Thank you for this cogent reply. I find myself pondering this: when one learns a non-native tongue, do they not rely on translations extensively? I have summarily rejected the notion that one must be a native Arabic speaker to understand the Quran. It an ageless, timeless, and therefore not bound by geography and culture. One must rely on translations, exegeses of others for whom Arabic is native, and one's own intellect to arrive at understanding. To that end, this forum is of utmost benefit.

Salaam and thank you.
