    The Qur'an

    I am taking a course on the Qur'an from the Wilmette Institute. As part of the program, I am going to give a deepening on the Qur'an. I want to share what I've produced so far on this project: Qur'an means recitation so the Qur'an is meant to be recited aloud melodiously. So in Islamic...

    Help needed proofreading Quran translation

    Hi all, I recently noticed a few errors in the online version of A.J. Arberrys' translation of the Quran. I think someone probably copy - pasted content which did not turn out as expected, due to the odd way the content is arranged in the printed version. It is online at several places as the...

    Seeking a Baha'i study of the Qur'an...

    I've searched the web recently for a study of the Qur'an from a Baha'i perspective. I've found several texts on interpretations of Qur'anic quotes that help support the authenticity of the Baha'i revelation. Still, I've found very little on the teachings of the Qur'an itself apart from this...

    Qur'an 36:38

    In the new translation of Some Answered Questions, this is quoted as, "The sun moves in a fixed place of its own." However, various translations of the Qur'an have "to" instead of "in". For example, John Medows Rodwell's translation is, "And the Sun hasteneth to her place of rest. This, the...

    My take on Quranic embryology

    Hello. I meditated on the Holy Quran the other day, and I am amazed by how intelligent the Book is. In the Surah of the Believers (Al Muminun, #23) there is a passage that is quoted a lot by Muslims as being a scientific miracle, while anti-Islam propaganda target it as being a proof of the...

    A Book like Quran

    Baha'u'llah in Iqan, narrates a Hadith that Qaim reveals a Book like Quran: In the “Biḥár” it is recorded: “In our Qá’im there shall be four signs from four Prophets, Moses, Jesus, Joseph, and Muḥammad. The sign from Moses is fear and expectation; from Jesus, that which was spoken of Him; from...

    The Qur'an, Baha'i, and the threat of Hell

    Recently I've been reading the Qur'an. What astonishes me is how much Muhammad focuses on the punishment of hell. If there is a single chapter that doesn't warn of punishment for unbelievers, I seem to have missed it. Maybe there are later chapters that do not contain such warnings, and I just...

    Qur'an vs Baha'i writings

    If the Baha'i writings are from God, and so is the Qur'an, then why doesn't every muslim who reads Baha'i/Babi writings see the same beauty? I believe that in English the Baha'i writings are very inspirational. I think that their contents are enough proof for myself. I also read about how...

    Quran pointing towards Baha'i-Faith?

The Bible points clearly towards someone to some after Jesus Christ...but the Quran does not show clear evidence, that there will be another messenger later on. I know that "the seal of the prophets" is exaggerated my the muslim clergy and...

    The Quran and the Hadith

    So, unfortunately the bulk of my knowledge comes from reading about the life of Muhammad, and I haven't been able to obtain a copy of the Quran to read (though I have read portions online). Myself, having been raised reading the bible, am a little confused when it comes to scripture and Islam...

    Oldest Qur'an found dating to Muhammad's lifetime

    Oldest known Qur'an ever found! Exciting story because it is so old that it was likely scribed during Muhammad's lifetime, and possibly by a contemporary of his.

    [Quran 3:81] Is this Bahaullah?!

    [Quran 3:81] God took a covenant from the prophets, saying, "I will give you the scripture and wisdom. Afterwards, a messenger will come to confirm all existing scriptures. You shall believe in him and support him." He said, "Do you agree with this, and pledge to fulfill this covenant?" They...

    Literary Miracles: the Qur'an & Baha'i Scriptures

    Just based on some personal thinking and interest: In the Qur'an it is said that no man can imitate its perfection: Say: "If the mankind and the jinns were together to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they helped one another." (Q. 17:88) This...

    Historicity of Bible & Quran

    I am of the opinion that arguing for the historicity of the Biblical and Quranic figures actually does not strengthen Bahaullah's claims. I have not yet formulated a solid argument to support this in words yet other than a gut feeling based on my decade+ studies. I don't think the Bahai...

    Qur'an 49:6 and prohibition of slander in Islam

    Qur'an 49:6 "O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done." The Qur'an also insists Muslims must speak out against slander; Qur'an 49:15-17; "Behold, ye...
