One of the major characteristics of the Qur’anic wisdom is that it is not the static or dry type. It is a kind of dynamic wisdom that provokes the mind and quickens the heart. In this wisdom there is stirring dynamism and there is moving force attested by historical evidence as well as by the Qur’an itself. When Muhammad first launched the Call of God, his only power was the Qur’an and his only wisdom was the Qur’anic wisdom. The penetrating dynamism of the Qur’an is tremendous and irresistible.
There are numerous examples to show that the most dynamic personalities and the most conclusive arguments could not reach the realm of the dynamic wisdom of the Qur’an. God speaks of the Qur’an as a Rooh or spirit and life, and as a light wherewith the servants of God are guided to the Straight Path (42:52). Again, He says: Had We sent down this Qur’an on a mountain, verily you would have seen it humble itself and cleave asunder for fear of God. Such are the similarities which We propound to men, that they may reflect (59:21). The keywords here are Rooh and Sada’a, which mean that the Qur’an originates life, quickens the soul, radiates the guiding light and moves the seemingly immobile objects. This is the kind of spiritual dynamism of which the Qur’an speaks.
