We will deal with the dividers [15:90]

[Quran 7:52] We have given them a scripture that is fully detailed, with knowledge, guidance, and mercy for the people who believe.

[Quran 29:43] We cite these examples for the people, and none appreciate them except the knowledgeable.

Knowledge of Quran is one of the guards God gave us against Satan. When we’re well-educated and truly knowledgeable of God’s detailed teachings and commands in Quran, we’re less likely to fall into Satan’s traps. Ignorance, on the other hand, is the real disability of the strayers. It renders them as easy targets for Satan. Ignorance is a common trait among Satan’s followers.

[Quran 29:49] In fact, these revelations are clear in the chests of those who possess knowledge. Only the wicked will disregard our revelations.

[Quran 35:28] Also, the people, the animals, and the livestock come in various colors. This is why the people who truly reverence God are those who are knowledgeable. God is Almighty, Forgiving.

Among the characteristics of Quran is that sometimes the details regarding specific matters are listed in different verses of different chapters. It’s our duty when we study or deal with these matters to examine them in the light of the WHOLE context of Quran.

This would be the appropriate approach to conclude the right teachings and grasp the correct understandings. Neglecting any related verses result in gathering insufficient facts about such issues which will lead to reaching wrong and even contradictory conclusions. We should always remember that there are no contradictions in the words of God and that all of God’s systems are unchangeable and are divinely designed and set in a perfect harmony with each other.

God has specifically invited us to practice caution when we study Quran and has assured us that all the details are contained in it. We only have to do our homework and examine His words carefully and entirely:

[Quran 4:82] Why do they not study the Quran carefully? If it were from other than God, they would have found in it numerous contradictions.

[Quran 5:101] O you who believe, do not ask about matters which, if revealed to you prematurely, would hurt you. If you ask about them in light of the Quran, they will become obvious to you. God has deliberately overlooked them. God is Forgiver, Clement.

[Quran 73:4] … read the Quran from cover to cover.

Some people intentionally seek divisions, confusion and contradictory stands through this Satanic game:

the partial obedience to God and selective application of Quran. God has sufficiently warned us against this practice and against these hypocrites:

[Quran 15:90-3] We will deal with the dividers. They accept the Quran only partially. By your Lord, we will question them all, about everything they have done.

[Quran 3:23] Have you noted those who were given part of the scripture, and how they are invited to uphold this scripture of God, and apply it to their own lives, then some of them turn away in aversion?

[Quran 13:36] Those who received the scripture rejoice in what was revealed to you; some others may reject parts of it. Say, “I am simply enjoined to worship God, and never associate any idols with Him. I invite to Him, and to Him is my ultimate destiny.”

[Quran 42:10] If you dispute any part of this message, the judgment for doing this rests with God. Such is God my Lord. In Him I trust, and to Him I submit.

Believers in God alone and followers of Quran alone are expected to be united, speaking one language—the language of guidance—and acting according to the Quran. We cannot make Quran-based decisions if we are not fully knowledgeable of all
