Insan Collection
The view of the human being (Insan / انسان) expressed in the Quran has always seemed remarkable to me. When we look at the word “Insan” in Quranic verses, we encounter many good traits and many undesirable traits in what it represents. In the Quran, the human being is weak, hasty, restless, fretful, ungenerous – a creature created from clay, from molded mud, from a clod of earth. On the other hand, he is also the created being who accepted the burden of rust that God had offered to the heavens, to the earth, and to the mountains, but which each of them had refused to bear because they feared so heavy a weight. In the Quran, the word human (انسان) is used 65 times, and in this collection I have endeavored to present an image of Insan as found in the Quran, emphasizing those verses that speak about humankind.
