Qur’anic Imagery of Doomsday and
The crux of the message that the
Holy Qur’an conveys to mankind is that this worldly life is not an end in
itself. It is a prelude to the life in the Hereafter. Our ultimate fate depends
upon what we do in the present life. We therefore should not be reckless.
Instead, we ought to prepare for the world to come. This is the plain message
that has been put across by this divine book in so many beautiful and majestic
styles. This essay probes into these styles and spells out the technical methods
that the Qur’an has employed to effectively communicate its message.
The Directives of Fasting
Fasting in Ramadan is obligatory for the Muslims. It
is essential that its directives and injunctions be grasped, and also one should
have a clear perception of the objective of fasting. In this article, Ghamidi
dwells in detail on these issues.
The Holy Qur’an has prescribed different preaching
responsibilities for Muslims in different capacities. Each Muslim is not
enjoined to propagate the truth of Islam in one predetermined form. For example,
Muslim scholars have different preaching duties from those of common Muslims.
This is what Mr Javed Ahmed Ghamidi maintains. In this essay, he describes these
duties very lucidly under separate headings.

the holy month of Ramadan.
