On March 15 a critical review was done on The Quran Dilemma - English book by Neal Foster, Norman, OK. USA

In this response, as one of the co-authors of the book, I will provide a point-by-point response to the review comments made by Mr. Foster in an effort to clarify and address any of the points raised.

Before I begin my response, I like to point out that Mr. Foster, was honest to point out that he has not investigated the Arabic sources or researched the topic more extensively. We appreciate Mr. Foster's humility in revealing this. Furthermore, Mr. Foster's comments about his lack of understanding of the Arabic language can serve as the primary reason behind why this English version of the book came to light. It must be made clear that many, as Mr. Foster, who have a genuine interest in learning about the teaching of the Quran, which is the foundational source for all what Islam stands for, and from which other sources draw their authority (i.e., Sunnah, Shari'a Law, etc...), many are faced with the same dilemma since the Arabic language of the Quran is an archaic one and not all Arabic speaking people can comprehend it or interpret it correctly, never the less, those who are non-Arabic speakers.

In light of this, we the authors and TheQuran.com group felt the need for others to be able to access the true teachings of the Quran and other classical Islamic sources without the need to consult with others who may have a biased view or hidden interest in harmonizing such contents. Such goal, we believe is in view based on Mr. Foster's comment that he "learned a lot of history from this book."

Mr. Foster also pointed out that he experienced some confusion regarding some of the contents of our English book.

This is an amazing piece of work. The quality and formatting of the book is superb, and the content informative and revealing. As one who has had thousands of conversations with my Muslim neighbors and friends, I can tell you that this is an eye-opening tool. I like the book's title: The Qur'an Dilemma. Every living Muslim faces a dilemma for which they have no solution. Their holiest book commands them to accept "the previous Scriptures" (the Bible: Torah, Psalms, Gospel), yet it denies the central message of those Scriptures. My prayer to God is that Muslims who read this book will come to understand that the solution to their dilemma is found in the Scriptures about which the Qur'an declares: "The Messengers We sent were but men, to whom We granted inspiration: if you do not realize this, ask of those who possess the Message [the Bible]" (Sura 21:7). Claiming that the Bible was corrupted will not do since the Bible we have today comes from ancient manuscripts that predate the Qur'an by hundreds of years. Again the Qur'an says: "If you are in doubt as to what We have revealed to you, ask those who read the Book before you" (Sura 10:94). While some were accused of "distort[ing] the Book with their tongues" (Sura 3:78), the Scriptures themselves were considered uncorrupted and intact. "You bring the Law [Torah] and study it, if you be men of truth" (Sura 3:93). May God use "The Qur'an Dilemma" to open the eyes of multitudes!

The Qur'an Dilemma is an excellent resource for someone wanting to know that the Qur'an really says. It is divided into three sections: "The Background of the Qur'an,"--an introduction to both the Qur'an and The Qur'an Dilemma, an explanation of abrogated verses (verses that have been overridden by other verses), a discussion of women and the Qur'an, and other topical articles; "The Qur'anic Text"--a verse-by-verse reading of the first nine suras (chapters) with explanation about abrogation, contradictions in translation, and various interpretations of the text; and "Resources and References"--suggested readings, glossaries of names and definitions, a timeline of important dates in Muslim history, and other references.

As someone who has little knowledge of Islam or the Qur'an, I found the book to be a bit overwhelming. However, if I had specific questions about the Qur'an, the book is set up in such a way that I would easily be able to find answers. I don't think this book is meant to be read from cover-to-cover for the casual reader; rather, it functions well as a reference book. (I could see it being used as a textbook in a college class, as well.)

I also must comment on the appearance of the book. It is absolutely beautiful! You can see from the picture that the cover is stunning; what you can't see is that the center design is embossed. Inside the book, color is used to draw attention to verses (for example, green signifies abrogation) and helps the reader track with the authors. This is a very attractive book that calls out to be picked up and examined!

Overall, I give The Qur'an Dilemma 5 out of 5 stars.
