How Do The Unwise Interpret The Qur'an?

We have made things clear in this Qur'an so that they might pay heed, but it only
makes them run away the more!
(Surat al-Isra: 41)



In this book, the main reasons why some people are unable to understand and comprehend the Qur'an have been analyzed. Some examples of the unwise interpretations and objections made by those who are far from faith have been dealt with. The book's real intent is to expose how those who are far from sincerity and faith are incapable of comprehending the simplest of verses, and also to respond to their unjustified objections.

We should not forget there is no limit to the confusions and inconsistencies an unwise person with limited capacity can fabricate about the Qur'an and Islam. This is because the Qur'an possesses a style that can only be grasped with reason and understood with sincerity. So the factors that affect a person's understanding of the Qur'an are sincerity and reason. For this reason, there is no need to be surprised by the absurdity of the interpretations and objections an unwise person may make.

As a true believer expects others to show the same logic that he possesses, it is naturally astonishing to him to hear some of this nonsense and these illogical interpretations. However, the Qur'an states that those who do not believe have no reason or understanding. If we were to view the unwise interpretations of nonbelievers from a Qur'anic perspective, we would no longer be surprised, but consider them as a warning and a sign.

The Qur'an is the true Book of God, and it is clear. It is impossible to cast any doubt on the Qur'an with any speculation. Disbelievers fool only themselves and those like them with such sophistry, as well trying to suppress the voice of their consciences.

Furthermore, true believers have neither the time nor the need to respond to each and every fabrication.

The true believer is responsible for conveying the Qur'an's facts and miracles to others. Falsehood is bound to vanish when the truth comes. The Qur'an tells us with the verse: "Rather We hurl the truth against falsehood and it cuts right through it and it vanishes clean away! Woe without end for you for what you portray!" (Surat al-Anbiya': 18)

Falsehood is always doomed to disappear:

Say: 'Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Falsehood is always bound to vanish.' We send down in the Qur'an that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers, but it only increases the wrongdoers in loss. (Surat al-Isra': 81-82)
