The Qur'an is a unique book, full of inspiration, wisdom, Guidance, and answers to practical questions.
A person should not be called by a name or a title which may cause him/her humiliation. e.g. calling somebody a sinner or a hypocrite, or calling someone a lame or blind, or one-eyed, or giving him a nickname containing a reference to some defect or flaw in him/her, or in his/her parents, or in his/her family, or giving such a nickname to a person, or a family, or a community, or a group, which may bring disapproval or disgrace on it. Only those nicknames have been made an exception from this Command, which though apparently offensive, are not intended to disapprove of the persons concerned, but they instead serve as a mark of recognition for them. If there are several men of the same name and a particular man among them may be recognized only by a particular title or nickname of his, the title or nickname can be used, even though the title by itself may be offensive. For instance, if there are several men called Abdullah, and one of them is blind, he may be called Abdullah the blind, only for recognition purposes. Those titles also are not a part of this Command, which though apparently offensive, are in fact, given out of love and the people who are called by those titles themselves approve of them, like Abu Hurairah (father of the kitten).

There are many classes throughout Americas masajid, and across the internet, to teach how to read the Quran in Arabic with Tajweed (correct pronunciation). Although there are many blessings to be gained by reading Allah’s wisdom and guidance in Arabic, by not understanding it, Americans are missing out on how to utilize Allah’s wisdom and guidance in their everyday lives. The guidance and wisdom in the Qur'an is so vital that no segment of the world can be successful without it.
Allah has told us that it is not His purpose that all human beings should be forced to accept His Guidance. Had it been so, Allah would have created them in such a way that they would have been righteous by birth, like the angels. Then there would have been no need for His sending Prophets and Books for the gradual establishment of the Way of Allah. Allah does not desire this.
On the contrary, Allah intends that the Truth should be presented to the people in a rational way. So, that those, who are convinced of it, may adopt it without any coercion, and then mold their characters in accordance with it. In this way, they would attract the best among the people towards it, until they succeed in establishing the Straight Way.
It is a law of nature that, when a man is not prepared to rise above prejudice, in his quest for the Truth, his heart closes to every truth, which is opposed to his desires. We can describe this condition by saying, that the heart of that person has become sealed, and Allah describes it by saying, that He has sealed the heart of the person.
The guidance and wisdom in the Qur'an is so vital that no segment of the world can be truly successful without it. Allah has described the Qur'an in these words: “ ...this book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of clear teachings which show the right way and are a scale of Truth and falsehood.”
Allah is the Creator of man, therefore, it stands to reason that it is Allah’s responsibility to provide the right guidance to His creation, and show it the way to fulfill the objective of its creation. Allah's Guidance is not only Man's greatest need, for success, but it is required by Allah’s mercifulness. Who else would provide guidance to the creation if not the Creator? And if the Creator does not provide the right guidance, who else could?
