Read and sign the pledge here:

Some people say Islam is a religion of peace and that Islam has been hijacked by extremists, terrorists, and stealth jihadists who twist and distort the peaceful teachings of the Quran and quote it out of context.

Others say that political, supremacist, and even violent teachings are fundamental to Islam, and that people who say otherwise either haven’t read the Quran or are protecting Islam with religious deception (taqiyya).

We have important decisions ahead of us, and we need to be knowledgeable voters. I therefore pledge to read the Quran and find out for myself what is true about Islam.

Frequently Asked Question

Question: What if the Quran you recommend in the sidebar is somehow biased or not authentic?

Answer: This is surprisingly easy to find out for yourself. I had the same concern when I bought my first copy of A Simple Koran. So I checked it against my other Quran. I had already tried reading a standard-issue Quran I bought at my local bookstore.

So I checked verse against verse until I was satisfied it was authentic. Each chapter and verse of the Quran is numbered, so it is easy to cross-check like this.

You can do it online as well. Lots of web sites have the entire Quran available to read online. Here are a few: A Chronological Qur'an, IslamiCity, USC, NobleQuran, The Koran, The Holy Quran, The Quran, Pickthall's Quran, Yusuf Ali Quran, Rodwell's Koran, Quran, Skeptics Annotated Quran.
