The ayat of the Quran are only in Arabic;

the English words are not the Quran;
the English words are only the translation of the meaning of the Quran ayat and in fact they are not the Quran itself;

so in this case you find some way to prevent the Quran ayat from being said to people, and the purpose from this is understood; it is due to your belonging to other doctrines.

This has been for more than one year; is it only now that it is not permitted?

but it is the way of Jesus' adversaries who opposed him to say his words by their cunning and cheating. And he said to them:

You are like the rock in the water fountain: neither do you drink, nor do you let others drink.

Is this a threat?

Then what has stinged you: whether it means anything or nothing to you?

I said the words in Arabic of the Arabic Quran, then I give the meaning in English together with it; but because you want some excuse to prevent the ayat of the Quran of God; so you said what you said and stirred others to this act.

So it is a threat, because I do not accept your religion, or any other and I certainly do not think there is anything glorious about the Quran...It has nothing to do with stubbornness, just my preference for reality over mythology..I am godless and intend to stay that way, so you can keep your ayats to yourself.

1) It does come off as a threat

2) The text in Arabic is only readable by those who are fluent in the language. For Muslims, this gives them a feeling of superiority. For the owners, administrators, mods, and members of this site, we can only take your word as to the 'translation'.

ENGLISH ONLY, PER TOS.

I oppose the Qur'an and I oppose Muslim posters who post the sorts of posts like the one above.

I hope that at some point the constant rants and threats are reined in and that the arabic is disallowed as per the tos.

Your one-word disclaimer only serves to illuminate your true meaning, which, by a process of elimination, comes out as a threat** to us ALL.



**That, I believe, would be against TOS, would it not?

Wow, you have given me a lot of credit. There is no sting, just follow the terms of service, I would have written the same thing if someone kept posting in Spanish or German or sanskrit, or even elfin.
