This chapter begins by examining a sermon that was preached on the special occasion of the visit of President Sadat to Minya in December 1978. This was the chief executive's first visit to this provincial. It examines the integrity of the revealed word; the Qur'an as source; the Qur'an and the Bible; and displaying Qur'anic reasoning. Looking also at a preacher named Shaykh Umar, this chapter addresses very specifically the principles that must be followed in order to correctly interpret the Qur'an.
