Let's Read The Quran Campaign

Peace!

We need your participation!

Campaign name: Let’s Read The Quran

Logo/icon:
On January 1st 2009, four friends Syed, Walski, Marina and Anas got together at Coffee-Bean Bangsar Village and decided to launch a campaign to encourage people to read and understand the Quran better.

This campaign is not only for Muslims, but also for our brothers and sisters who are Christians, Buddhists Hindus, Sikhs and those who believes in a God-Head but not so gung-ho about being in any brand of religion, too – come join us and share your ideas! You can join this campaign even if you are an atheist!

The goal of this campaign is to encourage people to read the Quran in the language they understand most and find in it areas of common values in our day to day living.

What is the Campaign all about?
Read the Quran in the language that you are familiar with.

When will the campaign start and end?
January 15th to February 14th (Happy Valentine’s Day!)

Where?
Participating blogs in the blogospheres.

Why?
So more people know what the Quran says and what the Quran does not say and to match it to what is really said in our daily lives.

Who?
Everyone who wants to – the more the merrier! If you have a Blog, Facebook, etc carry the logo/icon.

How?
- To join the campaign, place the accompanying logo/icon at your blog.
- Write or share short articles based on the Quranic text.
- Share what you find in the Quran with family and friends.
- Ask questions about the Quranic message
- Read the Quran – eg click here

How about checking out following website..

http://quranet.net/

Quranet was chosen to represent Israel at the President's Conference.

Israeli Minister of Education, Prof Yuli Tamir supports the project.

This is a great idea. If the non Muslims could also read the Quran and understand the timeless message it would do a lot of good in promoting better understanding.

Perhaps then, the brainless antics of some of our leaders in the name of Islam, can be seen as "brainless antics."

I well know, O Jehovah, that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step. Correct me, O Jehovah, however with judgment; not in your anger, that you may not reduce me to nothing.

"Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need, since the kingdom of the heavens belongs to them." All are welcome and see for yourself my blog on "Let's read the QURAN" under blogger name Samaritan.

your idea is very great. But as a muslim we shouldn't read the Quran as we read any other books.

We need someone experts in translating the true meaning of the Quran itself. I am afraid that people will misunderstand the true meaning of the content.

I think you should invite some experts in the field. To help us understand much better

Great Ad in Star today, Anas. Good for you!

But sad thing is, we know they won't listen, until the ship sinks.
