My Arabic is very good and I can read the Qur'an in Arabic and you know what? the Qur'an is a confused and confusing book in Arabic and in any translation. And yes there are indeed very good translations of the Qur'an and I include here Rashad Khalifa (yes he was a nut but his mother tongue was Arabic and not urdu like you) and Dawood whose mother tongue was Arabic and tablighees and Pakistanis do not like him and do you know why? Becuase he was a Christian Arab. Pakistani traslations like Shakir abd Ali? They are poor translations by wannabe Arabs Your claim is bogus

So you tell us if you really know Arabic when was the last time you used ababeel or sijeel or kalala or Ilaf in a sentence? And your answer is? And how about the poor Arabic garmmar in the Qur'an and here are some examples;

1. Ina hadhan lasahiran (sic)

2. Kadhdhabt (sic) qawmi Nuh al-mursalenn

3. wa ina lakum fi al-an3am la3bratun nasqikum mema fi batnuhu (sic)

4. And is it maaliki or maliki in surat al-fatiha?

And here is your Arabic language test for today and it is an open book test

Wa ma arsalna rasulan ila bilisani Qawmuhu

Hint: Islam is the religion of the Arabs
