Meaning of the Holy Quran by Abdullah Yusuf AliIve read this particular publication cover to cover several times. Mr Abdullah Yusuf Alis discourses are interesting to read, and his translations are pretty close (mind you my arabic is out of practice).
Would I have all Muslims in the world not only just read the Quran in full, including the translations, discourses, historical context and arguments as opposed to just blindly memorising in Arabic, without understanding, or worse, quote and requoting the bigoted dross much spewed by many a tunnel visioned imams...
My estimation is 80% of the Quran is on honouring your social contract by keeping to prayers, bringing social justice to those who are less fortunate (e.g. feeding of orphans and those who lost their means), forgiveness on erroneous behaviour, upholding the rights of women as wives, mothers and partners (take into context that prior to Muhammads teachings, females are treated only slightly better than herd animals, and female infanticide were rampant).
The more war-like and bloodthirsty verses were in context to the time when tribal wars amongst the (bloodthirsty, I must say) Arabs escalated, and Muhammad had to protect his flock by declaring war (on transgressors, i.e. those who attacked). Unfortunately these are always misquoted by certain factions as divine permission to incite violence on people of other faiths.
Muhammad himself had non-muslim wives (a Coptic Christian, and a Jew), whom he did not force to embrace his faith, and him the Prophet. Why are modern fundamentalists declaring wars on other faiths, then, when the top guy himself preached religious tolerance?
Not in my name, ISIS. You are frauds with political ulterior motives.
