Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad and his handlers fraudulently published Tafsir-Saghir and Kabeer and ascribed it to himself. There are many many issues with these utterances.
Nevertheless, we have came across yet another violation, this time on Chapter 3:7 (3:8 in the Qadiani Quran). Chapter 3:7 has always been translated as “”None knoweth its explanation save Allah.””, however, the 2nd Khalifa and his team of writers wrote, “except Allah and true scholars”.
The Quran says only Allah knows the meaning of allegorical verses but KM2 has added right in the translation (not even in tafseer) that true scholars can know the meaning too. If Prophet Muhammad didn’t know the meaning of these verses how can KM2 say that mortal humans can know that? Also it is strictly implied that God purposefully added some verses in Quran which humans cannot understand. Is there any criteria written anywhere in islamic scriptures which says that some people in some time in the future will be able to interpret these verses which KM2 could provide as evidence to claim this? What exactly has given him the right to even attempt to translate these verses?
I was curious to see if 3:7 can be subjected to a different Qira’at. Some time ago, u/AhmadiJutt told me that Mirza Ghulam Ahmed established Hafs an Asim as the correct Qira’at of the Quran (Never got a reference for it, so I’ll consider it a rumour until a reference is provided). In that case, the translation is wrong. I checked if another available Qira’at has it different, but any differences in Qira’at do not impact this part of the passage (Check link for the different Qira’ats I found). So the Qirat doesn’t change meanings for the part you are concerned with. The only remaining option is that perhaps the Caliph did not agree with the grammatical structure of the reported Quran. I don’t want to speculate any reasons.
Translation by KM2 in Ahmadi Quran (3:8) (Urdu translated by me)
The part where Quran says meaning of allegorical verses (متشابہ) isn’t known by anyone, the translation by KM2 reads:
“””… no one knows the meaning of these verses except Allah and true scholars who say we believe in this book and evrrything is from God and no one can be advised except for the wise.”””
“””۔۔۔حالانکہ اسکی تفسیر کو سوائے اللہ کے اور علم میں کامل درسگاہ رکھنے والوں کے (کہ) جو کہتے ہیں (کہ) ہم اس (کلام)پر ایمان رکھتے ہیں (اور جو کہتے ہیں کہ یہ) سب ہمارے رب کی طرف سے ہی ہے کوئی نہیں جانتا اور عقل مندوں کے سوا کوئ بھی نصیحت حاصل نہیں کر سکتا۔.”””

Translation by Pickthall
“”He it is Who hath revealed unto thee (Muhammad) the Scripture wherein are clear revelations – they are the substance of the Book – and others (which are) allegorical. But those in whose hearts is doubt pursue, forsooth, that which is allegorical seeking (to cause) dissension by seeking to explain it. None knoweth its explanation save Allah. And those who are of sound instruction say: We believe therein; the whole is from our Lord; but only men of understanding really heed.””
Translation by Yusuf Ali
“””He it is Who has sent down to thee the Book: In it are verses basic or fundamental (of established meaning); they are the foundation of the Book: others are allegorical. But those in whose hearts is perversity follow the part thereof that is allegorical, seeking discord, and searching for its hidden meanings, but no one knows its hidden meanings except Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord:” and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding.””
