I read this to understand why the Islamic world is experiencing so much aggression, and wondering if there was a mandate in the Quran to make war upon others. I found only one oblique mandate in Surah 61.4, saying that "Truly Allah loves those who fight in his cause in battle array." No other calls to action in the entire work.
There is plenty of sermonizing (most of the book,) which I found agonizing. There is no proselytizing that I could find. The only mandate was to those who already believed, and that was to walk the path. Allah does all the punishing; no one else, except for the one section mentioned above. Allah tells believers not to converse with non-believers, lest they be enticed to turn away from Allah.
There is a reference to Judgment Day with plenty of sermonizing.
Interestingly, half of the book refers to "us" and "we" when Allah (I presume) speaks in the first person. In the third person, the reference is Allah.
Also interesting to me was that the final part of the book seems to be written in a different voice--Allah is now referred to as the Lord about half the time, which was not in the earlier parts.
Allah created all men from two and created all tribes to know each other, but the believers are special, are brothers and told to make peace between themselves. Clearly the extremists have not read this.
This is basically a book of worship and sermonizing with almost no violence advocated.
This edition needs not only an effective search engine, but an ability to daisy-chain searches together, like a Thompson Chain Reference Bible. Thus, if I wanted to chase down "sandal," or "sandals," I could.
The editor also needs to add both Preface notes & marginal notes. Most readers won't know, for example, that a later verse that conflicts with an earlier verse does not create a discrepancy (as some claim of the Bible), but that the later verse cancels or modifies the earlier verse or concept. That would be a great help.
- all holy books and read them often enough as needed. Narendra.
I would suggest downloading a different version of the Qur'an that was better printed and translated. I will probably do the same.
