Reader comment on item: Why Shariah Must Be Opposed
in response to reader comment: One more victim of Arabian imperialism

Thank you pseudonymous Mr. Dhimmi No More for your message.

Your references are not correct. Your metaphors are against Islam and essentially misleading. It will be most appreciated if you kindly take care of your information sources.

Islam is a universal faith. As The Koran was revealed in Arabic, many less knowledgeable Arabs may think of their greater right / share in Islam. But it is obviously wrong. This has been explicitly clarified by the Prophet Muhammad in his last Hajj speech.

As far as the English rendering of The Koran is concerned please refer to the translation by M. Marmaduke Pickthall or if you prefer a non-Muslim translator then you may kindly quote from A. J. Arberry. 100% correct translation of The Koran is neither available, nor it is possible.

When any person, Muslim or non-Muslim, commenting in English should quote from The Koran with reference from the English translated versions giving the name of the translator.

I do not understand why most of the comments in this blog are impliedly sarcastic. It is better to comment, or even criticize, in a friendly way without causing any bitterness and expressing any hatred and hostility. May God help us all to become more cordial and friendly!
