In Response To: Re: How do I translate Quran? (Badar Kanwar)

Would you kindly tell me who/what Surah 112 is about. What is being referred to, and what wisdom is being bestowed upon us by your understanding.
Without this information I came up with the following questions/thoughts of your Surah:

Surah 112: 1 قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ
[You reflect then express without any falsehood that one, who doesn’t engage in worship, is unique.]

Is this referring to something that we traditionally call God, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, or to me who does not engage in mindless acts of ritual worship? So am I an Allah now?
Worship, according to the Quran, is following the laws of Allah, so are we to believe your understanding is now “who does not engage in following the laws”?

Surah 112: 2 اللَّهُ الصَّمَدُ
[The course needs to be repaired and directed to one, who doesn’t engage in worship.]

Without ‘One’ Who gave us the means/course to repair the damage, we will have no course. Or are you saying that me, who reads, understands and puts into practice the Quran, is the one others should direct their attention to? And where does this leave the 'one' which is the object of this verse, the "who does not engage in following the laws"?

Surah 112: 3 لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ
[Neither one innovates nor shall he be innovating.]

You use ‘he’ here and not ‘one’, so is this referring to a human who does nor innovate? If this refers back to the context of Surah 112, then it must mean one “who doesn’t engage in worship”

Surah 112: 4 وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُ كُفُوًا أَحَدٌ
[There is none like one in uniqueness as a contender.]

Again, context. The Creator and Sustainer of the universe or a human putting into practice the ‘course’? Am I then unique, the only one doing this?

Can someone knowledgeable in Arabic verbs, object referral in sentences etc please comment INTELLIGENTLY on that part of brother Badars evidence.
