If anybody on the face of earth was to claim the Quraan is anything other than the truth, I'll stand firm and tell 'em they better look deep into this glorious book first. I understand that people who never learned Arabic can never see in the Quraan what Arabic speaking people can, it's very simple, trying to translate a poem from Italian to Indian will be quite torturous to the main meaning of such poem, and by the same token, translating words that were edited by the creator and were put in an Arabic text that even those who read, spoke and written Arabic from their early childhood can't come up with anything like it, translating it to any human language known to man will never translate the majority of it's DOUBLE ANTANDRE at a minor level of integrity and truthfulness.

People who read the Quraan several times a year will tell you that they all experienced one thing in common, and that is the fact that one verse meant something at one time, then it meant something completely different the other time. There are many translations of this book on the market these days, and many scholars will testify that none of those translations can reach a high grade of accuracy at all.

Now, take this Shoebat's stories with all the above into consideration, if this man really was taught Islamic conduct and Arabic from his childhood and now when he's, I imagine, in his late forties, telling his stories like someone who never knew the secrets and miracles of the glorious Quraan, he's also talking like someone who grew up in a culture too stray to be considered Palestinian, bearing in mind that I grew up in the exact same culture this guy claims he was brought up in, I come up with one conclusion : he's a total liar, or someone gave him a large amount of money to say what he's saying, enough money to blind his heart.

I can only pray for his soul, if he was one a Muslim that Allah's mercy may come to him before dying in his self made darkness. Allah says in his glorious Quraan what translate in English to this: You never give the devine light to who ever you want, Allah give it to who ever He chooses.
