Some beautiful positive quotes forwarded to me recently by some friends:
Our five senses are incomplete without the sixth—a sense of humour
We need  STRENGTH when doing the possible, but we need FAITH when doing the impossible
When we are at rest, pain comes to give us a test. But remember, pain is only a guest that will soon leave our nest
The whole world is in constant motion. The earth moves, the clouds move, the waves move, and we, too, must move. Move and reach the destination of your choice
If you desire to bloom like a rose in the garden, you have to learn the art of adjusting with the thorns.

[1, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan has come out with a simple and elegant English translation of the Quran.  It is available both with and without the Maulana's commentary and the Arabic text. Very beautifully produced,  it comes in several different sizes (including a pocket-sized edition), and in both paper-back and hard cover.

If you would like a free copy of the Maulana's English translation of the Quran to be posted to you, click on

2. Many of Maulana Wahiduddin Khan's books--in various languages-- can be freely downloaded from the Internet. Click on

3. 'Spirit of Islam', an English monthly, containing translations of key writings of Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, can be accessed online. Click on

I welcome this new translation and glad to know about the other that created so much mess. 

The most sickening translation is by Hilali Khan - that is the cause of Islamophobia. To allay the controversy we held a Quran conference in Dallas, first of its kind - It lists 60 verses that were mistranslated and the whole story about the conference. 8 TV interviews, 3 News paper write ups...

Hum  loago'n ko quran uss tarah samajh na hai jaisa ke sahaba samjhe the. 

ye loag quraan ko apne tareeqe se samajhte hai aur fitna barpa karte hai.

Mere musalmano bhaiyon se request hai ye zalim ki aur jhute ki baton mein na aye, aapko inke bare mein agar jyada malum karna hoto mujhe mail karen

ye shabbir fully faltu bakwaas karta jhuta hai bada jhuta aur zalim ye loag ahle quran ka dava karte hai lakin haqeeqat mein ye loag munkare quraan aur munkare hadees hai, my inki kitab padhi hai (islam ke mujirim) ye kitaab be buniyaad aur jhuti hai iski shuruvath jhuti hadees ase kiya hai mein ne tahqeeq kiya to wo hadees muslim shareef mein hai hee nahi (5326 &594) aur jab inke maslaq ke aadmiyon ko chand sawalath kiya to ye loag jawab hee nahi diye aur na dena chahate, inn loagon ka aqeedha jhuta hai aur ye musalmaan hi nahi.

Agar hum mein koyi ikhtilaaf aaye to hume quraan aur hadees ki taraf lautna hai kyonki quraan mein hiqma ka lafz hadees aur Allah ke nabi Muhammad (s) ki sunnat hai.

Ye shabbit jhuta hai Allah ki laanath iss per aur wo tamaam loagon per jinhone isske (shabbir) ki baat maani ya uspe amal kiya- ameen

Zakir Naik is a fitna artist. You know what God said about people creating fitna. Islam also gives you the right to express your opinions.

Dear Eugene, please read the full review or at least that sentence in the context in which it has been placed, you will develop a much better understanding. This article has close to 65, 000 Page views so far and no one has complained about lack of clarity.

Please read this much at least:

“Subtle differences in chapter headings signal significant change. The opening chapter of the Qur'an in Dawood is "The Exordium". In Khalidi, and indeed universally among other translations, it is "The Opening". Dawood translates Az-Zumar (chapter 39) as "The Hordes", suggesting bands of barbarian mobs; Khalidi renders it as "The Groups".

“While Dawood's translation presents the Qur'an as a patriarchal, sexist text, Khalidi brings out the gender-neutral language of the original. A good example is provided by 2:21. In Dawood we read: "Men, serve your Lord." In Khalidi, it becomes: "O People! Worship your Lord." Dawood's translation of the famous verse 2:25, frequently quoted, is largely responsible for the current misconception that Muslim paradise is full of "virgins" - despite the fact that the Qur'an explicitly denies any carnal pleasures in paradise. This is because we find "men" in Dawood's translation in the garden of paradise who are "wedded to chaste virgins". Khalidi renders it correctly: "In these gardens they have immaculate spouses."

“The old Penguin translation uses rather obscurantist images throughout to give the impression that the Qur'an is full of demons and witches. For example, in 31:1, Dawood has God swearing "by those who cast out demons". Khalidi translates the same verse as: "Behold the revelations of the Wise Book."
