in response to reader comment: Quranic ayah or non-quranic

Submitted by Haji Jahangir Alam (India), Apr 20, 2013 at 07:18

Dear sir.ALTAF

You are wondering about quranic ayah or non qurani ayah.

To your kind information all the quranic ayah are right .But they are all wrongly exlpained By our learned clergy mens, due to lack of knowledge.Koran is for the whole world and not for the Muslim only.A small example is giving you regarding the ayat of 2/233 which you have quoted in your letter.If you go deeply in this ayat you will find a great mistake in explaining the so called ayay.You know that "NISA" and "zoja" have got different meaning.the word NISA mean women(wife,daughter,mother,sister) and the word "ZOJA" mean only wife.So if you read the ayat as NISA then it means the ladies of your family should be taken protection as like as a farmer who looks his farms and not to use them as it is mention in translation made by so called ulemas.Beside this there are many ayat which have different meanings that we have to find out.

Sura Anfal 8 Aiyat 1, 41

They ask you concerning things taken as spoils of war, say-such spoils are at the disposal of God and

the apostles; so fear God and keep straight the relation between yourselves, obey God and his apostles, if you do believe.

And know that out of all the booty that you may acquire in war a fifth share is assigned to God and to the apostles and to near relatives, orphan, the needy, and the wayfarer. If you do believe in God and in the revelation we sent down to our servants on the day of testing, the day of the meeting, of the two forces for God hath power over all things.

In this Aiyat the meaning of 'booty' is the wealth acquired by man through sinful acts and when such type of man promises not to do any sinful act again, then his acquired illegal property is given to God and to the apostles so that such property may be used in honest and proper deeds, because to waste this property will be an ethical act. Looting is always considered a sin in the society. Hence the meaning of booty in the aforesaid Aiyat is the illegally acquired properly before one acquires iman.

This is another example of qurans ayat

Sura Anfal 8 Aiyat 1, 41

They ask you concerning things taken as spoils of war, say-such spoils are at the disposal of God and

the apostles; so fear God and keep straight the relation between yourselves, obey God and his apostles, if you do believe.

And know that out of all the booty that you may acquire in war a fifth share is assigned to God and to the apostles and to near relatives, orphan, the needy, and the wayfarer. If you do believe in God and in the revelation we sent down to our servants on the day of testing, the day of the meeting, of the two forces for God hath power over all things.

In this Aiyat the meaning of 'booty' is the wealth acquired by man through sinful acts and when such type of man promises not to do any sinful act again, then his acquired illegal property is given to God and to the apostles so that such property may be used in honest and proper deeds, because to waste this property will be an ethical act.
