    Translations.

    Ok new "rule" here.(let us all abide by this)


    If you have an argument about a translation, you have to provide a source stating it means something different in the correct language.(english).

    Example of why this is needed:

    Person [A]: The quran says this.(provides english translation)
    Person [B]: The quran does not say that.
    Person [A]: Ok please provide another translation(in english) that states differently
    Person [B]: Provides original text in arabic stating it means something different.

    [At this point the argument Person B is making is that his translation is the correct one]
    -Which runs into our problem, Player B has no credentials, no authority on the subject matter, and may not even know arabic for all we know-

    So this is all boils down to this:

    Whether we accept Islam as religion we believe in or not. We should all accept the translations done by Islamic scholars. If there is any difference in translation, you are free to post it, but lets not argue translation done by people here as correct or not, that is pointless.

    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more.

    ​How "Kill everyone who opposes you, decapitate them, and cut off their limbs and fingers" can be misconstrued is beyond me.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    Ok , kid. No verses say that but your too dumb to see the full verses you post.
    If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.
    Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
    Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.
    You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.
