Which of these translations best represents the Arabic, for Al-Fatihah verse 1?
[This is the latest translation on the site Quran.com]
- In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
[This is the older translation that has been used for many years]
- In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Can anyone explain the reason for the change? Does the new use of "merciful" twice better represent the Arabic?
