Salam o Rahmat , I want to be a translator of the holy Qur'an in the future and I need help of my teacher , respected Dr.Shabbir :
Dear Fawad Ahmed told me to try the forum as well.

My Facebook post :

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Salaam , dear brothers and sisters , Could you please guide me?

Perhaps these questions are trivial but they are very important to me.
There is no doubt that QXP is the best translation of the Qur'an.
As you know , Surah Taubah does not have Bismillah. I've read respected teacher Dr. Shabbir Ahmed's author's note in QXP Chapter 9 but some Questions left unanswered :

==========
1- Is Bismillah an unnumbered verse or it is only a chapter-separator ?
=====
2- (If it is a Revelational verse) can anyone omit a phrase[*] of the Quran and Revelation from the text , is it not a modification?
=====
2.5- Are we allowed to place "Bismillah" before the surah when none of the
copies of the Quran have it? (QXPvi : بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم براه من الله و رسوله..)
=====
3- Why is it not known that the Prophet has already recited or did not recite Bismillah before surah taubah (to separate the chapter)?

The precise protecting of the original Arabic text of the Qur'an is my concern.
Thank you all.🌹

========================
[*] QXPvi Author's note , Chapter 9.
"..It is customary to omit Bismillah before this Surah as it is considered to be a continuation of the last Surah, Al-Anfal."
