Assalam aleikum Dr. Shabbir,
My name is M.Ali, am a French citizen, am writing you for two reasons...
Well I am writing to you for two reasons, but before that, please allow me to express my feeling right now: I am soooo honoured to be able to communicate with you since I have read a number of your books and value sooo much what you have brought forward in your writings. Yes, you just found a new Student!
- The first (official :-) reason I contact you is to personally express my most sincere thanks and appreciations for the wonderful gift you have given us Students of Islam in writing "The Qur'an as it explains itself". T think I will never thank you enough, may Allah bless you, your family, your friends and all those you cherish, may Allah be pleased with you.. I have been reading several traductions of the Qur'an and came across this methodology of using tasreef but never I would have imagined I could approach it the way I do now thanks to your QXP. As a Muslim I used to memorize many Surah of the Qur'an, reading it almost every day asking Allah to help me understand it... And now, with QXP, I really feel am learning my Deen, may Allah reward you for that!
- The second (official :-) reason: I'd like to know if QXP has already been translated into French, since I believe a large number of French speaking Muslims who do not understand Arabic and English would love to get access to a French version. Is it already available in French ( I could not find yet)? If it's not, do you plan to do so? Have you already appointed someone to do so? Please let me know, as I wouldn't mind to look into that matter. Myself am not that good in translating from English to French, but I could look for someone qualified to do the job.
I don't know what to say except that I have always been praying Allah to show me the way to comprehend His Book, to understand Deen al Islaam, and I think my prayers were answered the day I double clicked on your QXP.
Merci encore Docteur Shabbir! Qu'Allah vous couvre de Sa grace!
(Fr = May Allah shower you with His Blessings :-)!
Ali, Student of Islaam
