    1.When I was a boy, I saw Al Quran united people from different tribe in my country.

    2. After 9/11 2001, I could not believe that 17 Arab people killed 3000 innocent people, since than I learned al Quran in depth I found that in general, that Allah’s laws are not clear law, but a verse can has multiple meaning, that cause Muslim are divided, conflict, and cause Muslim kill each other. I think till today Ahmadiyya Muslim have been murdered more than 10000 people. More Syah Muslim murdered, and Others

    1. Those Muslim who has lovely heart they find Al Quran is a true guidance from God. They became a lovely Muslim.

    2. Those Muslim who has hatred in their heart they find Al Quran the source of evil and then became the extremist Muslim and a terrorist. Terrorist kill innocent people in the name of Islam.

    Love is the seed of peace, prosperity and happiness
    But hatred is the seed of Evil, violence, disgrace and poverty.

    So Al Quran can be used as a source of good things
    But also Al Quran can be used as source of evil, violence and terrorist as the extremist Muslim see the Al Quran.

    Why a Muslim has a hatred in side of his heart?
    Because there is a cleric as Evil agent to spread hatred to others. A Evil cleric has children’s children and so on
    They spread hatred to others till the end of the world

    Al Quran can divide Muslim to many sect of Muslim in 21 Century. Because God’s laws have many meanings ir interpretation. Very sad and pity.

    This is the fact cannot be denied it.
    What do you think ? Tell me!

    Hold fast, all of you, to the cord of Allah, and be not divided. Remember the blessing of Allah upon you: When you were enemies to each other, and He brought your hearts together, so that, you became brothers through His blessing. You were at the brink of a pit of Fire, then He saved you from it. This is how Allah makes His signs clear to you, so that you may take the right path. (103)

    The purpose Allah sent down Al Quran to save Arab’s tribes from killing each other.
    Unfortunately, after Prophet died, Arab’s tribed turned away from Al Quran and then kill one another till today and so on. Very sad
