What Does The Noble Qur’an Command and Forbid?—Part One

October 9, 2014

NOTE: I am reading Bosnian and English translations of the meaning of the Arabic Qur’an. The translations often do not do the justice to the original Arabic Qur’an, so please keep this in mind. Also, I want to say that I am not an official Qur’an scientist nor do I specialize in the Sharia Law. Sharia Law contains the commandments that I am listing, but it also is composed of hadiths (written traditions attributed to Prophet Muhammad pbuh and his companions, and which are in separate books, secondary in authority on Islam ).
