A detailed explanation of things about the quran and deen of islam  
 
 
 
The language barrier between God and mankind  
 
It is very important for mankind to become aware of the fact that there is a language problem between God and human beings. It is because God knows everything he needs to know about his plan and purpose for creating his universe and mankind but a human is born as a baby not knowing anything at all. The question that faces God and human beings is, how can God make humanity understand what he wants of them and how can mankind try to make sense of what God says to ensure they have understood the message of God properly before they act upon it faithfully so that plan and purpose of God could become fulfilled? People evolved their human language gradually over a very long period of time and the human babies still take years to learn their human language through their direct interaction with things and with each other in this environment called the world or the universe. The main point in this respect to realise is that God could not tell humanity anything at all in human language till people had invented and developed a human language. Even after having inventing and developed human language people could still not understand message of God till people developed a mechanism whereby they could make sense of what God intended to convey. It is because people can only know what they communicate to each other because they interact with each other but human beings do not interact with God at all as they do with each other so they could not understand message of God unless they developed a mechanism for understanding the message of God in their language. In other words God even if he uses a human language to communicate his message to them still will be conveying his own thoughts not human thoughts, so he will be using same words but not the very same meanings of words as people mean for each other when they talk to each other. Moreover people cannot know words they have not invented yet nor the meanings of words which they have not realised yet because they have not yet arrived at that stage of learning and knowing things. So God when he reveals his message become limited by what people at the time know. This makes very difficult for mankind to see point of view of God about things ie they cannot put themselves in shoes of God. This is why unless there is found a way around this difficulty the language barrier between God and humanity cannot be broken down. This is where my work on the Quran can be found very helpful by mankind because it begins from this point. It shows limits of philosophers and scientists as well as of people who claim to know deen of Islam regardless they claim to be Muslims or nonMuslims.  
 
The problem of communication between God and human beings could be understood through realising the situation of a highly educated father with his newly born child. How can such a father convey his message to his newly born child? Father has to understand how his baby understands things and try to convey his thoughts to baby using baby language because baby does not know any other language. For conveying a highly complex and sophisticated message in baby language father has to wait till baby develops and grows to the stage where at he could make sense of message of his father in some way. This is why God had to give people time to develop and grow in knowledge before they could be sent his message. This is why human beings were given brains and senses as well as bodies and things to interact with in this universe in order to learn things just like we human beings give our children toys to play with and learn from their interaction with toys. The other main question people must ask themselves is why God created people as babies instead of fully knowledgeable grown up people? It is because God is a living being so as a living being he had the urge to express himself and to express himself he could only use his power of creativity so he ended up creating his creation and sending his revelation for human beings because he wanted someone with ability to appreciate his creativity out of choice and that is why he gave mankind ability to learn things by themselves so that interference from God remained to a bear necessity otherwise human beings could not appreciate God freely as too much intervention by God could undermine his plan and purpose for creating mankind. This is why message of God is the way it is. It is not a huge book containing detail of everything because human beings could not carry around a huge book or read it due to their very limited life span. This is why God had to do his best for sending people his message and people had to do their best to make sense of whatever they are given by God as his message. So it is a compromise between the best God could do and the best mankind could do. The idea that God can do anything because he has the power to do so therefore he has done this and that and the other is a nonsense. It is because no matter who does anything one is limited by one’s own plan and purpose. If one does not follow through one’s plan in order to fulfil one’s purpose than all falls apart and one fails in one’s objectivity. This is why even though God is powerful he cannot do things which ruin his plan and purpose. This is why a lot of things people say about God or attribute to God are nothing more than their self invented nonsense because it does not take into account plan and purpose fo9 God in context of real world realities. This nonsense is called make beliefs or different versions of religion and secularism. All this will be explained in detail as we go along and things will start making sense to those who wish to learn.  
 
The next thing one has to ask oneself is, how can human beings overcome the language barrier between God and human beings? Before God could communicate his message to people they had to have a language in which God could communicate to them his thoughts. Since a human language is just words and meanings the question is, where did the words and their meanings come from? To understand the answer of this question one has to observe creation and see what God has brought about in this world. Long before he created people he created other things. He started with nonliving things and from that he brought forth or evolved living things and from the living things he brought about or evolved human beings. God created things and things were given certain properties by God for his plan and purpose. This is why we can see nonliving things are fully programmed but living things are partly programmed though some more than the others. The least programmed creatures are human beings who needed guidance of God to give them basis for their future development and progress. This is why people are created to self program themselves by way of explorations and discoveries with a little bit of guidance from God that gives them the basis or foundation to develop and grow from where they are ie from their natural state or stage of existence as human beings. Human beings have been endowed with great potential for development by God in order to be capable of serving his intended plan and purpose. The plan and purpose of God will become obvious when humanity studies the message in the Quran in detail. As for knowledge people learn things by observing and copying already programmed things as to what they do and how they do it and that way they learn how things interact with each other and fit in with each other which helps human beings develop rationally by reasoning things that are self evident as to how they are interlinked or interconnected or fit in with each other. This is how from obvious world people can become capable of looking into hidden realities in the real world and deduce things rationally and that way arrive at the right conclusions about things.  
 
It should be clear to a person that unless people had a language and they developed it to a stage where at God could send his message to them they could not benefit from the revelation of God this is why God had to wait till people evolved from animal stage to human stage of existence. However even then God had to wait till people could make proper sense of his message in order to benefit from it. This is like some grown up person instils in mind of a young child some message to remember which can only make sense to the child when he has grown up and has reached the stage of knowledge required for its proper understanding. This is why human progress has been very slow due to interaction between people and other living and nonliving things as well as between people themselves. People have real problem in trying to make proper sense of message of God because it takes them a lot of time to learn sense of making proper sense of things provided they have had a deep and wide life experience about things about which message of God talks. If not then such people are little better than animals who have not yet developed to stage of humanity. This is why knowing how words came about and how they got their meanings becomes of vital importance to know because without knowing that mechanism people cannot develop a possible vocabulary which could introduce them to meanings of words which are used by God therefore people cannot develop a proper context of message of God without knowing such meanings of words used in the message of God. Unless human beings come to this stage of awareness about problem of language between God and mankind this problem cannot be solved. This shows how God is limited by being a God and how humanity is limited by being human beings in context of use of language. Since people cannot know anything beyond their time of development and progress and God talks about realities of things as they are so there is a huge gap between knowledge of God and knowledge of people. This is why people cannot be sure what the message of God actually means unless they come to know some basic rules of understanding the text of the message of God. Once they come to know the rules then they can be reasonably sure about understanding the message of God properly just like knowing formulas for mathematical expressions for solving the mathematical problems. Though people talk about detail of message of God but no matter how detailed message of God is it is still up to people to make proper sense of it and different people need different amount of detail for understanding it properly. Moreover God can only detail message up to a stage otherwise that will interfere with God given freedom of humanity due to God having a plan and an purpose for his creation that stops God from over doing things which could ruin his own plan and purpose for things. However some people being more able to make proper sense of message of God can detail his message for others to help them understand the message of God as it ought to be understood, though most people only try to confuse each other more and more due to being ignorant or illiterate or uneducated or untrained or unskilled or being unable to think properly themselves.  
 
The idea of human language is of such importance to understand that without it even an atheist is unable to answer to himself any serious questions about existence of God in a logically consistent way. For example if one asks oneself is there a God, one cannot say there is no God because one cannot prove so no matter how hard one tries. Moreover it is impossible to prove a negative. This is why the real question becomes if there is a God then what is the proof? This question can only be answered by those who know the answer by saying God does exist and the proof is his creation and his revelation. However the question then becomes how do the creation and the revelation prove existence of God to mankind? They prove existence of God to mankind by people studying them both in detail in light of each other. This is where in comes idea of research and exploration and discovery. This is why people who are not interested in idea of studying things in depth and in width cannot know anything much about anything be it the universe or God or his revelation. In order to study the universe people must learn language to the best of their God given abilities. Likewise in order to make sense of revelation of God they must learn language of message of God which is very different from what people use with each other for communicating their ideas to each other. This is why they need to develop a dictionary that could help them understand message of God. So far all dictionaries written by people are only collection of some words that are brought about by people and their meanings used by people. This is not sufficient for understanding of message of God by people. So people who do not understand this problem of language between God and mankind their opinions are nothing more than their wishful thoughts that have no basis in reality. So those who dismiss the idea of existence of God unless they can explain logically consistently how they came to their conclusion of nonexistence of God they are simply talking nonsense. It is because they have no choice but to accept possibility of existence of God but if one accepts the possibility of existence of God then on ends up with a huge problem on one’s hands which is one has to explain reason for creation and revelation of God in light of what mankind can clearly observe in this real world with their own senses. Not only that but one also has to explain how God could communicate his message to mankind in this world the way it exists and ensure his message was understood by mankind properly if they chose to study it properly. So people who have no idea about such important questions and their relationship to each other whatever they say about God cannot be taken just on its face value. It is because if people cannot find a way or accept it whereby God could communicate his message to people then their acceptance of possibility of existence of God falls flat on its face due to break down in their logical consistency in their explanation, therefore whatever such people say about God cannot be trusted. All this will be discussed in great detail as things develop in this study of the Quranic message.  
 
The difference between facts, theories and laws.  
 
First of all words fact and theory both have various meanings which depend upon the context of their use or purpose. However in one respect facts are objects or things that are detectable with human senses either directly or with help of instruments ie real world realities are facts be they within our own reach or not. In this context theory means explanation that helps make sense of the things or facts or real world realities or objects. In the same context laws are those observed realities which repeatedly happen the same way or are made to happen the same way. It is a matter of if, then and always. Law means a way of doing something or a way of making something happen the same way. For example, if water is poured on the ground then it will flow downhill due to gravity. Since this will happen always therefore we can take it as a rule. If anything consumable is put in the fire then it will burn. Since this will happen always therefore we can take it as a rule.  
 
Coming to theory of evolution. It is not a fact in the sense explained above because it is not a real world reality or an object but an explanation of some observed realities or objects. Whether this explanation is complete or incomplete depends upon facts or objects used in the explanation. The more the number of facts there are the better the explanation of the facts is because the increased quantity of things in the sample helps understand something better just like quality control sampling. The higher the sampling frequency the more likely it is that faulty goods will be caught and less likely that faulty goods will escape detection.  
 
Since for Godless explanation of evolution samples so far collected or are available are not sufficient in numbers therefore it is not as good an explanation as is necessary or needed therefore to take it as a something water tight is not right. There are far too many gaps between things which clearly show they do not transform into each other smoothly enough rather they need more and more intermediary things to go between them. This shows steps or breaks or irregularities which lend support to God based idea of evolution rather than the Godless based idea of evolution. For example, big bang seems to be a controlled inflation of the universe or expansion of the time and space for serving some purpose rather than a random explosion which could have led to chaos instead of the fully functioning universe.  
 
As for evolution based upon divine intervention there is more than sufficient evidence. For example, so many variations in each and every kind of things in ways that cannot be explained any other way than external intervention due to gaps between species of things. More than that the origin of things which did not exist is better explained that way only. That is, a thing which we accept has come into existence had to have a parent or originator otherwise it could not come into being. I am here due to my parents and the chain goes back but it has to stop at some point in time. If this does not stop then that leads us into infinity which is impossible for things that come into existence because before a child thing could come into existence its parent must first have to be there and if parents of parents are not there then how could their children come into existence? This being the case we have no choice but to except that ultimately there is something there which was always there which did not need a creator which brought the non-existing thing or things into being eg the universe and things in it. Since things need to be functional that come about otherwise they cannot survive this means they need designing and planning because allowing things to happen randomly is not going to produce any results regardless of length of time. You can break a glass bottle and let the pieces lie on the ground they will never become a bottle again regardless how long they are left lying there. This is why saying Godless evolution is a fact is wrong. It is not only about first cause but planning and designing as well. Unless there is some planning and designing involved in a project just a random knock or cause does not turn something into a perfect working model. If we say matter or energy is ever existing and has ability of intelligent designing then we are replacing one thing with another ie God for identical qualities of matter so where is sense in that? If God evolved things it still needs a lot of explanation eg what was purpose of God for creating things? How did he create them? How do they work to fulfill his objective? Etc etc. Idea of God can only be eliminated once we have better explanation than the one offered by the allegedly revealed scripture. However first we need to learn enough to understand this scripture that is said to be from God ie the Quran.  
 
I blame our human ignorance for lack of our understanding of the allegedly divine scripture because I have my reasons to believe so. For example, to begin with we humans depend upon external physical realities for learning by interacting with them directly. It is because our minds create images of things or models which we see. As things are or they interact with each other we try to figure them out. Through this learning process we learn simple reasoning which becomes more and more complex and sophisticated as we learn more and more about things. This is why those who have wider and deeper life experiences have better understanding of things than those who have narrow and shallow life experiences. This is why people with wider and deeper life experiences can easily see logical connections and disconnections between things. This helps people to see what goes together and what does not. This is how we gradually become rational thinkers. However to think about abstracts is still another world to learn about and anyone who is not good at learning reasoning about real world realities certainly cannot be good in learning about abstract concepts because in that case one has to rely entirely upon reasoning to try and understand things.  
 
Let me try and explain this in another way. Let say our bike has broken down and we need to repair it. Since bike is basically a physical thing with almost all parts visible to us we can easily find most of the faults in it just by physical visual examination of it which involves simple reasoning. The same cannot be said about our tv set when that breaks down. This time there are many more parts involved and a lot of things in it involve electricity which means electrons are not visible to us to see where they are going and how the fault is preventing them from working. It is easy for a mother to put on anti septic cream when her child slightly injures himself while playing in the playground, however if a person has internal pain due to something gone wrong inside then that cannot be easily diagnosed due to being invisible to the eye. So one has to arrive at a conclusion by reasoning things out, so we can see how visible things help us learn about invisible things. Therefore first stage of learning is to learn about what is visible and within our reach. Without first going through this stage of reasoning we cannot develop to go to the next stage of process of learning reasoning.  
 
This is why just because we have managed to understand a little bit about real world realities it does not mean we can understand the scripture attributed to God. That is because to understand the scripture people need to especially prepare themselves as it needs a higher stage of learning reasoning by human beings. That is because it is word of God but in human language and the problem is in decoding it accordingly.  
 
Why do we need higher stage of learning reasoning to understand the scripture? It is because without scripture there is nothing to tell us with reasonable certainty regarding origin of the universe and ourselves, how things came to be what they are, what is purpose of all this and how things are supposed to work to fulfill any purpose if there is one? Such things are beyond our senses that is why the need for guidance. However just because we can read a scripture does not mean we can understand it properly or we can follow it faithfully. This needs knowledge about things that a scripture talks about otherwise we cannot understand it. What sense can a baby get when a politician starts talking to him about politics? Absolutely none. Since scripture is mainly for peace and harmony between people at its basic level so that they could then together concentrate on higher objectives rather than fighting with each other and losing the sight of higher goals therefore it needs full attention for our proper understanding of it to benefit from it.  
 
This is why we cannot be right in dismissing things out of hand till we have done our bit properly regarding the scripture. Divine scriptures were not needed if we were already fully programmed like robots. Scriptures are needed because we have been programmed a bit and a bit we must program ourselves like self learning robots. In short God has designed us to find out God but by our own sense of creativity and effort that is why we must discover the scripture and the creation for ourselves.  
 
As for the objective of deen of Islam, it is to fulfill the purpose for which Allah has created this universe and mankind in it. I have yet to explain in detail what that purpose is or why Allah bothered to create the universe and us human beings in it. So anyone interested in detail study of the scripture should carry on reading what I am going to explain about it so that one could come to know it.  
 
Just to help people keep in mind, Allah created things because he being a living being decided to express his existence and that he did by way of creation and revelation. Why revelation? Because he wanted to create a creature called human with a limited free will so that it could appreciate his existence and ability of creativity out of choice with a little helping hand from God himself through his guidance. This means deen of Islam is not something that is fully worked out set of instructions like a flow chart for each and every person rather it only gives guidelines to use for figuring out rest of it by ourselves in light of those guidelines and real world realities. This si the main reason for people consulting each other regarding matters of deen of Islam.  
 
To appreciate God to that degree humanity has to reach a level of knowledge all by itself to be able to understand the scripture properly because it has been created knowing nothing at all but with brains and senses and bodies that can help it achieve that objective with help of God's revelation and creation by interacting with them.  
 
This is the starting point of deen of Islam ie the purpose why God created things including human beings and why human beings have been left on their own by God to learn things by themselves through direct interaction with things after being created knowing nothing at all. This is why God advises a way of life for mankind that could help them fulfill the purpose for which God created human beings.  
 
What is deen of Islam? It is a way of life which if understood properly and followed faithfully by mankind can lead them to blissful, dignified and secure life in this world and any effort by anyone made in that direction will be rewarded both in this life as well as in the life to come. Any people who will reject and oppose that way of life will end up in painful suffering in this life by hands of each other as well as in hereafter because whatever way of life people will invent and adopt by themselves will never lead them to blissful, dignified and secure existence instead it will always lead them into conflicts and wars with each other because no way of life people will ever be able to invent and follow that could be free of concept of personal gains at the expense of each other. This is why deen of Islam will take over humanity in due course completely ie after a lot of conflicts and fights with each other people will gradually come to realise that they have no way of life to live by other than the way of life whereby they could live with each other as a united, peaceful, progressive and prosper human community ie an ummah.  
 
What is the way of life about whereby Allah wants people to live? It is about living for each other and not living at the expense of each other. It is because personal vested interests at the expense of each other lead people into all sorts of harmful and destructive divisions and conflicts with each other sooner or later. That is how comes about rivalry and animosity which leads to hatred between people that turns into conflicts which lead to unending wars between people.  
 
Why must people live for each other? It is because they have been created to depend upon each other. Some have been created with much more advantages as compared to others only to work together as one single human family ie they have been created for purpose of complementing each other and not for taking undue advantages of each other. Why must anyone work for anyone else instead of oneself? It is because all human beings belong to God and everything also belongs to God so all things must be used according to his guidance so that his purpose could become fulfilled. If people will not do so then because all people are not created equal therefore those better off will try and take undue advantage of the disadvantaged and so the conflicts will start which cannot be ended till people do what God says ie use his provisions according to his wishes to ensure well being of all people. This is why in deen of Islam there is no right for anyone to rule over others or to buy or sell anything because nothing belongs to anyone to do so. People have right of use of things from God but only if they use them according to guidance of God not otherwise. This is why there is no ruling class or money lending business elite or priestly class in actual deen of Islam. All these are tricks and mechanisms for using masses abusively by cleverest among them.  
 
The objective of deen of Islam is very clear which is to unite mankind for their own good to ensure well being of mankind. Now when you want to unite people you not only need goals and guidelines but a program as well. This is why the Quran not only gives a program for accomplishing the stated goals but also guidelines for formation of a constitution and laws to go with it so that people could organise and regulate themselves as a proper human community according to them for accomplishing the stated objectives. This is why goals, guidelines, program, constitution and laws all have to be consistent with each other so that the whole thing could work smoothly like a machine. This is what deen of Islam basically is in a nut shell.  
 
All human invented ideologies are based upon pyramid scheme for power through manpower or wealth or fooling people in the name of God through various versions of religion or secularism which present a very odd and twisted concept about God over which people waste a lot of time in arguing with each other endlessly as is very much obvious from the debates on various discussion forums.  
 
 
The difference between deen of Islam and mazhab  
 
To understand the Quran one has to know the difference between the mazhab and deen of Islam and the way to understand the Quran properly. Why? Because till people realise what mazhab is and why it is what it is they cannot have the idea of what deen of Islam is and why it is what it is.  
 
Mazhab is basically result of natural human thought processor. As we know we human beings are born not knowing anything about the real world and its realities. All we are born with is brain and senses and body to make sense of the world in which we are born and things in it including ourselves. In my writings I explain why God has created us the way he did or the way we are. When we start struggling in this word from our births till our deaths we find out many things about this world that we knew nothing at all about. All this leads some of us who have paid enough attention to things to question our origin and purpose and functioning etc etc. This is where at we get stuck because we cannot go any further from here. This is human thought and that is called mazhab=religion ie we think there has to be a creator of all this we see before us. Whether there actually is a creator or not we have no way to find out for sure so we turn to various practices to find out the best we can. This is what we call spiritualism. As people want to know if there is a God or not and if there is one how to reach God to ask him questions we have in our minds so this leads mankind into different directions so people do all sorts of things in order to get near to God as they think better for themselves. This gives birth to many different ideas and practices which we call religions or versions of religion. However no matter what people think and do in the name of God they cannot know anything about God for sure because God is not within their reach through their brains and senses. At this stage people who wish to take undue advantage of each other in the name of God do so therefore people end up divided into many religions and sects within those religions. This is all a mazhab or religion is from the beginning to the end.  
 
Now the deen of Islam aspect of this equation is God getting in touch with humanity. Since people cannot get in touch with God but God can so he gets in touch with mankind through his revelation eg in this era it is the Quran that is God's revelation. This is the fundamental difference between deen of Islam and mazhab. It is a case of people looking for God and God looking for people and when the two meet that is when the connection becomes complete. Think it as if you want to get to the top of a mountain but you cannot on your own so someone drops you a rope from there to help you get there but you can only use that rope if you could rise to the height needed for you to see and catch the rope. However to get to the top of the mountain one has to be able to use the provided rope properly otherwise one is in danger of falling off and breaking one's neck.  
 
The rope itself does not do anything to get you on the top of the mountain, it is because your creator and sustainer has a purpose in mind for creating you and that purpose does not allow him to make the rope do everything for you to get you to the top of the mountain instead he wants you to make your own effort as well in getting to the rope and using it properly. It is God and man working together that can help humanity succeed in accomplishing the purpose of God that is assigned to humanity by God. This is the main reason mazhab is very different from deen of Islam. This explains what is going on around the world in the name of mazhab and deen of Islam ie why there are soofies and mullahs and this and that and all claim to have something to do with Islam. This is like you have to travel from one place to another but you have to use various modes of transport to get there. You may start walking then take a bus and then get into a ship and then into a plan etc etc to reach your destination. What is going to help you make your journey without problems is your best preparation for it. If you think you can get from a to b without needing any preparations then you will be prone to losing your way at many point along the way either by sticking to a particular mode of transport not knowing when to get off one thing to get onto another. This is what religions and sects are about and that is why people are lost in them because they get into this journey without making necessary preparations ie without educating themselves about finding out the truth in this regard. This is why confused people have so many make beliefs and do all sorts of ritual acts in order to please God as they think. This is why it is very important to understand proper concepts about God so that we do not have wrong expectations about God and from God. This is the main reason getting to the revelation of God and making proper sense of it becomes vitally important otherwise we could end up believing all sorts of wrong things and doing all sorts of wrong things in the very name of God thinking them to be right and proper. Such a thing then could become a barrier in our path when it comes to searching for guidance from God.  
 
Let us suppose a person has made necessary preparations and he gets to the revelation of God ie you have the Quran in your hands which claims to be a guidance from God for mankind. From here on another journey starts and that is how to make sense of the text of the Quran or Hadith or any written text be it about history or anything else. This again needs a lot of preparation and the foundation for this purpose is to know what is the original human language, how words came about and how they got their meanings. Why is all this important to know? It is because if we do not know these things then we cannot be sure about human language itself never mind any message of anyone for anyone in any language. It is because without knowing these facts about language we could accuse each other about making up things by ourselves as we go along. To make sure this does not happen these facts are absolutely necessary to know. Since the Quran is merely a text or a collection of written words and nothing more unless we agree its words have a firm foundation and certain concretely established meanings by way of various mechanisms we cannot talk about it or anything else for that matter. This should make absolutely clear to a person looking for guidance from God why such a person has to know certain basic facts about human language clearly before sitting down with the scriopture to make sense of its text.  
 
The other main reason for knowing the very first human language is because without it God could never communicate his message to mankind. In fact one can try and communicate a message to someone else without using any form of human language, one will soon realise what I am talking about. One can try and disagree with me on any of the points I have explained here so far but I do not think one can. Human languages are human inventions but God wanted to use human language to communicate his message, which means he meant to convey his own ideas as they were about things because he knows them in reality. For example, there is a big difference in God using word human and a human being using word human. It is because God knows each and everything about a human being but not a human being despite being a human being oneself. This is why a language that has ability to accommodate message of God has to be used therefore God becomes limited by this fact just like a grown up becomes limited by talking to a baby in baby language. A baby cannot use a higher math’s book. So there arises need for God to wait till baby has become a gown up human being and has a lot of experience with real world realities by interacting with them directly which help him learn things. This is why we provide our kids with toys because we think they will help them learn things by playing with them. God has created a lot of things in this universe for the very same reason that people interact with them to learn from experience with them and then once they have enough knowledge then they sit down with book of God and try and make proper sense of it and once they have it then work according to its guidance.  
 
This is why God needed to use an original human language to express his message for mankind which could not be mistaken by learned people in the human world for anything that did not fit his purpose. Any period bound language could not express message of God because no human generation was ever capable of knowing all at any point in time in human history. This is why a language had to be chosen by God that was flexible enough to be understood by all for ever after the message of God was revealed to mankind. Such a book in this era is only and only the Quran as we shall see when we get into detailed study of the Quranic text.  
 
The Quran explains throughout itself what deen of Islam actually is and what it is not. Moreover the Quran is an interactive book because it is for human beings who have been created with ability to self program themselves just like self programming robots. So people who have prepared themselves well should have little problem in understanding its message properly. So people who think God should spoon feed them or do all the work and leave nothing for people to do need to think what they are asking for and why or is there any sense in it at all, because whoever does anything does it for himself so does God. We cannot force our will on God because it is his will that is supreme. Therefore we should not ask God for things that make no sense in the context in which we ask if we sit and think over it. Can one therefore see how the Quran proves to be a book of science and philosophy, society, politics and economics? It is because it is book of guidance and not a book of complete instructions for each and every person to each and every minute detail. It contains only and only what was essential for mankind to know so that they could find their way to purpose of God for creating them. The foundation of deen of Islam is its name ie a way of life which is capable of leading mankind to blissful, dignified and secure existence in this very world which will be rewarded in hereafter as well. Word ISLAAM is from root SEEN, LAAM and MEEM. These letters are same as in Hebrew. Word Islam means same thing both in Arabic and Hebrew and various other ancient languages as well.  
 
 
Why is it of vital importance to know about origin and development of human language?  
 
It is because to know the message of God properly is not possible without knowing such facts. If people did not invent ways of communicating with each other then they could not explain anything about anything to anyone because they had no way to communicate with each other. The original human language was body language which gave rise to sign language or gestures. The sign language was coded with sounds and pictures and that is how people came to speak, read and write what they wanted to convey to each other. This was the origin and development of human language which became more and more complex with time due to people discovering many things generation after generation. Why knowing this information is of vital importance for people in order to make sense of message of God? It is because message of God is communicated through words and words have meanings. How did the words come about and how did they get their meanings is therefore very important to know for proper understanding of the message of God.  
 
The other main reason for which knowing such information is of vital importance is because God knows things as they are as he has brought them about but people do not because they are born into this world knowing nothing at all. Although people are born knowing nothing at all but they have been bestowed with brains, senses, bodies, things to sense and interact with in order to learn. The learning process begins with observations of real things as to what they are and how they work and then questioning about them and then trying to answer those questions. Once people have learned sufficiently through their deep and wide life experiences through interaction with real world realities then they are ready for undertaking study of the message of God. This is why people who do not prepare themselves for understanding the message of God properly remain confused all their lives and they cannot follow the revealed message of God faithfully no matter how hard they try. This is why just reading the book from God without knowing some important facts is a useless exercise because the message is sent for a set purpose and that purpose cannot be fulfilled till the message is first understood properly and then followed faithfully. This is the main reason the Quran forbids people from following each other blindly like sheep. It repeatedly tells mankind do not follow even your own very ancestors if they have not learned things that are of vital importance for humanity as a proper human community. This is how the Quran emphasises importance of intellectual integrity. If one's ancestors did not learn sense to be sensible people then it is better that a person oneself learns sense to be a sensible person and not be like one's ancestors ie a foolish person.  
 
Deen of Islam is therefore not a personality cult as most people assume it to be. It is a program for God set goals for mankind to accomplish according to his provided guidelines. This is why deen of Islam is about organising and regulating humanity into a proper human community otherwise its set goals cannot be accomplished by mankind according to its provided guidelines. The main reason people must not follow anyone blindly is because no one knows all things other than God and people cannot understand message of God unless they go about it the way they should as explained. If people will not try to know message of God as explained then they can never make proper sense of it ever. If people will fail to make proper sense of message of God then they cannot benefit from its presence. This is why people must make a real good effort for knowing the message of God properly so that they could ensure their own well being as well as of each other both in this life as well as in life to come.  
 
As explained, the message of God is mainly a set of goals with a program for mankind to accomplish according to his provided guidelines for a constitution and laws so that people become a proper human community through organising and regulating themselves. As long as there is no purpose there is no need for any constitution or law but if there is one then there arises need for a constitution and laws because then all that is there or is done has to be according to some sort of foundational values or rules or chaos will become inevitable and that means the mission or purpose or objective will remain unaccomplished. It means when there is no law then anyone can do whatever one likes but once there has come about a law then that law has to be followed by all involved or things based on that law will not materialise. This is why even the law giver has to remain consistent with his provided law or all his promises based upon that law will mean nothing at all. This is why when there is a law then there cannot be any personality cults because persons come under the law be it by their own choice. This is why laws of nature are consistent and constant and do not go through changes once God has set them up for set up systems to operate. This is why guidelines given to mankind by God for forming constitution and laws do not go through changes because they are permanent and that is because goals set by God for mankind to accomplish are also permanent. This is why deen of Allah was always the very same from the beginning till the end. Unless people take these like basics as foundation they cannot make proper or complete sense of the scripture sent by God or the real world realities no matter how hard they try.  
 
 
God, a proven fact or a mere fiction?  
 
People are born knowing nothing at all so generally most of them remain ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained and unskilled therefore are very limited in their thinking and doing things. That results in false interpretations of divine message because people are not used to organised or purposeful thinking that leads to sure results. There is nothing wrong with being ignorant because that is natural state of human existence but man is created with ability or potential to learn so remaining ignorant is a crime against God and humanity. That is because an ignorant person is of no use to himself or for that matter to anyone else. Knowledge is power and if one does not have this power then one is powerless or weak and unable to do anything much.  
 
Courage comes from knowledge and ignorance only breeds fear. It is through fear of the unknown man has taken forces of nature and other powerful things as his gods. However it is all a process of growing up. Man is born a baby and grows biologically, psychologically and sociologically. From the day God brought things to existence all has been evolving and has reached the stage that we observe today. It was a very long journey and it will remain a very, very long journey till we reach the stage that God has chosen for us to reach. A human being though begins as a single cell the potential placed within this cell is so great that man has yet to realise it for so many generations to come. It is like a huge tree that grows from a tiny seed bit by bit over a period of time.  
 
The Quran has nothing to do with religion and blind faith. It is a book which deals with all necessary information that humanity will ever need for its guidance. The Quran is the only book in the world of its kind as a proof of existence of God and his program. A book that acts as guidelines for a manifesto, a constitution and a set of laws or legislation. In order to know all this from the Quran itself one has to educate oneself to the level whereby the Quran begins to make sense. After all no book is written without any purpose in mind of its author nor anyone does anything aimlessly. Anything that just happens without any intent and effort is taken as a mistake not a motivated act to some end. Even if someone kills someone by his mistake it is still a mistake and not a first degree murder.  
 
What is Quran? Centuries back in time an Arab by name of Muhammad claimed he was a messenger from Allah. People asked him for a proof of his claim so he gave them a book namely the Quran as evidence to prove his claim. That is the book we are going to talk about and see if that claim was true or false.  
 
Before we begin examination of the Quran in some detail, it is necessary for people to know the difference between self evident facts and proven facts. Then it is also vital to realise the difference between testimonial proven facts and theoretically proven facts.  
 
God is not a self evident fact, that is because we humans cannot detect God by our senses directly or indirectly through instrumentation etc but the universe is self evident fact and all that which exists in it because it is detectable by human senses even if by use of instrumentation if not today may be at some stage later.  
 
The Quran is testimony of God therefore it needs to be examined as a testimony just as we examine the testimony of a witness in a court of law to see if it is true or false. However before we can properly examine any testimony of any witness we need to understand it properly because without understanding what a witness is saying we cannot judge whether what one is saying is true or false. If a witness only spoke French language and the examiner only spoke Persian language then things will not workout till one of them learns the language of the other, the same goes for subjects under discussion ie if one person talked about biology but other could only understand physics things will still not work out till one of the persons comes to know the subject the other is talking about. Likewise a child or a baby minded person cannot understand grown up or educated person's terminology. Since no one does anything without any purpose in mind neither one testifies without knowing why one is testifying, so knowing the purpose of the Quran also becomes of vital importance. However once testimony is found to be sound ie without contradictions within and with respect to related self evident facts then it has proven reliable or true. This is called testimonial proof ie reliable testimony of a witness. One has to remember that one cannot add anything to the testimony of a witness from oneself nor can one take away anything from it, it has to be examined as it is and a person has to come up with one’s own explanations to accept or reject it depending upon the fact the explanation offered is a sound one are not. So the Quran has to be examined the way it is given to mankind without saying what should or should not be in the Quran. If the Quran is found lacking in anything objectively only then it could be proven false but then we will have to prove that it does lack in necessary information regarding its stated purpose. That is if the Quran states that it is for this or that purpose but when we examine it, it does not serve that purpose then it surely proves itself false but on the other hand if we find that it serves its stated purpose fully then the Quran has proven its worth fully so it cannot be denied what it claims to be ie word of God.  
 
Coming to theoretical proof, it is a best personal explanation of available evidences or clues. This is needed because something that happened did not happen before our eyes ie it happened in our absence and that there is no any witness to it either upon whom we could rely to tell us about it. That is because we arrived at the scene late and found only whatever clues were left behind to make whatever sense we could from the clues. For example, we are walking along a road and come across a dead body. There is no one there to tell us what happened to this person so all we can do is see whatever clues are there and come up with an explanation. It could be a murder or natural death or suicide or an accidental death etc etc. So whatever clues we find will help us decide what to make of this situation.  
 
So one can see that theoretical proof is not as strong as witness based proof and witness based proof is not as strong as something that happens right before one’s own eyes. That is how far it is possible for humanity to reach the truth about any matter including existence of God.  
 
This also proves the point that if there is a testimonial proof from God then to fall on blind faith is a false idea and is misleading and this idea must have been implanted in human mind by those who wanted to mislead mankind ie the imperial priesthood. It also proves the idea of versions of religion coming from kings and their priests not God to serve their purpose. Islam is deen not religion. Islam is all about brotherhood of mankind based upon testimonial proof whereas religion is a matter of divide and rule using blind faith for following priests and kings. That is how mankind have been used abusively in the name of God and religion. This is why kings and their priests perverted the messages of God to subvert mankind from deen of Allah but they did not succeed in doing that however they succeeded in making fools of ignorant people. The result is a world that we see all around us today. In order to change this situation for the better we all must learn and educate ourselves and each other to save ourselves from abusive use of each other.  
 
So all people must learn the Quran properly to examine it as a manifesto and program from God for mankind to accomplish some goals according his provided guidelines. The basic goals set by the Quran for people to accomplish are unity, peace, progress and prosperity for mankind. The world in which we are born is only a lab for our experimentation to learn through trials and errors till we have become good enough to be one day managers of the universal factory of God. This process needed to be the way it is because we are supposed to learn from working of this universe and make changes to it to make it suitable for our own living in it ie make it compatible with our existence through interactions within this universe. This is why we are provided with all necessary information and raw materials. This will become clearer as I explain the purpose of creation.  
 
It is important to concentrate on logic and evidence as well as consistency and how they combine to prove existence of God positively. If we ignore this relationship between logic, evidences and consistency then we cannot prove anything at all because then we want everything to happen before our very eyes or as far as we are concerned nothing happened at all eg a murder has not taken place just because it has not happened before our own eyes. It shows how flawed is our thinking in that case because we are denying the very principle that is accepted by all wise people in the world whereby they decide all such matters for which there is no direct evidence at all. After all what is TOE about? Yet almost every scientist worth the name accepts it as a theoretically proven fact.  
 
The other way to look at positive proof of existence of God beside testimonial proof is rational proof. It is a self evident fact that this universe is there. This universe was not always there is also an observed reality. This means it was created, why? Because unless something that changes with time is not created by something that does not change with time it cannot come about. Nothing can come out of nothing ie there has to be something that brings about something ie God has brought about this world. How is that possible?  
 
Since we are here and we know that we are not here permanently so something has bought us here but the question is what brought that thing about? The answer is that thing was not brought about by anything because that had to be there always otherwise we end up with an unending chain of creators, which is impossible. Why is it impossible to have an unending chain of creators? It is because then before each creator could create anything the creator himself needs to be created by its creator. Take this chain to infinity and you will see that in that case nothing gets created, we are not supposed to be here in that case. Let me explain it by an example.  
 
I ask you to help me with some money, you tell me that I need to borrow it from someone else to give it to you but that guy tells you the same and so the story goes on for ever and ever, tell me will I ever get the money I asked for? No, never. It is because each guy keeps going to another guy for borrowing the money so this chain of borrowing does not end so that I could get the help I need. Likewise if each creator needed another creator then when will any creator be there to create anything because creation could not be there at all as a result? Since creation is there therefore it had to have a creator that was always there.  
 
Why the creator created this world and sent his revelation? Because creator wanted to express himself. Anything that exists and is lively has the impulse to exert itself ie it wants to be known as a living being. You have urge to be known if you exist and you are a lively being.  
 
Tell me how would you introduce yourselves? Through your actions that show creativity on your part. God could not express himself unless he was being creative because nothing can. The other problem for urge of expression is that you need to be appreciated by something else that is capable of appreciating you as a creative being. In order to express himself God ended up creating this world and to be appreciated by something he created mankind in it. Something that is free to think ie has its own mind and has ability to show its own creativity given the tools and raw materials as well as a chance to prove itself. God has provided all tools and things of need for man to learn in this factory of God through experimentation ie trial and error till man becomes perfect enough to one day manage his universe for his own good. A time when human potential will become fully unfolded before man and that is the time when man will realise how great creator God was that he created such a wonderful thing called man who himself is such great creator as the handy work of God. That is how one day God will be pleased with what he has created and man will also be please with what he has done with his God given abilities and tools and this is how God will praise man and man will praise God in real sense not by paying lip service to God by not doing anything that shows human creativity.  
 
This is why people need to try their best to understand the Quran properly and follow it faithfully. It has nothing at all to do with mullahs mumbo jumbo. The Quran tells us repeatedly that Allah created all things for mankind ie for man to have it under his control one day and to use it to show his creativity through using it sensibly. He created horses and donkeys etc etc for mankind and man was able to think out ways to domesticate these animals for his use. The same way man has to learn how to become controller of the universe by first learning how it works and then using that knowledge for redesigning it so that it becomes like paradise for mankind to live in.  
 
This is why first thing for humanity to do is to eliminate conflicts from between mankind then after unity get on with task of conquering the universe. The Quran tells us that mankind will have blissful, dignified and secure life throughout this universe. So there is plenty to do yet than what we can think of right now.  
 
This is how the universe and the Quran complement each other so God did not fail in expressing himself but we humans have yet to learn much more than we already have to see the purpose God behind all this carry on of ours. We have yet many, many more generations to go before we can say we have established anything much in our own right to be proud of.  
 
God does not want pooja paat instead he wants to be acknowledged and appreciated through knowledge and creativity because only and only learning knowledge about things can lead us to creativity for which God has created us. Only people of knowledge and creativity can truly acknowledge and appreciate God due to his knowledge and creativity. This is why real human beings are graded above all else. God is only great because of his knowledge and creativity by which he was able to express his existence and greatness. So there is no sense in denying the obvious.  
 
The Quran is all about mankind as a single community so it looks at its actions as collective actions of humans as a single family therefore consequences of its actions are also interlinked for the reason of correction of its mindset, attitude and behaviour ie by way of interaction between its individuals and groups etc the human community can move forward in time doing better for itself or worse. When human community does wrong to each other and continues down that lane after some time people rise against this situation and try to pull it off this course to place it on another path that leads to something better. This situation of error and correction will continue till mankind have had enough experience and finally know what is right or wrong and so give up living their lives the wrong way. This is the time when deen of Allah will become truly established among mankind. Even though the Quran teaches things but it is people who need to learn things till they reach the level of learning that will help them realise or actualise what the Quran is actually teaching them. It is like a road map is there but a person to read it needs to prepare himself to be able to make use of it and that takes time and experience. No matter how much parents try to teach their child, the speed at which a baby learns is still a major factor ie learning does not depend on teacher alone but student as well. Since humans are created to learn like self programming robots so they will take time and wil;l make loads of mistakes. Not only that but they will keep erring and they will keep on correcting themselves till they have learned enough to not to make as many mistakes as they do at the start of the learning process.  
 
In the Quran in things that happen man is only held responsible for criminal behaviour and for that intention or motive or purpose behind the action or inaction as well as the course of actions taken, both count.  
 
Life is all about learning but learning is only possible through trial and error. When a person is born he learns to use his brain, his senses, his limbs and in fact his entire body and things available to him.  
 
In this process a person makes many, many mistakes and many a time hurts himself or others. You try to sit but fall over and over, again and again and even get hurt, when you try to learn how to stand, the same happens etc etc. Humans learn things throughout their lives eg you learn to read and write and learn professional skills and go through countless trials and mistakes. The ultimate aim is to be able to do things without making mistakes so we practice more and more in order to be better and better at doing things if not perfect.  
 
This is why there is no concept of sin in Quran- because it is not a book of religion- but about stopping crime because it is about rule of law based system ie Islam. The Quran very clearly states that even if you kill someone by mistake, it is not a crime. It is because for any action to be a crime it has to be motivated by harmful and destructive intent. Any harm that results through mistakes should be compensated where possible through actions for better results ie you try your best to replace loss the best you can as a human being. Only crime is to be punished but the intention for punishment of crime has to be restoration of balance in community that was disturbed by the crime so that unity and peace returns to community after disturbance.  
 
When a crime is carried out or is allowed to be carried out or is helped to be carried out then community spirit breaks down and once motivation for being a community is gone then you are no longer a community but individuals and groups based on private and personal vested interests against the common good or interest. If you committed a crime and others helped you in various ways eg stopped authorities from catching you, charging you, putting you on trial or saved you from being convicted and even after conviction people get you forgiveness then where does all this leave the human community spirit? Moreover why would anyone do that if one is a community friendly person?  
 
In Quran intervention is good if it is motivated for the benefit of human society eg someone was going to kill somebody and you changed his mind, somebody was going to shoot somebody and you took away his gun, people were fighting and you intervened and saved people from bloodshed. Someone was going to take poison and you got there in time and saved him from doing that. Somebody burnt himself and you took him to hospital or put some ointment on him. Someone was accused falsely and you intervened and proved he was accused falsely. Someone is convicted wrongly and you intervene and get him retrial and he is found not guilty and is freed etc etc.  
 
When a person commits a crime, none is allowed to intervene to save him from being charged and put on trial and after conviction from his set out punishment. However, proper advice is allowed so that one does not commit crime to begin with or that one is not charged under false allegation, or put on trial and prosecuted or convicted wrongly or punished wrongly. This is why there is no forgiveness in Quran for criminal unless there is social benefit in doing that because Quran looks at criminal and the victim as members of the same family. If a family has only two brothers and one kills the other then by putting the other to death finishes off the family therefore out of necessity there could be exceptions to rules at times for the community. It is because man is not perfect and all his actions are not necessarily perfect. Therefore the need for a degree of respite is inevitable. From point of view of God his law is fine but from point of view of man, he needs its understanding and he needs to learn its proper application and wherever things fall on man the possibility of error cannot be ruled out so God had to compensate for that. God has limitations as a God and man has limitations as a man. Just as God cannot be expected to do un-Godly things so a man cannot be expected to do things beyond his natural limits as a man. This is why attributing God with human qualities or a human being with Godly attributes is a hugely wrong thing to do because it puts all things in a wrong perspective and context both for God and creation.  
 
Sin is an imaginary concept and so is forgiveness and atonement etc. This is why these are religious inventions by establishment priests to give people sense of freedom from punishment of their crimes in this world by leaving everything to hereafter and then introducing the idea of forgiveness through intervention of good guys to end the sense of punishment for crimes. This way you do what you like and then say certain prescribed words or do some prescribes rituals and all is well, as if you are a new born. These are not Quranic concepts but were adopted into Islam by establishment and its clergy from other religions for their own purposes but later priestly classes accepted them as they are without any due thought process and they keep spreading them. By looking at Muslim societies throughout the world we can see the results of that. Islam is more about this life than hereafter. There is a saying in Urdu that duniya aakhirat ki kheti hai ie the life in this world is the one upon which depends future life or you reap what you sow. The end result depends upon your own thoughts and actions. It is wrong to think that if you commit crimes in this world, you can get away with that just because you believe certain things or say certain words or carry out certain rituals.  
 
The point to remember is that if mistakes are not to be punished and crime has to be that which is motivated and intended then conviction is inevitable and once conviction is there then punishment that fits the crime is inevitable because that is the way God has set up things and no amount of nonsense beliefs and rituals invented by priests can change that. The concept the Quran puts forth is that of collective punishment rather than individual punishment and concept of punishment is based upon cause and effect or consequences of peoples' own actions as a family. The Quran wants humanity to sort out its all problems according to the provided program for set out goals along with guidelines so nicely that one day the world is what it is supposed to be ie a blissful, dignified and secure place called paradise for mankind to live in. So long as people keep neglecting their responsibilities as a proper human community in a kingdom based upon guidance of Allah, the world will remain as hell as people make it for themselves for as long as they want it to stay that way.  
 
This is why people need to understand the Quranic concepts and not listen to their ignorant religious leaders or they are bound to keep suffering the consequences as told in the Quran. This is what evolution of humanity is all about and that is what revolutions are all about. The world is going through cyclic changes and will continue that way till a proper human society comes about that is exactly as the Quran wants it to be. It is people who are going to bring it about not God. He has sent his messenger for the final time to humanity and has said that deen of Islam is finally to prevail ie the world will end up united, peaceful, progressive and prosperous regardless of what opponents of writ of God think or do to try and prevent it. They will lose out and humanity will become the winner. So we all should be part of solutions to problems and not be part of problems. This cannot happen unless we intervene for ensuring well being of humanity by doing things that are of benefit to humanity and stop intervening for harms and destructions of humanity by doing things that benefit none or even harm others. This is why religion is a false concept and deen is a true concept. And this is why priests are wrong but learned scholars of the Quran based deen of Islam are right.  
 
The Quran tells people to find out things and if you do not know them ask those who really know them. Don't go to those who do not know them. Who knows things and who does not can become obvious from what they tell us ie knowledge speaks for itself.  
 
 
Do nonMuslims who criticise the Quran know how to study the Quran properly?  
 
Do nonMuslims who criticise the Quran know how to study the Quran properly? Do people who claim to be Muslims know how to study the Quran properly? Are nonMuslim scholars only responding to nonsense of Muslims which they take for deen of Islam or do they have anything original to contribute to the proper understanding of the message of the Quran?  
 
My question to all such scholars is, please tell me what are the very basic requirements for understanding anything at all? I ask this question because both Muslims and nonMuslims claim that the text of the Quran is nothing more than a jumble of verses that make no sense on their own. Is there anything in this universe that anyone can make any sense of without pondering over it? Was the universe and were the things in it there before a person was born? My answer is yes. Was that person aware of all that he saw with his own eyes, heard it with his own ears, smelled it with his own nose, tasted it with his own tongue and felt it with his own sense of touch? Was he born with proper understanding of all this? No, not at all. If that is the fact then how did one come to make sense of all things that he has become aware of so far? The day scholars come to realise this fact they will come to know that the Quranic text is not a collection of random verses. The universe was a perfectly working order complete system before our birth but we only came to know about it once we used our own brains and senses as well as bodily mechanisms to explore the universal realities to make sense of them. It is we who began to see connections between things after we started observing and doing things with whatever we could get our hands on. This is how gradually we built our information bank about the universal realities and our brains by constructing, de-constructing and reconstructing that information started making sense of things. The process is exactly the same when it comes to the Quran. As anyone comes across anything the very first time, things seem disconnected or remote and random till one starts making sense of them, so the Quran is not any exception in this respect.  
 
To understand anything, to begin with we only need brain language which is all pre-programmed just like a computer comes ready to process information. If we did not have pre-programmed brains to a degree we will not be able to process any data that we sensed with our senses. Imagine putting on windows on a computer that had no cpu=central processing unit. More precisely the ALU arithmetic logic unit that acts as a cpu. All this is called hardware. The brain is a biological computer if you like. That is biologically hard wired ready to make use of its senses and to process any information it gets through them as a mechanism for stimulus or a window to outside world.  
 
Brain keeps collecting information through its senses but it then wants to act on this information so it uses its body mechanisms to express itself or connects to outside world to influence it the way it wants. This is how comes about interaction between things in the environment one is born in. This interaction forced people to communicate with each other using additional languages basically body language and sign language and then that led to spoken language as sounds made by people began to take form of codes for real world realities as their names or names of their actions or the way they seemed related to each other etc etc.  
 
Unless people therefore understand the origin and development as well as use of spoken and written language they cannot understand anything about the origin and development of revelation of Allah throughout times and places or origin and development of humanity itself.  
 
This should leave one in no doubt at all as to why so called scholars both Muslims and nonMuslims fail to make proper sense of the text of the Quran. It is because the language provides the very foundational context of any spoken or written word in any book not just the Quran.  
 
The truth is both Muslims and nonMuslims scholars seriously lack knowledge about deen of Islam and due to that all people are busy killing each other due to animal behaviour or worse.  
 
From my above explanation it should be very clear how important communication is between people and therefore the importance of language becomes very much self evident. Now think about how a human baby learns a human language. Once a baby is born into this world his brain and senses begin to work according to environment of this universe so he keeps observing things as they happen all around him and so data keeps gathering in his head as time goes on. He tries to make sense of things as much as he can at each moment of his awareness. He begins to see that people and things around him react to each other through body movements as well as some sounds. After long period of quiet observation he tries to act the same way in order to copy others in their movements as well as their sounds. He begins to see that others also react to him as he makes some moves or sounds so he keeps remembering these little things and that way builds up a bank of codes in his mind for movements and sounds as words. From this it should be clear that people only come to know what they have picked up through their observations and nothing beyond till they develop capability of thinking at higher level. Not only that it also makes it amply clear that thinking does not start all by itself rather there has to be some triggering factors that draw attention towards something to think about. So learning is all about something drawing attention of people and then people exploring the thing towards which their attention is drawn. If attention of a person is not drawn to something in some way ever, one will never become aware of it ever.  
 
This should explain how people learn a language and why they speak only that language to which their attention has been drawn and do not speak any other language to which they have not been exposed. Take this to origin of human species ie how people invented language in sense of listening and talking as well as reading and writing. Human species came about from tree of life just like other species of living things and developed with time. They started as another species of animals in human shape and gradually developed various way of communication among themselves through observing other things that were already there. Originally humans were driven by their drives and reflexive behaviour due to their very limited thinking capacity due to their limited observations and life experiences. However as they built on their experiences generation after generation they began to think first and act later instead of acting first and thinking later. Just as a human baby acts first and then thinks if he is forced to do so by some sort of reaction to his action so original humans gradually became a thinking people who began to reason things out just as babies gradually learn to reason things. This is why the wider and the deeper the life experience one has the better one's making sense of things is.  
 
Since we know how human language came about and developed question arises, how did people give meanings to words? Originally people had certain imaginations in their heads about things they observed so there were no words but then they made bodily gestures to each other and learned to code them in their minds and that helped them to code sounds as well. Any bodily gesture made by anyone meant the whole things not just one word as we know it today. If one raised his hand to show someone I am going to beat you up that is what it meant by raising of hand that way. If one showed by gesture of hands that I am going to catch you, that is what it meant by that gesture. But as soon as sounds became codified the bodily gestures took form of words the same bodily gestures were translated into meaningful words that made sense to people among themselves. The sound language came about because people wanted to explain to each other things they could not explain by bodily gestures alone eg for preservation purposes for future generations. The same urge led mankind to finding a way of writing down the information. This is how people ended up drawing pictures to explain events they experienced. Pictorial writing gave way to letters and letters were modified again and again to refine them for ease of writing. Likewise spoken language went through modifications for sake of refinement or precision. If we go back to how baby starts talking using very same word for each and everything but then as time goes on he develops capability of saying more and more words to say what he wants to say. With time he builds up vocabulary and so did human beings originally generation after generation. As we can see each and every step in human development was driven by need or usefulness. In other words all this helped mankind to survive and progress because knowledge and skills help people get through life easier as compared to those who remain ignorant and unskilled.  
 
Originally people drew pictures of things as a way of writing down what they wanted to say eg they drew picture of a head of an ox or a bull to represent power or authority. They drew picture of a tent to represent family or a household, picture of water to represent sea or a human head to represent chief and so on and so forth. If we look into Arabic letters they are meaningful words eg ALIF means bull and it represent power and authority or stick, BAA means house because originally it was pronounced BAAIT in Hebrew where Arabs got it from. What is known as RAA in Arabic was RAISH in Hebrew or in Arabic RAAS=head or chief. Likewise letter AIN means eye both in Hebrew as well as Arabic. Since all letters in Hebrew are meaningful words so they are in Arabic. The root system also originates from Hebrew and ancestral languages. In root system a few letters are taken as a unit or set or root which is given the meanings based upon individual letters as well as sum total of meanings of all letters. This is why each root has various concrete meanings as well as derived meanings because originally each meaning was a label given to a reality in real world eg BAA=BAAIT=house and house is a concrete reality then word BAAIT itself has three letter root ie BAA, YAA and TAA, so these meanings keep on expanding with each extra word and its combination of letters. YAA means YAD both in Hebrew and Arabic and it means hand. This is how letters were attached meanings in forms of roots. Once a letter was given concrete meanings a set of conceptual meanings also came about based upon what a things was and what it did or what it was useful for or was used for or the way it worked or served a purpose. For example, letter AIN means eye but what is eye and what it does or is used for is also part of meanings of letter ain. This is why in Arabic a root can have many meanings not just one or two. Now that things about origin and development of language are explained in detail it is easy for anyone who has knowledge to see how many objections people raise against the Quran based on lack of understanding of language as to how it came about, developed and was used and as well as how words got their meanings or how language works in actual fact etc etc.  
 
Let us now turn to the Quran. People ask, why Allah does not explain each and everything in detail in the Quran? It is because Allah had a purpose in his mind and had a plan for mankind due to which he created people and the rest of the universe and sent his revelations for mankind to live by so that purpose and plan of Allah comes to its fulfilment. All this is explained in detail in the Quran the final revelation of Allah for the mankind. Whenever anyone does anything one has some reason or purpose for doing it. Allah created mankind and the universe and sent his revelations because he is a living being and wanted to express himself. The only way he decided to express himself was through creation and revelation. Since he wanted to express himself he decided to create mankind for appreciating his creator out of his own choice and that is why humans are taken as special creatures of Allah unlike all other creatures.  
 
Since humans have been created with ability to choose to do things at a higher level than all other creatures therefore Allah could not fully program people to be like fully programmed robots instead he had to program them to a degree and leave them to program themselves for the rest of things that is why he gave people brains, senses, bodies, provisions and revelations to learn and do as they please. This is why the Quran only contains information as much as it serves the purpose and plan of creator of the universe and nothing more than that. It is the implication of what one does that binds one to his plan and purpose and so Allah himself bound himself by this purpose and plan and nothing can make Allah change his mind because if he changes his mind then his purpose and plan will fail and that is impossible ie plan of Allah cannot fail. No one forced Allah to take on this responsibility upon himself but he decided to do all this so he will go through with it no matter what. Since Allah has a purpose and a plan to fulfil so it is not possible that Allah should do anything that ruins the whole thing for him.  
 
Allah is capable of lots of things but only as a God just as man is capable of doing things but only as a human being and this is why the Quran is the way it is. What do I mean by that? I mean that the Quran is a limited text in a language that was not yet fully developed. Why Allah had to send the Quran in an ancient language and why he chose Arabic in particular for the revelation of the Quran as his final message for humanity? It is because Arabic was the only language that could serve purpose of his revelation in this age. Why? Because it was a root based language and that made it very flexible for meanings of words so Allah could express his thoughts in a human language that was so flexible in its meaning therefore it could accommodate thoughts of Allah for guidance of mankind. Not only that but all other root based languages were not as wide spread as Arabic at the time and since then. This is what made it right for the purpose of Allah. But why Allah did not wait till Arabic language developed to its fullest? It is because a fully developed language becomes very precise therefore needs more text for explaining the very same thing because it has more words for more concepts. Let us go back to development of a human baby. A human baby begins with less words to tell many things and as he grows with time he gets to know more and more words for telling about more and more things. However his ratio of words and thoughts gradually reduces ie he uses more number of words for expressing lesser number of thoughts and that is what leads to precision use of language. So what the baby told us using a word or two now he can tell us in many words. His parents had no problem understanding him because they had learned to make sense of what he used to say when he was speaking less number of words. So people who learn things can understand them and those who do not bother to make sense of things they do not understand them regardless the language is under developed or over developed, course or fine.  
 
If the Quran was revealed in a fully developed language its text ought to increase many folds than the text of the Quran we have. Imagine Allah revealing a huge encyclopaedia containing each and everything we humans ever needed, could we make any use of it? No, why not? Because human brain is not that capable to cope with that amount of information. As things are in this universe the way it works, it will have been impossible for people to copy information and share it with each other or to preserve it for coming generations or to carry it about etc etc. So even though Allah was capable of sending people a huge book, people were not able to cope with it due to human limitations. This is why people need to look at things in the context they are explained in the Quran by Allah himself instead of telling Allah what he should or should not have done. This is not for people to decide but right of Allah because when Allah decided things people were not around to give him their suggestions. Moreover if Allah followed our human suggestions instead of doing what he wanted to do, this universe will still be worked upon by Allah because each person will have told Allah many different ways to create things, so plan of Allah will still not have seen the light of the day.  
 
This explanation should make clear to anyone with knowledge why knowing things about language is so important because then one can clearly see implications of attacking the Quran from the wrong angles eg why Allah did not explain things in more detail etc.  
 
The study about origin and development of language tells us that words have various meanings and that those meanings are based upon solid foundation beyond a shadow of doubt. This deals a fatal blow to criticism of the Quran by those people who say that Muslims are seeing things in the Quran which were not there before after they have been discovered by scientists? It shows that if people who claim to be scientist do not have knowledge about the origin and development of language then they can end up making false claims about something they know nothing about. This is how looking at things in their proper context reveals the truth beyond a shadow of doubt. Take for example letter AIN in Arabic. It means eye but it also means a spring why? Because when eye cries it sheds tears and that is why it also means a source of water ie water spring or well or pond or river or sea etc etc. Moreover the very same letter ain means help or support and that is because eye is very much helpful to a person who uses it to see things to find his way to things or around things. This is why to guard or to keep an eye on things and likewise many other meanings come about as a result of a rule whereby meanings of words keep on expanding. On one hand this flexibility in the language helps accommodate various concepts but on the other it also creates a problem that if a word can have so many meanings then how do we choose the right meaning of a word?  
 
After language based context one has to look at the text on basis of its purpose. For example, if I am going to employ someone to guard a place as a watchman then other meanings of word AIN will fall away and that means I am not talking about a water spring. Likewise if I am lifting something heavy and need help with it then I am not looking for a guard or water spring and that is how context makes things very clear despite a word having so many different meanings due to context of origin and development of language. Likewise when we look at words in the Quran we need to keep in mind that we are looking at the Quran as a supposed word of Allah. Why do we need to do that? Because the Quran so claims ie it tells us it is word of God. Since the Quran itself claims to be word of God therefore we have no choice but to examine it for what it claims to be. We cannot investigate something for which we have no claim or accusation or no reason to investigate. Unless there is some case to answer or some accusation or claim about something we have no reason to start an investigation. Only when we have a reason for starting any investigation we will start an investigation. When it comes to the Quran, we cannot start an investigate for what it does not claim to be because we can only start an investigation for what it claims to be and since it claims to be word of God so that is the only reason we can start investigating its claim to see if it proves itself true or not. This means anyone trying to prove the Quran is not the word of God is looking at things the wrong way round. It is a situation like someone claims he has murdered someone and another person comes along and says no he did not. Now we have two opposite claims but the priority rests with person who claims to have murdered someone.

So first we will have to ask the person who claims to have murdered someone to bring his evidence and only if he fails in providing one that we may go to the other person to see what is his evidence for claiming he did not murder someone. However if the person who claims to have murdered someone comes up with a credible or irrefutable evidence then the other person is proven wrong who claimed he did not murder someone. This means people who instead of investigating the Quran for its claim raise other claims against it but have never been able to properly investigate the Quran in the first place to begin with their claims about the Quran are not credible at all. To show they have investigated the Quran for its truth the first things they will need to know is origin and development of language and then the purpose of revelation of the Quran in the context of the Quranic text. If a person is unable to show the Quran has any model in its text but in actual fact there is a model that can be shown from the Quranic text then the case is clear that either the person investigating the Quran does not have the tools needed to know how to investigate the Quran properly or that one is being deliberately dishonest for one reason or the other better known to oneself.  
 
What do we need to keep in mind when we investigate the Quran for its truth? We need to keep in mind that if the Quran is truly word of God then it is talking about things exactly as they are so all meanings of all words need to be taken in that context because God is creator of all things he is talking about in the Quran ie he is talking about things from his point of view where he talks from his point of view unless he is quoting others. The other thing we need to keep in our minds is that we are human beings and as human being we do not know facts as they are till we learn about them in detail through our own research and exploration. So it is a matter of fact that we may not know actual facts about things because we may not have learned them yet therefore we will not be able to make proper sense of things we never learned but the Quran talks about them. So if we do not know things about things then we cannot be certain in expressing our opinions about them till we have come to know them. If we say something is right or wrong without knowing it then that is not the right way to do things. For example, Allah talks in the Quran about human beings in detail but to know what Allah is saying we also need to reach our own understandings about human beings through our own research and exploration or we will not know what Allah is talking about if we are not familiar with things he is talking about regarding human beings.  
 
The question is, have we carried out our own research and exploration as to what human beings are so that we could make sense of what Allah is exactly talking about when he talks about human beings? Allah talks in the Quran in detail about human society, politics, economics etc etc but if we do not know anything much about any of these subject matters then how can we claim we know what the Quran is talking about? Likewise Allah talks in the Quran in detail about philosophy of science and philosophy of history but do we know what philosophy of science and philosophy history is about? Allah talks in the Quran in detail about his program, goals and guidelines for mankind but do we know anything about all this? Allah talks about the universe and things in it in detail but have we carried out any research and exploration to know the universe and things in it? He talks about constitution and laws for mankind but do we know anything about them? Allah talks about organisation and regulation of human society but have we ourselves properly learned anything about organisation and regulation or have we managed to organise and regulate ourselves properly as a proper human community? So who has investigated the Quranic text properly in detail to reach a proper conclusion one way or the other about the Quran?  
 
All this explanation should show very clearly to people of knowledge whether anyone has investigated the Quran properly ever since its revelation after the messenger of Allah passed away. To be able to answer questions about deen of Islam one has to know the Quran properly and one cannot know the Quran properly till one has reasonable grasp over idea of origin of language, how it got its concepts therefore meanings. It is because the Quran was revealed in a particular human language at a particular time in written form as well as in form of reading.  
 
No mullah has any idea about the origin of language, its development and progress and the relevant implications. This is why almost all translations of the Quran are mostly defective because they do not take into account the contexts of the Quranic text. Who can say anything for certain about anything if one has no idea what human language itself is? If anyone wants to make sense of the Quranic text, one has to look for information outside the box in which so called scholars and mullahs have put people for a very long time now.  
 
1)Which scholar or mullah do you need to go to for studying origin of language? All you need to do is learn any facts about any language from any people who are expert in knowing and teaching those facts about a language and they do not have to be Muslims only or nonMuslims only. In fact they can be atheists or theists or neither.  
 
2)Which scholar or mullah do you need to go to, to learn about realities of real world? All you need to do is go to people who observe real word realities and explore and carry out research works therefore discover things and inform people about them.  
 
3)It is a matter of fact that one cannot understand the Quran unless one knows facts about the human language and the language used for the Quran by Allah. Because it gives us foundational context of the Quranic text. It is due to having proper sense of human language that we are able to make sense of realities of our universe in which we are born. It is then that these realities of real world give us secondary foundational context to see what the message of the Quran may be. If we do not know things about language or real world realities then we have no way of knowing what words are and what they actually mean. This is why the Quran puts emphasis on using our God given brains, senses, bodies and provided things including his revelation properly, otherwise people are nothing more than animals. In fact God himself labels them worst of all the animals.  
 
4)Only if one has sense of these contexts, the context of the Quranic text within itself becomes important not otherwise. Once we have the understanding of the Quranic text in these contexts only then we have the context for things attributed to the messenger of Allah as a criterion to see if they are true or false. Once we have all these things properly in their proper contexts we can see what people attributed to people is true or false because then we have the solid criterion to judge things by.  
 
All this explanation shows that one does not need any scholar or mullah to explain anything at all because learning and doing things is common heritage of humanity. We can learn anything from anyone who knows it. However whatever we learn we have a duty to pass it on to others for ensuring well being of mankind.  
 
The Quranic use of languages helps expand human power of thinking. How does it do it? It does it by using less number of words for expressing more number of concepts and facts. It is because when things are talked about in less detail then the listener has to put pressure on one's own mind to think out what the speaker is talking about and that helps mind expand and become more sophisticated ie the more one tries to figure out things the more human mind expands and becomes more capable of making sense of more things which in turn helps humanity make progress and prosper. Through revelations Allah has been drawing human attention to things so that people are stimulated to explore things and grow both physically and mentally. So the revelations by Allah played a huge role in helping humanity to be what it is though people did not make full use of it so far otherwise world could have been in a much better state than it is.  
 
To address questions about Quranic transmission is also important. The fact is, the Quran we have today is the same as the one the messenger of Allah left behind. it is because the transmission of the Quran has been flawless. The Quran came to us in three different ways independent of each other. In form of written text that has been copied from written copies. In form of memorised words through chain of hufaaz (=memorisers of the Quran by heart) and in form of meanings of the words used in the text. You cannot write the Quran out of memory alone particularly uniformly nor memorise it from written text without differences due to nature of the Arabic language the way it is due to its origin, development and progress as well as its use and working. Because there is uniformity in memorised Quranic text as well as there is uniformity in written Quranic text copies that concretely proves it beyond a shadow of doubt the Quran was transmitted flawlessly. It is because the way Arabic was written in ancient times people could not memorise the Quran as a uniform recitation from their individual writings due to inter-changeability in spellings of words and likewise they could not write it down from memory as a uniform text due to various ways of writing the same words due to replacement of letters in words due to multiple roots of the very same words. This is why any claim that the Quran was not a written down text in the time of the messenger of Allah falls flat on its face.  
 
Anyone who knows about origin of language and its development knows that Arabic uses a letter replacement idea in words a lot. It is because Arabic is a relatively new language as compared to its sister or ancestral languages such as Aramaic, Hebrew, Ugarit, Phoenician, Syriac, Akkadian etc. Since Arabic comes from other languages so it borrows words from them therefore it ends up using multiple roots to express the very same concept due to transliteration problems between languages. For example, word MAKKAH is also called BAKKAH why? Because these two words Arabic borrowed from two or more different languages. It is like word PARAAN and FARAAN. In Persian both sounds exists ie P as well as F but in Arabic P sound does not exist so the Arabs use their own closely resembling sound to P which is F or B. So while Persians say PARAAN Arabs say FARAAN. The same is the case with word PAKISTAN ie Arabs say BAKISTAN ie they replace P with B.  
 
This problem exists between languages as a matter of fact. It is also a matter of fact that languages have been borrowing from each other heavily because they are interconnected just like generations of the people themselves. In some cases one language has borrowed from another language directly but in other cases indirectly ie first a word was borrowed by one language so it was modified to suit use of that language and then from that language it was borrowed by another language and was modified to make it suitable for use in that language. So depending on from how many different languages a word has been borrowed by a borrowing language it became pronounced and written in different ways in the very same language that borrowed it and this is the case in case of Arabic language as well. In Arabic letters like TAA, SAA and TWAA are interchangeable because they sound very close. Likewise letter BAA, FAA, MEEM and WOW are interchangeable. The case is same with letters SEEN and SWAAD or letter ZAAL, ZAA, ZWAAD and ZWAA. Letter ZWAAD however can also be interchanged with letter DAAL because it is also called DWAAD instead of ZWAAD. Same is problem with letters KHAA, QAAF and KAAF, HAA and HAA etc etc. Over a period of time in Arabic itself letters and pronunciations became standardised but transliteration related problems between different languages remain the same even today. Arabs did not modify their language beyond 28 letters symbols but they modified the language by adding symbols for vowels including HAMZAH eg FATAH, KASRA, DAMMA, MADDA, SHADDA and a short alif symbol which is placed above or below a letter to make it equal to adding ALIF or YAA. The Quranic text is based upon that standard. There has been no modification in number of letters since the revelation of the Quran. So long as the Quran remains in existence and people keep adhering to it, there will not be any modification in Arabic language of that nature which changes it completely into a modern language breaking its ties with its past like other latest languages. However borrowing between Arabic and newer languages continues even today and so it continues between other languages as well.  
 
The purpose of this explanation was to show why Arabic has more than one root set for a word in some cases. For example, let us take word KITAAB. It has only one root in Arabic ie KAAF, TAA and BAA. However this is not the case with word ISRAA. This word has a few roots ie SEEN, RAA and WOW; SEEN RAA and YAA; SEEN, WOW and RAA; and SEEN, YAA and RAA. In ancient times all Arabs moved away from each other so they were not one people living in one and the same place speaking exactly the very same kind of Arabic even though originally they come from the very same ancestors. Human race itself is originally one race that comes from same ancestors but people moved away from each other as their needs and situations or circumstances demanded or dictated. After separating each people kept on inventing more things and words to talk about them so today people have come together again but they speak very many different languages from what they learned from their original ancestors though some of the words we can still make out among all people because they remained unchanged or suffered less change despite transliteration problems. Likewise Arabs even though were same people but they moved away from each other and then they were united and so there were differences between their spoken and written language of this nature because each group borrowed from other people of other languages they were in contact with as they needed. All this explanation in my view was necessary to come to the point because it will help people understand something I am going to explain about the originality of the Quranic text.  
 
As explained above a lot of words in Arabic are written using different letters. For example, let us take word SIRAAT. In Arabic language word SIRAAT is written in two ways ie using SEEN as its first letter or SWAAD. In some places people write word SIRAAT using letter SWAAD and in others using letter SEEN so word SIRAAT has two roots ie SWAAD, RAA and TWAA as well as SEEN, RAA and TWAA. If we read the Quranic text, nowhere in the Quran word SIRAAT is written with letter SEEN at the beginning and everywhere in the Quran word SIRAAT is always written with letter SWAAD. You will agree that if the Quran did not come down in written form and people made copies out of their memories as individuals independent of each other then we ought to find that some copies of the Quran ought to have in them word siraat written with letter swaad and in others word siraat written with letter seen. In fact each copy was bound to have letters seen and swaad in different places compared to each other. Since all copies of the Quran to date contain this word written only and only by using letter swaad then how do we explain this consistency unless people were given a copy of the Quran in writing to copy the written text from it exactly as it was? Let me explain this in another way in English. If I dictated to a mixed group of people from different countries in different places to write down word MUHAMMAD, will they all write it exactly as I have it in my mind or will they do it the way they know it according to their own life experiences in their own places? An Italian person will write Muhammad the way he thinks and an English person will write it the way he thinks and a French person will write it the way he thinks etc etc. Some will end up writing Muhammad others Mohammed and yet others Mohamed and so on and so forth.  
 
Word SIRAAT is not the only one but there are dozens of such words used in the text of the Quran throughout the text of the Quran and they have been transmitted constantly exactly the same. This should leave no doubt in one's mind that the Quran was transmitted both in written and spoken forms right from the day one otherwise such differences as explained between copies that still exist in the world of different times and places will have been unimaginable due to nature of the Arabic language. For an Urdu, Farsi or Arabic speaker it is very easy to refute all scholars who think the Quran we have today is not original. How? By looking at ancient copies of the Quran. These copies did not have dots to distinguish between letters to begin with and they did not have vowel marks. What does that mean? To explain what it means let me explain things about Arabic writing a bit. Arabic words are written using full letter shapes as well as stumps of letter shapes. When written in full shape one cannot tell the difference between BAA, TAA and SAA, JEEM, HAA and KHAA, DAAL and ZAAL, RAA and ZAA, SEEN and SHEEN, SWAAD and DWAAD, TWAA and ZWAA, AIN and GHAIN etc without distinguishing dots and that is how Arab used to write Arabic originally in olden times. Likewise when it comes to writing letters as stumps they are written at the beginning of a word or in the middle of a word or at its end. In case of being written in the middle letter NOON also becomes like BAA, TAA and SAA so four letters end up using the very same symbol. Not only that the FAA and QAAF also become indistinguishable as well as letters LAAM and YAA. One can look at ancient Arabic inscriptions as well as copies of the Quran to see what I mean. This being the case none could read a writing unless one already knew the text by heart. If one person wrote something and gave it to another to read who did not know what was written then one will have very tough time to make out what the text might be saying. In short no one could read the written text of the size of the Quran in that style of writing ever if one was not familiar with it already or did not have it in his memory. This is how memory and writing both helped people to keep the text of the Quran properly preserved beyond a shadow of doubt.  
 
In Arabic vowels can be replaced with diacritical marks so each consonant could have six possible sounds eg MEEM could be MU or MOOO, or MA or MAAA, or ME or MEEE etc. So if we wrote just four consonants MHMD, we will have 6x6x6x6=1296 possibilities of pronunciations. These are concrete facts which any scholar can verify for oneself. It is really challenging for any scholar to try reading a text that is size of the Quran merely from the consonants alone without having known it previously. One cannot read such a text unless one has it already in one's memory. This is clear proof that the Quran was memorised direct from the source otherwise merely having a text could end up as countless number of different readings because each word could be pronounced in many different ways due to lack of diacritical marks as well as due to lack of dots for identification of each letter in words. The lack of such huge number of variant reading of the Quranic text in the Muslim world concretely proves that the Quran as we have it today is original. There is no scholar on earth who could ever prove otherwise or enemies of deen of Islam who do not let go any opportunity to attack it will have done it already.  
 
Just as it was not possible to read the Quran from the written text alone uniformly so it was not possible to write the Quran uniformly if it was not copied in writing from the already existing written copies of the Quran. Why not? As explained already many words in the Quran had variant roots so if people sat down to write a text out of their memories as individuals then each person will have made a copy from his memory as he knew how to write a word so there will occur numberless variants written texts. For example, if people had to write down word SIRAAT, some will write it with SEEN and others with SWAAD. Not only that but they will do it in different places in the Quranic text wherever this word was repeated. Since the Quran has many such words in it then we ought to find such variations in huge numbers ie trillions of variants but we do not. How can any scholar in the world explain that? So another clear proof that the Quran came down both in written and memorised forms independent of each other.  
 
These simple explanations are sufficient to prove that people who rely on false reports in Hadith books and other sources to prove the Quran was collected and written down after the prophet are seriously mistaken therefore such reports should not be taken seriously in light of such concrete proofs as stated here. Moreover all reliable reports in Hadis books must be interpreted in this context so that they make proper sense.  
 
This however does not mean there are no copying errors in the existing copies of the Quran, there are but the nature of error is very simple ie humans make all sorts of errors due to absent mindedness in whatever they do. Mind always wanders off when people get tired or bored in doing something so they may end up writing something out of context or missing the whole line of text or add something from whatever is in their minds etc etc. Not only that people add their own notes in books for jogging their memory about some points they think are important to highlight for later referral. So those who were copying the Quran suffered the same but nothing was done deliberately because for that one had to have a purpose in mind. What I mean is that if anyone wanted to change the Quran deliberately then one ought to have some purpose in mind which his new Quran could serve and in that case ummah could never have the same Quranic text which it always have had to date.  
 
So all allegations against the originality of the Quran are mere misunderstanding of the scholars and nothing more unless they have ulterior motives to deliberately say falsehood against the originality of the Quran but that only they know for themselves. A misunderstanding of scholars is that they take modification of written Arabic as changes in text of the Quran. They do not realise that when people face problems they look for solutions. It was found very difficult to read and write the Quran the way the original Arabic was written so they came up with idea of adding dots and diacritical marks to reduce dependency on memory. This is why when new ways of writing the very same text were discovered the number of hufaaz of the Quran dropped from say 90% to a few percent. It is because people could now read actual message from the written Arabic text except for a small number of things so dependency on hufaaz decreased with time and coming about of printing press.  
 
To explain the same point further as an example, if a word was management and it was written as MNGMNT but was modified to management due to development and progress in the language then scholars due to their ignorance took it as a change in the actual text of the Quran, which is silly to say the least. We even today use signs for many things including road traffic signs instead of writing because they are easy to work with than standing on a sign post and reading a sign while people blow their tops off shouting during busy road traffic. So it all depends on how a society organises and regulates itself and how easy it feels with what it does otherwise people modify things as it suits them better. So when things seemed difficult Arabs modified the way of writing Arabic and in doing so benefited from this modification. Such simple explanations are ignored by people or they remain ignorant about them yet they claim their research is of highest standard.  
 
Yet other thing in the Quran is letters in the beginning of some surahs. Some of them if were not pronounced as well as written they could confuse people as to what they were ie words or separate letters eg take surah two verse one letters ALIF, LAAM and MEEM. The way they are written in surahs they could be taken for meaningful words because there is a word in Arabic which is pronounced ALAM eg see in surah 94 verse one.  
 
Yet other evidence is the fact that the very first verse of the Quran is always written the very same way ie BISMILLA HIRRAHMAA NIRRAAHEEM. It is written with 19 letters in it always whereas it can be written with a few more letters eg ALIF in ISM of BISMILLAH is MISSING. Word ISM is written in surah 96 verse one with ALIF. Anyone will find that all copies of the Quran throughout the world are written exactly that way. Had each person dictated the Quranic text out of memory and each person wrote it down the way one knew to write it then we ought to see very many differences in written texts of this nature but there are none.  
 
All copies of the Quran have no bismillah at the start of surah nine. Had people made copies as they liked then we will have found variations between them some including and some excluding letters, words and verses in the text. So there is water tight evidence that the Quran as we have it was written down by the messenger of Allah himself and handed down to his people before he passed away. He actually delivered the message of Allah as it was supposed to be delivered ie in recitation and writing otherwise he could not have been chosen as a messenger by Allah. Even we humans do not choose bad workers for getting our works done if we can help it so how could Allah be expected to do such a silly thing as choose someone unfit for the job? That will have ruined the whole purpose and plan of Allah for humanity. Had the final messenger of Allah himself not left an undisputed copy of the Quran behind and the people at the time fully accepting it then people could have ended up divided about it right from the very beginning for ever and none could have united them on the basis of the Quran after him. Today whatever else Muslims do they have only one Quran and copies of the Quran are available throughout the world even from long time in the past. According to some claims we have copies of the Quran even from the time very near to the time of the prophet and some odd pages even from the time of the messenger of Allah that show exactly the same text as we have it today.  
 
Unfortunately Muslims are not good at preservations, observations, research and explorations. It is a miracle in itself for Quran to have survived intact till now somehow because Muslims are such a people who did very little to advance the message of the Quran properly. The way people claiming to be Muslims are busy killing each other it is not going to take very long before they are all gone. Any remaining ones will be done away with by kufaar. But then Allah has a plan of his own so we will come to know whatever awaits for us good or bad. Muslims fight among themselves due to their ignorance and stupidity and not because there is anything wrong with the Quran.  
 
Please do note that scribal errors are there in the hand written copies of the Quran and so are there printing errors in printed copies as well as book binding errors even in currently published copies of the Quran but they should not be taken seriously as human errors are human nature. These errors if I sit down with copies of the Quran can find and correct but I will not do so nor advise anyone else because that will be tempering with original copies that are historical documents of huge value. However since we are aware of these like errors therefore we should not let them through to newer copies we make through future media that is more capable of helping us for coping with this task. Moreover when we talk to people about errors in the Quranic text we should never claim that there are no human errors in the copies of the Quran. Such errors have no affect upon the actual message of the Quran therefore its integrity.

The problem with claims of all western scholars of the Quran is they are not aware of certain facts about the Quran due to which they have no idea what the deen of Islam actually is. Their biggest problem is mullahs who had no sense of the actual message of the Quran so they misinterpreted the actual Quranic text and misrepresented the message of the Quran therefore the whole response of western scholarship is in that context which is therefore incorrect. A true scholar of the Quran should separate the Quran from what its alleged followers say about it and look at it as a document in its own right and see what it says afresh according to rules explained above by myself very clearly. If one then did not find the actual model of the deen of Islam in the Quran that could not be defeated then one had the right to claim all those things ignorant people claimed about the Quran.  
 
NonMuslim scholars assume right from the very beginning that the message of the Quran is what people who claim to be Muslims say they believe it to be. This means they are not examining the text of the Quran but what people claim about the text as to what it means. It shows their scholarship is not up to the standard the Quran requires for its scrutinizers or cross examiners or critics. This only proves their ignorance and stupidity or ulterior motives just like rulers, money lenders and mullahs or both.  
 
1) Questions have been raised by Muslims and nonMuslims alike whether it is possible to translate the Quranic text perfectly. What has been explained about the nature of the language in sense of its origin, development and the way it works and what is explained about role of God and role of humanity should leave one in no doubt that it is not possible for humanity to interpret the message of God precisely ever. The main reason is difference between the knowledge of God and knowledge of people. However, it is very much possible for all practical purposes for people to know and teach the message of the Quran to each other with a degree of accuracy in sense of its purpose, which is mainly guidance of mankind to some degree or as much as people can make proper sense of it. So any claim that anyone ever knew the whole of the Quran perfectly is a false claim. Even the messengers of Allah only came to know as much of the revelation of Allah as was humanly possible for them according to their own time and place as per their own life experiences. It is because to understand anything at all one has to have related life experience. It is like you teach the Quran to a child for memorising so the message is in memory of the child but sense about the message will only develop in the child as child learns things throughout his life experience as he grows. If a memoriser of the Quranic text never thinks about understanding its message properly then he will never know it properly despite having the text of the whole Quran memorised in his head. All one can say is that messengers of Allah knew the message maximum possible at the time or that no one knew the message as good as the messengers of Allah at the time. Any claim about any messenger of Allah about knowing things beyond human capability is attributing falsehood to the messengers of Allah. In deen of Allah there is no such thing as personality cult. It is because the reference is always the revealed scripture from Allah not any particular person be one a messenger of Allah. It is because only Allah is free of making any mistakes so only his message can be free of all errors.  
 
As for human beings they cannot be declared free of human errors but one can say they never did anything deliberately wrong if they were true followers of the word of Allah. This is why they cannot be the reference point in their own right independent of revelation of Allah. In the Quran Allah talks about prophet Ibraheem as an exemplary messenger of Allah and he is said to be leader of mankind but only so far as his following of the message of Allah. Even when he asks Allah about his biological and ideological children to be made leaders of mankind, he is told very clearly that yes but only if they also followed message of Allah like you. The idea that Quran asks people to follow any messenger of Allah as a model in his own right is attributing falsehood to Allah and his messengers. This is a very important and a decisive point for all people to pay their attention to and who wish to know the message of the Quran properly. A clear proof that deen of Islam is not a personality cult as claimed by mullahs of various sects. This is why the primary source of information about deen of Islam is the Quran not the ahaadith attributed to the messenger of Allah nor the information passed down the generations of Muslims in form of books of fiqh= the so called Islamic jurisprudence. This does not mean the books of Hadith or Fiqh are not important but only as secondary sources to the Quran. The main reason for that is the status or position of the Quran in deen of Islam. The Quran is taken as word of Allah, the master of the universe and all that exists. He is sole ruler of the universe by right of its ownership due to being its creator. This being the case no human being should claim nor should be accepted as an authority on equal footing with Allah. All human beings be they messengers of Allah are still his creatures and not Gods in their own rights so people cannot be given same status as that of Allah.  
 
2) When it comes to interpretation of the Quran, as explained already it must be interpreted mainly in context of its language and its purpose in light of self evident facts or in light of real world realities ensuring one does not introduce contradictions within the alleged testament of Allah or between the alleged testament of Allah and self evidence facts or real world realities when the Quran itself claims to be free of such contradictions and tells mankind to check it against real world realities to see how consistent it is in order to realise how the Quran proves to be word of Allah. That means people who sit down to interpret the Quranic text must first be familiar with things the Quran is talking about because if anyone will try to interpret the Quran not knowing the required information for doing this job then such a person will make tonnes of mistakes and if such mistakes are passed onto people as the message of Allah then it could have serious consequences for humanity as a whole even if such mistakes are result of an innocent adventure by a person. It is because people who will accept the message of the Quran on basis of its translations will not be accepting the actual message of the Quran but its inaccurately translated versions which will be effectively false teachings in its name and by acting upon those teaching people will be doing things that could end up harming them as individuals and as groups.  
 
Likewise people who will reject the message of the Quran due to mistakes in the translations of its message will be rejecting the actual message of the Quran assuming it to be actual message of the Quran instead of taking the translations as erroneous and inaccurate, so they will turn away or remain away from the true guidance of Allah due to mistakes caused by the translators. The consequences will be serious because the result will be more and more divisions among people of the book and more and more people will move away from the book and as people remain divided and divisions increase more and more fights and wars will continue between people because of wrong interpretations of the message. So one can see what is at stake if things were not done the right way. However this will be taken advantage of by those who want things to be that way ie rulers, money lenders, mullahs, their touts and supporters due to their ignorance and stupidity as well as arrogance ie due to their sense of dominating others by undermining them so that they could use and abuse them at will. In short such people will try their best to use the scripture as a tool for manipulating mankind to fulfil their own personal objectives thereby.  
 
3) It is very important that when we talk about Islam we have some understanding of the actual situation. The main issue when we discuss Islam is, what do we take Islam for ie a set of make beliefs and some useless rituals for individuals or a program for mankind for accomplishing some goals according to some guidelines as a proper human community based upon Quranic constitution and laws for running a kingdom in the name of Allah according to his guidance?  
 
Anyone who takes Islam as a religion has to answer a main question, why there are guidelines for a constitution and laws for organisation and regulation of human society? What has praying to do with God and with running of a kingdom or a community? It is because religion is all about individuals having some so called beliefs and doing some acts of so called worship as one sees fit. It is not anyone's business what anyone else believes or does because it is a private affair between a person and his God. The main question one has to ask oneself is, does Islam fit this category? My answer is very clear that Islam does not fit this category therefore I do not accept Islam is a religion nor should anyone who knows the Quran better.  
 
All people who have learned some sense and have studied the Quran for knowing Islam believe that Islam is not only about God and man but about God and man as well as about humanity as a whole. In other words Islam is a way of life that leads mankind to an end that is set by Allah for mankind. It is the main reason why Islam is called deenillah or sabeelillah or ADDEEN or deen of Islam ie the way of life advised for mankind by Allah for a blissful, dignified and secure existence. All this explains why Allah advised this way of life for mankind.  
 
Since in my understanding of the Quran Islam is not a religion therefore any argument over religion of Islam is a nonsense and shows a person is totally confused about Islam be one a person who claims to be a Muslim or a nonMuslim. The main thing is that anyone who thinks Islam is a religion must first prove Islam is a religion before one accepts it or rejects it or raises any objection against it or answers those objections. In other words there is no sense in talking about Islam as a religion because it is not a religion so why waste time and energy on something that is not really there. I therefore oppose views of any person who claims Islam is a religion regardless one claims to be a Muslim or happens to be a nonMuslim. I want such a person to prove from the Quran that his claim is right about Islam that it is only a system of some dogmatic beliefs and some rituals that have nothing at all to do with real world realities. It is because religion cannot be but a private matter for an individual and his God whereas the Quran is very clear that Islam is not a private affair of an individual and his God. This is why in my view Islam is a deen because what is told in the Quran is related to real world realities. The whole message of the Quran is about changing the real world realities for the betterment of mankind to ensure well being of mankind. Since it is a deen so all need to understand it as such regardless they claim to be Muslims or happen to be nonMuslims. So all questions about deen of Islam are to be asked and answered in that context.  
 
Since Islam is a deen sent by Allah therefore it is a program from Allah for mankind for accomplishing some goals according to his provided guidelines. Since it is a program for mankind therefore the message of the Quran must be taken to all people in the world so that they have a look at it and think it over and if they like what they are told they come together to form a community network on basis of a constitution and its laws as per guidelines provided in the Quran. This is the context in which people need to understand Islamic shariah or law or jurisprudence. It is in this context one must come to know the procedure for writing a constitution or forming a law. This is why individuals need to know the Quran and have their opinions and arguments to back them up but it is the ummah that is to decide together what is to be the correct interpretation of the book and arrive at a consensus after having the knowledge needed for interpreting the Quran properly. Unless it is an educated ummah that accepts a constitution or a law as a whole, it cannot be called an Islamic law or shariah. From this explained procedure it should be very clear why fatwas by ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained, unskilled and unthinking foolish individuals mean nothing at all in proper context of deen of Islam in light of the Quran. One must remember that a constitution or any laws must be accepted by all in the ummah freely after at least a simple properly educated majority agrees upon them. None is supposed to accept any constitution or law that goes against the stated goals and guidelines of the Quran. Before people sit down to argue over what the constitution or law should be they must have a very good idea about what are the goals they want to achieve or accomplish as an ummah and what are the guidelines so that no article or clause is put in the constitution that is in conflict with the aims and the objectives of the constitution.  
 
In other words a constitution needs to be written down with declared objectives right at the top of the document. Since aims and objectives are the starting point of written constitution so all clauses that follow must be in line or consistent with these objectives otherwise the so called constitution or the laws will not be worth the paper they are written upon. Once a constitution is structured with all its articles, act and clauses as a complete document with all the needed laws regarding institutions, office bearers and individuals and organisational groups in the ummah then ummah as a whole must examine it with care and see if any mistake has been made in constructing this document before it is ratified and implemented by the ummah. If anything important is left out or something has been added which is not right then changes can be made in the constitution or laws even after ratification but each time any change has been made it must be put before ummah and accepted by it otherwise the document will become invalid as a constitution or law. I will explain what are the aims and objectives or goals set for ummah to accomplish and what are guidelines so people should read through to come to know them because each and everything about the Quran and deen of Islam cannot be explained in one place or in one go otherwise people will not have written or read explanations about the message of the Quran in so many volumes.  
 
The other important point to remember is that the Quran is about three states of existence of Muslims ie as individuals in any place in the world, as a proper human community anywhere in the world and as a proper human community within a kingdom of their own based upon guidance of Allah. Each of these three states of existence has its own requirements. Individuals are only required what they can do as individuals and proper human community is only required what the proper human community can do as a such and a proper human community in a kingdom of its own is required what it can do as a proper human community in a kingdom of its own. In short there are very limited requirements for individuals but requirements increase when people become a proper human community and they increase even more when the proper human community has its own kingdom based upon guidance of Allah. It is because as people who accept deen of Islam increase in their numbers their power increases and therefore their responsibilities also increase towards each other and towards rest of mankind. For example, an individual is mainly responsible for learning and educating oneself about all one can learn in one's life time as well as about learning the Quran and only when one has learned deen of Islam properly oneself one's responsibility increases for teaching it to others the best one can. However it is binding upon individuals to learn about deen of Islam properly and then pass it onto others. It is also binding upon more than one Muslims to always live together as a family fully supporting each other in every way and keep working to bring more and more people into the fold of deen of Islam or into the proper human community based upon guidance of Allah. Once a few people come together they must organise and regulate themselves according to the Quranic guidelines as explained. They must form a constitution to help them organise themselves and work out laws to help them regulate themselves in light of Quranic guidelines as well as in light of ground realities that face them as per their situations and circumstances.  
 
When a Muslim lives among the rest of humanity, one sees human world living in a terrible state of affairs because each person is tearing apart any other like an animal to get what one wants of the others. All this is result of ignorance, illiteracy, lack of proper education and training ie people are hardly any better than rest of animals therefore they choose to live by way of life based upon personal gains at the expense of each other. Out of this human population someone rises above others to try and give people some better direction ie a way of life based upon living for each other as a proper human community so that life could become somewhat better for human beings than what is already there. Since this person is part of rest of human race and is born into an already existing human population so he faces a lot of difficulties and hardships because he is challenging things as they are in order to change them the way one sees fit. This being the situation all those who benefit from things as they are, are going to become upset with him and are going to use all means at their disposal to keep things as they are. It is now up to people as individuals to decide what they support and what they oppose and the direction they take will decide their future as a human population. This divides people into a few different camps despite the fact that people are already divided into individuals due to adopting personal gains based way of life at the expense of each other. Nonetheless there arise some who clearly support the change and others who clearly oppose the change and yet others who are undecided and some who play from both sides of the fence etc etc.  
 
Since divisions are already there in human populations due to rivalries and animosities so hatred and wars are also there therefore there is little that changes just for sake of new movement for ensuring well being of mankind. In other words any person who rises up in an already fighting population cannot cause any more damage to whatever is already there but can try and see if one can get rid of all this harm and destruction among people by hands of each other. This was the situation with messengers of Allah who tried to guide mankind out of their harmful and destructive mindsets, attitudes and behaviours based on harmful and destructive ambitions and desires against each other. When Adam was sent as a messenger by Allah people were already killing each other and chiefs were looking for a way out of this harm and destruction because they became fed up with whatever was going on in their societies. Same was happening when the final messenger of Allah came to save people from their own harms and destructions which they were already inflicting upon each other ie there were already wars ongoing all around Arabia eg Romans and Persians etc were already busy fighting each other and even tribal people were at each other's throats within Arabia itself.  
 
The Quran tells us facts about human history but mullahs have masked the information given in the Quran with their nonsense due to their ignorance and foolishness because they did no research and exploration on what the Quran was talking about to find out but instead made up stories while sitting on their behinds. They have been telling people Adam was first man who was created by Allah directly without involving natural process of cause and effect. The Quran on the other hand explains things in sense of designed development of things from a starting point onwards like a flower gradually starts opening up bit by bit till it has opened up fully. In other words Allah talks about gradual unfolding of his plan with time like blossoming of a flower or growing of a huge tree from its tiny seed.  
 
The very first proper human community was gathered by Adam with help of his supporters who then brought about a kingdom based upon guidance of Allah. He was opposed by a chief named in the Quran as Iblees. Iblees and his supporters did manage to bring down the kingdom Adam and his supporters brought about but they managed to rebuilt it. Attention should be paid to the fact that the Quran talks about various stages of development of the universe and humanity itself and that things comes from each other. For example the Quran talks about tree of life which we can call tree of evolution today. It talks about various stages of development of a human being even before the birth of a human being as well as stages of development of a human being after his birth till death. This is a clear proof that the Quran is talking about natural chain of cause and effect or cause and effect process in the natural world. Things have been created to observe already existing things and learn from them and do what they think is right for them to ensure their survival but humans have been created with maximum freedom for self programming as compared to all other living things. All this will explained here and there in my interpretation of the Quran so I will not go into detail of all that here.  
 
It should therefore be clear that deen of Islam is not the problem but solution for problems that human beings have created for themselves through senseless interaction between themselves and therefore have ruined their environment and thereby themselves. It is because human environment cannot be other than what they make of it due to human beings affecting their environment and their environment affecting them. This is how environment changes people and people change environment and that is why it is important for people to think and act properly or be ready to face the consequences for not thinking or acting properly. This is why by learning things and educating themselves about the real world realities and the revelation of Allah people can bring about the world the Quran promises. The Quran is a real plan for building a proper human community and therefore a kingdom in which all people have a blissful, dignified and secure existence with help and full support of each other. If that is what we human beings want. If not then people are free to keep doing to each other as they are or have been since their beginning and keep getting the results that we have been or worse.  
 
Since security of people depends upon each other according to the Quran and unless they agree to live peacefully for progress and prosperity of each other they cannot have any kind of security so all questions relating all kinds of security what if this and what if that become meaningless in context of the Quran and deen of Islam.  
 
For example, people raise questions about CHAADUR, BURQA or VEIL etc or does Allah require people to wear certain kind of dress? Before asking such questions one must make oneself aware of the fact that deen of Islam has aims and objectives for mankind to accomplish so if something is needed for fulfilling its objectives then it is needed otherwise it is not needed because ways and means in themselves are not the objectives and it is the purpose that decide what is necessary and what is not for fulfilling it. This is the proper context of understanding the commandments in the Quran.  
 
Now coming to question of dress code, it depends upon what is actual security available to people in a human population of which one is a part. When there is war like situation in a population and each person is trying to dominate others by undermining them by all means at his disposal then all are put under siege by each other because all are worried what is going to happen to them the next minute and who is going to do them something really bad so all need to take maximum security measures to try as best as they can to stay safe from each other. In such a society no one will be happy to see anyone else because all spell danger for each other as predators and preys. However if a population has decided to live as a caring sharing family making sure safety and security of each other then all are relaxed and glad to see each other. Now when you feel threatened then you take measure that are appropriate and when you are feeling safe and secure then you relax your security measures as well. It is because in one situation you try your best to hide yourself from others as well as anything else you treasure because otherwise you are sure to lose it to predators or rivals. In the other situation you are relaxed so there is no need for running for cover. It is because in one situation everyone is there to take away whatever you have because they do not have that or just because they want to have something extra because they may need it if not today then may be tomorrow which may never come but that is the way people in such a society think about things. In the other society everyone has whatever others have so no one needs anything of anyone else because they gave each other what they all have so no one needs to be scared of anyone else. Adam was told to bring about a human society of that nature wherein all could eat of anything (ie take part or participate in doing anything) except for things which could damage or destroy the proper human community.  
 
From my this explanation it should be clear by now how I look at deen of Islam and why I do that and why I think mullahs have ruined this beautiful message of Allah by covering it up with loads of their nonsense. If one is really interested in learning deen of Allah then it is therefore necessary that people study the language of the Quran and be a thinking people because the Quran repeatedly invites attention of those who are thinkers to see what the actual message of the Quran is and what it has on offer for mankind.  
 
When I talk against mullahs, rulers and money lenders I do not mean the scholarly works people produced are totally useless because they have a lot of very useful things in them which help us move forward if we could learn how to use those works. Dictionaries are very useful works for example, be they written by atheists, Hindus, Parsees, Jews, Christians, Muslims or any other people. Likewise is the case with math and sciences etc etc. The idea that only Muslim mullahs know Islam properly is a false idea. Book of Allah is for all human beings who are looking for guidance but nothing is easy in life so people do need to work hard at learning things including the message of this book called al-Quran. This does not mean works of other people are not at all helpful in knowing about the message of the Quran. None of us is born fully educated and we all learn from each other so exchanging ideas helps to know things better and to discover newer and better ideas because ideas bread ideas just as actions lead to reactions. Good ideas give birth to better ideas and good actions result in better interactions.  
 
The most important point people who claim to be Muslims or nonMuslims need to be aware of is, Islam is a deen not a mazhab. The only people who accept Islam as mazhab are rulers, money lenders, mullahs, their touts and supporters. I will try and explain why they do that and why they want all other people to do that.  
 
No messenger was sent by Allah but he worked for establishing deen of Allah not any mazhab. Mazhab is personal for individual but deen by its very nature demands a proper human community in a kingdom based upon guidance of Allah. The very idea that Allah sent messengers to guide mankind means that Allah wanted people to stick together as a proper human community for well being of each other as a starting point. This is why Allah created people into human relationships as interdependent so deen of Islam is a program for mankind for accomplishing certain goals stated in the Quran together as one people and there are also guidelines according to which these goals are to be accomplished. The Quran is a foundation for a constitution and laws for forming a proper human community and bringing about a kingdom and maintaining it for proper development and progress of humanity so that it could thereafter accomplish other higher goals. This is why there is concept of ummah in deen of Islam as well as of a kingdom based upon guidance of Allah. It is because no people without having free access to land and resources, means of production and distribution can survive and this is why Allah tells people things to do which involve having control over land and resources and means of production and distribution for proper management of people and resources for ensuring well being of mankind. It is for this reason deen of Islam is basically about proper management of people and resources to ensure well being of humanity as a proper human community in a kingdom. This is why Hindus talks about RAAM RAAJ or DEVA NAGRI or Christian talk about kingdom of God. So it is not a Muslim thing to talk about kingdom of God or KHILAAFAH. However the basic idea has been wrapped up in far too much confusion due to misinterpretations of the scriptures and their misrepresentations by their followers. The systems, structures, procedures and practices for kingdom of God are very different from the ones we find in the world today eg in the kingdom of God power rests with God who rules through his book with people being a proper human community who put in place an administration for fulfilling the goals already set according to guidelines provided after mutual consultation and free consent as an ummah. It is not a case of an individual or a group taking over a people by force or by a tricky mechanism to rule them who or which then puts an administration in place that suits him or it for his or its own ends therefore he or it sets his or its own goals and gives his or its own guidelines and makes his or its own laws as he or it goes along to suit himself or itself at the expense of the people he or it rules. This will be explained in detail as we make our way through the study of the Quran.  
 
So people who do not accept Islam as a deen are not accepted Muslims by the Quran because they do not accept the fact that law of Allah is supreme so they do not live by rule of law of Allah as a proper human community and instead live by rule of law of people by accepting the concept that man has right to rule over another man. This concept is all about creating negative divisions in humanity due to which there are rivalries and animosities therefore hatred and wars. It is because this way of life whereby one man rules over another is based upon personal gains at the expense of each other it is in direct opposition to a way of life advised by Allah which is for ensuring well being of all people as a proper human community according to guidance provided by Allah. This is why personal gains based way of life divides people into advantaged and disadvantaged or rich and poor or strong and weak groups and each tries to take undue advantage of the others leading to all sorts of troubles and problems among human beings. The reason such divisions occur is because people do not use their God given abilities and things as they should to help each other as a complementary human society. Since they misuse each and everything provided by Allah for taking undue advantages of each other they end up hurting each other instead of ensuring well being of each other.  
 
This is why Allah provided mankind with guidance and some people accept that guidance and support it while others reject and oppose it so mankind become divided into two camps a)Muslims and b)infidels or kufaar. This leads to permanent struggle between people belonging to two main groups of people. Since people who work for well being of humanity do as told but their opponents do as they like therefore the human world is not the way it is supposed to be instead it is polarised by what people believe and do to each other. Since there is constant struggle between two groups of people who are following opposite ways of life therefore people do what they think will ensure dominance of their way of life over any other way of life including adding to chaos and confusion that is already there.  
 
From here begins all sorts of warfare between people to ensure their dominance over each other. So each time Allah sent any messenger with his guidance and he succeeded in bringing people within his reach under the jurisdiction of kingdom of Allah, soon the kingdom was swamped after the death of the messenger by those seeking better life and the followers of the messengers failed to cope with situations they created for themselves by opening the flood gates for outsider far too much beyond their own capabilities. Once people within the kingdom became slack in implementing the deen of Allah properly and also let outsiders in, in great numbers, the kingdom turned into a chaotic place proving to be full of opportunities for ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained and unthinking people who then spread in the kingdom of Allah the very dogmatic beliefs and rituals they were used to not knowing any better. This handed over perfect opportunities for imperialists to hatch so many conspiracies within the kingdom that it fell apart and became what it was not supposed to be ie an empire based upon personal gains at the expense of proper human community.  
 
This is the history told in the Quran if we properly interpret the stories related to messengers of Allah and the kingdoms they brought about. One cannot understand the Quran by mere random verses and their explanations by mullahs. For example, ask yourselves what happen to kingdom of prophet Sulaiman that was brought about by prophet David? SHAITAAN is not a supernatural magical figurehead but a leadership which stands in opposition to guidance of Allah. SIHR does not mean magic the way mullahs tell us but merely covering of actual thing or masking it with something else to make it appear what it is not eg presenting someone who is not a king as a king by putting on him robes of a king. There is nothing in the Quran about supernatural events other than the acts of creation and revelation. Make beliefs and useless rituals were invented and promoted by rulers, money lenders and mullahs to draw away attention of people from real issues which mattered for them to try to fool uneducated masses so that they could enslave them and keep them under their sway for use and abuse at will for their own harmful and destructive ends through indoctrination or brainwashing. This is why people always conspired against the deen of Allah and his messengers as well as his missionaries in order to stop them from spreading the actual message of Allah which is for ensuring well being of mankind.  
 
When people will start looking at works of opponents of deen of Allah in that context all fights between people will start making sense as to who is doing what and why. In order to try and confuse people, some try their best to show deen of Islam is actually a man made thing. The question is, how do they do that? They do that by telling us all sorts of nonsense eg they tell us Islam is not a deen but a mazhab. This is most severe attack one can ever carry out against deen of Islam because merely by saying Islam is not a deen they are telling us that people do not need guidance of Allah for knowing how they should live properly in this world. This idea therefore flies straight into the face of deen of Islam and its actual followers yet those who claim to be Muslims remain unaware of how damaging this idea of Islam being a mazhab is for humanity as a whole. It means fights between people can never come to an end ever because if people are allowed to live as they like by each other then there cannot be any way out of this way of life based upon personal gains at the expense of each other. Something people in position of power want the most to continue for as long as they can help it do that.  
 
This is why anyone who accepts Islam as a mazhab instead of deen is actually playing in hands of manipulators and abusers of humanity. This is why it is a most dangerous way to attack deen of Islam than actually attacking Muslims with dangerous weapons. It is because in this case one is telling people that harmful and destructive thoughts and actions are good because they are ordered by Allah when the actual fact is, Allah does not tell people to think or do anything that is useless, harmful or destructive for mankind. This is why people who have nothing at all to do with Allah and humanity support religions because that gives them opportunities to carry on with whatever they are doing ie using mankind abusively in the very name of Allah and his books and his messengers etc. This explanation should help people see why rulers, money lenders and mullahs do what they do and how they do it with help of their touts and supporters.  
 
It has been explained already how messengers and missionaries of deen of Allah learned and taught deen of Allah and that is why they ended up creating a kingdom based upon deen of Allah. This is a clear proof that each and every person in the kingdom of Allah knows the book of Allah because otherwise people could not bring about the kingdom of God according to the book of Allah. None can form an organisation or a kingdom nor can one regulate one without having some sort of law. Even the tribal people had tribal customs to live by and they taught these customs to their future generations. This too is a clear proof that no population can live without some sort of common code of life no matter how simple or how complex and sophisticated. All these points are a clear proof that messengers of Allah also brought about proper communities and kingdoms as per God revealed programs, constitutions and laws for accomplishing set out goals according to provided guidelines.  
 
So anyone who thinks Islam is not a deen but a mazhab is far far away from proper understanding of the message in the Quran. Likewise anyone who has little or no proper understanding of the Quran can never understand anything else that is attributed to Allah or any of his messengers or any of his people. It is because if a solid foundation is not there then there is no criterion for judging anything else or to build anything without any solid foundation. The real world realities and revelations of Allah provide one with solid foundation which one can examine for oneself. That is the only base upon which one can and should build the proper human community.  
 
This is why one will be very foolish to leave the solid foundation aside and try to build a proper human community on foundation of personality cults which themselves are not based on anything solid at all. This is why when Allah declared prophet Ibrahim a good example to follow for people he also told them that he is a good example only in following the commandments of Allah. It is because when he asked Allah about the same about his children ie that they too should be followed by people, he was told very clearly that only those people can be followed who actually follow the rule of law of Allah which makes it very clear that the main thing is not following of Abraham or any other messenger of Allah but what he and other messengers of Allah themselves followed as their imaam ie guidance of Allah. Nowhere Allah points out anyone as an exemplary character in his entirety on his own independent of guidance of Allah because even messengers of Allah are not free of human errors. Had Allah put forth anyone on his own as a person to be followed then that will have given birth to personality cults in abundance. So people are only supposed to support messengers of Allah so far as they are doing anything by the book of Allah to fulfil the mission they are sent with and not when they suffer some human error which they do at times. In that case others can bring to their attention the laps if they become aware of it. The way of life for messengers of Allah was not set-up by themselves but was told to them by Allah through the messages they received and it was up to them to understand it properly and follow it faithfully and they did except where they ended up making odd mistakes due to being human beings. This is why all concepts that people have created around personalities in the name of deen of Islam are false. As soon as people will educate themselves properly about deen of Islam they will give up all their nonsense beliefs and useless rituals and start doing what the Quran actually requires of people to do so that its stated purpose and plan come to their fulfilment.  
 
People who attack concept of deen of Islam only do so because they want to replace it with personality cults so that they could then use names of those people to add wrong things to deen of Islam and thereby get their way. This is why beliefs of certain people are taken as guaranty of true Islam whereas people are supposed to take the book of Allah as the criterion after it has been interpreted free of all contradictions as the book itself claims. Likewise when people opposing the book could not find any way to undermine the book of Allah they tried to attack the book by inventing other stories and mixing them up with existing stories about the prophets that were originally completely true in order to try to make their make belief based stories look credible. The same idea was expanded later in books of fiqh. This is why people invented five schools of thought in the names of people none of whom told people to follow them. It were rulers, money lenders and mullahs who tried to move people away from the Quran by keeping them ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained, unskilled and unthinking with backing of imperial machinery as is always the case when people in positions of power decide to use others abusively freely at will for their own ends.  
 
From all these explanations here and elsewhere it should be very clear for all who have sense that not only the Quran but all revelations sent by Allah were not only memorised by people but were also written down by them as well. This is why Allah did not start sending revelations till people had discovered ways of reading and writing. Revelation of Allah only began when man was able to think at a higher level ie man became self aware and aware of real world realities around him and sought guidance because he became a thinking human being in his own right. Story of Adam and his people told in the Quran is actually a true story but it has not been explained properly by ignorant and foolish mullahs because they are hardly that learned people due to not studying the relevant facts. One can see how much self aware these people are never mind their awareness about realities of real world. This is why anyone who thinks deen of Islam is that which is told by mullahs only exposes his own level of ignorance and foolishness about deen of Islam.  
 
Word Quran does mean recitation but not just recitation as mullahs will have us believe. Word QUR-AAN comes from root QAAF, RAA and ALIF. This root revolves around concept of purposeful collection or gathering of something. Letter QAAF means monkey or anything like a monkey in some sense, letter RAA means head or anything like a head in some sense and letter ALIF means bull or something like a bull in some sense. So if we expand on meanings of each of these letters one can see we could end up with so many meanings of this root. This is why it has meanings like monthly periods, sperm collection in a womb, sect, faction, group, a generation of people, reading from a written text, recitation from memory or recitation from memory of a written text, a written collection of some information for preservation, contents gathered in something in some form, time span, cycle, appointed time, to become with child, to gather together, to hold, to hold in, to know, to learn, to cause or enable something, discourse, the entire text of the Quran, reading, chief, manager, managed, power, authority, staff, stick, to imitate, to mimic, to meddle, to fool , to tinker, to be agile, to be mischievous, to make fool of, to be clever etc etc.  
 
Word AL-QUR-AAN is a very comprehensive word. It means each and everything that serves its purpose in one or another sense. For short we can ask, why is the Quran called AL-QURAAN? It is called AL-QURAAN because it is a recitation or proclamation or reading or writing or information or guidance or manifesto or program or constitution etc etc or any of these or all of these etc etc. In fact the whole text of the Quran is merely explanation of what Quran or deen of Islam is. It all depends upon how detailed information one is looking for about the Quran or deen of Islam. This is what we find in dictionaries that people expand words as much as it serves their purpose and not that words stated in the dictionaries do not have any more meanings to add to these dictionaries.  
 
How people try to distort deen of Islam? They distort deen of Islam in different ways eg by bringing in concepts that are merely make beliefs and by bringing in rituals that are useless. Let us take the make belief that Allah sent his messengers with miracles. Can anyone clearly define what a miracle is? No. Can anyone prove that miracles are necessary for proving existence of Allah or prove through miracles that any claimant of messenger-ship from Allah is in actual fact a messenger sent by Allah? No. Why not? Because if miracles were necessary for proving existence of Allah or messenger-ship of a claimant of messenger-ship of Allah then where is any miracle for proving that for people of today? Not only that but there were no miracles for any people who did not witness them at the supposed times of miracles and particularly for the later generations. If Jesus supposedly had shown some miracles to some people in some place then who has shown any miracles at all to other people in other places where Jesus did not reach himself and particularly after Jesus passed away? Today all people are trying to prove existence of God and their religions true only through whatever texts and books they have. What does that tell us? It tells us very clearly that miracles were never needed to prove anything but this concept was invented by rulers, money lenders and mullahs to make fools of ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained, unskilled and unthinking people and they succeeded in doing that till today because ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained, unskilled and unthinking people still believe all sorts of nonsense they are told by their ignorant and foolish mullahs. This will keep happening till people educate themselves out of their ignorance and stupidity. If people of old could raise structures like pyramids in Egypt thousands of years ago which people even today are having problem figuring out how they did it they did not need miracles for proof of existence of Allah because they had the sense to judge things based upon knowledge. The concept of miracles also contradicts the concept of end of messenger-ship of Allah because only prophets can show actual miracles in that case so these messengers then by necessity needed to be sent in each and every place throughout the world to keep showing people miracles which is not the case in real world that is before us. A clearly invented concept to derail the deen of Allah with help of a lot of nonsense or confusing and unending chains of explanations that keep going for ever and ever but explain absolutely nothing at all. The question is, who invented this false belief and spread it among ignorant masses and why? It was work of joint groups of leading people whose interest this idea could serve ie rulers, money lenders and mullahs and they invented this idea because they did not want people to accept guidance of Allah just as they do not want them to do that even today and that is why they are spreading all sorts of nonsense about everything including the nonsense about the deen of Allah to keep people away from serious thinking about origin and purpose of life and the way of life which can deliver humanity from painful suffering and can lead it to heights of excellence. If a people can go to so many wars to try to prevent people from adopting deen of Allah then why will they not try to do that by all other means under their control eg establishment, mass media and spreading false information about deen of Allah etc etc?  
 
How could they keep people away from deen of Allah by idea of miracles? To explain this point let us use an example of a child. Suppose a pair man and woman take away a child of someone else after his birth and keep telling him we are your father and mother till he is grown up, will the child ever know his real parents even if they were sitting next to him? No. It is because the child has no reason to miss his real parents because he thinks he is already with his real parents. Only if he somehow finds out that people he is living with are not his real parents that he will look at other people thinking any of them could be his real parents. Likewise if people are indoctrinated with wrong ideas then those ideas unless challenged, a person cannot find out what the reality may be. So if a people are indoctrinated or brainwashed with idea of miracles or supernatural human beings then unless people are challenged they will always be expecting such kind of people from God as his messengers and if anyone came and just read out things out of some book they will not accept him as a messenger of God because in their minds a man of God can only be a man who can show miracles and can act supernaturally. This is how rulers, money lenders and mullahs made fool of people by setting up personality cults in order to bar message of God in the name of God. It was a very clever idea because people always had problems understanding it for what it really was ie it was a fraud right from the start.  
 
This is why the Quran explains things to help people understand how things work in natural world naturally not supernaturally. The Quran only puts two things as acts of Allah ie the creation of the universe and revelation of his messages. This is why the Quran emphasises the need for education and thinking, observation and proper understanding of things in so many verses. The explanation given here clearly explain that Jesus was not a fatherless child, nor he did any miracles attributed to him and that all such claims related to Jesus that involve supernatural acts are false according to the Quran and people who are saying wrong things about Jesus or for that matter any other messenger of Allah are in serious trouble with Allah and humanity.  
 
Who decides what deen of Islam is and how? Allah, people or both?  
 
In my view deen of Islam is decided by Allah and people both. Allah decides deen of Islam in the sense of his dictation as to what it is and people decide it through their understanding of the message of Allah.  
 
The main point to note here is that Allah knows what he is talking about because he has much more knowledge than people can ever have. Mainly because it is his purpose and plan for humanity. So the one who creates or designs something for some purpose knows better than anyone else what he expects from it or for it. However user must also learn to use the thing properly so that one can benefit from its use instead of getting harmed by it through its misuse even if by mistake.  
 
Since it is people who need to make sense of what Allah has revealed so what do they need to know before they can understand the message of Allah?  
 
Since Allah has revealed his message in a human language so it is of vital importance that people learn things about the human language eg about its origin, development and how it used and works. Unless people come to know about these facts they cannot look at the message of the Quran in its proper foundational context. A human baby when he is born has no sense of language therefore so long as he does not first learn a human language he cannot participate in a human society properly. Think about yourselves from the day you were born till you became what you are. What could you really do before you made some sense of the world in which you were born? How did you come to make sense of the world in which you were born? How did you come to speak the language you speak and how did you come to do things that you do? Could you be of any use to yourself or anyone else if you remained the way you were born ie ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained, unthinking and having learned no skills of any sort? This is why anyone who has no interest in learning things that are important is useless for oneself as well the proper human community. Anyone who tells you anything on the contrary is only telling you falsehood, so do not support any such person who wishes to keep you ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained, unskilled and an unthinking person. Such people even if they happen to be your parents, they are your enemies. Parenthood is not about bringing a child into this world but to ensure as much as it is within power of a parent to put the child onto the road of success by giving all kinds of support one can give to the child that helps him succeed in life. Knowledge is very important factor in all this and therefore language.  
 
Once people come to know things about human language then the next vitally important thing is to know about the purpose of revelation of Allah because it is purpose of creation and revelation that helps understand the plan of Allah because the plan of Allah revolves around purpose of his creation and revelation. No one with any sense does anything haphazardly like a person who lacks any sense. Allah is AL-HAKEEM the wise one so purpose and plan of Allah has to be such that reflects his wisdom. So when people will have learned about his purpose and plan properly they will come to the conclusion that Allah is truly wise in actual fact.  
 
Therefore people should stop wasting their time on doing senseless things instead of focusing on making efforts to know things properly and then do them appropriately after knowing them in order to fulfil the purpose and plan of Allah as being part of it.  
 
The question arises how did rulers, money lenders and mullahs managed to derail deen of Allah from its rails? They invented an idea called SHAANE NAZOOL as a rule for interpreting the verses of the Quran. It is an invention whereby mullahs told people that such and such surah or verse of the Quran was revealed for this or that or the other reason. The idea was instilled in minds of people that Allah was prompted by people to tell things so he revealed the message to tell them what they wanted to know as if Allah himself had no plan for mankind till they prompted Allah. This idea is a severe attack on integrity of the Quranic text because that means the Quran is an incomplete message in the sense that things people needed or were going to need in the future but they did not ask the messenger of Allah about them so they remain unanswered and therefore unknown. Along with that another idea was invented and that was called concept of AL-NAASIKH WAL MANSOOKH ie the idea of abrogation. Another serious attack on the integrity of the Quran. By telling people to accept this idea mullahs were actually telling people to accept that Allah was not a knowledgeable being because he kept changing his mind about things every so often. Within 23 years of life of messenger of Allah according to them Allah changed his mind about things so many times that he abrogated some verses from the Quran and replaced them with some new ones. They did not stop there but also went on to invent the idea that the verses of the Quran were abrogated by such and such Hadith reports as if Allah was working under the authority of his messenger instead of the messenger of Allah working under the authority of Allah. Moreover if within such a short period of time of 23 years the guidance of Allah failed to work then how could it last forever when so many changes in the world were yet to come because the world was created to carry on changing always and forever? This is how deen of Islam was covered up by rulers, money lenders and mullahs through cooperating with and supporting each other through interpretations based upon these like rules. This shows the length to which some people went to try to get deen of Allah out of their way so that they could be left free on their own to use humanity abusively at will. The whole idea was to attack deen of Allah to cause confusions in minds of people in order to create chaos in the human world. What did this chaos and confusion do to the human world? That is right before our eyes if we observe it and look for reasons behind it and the origin of those reason will trace right back to the named sources. When people became confused regarding deen of Islam they ended up being slaves of mullahs, rulers and money lenders. This is exactly what secularist are doing even today by trying to separate God’s rule of law from his kingdom.

The Quran can be used both for guidance and misguidance. It depends on how one has learned to use the Quran to see whether one has learned to guide oneself and others or misguide oneself and others. Those who use the Quran for guidance interpret it the way it ought to be interpreted as explained in detail in this work on the Quran which shows the Quran is free of any kind of contradiction and flaws in light of its purpose but those who use it for misguidance they misinterpret it and thereby try to make it controversial by introducing contradictions in its explanations. This is how people end up questioning originality and authenticity of the Quran. This is why all these things had to be explained clearly in order to show the Quran is free of all faults in light of purpose of its revelation. Originality of a message and its consistency is as important as its purposefulness.  
 
Messengers of Allah had original messages from Allah and they were consistent and purposeful. So long as ummah does not read the Quran with these points in mind and starts questioning what its ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained, unskilled and unthinking mullahs teach it, things will not take the turn for the better for this ummah.  
 
Today people need to know the Quran as we have it is original. It is because if we have any doubt at all that the Quran we have is not original then no matter what we claim to be, we will not accept anything the Quran tells us with our hearts and minds which seems to go against our personal vested interests. So the question is, how many of us human beings have bothered to learn how to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the Quran we have is original?  
 
See how people attack deen of Islam by telling us the Quran we have is not original.

It was duty of people who proclaimed the Quran to humanity that they also prove to mankind its originality. Since we- who claim to be missionaries as a proper human community or an ummah- have stopped doing that it has given the stick in the hands of others to beat us up with. This is why instead of people coming to deen of Islam are leaving it openly or secretly. Instead of reason and consistency we have adopted force where we can use it to try to enforce what we claim deen of Islam to be which we ourselves have no idea is consistent with the Quran or not.  
 
Unless we start studying the Quran the way we should, this situation therefore cannot improve in our favour and will keep on deteriorating. Instead of doing our God given duty the way we are told by God, we are busy doing things we want to do and the way we want to do them disregarding what Allah told us to do in the Quran and the way to do it. No wonder we are not succeeding and are facing failures one after the other.  
 
If we want things to work for us then we must stop doing whatever we are doing and think and do things we are told by the Quran and exactly as we are told to do them. Only then we can be sure to succeed because that is the way our success is guaranteed by the Quran not otherwise.  
 
The questions therefore are,  
 
1)Have we bothered to find out what the Quran wants us to do?  
 
2)Have we bothered to find out the way the Quran wants us to do those things?  
 
3) Have we prioritised whatever we are supposed to do?  
 
4) Have we worked out any effective action plans and have we put them in place?  
 
5) Are we properly organised and regulated for accomplishing whatever we are supposed to do?  
 
If we have done all this then we are ready to face the world but if we have not done all this homework then failure is bound to be the result of whatever we do and that is what is before our very eyes. So no surprise there, is there?  
 
Therefore if we want the world to be a blissful, dignified and secure place for our future human generations then the Quran is the only book that can lead us there for sure and no other scripture, belief or deed against it can bring such success in this life or in hereafter.  
 
So we should stop wasting our time by listening to nonsense of rulers, mullahs, money lenders, their touts and supporters and instead learn how to study the Quran by ourselves. If we already know the Quran then we should help others do the same. We should not attribute any kind of nonsense to Allah and his messenger in the name of deen of Islam. We should try our best to ensure what we are claiming as deen of Islam is in actual fact deen of Islam and not a make belief or a useless ritual or a damaging act.  
 
So we should ensure we know the Quran is original, the message we are getting about the Quran from any source is purposefully consistent with the Quran. If we will accept anything other than that then we are not only digging our own graves but also of our future generations as well as of rest of humanity. We were supposed to be a people of knowledge and practice to educate humanity but we failed very badly and the result is in front of us that others have taken over the leadership of humanity and are leading it to its sure destruction due to following the way of life based upon personal gains at the expense of humanity instead of following the way of life advised by Allah for ensuring the well being of mankind as a proper human community. No wonder therefore why the ummah is target of wrath of rest of the world because it betrayed deen of Allah and humanity both. Time to repent and reform or end up destroyed by hands of each other by continuing on the course which landed us in this situation in the first place.  
 
 
To deliberately misinterpret and misrepresent message of Quran is dangerous, why?  
 
It is very dangerous for humanity to deliberately misinterpret and misrepresent the message of the Quran because the Quran itself carries many warnings in it regarding that. The context of the message of the Quran is very simple in this regard ie make proper sense of the message of the Quran and follow it faithfully and you are guaranteed blissful, dignified and secure existence in this life as well as in here after as a proper human community. Avoid it, ignore it, misinterpret it or misrepresent it then you the mankind are in such a big trouble that you cannot even imagine.  
 
As I have explained already in detail how the Quran should be understood, it also seems necessary to explain why the Quran should not be understood through sources of lesser importance than the Quran itself.  
 
Scientific way of understanding the Quran is requirement of the Quran itself. It is because the first source of information for humanity is its life experiences based upon its God given brains, senses and other provisions without which human beings cannot know a thing let alone understand message of God. This is an undeniable and unchallengeable fact that human beings cannot know what logic is what consistency is unless they first understand things in the real world as already explained.  
 
This being the case the Quranic interpretation therefore has to be based upon facts and not fictions since nothing is as authentic as facts before our senses and our logically consistent interpretation of facts therefore interpreting the Quran independent of fact is just turning the Quran into a fiction. This is why the Quran must not be interpreted wrong way round or the Quran will not make sense no matter how hard we try to make sense of it that way. Failing to make sense of the text of the Quran has not just serious but fatal consequences let alone it landing us human beings in blissful, dignified and secure existence.  
 
The other main reason for not interpreting the Quran the wrong way nor accepting its interpretations based on wrong way is that such interpretations by Muslims provide nonMuslims with reasons to criticise the Quran so instead of people accepting the message of the Quran ignore it and ridicule it. Not only that but even educated Muslims themselves become doubtful about the claims in the Quran and therefore start doubting the message of the Quran thinking it is just a made up stuff and therefore a waste of time to try to live the way it tells as explained by mullahs who are ignorant of actual facts about the real world realities.  
 
A most important question for Muslims to consider is, how do nonMuslims look at the Quran and messenger of deen of Islam if we look at the Quran through Hadis for example?  
 
Their argument in that case is very simple that if the messenger of Allah understood the Quran the way his mindset, attitude and behaviour is depicted in the Hadis reports then that is exactly what he was told to carry out by the Quran and because a lot of stuff in hadis books is questionable therefore the character of prophet and authenticity of the Quran also becomes questionable. It is because then authenticity of the Quran becomes dependent upon hadis works which are human works in their origin.  
 
So it is time that mullahs and their followers start realising what they are actually doing when they try to push the idea of interpretation of the Quran through Hadis or questionable historical accounts.  
 
This is why Muslims must accept the understanding of the Quran through facts and not fictitious stories as basis for proper understanding of the Quranic message. If we accept facts as basis for the interpretation of the message of the Quran then there is nothing wrong with accepting Hadis reports or historical accounts that do not contradict self evident facts otherwise we have no choice but to reject them as fictional.  
 
People who do not accept Quranic message based on facts cannot convince nonMuslims for the truth of the message of the Quran ever. This is why mullahs never enter open and decisive debates with nonMuslims because they already know they have no solid ground to stand upon which clearly distinguishes the Quran as the unique scripture in the world. If we want worldwide ummah then we need to establish a solid ground for ourselves before we can take message of the Quran to the rest of the world in an effective way that can produce results that really matter because solid ground has to be solid enough that when it is put to the test it proves its worth by standing to reason or logical consistency.  
 
Unless we who claim to be Muslims do all this we stand to lose educated people to nonMuslim world as education takes roots in our Muslim states while gaining back mainly only emotionally disturbed people who are looking for support instead of bringing us support because they cannot due to already being emotional wrecks themselves. It is because nonMuslim way of life only suits people who can compete in their societies effectively and that means people who have strength to do that so those who fail become rejects. Therefore unless we wake up to these like facts and take necessary actions we are bound to become more and more collection of rejects than an ummah that is strong enough to face the ruthless nonMuslim world head on with logical consistency.  
 
We who claim to be Muslims therefore need to become like Sir Syed, Farahi, Iqbal, Jinnah and Parwez than stay ignorant fools unable to express strength of our deen of Islam effectively. This is why my work on the Quran must be taken seriously by those who have concern of ummah at heart as well as of wider human population.  
 
So long as we do not interpret the message of the Quran properly and help others understand its message properly, rivalry and animosity therefore hatred between human beings will remain intact and all sorts of wars will continue and grow in intensity between Muslims themselves and between Muslims and nonMuslims as well. It is because the very ground that can unite Muslims and nonMuslims is also the only ground that can bring unity among Muslims as well. So it is up to ourselves whether we want our world for our future generations to be a world Allah wants us to struggle for or the opposite. This is why we can bring about a united, peaceful, progressive and prosperous world by being a proper human community based upon guidance of Allah or a world that is much more dangerous than the one we ourselves inherited from our ancestors due to living by way of life based upon personal gains at the expense of each other.  
 
It is very important for all people to realise that none can understand anything at all without going through process of learning by way of direct interaction with things. This being the case how can people claim they know the Quran when they have no idea about real world realities that the Quran talks about?  
 
1)Is it not true that people are born knowing nothing at all? If it is then where does their knowledge come from if not from interaction with things in the real world?  
 
2)Is it not true that Allah has given people brains and senses as well as bodies and all sort of living and nonliving things along with his revelations so that people could first learn sense through things by way of direct interaction with things and once they have learned sense and have become reasonably sensible then they could get guidance from his revelations as to how to live properly by way of using provided things properly?  
 
3)Which sect mullahs have explained deen of Islam from the Quran on basis of real world realities as they were supposed to according to the Quran itself? If they did not then why people are following them?  
 
4)So is it not time yet for this ummah to educate itself and give up foolishness and stupidity or does it want to continue its needless painful suffering yet for longer?  
 
5)The Quran does not teach humanity dependence upon God beyond provisions and guidance for their use. The rest is up to people not God. A very clear message of the Quran for humanity. People can complain all they like and as quietly or noisily as they like or cry to God all they like day and night but in the end it is people themselves who are made responsible to do things for themselves and each other as a proper human community. So what are they doing to bring about the proper human community so that kingdom based upon guidance of Allah could become a reality so that people could have blissful, dignified and secure existence?  
 
6)All mullahs are devils in disguise who do not tell the truth about deen of Allah. They are fooling the born ignorant and simple minded that is nothing less than criminal. So people should get out of nonsense of mullahs and start using their own brains if they want to succeed in this life as well as in hereafter. Remember, people who do not learn to use provisions of Allah properly can never succeed in here or in hereafter. Success and failure is given in the hands of people themselves by their creator, so people are their own saviours and developers for success. It is they who are in trouble so they should save themselves with help of each other as they are supposed to as a proper human community. So they should do what needs to be done and stop wasting time in doing things that lead nowhere and instead waste time and by the end lead people to their self destruction.  
 
7)So when are they going to learn and start relying upon themselves instead of looking to God who told them already what he had to tell them in his book? So they should first become sensible by getting needed life experience and then read the book of God to get needed guidance and then they should get up and do what needs to be done and that is what proper deen of Islam is according to the Quran. Anything other than that one reads in the translations of the Quran are works of mullahs to make fools of people for their own reasons so people should find out what those reasons are or suffer the consequences for staying ignorant as fools.  
 
Mullaism must not be taken as deen of Islam because it is not and no way any of the mullahs or their followers could ever prove their nonsense as deen of Islam. It is time for ummah to educate itself out of ignorance and stupidity. It is time to become literate, educated, trained, skilled and thinking because future only and only belongs to highly knowledgeable, highly thinking and very hard working people. If there is no logical consistency in an explanation it can never be true. Make beliefs and useless rituals are opposite of deen of Islam and by adopting such stupidity the ummah has lost its rightful place in the world. To regain its lost rightful place in the world deen of Islam and its proper understanding and faithful following is the only way or as time goes on ummah will keep on facing tougher and tougher situations that will ruin it yet more.  
 
Let us take first thing first. In the writings above I am offering an alternative fact based explanation to what mullahs have been feeding us over the centuries ie many made up stories about the verses of the Quran as to what they mean. To validate or legitimise their nonsense they attributed their stories to the prophet of Allah because otherwise they had to answer the question how did they come to know what they tell us and that needed a lot of hard work in form of research and exploration for explanation which mullahs are not bothered with. With this set up they managed to fool the ignorant and the simple minded but this sort of approach does not wash with people who are better informed. Why not? Because it is the truth that can be proven true through verification not the falsehood. Even if one attributed anything to God or his messenger or his scripture it has to stand to reason and consistency test to prove valid. It is because words attributed to God still need to be explained and understood how did they get their meanings which people say they have. These meanings still need to be rooted in reality otherwise they mean nothing at all. In other words, words need to be connected to the real world realities for their proper understanding because people cannot understand them otherwise and this is why the Quran uses reality based explanation after explanation as examples to help humanity understand things. It is because otherwise it is like someone is talking to them in a language they never knew. This is how falsehood can be caught through testing. This is why it is possible for humanity to say what can or cannot be from God with reasonable certainty.  
 
The second thing is that I am not including criticism of stories told by mullahs because that is a not proper use of my time at the moment otherwise I could have dismantled mullahs' stupidity and then put forth my explanation. Moreover had I done that then writings will have become yet more cumbersome. In order to help one understand my approach let me ask one, what is origin of your knowledge? How did you come to know things that you know? You will see that one has no choice but to agree that our knowledge comes from our brains and senses therefore it is based upon our life experiences. This is why our knowledge is factual. Now this being the case, can we therefore claim that any other knowledge can be as factual as that about the past or future or anything we did not experience directly? No. This is why be it any of the Vedas, the Avesta, the Bible, the Quran or the Hadith etc etc it is only some collected information passed down to us generation after generation. We cannot be certain about its truth unless we devise a way to test things and they prove reliable or true.  
 
So any information through any third party is dependent upon a reasonably reliable testing method for its reliability value or validity. This is why we cannot use any Hadith report for anything till we are reasonably sure it is true and historical sources are yet more problematic unless we have archaeological evidences to back them up ie in some cases we do need corroboratory evidences. Our personal interpretations of facts are always much more powerful than any other source of information if they are logically consistent and sound. This is why when we explain facts and they make sense then they prove to us sufficiently reliable. It is because the world in which we are born works according to set laws as I have explained it in the main explanation. This is why anything that contradicts known facts cannot be true at all even if it is attributed to God because God is not expected to tell us nonsense. Since proving originality of the Quranic text is of utmost importance therefore explanations that prove the text of Quran original cannot be contradicted by mere make beliefs handed down to us by our ancestors be they in the name of Allah or his messenger etc.  
 
Now if we look at the copies of the Quran that are still existing from different times and places and they are many in numbers and they can be carbon dated, we can see how people wrote the Quranic text in them. In these copies of the Quran there are no such variations as we are told in the Hadith books. Should we accept what is before our own eyes or should we accept Hadith reports? Instead of justifying the kind of variations we find in the copies of the Quran on basis of scribal errors in hand written copies or printing errors in printed copies or book binding errors where that is applicable etc etc, it is claimed Allah revealed the Quran with textual variations. Can one believe that Allah who wanted to unite humanity will give people a recipe for divisions? Because variant text are foundation for divisions and that is why the Quran tells us that if it was from other than Allah we ought to find many things in there at variance with each other or differences and discrepancies therein. This is why such Hadith reports are misinterpreted or false because they or their interpretations were invented to provide justifications for variations in the Quranic text in the existing copies of the Quran. This means these people were not aware of the facts how languages developed over time and this is why there are variations in all major languages because they heavily relied on each other for their origin, development and progress. My explanation explains away all these variations in a way that is backed by archaeological findings and it is fully consistent logically.  
 
Allah did reveal the Quran in one uniform reading and in one uniform writing but people spoke and wrote a language as I explained it and they did that because that is the way languages came about and developed. One has to realise that Allah despite variations in the human languages managed to reveal the message that was uniform both in sense of memorised information and in form of written text. Hadith reports at most are mere historical accounts which were written by individuals for their own reasons so if they telly with facts they are ok but if not then just because they are based on isnaad (chains of narrators) does not make them sound in every way on their own. Particularly if they contradict facts before us. Justifying variations in the Quranic text is in fact attacking the authenticity of the Quran at its very root.  
 
The Quranic text is as solid as a rock and that is why I proved it by showing how Arabic language came about and developed over time with help of its ancestor and sister languages. One cannot find any evidence of Arabic language being in use before Hebrew but if anyone has any evidence please let us see it. In fact Hebrew as far as I know is ancestor of Arabic not its descendent. If anything Hebrew is thousands of years older than Arabic. Mullahs tell us prophet Adam used to speak Arabic in paradise and that he was the very first human being. It is because no mullah has carried out any research and exploration to discover things the Quran talks about otherwise we Muslims will not be in the state of ignorance and stupidity that we are but we are not going to accept it, are we? It is because if we accept we lack in factual knowledge because we never carried out any research and exploration work to discover things then who is going to carry out needed research and exploration work that validate the Quran because it is all haraam since all knowledge is already in the Quran and the Hadith regardless we need to know it or not. It is enough to say we believe and we don't need to verify anything to have faith based on reasoning that is logically consistent.  
 
As far as I know, Arabic is a most recent of the root based widely known languages otherwise the copies of the Quran we have today will have been written in a better way right from the day one. No dots on letters is proof of Arabic not being developed fully yet for mass communication and publication. This is why we needed hufaaz of the Quran as well as its scribes so that with help of each other they could preserve the Quranic text as it was supposed to be and they did and we can see it with our own eyes even today. Relationship between memorising and scribing eased as better way of writing was discovered in due course so later copies had in them what earlier copies did not ie dots and diacritical marks. Even today if an Arab did not already have the Quran committed to his memory he will not be able to read it if dots were not there in the text. In fact one cannot read even the daily newspaper written in such a style of writing let alone the Quran despite the fact that it is their mother language. The same will happen in case of Urdu and Farsi languages. So can we see why we have no choice but to accept Arabic was not an old language just because some ignorant mullah says so having nothing solid to back it up with. Why is it that we find a lot of inscriptions in Hebrew and various other languages but not any in Arabic if Arabic was the oldest language as our mullahs tell us? It means our historical accounts have been either invented in some cases or that they have been deliberately misinterpreted by mullahs to suit themselves or both. So if we want to be true to our deen of Islam we must give up mullahs' nonsense or as time goes on we will end up proving ourselves our own worst enemies.  
 
This is why we must come to know that to rely on information that does not fit proper explanation is not the right way to look at things. Also if people differ about something they can never become united again unless there is something there to unite them. This is why if Muslims were already divided after the messenger of Allah passed away about the text of the Quran then no one could unite them merely by force. If they remained united about it, it is only because they agreed upon program, goals and guidelines provided by the Quran. However if we say that the Quranic text itself became a source of controversy then divisions based upon different Qurans could only increase not decrease with time. Today Muslims are fighting with each other only over interpretations of the Quran, imagine what could have happened if anyone had tried deliberately to change the actual text of the Quran in any way. Because things did not go bad in the ummah on basis of deliberate changes in the text of the Quran as will be expected back then due to some people trying to make deliberate changes in the Quranic text, it is proof enough that no one even tried to eliminate any existing controversy over the variations in the actual text of the Quran. So can one see why knowing the truth about the originality of the Quranic text is of such vital importance. This solid explanation shows that some Hadith reports have been mistaken, invented or misinterpreted to undermine the originality of the Quran and its authenticity therefore such accounts are unreliable in themselves so they cannot be used against the originality of the Quran to undermine it.  
 
Coming to miracles, what miracle is more important than Allah dropping the Quran from the heavens in hands of each and every person in perfect state? If we have such problems with the Quran itself then what other miracle can be justified? None. If any miracle was ever needed at all it was people having all the things they needed to preserve the revelations of God perfectly as they were revealed from day one. When the Quran tells us Allah taught man reading and writing, it doe not mean Allah became a human being and made Adam sit in his lap like a child and taught him things like a child. It only means he provided human beings with things of need and abilities to learn by observing what Allah had created already before human beings appeared on the scene. So people had all they needed for learning and teaching and doing whatever they were supposed to do to fulfil the purpose of Allah for which he created them. All this involved natural processes or cause and effect chains and no miracles or supernatural interventions.  
 
There is no point in going on other issues till one fully accepts the Quran is original with full understanding as to what makes it original. It takes time to absorb information to reach the depth of understanding needed for proving the Quran original. This is why I explain things and leave people to ponder over the explanation rather than confronting them because that is not the way of doing things according to the Quran. Wisdom takes time to make its way into minds of people and to make its presence felt but only if a person wants to become a wise person and makes the needed effort. Just because mullahs tell us the Quran says Allah guides and Allah misguides does not mean they are telling us the truth because they may not even know what it means themselves. Allah guides through his revelations and mankind guide themselves by enabling themselves to be able to receive guidance from the revelations of Allah by educating themselves to the level required for that purpose. All this does not happen instantly. It is also very important that one realises the fact that Arabic is based on multi root based words as I have already explained it with solid reasons in the main article. I also explained in detail why words have very many meanings in root based languages including Arabic. So if any report does not fit this explanation, it is not worth paying attention to and perhaps it was a mistake or invention to make an attempt at trying to make the text of the Quran controversial. In any case no such report can succeed against stated concrete facts.  
 
The idea that the messenger of Allah was illiterate is monstrous because it shows Allah chose for his work someone not worthy of it and that Allah did not choose other more able people for his mission at the time. Again as I already explained, mullahs wanted to prove miracles by portraying the prophet as an illiterate person because they had no idea at all that the Quran is not a human work due to the information it contains. Instead of understanding the text of the Quran they looked for cheap miracles ie here is a book from an illiterate man. They had no sense to realise that even an illiterate man could have been given a written book by someone else who was literate so how does having a book regardless in memory or in writing prove its God's word? It is because any information that comes from human beings cannot go beyond the knowledge of human beings at any given time. It is because the Quran goes beyond human knowledge of all times that is why it is not work of human beings.  
 
One has to read the verse which mullahs tell us means, if Allah had revealed the Quran on a mountain it will have shattered into pieces out of fear of Allah. The point is, Allah already spoke to all things when he planned them and said be and nothing shattered but the universe came into being. The actual thing the verse is telling us is very different ie should Allah reveal the truth in the Quran to any highly knowledgeable person who wishes to know it, he will be humbled due to what it contains because the knowledge in the Quran is beyond that which a human being could come up with. This is very difficult to prove for mullahs so mullahs thought let us turn to made up stories of miracles to prove the deen of Islam true. This is how they moved ummah away from proper deen of Islam and its practice and people who were leaders of the human world gradually turned like animals lagging far, far behind rest of the human world.  
 
It is therefore time to retrace our steps back to the original deen of Islam which was brought by all the messengers of Allah right from the time of prophet Adam till the time of prophet Muhammad. There is no more book or messenger from Allah after him and this is the concrete proof. It is because there is no any prototype new language in the world that could parallel ancient languages in which olden scriptures were revealed just like the Quran. The Quran even today is far, far ahead of its time if we learned to read it as it should be read for its proper understanding to fulfil its purpose.  
 
Root based languages were good for revelations of Allah due to their flexibility as I explained already in detail because fixed languages could not accommodate divine messages due to their precision. It is a fact that root based languages are very flexible not non-root based languages. Since the Quran was for much longer time than any other revealed scripture therefore it needed most flexible language that it could get at the time. Some Arabic roots have thousands of meanings not just one or two. Likewise there are thousands of words that could be used to express the very same idea. This is why as humanity develops and discovers more and more facts people will be able to interpret the Quranic verses more and more precisely. So the discussion about the originality of the text of the Quran has much, much more for us to learn from than we can think of. I hope this addresses our concerns about the issue of originality of the text of the Quran as well as finality of the prophethood of the final messenger of Allah. The Quran is not a history book because if Allah told history of the universe and things in it in detail then that will have filled the world with volumes of books which people could never even read so what will be the point in Allah telling us all that we could never know no matter what? This is why he never even told us names of all the prophets and their books and places they were sent to and works they did etc etc.  
 
Deen of Islam is based upon educating each other to help each other understand the message of God and to turn it into a reality. However violence is present in our world so one has to learn how the Quran explains it to put it into its proper context. I have explained things in detail in my writings here for that reason so that people could see how things fit together. Moreover one can see my interpretation of the Quranic text for better understanding of things, so for anyone who wishes to know the message of the Quran it will be a good idea to see what I have explained already and what I have left out. All issues which we think only need a short answer in a word or two does not work because each person who explains things sees them in his own context.  
 
I am mainly discussing origin of knowledge and how we get it. For example, could we learn anything without having brains? Could our brains learn anything without having senses? Could our senses be useful if the conditions needed for them to work were not present? For example for a human eye to work we need light as well to see and we also need things which the eye could see otherwise what will be the point of having a brain or an eye or light etc if there was nothing there for eye to see? The same will be the case for all other things we sense with our senses. For things to be useful there has to be a grand plan in the mind of the creator so that each and everything in the plan comes together nicely in its real form or shape as well.  
 
This is why I am explaining human beings could not learn anything if they did not have life experiences to help them learn and keep building upon their banks of information and their understanding. For example what will be the point of giving a new born baby a book to read when he does not even have the awareness of his own very existence yet? So first thing we need is self awareness and for that we do not need revelation of God but only our brains, senses, bodies and provisions so that by fooling about with things in our own environments we become aware of ourselves as well as other things through our interaction with them. Only after becoming self aware and aware of other things our attention is drawn to higher being when we think about origin of things, their existence and purpose as well as the way they work to fulfil that purpose. This is the time when we look for information that we cannot get through our own senses alone or merely by calculations of our own brains.  
 
Once we realise there is more to life than meets the eyes, we start looking for information that could satisfy our curiosities. From here on people take various routes ie some look for God by so called spiritual methods to see if they could experience presence of God that way and others look for messages from God. Those who do not become self aware or aware of real world realities they are not bothered by the idea of existence of God at all because they have not reached the stage of thinking which initiates this kind of search process in minds of people. So if you are not looking for God then you are not going to find him. It is because you only find what you look for and you look for what you think needs to be looked for, for which you use the right methods or ways. Most people therefore remain at animal level of thinking or even worse ie they are born ignorant and remain ignorant, illiterate, uneducated, untrained, unskilled and unthinking therefore useless for themselves as well as others or even worse they cause troubles for themselves as well as others.  
 
What this explanation should make people realise is the fact that so long as people remain at animal level of their existence, their mindset, attitude and behaviour is such that it is only fit for animal kind of life. This is why as human beings evolved from tree of life first they were only humans in their physical appearance but not in sense of mind. This is why they lived on basis of survival of the fittest. However interaction between people made them learn from each other as well as other existing things by observing them and so people have been gradually building on that knowledge and have been changing their mindset, attitude and behaviour accordingly. Since people originally behaved like animals or worst so obviously they inflicted each other with terrible harms and destructions. All this helped them learn and be better and when they reached self awareness and awareness about other things God sent them revelations in order to guide them from then onwards when they could make use of that knowledge after learning how to read and write. Since then knowledgeable people have been trying to get others to see sense and stop living like animals. However, people are people so they are still at it but time will come when human beings will be what God created them to be ie great creatures manifesting glory of their creator. All this unfolding of plan of God is going to take time just like a huge tree that grows out of a tiny seed gradually.  
 
Here one may ask but why God did not create people fully knowing things already? To understand the answer one has to learn why God created things and human beings in the first place. It is because God is a living being and he wanted to express himself so he decided to express himself in forms of creations and revelations. Since God wanted to be appreciated by effort of things themselves so he created human beings with abilities to learn and do things as they pleased and created all else to facilitated mankind in doing that. Since people had to know about God by their own efforts rather than being programmed robots they were given the ability of choice for this purpose so being born totally ignorant they had to learn each and everything from scratch. To help people God created all other kinds of non-living things as well as living things such a plants and animals and programmed them to a much greater degree than human beings and gave human beings ability to observe other things to learn from and by doing that people have been learning and doing things ever since. In a way God has given people other things as toys to play with and learn just like we people give our children toys to play with and learn. As people learned more and more, they appreciated God and humanity as well as other created things more and more so they continue. This is why science is part of the Quranic text and this is how it is part of the Quranic philosophy because the Quran tells people to observe nature and things in it to learn from that and do things that need to be done as detailed in the Quran so that goals set by God for people could be fulfilled by people according to his provided guidelines.  
 
All this should help one understand the origin of violence ie God created things for various purposes and when they act as they choose to act violence could result because that is the way world is created by God to function so that the purpose of God for creating the world could become fulfilled. It is not God who is carrying out violence but things he created act that way however he provided them with means to be able to do so if they so chose. So even though God does not want people to hurt each other but some people who remain ignorant about revelation of God think otherwise and or disregard his guidance. As such people decide to continue living like animals because they do not know any better and they do not want to know any better therefore those people who have become learned also are forced to control antisocial elements in human society by use of force where that becomes necessary. If such people do nothing at all then things will be yet worse than they are just like leaving kids to do as they please in a play ground without setting any rules for them and without anyone monitoring them in any way. This is the context in which the Quran explains existence of violence in the world. In case of animals, things are created such that they do not have parts of brain which lead to feeling of pain when hurt like people do due to having much more complex and sophisticated brain. If things other than people also had as developed brains as people then they could have accomplished same things as people long before human beings because they have been in existence for much longer period of time than people.  
 
All this needs detailed explanation and understanding therefore people should go through my interpretation of the Quran so that they could see how to make sense of the Quranic text in its proper context in light of real world realities. God has created man in his own image ie a little God like intelligent being if you like. Glory of God will become manifest in due course as humanity prepares itself for establishing many great things yet unthinkable by using the available raw materials in the universe. We may think we know quite a lot but our knowledge is much less than our generations to come who are going to stand upon our shoulders and reach the skies yet unknown to mankind. Human being are created to travel throughout the universe to see creation of their creator and see how wonderfully powerful creator he is. One day man will grow up mentally so much that he will witness glory of his creator with his own eyes through his own creativity. The Quran is such a book that is yet unknown for what it actually contains in its pages. It is because the people who claim to be its followers are not yet learned enough to be able to understand it properly themselves and explain it to others faithfully. The day they become a learned people in actual reality things will be very different. The Quran is like no other scripture in the world as I understand it. This is why people will find a lot of help in my interpretation of the Quran if they went through it. Particularly the way people should try to make sense of the Quranic text.  
 
The Quran and Hadis literature is misinterpreted and misrepresented by mullahs on behest of rulers and money lenders to stop people from thinking and taking appropriate actions for ensuring well being of mankind and to stop such element in human society as use people abusively instead of ensuring its well being.  
 
So far I am explaining the main arguments and points about the Quran and deen of Islam before going into detailed explanation of the Quranic text itself.  
 
Why I needed to do that is because there are three approaches in the world to issue of God and revelation of God. These three approaches are; a)deen of Islam based approach; b) religion based approach and c)secularism based approach. Each of these approaches use scientific and philosophical explanations in order to deny existence of God and existence of revelation of God or to affirm existence of God and existence of revelation of God.  
 
The question is, what is the difference between deen of Islam and religion and secularism? Deen of Islam is a way of life that can lead mankind to blissful, dignified and secure existence in this world as well as in hereafter as a proper human community on the basis of guidance of Allah. Religion is anti deen of Islam because it misleads humanity in the very name of God by telling people materialism is evil so people should stay away from it whereas the fact is, human beings are material beings and their survival in this world is 100% dependent upon material things in this world eg to breathe they need fresh air, to eat they need good food, to drink they need fresh water, so how can people be non-materialists? In short for people religion means to be Godly at the expense of materialism which is anti deen of Islam concept. Secularism is anti deen of Islam because it leads people away from idea of God altogether in the name of good life in this world which it cannot deliver due to being based upon the way of life founded upon personal gains at the expense of each other. This is how both religion and secularism end up isolating people from each other and turn them into each other's rivals and enemies and the animosity between people gives rise to hatred between them and that leads them to wars between themselves with no end in sight.  
 
The real thing which we human beings need to understand is the fact that it is not possible for mankind to leave God for materialism or materialism for God and this is where in comes deen of Islam because it tells mankind to follow guidance of Allah and be real materialists. How is that possible? It is possible because basically all Allah is asking mankind in the Quran is to use his provisions properly according to his guidance and then use all that is provided to accomplish other higher goals which i will explain as we go through the Quranic text. Therefore so long as people use what Allah has created for them to use the way they are told by him it is fine to use it. One has to look into the Quran and see how many times the Quran uses word SHUKR in it and what this word means in the context of the Quran. All this will become clear in due course as my work on the Quran progresses with time.  
 
It is because my work is for making a concrete case for the truth of deen of Islam therefore I not only need to explain things about the Quran and deen of Islam in detail but my methods as well whereby I prove the claims the Quran makes eg I have explained in my above writings why the Quran is the way it is and whether it has been changed or original etc etc. This explains whether whatever concepts people claim to have in their minds about deen of Islam are right or wrong because they either ensure well being of mankind or their own destruction by hands of each other.  
 
The point I am making in my writings is clear that we humans need to have a solid common foundation before we could build anything on it. In other words what is common foundation between me and you or for that matter between any two people to base their discussions or interaction upon? It is not the right way to take a point just out of nowhere and start discussing it and waste our valuable time over it as most of us do at each and every opportunity. We must start right from the start and end at the very end to reach a proper destination or end goal if we wish to know the truth as a whole about deen of Islam.  
 
For example, evolution itself is a meaningless concept unless we base it upon existence of God. If we say there is no God then the question is what is our proof for saying there is no God? More important is the point whether we know what the word proof means in any particular context. If not people should first learn such important things before getting involved in any kind of arguments over anything let alone getting involved in arguments over the Quran or deen of Islam. Why knowing such things is important? It is because if one does not explain clearly what one's understanding is about something to others then people do not know where one is standing or is coming from so each time one side talks, it by passes the other. This is why one has to explain what is meant by proof in one's mind so that others too have an idea what one is trying to explain to others and why or how it is supposed to make sense to others. This line of reasoning has to continue till we have a common point at which we have a complete agreement because then we cannot disagree any more at that point.  
 
For example, only after clearly deciding whether there is a possibility of existence of God or not we can move forward from that point on to whether there is a possibility of God sending his revelation or not in order to inform or guide people about his plan and purpose.  
 
No scientist or philosopher that I know of claims there is no possibility of existence God at all. All people who say there is no God say so in a roundabout way ie they say, there is no Hindu God, there is no Parsi God, there is no Jewish God, there is no Christian God, there is no Muslim God and so on. When one questions such people why do they say so? Their answer is because Vedas have mistakes in them, Avesta has mistakes in it, Torah has mistakes in it, the Gospels are full of mistakes and the same they say about the Quran. Since all scriptures that are allegedly God sent have errors in them as they see it therefore what else can they conclude from that other than the conclusion they draw that there is no God because they have no clue from God himself if there really is one or not. In general all people deep inside accept possibility of existence of God but only deny existence of a particular God and they do so because they are not happy with the sort of concepts people hold about that God on basis of their scripture.  
 
In short as explained already if as a normal human being I cannot know directly if there is a God or not then how can anyone else but how can we human beings eliminate possibility of God making himself known to us? The fact is there is no concrete way to eliminate possibility of existence of God and his revelation and since we accept such possibilities then how can we come to know if these possibilities have been made real or not ie God has revealed his message or not? This is why we must therefore make all necessary efforts to examine the allegedly God sent scriptures properly to the best of our abilities to settle this issue once and for all.  
 
My way of looking at this issue is very different from the rest. I am instead studying the scriptures myself in light of concrete realities rather than relying on wrong interpretations of the scriptures and arguing over those wrong interpretations.  
 
I am challenging people to provide me with evidences that what they claim about the scriptures is in actual fact true. They can only do so if they also have studied the real world realities as well as the scriptures by themselves the way I explain things. Unless people study scriptures the way I explain in detail, they can never know what the scriptures actually say in them therefore to claim anything is wrong in them is merely an empty claim based on ignorance about them.  
 
The Quran for example is very clear that Allah originated energy and matter and from that he evolved all the galaxies full of stars and planets in them. The point I am making is Allah did not create anything directly as it is rather he created each thing from its already existing parent thing. Had Allah created man directly by saying be and it was as mullahs will tell us then why does he say he created all living things from water or that he created man from dust etc etc? What is Quran trying to tell us when it tells us nothing in this world is created by God directly other than matter or energy (by matter I mean energy in frozen form because when we break down matter into its smallest particles energy is released)? Instead he tells us he created all things from each other and that is why we accept the cause and effect chain. The earth came from a star and so did the sun and the rest of planets in our solar system for example. The earth then brought forth life in a simple form which became complex over a period of time like a tiny seed grows into a huge tree. Allah did this by setting up all necessary systems and laws to make things happen as he planned and designed things by way of unfolding of a process of creation. He did all this because he says he had a purpose in mind to do all this, this way.  
 
The evolution of things as explained by the Quran 1400 plus years ago is what we can observe and explain but not the evolution on its own. It is because we get stuck with the idea of origin of things from nothingness. God did not come to existence from nothingness because he was always there. This can be explained rationally because each thing that has a beginning has to have an ancestor from which it could come to existence. If things have a beginning then it is necessary that they come from something that is already in existence which has no beginning. This is why God is God and created things are creation.  
 
If one says there is no God then one has to explain origin of matter. Not only that but one also has to explain how did matter designed itself into a perfectly working universe which shows involvement of some sort of intelligence. If we accept matter itself was capable of all this then we are replacing one form of God by another, that is all we are doing instead of eliminating the idea of God which is our chief objective therefore we enter into a self defeating argument or situation. So are we not back to square one then in that case if we refuse to accept possibility of existence of God? Because instead of God we are turning matter into a God in that case so what has changed? This is why such arguments make no sense whatsoever and the idea that God exists cannot be eliminated no matter how hard we try to get ourselves rid of it. This is why the need for proper examination of the scriptures that are said to be revealed by God for mankind to guide them.  
 
This is why I am going to explain in detail what the text of the Quran tells us but before I do that I need to explain in detail about origin and development of human language so that people could clearly see origin of words and their meanings. The question is, why it is absolutely necessary for me to get into that detailed explanation? It is because people have no idea how people wrote dictionaries for languages and they use them as references in order to try and contradict the Quran.  
 
There are plenty of such people who when you tell them meanings of words they say, no, they do not mean that because those meanings of those words are not in the dictionary. I want people to open up and think how people wrote dictionaries in the first place and what purpose they have been serving for mankind since then. Moreover they should become aware of the fact that words of God could not and cannot be limited by limits of human knowledge this is why Allah made sure his message remained in existence in the world with all its necessities. He ensured not only preservation of the text of his message but its meanings as well. The question is, how did he do that? By way of preserving the original human language. As I have explained already how human language came about and developed let us look at it in a bit more detail starting with Arabic alphabet set as to how it came about. First of all there are 28 letters in Arabic alphabet set eg alif, baa, taa, saa, jeem haa, khaa, daal, zaal, raa, zaa, seen, sheen, swaad, dwaad, twaa, zwaa, ain, ghain, faa, qaaf, kaaf, laam , meem noon, haa, wow and yaa. All these letters can be traced back in time as being part of other languages as sounds and meaningful words based on their pictures that are found in ancient inscriptions. At least 22 of these letters are traceable through Hebrew and the rest six through other languages including Egyptian hieroglyphs and Ugarit symbols. Sumerian, Nabatean, Sinaic, Musnad, Jazm, Canaanite, Greek, Aramaic and Syriac etc. Musnad writing symbols are parents of current Arabic eg Safvee, Samoodi, Lihyaani, Sabayee and Mutasil etc.  
 
If we look at earlier Arabic letter symbols they look very different from what they are today. It is because people have been modifying letter symbols throughout human history for one reason or another. Likewise Arabic letter symbols were also modified with time and so there was no fix shape for these letters till after beginning of Christian era. This is why Arabic writing was still very limited by its symbols at the time of revelation of the Quran as I have already explained in detail. Same letter symbol was used for various letters and then soon the idea of dots was used in order to distinguish letters from each other. All this happened after the revelation of the Quran when Muslims felt the need for easing the reading of the Arabic text of the Quran by individuals. Originally letters were given different shapes to distinguish them from each other but that was not enough so later on dots were used in different places with the already existing shapes of letters to further distinguish the remaining letters. This happened soon after the death of the prophet within a generation or two ie within early first Islamic century.  
 
Alphabet set letters can be traced back and forth in time but important point to note is that as development of language is traced back in time number of letters in the alphabet set generally decrease and that is why what we have in a later language as a set of letters is more in numbers of letters than the earlier language eg ancient Arabic has more than a few letters more than ancient Hebrew. It is also possible that a later language has less number of letters than earlier due to lack of further developments in a people who spoke the later language which give reason for changes in a language in one sense or another.  
 
Arabic language is a root based language and so were its ancestor languages however as we go back in time the number of letters in a set of roots decreases eg in general most Arabic words have three letters in their roots but earlier human languages have only two and even earlier only one.  
 
It is because regardless whatever the language it all started with body language or gestures or sign language and from a single sign to multiple signs due to need for expressing more ideas about more things through more signs just like a baby starts from one thing and then builds on that and keeps on building till he develops all the vocabulary he needs for expressions of his thoughts in his mind. So the original human language is sign language which gave rise to idea of sounds or words that became names of things and their descriptions or what they did or how they did it etc etc. This is how came about a fully functioning human language from various prototype languages.  
 
Since people used words for naming things so letters were symbols for those signs and sounds and that is why alphabet set letters are meaningful words, phrases, sentences and full explanations. Just one letter was sufficient to express the whole or complete idea in one's mind in original human language just like a baby uses a sign or sound and parents understand fully what he means due to their experience with him. Just crying of a baby alerts parents something is wrong so they attend to his crying and over a period of time they realise his needs due to which he cries. This become a language or means of communication between parents and their children. The very same happens among human beings at a wider scale whereby people communicate with each other using signs or gestures and sounds and symbols etc.  
 
These points are of utmost importance to be aware of because they are the foundation for interpretation of what God says to people in his revelations and what it could mean. It will explain to us why translations and interpretations of the Quran which are not based on this information could be wrong and should not be relied upon one hundred percent. Also knowing basic facts about the origin and development of human language itself enables a person to make one’s own judgements about things in a better way.  
 
Since alphabet set is a combination of letters that are meaningful words the question is what do they mean? Here is what the Arabic alphabet set letters mean with a single meaning though they have multiple meanings which I will explain in detail later as we go along. ALIF=bull, BAA=tent, TAA=womb, SAA=framework, JEEM=camel, HAA=fence, KHAA=unsound foundation, DAAL=door, ZAAL=barrier, RAA=head, ZAA=tool, SEEN=tooth, SHEEN=fighting, SWAAD=tree, DWAAD=to draw a dividing line, TWAA=landmark, ZWAA=lamb, AIN=eye, GHAIN=tall and narrow structure, FAA=mouth, QAAF=monkey, KAAF=palm of hand, LAAM=ox-goad, MEEM=water, NOON=fish, HAA=window, WOW=hook, YAA=hand.  
 
The study of origin and development of human language is though not complete yet still it is the best way of trying to decode message of God for humanity. It is only a matter of time before many more people get involved in this like projects and produce worthwhile results for people to benefit from. As I have already explained, originally people could see and hear things but they could not communicate them by speaking and writing to each other. However in due course they became aware of their body language and then from that they came up with idea of sign language and then coded signs with sounds and later with pictures of things and that is how they gradually developed talking and writing and reading. God revealed his message to mankind only once they had developed the language in order to understand his message and to preserve it. Originally they could only communicate with each other about concrete realities that is why they named only those things that were concrete realities. This is how words came about but how did the words get their meanings or what was the mechanism or method whereby they gave meanings to words?  
 
They simply looked at the thing they named and began to describe it as to what is was or how useful it was or what it could be used for or what it could do etc etc. This is how came about what we call groups of grammatical terms eg nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions etc etc. For example, people looked at the eye and they figured out what it did ie the eye could see, it was something very helpful for them, it could tell them when people were hurt because it cried tears etc etc. This is how word AIN in Arabic means an eye as well as a water source eg sea, river, stream canal, well or spring etc. Likewise it means help, assistance, support or pillar or beam or aid etc etc. This is the mechanism whereby ancient people derived meanings for words and built their vocabulary. Vocabulary was not built only for words but for body language as well as sign language because people could not communicate each and everything using the very same sign as already explained in detail.  
 
This is why each and every word contains all shades of its meanings regardless we have discovered it or not or we are aware of it or not. I needed to explain these details about origin and development of human language so that when a person tells us this word means this or that one does not disagree if the word fits the way language has developed or evolved. This fully answers objections of scientists against the Quran who when they are told about science in the Quran they start laughing and say, why did you people not see this information back in time. You people are only giving new meanings to words after we have discovered these facts today. It shows how scientists look at the Quran and its message and whether they are right or wrong and if they are right why and if they wrong why. This explanation about language leaves no room for escape for anyone regardless one is for the Quran or against the Quran.  
 
God is God so he talks about things as he knows them about which people are not necessarily aware so when people come to that stage of their learning process then they too come to know what God has explained to them in his words. Knowing all this means when a person who has reached such a stage of learning and he tells us this is what the scripture means regarding something we should not accuse such a person of lying to us because of our own ignorance about what he is telling us.  
 
This is most common criticism of Muslims by nonMuslims when a Muslim tells them about science in the Quran. They cannot imagine the Quran could be so scientific and so philosophical about things.  
 
This way of looking at things therefore radically changes perspective on deen of Islam and the Quran.  
 
 
Why there arose the need for explaining the Quran in detail one will realise after going through some of the following links.
