Now that you have a copy of thisEnglish transalation of the Quran we humbly request you to do the following:When you hear someone say something about what is mentioned in theQuran;1)
Ask for an exact reference in the form of Surah (chapter) and versenumber 2)
Try to approach the Quran with an open mind – Don’t just rely onthe so called “expert” opinions you may have heard. Form your own opinion3)
Read a few verses before and after the specific verse so as to get anidea of the context of what is being said and why4)
If you are not sure of the meaning, ask someone who knows – wewill be glad to answer any questions. Just as you would go to aChristian to ask questions about Christianity or a Jew to ask aboutJudaism or a Pandit to ask about Hinduism, why not do the samewhen it comes to the Quran, Islam or Muslims?
