Human intellect is a great blessing of Allah that He has gifted man with. On the basis of this wisdom Allah has given man honor and priority over other beings. For the knowledge and insight of Sharia objectives, the role of reason is very important. The jurists have given much importance to the role of reason for the knowledge of Sharia objectives. An analysis of the jurists' views about the role of reason for the insight of Sharia objectives has been presented in this research paper.
Sir Syed Ahmad Khan who was greatly influenced by western thought and action, wanted Muslims of subcontinent to adopt the social & civil life style of west. To achieve this objective Sir Syed believed that Muslims could never attain prosperity and progress unless they were liberated from the chains of their sound traditional values of past. Tafseer-al-Quran is the reflection of the same thought and believe of Sir Syed. His materialistic and rationalistic approach towards religion has created a gulf between Sir Syed and the other Muslim scholars of his time.
In his commentary Sir Syed has tried to prove all Qura’nic concepts according to the nature, human intellect and scientific laws which are based on observations & experiment, where it was not possible to do so, he has employed modern methodology of exegesis based on ‘Ietizali’ school of thought. He denied the miracles of Prophets on his way to judge them according to the criteria of ‘nature’ and ‘intellect’.
