Is it compulsory to read Quran in Arabic?

Salam. Undoubtedly, there is one Quran which is in Arabic.  The reason of revealing the message of God  in Arabic so that the Arabian Prophet can understand God’s message.  There is no other special reason.  The Quran is the message, not the Arabic message.

We do believe that the Quran is indeed a miracle because the Quran was revealed to prophet Muhammad around 1500 years ago still it contains many modern scientific facts which are discovered in modern time only.

Rashad Khalifa and his alleged God’s messengership

pending image

Initially I was quite convinced and impressed that Dr. Rashad Khalifa was a messenger of God but now I do not think he was a messenger of God. I think he believed so for himself mistakenly! I am not calling him a liar or imposter because anybody could be mistaken [ Continue reading…]


Quran’s clear contradictions and world’s all major religions
