Difficult Passages in Quraan

Verses of Quraan falsely marketed as “Evil Verses”.

Finding the truth is one’s own responsibility, as it frees one from suspicion, doubt, ill-will and malice,  that is the secret of living a normal healthier life and building cohesive societies for all of us to live without fear of each other..

Prophet Muhammad in essence shared this wisdom, before you believe in malicious comments about others, you must verify them, lest you regret it when the truth emerges. Living a regret free life is one of the peaceful things to do. Interestingly President Reagan had said, "Trust but verify".

God wants his creation to co-exist in harmony and the Qur’aan is God’s guidance to live in peace with oneself and what surrounds one; life and matter. The human weakness manufactures imaginary enemies and spins the wheels of evil in establishing such manufacture.  Of the 22 translations of Quraan available on the market today, 2 of them have been deliberately mistranslated for political gains; one was in 1042 by The Christian Europe and the other one was in 1922 by a Muslim after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. The holy Quraan has remained intact, and not a dot, comma or a period has changed in it.

The following Verses are in circulation and many a times without verification if it is indeed the verse from Quraan. I have found the Verses Number quoted and it has taken me back to USC websites – and there is no such verse in Quraan.  Quraan is a document to help create just and peaceful societies.

The following group of 14 verses was the basis for the short documentary called Fitna produced by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders – a full response was given to this and is at:

1.      Give tidings (O Muhammad) of a painful doom to those who disbelieve. 9:3

2.      Slay the idolaters wherever you find them. 9:5

3.      Don't let idolaters tend the sanctuaries. Their works are in vain and they will be burned in the Fire. 9:17

4.      Give tiding of a painful doom to Christians and Jews. 9:34

5.      If you refuse to fight, Allah will afflict you with a painful doom. 9:39

6.      Disbelievers go to hell. 9:49

7.      Those who vex the Prophet, for them there is a painful doom. 9:60

8.      Those who oppose Allah and His messenger will burn in the fire of hell. 9:63

9.      Allah promises hypocrites and disbelievers the fire of hell. Allah curses them. They will have a lasting torment. 9:68

10.  Fight the disbelievers and hypocrites. Be harsh with them. They are all going to hell anyway. 9:73

11.  Allah will afflict disbelievers with a painful doom in this world and the Hereafter. 9:74

12.  For disbelievers there will be a painful doom. 9:90

13.  Don't pray for idolaters (not even for your family) after it is clear they are people of hell-fire. 9:113

14.  Fight disbelievers who are near you, and let them see the harshness in you. 9:123

As an example of individuals who are working on finding the truth, here is note from a leader from the Sikh Community

Dear Mike,
Greetings. I hope by now you are well recovered from the exhausting Parliament meeting in Melbourne, Australia.

I am working on my article on Sacred Scriptures and its Intended use—misinterpretations.

Apparently, during my presentation, I did not apply the qualified translation which resulted in misunderstanding By our friend from Bombay. I apologize for not gathering my information correctly. I had applied the translation that was posted on the Internet by ‘Quran’. I have no intension of denigrating any sacred books.

You had mentioned that correct translation is available for Surah 15:26-30.
However, a Sabd by Guru Nanak Ji had been misinterpreted by the Clerks in the court of Aurangzeb, and the same interpretation has been copied in Sikh literature for the last 350 years.

I am trying to get the correct explication of the misinterpreted Sabd in Sikhism. In reference to that I need Correct translation of Surah 15:26-30.

Will you please, send the correct translation in the English language as well as in the Urdu language.
Thanks for time.
Wishing the best.
