For Proud Hindu

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: proven by your quran

Submitted by Khan (New Zealand), Apr 21, 2009 at 07:57

After reading your comments I am honestly smiling at your lack of knowledge. Quran is the most read book in the world for the last 1400 years.This is also the unbeaten record of Quran that millions of Muslims memorize it word by word from A to Z through out the whole history of Islam. I wonder how come you dare to say that its Arabic is too old. I being non-Arabic Muslim understand its meaning due to continuous reading more explicitly than the translation in my own language. Tafseers have been written to explain the depth of different texts not for the superficial meanings. It is the amazing quality of the Arabic language that the word that was used 1400 years ago still has the same pronunciation as well as the meaning. I can cite countless examples in this regard.

By the way I don't see any reason to be a proud Hindu as it is only religion that is practiced only in a certain geographical area. It has not appealed to the other nations like Christianity and Islam did. Rather Islam has edge on the Christianity as the Muslims have been super power for more than 1000 years. Its been only 2 centuries since the Western nations gathered knowledge during their Rennaisance Movement in 16th century from Muslims. Before this they were in Dark Ages but Muslims were flourishing in Qortoba, Spain and Baghdad was the New York of that age.
