Seven Reasons to Read the Glorious Qur’an

From: www.islamweb.net

Inimitable

It dares you to disprove it. How? It says that humans cannot write a book like this even if they pooled all their resources together and got help also from the spirits. The Qur’an said this fourteen hundred years ago and yet no one has been able to disprove it. Billions of books have been written-but not another one like the Qur’an.

Incorruptible

It is the only religious sacred writing that has been in circulation for such a long time and yet remains as pure as it was in the beginning. The Qur’an was kept intact. Nothing was added to it; nothing was changed in it; and nothing was taken away from it ever since its revelation was completed 1400 hundred years ago.

Unsurpassable

The Qur’an is God’s final revelation to humankind. God revealed the Torah to Moses, the Psalms to David, the Gospel to Jesus, and finally the Qur’an to Muhammad. Peace be upon them all. No other book will come from God to surpass His final revelation.

Indisputable

The Qur’an withstands the test of time and scrutiny. No one can dispute the truth of this book. It speaks about past history and turns out right. It speaks about the future in prophecies and it turns out right. It mentions details of physical phenomena which were not known to people at the time; yet later scientific discoveries prove that the Qur’an was right all along. Every other book needs to be revised to accord with modern knowledge. The Qur’an alone is never contradicted by a newly discovered scientific fact.

Your Roadmap for Life and Afterlife

The Qur’an is the best guidebook on how to structure your life. No other book presents such a comprehensive system involving all aspects of human life and endeavor. The Qur’an also points out the way to secure everlasting happiness in the afterlife. It is your roadmap showing how to get to Paradise.

God’s Gift of Guidance

God has not left you alone. You were made for a reason. God tells you why he made you, what he demands from you and what he has in store for you. If you operate a machine contrary to it’s manufacturer’s specification you will ruin that machine. What about you? Do you have an owner’s manual for yourself? The Qur’an is from the Divine Manual your Maker. It is a gift for you to make sure you function for success, lest you fail to function.

It is a healing from God. It satisfies the soul, and cleans the heart. It removes doubts and brings peace.

Your Calling Card to Communicate with your Lord

Humans are social creatures. We love to communicate with the other intelligent life. The Qur’an tells us how to communicate with the source of all intelligence and the source of all life-the One God. The Qur’an, tells us who God is, by what name we should address Him, and the way in which to communicate with Him.

Are these not seven sufficient points for reading the Qur’an?

Reasons to Follow Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord

1) Jesus Christ is God's Son
2) Jesus Christ, the God Man chose to cast aside his kingly position and was born as a human being, lived, betrayed, crucified, buried, resurrected, is seated in Heaven awaiting the return of his saints in heaven.
3) Jesus Christ is the savior and redeemer of the human race, he is the creator and sustainer of the universe, though rejected and killed, the grave could not hold him. Unlike the grave of Buddah or Muhammed, the grave of Jesus Christ is empty. For you see he is alive and reigns and waits for his beloved in heaven.
4) Unlike the religions of the world, Christianity is not a religion - it is a living and abiding relationship with the king of the universe. How does this happen? He places a desire to know him in your heart. You search for him with all your heart and he accepts you and forgives you of all your sin - past, present, and future. He places a desire in your heart to read and study His Word the Bible. He places a desire to meet with other pilgrims who have been found by him. With these others (in a church or in a special study) you grow to know him and love him more. You begin to realize that you have been saved from the evil of this present age and that he has saved you from this present age and that this is a free gift - a gift that you have not earned nor could you possibly earn it. Because of his goodness and grace he has chosen to save you and draw you to himself and make you a new creation. Indeed, this is a mystery.

Dear Bill:
We Muslims love Jesus as a great prophet. We love his message which is love. People like you have strong bleif in him as God are entitled to their beleif. As Muslims we try to find how we can fill the earth with the love of jesus and his teachings so we all can enjoy peace and Justices. We all can pave the way for his kingdom in earth. He will come back hopefully in our generation he will tell us who is he. At least both of us share in love to him and his great humanistic message.
Thank you,
Maged
