GOD NEVER FORGETS 64 – And your Lord never forgets. 19 Mary, 64
God, our Lord, is omniscient; it follows that He knows what we need to know about religion. Points left to our discretion are meant to be a man’s elbowroom. Are those people who deem it necessary to supplement the Book, with the intention of interpolating new details in the text, consider themselves wiser than God, and believe to accomplish what God has, according to them, left incomplete? For example, while God has not described the clothes to be worn by the woman stating that she is to cover herself from a given part of her body to another part, how dare they do so in the name of the Almighty? Why have they tried to interpolate their opinions in the practice of Islam? Their rationale may be a topic of discussion, but clothing the woman in a particular uniform is but casting aspersion upon God and His religion (See Chapters 17, 18).
51 – It is not sufficient for them that We have revealed the Book to you which is read out to them. 29 The Spider, 51
Alas, the Quran seems to be not good enough for the traditionalists. The Word of the Quran does not satisfy those who dare rewrite the Quranic text by interpolating thousands of hadiths and viewpoints of the sectarian chiefs in the practice of religion. They are not satisfied, because the Quran does not veil the woman as the traditionalists seem to imagine, because it does not prohibit arts and sculpture and does not decree uniforms with turbans, robes with full sleeves and long skirts nor recommend men to grow a beard, thus promoting the customs of the Arabs. This is why many people prefer to become members of the Hanafi, Shafi, and Shii sects rather than being the Muslim as put forth in the Quran. For these prohibitions, which do not exist in the Quran, are incorporated in the creeds of these sects. Instead of learning what the Quran says, these people prefer to figure out a religion in their minds and look for it in the Quran, and when they fail to find it in it, they say the items are missing. Eventually, the Quran proves not to be sufficient for certain miscreants and religionists.
