Frequently Bought Together
In Decoding the Quran, Turkish journalist Ahmed Hulusi offers a "new construal" of the Muslim sacred text "in the light of the realities of today, the modern age." His willingness to share (without personal profit) the fruits of his religious erudition demonstrates both a bold will and a generous heart.
To appreciate Decoding the Quran fully, one must peel back the layers... - Foreword Reviews
From the Back Cover
The Quran addresses the intellect. In the most basic terms it underpins two truths.
1. There is no 'god out there' administrating existence from afar. There is only the One denoted by the name 'Allah.' It is this existence, which comprises man's essential reality, whose knowledge man should strive to acquire.
2. Man - in terms of the Names and qualities of Allah comprising his essence - is immortal. Therefore, he should align his life in accordance with this inherent endless potential within.
As with B'ismillah-arRahman-arRahim, the letter 'B' in the Quran alludes to these essential truths. In fact, the reality symbolized by the letter 'B' has been the underlying essential groundwork for all schools of Sufism, throughout all ages. If, on the contrary, this truth is not grasped, the Quran will inevitably be misconceived as a book referencing a god in the heavens. Whereas, Allah is the limitless eternal Oneness, invalidating all concepts of an 'other' in terms of space and dimension!
In Decoding the Quran the reader is given the opportunity to read through the lens of this reality.

I also recommend other books of Ahmed Hulusi.
The Quran is like a lens bestowed by Allah, so that, a person can obtain a vision of the two truths: The Book of the Universe, and the System (Sunnatullah). In order to see the Reality as clear and "one", we need the glasses of foresight and knowledge; whereby the letter B comprises one lens, and the knowledge of the Absolute Self-sufficient One constitutes the other lens.
The former lens is the very first letter of the Quran, the letter B. Its meaning is revealed in Muhammad Mustapha's(saw) words: "The part is the same as the whole!" This is proved by the science world with the "Holographic Reality" today... The latter lens is the knowledge of the Absolute Self Sufficient One and it is embedded in Chapter of Purity, Surah Al-Ikhlas like this: "Say, "Allah is Ahad (One)." (Allah is the infinite, limitless and indivisible, non-dual ONENESS.) "Allah is Samad." (Absolute Self-Sufficient One beyond any need or defect, free from the concept of multiplicity, and far from conceptualization and limitation. The one into whom nothing can enter, and the One from whom no other form of existence can come out!) "He begets not. (No other form of existence has ever originated from Him, thus, there is no other.) Nor was He begotten." (There is no other god or form of existence from which He could have originated.) "There is none like unto Him!Read more ›
