It has been stated by brother Sidqi that:-
“We can only walk one way, if you are right, then QXP, Yousuf Ali, Shakir, Khalifah are all wrong or incomplete.”
I do not want to set another “cat amongst the pigeons” but is there anyone that is 100% correct? Our Dear Dr Saab has many a time said that he is always learning, being a lifelong student, so this means we are all open to correction. He stated that Saum no longer means fasting but has the understanding of fasting as a part of Saum in QXPIV, which makes it an incorrect translation; are we going to see QXPV? (Khalifah is one of the worst translations I have come across so I would not try to attack someone with this!)
The way to challenge this man (Badar, Nur, Bkanwar) is do as the Dr Saab has done, provide an intellectual argument against anything you deem incorrect and then leave it up to him to accept or reject it.
PS Lanes lexicon was distributed by the Dr Saab as a great piece of work but now he is critical of this, so we cannot even trust a dictionary to be correct now!
