in response to reader comment: Incorrect information of the Quran

Submitted by Jordana Ghannam-Ahmed (United States), Jan 27, 2020 at 01:37

You are absolutely correct; unfortunately, I have found MANY occasions wherein the Quran is misquoted to such a large degree to have entirely altered the sentiment or meaning entirely of the particular verse being mentioned. And this has been often on mainstream news or media which shocks the $!@& out of me becusee it is easy enough to confirm if the Quran does indeed say XYZ or not, but unfortunately, a HUGE majority of ppl (who are not Muslim and not familiar with the Quran in it's true and unadulterated form, and who believe that their media got it right) blindly believe what they read and hear and form opinions on islam based on misleading or outright false information.

Of course terrorist or extremist and especially the Saudi based Saheeh international publishing company and their "Quran" and their other books and pamphlets ALL use their retranslated and altered interpretations of Quranic scripture, one would expect that, as they have to support their actions and blieef system somehow religiously speaking and the whole concept of them doing so arose from the reality that much of the audience in which these materials goes to, is illiterate, and although they are muslim they too only know what they are told and cannot verify it independently, and/or are very young and impressionable and easily believe the false teachings and propaganda from these extremist clerics. This isn't helpful to islams image problem caused by terrorists hijacking a faith and making it their own brand of awful.

You wouldn't believe how it changes people's perceptions to know what the Quran really says and be shown it for themselves and be educated on the facts. The same is true with some denominations and sects of Christianity using passages from the Bible alter or add information or skew the interpretation to support hate and condemnation of others. Many times I'll hear some Evangelical preacher saying God hates this or against the Bible that. And I'll think to myself gee I've read the Bible and I don't recall reading that anywhere that's weird how can so many people believe something so questionable?! But they do, and thank you for bringing that to attention; it has to start with educating and sharing positive and truthful information
