THE METHODOLOGY OF THE HOLY QUR’ĀN IN ORIGINATING THE DOCTRINE AND ITS ENCOUNTER WITH INNATE MIND
Being Muslims, we deal with Islamic Studies as separate academic subject which is teaching from primary level to university level i.e., up to higher education. Without doubts, Āqīdah is a basic chapter in Islamic Studies, but I would love to say that it’s not just a lesson in Islamic Studies but if we categorize Islamic Studies into main branches, it would be the first branch of Islamic Studies. Basically, we don’t need any source to testify Islamic doctrine, but to satisfy innate nature of human we need to discuss Islamic Creed and provide logical reasoning to make it understandable for human intellect. For this, the basic source of Islamic Āqīdah is the Holy Qur’ān. Qur’ān describes Islamic Doctrine with logical points. Qur’ānic Methodology to narrate the Islamic creed is logical, analytical and scientific. For example, Qur’ān claims that there is someone who created the world and that’s God, to make it sensible and understandable for curious nature of human, then Qur’ān gives some examples and provide some evidences like; there must be someone who make arise sun from the east and set it into west every day. Qur’ān categorized Islamic Doctrine into six forms as; Belief in Allah, on his angels, on his books, his messengers, day of resurrection and good or bad fortune, and these are also called article of faith and moreover to believe in all the other unseen elements. In this research article there would be an illustration that how Qur’ān gives logic and reasoning to understand the fact that the Islamic belief is a final and true belief to follow.
