When mankind entered its last phase on earth, the last and greatest Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was raised in the city of Makkah in Arabia. Through him the humanity was given the last testament between God and humans in the form of the Holy Qur’ān. Now it is the only book having perfect, pure and unadulterated divine guidance for the whole mankind, indulging all nations and races in succeeding ages. It contains permanent, limitless and basic guidance at every stage of human civilization.
The Qur’ān bases its teachings on three fundamental truths: 1) That the Almighty God is the Creator, Master, Nourisher, Protector and Lord of mankind. 2) That the worldly life is the first stage of the everlasting life in the never-ending Hereafter. 3) And that this worldly life is a period of test to determine who submits and surrenders to the Will of the Creator and who would be judged as successful and obedient slave of God and granted permanent bliss in the eternal, infinite and never-ending life in the Heaven under the benign shadow of the mercy of the Beneficent Lord.
The Qur’ān provides complete guidance to believers as to how to lead a life of piety and moral excellence. It gives the guidelines to become the slave of God and servant of fellow human beings. It presents a code of conduct which guides the moral, ethical, social, economic and political principles on the bases of which the individual and collective life of humanity has to be built. It has enjoined the Muslims to implement the divine guidance in the individual and collective life so that mankind may enjoy peace and progress in the world and success in the hereafter.
Radiance Viewsweekly is pleased to present this Special Issue to its readers and the general public on the occasion of the birthday of the Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which falls on 9th October this year.

We pray this issue may pave the way for a proper understanding of the message of the Qur’ān which may promote love and understanding in our large country and in the whole world which is suffering from strife, conflict and inhuman behaviour. May Allah save our nation and bless the entire mankind.
