“The Miracle of Islam is different. If you put the Qur’an in front of you for hundreds of years and watch it, it will do nothing. […] The true miracle is the ability of this Qur’an to go inside this mind of the human being and bring the miracle of that human being. The true miracle in Islam is you and me, if we want it to be!”– Dr. Walid Fitaihi.
