Let’s read the Quran

lrtqlogo200901

I came across this logo just now while visiting Walski’s Asylum. It is a blogger initiative, a month-long campaign to encourage people to read and understand the Quran. A great initiative, methinks.

I’ve always been meaning to read the Quran, but I’ve been having difficulty understanding the context, and the meanings of the texts. With this campaign, which starts today, I’m hoping that I’ll be reading a lot of interesting posts from the bloggers who are participating in this campaign. My hopes are that by Valentine’s Day this year, I’ll know a whole lot more about Islam and the Quran than I do today.

For more information, please do give Walski a visit HERE.

Participating blogs are:
1. 3540 Jalan Sudin
2. Anas Zubedy
3. ARTiculations
4. Being Human in the World
5. Cowboy Malaysia
6. Disquiet
7. Jebat Must Die
8. Lunch at the Lake Club
9. MACVAYSIA
10. myAsylum
11. O.B.E.
12. OutSyed The Box
13. Poetic Justice
14. Rantings by MM
15. Rapera
16. Renovatio
17. Rocky’s Bru

    My dear, thanks for posting this…

    I’ve always believed that learning is a life-long thing, and as far as the Quran is concerned, there are a lot of universal messages that apply to everyone. I do hope that you gain some insight, at the very least…

    There are, in fact, many resources available on the ‘Net, for those interested to delve deeper, and from time to time, I’ll be posting some URLs of those resources I’ve found useful.

    Once again, thanks…πŸ™‚

    For those who want to read the Quran, it is available on the net here;

    http://www.quranexplorer.com/

    Go to Quran Explorer and you can read the translation in Bahasa OR if you prefer English. The easier to read is either Yusuf Ali or Pickthall.πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the link. The Yusuf Ali translation of the Quran is actually quite readily available on the Internet.

    Cheers.

    I was a church-goer for 10 years and I still haven’t finished reading the Bible! Reason: It’s REALLY hard to read! Good luck with the Quran!πŸ™‚

    I admire your thirst for knowledge!

    To know what the Quran(or any texts, religious or not) says or does not say, I think it is equally important, if not more important, to read i.e. to know the mind that reads the Quran. When we know the knowing mind that knows, then the meaning becomes clear, even if the message is confusing.
