Tony Blair Reads Al Quran

Islam will stand tall forever. Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister of Britain, says he reads the Al Quran partly to understand some of the things happening in the world, but mainly just because it is instructive.

He said that by reading the Al Quran he ensured that he remain as "faith-literate" which he believes that being "faith-literate" is important in today's globalised world.

The reading helps him in his current job as a Middle East envoy for the Quartet of the United Nations, United States, Russia and European Union. According to him, the Al Quran is a reforming book, extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition.Tony Blair says the Al Quran is very practical and way ahead of its time in matters of women, marriage and governance.

Tony Blair praised the religion of Islam as "beautiful" and the Messenger of Islam Prophet Muhammad as being enormously the 'civilising force' for the success of this religion.

Tony Blair interest in the Al Quran is not equating interest in Islam with anxiety over extremism. It is his interest in finding out what moves and motivates a muslim.

With expanding muslim population in Britain and in particular in Europe I believe a third opinion on Islam through the Al Quran is going to add more height to Islam.
