The only defence which these (misled) people have for their unjust Deen is that it is inherited from their ancestors. Is this a valid defence? Be aware that the Book of Allah is the only criterion of right and wrong, truth and falsehood. But they will never accept this criterion. Hence when they are asked to follow what Allah has revealed (in the Quran) they will say: “No! we will only follow in the footsteps of our ancestors.” In other words, they will follow in the footsteps of their ancestors even if the latter lacked knowledge and wisdom and did not follow the right path revealed by Allah (5/104, 10/78, 11/62, 11/87, 21/53, 23/24, 34/43, 38/7, 43/23).  
 
If you reject this criterion, the highest wisdom and the most salutary regulation are lost on you and Zakir Nayak you are like dumb driven cattle who can merely hear calls, but cannot distiguish intelligently between shades of meaning or subtle differences of values.........

Salam  
 
It has been said that “Truth stands out clear from erroneous assertions” –  
 
Is not the truth what we fight for? The right to seek the truth... Is that not a human right; to be given the opportunity to seek the truth!  
 
In order to ascertain the truth and to understand the essence of the Quran, we need to analyse the Quran using all methodologies available, cross examining works in detail in order to reach a solid conclusion. This must be done so without personal opinions, and one must not be biased or prejudice, instead maintain an open mind!  
 
An individual who is seeking the truth has the right to critically challenge anything, if it is done with rationale and without hatred; the individual should not be condemned. Like trying to solve a murder case, even if the victim’s family are questioned regarding the case, they would feel uneasy but would want to get the case resolved.  
 
No one has the final authority on the Quran; we are all students, regardless of levels of study achieved! Academically, if a professor has written a paper, and one is to challenge that paper, it is done so without mocking its author. Challenging the works of a person, does not mean ATTACK THEM!  
 
Credentials and titles have no value if the proprietor does not keep to the level (not only academically, but as a gentleman who has manners and etiquette).

A Reader has two choices, either believe that you are an intelligent woman with a sincere query to know the truth, or one can assume you as an ill-advised woman who evaluate others thorough her own system of belief.  
 
With all respect, I choose to believe that you are a sensible woman with a serious query. What amazes me is that a gifted woman like you makes an effort to convert Dr Qamar Zaman’s research work of the Quran, into a biblical message of Christianity.  
 
If I carry on with the belief that you are an intelligent woman, I expect a clarification concerning your assessment of Astana’s point of view of Islam through the Quran, and the biblical message of Christianity.  
 
In order to avoid misunderstanding, I’ll try to make my question easy for you; Please visualize a car and a motor bike and provide an explanation, how do you see the similarities between these two. In what way do you deduce  
that the “car” and the “motor bike” is one and same thing?  
 
 
Only those who are badly informed will continuously react with antagonism and mud-slinging as an alternative to pursue a fact-based dialogue. But I believe you are intelligent.  
 
 
Please explain, what do you mean that Zakir Nike is dragging people to Islam?  
 
Thank you

Respected members, Sister Naureen.  
Naureen: Don’t you think ur religion is very inauthentic?  
Moazzam: You have to discriminate between Deen and Mazhab(the religion),Aastana speaks about DEEN E ISLAM not “RELIGION” there is no single word “MAZHAB” written in Quran.  
 
Naureen: How about zakir naik who has been challenging the world dragging people to Islam??  
Moazzam: The truth seeker shouldn’t follow the personality, rather the rationality. As far as Dr. Zakir Naik is concerns he is an intelligent religious scholar, no doubt dragging people to “religion” so called Islam not to DEEN E ISLAM.  
Naureen: kindly come on most authentic and old religion Chrischinaty and u proved it.bible is ur message thanks.  
Moazzam: We deny all religions [ the brew of dogmas and futile rituals], as far as Bible teachings is concerns, its text is evident to have par with Bukhari and Muslim [hadithic books].Aastana calls people to Quran only [as Quran explains it self].  
REMEMBER ! Criticism is acceptable whereas correction is appreciable .THANKS  
 

Comments by: Dr. Qamar Zaman On 07 March 2012
dear Naureen ,may god blessyou ,  
thank you for your comments . I wonder why people become personal while criticising someones work .you have every right to bring out my mistakes.Let me make myself clear that I am a follower of Quran . If my understanding of Quran is wrong I will apologise and change my stance immediately .  
LET ME ASK YOU ONE THING  
If I am following Quran and nothing but Quran then where did I go wrong ?  
I never like to cmment on personalities . If you think Mr Zakir Naik is right you better follow him .  
But I cant follow him as his teachings are dependent on non authentic stories so called sayings of prophet Mohammad and teachings of his seniors  
As far as unity in Muslim Umma is concerned ...can you count different sects on the basis of religion in Islam and if the answer is" countless" then where is the UNITY on the basis of Rituals of Islam .  
Probably you have never counted the number of different mosques in a community or MOHALLA made on the basis of so called religion . If a muslim of one sect hates the muslim of other sect then then where is the Unity of Muslim ummah on the basis of religion .  
Have you ever thought of battles fought between the Muslims only . Is that a proof of Muslim unity on the basis of religion ?  
Have you ever thought why Sayedna Usman was killed , why syedna Umar was slaughtered , why syedna Ali and syedna Hussain were mudered .......................... the simple answer is " in the name of different sect of so called Islam ."  
Dont you see different killings daily in the name of Islam ( where is the Unity of Islamic Ummah on the basis of religion .)  
Quran does not teach any religion as RELIGION is always based on PERSONALITY CULT AND NOT ON PRINCIPLES and always leads to killings.  
Thank you once again .  
yours most humble elder brother,  
Dr Qamar Zaman

Dear members, Sister Naureen;  
It is essential to understand the Quranic terms "MOMIN/MUSLIM" prior to indulge in any Islamic detailed discussion.  
SAY NO TO RITUALS: To follow the Allah’s Commandments/ laws is the best way to be attached with Him, no need to adopt any sort of ritual [not described in Quran].Remember the performance of rituals is the major cause of division in people of all religion, also observe the out come of NAMAZ ROOZA, HAJ DAROOD, TASBIEH etc BEING OFFERED SINCE LONG [look long back centuries experience in human societies especially the Muslims one], we shouldn’t focus the so called Muslim ummah only or any specific country, rather should speak about the man kind at globe.  
Be stuck with Quran only, if you consider it perfect in all aspects [as Quran explains it self].

Dear doc qamar i didnt mean to hurt u. Allah Almighty revealed Quran with authentic translation. Allah has taken responsibility to protect this book whoever will try to change for their own advantages he might be killed coz Allah will never let falsehood overwhelm truth specially Quran. Due to lack of understanding of Quran and salat,hujj,zakat and soam muslim ummah is in downfall today. Not only Muslims non Muslims even, perhaps they could have understood their own old authentic scripture mentioning same. R u trying to prove that Allah has sent his message thousand years ago for destruction among humanity. Ur translation is revolving around one sentence establish a peaceful system so how wud ppl offer their salat, soam, hajj who is already in peaceful system. Our khulafa rashdeen were not killed by salat, soam and hajj. These 5 satoon were created for human welfare not for harming others if people don’t understand its right meaning then whats fault in Allah’s revelation.  
 
Our deen e islam is ruined by different scholars and sects, going through very critical situation. There is only hope doc zakir naik who is bringing the world on one authentic book thats today’s muslims left with only. But u r trying to change its translation and providing a chance to non muslims for contradicting bless u. Why muslims have been enemies of muslims or were they real muslims or munafic? who never let islam be successful. That’s why I request u if u r not satisfy with muslims, their book, prophet history and present conditions of ummah u r free to choose any other religion. Sorry if i hurt u.  
 
Every act of muslim’s ritual worship is caring a message for people but if they don’t understand then fault is not in Quranic verses but in people’s mind and time will prove it . Allah doesn’t need their insincere sajood but he tests human’s love to him wether he scarify his  
 
self(nafas) or not. But mostly people cant scarify their sleep what else they do for Allah. As Alama iqbal said in jawabe shiqwa. I wud say the reason behind my success is right salat and strong connection to Allah. u talk about establish a perfect system, today I am gona scarify my job and peaceful life in UAE for only pakistan. I will get into politics and will try my best till my death to establish a fair system with imran khan. Inshallah. Thanks god our all sects bow to allah no matter how to bless them.kindly dont avail excuses to ppl not to pray. May Allah guide us ALL

Dear All. When one's most basic beliefs are challenged that can question the very existence of the acts that one has been performing since childhood,it can be extremely disturbing and dangerous if one lets go of his/her stability of mind to the point of insanity.  
 
Are we really so scared of doing away with the dogmatic and orthodox beliefs held so close to our hearts and instead developing a rational and radical approach to life? Yes or No??  
 
And Creator says you need to sacrifice BAQARA/Cow( Baqara which means concepts close to heart...) if you want to attain a peaceful society...its not sacrifice of cow, its sacrifice of dogmatic and orthodox beliefs...  
 
Cognitive dissonance is a discomfort caused by holding conflicting cognitions (e.g., ideas, beliefs, values, emotional reactions) simultaneously...so this makes a person get into cognitive dissonance as two contradictory concepts needs to be supported under same banner..(Example, Mater Destiny book pre written and pray to change. If pray can change destiny book then why was it written in first place?? )  
 
TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN TRUTH AND FALSE....WE NEED TO DECIDE BASED ON BELOW FEW POINTS WHICH I THINK MIGHT HELP FOR TREASURE HUNT OF TRUTH ALONE....  
 
1.Put a why to every thing...  
2. If you are in doubt you just look around and you will understand…( verse from Quran)  
3. BEWARE!!! The reason which you got to deny mythology and miracles of other religions implies to your set of myths and miracles as well…Get to root of these concepts to get reality which was misrepresented as myth/miracle…  
4. Think on your own based on new concepts which you come across, if you try to get the answer from religious clergies they give same old orthodox explanation and kill your erg for treasure hunt of truth. And you wont be able to sustain gravity of their pull into dirt again…  
5. Inculcate attribute of standing against society no matter wat...ONLY TRUTH........ be allergic to bullshit...  
6. A known fact that masses hear and appreciate only those things which they want to hear.  
 
Note : Then decide what is right and what is wrong. As Allama Iqbal rightly said " Aye Musalmaan apne dil se pooch Mullah se na pooch"...just 2 cents with my meager knowledge.  
 
Thanks,  
Mubashir Syed.

If a religious person feels satisfied by performing rituals of any sort, (as per his psyche) let him do, (should be No problem at all), but he shouldn’t drag it in the divine ETERNAL MESSAGE OF PEACE [plotted in the universe and in Al-Kitab]. Same as the laws of nature never care about any religious ritual/dogmas.

Dear brother mubashar syed, thanks Allah. I read Quran cover to cover like it has been revealed to me. Once u understand it no body (mulana/clergies/scholar) can astray u. dogmatic and orthodox beliefs are occurred in society if Quran is not understood. As I said due to lack of understand of Quran and genuine history of prophet pbuh Muslims got misled. They need to understand it as its a book of wisdom.  
Rathar than criticizing on each other’s views we should come on very simple and authentic point. Put a Quran on side for a moment lets over to Dr. Qamar sampan’s authentic translation that’s so called truth. Tell me what proof do u have that doctor sahib bringing a right translation? Which team he is working with? What’s connection of his research to the time of revelation? Has he found original copy of Quran from somewhere? He believes in same book excluding some verses that he wants to change regards to eliminating the issues btw our sects and finally peace will be established. Good approach, but for this he needs to bring first authentic history of Muhd (puh). How about the situational verses? Doctor’s translation yet not completed. I think he got trapped by situational verses. Rituals dogmas doesn’t affect on community unless people won’t rectify themselves. All rituals dogmas were designed for right connection and commitment of people to Allah and better society. These are program of righteousness.  
Why Dr.Qamar zaman doing efforts for eradicating salat/soam/hajj. Mashallah Muslim umma already has lost their connection. The thing that’s already being vanished so what we are arguing for? Yeh to soye huwe ko neend ki golian denay wali baat hai.

Naureen: Dogmatic and orthodox beliefs are occurred in society if Quran is not understood. As I said due to lack of understand of Quran and genuine history of prophet pbuh Muslims got misled. They need to understand it as it’s a book of wisdom.  
YES, WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND IT AS A BOOK OF WISDOM WITH OUT LOOKING IN TO HISTORY AT ALL [as Quran explains it self]

WE HAVE TO AVOID PERSONALITY CULT, ANALYZE EACH AND EVERY THING RATIONALLY [BEING THE FACT FINDER] EVEN TO QURAN AS WELL.  
NOW,I PERSONALLY, RECOGNIZED “AL-QURAN” AS A MESSAGE OF ALLAH , AFTER PONDERING INTO IT,WITH OUT GOING INTO HISTORY [ before analyzing I was also one of the blind believer/follower Muslim]  
WHICH TEAM COLLECTED AND WROTE IT, WHERE AND HOW IT WAS REVEALED FIRST TIME, WHETHER THE COPY WE RECEIVED IS THE SAME ONE WHICH MOHAMMAD FOUND THE MASTER COPY etc.  
I RECOGNIZE IT BECAUSE I FOUND IT RATIONAL, LOGICAL, UNIVERSAL, THE UNIQUE SELF EXPLANATORY, NO INTER VERSES CONFLICTS, HORMONAL WITH LAWS OF NATURE, ITS VALUES ARE ETERNAL AS WELL.  
Naureen: He believes in same book excluding some verses that he wants to change regards to eliminating the issues btw our sects and finally peace will be established. Good approach, but for this he needs to bring first authentic history of Muhd (puh).  
THE DIVINE MESSAGE [ALKITAB + LAWS OF NATURE] SPEAKS TRUTH WITH OUT CARING ABOUT THE RELIGIOUS CONFLICTS, IF THEY ARE IN HARMONY OR NOT.  
Naureen: How about the situational verses? Doctor’s translation yet not completed. I think he got trapped by situational verses.  
ALL ARE WELCOME; CORRECTIONS WILL ALWAYS BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.  
Rituals dogmas doesn’t affect on community unless people won’t rectify themselves. All rituals dogmas were designed for right connection and commitment of people to Allah and better society. These are program of righteousness.  
IT’S ALL RIGHT, BUT DOGMAS & RITUALS SHOULD NOT BE PUSHED IN TO THE QURAN, WHICH ULTIMATELY DEVASTATE THE DIVINE MESSAGE.  
Why Dr.Qamar zaman doing efforts for eradicating salat/soam/hajj. Mashallah Muslim umma already has lost their connection. The thing that’s already being vanished so what we are arguing for? Yeh to soye huwe ko neend ki golian denay wali baat hai.  
SALAT REPLACEB BY NAMAZ, SAUM WITH ROZA, SALWAT WITH DAROOD, TASBIEH WITH COUNTING, DEEDS/ACTIONS INTO RITUALS “THE LIP SERVICE ONLY”. in fact Yeh to soye huwe ko neend ki golian denay wali baat hai.  
PREREQUISITE: It is sincerely advised to all truth seekers, that all the Quranic terms like [ Muslim, Momin, Salat, Saum, Zakat, Hajj, kafir,Mushrik, fasiq, Munafic, Salwat,Nabi, Malaika, Jinn etc] must be analyzed first in the light of Quran only[by tasreef Al-Ayat], then ponder into the Quran to comprehend its true message.  
THANKS

What’s connection of his research to the time of revelation? Has he found original copy of Quran from somewhere?

what do you consider as "proof" ?  
 
Verification through unverified hadith books?  
 
Have any of the translators, hadith authros, historians referred to original piece of papers in support for their claims and explanations of the Quran? Did they have the original Quran?  
 
how did they verify something and approved it to be true?  
 
Why should we believe them and not the Quran?  
 
There is no authentic history written by Persians of Mohammed. You chose to believe in their books which are based on hearsay..and you want others to acknowledge your views as well.  
 
you find it righ in your heart to approve the given hadith history books as authentic and true, whereas we don't accept claims that are not verified or proven to be true.  
 
If we don't have the original Quran, then no Quran is original, you have to admit that the message must have been changed ....how would the physical original Quran change the content of the Quran today? Is it not the same?  
 
Is it not the individuals own responsibility to research and check out any claims regarding the Quran? (Or any book)  
 
If we seek the truth, we should ask ourself what foundations we are standing on right now.  
 
Have you given any thought at all to the belief system you have?  
 
Did you make a conscious decision to believe what you do or not?  
 
Did you just adopt your parents', spouse's, or other's belief system because it was what you grew up with or just wanted to do?  
 
If you did make a decision, did you make an informed decision, or did you just decide arbitrarily?  
 
If you did make an informed decision, on what information did you base your decision?  
 
What was the source of this information?  
 
Was the source of the information just what you had heard from people who profess some sort of spiritual or religious practice?  
 
If so did you get your information from their pamphlets, info sheets, or instructional material?  
 
Have you read any "sacred texts"?  
 
Did you research the history of the "sacred texts" or did you just accept or reject them for what they were represented to be?  
 
Did you do any research, the in-depth kind you would need to do in preparing a thesis or dissertation?  
 
If you haven't done these things, how important are you to yourself?

Salam to Astanablog team and all its believers, the oath is, to embrace Islam to believe in Allah, Quran, last prophet Muhd(pbuh) and hereafter day.  
If u believe that Allah’s message hasn’t reached to u accurately or so far its required correction, then what kind of believe do u have in Quran? I suggest u rather than waiting for authentic translation better go back to bible translation. Quran is a most authentic version of bible. If new version being doubtful for u then go back to old version might b u successful.  
Allah mentioned in Quran, We have made it a Qur'an in arabic, that ye may be able to understand. ( سورة الزخرف , Az-Zukhruf, Chapter #43, Verse #3)Wise people understand it the day Quran was revealed, he is concerned with people to understand it. If our scholars couldn’t be successful to bring right translation then why Mr.qamar believing their translation except few words? He should create his own translation word by word. Looking forward  
Then woe to those who write the book with their own hands, and then say:"This is from Allah," to traffic with it for miserable price!- Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby.  
( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #79)  
Then is it only a part of the booK that ye believe in, and do ye reject the rest? but what is the reward for those among you who behave like this but disgrace in this life?- and on the Day of Judgment they shall be consigned to the most grievous penalty. For Allah is not unmindful of what ye do.  
( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #85)  
In UAE we are in very peaceful country, we got one book, salat, soam, hajj and hadees to follow likewise in west as well. Over to Pakistan disaster Muslims they got many religious issues that have been created themselves. Again they are lack of understanding of Quran moreover history have been exaggerated much. As u are not satisfied with our fabricated history and Quran’s translation, likewise being a rational, I found mistakes and no links among Qamar’s translation why Allah would convey same message with different words and verses. seems to confusing a humanity.  
Raheeq e Mahtoom is an authentic book on Rasool’s life and history and I believe in all hadees coz no hadees is against a society and Quran. Doesn’t matter who rights hadees as long as it goes against Sunnah and Quran and above of all against society (destructive hadees) can be thrown away. If u don’t wana believe hadees, what’s matter? Just take them as wisdom quotes. Morally we should follow them to rectify the society. Kindly point out authentic hadees which is against humanity. Any one of u need to understand salat/namaz/pray kindly listen to zakir naik C.D salat is programming to righteousness. “Best explanation of salat medically/spiritually” presently people pay for English courses meditation/yoga, law of attraction; rakee, four dimension and secret video (strong beliefs) are part of muslim rituals dogmas and beliefs. As I mentioned b4 salat/soam/hajj doesn’t affect on people until these wont be offered as required.  
Sister nargas, if this book (translation) and history is not authentic, what’s wrong with non Muslims (west) accepting Islam. Do they don’t understand who r so called best and peaceful nation and got supper mind. On every hajj Muslims being increased. Quran said.. The religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His Will): Nor did the People of the Book dissent therefrom except through envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account.( سورة آل عمران , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #19).  
is He Who has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion: and enough is Allah for a Witness. ( سورة الفتح , Al-Fath, Chapter #48, Verse #28)  
Fact is, Islam being spread gradually.. zakir bhai Agar muslims scholars tumare khalaf propaganda karna band ker dain tum to duniya ko musliman ker hi lo gey.i am really proud of u.  
Readers this wud be my last comment on site. Sincerely advised to all Pakistani,plz our country is burning. It’s being live hell presently. no time to quarrel each other get united for terminating the two big mafia called zardari and nawaz shareef. I request u to come out and vote for imran khan who is only establishing Dr.Qamar’s salat (fair and peaceful system). thank u and bless u all. may Allah giude us.

Dear Naureen, forgot to ask another question. As you claimed to be a learned person of Quran and understood it, please let me know "We need to believe in a religious scripture coz it has got true concepts/contents..... you have to believe in content/concept coz book say so???"  
 
Note : Please try to cut copy paste each sentence and reply for my convenience... coz generally in giving only long comments topic is deviated and it will be like "Jaana tha japan, pahunch gaye cheen...."

Sister Naureen, respected members:  
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اعْبُدُواْ رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ Quran provides TO ALL MAN KIND the eternal values called DEEN E ISLAM[Islamic code of conduct/charter/constitution] not religion[dogmas + rituals], if citizens are peaceful/peace providers and steadfast with the society's constitution based on Allah’s laws [plotted in the universe (learn by trial and error) and/or written in Al-Quran) WILL BE CALLED MUSLIM/ MOMIN and the state will be called ISLAMIC, even Quran not approached to them , may or may not recognize Allah by any name/symbol/figure/sign.  
The merit/demerits of religions is debatable, if any body is convinced with religious belief/dogmas and could afford to perform rituals beside DEEN E ISLAM, he may do it, but, shouldn’t allow to drag it in Quran. As religious intrigue usually do with the divine message by changing meanings of QURANIC ISTLAHAT (TERMINOLOGIES) like salat, saum, hajj, malaika, jinn, akhirah, qiyamah etc.  
The true sense of all the verses/words must be comprehended by the Quran it self[AS QURAN EXPLAINS IT SELF].  
The fundamental goal of AASTANA FORUM is to explore and discover the original logic, reason, rationality and wisdom of Quranic constitution that can be intellectually and empirically established in this scientifically advanced world. And to set it free from myth, miracles, fantasies, superstitions, dogmas and rituals. Quran is the guide book for all man kind no matter religion and culture, as there have been many religions including the following nine being globally practiced.  
Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism  
Islam, Buddhism, Shinto  
Sikhism, Bahá'í Faith, Jainism  
 
The four largest religious groups by population, estimated to account for between 5 and 7 billion people, are Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism.  
Four largest religions Adherents % of world population

We can gather people of this world at peace with the teaching of Quran. But I am sorry to say not with the illogical way of preaching by Mr. Zakir. One could say he is a very good presenter and i am agree with this, he is spreading Mr. so called Bukhari, Muslim etc rubbish to innocent and unaware people of INDIA. But not the exact message of ALLAH which is wirtten in Quran. Why i am saying this because one person asked him about the Salaat, like how to pray? and he gave the reference of Bukhari and Muslim. So, it is clearly visible for people that he is also admitting that it is not written in Quran. I have a question to Mr. Zakir followers that then how Quran is saying that it is complete and comprehensive? Why ALLAH didnot teach prophet the style of pray and why it is not mention in Quran? May be ALLAH want people to make sect and fight for that..because if we vanish the style of pray then there is no fight between sects. I hope Mr. Zakir followers can give us an answer for that.  
 
I am confuse and literally astonish with people behaviour whether they know history of hadith or not. But they want us to accept it as it is.  
People doing shirk everyday but they are feeling proud on it e.g., Salaat (people know that ritual style of praying is not mention in Quran) for making this Salaat more important they are giving us Hadith (Human made) reference. I want to ask them do they know when the first Hadith was officially came to paper, is there any evidance shows that Prophet himself said write all my acts which help you and your generation for understanding. Will there any specific hadith or evidance which states that any of Khalifa asked people write this now may be it will helpful for people at later stage.  
If they were not insisting to write their acts then how could some one can come and write all shits and putting us in the same loop.

Dear naureen,  
 
Your questions, statements, assertions and allegations are not necessary. Perhaps you should refute or challenge the translations presented instead!  
 
Your main question strikes me as very bizarre and peculiar as it does not reflect what is being done here!  
 
The fact remains; there are countless amounts of translators who have offered translations (which contain many inaccuracies) who base their work on previously conceived ideas, borrowing concepts from Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism.  
 
The work produced by Dr Qamar Zaman and the Aastana team is done so on an academic level. They analyse the Quran on many different levels, trying to decipher the content. This is done using lexical analysis, the examining of Grammar and syntax, and critically assessing the verses /surahs and the main themes of the Quran as a whole.  
 
No new religion, sect or group has been created!

Allah Almighty revealed Quran with authentic translation. Allah has taken responsibility to protect this book whoever will try to change for their own advantages he might be killed coz Allah will never let falsehood overwhelm truth specially Quran.
 
 
The Quran was not revealed with an authentic translation! This is the main reason why there are various translations of the Quran available. Translators such as Yusuf Ali have used Arabic Lexicons / dictionaries to try and translate the Quran. This is one method an individual can use in order to verify the claims and assertions of translators!  
 
How do you know (without any doubt) that the current traditional translations of the Quran (done by individuals such as Yusuf Ali) are correct? How can you be so certain unless you study Classical Quranic Arabic and then try to verify each verse?

Our deen e islam is ruined by different scholars and sects, going through very critical situation. There is only hope doc zakir naik who is bringing the world on one authentic book thats today’s muslims left with only.
 
 
Yes so called scholars and sects have ruined the truth about Islam by harbouring the right to translate and understand the Quran! They make statements such as “only the scholars can understand the Quran”. What nonsense!  
 
This is why the onus is on you to try and study the Quran and ascertain the truth without and prejudice or predisposition!

In my opinion, Dr Zakir Naik has a brilliant memory and is able to recall information. However, he does not have knowledge! His claims are very outrageous!  
 
Arabic and Hebrew are both Semitic languages. They have similar sounding letters and words. Yet Dr Zakir Naik claims that the name Muhammed is in the Hebrew Bible!  
 
The word מַחֲמַדִּים comes from the root CH -M-D and is the plural of the word מַחְמַד which means: desire, desirable thing, pleasant thing.  
 
Please refer to http://new.studylight.org/lex/heb/hwview.cgi?n=4261 for Brown-Driver-Briggs' Definition, which also provides a sound file - how it should be pronounced.  
 
Strong's definition of the word  
 
http://concordances.org/hebrew/4261.htm  
 
Although in Songs of Songs 5:16 there is a description of an individual, the usage of the word מַחֲמַדִּים is an adjective and not a noun!  
 
However, Dr Zakir Naik still suggests that it is a proper name and it is the name of Muhammed! Dr Zakir Naik behaves as if he is an authority on the Bible and the Quran. Yet the masses are blinded by his ability to recall information.

If u believe that Allah’s message hasn’t reached to u accurately or so far its required correction, then what kind of believe do u have in Quran? I suggest u rather than waiting for authentic translation better go back to bible translation. Quran is a most authentic version of bible.
 
 
Please think about what you write before you write it!  
 
Who said Allah’s message hasn’t reached us accurately? Your assumptions are very uncanny indeed!  
 
How is the Quran an authentic version of the Bible? Have you seen the original Bible? Many muslims claim that the Bible was distorted and many of the chapters were fabrications! How do you know what content was in the original Bible?  
 
How about the current version of the bible? Have you done a comparative study between the Bible and the Quran to make such a claim?  
 
I would advise you to be mindful of what you write!

You continue to dazzle me with your charming writing!  
 
You are posting the tradition translations of the Quran to put your point across. Let me take this time to thank you for posting this information, but we’ve already read this thank you!  
 
I invite you to challenge the translations and concepts put forward by Dr Qamar Zaman. I think it would be more appropriate to discuss the work concerned, rather that discourage other members by suggesting the traditional translations are correct.  
 
Although we all appreciate your concerns, we’re old enough and of sound mind to come to a conclusion as to what’s correct or incorrect!  
 
You’ve mentioned “Raheeq e Mahtoom is an authentic book on Rasool’s life and history and I believe in all hadees coz no hadees is against a society and Quran.” Yet there is no evidence to suggest that any of the hadith or writing regarding the history of the prophet is valid or authentic!  
 
naureen,  
 
I would like to advise you that this is a platform for learning about the Quran. It is not an opportunity to promote a particular politician or individual who you support.  
 
Thank you  
 
:)

So nice , you agree that Salaat is a peaceful system and not Namaz. Or you don't agree but you will use our understanding about Salaat only because you want us to vote for Imran Khan? Omg I was about to fall for this one :(
