Importance of the Koran Forming Contemporary Islamic Culture

0 Comment

The Koran provides knowledge that goes back to the time of Abraham, a figure from the Old Testament of the Holy Bible when God was conducting his work through previous prophetic figures. The basis of the Koran is to remind the Islamic society of the good works between God and Abraham and then attempt to apply these to modern society. It also describes the liberation of the Jews from Egyptian rule, when Moses led his people out of bondage and into a new land where they could establish their own rules and social identities. The Koran is widely accepted because it restores faith in the history between Allah and man and helps Islamic society to maintain their strong spiritual connection by remembering the origins of how God has helped to shape modern Islamic culture.
The main concept of the Koran is to act as a template for altering social behavior directly in relation to what Allah prefers and values. It teaches women to remain modest in their dress and behaviors, reinforcing traditional values on being a family caretaker and remaining devoted to providing a quality household. It tells women that in order to gain Allah’s favor, they must be efficient, sincere, and accept personal accountability for their failures in relation to meeting God’s values. The Koran has been widely accepted by women in the Islamic faith because it acts as a form of bridge between different traditional and progressive Islamic societies that shape the role of women in society. It essentially gives women a sense of purpose in society so that they can become closer to Allah.
Another reason this book is so widely accepted by Islamic followers is that it provides considerable mention about how to properly establish justice while satisfying God’s intentions for men in relation to law. Many Islamic societies have been facing oppression, wars, famine, or military conquest over many centuries, therefore Islamic followers have found their basic psychological needs unfulfilled.
