Muslims believe the Quran to be a guide from God, "for all mankind, at all times, and till the end of time". That is a matter of faith.
The essence of the Quran is Al-amr bi 'l-ma’ruf wa 'n-nahy ani 'l-munkar. That message is repeated many times in our holy book. The approximate translation is, "Command good and forbid evil" or in my Malay, "Biasakan yang baik, jauhi yang jahat". As succinct and elegant in both languages as it is in the original classical Arabic.
This central message is often missed in the thick tomes of religious scholars, erudite sermons of bedecked ulamas and frenzied jingoisms of zealous jihadists.
