Seek answers from the Quran in easy English to do scientific research and for truth-finding contemplation. In the Form of Questions. The answers are based on Qur'anic Verses (Lines).
The Qur'an is not mythology, a fantasy or man-made. It is the powerful truth from The Ultimate Truth (Allah = The God). Allah, the Arabic word for God, is cognate, same ancestral language, with the Hebrew word for God, Eloh, used in the Bible.
The Qur'an (610 CE - 632 CE) is interactive and is for all people, all times, and all places. Some of its verses are obscure in their deep meaning. Prophet Muhammad did not explain them because people of the seventh century would not have understood the scientific truth in them. Thus they are waiting for human research to develop and discover more facts that will unravel the scientific secrets made obscure in the Qur'an.
Please note that in human life, the human brain has a limited thinking capacity and cannot conceive Allah's huge concepts of time and space. Look at space and contemplate about the billions of galaxies which were created billions of years ago, you will understand what I have said.
In Chapter 'AlNisa' in the Quran, Verse 28 reads "Allah wants to ease it for you and human being is created weak." So in front of a big concept just glorify the Name of your God and try to move on. Otherwise history shows that people had converted from believers to disbelievers.
The Holy Qur'an is only in the Arabic language. The site offers in easy English: 1) A translation, from Arabic into English, of selected verses from the Qur'an. 2) A transliteration (spelling) from Arabic into English of some Qur'anic words.
The site is missing: The rhythmic prose and free verse, the rich vocabulary, the grandeur and the glorious tone of God's words in the Arabic Language - the language of the Qur'an.
As the late scholar and famour translator of the Quran 'Abdullah Yusuf Ali' explained, there is no translation or notes that can do adequate justice to the full meaning of Allah's Ayat (Miraculous Signs = Qur'anic verses or Lines), so only the simplest translation is included in this site.
Example of a Must-Read in the Qur'an: Who are those with whom Allah is very angry to the extent that Allah will not look at them on the Day of Judgment?
The developer of the site was born, lived and studied Arabic in Kuwait, is a librarian (MLS, USA) who also holds a Bachelor Degree in English Literature and Translation (Arabic-English) from Kuwait University.
The site was prepared and launced in Toronto, Canada .
A challenge! The Qur'an (in Arabic) is a miracle that was sent down to a Prophet. If you do not find every Verse of the Qur'an greater than its sister, you may blame it on the translator of this site or the shortcoming of the English Language. So seek answers from the Quran to contemplate (= Tadabbur AlQur'an) and to research.
