Dr Pipes

It is not only Allahu Akbar that is incorrectly translated but also صلى الله عليه وسلم (acronym صلعم) or Sala Allahu "Alyhi wa Salam which is translated as: Peace Be Upon Him (the infamous PBUH) when the literal meaning is: "Allah prays upon him" But again Allah praying to a mere human being must a disaster

What is most alarming is that these words and sentences that have clear in Arabic eg: Jihad become sanitized with blatant lies

For the readers: Never trust Arabic to English translations of any Islamic book
