Lost in ‘Arabic to English’ Translation

Lost in ‘Arabic to English’ Translation

Arabic is such a beautiful language. I can use one word to explain an entire sentence in English.

Even in some cases, in the Arabic language, letters are removed from words to make it easier on the tongue.

Here is an example in the Quran in Surah Hud, chapter 11, verse 28 where Allaah is mentioning what Nuh (alayhi salam) said to his people. It takes 7 words in the English language to translate this 1 word in Arabic.
