9780615867656: Decoding The QURAN (A Unique Sufi Interpretation)

In this incredible age of increasing awareness and the rise of consciousness, where the intellect is craving to find the answers to the place and purpose of one's existence, we often find ourselves at an intersection of ancient texts and modern science, falling into an array of dichotomies. Decoding the Quran is a unique interpretation, which shows the integration of the two ways, highlighting non-duality of existence, and more importantly how the human being is an integral factor of this Oneness. It employs a holistic approach to the seemingly disconnected events, laws, edicts and commands of God, integrating this miraculous knowledge, to define how and why it is a concern to humans.

What is the reality of a human being?

Why is mankind reminded of their reality?

What does the narrations of past events mean to us in our everyday?

How should we understand the metaphors of the Quran?

What is awaiting us after death?

The answers to these questions, along with how man should understand the One denoted by the name Allah, are the most important and prominent topics covered in the Quran... Since the Quran addresses the whole of humanity throughout all ages as guidance to the truth, this particular construal has been done in the light of the realities of today.

From the Back Cover:

Why Decode the Quran from a Sufi Perspective?

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.

About the Author:
