The Quran is Allah’s protection towards mankind
Allah is Al-Hafiz, The Protector of everything. It is said in the Quran by Allah, “Lo! My Lord is Protector over all things.” [Sūrah al-Hūd: 57]. When Allah Himself says that he is the protector over all things and He alone can save us from anything bad, that means that it is HIS power ONLY to protect us and save us.
When Allah says that He is the protector of mankind, what does that mean? What is Allah protecting us from? The answer is Hell-Fire. Allah has made mankind and asked them to follow the straight path of following all the principles of Islam which include Believing in Allah and the Prophet, Salah, Roza, Haj and Zakat. When we follow these principles of Islam we are automatically protected from the hell fire. And where is the information about the principles of Islam found? It is found in the Quran.
So Allah subhanwatallah, in His extreme mercy for mankind, that mankind that He created, has given us the book Quran so that it can protect us. He has worded his commandments in the Quran and sent them down through the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) because He wants us to follow them and attain Jannah.
Allah understands that this worldly life may distract us,that is why He has ordered us to pray to Him 5 times a day and has said so in the Quran. Salah is mentioned abundant times in the Quran! Allah wants us to understand the poverty of the people who have no food which in turn makes us humble and a good human being THAT is why He has mentioned in the Quran to let the Muslims fast (ramazan). Again, Allah is protecting us! This goes on and on and we can see the same example for all the principles of Islam
Hence the entire word of Allah presented to us in the form of the Quran is protecting us. When we follow its commandments we are protected, when we read it we are protected, when we hear it we are protected and when we learn it we are protected. It is a complete circle where this one book, these verses of the word of Allah is actually becoming our savior!
Allah says in the Quran: Say, “Never will we be struck except by what Allah has decreed for us; He is our protector.” And upon Allah let the believers rely.” Quran: Surat At-Tawbah [9:51]
So let’s read and understand the Quran and let it be our protector from the Hell fire. Ameen.
