Peace and blessing be on you all
The Quran can be understood in every language and all languages are God’s Languages. Why would Allah send His Words to earth only to be understood by people who understand the Arabic language? The Quran was sent to everyone. Having said that…I should explain that Arabic is a very deep rooted language and the correct words for translation must be selected for each word mentioned in Arabic within The Quran: So how lucky are we in this day and age that amazingly accurate translations have already been done of the Quran: For example we have The Sahih International, Pickthall, Yusuf Ali, etc., translations.
Are they really completely accurate?....I will have to wait and find out for myself. And so, right now, I find it more important to save time for myself and use those translations and the internet available at my fingertips to find out what The Quran is telling me about the World. The Quran is dripping with information, and a person does not need to study every dialect of Arabic and go back hundreds of years to know what the original meaning of a certain Arabic word is, because what you understand from it Today, is what it means Today. The Quran is alive. Lets read it and interpret it how we can.....It is not a story book, which starts from the 'beginning to the end' and that is really whats so amazing, the excitement of cross referencing! its gobsmacking, a puzzle which makes readers not want to stop! It is Book which probably has thousands and miilions of years between certain verses (events). I hope Allah guides us at each point. After all no one can know, for 100%, the real interpretation, except God,
"And no one knows its [true] interpretation except Allah" [Quran 3:7]
“And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?” [54:17] Yusuf Ali Translation
And so take this verse from the Quran and look closely at it. The word ‘indeed’ has been included. Is that not telling us something? Guys its telling us…INDEED (meaning FOR SURE, FOR REAL, BELIEVE IT) the Quran is easy to understand…
The Quran; having that it has been translated into every language in the world, there is not a chance in God’s universe that on the Day of Judgement when you stand in front of Him, that an individual can turn around and say “but I did not understand Arabic that’s why I could not really understand the Quran”. And that is proof enough to tell you that The Quran can be understood in every language, because on that very day God will not have left any excuse for man to use. God knows mankind better than mankind knows himself.
It does take a long time to learn a language. Some people can learn quickly whilst others will take years. I mean, here I am; born, raised and educated in the UK, yet I am quite weak in my knowledge of the proper English language, let alone to learn a new language from scratch. Nouns and pronouns?...what is all that, but I get by. Learning a language, for many, can take a long time. I do not have a great memory, I have to work, run my home, and the other 1000’s of things I need to do, and so learning a new language is extremely difficult for me. But to learn about life, read and gain knowledge; that can be done by anyone. Furthermore Allah never specifically tells us to learn a new language, neither does Allah tell us to learn Arabic so that you can understand the Quran, but what Allah does repeatedly tell us, is to read, think and look around oneself to find answers to life.
All this indicates that The Quran can be understood ‘properly’ in any language and therefore, I am using my time to read (in English), understand and write about what I find in this amazing book; The Quran. I want to analyse everything with a fresh approach, to find, what others, have or may have, missed. I do believe I have found things; The problem is…. I probably need your help to see what I may have over-looked or got completely wrong.And i have no doubt that I will receive a thousand and one critisms, but hey I am not perfect and neither are anyone of you. I hope my work gets you researching and thinking.....THATS ALL.
At the least, the articles can be a starting point.
You may even start believing what I write, but at the end….please remember….Get things checked out by proper open minded scholars. Not those imams who are stuck in one belief and the only answer they will give you is “this is a phenomena” or “this is a metaphor” - There are no mind games in the Quran, everything is not a 'metaphor' or a 'phenomena' (“And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand") and this Quran is not the work of The Devil: It is straight up, simple, and absolutely clear in each and every word it uses. The Devil is he who comes at you sideways. Allah's path is straight.
I find The Quran to be so profoundly fascinating. There is no book on earth more interesting than the Quran. I reckon the world of Islamic Scholars and people of the very highest knowledge have not yet understood or found the full potential of The Quran: Though they place The Quran to be the most highest, purest, and the most truthful miracle of the world…I think and believe the Quran is more than that and there is even more to it with thousands of unfound messages and information. For example…I found when sometimes reading the Quran, diagrams and flow-charts start forming in my mind. The diagrams and flow charts help me make sense of what I am reading.
One thing is important before you read any article….Do not twist what I am saying. Do not assume. Do not accuse me of trying to say something I have not said. For these reasons….I have not allowed anyone to leave comments.
Read the article, believe it, don’t believe it, throw it away, research it, find out more, broaden your thinking process… etc…The choice is yours. I am just sharing my research in the hope we 'people of all faiths' can come together and as a nation find out more about life, and my aim is to save lives by bringing more people to the truth: Islam. I truly believe the End Times are nearer than you think. Only if you knew.
“All thanks and praise is due to Allah.
We seek His help and forgiveness, and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil within ourselves and the consequences of our evil deeds.
Whoever Allah guides will never be led astray, and whoever Allah leads astray will never find guidance.
I bear witness there is no God but Allah, alone without any partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is His servant and His Messenger”
The prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was not educated, and yet not only was he given the Quran first but he completely understood it. You do not need education to understand the world. You need your 4 things: Your faculties, your soul, your heart and God, to understand it. It is only Allah who guides you. All you have to do is follow the simple instructions Allah has provided to you which are 'through' my articles and documents.
