Reinterpreting the Quran

The Quran should be interpreted in any other way than its explicit meaning. A book that claims to be a book of guidance must be clear and without equivocation, leaving no room for interpretation and confusion. If it does, it is no longer a clear book of guidance. Ascribing esoteric meanings to the Quran that changes its meaning is distortion of its message. The so called "reformers of Islam" try to reinterpret it and twist its meaning to make it more palatable.

It was a religion that encouraged its followers to go after knowledge and to be inquisitive. It was a religion that was in harmony with science and reason.
