Allahu Abha, anonjan,

You still remember what I said at convention? I don't think anyone here reasonably questions your faith, your devotion, your curiousity, your passion, or your integrity in your pursuit of your Lord - a burning desire to be ever nearer to Him. If anyone does, please contact me and do so at your own risk; Jonah would not be happy w/ what I would do on this board.

You are once again quite correct that all should turn to the text, authenticated texts, and next to the authorized translations of the only interpreter, and then to translations which were done in the manner described by the Master (with boards of experts in the source and target langauges).

You raise an excellent point, one I do not have the answer to. I shall air the question abroad. I know not whether there will be a good answer, or misudnerstanding of the question and the questioner, BUT, if there is no light I will not bring back a response.

Sadly, the quotations appear to have not taken well to HTML, at least in my browser they look like a string of question marks, and in the source I see they are not: "?? ??? ??? ??? ?????? ???????? ?? ???? ?? ??? ??? ???? ??? ???? ????? ?????? ??? ????? ????? ????? ?????? ???? ????? ????? ????? ??? ???? ??????? ?? ?????? ???? ????? ??????? ??????? ?????????" Were these in a basically Latin alphabet, or Arabic letters?
