YMMV / The Qur'an

  • Fair for Its Day: Most Double Standards, e.g about women and men, were rather progressive in their time.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Sparsely so, but where they exist, they hit the readers hard. The depiction of Qiyamah (The End of the World as We Know It) as well as Hell is enough to give you existential dread. Intentionally so.
  • Paranoia Fuel: It's stated that The End of the World as We Know It (and the Judgement Day that follows) will happen when you don't expect it (it can potentially happen the next Friday), for the knowledge of it is Allah's alone. On the plus side, this means that whenever the doomsday hype of the day (such as 2012) reach fever height, you can relax and take it easy. It wont happen in that date, right? Right?
  • Values Dissonance: Some people disagree with the values espoused in the Qur'an, especially regarding the role of women.
  • Values Resonance: Many ayat about how the universe was created and how it works have echoes in scientific theory, such as the universe being created by a form of decompression (similar to the Big Bang Theory) or all life on Earth coming from the water (a popular tenet of the Theory of Evolution).
