Beware of American Quran

The one and only free public forum for Bohras. The focus of this forum is the reform movement, the Dawoodi Bohra faith and, of course, the corrupt priesthood. But the discussion is in no way restricted to the Bohras alone.

Send it to as many muslims as u can.

The new AMERICAN Quran: a dangerous trick A new Quran is being distributed
in Kuwait, titled "The True Furqan".

It is being described as the ayats of the Shaytan and Al-Furqan weekly
magazine has found out that the two American printing companies;'Omega 2001'
and 'Wine Press' are involved in the publishing of 'The True Furqan', a book which has
also been titled 'The 21st Century Quran'!

It is over 366 pages and is in both the Arabic and English languages...it is
being distributed to our children in Kuwait in the private English schools!

The book contains 77 Surats, which include Al-Fatiha, Al-Jana and Al-Injil.
Instead of Bismillah, each Surat begins with a longer version of this incorporating the
Christian belief of the three spirits. And this so called Quran opposes many Islamic beliefs. in one of its ayats it describes having more than one ! wife as fornication, divorce being non-permissable and it uses a new system for the
sharing out of the will, opposing the current one. It states that Jihad is HARAAM. This book even goes as far as attacking Allah, Subhanahu wa Tahala!

All this is poisoning our children at approx. $3.

Brothers and Sisters pleae make sure you forward this email to as many
people as possible so that we can stop this dangerous trick. Please tell
everyone you know and may Allah reward you.

I went to the link that you have posted and was reading the reviews of some people and Muhammad Azher Madni has something very interesting to say, here it is.

""I think someone has taken the challenge of Allah (SWT) and tried to produce "a few ayaah" like the Quraan. When Allah (SWT) challenges the non-believers to produce "a few ayaah like these" in the noble Quraan, it is my understanding that He does not claim that such ayaah just cannot be produced at all, considering the events even in the life of the Prophet (PBUH) and after him where such ayaah were infact produced. I think the real challenge Allah (SWT) has presented in the form of the noble Quraan is its following 3 properties:

1) Its un-corrupted form

2) Its huge popularity over such a long time

3) Its undisputed claims. Although it is so massively read by the believers and the non-believers alike, it could never be substantially disputed as the word of God.

So for any fake ayaah to be comparable to Quraan, they must meet the given 3 properties. I think that by spreading these emails over the Internet all we are doing is helping these "fake ayaahs" satisfy the 2nd property. So as Muslims I urge you not to forward any such emails and be a part of it. Let this scam die its natural death. We don't want to make the publishing house millions of $s by increasing the popularity of these books like we foolishly did in the case of Satanic Verses. As for the noble Quraan, Allah (SWT) has himself promised its protection in the quraan itself. ""

So dear brother Alislam, if you are a true muslim, let not your heart be troubled and stop spreading this message around.
