Part One: The Report

Part Two: The Heretics

Part Three: The Truth



In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


This booklet exposes the conflict existing in Muslim society today, between belief and unbelief of the Holy Qur'an, between what is "Qur'anic" and what is claimed to be "Islamic", and above all, between Truth and Falsehood. The debate presented in this booklet is not an intellectual game but has a serious purpose.

This booklet is divided into three parts. In Part One, the report, "Pro-Quran group at centre of controversy" which was published in a local newspaper is reproduced as an introduction to the debate found in Parts Two and Three of this publication. The centre of controversy, as may be found later, is not the group but the Holy Qur'an itself.

This booklet should be a document one must read, and it also, if possible, must offer a reason for the unending reading (with understanding) and the continous research of the Qur'an. To this goal, the writers in this book are now thanked. It is indeed an incumbent duty of every Muslim, man or woman, to read the Qur'an and understand it according to his own capacity.

It is also hoped that this maiden venture will lead us on into the glorious fifteenth century of Qur'an and of Qur'anic Muslims, the true Muslims, which is now laden upon us. "Our Lord, do not let our hearts falter once You have guided us: grant us mercy from Your presence, for You are the Bountiful!" (Qur'an 3:8)
