The Quranic paradox or an enigma called Allah can be easily understood from an old Arabic euphemism. 

He who knows his own Self (Nafs), knows his Lord (Rabb). (man arafa nafsahu faqad arafa Rabbahu). 

Some says this is a hadith, nevertheless I conclude that this words of wisdom contains the very essence of the teaching of the book Quran. The subject of the book Quran is Man's Nafs and His Rabb or Man and his Sustainer. 

Some would say why it is important to know Rabb/ Allah? Without knowing our Rabb / Allah still our life is going smoothly so why the need to know Him? Isn't it our duty to know our provider, nourisher and our sustainer? We might be materially well off and seems to be happy superficially but still the feeling of missing out something or feeling of emptiness persist within all of us. Without knowing and getting connected to Allah our energy or the source we cannot operate or know our true purpose of life, our purpose of existence and our purpose of work and fulfill that feeling of emptiness or feeling of anxiousness lingering inside us.

For the sake of understanding I put forth an example of a bulb, tubelight, lamp, chandelier, fan, heater, microwave, refrigerator, mixer blender, washing machine, toaster, tv, motor, computers, mobile phones, etc. They all wants to know themselves, their utility and their purpose of existence. Their difference in utility or design is useless even if they know their designer. Their purpose of design is useless if they are not connected with the source. Some of them are expensive appliances and some of them are complicated machines but without connection to the power they are futile or purposeless. They want to know their purpose, their utility, without that they are lying dormant. Just like us they want to know their path. All the appliances have their catalogue attached with them but that is not sufficient for them to operate. They also need to connect with the power or the energy to operate.

The common source between all of them is Electricity. Without the connection to electrical power they are heap of scrap, they are lifeless, useless, lying dormant. Just like us without proper connection with the script and the energy we are straying purposeless, our existence is not beneficial to mankind.

Man is the most complicated machine of all the known appliances. But without the Power or the Energy man is nothing. The Power / Energy is the part and parcel of his evolutionary cycle. The Power is the Designer, the Evolver, the Creator and It cannot be cutoff from the design, evolution, creation, form, model or the master piece. It has to be 24/7 with the master piece because the master piece is actually is the actual master of that piece of work. 

The master is the Malik (Owner) as well as the Khaliq ((Evolver) of His own work. He is the Owner of the entire workshop and without the involvement of His Ruh (Spirit) nothing works. The entire work is the Manifestation of His Spirit. We belong to Him and to Him we all return. The purpose of our life to know Him and serve Him. Without knowing Him we cannot serve Him. We have been evolved or created in His image or character (30:30). But we give too much importance to ourselves, to life and death. In truth we are nothing but His ordinary slaves. We have arrived empty handed and will go empty handed but we keep on accumulating as if our stay is permanent and we are independent without any debts to repay.

Our purpose to understand our script (al-kitab) and follow the role or service or position assigned to us. Our job satisfaction or peace or Islam is in knowing our script and implementing in our own life. This is the best Ibadah or Service to Allah or Mankind. 

Work is worship if done according to our embedded script (Al-Kitab)

Al-Kitab - The Embedded Script or the Message Within is sufficient for human guidance. No "holy scriptural" guidance is needed. Al-Kitab in the context of the book Quran is our own Book of Guidance  our Operating Manual , a Reminder - This is the only Book of God specifically designed and different for every individual  - To know our own book we do not require any expertise in any foreign language. Any tom, dick and harry can read his script i.e The Book of Allah because it is his/her embedded book, he / she just need to be mindful (mutaqi) about it - The physical book Quran is made up of Arabic syntax derived Middle Eastern language. The 114 chapter book is not our Quran because it is not in our language. Linguistically the word Quranan arabiyyan (12:2) does not point to this physical book. Here the word Quranan and Arabiyyan is not proper noun. The phrase Quranan arbiyyan signifies that the signs coming out from our inner script is clear, articulate and tangible - Kitabi mubin means clear script, which does not require any outside light to shine, it lights on its own light (12:1)Quranan is our own compilation of thoughts coming out of Al-Kitab. The word arabiyyan means clear, articulate, mother tongue. The opposite of word Arabi is Ajmi. The word Ajmi means which is foreign, intangible, not clear.

To read a foreign language book like Quran we need to appoint a learned teacher of that language or attend a good school to infer the nuances of that language and comprehend its message. Whereas to read, study and understand the Book of Allah we do not require any teacher or school, because Rehman is the Teacher -  Rehman is the Teacher of our own embedded Quran which is in our own language. In other words we don't require a teacher to study our inner Quran, it is self explanatory, self witnessing and self experiencing for those who are mindful, thoughtful, who ponder, contemplate on their own existence or origin.

The Book of Allah does not have any language barrier it is easy, even an illiterate can understand it provided he / she has wisdom. The Book of Allah is a compilation of signs and only tahir (clean from all preconceived notions) & mutaqi (cautious, mindful, observant) can decode its sign. It is an individual's book of signs that is present within everyone of us, we just need to remember / recall (zikr) it. The book or the inner script is in our memory (zikr), we just need to activate it, that's why Al-Quran is also called Al-Zikr (The Reminder) and this Zikr will always be guarded and preserved.

We have forgotten our original nature, and the foreign language book of 114 chapters does not remind us of anything. We have lost the fitrat of Allah because of indoctrination from parents, teachers and environment. The inner script is our true Imam (leader). Our character is same as Allah there is no two opinions about it. All characters belong to Allah. In simple and clear words even bad characters also belongs to Allah. The evolution of human mindset depends upon which characters we choose to become. 

"We just need to set our focus / face / attention sincerely towards *repayment of debts (Deen). This is the main character / nature (fitrat) of Allah on which the mindset of human beings are molded. There is no change in the pattern if you really want to evolve Allah in you. That is the establishment of Deen. But most mindsets are not aware of it." 30:30 - interpretation.

Repayment of our Debts to our Owner (Malik) is the true Deen which can bring true Peace (Islam). We just need to establish Balance (mizaan) and not follow Extreme path.

I am using masculine pronoun for Allah for the sake of convenience. Allah is Energy and It is above genders.


Allah knows His Self (Nafs), He knows His requirements, He knows His desire and He knows what must be done to fulfill it. 


There is nothing without Allah, He is All Encompassing (Wasiun), Apparent (Zahirun) and Hidden (Batin). He is Evolver (Khaliq), Foremost (Awal) and the Delayer (Aakhir).


Without Allah we are Satan and with Allah we are at Peace (Darul Salam - 8:127). Either we serve Allah or we serve Satan the choice is ours. 


Allah Drive us and we drive our own allah. Allah can replace us if He is not satisfied with our driving but we cannot replace our Owner (Malik) or change His Vehicle, because the Home of the Owner (Malik) is inside us.


The Behaviour of the Owner depends upon our service. The Owner is 24x7 with the servant, He is aware of everything, a servant cannot fool His Master (Rehman) because the Master or the Teacher is Present everywhere, everytime, Watching every minute details. 


It is upto us whether to become a friend (wali) of Allah or friend (wali) of Satan. Allah and Satan are two sides of the same Coin. It is upto us to choose the side.

The Owner expects that His servants know their job and its purpose. The Owner (Malik) can change His character according to services provided by His servants. The Master (Rehman) wants His servants to be honest with the script and work according to the script they have been provided.  The Master (Rehman) is 24x7 ready to Teach provided His students are ready to learn or see within. 


The Owner is Benevolent as long as His servants serve Him properly and is obedient to the assigned task but if they disobey Him and try to corrupt His Kingdom then the character of the Owner changes and He becomes Satan. 


There are no two Powers or Owners. All Power belongs to One Allah, Satan is the other side from the same Allah (min duni Allah). - 7:30


Who are we ? We are a subordinate part of Allah trying to return back (2:156) to the Natural State of Allah (Fitrati Allah) on which He has evolved mankind (Nas). 30:30

The topic of the book Quran is all about the human mindset. This 114 chapter book emphasizes mankind to observe, to be cautious and instructs them to think, contemplate and ponder over our own embedded script (al-kitab) in order to get guidance through it & have a peaceful, sound and wise mindset. 

Quran is not a book of law as generally believed. The theme of the book Quran is "As you sow, so shall you reap". The book discusses about the consequences of our intentions, thoughts and actions. The book also discusses about the core psyche (nafs) of human beings.

Our entire universe is settled in our own mindset. Our own thoughts are the makers / breakers of our world or evolver of our mindset. Our mindset is our true world. Destruction of strong beliefs or old concepts and birth of new ideas is our moment of Qiyamah or permanent awakening. Peaceful and sound mindset is the most basic criteria to achieve positive productivity, stability in our inner self which will reflect or manifest in our outside behaviour. We are living in our own mindset that consists of our own community of various thoughts. 

We all talk about Peace, but to offer Peace to others; first we need to have Peace in our own selves. A mind full of hate, anger, malice, jealousy, impurities, ego, rivalry, ignorance, arrogance,  superiority and pride cannot attain the state of a peaceful mind. Complete submittal to peace in all circumstances is true Islam and it is not monopoly of Arabs or Muslims. Islam is just an Arabic word for Peace, Shanti, Shalom and Salam. The entire theme of the book is about succeeding to become a peaceful soul or to have a sound, balanced and creative mind. A real Muslim is one who has sound, stable and peaceful mind, irrespective of his / her cultural background.

Nowadays to say that religion Islam signifies submission to Peace (Salam) at all cost has become a laughing stock and to say such thing is often being labeled as apologetic by its adversaries. Those who called themselves Muslims are being associated with bad temperament, ill mannerism, indiscipline, immorality, illiteracy, rudeness, intolerance, communal and terrorism. Label Muslims ignore these facts about themselves and still feel proud to identify themselves as Muslims. Fulfilling all religious rituals is a matter of big achievement for them, humanity has taken backseat.

The labeled Muslims have reserved or rather hijacked all good characters like muslim, momin, sauleh, mutaqi, muhsin from the book Quran for themselves and they have assigned all bad characters like kafir, mushrik, fasiq, munafiq, zaleem, najis, for the non muslims. 

The traditional Muslims believe that only righteous deeds are not sufficient to be qualified as a good human being. The religionists believe it is not enough if you are good, righteous, helpful, humble person. Carrying an Islamic Arabic tag with you or professing the magical formula of la ilaha ilallah muhammadurasullah is an ultimate ticket to enter the blissful state in Jannah. Such nonsense limits the magnanimous Islam as a cult religion while the message of book Quran carries universal appeal.

The message of the book Quran is put to trail again and again by different groups of antagonists around the world, thanks to the poor translation; but their accusation is also justifiable in the behaviour of the followers of the Quran. It's because of the bad behaviour of the labelled Muslims; the book Quran has to face the brunt.

The main weapon to malign “Muslims” is the centuries old translations that are merely a copy / paste chain of continuous similar line of wrong interpretations. The task of the adversaries of religion Islam becomes easier because of our blind faith on those translations which instruct us to preach, convert or kill the people who does not subscribe to the ideology of the book Quran. Almost every "Muslim" wished to have Islamic Rule on Earth or Successor on Earth, thanks to wrong interpretation of Arabic phrase خَلَائِفَ فِي الْأَرْضِ and on the basis of this interpretation they want to establish their version of "Islamic" governance.

We have made the translation and the exegesis of scholars above criticism as though they are divine. To question any translation or the exegesis of scholars is to invite wrath and isolation from main stream Islam or from the sub-sects or from some group of unconventional thinkers on social media.

In peace we have opportunity to think, contemplate, ponder, meditate and evolve. The concept of inner peace has become alien in Islam on the contrary one who speaks of non-violence, compromise, settlement, acceptance, tolerance, accommodation are labelled as coward, non-believer, faithless, traitor and escapist.

One thing is sure that we cannot achieve outer peace without inner peace; sadly nobody relates Islam with inner peace and tolerance,  not even the so called Muslims believe this, thanks to the present translation / interpretation and concocted history. We have made the entire Islam the religion of appeasement of God through rituals, rote learning and aggression.

Some recent intellectuals relate Quranic message with the establishing a just and fair society. Though the subject of formation of just and fair governance is good but it is not the topic of the book Quran. 

The topic of establishing good governance is more appealing and soothing to simple "Muslims" all over the world because they too are suffering from corrupt despotic rulers and their officials. "Muslims" look towards Quran in hope to change their destiny so they try to find "Madina Charter" through the Quranic interpretation. Many wait for some messiah to change the plight before the end of this world. 

Some  "intelligent Muslims" believe that the book Quran cannot be translated word by word so they have a freehand to interpolate the pure message with manipulations. The vital important Quranic terms are twisted to suit the idea of formation of "Islamic Socialism" through Quranic verses.

The vibrant terminologies like Allah, Rasul, Nabi, Malaikah, Shaitaan, Salat, Zakat, Saum, Hajj, Nisa, Rajul are manipulated to fit into the message of "Islamic Socialism" of the book Quran. This method of translation is equally harmful like the method of translating Qur'an on the basis of Shaane Nuzool (circumstances of revelation).

People want one verse references and that too from the translations of their favourite scholars. People often ask me about my understanding of the book Quran. My theme of the book Quran is new, my translation is under process, its a big task to translate the entire book in a short time when the concept it totally new. Picking and choosing one verse to justify our version is an act of injustice with the entire context of the book Quran.

It is a fact that we all are victim of crony capitalism, tyrant rulers and religious priesthoods and we are aware of it. The need of the hour is to become Ibrahim, Musa, Isa, and wipe out these evil  forces. But this is impossible if we follow the manipulated theme of establishing just and fair governance in the world when we ourselves are drowned in superficial knowledge. Without correct knowledge and conduct we will be wiped out from the face of the earth instead of the communities we are targeting to change.

The brief message to those who call themselves Muslims is, they must reform by accepting their ignorance, use aqal, acquire ilm, unlearn what they learnt and practice sabr.

ALLAH and ilah


Allah & ilah 

The term Allah and ilah must be inferred in the context of our psyche (nafs / inner self) which is the actual theme of the entire book Quran. The subject of the book Quran is not about rules of nature or the absolute laws of physics, chemistry or the society.

The word ilah linguistically signifies something which we devotedly serve, worship and adore but sadly without understanding. The element or the activity that captivates or allures us is our ilah (god). Ego can be our ilah, greed can be an ilah and fear can be our ilah too. A God / god is an ilah of the religionists because their god is based on greed, reverence, fear and blind faith.

One thing must be very clear that Quranic Allah is not like a traditional God / god / ilah. The Quranic Allah does not require our worship, praise, adoration or our captivation. The term Allah is made with the combination of two words laam (ل) represents the word FOR and hu (ه) represents the word HIM - لَهُ - lahu (له), please refer 112:4 for understanding له (lahu). When definite article Al ال is attached to lahu له it becomes Allah (اللَّهُ).

The term Allah اللَّهُ is not a capital of ilah إِلَٰهٌ as popularly inferred. There cannot be big god and small god in Islamic philosophy. I strongly believe that the term Allah is a combination of a definite article plus preposition and pronoun; it is not a single word. The term Allah / allah is represented in the book Quran as masculine pronoun هُوَ - huwa - He - In Arabic grammar pronouns are called zameer (ضمير). And zameer means conscience, a voice that speaks, judges, it is a voice of our heart or conscience. 

Definition of Allah through Surah Ikhlas 

In 112:1 - Say Huwa is Allah ahadun - the essence of this verse is He / It can be anybody's conscience or anyone's conscience is Allah. Here the word هُوَ represents conscience.

The essence of verse 112:2 is that Voice of Conscience is Samad (Independent). 

112:3 The Voice / Allah / Energy neither creates / produces / gives birth / begets nor is born / begotten. 

The last verse 112:4 - And nor there is for  it / Him any comparison / equivalent.

The entire subject of the book Quran is inner self or conscience. The main subject of the book Quran is conscience of mankind and how the inner voices effects upon the thinking process and behaviour of individuals.  The entire life and death of human being is product of his / her own thought process.

The book Quran only instructs us that we give our sincere attention to observation, learn and seek knowledge in order to recognise and understand the cause, the source or the energy that effect us. The quality of our conscience drives us. A fake source or tempting energy is Satan and the factual or original source is Allah according to my humble understanding of the book Quran.

The book Quran has nothing to do with Imaginary Heavenly God but it is a book about our own strength and weakness. God is the Balancer of Human mind that we all must strive to keep sound and stable. An unstable or an unsound God is Satan. The entire message of the book Quran is to understand the God and it's Kingdom inside us and not outside. There are no two powers inside us, Satan and Allah are two sides of the same coin. Good and Evil are not two different powers or energies but two extreme part of the same scale. We become what we feed.

Our evolutionary journey is from small alphabet g to the capital alphabet G of God. We the small g is never separate from the big G, they are units of the same scale and have a strong connection with IT. The book Quran refers to Allah with capital A and allah with small a too, just like a drop 💧 and Ocean 🌊, they are not separate but One and the Same. 


Thursday 14 September 2023



The translation and the interpretation of the book Quran are totally flawed, but not the Arabic script. The Allah of the book Quran is not concerned what we eat, drink or dress or is worried about our sexual preferences. 

The Arabic term Allah of the book Quran is not used for God of any religion but it is used for our own conscience, it is person's own moral sense of right and wrong. 

Allah is the superior than Satan in terms of moral ground and Satan is a low or degraded part of Allah but possesses equal powers and grip like Allah although in negative shade. Allah and Satan are two sides of the same coin. 

We become what we feed our conscience through our own thoughts. Our own conscience is our Guide. Service to Allah is actually service to conscience. What we serve will be served back to us. Allah resides in clear, pure and humble conscience. 

Rabb is the provider of awareness to the conscience, I infer rabb as Consciousness. There are different level of consciousness and Allah resides in each levels but with different levels of consciousness or awareness. Awareness is knowledge and lack of awareness is ignorance, arrogance and pride, a trait of Satan. 

The God of religion Islam is an angry, jealous, insecure, moody, narcissist, proud, ignorant, boastful and arrogant God. The Allah of the book Quran has cast itself in human mould and if not taken proper precaution or care He / It is capable of becoming Satan too. So we need to be careful about our Allah not turning into Satan. That’s the reason taqwa (diligence / caution) is an important part of the message of the book Quran.

The entire perception of most of the religious text including the book Quran is wrongly focused on idolizing or vilifying the personalities rather than concentrating on real objective of the knowledge of the subject matter. The more we increase in exoteric knowledge, the more we drift away from the original message of those religious texts.
The ancient religious scriptures were not meant for worldly knowledge (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, History, Geography, Astronomy, Oceanography, Orology or body anatomy . There are better books available if we need to understand those important subjects.
The core theme of any religious scriptures that I am aware of is 'KNOW YOUR SELF'



All spiritual knowledge is for well being of our spirit that is unfortunately turned into religious dogma.
Spiritual knowledge is the food / provision (rizq) for our internal world which we must possess all the time. This Spiritual knowledge when turns into spiritual energy, helps us to boost our happiness, peace and overcome all type of tension and depression.
Boosting our energy to fight our internal enemies is the main purpose of all religious scriptures. The philosophy of Islam is about love and fighting or overcoming our internal enemies, it has nothing to do with materialistic world.
Spiritual knowledge has nothing to do with materialistic knowledge or attachments however it helps us to develop us to face the cruel / unjust world. Worldly knowledge can be taught in school and colleges that helps us to understand the immediate necessities of life or material world.
Spiritual knowledge helps us to face the challenges of the material world, it control or balance all type of fear, greed, temptation and insecurities that causes imbalances in our life.
The spiritual knowledge and materialistic knowledge does not complement each other on the contrary the spiritual knowledge is a shield that stops the worldly attachments to enter in our pure, uncorrupted system of conscience.
