Major Concepts within the Quran


I got the file originally from here. If you speak Arabic, then terrific! You should read those articles! If you do not, I will try to translate as many as possible of them simply because they fascinate me.

Just finished translating a second one. To those who have read the first one (about the Quranic language), I’ve improved the writing style and made it much easier to read. It just might get posted tomorrow as well (the old version has been deleted off my blog). This one is a much shorter article, and I’m hoping to get some feedback.

The original writer (Ibrahim Bin Nabi) holds discussions on an Arabic forum called “Miraj Al-Qalam”. I took liberty to translate a few. Please download the file and read it. And please DO write back.

It kind of felt like a shame that they were not in English when I wanted to show them to my friends on Quranology Discussions. It’s a very detailed study exposing the contradictions between our man-made grammar rules and the Quran‘s unique language. Now it’s also in English, just for you!

Always remember that English is my second language. This means that it’s okay if you don’t get half of it. I’d be so happy if you got at least 10% of it. I don’t care if you think my phrases are awkward. Whatever.
