Muhammad Asad - The Message of the Quran
aka Leopold Weiss (Translator & Commentary )
Adobe - PDF - Entire Text

If I recall correctly, it was towards the end of grade 9, that I started reading, or let me say 'discovered' - "The Message of the Quran". On a particular day, I was highly stressed out, and something made me pick this book up. After reading for a while, like an Epiphany, all my despair, and stress vanished away. I felt that, now, for the first time ever, something about the Revelation resonated within me. It was a feeling unlike any other.

I felt Peace at last.

I devote this blog to that Jew's legacy.

    Thank you very much for the information left on my blog: One Moment in Time.
    Although born and raised within a muslim community, it was a while till I realised that much of what is being endorsed as Islamic are actually cultural rather then the word of Allah. No harm there until people insist that the cultural dogma IS Islam; this becomes harmful when we try to force one culture into another. I've personally seen this unfold before my very eyes. Alhamdullilah, the lesson was not lost on me. However, not everyone is lucky enough to go though life with the opportunity to learn this lesson from Allah. Its a tough lesson to learn, but one that elevates you to the next level of consciousness.
