Help Needed Proofreading Quran Translation

Yesterday, 09:27 PM

Posted By ernobe in The Greatest Book on Earth!
Hi all,
 
I recently noticed a few errors in the online version of A.J. Arberrys' translation.  I think someone probably copy - pasted content which did not turn out as expected, due to the odd way the content is arranged in the printed version.
 
It is online at several places as the only translation by a non-Muslim that is deemed worthy. 
 
Those who would like to help me in the effort to have an error-free version can compare the common online version as found here: https://archive.org/details/QuranAJArberry with the version I'm working on located here: https://archive.org/details/ArberryKoran
 
So far I've found errors at 22:18 and 25:18. When such obvious errors as these are reported to me here, I will be glad to upload a corrected version.
 
Thanks
Roy

The Ruling Of The One Who Stops Performing Prayer

 The Ruling of the One who Stops Performing Prayer  


1- The one who stops performing As-Salah due to denying its obligation:

If he is ignorant about the issue, then he should be informed. Subsequently if he persists on rejecting its obligation, he becomes a disbeliever, as he belies Allah Almighty, His Messenger ﷺ and the consensus of the Muslims.2- The one who stops performing prayer out of laziness:

Whosoever stops performing As-Salah intentionally out of laziness, has disbelieved. It is upon the ruler to order him to perform As-Salah and also advise him, for three days, to repent for abandoning it. Subsequently, if he repents and returns to making the As-Salah, he is spared. But if he does not start praying again, he is killed for apostasy. This is in accordance with the Prophet’s ﷺ statement:

“The covenant which is between us and them (the disbelievers) is the prayer; so whosoever leaves it has disbelieved.”
[ Source: At-Tirmidhi.] Also his saying:
“Indeed between a man, and shirk and kufr, is abandoning As-Salah.”
[ Source: Muslim.]

The Ayah That Led Professor Arthur Alison To Islam

19 Feb 2017

Posted By Absolute truth in The Greatest Book on Earth!

Professor Arthur Alison is the head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the University of London. For several years he had been the president of the British Society for Psychological and Spiritual Studies. In the course of his study of religions, he got acquainted with Islam.

When he compared Islam with the religions and creeds he had studied, he found it suited his inborn nature and satisfied his requirements.

He was invited to the First Islamic International Conference on the Medical Illimitability in the Quran held in Cairo in September 1985 under the auspices of the Egyptian Medical Syndicate.

In the conference he presented a paper on the psychological and spiritual methods of therapy in the light of the Holy Quran, in addition to another paper on sleep and death in the light of Verse 39:42 in the Quran which he presented in collaboration with Dr. Mohammed Yahya Sharafi. The facts presented were an eye opener to him.

At the concluding session of the Conference, attended by Sheikh Jad Al-Haq, the Egyptian Minister of Awqaf, Dr. Mohammed Ahmady and Dr. Mohammed Yahya Sharafi, Professor Alison declared that Islam is the religion of truth and inborn nature with which Allah has created man. Then he uttered the two testimonies, saying that he bears witness that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah.

In an interview given to the Arabic-weekly, Al-Muslimoon, he narrated the story of his conversion to Islam saying:

“In the course of my study of psychology and related subjects as the president of the British Society for Psychological and Spiritual Studies, I got acquainted with religions. I studied Hinduism, Buddhism and some other religions and creeds. When I studied Islam, I compared it to other religions.

During the conference on Medical Illimitability in the Quran, I could realize that the difference was great. Then I was convinced that Islam is the most proper religion that befits my inborn nature and conduct. In the heart of my heart I had felt that there is a God controlling the Universe. He is the Creator.

Therefore, when I studied Islam, I found that it did not conflict with reason and science. I believe that is the revealed religion from the one and only God. As I witnessed the truth, I uttered the two testimonies. The moment I uttered Shahadah, I was overwhelmed by a strange and ineffable feeling mingled with ease, comfort and satisfaction.”

He went on to say that the material world is now in a critical stage, what they say and see, does not explain the facts precisely. Here lies the responsibility of Muslims who could meet the wondering and perplexed humanity.

Prof. Abdullah Alison added that he, along with Dr. Mohammed Yahya, had presented in the conference on the Medical Illimitability in the Quran a paper focusing on the meaning of the Quranic verse:

{It is Allah Who takes away the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those (souls) for which He has ordained death and sends the rest for a term appointed. Verily, in this are signs for a people who think deeply.} (Quran 39:42)

Through this verse, he said, they could prove that death and sleep are similar phenomena in which souls depart from the body. In the case of sleep, the soul returns to the body but in death it does not.

This verse reminds us that “taking the souls” means both sleep and death. This fact has been proved through parapsychological studies which are related to three main domains.
