yeezevee - I made an account years ago when I was lurking, yes. Lately I've become more interested in early Islam due to posts by zaotar
et al in this thread
glad to see your response dear curious-lurker., yes you are right., zaotar, Zeca and now Altara., mundi and Mahgraye are the folks who indeed are responsible for me to read through the academic publications on Quran .. other wise I was only reading Quran for myself without any interference from outside.. Indeed reading views/pubs of other on Quran made me to change my own views on this manual/book of Islam
As for the problem with that verse, it seems there's some missing text.
Really?? So, what do you think is missing? and what do you think is the problem with the verse?? and what should we add to make it better??
I read that verse as ...
41. 41: "Why would any one who come in contact with Quran disbelieve it? indeed it is mighty powerful book "
So if we read the verse like that.. does that make any sense to you??
Oh my goodness .. look at that mathematical miracle of that verse.. Ha! 41 surah 41 verse.. let me play number game
what a number., 4141 ..... 4+1+4+1 =10 so .. 1+0=1 .. So that should be number one verse in Quran
Or it could be 1 X 0= zero...
Oh well it could also go to Zeeero dear lurker., and please continue to read/explore Quran...
with best wishes
