The Sahaba (radi allahu anhoom) for many years did not have the completed Qur’an, and even once the revelation had stopped, there were few who had memorized the Qur’an in it’s entirety. The Sahaba did not have volumes of ahadith, and many of them had only heard a small amount of them (out of the tens of thousands of sayings of Rasulallah salawat allahi wa salaamu alay).
However, from the relatively limited knowledge they had, they were enable to enact an enormous amount of social, economic, and spiritual progress.
But we have the finished product of the Qur’an and volumes upon volumes of books about the Sunnah of Rasulallah. We have books of tafsir, aqeedah, fiqh from the great scholars of Islam. And yet instead of taking the knowledge we have and applying to our lives and our communities, we engage in debates that have already been settled. We are fighting a battle that’s already ended. The Qur’an and Sunnah are complete. No new revelation will come; no messenger will be sent.
All it took was one verse from the Qur’an or one saying from Rasulallah to motivate the Sahaba to give their lives for the advancement of this Ummah. What more will it take to motivate us to at least apply Islam to our own lives?
for me to remember, for you to ponder
