Our dear Samer is desperate to prove that his Allah is not saying that the earth is flat

>"and after that the earth He dahaha" (Q 79:30)'

What on earth is this? You have no clue about Arabic grammar mr ignorant. You must have a verb or F3L and the above would mean if you are correct which you are not:

1. he means huwa

2. daha means spread (it flat)

3. And the ha means it

Now if you are correct which you are not because there is no such Arabic word as daha that would mean baydat al-na3ama or the egg of an ostrich and I challenge you to prove me wrong

Now if there was indeed an Arabic word daha that would mean the egg of an ostrich then the syntax of the sentence would be different as you must have a verb so it would be

wa al-arda ba3da dhaalikaa ja3alaha mithl al-daha (sic)

Or and the earth after this (He) made it like a daha (sic) or ostrich egg (sic)

From the garmmar point of view your Allah is saying that he daha it and it would have no meaning in Arabic to say: and he egg it mr ignorant

Now if we are to follow Sibawayhe's F3L and root system and this is the genius of Semitic grammar is that we can extrapolate a root from this verb DHHA (and I'm only using the rasm here) and in this case the root would be: DHA (yudahi or yufa3il) and an egg is not a verb mr ignorant

Get over it the Quranic DHHA means he made it flat and it has nothing to do with an ostrich or its egg except in the minds of ignorant people like you

You need to stick to urdu
