Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think
in response to reader comment: For Sohail: The Qur'an is a "text with no context"

Answer to your 1st claim which says 'but if we are to read it as maaliki we are editing the word of your Allah!!) or is it Maliki or the king' ...

Please be aware Mr. dhimmi no more, that every verse/chapter of the glorious Qur'an has been repeated to Prophet Muh'd in many different Arabic dialects. Therefore if you see Maaliki or Maliki, they both describe the God Almighty & mind you Suratul Fatiha was among the chapters revealed twice in the Qur'an ( ie. it is both Makkiyya as well as Madaniyya). Even as I am writing to you one can understand which English am I communicating with (ie whether British or American)

: Ababeel, sijiil, kalala.

This claim also comes as a result of lack of justice or ignorance to the adoptations of words from one language to another, which could be found in every language. And by the way, Ababeel & sijiil are pure Arabic words, look into Tafseer; Fathul Qadir, by Shawkaniy.

"Ina hadhan la sahiran." this statement is not Qur'anic, please consult your sources again & correct your grammer b/4 touching the Qur'an.

On Naskh wa mansukh Allah says 'whanever a verse We abrogate...We bring a better/similar one instead...Q2:106.

No society has ever taken the most beautiful & successful steps in stopping alcoholism as Islam. The steps were; 1) Alcohol has some usefulness, but very harmful 2)Don't pray while intoxicated, 3) Comletely shun intoxicants.

Compare this with this Biblical rule which says 'Your women should not speak in churches & even if they don't undestand something, they should ask their husbands at home ( but never open their mouth in the church) 1corinthians, 14:34. I use to see the most talkative people in the churches today are the women. But if you asked a christian he will say that rulling is abrogated in the old testament; I don't know which chonology are they showing us.

Your claim that 'Now can we construct the life of Muhammad by reading the Qur'an?'

Aisha, the wife of Prophet Muh'd was asked ' how is the life & character of Muh'd' she answered 'his character is the Qur'an'.

Mind you both the holy Qur'an & the Sunnah were revealed to Muhammad, therefore if you find his life history in the hadith it is ok.

You claimed to have the knowledge of Arabic, but misunderstood the meaning of Tafseer? Anyway, Tafseer means Interpretation & ask any body interpretation differs from person to person.

Now if I ask the meaning of 'in the beginning was word, the word was with God, the word is God, John 1:1, I may expect thosands of interpretations
