Q&A Session #13 with Famous Turkish Singer Mustafa Ceceli & Ahmed Hulusi Love
Decoding The Quran
Why Decode the Quran from a Sufi Perspective?
The Quran addresses the intellect. In the most basic terms it underpins two truths.
1. There is no 'god out there' administrating existence from afar. There is only the One denoted by the name 'Allah.' It is this existence, which comprises man's essential reality, whose knowledge man should strive to acquire.
2. Man - in terms of the Names and qualities of Allah comprising his essence - is immortal. Therefore, he should align his life in accordance with this inherent endless potential within.
As with B'ismillah-arRahman-arRahim, the letter 'B' in the Quran alludes to these essential truths. In fact, the reality symbolized by the letter 'B' has been the underlying essential groundwork for all schools of Sufism, throughout all ages. If, on the contrary, this truth is not grasped, the Quran will inevitably be misconceived as a book referencing a god in the heavens. Whereas, Allah is the limitless eternal Oneness, invalidating all concepts of an 'other' in terms of space and dimension!
In Decoding the Quran the reader is given the opportunity to read through the lens of this reality.

Verses from the Quran, For Inquisitive and Free Minds...
86. “No calamity befalls you on earth (on your physical body and outer world) or among yourselves (your inner world) that has not already been recorded in a book (formed in the dimension of knowledge) before We bring it into being! Indeed for Allah, this is easy. We inform you of this in order that you don’t despair over your losses or exult (in pride) over what We have given you, for Allah does not like the boastful and the arrogant!” (Quran 57:22-23)
87. “...Perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah knows, while you know not.” (Quran 2:216)
88. “Whatever good comes to you it is from Allah, but whatever evil comes to you it is from your self (from complying with your conditioned beliefs including your alleged ‘moral codes’)...” (Quran 4:79)
Editorial Reviews for Books
Decoding The Quran - Turkish journalist offers a more universalist interpretation of Islam that could help bridge cultures among students of spirituality. In Decoding the Quran, Turkish journalist Ahmed Hulusi offers a "new construal" of the Muslim sacred text "in the light of the realities of today, the modern age." His willingness to share (without personal profit) the fruits of his religious erudition demonstrates both a bold will and a generous heart. To appreciate Decoding the Quran fully, one must peel back the layers... - Foreword Reviews
Prologue to Decoding The Quran - A short introduction to the author's interpretation of the Muslim holy book, the Quran. The author has written a number of other books on "decoding" the Quran's meaning. Here he presents a brief overview of his theory, centered on his understanding of the meaning of the letter "B" as used in the Quran's text... After several introductory essays, he includes a list of all the Quranic names for God, with explanations of the meanings of each, and a selection of verses from the Quran... An intriguing overview of a unique approach to reading the Quran. - Kirkus Reviews
The Essence of Man - A mystical interpretation of the Quran and the nature of Islam. His interpretation appears to be that God, as explained in the Quran, is less a deity than a concept that humans can incorporate, and those who treat God as a separate being are missing the point of the religion... The details of this interpretation are explained in part through metaphor, as when the author contrasts the open-platform aspect of the Linux operating system to the closed nature of Windows; in part through advances in neuroscience and other forms of research... - Kirkus Reviews
The Observing One - Throughout the book, Hulusi is relentlessly unforgiving of small-mindedness. He challenges the reader to confront the reality that "You live and dwell within your imagination and your imagination alone!"- Foreword Reviews
Muhammad's Allah - "Hulusi explicates one of the most difficult concepts in mystical Islam--the notion that "Allah," commonly misunderstood in the West and even in parts of the Muslim world... Readers interested in learning about the Sufi spiritual philosophy hinted at in Rumi's poetry might profit from this deeply considered study." - Kirkus Reviews
A New Understanding
What is Islam? It's certainly not a social or political regime. So what exactly is it?
Islam has been revealed to us for a purpose: for man to identify himself according to the mechanics of existence and the universe, and for man to unveil the prime attributes from his true essence.
The holographic reality states that all that is present throughout the Universe also exists within the human mind. Islam provides the realization that the path for man to reach his creator is through his own mind... Islam provides you with the system and mechanics to reach your creator, to unleash the true potential within.
Islam was revealed to you, FOR you.
The Great Misconception
Existing translations of the Quran do not reflect its true essence nor its core thought process! Such translations base their premise on the fundamentals of a God beyond, and depict the Purveyor of the word of Allah as a 'messenger' mandated to spread God's message to humanity.
Oneness means there is only Allah and nothing else. It does NOT mean that Allah is the only God. To separate Allah from the cosmos, people and other beings is defined in the Quran as Polytheism.
The Quran emphasizes that all that is perceived and all that is beyond perception exists within the names of Allah. The Quran demonstrates time and time again that we cannot attain all that is referred to by the names of Allah by praying towards the skies. We must turn within, to our depth, our essence!
