Qur’an: A Living
Miracle in Mortal Human Hands

Dr. Pasha

(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)


That is what the Qur’an is – a living miracle in mortal human hands. Its very name is a wonder to behold. For, it is called the Qur’an, which means reading, something to read, the thing to be read.

Anyone who studies the Qur’an with any sincerity and seriousness can see the miracles that are contained in every page and passage of the Qur’an. That is why passages of the Qur’an are called Aayats because of their being divine and miraculous signs. In fact everything about the Qur’an is a miracle.

The fact that a book should be delivered to the world by a man without the ability to read or write is a miracle. The fact that such a book should be referred to by the title of Qur’an – Reading – is a miracle. The fact that such a book should begin with a proclamation of its being a book of guidance is a miracle.

The fact that 1400 years before much of the rest of the world woke up to it, this book should be using gender inclusive expressions like “The Human Being” is a miracle. The fact that hundreds of years before much of the rest of the world even knew what it was, this book should be using an expression like “The People” – not Mankind but “The People” – is a miracle.

The fact that 1400 years ago this book should declare men and women equal in rights and rewards is a miracle. The fact that this book should have a chapter called “The Women” and another chapter called “The People” and yet another chapter called “The Pen” is a miracle.

The fact that this book is still in exactly the same shape and form in which it was originally delivered 1400 years ago is a miracle. The fact that this book has a chapter called “Maryam” – Mary, the blessed mother of Jesus, God bless him – is a miracle. The fact that this book most eloquently and powerfully defends the virgin birth of Jesus, God bless him, is a miracle.

The fact that this book takes the side of Moses, God bless him, against the Egyptian Pharaoh, is a Miracle. The fact that this book sides with the Christian Romans against the Pagan Persians and their Pagan Arab admirers is a miracle.

The fact that this book, all 6666 Aayats – passages – of it, is memorized cover to cover by millions of people to this day is a miracle. The fact that this book is recited verbatim five times a day all over the world is a miracle.

At a time when reading was mostly the prerogative of the rich and the powerful, the royals and the nobles, the clerics and the priests, and at a time when the common man was often forbidden from reading, at times on pain of death, the Qur’an issued a clarion for all people to read. What could be a greater miracle than that?

These are just some examples of how miracles abound in the Qur’an. Otherwise, everything about the Qur’an – its form, its content, its history and its place in the modern world – is a miracle. In fact, it is fair to say that the story of the world for the past 1400 years is one of the greatest miracles of the Qur’an. For, it is a story of the world trying to catch up with the Qur’an and its teachings.

All one needs to see the miracles of the Qur’an, and to cry out that Qur’an is indeed the word of God, is a clean and pure heart, an inquiring mind, an independent and noble spirit and an element of common sense and clear thinking. It does not matter what one’s age, gender, education, politics or “religion” is.

Come and find out how the Qur’an is divine guidance for those who care, and how it is a light to illumine all aspects of human life, and how it is a cure for all that ails the human heart and vitiates the human condition.

Attend the Qur’an Program that has been offered by Dr. Pasha on either side of the Atlantic. In this program, Dr. Pasha uses the language of the Qur’an to directly and personally connect the participants with the Qur’an. He also uses Islamic as well as Western and other knowledge and scholarship from around the world to make the meaning of the Qur’an clear. The result is a highly absorbing and interactive program which makes the Aayaat of the Qur’an come alive to the participants.

And yet no prior knowledge of the Arabic language is required. All you need is a copy of the Qur’an with translation – and a positive and respectful attitude. For, without a proper attitude, you will learn nothing, see nothing, feel nothing, and will leave the program with nothing. The Qur’an will freeze up on you and you will come out cold and dazed.

Some major themes Dr. Pasha has addressed in the past are:

1. Falling in love with the Qur’an.

2. Personalizing the Qur’an.

3. Calling Allah.

4. Protection from Evil.

Future themes will include, Inshallah:

1. Seeking Refuge.

2. Miracles in the Qur’an.

3. Protection from Evil, Part II.

4. Calling Allah, Part II.

Participants on either side of the Atlantic have been highly supportive of the program and, by the grace of God, they have said some most encouraging and wonderful things. Feedback from participants includes comments below:

“I can’t wait for the next program.”

“For the first time I feel connected to the Qur’an.”

“I’m looking forward to another enlightening weekend.”

“How can we help to have Dr. Pasha come more often to do this program?”

“For the first time I really feel like I have a friend in Allah. Thanks to Dr. Pasha.”

“It’s been 2 days, but I don’t feel tired or drained. Can’t we go on for some more?”

“This program is really unique – and I have never had such a direct approach to the Qur’an.”

“I see things in the Qur’an that I never saw before.”

“I am a doctor and I found this program to be a mind-blowing experience.”

“I am doing a Ph.D. in linguistics. But never before did I see the Qur’an in this light.”

“Each person who has attended is testimony to the difference that this program has made to their lives.”

“I found the two days to be one of the best (if not THE BEST) two days spent studying in all my years of learning. This is not just concerning an Islamic topic but any sort of study that I have done in my life – and I have been attending seminars, conferences, training and learning events for the best part of some 31 years.”

“Everything made such complete sense and the simplicity of the message was something to behold.”

So, come and join us in the Qur’an Program!

And join us in the Qur’an Campaign that is being launched to take Qur’an to every home and heart that needs it.

God bless all! May his mercy envelop all – and it does!
