Abdelrahman, why is it that the Quran can not be translated, yet Arabic poetry, text books, news papers and the hadith collections can be?

Why is it that the 18 translations displayed by Islamic Awakening use different word selections but have common meanings?

Why is it that Sahih Bukhari and the Quran form a congruent pattern of conduct and doctrine? Explain the congruent pattern of doctrine driven violence formed by the Quran, hadith, tafsir & Shari'ah. Have you read Reliance of the Traveler O9.8? Why does it specify 9:29 as its foundation?

Why did the Prophet issue the proscription on killing children in Sahih Muslim 19.4274? How does that proscription relate to 33:26, Sahih Muslim 19.4321 and Reliance O9.13 which states that captive women & children are enslaved ?
