The Quran is a book of persuasion – it is a book that speaks to you like a friend. Stories of famous people are given only as a way to prove a point, laws are few and are connected with trying to make you a better person. Poetic phrases become beautiful ways to remember sound adviceand good teachings. You can open the book at any page, start reading and learn something useful.
In short, the Quran is a personal letter from God to you, asking you to become something more than you thought you could be, someone whom God loves and someone who loves His world so much that he or she will do everything in their power to take good care of it.
