  1. Hi Placid Sorry if I repeated what you already knew. I understand your interpretation of 73 but I personally think the other translation is more fitting. For arguments sake though I am happy to discuss the possibilities of what such a translation would mean. So this interpretation would suggest that Jesus/Nabi Isa was nailed to the cross but not killed on the cross. So far this can still be consistent with Islamic beliefs and with Christian beliefs to some extent. Have a good break.
  2. Hi Placid I've included many translations for 73 so you do not have to keep referring back to the earlier posts. Khan : So We said: "Strike him (the dead man) with a piece of it (the cow)." Thus Allah brings the dead to life and shows you His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) so that you may understand. Maulana : So We said: Smite him with it partially. Thus Allah brings the dead to life, and He shows you His signs that you may understand. Pickthal
  3. Hi It's good when people use their talents to worship God like your family, I was referring to the modern music not choir singing or hymns. Here are many references showing why I think musical instruments shouldn't be used: http://www.al-islam.org/greater_sins_complete/20.htm
  4. Muslims use their voices and "sing" in a religious way to praise God. Have you heard of Nasheeds? However musical instruments should not be used and I think we can agree there is no talent in music industry nowdays, like you said everything is sexualized.
  5. But you're only looking at half a verse not the full verse. For Yusuf Ali 73 the full verse is translated as: So We said: "Strike the (body) with a piece of the (heifer)." Thus Allah bringeth the dead to life and showeth you His Signs: Perchance ye may understand. I know you said you're looking at parts of 72 and 73 but in the Quran and other texts too, you can't isolate half a verse and look at it separate to the other part of the sentence as it will not convey the meaning properly.
  6. "Since we learn nothing in school and the press is a joke" lol
