>al-Huffadh (the protectors)

ROTFL Pakistani Arabic. There is no such Arabic word. Pakistanis have this thing called hafiz which is a word not used by Arabs. The word's root is HFZ and we have the stem yahfaz or he who preserves and memorizes. It has nothing to do with the word the protectors as you claim The word the protectors means al-ladhina yahmu (hami is a protector). And for reference see Hans Wehr dictionary page 188B

This is like the case where Pakistanis call their religious schools madrassas and the Arabs call them al-kuttab!

Now here is your question for today and it is an open book exam: What is the word that the Arabs use for those that memorize and recite the Qur'an? Hint: It is not the Pakistani Hafiz

See what happens when you become the slave of a foreign language and culture?

As for your Allah and alcohol and changing his mind, I find it to be nothing short of being funny. after all why would the God of the universe ever change his mind?

I'm still waiting, where would I find the word Ridwan in the Qur'an?
