Dear Dear Mansoor,

You chose to pick up transalations :

Zul-Qarnain and the Setting Sun in Sura 18:83-86

"They will ask thee of Dhu'l-Qarneyn [Zul-Qarnain]. Say: I shall recite unto you a remembrance of him. Lo! We made him strong in the land and gave him unto every thing a road. And he followed a road Till, when he reached the setting-place of the sun, he found it setting in a muddy spring, and found a people thereabout. We said: O Dhu'l-Qarneyn! Either punish or show them kindness." Sura 18:83-86 (Pickthall's translation)

when i wrote that the sun sets in muddy waters, you said muddy spring.. Does spring consists of water or wine?? SORRY MY BAD!!! WE AGREE THAT THE QURAN STATES THAT THE SUN SETS IN MUDDY SPRING!!!! LOL, I HAVE MUDDY SPRING BEHIND MY HOUSE I HOPE IT DOESN'T SET THERE!!!!!

[36:36] Pure (from every fault) is the One who has created all the pairs of whatever the earth grows and of the humans themselves and of that which they do not know. [36:37] And a sign for them is the night. We strip (the cover of) the day from it, and they are suddenly in darkness. [36:38] 1)And the sun is quickly proceeding towards its destination. That is the designing of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing. [36:39] And for the moon We have appointed measured phases, until it turned (pale, curved and fine) like an old branch of date palm. [36:40] 2) Neither it is for the sun to overtake the moon, nor can the night outpace the day. Each one is floating in an orbit.

Notice the bold lines 1)? now tell me which destination is the sun proceeding too? Mecca? I thought you said that the sun is stationary and the earth revolves around the sun?? so its ideally earth which should proceed to its destination right? 2) Now how can the sun overtake the moon? are they running a race? and what is this line about night out pacing the day? Havent your madrassa geography teacher taught you that in winter night out paces the day i.e nights are longer than days and in summer the day outpaces the night i.e days are longer? There are some parts of the world where the nights last for days my dear friend, even 3rd grade students in India know that but since the quran was a product of people who had hardly ventured out of the desert , i cannot expect them to know that!

Also in whose orbit is the sun floating!!?

The bugs aren't there in my mind mansoor but they have certainly chewed off your sense of logic, thats why you believe in Mumbo Jumbo.

Any ways you still haven't replied on the glorius quran declaring the Uncleaniliness of women and the Haraamiyat of Dogs, since you have chosen Pickthall as an authentic transalation, i think i should use that for reference in future.. But even that is a problem with you, when Plato Dhimmi, Luigi, choose pickthalls transalatios , you say that he is wrong!!! any one of us This is the error which muslims fail to adress, Yusuf Ali or Pickthall or your local Mullah, who has the right of interpreting the quran? you yourself interpret the quran in ways to justify your foolish logic , so in a way you are also party to the so called blasphemy!!! see how you chose not to explain stars bieng missiles to shoot evil jinns? you know thats a fairy tale don't you?

Thats why my friend.. i always tell you , be a muslim but dont be a slave of the book. dont parrot the line which you say QURAN IS THE MOST COMPLETe AND AUTHENTIC GUIDE .. Sane people can punch holes in it very easily.. so why believe in a book which has so many transalators but tend to Disgree on everything? Where is the authentic quran ? if you find it let me know, i think it is lost in transalation!!

Please do some research yourself and clear out the bugs in your book itself..

Regards,

Proud Indian

PS : LOL, EVEN AFGHANISTAN IS THREATENING HOT PURSUIT INTO PAKISTAN... YOU GUYS REALLLY KNOW HOW TO RUB PEOPLE THE WRONG WAY! BY THE LOOKS OF IT EVEN THEY WILL BEAT THE HELL OUT OF YOU
