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':
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)
