Q: I have a question regarding editing the Quran for videos. I have started an Islamic Instagram page and In Sha Allah I will be posting Islamic content on that page, including verses of the Quran. A couple of days ago, I edited a video in which I used ayah 19, 20 and 21 of Surah Al-Baqarah. However, I figured out that the previous ayah connects with ayat 19-21. But if I would use these ayat too, my video would be too long. Is it haram if I leave out these ayat and just make a video with verses 19, 20 and 21?
A: The better thing is that matters pertaining to translation, explanation and tafseer should be done by someone who is very much understanding, not just any person who is doing random translations without proper consideration of the context which then creates confusion.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
