>Dude, you need more than a dictionary. Like I said before, translating with a dictionary will not give you the knowledge and meaning, only the translation not the interpretation. The Qur'an has small words with deep meaning. That deep meaning is not derived from the dictionary. The Arabic prose and rhythms and rhymes are perfect. The idioms cannot be explained by the dictionary.

I will leave this little gem to the readers to judge you and your poor muslim education

>Have you been reading my comments?

What comments? that you are no more than another victim of Arabian imerialism or that you are no more than a demagogue?

>peace

There will be no peace until islam is a relic of the past
