But nobody saw any need to uproot their lives just because of a book. That would be ridiculous, right?
But he had read the book and he knew better.
Her grandfather immediately sent his son to Britain and the son eventually made it to the U.S. That was our friend's father. After a time, her grandparents made it to the U.S. too. But her grandfather's brother and parents died in the camps, as well as cousins, uncles, etc.
If you've read the Koran, you're in a similar predicament. It's all very clear to you. Islam's prime directive is spelled out unequivocally for anyone willing to read it. Regardless of what the people around you think, you actually know.
People who haven't read the Koran are naturally skeptical about what you say is in the book, or skeptical about its relevance in our modern world. But this skepticism can and must be overcome. We need to convince people to read the book, or tell them what's in it. Even if they don't read it, the fact that you keep urging them to read it will, all by itself, give weight to what you say about Islam, and lends a certain level of authority to what you say in your conversations with them.
And of course, if they read the book, you won't have to do anything else. Their eyes will be opened.
This is the fast track to achieving a population that is no longer in the dark about Islam: Push them to read the Koran.
