Is it banned to question in Quran?

questionshutterstock_119875249editAccor ding to the claims of the atheists, It is revealed in Quran Surat Maide not to ask any question or investigate about anything but in orher verses it is revealed THINK . Does Quran bans to question and say Think at the same time ? Is this a contradiction? Now lets check this subject within the Quran with details and examine Surat Al Maide 101: Surat Al Maide 101 . O ye who believe! Ask not questions about things which, if made plain to you, may cause you trouble. But if ye ask about things when the Qur’an is being revealed, they will be made plain to you, Allah will forgive those: for Allah is Oft- forgiving, Most Forbearing. First of all, a Muslim should know that all the good and evil standards can be set by only Allah as a necessity of faith. Muslims learn all the rules of Allah through the Messenger from Quran. The Messenger has no authority to set judgments instead of Allah. He himself has to obey all the orders and forbidden things like all other Muslims. Either Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) or all the other messengers has replied to all questions asked with revelations. Now, Could it be possible that Prophet Muhammed had answered any question not through the revelation but with his own words and logic other than Quranic revelation? Of course not. As all the provisions are set by ALLAH , that’s why Prophet Muhammed waited for revelations from ALLAH before answering any questions about a provision. This is where the 51st verse of Surat al Maide interferes ; in this evrse Allah indicated to Prophet Muhammed that He has answer all the questions through Quran as the subject Allah revealed is an order to follow . Just to contrary to claimed , It is not mentioned “ not to question “ ; “ tesu’kum : which will make you sorry” , meaning don’t ask question that will bring new religious responsibilities. All the forbidden thisngs and orders are enough for mankind ,Allah says : (Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. 2:185) The mentality perceiving the verse not to question any verse is far from decency and logic. Because , people BECOME NEVER SORRY for questioning , thinking and finding answer; JUST TO CONTRARY , they feel happy and feel joy of QUESTIONING because of INTELLIGENCE AND THINKING ABILITY. What makes people sorry is when they are restricted by any bans. As our Lord knows better the man He created , that’s why He indicated that HE FORGAVE EVERYTHING which are not mentioned in Quran. QURAN FAVORS THE INTELLIGENCE : Now lets look at the verses showing How much Quran values thinking and questioning : In Quran , it is indicated how the people of Hell will regret and how Allah will answer them . People of the hell will say like this as said in Surat Orignator verse 37: “35/37 . Therein will they cry aloud (for assistance): “Our Lord! Bring us out: we shall work righteousness, not the (deeds) we used to do!”” Again as per the same Surah ; Allah will answer : “Did We not give you long enough life so that he that would should receive admonition? “…Have ye no use of your mind ? ( Family of Imran, 65) Will ye not then understand? (Enam i | 32) …. [Please check …. Heights | 169, Jonah | 16, Hud | 51, Joseph | 109, The Prophets | 10, Prophets | 67, The believers | 80, The story | 60, Saffat | 137, Yasin | 68, Cattle | 32, Iron |17] Thus do we explain the Signs in detail to a people that uses their mind. (Romans, 28) Sovereignty, 10 . They will further say: “Had we but listened or USED OUR INTELLIGENCE, we should not (now) be among the Companions of the Blazing Fire!” Jonah 100 . No soul can believe, except by the will of Allah, and He will place doubt (or obscurity) on those who DO NOT USE THEIR MINDS. Quran which is calling for thinking also invites for questioning .When we evaluate the Quran as whole we come to such a conclusion: Some people say “questioning is sin” kind of things. These claims are not true. Generally , it is impossible to say questioning is wrong as per Quran. When we check Quran we see many verses encouraging questioning. What does Quran ask to question? Here is some samples: * Quran asks us to question the creation of the Universe (Al Anbiya , 30) * Quran asks us to question the creation of man ( Kiyamet,37) * Quran asks us to question the religion of our ancestors (The Cow, 170) * For a book to have revealed from Allah , what should be its qualifications? Quran asks us to question itself (Women, 82) * Quran asks us to question the Prophet (Jonah, 38) * If a religion is true, why it should be monotheist? ( The Prophets,22) For example, when we check the story of Prophet Abraham , we read that the whole story is a questioning process. For instance; Prophet Abraham recognizes the sun sets and says the sun can not be his lord. Allah dose not explain these for us to understand that we can reach to reality only by questioning. The Cow 23 . And if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our servant, then produce a Sura like thereunto; and call your witnesses or helpers (If there are any) besides Allah, if your (doubts) are true. If a better book would be able to be written , then Quran would not be From Allah . This challenge makes Quran a book testable. To summarize, as per Quran questioning is not wrong or forbidden. Quran is not accepting an imitating faith but accepts, just the contrary, a faith that rely on a conscious behavior and mind. You wont be having the real without questioning
