What is Holy Quran?

This week, for the first time, Holy Quran Reading. Christians and Muslims on two continents have gathered under one roof to celebrate what they believe to be one of the world’s most important books. Holy Quran Reading But while Muslims praise it as the divine word of God, they disagree about what the text says about God.

Who is God? Muslims believe that God is a single being who is all-knowing, all-powerful, and perfect. Holy Quran Reading To Muslims, he has no gender, no age, and no beginning.

Muslims believe that their God is one of three celestial beings with different functions, often referred to as the guardians. God, the father is Al-Rahman, the exalted father, and God the Son is Al-`Aziz, the benevolent son. God the Mother is Al-Israal or the she-dragon.

So how did this fundamental set of beliefs come about? They are said to have come about by the Prophet Muhammad himself.

The Islamic prophet went up to the summit of Mount Arafat in Mecca and recited a couplet to the heavens: “My Lord and my God, Who will guide me to the Straight Way? And Who will lead me to the Presence of the Throne of Justice? Who will guide me to the Straight Way?”

Muslims believe that this was the prophet’s revelation to his Lord.

At that moment, Muslims say, Holy Quran Reading. God agreed that there would never be any conflict between man and his deity.

“The Quran explains that we should consider God’s attributes as pure and absolute. If we use human logic, we find that they are. Holy Quran Reading. God is beyond human laws and, so, is everything else,” said Suhaib Saleem, an Islamic scholar.

One of the most significant areas where Muslims differ about God is his creation of the world and humankind. Holy Quran Reading. Muslims believe that God created humans from clay. On the other hand, Christians believe that God created Adam from the dust of the earth.

What is the creator of the heavens and earth like?

“God is not like other humans,” Saleem said. “He’s infinite, indescribable, and omnipresent, so his attributes cannot be defined. So he cannot be called masculine or feminine. God cannot be analyzed by human intellect, but instead is explained only by revelation.”

How many days is he with his creation?

“God created the heavens and the earth in six 24-hour days. But since the day we are celebrating today is the Eid al-Fitr, the holiday commemorating the end of Ramadan, we are going by the Islamic lunar calendar, which calculates the length of days differently than the lunar calendar,” said Saleem. “In Islam, the Muslim calendar is used to mark the Islamic years.”

As for the state of nature, Muslims believe that all-powerful God created mankind in the Garden of Eden as “shareholders” in the earth. Holy Quran ReadingAccording to Islam, Adam and Eve disobeyed God and broke his commandment to not eat from the tree of knowledge.

For that transgression, God sent down a plague of locusts who stole man’s food and exposed him to temptation. In response, Adam and Eve were cast out of the garden. In the seventh century, Muslims believe that God sent a messenger named Ishmael to tell them that they must return to the land of the living if they wanted to be saved.

So God is cold-hearted?

“All right, but God also commands us to love each other,” Saleem said. “Even when a Muslim is killing another Muslim, he says he’s doing it to save him. If he truly believed that he should be killed, he wouldn’t obey the commands of God. So, no, I don’t think God is coldhearted.”

How can a dead person communicate with God?

“What is really unusual about God is that he is, in fact, present in everyone and in everyone, he is everywhere,” Saleem said. “If a person dies and is buried, and he believes that he will be resurrected, he will be reborn, like we are reborn from one birth to another.

God can be anywhere at any time. He doesn’t have a permanent home. He’s everywhere, and when you think of God, think of God not as a faraway God, but think of him as present with you all the time.”

To Muslims, he is also omnipresent. In their words, the prophet Muhammad said, “If God is sitting in a corner of a room and you sit at the other end of the room, you can hear his voice in a distance.”

All of this makes many Christians and Jews a little uncomfortable.

“I have never met a Muslim who actually says that Islam is a fair and just religion, because of the problems that are present with Muslims and their treatment of people of other faiths,” said Brian Daniels, a psychologist and a member of the State University of New York at New Paltz faculty of philosophy and religion.

“The fact that God can do anything and can do everything, and if we can’t understand his ways and the nature of his will, we are to be shunned and considered as unfaithful, is so far from the Christian and Jewish belief that anyone who tries to apply that to their own religions is missing the point and gets in their own way.”

What is the basic rule of prayer in Islam?

“In the holy Quran, the first thing that Allah tells us to do when we pray is to bow down before him, to call him by his name, ‘O Lord.’ And we don’t pray with any form of affirmation or negation, or telling him what we want,” Saleem said.

“It’s very much about thankfulness and supplication. After that, he gives us guidance on how to pray, what to do, and how to bow. After that, the rest is up to us. If we get stuck somewhere, we can always go back to his word and keep on praying until we come to a place of clarity.”

What are some of the world’s great mosques?

“I personally visited the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and the Al-Hussaini Mosque in Najaf, Iraq,” Saleem said. “I was deeply moved by both places, as well as the Dome of the Rock mosque in Jerusalem. Also, I had the honor to meet some Muslims during my mission to Mecca.

Some of them are experts on Islamic architecture, such as Yusuf Altu’ai, who designed the first mosque in Malaysia, and who is famous for his expertise on Islamic architecture, and Dr. Raeesi Badeen, who designed a mosque in Bangladesh that took eight years to complete.”
