THUS SPEAKS THE QUR'AN

Overview: Iftikhar Ahmad, PhD
This book is dedicated to my best friend Basharat Ahmad of Coral
Springs, Florida. Basharat is one of those blessed men who seek
wisdom and knowledge wherever it is. He has been encouraging and
supporting me in our Quranic Mission for many years. I think, when it
comes to sincerity, we need only a few close friends. For me,
Basharat is on top of that worthy list.
I have the honor of him writing the introduction to quite a few of my
books. Every visit of Basharat to his friend Shabbir is a rejuvenating
delight. I have never been, and never will be, able to meet his
affection and kindness.
May God bless him and his family!

WHAT IS THE QURAN?
According to Muslim belief, the Quran is a book revealed by the
Almighty to the exalted Prophet Muhammad of Arabia between 610-
622 CE. It is a guide of conduct for all humanity. Unbiased reflection
tells any reader that the Book is indeed matchless in the wisdom,
knowledge, benevolence and guidance it enshrines. The Quran, the
Last Message of God to mankind, is a much smaller book than the
Prophet Muhammad (570-632 CE) was the last in the long chain of
prophets, messengers and apostles of God who were raised to guide
people in all parts of the world. He was the last prophet since the
Message delivered to him is for all humanity and it is complete,
unaltered, and God Himself guarantees its protection for all times.
It sounds strange that most people have no hesitation in accepting
the fact that God revealed His messages to the exalted prophets
Abraham, Moses, Jesus and others, but suddenly fall into skepticism
when it comes to Muhammad (S). TSQ (THUS SPEAKS THE QURAN)
will let the reader see the superb quality of the Final Message of God
The Quran is all about you humans and it will give you eminence. [21:10]
O’ Mankind! There has now come to you Enlightenment from your
Sustainer, and a healing for everything that troubles your hearts, and
Guidance and Grace to all who embrace it. [10:57]
Nay, they deny it without grasping the profound knowledge therein.
And they have yet to see the benevolent transformation it can bring
about in the making of humanity…. [10:39]
