• He sent the first book, he couldn't protect it because it was corrupted by his own creation. He sent a second book, same thing happened again. Now he has sent a third book.... If he could protect the third book from corruption, why did He fail to protect the first two books?

  • Is the Quran Written for Men?

    I am asking a question on behalf of a friend of mine who has shown keen interest in Islam. She has started to read the Yusuf Ali English Translation but has become troubled by a recurring theme she has noticed in the Quran. I have explained to her on multiple occasions how the Quran is a revelation for all of Mankind, irrespective of gender or race. However, she has pointed out several verses to me in which, something that should be universally applicable to both men and women, is alluded to only be applicable to the men. An example of this is found in Quran 5:6 where it discusses wudu. This is a ritual performed by both Muslim men and women yet a particular extract of the verse says "or ye have been in contact with women" She has asked me: "If the Quran is for women too, why doesn't the verse say something along the lines of "or ye have been in contact with your spouse" or "if ye have had lawful sexual intercourse". I was wondering is this a case of poor English Translation? Is the Authentic Quran in Arabic more inclusive? Is this verse implying that a woman doesn't need to take wudu if she has slept with a man? If so, why? I tried to find an answer for her because I feel it raises a valid point. If the Qur'an is directed at both male and females (with the exception of many verses directed solely at a particular gender), why is it not shown in Allah's commands to his people? I hope to hear from you soon. She is very interested in Islam and is considering reverting.

  • Are We Allowed to Have ‘Doubts’?

    Thank you for taking my questions. 1- I was wondering one thing: isnt it most important that our religion is reflected as a way of life rather than the recitation of a few lines? 2- Im a Muslim, and I truly believe in Islam, but I always get that evil thought, what if Islam is not the right religion, and of course I wont know the answer to that until I die, which well be too late to make another choice.
