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 Book-- The 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.

Human beings have much to be modest about.

Their life on earth is only a matter of decades -- for the best placed among them.

And the most robust among them in health could be laid low by an organism they cannot even see. 

And those who think are the most powerful and indomitable among them are in a holding pattern for death, which no one knows when it will strike, how and where.

Not one of them has ever beaten the odds of death, decay and turning to dust. 

And human knowledge is so pitiful that it barely goes beyond a few random facts of dubious validity tagged on to some ill-formed guesses and hypotheses. 

Against such a backdrop, the thought that an All-Powerful and All-Knowing God exists is tantalizing. 

And the belief -- for a belief is all it is -- that he is also a Loving, Caring God is overwhelming.
