Caption “This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.” (The Holy Qur'an, verse fragment from Surah Al-Maeda 5:3) This verse of completion and perfection implies that there is no room for addition or subtraction to the religion of Islam after “This day”, or the verse is falsified. What or when “This day” was, or what was the significance of events transpiring on “This day” that caused this verse to be revealed and inserted in what appears to be a random place, as a verse fragment of 5:3, is not stated in the Holy Qur'an. Indeed, many verses of great import are similarly contextless, or both open-ended as well as contextless, and therefore perennially ripe for self-interpretation. This makes possible a multiplicity of 'kosher' misinterpretations of the religion of Islam by the learned scholars imparting any meaning to the open-ended and contextless verses that suit their mental genius or their self-interest, but without altering the syntactic and overt structural composition of the text of the Holy Qur'an. This book, Hijacking The Holy Qur'an And Its Religion Islam, illustrates how such plurality of interpretations is in fact enabled by the Holy Qur'an itself – by design! This is perhaps why the Holy Qur'an also states the following general principle both unequivocally and categorically, leaving no room for interpretation: “If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute” (Surah Al-Maeda 5:48) Evidently, having plurality of interpretations and disagreements among believers was not just anticipated by the Holy Qur'an or the categorical counsel in 5:48 would not exist, but keeping the verses contextless and open-ended made it even easier to disagree on their meaning. Duh! The very existence of open-endedness and contextlessness in many rich verses of the Holy Qur'an itself indicates that its Author designed His Message in such an abstruse manner deliberately to enable a multiplicity of interpretations. And He admonished the believers to not quarrel about their disagreements amongst themselves. At the same time, to guide all believers of different persuasions towards a pristine understanding of His Message, the Author also enjoined the genuine seekers of its understanding to approach the Holy Qur'an with a “cleansed heart”. That metaphor, which occurs repeatedly in the Holy Qur'an, can only mean to seek understanding without self-interest, without presuppositions, without agendas, and without inclination towards ideologies and socialized world views that instinctually predispose one towards one interpretation or another.
