Question: Do the meanings of the noble Quran written in English take the ruling of the Quran or not?
Answer: No the translation does not have the ruling of the Quran. If the Quran is translated into English or into other languages, it will not have the rule of the Quran. If there is no Arabic present in it, it is not a copy of the Quran unless it is in Arabic. But if it is a translation it will not take the ruling of the Quran.
