As you come to the Qur'an, you come to a new world. No other venture in your life can be so momentous and crucial, so blissful and rewarding, as your journey to and through the Qur'an.
It is a journey that will take you through the endless joys and riches of the words that your Creator and Lord has sent to you and all mankind. Here you will find a world of untold treasures of knowledge and wisdom to guide you on the pathways of life, to mould your thoughts and actions. In it you will find deep insights to enrich you and steer you along the right course. From it you will receive a radiant light to illumine the deeper reaches of your soul. Here you will encounter profound emotions, a warmth to melt your heart and bring tears running down your cheeks.
It is crucial for you because, as you travel through the Qur'an, at every step you will be summoned to choose, and to commit to Allah. To read the Qur'an is nothing less than to live the Qur'an willingly, sincerely, devotedly, and totally. The outcome of your entire life depends on how you heed the call given by Allah. The journey is therefore decisive for your existence, for mankind, for the future of human civilization.
A hundred new worlds lie in its verses
Know, then, that it is the Qur'an, and only the Qur'an, which can lead you on and on to success and glory in this world and in the world to come.
What is the Qur'an?
It is beyond man's power to comprehend, or to describe, the greatness and importance of what the Qur'an holds for him. Yet, to begin with, you must have some idea of what it is and what it means to you, and such that you are inspired to immerse the whole of yourself in the Qur'an, in total commitment, complete dedication and ceaseless pursuit, as it demands.
The Qur'an is Allah's greatest blessing or you. It is the fulfillment of His promise to Adam and his descendants: 'There shall come to you guidance from Me, and whatsoever follows My Guidance no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow' (al Baqarah 2:38). It is the only weapon for your frail existence as you struggle against the forces of evil and temptation in this world. It is the only means to overpower your fear and anxiety. It is the only 'light' (nur), as you grope in the darkness, with which to find your way to success and salvation. It is the only healing (shifa) for your inner sickness, as well as the social ills that may surround you .It is the constant reminder (dhikr) of your true nature and destiny, of your station, your duties, your rewards, your perils.
It was brought down by one who is powerful, and trustworthy in the heavens - the angel Jibrail. Its first abode was that pure and sublime heart, the like of which man has never had - the heart of the Prophet Muhammad, blessings and peace be on him.
More than anything, it is the only way to come nearer and closer to your Creator. It tells you of Him, of His attributes, of how He rules over the cosmos and history, of how He relates Himself to you, and how you should relate to Him, to yourself, to your fellow men and to every other existence.
The rewards that await you here are surely many, increasing manifold and the Hereafter, but what awaits you at the end of the road promises Allah in the Hadith qudsi, 'the eye has seen not, nor the ear heard, nor the heart of man ever conceived and, adds Abu Hurayra: read if you wish (in al-Sajdah 32:17): 'No human being can imagine what joys are being kept hidden for them in reward for all that they did' (Bukhari, Muslim)
Excerpt from The Way to the Quran by Khurram Murad
wisdom given to all human kind who listen and notes on it.
To John Shumann,
The false prophet is the anti-Christ & the anti-Christ is a Jew. Read your Bible man! He is not an Arab and cannot possibly be an Arab. he cannot possibly be Mohammed (pbuh).
You Christians & Jews extremists are full of contradictions!
Some verses 4 u to compare the word of God, the Quran with the corrupted Bible:
Bible: I am the Lord, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children
unto the third and fourth generations. [Deut. 5:7]
Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers.
Quran: Every soul draws the meed of its acts on none but itself: no bearer of
burdens can bear th burden of another. [6:164]
Bible: And the Lord said, "Go through the city, and smite: let not your eye
spare, neither have you pity. Slay utterly old and young both maids and
little children, and woman. [Ezek. 9:5]
And the Lord sain unto Moses, "Avenge the children of the Mid'-an-ites
They warred against the Mid'-i-an-ites, as the Lord commanded Moses,
and they slew all the males. And they TOOK ALL WOMEN OF CAPTIVES, AND
THEIR LITTLE ONES, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all
their flocks, and all their goods. And they burnt all their cities
wherein they dwelt and all their goodly castles, with fire. Moses said
"Have you saved all the women alive?
17 NOW KILL EVERY MALE AMONG THE LITTLE ONES, AND KILL EVERY WOMAN that
has known a man by lying with him, But all the women children, that
have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
Hadeeth: The Prophet Mohamad said to his army before going to a fight "Depart
in the name of Allah, and by his help. And kill not any old man nor
young boy nor child, nor woman, But be good doers for Allah loves
those who do good.
Bible: We conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the
law. [Roman 3:28]
Quran: Do men think that they will be left alone on saying we believe and they
will not be tested! But We did test those before them and Allah will
certainly know those who are true from those wh
To Joel, the 1 hr mosque away from your comfort zone will all be worth the effort, every step on the ground has significance.
To Harry, just wait for sometime for the Islamic countries to blossom, when all Muslims in this planet will re-energize themselves (that includes me Insha-Allah), progress may just be beyond words.
To all other non-Muslims, your effort to visit this site is worth enough, you did have a piece of light that you wanted (Insha-Allah), remember that Islam is the religion for all and not only that it is a way of life...thanks, surely you will realize in the end that your curiousity has made you a point advantage...
To All bros and sisses who shared their thoughts on this, SHUKRAN Banyak! I really loved your inputs, just so wonderful and inspiring plus the fact that today is Jumaah, Masha-Allah. As one brother put it, "See you in Jannah!"
Allah bliss you. you did very very good job in writting down the feeling of Al_Quran's reader in English words. not only that, anyone who read the Quran feel that you talked from Experience that many of us fail to put in words. thank you very very much brother.
I'm like to thank u for giving me this wonderful (The New World (of the Quran) that awaits yo)
Pease send more. I like to read and gain knowledge.
Yes, for sure, Qura'n is the route Which takes us to our Creator. Such way! the way that we don't and we can't find in this world or any other world that ALLAH(Subhana'u wa Ta'ala)created.
I,myself, feel so deepely attracted to the Qur'an. Every time, I start to read IT,I get to understand more and more the great meanning of ALLAH Wisdom,of His Fitra,of His Knowledge,of His Mercy, etc............and of His Unity.
I cry of happiness, and thank ALLAH,for having chosing me amoungest a lot of Muslimin and Mu'minin, Insha'a ALLAH.
I am so thirsty of ALLAH Knowledge,so much, that, I love people(and all the individuals in this world,for this matter) who know HIM truthfully, with their brain and their heart. And, I,like them to talk to me or send me e-mails(when, they are free of course)about any subject of our deen.

One amazing uniqueness of the Holy Qur'an is that even if you don't understand Arabic, it has a way of touching your heart like nothing else does when you hear it recited by a Qaree or when you recite yourself. It has a way of bringing tranquility to your heart no matter how sorrowful you might have been and it has a way of keeping you from evil even if you don't get the warning in Arabic. May Allah (SWT) let the Qur'an be an evidence for us and not against us on the day of judgement.
"The similitude of Jesus before Allah is that of
He created him from dust,
then said to him: "Be!": and he was."
Islamic people get to heaven, as do other people, if and when the Almighty decrees it so. I bet you and I can agree on this even though Islamic people abhor betting.
anyway, Joel, if you can go to the Quran http://islamicity.com/mosque/SURAI.HTM
right here on Islamicity.
if you can't do that, then pray for guidance and shelter from evil. and then decide whether or not it is worth it to you to take the long hike (assuming no one will drive you) to the nearest mosque. try to go on a friday- mid-day.
this is the most important time for Muslims to gather toghether to pray and to learn together.
oh, and a brief comment to you Jesus-worshipping Christians-
please stop hurling verses at us. most Muslims are well aware of your beliefs, they are in the Qur'an. being a former Christian, although i never worshipped Jesus (peace and blesssings of Allah swt be upon him), i must say that your utter disreguard for Muslim intellect is staggering. Seeing as how i cannot name a Christian that reads their Bible even once a day or even prays once a day, and i know quite a few.
please stop spitting out the phrases you've been taught to spit out and take a look at what's in your life...
look reaaaaaly close...
uh-huh... (you've got one HUGE plank in your eye)
Jesus was who he said he was, the prophetic son of man who accomplished great wonders by God's hand.
Look around at the Jesus-worshipping Christians.
there is a test in the Bible that is given to determine false prophets.
the test : look at the prophet's followers and to see if they are immoral and hypocritical overall. if so, then the prophet is false; true prophets have God-fearing followers do they not?
the fabricated version of Jesus (peace and blessings of Allah swt be upon the real one) that claims to be god incarnate is worshipped by about two billion oft-sinning (clearly not God-fearing) hypocrites, i should know i used to be one, although i rejected Christianity once i learned that i was old enough to begin learning why i was to worship a man as if he were god.
=Allah swt has given all his slaves an unwavering hatred of evil and the shaitan, and idolotry is the most disgusting sin in my opinion=
so i looked around breifly, Alhammdulillah, for those who followed in the real Jesus' footsteps.
i found Islam. I found the Qur'an, and by about midway through surah 5 ( if i remember correctly) i found the ayah saying something along the lines of '' In this book I have not eliminated a verse without substituting its better or its likeness '' i knew that was from God, the real God.
Back to the Biblical test - Muhammad and his followers (peace and blessings of Allah swt be upon him)are truly good God-fearing folk.
therefore, Muhammad was a true prophet... and i have found nothing but truthful support since.

VERY WELL SAID SISTER MONTANA.
I AM PROUD OF YOU.
When you're stripped of your dignity and the last of the very thing that makes you human. When you watch the IDF strip your dad naked and make him walk on all four in front of an audience. When you watch your loved ones gunned down in open season, left to bleed to death because the Ambulance driver himself is fired at or detained, when you have nothing else left to fight ruthless occupiers who are (just about all of them) militants armed to the teeth -including the settlers, what would you do? They themselves established the state through terror (look up Deer Yaseen, look up the Irgun and the Stern and other early terror Zionist gangs,) and continue to butcher them every day; the government/corporation-controlled media is sure to keep you in the dark, content and happy.
Christian Zionists, and you're probably one of them, turn a deaf ear and blind eye to what the Israelis do every day, and pledge unwavering allegiance to them as if when Jesus comes back he'll thank you all for supporting the very people who turned him over to the Romans. Boy, you're so gullible (here, I want you to be really saved: www.whtt.org.) What would Jesus do if he would watch these State terrorists do what they're best at every day? WWJD?
I read some of the comments and I felt really hurt by the agressive tone of a christian brother and the sarcasm of the one saying there were no jetfighters in our Prophets (sas) time...
In that time there was also nobody who knew that the stars and planets are still drifting apart after the initial 'big bang' - yet exactly that fact is being mentioned in the HOly Qur'an. Nobody in that time had the knwoledge to know about the development of a foetus in its mothers whomb, yet the Holy Qur'an discribes it in a manner that made a major obstitritian say "I wish I could use those terms in my profession" and "This discribes the foetal evolution exactly to the day".
If the author compares an experience described in the Holy Qur'an to one that we know today, what is there to critisize about?
The "Western" world pretends to be so developped and "pluralistic", "tolerant" ... Yet some of the critics they have about Islam are not even close to that... I am often ashamed of being European. But alhamdolillah, at least Allah (swt) had leas me into Islam!
Surah 6 Verse 125
And whomsoever it is Allahs will to guide, He expandeth his bossom unto the Surrender (Islam), and whomsoever it is His will to send astray, He maketh his bossom close and narrow as if he where engaged in sheer ascent. Thus Allah layeth ignominy upon those who believe not.
JET FIGHTER PILOT EXPERIENCE ?
Jet fighter pilot does not exist during prophet pbuh time....

There are many Australians that have said "Muslims hate each other, so why should we even like them"...sorry to say this...but i agree with them.
I have never discriminated against any sect, sunni, alawy, shiaa or catholic - we all believe in the one god and should not hate each other.
Does the Quaran mention anything about this subject?
Subhanallah, this is a well-written eye-opening
article - a thought provoking and captivating one.
May Allah, the Omniscient, the Omnipresent and the Omnipotent bless the mu'min authors of this

I read your Bible but Quran is the best and it is from the magnificient and merciful creator.
Give yourself a chance. Read Quran, Bible and Science by Dr. Maurice Bucille then let me know
The Quran Is Something Way Beyond The Human Mind Can Think Of its a souce of guidence a hope of how to be a good person and souce of optimism a source of imagination of the next life answers all out questions about what is the meaning the purpose of life which many people know not. Its also so beautiful but many know how to read arabic but dont understand it which many people in my opinion turn away from Allah swt and the teachings of Muhammed pbuh i pray Allah swt forgives us all. Another miracle in the quran is that some things have been said like the defeated Roman army to whats in the heavens and earth and there still things to be discovered the mircales of the quran will never end till the day of Judgement. I would encouage any muslim or non-muslim to purchase a copy in their own language if they understand arabic thats fine but if they dont. I would recommend read 5 mins a night maybe 2 or 3 verses a night muslim or non-muslim. I could go on and on about the content of the quran keep comming great stories and a place to go something to do something to look forward to something to be happy about something to share with your friends and family and also non-muslims. If you asked a the normal muslim who has little faith ask them i maybe wrong may Allah swt forgive me what your opinion on the Quran? they say great great book then they dont know a story in it. You ask me 1 in a trillion they say here. Jazakullaker!
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
