I told you before that the Shiite follow the Quran, it is the same Quran we have, but their rituals changed, they inserted false practice and false historical accounts, they say about Ali and his Son's (The grandchildren of Muhammad) that should not be said, they give them high status more than Muhammad,

They created, invented, contrived, stories that are not true about Muhammad, his wife and his friends

They curse his wife who God blessed her in the Quran, they curse his friends whom God promised paradise

It is true they follow the Quran and they asy Muhammad is a prophet of God, but they say Gabriel mistakened him for Ali, and gave Muhammad the prophethood instead of Ali (They are infidels), they know that Muhammad name is mentioned in the Quran but still wants to deny him prophethood for Ali, It is like the Israelite stories and Biblical falacies about other events and prophets. all FALSE

The shiite Sect was introduced after the murder of Ali (The cousin of the Prophet), (i.e. nearly 30 years after the death of Muhammad) there was dispute among the Muslims on how to revenge, one group (Later The Sunni's) wanted things to calm down and make no division between Muslims, the other group (Later Shiite) wanted to kill the killers of Ali and make war. so was the split

This is what I take on Shiite, they deviated from the right path as the Jews and Christians did before them and have rituals Muhammad did not ordered us to do.

We cannot change the Arabic text of the Quran, simply because they are the words of God, but we can explain the meaning of what came forth.

There are large, huge volumes of Famous Muslim scholars who made proper interpretation of the Quran such as Ibn Katheer, Al-Qurtubi, Al-Jalalein, Al-tabari and many many others and they all almost tally with each other in their interpretations with small variants

Their are proper translations to English and over 100 languages. I mentioned before some, the best as I see today is M. Khan translation. They are all good and give proper translation to the words of God and their proper meaning.

It is not difficult to follow the translation and make comparison yourself and see if there is a big difference or not, I see no big difference.

The Quran is one in arabic, whether in China, India, Russia, europe, USA, Latin America, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australia, It is one book exact book, no variations in Arabic. unlike the Bible, it comes in different sizes, different chapters, diffirent volume, different words inside them, there is huge difference
