Moslems believe that there is only one Koran. Koran was written in Arabic but it has translated in many languages, incl. English. You can pick up any Koran available. In my country, Bible, Tripitaka, Wedha..all holy books have been translated in our language. And that doesn't mean those are 'wrong' (I think).

I'm an engineer, and not too interest to study a philosophy or even a religion (incl. Koran sometimes :( ). We are discussing whether Koran 'instructed' to kill non-moslem or not aren't we? I may not good on a civilisation history, but I really think that kill innocent people is wrong and NOT instructed at all religions (at least that what I heard).

Koran was written in 'story-tell' style. It will be dangerous for someone who just takes one sentence and not the whole story. Since that person doesn't understand the story before than sentence, and even worse: consequences and what next on the same story.

I read in one blog that actually (I think) belong to someone who try to 'agitate' moslem who read it. He said that we have to show who we are, not to be humble, fighting etc.etc. But you know what? In actual story, just after those sentences, Mohammad said, the peace way is much better, whatsoever. So like I said. Surely, the same idea is used for having wife more than one etc.

That's what I believe is causing the bad thing around the world. People that actually don't know much, but act as they know everything. May be I do sometimes :-))

peace
