LIVERPOOL – It seems that a Liverpool fan has announced his decision to convert to Islam following Mohamed Salah four goals against Watford on Saturday, March 17.
“What Salah is doing this season is absolutely sensational, I’m officially joining Islam,” a user called Liverpool Family wrote on Twitter.
As Muslims we have the Qur’an verbatim from the Prophet(saw), he recited in Arabic and we recite in Arabic. word for word, letter for letter, dot for dot.
But can the same be said about Christianity? Basically we have a text which was originally supposed to be in Aramaic ( a sister language to Arabic) being written in Koine Greek (dead language which only a few know) translated into Latin and then FINALLY translated again into English, where it finds its common usage today.
Is it possible something could have been lost in translation?

Since the events of 9/11 the Prophet Muhammad has been in the news the world over for all the wrong reasons. Examples of this include the Prophet (PBUH) being mocked in political cartoons as a terrorist and depicted as a child killer, rapist, and adulterer in films such as The Innocence of Muslims.
The Prophet (PBUH), however, is represented in an entirely different light in the United States Supreme Court building. Instead of portraying him as a violent fanatic, as so many critics do, the Supreme Court honours the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as a source of justice alongside other Abrahamic prophets such as Moses and Soloman.
A friend of mine named “Abdullah” wrote a thought-provoking article which I would like to share:
This post is mostly a reminder for me, about the MBC Omar series which was once on youtube, both the original and with English subtitles. Unfortunately it has been taken down, but if you search other sites you might find the whole series.
Interesting account from Coptic Sources regarding the Liberation of the Coptic people by the Muslim Commander and Sahaba, “Amr ibn al-As:
When Amr took full possession of the city of Alexandria, and settled its affairs, that infidel, the governor of Alexandria, feared, he being both prefect and patriarch of the city under the Romans, that Amr would kill him; therefore he sucked a poisoned ring, and died on the spot. But Sanutius, the believing dux, made known to Amr the circumstances of that militant father, the patriarch Benjamin, and how he was a fugitive from the Romans, through fear of them. Then Amr, son of Al-Asi, wrote to the provinces of Egypt a letter, in which he said: “There is protection and security for the place where Benjamin, the patriarch of the Coptic Christians is, and peace from God; therefore let him come forth secure and tranquil, and administer the affairs of his Church, and the government of his nation.”
