Abstract

precis:

This essay sets out to analyze the concept of difference in the Qur'ān from a philosophical point of view. Generally speaking, this means that people of various cultures can coexist in harmony in one society through mutual relations of tolerance. The essay also aims to determine the reciprocal interaction of benefits and values among societies through human and moral interactive relations. This divine address has been revealed in order to legalize the principle of difference that exists among human beings, making it a supported divine right and a natural law that one cannot deny or object to but can deal with and benefit from. Against this quality of difference and cosmic dissimilarity, God reserved for Godself the quality of Oneness and denied it to living creatures and inanimate objects. The reader of the qur'ānic verses realizes clearly that the attempt of some people to impose God's Oneness upon the life of others and to force them to conform and be similar by compelling them to assume the same image is only aggression against the Oneness and unity of God, which clashes with the original spontaneity that characterizes the entity of human beings.

Abstract:

This essay sets out to analyze the concept of difference in the Qur'ān from a philosophical point of view. Generally speaking, this means that people of various cultures can co-exist in harmony in one society through mutual relations of tolerance. The essay also aims to determine the reciprocal interaction of benefits and values among societies through human and moral interactive relations. This divine address has been revealed in order to legalize the principle of difference that exists among human beings, making it a supported divine right and a natural law that one cannot deny or object to, but can rather deal with and benefit from. Against this quality of difference and cosmic dissimilarity, God reserved for Godself the quality of Oneness and denied it to living creatures and inanimate objects. The reader of the qur'anic verses realizes clearly that the attempt of some people to impose God's Oneness upon the life of others, and to force them to conform and be similar by compelling them to assume the same image is only aggression against the Oneness and unity of God, which clashes with the original spontaneity that characterizes the entity of human beings.
