“Certainly, We have brought them a Book (the Quran) which We have explained in detail with knowledge, a guidance and a mercy to people who believe." (Al-A'raf: 52)
I don't look at is as a rule book anymore because rule books are boring and there's nothing boring about the Quran. Why didn't I trust Allah when He said He sent it down to us as a gift out of His love and mercy, and not to make our lives difficult or cause stress. May Allah swt make us among those who develop love for the Quran, grow into a better person with it and find joy in spending time with it.
