Why do they not study the Quran carefully?

Part I

The Quran is God’s Final Testament to the world. It is free from ambiguity and contradictions. In addition to the absence of any con-flict in the Quran, God promised to keep the wicked away from it. “None can grasp it except the sincere.” (56:79)

Thus, the less than sincere persons who are not satisfied with the Quran alone, as well as those pos-sessed by the devils, are divinely prevented from understanding it. This fact is repeated throughout the Quran (7:146, 17:45, 18:57).

Some people claim that there are discrepancies in the Quran. What these people do is to cite a few verses out of context, then distort them in order to mislead their unquestioning followers who follow them blindly. Unfortunately, they are unaware that the Quran is a

protected book designed exclu-sively for those who sincerely seek to know and appreciate their true God.

It is thus a blessing when a person chooses to appreciate the awesome wisdom of this numerically coded book. Even more rewarding to know is that the book is from the Lord of the universe with its built-in physical evidence to prove that it is truly from God Almighty:

This Quran could not possibly be authored by other than God. It confirms all previous messages, and provides a fully detailed scripture. It is infallible for it comes from the Lord of the uni-verse. (10:37)

An Arabic Quran, without any ambiguity, that they may be righteous.” (39:28)

It is preserved with us in the original master, honorable and full of wisdom.” (43:4)

Why do they not study the Quran carefully, if it were from other than God, they would have found in it numerous contradictions… (4:82)

The understanding of Quran is a special gift from God, which is based on our individual growth and with time and experience.

When he reached maturity and strength, we endowed him with wisdom and knowledge. We thus reward the righteous. (28:14)

In fact, these revelations are clear in the chests of those who possess knowledge; only the wicked will disregard our revelations. (29:49)
