Most people know that quran is the bible for moslem. Since september eleventh, people in the world (who are not moslem) tend to know more what is being taught in islam and what is written in quran. It's concerning the teaching about jihad that people think quran teaches moslems to kill others with certain reason. I think the biggest problem is because most quran is printed in arabic language so that people are difficult to understand, even to read. Children who read the history of jihad will be also misled because they are difficult to countercheck to quran.

so thereis quar'an without arabic language? I think it will lose the essence of it's "value". Because in indonesia, we can translate, for example, Quran in Javanese, or Malay. But we are not allowed to have Quran in Malay only, without arabic language.

well there is no big deal in it... a person who wants to know will somehow know it... and firstly arabic is not tough one..infact it is the most easy language in the world!! an english word of 10 alphbets can be written in max 4 to 5 letters of arabic..!! And there are many great world renowned scholars who have transliterated the Holy book in many languages... so that the world can know wat life was and wat it'll be as per Al-Quraan.. its not difficult to read..its the cunning human mind which doesnot makes it up to read .!!Even there r s/w's on internet which transliterate the Quraan verses in English..We can make use of those!!..!!... GOD BLESS U!!

I have always been awed by American thirst for knowledge and that is why I envy them. In fact, in Islam and in our Holy Quran God Almighty encourages us to look into his creation keenly and deeply while we have not been upto this for a long long time. In Holy Quran it is also said that if you(Muslims) would not obey your God and come upon open rebellion to Him, then He is not depending on us, but He will bring about a nation who will be more obedient and complying to His orders. And I strongly feel that the time has come because of our deeds. Now I come to your question: Holy Quran is an eight dimensional composition. In the signs that are used for vowels in Arabic, there is a message and a logic, in alphabets which are 28 in number in Arabic and are equal to moon-sights have a certain meaning. I am not a scholar at this but confirming to some books I can quote eighth of the dimensions used in Quran which can be rectified by some Logician too. And this is why Holy Quran is difficult to read and more difficult to understand if you dont tally it with Holy Prophet(Peace Be Upon Him)'s life chronicles. There is also a use of numerology which holds a greater part of the affects of this holy scripture. And you are quite right, children have been misled, being a Moslem, I confirm that there is no such order or special privilege to anyone in Muslim Jurisdiction to bring terror in civilian life. You are ordered to fight your enemies only in battlefields. This is only a sissy-act through which they think they can meet their jealousy and get even in some way to non-Moslem nations' progress. While I think that if we feel that somebody is getting ahead of us, we should work more harder and be more honest instead of pulling that one's leg in order to overtake that one.

So how could we explain to children if their friends from another religion ask our children about Jihad and terror?

The only way to understand the quran is to learn arabic and read it yourself, alot of people say this and that about the quran but it's from what he says she says, it's not all true, I'm a muslim and I read the quran, I've heard alot of things about the quran that's not even true.

1-We would strongly encourage to purchase a hardcopy of the Qur'an but with the following conditions: · get one with commentary (tafseer) · make sure the tafseer is scholarly (e.g. references to reasons behind a verse, references to hadith and sunnah, etc.) 2-If you do not have one you can read on the internet if you do not understand some verses (aayah )try to read it in another translation We would strongly encourage also that you read Islamic Topics about God,prophets and the Holy Books ,,etc befor you read the translations these topics will help you alot to understand the Qur'an 3-Every time Allaah uses the plural to refer to Himself, it is based on the respect and honour that He deserves, and on the great number of His names and attributes, and on the great number of His troops and angels." [This is known in English as "The Royal We" 4-If an aayah of this type is causing confusion, it is essential to refer to the clear, unambiguous aayaat for clarification, and if a Christian, for example, insists on taking ayaat such as "Verily, We: it is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e., the Qur'an)" [al-Hijr 15:9 – interpretation of the meaning] as proof of divine plurality, we may refute this claim by quoting such clear and unambiguous aayaat as (interpretation of the meanings): "And your god is One God, there is none who has the right to be worshipped but He, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful" [al-Baqarah 2:163] and "Say: He is Allaah, the One" [al-Ikhlaas 112:1] – and other aayaat which can only be interpreted in one way. Thus confusion will be dispelled for the one who is seeking the truth. Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) Teaching(in arabic hadith or sunnah) Muhammad (PBUH) spread a teaching regarding character and manners towardone' parents, relatives, fiends, family, humanity, animals, plants and inanimate objects. It is impossible for the human mind alone to grasp all of that teaching or come with a similar teaching. All of that unequivocally indicates that this Messenger did not bring an) of this religion from his own accord, but that it was rather a teaching and inspiration that he received from the One Who created the earth and the high heavens above and created this universe in its miraculous architecture andperfection. -We would strongly encourage to read about that the best book in that for new muslim (Riyad-us-Saliheen) you can read it here http://www.witness-pioneer.org/vil/hadeeth/riyad/default.htm

But some people say that reading tafseer and reading in arabic language will have different effect in the sense of closeness to God. Is that right? why read quran brings that kind of power?

The diffiuclt comes from maybe history & culture. Quran has a long history & written by ancient oracle. After it was translated into another language, it will be more elusive. It happened not only in quran, but also Bible and sutra.

If quran is difficult to read, why do you read then. Read , if you can read comfortably. If you find difficult to read quran, then your work is not as mentioned in the quran. This is the only reason. Thanks
