You don't have to read Mein Kampf to have an opinion about Nazism.

If they burn a book, have no worries.

The book will feel NO pain so neither should you! True destruction of the Qur'an cannot be done with fire; it is destroyed when we fail to remember & practice its lessons in our daily lives. If this occurs, then it is ANOTHER fire that you should truly be concerned about!

Understanding the knowledge and wisdom of the Qur'an is by far, higher than memorizing.

I hope to see the two great religions, Islam and Christianity, hand-in-hand, embracing each other. Then the Torah and the Bible and the Qur’an will become books supporting one another being read everywhere, and respected by every nation … [I am] looking forward to seeing Muslims read the Torah and the Bible.

This is the beauty of the Qur'an: it asks you to reflect and reason, and not to worship the sun or moon but the One who has created everything. The Qur'an asks man to reflect upon the sun and moon and God's creation in general.

I did not come into contact with any Muslim before I embraced Islam.

I read the Qur'an first and realized no person is perfect, Islam is perfect, and if we imitate the conduct of the Holy Prophet... we will be successful.

Recitation of the Qur'an without contemplation and thought is futile.

Khashyah (fear) is to fear Allah until His fear comes between you and your sins - that is true khashyah. And Dhikr (remembrance) is to obey Allah so whoever obeys Him has indeed remembered Him, and whoever does not obey Him is not a dhakir - even if he makes abundant tasbih (glorification) and recites much of Qur'an.

The one from among the Muslims who recites the Qur'an but in the end finds his way to hell, is considerd to be among those that have taken the word of Allah in jest.

The Qur'an does not ask for human perfection, but rather asks that we persevere in striving for self-improvement and that we never become complacent or despondent about our progress.

According to Muslim teachings, God first revealed His word in the Holy Qur'an to the prophet, Muhammad, during the month of Ramadan. That word has guided billions of believers across the centuries, and those believers built a culture of learning and literature and science.

I am the dust on the path of Muhammad, the Chosen One.

Why, in the scriptures of the Bible and Holy Qur'an, did God create man first? I believe that we are in the genesis or the beginning or the birth of a new world order, so then man and woman have to be made new again.

When one is under pressure, one may lie in order to protect the religion, this is taught in the Qur'an.

The word 'jihad' has nowhere been used in the Qur'an to mean war in the sense of launching an offensive. It is used rather to mean 'struggle'. the action most consistently called for in the Qur'an is the exercise of patience. (p. 7-8)

We are free to burn the Qur’an or any other book, and to criticize Muhammad or any other human being. Let no one forget it.

Allah gave the Qur'an to a very special man, who passed it on to us, for the rest of all our days.

The Bible's blind, the Torah's deaf, the Qur'an is mute;

if you burned them all together you'd get close to the truth.

In fact, for a period stretching over seven hundred years, the international language of science was Arabic.

The very first lesson that I learnt from the Qur'an was the message of unity and peace.

For one, the Qur'an is considered by Muslims to consist entirely of words spoken by Allah himself.

There is an issue about the discrimination provisions because the Qur'an does say that women should have half the share of men. Again, in the seventh century perhaps that kind of made sense, but in the twenty-first it very often doesn't. But in the arbitration contract that won't arise. An inheritance dispute might arise after someone dies but the two sides have to come together consensually.

During the fast of Ramadan, our minds stayed on the worship of Allah and stayed on the remembrance of the great gift to humanity of the Qur'an must mean then that following that sacredness of the Qur'an should be our actions in accord with what the Qur'an and Allah demands of the believer especially during this Sacred Month.

The Qur'an says speak not of those who are slain in the way of God as "dead," or die in the way of Allah as "dead," "they are alive, but you perceive not."

The Qur'an says that every soul must taste of death.

None of us can escape that, but for you there is no such thing as 'death'.

This is what The Qur'an and the Bible have been prophesying - the end of a world of evil and injustice: We are at that time, now.

Once you're in a kind of revealed religious tradition, you wind up having to explain how the things said about God in the Bible or the Qur'an or whatever religious text you're dealing with, why these statements are true.
