CHAPTER 1: The Qur'an and Revelation
REVELATION AND SCRIPTURE BEFORE THE QUR'ANGod's Communication with Man
God communicated with man. This is the key concept of revelation upon which all religious belief if more than a mere philosophical attempt to explain man's relationship with the great 'unknown', the 'wholly other' is founded. There is no religious belief, however remote it may be in time or concept from the clear teachings of Islam, which can do without or has attempted to do without God's communication with man.
