  • …A man can have nothing, except what he strives for.
    (53:39)

  • But had your Lord so willed, all who are on the earth would have believed in your message — each one of them and all of them together. Will you, then, be the one to compel people to faith so that they become believers, O Prophet? It is not for any soul to believe except by God’s permission. Thus He shall bring chastisement upon those who do not use their reason to understand the signs of God.
    (10:99-100)

  • The Qur’an cannot be translated….The book is here rendered almost literally and every effort has been made to choose befitting language. But the result is not the Glorious Qur’an, that inimitable symphony, the very sounds of which move men to tears and ecstasy. It is only an attempt to present the meaning of the Qur’an-and peradventure something of the charm in English. It can never take the place of the Qur’an in Arabic, nor is it meant to do so.

  • You cannot simply read the Quran, not if you take it seriously. You either have surrendered to it already or you fight it. It attacks tenaciously, directly, personally; it debates, criticizes, shames, and challenges. From the outset it draws the line of battle, and I was on the other side. I was at a severe disadvantage, for it became clear that the Author knew me better than I knew myself. The Quran was always way ahead of my thinking; it was erasing barriers I had built years ago and was addressing my queries.
