I have read the Quran once. A desperate attempt at least. When I was twenty-six.
I’m not sure I finished it all. I read Sura’s – read for a year, and memorised verses, and pleaded Allah would allow the experience remain with me, through my life – and that the attempt would count for something at the time of my death…
And then I walked away from Allah, and gave the Quran to my sister, and could not understand the state of Islam as I found it, and the violence around it.
I have found that same doubt accost me from time to time, around God and Christians, around Jews and around Brahmins – the idea that God is theirs, and is cruel and harsh and partial, with laws to kill and to press upon….
I found this sometime ago, on YouTube.
I hope the future me can find it here, on my own page.
God is God.
