Quran made me a Better Person,a Better Christian, a Better Clergywoman

That the Holy Qur’an was sent to benefit all mankind — not one particular religion or race — has been reaffirmed by an American priest who doesn’t mince words while admitting that reading the holy book has made her “a better person, a better Christian and a better clergywoman.It is the universal appeal of the Qur’an that brought the Rev. Jamie Hamilton close to Islam despite Western stereotyping of Islam and Muslims.

Hamilton, from the Religion Department at Phillips Exeter Academy, New Hampshire, is a scholar of comparative religion.During her recent visit to the Kingdom, she had discussions with several intellectuals including Prince Faisal bin Abdullah, minister of education. She told Arab News that the Holy Qur’an has a lot to offer people as it gives them structure, guidelines and purpose, “instead of just being focused on material things.”

Hamilton's retrospection of 9/11 vis-à-vis Islam changed her perception about Muslims. Advising people to read the Qur’an, she said: “So many people have their own baseless judgments about Qur’an and Islam … it absolutely surprises me how people make judgments on something they have not read.”   She added: “Once I realized that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was preaching to followers of all divine books, I realized that I too was part of his community.”

Hamilton, who is writing a book on Islam, explained: “As I started to study Islam, I could see that Christians and Muslims shared many ideas and approaches to our religions.”
The scholar, who quotes extensively from the Qur’an and Hadith, cherishes her insights about Islam. “The contemplation of the verses of the Qur’an has helped me deepen my faith.”

Perhaps our boys haven’t noticed but the world has changed.”
