Our dear mahfooz who knows no Arabic and has the audacity to debate an issue of a language that he does not know

*{Praise be to God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;}*(Al-Fatihah 1:2)

Well let us see what the aya says:

al-hamdu lillahi rabbi al-3aalameen

Or:

1. al-hamd means the praise

2. lillahi means to Allah

3. Rabb means the God

4. al-3alaameen means worlds/peoples (the word 3alam means people and it can also mean world and the plural is 3alaameen and for this see Q21:107 where the word must be read as the peoples and for this see Pickthall)

And because this sura has no Qul in it I must regard the above as the words of Muhammad ( so much for the Qur'an being the word of Allah) and he is saying:

Praise to Allah the God of the peoples (and for this see below)

Now let us examine your plagiarised translation and here are the mistakes:

1. "To God: no it says to Allah. If your plagiarized translation was correct it would have been:

Alhamdu lil Ilah

Where the word Ilah means God. So your claim here is bogus

2. Then we have your bogus "Cherisher and Sustainer" it says Rabb which means God (and no it does not mean Lord. The word Lord means Sayyid) if your plagiarized translation was correct it would have been:

al-ladhi yurabi wa al-ladhi yasnad. Your claim is bogus and see what happens when you read and believe tendentious and poor translations and in this case by the wannabe Arab Yusuf Ali?

Now so who are really those al-3aalameen. To understand this word we must first read the word first and in Arabic the rasm is:

AL3MIIN

This was edited by the 3Ulama by adding the following:

1. add a sukun above the lam

2. add the missing long alif after the letter 3ayn

3. add a kasra below the meem

4. add a sukun above the yeh and add two diacritical points below the yeh

5. add a fatha above the noon

And now we have

al-3AALamIINa (the lower case is the tashkeel). So much for the unedited Qur'an

Now if you read the rest of the sura you will notice that Muhammad tells us more about al-3aalamiin or the peoples and according to the 3Ulama they are :

1. al-ladhina an3amta 3alihum or his Hijazi Arabs that became Muslims

2. al-maghdubi a3layhum or the Jews

3. al-daaleen or the Christians

So the peoples or al-3Aalamiin are the Muslims, Jews and Christians and these are the groups of people that Muhammad met and knew about

But missing here would be your Hndu ancestors and Buddhists and atheists and pagans etc.... Do you know what this means?

1. It means that your Allah had no clue, for example, about Hindus, which means that your Allah was a local Arabian deity that was cluless about anything beyond Arabia and that Allah is not the God of your ancestors the Hindus

2. And by not including the above 3aalamiin your Allah cannot be their God

He never defines himself as the God of all Arabs or even the God of all Muslims only, but He is God of all things, including all mankind:

Bogus again the word for mankind is: al-bashar! where do you see the word al-bashar here?Your claim is bogus

And like I say: Q14:4 says that islam is the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only and you ain't no Arab

Stay tuned for more
