Make your personal opinion about the Quran in 5 minutes(!!!)

November 27, 2010

Most people have never read the Quran. It is not an easy project and most people will probably never read it. So, most people making their opinions about the Quran simply by adopting a position of some authority who “knows the Quran”.

The problem is that authorities (people) who claim to “know the Quran” have extremely different perceptions of this book.

On one hand, there are the pro-Quran authorities who claim that the Quran is a book of love and peace which preach to tolerance and solidarity.

On the other hand, there are the anti-Quran authorities (which I tend to accept) who claim that the Quran is a fanatic militant paranoid book, and the direct cause to the fact that the Muslim world takes the lead in areas like women slavery and religious wars.

Simple test

I suggest a simple test: decide how much time you have at the moment. Open the Quran (English translation here) in a random place, and start reading. 5 minutes will be more than enough to understand where the wind blows.

A moderating comment

Luckily the Muslim world is not as horrible as the Quran orders it to be. Muslim people are people like any other people; so the vast majority of them find workarounds that make them able to think that they are living by this monstrous book, without losing their humanity.

    What about the Talmud :-), it takes only 1 minute not 5 minutes to discover the shit…

    Nice try, I DO want people to read the Quran and make up their mind…

      Nice. It seems like we both agree that that people should know the Quran and that the Talmud is full of shit.

      The only thing I want to comment about it is that it is not a zero sum game and the shit of the Quran does not cancel the shit of the Talmud and vice versa

        However, your link directing to a collection of selective picked quotes, which is weaker argument than opening it in random place and start reading.

        I wonder whats wrong in the exalpnation I gave. It no way contradicts established Islamic principals. All our great scholars follow such lines when it comes to answering allegations. You need to go through \”Hujjat Al-Baligha\” by Shah Wali Ullah and \”Ashraful Jawab\” by Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi.And as to the people. Let them read the post and your and mine comments as well and decide what is right and what is wrong. Whatever I write I discuss with learned scholars and they don\’t find any trouble with it and unless you exactly tell why is it wrong, I dont care about your comments.

    This is a perfectly acbaltecpe explanation of this verse as it does not go against any Islamic principal that I’m aware of. I want to congratulate bro Waqar for his efforts and research into these hot-button issues, because his website has been a great service to me.I ask Allah [swt] to make this blog a massive success, and to bless the contributers here with endless rewards in dunya and akhira! Ameen!Salaam/Peace
