ASK ME ANYTHING: AUTHOR Paigham Mustafa has been researching and studying the Quran since 1988 and spent over 2 years writing his exposition producing a well annotated text that genuinely makes it a practical book of reference. With added clarity and accuracy of an improved translation, it is far easier to understand. This is an authoritative and accessible exposition in a way that others are not.
The Quran: God’s message to Mankind, Paigham Mustafa’s exposition was reviewed in the Sunday Times Scotland by Gillian Bowditch who said “He is is the kind of liberal, moderate Muslim voice politicians and faith leaders want to hear more of…” . Paigham Mustafa was also interviewed on BBC Radio Scotland by John Beattie on his news programme, on the Kaye Adams programme and has also contributed to the National and The Sunday Herald.
My aim is to show that people even from diverse cultures and beliefs are not that different - we all need the same things to live in peace and security, and that means the same core values and moral standards.
When religion, any religion, is stripped of its dress codes, rites and rituals, it must rely on universal Permanent Values – as are found in the Quran – and I want to bring communities together through these enduring principles of life.I want to show that what people see in the media or on the streets is not Islam. I want to show that the Quran defines people only by their conduct and not by their dress, rituals, customs or traditions.
Common values remove barriers and bring people together whatever their background; if people are good then society will also be good. I believe that to overcome fear and suspicion, we have to expose misconceptions prevalent in society in such a way that people don’t feel threatened, and that they will see Islam, not as a religion, but as the socio-economic system that it really is.
