salatu salam ala rasulillah
I'll pray for you to Oman Allah Peace and blessings in the life
the methodology of last year
was the correct principles to be applied in explaining the meaning of the meanings of the Quran.
And in relationship to the our is, of course, something of great importance. Because
the foundation of Islam is
the foundation of our Dawa is from the plan.
And if we are not
extracting from the Quran, the meanings
as they were intended,
then it means that our
our invocation to Islam will be distorted,
will not be able to effectively convey the message of Islam to people.
In fact, we become a source of misguidance rather than a source of guidance.
And this, of course, is of utmost importance, especially here in North America.
Where it is common for people to sit down and
pick up a use of family
and read a few verses and
get into the discussions as to what strikes them and what doesn't.
And this is a particular
There are fundamental meanings of the Quran which doesn't require anybody to clarify for us.
But the aspects of the
watch do require us to depend on those
who have knowledge, knowledge of the language, knowledge of the heavy
knowledge of the sciences of fear, to give us clarity,
is something which Allah Subhana Allah
has created for us deliberately.
We should understand
the areas under fire,
where the meaning is not clear for us,
in which we require we need help from the knowlegeable to get clarity
deliberately done by Allah subhanaw taala because if Allah had wished,
he could have made the meanings of the
conciseness of meaning
that we will not need to ask anyone
if he had wished,
but it wasn't his wish.
Allah has deliberately put in the
to turn to other sources to gain understanding if we actually delivers
that recollection of the crime
is the responsibility
and its explanation
is with a lawful
Its transmission safely and its explanation. Allah has taken that responsibility upon
unique among the books of revelation
in that it's been preserved, as none of the previous books were.
Because it was to be the last revelation.
And for it to be,
and for Islam to be
a logical and reasonable choice in the minds
of people until the last day
had to be preserved.
a lot of
the truck the responsibility of this clarification,
though he has said that he has taken it upon himself to do so, with regards to us
to the rest of mankind.
The job of clarification was given to Prophet Mohammed Samira Salaam
as was mentioned in verse 64.
When we have revealed the reminder
to Mohammed Coronavirus Allah, so that you may explain to the pupil what was revealed, for them,
to heal for them.
And it was the responsibility of Prophet Muhammad wa salam. To clarify to them.
Yes, the plan was revealed in the language of the people.
It was not in a different language as
in the hands of most Arabs, today, my
And as such, the language of the crime is somewhat foreign to him or her.
Mum was fine.
But at the time of His revelation,
everybody spoke that language.
as I mentioned before Allah subhanaw taala, locked in
certain phrases, certain verses, certain words, certain letters, which would still cause the companions of the Prophet Muhammad SAW some of them
was revealed in their language, they would be obliged to turn back and ask,
what does this mean?
the live related the windows verse, those who believe do not cover their face with transgressions.
the companions of the Prophet Mohammed bin Salman became very distressed
because it's an attraction wrongdoing. They knew each and every one of them had
the true believers as those who do not
cover their face with wrongdoing.
And where does it leave them?
distress. So they came back to me and they asked him about it and said, it is not as you all think,
do you not recall what
look man said to his son? Verily, shirt is the greatest form of fashion.
In the Shaka Lalu NaVi. He said, this is
this is what ally is referring to in that previous verse.
Removing the doubt
this is what the intent was.
If Allah had well in that first verse, the one and so on, and he could have said those who believe do not cover their face, which
would not have been easy
But the point is,
Allah did not do it in order to oblige the companions to turn back to the Prophet Muhammad Rasul and for clarification
because he said that it is his duty.
It was his duty to make clear to the people.
They had to be trained in turning back to him to get that clarity.
So this is deliberate
on the path of Allah, Allah to train that early generation in dependency on the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
guidance depends on that dependency.
I've heard of boots in Pakistan is fairly large movement in Pakistan today that
only follow the plan.
They say they only follow the plan, and in other parts of the world you find it.
what it results in is that
there will not follow a straight path because it is then left up to the individual, the founder of the group or the leading figure of the group, to interpret for the people what it means.
And of course, every human being
can come up with a different interpretation.
The Quran would then become like the Bible in the hands of the Christians.
Each Christian sect will take the same verse
and create a whole new movement.
Each verse has so many different meanings.
Whereas last month, Allah not only preserves the Koran in the textual form, that no matter
has been changed in the Quran. He also preserved the meaning
that is most critical, preserving the letters without the meaning is still delivers in a state of
division and chaos.
So Allah not only preserves
the text of the Quran, he preserved its meaning through the Sunnah of the Prophet samama mamajuana
This is why I said I left to do two things. If you hold on firmly to them, you will never go straight.
To see Kuma moraine in Temasek from the Hema Lanza boo
boo tabula rasa, the Book of Allah and
these two cannot be separated.
And this is also an expression of
our belief that most of the emphasis is on revelation.
Being a direct word of Allah, the Sunnah, being the indirect revelation coming to us.
They are inseparable
in following and looking at the methodology
of the early generations of Muslims
with regards to
some scholars among them in Nicosia
outlines a basic step by step approach to that.
We're not inventing something which didn't exist. They were analyzing the methodology followed by the early generation, the Sahaba, and those who came after them. And from looking at their methodology the extracted principles, the step by step approach
the first step
is referred to as the Tafseer of the
the plan has to be taken as a complete
verses from one part and then develop meanings in such a format and ignore the rest.
Otherwise, you can turn the meanings of the Quran upside down. If you do that, you take verses out of the class
at random, without looking at the crime as a whole, then you can create havoc.
You can start by saying for why alone,
every one of us knows this.
beyond those who pray
if you turn that verse by 1000, you don't continue to do the rest of the verses is clarify wasn't intended here.
You can conclude that it is
plain what is the mean which people who are playing workers
those who are negligent in their prayer.
Those who pray to be seen.
These are the people who are cursed at everybody.
Similarly, you can take the verse from the crime
Don't come near
a strong statement
when you are in a state of intoxication
but if you take this verse by itself
don't come to prayer.
This implies that when you don't have to
have a shower
now's the time you can get intoxicated
after fabulous Oh boy, you got a long stretch.
This is what it implies. If you take that verse, by itself.
But there are other verses in the Quran where Allah says
in the Malcolm
well I'm terrible with
divination, as well as the author's on which animals are slaughtered to pagan gods. All of this is
from the work of Satan
Don't come near it
has to be taken as a whole
whether it is in issues or
as we just talked about,
already in issues of Akira
where Allah describes himself
closer than your jugular vein
closer to you than a juggler then you can take that to mean a juggler journeys inside your neck someplace here that is right inside.
right inside you are new anybody alive inside.
But then, there are other verses in which Allah describes himself as
a hero, okay, Bobby,
being above, transcendent above his creation,
you can take one and ignore the other. It has to be looked at as a whole to get the proper understanding.
Consequently, as I said, the first step in
understanding the plan is to understand it versus in the country.
the second set is known as a subsidiary of
And the first step
is really linked to the second step because we said before the plan and the hours
linked together cannot be separated.
So, if you want to see electrical let me say that the first step is a subsea
look at this versus in the context of the ground. But we cannot,
we cannot stop there, we still have to look at what the prophet
had to say and had to do with regards to these verses
clarifies for us
the intended meaning
whether it be
hedge, all of the basic Pillars of Islam was were enjoined in the plan itself. It is from the Sunnah, that
maybe in the form of statements which departments are talented.
This is his way of clarifying or maybe in the form of an action.
When I was asked about the character of Tottenham,
she said that his character was
in his lifestyle, demonstrated the character which the crime bill, the correct character
in his actions,
he explained by way of
approving certain actions which were done in his presence
in terms of things which were said, we have
where he explained to his companions, the last verse of Surah Fatiha
we ask Allah to show us the straight path, the path of those who are blessed, and not the path of those on whom is a lot of anger. And
those who have gone astray, he went on to explain and they're going home is a lot of anger are the Jews
and those who have gone astray? The Christian,
he explained this in words.
who have rejected the plan,
will find themselves in a situation where they're going to be making up all kinds of practices on their own. An example is that of the movement started by Rashad Khalifa.
The guy who came up with this 19, miraculous mathematical miracle of the class,
dazzle people when he first came out with it in the 70s, MSA had him going all across the country giving lectures about the miracle of the 19 computer calculations of the Quran.
Everybody was, you know, just lapping it up until he attended a conference in Morocco, in which he claimed that based on his 19 calculations, he was able to determine the exact date of Yama, Yama.
At that point, people said, Wait a minute.
Wait a minute. This will be the point we have to stop here. Now. You know, the knowlegeable couldn't accept this.
But she had already gathered around himself, you know, certain followers, ignorant people who didn't have sufficient knowledge to know that this is just something you cannot make.
Didn't know the exact date of Rama, Rama, when he was asked by jabril.
When is the day of judgment and he said the one who was asked was no more than the one who was asking that even jabril does know he doesn't know
how can somebody come up
in the 20th century and claimed that you know the data
from that? She went on to say that there was
Some mistaken verses in the Quran some verses which were added to the Quran, which were not authentic in the beginning, when he first brought this 19 fingers, you see his claim, you know that this 19 proves that the Koran is 100% authentic. And that's it for chapter two people, you know, in our time wasn't a full week and you know, our faith is being shattered and the Western world is on top of us and technology. And here it is, the computer proves that the Quran is the miracle of Allah.
But you see, you see gradually unraveling his original claim. So by the 1980s, early 80s, he was claiming they were false versus in the
following that, the mid 80s
latter part, he claims that he was a prophet of Allah
attended in the first place, it was just a matter of time before it was coming. He claimed that he was a prophet of Allah, and his miracle was the 90.
The point is,
in the course of saying that they were far worse than the crime just prior to that. He said, a dissembler is awful.
man made it up orientalist view that it was fabricated hundreds of years after the time of the Prophet myself. So it can't depend on the Sunnah
actually said that before saying about the false verses.
In his Masjid, or Shankar Masjid in his
in Tucson, Arizona.
His wife used to live sala
de la the men are lined up men and women side by side.
short dresses, no head coverings.
Once you deny the salon, the validity of this will now send it up to the one who has made that claim and people are following what this means. What is Allah is now teaching
hamdulillah in the latter part of the 80s before essentially the decade was over,
Allah destined that he was assassinated. So the major aspect of his fitna was over,
because he was proclaimed that he was a prophet of Allah, and no one to kill him, he would die naturally.
Only to be stabbed to death in this kitchen.
But the point here, as I said, is that
himself and others like him who deny the Sunnah, and the role of the son and explaining the Quran, then will develop a series of activities practices, which will be
the teachings of Islam.
The third step
by what is known as alpha,
or the explanation given by the Sahaba.
They are the ones who were alive at the time of Revelation.
They are the ones who knew which verses were revealed before which verses
They are the ones who knew what took place at the time when the verses were revealed. So they provide for us with this call, as Bible newzoo
reasons for revelation because this now helps us in our application of diversity. So
without this explanation given by the Sahaba
then if we took the verses of the Quran, the one I mentioned before, about not coming to Salah when you're intoxicated, there was another verse which says that
intoxicants are should avoid them altogether.
And there's another verse, which Allah says that there is good in alcohol
but the evil in it is greater than the girls. We have three main verses. There's another one actually to about the bees and from the honey people making intoxicating drinks from it. But these men
As we look at these three verses,
and we try to analyze, what is the order in which they came. And if we don't have the explanation of xaba
somebody could argue that
in the beginning
when the Muslims you know, Islam first spread amongst the Muslims, people are attacking Islam in Mecca, because alcohol and so and so is so ingrained in the society etc. A law forbade it altogether, even Allah
don't even come near it.
But then as the man of the Sahaba,
slam, a knowledge spread,
then Allah gave them some concession.
Don't forget when you have to pray,
when you have to pray.
Then later on, you know, in Medina, when Islamic State is established, and everything is all in place, Allah just gave a a general recommendation, you know, those of you that feel to avoid it, it's better. There's good in it, but the evil in it is greater than the good.
better if you get a chance to Leave it, leave it,
and you do have people saying that
it is the Sahaba to explain to us that this is not the order that
came said there was good in it but the evil
and that some people gave up drinking at that time. Then later came the verses, you know, saying that he shouldn't come to
prayer when you're in a state of intoxicated. So more people gave it up, but they were still combined into drinking.
Then finally in Medina came the final verse.
And when the verse came, people who had the jugs in their hands, put it out, write it in their mouth, spat it out,
to even destroy the containers that they used to keep it in
a Muslim certain containers that he described, destroyed.
It is the Sahaba explaining the events which took place at the time of these verses revelations, which clarify for us today. Now, how do we apply these verses
This is why PacMan Sallam said, nasty, Ernie, the best of generations of people is my generation,
that we should have respect for them
and give precedence to their explanations over our own, because our desires will tell us to put it that way to reverse the order
to our desires.
Who amongst us
would keep himself from intoxication
If it were up to us,
the first level
of interpretation of the Quran is known as the Tafseer of the plan by language,
the Arabic language as it was understood in the time of the Sahaba
This is the language
explaining the clan that way
can be taken from classical books, dictionaries, likely found a lot of rules and so on. So, classical dictionaries, where they gathered the early language and gave explanation of its meanings.
This is very important
in understanding the why, because
And in the evolution of the use of any given language, meanings will change.
a cigarette butt.
In America, it refers to a homosexual
Similarly, in Arabic
words, has evolved
in terms of their usage, modern Arabic meanings of words have changed considerably.
If we don't
understand the core and according to the classical understanding, then we can draw meaning from the crime today which are false. The classical example of that
is found in the use of alley translation of
to translate the 85th chapter of the surah rouge as
of the zodiac,
the zodiac signs
as the Zodiac
This is why
if you are trying to
explain to people that astrology is wrong, and they're depending on you to Valley, they will say no.
How can you say astrology is wrong? There's even a chapter named after the astrological principle of the zodiac.
Why? Because in modern Arabic
means the zodiacal sign.
But a classical Arabic
means the constellation
the star constellations are they are
not the signal of the archer and the lion and the whatever else which the Greeks and the Babylonians superimposed
on the star configuration.
I remember one time
shortly after I became Muslim
and discussing with some
because when I went down to Jamaica, then there were hardly any Muslims there at all, in fact, my
family to try when I gone down there and met my cousins, they told me
to go to the mosque, it was a by temple
hamdulillah now in Kingston, we have a massive massive delay.
Anyway, the point is I came to Jamaica later on actually it was maybe in the 80s
mid early to mid 80s. And there were Islamic spreads by then.
And I met some Muslim Brothers I was discussing with them these are Muslim brothers who are still caught up in the rock Aryan culture
they were still still smoking ganja.
a translation and they opened up and so on.
And they said what
is the verse they're talking about Buddha
and his people and what the law is set for them to eat
you know and it lists
translation I can read the exact restaurant anyway India and the verse it goes on to say you know that a lot of satisfied for you.
Yeah, the last one is the herbs.
Herbs right. And it was a Kasai how phumi How does he how you know, we know the lentils and then as he puts it as part herbs in reduce abolish as late as possible. Okay, so what is this
pot everybody knows pot means marijuana. And in Jamaica, when you say herb, you're talking about ganja
very, very important for us to realize that we can only understand the language of the Quran. As it was understood by the companions of the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, the third generation that spoke that language that live that language. They understood and this is what we have to depend on.
methods one by
one by Suna by the alpha,
this segment of the Sahaba. And by the language these are all referred to as tafsir of the Quran
information, the information that we have, it is narrated to us from the early sources.
The last category
is referred to as the fear of the fan
or by understanding by opinion
meaning that after having understood
so these first four steps, understood in this context, what to say about what the Sahaba explained the language after we understood, what is the saying, we now have to apply it in our daily lives
is now the place for human reason.
This is the place
human reason now is in its application.
So, we're not saying that we're just robots, there's no place for human
input. When it comes to application, this is the place
and on the basis of that
integration reported by Abu huraira
unauthenticated collected and
authenticated in the
opinion based arguments about the Koran is
opinion based arguments about the Klan is
and watch your ignorance
refer to one who knows, isn't the instructions in this regard? opinion based arguments about the crime is crucial. What is it referring to
opinion after you've understood
the narrative information about the crime? No, it's when you start
to explain the crime from your own head. You're not looking at the crime in its context or from the sun now what the Sahaba to say you don't have the language you don't care about the language, you're just going from your own head.
And then you get into arguments with other people about it, you start to present and try to push your way of thought just
referred to as
a warning away from tampering with the meanings of the class.
And what you find consistently
that all of the deviant groups, all of the groups which deviated from the plan, what they do is
they do not follow these steps.
Either they just go straight in according to opinion or they take the language and they use modern understandings of the language
or they use parts of the project in other parts, but not according to how it was understood by the compiler.
So you find for example,
because they cancel the Sunnah, and most of the deviant groups are they do in order to to cut people off from the shoot, they cancel out the Sunnah
or they put their people in between
the people and the law they will be intermediaries from whom they will get their knowledge.
Once they come out from the sun, the only thing left and then then other ones will interpret the crowd. And you'll find each group will interpret the crime to suit their
the way in which they have bent the way in which they deviated for example, in the case of
some of the mistakes, extremely picks,
you will find interpretation required when they take the verse.
So I know the
Go to Pharaoh, for vetterli he transgresses in have elapsed around in nahu.
What do we understand from that? A lot
I was asked to go to Pharaoh and advise him give him explanation about the deen and column to Allah. They said,
Pharaoh is the heart.
He refers to Pharaoh is the heart
because it is transgression the human being when he transgresses it in the heart.
The natural Amara does
not switch commands is evil.
So, what alive actually telling here is to go to your heart and work on your heart. Why because that's their thing. You know, they're into Vicar, of course because a part of the deen but they have gone into it to such an extent that it becomes the most of the deen.
So, they make this kind of interpretation. Similarly, when a law tells Moosa to throw down your staff,
they say this means that a law was telling him to cast aside the material world.
Because when he asked him, What is this in your hand, he said, as fast Can I use it to, you know, shake the trees and guide my sheep?
Don't work, just beg people trust in our
approach. So, therefore,
you will find amongst the more centralized philosophers who
appear in the era
to call the rationalist
that they try to use their mind they put actually the mind over.
And the sooner
they, they judge right and wrong according to how the mind sees it. And they interpret the climate according to
what they consider to be logical and rational and reasonable. So when they came to the verse in the Quran, in which Allah said, and when Abraham said, My Lord, show me how you give life to the dead,
he Allah replied, do you not believe
he Brahim said yes. But I'm asking you in order that my heart may be addressed.
A prophet of Allah, saying he wants a lot to show him about the how he brings life to the dead, so that his heart might be addressed know, the prophets heart should be addressed. His face should be such that he doesn't need it. It's not logical, not rational.
So what do we do with it? Well,
they said, Well, actually,
Prophet Ibrahim had a friend, a close companion whose name was heart.
his friend's name was heart. So what he's saying here is that, you know, I just am asking you, I believe I'm just asking you so that my friend here by the name of heart, you know, he will have to be settled
for the Shiites, because their focus is on
Fatima Hassan for saying.
They go to the verse in the Quran.
And this is one of many verses in the
Mirage, radial. He set forth the two seas and they need
coming from it, the pearls in the car all the same. What is this? What is the pros and the cons?
The normal understanding is that the two seas refer to the freshwater bodies and the saltwater bodies.
The Pearl and mccarl we know what our pros and cons but for the Shiites because they want to see Ali and Fatima Hassan and Hussein and everything they said the two seas
and the pearl and the coral has happened and Jose.
So, everything in the Quran then becomes you know, you read it and what you will understand they have another understanding altogether they will see Ali Hussein in all of this and versus
Indian Pakistan came Ghulam nerissa Ghulam,
Now, he said
the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam was not
the seal of the Prophet because he claimed you
So what is he going to do with the verse in which a lot says Mohammed is not the father of any of you? But He is Allah messenger
and the seal of the prophets.
Arabic language, what is hot?
It doesn't mean
it means the superior.
No, as the ring
beautifies the hand makes the finger more superior Prophet Muhammad Salah was the beautification of that Prophet.
And of course
they claim the property didn't
die out sorry, they claim that he died.
They have a grave in Kashmir someplace with a claim with the grave of ERISA.
what do they do with a verse in which Allah says
well masala boo
they didn't crucify him. Omar Holloway they didn't kill him.
Well I can be Hello but it was made to see that they did. But Allah raised him up.
Okay, what did what did they do with this first
they say well, you know, this raising up, Rafa
if we go
to Surah, Allah insha
Allah says there
were a hon Allah
and we raised for you,
So this is what is referred to here,
Allah in that verse there and he talks about raising the esteem of Prophet Muhammad Salah.
So when it is referred to here, that Allah raised him up, he thing is raised him up, the same thing raised him in esteem.
A person who is not familiar with Arabic grammar, etc. They can be deluded, they can be fooled. As a matter of fact, I remember sitting in
a gathering, which was held in University of Toronto.
This is shortly after I became Muslim, I was sitting there.
And some Muslim Brothers, one of the brothers, to the mom from both avenues from other Arab brothers, meeting with his audience, or having a debate or discussion. So I came along.
And they were debating back and
Andy Hardy, and he brought out these arguments seemed very logical and social.
And the brothers, you know, they were upset, they were shouting at him and you know, make him I had to come easy let the man speak.
So, you know, when we left the room, you know, you don't know what this man really believes. I will I didn't know he was on at the time. But what I could see was this man was very calm, is presenting his arguments very logical, very reasonable, you know, and the brothers were just jumping up and down emotion and all this you know, not really tackling the issues. So when I came out of there convinced that this qadiani was correct.
A person as I said, not familiar with the language can be duped.
Of course, there is a world of difference with
a foreigner like a duck
and Rafa hula Winnie.
One is a transitive usage of the verb, and what is the intransitive usage of the verb? I mean, maybe doesn't mean anything to you. But in Arabic. When it's used in a transitive verb, it means literally, when it's used in an enchanted a sense, it means metaphorically.
simple explanation, but the person not familiar with the difference. It sounds the same, it seems the same. They can be fooled.
one of the
more comical explanations
can be found in the
writings and statements of Elijah
who died in 1975
claim that he was a prophet of Allah.
And his message to the black man in America. He claimed he was a messenger of Allah.
Allah came to him in the person of Imam
Khalid Mohammed who taught him and then appointed him as prophet.
Because these guys are out of Islam totally.
farrakhan is the revival of his teachings.
So he is out of Islam as much
their basic, one of their basic teachings Is that why people are devils
and the colored people
are allowed to have like the law you know, we all knew that you know, there's only a lot you can pluraleyes which is explain to people the difference between Allah and God, God, you can have God goddesses and all these other things. They pluraleyes Allah,
each colored person is an Allah.
What did they do? They went again to use a valid translation of the Quran.
in which it says
in Surah Taha, verse 102
on the day when the Trumpet is blown, we will gather the criminals, blue eyes,
blue eyes here.
Now, of course, the term Yes, the term uses
the Arabic language.
But it refers to a state where the, where the cat is where the cornea becomes clouded and it's a sort of a grayish blue
space where the person where they're when their cornea is clouded like this, then everything becomes blurred. Really, the proper is blurry, blurry eyed, and Allah describes them and other versus being in a state of like intoxication. Again, this is the state that people will be on that day,
the fight will no longer be clear. And
unfortunately, our translator chose blue eyed. And Elijah Muhammad uses proof that European people, white people are devil. Okay, all of this
just goes to show us
the Quran is not interpreted
according to the methodology of the
early generations of Muslim scholars and
then it becomes a tool in the hands of those who have deviated to justify the deviation.
in closing, I just like to remind you that,
as I said, Allah
in the Quran, certain things which required his own companion to have to turn back to him,
which require us to have to turn back to them for clarification, if he had wished, he could have made it all clear.
But he chose to leave things are unclear,
to make us realize that we must depend on the Messenger of Allah and his companions for the proper understanding of the Quran.
is the methodology that we have to apply if we are to effectively be involved in Dawa
promoting Islam. We can only understand the Quran properly, if we utilize this methodology.
So, I will stop here and give you an opportunity few minutes in minutes to ask some questions
of the written ones.
If you are reading the translation of the Quran for the first time, should you read the past year or just be aware not to always take into other meanings of the rotors
when you're reading the current translations of reality
Reading the translation of its meanings, you're really not reading a translation of the Quran, because the Quran cannot be translated, the meanings can be put in your language. And this is what you're reading of course, you should try to do is to get the best one,
there are some that are better than others,
perhaps one of the best ones available today, where the meanings have been clarified in the text itself is that known as the Nova
it may not be that comfortable reading you might find other translations you know, you know better reading, but in terms of accuracy of meaning, this is
the most accurate around today.
So, I would advise a person to get a good translation and they can rely on that until a later point in time when able to read Tafseer further classification explanation of the meanings
what would you recommend? Should we be aware of any tests here that have errors? Actually, all taxpayers are going to have some errors because they are the work of human beings
available in English
as a complete task there
no there is no there is an error.
has used some wickedness in certain places etc.
But in terms of complete tapirs
it is the best one available today. Dr. ribnica here, only one section has been translated it is really the best one if it can be completed in
