The 'Glorious' Koran

Just now when I was listening to La Campanella, the beautiful melody was suddenly disturbed by some loud, crappy, monotonous voice from a nearby Mosque that shouted: "ALLAH~~ UH AKHBAR!!!~~~" Very annoying, seriously. This per se is sound pollution.

While they're airing their 'Allah's words' out, do we even know what's the meaning of the words? The Muslims are reading the Koran everyday, and what they read have a possibility to influence them. Influence to what? Let's see.

I have an English version of the Koran, titled 'The Meaning of the Glorious Koran'. Here are 'Allah's words':

Surah 4, Verse 56:
Lo! Those who disbelieve Our Revelations, We shall expose them to the Fire. As often as their skins are consumed We shall exchange them for fresh skins that they may taste the torment. Lo! Allah is ever Mighty, Wise.

Surah 4, Verse 89:
They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve, that ye may be upon a level (with them). So choose not friends from them till they forsake their homes in the way of Allah; if they turn back (to enmity) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them, and choose no friend nor helper from among them.

Surah 8, Verse 39:
And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah. But if they cease, then lo! Allah is seer of what they do.

Surah 8, Verse 60:
Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others beside them whom ye know not. Allah knoweth them. Whatsoever ye spend in the way of Allah will be repaid to you in full, and ye will not be wronged.

Surah 47, Verse 4:
Now when ye meet in battle those who disbelieve, then it is smiting of the necks until, when ye have routed them, then making fast of bonds; and afterward either grace or ransom till the war lay down its burdens. That (is the ordinance). And if Allah willed He could have punished them (without you) but (thus it is ordained) that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He rendereth not their actions vain.


How glorious.
