His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar and Chairman of the Muslim Council of Elders, visited the Darul Quran JAKIM Institution in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He noted that this occasion represents an excellent opportunity to discuss the Quran, the Book of Allah that falsehood cannot approach from before it or behind it. The Quran is timeless and transcends space, reaching far beyond the intellect and historical events. It is no wonder, as it is the book that Allah Himself revealed and promised to protect: "Indeed, it is We who sent down the message, and indeed, We will be its guardian" (Quran 15:9).

During his speech at the event held by Darul Quran JAKIM to mark his visit, His Eminence emphasized that Allah has fulfilled His promise, providing the Quran with unprecedented means of preservation both in hearts and in written form. Nearly fifteen centuries have passed since the Quran's revelation, with countless adversaries seeking to find faults and errors. Yet, none have succeeded in identifying a single flaw that defies reason, natural instinct, or established scientific facts.

His Eminence pointed out that the first verses of the Quran were expected to awaken the natural inclination towards faith in Allah. However, the Quran began its message by sounding the bells of knowledge and awareness in people's minds, highlighting that faith in Islam is founded on "knowledge" and rational thinking, not merely on "emotional acceptance" without evidence and clear reasoning.

The Grand Imam highlighted that reason is the cornerstone upon which all religious duties revolve, defined as "God's address concerning the actions of the accountable individuals, whether of demand or choice." The status of reason in the Quran is an undeniable fact, evident from the verses that prove it, distinguishing the Quran from other scriptures. The Quran liberates human consciousness, heart, and conscience from worshipping stones, animals, and people, freeing the mind from superstitions and myths, and elevating the human soul above materialism and base desires.
