The article was meant to show how deviated we can become by taking literal verses of the Quran as allegorical, or stretching the meanings beyond breaking point. It was a sarcastic comment on the "evidence" presented Haqiqat Saum.

The refernce at the beginning to the comedy Pakistani programme was a big clue; they mimic notable personalities and turn everything into a joke. That was my intention. Stretching and distorting the words of the Quran to fit our beliefs is also making a mockery of it's teachings.

We can only go so far with our understanding of the Quran before we start alienating ourselves from the people we are trying to convince are on the wrong path, the Ajami influenced Muslims. When there is no clear evidence for abandoning fasting, then our cause is weakened by saying it is not there in the Quran in a month of Ramadan. Dr Zaman and Mr Sherazi have not presented conclusive evidence for their beliefs, the jury is still "out" on this issue.

Salam
