Become Muslim First.
I am a human being or an Insaan in Arabic / Urdu -
My pen name is Ahle Aqal, a citizen of Planet Earth. Neither am I a Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Jew nor an Atheist etc. I do not belong to any caste, creed and race that divide Humanity. I care for everyone. This is what I learned from my study of the book Quran. Note for me the book Quran is not a religious book.
In short the instructions of the book Quran are for people who are compassionate, social and merciful [Homosapiens / Insaan]. We cannot complete the definition of human being if we are not helpful to other human beings. To help other human being we need to be capable. We cannot serve tea to other people if our own cup is empty. For that we need to fill our own cup with love, peace and soundness first. The essence of this statement is that first we must become Momin **[safe / secure]** and Muslim **[sound / peaceful],** then only we can serve peace, soundness, safety and security to others, otherwise it will be just a pipe dream without any positive result.
The main emphasis of the book Quran is to become safe, secure, sound and peaceful. We cannot become Muslim unless we have sound health, wealth and peaceful mind irrespective of cultural and religious background. We cannot become Momin if we are not safe and secure financially, health wise and mentally. These are the basics which all mankind must know. The message of the book Quran is for thinkers and researchers, how anyone can become a good thinker or researcher if his stomach is empty, his health is weak and mentally he is disturbed.
If one cannot take care of himself how is going to take care of others? One who lacks these basics economics cannot become Muslim or Momin. The main criterion to understand the book Quran is to have sound health, mind and is not worried about his day to day survival. The message of the book is for those who are above the situation of survival. I always advice people who want to understand Quran to earn first, pay taxes then only they can become Muslim / Momin a basic eligibility to understand other deep sciences.
After we are satisfied / content with our own survival [including our family] we can go to study the nuance of understanding **Kalimah Shahdah, Salat, Zakat, Saum and Hajj** etc. These are development tools for further our own mental evolution. The eligibility to understand Kalimah Shahdah, Salat, Zakat, Saum and Hajj etc is to become Muslim and Momin first. If we are not sound and secure **[Muslim / Momin]**all these talks of providing Peace, Harmony or performing different religious / cultural rituals are futile.
