The Universal Message

A wholesome mind has no option other than to accept the challenging gift of life and to try to interact with creation in smooth and natural ways, harmonious with body, mind and heart.


The dot from which creation began is a puzzle. The Qur’an offers us insights into the creation myth of Adam, of good and evil, and the temporal hierarchies of matter, form, essence and spirit. Dr. Adnan AlAdnani and Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri consider the rise of human consciousness and intelligence emerging from divine mystery through divine mercy, animated by common drives that relate to desired destinies.

A penetrating discussion of insights into the mysteries of our existence and human consciousness. Dr. AlAdnani and Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri bring a unifying vision and understanding of the Qur’anic account of creation, sharpened by their own research into multi-dimensional aspects of reality.

The Universal Qur'an

The Noble Qur’an is universal and useful at all times and for all people. This belief motivated Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri to select the verses that are clearly universal. Shaykh Fadhlalla rendered the meanings of the verses in an easily accessible way for the modern reader. The verses selected are renderings of the inner meaning, rather than a traditional translation.

The present needs of human beings in this day and age require more reference to the Source of creation, and Divine Light – which are largely Meccan verses, of which The Universal Quran presents a selection.

The selected verses help with personal transformation and the rise in consciousness and Universal Truth, rather than with relationship, community, law, and other aspects of conduct to help recharge spiritually.

The miracle of the Noble Qur’an is that its verses repeatedly reveal the seamless connection between the infinite, unseen, cosmic lights with finite, relative, and limited earthly consciousness. This selection of key verses is universally useful for all times and for all people for every moment in the human journey.
