    HUUUUGE mistake you are doing.

    An english translation of the Quran is NEVER accurate. It's kind of like Google Translate
    Those who want to properly understand the Quran HAVE to learn Arabic. If not, then you have to carry around a huge translation+meaning book with you. Every muslim knows this.
    Arabic is a very old language that existed way before the existence of islam. How is it that literally ALL the Arabic speaking countries are muslim? Because they were the only people that could read it and understand it properly. They were the only people realize that the Quran is really the word of God.
    When english speakers read the translation of the Quran, they don't understand it. Nor do I. I personally believe the english translation is really weird. Pick up a 'tafseer'(as they call it) and read through it alongside the Quran. You will instantly realize just after reading thorough 1 surah with tafseer, there will be a huge difference.
    I highly reccomend.
    No, it's not a huge mistake I have done.

    I'm pretty sure Google Translate is much much worse, because the translations of the Qur'an would have been extensively scrutinised and debated, especially so with all these people claiming they're inaccurate.

    I don't think it'd be a 100% correct, but don't use that as a cope out argument whenever s.o. ever points out sth in the Qur'an that doesn't go your way.

    I've read parts of it; parts which are kinda hard to misinterpret.

    If you're so confident in its literature then I'm certain you wouldn't mind me quoting the parts and you pointing out the flaws in it / with that/those arguments.
    Please do enlighten me with the pieces that are 'kinda hard to misinterpret'

    That's kinda a rude change in tone towards me.

    Was it joking or was it serious? (P.S. I'm not offended I just want to know to decide an appropriate response.)
    It was a joke xD

    So why was there a change in the first place? (Sorry I just disagree with you here; I reckon there must be a rather subjectively large part of the community who dislike / really dislike the word.)



    I can't imagine anyone to be deserving of eternal punishment.

    And as it's either/or that means as soon as a threshold is reached hell doesn't differentiate between lesser crimes and graver crimes as it's eternal punishment.
    Trust me, the word Moslem and Koran is too annoying.

    The punishment is basically Hell

    In Islam we believe in 2 lives. The first life (this life) is a test to see if we will ultimately go to Heaven or Hell. Regardless if we are good or bad, we will go to our second life which will go eternal punishment or reward

A`ūdhu bika min sharri ma ṣana`tu, wa abū’u ilayka bini`matika `alayya wa a`tarifu bidhunūbī faghfirlī dhunūbī innahu lā yaghfirudh-dhunūba illā ant). If somebody recites this invocation during the day, and if he should die then, he will be from the people of Jannah. And if he recites it in the night, and if he should die on the same day, he will be from the people of Jannah.” (Jami` at-Tirmidhi)
