"A bird in hand is worth two in the bush"
Jawaid understanding: The things we already have are more valuable than the things we only hope to get.
As you can see brother Jawaid has changed the meaning of bird in the original to 'things' when the English word bird is clearly there. He has also distorted the 'worth two' to meaning more valuable and I have checked that 2 comes after 1 in the numbers book I have from elementary school, so we are definitely speaking about TWO REAL BIRDS and nothing else.
Jawaid bhai has totally ignored the last word in the verse, bush, which is a plant with many leaves, and inserted a ridiculous idea that this bush means 'hope to get' when he should be looking to grow plants for birds to nest in, thus helping nature.
Sayed Bhai answer:
Praised be to Dawood for grasping the true meaning of this verse and linking it with the creed of Abraham and the natural laws of God. We know that Abraham was a naturist who played with four birds as entertainment for his multiple wives and children.
It is most sad that the Quran only believer, Jawaid, has failed to grasp the importance of the bird handling practices handed down from Abraham which we get from the bible, hadith and ‘islamic’ scholars who were closer to the Messenger than us so know better than us what can and cannot be done, regardless of what is in the Quran or not. I am not an English scholar like you Dawood bhai, so I thank you for your great elucidation of this important verse.
Can you please explain this one: Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.
