"Islam should be presented without any fanaticism. Without any stress on our having the only possible way and the others are lost. Moderation in all forms is a basic demand of Islam."

"Every age requires a new approach to the Quran for the simple reason that the Quran is made for all ages. It is our duty to look for deeper meanings in the Quran in order to increase our knowledge and experience. The Quran wants your intellect to be always active and trying to approach the message of God. God himself dedicated this book to people who think."

Muhammad Asad (converted from Judaism to Islam, lived in the Middle Eeat, and wrote many books including his famous "The Message of the Qur'an" translation.

A wonderful video. Thank you for sharing brother Mubashir.

His rendition "The Message of the Quran" is a true asset in the library of great translations of the Quran.  The ending comments in the video were so pertinent. Muhammad Asad stood against extremism and fanatacism throughout his life, yet as the visitor noted "Poor guy, he's still struggling with extremists even in his grave!"
