Nilai bertuhan dalam ilmu kejuruteraan: Sorotan ayat al-Quran serta penghayatannya berdasarkan Tafsīr Fī Zilāl al-Qur’ān karya Sayyid Quṭb (1906-1966)

Divine values in engineering science: Highlights of Quranic verses and its appreciation based on Tafsīr Fī Zilāl al-Qur’ān by Sayyid Quṭb (1906-1966)




Tafsīr Fī Zilāl al-Qur’ān, Engineering, Technology, Divine Values


The Quran has been the main source of knowledge for all humankind throughout the ages. Engineering is one of the branches of knowledge that impacts technology development. There are verses in the Quran that explain this engineering science indirectly. The stories about engineering in the Quran can also provide valuable lessons for humans and serve as preparation for the afterlife. However, discussions about the Quranic verses concerning various branches in the engineering field and their influence on the lives of engineers still need to be completed in journals. Therefore, this study presents the verses and stories in the field of engineering as well as their effects on the divine values in the life of an engineer. Library research is used to achieve the objective by referring to the Quran and the book Tafsīr Fī Zilāl al-Qur’ān as primary references. Writings on general history, education, and engineering are also consulted to achieve the objective. This study finds that the Quranic verses significantly affect the divine values of individuals involved in this engineering field and positively impact the formation of morals as a Muslim. This effect is closely related to the appreciation of the Quranic verses and efforts to practice them daily. The Quran was revealed as a guide and provision for humans to worship Allah. This writing can also open the eyes of every Muslim to the expansive interpretation of the Quran and convince their hearts that the Quran is a miracle that does not contradict scientific theories.
