Some people think that since the Muslims have got the perfect book – the Holy Quran – to guide them no reformer is needed by them; they can get guidance from the Holy Quran by themselves.
The idea is very erroneous and the facts of history do not lend support to it.
That shows very clearly that even when a perfect teaching is there, such people are needed who are the manifestation of the various attributes of God and through whom a river of the fresh signs of God begin to flow. Moreover the Reformers who are raised by God and are vouchsafed the living word of God have a special kind of attraction for those who are good natured. In fact it is this very attraction that wakes up the sleeping people.
