Sherali used the word helper. Yusufali used the word patron. As for Khan, he simply used the word wali. And whoever among you takes them as friends, so surely he is of them. Surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. Notice how the same scholar above translated the same word as mentioned in this verse three times.
Notice he added the words and protectors. That is why they tried to use other words as written above. In the first 13 years that he lived after he emigrated from Mecca to Medina, was he fighting Indians? Or the Americans? Or perhaps the Australians? The answer is very simple.
None of the above. He invaded their lands, killed their men, and raped their females. May Allah engage in war with them. Now you can have an idea of how Muslim scholars treated the Jews and Christians.

Was it love or was it hate? You cannot take me as friend if you have one desire and one desire only, which is to kill me. Muslims countries teach evolution in their biology classes, and sadly the teachers who teach this subject do not have enough knowledge to speak against or to defend creation. That is why I wish some Christian scientists could teach Christian creation science in the Muslim world for this could be a great tool to defend the lies of evolution and also the truth of the Bible.
Can you translate word for word of the Quran, not adding or removing anything? I have seen translations and none are the same. Something is added or removed or switched around in everyone of them. Do you have a copy of it? It is available on line at my website. And they are not commanded except to serve one god. There is no god except him.
Praise to him above what they partner. I am not sure if he was saved at the time or not. I did not give any warning to less discerning believers, young Christians, or perhaps lost people who were present, or to those present who believe they are saved but are actually lost! Is it irresponsible of me to encourage a mixed maturity group to buy a Quran and study it and compare the Bible? Here I should point out that I did not teach them to study any Quran, but very specifically your translation of the Quran, and that for many good reasons, not the least of these are your bold print comments and references to the Bible inserted between the text of the Quran itself.
As I mentioned earlier, we showed the 3 minute commercial in class explaining why this Quran is the best choice for us to study. How would you answer that? Is that still true? It is like studying and learning about a disease — we are not learning about a disease to become sick but to learn how to cure it.
All of the DVDs reveal what Islam does to a country. Yet they are alive with their lord, receiving their provision. I was just wondering if there anything you had about this or could comment on this issue.? Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. Allah will pardon you for this.
And Allah is forgiving, forbearing. You said once that Allah meant satan. Please help me find in the hadith about adult breast feeding. Please correct me if I am misunderstanding this. The Bible speaks of three deaths: spiritual death which leads to physical death which concludes with eternal death. In Christianity, we know that Christ died for the sins of the world, for Christ was the final jihad killing in the Bible.
From the day Christ died until He comes back, God no longer requires the physical death of sinners as it used to be in the Old Testament, for Christ died as a substitute. That is the summary of sin and death in Christianity. Muslims are commanded by Allah Satan and Mohammed to kill infidels — any one and everyone who does not accept Islam, which is stated throughout the Medine verses, as you already know.
These are the final words of Allah which Allah and Mohammed used to abrogate delete or cancel the early moderate, soft teachings of Mecca. Here are some examples of jihad killing, engaging in war, terror. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We engage in war with people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will engage in war with him forever in the Cause of Allah.
Killing him is a small matter to us. This sounds familiar that I may have read this from the Quran. Do you know? What would you like to know about the Ministry? I am reaching out to you for some help. He defended the gays, the transgender, and the Muslims. Christians are my brothers and sisters. I love Jesus.

Charlie 's review Sep 22, It's a great translation, with a lot of helpful information. I do not agree with the "19" idea that they put forth - that the Qur'an is mathematically coded which is an interesting theory in itself because they believe that two verses should be removed. Said verses are included in this translation, however, please do not fear this. If you are looking for a well-translated copy of the Qur'an, this is definitely it, if you can get past the 19 stuff.

There have been similar interpretations, but none have been incorporated into a translation. Debates over translations of the Koran - considered God's eternal words - revolve around religious tradition and Arabic grammar. Critics fault Bakhtiar on both scores. View all New York Times newsletters.
Quran: A Reformist Translation (Koran, Kuran in Modern English)
Bakhtiar expected opposition, not least because she is not an Islamic scholar. Men in the Muslim world, she said, will also oppose the idea of an American, especially a woman, reinterpreting the prevailing translation. Religious scholars outline several main threads in the translation of daraba. Conservative scholars suggest the verse has to be taken at face value, with important reservations.
They consider that the Koran holds that force is an acceptable last resort to preserve important institutions, including marriages and nations. Some scholars have accused some Muslims of trying to make the verse palatable to the West. The Bible, he noted, addresses stoning people to death. Sayyid Qutb, an Egyptian whose writings underpin the extremism of groups like Al Qaeda, published extensive commentaries about the Koran before he was hanged in Islamic tradition states that Muhammad never hit his 11 wives, and Qutb considered a man striking his wife as the last measure to save a marriage.
He cited the prophet's horror at the practice by quoting one of his sayings: "Do not beat your wife like you beat your camel, for you will be flogging her early in the day and taking her to bed at night. The verse , with its three-step program, is often called a reform over the violent practices of seventh-century Arabia, when the Koran was formulated.
The verse was not a license for battery, scholars say, with other interpretations defining the heaviest instrument a man might employ as a twig commonly used as a toothbrush. Sheik Ali Gomaa, the Islamic scholar who serves as Egypt's grand mufti, or senior Islamic cleric, said Koranic verses must be viewed through the prism of the era. The advice "is always broad in order to be relevant to different cultures and in different times," he said through a spokesman in an e-mail message.
A caller on a television program in Egypt recently asked the mufti if he should stop sleeping with his wife if she were causing discord, the spokesman said. The mufti replied that the measures in the verse were meant to bring harmony, not to exact revenge.
