How Quran is nothing but loss after loss for the unjust!?

Have you ever read this Aya of Quran?

وَنُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْ‌آنِ مَا هُوَ شِفَاءٌ وَرَ‌حْمَةٌ لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۙ وَلَا يَزِيدُ الظَّالِمِينَ إِلَّا خَسَارً‌ا

Persian Translation:
و ما از قرآن آنچه را برای مؤمنان مایه درمان ورحمت است، نازل می کنیم وستمکاران را جز خسران نمی افزاید.

English Translation: And We send down in the Qur’an that which is a cure for the Muslims, and a mercy – and it increases only ruin for the unjust! (Al-Isra – 82)

It is one of the most important Miracles of Quran!

Have you ever seen a Text which is Mercy for someone and at the same time it is Ruin for someone else?

Its mystery is in how people look at it. Unjust People normally have spiteful view! so they look for the Verses which they can deny the accuracy of Quran and as you know: “We see what we really want to see!” When they face to beautiful and moral verses like the following verses they have to close their eyes:


(9-12 Al-Hujuraat)

إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
The Believers are but a single Brotherhood: So make peace and reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers; and fear Allah, that ye may receive Mercy.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا يَسْخَرْ قَوْمٌ مِّن قَوْمٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُونُوا خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ وَلَا نِسَاءٌ مِّن نِّسَاءٍ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُنَّ خَيْرًا مِّنْهُنَّ ۖ وَلَا تَلْمِزُوا أَنفُسَكُمْ وَلَا تَنَابَزُوا بِالْأَلْقَابِ ۖ بِئْسَ الِاسْمُ الْفُسُوقُ بَعْدَ الْإِيمَانِ ۚ وَمَن لَّمْ يَتُبْ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ
O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others: It may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let some women laugh at others: It may be that the (latter are better than the (former): Nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming is a name connoting wickedness, (to be used of one) after he has believed: And those who do not desist are (indeed) doing wrong.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ ۖ وَلَا تَجَسَّسُوا وَلَا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم بَعْضًا ۚ أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَن يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ رَّحِيمٌ
O ye who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible): for suspicion in some cases is a sin: And spy not on each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, ye would abhor it…But fear Allah: For Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ
O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).


Quran is full of these verses but some people like that American priest,Terry Jones see some special verses which needs to be explained and because they do not search about it, they do not understand the main meaning of them and finally set fire to the Quran!
Do you know why?
Quran answers you:

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُ‌وا سَوَاءٌ عَلَيْهِمْ أَأَنذَرْ‌تَهُمْ أَمْ لَمْ تُنذِرْ‌هُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ ﴿٦﴾ خَتَمَ اللَّـهُ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَعَلَىٰ سَمْعِهِمْ ۖ وَعَلَىٰ أَبْصَارِ‌هِمْ غِشَاوَةٌ ۖ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ ٧

As for those who have rejected (these things), it is all the same to them whether you warn them or do not warn them: they are not going to believe. (6) Allah has sealed up their hearts and ears and a covering has fallen over their eyes, and they have incurred the severest punishment. (7)

But believers of Quran look at it carefully and without any spite!
They see the beauty of Quran. (even as a normal text not the message of GOD)

they try their best to discover fantastic things of Quran like this:

Object Oriented Programming in Quran!

If they see something strange they change their view and they find out that from that view, yes, Quran is correct and it is a mercy for them.

Anyway, reading and understanding Quran needs one thing and it is: a Clean Eye! (an eye without any spite) 😉

Object Oriented Programming in Quran!

If you are a student or a graduated of Computer Science, you may have or may have had a course called “Object Oriented Programming (OOP)” or “Advanced Programming”. If you’d like to describe what OOP is, what will you say? I personally use this example in my classes:
Assume that today our GOD wants to create a new human. Will He redefine the concept of all properties and operations of human? Will He frequently redefine the concept of, for example, “eye”, “ear”, “heart” and so forth? Will He redefine the concept of “Crying”, “Seeing”, “Walking”, etc?
Definitely if He did so, He would waste a lot of time, and according to our beliefs, negative adjectives like “Time Wasting” does not have any way to our GOD.
It seems that GOD has a template or model which all of these body parts and their functions have been defined in. This template is flexible like kids Play Dough so GOD can make changes He prefers while he is creating a new human. (For example He can make the eyes and ears smaller or larger, etc.)
When GOD wants to create a new human, there is no need to redefine the concepts of eyes or ears or the way they act…
The only thing He has to do is to choose some values like the color of eyes or the size of ears and put all of them (plus the Adam’s essence) in that template and the new human is ready!
OK, now in Object Oriented Programming we say:
Assume that a programmer is designing a program for a University. (University Management System). Will he define all properties and operations of each student separately and repeatedly? For example will he frequently define the concept of “First Name”, “Last Name”, “Father’s Name” and so forth? Will he say, “OK, “First Name” is string, its max-length is 50 characters, “Birth date” is DATE, its format is YYYY-MM-DD”, etc? Will he define the concept of “Add Student” and “Edit Student” for each student and in each part of the program separately?
Defiantly if he does so, he will waste a lot of time, but a good programmer does not waste the time!
It is better to create a Template and define all students’ properties and operations in it. This template should be flexible so that the programmer can change some parts while he is creating a new student. (For example in the previous example, GOD should be able to change the operation of eyes to create some blind or poor eyesight people, and now the programmer should be able to change some functions of “Add Student” for the students of different levels)
When the programmer wants to create a new student, there is no need to redefine the concept of “First Name”, “Last Name”, “Birth date” and “Add Student”, “Edit Student”, etc. The only thing he needs to do is to get some values for the properties (like “Hamid Reza” for “First Name” and “Niroomand” for “Last Name”, etc) and put all of them in the template and the new student is ready!
In OOP, that Template is called a CLASS. Those body parts like eyes and ears are called Property Names. Their values like “blue” or “big” are called Property Values. Their operations and functions are called Method and the flexibility of a class is called Overriding.
Anyway, I hope you have gotten the concept of Object Oriented Programming, otherwise you may need to review your OOP textbook :).
My aim in this post was to tell a story.
Every time that I say these concepts to my students in OOP classes, I wonder, “Does GOD really has a Class and Template for human?”
At our local mosque, people read a page of Quran every night. Two nights ago, when the reciter was reading the first Aya of Nesaa Sura, I became really surprised! My eyes were like thisShocked
Have a look at this Aya:
O mankind! Reverence your Guardian-Lord, who created you from one living entity
In English Translation نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ has been translated as “One living entity” or “Single Soul” or “One being” but now, we programmers know that GOD is speaking to us! He means “I’ve used Object Oriented Programming in creating humans!”
Yes, GOD is an Excellent Programmer! 🙂
Wish you success.
