At least considering this possibility might help you identify potential cognitive and emotional barriers to having an authentic encounter with the Quran. How to Read the Quran It is not only non-Muslims inluenced by negative news about Islam and Muslims who will have to overcome assumptions and acquired biases about the Quran in order to be able to read it with an open mind. If you are a Muslim, you too have a cultural context and formative experiences that have shaped your understanding of the Quran.

Indeed, some born into Muslim families and communities might have a more diicult time opening their hearts fully to the Quranic message than new readers, because they have been taught to understand verses in a particular narrow, sectarian way. But this is not true for everyone. It is true that Muslims believe that the original Arabic-language Quran is a record of the precise words enunciated by the Prophet Muhammad as he received them from God through the Archangel Gabriel.

At the same time, this does not mean that the Quran is supposed to be read literally, if that means denying the historical meaning of terms and expres- sions, ignoring the social context of particular rulings, or neglecting its symbolic and inner meanings.

To research the linguistic and historical dimensions of the Quran or to seek its inner meaning is not a modern innovation; rather, these kinds of interpreta- tion began with the Prophet Muhammad and his Companions and continue today. Readers of the Quran must shed the notion that a literalist reading of the Quran is somehow more authentic or pious than an informed interpretation.

Believers in scriptures other than the Quran will need to be careful not to auto- matically apply their hermeneutical traditions to the Quran, but some Muslim readers also need to explore the possibility that what they have been taught about the way the Quran should be interpreted might not be in accord with the understanding of many other Muslims. When you read other essays in this Study Quran about traditional exegesis or various approaches to deriving law, spiritual practices, or spiritual under- standings from the Quran, you might be surprised by what you read.

You may have been taught to relate to the Quran in a particular manner, for example, by using it as a proof text, that is, proving a particular legal judgment by citing a singular verse. Alter- nately, you may have been taught to minimize the import of verses with detailed legal content while prioritizing verses articulating general spiritual principles, such as here is no coercion in religion Are these approaches to the Quran contradictory?

If not, how have they been reconciled? Nonbelievers can also learn much by being open to the diverse traditional interpretations of the sacred scripture of Islam. What Kind of Book Is the Quran? In the world of modern publishing, books can look deceptively uniform. Most books are designed to be portable and manageable and to it on a standard bookshelf. Today, publications of scripture oten display some gilding on the title or on the edges of the pages.

Ahmadiyya translations of the Quran

In a bookstore illed with dramatic cover art and design, this fact does not do much in itself to prepare us for an encounter with a radically dif- ferent kind of text.

We need to prepare ourselves, then, as we embark upon a read- ing of scripture, to engage with a diferent kind of book; we must open ourselves to being surprised, inspired, disturbed, and sometimes confused by the words and ideas we encounter. All scriptures, including the Quran, draw on themes, images, symbols, language, and literary styles that were not wholly unfamiliar to their ini- tial audiences—that is, to the historical peoples who initially received and then transmitted the sacred words.

But we are far away in time from those people who irst heard or read the various books of the Bible or the Quran, and we need to understand something about those people and their societies, language, and world- view if we are to avoid misinterpreting much of the language and style of these holy texts.

As we approach the Quran, then, we need to take this book on its own terms and embrace its unique style and arrangement. A distinctive aspect of the Quran is its assertion of its own identity as both an oral revelation and a written text. Rather, the Quran is a collection of the revelations the Prophet Muhammad received from God from the inception of his call to prophethood at age forty until his death at age sixty-three. It is as though the Prophet Muhammad had a mental notebook whose blank pages he illed in with the revelations he received over the twenty-three years of his prophetic calling.

It was only the death of the Prophet that cut of any possibility of further revela- tions to be added to the Quran. At this point it was the responsibility of his Compan- ions to preserve the revealed text. At the same time, Muslims are permitted to read or recite from any place in the Quran for worship or learning. Stylistic Harmony in the Quran he content of the Quranic revelations is as varied as the diversity of the worldly and transcendent concerns of humanity. Further, the Quran addresses both individuals and communities, and these communities changed internally and in relation to each other even over the course of the more than two decades during which the Quran was revealed.

Readers of the Quran, therefore, need to be mentally and emotionally agile, ready to be moved quickly in a new direction. Ater the death of the Prophet Muhammad, a class of Muslim scholars arose who combed through the Quran collecting and orga- nizing verses that pertained to speciic subjects, such as legal issues, theological mat- ters, stories about the prophets, descriptions of how to pray, and directly spiritual and metaphysical teachings.

Each of their books was carefully composed to allow readers to learn about the Quranic perspective on a particular topic. But the Quran itself, the source of these books, resists such a rigid imposition of external structure.

Readers of the Quran, like each one of us in our daily lives, must be prepared to quickly shit at- tention to a new concern at any moment. In fact, it pos- sesses a remarkable inner unity and coherence.

Unlike the Hebrew Bible or the New Testament, whose various books were composed or collected by many people at dif- ferent times, the Quran is the collection of revelations to only one man, the Prophet Muhammad, over a relatively short period of time. In this respect, the Quran assumes great importance as recitation. Here we ind suc- cessive verses ending in various kinds of rhymes. Readers of the Quran need to pay attention not only to the way verses end, but to their beginnings as well.

Readers who do not know Arabic will probably need to listen to the recitation a few times in order to notice the pleasing rhythm created by these connectors, as they are less obvious than the efect created by the rhymed endings of verses. Beginners are also advised to read How to Read the Quran short sections at each sitting, not great numbers of pages at a time as if they were reading a novel or an ordinary noniction book.

Unifying hemes of the Quran It is perhaps helpful, before beginning a reading of the Quran, to be familiar with some of its major themes, many of which are addressed from multiple perspectives through- out the scripture. Spiritually, the Quran addresses our need for knowledge about God—to know that He is One, the Creator and Ruler of the universe—as well as our need to learn how to show our gratitude and obedience to God through prayer, other acts of worship, and other human actions that are to be carried out according to Divine injunctions.

Belief in the immortality of the soul, Resurrection, and an ultimate accounting of each soul before God is therefore identiied and emphasized throughout the Quran, along with belief in God, as a necessary component of faith for all true religions. For example, ater mentioning Christians, Jews, and Sabeans, the Quran says, Whosoever believes in God and the Last Day and works righteousness, no fear shall come upon them, nor shall they grieve In order to guide humanity to do what is right and prepare for this accounting, the Quran entices human beings with descriptions of Paradise and the ultimate bliss of being in the Divine Presence, while warning them about the consequences of evil acts by describing in very vivid terms the pain and despair of those whose actions lead to Hellire.

Rather, it is opposed to otherworldliness. It is by struggling to do what is right and good in our lives on this earth that we develop our spiritual depth and awareness. It is for this reason that the Quran addresses our closest and sometimes most contentious relationships—with family, neighbors, and business partners—emphasizing the need for integrity and honesty.

How to Read the Quran hose acquainted with the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Gospels will meet many familiar igures in the Quran. What is important to understand is that the Biblical stories themselves drew upon a much older oral tradition that did not disappear when the various books of the Bible were written.

Further, the history of the prophets was known not just through written and oral literature, but through the existence of holy sites throughout the Arabian Peninsula and the Near East. Readers of the Quran who realize that the Biblical igures had a much richer and wider presence among Near Eastern monotheists outside the Bible will perhaps be better prepared to encounter new perspectives and previ- ously unknown stories about them.

But such readers must also remember that, for Muslims, accounts of earlier prophets are not based on stories that were prevalent in Arabia, but on Divine Revelation about these prophets and are therefore completely independent of historical sources.

Messenger of God and Bringer of the Quran he Quran stresses the important role of Muhammad as Messenger—the one who transmitted the message from God to humanity. Moreover, he was also the person most familiar with the Quran and interpreted it according to the needs of his community as well as for later genera- tions of Muslims.

In fact, he can be said to be the irst commentator on the Quran. All Muslims agree that the context of the initial revelation to the Prophet Muhammad is of great signiicance. For this reason, one must not be hasty in drawing conclusions about legal judgments and other norms on the basis of a surface reading of a few verses from the Quran.

Even apparently unambiguous declarations might, in fact, be limited in application or scope. How the Quran Is Read in Muslim Societies Quranic literacy varies widely in Muslim societies and does not necessarily correlate with general literacy and educational achievement.

Quranic education formed the foundation of literacy in traditional Muslim societies, but modernity has severed that connection in many places, although this is not true everywhere. Muslims should ac- quire four skills in order to employ the Quran themselves in religious and moral life and derive beneit from it as a source of guidance. For Arabic-speaking children, an understanding of the meaning of the words comes at irst as a consequence of their general knowledge of the Arabic language, which is then supplemented by their teachers.

To understand the Quran, non-Arab Muslims need extra preparatory education consisting of either learning basic Arabic vocabulary and grammar or having access to translations in their native language. In fact, most classical works of Arabic grammar were written by Persians. Parts of the Quran are recited orally in the daily ritual prayers that all Muslims are required to perform; so every Muslim needs some basic recitation skills.

Proper recita- tion should be melodic, so that it is pleasant to hear, but not musical in the usual sense of the word, lest the recitation turn into a performance of personal artistry. Apart from their own recitation, most Muslims experience the Quran through hearing its recitation by accomplished reciters, who can be found throughout the Islamic world in non-Arab countries as well as in Arab ones.

In fact, many of the best reciters are not Arabs, and some reciters are men and others women. Also, accomplished scholars of the Quran, not all of whom are reciters, can be found in every Islamic country.

Muslims have taught these skills for experiencing the Quran through a variety of ways, according to the means and abilities of each community. Institutions for reli- gious education in which Quranic studies are pursued run the gamut from one-room neighborhood schools for small children maktabs to enormous seminaries usually known as madrasahs serving an oten cosmopolitan student body. For most of Is- lamic civilization, learning to read and recite the Quran was the beginning of educa- tion and an incentive to literacy.

Quranic recitation is especially intense during the month of Ramadan, the time when the Quran was irst revealed. Muslims believe that the Quran is the Word of God, and God is always present, saying of the human being in one verse, We are nearer to him than his jugular vein Bringing the Quran into a space or occasion is a way to be reminded of that Divine Presence.

One might begin, then, by reading the last two sections of the Quran i. Ater spending some time with the early revelations and other passages mentioned above, new readers can move on to other sections of the Quran.Muslims have taught these skills for experiencing the Quran through a variety of ways, according to the means and abilities of each community.

Nevertheless, there are a few precautions to be noted in this regard. Certainly some of the ethical pronounce- ments in the Quran might still have some resonance for these readers.

Rated 5 out of 5 Adil Khan — Very convincing arguments. To understand the Quran, non-Arab Muslims need extra preparatory education consisting of either learning basic Arabic vocabulary and grammar or having access to translations in their native language. At least considering this possibility might help you identify potential cognitive and emotional barriers to having an authentic encounter with the Quran. You must do your due diligence because this is what you will have to take with you on the day of judgement.
