    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.

    ​How "Kill everyone who opposes you, decapitate them, and cut off their limbs and fingers" can be misconstrued is beyond me.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.
