The Qur’an gives us insight into the Muslim world—as well as the Christian faith.
When I had heard that a Christian pastor in Florida was planning to burn the Qur’an as an evil book, I shuddered. My friend Abdul recites the Qur’an and finds comfort and inspiration in it. I first met Abdul while he was in graduate school, about 20 years ago. I had tried a few times to read the Qur’an to learn more about his Muslim faith. At the time I found it confusing and frustrating, but not worthy of incineration.
