New York - It is my strong belief that the Quran contains the best personal-development technology in existence. I came to Islam after having explored several other spiritual traditions and endless self-improvement courses and books. I can attest to the enormous power of the Quran’s unique teachings to transform our lives for the better. Growth and transformation, however, require strong focus, discipline and sustained effort. If we lack discipline and determination, we can begin by making a sincere intention to increase them and pray with earnestness for God’s help.
