The English Translation is reasonably ok however it does not do justice to
the original as it sometimes uses language which is not worthy of a scholarly
The translator does sometimes mix up his own bias mentality with that of the author who is a a scholar of repute.
However it is our job to present to the Muslims of today some of heritage of our past scholars even if sometimes the translation does not do full justice to the Author.
Having said this we would only recommend this book for students of Islamic Knowledge knowledge who are responsible Muslims.
We are aware that many enemies of Islam will try to use this book 'out of context' to attack Islam.
We believe in Allah when HE says:
Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian. (TMQ 15:9)
"Say: ‘Nothing will happen to us except what Allah has decreed for us: He is our Protector: and in Allah let the believers put their trust."(TM Qur'an 9:51)
