The Nashrani woman cried to hear the Qur'an's Sayyid Qutb

At the end of 1948, Sayyid Qutb(rahimahullah)left Alexandria, Egypt, to America via the Fire Ship by crossing the Mediterranean and crossing the Atlantic Ocean. On the fire boat there were many events that left an impression on his heart. Even the memories of the journey to America were much poured out when he wrote the Commentary on Fii Dzhilalil Qur'an. One of his stories when he saw a Christian missionary trying to Christianize Muslims who were riding the ship. The incident took place right when the time rolled to Friday Prayers.
Sayyid Qutb saw the missionary as a general pastor who offered a very chaotic teaching of Christianity. Suddenly, this aroused a sense and enthusiasm for his faith to maintain the faith of a Muslim brother. Not needing to wait a long time, he immediately contacted the captain of the ship to ask permission to set up the Friday Prayer on the boat. All Muslims, along with the crew, then went to the Friday Prayer call initiated by Sayyid Qutb. He then acted as a sermon and investigated who would have thought Sayyid Qutb was making a major change in the ship.
Apparently, the Friday prayer he led was the first Friday prayer to be erected on the ship. Regarding this matter, Sayyid Qutb had written it in the Fii Dzihilalil Qur'anic Interpretation when discussing the Letter of Jonah.
"The ship's ruler (an Englishman) has given us the ease to perform the prayers, and he has given the crews, the cooks and his servants who are all Muslims to perform the Friday prayer with us as long as there is no duty at that time They are very happy, because this is the first time the Friday prayer is held on the ship. "
Sayyid bersama pilgrims then become meals for foreign passengers. The Sayyid Prayer Movement and the Muslims felt alien to them but harbored the gentleness of worship that was so serene. Until just after the Friday prayer, many of the foreigners came to Sayyid and the congregation while congratulating and succeeding the Friday service that had just been held. Sayyid Qutb also wrote those memories in the Book of the Holy Qur'an,
"I acted as the Khatib and the imam of the Friday prayer. The passengers who were mostly foreigners were sitting in groups watching us pray. After praying many of them, who came to us to congratulate us on our success in carrying out our duties. holy. And this is the culmination of their knowledge of our prayers. "
One of the people who went to the Sayyid Quthb congregation was a Yugoslavian Nashrani woman who escaped from the pressure and communist threat of Teito. The woman admits her amazement over the validity and order of the Friday Prayers that the Muslims set up. Her tears did not fall out of her mind as to how the values ​​of the rabbis shouted Sayyid Quthb were able to touch her feelings.
With a sense of wonder, he wondered what kind of music he had just read Sayyid Quthb. It's never been like in life that he hears the Syahdu thread that is so deep into the heart. The rhythm is soft and the language is full of peace of mind. So this kind of reading is very strange in his religion. And so when the nashrani woman was surprised to learn that the language spoken by Sayyid Quthb in Friday's Prayer was the verses of Al Quranul Karim, a noble holy book for Muslims.
This is what makes Sayyid Qutb increasingly understand how the editorial power of the Qur'anic verses is so fascinating. Not only for Muslims, but also for non-Muslims. Because the amazement came out of the mouth of a woman who had never heard one letter in the Qur'an, let alone understand it. Regarding the incident, Sayyid Qutb wrote in the Book of Fii Dzhilalil Qur'an,
"The occurrence of these events and other similar events, which many people experienced shows that in the Qur'an there are other secrets captured by some human hearts, only he hears the Qur'an read. It may be women's faith to his religion and his escape from the communist country has made his feelings so sensitive to the sentences of God in such an amazing way. "
So Sayyid Qutb, felt the need to discuss the hidden and marvelous power of the Qur'an. According to Sayyid Qutb, the delivery of the Qur'an has a privilege because it has a broader designation, its expression is softer, more beautiful and more alive. In addition, the Qur'an also has an explanation method that is beyond the capabilities of human reach. Like how the Qur'an presents its method in several verses in the letter of Jonah.
"and We allow the Children of Israel to cross the sea, then they are followed by Pharaoh and his army, because they want to Persecute and oppress (them); until if the Pharaoh has almost drowned, he said:" I believe that there is no God but God which is believed by the Children of Israel, and I am including those who surrender (to Allah). "(Surat Yunus, 90)
According to Sayyid Qutb, until this story is told, Allah then commented directly, with the word directed to the landscape faced now,
"Do you now believe that you were disobedient in the past, and you are the ones who do mischief, but today We save your body that you may be mindful to those who came after you, and most of them people are neglected from our signs of power. " (Surat Yunus 91-92)
Then followed by revealing the views that continue to occur today, (even in later periods),
"And verily We have placed the Children of Israel in a good dwelling place, and We have provided them with good things, and they differed not except after their knowledge had come unto them: surely your Lord will judge between them the Day of Judgment about what they differed. " (Surat Yunus 93)
So it is true Sayyid Qutb said that the editorial of the Qur'an is very different from the editor of human creation. The editors or the composition of the Qur'an have great strength towards the soul, where the editor of human creation can never have it. By just reading it, sometimes it can have a great influence on people who don't know anything about Arabic. Yes, including the Yugoslav woman, who cried hearing the Qur'an.
