Zikrun – (Remembrance), Zikr means “to remember” and such matters and sayings of guidance; which are written at any place, and by reading of which, old matters can be recollected. Here it aims Holy Qur’aan, Which reminds all such good matters which have been taught to ancient people.


It is commanded in this verse: Last Ring of the same Chain is Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), to whom We gave the last Scripture i.e. Holy Qur’aan and sent in the world, so that – the work of mankind’s guidance, which was started by means of Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them), that should be completed and authenticated.


“Now, O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! You should cause to know this last Book (Holy Qur’aan) to the people clearly, which has been sent for their guidance until the Hereafter, and in which the summary of the entire Religious Laws of God Almighty have been mentioned, so that they may be able to solve their all difficult problems in its Light”.


From this verse, we knew two matters:


  1. Those all good things have been included in Holy Qur’aan, which did exist in the Scriptures of ancient Messengers (peace be upon them). Wise people of every place during all times can infer the solution of their entire difficulties by searching from this Book and reflecting.


  1. Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has manifested also by His words and acts; that way of guidance, by which it has become easy to solve our problems. Therefore, Hadith {Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)}, words of the Religious Directors and Righteous Ancestors are Flambeau of the Way for us, without which we cannot do our work.
