Free Quran Chapter 55: Most Gracious (Al-Rahmaan)

Learn from GOD that anyone can read the Quran and learn it, religious scholars don’t own it. I can’t stress enough how important it is that everyone, all people in the whole world, can read the Quran. GOD sent it down for us all, to find the truth and be guided so we can redeem our souls. Nobody has the right to tell you that you are not allowed to read it. Religious scholars, the imams, don’t own it. In this chapter GOD tells you to have confidence in your own ability to seek the truth and to stop depending on others in your spiritual journey.
