  1. Salam alaycom, can you please tell me what ia wrong with yusuf estes saying the Quran is not a book? What is the meaning of the word Quran?

    • wa ‘alaykas-salaamu Ali, and thank you for visiting and asking your important question.

      The problem with saying that the Quran is not a book is that you must reject many, many Quranic Verses to do so, since Allah has described the Quran as a book clearly in dozens (if not hundreds) of Quranic Verses. A few quick examples: Al-Baqarah (Ch.2): verse #2, 129, 151, Aal ‘Imran (3):3, 7, etc… For someone to say the Quran is NOT a Book after Allaah refers to it as a Book is clear disbelief in the Quran, and anyone who rejects one Verse of the Quran cannot be considered a Muslim. So this is what is wrong with saying the Quran is not a book.

      Regarding the meaning of the word “Quran” in the Arabic Language, then the scholars have at least four opinions about its origin:

      [1] It is special name just for the Book of Allaah (like Torah and Injeel), not taken from any verbal base.
      [2] It is a verbal noun from qa-ra-ah (recitation).
      [3] It is taken from the verb qa-ra-na (combining).
      [4] It is taken from al-qur’ (compilation).

      To select the second meaning without any evidence, and then conclude that the Quran is ONLY recitation and NOT a book, in direct contradiction to the One whose Speech it is (!), is compound ignorance, so be warned of ignorant people playing games with the upright Religion of Allaah and the pure ‘aqeedah of the Muslims. I hope this helps.
