In fact Allah states in Holy Quran that if it was not the word of Allah, people would be fighting over the meanings of verses. However the verses in Quran are such that they provide answer to all the queries and still do not confuse the believers. There is no contradiction in the meaning and there is an answer to every question in Quran for those who want to grasp the true meaning. Scientific Proof Quran was revealed many years ago before even the scientific discoveries were made. It was questioned many times that how come Quran contains scientific proofs that it is word of Allah however Allah answered all these questions before they were asked.
Contrary to Maududi and Qutb’s views, Atkinson (2002) held the view that the Arabic word jihad appears in chapter 29 verse 69 of the Qur’an and the word strive has been used in its translation into English. The word jihad is a relatively short word but it has huge implications within Islamic society as a whole and especially for the daily life of the individual Muslim. Jihad. Jihad, as ordained by Islam, does not consist of killing and being killed but in striving hard to win the pleasure of Allah.

The Bible and the the Quran are the basic sources and the core of all later thoughts and ideas in their respective traditions. Each book is an indispensable part of a Christian or Muslim individual since birth.

The book is an active part of the daily lives of men and it serves as a guide throughout people’s existence. In fact, countless phrases of each book have become part of the everyday speech of people.
I personally do not know the Arabic language, but still when the Quran is being recited, my heart fills with something miraculous. Holy Quran, indeed is the real fuel for our souls. The beautiful message of the Supreme Creator has the absolute power to melt hard hearts and heal broken ones. This is the miracle of the Holy Quran which melted the heart of Hazrat Omar RadiAllahuAnho who at that time was considered to be as stiff as a person could possibly be. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) prayed to Allah Almighty to bless him with the company of either Omar Bin Khatab or Omar Bin Hashaam (Abu Jahal).
As with all religious and sacred texts, the writings of the Quran provide substantial room for conflicting understandings and interpretations of the societal implications that its edicts may have. Based on the document, there are several debates or controversies that might arise from these passages concerning views of women, of religious practice, of warfare, and of relationships with Jews, Christians, and non-Muslims. These debates and controversies are a source of much discussion in the twenty-first century, and shed light on and provide insight into the Quran’s understanding of God, of humankind, of the social life prescribed for believers, and of relations with other religious communities.

Robert in the discussed novel is one major example as she constantly embraces quotes from Qur’an and the Prophetic saying of Prophet Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him. By tracing the events of the novel a reader could easily identify those quotes as illustrations for a point of view or a religious advice, especially through young characters. The existence of quotes from the holy Qur’an is omnipresent in different parts of the novel starting with the beginning of it when Ali reflects his sadness and broken heart after the death of his mother to whom he was very close. On that moment Ali remembers the Qur’anic verse that tells him all people belong to Allah and that to him they will return: “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un” (Robert 2). These lines are basically used to remind Muslims that they should be closer to Allah more than anything else no matter how important and beloved they might be.

She states that in her keynote speech that the Quran, "provides some theological criteria for reading it through its description of God" (Barlas, 2006). Allah the name of God in Islam, is culturally referred to as a male figure in everyday terms but Barlas argues that the Quran does not state the gender of God and doesn’t promote patriarchy. Barlas explains that "the Quran does not represent God as Father and in fact it explicitly forbids Muslims from sacralising God as Father" (Barlas, 2006).
