While the Arabic Quran tries to catch up to the Christian scriptures for universal acceptability, it has built its own Achilles heel. The Achilles heel of dishonest translations. The Power of Ignorance is increased by the erroneous Quran Translation that is in the market. No doubt that the Muslims think that the Christian Scriptures are also translated with similar dishonesty.
The Arabic Quran – Trapping the Gullible
This is a conversation in a Facebook group. Look at it. The Neo Muslim is inside Islam and is asking how he can read the Quran in Arabic so that he can understand the book completely. The Responses he receives is truly revealing the sinister nature of the deceptive cult.
Everybody in the group is prompting him to recite it like a parrot. They want him NOT TO UNDERSTAND THE BOOK. They fear that the moment he understands it, he will get out. If he is not from an Islamic country, he can save his life. The group aims to keep him under the power of Ignorance. I am a cent per cent sure that when the person had asked questions based on the Quran translation in English, they would have told him that the English translation is invalid and you need to read it in Arabic. How are the Muslims any different from the parrot?
The parrot does not understand the Quran and is forced to do the recitation to get his food. How different is the Muslim? He is also reciting the Quran in Arabic not knowing the meaning. Both the Parrot and the Muslim are in a cage. The Parrot is in a physical cage and the Muslim is in a mental cage. Release the Parrot, he will stop all recitation and will fly away. Educate the Muslim and he will soon be an ex-Muslim.
Embarrassing facts of the Arabic Quran Translation
The Quran is one of the most violent of all books. It calls upon the Muslims to Kill, Rape, Loot and do all kinds of wicked actions in the name of their God. It would not stand the conscience of a normal human being. Therefore, the translators have to do the miserable job of coating the Islamic scripture with dishonest words. Let us check out some of them.
The Words of Muhammad or the Words of Allah?
Ask any Muslim, he/she will tell you that the Quran is the Words of Allah. But what does the Arabic Quran say about itself and how do the English Translators try to give it a different meaning?
إِنَّهُ لَقَولُ رَسولٍ كَريمٍSura 69:40
The transliteration of the above Arabic words is “ʾinnahū la-qawlu rasūlin karīmin“. and the literal translation is “it is indeed the speech/word of a noble apostle,“
Now notice how one of the translators is translating the same verse and telling us that it is the recitation. Does not the translator know the difference between the Word of a Person and a recitation done by a person?
This verse is translated wrongly because this will potentially destroy the Islamic Premise that the Quran is the Word/Speech of Allah. The edifice they have built to deceive people will fall. Why are they worried? Is it not because the truth is embarrassing for them?
Does Muhammad knows to Read and Write?
This is another lie told to Neo Muslims by the veterans. They tell these new folks that Muhammad did not know to read and write. Therefore the Quran is a miracle produced by Muhammad by Allah’s power. Let us read Sura 96. Sura 96 is supposed to be the first chapter of the Quran. Quite confusing. Isn’t it?
اقرَأ بِاسمِ رَبِّكَ الَّذي خَلَقَ
خَلَقَ الإِنسانَ مِن عَلَقٍ
اقرَأ وَرَبُّكَ الأَكرَمُSura 96:1-3
The Transliteration is “iqraʾ bi-smi rabbika lladhī khalaqa khalaqa l-ʾinsāna min ʿalaqin-i iqraʾ wa-rabbuka l-ʾakramu“
The Translation is “READ in the Name of your Lord who created; Created man from a clinging mass. READ, and your Lord is the most generous,”
Watch this translation drama by the translators. One is saying to READ and the Other is telling to Recite.
If it’s about “recite”, why was the angel using the word “Iqra’a”(اقرَأ), which means READ? Remember, it’s not the angel who chose the word Iqra’a; it’s Allah. Therefore, Allah chose the wrong word, to begin with, which caused Muhammad
to be confused!
Now if Allah did not know that Muhammad could not read, it exposes the ignorance of Allah. But if Muhammad really knew to read and write, it proves that Muhammad and Muslims are lying and deceiving to bring up the so-called Miracle of Muhammad’s Quran.
In reality, Muhammad knew reading and writing. They have their own Hadiths disproving the lies.
When the Prophet (ﷺ) intended to WRITE A LETTER to the ruler of the Byzantines, he was told that those people did not read any letter unless it was stamped with a seal. So, the Prophet (ﷺ) got a silver ring– as if I were just looking at its white glitter on his hand —- and stamped on it the expression “Muhammad, Apostle of Allah”.Sahih al-Bukhari 2938
Once the Prophet (ﷺ) WROTE A LETTER or had an idea of writing a letter. The Prophet (ﷺ) was told that they (rulers) would not read letters unless they were sealed. So the Prophet (ﷺ) got a silver ring made with “Muhammad Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)” engraved on it. As if I were just observing its white glitter in the hand of the Prophet.Sahih al-Bukhari 65

There are many examples of deceptive translations in the Quran. We will keep bringing out instances to show them. Unlike the translators of the Christian scriptures, dishonesty is the pillar of Quran Translations. With willful twisting of their own holy book, how can any person be assured that the Arabic Quran has any substance worth reading? No wonder Muslims always run towards the excuse of the Arabic Quran to escape from intriguing questions.
