Yeah I have an interesting relationship with the Qur’an these days. I still do recite it almost weekly, but I view it entirely differently now, obviously.
But I feel like I’m well beyond the “SEE! IT’S NOT FROM GOD BECAUSE IT SAYS X” phase. I just don’t care about that part anymore since I’m not even expecting it to be entirely accurate, moral, or relevant to modern times. Instead, my mind wanders a lot to the place of why certain verses are included where they are, especially given the seemingly random nature of the placing of many verses. There seems to be some clear instances of splicing, cutting, and pasting that get me thinking about what circumstances must have led to the text turning out the way it did.
And I still can’t help but reminisce about the incantations of the haunting voice of Hussain Al-ash-Shaikh. It’ll always remind me of tahajjud in Madinah. I’ll post his Suratul Anfal here.
It is very interesting to read quran in this way.
Like when muhammad married wife of zaid, Allah sent down verses regarding marriage with wife of so called son or something like that.
I don't remember the complete story now.
Quran is story book of Muhammad's life.
Wars, marriages ... etc etc.
You will enjoy it.
