I read the Quran 20 years ago, though the book was entitled Koran.
It was very interesting, except I founds parts abhorrent, such as if you cannot convince a non-believer to believe in Allah, on the second time, you can remove his eyes, if after the third time he still does not believe in Allah, you can take off his head.
This is indoctrination by fear of torture and threat of death.
Hardly a humanistic, good will gesture to one's fellow humans.
Such treatment of you fellow man, brother, supposedly also from Adam & Eve is totally idiotic to the extreme.
I noticed that in recent times, those chapters have been essentially ignored or hidden from public scrutiny.
But, I know they exist, no matter how much you try to show Islam as a caring, humanistic religion.
I know that underneath, there are still those that practice it as I have read it.
It is the attitude of the sadistic Jihadists, that follows the Koran as I had read it.
While such loons exist, Islam will never be a caring, humanistic religion.
Allah was tarred with the same Abrahamic, malevolent, Narcissistic Megalomaniac characteristics as the Judaic, Old Testament God.
Neither of them can ever be shown to care for humans, because in their scriptures they demonstrate only utter contempt for humanity.
Aye M8! :-D-
