  • Allah/God had decided to depute his Messenger to redeem the moral standard of human beings, which was composed of lakhs of social linguistic and ethnic groups.Countries were divided by Long range of Mountains and wide Seas. Could ONE MAN GUIDE THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF OUR EARTH ? The notion that Mohammed was the Messenger of God and his sent to guide the entire human beings ie all countries. One can believe Mohammed was sent to guide Arabs-but not the entire world.Such beliefs project God/ allah as simpleton. By dr.A.Anburaj - 6/1/2018 5:37:27 AM

  • The holy Quran was revealed only in Arabic language.

  • To Gulam Ghus Siddique.
    You showed the all grammatical need, other than it is hard to tell the intentions.
    Even keeping the word same meaning can be change, otherwise after 1400 year we will be still not discussing the word "Kafir"
    Words can be dragged into different meaning and applications.
    Whatever you tell but Quran is still producing it fruits in violent manner and endangering humans from it freedom of expression to freedom of worship, I am not intrested in repeated quotes and lines from Quran, lot had been said, it looks like hypocracy or blunt lie on face of non followers of Quran.

  • Ayina sb,

    The case is not similar to matter of the Quran. The Quran is still safe and true.

    But Why Hazrat Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) burnt the copies of the Quran that had dialects other than the Quraishi dialect? The answer is as follows;

    The holy Quran was revealed only in Arabic language. The Quran has only one original Arabic copy. Unlike today, the Arabic language had 7 dialects 1400 years ago.  There exists today one original copy of the Quran in Saudi Arabia today.  A copy of this original copy also exists in Turkey today as well.

    The Quran was revealed in Arabic, and in the Quraishi dialect.  The Quraishi dialect is the most proper Arabic dialect that properly uses the Arabic words without altering their sound.

    The Quraishi dialect was the most popular dialect in the Middle East at that time, and is today the dialect used among Arabs who speak Proper Arabic.  The dialect that books teach at schools is also a Quraishi dialect today.

    Back in the Middle East 1400 years ago, the Quraishi dialect was not the only one used among Arabs.  There existed 6 other dialects along with it, but as I said, it was the most popular.

    It is very important in the Islamic faith that when we recite the holy Quran, we recite it in the Quraishi dialect or what we call today in the proper Arabic.  We can't pronounce for instance "th" as "sa" or "za".  We can't pronounce "la" as "laman".  We can't pronounce "ja" and "ga", etc...

    There are no variances or missing parts in the holy Quran.  These are all false and baseless assumptions by some anti-Islamic elements.  The Arabic dialects had problems with each others, and that's why standardizing the holy Quran with its original Quraishi dialect was essential to keeping it as a perfect Holy Book:  For instance, take the letter "j".  Did you know that some Arabs don't pronounce the "j"?  They always pronounce it as "g" or "ga".

    Take "the" as another example.  Some Arabs also don't pronounce "the".  They pronounce it as "za".

    Another example, and this is an important one in my opinion, is that some Arabs used to have a dialect which originated from Yemen, where they would add "an" at the end of a noun. Take for instance the popular word of today "Taliban", as in the Taliban in Afghanistan.  "Taliban" is the same as the Arabic word "Talib" which means "Student".

    The Afghans today use the old Arabic dialect from Yemen which dates even older than 1400 years ago when the holy Quran was revealed.  Back then in Yemen, as I said, they used to add the word "an" for nouns.  So if they for instance wanted to refer to a stone "sakhr (in Arabic)", then they would refer to it as "sakhran", even though it would be written in Arabic as "sakhr".

    In Islam, properly reciting the Words of Allah Almighty is the way it must be practiced.  Otherwise, it would be considered a sin and disrespect toward Allah Almighty and the individual would be disobeying Allah Almighty and would gain bad deeds that will count against him in the Day of Judgment if he did it intentionally.

    Important here is not there alteration of thought and fabrication, but people had accepted as truth, 
    This is similar case Where Muslims believes that  Quran is true even though it is well known fact that Uthman buried all original copies and created this one which you Muslims are never miss chance to tell that not a single word has been change.
    The case is sura Tuba is even exclusive(( which has given exclusive right to kill all non-Muslim), a sudden old man appear from some where to confirm that yes this ayat was there.
    I think Muslims are reaping for their own karma((( Sanchit Karma )))which they have committed by hiding the truth of compilation and burning of your Ture holy copies and replacing with political one.

  • It should be known that in the thought of Shah Waliullah, alterations and fabrications have been made in three ways; 1) the fake books have been referred to him, 2) fabrications in his famous books and 3) self-made interpretations in his thought.
    The grandson of Shah Rafiuddin and a publisher of Shah Waliullah’s books have mentioned two fake books referred to Shah Wali. These two books are Tuhfatul Muwahhedin and Al-Balagh al-mubin (Anfas al-Arifin, Matbua Ahmadi, Delhi)  By Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi غلام غوث الصديقي - 5/2/2018 4:19:43 AM

  • I agree with Arshad sahib. Supremacism and exclusivism have no place in modern Islam. Equal respect for all belief systems should be the sine qua non of contemporary ethos. By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 5/1/2018 1:11:04 PM

  • Your article provides a contextualised understanding of how Islam and it’s varied interpretations need to be reflected upon. What we require is an acceptance of
    pluralist ideas that create synergy for all religions to coexist.
