I met an elderly Muslim who found out that I'm Christian. He told me that the Quran teaches the faithful should pray like Jesus prayed. We didn't have much time to talk, so he asked me to read Sura 62 and especially the first three verses:
Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is exalting Allah, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom—although they were before in clear error—
And [to] others of them who have not yet joined them. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
I checked a few other translations. One of them provides a parenthetical that interprets the messenger as Muhammad:
Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم)
So I'm left wondering who interpreted the Quran correctly. My instinct tells me that the scholar who translated the Sura into English is more likely to produce a correct interpretation. But I don't want to dismiss the man I recently met without looking into the matter. When I met him again, what should I tell him?
