  2. Ehsan Sehgal:

    The Quran is only such a holy book, which Muslims, whether man, woman, child or elder ones, recite every second and everywhere in this universe by heart, and verbally without reading all its verses. As a fact, Quran executes not only and mainly respect for the entire humanity, it also teaches love, equality, empathy, justice, honesty, harmony, tolerance, forgiveness, and peace. However, it also describes and allows the Tit for Tat, but it defines that forgiveness is a great attitude as well. If one feels a friendly feeling, whether Muslim or non-Muslim; it understands the Quran precisely and accurately; otherwise, the collapse of mutual respect becomes inevitable. Indeed, wrong conduct and interpretation penetrate one's thought, mindset, and character, not the essence of words and the meaning of the Quran in its right and correct context and concept.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    108 is a special sacred number in Eastern cultures and Hinduism, the most ancient religion in our world. To illustrate, Shivaganas are 108 in number, and therefore Shaiva's disciples use 108 Rudraksha beaded lace for their japa. They also recite supreme lord Shiva's 108 names daily during their morning Shivapuja. Likewise, in Gaudiya Vaishnavism, there are 108 gopis of Vrindavan. Srivaishnavism has 108 Divya Kshetras of Lord Vishnu, called as 108 Divya Desam. It's surely fascinating to know the religious significance and sacredness of 108.
