Misunderstanding or wrong perceptions, (deliberately driven or otherwise), usually stemmed from misinformation or disinformation.
By providing "hard facts", that is, by distributing Al-Quran (the words of Allah) to those who matters (or not) is the most appropriate way of creating awareness of the Book's contents (its truth or otherwise), thereby enabling readers to compare the Great Book with theirs.
One particular verse of interest was when Allah challenged His ummah to produce a similar type of work or writings as that contained in the Great Book. To this day no one was able to do so.
It was also consistent with Allah's command to reveal even a single word from His Book to all, to gain His blessings. To love the Al-Quran is to read and understand it. The more you read it the more you want to know its mysteries and the mukjizat contained therein.
Indeed, there is no end to understanding its mysteries. especially in the course of one's self-discovery of our modern world today.The Al-Quran, which was revealed over 1,400 years ago, predicted and revealed so many things that man didn't know and some were just discovered today. Revealed knowledge has no equal to human knowledge, although Allah encouraged man to learn as much as possible about the universe that He created.
Hence, the first word of the Al-Quran was: "IQRA" (Read):
"Read! In the Name of your Lord Who has created (all that exists). He has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood).....Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous. Who has taught (the writing) by the pen. He has taught man that which he knew not.
President Obama should know. He has Muslim blood running in his veins. But what of he is today is all of Allah SWT's will. Allah Knows what He is doing and why He is not doing and more because He is the All-knowing - the Creator of man and of all in the universe, and the universe itself.
Read the Al-Quran to know more of your Creator and of yourself. Allahuakbar!
