I go after Pakistani Arabic

>such as the word "becuase"...lolThe rest of your argument is as ridiculous...

Is "becuase" Arabic?It is a typo and get over it

Oh let me see here is a mistake in your Allah's grammar: Inna hadhan la sahiran

For the readers this is really the most celebrated mistake in Quranic Arabic and the mistake here is as follows:

There is a rule in Arabic grammar in regard to the word anna and it is as follows: anna wa akhawatiha tansub al-mubtada' wa tarfa3 al-khabar

This would mean that the above should have been: inna hadhyan la sahiran (see Ali Dashti)

So you see our dear Taj you and I can make mistakes in grammar and spelling as your Allah does the same.

Pakistani Arabic? That is a different story
