Location...QXP is 100 % correct?

Dear Sir,

I hesitated at first to respond to your question since your question felt argumentative, and I have already addressed the point. But, I decided to respond because it seems many are fixated on this issue of 100% accuracy.

First, I am not an expert in Arabic, nor an editor, a linguist, or grammarian. So I am not professionally qualified to deem anyone's Quranic translation as 100% accurate or not. Rather, I must rely on my own intellect and reflection to glean meaning and understanding. I have read many English translations of Quran, since English is my native tongue. QXP was the first translation which upon careful reading and reflection truly resonated with me and elucidated the glorious total message.

Furthermore, I find that the overall timeless message of how to develop our characters and our communities in this life, here and now, is of much greater import than the ability to prove the veracity of a particular historical story.

Respectfully, it is incumbent upon us all to come to our own conclusions and to cease argumentation where we don't agree.

Salaam and thank you.
