Al-Qur’an is the book of scripture, the book of revelation that guides the thinking, feelings, and actions of every believing Muslim on the planet earth. It literally means ‘A Reading’ and ‘A Proclamation.’
The Qur’an is inspiration that was revealed to Prophet Muhammad over 1,400 years ago and the Qur’an is still inspiring millions today.
The Qur’an gives guidance specifically and majestically designed for human beings. As such, it speaks to our intellect, our emotions, our material appetites and concerns, our relationship with each other and our environment.
Its goal is not to turn human beings into unnatural spiritual beings or into unnatural materialistic “animals,” but to help us preserve the natural human qualities that allow us to fulfill the potential and qualities that Allah put in the human so that he can live a life with the peace that only Allah can give to us.
