Hollywood star Will Smith has described the Quran as “crystal clear,” saying the Muslim holy book is difficult to misunderstand.

“I loved the simplicity; the Quran is so clear; it is crystal clear. It is hard to walk away with misunderstanding,” Smith said, adding that he read the Quran last Ramadan.

The spirit of it was so beautiful and clear.”

Smith, who said he has read the holy books of the two other Abrahamic faiths, Judaism and Christianity, added that he was surprised at how interconnected the three holy scriptures – the Quran, Torah and Bible – were.

“I was surprised how it is like one story, from the Torah through the Bible and into the Quran. I never totally understood Abraham as the father and then the split with Isaac and Ishmail and it was beautiful to get the completion of that comprehension.”

The movie star, who is on a visit to Saudi Arabia, also expressed his “love” for the Middle Eastern country and its culture during a podcast with MBC.

“I think I was a Genie in a past life. I am so at home; I love it here,” Smith, who played the role of Genie in the Aladdin live action movie, said jokingly.
