A Two-Hour Koran (A Taste of Islam) Summary

A Two-Hour Koran is condensed and abridged, covering the most important elements of the Koran that concern non-Muslims. Standard Korans are widely known to be difficult to comprehend, but this version allows the listener to understand the basics of the Koran in the time it takes to watch a professional sports event.

The standard Korans are arranged by length of chapter, not in chronological order, and do not include the life of Mohammed for context. These Korans have no time reference, no Mohammed, and no story. Therefore, they are difficult to understand.

A Two-Hour Koran weaves Mohammed’s life back into the Koran so the verses have context and meaning. Everything is in time order, and the original story has been restored, providing the listener with a taste of Islam. This Koran concentrates on the political verses, or those verses that impact the non-Muslim.

Once you have listened to A Two-Hour Koran, you can pick up any Koran in the bookstore and make sense of what you are reading.

    The Life of Mohammed: The Sira is a condensed version of the biography of Mohammed, a man who became the first ruler of a united Arabia and laid the foundation for the empire of Islam. The Sira is not just a biography but it is also a sacred Islamic text of how devout Muslims should conduct their life. Mohammed's life is an epic story. He was an orphan who rose from poverty to become the first ruler of all of Arabia. He created a new religion, new methods of war, and a new political system, including a legal code, the Sharia.

    Islam is a religion, a culture, and a political system. The political system has its own body of laws, called the Sharia, which is derived from the Koran, the Sira (Mohammed’s biography) and the Hadith (Mohammed’s traditions). The Sharia is Allah’s law and is considered superior to all other man-made laws. Many Sharia laws concern non-Muslims and how they are to be treated. Every demand that Muslims make is based on the idea of implementing Sharia law in our countries.

    The easiest way to learn about Islam is through the traditions of Mohammed called the Hadith. The Koran repeatedly commands every Muslim to follow the perfect example of Mohammed’s life, his words and deeds, referred to as the Sunna. The Sunna includes the Hadith (Mohammed’s traditions) and the Sira (Mohammed’s biography). Since there is not enough information in the Koran for Muslims to practice Islam and understand the doctrine, the easiest way to learn about it is from Mohammed’s traditions. The Hadith gives us fascinating and detailed accounts of his life.
