This Ummat to this day does not have a really good translation of the Qur'an in English. Based on what I know of course. I have not looked at every new thing that might have come out.
Will someone explain that to me. We are supposed to be 1.5 billion strong. Not that numbers of that kind ever impressed me.
When you say numbers, I think the epochal encounter between right and wrong at a place called Badr, during the second year of Hijrat -- Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam's, world-changing migration to Madinah.
I think about the number of Muslims in that encounter. And that number was no greater than 313.
And that tiny band of people was pitted against a well-armed army of 1000. And this small group of 313 men with character and courage beat the odds and won the day.
So, numbers mean nothing to me.
And then all that money in which this Ummat is supposed to be rolling: trillions upon trillions of dollars!
And I said that a long time ago: how Muslim money was running the world. Everything in the world, that is, except Islam.
And often working to bring Islam to its knees, if it could, and perpetuate the bondage in the life of the Muslims.
And then there are supposed to be 50 or 60 Muslim countries. Again numbers. And no one ever asks what kind of political, social, educational or economic and financial system these so-called Muslim governments operate under.
Whose interests are they all serving?
And who do most of their leaders really answer to: their own citizens or their paymasters, minders and handlers, both domestic and foreign?
So, all this good stuff and yet not a drop to drink, as they say? Not one real good translation of the Qur'an?
A simple man like me cannot fathom this miracle by this Ummat. Even though it is plain as daylight for all to see.
