As-salam Alaykum everyone.  Dear folks, read this and tell me, do you agree with what Dr.Bilal Philips says?   My opinion tells me that his perception is neither logical nor correct.  How can keeping the Quran close to you for spiritual comfort and peace of mind be considered "shirk?"  What's happening to this world?

Walaikum Salaam Sister Ruhi.   I don't agree with Dr. Bilal Philips either.  I do of course agree fully that simply wearing the Glorious Quran as amulet without ever reading and understanding it is not the right approach at all. But if you are a regular reader of the Quran with proper understanding of Quranic principles & facts, then additionally also wearing the Quran as an amulet is okay. It only symbolizes that it comforts you to keep the Words of Allah Almighty close to your heart.  It gives the feeling of having the protection of Allah Almighty because of your firm Faith in Him.  How can such a feeling and thought ever be considered wrong?  Please remember, the amulet is the Noble Quran, NOT anything else.  If any one wears amulets of souvenirs or writings from other sources such as spiritual leaders, celebrities etc. for protection against danger or as 'good luck charm' sort of nonsense .. then of course that would be totally wrong and complete shirk.  But how can keeping the Sublime Quran close to you be considered a violation from any stretch of the imagination is something I don't understand.  It only proves the arrogance of our so-called ulemas.

Unfortunately Muslims today have drifted so far from the Quran with their involvement in Wahabism and other strange ideas plus the very negative influence of Hadith, that seeking protection from Allah Almighty, The One and Only, is considered "shirk" according to the warped minds of these takfiris.  And if you follow the Quran only, you are called a "Quranist" which is supposed to be an insult.   I take it as the biggest compliment, Alhumdulilah .. and so should all true Muslims.  But that's the problem.  True Muslims are hardly left in this world any more.

Pretty amazing isn't it?  Allah Almighty tells us in His Final Message that we must adhere only and only to His Path.  That can only be the Quran.  Yes, I know as sister said, if you don't study the Quran and act according to its guidance but only roam about with an amulet is a wrong approach.  However, even then I would not call it "shirk" as long as the amulet is only the Quran and nothing else.

Looks like Bilal Philips is losing his mind like Haroon Yahya .. something that gradually happens with most of our ulemas as the scourge of Wahabiism keeps getting the better of them.

Many thanks for your prompt answers dear sisters.  I was thinking exactly on those lines as both of you explained.  When I first saw this image caption, it really left me with plenty of gasps and a spinning head!  Calling one's dependency on the Noble Quran a ""shirk"" ?? Indeed it can be taken as nothing other than arrogance and conceit of the human mind. 

JazekAllah khair and thanks again.
