I don’t get it. I just don’t.

I don’t get the fact that Muslims don’t seem to get it.

And I don’t get the fact that the Non-Muslims and the world don’t seem to get it.

They all seem to have some vague notion that That BookThe Qur’an Karim: Dhaalikal Kitaab — is from God Almighty.

Some believe it; some allege it; some dispute it; some quietly dismiss it; and, for some, it is just another cliche — along with a million cliches that fill their lives, and that sometimes influence and guide their actions.

So, Qur’an and God, all kinds of people make all kinds of association between the two — positively or negatively, warmly and passionately or only lukewarmly and even somewhat skeptically, their mental fingers crossed, as it were.

But these are all matter of belief — or disbelief.

If you think this assertion is true, it is belief.

If you do so — believe that Qur’an is from God — with the bottom of your heart as it were, it is faith or Iman.

And if you say “OK, let us talk about it!” it may be no more than an assumption — a working proposition that may take you in either direction: belief or lack thereof.

But what most people seem to be clueless about is a simple fact of empirical, verifiable data. It is an objective reality that anyone anywhere can see with their own eyes.

And that fact has to do with how many times the Qur’an makes a reference to God Almighty — right in the body of the Qur’an — and does so in the most direct and unequivocal manner.


Let us not forget that the Qur’an is our link with Allah, Muhammad, Sallallahu wa Sallam, Islam and Truth.

Hence Shaitan will do anything he can to disconnect us from these realities.

But although that may be so, Allah opens the hearts of many non-Muslims to want to own a copy of the translation of the Qur’an and find out what is in this most amazing book – the Qur’an. […]

The Qur’an, every single word of it, is the most glorious word of Almighty Allah – direct; unadulterated; pure; authentic; original; and clear.

It was revealed by Allah to Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, to be a complete guide for humanity in all its affairs.

The Qur’an, thus, was revealed for the specific purposes of being:

(a) Read,

(b) Understood,

(c) Practiced.

It is, therefore, the duty of every Muslim to read the Qur’an; to understand the Qur’an; and to endeavor his or her utmost to put the Qur’an into practice.

In their own personal and family lives as well as in their cultures and societies.

There are no ifs or buts about this. This is what Muslims are supposed to do, whether they are male or female.

And this is what really makes a person a Muslim or a non-Muslim in the truest and fullest sense of that expression. […]

I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what or where you are. And I have no idea what you do or don’t do. But regardless of all that, I would still like you to read that book – the most amazing and incomparable Al-Qur’an!

For, there is no other book quite like that book in the world! There never was, and there never will be. Not to belittle, disparage or put any other book down. But simply to tell you that this is a book you owe it to yourself to read.

This book – I mean that book – is quite unlike any other book you may have read. […]
