Muslims who abide by the Qur'an are the most modern people in their environments
God explains everything in the finest and wisest manner in the Qur’an, and reveals the true path to people through it. People who abide by the Qur’an are those who think most rationally, always make the best decisions, behave best and are the finest quality, most select, lovable and compassionate people in the world, who harm no-one but who benefit themselves and all those around them.
Under the influence of some publications opposed to belief in God and religious moral values, however, some people have a misconceived idea of Muslims and think they are not all modern or rational. Of course the role of some people who describe themselves as Muslims, but who live in a manner far removed from the moral values commanded by God in the Qur’an, in the formation of that mistaken view cannot be denied.
The fact is that every Muslim who embodies the moral virtues enjoined in the Qur’an is not only modern, but super-modern and exceedingly rational. The nobility in their appearance, demeanor and behavior carries them beyond the modernity and rationality of the time they live in. So much so that if the Prophet Muhammad (may God bless him and grant him peace) were to appear today he would immediately be recognized as the most contemporary person of this century. And even of the centuries to come.
