This should be important to know for all who are concerned with humanity and peace in this world, torn apart by strife, hatred and violence. It should be important whether one believes that the Qur’an is the Word of God or not.
To know what the Qur’an says is important because the Qur’an has made a deep and abiding impact on the course of human civilization and history in many fundamental ways’ because it has been inspiring, shaping, governing, and directing countless human lives over the ages, since it first appeared fourteen hundred years ago. And, it still does.
The Qur’an, among all other books believed to be divine, is the only book which itself claims, and is believed by its followers, to be literally the word of God. Those who first heard it from the lips of the prophet Muhammad had absolutely no doubt that, through him, God was speaking to them. It totally transformed them: it quickened their hearts, it reshaped their minds; it made their eyes overflow with tears and their bodies tremble with awe, it changed them into new individuals, as well as a new society and polity; it lead them to be the leaders of making and founders of a rich and flowering civilization.
However, everyone cannot venture to read the whole of the Qur’an though its length is less than that of the New Testament. Yet everyone should have the opportunity to taste the delicious fruits in the garden of the Qur’an.
The Quranic Treasures is a small step towards the fulfillment of the enormous task of making the words of the Qur’an heard in our times. This pocket-size, short book is an anthology of its selected verses, arranged under various topics. Though an anthology by its very nature has to leave out much precious and important material, these selections, it is hoped will give even the unfamiliar and the uninitiated a good glimpse of the vast treasures of knowledge and wisdom offered in the Qur’an, and will bring them face to face with the light that the Qur’an is.
This short pocket book, it is also hoed may spur and temp the readers to take up the reading of the whole of the Qur’an. Even the believers may fine it a useful companion for keeping in touch with the Qur’anic Teachings and making them heard in our times.
