There are over a billion people in the world who claim to be followers of Islam. It is the second largest religion in the world after Christianity. The Islamic community has divided itself into countless sects and group despite being told not to by God.
Chapter 6, verse 159
Those who divide themselves into sects do not belong with you. Their judgement rests with God then he will inform them of everything they had done.
The Shia and the Sunni sects are the main corrupters of Islam as they are now fighting and killing each other over religion. All of the deviant sects are misguided if they refuse to accept the verses forbidding them to divide the Ummah (community) into sects. Also they are breaking the commandment of ‘do not kill yourselves or each other’ (4:29). They also ignore the fact that fighting is forbidden during the Four Sacred month and they continue to fight and destroy people’s lives in the name of God.
Chapter 3, verse 105
Do not be like those who became divided and disputed, despite the clear proofs which were given to them. For these have incurred a terrible retribution.
Many of these factions insist that the Quran be read only in Arabic for us to fully understand the message that it brings. This is a lie made up by people to control other people. To take away the knowledge from the followers of God’s religion and make them think they need gurus to interpret the word of God. To make people believe that they are incapable of understanding the Quran without the aid of imams, scholars or the fabricated hadiths misleadingly attributed to the prophet Mohamed, all this goes against the word of God. They have set up their religious leaders and scholars as lords instead of God (9:31). The majority of Muslims are brainwashed by these people and they all follow conjecture (6:116).
The Quran was always going to be translated into every language because the Quran is meant to be read by all mankind, not just a few people who can read Arabic. God gave us a vast array of sounds that we pass off as speech but never does God say we must only read His scriptures, say His name or pray to Him in Arabic. The majority of Muslims today are not native Arabic speakers’. In fact the Arabic speaking Muslims are now in the minority as Islam spreads its way all around the world which is foretold in the Quran.
Chapter 41, verse 44
If we made it non-Arabic Quran they would have said, "Why did it come down in that language?" Whether it is Arabic or non-Arabic, say, "For those who believe, it is a guide and healing. As for those who disbelieve, they will be deaf and blind to it, as if they are being addressed from faraway."
There is absolutely no instruction in the Quran for us to learn Arabic or to singsong the Quran in the way that they do in mosques around the world. The Quran is a book it is meant to be read like a book. The Quran is very easy to read and to understand. What would be the point of a book that no one can read or understand? It is so easy to grasp the word of God and He tells us so, not once but four times in one chapter alone.
Chapter 54, verses 17, 22, 32 and 40
We made this Quran easy to learn. Do any of you wish to learn?
The Quran has been translated into so many languages now that it is possible for everyone to read it, and to understand it. There are no excuses for not reading God's final scripture to mankind ~ the Quran. You will not be able to say, ‘I didn’t know’ on the Day of Judgment when you stand before God.
The next chapter goes on to tell us that we do not need a prophet or a scholar to teach us the message of the Quran because there is a far higher source more capable of doing so than any human ~ dead or alive.
Chapter 55, verse 1-2
The Most Gracious. Teacher of the Quran.
Do not be fooled by the propaganda that is spreading throughout the world about Islam. Islam is not about war or killing each other, Islam is the dedication of worship to God alone. Islam is not about leaders and scholars telling the population what to think, it is about thinking for yourself and finding your own way back to God. Do not be a follower of the crowd, because the majority are often walking in the wrong direct. Follow your soul and follow the guidance sent to you by God. Follow the Quran as Mohamed instructed us to do and as he did during his mission to deliver mankind God’s final scripture.
Chapter 16, verse 98
When you read the Quran, you shall seek refuge in God from Satan the rejected.
