Calling the Quran amazing is not something done only by Muslims who have an appreciation for the book and who are pleased with it it has been labeled amazing by non-Muslims as well In fact even people who hate Islam very much have still called it amazing One thing which surprises nonmuslims who are examining the book very closely is that the Quran does not appear to them to be what they expected What they assume is that they have an old book which came fourteen centuries ago from the Arabian desert and they expect that the book should look something like that - an old book from the desert And then they find out that it does not resemble what they expected at all Additionally one of the first things that some people assume is that because it is an old book which comes from the desert it should talk about the desert Well the Quran does talk about the desert - some of its imagery describes the desert but it also talks about the sea - what its like to be in a storm on the sea Some years ago the story came to us in Toronto about a man who was in the merchant marine and made his living on the sea A Muslim gave him a translation of the Quran to read The merchant marine knew nothing about the history of Islam but was interested in reading the Quran When he finished reading it he brought it back to the Muslim and asked This Muhammed was he a sailor He was impressed at how accurately the Quran describes a storm on a sea When he was told No as a matter of fact Muhammed lived in the desert that was enough for him He embraced Islam on the spot He was so impressed with the Qurans description because he had been in a storm on the sea
