There is no permanent value beyond time and space. Everything is prone to change.  
Those things, which you regard as permanent values also change.  
Shariq

you dont concider Morals, Goodness, Decency, Virtue, Ethics, Values, or Principles as permanent values aknolwdged by human beings to every time?

Dear Momin, Nargis, SS, Salaam,  
 
TAQWA - A permanent value which may be a prerequisite for effectively observing and keeping in mind all of the other permanent values. I see Taqwa as constantly and Earnestly staying mindful of all of Allah's laws and other permanent values.  
 
Those who are strive to consistently remain mindful are referred to as Mutaqeen and from the outset The Quran makes a proclamation that it is a guide targeting the Mutaqeen in Surah al-Baqara, verse 2.  
 
ذَٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ  
 
وہ کتاب ہے کہ جس میں کوئی شک نہیں متقی بننے کے لئے ہدایت ہے۔  
 
Thus, Taqwa maybe the springboard or foundation from which we can effectively observe and uphold all of the other permanent values of The Quran.  
 
God Bless,  
Damon.

Dear Damon,  
 
These are meanings of" TAKWA" by Doctor Qamer,  
 
 
فظ متقی کا مادہ "و ق ی " ہے جس کے بنیادی معنی ہیں "بچنا"۔قرآن کی اصطلاح میں " و ق ی " کے معنی ہیں "ا س برے انجام سے بچنا جو احکامات الہی کی  
معصیت کے نتیجے میں ظہور پزیر ہوتے ہیں" ۔ اس کو دوسرے الفاظ میں یوں بھی کہہ سکتے ہیں " احکامات الہی سے ہم آہنگ ہونا " تاکہ انسان برائی سے بچتے ہوئے اس کے برے انجام سے بھی بچ سکے۔  
اس مقام پر لفظ للمتقین کا ترجمع "متقی بننے کے لئے " کیا گیا ہے۔ وہ اس لئے کہ للمتقین میں" لام " بطور "لام غایت "ہے۔ متقی کی صفات کے لئے دیکھئے اسی سورۃ کی آیت ۱۷۷ اور سورۃ المائدہ کی آیت ۲۔  
آئندہ ترجمع میں لفط متقی کا ترجمع بطور لفظ نہیں کیا جا ئے گا بلکہ اصطلاح کے طور پر متقی ہی کیا جائے گا۔  
 
 
 
Is this a value? Isn't it an attitude? What is a value? Who will not like to save himself from bad consequences?  
Doctor Assarul Islam has something else to say regarding Takwa, www.QuaideAzam.com  
 
Ok, Takwa is a value, but people are Muttaki before Quran was revealed. Isn't it ? That is why Quran says  
it is guidance for Muttakis. We are interested in those values which were not followed but Quran introduced.  
What are those? Let us examine them one by one. For example,  
 
1. Abolition of slavery.  
 
2. Respect to humanity.  
 
3.Equality of men and women.  
 
4. Provision of basic necessities to all.  
 
5. Nikkah.  
 
6. Truthfulness.  
 
7. Provision of peace.  
 
8. adel/justice.  
 
I was interested in enumeration of all such values Quran gives with references, we often talk about. Than I  
would request brother SS to prove that those values are not permanent and beyond time and space  
as he says,  
 
"There is no permanent value beyond time and space. Everything is prone to change.  
Those things, which you regard as permanent values also change."  
Shariq

Dear Momin,  
 
I can certainly appreciate Brother Dr. Assarul Islam's use of the connotation of Taqwa in the hopes that it can contribute to the Liberation of Pakistan and the Pakistani People. Dr. Assarul Islam is a person who I have come to learn about within the last 6 months or so and I honestly admire his passion and his knowledge of The Quran and the realities of Human life.  
 
I was bringing up Taqwa strictly from The Quranic perspective. If you feel that Taqwa is not a permanent values but is merely an attitude, then according to that logic points number 2. (Respect to humanity) and 6. (Truthfulness) of your list above can also be considered as mere attitudes instead of permanent values.  
 
So I believe the best thing to do is what you have already done in your last post which is to ask "questions". The important questions you asked were "Is this a value?" and "What is a value?"  
 
I suggest we use the method of tasreeful ayaat to answer these questions and then go to the various lexicons at our disposal.  
 
Here are the different ayaat of The Quran where different derivations of the root word "WaQiYa" is used....  
 
40:45, 44:56, 52:18, 52:27, 76:11, 16:81, 40:9, 2:201, 3:16, 3:191, 40:7, 66:6, 59:9, 64:16, 13:34, 13:37, 40:21, 19:13, 19:18, 19:63, 49:13, 92:17, 2:197, 2:237, 5:2, 5:8, 7:26, 9:108, 9:109, 20:132, 22:32, 22:37, 47:17, 48:26, 49:3, 58:9, 74:56, 91:8, 96:12, 3:28, 3:102, 2:103, 2:189, 2:203, 2:212, 3:15, 3:76, 3:172, 3:198, 4:77, 5:65, 5:93, 5:93, 5:93, 7:35, 7:96, 7:201, 12:109, 13:35, 16:30, 16:128, 19:72, 33:32, 39:20, 39:61, 39:73, 53:32, 92:5, 2:21, 2:63, 2:179, 2:183, 2:187, 2:224, 2:282, 2:283, 3:28, 3:120, 3:125, 3:179, 3:186, 4:9, 4:128, 4:129, 6:32, 6:51, 6:69, 6:69, 6:153, 7:63, 7:65, 7:156, 7:164, 7:169, 7:171, 8:29, 8:56, 9:115, 10:6, 10:31, 10:63, 12:57, 12:90, 16:52, 20:113, 23:23, 23:32, 23:87, 24:52, 26:11, 26:106, 26:124, 26:142, 26:161, 26:177, 27:53, 37:124, 39:24, 39:28, 41:18, 47:36, 65:2, 65:4, 65:5, 73:17, 2:24, 2:41, 2:48, 2:123, 2:189, 2:194, 2:196, 2:197, 2:203, 2:206, 2:223, 2:231, 2:233, 2:278, 2:281, 2:282, 3:50, 3:102, 3:123, 3:130, 3:131, 3:200, 4:1, 4:131, 5:4, 5:7, 5:8, 5:11, 5:35, 5:57, 5:88, 5:96, 5:100, 5:108, 5:112, 6:72, 6:155, 8:1, 8:25, 8:69, 9:119, 11:78, 15:69, 16:2, 22:1, 23:52, 26:108, 26:110, 26:126, 26:131, 26:132, 26:144, 26:150, 26:163, 26:179, 26:184, 29:16, 30:31, 31:33, 33:1, 33:37, 33:55, 33:70, 36:45, 39:10, 39:16, 43:63, 49:1, 49:10, 49:12, 57:28, 58:9, 59:7, 59:18, 59:18, 60:11, 64:16, 65:1, 65:10, 71:3, 2:2, 2:66, 2:177, 2:180, 2:194, 2:241, 3:76, 3:115, 3:133, 3:138, 5:27, 5:46, 7:128, 8:34, 9:4, 9:7, 9:36, 9:44, 9:123, 11:49, 13:35, 15:45, 16:30, 16:31, 19:85, 19:97, 21:48, 24:34, 25:15, 25:74, 26:90, 28:83, 38:28, 38:49, 39:33, 39:57, 43:35, 43:67, 44:51, 45:19, 47:15, 50:13, 51:15, 52:17, 54:54, 68:34, 69:48, 77:41, 78:31  
 
We can start by thoroughly studying how the different derivatives of this root word are used in different contexts to come up with an idea of its definition(s). Afterwards, we can check our understanding with the various Arabic Lexicons such as Lane's Arabic-English Lexicon, to which the page for the root definition of Wa-Qi-Ya I have provided a link below...  
 
http://www.studyquran.org/LaneLexicon/Volume8/00000313.pdf  
 
 
Perhaps this can help to jumpstart the study.  
 
Regards,  
Damon.

Dear Damon,  
 
I do understand Tasreef-ul-ayat method of understanding Quran , but here I wanted people like you  
to pen down each Quranic values in one word or few words so that people like me could get their knowledge  
at a glance. Can anyone of you write a small book-let on Quranic  
values? CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE ?

Dear Momin,  
 
With the posting of all of the ayaat with "WaQiYYa" and Lane's Lexicon at our disposal, would it not be best if YOU AND I BOTH contribute?  
 
Neither one of us is better or more capable than the other. Instead of attempting to lead (and do a poor job at it) I'd much rather walk hand in hand and we can discover the truth of these issues TOGETHER.

Dear Damon, could you please explain , what do we mean by permanent values giving few examples  
from Quran. Do you think"WaQiYYa" is a permanent value? I wanted someone else to do the job being  
lousy, but you smartly involved me. Anyway your suggestion is good. I suggest people like you MOAZZEM  
bob. Mubashir Syed, Nargis, Aurangzeb,Alahmer should write a book giving Quranic values proving them  
beyond time and space.

Dear brother Momin, I was waiting that some other brothers will start to provide more information on the topics of “beyond time and space” and “permanent human values” argument background and what it means as it is being mention many times at aastana. So I am going to ignite the brain cells a little with some comments regarding these two topics to start the heated discussion.  
First these topics are not exactly related unless we bring Quran in between. You will find out when I get into the background of these. The relationship between two exists in context of Quran where both of these concept are merged. Quran being “beyond time and space” and consists of “permanent human values”. This is the relationship but these topics exist separately from each other and its development among Muslim scholars.  
“Beyond Time and Space” argument is not unique to Muslim thought but it exists in Christianity as well. In order to understand how it became a big issue we have to look at history. This topic is the dividing line between Asharite School of thought and Mutazilite school of thought. Mutazilite was based on the Qadariya approach that states that human being actions determines their position in heaven or hell and God has nothing to do with this. You actions and free will determines your end.  
Mutazilite thought was based on 4 principals (uniqueness of God , verse 112:1-5 , Free will of Man, verse 10:99, human personal responsibility for good and bad verse 2:286, moral imperative to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong verse 3:110)  
Whereas Asharite school was not happy with this Greek rationalist thought adopted by Mutazilite so they based their argument on Qida approach that says all power belongs to God and man is predetermined in his actions, good or evil, as well as his destination towards heaven or hell. (It was based on verse 7:188.)  
These good folks fought war of words and war of blood on this and then came Usuli School of thought and the founder is Imam Ibn Hanbal. He stated that Quran is word of Allah and Allah is beyond time and space so its word (quran) is beyond time and space. This was rather a middle ground Imam Ibn Hanbal found.  
So what it means “beyond time and space”, one meaning is that the man intellect is bound by time and our position in this space and we can’t escape so we are limited in understanding of Allah but Allah is beyond this limitation. It was argued that If Allah is beyond this limit of time and space his word is also beyond time and space. The second meaning goes in the middle of above two schools of thought. This argument goes with concept of created or uncreated (in Christianity) that every action is first thought out by us and it is not created/ happened physically yet but once we commit Allah creates the existence of it upon our action. In other words Allah facilitates through his creation an existence of action. It may be a good or bad action, it is up to us not up to Allah.  
Understanding these schools of thoughts needs coffee every half hour for few weeks to understand the point of views but in nutshell this is where this concept is coming from. You can read and research more on this if you like.  
Now the permanent human value this concept came from Shariah principals. I don’t have much research on this who came with this concept but it is based on following concepts.  
 
1 - life or al nafs  
2 - reason or al aql  
3 - descent or al nasab  
4 - property or al mal  
5 - religion or al din  
These values are further categorized into three hierarchical levels :  
1 - necessities or dharuriyyat  
2 - convenience or hajiat  
3 - refinements or kamaliat  
 
Now we have the starting point of this discussion and my 2 cents.

Dear Momin, Message from all the verses ( approximately 6666 ) should be valid for all times and not limited to any particular Era which might make it Null and Void in future. This is what i understand by Beyond time and space.  
 
Please let me know if you think otherwise with references of verses which u think are limited to time and space so as to discuss further and collectively judge if they are not beyond time and space.  
 
Thanks,  
Mubashir Syed.

Dear AlAhmer,  
 
You have given the background of the two concepts. That was informative. Now,  
we need to understand these concepts from aastana team's point of view. We need to know  
Quranic values and see how many, or all are beyond time& space? What is the need of more Prophets  
when these values have been revealed and preserved in the book form which is in original shape?  
Had bible been available in original form , than was their any need for another book, where as Alkitab is  
the same?  
 
Dear Mubashir Syed,  
 
Daughter gets I/2 share than son in property. How is it beyond time and space? just an example.

Comments by: AlAhmer On 18 February 2011Report Abuse
Brother Momin, this biggest hurdle in coming up a real understanding of Quranic human values is the proper translation. Dr Qamar’s translation so far is in progress. Without a proper translation it is really hard to come up a summary of human values and support them or even validate.  
Even the 5 values Shariah promoted (as I mention before) are based on traditional understanding and meanings are derived through power of reasoning. The example is “Life –al nafs” is based on verse 5:32. The traditional meaning as stated by Pickthall is :  
“For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth.”  
How it is understood by Shariah scholars is that human life should be preserved in terms of all human necessities (food, shelter, clothing, health, peace etc). In my view it is overly ambitious intellectual reasoning from a general statement into a rather complex interpretation. You can ask questions how it is beyond time and space etc.  
The issue I have is that you can take a generalize statement and make it a whole philosophy if you like. For example Adam Smith the visionary of capitalism said that “human beings are driven by self interest”. This is a general statement based on good intellectual judgment. Now we can take this statement and make it volumes of books in my view is overly ambitious interpretation.  
Obviously we like to consider things in the context they are said not to make them generalize and then write books after books over them. The verse I mention above context is Children of Israel but we can make it generalize and then write a whole value system it is up to us and depends on our intellectual advancement. This generalization could mean different ways and means to be employed to address necessities of human beings in different time frames of history and in future. Does this makes it a beyond time and space? I don’t know I still feel rather ambitious interpretation than specific and detailed.

Please find link where this question was initiated sometime back

We are waiting for Dr QZ or someone for explaining this verse. And break it down to rationality which would be beyond time and space.  
 
Note : If any message is not beyond time and space and limited to any Era then we do we need that ??.............just a thought!!! ( Hope am not sounding like Mullah )

Dear Momin ! As i understood through this aastana blog, Mr. moazzam enlighten us about Alkitab in his many posts,that each and every word (stories) written in Quran are beyond time and space.So we can extract the permanent values from this book same as we extract rules from the laws of nature. You given the example of the shares proportionality of taraka between female and male gender ie 1:2. Sure, it must be the permanent value set by Allah, if the said situation may arise in any era. Let me reproduce mr. Moazzam's views as under ":As for as distribution of"TARKA" (IF THEY LEFT ANY PERSONAL PROPERTY BEHIND THEM, DUE TO THE SOCIO ECONOMIC SYSTEM ESTABLISHED IN ANY SOCIETY (AT THEIR WILL) is concerns,Please read the Surah Alnisa from the start to the verse 42,here the mutual financial agreements and other trade /financial matters guide lines has been discussed. Keep in mind the verses 4/32--33 while reading the following. The distribution of property(Tarka) to the successors is a part of the main subject, as the shares of each one has been described in detail, see the verses 4/7--13. After describing other matters, Almighty again mentioned the ratio of shares to each successor ( distributing the 'TARKA" ) go to the verse 4/176. Mind you! qura'n never gives any specific socio economic system, rather values to balance the rights of each society member and protection of their rights. FINANCIAL EQUALITY AMONG EACH MEMBER IN THE PROVISION OF THE SOCIO ECONOMIC SYSTEM SHOULD BE BASED AT PEOPLE'S WILL .(PREROGATIVES)OF THE SOCIETY."

Dear Naeem Sheikh,  
 
You said,  
"You given the example of the shares proportionality of taraka between female and male gender  
ie 1:2. Sure, it must be the permanent value set by Allah, if the said situation may arise in any era."  
 
I still can not agree with the concept of permanent values above. Permanent value can not be suspended  
to suit a situation. That will not be beyond time and space.  
 
Values like, truthfulness, justice, respect to humanity, equality of gender, basic necessities for everyone.  
looking after ones parents, marriage laws and so on,can be called as permanent values.  
 
In my opinion Prophets job is to evolve their own society by solving its problems keeping ground realities  
in view and also giving them permanent values for their present and future development. So you find  
certain directions in their books applicable for their society in particular beside permanent values beyond  
time and space.That is the reason their was need for prophet after moses and jesus..... Take the example  
of "purda by women" I doubt it to be a permanent value. What about that time when humans didn't know  
how to grow cotton and make cloths.  
 
This is for the sake of discussion to attain clarity, something debatable.

Dear Momin! "THE PERMANENT VALUE" in this case is “TO KEEP ON BALANCED DISTRIBUTION AMONG EACH MEMBER" as you see the balanced universe around you, in each and every aspect, the gravity and distance has been set according to the proportionality of mass of each planet in the solar system.” Mind you! qura'n never gives any specific socio economic system, rather values to balance the rights of each society member and protection of their rights." (by moazzam). Dear Momin plz read the verse 18/27.

Dear momin! The story of As-hab-e-Kahf has neeb closed at verse 18/26 with the conclusion(WALA YUSHRIKU FI HUKMIHE AHADAA). The universal facts written in this book has been reminded in verse 18/27(Watlu ma oohiya elaika min KITAAB-E-RABBIKA) .This statement is in general, not specific to any event.

Dear Naeem Sheikh,  
 
If every thing in the book is beyond time and space than why so many prophets at different times at  
different places. Life keeps changing so are its complex problems in need of their solution. Repeat ion  
is not necessary. For example, what will happen if we humans find/meet aliens. We will need guidance  
to live with them.

Brother Momin you are very smart, I think you have the right idea of time and space argument. The reason I stated the background of this argument so we know why it is argued and for what purpose. First issue is as human being we cannot visualize and conceive something beyond time and space. Something that is not bound by time and 3 dimensions. If it exists or not exists it does not matter to an average human being. The whole purpose is to keep Quran at untouchable state so any argument can be rejected saying that it is beyond time and space so our comprehension is limited even if we understand it wrong at this time. This way you can never argue that Quran directives are wrong as if it sounds wrong then you have not understood it right as Quran can never be wrong (beyond time and space) as word of Allah who is (beyond time and space).  
If we argue that quran is bound by time and space then the argument will be that then it is not useful anymore as its directives are for old generations or time specific. So there is a vested interest to argue Quran being beyond time and space to keep it relevant for future.  
Brother Momin don’t think Imam Ibn Hanbal was not smart and intelligent. He was very smart because he put Mutazilite on a defense as they could not find a room to argue against it. It will goes like this.  
So not knowing the right translation but assuming that method of “Tarka” is what we understand by Quran then it is beyond time and space per Imam Ibn Hanbal argument. Because it is Allah’s stated directive if we don’t follow it, It will cause destructive consequences as Allah is beyond time and space so he knows that is best. If we argue that it does not make sense and it misses few situations then Imam Ibn Hanbal argument will be that you don’t understand it well due to our lack of comprehension as Quran is beyond time and space and can’t be wrong.  
Now if you can find a loop hole in this argument you will be smart as well but for that you have to accept Quran not being Quran and you will be declare excommunicated. Fool proof.  
I love to hear argument to explain the “beyond time and space” concept if someone already figure that out if past Muslim Scholars were unsuccessful in this.  
My opinion whatever its worth.

Momin:-If every thing in the book is beyond time and space than why so many prophets at different times at  
different places. Life keeps changing so are its complex problems in need of their solution.  
 
Naeem Sheikh:- All physical measuring unit scales had been strictly preserved in one of the European country for calibrating the new DEVELOPED ONE.  
 
Mind! Any sort of new developed equipment by any scientist / engineer in any discipline of technology will be tested and verified by these preserved standards.  
 
It is pertinent to mentioned here that the said standards are being replaced with natural values, for example unit of length has been replaced by LIGHT WAVE LENGTH.

I am bit confuse on this term we are using it too much without any stated definition.  
Permanent values or natural values or what do we mean by that?  
What is its definition?  
What is its rational or bases?  
What are the supported facts for that base?  
What are the Quranic verses that specifically talking about this?  
What is the translation of that verse and how you support your interpretation?  
There are only two ways to this kind of argument. Either find the bases and support them with Quran or Find a definition in Quran then support with facts from outside of Quran. If we have a particular thing in mind we can find something that will correlate in Quran but I am looking specifics not generalizations.

Dear Momin! You are right in your stance.In fact prophet of the time sets temporary values too as suited to his society in that era, drived from the permanent values available in Alkitab(beyond time and space). Same as the laws of nature are being considered as the permanent values. As for as my example is concerns,surely it doesn't has any match with the permanent valuse under question,but the simily for the time being. You know,that there are so many adventures in present which were not (from the world of existence) one century ago.

Dear Naeem Sheikh,  
 
I am glad you understood my point of view. Questions by brother AlAhmer widens the  
scope of this discussion. Can you proceed further with his questions as under,  
 
Permanent values or natural values or what do we mean by that?  
What is its definition?  
What is its rational or bases?  
What are the supported facts for that base?  
What are the Quranic verses that specifically talking about this?  
What is the translation of that verse and how you support your interpretation?

Dear Momin and Brother Alahmar ! Standardization(to set the permanent values) often means the process of establishing standards of various kinds and improving efficiency to handle people and their interactions. Standardization in this sense is often discussed along with such large-scale social changes as modernization, bureaucratization, homogenization, and centralization of societies. acception of permanent values can also be defined as: The development and implementation of concepts, doctrines, procedures and designs to achieve and maintain the required levels of compatibility & similarity among all mankind in large and specific to any society’s citizens.  
The temporary standards in sociology (civics) could be classified in two groups.  
 de facto standards which means they are followed by informal convention or dominant usage(normally cultural /religious)  
 de jure standards which are part of legally binding contracts, laws or regulations imposed by the government.  
THERE ARE TWO FOLLOWING ETERNAL STANDARDIZATION SOURCES FROM WHICH ALL TEMPORARY STANDARDS COULD BE DERIVED FOR HUMAN SCIENCES AS WELL AS FOR MATERIAL SCIENCES.  
1:- ALKITAB (QURAAN) FOR HUMANITIES UNIVERSAL VALUES.  
2:- LAWS OF NATURE.FOR MATERIAL SCIENCES AS WELL AS HUMANITY SCIENCES.  
NOTE:- all commandment and stories written in Quran possess eternal values evidents with the signs of natures.

Dear Moazzam,  
 
You defined permanent values as,  
 
)" often means the process of establishing standards of various kinds and improving efficiency to handle people  
and their interactions. "  
 
This definition is confusing. Please make another try to define.  
 
It will be much appreciated if you consider questions by AlAhmer and answer them one by one.  
 
His questions are,  
 
1. What is its definition?  
2. What is its rational or bases?  
3. What are the supported facts for that base?  
4. What are the Quranic verses that specifically talking about this?  
5. What is the translation of that verse and how you support your interpretation?  
 
 
Your answer will help us in understanding the concept of permanent values we so often talk about.  
Mr.Sharik , please be ready to prove your point of view logically after Moazzam answers vividly.

Thank you Brother Moazzam for commenting on this topic and advancing our discussion. However “Values” and “Standards” are not exactly the same.  
“Values” in Sociology are define as “the ideals, customs, institutions, etc., of a society toward which the people of the group have an affective regard. These values may be positive, as cleanliness, freedom, or education, or negative, as cruelty, crime, or blasphemy.” (per dictionary) Whereas  
“Standards” in sociology can be define as “those morals, ethics, habits, etc., established by authority, custom, or an individual as acceptable”. (per dictionary)  
The difference between two. Difference is authority. “Values” are voluntary acceptance by majority where as “Standard” is involuntary /enforce upon people.  
We are not discussing “standards” as those can be assumed as “laws”. We are talking “Values” or “Norms” if you like. Even though values or norms can also become law in some societies. Our focus is from whole humanity standpoint. As human beings from this diverse world we can’t agree with each other either on values nor on standards. This is just the way human beings are just to put in simple terms.  
Now try to answer my questions as I stated before for “permanent values” & "universal values" that brother Moazzam refers and “Natural values” that Brother Naeem refers. I am looking for specifics not generalization or ambitious interpretations.  
1.What is its definition?  
2. What is its rational or bases?  
3. What are the supported facts for that base?  
4. What are the Quranic verses that specifically talking about this?  
5. What is the translation of that verse and how you support your interpretation?  
Don’t think it is a challenge or anything, I just want to clarify my own opinions while learning from all of you.

Dear Alahmar, Brother Momin! This debate should be discussed in a philosofical domain which is beyond my capacity (limitations)SORRY.  
To remove any question mark at constitution it self is the domain of jurisprudance.where as explaination of constitution falls in the domain of jurisdiction.  
Being a meager student of Alkitab I have given my view points at the topic under question, that each and every word,sentence,complet verses and the stories written in alkitab are permanent (beyond time and space) where as the SENSE OF TERMINOLOGIES, STORIES, COMMANDMENTS, VERDICTS will be considered as THE PERMANENT VALUES in the humanity scieces. As well as the laws of nature also provids permanent values (universal values in humanities and material sciences).The prophet of the time would derive the temporary values out of this Alkitab to enlighten(guide) his nation.............................................AAMAL-E-RASOOL MAIN MANSHA-E-RASOOL PARMANENT VALUE HAI.

Thank you brother Moazzam. Your honesty is always appreciated. This discussion is philosophical from the beginning but I wanted to find out if there is some new linkage found with Quran. I read Allama Ghulam Ahmed Perwaz article on Permanent/universal values and he also didn’t provide any Quranic roots of this. His thesis was also based on philosophical grounds where he quoted theories of different philosophical thoughts.  
Without stated definition of certain terms we are leaving room for smart argument maneuvering. This is the case with these terms in discussion. We have total different opinions on these terms. I stated my bases for doubt with historical background on these terms.  
In my opinion, we are looking for something that is not there in Quran based on what we know at this time. Time will tell once proper translation will surface.  
I am sure no one is interested in philosophical discussion on this at this time.

Dear Brothers Moazzam, Al Ahmar,  
 
Allow me to try my little bit. I haven't been able to go through the thread deeply. However, I do think philosophy is not necessarily required to answer some very direct questions from Quran.  
 
Moreover, to evaluate and analyze the philosophy of "Permanence/Stability & Change", we will have to travel back in time to the 5th century B.C. when this discussion took its initial start and Parmenides presented his theory of Permanence in contrast to that of Heraclitus. (I would much sooner have a peaceful nap than going into t-h-a-t !!!)  
 
1.What is definition of permanent values?  
2. What is its rational or bases?  
3. What are the supported facts for that base?  
4. What are the Quranic verses that specifically talking about this?  
5. What is the translation of that verse and how you support your interpretation?  
 
Q.1: What is definition of permanent values?  
 
ANS: By “values” we mean “Principles, Standards”. So the DEFINITION would be “those Principles and/or Standards that hold unshakable permanence/stability; viz.,which do not change with the change of time and situation.  
 
Q.2: What is its rational or bases?  
 
ANS: I would say, when we call some “values” as “permanent”, we do that on the basis of having observed and testified their validity through the ages. We have witnessed them holding ground and maintaining their virtues throughout the known history of mankind, on to the present day.  
 
Q.3: What are the supported facts for that base?  
 
ANS: Truth (حق ), Perseverance (صبر ), Equality, Forgiveness, Charity, Sustenance for the Poor, Freedom of Choice & Expression, Respect for humanity, Rule of Law, etc. are the inconspicuous existing supporting facts that embody the basis of permanent values today. They are, in principle, recognized and supported worldwide, just as these have been regarded as such ever since the beginning of civilization.  
 
Q.4: What are the Quranic verses that are specifically talking about it?  
ANS: Quran has highlighted these Values all over its text. Some examples:  
 
17/70: Respect for humanity.  
5/2: Helping and cooperating with each other.  
2/219, 2/3: Spending generously in the way of Allah.  
70/25: The Right of the deprived upon your wealth.  
16/90: Mandatory Justice and generosity.  
3/79: Mandatory obedience towards the Book.  
42/38: Rule by consultation / no autocracy.  
 
And about your daily conduct/character: 2/264, 4/145, 2/44, 61/2, 2/188, 7/31, 33/70, 4/5, 17/53, 22/30, 6/153, 2/42, 31/19, 23/3, 25/72, 6/151, 31/18, 31/19, 24/30, 24/31, 17/36, 49/12, 28/55, 4/86, 24/61, 49/11, 6/153.  
 
Q.5: What is the translation of that verse and how do you support your interpretation?  
ANS: These are no complex verses. Easily translated and understood.  
 
Last few lines in response to Brother Al-Ahmer’s following opinion :  
 
“In my opinion, we are looking for something that is not there in Quran based on what we know at this time. Time will tell once proper translation will surface.”  
 
Aurangzaib: I think, we have only to know first what those values we are talking about are. Once we pinpoint them, they can be looked for and easily found in Quran. Please check the details of those given above in response to Q.4.  
 
But if we insist that we do need to see the words like “THESE ARE THE PERMANENT VALUES” specifically written in Quran, then we have to go a little bid deeper into some meanings of Quranic terms that very clearly show the meaning of “Permanence”.  
 
From its very beginning, Quran makes it clear that whatever follows, or what it is going to teach us, stands PERMANENT/TIMELESS in its nature and substance. Undoubtedly, all values, principles and ideals it offers us, together form a Code of Conduct – a character building guidance – for all times to come.  
 
Kindly concentrate on the very first lines of Divine Guidance:  
 
2/2: ذلک الکتاب لا ریب فیہ ھدی للمتقین  
“This for you is the Collection of Rules (Laws/essential principles/mandatory values). There is no doubt (لا ریب ), contained in it (فیہ ), is a “PERMANENT/TIMELESS CODE OF CONDUCT (ھدی - Lane)” for those desirous of safeguarding themselves against negative results of transgression."  
 
(Hudan ھدی: Since it is in masdar form here, the definition of a masdar is “A verbal noun NOT CONNECTED TO TIME and to who the subjects and objects are”. Hence, with this knowledge it would mean “A TIMELESS/PERMANENT” code of conduct ).  
 
I don't know how far it is going to satisfy your quest, but it is............Just my two pence!  
 
Thank you.

Brother Aurangzaib, You attention to us is always a fresh breeze. I appreciate your assistance in this discussion. I hope you don’t mind if I play devil’s advocate sometimes. Purpose is to fresh up our thoughts and understanding.  
 
Q.1: What is definition of permanent values?  
 
ANS: By “values” we mean “Principles, Standards”. So the DEFINITION would be “those Principles and/or Standards that hold unshakable permanence/stability; viz.,which do not change with the change of time and situation.  
AlAhmer – If we talk about standards/principles in general sense then those can’t be permanent by definition. We have various standards and principles made by us those evolve with our understanding as time goes by. If I read your mind our object of these standards/principles are “human beings”. We talking standards/principles those act upon human beings without our involvement or standards/principles those are made by us those are force upon others. If our focus is human then from our perspective which (standard/principle) is permanent beyond time and space? As I mention before standard/principle/laws etc are involuntary and force upon so as human we have choice to adhere those or violate. Value is something that we have a huge regard or respect but that is voluntary as not everyone will hold something in regard and respect. In order for something to be timeless and permanent it has to be common (universal) and involuntary and beyond our choice of acceptance or denial as well as ever existing. This is premises of timeless and permanent. This was the bases to keep God as entity at this premise as well timeless and permanent. In order words we have to find something that can be timeless and permanent as God to label this definition. Everything else has no equivalence with this.  
May be I am just pulling this from philosophical standpoint with no avail. My attention was to bring these terms into light “permanent”, beyond time and space a.k.a timeless” and usage of those.  
As you stated brother Auranzaib “Truth, Perseverance, Equality, Forgiveness, Charity, Sustenance for the Poor, Freedom of Choice & Expression, Respect for humanity, Rule of Law” are values as human being we regard as universal (common) for all human being on earth and should be respected and legislated as standards/principles/laws. Permanent from the perspective of living on earth “Yes”, Timeless from the perspective of our perception of time “Yes”.  
I hope this clears up the point a little and I know it will not be the end of this but just a beginning :-)  
Sorry for keeping it to just one question only as this is all my little brain can handle :-)

Dear Brother AlAhmer,  
 
I am getting more and more afraid of mental wrestling as the days go by. Perhaps it is not fear in its strictest sense, but a certain subtle tension, a perceptible undertow of nervousness, as Aastana now enjoys a substantial influx of the best brains from all over the Quranic world – our own Quranic world. You are one brilliant example and because of that I seem pulled towards some kind of involvement anyhow. It’s a pleasure to offer some clarifications in response to your points.  
 
AlAhmer –" If we talk about standards/principles in general sense then those can’t be permanent by definition. We have various standards and principles made by us those evolve with our understanding as time goes by. If I read your mind our object of these standards/principles are “human beings”. We talking standards/principles those act upon human beings without our involvement or standards/principles those are made by us those are force upon others.”  
 
 
Aurangzaib: Very true. There are some standards/principles made “by us” that can’t be called permanent. But I think we are not discussing “those”. We are discussing the “Divine and Universal ones” from the Divine Scriptures, commonly accepted by humanity.  
 
Al-Ahmar: As I mention before standard/principle/laws etc are involuntary and force upon so as human we have choice to adhere those or violate. Value is something that we have a huge regard or respect but that is voluntary as not everyone will hold something in regard and respect. In order for something to be timeless and permanent it has to be common (universal) and involuntary and beyond our choice of acceptance or denial as well as ever existing. This is premises of timeless and permanent. This was the bases to keep God as entity at this premise as well timeless and permanent. In order words we have to find something that can be timeless and permanent as God to label this definition. Everything else has no equivalence with this.  
May be I am just pulling this from philosophical standpoint with no avail. My attention was to bring these terms into light “permanent”, beyond time and space a.k.a timeless” and usage of those.  
 
Aurangzaib: In a rational discussion, there always is involved some essential element of philosophy. So, just don’t worry about that, my Brother.  
First of all, some confusion is arising by taking “values” as something separate from “principles/standards”. Let us clear that confusion. VALUES literally mean “Principles, Standards”. These are not two separate things, according to English lexicons. I hope by this clarification, a large part of our quest will be cleared forthwith.  
Secondly, Those VALUES that are Permanent/Timeless can only be those prescribed by Divinity. We may easily call them Scriptural Values. That may make our discussion more clear and to the point.  
Now there are some man made values as you rightly said. However, Man made values can’t be Permanent as man is not eternal and is known to be unable to get rid of selfish or self-centered outlook. Eternal is only the existence of Almighty, so HE alone can think eternally and propose Eternal values that are as timeless and permanent as GOD Himself.  
And you are right, HIS bestowed Values are voluntary. Man can follow them or reject them. However, man must face the consequences of rejecting them.  
 
Al-Ahmar: Permanent from the perspective of living on earth “Yes”, Timeless from the perspective of our perception of time “Yes”.  
 
Aurangzaib: I appreciate your thought pattern as it reflects in-depth perspectives. Sometimes I get confused when talking about “our perceptions of time”. Again a lot of philosophy is involved in any discussion about time and its human perceptions. The following paragraph would reveal to you that you have “un-intentionally” again touched a formidable subject in deep philosophy that I was trying to run away from. Please spare some moments to read this and try to take it lightly and enjoy:  
 
“You might be knowing well that "unity" or "unreality" of time (from Parmenides onwards in recorded history of human intellect in west) is a cardinal doctrine of many metaphysical systems. It would be even clear to you that now, in postmodern age, physics is no longer physics and even mathematics, from George Cantor onwards, have become metaphysics! What was believed and reduced to "material hump" is once again a mystery---a singular consciousness!  
 
So me must see time (building block of history) with metaphysical angle i.e. the importance of time is practical than real---it is (time) more related to our desires than (to) truth. It is not a new approach for us i.e. Eastern! But it, the unreality of time, was indigestible for Western extroverted minds so far. For their gaze was fixed on phenomenal world....not the world behind the world! Their method was dissection or analysis---breaking whole into parts---but our (Eastern) approach was direct opposite----synthesis--welding parts into whole---When we are victim of dying analytical approach these questions arise! Once we are out of it---knowing their limitations and myopic-ness---all questions vanish! We stop seeing reality in fragments! The felt difference between time is not an intrinsic difference, but only a difference in relation to us! Rumi says:  
 
Past and future are what veil God from our sight  
Burn up both of them with fire! How long  
Wilt thou be partitioned by these segments as a reed?  
 
West cherished the idea of linear or chronological time to hold baseless illusion of progress (without destination) to its chest! At the cost of? Dividing one humanity and earthlings into opposing camps! For example you were borne in 1980 and I was borne in 1975--what I and you have to do with the enmity of ages? Linear or chronological history of human species creates a false and enemy-based illusion of continuation! And this kind of history is preserved and kept alive to serve this end! So, the biggest question is how to get rid of time and history? “  
 
Ha-----ha------ha ?  
 
Have a nice time.

My respected brother aurangzaib. The last thing in my mind is to create tensions or nervousness at aastana. You are one of the reasons we are here as your knowledge is deep and diverse that keeps us engaged. Your involvement is opportunity for learning something new and I admire your tolerance for people like me who ask more questions than answers. We agree on most things than we disagree and that is very healthy. Other thing is that brother in this topic most people have no interest except three or four of us as it is boring, confusing and complex. I will take a little opportunity to highlight where we agree and disagree to wrap this dry subject and you can comment as necessary.  
Aurangzaib – “There are some standards/principles made “by us” that can’t be called permanent. But I think we are not discussing “those”. We are discussing the “Divine and Universal ones” from the Divine Scriptures, commonly accepted by humanity. “  
Alahmer – I agree with you that there is difference in divine universal and man made standards/principles. Divine standards/principles are even handed (common/universal), involuntary as well as voluntary and for the betterment of human beings. For example standard of “air to breath” is even handed/common/universal and involuntary whereas standard/principle of “charity” is voluntary and may not be even handed/common/universal. The difference is important and the reason is that anything that God has to provide for the very existence and balance is involuntary and even handed/common/universal whereas anything that human beings have to perform is voluntary and not universal/common.  
Now the question that divine provide the standards/principles to human beings that we have to perform only to bring peace and harmony are up to us. Example of charity if we take, it is a standard/principle that depends on so many factors those are time and situation based so the level of its implementation varies depending on situation. For example there may be a bigger social and economic difference in some societies than other so need and implementation of charity will vary and even its form will vary. However, this standard/principle “charity” is inherently good in nature and applies universally as long as there is a need that exists. I agree to this understanding if this is what you think you are implying.  
Aurangzaig – “VALUES literally mean “Principles, Standards”. These are not two separate things, according to English lexicons.”  
Alahmer- Brother I am sure you don’t think I am purposely spinning the meanings of these terms or I am unaware of the meanings. I can be wrong and I will accept that without hesitation. I am listing the meaning of these terms per defined standards and you can decide if I was confusing this. Even in normal English usage these terms don’t mean the same.  
According to Cambridge dictionary, Values as Noun mean “importance” Definition is “the importance or worth of something for someone” , “how useful or important something is “ , “the beliefs people have about what is right and wrong and what is most important in life, which control their behavior family/moral/traditional values”  
According to Cambridge dictionary, Standard as Noun means “a pattern or model that is generally accepted”.  
According to Cambridge dictionary, principle as Noun means “a basic idea or rule that explains or controls how something happens or works”, “approving a moral rule or standard of good behavior”.  
I am not even going to touch concept of time as what you said is true as time is a complex topic from science and philosophical level and I have no intention to touch this at this point.  
Again I appreciate your help in understanding this and I will always look for you guidance or many topics in future. My respects.

Dear Brother AlAhmer,  
 
Your joining of Aastana was actually a stroke of luck for this company of friends. I never said you intended any confusion. I was only expressing my own fears or nervousness that was due to my own weaknesses in the face of the presence of very intelligent truth seekers in our Blog. Needless to mention that it is friends like you and some equally talented others who would soon be shouldering the responsibility of running and managing this forum of yours.  
 
I am in full agreement with your understanding of the role of "Divine Values" as you have reflected in your post.  
 
The only point that might still need some clarification is the "Meaning of Values". Unfortunately, Cambridge Dictionary has not given the meanings of both "Value" and "Values", which actually are far apart from each other in their meanings. You are right in saying that "Value means importance". But please check that it is "Value" not "Values", as you have written. I will copy/paste underneath some material from two dictionaries and I think that would be an easy way to reach the roots of our required meanings. Please go through carefully. Cambridge does not give both separately, but Encarta very clearly explains them separately :  
 
Please see " VALUE " :  
CAMBRIDGE:  
Value: noun (MONEY)  
 
Definition  
[C or U] the amount of money which can be received for something  
She had already sold everything of value that she possessed.  
What is the value of the prize?  
The value of the pound fell against other European currencies yesterday.  
Property values have fallen since the plans for the airport were published.  
I thought the offer was good value (for money)/US ALSO a good value (=a lot was offered for the amount of money paid).  
(Definition of value noun (MONEY) from the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary)  
Explore value in the Visual Thesaurus »  
 
ENCARTA DICTIONARY:  
Val•ue [vállyoo]  
noun (plural val•ues)  
1. monetary worth: an amount expressed in money or another medium of exchange that is thought to be a fair exchange for something  
• goods to the value of $500  
2. full recovered worth: the adequate or satisfactory return on or recompense for something  
• It's value for money.  
3. worth or importance: the worth, importance, or usefulness of something to somebody  
• a ring with great sentimental value  
Microsoft® Encarta® 2009. © 1993-2008 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.  
 
And HERE comes NOW the term "VALUES" that we are actually talking about :-  
 
ENCARTA DICTIONARY:  
val•ues, plural noun  
principles or standards: the accepted principles or standards of a person or a group  
Microsoft® Encarta® 2009. © 1993-2008 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.  
 
I trust it will clear the remaining little bit of riddle in fully understanding the essence of "Divine Permanent Values" we were originally discussing. Please feel free to point out, or ask, anything that comes to your mind.  
 
Best wishes.

Thank you brother Aurangzaib for clarifying this. I think I got stuck with semantics of the word "values" than the point I wanted to convey. I accept my misunderstanding. I appreciate your clarification.  
These are the few ways “values” is used totally agreeing with your stated meanings. Christian values, American values, Islamic values, human values, family values, moral values, permanent values, universal values etc.  
By saying values this way, it implies neither required acceptance nor required conformance. In my opinion these values we refer to are not for optional consideration but rather required by divine per Quranic theme or in general sense. When we say Quran as constitution we imply that there is nothing optional but fundamental and required. This is the bases of my long stretched discussion. We should be saying permanent/universal principles those are required in any situation and at any time (beyond time and space). Example would be “human dignity”, it is required not optional. It should be applied in any situation (war, famine, peace, prosperity, geography etc) and it is span across all times as long as single human being exists.  
At least my dear brother we are so much close in agreement with a hair thin difference and that is not that relevant.  
Thank you for correcting my understanding and I appreciate that you help me learned more every time.  
My best regards

Dear Brother AlAhmer,  
 
You have beautifully explained your understanding, according to the clarified meanings of the word in plural, i.e., "VALUES". I can promptly declare that we both seem in full harmony, even without "a hair-thin difference" on this topic. However, brainstorming is always conducive to learning and should continue without restriction in purely objective style. At least this is how I think about it.  
 
May God increase our knowledge constantly, thus enabling us to serve his exalted plans in a befitting way.

The rays of the sun go parallel and do not cross each other. When they fall on earth it is sun light.  
The temperature rises as the sun keeps rising above the horizon from dawn to dusk. That is necessary  
for existence of life on earth. Similarly, all prophets are the rays of light from the same sun. Jesus never  
said anything against Moses and Muhammad never said anything against Jesus. They testified each  
other. They gave timely directions to up hold permanent values keeping in view ground realities.  
We still need guidance to ensure application of divine values in present time of darkness. These  
directions (which is not permanent value) besides permanent values is included in the message of  
Prophets of their time. Elevating position of women is a permanent value. All Prophets contributed in  
their times. Still women is persecuted? Permanent values always remain the same. Directions for their  
application in the respective societies of their prophets can not be the same. It is correct to say that the  
messages of all Prophets had the same objectives but it is not understood how we say that each and  
every word is beyond time and space? We must also keep in mind the wonderful discussion regarding  
divinity which took place on this blog while using this word in our discussions. Language is a human  
experience and not eternal. Similar is the case with human intelligence and evolving human society.  
We should also keep in mind our new concepts of Wahi discussed in our discussions.
