The Second Difference between the Teaching of the Holy Quran and the Torah


The second difference is that the Torah has only addressed the Children of Israel and never had any concern for, or association with, any other nation. This is the very reason that it has laid no emphasis on argumentation and evidence, because the Torah did not have in view any other denominations such as atheists, philosophers or Brahamos. Since the Quran considered every community and every nation, and since no further needs were to arise, the Quran provided sound argumentation to support its doctrines and practical injunctions. As such, the Quran states:

قُلۡ لِّلۡمُؤۡمِنِیۡنَ یَغُضُّوۡا مِنۡ اَبۡصَارِہِمۡ وَ یَحۡفَظُوۡا فُرُوۡجَہُمۡ

Meaning, say to the believers, do not lustfully look at the private parts of others and also safeguard your other furuj or organs as well. It is necessary for a man to keep their gazes low, lest they succumb to temptation at the sight of a woman that is a non-mahram. Even the ears are implied by the word furuj, which may lead one to temptation by listening to ill-natured stories. This is why it is generally instructed that you ought to safeguard all your furuj or ‘openings’ and keep them closed because:

ذٰلِکَ أَزْکَی لَھُمْ

In other words, this is best for them and such practice bears the hallmarks of the highest level of purity, which if possessed shall keep you away from evildoers.

(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 1, pp. 84-85)
