه, وان قرأه وآمن به.

والثالث: هجر تحكيمه والتحاكم اليه في أصول الدين وفروعه واعتقاد أنه لا يفيد اليقين… وأن أدلته لفظية لا تحصّل العلم.

والرابع: هجر تدبّره وتفهّمه ومعرفة ما أراد المتكلم به منه.

والخامس: هجر الاستشفاء والتداوي في جميع أمراض القلوب وأدوائها, فيطلب شفاء دائه من غيره, ويهجر التداوي به.

وكل هذا داخل في قوله:

{وقال الرسول يا رب ان قومي اتخذوا هذا القرآن مهجورا} [25:30]

وان كان بعض الهجر أهون من بعض.


قال الشيخ السعدي: {وَقَالَ الرَّسُولُ} مناديا لربه وشاكيا له إعراض قومه عما جاء به، ومتأسفا على ذلك منهم {يَا رَبِّ إِنَّ قَوْمِي} الذي أرسلتني لهدايتهم وتبليغهم، اتَّخَذُوا هَذَا الْقُرْآنَ مَهْجُورًا} أي: قد أعرضوا عنه وهجروه وتركوه مع أن الواجب عليهم الانقياد لحكمه والإقبال على أحكامه… [تفسير السعدي]
