You said

Aamir Ali the Koran is straightforward in attacking and accusing so-called unbelievers of all sorts of transgressions. But will you please clear the confusion in my mind about this Surah that I have set out numbered 1 to 17 above.

If you cannot understand 1 you cannot understand the remaining...

you quoted

1. Warning unbelievers is useless since Allah Himself has misguided them! (6,7)

Please visit http://www.central-mosque.com/quran/english_quraan_mufti_taqi.pdf for proper translation..

I want to give you an example for similar quotes..which non beleivers say that they are misguided by Allah so they donot deserve any punishment...

Suppose you are CEO of a company and found that two of your employees are involved in stealing money and other smaller crimes...you start observing them and hold your action against them..after few days you realize that Mr.A is doing crimes frequently and Mr.B is not a serious criminal..You simply send a general warning to all staff that if someone found in any misconduct will be taken to task..

After this notice you observe again that the crime pattern is similar...you call Mr. B and warn him that you have found evidence against him but giving one more chance to come back to right path...(Guided)

But you let Mr. A continue his work and didnt warn him and pretend that you dont know about his acts (Misguided)...Mr. A was overlooked so that more evidence is gathered and strong case is made against him so that he cannot deny and can be charged and punished heavily.,..

When Allah say that nobody can guide someone to whom Allah misquided means that due to his regular pattern of sins Allah wants to drag him to hell gradually..because more crimes he commits means more punishment...

Unfortunately due to extracting only some verses without reference to context..create confusions in ones mind..this way of analyzing facts is invalid in all cases..whether Qura

The ONLY English Translation by a Contemporary Muslim Scholar

2. The Cow

With the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the Very-Merciful.

[2:1]Alif.Lam. Mim .

[2:2]This Book has no doubt in it - a guidance for the God-fearing,

[2:3]who believe in the Unseen, and are steadfast in Salah (prayer), and spend out of what We have provided them;

[2:4]and who believe in what has been revealed to you and what has been revealed before you; and they have faith in the Hereafter.

[2:5]It is these who are guided by their Lord; and it is just these who are successful.

[2:6]Surely for those who have disbelieved, it is all the same whether you warn them or you warn them not: they do not believe.

[2:7]Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing; and on their eyes there is a covering, and for them awaits a mighty punishment.

[2:8]And among men there are some who say, .We believe in Allah and in the Last Day., yet they are not believers.

[2:9]They try to deceive Allah and those who believe, while they are not deceiving anyone except themselves, although they are unaware of it.

[2:10]In their hearts there is a malady, so Allah has made them grow in their malady; and for them there is a grievous punishment, because they have been lying.

[2:11]When it is said to them, .Do not spread disorder on the earth., they say, .We are but reformers..

[2:12]Beware, it is, in fact, they who spread disorder, but they do not appreciate.

[2:13]And when it is said to them, .Believe as people have believed,. they say, .Shall we believe as the fools have believed?. Beware, it is, in fact, they who are the fools, but they do not know.

[2:14]When they meet those who believe, they say, .We have entered Faith;. but when they are alone with their satans, they say, .Indeed, we are withwe were only mocking you;

[2:15] It is Allah who mocks at them, and lets them go on wandering blindly in their rebellion.

[2:16]These are the people who have bought error at the price of guidance; so their trade has brought no gain, nor have they reached the right Path.

[2:17]Their situation is like that of a man who kindles a fire, and when it illuminates everything around him, Allah takes away their lights and leaves them in layers of darkness, so that they see nothing.

[2:18]Deaf, dumb and blind, they shall not return.

[2:19] Or (it is) like a rainstorm from the sky, bringing darkness, thunder and lightning; they thrust their fingers in their ears against the thunderclaps for fear of death, ___and Allah encompasses the disbelievers__

[2:20]and lightning (all but) snatches away their eyesight; every time a flash gives them light, they walk by it; and when darkness falls upon them, theystand still. And if Allah willed, He would certainly take away their hearing and their eyes: surely Allah is powerful to do anything.

[2:21]O people, worship your Lord who created you and those before you, so that you may become God-fearing.

[2:22]He is the One who made the earth a bed for you, and the sky a roof, and sent down water from the sky, then brought forth with it fruits, as a provision for you. So, do not set up parallels to Allah when you know.

[2:23] If you are in doubt about what We have revealed to Our servant, then bring a Surah similar to this, and do call your supporters other than Allah, if you are true.

[2:24]But if you do not It has been prepared for disbelievers.– and you will never be able to – then guard yourselves against the Fire, the fuel of which will be men and stones. [2:25] And give good news to those who believe and do righteous deeds that for them there are gardens beneath which rivers flow. Every time they are given a fruit from there to eat, they will say, .This is what we have been given before.; and they will be given (fruits) resembling one another. And for them there shall be wives purified; and there they will live forever.

[2:26] Indeed, Allah does not feel shy in citing any parable, be it that of a gnat or of something above it (in meanness). Now, as for those who believe,they know it is the truth from their Lord; while those who disbelieve say, .What could Allah have meant by this parable?. Bythis He lets many go astray, and by this He makes many find guidance. But He does not let anyone go astray thereby except those who are sinful

[2:27]disorder on the earth - it is these who are the losers.those who break the Covenant of Allah after it has been made binding, and cut off the relations Allah has commanded to be joined, and spread

[2:28] .How is it that you deny Allah, while you were lifeless and He gave you life; then He will make you die, and then He will make you live again, and then to Him you will be returned? [2:29] It is He who created for you all that the earth contains; then He turned to the heavens and made them seven skies— and He is the knower of all things.


I am sure that the correct version I have provided can be verified from the link provided and will not be eliminated from my post..You can simply realize how can a simple sentence can change its meaning when it is not quoted with its complete matter..

Best of Luck Plato
