I am not tired

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Mansoor: You must read ayat more carefully and not just in context II

Plato!!

I am lucky that I have power of Quran. The translations and excerpts you referred are also right and they show that Quran is extremely rich when it comes to understanding the terminologies and disclosure of secrets ages over ages. Arabic is so rich that each word has multiple meanings behind them. The word authority is translated from the Word "Sultan" in the referred verse regarding the penetration to sky by Jinn and Human. Sultan has several meanings and one is "power" also. I have no objection in the translation you are referring. I am considering the Translation by "Mufti Taqi Osmani" which is the most latest one. All authentic translations available are equally fit in context and are of highest caliber if someone is ready to take guidance.

You said why infidels were allowed or given knowledge to cross the sky...Well good question. I think once you feel you have crossed highest limits of science and technology and still you are unable to identify your Lord, then your whole education, whole intellects and whole life is a waste...Thats for sure..

For me Quran is a guiding light...the richness of text of this sacred, holy, divine revelation is applicable for ages over ages... Muslims all over the world are so proud that they can defend their faith in the best possible way because a true, undisputed, unchallengable revelation is available to them..Not like Bible which has the key source missing!!!
