IslamAwakened has been asked to add commentary to our Today's Ayat
In lieu of today's comment please look at this Quora answer:
Is there any country in the world where people live according to the Quran?
Here’s how you would find out in a scientific manner, and cut through the rhetoric of people claiming their country is living according to the Qur’an.
List down Quranic principles and group them in broad elements like Economics, Legal & Governance, Human & Political Rights, and International Relations.
For example, in Human & Political Rights, the Qur’an says there is no compulsion in religion (2:256). If the law of a country allows freedom of (and from) religion, then the country lives according to the Quran.
It’s not difficult to ascertain these elements from the Quran. The difficult job comes next.
See the result here:
So, are we doing as we say?
This is an OPINION.
We must always read the verse(s) for ourselves!
