  1. I have never read any of the quran as I have only really studied eastern philosophy. And after reading this article I wish I had read it before.
    Knowledge truly is a means of light for mankind and his heart.
    Thank you for sharing this with us and I think I will use this site as a reference for any further studies of Islam.
