First Surah

Reader comment on item: Understanding the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict

Submitted by Muhammad Umair Cheema (Pakistan), Dec 19, 2004 at 05:50

Dear Karel!

I think you might be mistaken about the translation of first surah.There is not anything metioned like
Your Quote: Allah leads the muslim people in the way of justice, not the way of those with whom he's angry.

Its translation is

" (Oh God!) Show us the right path, the path on which you bestowed your blessings not of them whom you are angry and who are betrayed."

Right path which is mentioned is not the path of muslims nor the path of Jews.It is the path of a good and pious person.

Regards,
Umair
