You see our dear keith human beings can make mistakes in grmmar and also typos too but if the so called God of the universe makes mistakes in either then it is a fadiha oh do not panic I mean scandal

So let us see the rasm of the word al-rahamn is ALRMHN in surat al-fatiha right? But wait this is a typo and it was edited by the Ulama by adding a shadda above the letter reh and an alif after the letter meem and let us not forget the short vowels the fatha above the letter reh and the sukun above the letter hah and a kasra under the letter nuun and the edited ALRHMN becomes al-RraHMMaaNi and so much for the unedited Qur'an so you see our dear Keith there is a typo in the Qur'an but wait the same typo ir repeated 112 times (there is no Bism Allah etc... in surat al-tauba) and do you know what this means? It means that this is not a typo it is a mistake in spelling and what a fadiha

Oh there is more:

1. The classic Quranic mistake in grammar in the Qur'an is: ina hadhan la sahiran. It seems that your Allah had no clue about the rule of ina wa akhawatiha tarfa3 al-mubtada' wa tansub al-khabar now let me correct your Allah's poor Arabic grammar: and the word hadhan should be hadhayne (in plain English it should be in the accusative case and not in the nominative case as we find it in the Qur'an) so you see if your Allah can make a mistake in grammar then we human beings can make mistakes too

2. Here is your bonus for a Quranic mistake: wa ina lakum fi al-an3ami la3ibratun nusqikum mema fi butunih. tsk...tsk...tsk... the word butunih means from its stomachs (masculine case) when in acual fact al-an3am or the cattle is feminine case so let me fix your Allah's poor grammar: butuniha

So you see if my al-safy (sic) is a typo then I'm in good company as your Allah's little book has its share of typos and mistakes in grammar and what a fadiha

I urge you to abandon Islam and may be get to learn more about your Hindu ancerstors and their civilization and stop being the vicim of the arabs and their imperialism
