QURAN: All we need
Cont’d from page 2
Those who have rejected the Quran’s proof when it came to them, have also rejected an Honorable book. No falsehood could enter it, in the past or in the future; a revelation from a Most Wise, Praiseworthy. [41:41-2]
And God tells us within the Quran exactly what the proof is. It remained hidden for 1400 years but it was always there, in Sura 74: The Hidden Secret.
Over it is nineteen. We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, “What did God mean by this allegory?” God thus
sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people. [74:30-31]
Upon reflection it’s easy to reaffirm that the Quran is the source of our guidance; that it’s from God and that we should study it carefully, recognizing and appreciating God’s teachings therein.
This Quran could not possibly be authored by other than God. It confirms all previous messages, and provides a fully detailed scripture. It is infallible, for it comes from the Lord of the universe. [10:37]
Note: More insight on the subject can be found in Appendix
All You Need For Salvation” and in Appendix 20 “Quran:
Unlike Any Other Book” in Dr. Rashad Khalifa’s English
translation of the Quran, 1989,

Accept my sincere congratulations at developing this site.... more power to you... it is such a relief to see the "real" spirit of Islam reflected in this site which is missing from the hearts and behavior of Muslims today.... we have to do everything possible to educate the Muslims and non-Muslims about what Islam means and what it stands for as the Muslims of today are drifting away from the spirit of the religion and concentrating only on the physical appearance.
Sincere congratulations and may Allah give you more strength to continue on this path.
I just wanted to express my joy in reading your well-grounded webs on the hadith. I thought I was the only one who thought they (hadith) were the source of 'the decline of rational' in Islam. I was so happy to read educated essays on these gross books. Thanks again, if you have any mailing lists, put me on.
