Discovering the Miracle of the Qur’an
Sandra Peterson of Chelsea, Michigan, discovered the depth of the Qur’an from the course Exploring the Qur’an:
I am amazed by the depth and nature of the Qur’an. I did not realize that it was such a beautiful piece of literature, in addition to being the miracle of Islam, provided through Muhammad. I am enjoying reading the excerpts in our study selections and may, at some future date, attempt to read the entire Qur’an. I am also inspired to reread the Kitab-i-Iqan and the life of Baha’u’llah.
I have gained a great deal of respect for the Qur’an and those who follow the teachings of Muhammad. I have certainly been made aware of my ignorance of Islam and religion as a whole!
I now know that the Qur’an is the Miracle of Islam. While I want to learn more about it and read more of it, I also want to re-immerse myself in the Baha’i writings.
I hope to gain a good enough understanding of and familiarity with the Qur’an and Islam so that I can talk about it with my friends. Up to now I have discussed some of my learnings with friends and family, but quite superficially, really.
The materials provided in this course are so valuable and well-chosen. Our mentor, Hossein Ashchi, gave excellent explanations and connected these explanations with the Baha’i writings.
Thank you for a wonderful (and continuing) experience!
