Why Are the Disbelievers Mentioned a Lot in the Qur’an?

17 August, 2016
Q As-Salamu alaykum. Why are the disbelievers mentioned a lot in the Qur’an?


Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Dear questioner, we would like to thank you for the great confidence you place in us, and we implore Allah Almighty to help us serve His cause and render our work for His Sake.

In his response to the question, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a Senior Lecturer and Islamic Scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states

Kufr (disbelief) is the word used in the Qur’an for rejection of faith in God. Kuffar (disbelievers) are those who deny the existence of God and thus fail to recognize their existence as knowledge of God is innate to humans; it is as natural as a person’s instinct to eat while experiencing hunger and thirst.

The Qur’an is a manual of life for humanity. It calls them to come to their natural state of recognizing God and thus realizing their full potential as humans and thus find peace and tranquility.

It is not different from a loving father calling back his beloved children to him after they have walked away from him in rebellion. Therefore, all such references are signs of God’s infinite love for humans.

Allah Almighty knows best.
